at the Kotel with Reb Gutman Locks @ Mystical Paths
David is an American, bible believing, xian who knew that his mother’s mother was a Jew, but he did not know that he was. “Awesome!” was his response when I told him.
Since he had read the Bible a lot, I was able to show him where the Torah says that you are Jewish if your mother is Jewish, (Avraham and Sarah with Yitzchok vs. Avraham and Hagar with Ishmael). I also showed him where it says that G-d is everywhere, even in hell (Psalms 139:8). And since, according to the christian book, yashka is not in the grave, so obviously, he can’t be G-d!
It was the first time I can remember ever telling these things to a christain who did not say, “I gotta go,” and walk away. David really appreciated the information.
He asked me how to buy a mezuzah (Torah scroll for his doorpost). After telling him, he went on his way, which was a totally different way than the one he walked in on. Thank G-d.
