    ya, shes a Jewish ethiopian that’s trying to get accepted into a Lubavitch yeshiva. You should write a blog about it.

  2. Nachum

    California is full of non-Jewish Iranians. Don’t assume she is.

  3. shmary

    she actually was just accepted to the chabad drug program.

    Anybody know anything about her?

    She looks prettier than either Ahmedinajad or any of her friendly Southern California Shluchim of the Rebbe OBM

    Scroll down to the bottom of this link – perhaps a sister or cousin with the same last name and darn close looks?

    She also was in Crash, she was the Persian familys daughter.

  11. BTW, also in the first link N posted, Saba Sommekh is a Persian Jew.

    Who are the knuckleheads who think they are chochomim and they can outwit Shmarya because they read in wikipedia that Ms. Soomekh is Persian, and not Iranian?! Hello… “Persian” and “Iranian” are the same thing, as “Iran” is the modern name for the country that used to be named “Persia”, the national language of which is “Farsi”. However, “Persian”, “Iranian” and “Arab” are NOT the same thing. Although most of the onhabitants of Iran/Persia are Shitte Muslim, the day to day language is not Arabic. This is basic knowledge but a lot of people are ingnoramuses. Oh, and by the way, I know that “Somekh”, and “Soomek (sometimes spelled “Somech”) is a common name among Jews from eidot ha MizraH, so I would guess she is Jewish. And she’s hot. And, yes, she was in Crash. Which was a good movie.

    I think we can all agree that would be grounds for a Mossad covert action.
