    I doubt he was born Jewish. In that link it says: “Clare grew up in London with almost no Jewish connection, celebrating minimally until his teens.”

    • neiltennant says:

      Yes thats true

      he is not jewish by birth and of course not an ashkenazi

      Of course i know tons of Ashkenazi jews from poland or germany who look like him

      But he is a convert

      He is the prototype of ashkenazi jew because most of the Ashkenazi jews were europeans with pale skin who mixed with dark skinned hebrews

      For some reason I thought neiltennant made this comment, but now I noticed it was madman. Good thing you quoted “celebrating minimally” – did you happen to also grow up minimally celebrating Jewish holidays? Is this common?

        @follers

        whats your problem you idiot

        Alex clare is from north england and there are not so many jews there you idiot

        • follers says:

          He’s from London, not from the north of England.

          “I’m Jewish, and I loved the idea of the Jewish Sabbath, that was always something I really enjoyed and loved. And one week I just really needed to get out of the mentality and the group I was in… so I went to a very Orthodox family in the East part of London, and I ended up staying for a long time with this family, and it really changed my life.”

            YOU idiot

            that sentence dont make it clear if he was born jewish or not

            Jess Glynne for example was born into a jewish family

            last year a friend of mine told me also

            ,,Oh you are part jewish. Thats crazy i love jewish food and shabbat and maybe i will convert some day if i meet a jewish boyfriend”

            she meant it on a funny way but does it make her an ethnical jew for you ?
