Rabbi Explains Why NOT TO JUDGE Judaism by Jews!
Rabbi ‘Gav’ Friedman outlines why people should not look at Jews and come to a conclusion about the Jewish religion based on their behaviour. He says (minute 1:10) that saying ‘I once saw a religious Jew and they were really mean, I will never be a religious Jew’ is equivalent to saying the same thing about people in general. One wouldn’t begin to dislike humanity as a whole because some people do bad things.
He says often, though Jews are supposed to uphold a certain standard especially if they claim to be religious, many may fall short, but this doesn’t mean they are the proper representatives of what Judaism expects from people. After all, they’re only human. Click the video.
