Pronounced hay-mish, this Yiddish term describes something or somewhere that is homey, warm and unpretentious.

In traditional Jewish times, it was used to indicate something reminiscent of a Jewish home, like homemade kugel and potato latkes (two traditional Jewish dishes).

You can also use it to describe people who are friendly and warm.
