The Myth: All Sephardic Men Beat Their Wives

By Shelomo Alfassa / August 28, 2008

There is a rampant belief, especially among young religious female Ashkenazim that Sephardic men, beat their wives. This is a topic that comes up frequently among Ashkenazi women at various singles events, dating circles and throughout the Jewish social world. This is a real and serious problem. Sadly, the perpetuation of this stereotype is also being continued by shadhanim (matchmakers), who are responsible for a large number of Jews meeting, yet they may be responsible for Jews not meeting--specifically Ashkenazi women and Sephardi men.

In this paper, I aim to foster discussion on an all too serious subject
