    Nordid. He might have some other admixtures, such as Baltid. Very atypical for a Jew.

    Indeed, a type of Nordid.

    Isn't it strange that Jews from Slavic countries oftentimes look more Aryan than the Slavs themselves? Actually, it's not that surprising.

    Look at Kirk Douglas, Charles Grodin (looks Irish), and numerous other Jews with Russian origins and then look at an actual Slav like Brezhnev. The difference is astounding.

    Nordid. If I had to guess a type, most likely East Nordid, as those are common in northern Russia. For all I know, he might be a Slav who converted to Judaism - he's very, very atypical for a Jew, and certainly not the norm among Russian Jews.

    No, they don't. Jews often look distinctly Jewish with clear Levantine features (although there are exceptions), if you study them closely.

    Look at Kirk Douglas, Charles Grodin (looks Irish), and numerous other Jews with Russian origins and then look at an actual Slav like Brezhnev. The difference is astounding.
    Brazhnev looks like some kind of unusual mongrel, probably mixed with mongoloid. Not at all typical for a Moscow Russian, he resembles a Crimean Tatar or one of those mongoloid-admixed eastern Russians much more.
    (What the hell does "a Slav" look like, anyway? It's a cultural-linguistic group first and foremost; a Northwestern Slav, for instance, is racially closer to a Balt than he is to a Bulgarian).

    His biography here makes no mention of it, and the Christian names of his parents and grandparents are not Jewish in any way.

    ...but Wikipaedia rather amusingly does cite his Ethiopian Royal ancestry!
    The Ethiopian Royals were allegedly of Davidic lineage. Maybe that is the Jewish connection.

    Most Eastern European Jews look either Levatine or Armenid or a mixture of both. There are some exceptions but they are not the rule. There is a theory that many Jewish settlements were founded by men who took local women for wives. If they were wealthy merchants they took the better looking women, you see examples of this today in the US with the Wasp trophy wife for wealthy Jewish men. Even when wealthy Jewish men marry another Jew, it is a Jewish woman who does not look like the typical Levantine-Armenid Jew, though sometimes this is because of plastic surgery & cosmetics.

    The Jewish community in Eastern Europe was founded by Jews who fled Western Europe in the Middle Ages - England, France, Germany - this is why their native tongue, Yiddish, was a Germanic language. So non-Levatine admixture is just as likely to be from Germanic & Celtic sources as Slavic. There is also the Khazars, their genetic contribution is debatable.

    What sort of name is "Khalif"? It sounds like a Levantine-Arab name.
