comment Does Jewish scripture show a preference between non-belief or erroneous belief?
@Aaron See Megilla 9b. The ability to read into those verses the interpretation you present is noted, rejected and cautioned against about as early as you can find in Jewish sources. (It's true that our Septuagint does not have the listed change TTBOMK.)

comment Does Jewish scripture show a preference between non-belief or erroneous belief?
@WadCheber This may be a semantic issue, but "Judaism" (in the sense of what Jews practice and what Noahides practice) thinks that non-Jews who follow the seven Noahide laws are perfectly fine in that capacity and are not even encouraged to convert to Judaism (the kind that Jews practice). This does entail their acceptance of the general Jewish enterprise as the correct one (as it applies differently for Jews and non-Jews), but saying that 'non-Jews should ideally accept Judaism' sounds quite off to our ears.

"Judaism maintains that it is best to be Jewish" ??? I don't find that obvious...

comment Alright you Yemenites or Mizrahim out there! Matzah Recipe?
@Aaron Actually, none of the 3 reasons in your comment is a reason for it to be on-topic. The reason it is on topic is because it asks about how certain communities prepare for doing the Mitzva of eating Matzah, which is a matter of how they practice Judaism.

comment Is there an obligation for men and women to sit separately at a simcha?
@hazoriz Dancing seems to have nothing to do with the question which asked about separate "seating, entrances and coat rooms".
