  • Hanukkah Explained By Christians

    My Jewish best friend sent me this.


    That's what
    - She

    Without a clear-cut definition of sin, morality becomes a mere argument over the best way to train animals
    - Manya the Holy Szin (The Quintara Marathon)

    I may not be as old as dirt, but me and dirt are starting to have an awful lot in common

      Seriously, when I was a kid, I had a good friend (we were 6 or 7 or 8) whose parents were German Jews who had fled Hitler.

      I was often invited into their home, and it was literally like going into a foreign country. I just remember a lot of "weird" things - pictures, possessions, rituals, mannerisms....

      I honestly wish I had paid more attention and tried to learn and understand than just approaching it with a "this is weird" attitude.

        When Rob first found out he was Jewish (His dad was adopted as a child, so the records were sealed) and he began to embrace the rituals, I had several discussions with him about them and we came to a mutual agreement that him embracing them was not a bad thing. Plus, I learned quite a bit along the way.
