Does a non-Jew in the process of converting need to repent for making fun of a statement that was reportedly made by a Jewish sage (e.g. saying that 'no one with a mind can accept it')? If so, what do Jewish sources say regarding how to go about such repentance?

  • Interesting question. I would assume, that it wouldn't be as much of a problem for non Jews being that they weren't commanded to follow and listen to the sages. – user613 Aug 20 '15 at 12:43
  • @user613 maybe, but they are still holy men... – mil Aug 20 '15 at 15:17
  • Right. It's still definitely a bad thing – user613 Aug 20 '15 at 18:33
