comment Is there any tradition of any Jews leaving Mitzrayim before the Exodus
Is this considered to be the only time many(or any) Bene Yisrael left Egypt before Moshe? If so I will accept.

@user6591 I wonder what he thought of this.

comment Is there any tradition of any Jews leaving Mitzrayim before the Exodus
So Moshe would have been ~50 years old at the time?

comment What is the difference between Beta Israel and Beta Avraham
A more recent article: america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/8/29/… "There are 14 synagogues hidden in caves and forests in Ethiopia, he said. Each is led by a community leader who holds sway over the politics and beliefs of the congregation."

Can anyone comment on what 'officially' qualifies something as a siddur?

comment Please explain a structural similarity between Nazi ideology and Jewish religion
I also think it is of exceptional importance not to inadvertently offend or presume malintent on the part of someone seeking to understand such a difficult issue. OP is not the only one asking and the onus to respond clearly and effectively to this sort of question should be clear.

comment Please explain a structural similarity between Nazi ideology and Jewish religion
I don't know the OP's intentions(I don't detect any mal-intent) but the Nazi's did craft their ideology based on their 'choseness', and did employ parallelisms. The Nazis crafted Nazism as a counterthesis to yiddishkeit in many ways, a counterthesis must by its definition have a structure that arises from the thesis. Part of the reason they wanted to destroy the Jewish people was because the very existence of the Jewish people undermined the Nazi's contention of their choseness. Nazi's aren't just any antisemites, they're Amalek. This did arise out of the context of Social Darwinism.

comment Does Judaism encourage secular learning?
Thank you. This in particularly addresses something I was wondering about as I feel some people I know shun/disdain secular knowledge because they think it is a kiddush HaShem.

Thank you. I feel like this provides a good way of thinking about it. What are the '7 secular sciences'?

comment Does Judaism encourage secular learning?
I suppose I am looking to get a sense of the diversity of opinions. I'd be fine with an answer that presents differing/conflicting viewpoints. Actually I think that might be better.
