Who Is A Jew?

I read an entry from the blog of RabbiJason,com with interest. It is about the seemingly endless debate concerning who a Jew is and/or is not. I am constanly amazed by the people who speak of that of which they know very little or by the folks who seem to think that their view of Judaism is the one and only correct view.

Well, I would like to suggest you click on and read ESPN Joins the Who is a Jew Debate for yourself.

Incidentally, I have previously addressed a similar topic on my other blog, Roland Hansen Commentary, that you can also click on over to read; it is We all know what a Jew looks like. Right? and it in turn will link you back to a Roland’s Ramblings entry of a couple years ago concerning what is a Jew.

One Response to Who Is A Jew?

    I refer to a calendar put out by the Hasidim, A Jew is a Jew is a Jew is a Jew regardless of practice, affilication, and I cannot remember the rest. Have the calendar in Ohio. A Jew is one born of a Jewish mother, although if the Reform movement wants to qualify a Jew being born only to a Jewish father, whats wrong with that? We are a people, and that’s that. Let’s concentrate on bigger issues as anti-semitism. And if a person wants to call himself a Jew, we need all the help we can get. By the way, did you notice the black ribbons worn by congressmen during the President’s State of the Union? Also white for peace. It was a jewish congresswomen who lives in Weston, Fl., not far from where we are who is a friend of Rep. Giffords, who introduced it. Where do you think that comes from? I may still have some of mine, when grandma, grandpa, Michael, Renee, your Mom died. I do not know.
