HaBucher HaChushev Ploni ben Nistar here for shtick, news and fun. You know, a Chassidic life isn't as boring and heavy as most people might think! ;-)
מצוה גדולה להיות בשמחה תמיד
Remember you can always easily stop the playlist at the bottom of this page. Also don't hesitate to send me an 'ask' if you have any questions. I don't bite at the first time.
DISCLAIMER: Questions on Jewish Law (Halacha), I will try to answer to the best of my ability. Note that my understanding may not be accurate nor be the final word on asked topic. One should consult an Orthodox Rabbi before drawing any conclusions.
Good question. There are many things. But if I had to stick to one thing, it would be that they have to realize it is ‘everything or nothing.’
Judaism is not a pick & choose ‘religion’. For the Jew, it is a divine way of life. We cannot pick certain things we like, and leave out the things we don’t like. We cannot say: “Well… I know halacha (Jewish law) says this, but I say that.” That’s not how it works. If halacha forbids us to do/eat/or whatever something, we are simply forbidden to do so.
Or you keep the Torah, all of the halochos (Jewish laws), etc… or you don’t. If it’s the latter, then you should remain a non-Jew and live a good non-Jewish life.
It is all or nothing.
