comment Why does David say that he only sinned against G-d?
@JimThio I don't understand. Are you saying that a man can marry two women at once or that three people can all marry together?

comment Unusual applications of Asher Yatzar
I've said it when getting an EEG or when watching my wife's ultrasound. Not sure if anyone else holds by that sort of thing, but I think seeing your own openings and closings is a great opportunity to thank G-d for it.

comment How can I make my Judaism more enjoyable?
I was one work project away from writing something very similar. My only addition is that changing various things in your life might make you happier in general.

I highly doubt that Milton Friedman actually uses the word "evil" and even more highly doubt that he was basing anything on Jewish sources. Karl Marx and Emma Goldman were also Jews.

@DoubleAA Sometimes brightness impacts color words - so one word can be "bright yellow/green" and another is "pale yellow/green"

comment star of david and the cross
I agree with all the "no" answers (and the "what a lovely thought" answers, too) but want to add a link to more information so you can understand what @SethJ means by Tallith. We call it a prayer shawl but it is used in the act of prayer, not as a receptacle for prayers.

comment May a Jew be a Freemason?
There are two rites in Freemasonry - the Yorkish rite and the Scottish rite. The Yorkish rite demands a belief in Christianity, but the Scottish, only monotheism.
