Photo of the young Helen Keller

Anyone inflicted with a severe hearing and speech impediment cannot undergo Jewish conversion. This harsh statement was recently made by Rabbi Avraham Sherman of the Chief Rabbinical Court, in a ruling now made public.

I couldn’t believe I read that…. it’s a total admission of plans to become the ‘master race’. Today it’s the deaf, tomorrow it’s the disabled, Heaven only knows who’s next.

The court’s reasoning was that since the Halacha says that “one who is deaf, one who is young and one who is a simpleton shall be exempt form ordinance,” the woman in deemed incapable of observing mitzvahs, thus incapable of accepting the burden of ordinance, which is the cornerstone of conversion.

Helen Keller was deaf and blind. I suppose she too would have been turned away by these (insert whatever word you feel fitting) so called rabbis. Having read her books and meeting her personally many years ago, I can testify that she was more intelligent and open minded than anyone sitting on that Rabbinical Court.

With every passing day the State of Israel and the various courts within it move closer to the dream of another tyrant in recent history… it’s just plain wrong!

As this linked article states in the last sentence…. This is not my Judaism.

    What did the Rabbi say? I’m hard of hearing and I couldn’t quite make out what the good Rabbi said. What a wad!

    Thank you for continuing to be one of the great and consistent voices for reason and compassion. It is one of the great mysteries to me that so many avoid the opportunity in these perilous time.

    In the USA NO criticism of Christianity or Judaism is allowed. You can spew any hatred or threaten the life of a head of state under the sheild of Christianity or Judaism but any criticism of religion is NOT tolerated. Until this practice changes we will be suspended in a neolithic reality that allows the killing of millions of innocent people in the name of G*D.

    This is old news. The Talmud is full of racist and derogatory statements like this. How the secular jews are expected to stay sane when they are commanded to treat goyim (non-jews) like shit, is beyond me. I must say that the author of this blog is to be commended for staying sane in his community.

    Inside every jew there is a human being waiting to get out.

    Any intelligent, decent, moral human being is automatically disqualified from becoming a jew.

    God probably hears less than you think. He is likely deaf himself, and cannot see and desires no blood to be shed for sin…

    The more of religion that I see and hear, the more I reject it all. And I mean every single religion. It is, as far as I know, the stuff of hatred.

    Religion is just used as a cloak to hide a knife.
