A Questionable Conversion

A Jewish immigrant arrives by ship to New York City from Europe. The immigration inspector at Ellis Island asks him his first and last name, age, and national origin. Because of all the suffering he went through in his native land, when inspector asks him what religion he belongs to, the Jew is very uncomfortable and hesitates before answering.

Finally he lifts his head, on top of which is his peasant hat and he responds with questionable pride, "I am Christian!"

To that, the immigration inspector answers him with a question, "Christian Ashkenazi or Christian Sephardi?"
