    I was wrong. Noam Bramson appears to be 100% Ashkenazi Jewish. His paternal grandparents are indeed as stated above. His maternal grandparents were Jona Rozen and Rachel (Ruhl). Jona was the son of Yehoshua Rosen and Chaia Mindl. Please add to profile. thanks

    Shouldn’t Noam Bramson be tagged as Israeli and Israeli Jewish?

    I believe he isn’t 100% Ashkenazi Jewish. I thought he had some Polish non-Jewish ancestry.

            I looked deeper into his ancestry you were right @Follers, Noam Bramson was mistaken no ethnic Polish ancestry. Bramson’s father I believe was Morris Bramson (1930-1995), the son of Rafael Bramson (1906-1985) and Jospa Piekarz (1897-1994). Rafael was the son of Ruchel and Avraham Bramson. All of them were Polish Jewish. It appears Noam Bramson’s mothers maiden name was Rozen and she was the daughter of Rachel and Jona Rozen, who were also Polish Jews.
