For a Jew, you certainly talk a lot about G-d

Years ago, I had a friend who was a Christian from West Africa. I wasn't at all religious at the time but had always considered myself 'spiritual'. After some time, when it came up that I'm Jewish, she was shocked. She told me, "For a Jew, you certainly talk a lot about G-d".
Amazing, that we are the ones who invented the concept of monotheism,the first to recognize G-d in this way and yet so many of us shy away from G-d. I have to say that I was quite ambarassed that day (for my Jewish 'agnostic' and atheist 'co-religionists). Now, as a baalat teshuvah, it is being confirmed to me more and more each day how we should praise G-d all the time. It's not a Christian concept - they learned it from us!

Why G-d is not mentioned.

Hi Lori. Great Mini Video presentation and a great story. Believe it or not, I grew up in Denver and until I went to Yeshiva, G-d was apart of me internally but not in my external vocabulary. The reason being, that all my "goyisha" friends, too, were using the word, but their reference was to Jesus. My G-d was not theirs!! So this non-Jewish intermarried women was correct. Her "god" was not in her Jewish husbands equation or vocabulary for that matter.

To Victoria Sonnenberg

G-d is often written with a hyphen as a sign of reverence.

Rebbitzen means the wife of a Rabbi of a synagogue, Yeshiva, etc. The term Rebbetzin often, but not necessarily, indicates that the woman is actively involved in the synagogue, community, etc.
