Group Description

This group is on the back burner. For now, go to groups.yahoo.com/group/Rumanian_minorities (Rumanian_minorities), groups.yahoo.com/group/Balkan-Jews (Balkan-Jews), groups.yahoo.com/group/Ru_minor/ (the humor)

OLD INTRO: We deal with minorities in the Balkan region generally, the Rumanian space* especially. As a Jew and member of a tiny sub-group of the Native Jewry of Romania (see Carol Iancu's definition among others), I may at times be subjective and push the discussion towards Jewish, Sefardi / Sephardi** and Romaniote** subjects. I will make a serious attempt to screen out platitude (it is OK to disagree and discuss issues, just keep your swearing and personal crusades to yourself). Upon request and whenever possible I will attempt to translate or at least summarize postings from English <-> Rumanian & very simple ones from Ladino into either Romanian or English.
Ne axam pe minoritatile din Balcani in genere si in special pe minoritatile din spatiul mioritic*. Ca evreu in genere si mai exact ca parte a unui subgrup minor al evreimii native romanesti (vedeti definitia lui Carol Iancu), s-ar putea ca uneori sa devin subiectiv si sa imping discutia spre subiecte evreiesti, in special spaniole / sefarde** si romaniote**. Voi incerca sa cenzurez vorbele goale si discutiile de umplutura (e OK sa nu fiti de acord cu cineva si sa discutati inteligent in contradictoriu, doar nu incepeti cu injuraturi si atacuri personale). La cerere voi incerca sa traduc (sau cel putin sa sumarizez) articolele/afisarile (?) engleza <-> romina si cele simple din ladino in romina sau engleza.
* Rumania, Moldova / Bessarabia, Bulgaria, Albania, former Yugoslavia, southern Ukraine, eastern Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Israel
** minhags that just about disappeared without a trace
