* Munch only occasionally used Yiddish on ''HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'', although he did once teach it to Kellerman for his own amusement. It did, however, come in handy after he switched over to ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', when they suspected a Rabbi of sexual misconduct and he fled New York to a Jewish community upstate where even the cops were Jewish and decided to shelter him. When Munch and Stabler arrive their local police contact is told (In Yiddish) to keep them away from the synagogue, and Munch overhears and thus deduces where the Rabbi is being hidden.
