Cool. Well if you don't have a bunch of followers or whatnot migration shouldn't be an issue 😊

If a solution can be found, then we'll be fine. If not, then some will be left out

@gaditb
The real issue of course is conversions and marriages. That's the only thing that is causing problems with regards to the Jewish people as a whole. Orthodox doesn't recognize anyone's, Conservatives recognize Orthodox but not Reform... If we can't intermarry we can't be a people.

@kittybecca @gaditb
Reform is Rabbinical but not Halakhic, but I expect they'll either reintegrate (thru Reconstructionism? It's already a trend I think) or assimilate out

@kittybecca @gaditb
I think that here we have a split between two halakhic traditions, like what happened in the Gaonic period for example. I'm not a big expert, but that's where I would look for more examples

@kittybecca @gaditb
The dispute with the Karaites is much greater than the dispute between Conservative and Orthodox Judaism, because they're both Halakhik and Rabbinical, and the Karaites are neither. And whatever happened to the Saducees, they're gone, either integrated or withered.

@kittybecca
I don't think all the examples you bring are applicable. The Hellenists either assimilated into Hellenism or back into Judaism. The split with the Samaritans may never have happened–it dates back to before there is even any external evidence of Judaism existing. Much more likely it was two Canaanite nations worshipping the same god, before the development of monotheism.

Scepticism is healthy, I think that there is reason to be optimistic bc of our history
@gaditb

@gaditb
Yeah, which is why I object to Orthodoxy, because it seems like they don't see it that way. But I'm confident that Orthodoxy (just like Reform, btw) is the product of a particular historical moment, a reaction to modernity, so they will reintegrate eventually, if there's anyone actually left....

Here's a list of things that matter more than your ability to hold a job:

- your mental health
- your physical health
- your heart
- your kindness
- your willingness to listen to others and empathize with them
- your sense of humor (lol)
- your family, blood or chosen
- your creativity
- your morals
- you, as you are

This is a *very* good interview defining the term "emotional labor", with Prof. Hochschild, who introduced the term. It speaks to my feeling that the term is applied to scenarios it's not suited best for:

"It seems like this is mostly becoming a popular term in feminist conversations. But if we talk about all the unpaid labor women do in the home as “emotional labor,” we’re insinuating that any kind of labor that falls most often to a woman is “emotional.”"
