Waiting for someone to say “is she part Asian?”….

“she was raised Jewish and was Bat Mitzvah”

Isn’t the correct phrase “she IS bat-mitzvah”? I think it is – beside the ritual – a status of religious responsibilty that you usually don’t lose – as long as you don’t convert or become an atheist.

According to her Surname, there must have been one German Jew or more in her lineage … (Deut(s)ch = German)

correction; her eyes are forest green (green w brown), forest green in terms of eye colour refers to green eyes contain brown around the pupil (central heterochromia)
•Green – forest green. This is a muted, soft medium green that contains flecks of brown in the iris, they will tend to absorb light rather than reflect it and appear luminous

Obviously her Jewish ancestors particularly who lived in Germany once decided (2 unknown reason) to show off their ethnicity by differentiating themselves from Germans (Deutsch) therefore they removed just 1 letter and so they got Deutch)) a truly Jewish story!))

Me myself and I January 13, 2013 at 4:28 pm

German in German is Deutsch so I’m pretty sure she’s German not Eastern European :)

One more perle for my collection. It’s a reason, why
I still visit this site.
My dear “me myself and I”. You wouldn’t find a non-jew, who have a name like Deutsch or f.E.
