    … Would Reb Doniel Trump be a Litvak, Chosid or a Sephardi?

    That would miss the whole point and that’s why he isn’t gonna convert.

    I think he would look great in a streimel!

    I hear that he’s in touch with the Chabad shliach in DC…

    Trump speculated that the reason the IRS audits him every year is because he’s a “strong Christian.”

    Two out the three have to do with point of origin, so those are not options.

    Any guesses on how many mezuzos the White House would require?

    Do you think that’s part of the reason he’s considering being megayer? It sure would save him a lot of headaches from the IRS.

    Sephardi has long ago become something other than describing a point of origin. Many Sephardim have no yichus to Spain. Litvak has also become to mean much more than shtamming from Lita. Many Litvaks, in fact, do not as shtam from Lita.

    Besides, what does any Ger become? Many become Ashkenazim (even though they’re not from Germany), others become Sephardim and others become Chasidim.

    Nu, what will Reb Doniel become?

    First of all, Trump could not do all the reading required to convert. And after converting, he would still be a jerk regardless of Litvak, Schmidtvak or sit-back..

    Is being a jerk something for which a person can’t do teshuvah?

    A Ger starts with an absolutely clean slate. He is considered, effectively, a newborn once he becomes a Yid. He starts out as a tzaddik.

    Actually, the mikveh only clears the ger on sins between him and Hashem. So, you could make the argument in this context…

    Neville, if a goy is megayer he is still chayiv for the ben adam lchaveiro issues he committed in all his years as a goy?

    If he were megayer, would he still insist on saying “Merry Christmas”?

    No. He would then switch to Freiliche Chanukah.

    Apparently, you’re not a very frequent reader of the cr. I’m sure I could come up with many that beat this…..

    I wouldn’t use the word infantile. I’d call it plain stupid.
