Speaking as someone who was raised an Orthodox Jew (and not a Reform Jew, as Brother Nathanael was), I think I know a bit more about the inner workings of authentic ("Orthodox") Judaism. I'm not out to vilify Jews; my issue is not with JEWS but with JUDAISM. My own children were taught in Orthodox Jewish Hebrew school that "Love your neighbor as yourself" means only other Jews; my youngest came home very upset about that, because she has many Gentile family members, including her own father. Basically, she interpreted that to mean they don't expect her to treat her own father with kindness.
In the 1980s when I began doing family genealogy, I asked my mother (a convert to Orthodox Judaism) for the family records. One of the things she gave me was her ketubah (Jewish marriage certificate). I noticed on it that the word "ha'betulah" (the virgin) before her name was crossed off. I translated the certificate as best I could (it was in Aramaic), and then called an Orthodox rabbi to ask why "ha'betulah" was crossed out.
He asked me if my mother was a convert to Judaism, and I replied in the affirmative. He then said (and I will never forget these words), "When a Gentile woman converts to Orthodox Judaism, it is assumed she was not a virgin because in ancient times, Gentile women often engaged in immoral sexual practices as part of their pagan religions".
He basically said they assume all Gentile women are whores. My mother, who grew up as a very strict Traditional Roman Catholic before Vatican II, in a time when women guarded their virginity, they assumed was a whore. I knew many Jewish girls when I was growing up who were very sexually immoral, yet MY mother gets assumed to be a whore, simply because she was born a Gentile? Later om, when I read in the Talmud Bavli (Babylonian Talmud) that they called the Holy Theotokos a hairdresser and a whore (God forbid!), I saw they seem to have a proclivity for doing this, making incorrect assumptions about women who are actually sexually pure.
These are just some of the issues I have with JUDAISM (not Jews).
