Re: New Look at the Question of Sephardic and Ashkenazic Genetics #dna #sephardic


I was not asking about your criteria; I was asking a more basic question about what you mean by the word "Sephardic." The word has a strict meaning of "Jews of medieval Iberia (=Sepharad) and their descendants," but it is also widely used to mean "Jews of Muslim countries and their descendants," which includes Sepharadim in the strict sense but also Jews of North Africa, the Near East, and Central Asia. Are you using the word in the strict sense or the broad sense?
