Update, August 5: Our winner is Wendy W. from Tampa, FL

Every choice we make gives us the option of living spiritually, and every step we take is on holy ground. It makes me happy just thinking about it."

Much love to everyone on this Tu'B'Av!

Shabbos Nap! Seriously. I love the Judaism forces me to stop…to unplug (Twitter, FB, email, my beloved BB, etc.)…to enjoy my family…and to sleep! Life is just so darn hectic. And, in my case (as a pulpit rabbi), it is especially important to make that time!

Good luck to everyone ;)

The inherent logic in Torah. Once one accepts G-d and Torah everything within precedes logically.

I love that you can find Jewish teachable moments in everyday life, and that even teaching and learning waterskiing can have a Jewish component.

I love that I can walk into any synagogue in the world and find someone who acts a lot like my mom. I also love being part of the nation that brought back Hebrew.

There are so many reasons, is it really possible to answer this in a comment box.

Free food is probably number one, the ability to just hop into shul find a kiddush fight with old ladies over the cholent spoon and then have one of their husbands invite me for lunch.

Chabad – seriously people, even as a nonreligious Jew you can walk in get a free place to stay pretty much anywhere – so what you have to deal with subtle brainwashing aka kiruv – and those chabad women are smoking.

I guess it all comes down to the food and clogged arteries that we get from traditional Jew food – the only healthy Jew food seems to be pickles and seltzer.

What I love: everything. I wasn’t born a Jew (or maybe I was, just to an Irish Catholic family!) but since I was younger I had a magnetic attraction that I couldn’t shake. It is still the same today.

I love being Jewish because I feel connected to a rich heritage. The list of influential, intelligent and amazingly talented Jews is incredible to behold. To be a part of this community that shaped mankind and has informed and entertained us is a wonderfull feeling.

What I love about being Jewish is the sense of pride I get knowing that our people have lead the way in everything we do. I love the fact that Jews make up 1/4 of 1% of the population in the world and have done more good for the world than any other people, period. I love the fact the every country around of Israel, is bigger and hates the Jews, yet Israel the Israeli army continues to hold off as much as they do. Such a small country, with Such a strong army. And finally, I love my Rabbi, David Ingber and his beautiful family.

I love being Jewish because it has liberated me to work towards becoming my best self, to overcome my many short-comings, to strive to be a blessing to others. It has given me a strong structure from which I can drink deeply from the Presence of the Almighty. That powerful Ruach gives me guidance, joy, comfort and a clear knowledge that G-d has a plan for my life. IT IS AWESOME!! What a privilege to be Jewish!

Posted by ShulamitLinda on August 04, 2009

The thing I love most about being Jewish is simply that I CAN be Jewish. I wasn’t born a Jew, but after converting (no, I’m not married or engaged!), I’m as much a member of the tribe as anyone else. Judaism is so much more than a faith; it’s about peoplehood, but I got to join. Judaism allows me to belong, no questions asked— incredible.
