    There’s “all of the above”, and then there is Joseph. So full of himself, there is no room for anything else.

    Who say’s you can’t be all the above? My father is from the Mideast whose forefathers were from spain(Sephardi) My mother’s parents were from Hungary and Poland(Ashkenaz & Chassidish. (My mother was born in Germany after the war and lived in Israel for a time and then came to the States) I have the best of everything.

    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?

    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 :}

    oh do i? only sometimes. and ask syriansephardi – there are a million sects within the sfardi group.

    #631912

    Joseph

    okay, so which of the million do you belong to? (now don’t go denying the truth again…)

    I wouldn’t say a million sects in the syrian sephardi, Turkish, Moroccan, Lebanese, Persian, Egyptian and Syrian From Aleppo and Syrian from Damascus.

    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, bored@work and beacon are… American?

    areivim – that must have been a very tough guess. Americna is not an exclusive description.

    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.

    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… :}

    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 !

    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”

    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???

    #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??
