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 wasnt 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 SYs as they are called didnt like the Iranians or the Bucharians had beef with the Iraqis not really sure what the inner fightings are I just know they exist.
Maybe it has to do with the pizza price fixing racket.
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.
Yet I never heard people my own age make these differentiations.
I’m sure that somewhere out there, a Moroccan or Tunisian or Egyptian mother was making the very same boast.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.Jews of European descent used the term Sephardic to denote anyone who wasn’t like them: the non-Ashkenazi.The category may have been helpful for religious Jews, who followed either Ashkenazi or Sephardi customs in prayers and Jewish law, but it had no relevance among the secular.
