Hello my name is John..i wanted to share of the strong and powerful pull that my my family has experienced, toward the practice and witness of jewish life and religeous culture.. we now have several members who have formalized their belief and converted to the the jewish faith.. including orthodoxy.. some just practice on their own.. and others like myself very invoved socially with the ashkenazi community.. menorahs , shabbot candle holders, mogen davids everywhere, and of course traditional jewish music both sephardic and ashkenazi..some of the family members have taken biblical hebrew lessons..for sure a connection.. we are in process of a DNA test from the jimenez side of the family.. granpa’s first name was ELIAS (ELiyahu) other past grandparents with names like RAFAEL and SOLOMON..we will soon know for sure..how surprise my grandmother SALOME will be if she finds out..most of my family lives in California and Arizona.. “SHALOM”
