    Arison is only Ashkenazi. He’s not “other”.

    Is there any evidence that Amir Arison is something other than Ashkenazi? I don’t see any indication of it within either of the links provided.

      Exactly he is fully Ashkenazi, I am part Ashkenazi myself and many of our people are dark because we are Levantine people from Eretz Y’Israel. Also he was accidently invited to a Sephardic award to deliver a speech and he had to clarify there that he is not sephardic but Ashkenazi , they probably invited him due to his dark complexion. Amir explained there that he is fully Ashkenazi , and that his father Ron Arison was of Romanian Jewish descend and his mother Zippora Kittman was Ukrainian Jewish and Polish Jewish and that her family were in the Shoah (Holocaust) . So basically Amir Arison is 100 % Ashkenazi . Amirs father is Romanian Jewish and his mother Ukrainian/Polish Jewish ,
