Keeping Yiddish alive and a rare bookshop open

From the BBC - pity you can't embed the viewer - a look at the last secular bookshop in New York which is facing closure by the end of this year.

In this first person account owner Hy Wolfe talks about his mission to keep both the bookshop and his language (Yiddish) alive.

Video is five minutes long. (And I love Moishe the baker).
