Indeed.  Yiddish is an everyday language, not a ritual one.  Bar
mitzvahs are full of Hebrew, and such rituals are part of what kept
that language alive in any sense before it was revived in the 19th
century.

Also, tlhIngan Hol doesn't sound very much like Hebrew or Yiddish, but
it sounds much more like the former than the latter, which is closer
to German.
