Very laconic :-). I can only reply similarly: no, it isn't.
Ooookay, but it is not Jewish
Now, what do you mean by: 'judaism says that...'?
Classical Judaism, normative Judaism, rabbinical Judaism, Orthodox
Judaism, Torah Judaism, etc.
There are not SO many different teachings within Judaism.
(NOT including Reform Judaism, Reconstructionist Judaism, Karaites)
I know you don't want to make your letter long, but on what
information/knowledge/Jewish education, do you base your
disagreements with the rabbi? Are you saying that your learning is
equal to or more than, his?
I would agree if you said: 'many
rabbis, for instance rabbi Miller, say that...'
Than I would answer: 'And other rabbis say something
different, and they are as good as rabbi Miller!'
Of course, you may say to that: but the Jewish Bible
says...!' Yes, but if it were possible to unequivocally
construe the Bible, there woud not exist so many
different teachings within judaism.
I cannot agree with rabbi Miller in many points
but I would like to make my letter too long.
