Dear pelian,

I saw the thread and couldn't help but ask. I am a Christian, so we get that out of the way so that you can understand where I am coming from. Why were the Jews thrown out of Israel? Why were they returned to Israel? I have read that those who follow Kabbalah believe non-Jews have a lesser soul, what is your perspective on this matter, what do you believe Jews were chosen for?

I am not attempting to be tricky, I would like to know your perspective. I am asking Christians the same thing on my blog. I will not provide the link, not a promotion. Because you are orthodox, I think your answer may be more telling. The last thing I will ask is what do you think of the times we are living in, the jews have returned to Israel and many, including the Jewish Congress prior to World War II, thought that would never happen.

I believe I have kept my questions and comments civil, I am not looking to get into a debate with you over beliefs, I appreciate the opportunity to hear yours. Be well.


We were thrown out of israel because we did not serve G-D properly. Hashem(the four letter name of GD) cares very deeply whether we follow the commandments in the torah. We have spent the past 2000 years trying to repent to Hashem for our misdeeds. When finally the messiah comes we can worship properly and the world will have peace because the evil will have been taken out. many rabbis believe that the messiah will arrive very shortly. Believing that the messiah can come any time is part of our faith. Zionism has been and boom and bane to the jewish people as a whole.
You misunderstand what the kabbalah writes about nonjews. Nonjews are different We have different laws because of different type of soul. That is why we eat kosher and keep sabbath. meat and milk together is poison. and breaking the sabbath disrupts the divine flow of blessing in the world.

How would you respond to questions of the Jewish faith placing materialism over spirituality?

This questions does not represent my view point but I am interested to hear the answere.

As an additional question... A large percentage of Jews are wealthy? Whats the secret? (you did say anything
)

Take care,
Reflected


The jewish faith does not place anything above the service of G-D. We are commanded to give Charity and support the study of Torah(5 books of bible) yes there are many wealthy jews. But there are far more poor jews. The secret is that jews place G-D above everything else.

Differant souls, how nice, tell me the differance between our souls. Why do you need the Messiah to come to worship properly, what is missing, God? Why can't you worship God as he said you should, he saved your nation more than once when they did? Please remember that God did not choose because you were better, he never said that. He chose and punished more for failure.

Do you wait for the Messiah because you failed or because you have earned it by being Jewish? Please let me know. Our mothers and fathers had sex and we came out, because we were born to people who believed we get a freebee, doesn't have much to do with free will. I guess Jews are just lucky that their parents had sex and they don't have to do anything to find love for others? Still doesn't make sense to me.

Let me try it another way, how should we love one another, how should we be as people? Jewish, that is not an answer. Adam was not Jewish, did he go to hell? There are othes if you need me to list them. You said to ask anything; but, be respectful, I think I have been.

I cannot answer why we have different souls becuase I do not know. The messiah will bring back all of israel back to the land of israel. Nations will Seek the jews to teach them about GD. Our Rabbis say that jews have to observe two shabbats in a row and Israel will merit having the messiah come right away. Within every generation there exists an individual who could possibly be the messiah. He could also lose this if the generation does not merit or he too many sins. The messiah is not supposed to die or be killed.

Well...okay.

Why did you guys kill Jesus?

Now we have all these crazy christians running around acting all holier-than-thou.


I personally do not believe the bible is a real account but according to the "story" was it not the Romans who actually did the deed and Jews at the time did not oppose it and were happy with outcome anyway!

As an orthodox jew, what is your understanding of the conservative and reform movement?

Before you answer, I am not looking for comparisons of "technical" belief differences and decorum.

I would specifically like your view point on why the conservative and reform institutions are looked down upon for at least trying to uphold the basic tenets of judism even though they have willfully changed some fundamental rabinical laws?

Wasn’t it one of the most famous rabbis who said the following:
Hillel raised one foot off the ground and said, “Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you. All the rest is commentary. Now go and study.”

Seriously? So you ascribe to divine command theory (that anything your deity says is true)? Ok, where does your morality come from?
