This is the most important generation

I’m just listening to an amazing talk by Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky called “Why be Jewish?” It is on a website I’ve never seen before but is definitely worth taking  a look at called Judaism online. Check it out.

Anyway, one of the most interesting things he’s said so far is that the newer generation is the most important generation. If they don’t have a good answer to the question, “Why be Jewish?” they won’t be Jewish. For other generations, the dreidel and Yom Kippur were enough of a reason. Not anymore.

By the way, he’s really funny too. It’s a little lengthy but totally worth listening to.

  1. “Why Be Jewish?” was one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard. I listened to it early on in the conversion process and once I was done, I was sold. I definitely wanted to be Jewish.
