The Litvak and Galitsyaner (Ashkenazi Jewish Descendants)
One of the differences between the Litvak and the Galitsyaner was Yiddish pronunciation. The word for ‘Meat’ was Litvak “Fleish”, and Galitsyaner “Flaaysh”.
Mom told of Litvak and Galitsyaner wolves. The Litvak asked the Galitsyaner: “What’s in your mouth?” – The Galitsyaner responded “Flaaysh” – open-mouthed, the meat fell out – the Litvak snatched it. The Galitsyaner asked the Litvak: “What’s in your mouth?” – He replied: “Fleish” – jaws firmly closed, retaining the meat.
In this photo, the Plesiosaur – a Litvak – still grips with his jaw tight, long after his own ‘Fleish’ has fallen away.
