What does “Luftmensch” mean?
Some people just have their heads in clouds. They seem to be free from the worries of life, often seeking and finding solace in their own little worlds. They wander off into their own dreams, and sometimes end up being completely impractical! There’s a Yiddish word for people such as these, and it’s Luftmensch, pronounced [loohft-men-t-sh]. It literally translates to air person, and refers to people who have a tendency to be dreamers, and who end up in impractical situations due to this habit. Do you know any Luftmensch around you?
