This comment from “Naomi” deserves its own post:
While walking to work from the subway, a gentleman with little green books said, “Would you like a copy of the New Testament?” Without pausing, I said “No thanks, I have the old one.”
Naomi is full of words of wisdom!
Even better: I have a Jewish coworker who has moved away from all observance (though his parents are observant and I think he still lives at home – he’s just graduated college). Because I was out the first two days and the last two days of Pesach, my Catholic coworker said, “Heck, we should all convert to Judaism!” (to get the days off, of course). My Jewish coworker agreed. I said to him “You don’t have to convert! It’s your religion!”
