YOU CAN’T BE A CHRISTIAN AND
HATE OUR LORD’S OWN PEOPLE
I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia with a large Jewish population. Many of my friends were Jewish. When I got married, my best man was a Jew.
Now I live in the Midwest, a region which the late comic genius, Robin Williams, described as “mondo goyim” (gentile world). I miss the Jewish spirit I knew so well on the East Coast: that self-deprecating Jewish wit, that certain cadence of speech, that strong sense of Jewish community.
Ah yes, Jewish community.
There’s the heart of the matter.
