    This was awesome’!!!!!! Hate that this is even a question ! Yasher Koach Rabbi!!

  2. Wish there were more options out there than Jdate, which sucks. As this is so important to Jewish continuity, why are no resources being put towards getting members of the tribe together?

  3. Romeo Singh says:

    GOD BLESS ISRAEL…

  4. RABI DON T KNOW A THING ABOUT LOVE.LOVE IS NOT ABOUT IF YOU ARE A JEW OR NOT.I AM A CHRISTIAN AND I LOVE A JEW,IS THAT A SIN?

  5. Dean Petree says:

    Sure Jews should marry Jews, why not….

  6. Well I like the idea, but jewish community needs to grow in that communities can get together and meet people. On the other hand, there is always a mother telling her son, “She’s pretty and a nice Jewish girl” and to the daughter, “He’s smart, good looking, and jewish” with a big grin. But, some how they look at this as a set up, when it’s really – hey check them out, you never know ;) We love our kids and want them happy:) and when you don’t have to deal with religious issues it’s so much easier.

  7. Their should marry who ever their want…this is the 21rst century…not the Middle Ages…all these tribal rules divide people…same as the Muslims with their silly rules !

  8. Daniel Siad says:

    Stupid ! You are creating racism just like Arabs , why just not believe in Love you marry who ever you fall in Love with…there is one God the same for all universe.

  9. It’s in the bible people read.

  10. I am just saying you can marry who ever you want and who ever you love. I am not racist or making a rule I am saying that when you get married it is easier to marry someone with the same religious beliefs. I say this because when you marry a person who has the same religious convictions as yourself it is much easier to raise children, celebrate religious holidays, financial issues, etc. If Christians marry Christians is easy you both eat same foods, celebrate holidays etc. If Jewish religion and married to Christian it is hard, to raise Children, kosher/non-kosher, holidays Hannakah/Christmas, let alone decide on what day is the day if rest. All this doesn’t even matter if you don’t have any religious convictions, but if you do just think about it- if you plan on getting married once in a life time and for 50 years or more and you have religious convictions either Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, etc- it’s easier less stress if you marry someone of the same faith. Majority not all Mormons, Catholics, and Muslims still do practice this.

  11. Is it really possible for Jews and non-Jews to really be in a true union? I wonder if our motivations and standards are what they should be.

  12. If faith is important then it needs to be shared in marriage, IMHO. But when we are young and dumb we don’t always make wise choices according to our faith and sometimes suffer for it.

  13. Amen ! Still on Jdate, grrrrr.

  14. jews should convert nonjews!

  15. jews should convert nonjews!

    I am a Jewish man married to a woman who was raised Catholic but who is essentially an atheist. However, we are raising our two daughters within the Jewish faith and have this reflects in our home. Although not religious she serves an active part in synagogue life where my daughters are concerned. I think you can marry a non-Jew and still live a Jewish life and instill Jewish heritage and values in our children.

  17. I have to say that I think one of the major causes of loss of Jewish identity among children of couples in which one person is Jewish and the other is not, is that there’s so much ostracizing in the community of both the Jewish parent and the resulting child. We should encourage Jews to marry other Jews, but treating people who marry out as if they’re traitors isn’t helpful, nor is making comments like “how could a Jew and a non-Jew truly love each other?” which there’s a fair bit of in here.

    A better solution is to outreach to the resulting children and make sure that their Jewish identity remains strong, rather than being insulting to their parents.

    Personally, my children are as halachically Jewish as any of the commenters here, my husband is atheist and so not a member of any other religion, and I am sending them to day school and raising them in the Jewish faith. My kids will likely end up with more knowledge and passion for Judaism than quite a few people who consider themselves more “pure” or doubt that I could love my husband.

  18. …elementary my dear… ;)

We’ve completed Rosh Hashanah. We survived Yom Kippur. We enjoyed Sukkot. We celebrated Simchat Torah… What’s next? Chanukah!

As this week’s Parsha is Breishit (Genesis), we thought it would be interesting to run one of Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s talks on Torah, Creation… and Dinosaurs. The photo above is from the site AllAboutJerusalem.com and the article there talks about the dinosaur footprints that were found in Beit Zayit in Jerusalem.

Yishai debates a cynical friend about the Jewish State, talks about the lack of Sukkot in the Hague, and broadcasts from the Moshav Carlebach Music Festival.

Yishai is joined by Renowned Israeli cantor Binyamin Nakonechny and Malkah Fleisher in-studio with special Sukkot songs and stories. Listen in and get inspired!

Jeremy Gimpel sent us this amazing Sukkot related video linking the ancient with the modern…

Yishai presents a special Sukkot show directly from Jerusalem!

Yishai Fleisher talks to Zvika Klein, award-winning journalist covering the Diaspora beat for Makor Rishon and NRG, about the shocking reality of Jews living in refugee camps in Ukraine’s war zone. Also Gil Hoffman, VOI broadcaster and Chief Political Correspondent for the Jerusalem Post recounts the plight of another long-suffering Jew, Jonathan Pollard.

The effort to bring the Pattersons’ remains to Israel took three years and involved obtaining the approval of their grandson Alan, as well as the permission of a U.S. court.

Underneath all of the mess in Syria, Israel prefers Russian-backed Assad over jihadist rebels.

The “Shomrim” security squad tracked own the suspect.

We are told that someone who says that God’s mercy extends to a bird’s nest should be silenced.
