This week we are embroiled in the “scandal” of the Sha’s  Minister of Religious Affairs, or "whatever", saying that in his opinion Reform Jews are not Jews….



Yes, but Minister Azoulai also believes that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not really Jews either because they never received the written Torah or the Oral laws…

Yes, poor Abraham, Isaac and Jacob…..they merely spoke with either God or his angels face to face….They never had the good fortune to read the Rashi like Minister Azoulai has had….

But, then again, maybe this is the precise reason why Minister Azoulai has NEVER spoken with God or one of his angels face to face.  Minister Azoulai has the Talmud, who needs God ?

Regardless, if you think you can prove that Judaism passes thru the mother and is based on matrilinials descent, please first read the conditions of the challenge:
