jew from europe

to avoid this kind of ditulion of the jewish faith there are practical solutions: do not marry a non-jew, or have yourself shmadded.
the kind of eitzes paul citrin gives are for those who do not care about keeping the slightest jewish tradition. just image a catholic priest splashing his holy water on a jewish cemetery…….a tombstone with a cross on a jewish cemetery. come on paul…….

Rabbi Maurice Harris

I’m saddened to see hateful comments that offer a very narrow perspective on what it means to be Jewish, or how to work towards new, more inclusive paradigms for healthy Jewish life. While the changes that face us as a people and a religious community in this era are scary for many people, Judaism has shown throughout its long history a tremendous capacity for creative adaptation, and that’s the challenge the current moment asks of us. Part of that challenge includes looking for ways to welcome, appreciate, and support interfaith families, particularly those who have approached the Jewish community, with all their vulnerability and hope, and have asked for ways they can participate meaningfully and contribute to Jewish life.
