what is the origin of the word 'Yekka'?
Shirley Cirlin
02:31:12
israelis called German immigrants that as they
Linda Henry Goodman
02:31:51
My understanding is that it comes from "jacket," which the German Jews wore -- rather formal people in many ways, as we understand.
Claudia
02:32:01
as a lighting designer, that nasty pedestrian unflattering fridge light is very evocative
Joanne
02:32:53
perhaps related to Yicchus?
Fredi

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yekke
Shirley Cirlin
02:33:13
were always dressed formally and wore jackets and so they reffered to the jackets and mispronounced and called it "yakkets" and eventually all Germans in Israel were called "yekkes"
Barbara Green
02:35:03
I think the jackets were made by Jaeger so the Hebrew turned it into "Yekke" and so the German refugees were called "yekkes."
Leonie Kramer
02:36:57
Yekkes have Yicchus as well as jackets!
Dan
02:40:59
Yekke is also an abbreviation of the Hebrew “Yehudi Kshe Havana” A Jew who does’t understand well.

A friend who lived in Yemin Moshe where Amichai also lived said she saw him every Shabbat walk with his shopping bag to the shuk. He was completely un-prepossessing so one could easily not recognize him.
