African-American . . .and Orthodox Jewish?


The Yehuda's, an Orthodox Jewish African American couple from Riverdale, N.Y. stand on an empty street in Ashkelon, Israel, on July 30, 2014.

I didn't know that there were such people. I know that some African-Americans have converted to Judaism. I didn't realize that some had become Orthodox rather than Reform.

There are African Americans who have always been Jews and not by conversion. Chicago has a small population , so does New York.

Israel seems like a sanctuary for all types of people. Religions, sexual orientation, race. If I'm forced to live in the Middle East, I wouldn't pick anywhere else but Israel. And let's be honest, that's the case for everyone, including "Palestinians".

Maybe I do need to read more about Israel but you need to not jump to conclusions. First of all the topic is African-Americans If I'd wanted to post about Israel I'd have mentioned Israel.

Let me state that again . . this is not a thread about Israel

That said, I'm well-aware of the many thousands of Ethiopian Jews in Israel. I'm also well-aware that there are Arabs in the IDF. Though I didn't know they were Muslim.

Re: African-American . . .and Orthodox Jewish?

Hah I used to have a penpal who was an Arab of Christian confession and loyal Israeli citizen. Now that is something.

Actually she has pursued nice career at journalism (fashion branch if i recall correctly) so it's not like she was B class person there.

Would you give some more info. Or I guess I can just go search. It's interesting and I know nothing about it.

Re: African-American . . .and Orthodox Jewish?

Gosh, I've seen lots about them on television. I remember Oprah once had a NY family on her show. Meanwhile, I clearly remember this from back in 2008, because this is the area where some relatives live in Brooklyn.

Okay. I'm starting a thread for that.
