Who I am
Well, what can I say? I'm Isaac Kaufman, I am half Sephardi and half Ashkenazi with some Mizrahi heritage and I come from Israel. I speak mame-loshn natively, and I can say that I am a native speaker of English and (Odessa dialect of) Russian. I like learning languages, well, I'm a true language geek. Currently I have textbooks on Ge'ez, Aramaic, Mongolian, Greek, Sanskrit, Hindi, Tamil, Coptic, Tatar, Latin, Armenian and Tajik. Of these, I currently learn Mongolian, Tajik and Greek. I'm Christian though I'm a Jew. I have a stupid younger brother Moyshe.

Fun facts about me

- Anytime I learned Hebrew, I forgot it in a day or two. Even in school. Ze sof.
I was born on 7th of July, 1990 in the "poor district" of Haifa, Israel. There I grew up, learned languages from my family and learned a lot of Russian profane words. In 1997, my family decided to go to Jerusalem. There I lived in the Old Quarter (or how you call that) and studied in Berlitz, then in the Hebrew University. After Hebrew University I began to use English as an everyday language, because my Hebrew was terrible. In 2009 my parents went to Ukraine. I worked as a kathovo in the Syriac Orthodox Church. Then, in 2013, I went to Ukraine. Nowadays I work in the Slavic Orthodox Church in Zaporozhye.
