You Learn Something New Every Day.

You know what I learned today?

My favorite Passover meal, peanut butter & jelly on matzah? Is totally *NOT* Kosher for Passover.

Harumph.

He and I have this conversation all the time.

He's a big, swarthy Italian, so by all rights he should be (IMO) Sephardic. But he was raised in the Ashkenazi tradition, so Ashkenazi rules apply.

Me? I'm Ashkenazi, but am all about the rice and beans. Not to mention the PB&J on matza. :)

Not all Italian Jews are Sephardic. Probably the majority are, but Venice has four Synagogues: Sephardic, Ashkenazi, Italian Rite, and Levantine rite.

Is he actually an Italian Jew, or just a Jew with Italian ancestry? I ask because if he's an Italian Jew, I'm probably a cousin. (There have never been more than about 50,000 Jews in Italy. I've actually met my 10th cousins.)

Jew with Italian ancestry. He converted when he was 10 (along with his mother and his sister).

Are they Kosher if you call them "garbanzos"?
