Remember yesterday when I said that I inferred that those more traditionally observant than I judged me, but that my perception may be wrong?
According to the Off the Derech Poll:
Ouch. I work daily supporting Jewish organizations. I go to shul on Shabbas. I went to a Jewish Seminary for college, for Hashem*'s sake. I did try lobster once. And crab. What do you want from me? I grew up in Maryland! In a non-traditionally observant household. Of course I've had crab cakes.
What does it mean that I'm "Comfortably Numb"? "You've left Judaism and found... nada. It's kind of boring, but maybe it's kind of a relief." I've left Judaism. Funny how I wasn't aware of the fact.
I will repeat it until everyone is so sick of me that they either agree from exhaustion or leave me to weep in alienated isolation: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BAD JEW.
