By the way, since Jews in the Soviet Union, just like everyone else, were so thouroughly secularized and assimilated, you aren't very different from just about average person from the former Soviet Union. In fact, Brighton Beach looks like a street in a province in the Soviet Union.

It's ironic, that Brighton Beach residents may be more Soviet now than folks in Russia. Tell me, why do they dress like low-life "gopniks" in Russia would, in Adidas pants and leather jackets?

Uh. That's the stupidest thing I heard. We have a completely different culture, don't beat our wives, and etc :). As I said, just because I am not as religous as others are, doesn't mean my kids won't be. I am bringing up my kids Jewish.

Lame. Those are usually the russian relatives of the few Jews who marry ethnic russians.
