This is a kind of sequel to "Ask a Muslim". If you have a question about Judaism or Jewish culture you would like to ask (including, indeed, what "Jew" really means), post it here and a Jewish user, or user familiar with Judaism, will have a shot at answering it.
As with "Ask a Muslim", this is intended to function simply as a place for Q&A to keep the rest of the forum clean and tidy.
Theoretically, recent posts that really belong here may be moved to this thread. Just to warn you.
Your feedback and comments are of course most welcome.
Finally, as with H&R, remember that all advice is unprofessional.
IDF gals are slammin... and yeah, ask an atheist would be a good thread to sticky.
I'm wary of letting these "Ask" threads snowball. I might be able to get away with limiting it to four (Abrahamics plus Atheo-agnosticism), but drawing the line is hard and in addition, having four stickies at the top kind of undermines the very aim of "keeping the subforum unclogged".
I'll try to keep an eye on the apparent demand for such a thread. Ditto a Christianity-based counterpart.
It had occured to me, yes. Did that ever become a TSR Society?
The apologetics group did become a society! 20 members last count.
Ok to make this thread a little more effiicient and user-friendly to us all, could a mod please ensure that there is no chat, and that all posts on this thread are on-topic and are questions relating to Judaism. Otherwise it's just going to get confusing. Already it has been spammed up and I personally don't have the time to read through a load of chat. So would it be possible to erase the above posts now? When I have more time I will make a list of FAQs and myths to be inserted into the first post that have previously been asked all over the forum and it'd be easier to keep it in one place. Good good.
And to answer the first question, yes, Jewish girls and Jewish boys are very pretty and handsome.
Just wondering what views Jews on this forum have on Sacha Baron Cohen, in particular his 'Borat' alter-ego?
O.K I heard this somewhere: Jews believe that God created the earth in six days (which is the same belief as with Christians and Muslims) but they also believed that He got tired on the 6th day.
Is that true?
Not exactly "tired". I believe the Jewish and Christian traditions are the same on this matter; He simply rested. Which I suppose does imply tiredness, but it's not explicitly stated.
I don't think it is, anyway.
I have a question for a jew. Apple or orange juice?
