Wow, blogs in Yiddish! My mother would love that! As long as the wording is in English instead of Hebrew; I'm pretty sure she can read Hebrew a bit, but as Yiddish is a mostly spoken language (at which she's fluent) it'll be far easier for her to look at the ones with English letters...

I found this website from "The Society to Establish Yiddish as the National Language of Israel." I thought you might enjoy it. It has a great Yiddish video with Jerry Seinfeld in addition to the weather in Yiddish, a Yiddish wikibook and more. Enjoy!
