TV and Respect
We should thank G-d that TV is portraying Jews and Jewish customs without negativity. Thank G-d, every little bit helps.

It is so NOT CUTE to see them mispronouncing our beloved Yiddish! I have enough trouble, and I'm Jewish, love it and use it regularly,thank-you! Wrong words at the wrong time, please dont use our jargon if you dont and feel it in your kishkas when you speak....you just demonstrate and bring to our attention how much we are divided, culturally........

I'm glad the girls kept their word and really used Kosher ingredients and new bowls (even though they didn't understand why they had to).
we should always live up to our word or promise to others.

So interesting...an opportunity squandered for the cheap laugh. So who says the ditzy not so ditzy blonde isn't Jewish? But the cracks from the customer lack sensitivity and warmth and most importantly...gratitude.
And from here, not so Jewish

yes many other topics
i think eating kosher is an extremely important asset, not just to teach halachic correctness to jews but to teach non-jews about proper biblical laws of food combining. however, in a perfect world; i would appreciate it if the noahide tribes would take more account of the wisdom apparent in the family purity laws: particularly mikvah and other laws re: women taking responsibility and incentive for counting their days. it allows women to participate in ancient natural methods & is, in my view, actually very pro-active, not the opposite. Also the wisdom of kabbalah is crucial in claiming & envisioning a positive future for our world, together.

Melissa, are you serious!?
Melissa, with all the innocent human suffering in this world, why on earth would you think that a ritualistic mitzvah, as opposed to a moral one, would be more important?
June 5, 2012 4:29 PM
Non-jews are not required to fulfill the laws of family purity because among other things the concept of ritual impurity does not apply to them.
It is enough for people to do what is required and perhaps a little more. Don't look for unnecessary restrictions and complications.
