Then just yesterday after praying, a Trump supporting member spoke out to proclaim that he had a debate with one of his sons and they determined that Judaism is really a "Conservative Religion" because the Torah emphasizes "personal responsibility" to the Man above who actually prefers Conservatives to Liberals. Huh? Not only is it absurd to assert G-d prefers one political party over another, it is more absurd that the man speaking has little real experience in Judaism, his wife is Catholic, one of his son's is a "Jew for Jesus" and his other son is married to a non-Jew as well. It also seems odd considering the Torah not only promotes participation in communal affairs, but also the need to protect those that cannot protect themselves. So how in the world can ANYONE say Judaism really reflects "Conservative values?" I guess it must be easier to support one's own views with ridiculous statements than to actually study Torah and actively live all of its tenets. I mean, "Heal the World" doesn't take a back seat to making as much money and power as one can get, THEN worry about others.
And with that note, I would like to wish all of my Jewish friends a La'Shanna Tova for a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Spiritually satisfying New Year! Have a great week!
