    Last thing! Where were you 2 weeks ago?! I could NOT for a million dollars remember the last letter on the dreidle to be a peh!

    I hope I have not offended you. You seen like a very interesting person. In your pic, are you a camera bug? Or do you take shots as your job? My sister just did a shot of 18 dogs set up for Halloween. Too funny!

    I don't think I have EVER written an email or letter this long. I apologize if it is choppy. It had me cutting characters.

    Traci S. I'm truly sorry this is so long!

    Be well. I hope I will hear from you again. No pressure

    I read the Christian story out of the Bible- compared them, but it never made sense that this "Jewish Lesson" was using Christian terms. The more I questioned over a long time-I converted. I describe myself as a person with a close relationship to Jesus Christ, I love the Jewish beliefs, traditions and Holidays, I just found personally--more. Most of my family is Jewish. You decide. No pressure. Am I still invited to that thread? I told you my story. I make cards with Judaica symbols. I told you not as a witness--not at all- but so that you would know my story, and know if I would be a good fit.

    Dear merryf,

    I apologize. As a Conservative/Orthodox Jew, you know so much more than I ever will.
    I wasn't trying to lecture, just share information. I will leave that part alone and hope you will forgive me.

    Where did you get that stamp set? If you have time can you tell me what is included in it...or tell me where to look?

    I think your cards were great.

    I appreciate your invitation to join your thread with other Jews. I want to be honest with everyone I meet. I was Jewish until I was 29.(44 now) I was teaching 1st grade Sunday School (8 years) and I pulled a story from the shelf. I only knew the basic stories. Well, I pulled out the story of Job. I'd never seen it. It talked aabout Satan on the first page, and I was always taught that Jews don't believe in Hell or Satan. I put the book away, and asked the Rabbi after school. He had no answer. Cantor-no answer. Other teachers-no answer.

    Part 1 of 2 I hope
