Maybe Hugh is on to something. I say for now on, whenever he starts playing his Socratic games, we simply answer in the same way he does. Either with another question, or by saying we have the answer, but we're not sharing it because he wouldn't understand. I'm sure this will make for real productive conversation.

rabbee: not without a beard, mustache, muscles, and sex change operation - the term Rabbee or mistaken as Rabbi is masculine.
lying will never make, any woman a real Rabbee. i might accept, the term rabeenette. you keep wanting to forget, that eevreet is a gender sensitive language.
there is a law against, a woman giving herself a males title - mr susanblange. nor should any male, call themselves rabeenette.
I don't know what synagogue you belong to but there are two where I live that have female Rabbis. Where does it say a woman cannot be a Rabbi? It follows the example of Miriam.

of what religion?
Judaism. But the Jews don't want me. For years I went to Torah study, services, and high holy days. I follow the directives in the Hebrew bible. My religion, which I call the Truth, most closely resembles Judaism. I am the Jewish Messiah.

There are even (less than a handful) orthodox women rabbis now.

I'm not sure what you mean by "social support". I haven't been active in that scene since 1998. I'm surprised there are orthodox women Rabbis considering their attitude toward women. I thought the orthodox were basically misogynistic which is why I'm not orthodox. But then again, "...they shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion". Isaiah 52:8.

rabbee: try looking in the 611 + 2 laws, given to Moshe. it is most specific, about titles for men and for women. it forbids, cross dressing. you don't call, women as men. and you don't call, men as women. and even a sex change operation is considered a severe deformity, making you ineligible as a rabbee. don't care what the synagogues against G-D say, TheTorah from G-D says it truly all.

rabbee: no way any single male, or female. can claim to be HaMosheeach, because the title HaMosheeach, is both male and female. here is the definition of HaMosheeach:

"(and G-D said, "let US make Adam in OUR IMAGE, after OUR LIKENESS, They shall rule over the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, and over the animal, the whole earth, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. so G-D created Adam in HIS IMAGE, in The Image of G-D HE created HIM; male and female HE created Them.

G-D blessed Them, and G-D said to Them, "be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it: and rule over the fish in the sea, the bird of the sky, and every living thing that moves on the earth. ")" G-D does not lie, this is always true here in TheTorah.

rabbee: i don't trust an lying enemy of G-D, who can't even spell Merreeam correctly. those who have no respect for G-D, cannot spell names correctly in scripture.

it is no mystery, why christians have been set up. with their altered text, here in TheTorah. nobody wants to believe in the truth, when they rather believe in the lie.

with about 5000 years, of not here in TheTorah lying. there not about to give up on their lies, and be all here in The Torah still being given by G-D.

I assume it must be lonely being the Jewish Messiah, and I would hope you would have someone to talk this through with. Maybe someone who could help you.

Ignoring the craziness of the ultra-orthodox for the moment, when you think about it, 50% of the orthodox are women, so on that basis alone it is hard to stereotype them monolithically as anti-woman.

The ideological approach of traditional Judaism tends to be "separate roles but equal", and since women are traditionally entrusted with child care, their role is highly valued.

Among the modern orthodox, despite the emphasis on child care, education is still valued for women (as well as for men). As a result it was just a matter of time before some women would logically desire the same educational endpoint as men (i.e. becoming a Rabbi). That said, at this time the majority of the movement does not accept women as rabbis. Instead they are working to turn out woman scholars and woman "advisors". However, there is also an undercurrent underway, and at least one male orthodox Rabbi is now ordaining women.

It is lonely being the Messiah, but it is God who has made me. Job 40:19. Most of scripture has already been fulfilled and I do have somebody to share my life with who is Elijah the prophet. He's been my psychiatrist for 37 years and he does believe in me. He is Jewish and a child psychiatrist. He's supposed to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers. Malachi 4:4-6. That is in part what he does for a living.

Funny -- I'm almost SURE the Torah says there's only ONE G-d.
rabbee: that's not exactly, what it says. TheTorah does stipulate, and acknowledge there are other g-ds. other wise there is no point in stating, you shall not mention the g-ds of others in MY Presence

but G-D does claims to be the master, of all other g-ds. and that no other except THEIR Son Adam, is given with their OUR IMAGE And LIKENESS. and that no other g-d, is given with this OUR IMAGE of The YESHOOAH HOO VHEE G-D.

it's kind of freaky, but there is That Glowing WOMAN inside of That Glowing G-D GUY. as i do not think, you can fully comprehend this, without actually having seen G-D. THEY move Together in unison. now that is, True Unity.

and G-D is the ever most powerful, and totally true, of all those other g-ds.
