torah shiur about the deeper meaning of self-sacrifice.
I live for a really good Shabbos nap.
Sorry-—the Song of Songs subject matter was from the previous week’s class...a bit technical but if you were interested it’s at http://www.torahcafe.com/jewishvideo.php?vid=fc81f503d
Judaism,Torah and just being Jewish.
It’s something that goes very deep.
and they’ll still vote for obama..
Well, I’m not Jewish, but it seems to me that to be willing to die for something one would need to first live for it.
68% Orthodox (Torah-observant) Jews voted for George W. Bush in 2004. THAT is the future of American Jewry. They are having 7.5 kids per family, while secular "Jews" are intermarrying, turning gay and having abortions. It will take 20 years or so, but the liberal, secular, "Reform" Jews who worship Socialism will be absorbed, as were the generation who built the Golden Calf were after G-d made His people wander the desert for 40 years.
The Jewish idea is very simple...(tounge in cheek,) that is, we are prepared to die—to give up/over/return—our essence to our Creator. This is the only way to “get” His attention. Ok, it’s not so simple... but feel free to give a listen, though it’s geared towards Jews.
Remember that while Jews have 613 (oy vey!) commandments with which we ‘connect’ to G-d, non-Jews have 7 big ones: http://www.chabad.org/search/keyword_cdo/kid/2123/jewish/Noahide-Laws-The-Seven.htm Funny—the Jews don’t seek converts but we tell non-Jews how to live... Chutzpah! :-)
I don’t know how anyone will vote, but the “Jews who vote for Obama” thing is starting to seem tedious - it pops up on so many threads which are in no way about the elections.
My apologies if this is the first time you have mentioned it, but some posters are just on and on, spamming us with this point.
For God and Torah.
And I ain’t even Jewish.
To vote for liberal marxists to help destroy America??????????????? Ok, that’s settled!
