Judaism, prob a divisive hot take, sorry 

Both secular and religious Jewishness are equally valid! but I think it's bad to do ritual but take the God part out, or replace Him with some sort of impersonal symbol out of non-Jewish spirituality. There's always been struggle with the nature of God within Judaism but is "God isn't important, how you feel is," or praying 2 "ה' רוח העולם," rly coming out of a deep conversation with Jewish philosophy? It feels assimilationist & appropriative. Love yall ❤️

@MoMartin @umalkosh @numberonebug I would say that if you're religious they're both equally important; and if you're secular, why are you using the religious framework?

My back hasn't been this bad in months. I guess it's from spending the whole day at the park for a kid birthday on Saturday. What a drag you all

@gendertreyf damn, don't you know it's so good that we're on Rosh Hashana 5,781?

@gendertreyf or, like had interesting and useful ideas. Although I shouldn't say anything bc I don't read theory, I just see what reading it does to most ppl

death ? 

i’m perturbed by how quickly RBG’s death turned into a fundraising ploy for the “left.” the very next day the focus of donation solicitors’ texts shifted from installing biden / ousting trump to “avenging” ginsburg ... like ... now i’m doubly not giving you money. have some respect. but i guess i’m in the minority bc democrats saw a big surge in their coffers ...

@dolldolldoll I hear that. We don't have a lockdown here but I kind of wish we did haha

jews.intl instance meta 

Hi friends,
As you can see I haven't been very active lately, and the person who's been doing most of the moderation has left. I can't be responsible for administering this instance anymore, but I don't want to shut it down. So this means I need someone to take my place and take over administering the instance, and ideally take over the hosting contract too.
