I like Oxford... it usually isn't missing any words when I look things up.

A foolish heart will call on you to toss your dreams away, then turn around and blame you for the way you went astray. - Grateful Dead, Foolish Heart

I had a concise Alkalai which was good, but a little outdated. There is the red Silberman and also Oxford (not for students) edited by Yaacov Levy , Kernerman and  Lonnie Kahn Publishers. None of them is perfect, but they are helpful.

Sverdlovsk, or perhaps a Yiddish dictionary.  And for the definition of surname, try Pesek.
