The Spiel

Everyday Yiddish is dedicated to celebrating Yiddish language and Jewish culture in all its glory, sarcasm and wit.

The idea grew from personal experience. I love stationery and pride myself on finding the right card for the right person for the right occasion. I realized there aren't enough greeting cards that use my favourite Yiddish words and expressions and speak from a Jewish voice. I decided to take matters into my own hands and start designing the products that I want to give to my friends and family for simchas and everyday situations.

As a graphic designer, the Everyday Yiddish designs marry my love of lettering and language, illustration and idioms, and aim to put a smile on your face. Let's keep the Yiddish conversation going for generations to come, and let's all send more letters to the people we love.

New products and designs will be added to the shop often, so please stop by again soon!

Jody aka Everyday Yiddish 

Jody Kamen is a graphic designer who loves typography, colour and a good pun. She’s worked, lived, and eaten many bagels in both Toronto and New York. Based in Toronto, Jody launched Everyday Yiddish in May 2021 after many years of wishing Jewish greeting cards were a little less blue and a lot more in her own voice. She’s a Jewish Day school grad who eats traif and has the chutzpah to think she can make Yiddish cool.
