Ben Shapiro makes a good point about Reform Judaism

Columnist Shapiro spoke at the CPAC conference in Israel, and made a valid point about how followers of Reform Judaism aren't serious about traditions and Israel:
Right-wing media personality Ben Shapiro said he thinks Israel shouldn’t invest diplomatically in the Union of Reform Judaism in the United States and explained why he doesn’t plan to immigrate to Israel anytime soon. He was speaking at the sold-out CPAC-Israel conference, co-sponsored by the Tel Aviv International Salon and right-wing publisher Shibboleth. CPAC is the abbreviation for Conservative Political Action Conference.

[...] “It’s a very simple rubric for me: If as a Jew, your values are more in line with same-sex marriage, transgenderism and abortion than they are with, for example, the safety and security of the State of Israel – I have serious questions about how you think about yourself as a Jew,” he continued, receiving a standing ovation.
In addition to that, one can only wonder where Reform Judaists really stand on the issue of Islamofascism, jihadism, or even children's safety, and that would be just the beginning of what valid queries one could raise about their ideological standings. Also:
“If I’m looking at who’s more likely to back Israel, by polling data, Jews in the United States are the single-most atheistic group of quote-unquote ‘religious people’ anywhere.... What’s weird about Jewish identity is that it has an ethnic side because, halachically, Jews are ethnically Jewish, and then it has a religious side,” he said.

“So when people self-identify as Jews in the United States, that doesn’t actually mean that they do anything that has anything to do with Judaism; it means that their last name ends in ‘berger,’ ‘stein’ or something [similar]. And you know, there are a lot of people whose last name ends with ‘berger’ or ‘stein’ who fundamentally reject nearly all Jewish values and are secular leftists – and so they vote like secular leftists.”
On that note, one can only wonder how many atheists are in the ranks of Reform, despite any suggestions to the contrary? But there you have it, they are an embarrassment, and that's one more reason why the way Haredi clans oppose them only does more harm than good, because the Satmar, in example, are ironically anti-Zionist, just like the Reform. And if that's how the Reform are going to be, they should just stop self-identifying as Jews, period.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
