My friend is Ashkenazi. The neighborhood that I live in has an
*enormous* Ashkenazi Orthodox community and a small Chasidic portion
too. So, it stands to reason that (also being from England) my
friend was not familiar with the Sephardic henna traditions. Don't
get me wrong-- she wasn't condemning it at all, she just said she
didn't think that it was something that would be greeted
enthusiastically in her schul.
Thanks again for the information!
