this article needs to be changed as the logic of article is historicaly wrong, jewish surnames with german roots are not derivatives of yiddish, but directly of 18th centiry or 19th century german language as both austrian and german empires created spceial commicions "surnaming" the jewish population. they were either german or austrian and they would not use yiddish in giving jews theris surnames. back to the article Garfunkel as surname comes directly from Karfunkel, as does historicaly earlier created yiddish word wich is not the source of surname.
