« "Conservative" shmuckism (updated) | Main | Misinterpreting a fiasco »



The problem is that no one can decide what it means to be Jewish these days, and everyone's got a different definition for what they are and what they believe. I just wrote an article coming out this week in The NY Jewish Week about labels and how they're inherently meaningless. I think the last people who should decide the "who is a Jew" issue are the fine folks at JDate, whose history indicates that they are just going to take whatever money they're offered. They're not in the business of Jewish education, and it's even questionable if they're in this (as they claim to be) to make matches between Jewish people. As far as I can tell, they're in the business of business. (What, me, cynical? OK, maybe a little. OK, I'm done with my rant now.)
