    Yes, I'm aware that Judaism is a religion, but run with it.

    Jewish meaning Israeli?/Eastern-European Jew?, or meaning one of your parents follow the religion?

    Any one out there who is 12.5% Welsh, 6.25% Nigerian, 25% Muslim, 6.25% Canadian, 12.5% Greenlander/Artic Eskimo, 6.25% Egyptian, 12.5% Southern Baptist, 18.75% Southern Asian Indian with crosses of Thai, whose mother has what doctors call a Mexican/Latino birthmark?

    -I'm not even sure that makes sense...

    There is a sandwich shop at UCLA called Jose Bernstein's. My sister's friend asked him about the name. I believe she said the guy said he's half-Jewish half Puerto Rican.

    We will talk about the unique challenges we faced growing up half Jewish and half Puertorican. For example, why it's so difficult to get your Jewish friends to drink Malta.

    How about trying to get any non-puerto ricans to drink Malta? Soo good but such an acquired taste...

    I guess that since I drank it a lot growing up I did not realize it was an acquired taste until I offered a friend some in Junior High. He spat it out and told me it tasted like raisin soda.

    I dont think this can be possible...there has to be somekind of tenet against being only 25% muslim....isnt it an all or nothing kinda deal...and the Mex/lat birthmark can only be diagnosed on 18.75% NORTHERN Asian Indian...and by law in accordance to UN resolution 252, any trace of canadian ancestry below 100% is automatically removed and replaced by the other ethinic %...just like islam, being canadian is an all or nothing deal according to the world...you either with them or agaisnt them...:thumbup:...:laugh:

    Wow I know this thread is old, but I came up on it when I did a keyword search to see if being Puerto Rican and Jewish is a lead on discussing me as a unique person for secondary applications. And the malta thing had me cracking. I've been trying to convince my Israeli bf to try it and he just won't break.

    That's not too surprising since there was at one point a large Jewish population in Cuba.

    Oy vey...:eek:

    It's actually both a religion and a race, but the race divides between Ashkenazi Jews and Sephardi Jews. You can't be "half" Jewish either. It passes through your mother, so if she's Jewish, you're Jewish.

    LOL. Old thread.

    LOL @ jews being a race.

    Are people still holding onto that lost tribe, no one is like us, we are our own special kind, superiority complex crap?

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    That's like thinking that light-skinned people and dark-skinned people are a different race.

    Who's next? Blondes and brunettes? Gingers?

    It's no race but it's definitely an ethnicity.

    Hmm well im sure there are plenty. They can do dishes,laundry and mow lawns like a good latino, as well as finding me great discounts and doing my taxes like a good Jew. Which doctor would say no to having one of those around?

    There are genetic markers that are unique to Jewish people. If you do some research, you can find out more and see how the Jewish race is accepted by many scholars.

    I have a friend whose dad is a turkish jew, his mom is a cuban jew (both relatively dark skinned) and oddly enough him and his 2 sisters are white like they have a ashkenazi background as opposed to sephardic
