mazal77 that was a great answer- no matter what “sect” you consider yourself to be a part of, you are a jew just like the rest of us and essentially brothers and sisters, after all, we share a father… aside from sefardic and ashkenazic which is dependent on ancestry everythings relative as to what you consider yourself today does heimishe mean chassidish, yeshivish, or used in the denomination of homey or chilled out… anyone want to do an official YWN dictionary?January 13, 2009 4:39 am at 4:39 am #631897qwertyuiopMember

Brook, are you persian??January 13, 2009 5:43 am at 5:43 am #631906
mazal – not even close!January 13, 2009 5:49 am at 5:49 am #631907
brook is Israeli.January 13, 2009 5:53 am at 5:53 am #631908
lol i’m american. my grandparents are israeli and my father was born there.
but, that doesn’t say where my family is originally from and what minhagim i keep.
AND – most of my minhagim are actually from my mother’s side so i identify with them much more. now, where am i from? lol :}January 13, 2009 6:30 am at 6:30 am #631909
brook, you speak with a sefardic/israeli havara.January 13, 2009 6:40 am at 6:40 am #631910
oh do i? only sometimes. and ask syriansephardi – there are a million sects within the sfardi group.January 13, 2009 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #631912
okay, so which of the million do you belong to? (now don’t go denying the truth again…)January 13, 2009 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm #631913veyatzivMember
Brooklyn-Egypt?January 13, 2009 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #631914
I wouldn’t say a million sects in the syrian sephardi, Turkish, Moroccan, Lebanese, Persian, Egyptian and Syrian From Aleppo and Syrian from Damascus.January 13, 2009 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #631915
i like this topic- doesn’t HAVE to get controversial.
you will believe this- i’m as tzimisht as mazal77 (not as extreme, but close). and “Well, after this long galus, I think we’re all mixed up”- couldn’t agree more
now once again i will do some analyzing and guessing:
joseph, asdf, qwerty, moish01, squeak, RY, BYM are obviously ashkenazi
chacham is sephardi
Charlie Brown, Curious, [email protected] and beacon are… American?January 13, 2009 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm #631916
areivim – that must have been a very tough guess. Americna is not an exclusive description.January 13, 2009 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #631917
curious: what makes you exclusive?January 13, 2009 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #631918
areivim, you really want me to tell you why I’m exclusive? The list is mighty long!
BTW, I was sniffling cuz you left me single.January 13, 2009 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #631919surferMember
areivim u left me out????????January 13, 2009 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #631920
areivim – and i’m not zoche to be mentioned, or what???
mazal – you do know that Turkish, Moroccan, Lebanese, and Persian are not Syrian. and you missed out on Aden, Libya, Iraqi and probably some more.
veyatziv – i’m not egyptian
and Joseph – i thought you knew everything! apparently not… :}January 13, 2009 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #631921AL2Participant
Am I the only one who is Ashkenaz? Wow, I’m unique! 🙂January 13, 2009 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #631922

Boy, I must be on “joseph’s mind these days….I have not “posted” much recently (some of us have jobs…) and I was idly leafing throught the new postings….and wonder above wonder, there is joseph, mentioning my name!
I think he is alluding to a remark made some time ago when I said (a bit facetiously) that I am ‘all of the above”. Actually, I am a mongrel, part galicianer, part hungarian, a pinch of yekkers and a dose of sefardim !January 13, 2009 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #631925
curious: i officially red the esteemed Rosh Yeshiva to Curious. and d’you know why? because of your persistence “behind every great man…”
all males please refrain from commenting regarding feminism
RY- are you maskim?
brook- i’ll tell u what. you reveal your age and origin and i’ll red you the “best boy in lakewood”
surfer- change your screen name to something very masculin and come back to me then. I’ll have a line up for you
MOD72: I DELETED 4 LINES ON THIS ONE- PROUD?January 13, 2009 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #631926
rabbi- you’re my kinda guyJanuary 13, 2009 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm #631927
there is no best boy in lakewood. you learn that with time. but i’ll take the second best! (maybe he’ll be for real!)
plus, i’d rather the best guy in the mir. why would i live in lakewood if yerushalayim’s an option???January 13, 2009 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #631928
Brooklyn: mazal meant that there’s many types of sepharadim. And I totally thought u were ashkenaz!! Suprisingly not!!
Joseph I think is 100% ashkenaz!!
al2: I doubt ur the only ashkenaz one here, I thought EVERYONE except me was ashkenaz on the cf lol!
Wow ur all mixed! I don’t have one ounce of ashkenaz blood lol is that suprising??January 13, 2009 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #631929AnonymousInactive
