An Ignorant Ashkenazic guy makes fun of Sephardim

213 comments

And you think Obama is part of Al Quieda?

I have gotten many complaints over the years about my lack of posts dedicated to making fun of sephardim. My response is always the same, first of all I am white, second of all I have no chest hair, my name isn’t Dudu and I don’t pronounced my “CH” like I have a mothball stuck in my throat while hocking a loogie. I also grew up in a predominantly asheknzaic area and my exposure to sephardim was limited to a few key events such as eating at pizza stores in New York which are run by a racket of price fixing sephardic guys who speak in Hebrew and Russian with a English-Spanish Hybrid which they use to boss their illegal immigrant pizza makers around and to repeatedly ask the same person in line if they are being served by saying “whatdoyouwant” really fast in Spanglish.

I remember hearing about the brown Jews who wore white talesim and smelled bad from other people. I remember hearing about this elusive group of Jews that were all orthodox even though the women dressed in extremely tight vein constricting jeans and the men never wore yarmulkes outside of shul.

As I grew older I became more exposed to this clan of Jews, my shul on the upper west side was strapped for cash so they rented out the weekday shul to a bunch of Yemenites who used to sound like a bunch of dying Muslim cows on their way to slaughter when they lained, they would also lain uncelus which I had always thought was Rashi’s uncle Louis. Turns out that the head of that congregation struck it rich when he decided to open up an authentic hold in the wall falafel joint on the upper west side which wreaked of Sephardim – not in a smelly way, just in the way that any place open till 4 in the morning patronized by after hours singles and grimy looking unshaven brown folks who seemed to be born in a falafel joint with a cigarette hanging from their lips.

Then I went to high school and it all changed, I finally got to live in close proximity to authentic Sephardim, the Sephardim on the upper west side are kind of like the token black guy in movies or the Asian guy in Starbucks ads, they are classic out of place Sephardim that find the one guy that speaks Hebrew or Arabic in shul and sits with his arm around him talking really loudly about other people on the last bench (I always think Sephardim are talking bad about Ashkenazim when they meet each other in an ashkenazic shul)

As I was saying high school put me in touch with real Sephardim, or as reall as you could be in a yeshiva environment far removed from the works of the Ben Ish Chai and the Baba Sali. We had several Bucharians, Syrians and Moroccans who wore those white talesim and were mistaken to be Spaniards by the locals. I remember several things about this group of tough outcasts, they all wore wife beaters, loved beating each other up and listened to the worst Israeli techno you could find, they were also the only 14 year old boys I knew that could grow a full beard in 3 days.

As I grew older I learned more and more about Sephardim, I learnt that the women are smoking hot but the men are all fat, bald and short by the age of 50. I learned that there is such a thing as a white Sephardic person such as fellow blogger Jacob Da Jew, I also found out that besides for the pizza and falafel business Sephardim were involved in diamonds, car services and handymen businesses. I also found out that every out of town place has to have the token Sephardic home improvement maven, whos wife teaches Hebrew at the local day school.

I have dated some Sephardic girls and they all introduced to me to hairy women – just joking – they introduced me to kibbe, meat pies and my hatred for cilantro (I know its cusk but I cant stand it) I also found out the Sephardic women are tough cookies, I like them for that reason and that they like nice cars.

Later on in my Sephardic education which was never really any good judging from the pathetic ignorance of this post I discovered that Sephardim were like ashkenzaim, I always used to think that once you pronounced “Chachum” like Hachum you were part of some secret club that drank Arak and longed for the old days before the Shah, but then I found out that there was strife, similar to that of the Ashkenazim accept it wasn’t based on the color of yarmulke you were and whether or not you had a white tablecloth on shabbos or Shabbat, it was more cultural like the Syrians or SY’s as they are called didn’t like the Iranians or the Bucharians had beef with the Iraqi’s – not really sure what the inner fighting’s are I just know they exist. Maybe it has to do with the pizza price fixing racket.

The first Sephardic wedding I attended was in Detroit and I was disappointed because my friend a very brown Egyptian married a very white Ashkenazi girl without any facial hair, the only thing Sephardic about the wedding was when I asked the father what he felt about the interracial couple he responded that his daughter needed a good beating every month or so – wow there’s a real stereotype, do Sephardic men really beat their wives? Or is that just an Ashkenazi libel made to make us feel better? Oh and why on earth do Ashkenazi Jews hold of the Shulchan Aruch if he was Sephardic?

As you can see I am a very ignorant unknowing Ashkenazi Jew who knows absolutely nothing about the Sephardic community. In fact I bet you many people feel exactly like I do, I kind of wish I knew more so I could write about it. One trip to Forest Hills or Pico Robertson just isn’t good enough for really making fun of them.

Now for the kicker, if anyone could write something for me to post up here that can mnake fun of the Sephardim from and insiders perspective then I would love ya for it because I feel bad for the Sephardim who read my blog, a blog devoted to white Ashkenazim that never even mentions those weird brown dudes with the white talesim.

Sephardim also eat this cake-like food called Ka’ak which is pronounced like the slang for penis.

Stay tuned for sephardic facts, questions I have about sephardim and an interview of a real live sephardic Jew…

I would say its sephardic week but I always change my mind mid week.

    Phil,
    I can guarantee it’s not a lack of pride in our heritage in Morocco…
    • What country in the world has gone back and asked the Jewish community to return after the left peacefully?
    • What other country did the king recognize the bet din as a branch of the government giving them full authority under the crown?
    • In what countries do you have such a rich mix of music poems art etc (I know quite a bit but just for the list)
    • When the nonjews cause us trouble they normally come crawling back to beg for forgiveness
    It is not a lack of pride in our history.

    Example:
    As to the one or two… all it takes are a few people in positions of power to cause much trouble. Look at the trouble caused in Israel by a few people when the Sephardim came in…. yea sure you can work but before that you need permission from the government… and to get that you need to send your kids to these secular indoctrination centers… I mean schools. O no no we can’t support your own schools you need to be part of our schools… and while you’re at it get rid of everything that makes up your culture and become a secular leftist or European like us.

    Now I feel I must address Sami. I must say that such a post is neither funny productive or even interesting. Such a post makes me think that you are a nonjew that wishes to create a wedge between the two cultures (really there are more then that but you get the idea).

    Double M,

    Morocco wasn’t that great of a country in retrospect. It might have been better than Russia or Poland, but there is a reason the 300,000 Jews now only number a couple thousand. As for them apologizing / inviting the Jews back, they realized that once the Jews left, the were nothing but a bunch of bediouns left with no economy besides dates and tourism.

    As for the Israeli / zionist establishment, they attempted to destroy anything that wasn’t of their secular / communist mentality. From European Chassidim to Yemenites, all went through horrific circumstances which they never suspected or imagined would happen to them in a Jewish country. From people being forced to work on Shabbat, to men haven their beards an peyot vut off to kids being kidnapped and declared dead while the Perizites sent them off to kibbutzes that preached atheism, it’s little wonder people today equate zionism with nazism.

    What do you do when someone wants to marry a convert and your sephardic and sephardim dont accept them ?

    • David

      This is a myth. Individual families and rabbis may freak out, but overall, Sephardim do accept converts. The only group of Sephardim who don’t do conversions and threaten any sort of disenfranchisement for marrying one is the Syrians. And, while they certainly don’t do conversions themselves, they will accept any conversion performed by other orthodox batei dinim that were for the sake of heaven rather than marriage. I am a geir tzeddek who has spoken with Syrian rabbis and they assured me they regarded me as fully Jewish and that, were I not already married, they would not object to my marrying a Syrian maidl. One related that Rav Kassin, while he did not attend the marriage of a man from his community to a woman who converted with Ashkenazi rabbis, nonetheless sent the couple his well-wishes. The children were educated in Syrian schools and married within the Syrian community. The reason for their policy is to ensure members of the community do not marry safek geirim (according to tractate geirim from the seven minor tractates, which says “a convert who does not convert for the sake of heavens is not a convert.”) Other Sephardim do conversions. Indeed, Rav Uzziel took a liberal position on conversions compared to Ashkenazim, which has been followed by numerous turbaned rishonei letziyon in Israel. My beit din was overseen by a Turkish-Greek rav of the Rhodes tradition. The Syrian ban was never as absolute as many balei batim from their community think it is.

    Find an Ashkenaz rabbi.

  • Anonymous

    Most of the stereotypes everyone is saying are wrong about sefardi jews.
    by the way there are many different types of sefardi
    jews so it would already be hard to put one title on all of them. By reading these posts it seems most of you have no clue what they are about if you really got to understand and know them you would realize there is a lot to learn from them about what it really means to be jewish. The joke on top would be funny if they were atleast half true (russians are not Sefardi).

  • Mark

    Anon – there are many different types of sefardi jews

    This is a very good point! Different groups of Sefardim even make fun of other groups of Sefardim.

    Phil – Find an Ashkenaz rabbi.

    Or a reform rabbi, they’ll marry just about anyone.

    Anon,

    All you have to tell them is that Moshe Rabbeinu married a convert, his father in law was a priest that tried every avoda zara on the market.

    Yehoshua bin Nun married Rachav after she converted. In her prior life, she was the biggest ho in Canaan.

    David hamelech’s grandma and Rabbi Akivas dad were also converts.

    As long as this girl didn’t convert for an ulterior motive such as marriage, there is no reason to reject her, unless you are a Kohain.

    I understand that many people are all about the show, sy’s aren’t the only ones. Good luck.

    Phil, you know that none of this would sway Charedim whatsoever. They believe in oleh dorot, and they believe that they are definitely frummer than Moshe Rabbeinu, Yehoshua Bin Nun, and perhaps the avot and many other of their forefathers.

    BS”D

    Wow! The slander is in full swing on this blog. It’s actually a shame. Who needs the arabs with internal conflicts like this. For those of you who are carrying hate (whether sephardic or ashkenaz), you most definately are lost on what it means to be Jewish.

    First and foremost, this is not a competition to see who is more frum. This is not a competition to see who can outwit the other. Setting a good example for all Yiddin would bring many more back to practicing the ways of the Shulchan Aruch. Although some of the things I read are funny if they were actually meant in a joking context, a lot of this is madness, pure hate and jealousy.

    hmmm…let’s see…hate/anger = idol worshipping, jealousy = well, fast read the ten commandments about coveting. The 2nd Bet Hamigdash was destroyed for exactly this type of disunity….Disgusting, immature, and probably fueled by spoiled brats who never ventured fifty miles outside of their bubble of existence. These are people who know nothing about struggle or fighting foir their right to be Jewish.

    To set the record straight, I am 100% Moroccan and just as educated as any Askenazi. I am 6’2″, in shape and far from ugly. I also practice excellent hygine. Hashem even gave me some cool talents like being able to sing and play drums at the same time. I also play two other instruments and am on the board of directors at my shul. Last but not least, I am completely religious: (i.e. glatt kosher, shomer shabbat) and could not imagine walking around without my kippah and tzit tzit.

    These stereotypes are actually pretty inacurate since I grew up in Brooklyn among both groups. I attended the Askenazic Rabam Yeshiva in Crown Heights as well as a Sephardic Yeshiva on the other side of town. I’ve seen both sides in detail. Sorry to burst your bubble, but plenty of Ashkenazim are filthy, so check yourself! As a kid it was the late 1970’s early 1980’s and we had to fist fight goyim all the time just to keep our kippot on our heads and our sepherim in tact. None of these sterotypes hold true because they truly depend on the habits of the individual and their family, not their background.

    Not one female member of my family are sluts or conduct themselves in an improper manner (Where have you been hanging out at man? I question your purity 5000%). This also holds true for friends of the family and community (i.e. other Moroccans, Egyptians, Syrians and Yemenites) For those that do sport tight clothing and cling to gold and sportscars, I say may Hashem open their eyes.

    The Ashkenzim are not innocent either. There are plenty of them who engage in a plethera of unfavorable activities breaking every precept Hashem gave us to follow. Thus, don’t be so full of yourselves! At my shul I know plenty of people from both backgrounds who are caring, kind hearted people. Why can’t you be? Perhaps you need to grow up. Perhaps you look the part, but don’t act the part. Then you’re clearly a poseur and will pay for your actions, because Hashem is watching…you fools! When was the last time you really helped someone? when was the last time you fed a poor person? when was the last time you helped a Baal Teshuva with coming back to the religion? When was the last time you did something for Yiddin outside of your community. You’re only fooling yourself if you think you’ll gain life in the world to come with your jealousy, hatred and racism. You might as well convery to islam and join the fight against Yiddikeit.

    Brown Jews? Ha! I am light skinned and fully sephardic. Plus, why should that even matter?

    I would tell you to choke yourself with your girtle, but we do not believe in suicide.

    Get a life.

    So now your saying that if someone wants to convert just to be with someone who is jewish and wants to live the jewish life , like hes ok with it more than happy kinda thing because hess wants todo it to be with a jewish woman then thats not good enough ?

  • http://freshwater-phil.blogspot.com Phil

    Most REAL rabbis don’t accept converts that do it for marriage purposes.

  • Chaim

    I’m a white dude with a white tallit! WHITE POWER!

    But I do love all my brown sephardi friends & family, even if I did end up being the white sheep in the group.

    Nice job, though it wasn’t the funniest thing you’ve done, I was surprised at your breadth of knowledge for an outsider.

    PS: How do we know moshe rabinowitz was sephardic? B/c if he was ashkenazi he would have been moshe rabinowitz.

    And as for the satmar joke with moshe’s “flat hat” to fit into the aron hakodesh, that was a turban.

    And for those of you hating on sephardi food, I’m sorry but you can’t honestly believe gefilte fish or cholent are an adequate food source? I often wonder if its even food….

  • Chaim

    Wow all the sephardic hating is scary as I finish reading the posts.

    Its one thing to make fun of our food for comedy reasons, its another to just say mean things…

  • B.BarNavi

    Dude… it’s FUNNY. Lighten up, Sephardim. At my esnoga/bet-keneset/shul, we make fun of ourselves, each other (you have no idea how many “Persians are cheap” or “Moroccans with knives” jokes I have heard – and DON’T get me started on those SYs), AND J-dubs.

    As long as we have the Bet Yosef, the Rif, Rambam, the Ben Ish Hai, among many others hakhamim… as long as we have the superior food (unless you cound brisket)… as long as we have our open and non-judgmental brand of Judaism… there will be no shortage of pride for Sephardic Jewry. So please, for the sake of our image towards our less culinarily-savvy friends from Europe, stop being such insecure bastards. Hesh’s brand of satire targets the insecure, and you’re playing into his game.

  • Michael Schonberger

    How very, very hurtful! I am sephardic, I am Observant, You are bad mouthing my people and your People (I say your people because we are all from Yisrael Avinu)! Just because you do not understand our Culture does not give you the right to Be an asshole! I am frum you are not! In Sephardim culture it is plainly Sephardim, No Orthodox, Conservative, Liberal, But Sephardim Range from Orthodox To Liberal (I myself am Egaliterian so thus I go to a conservative shul but I use Orthodox Siddurim as the only liberal bone in my body is that I am egaliterian [and if one knew any better they would know that Miriam was the first cantor and D’vorah the first female Rabbi, that there is a Debate weather women need to say the B’racha before putting on Tzitzit and that Rashi’s daughters wore Teffilin], but for me that is not liberal but common sense)! You need to keep your mouth shut untill you leanr more about my Culture!

  • Shimon

    Very Funny, Like all generalizations some true some not. Here in the North Shore of LI most of the Sephardiam and Askenazim blend together to form a new entity yet to be named. Almost all of us would not survive without our persian or mideast cusine and they almost all eat our chulent and deli. One note I would make regarding the comment about Sephardim not being religous is testimony that they all remain together at the same shul. Our nonobservant assimilated yekke brethern are now either reform on the their way to being christian or just nothing.

I’m sephardic, and for those 4 years all that the ashkanazim would do was talk about us, leave us out of groups, and be nasty towards us. How jealous are you guy? Ashkanazim, get over your jealousy and act civilized. Its ugly. And for the record, sephardim are generous, and hospitable. And I agree with sephardi girl. We are prettier. Maybe we can get along if the ashkanazim wouldn’t be so damn mean and envious of our lives.

    I am a White Southerner who grew up around White Supremacy. I have rejected their ideology and am Atheist. I have a good many Sephardic and Ashkenazi friends.
    This is a good example of Jews who pass for white who are wannabe White Supremacists. He refers to himself as White, yet many Ashkenazi have nappy hair, Middle Eastern facial and physical similarities to Moslems, and even share DNA with Moslem Palestinians. He refers to Sephardis as BROWN, yet all Sephardi I know are White and pass for British and Northern European without marrying into them. When Anti-Semites kill Jews, they herd everyone altogether. Even Hitler referred to the Inquisition list of Spanish Jewsih names made available to him by the Vatican. While these self hating Jews denigrates other Jews , the sinister Anti-Semites laugh at him and plot their destruction. A direct quote I heard from this article from a Gentile was “see how they hate themselves, so why shouldn’t we hate them.

      Genetically Jews are pretty much Iraqis with a sprinkling of whatever population they were part of. Of course, Ashkis are 30-40% European.

  • hispanic sephardum

    I just want to say that I’m hispanic and I am here to defend sephardic jews because even though we hispanics are catholics for the most part, that just means that we are disguised catholics, our spanish ancestors were in essence sephardic jews who were forced to convert during spain’s inquisition, not only were they forced to convert but also imprisoned and brought by columbus to latin america, our sephardic jew ancestors in the americas lost their identity for the most part, but deep within the catholic belief many of our sephardic ancestors secretly blended many of their sephardic jew traditions, so its very common for a hispanic person to have many cultural similarities with a sephardic jew. So for the ashkeNAZI fools out there who degrade sephardis its because of JEALOUSY AND ENVY, if you fools have any historical knowledge about sephardic jews you would know that before the inquisition in spain, sephardic jews were known to be great writers, philosophers, poets, intellectuals and MUCH MORE, as far as I know ashkenazis have never made such great history for themselves as sephadis, as a matter of fact as far as I know you ashkenazis aren’t even original to judaism, you all have altered judaism from its originality and most of you aren’t even semites, so with that said I am very proud that (even though we hispanics are a very mixed culture in every way) sephardic jewish roots play a big part in our customs and genes.

  • Din

    Wow why all this hatred against Sephardic Jews? you must be bored and probably don’t have anything productive to do in your miserable existence. why not take a bath you disgusting pig because thats one of the things you ashkenazi ppl are know for: poor hygiene lol… Besides using the same clothes and smelling like something died, you are also know for your hideous looks: huge hooked noses, pale and plain as crackers, so bad to the point that not even plastic surgery will help. Ugliness in its PURE form lol. You poor miserable bastard, your disappointing looks and the awful smell of your body probably has frustrated you to the point of talking nonsense. Dedicating a whole post to your hate towards Sephardics??? how pathetic, it looks to me that obviously Sephardics are very important to you that you use space and time for them. Listen you pathetic little bitch, use the very last cells you have left in your brain to create something useful to society and if you can’t even do that jump off a cliff and do society a favor.

    Hey brother,

    seems to me like you are ( insultingly ) describing Mizrahim. Not Sephardim. We’re actually from Iberia & don’t have ANYTHING in common with the people you are ( perhaps in jest ) disparaging in this article. Yemeni, Iraqi, Egyptian & Irani people are completely different, on many levels …than those of us from Al Andaluz & Al Moroc.

    P.S… every time I’m in downtown Brooklyn, pushy Ashkenazim are always trying to get me to put on Tefelin with them. As in, they think I’m Ashkenazi.

    You should study before you say such provocative things, even if in jest.

    Use this great tool of literature & technology to bring love & understanding into the world, not confusion & offense :]

    Shalom!

    To be truthful, we Sephardim do sometimes talk poorly about Ashkenazim when we run into each other.

    Being Sephardi I have experienced racism from Ashkenazim but its definitely been the exception not the rule. I went to an Ashkenazi Yeshiva and I can only think of a few times were I had negative experiences with Ashkenazim there. Once a fellow student felt the need to loudly exclaim that the Sephardim were there Ni**ers of the Jews, which I did find offensive, but I just took that as a sign of his upbringing.

    I do hate some of the stereotypes that are associated with us like that we beat our wives, that we are trashy, and that we always wear sandals (well maybe that is true). I won’t lie that there aren’t stereotypes that I associate with Ashkenazim but I would never express them out loud.

    We’re all Jews and we need to sick together. Goyim already have such negative opinions of us so I think it’s really important that we have a more united front.

    I will simply refer the reader to Rabbi Shlomo Luria’s comments on whether or not the wearing of a kippa is hiuv or middot hassidut. The initiated will understand.

    @ Gail. I should not laugh,but that was brilliantly well played!
    On a more serious note. In the end we are all Jews!
    Ashkenazim,Yahadut Seferad, Mizrachim,Falashas.

    Doesn’t matter at the end of the day. We should all look out for each other,help lift each other up,and not tear each other down.

    Fact Ashkenazi jews are fake impostors that came from Europe. Most of them survived the holocaust which wiped out more Sephardic Mizrahi and Cochin jews who are directly descended from the Israelites. These half wit #ashkenazis are vile evil people and all of them should be thrown out of the middle east and sent back to their own native Europeans Countries. They have infiltrated many races and religions trying to forfill their racist ideologies. They a parasites who serve satan and have bastardized Judaism with their added versions. Do not trust them ever. Even the bible talked about these people that pretended to be jews. hitler said they were bastardized versions of jews. they make fun and vilify because they are jealous nasty creatures, you only have to listen to them and see how they live. Let them keep thinking they are the chosen ones lol they are chosen indeed but not for what they think! Long live the originals fuck a fake

      I totally agree with you. I am Sephardic My family came to USA from Tuscany Italy and moved to USA in 1947 escaping the holocaust. To see such a blog reminds me of what happened long ago prior to the Holocaust. But only is it really a fellow Jew who posted this page? OR? IT give me pause. What I have read here sinks of anti Semitism and not perpetrated by fellow Jewish brothers and sisters. To me this stinks of a way to slam Semites everywhere ! My parents said we will never forget! All of you act like you have forgotten or your not JEWISH AT ALL!

    Iv’e never heard such a lot of garbage in connexion with Sephardim/Mizrahi Jews in my entire life. 1) not all Sephardim/Mizrahim Jews are dark skinned. 2) many are very white. 3) Many Arab/Muslims/Christians are also very white, even in Saudi-Arabia and the Arab-Gulf States. Many Ashkennazim Jews also look eastern like Arabs, Unless of course they have intermarried with Gentiles, However only a very small percentage of Ashkenazi Jews look like Northern-Europeans. The overall majority of ashkenazi Jews still look Semitic.
