its probably cuz they were raised in both cultures. there are jews in italy, but they're a pretty small community. so they probably have one parent whos italian and one whos jewish.Originally posted by Mike Richards
...and why when I ask people what their back grounds do they tell me stupid things like "part Italian- part Jewish"?
Jewish is not a nationality.
"yeah I'm part Canadian-part Catholic"
both of those (italian and jewish) are CULTURES that extend beyond their religions.
