The nickname: “Yudel” (with a proper ‘yud’ sound at the beginning) Is for the male Hebrew name- Yehuda. Udel and Yudel may sound the same to those who drop the “Y” sound at the beginning of words. Such is the case for those who hail from certain areas of Lita/Poland and is true for some Israelis today.>
