Not to be fooled by the “klein” name.
This one appears NOT Jewish.
From the news:
Trump appointee arrested in connection with Capitol riots: Politico report — Klein, 42, of Annandale, VA, is believed to be the first Trump appointee facing charges related to the Capitol insurrection. ..
Info gathered online
Federico German Klein (42), Annandale, VA….relatives include Carolina Klein, Christian Klein…March 5, 2021 12:04 pm at 12:04 pm #1954336
Many Jewish surnames are shared with German surnames.March 5, 2021 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #1954352
Yes. Ujm. I just wanted to make clear about that Klein…March 5, 2021 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #1954353
Soeaking of surnames…
BTW, the opposite name in meaning of Klein, is surname Gross. Just as surnames Weiss/Schwartz.
They say, the Bardichever (‘מליץ יושר, בעל ה’קדושת לוי ) when the official came to hom, asking him for a surname to be established, he was בדבקות repeating דערבארימדיקער ‘the Compassionate’ towards Hashem. And the official wrote it down as a surname …That is the origin of this particular last name.March 5, 2021 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #1954355akupermaParticipant
and since most non-frum Jews intermarry as often as not, and have been doing so for about 200 years (depending on when their ancestor was OTD), if a non-frum “Jew” has a Jewish surname, it is reasonable to suspect that the person has non-Jewish ancestry on the maternal lineMarch 5, 2021 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #1954392
Barry Goldwater and John Kerry (through grandfather) …had only paternal Jewish links…March 6, 2021 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1954540ParticipantParticipant
@akuperma are you trolling? you do realize that paternal Jewish ancestry doesn’t raise or lower the odds of maternal Jewish ancestry?March 6, 2021 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1954567
And Madeleine Albright had two Jewish parents who brought up her up as a Christian.March 7, 2021 12:33 am at 12:33 am #1954591Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
>> @akuperma are you trolling?
He is, unfortunately, right in certain circumstances. In some corners of Jewish society, more than 50% of people are intermarried. Thus, having a non-Jewish last name increases a chance that the mother is Jewish (unless you are talking about several generations of intermarriage).
I presume this joke was posted here 4 years ago: what is the difference between Donald Trump and a Reform Jew? His grandchildren are Jewish.March 7, 2021 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #1954989ParticipantParticipant
what you said doesn’t bear any resemblance to what akuperma said.March 9, 2021 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #1955748
ujm if Albright’s mom is a yid, so is she. Regardless how she was brought up. ישראל אע”פ שחטא, ישראל הוא.March 10, 2021 12:10 am at 12:10 am #1955756
RT: Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger of Paris, who was a serious candidate to become Pope, was also Jewish.March 10, 2021 6:17 am at 6:17 am #1955815
…and Bruno Kreisky, Austria’s president.March 10, 2021 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #1956168
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is also halachically Jewish, but was raised as a Christian.March 10, 2021 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #1956169
“His grandchildren are Jewish.”
Joe Biden has Jewish grandkids, too. All three of his children who lived to adulthood married Jews.March 10, 2021 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #1956170
Bruno Kreisky was Austria, not President of Austria. Chancellor is a much more powerful position. First sociailst Chancellor post WW2. And a bitter enemy of the State of Israel. We don’t need Jews like him in power.March 10, 2021 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #1956171
Sen Dianne Feinstein may or may not be halachically Jewish. Her mother, who had some Jewish ancestry but practiced Christianity, sent Dianne to Catholic schools!
Having to figure out these things is whay I never want to be a rabbi.
