If everyone talks funny except Galicia then, let me guess, you're from Galicia?
do you have any stereotypes of american, ( todays ) european or israeli jews ( from different parts of the country )?
Among Israelis the stereotypes are more or less like this:
(By the way, when we refer to Moroccans, Russians etc. we mean Jews from Morocco, Russia etc. We don't bother saying "Jews" because that's understood without saying):Morrocans
: hot tempered, very concerned about their honor and get into fightsYemenites
: Good natured, street smart, but lower in social statusPersians
(Jews from Iran are called Parsis): Rich, tight with moneyRomanians
: (this refers to Jews who came in the 1930s): Bourgeois values, over-protective parents. An over-protective Israeli mother is called an "Ima Polaniah" (Polish Mother). To sepharadi Jews, Polish Jews are considered a bit uppity.Russians:
Every Russian street cleaner here claims he was an engineer or a chess prodigy back in Russia. They keep to themselves and don't bother integrating. Tough guys. The girls dress like sluts but they are very educated.Gruzinim
(from Georgia): ViolentKurds
: Simple, stubborn, not too brightSyrians
(mostly from Aleppo): Marry among themselves, rich, snobbish about their culture and history, women dress well.Americans
: Smart-ass, speak bad Hebrew, naive, richIraqis:
Business people and bankers, but live modestly, known for wearing pajamas all day around the house.Ethiopians:
Quiet, good natured, bottom of the social ladder.Regional Stereotypes:Tel Avivis
think that the world is Tel Aviv and know nothing about the country around them. Very western in lifestyle, leftist politically, vote Labor, anti-religious (this is a gross overstatement since there are all kinds of people in Tel Aviv that don't fit that description at all).Jerusalemites:
Insular people who never leave the city and get lost when they visit Tel Aviv. Jerusalemites don't know how to swim (no beach). They go to sleep early.Tiberias
(Tverianim): Low class, but good sense of humor, have strange local expressions.Sderot:
Simple, low class, honest people, salt of the earthKibbutzniks:
They think they're big shots just because their grandparents were big shots.Moshavniks
(small farming villagers): Thought of as selfish kulaks by the kibbutzbiks
I think I've insulted enough people for one post. Of course none of these stereotypes are true.
