Question
How and when did different ethnicitys start? Was it from noah and his sons?
Answer
Shalom, According to the Torah narrative, one could say that the sons of Noah were the beginning of different “ethnic” characters. One could also look at the narrative of the tower of Babel as the beginning of different language groupings in the world, that are also connected to ethnicity. Blessings
