G'mar Tov, Sarah (Yes, she was born Jewish)

We all know that Sarah Palin is a Christian and not a practicing Jew. However, what you probably didn't know is thas her mother, Sally Sheigam, is 100% Jewish by birth, was raised as a Jew, that both Sarah's maternal grandparents were 100% Lithuanian Jews, and that as a result Sarah Palin was born a 100% Jew.

Not only that, but Sarah's father, Chuck Heath, also had a Jewish mother, Beatrice Coleman.

Now we know why she was named Sarah.

This doesn't mean she is Jewish today, of course, but it does mean that if she were to renounce her Christian faith and wish to return to Judaism she could do so without needing conversion. Same with her children.

Tonight is Kol Nidre, the evening beginning Yom Kippur, and all who are or have been Jews are welcome to be gathered in, even the ex-communicated heretics and those who have converted out, on this one night to stand side by side with practicing Jews on the day of attonement.

Sarah, I hope to see you at Shul tonight.



  1. awesome possum!

    although i don't believe for a moment she's less of a jew because she's christian - madze, jews do not lose their jewishness when they become christians. they are just no longer bound by the law - free you might say - saved and payed for with a price.

    go ahead and get mad at me if you'd.

    may your name be found written in the book.

  2. Hurray! Sarah Sheigam-Palin for president... of Israel...

  3. Nanc, if only the Torah agreed with you.

    You shall not add or detract from the Law. It is eternal.

    Delude yourself into thinking whatever you'd like.

    And BTW, a Christian becomes no less Christian by becoming Muslim- they just don't have to deal with that jeezus bubbemeises.

    Chag sameach ;)

  4. I like all points made here. Nanc is-as usual-deluded. Gert is right on the money (as usual) and B.K. is putting the Messianic bull in it's rightful place. Good work, guys!

  5. GROSS!

    Anyone born to a Jewish mother or has a valid conversion is a Jew. A Jew is bound by the law NO MATTER WHAT--whether they believe it or not.

  6. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but that story about Palin's ancestry was revealed to be a hoax nearly 2 years ago. Her mother's maiden name was Sheeran and she came from a long line of Irish Catholics. This was confirmed by many valid sources, including the study done by on all 4 of the presidential/vice presidential candidates in 2008.

    Honestly, my guess is that the hoax was propagated by one of those online coalitions of white supremacists who try to discredit the political establishment by making outlandish claims of zionist ties and conspiracies.
