Most people do not know that most of my family has Hebrew linage. I have more Israelite in me than anything else, although I do have Spanish, Irish, English, and Indian in me also. My family and I do believe in Jesus Christ, not Judaism. Whenever I tell someone about my Jewish descendants, they instantly assume I mean that I believe in Judaism, which annoys me to no end. So, I stopped sharing that information with people.
