I am an American Christian who loves the Jewish people and Israel. I have no wish to proselytize or offend anyone. What I am interested in, is learning about HaShem's chosen ones and their faith so mine may be enriched.

I have applied to similar sites and have been told I was unwelcome because I am an gentile and a Christian. If my simple presence on this site makes anyone uncomfortable or is found to be offensive, I will dis-enroll for I've no wish to offend anyone. I only seek enlightenment.

    Welcome to Mi Yodeya. Sorry that this may have seemed as a strange first welcome to this site. Your first question gets closed as a duplicate. While one of the rules of this site closes questions comparing religions, personally, I find questions coming from non-Jews fascinating. As an Orthodox Jew, myself, I have to admit that sometimes my religious practice becomes so routine that I forget some of the reasons of hwy I do this. Occasionally, it takes a Gentile to ask a question to have me (re)explore things. I look forward to your questions, and, hopefully, answers as well. – DanF Feb 2 '18 at 19:52

    I see you deleted your account, but please know that you are welcome! (I hope you see this.) Also, sorry for the delay; your question came when most of us were offline for Shabbat. – Monica Cellio Feb 4 '18 at 1:35
