Orthodox Rabbi Comments

You want to do this the way Jesus would? Then, look to us, your Orthodox Jewish big brothers and sisters.

We do not base Judaism upon belief. We do not seek to discriminate between 'good' Jews and 'bad' Jews. We do not enshrine hatred (GLBT people are 'bad', etc.) in our Jewish documents.

What do we do? We embrace all Jews. ALL JEWS!

Suggestion: Get over all your politics. Dump the Book of Discipline. Get over the 'we are the real McCoy but you (fill in the blank) are sinners and going to Hell' nonsense.

Faith is not about power and control, people.

Notable Quotes   


   Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove "When Jesus said, 'I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly' in John 10:10, he wasn’t thinking about a victory for those who have used religion to fight back against the gains of the civil rights movement. Jesus was inviting all of us to work together for the vision at the heart of that movement — a beloved community where all people created in God’s image can thrive."

– Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, writing in "The Evangelical Case Against Judge Kavanaugh" in the Sept. 3 New York Times.
