dopevangogh: I just found out Noni means “Grandmother” in Yiddish. None of us knew and my sister is even more surprised than me. I think it’s freakin cool. I have never heard this before and it’s not in my yiddish dictionary. Google tells me it’s Sicilian…

saltdragon: I wonder if FYJH has anything to contribute on the Haskalah? Considering his is the only Jewish history tumblr and everything. Why would he post about anything besides the shoah
I hate call out culture, but i need to say this because it’s very simple: white jews in north america don’t oppress qua jews, but as white people. in the same sense, PoC aren’t antisemites because they’re black or brown but because they’re gentiles.
saltyseababies: lol i have no time for north american jews who were raised with the luxuries of calling themselves white, and thus think this concept applies universally Forget universally. Have i mentioned the KKK marched outside my hebrew school? Yeah. Tell me about how yr white, fellow US ashkies.
ardora: The clock in the schoolyard wore an injured look because of my offence. It read “tardy.” And in the hall, through the classroom doors I brushed by, murmurs of secret deliberations reached my ears. Teachers and students were friends, behind those doors. Or else all was quite still, as though someone were expected. Quietly, I took hold of the door handle. Sunshine flooded the spot where I...

saltyseababies: kuklarusskaya: kanthia: The place of Jews within the broad spectrum of races and ethnicities seems to be a common area of confusion, so allow me to edify: According to modern conservative Judaism, Jews constitute a nation/kingdom, a religion, and a race all at once. More liberal or reform-minded Jews take offence to the… The biggest issue I have with this is, “I’m sick of...

Anonymous asked: Do you support right of return for the Palestinians whose families were ethnically-cleansed by Zionists during the Nakba?
saltdragon: Fuckyeahjewishhistory irritates me. This recent nonsense about the usefulness of the word “antisemitism”, and the slightly less recent labeling of post-Shoah revenge plots “genocidal” really encapsulate the issue. They play into the goyische narrative of “good” Jews and “bad” Jews, and judging by the contents of his like folder, which is filled with readyokaygo, he has bought into...

Anonymous asked: Confession time: I love Manischewitz Matzo Balls. Except I don't actually prepare the balls and drop them into hot chicken soup. Oh no. I pour the dry seasoned matzo meal into a bowl, add the eggs and vegetable oil as directed, refrigerate it to make the dough nice and firm... and then, I take out the bowl, get a spoon, and eat the whole damn thing. Like raw, savory, salty cookie dough. I...
Anonymous asked: What about converts that are patrilineal Jews but converted just to be accepted? Are you wary of them too or do you not really consider them converts? What about children of a convert and an ethnic Jew are you wary of them too?
