… Would Reb Doniel Trump be a Litvak, Chosid or a Sephardi?December 24, 2017 9:08 am at 9:08 am #1434314CSParticipant
That would miss the whole point and that’s why he isn’t gonna convert.December 24, 2017 9:13 am at 9:13 am #1434312mentsch1Participant
I think he would look great in a streimel!December 24, 2017 9:18 am at 9:18 am #1434324
I hear that he’s in touch with the Chabad shliach in DC…December 24, 2017 11:57 am at 11:57 am #1434338yehudayonaParticipant
Trump speculated that the reason the IRS audits him every year is because he’s a “strong Christian.”December 24, 2017 11:57 am at 11:57 am #1434339WinnieThePoohParticipant

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?December 25, 2017 8:20 am at 8:20 am #1435726hujuParticipant
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..December 25, 2017 8:24 am at 8:24 am #1435732☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Is being a jerk something for which a person can’t do teshuvah?December 25, 2017 8:41 am at 8:41 am #1435734
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.December 25, 2017 9:37 am at 9:37 am #1435738Takes2-2tangoParticipant
This is the most infantile conversation ive read here in the coffee roomDecember 25, 2017 9:53 am at 9:53 am #1435761yytzParticipant
I’ve got it–he would be a Kahanist! 🙂December 25, 2017 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #1436378Neville ChaimBerlinParticipant
“Is being a jerk something for which a person can’t do teshuvah?”
Actually, the mikveh only clears the ger on sins between him and Hashem. So, you could make the argument in this context…December 25, 2017 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #1436425
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?December 25, 2017 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #1436436👑RebYidd23Participant
If he were megayer, would he still insist on saying “Merry Christmas”?December 25, 2017 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #1436440
No. He would then switch to Freiliche Chanukah.December 25, 2017 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #1436446Put down the gunParticipant
He’s definitely a secret chossid of Breslev.December 26, 2017 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1437101Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant

Apparently, you’re not a very frequent reader of the cr. I’m sure I could come up with many that beat this…..December 27, 2017 12:13 am at 12:13 am #1437177yehudayonaParticipant
I wouldn’t use the word infantile. I’d call it plain stupid.
