shnor (third-person singular simple present shnors, present participle shnorring, simple past and past participle shnorred)

  1. To beg or wheedle.
    • 2008, Stanley J. Schachter, Laugh for God's Sake: Where Jewish Humor and Jewish Ethics Meet:
      Many among them made no pretense of seeking gainful work. In fact, from their perspective, work would have undermined their sense of self. In their eyes, shnorring was their true calling, a profession they created for themselves through a combination of persistence and ingenuity.
