Being a Jew to me means being a part of something greater. I’m tired of people questioning my jewishness, or the way I fit into judaism. I am a Jew.  I think if people have a problem with my jewishness its between them and G*d.

Cette “fille du soleil" comme la décrit la journaliste de Marie-Claire, n’a que 20 ans et pourtant, elle semble avoir toujours illuminé de sa beauté. Pour mieux la connaître, il faut remonter du côté de l’Egypte d’où vient sa mère, Piera, “une vraie mamma juive”, dit Nora. Son père, lui, est un Autrichien catholique mesuré, mais ausi “anti-macho baba cool”. Les amoureux se rencontrent à Bali, alors que la mère de Nora est venue se remarier avec son premier mari ! Ce couple plein de sagesse ensoleillée donne naissance à Nora puis à Léa, “la soeur aimée, si aimée que les deux filles se sont fait tatouer leur prénom respectif sur l’avant-bras.”


Nora Arnezeder se met à nu, aux sens propre et figuré, et parle de ses drôles d’envies! (purepeople.com)






La jeune femme s’est ainsi exprimée sur de nombreux sujets. Concernant la fameuse « affaire Galliano », elle explique : « C’est honteux, je ne trouve pas d’autre mot. Je ne sais si c’est le succès qui rend fou ou s’il avait trop bu ou s’il est profondément raciste. Je suis juive et cela me concerne particulièrement »



» Nora Arnezeder, mince sauf dans sa tête De l’actu, du people et de la mode au menu…





(I can’t find any English articles discussing her Jewishness, sorry! But what the text above amounts to is stating that her mother is an Egyptian Jew, and that as a Jew she was very concerned about John Galliano’s anti-Semitic comments.)

My name is Clare, I’m nineteen years old and I am a Jew on my father’s side. I grew up in a small midwest town where there were no other Jews, and I often felt alienated and very much labelled. People would say, “No offense, but you really look Jewish.” This is pretty ridiculous. My sister has blue eyes and light brown hair. Is she less a Jew? Of course not! I love the idea behind this blog and I think it is so important to understand that Jewish identity is very important, but it is unique to every individual Jew in the world.

I’m Simcha, I’m 18, and I’m a Chabad-Lubavitch Bachur. I’m planning on getting Semichah (Rabinically Ordained), but I’m just like all of you. I watch some TV, I follow some Sports, but that’s all secondary to who I am. I’m a Jew, I love all Jews, and I respect all others.
