Judaism welcomes every righteous individual. If you are a good person and you find a connection with the values of Judaism, we look forward to having you join us. Until you ave spent some time sutdying Judaoism you will not understadn the true beauthy of our religion.

No other religion on Earth has managed to last 3,000 years while many other religious groups are doing everything they can to kill or control us. I am seaking of Christinaity and Islam. Without the intervetion of G-d we would not be here today.

I'm about to officially become a Reform Jew, and very happy about it. I'd been raised in a Christian family, but began having serious doubts about that faith a long time ago. I feel I've finally "come home".

When choosing a religion make sure you do your homework read into all religions ..and choose the one that suits you best ..the one that touches your truest beliefs ..don't listen to general statements like this one...

That wouldnt be the case if your leaders were true torah jews. They have been scaring your people into believing Chirstians (and now Muslims) are dangerous just to keep them inside the limits of a jewish bubble. Smart but it isnt holy. The rabbinic authority cannot justify the talmud over the torah as they usually do. Only time will end this curse that has been around for 2500 years. Jews have been around for 3000yrs, rabbi have been around of 2500yrs.

Your are ingorant....
Plenty of Asian religions have lasted a lot longer than that. And hardly any of them have tried starting wars over stupid stuff like "who should have the holy land" and without "God" we would probably have less wars altogether

All the religions in the world even combined won't save one hair on your head from sin. The Lord has given us His Word (Bible) and even come in the flesh as HE promised to set you free. Put away your earthy religions and turn to the Truth of the Lord and quit seeking what is only to be found in Him. Christ Jesus (Yeshua Ha Mashiach)

Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

1Co 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Co 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1Co 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Co 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are:
1Co 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Co 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Co 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

What nonsense. No "rabbinic authority" justifies Talmud over Torah. Besides, there is no monolithic command center for judaism, so who would listen anyway?
Sis you know there is more than one talmud?

Bill in the Babylonian Talmud, this verse is written promoting the Talmud over all other books of authority, inlcuding the Torah:

Erubin 21b (Soncino edition): "My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah."

There you have it. You see my Jewish brother, you being a true Jew may not follow thi principle, but there are some so-called Jews that do follow it.

I interpret that to mean to trust the Torah.

Right "be more careful in the observance(following) of the words of the Scribes(Talmud, rabbinic Tradition)than in the words of the Torah(Laws of Moses, Torah, Tanakh)."

What's your point? How can you say that is says to trust the Torah, when it clearly says to be more careful in following the Talmud than the Torah.

What would you interpret if I told you, "Bill, be more careful in following your father's commands instead of your mother's?" If you respond that it means to trust your mother more, than you are being deceitful. It obviously says to follow your father more closely than your mother. Please, Bill. If you are a true Jew you would accept that this is written in your Talmud and accept when a clear argument is posed against you. It clearly says to follow more the Talmud than the Torah, in other words, that the Talmud is more important the the Laws of Moses. You can accept it and admit and I will respect you if you say that a true Jew holds the Laws of Moses to be supreme, but do not deny that this is written in your Talmud. There is no way around it.

Or, if I were to tel you:
be more careful playing with bad boys than with your brothers and sisters.

The statement means, that the Torah is NOT altered by the Scribes, while other writings may be, or they are the creations of the scribes.
Anti-semites are sooo confused.

the words of the scribes, ARE NOT the words of the Torah.
this is all over nazi/moslem websites...intelligence is not a prerequisite for either group.
