It is quite probable that Sally Goodman's family were not Yiddish speakers -
but only spoke German. My father's family are mainly >from Southern Germany
and it was certainly the case there.
My grandmother's parents spoke German to each other - when they didn't want
the children to understand them!
When my late grandmother went to an old people's club and the other people
spoke Yiddish, they used to think that she was being snobbish when she said
that she didn't understand Yiddish.
The first time my father heard of cholent was when he attended my cousin's
barmitzvah - he would have been about 40 then.
