Susie,
I'm not sure that you were really asking that question. That is, I'm not sure that you are asking anything that you want to listen to someone answer. Am I right? Or are you just venting?

We are not fake Jews. We are Jews. I was a Jew in 1951 when I was born. I was a Jew when I had my bris. I was a Jew when I was Bar Mitzvah. That's something I am and cannot nor desire to change. I was born a Jew and will die a Jew.

That's why Passover makes sense to us. It's Jewish of course to celebrate and I think about it every time I eat matzo this week.

Susie, where do you live and do you celebrate Passover?

you might have been a jew once but by converting to xianity you have stopped being a jew. you cannot have it both ways. either you are a jew or a xian. which is it

Susie,
I was born a Jew; I'll die a Jew. I'm sorry you feel so intensely about this subject. But your intensity may be keeping you from seeing things from outside the box, or shall we say, objectively. Jesus was a Jew; his first followers were all Jews. The events took place in Jerusalem not in Rome or Germany. The issue of Jesus being Messiah was an in-house Jewish conversation in those days, AND in these days. It's Jewish to believe in Jesus.
