Tiffany Haddish is an American comedian, actress, and dancer.

Her father, Tsihaye Reda Haddish, was Eritrean, a country that was once part of Ethiopia; Tiffany has said that he was of Ethiopian Jewish descent. Her mother, Leola (Wright), is American (African-American), and of the Jehovah’s Witness religion.

Tiffany has been described as being an “African-American/Jewish girl from the ‘hood.” A popular line in biographies also states that she is “as sexy as Halle Berry, as funny as Jim Carrey, raw like Richard Pryor with the comedic timing of Lucille Ball, smooth like Eddie Murphy, Jewish as Whoopi Goldberg, and hopes to someday have money like Oprah.” [Whoopi Goldberg is not actually Jewish]

    one question

    she is ethipian jewish and im 1/4 ashkenazi jewish

    did we have ethnic things in common or just the religion

    • follers says:

      Ethiopian Jews are descended from ancient Hebrews who moved to Africa and married Africans, while Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Hebrews who moved to Europe. So if you have Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, yes, you’re related.

        i dont get it

        then she must have some ”WHITE” hebrew blood

        • follers says:

          Yes, she does. Ethiopian Jews have an interesting look.

          The Hebrews weren’t “white,” Caucasian most likely, but they wouldn’t be very similar looking to someone from Sweden. If you take the word of the bible as being accurate, Abraham was from Iraq. There’s several theories who the Hebrew people really were, lots ideas are that they were foreign to the area they eventually settled in, but they were most likely just a Canaanite tribe, and probably looked like their neighbors.

            and where us ashkenazi jews come from ?
            are we also hebrews ?

            im sorry but i cannot believe that THOSE BLACK jews have the same ancestors like me :-)

            Ashkenazi are basically Central-Eastern Europeans with variable “Semitic” influence. Ancient Hebrews probably looked nothing like modern Jews.

          • passingtime85 says:

            Ancient Hebrews, probably looked a lot like today’s Samaritans. They don’t like mixing and their rabbis/priests, the Kohanim family, have been the same for 2 millennia.
