The female Tuna Beigels: Tuna Feigel and Tuna Meidel

Please note that there is a difference between a Tuna Feigel & Tuna Meidel (Both female). Or more importantly female versions of the Tuna Beigel and Chassidish hockers.

Tuna Feigel: A tuna Feigel is a chic that was chassidish but wears pants or is not religious, basically not trying to fit in, like the girl version of the tuna beigel type that you find at Nussy’s Thursday night around 11 PM. You know, the guys that rip into the parking lot at 90 MPH and park in the fire lane even though there aren’t any other cars parked in the lot, the same guys that you don’t think they are Jewish until they start ordering in Yiddish….. Tuna feigels are called feigels bec wherever they go they guy you can always hear the their friends calling their name; like, “Feiggeeee!”. Even though they aren’t religious anymore.

Tuna Meidel: A tuna Meidel is more moderate. She is more subtle. She is the chic that is cooler than her chassidic friends. She wants to fit into the community but yet she goes clubbing with her/ur hubby or bf looking like a hot chani. I often associate them, like your hot chani description, with eating sushi, “Yoysh! I looove Sushi!!”. Not all Tuna Meidel(ech)’s have bf’s or hubby’s. The ones that are married usually live in Airmont…

    Someone once told me that the way to pick out a tuna beigel in a bar is to find the guy who, when he’s about to sit down, he flips up the tails of his leather jacket the way chasidim do with a bekishe (it’s much funnier when you act it out).

    C’mon Heshi, have you missed something? Back in the day, a tuna meidel was a reference to a nice girl, a pleasure to talk to, but in the end… The smell was reminiscent of tuna fish!

    Perfect name. You always hear that ‘feigy!’ and u turn around ‘wtf? ain’t no feigys around here.’ Then this girl in a leather mini skirt yells ‘what?’

      Reminds me of the MO girl who wears shorts and halter tops to pick up her kids at yeshiva, but her name is Esther Bryna. And she has a sheitel and one tznius dress that she keeps for family weddings.

    Feigel is wearing pants and otherwise openly breaking the rules but meidel is living a double life?

    I thought a Tuna Feigel was a gay Tune Beigel!

      Sorry to disappoint. In theory you’d be correct but your average beigel is already gay

    your must be talking Monsey here, In Brooklyn or Manhatt, it gets more extreme.

    The correct title for a female tuna beigel is “tuna baguette”

    • sephora April 19, 2012, 4:54 PM

    I’ve always wondered why female tuna beigels have a tendency to rename themselves, “Merry.” It’s as if they don’t realize that they are the only ones who use that made up name. As far as there concerned it is a super goyish disguise.
