We feel in Yiddish

My father's family came from Sedgley in the Birmingham region. Dad used lots of rhyming slang and also some interesting phrases and words, no doubt gleaned from his father's family. One phrase has me stumped. When Dad wanted to know how much something cost, he would say: "We feel in Yiddish?" Can anyone throw some light on this phrase please?
