What to know about dating a jewish guy
And the rate of intermarriage has grown dramatically in recent years: according to the Jewish Databank, the rate of intermarriage has risen from 13% in 1970 to 47% since 1996.At the time, the rate of intermarriage seems to have stopped increasing, but it is now at 58% .The Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to Judaism (Deut.7:3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well.According to traditional Judaism, G-d gave Noah and his family seven commandments to observe when he saved them from the flood.These commandments, referred to as the Noahic or Noahide commandments, are inferred from Genesis Ch.I once received a message from a man who told me that many Jews do not like gentiles.He knew this because his (Jewish) girlfriend's friends and parents disapproved of him.
In addition, the Noahic commandments are applied more leniently to non-Jews than the corresponding commandments are to Jews, because non-Jews do not have the benefit of Oral Torah to guide them in interpreting the laws.The story goes on to say that the Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! , the words generally translated as "at the foot of the mountain" literally mean "underneath the mountain"!) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d's might rather than their own ability.Judaism generally recognizes that Christians and Moslems worship the same G-d that we do and those who follow the tenets of their religions can be considered righteous in the eyes of G-d.Contrary to popular belief, Judaism does not maintain that Jews are better than other people.
