    Ethnically, you can't get rid of being Jewish.

    Technically speaking, I think your 'ethnic' location in Judaism is fairly easily muddled, e.g., "Really? He's Eastern European Jewish? I'd always understood he was Sephardic ... Who'd a thunk it?"

    To us gentiles, that's a curiosity. That you are Jewish, not so much ...

      Jewish ethnicity, that diary would be so long and convoluted it would make this one look like a pancake recipe!

      In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!

        I once got into a (cough) debate with an evangelical Christian who told me flat out that there is no such thing as a secular Jew... I tried to remain polite but I had to laugh at that one.
