    Judaism Ask Me About Judaism

    Just to clarify the last part was mostly sarcasm I don not literally believe that Guru Nanak Dev or any of the other Gurus got a 'message' from G-d like in Judaism necessarily.

    Not all Jews were businessmen but they were successful so your hypothesis is probable but TBH I am not completely certain.

    Judaism Ask Me About Judaism

    There are a multitude of reasons. 1) The Jewish communities of the time(s) rejected Jesus and Muhammad as Messiah and Prophet respectively 2) These groups had historical conflicts (a good example is Muhammad fighting against the Jewish tribes of Arabia) 3) Stereotypes 4) Nationalism (ie Israel...

    Does God Want Me To Be Sikh?

    You are right that Sikhism definitely does not believe in an anthropomorphic deity. However, I can't really think of another good way to describe what I have been observing... :/ It's almost as if G-d is trying to "tell" me something.

    USA Sword-Wielding Sikhs Attack Praying Rivals At NYC Temple

    That's so sad and terrible :( I hope these people can peacefully settle their dispute and the perpetrators see the error of their ways.

    Judaism Ask Me About Judaism

    Usually, the meaning is explained in addition to the portion. However, the explanation of a portion might differ by a synagogue's affiliation (reform, conservative, orthodox) or sometimes even by individual rabbis.

    Judaism Ask Me About Judaism

    Seeker9 ji, I'm very glad you asked this question. First let me start off by saying in Judaism, there is no dualism (ie Satan vs G-d, good vs evil), in fact, in Judaism, what Christians/Muslims call Satan is in fact, an agent of G-d! G-d, being the supreme being of the universe, is the source of...

    Does God Want Me To Be Sikh?

    Re: Does God Want Me to be Sikh spnadmin ji, You raise a very good point. When I used to talk to my parents I tried to be very civil. I told them how Sikhism is a lot like Judaism. But, they didn't seem to care and all they cared about was how they looked and how they were different. I think...

    Judaism Ask Me About Judaism

    Essentially the same thing. It is important to recognize, understand, and try to preserve G-d's creation(s). Jewish people believe that they were "chosen" to recieve G-d's message (via the Hebrew prophets), HOWEVER that does NOT mean we are any better than other people (and most Jews don't think...

    Does God Want Me To Be Sikh?

    SSA, I have been looking into spirituality for the past 2 or so years. A friend of mine in England told me about Sikhism a while back. I was very fascinated to say the least. Therefore, a few months back I went to the local gurdwara (if anyone's curious- it's the Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara in...
