To family and friends, It seems that we are in a kind of “day of reckoning”: right now, with people making firm decisions about their lives and lifestyles, and then pronouncing such changes and affirmations openly. I feel it is time for me to make a proclamation myself and clear the air, lest rumors fly and inaccuracies occur in the speculative reporting of the situation. Anyone who knows me also knows I am a pretty religious person.
To those Christians who find it outrageous to consider that the Jewish people have a special understanding of Torah, One of you, David I believe, misrepresented the Jewish position on this matter.
