Many users on here have tried to demonize Jews, which honestly is just sick. There just as bad as the Nazi's and personally, I think they should all be deleted from here for good, even though Im not Jewish. I still have a respect for Jews and have many Jewish friends with a wonderful culture I'd be proud to be part of. I don't know how many there are on there though, not to many I think.

Honest, I don't think they have. There IS a difference between Israel and being Jewish. I don't think anyone (no, not even SAS23) has insulted Jews simply because they're Jewish. In all honesty, there's a lot more angst against other religions (see Matt D's current thread) and in those cases it IS solely because of their religion. Critism at Israel shouldn't be confused with anti-Semitism.
...some people here try to make out that critism against Israel IS anti-Semitism. After all, Israel is a Jewish state. Critise Israel and you critise Jews, right? I think that's wrong. There is a distinction between Israel and Jews but certain people, mainly pro-Israel, like to keep the link. It makes anyone anti-Israel seem anti-Semetic and racist.

I fast, celebrate the holidays, overall keep the faith. however, I must admit that since moving away from the family, we don't celebrate as much or as grandly as we used to.
Back before 1996 (when we moved) Passover and Hanukkah were grand affairs within my family. my grandmother would be cooking for a week before the celebrations. Passover was always the grandest one, where about 20 of us would gather at her house and enjoy a feast. Lemme see, there'd be drinks and snacks before including crackers, several kinds of cheese, pate, and vegetable dips. appetizer would be gefilte fish (never liked the stuff) and matzo ball soup. Main course would include stuffing, roast tongue, roast brisket, cornish hens, sweet potatoes and apricots, gravy, ground liver, and vegetables. dessert would include a strawberry mousse, ice cream and several kind of cakes. all made by my grandmother, and the leftovers would last for 2 weeks. sure its not all kosher, but its sooooo good.
The best things about being Jewish: 1) The food. 2) Family. 3) Traditions
