They are not religious so I don’t understand why they are so adamant about this.I have never dated a Jewish guy, because the guys I am attracted to simply are never Jewish.As we enter the month of Adar, we are told to increase our sense of joy and happiness! In the Western culture that we are all so subtly influenced by, happiness is achieved by acquiring possessions, “positions” (careers), fame, things that are external to us.
Do you envision a life in which you are conscious of your Judaism, maintain some Jewish tradition, and/or raise your children as Jews?
I am 22 years old and keep getting into the same argument with my parents (since I started dating), because despite the fact that I have a serious boyfriend, they encourage me to find a Jewish guy.
They act as though I don’t have a “real” boyfriend.
We must be convinced of our absolute worth and value regardless of how much money I possess, how good looking or famous I am.
Each of us is a spiritual being connected to the Almighty in a physical body and world.
