comment Are you allowed to borrow money from another Jew with interest?
I guess the bible doesn't give any discounts to atheists, as was already explained to me here - judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/23519/… Also, regarding banks, I will add that I heard that banks in Israel have "special arrangements" that make it so religious Jews won't violate any prohibitions while taking a loan (I don't know what those arrangements are though)

comment Can a Jew own a business that employs or pays atheist Jews on Shabbat?
Thanks, interesting stuff here ... though because of the special language and details, the answer is a bit hard to understand. Can you provide a TL;DR?

@CharlesKoppelman - that's not a relevant proposal for my situation, but thanks.

@Annelise - Actually, I don't feel the 2nd frustration you wrote about. However, I do feel 2 frustrations, the second being that a religion that is closer to me than all other religions (my sister is religious), is built in this intolerate rigid way (Of course, it's not the first time I encounter Judaism, so I'm not surprised). I'm not blaming anyone here ... Judaism is what it is ... I just don't understand people who choose to practice it, and doubt I ever will.

@CharlesKoppelman - he actually asked me to talk to his rabbi. Why is this so open to interpretation?

It's frustrating because I feel like I'm discriminated against by a Jew for being a Jew.

@msh210 Because I assume there is some reason public transport shuts down (it is definitely 'because' of some Jewish people)...
