Yes, Jews Believe That Too

As it often does for its Friday Jewish World subject, the URJ's Ten Minutes of Torah picked up an editorial from the New Jersey Jewish News (this time the editorial, rather than Andrew Silow-Carroll's piece). The editor makes a point that we have been making here at the Temple for quite some time - modern Judaism encompasses many different theologies: skeptics and strict atheists are also welcome. I would add what I often say - it's ok to doubt God, but it's not Jewish to ignore the concept. In Rabbi Arthur Waskow's words, we are Godwrestlers. You can't sit this one out - either because you are comfortable with the God-concept that you had in third grade, or you rejected any God concept in high school.
