Do you know any Ladino? Are you Sephardic?
Golf. Quite possibly the greatest sport of all time. I mean, come on! What's better. Tennis? Meh...you can't play it until you're 100. Soccer? It IS the most popular, but then again, who said this was a popularity contest?
depends how you defind sephardic, i follow sephardic rites, and Aunism are usally grouped with sephardic as subgroup
as for ladino, i have a working knowladge of the language in both latin and rashi written form, but it isnt my native tounge however any hispanic sufficiently exposed to it can function it like second dialect
I read the other day that there is a movementnin the catholic church of people who want the pope to canonize Isabel the Catholic (Queen of Spain, conquest of Granada, columbus, 1492 etc)
and that the only reason she has not been canonized is because of her very important role in the expulsion of the jews in 1492 , which would offend jews, be controversial
How would you feel about it if it finally happened?
i find that hard to belive i mean the church in the past didnt care about being antisemitic when they encouraged progroms and burnt the talmud,etc yould figure she would have been canonized by now if it was going to happen
Given the fact that you're at most 1/8th Jewish, what (if anything) appeals you to Judaism/Jewry?
long story id rather not go into on here, but part of it was reading accounts of my family history including some not so nice events,remember i come from Founder colonial stock, the South American Equivalent of Pilgrims, lol i guess u can call them jewish pilgrims haha
yeah but once i tested positive for a drug test because of to much poppyseeds
I once got high on them, no kidding. The annoying part was that it took me a long time ( two weeks or so ) to realize what exactly was causing the constant dizziness.
i didnt go so far as to get high, but i was hoarding on those giant poppy hamentashen for a week after purim, and i had to take a drug test(company policy) luckily i explained and doctor understoon and gave a note so, yea
