How Frum are YOU?

Back in the day, when I was dating and on some of the frummie dating sites for a month at a time, I had to categorize my level of frumkeit. So since, love it or leave it, I have always tended to be a bit of a "square peg in a round hole", I decided to consult with an expert. Enter my brother, aka the Rabbi who got smicha down Monsey way.

I mentioned that maybe I would go with Modern Yeshivish. Definitely modern, but the yekkish Virgo tendancies caused me to swing more to the Yeshivish side. His response: I refer to myself as Modern Orthodox, but machmir. :)

Anyway, I just took the Orthodoxy Test, which breaks down by percentages your scoring under the different subcategories. My score was overwhelmingly (79%!) in favour of Left Wing Yeshivish:

The Orthodoxy Test
says that I'm Left Wing Yeshivish

What does it mean?

So you're frum, but "with it." You know the lingo and walk the walk, but maybe you catch a movie on Motzei Shabbos. Never on Saturday Night though. Sometimes you wonder why all frum Jews can't be normal like you.

To which I must respond: DUH! But BB will be pleased nonetheless. :) My favourite question? "The Internet is". 'Cause if you're taking this test, LOL...
