Are We Fulfilling our Mission to the World?

I get so worked up when one of us, especially one who is observant, somehow misbehaves in any way.

If you are a non Jew who reads this blog, how would you rate it?

I have set up 3 easy polls on the margin to the right. One asking non Jews to rate this blog; one asking Jews to rate this blog; and a 3rd asking what your religious affiliation is (if any). Please check the box or boxes that most apply. After voting please comment as to why you voted as you did.

If possible I would also like to know in more detail what your background is. For example if you are Protestant which denomination? If you checked ‘other’ which religion is it… Hindu? Buddhist? If atheist, please say if you are a strong or weak atheist or agnostic… and which religion you have come from. Please explain your background more fully if you are so inclined in the comment.

I would also appreciate explanations for your vote. For example, do you gain insight into Judaism from it? Do you feel we fulfill our mission? Does this blog add or detract from it? Do you see the beauty of the Torah – or have at least have sense about it from what you read here? Just say what you feel and don’t hold back any criticisms you may have. We all learn from our mistakes. Pointing them out will only serve to improve this blog.

Finally I just want to thank all of my readers once again, for making this blog as successful as it is.
