Alexander Harkavy (1863-1939) is credited with almost single-handedly creating an intellectual environment conducive to Yiddish, and his trilingual dictionary is an indispensable tool for research in Yiddish language and literature. This dictionary has been a classic since it originally appeared in New York in 1925. "Among the most important books...in the field of Yiddish."--Ruth Wisse, professor of Yiddish Literature, Harvard University
