comment Do Jews pray to deceased forefathers?
We pray to the deceased to ask for us from Hashem because they are closer to him.

comment Do religious Jews generally believe the serpent of Gan Eden was Satan?
@avi This is just the Rambam opinion, (I read about it in the meantime...) Probably we will never know for sure what exactly happened over there...

@avi Then where we all came from ? I am pretty sure Rambam didn't believe in evolution.

The story about Adam and Eve - indeed happened, however, like you said, G-d does not really have a strong arm... this was written just to illustrate the things.

@avi You are right about a part of what you say. You have to distinguish between a real story to a parable .

The simple story (exactly how it was) is told in the Bible - and the commentators tell what it symbolizes.

No - There are, but today we cant talk to animals. In heaven they can "talk" by the spirit, like moving thoughts, or intuition... Everything that told in the bible - DID happened in the reality AND in addition symbolizes somthing. (or many things..)
