comment Called to the Torah before wedding
Update: I did end up attending this event and learnt plenty in the process. It still didn't register that this would be part of the regular Shabbat service, so was interesting from that point of view also. Very culturally enriching and a blessing.

comment Do Jewish people keep a Bible or other scripture in their homes?
@msh210 - As per your edit - why does this need to be based from a Christian perspective? The main reason is I am non-Jewish and was trying to show that my question is based on my understanding. Many years ago Christians could only go to a church to hear the scriptures and before translation into English there were arguments against allowing non-priests access to the scriptures. That's why I wanted to see if Jewish people were allowed to keep a copy at home.

@Yaakov - I understand and appreciate that, but there's no other way for me to ask for your equivelant to something without using its name.
