This is a common misunderstanding. There is no language that is a combination of German and Hebrew. You're clearly talking about Yiddish, but Yiddish is not a combination of German and Hebrew.

Yiddish is a old dialect of high German. The confusion lies with the fact that there are many borrowed words from 11 different languages including some Hebrew words, and it is written with the Hebrew alphabet. But other than the alphabet and a few borrowed words, Hebrew plays no role in Yiddish.
