Re: Yiddish?

Absolutely - this was a very jarring usage with no place in an august organ like the Reg (the pejorative overtones of its use in this way should be obvious). The official language of Israel is Hebrew. I'm sure this was just carelessness, but it's not a great look.

(I'm neither Jewish nor Israeli, BTW, just someone who cares about how words are used.)
