Mazel tov to Avital! Much nachas. Or nachat. How do you say nachas in Russian?

Thanks!
It's in Yiddish. But in "our" Yiddish we say nahas. One of the few words I knew from childhood.

Nachas
Nachas = Yiddish
Nachat = Hebrew
English? pride and pleasure? joy or blessings,pride especially from ones children, grandchildren

In Mexican slang, it means 'Ass Cheeks'.

Re: Nachas
I always thought it was happiness. And joy, I guess.

Mexicans have all the fun!
