Talking Jewish Racers

My name is Yohan. I'm a Hassidic Jew currently living in South Florida. I have met a few other Jewish racers, but not enough for a minyan. Looking to hear from fellow Tribesmen and racing experience, views, etc.

t to get completely off topic I did think it was funny how stupid hulk hogan and his family were when it came to the neighbors that he moved next to in south florida. most of his neighborhood were jewish and he didn't have even the smallest clue about it. it's a shame the misconceptions that are spread by the unknowledgeable. that being said does any of the jewish laws effect your racing. where you buy stuff? has a race been held on a day you couldn't run due to religious obligations? just wondering

I thought its the schlmozzels that are to be avoided. Schlemiels are the ones that get hit or send themselves to the walls. Schlmozzels are the ones who will hit you or send you to the wall. Maybe I have it backwards. Some correct me please.

Ummm the OP said he was Hassidic. They observe shabbat, which means he won't race anytime between sundown on Friday until sundown Saturday.

"Shabbas is the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don't work, I don't get in a car, I don't pick up the phone, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as sh*t don't f**king roll!"

Is there a glossary to refer to when you use your Jewish phrases? Amusing just trying to figure out what you are talking about

Here's some of the phrases:

Wow, I didn't know that some words we use almost day to day are Yiddish origin.

BTW...a minyan might be tough, but you never know. LOL
