comment Is it possible for a man to convert to Judaism without circumcision?
I think that there are (a very few but) some Reform rabbis who do not require circumcision. There may be Renewal rabbis in that category, and perhaps Reconstructionist, but I think the vast VAST majority are not.

comment Must a Reform convert raise prior children Jewish?
Can you make this a more general question? E.g., trim down the first paragraph significantly. Also, ditto what @msh210 said - talk to the rabbi there, since s/he might have different (and certainly more relevant) expectations than generic Internet people have.

I thought that plain lentils (chickpeas?) were specifically allowed. I've heard people cite that regarding Ester.

comment Bishul Akum: State Dinners
So then lentils from scratch are considered fit for a "King's Table"? That seems ludicrous. Surely these rules were written long before mass produced and/or preserved foods...

comment Google says it is the Jewish Year 5774. The wiki says Judaism is 3000 years old. How is this discrepancy reconciled?

@Bobo If you ask something more than a yes/no question, you will likely get an answer that more directly answers your concerns. Since we're not sure what you want to know, you will likely get answers that leave something useful out.

The short answer is that yes, many observant Jews do this. Is that sufficient to answer your question?
