Final Forms of Yiddish Letters

Some letters in the Yiddish alphabet have two forms—one that is used when the letter appears at the end of a word, and one that is used everywhere else.

Drag the letter from the right column into the appropriate spot in the middle column so that they all match up with the letters on the left, then check your answers.
