Eric---Now we are into stereotypes and bigotry.<quoted text>
Now we are into stereotypes and bigotry. I don't have a "Jewish Nose". Neither does my wife or my kids or my son's wife. Where does this stereotype of others come from Hugh? The "Jewish Nose" stereotype was used in Nazi propoganda to cause derision. Is that what you are doing, Hugh?
HughBe--- rabbi, be yourself. Truth and wisdom are not gifts given to you and other rabbis, speaking collectively.
Eric--I don't have a "Jewish Nose".
HughBe--- Some will say that such is the case because you are not a full Jew.
My points are repeated below with significant ADDITIONS for your LEARNING.
1.Judaism/religion does NOT give the Jews their DNA. Jewish DNA testings are NOT done to determine RELIGION.The tests are done to determine RACE.
2.RACE/LINEAGE gives Jews their DNA. Recall, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel etc. that is LINEAGE/race.
3.Jews are a RACE of people.
4.Judaism is a RELIGION and its members are Judahites.
5.Judaism/religion does NOT give the Jews a JEWISH NOSE.
6.RACE gives Jews, JEWISH NOSES
7. Jews were in existence LONG before Moses got the law.
8. God made a COVENANT with a people KNOWN as Israel/Jews.
9. The LAW or COVENANT did NOT make them Jews they were ALREADY Jews
10. Jews existed over a 1000 years before Judaism.
11. When Jews leave Judaism their DNA do NOT change.
12. When Jews leave Judaism they REMAIN the SEED of Abraham, Isaac and Israel and there is NOTHING that you and other rabbis can do about that REALITY.
13. When a CONVERT leaves Judaism, is s/he still a spiritual Jew? NO, NO, NO!
14. When a Jew,seed of Israel, leaves Judaism is s/he still a Jew. YES. The DNA does not change. Only DECEIVERS don't get this.
