I have nothing against Germany or the German language, but Ashkenazi Jews, especially those descended from Eastern European Holocaust survivors, should learn Yiddish, NOT German! That would be the best way to bridge the generation gap, learn more about one's ancestors and the over 1000 year history of Yiddish-based civilization in Europe and reclaim Yiddish as a secular language from the Haredim. By the way the, I would give the same advice to Sephardic Jews, i.e. learn Ladino! I have studied Yiddish and am an avid reader of Yiddish literature (altough it is almost impossible to find Yiddish books in Tel Aviv!). It is an amazing language with an incredible literary history. It is just such a pity that young Israelis choose to learn German rather than Yiddish...
