Yenne-velt

Yiddish word of the week:
Yenne-velt: Literally “other world”. Used to indicate the afterlife or the world to come. Also used in the context of a place which is really far away or in the “middle of nowhere”.
E.g.- Randi, Lenny, Bob and Ina were on their way to the club, and it was taking an unusually long time. Ina said, “what’s beyond yenne-velt? because that’s where this place is!”
