I don’t understand why jews have problems with converted people. I mean, I don’t know why, but I think some jews believe that we are like funny pets or something like that.
The most interesting thing is that some people think that we have to obtain our giur with orthodox movement. I think is magnific that a lot of proselytes choose orthodox movement but, with respect, i’m not a jackass. I can understand that some jews prefer orthodox conversions because is “harder” (oh you!) or is more authentic but my parents gave me something called education and I have the capacity to discern what is right for me or not.
And because of that I decided to obtain my giur (if it’s possible) with masorti movement. I don’t know if you completely understood my last phrase and for that i’m gonna repeat it with other words: I prefer to continue being a gentile than obtain a giur with orthodox movement.
Why? because my dignity is more important than the opinion of a bunch of jews, simple as that. I’m not agree with orthodox people because i’m a liberal non-jewish woman (OH MY GOD I’M WORST THAT AMALEKH), the idea of being a jewish orthodox women isn’t atractive for me, and the idea of paying atention to the opinion of some people that think I have to reduce myself to please them is hilarious.
I know they would say THAT I DON’T DESERVE TO BE A PART OF JEWISH PEEPLEZ and I think is wonderful, as eating pork in yom kippur or being racist, but I don’t mind it, there’s jews that are ready to recognize reform and masorti conversions, is the best thing of jewish people, there’s a lot of opinions.
Sorry for not being servil, is because my purpose is to be free, not a jewish puppet.
PS: OH IBETH YU NO LIEK ORTHODOX JUDAISM, HERETIC, HERETIC, HERETIC!
A few moments ago, one of my facebook contacs told me that I should avoid to teach Hebrew (or help) to gentiles. Usually, I don’t have any problem whit people’s opinions but I’ve to say that his opinion is problematic and has no basis in the halakha.
The halakha says, literally, nothing about it. I was researching and I didn’t find anything that supports this opinion, anything but zohar (Is that clear?), and all of you know what is my opinion about the kabala…ok, I have to say that: Kabbalism stinks, is the worst thing I’ve ever seen, I can’t avoid it, I’m very bad for mysticism.
I’m so sorry for these jews (especially racist jews like our friend Yehuda Ribco) but I can’t support any racist view especially these that are supported in medieval books, I sympathize with these BAD AND HERETIC REFORMISTS and Jewish Rationalism :D
PD: I’m going to travel to Barranquilla, is a good opportunity to return to the synagogue (especially to study)
Did you know that the (modern) hebrew word for “atheist” is actually an anglicism?
I don’t know why, but I have to ask my rav about it, I mean, there’s a word for “atheist” in biblical hebrew? if it exists, why modern hebrew uses an anglicism?
Today we were reading the weekly torah portion and I asked my rav about the evidence of exodus. I have to confess that I like a lot the biblical archaeology and I’ve researched about this topic many times and I’ve noticed that, actually, there’s no evidence that supports the thesis of biblical literalism, we have no evidence to say that the story that appears in the book of exodus (shemot) is true or historically consistent.
My rav gave me an interesting answer, he admits it, but he doesn’t mind if the story of exodus is true or not, the torah isn’t a book of history, and I’m agree with he, the torah is a book that tries to teach us how to live, is not a science book.
It’s a valuable lesson (or moral) to religious people.
I love my rav…do you?
