Yiddish insult. THE most potent and offensive insult known to man. it has so much connotation that cannot be truly defined that the closest you can come to its meaning is "horrible person". no other definition has the meaning, and there is no way to convey how powerful that word is. Use with caution.
Hitler was a prime example of a paskudnyak. You'd be hard pressed to come up with others.

a nonexistent ability that people claim to have. such people believe they can "sense" a Jew. obviously this is impossible unless the Jew has the distinctive hairstyle of the Orthodox sect or is wearing a yarmulke, since Jews aren't another race and look just like everyone else.

A holiday celebrated by Jews. notably Passover (Pesah), Hanukkah, Purim, Yom Kippur, and Rosh Hashanah. all but two can be broken down to "There were bad guys, we beat em, lets eat!" ;)
There's always more than you can eat at our Passover seder.

As has already been said, this holiday is completely fictitious. there is no such thing, because Jewish/Christians, like Messianic Jews, really don't exist, and for a much simpler reason than heritage: you either beleive in Christ, or you don't. sorta hard to halfway that one.
If you believe Jesus is your savior, you are not half-Jewish, you are all-Christian. maybe non-denominational, but still CHristian. also, having a Jewish relative other than your mother does not make you Jewish.
