So, who are the Jews here at CHBRR?

I'm sure there are some Jews here.

I'm curious because my dear wife is a Jew and I myself once strongly considered converting to Judaism (even taking the class) before eventually deciding not to be part of an organized religion.

I am not "officially" a Jew despite my father being Jewish.
I'm a "Jew-talian".
My mother fled Mussolini, Dad fled Hitler, both met through one of Mom's high school/ESL friends, when they got married (1946) it was a scandal, almost like an interracial marriage was in the South in the 1950's.
The local bishop demanded that we kids be raised Catholic, but of course we still were exposed to a fair bit of Jewish traditions and customs anyway.

I was surprised to find out that there are now quite a few Jewtalians running around, but I suspect my folks were among the first!

A high percentage of my long-term close friends were Jews. Probably just a coincidence being together in the orchestra, chess club, or science honorary. When we move here, the kids were in daycare at the Jewish Community Center, that has recently been receiving those bomb threats that are all the rage lately.

So we are sort of Honorary Jews by association! The kids came home speaking in tongues or something like: Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam,
Hamotzi lechem min haaretz.

We had to have them deprogrammed.

Question: Is worse to be antisemitic, or to feign and encourage antisemitism to gather votes? I think the later is even more noxious!
