I am very interested in the Jewish religion, but do not plan on becoming Jewish. I feel that being a Noahide will be very fulfilling for me spiritually and want to provide my children with a somewhat religious upbringing.
Would we be welcome at the synagogue even if we do not plan on becoming Jewish?
Is there a Jewish Sunday school?
Would Jewish Sunday school not be appropriate for my kids since they are not Jewish?
Yes; you're certainly welcome. We often have visitors at my synagogue. Don't forget to stay for the Onega afterward; it's a light meal or finger foods (fruit, cakes, sandwiches, etc); it's a good chance to meet people.
Your children would certainly be welcome at Sunday school; check with the synagogue office to find out what time they're held. There are also plenty of adult classes that teach all kinds of things like Hebrew, Basic Judaism, Jewish music, keeping kosher, and any number of other topics (although most will start in the fall along with the school year). Most synagogues have a web site, too, so that's a good resource.
Yes you would be welcome in a synagogue. You may want to call and talk with the rabbi first. Ask if they have classes on Sunday and if your kids may attend.
At the Conservative synagogue that I occasionally attend the Sunday classes are limited to kids who are Jewish and possibly kids whose parents are taking conversion classes. This may not be the case everywhere.
I am not sure I understood your question about Sunday school. Activities that involve creating (cutting, gluing, writing, etc) are forbidden on the Sabbath so many synagogues have classes on Sunday morning. I am not sure if this is what you meant. Some synagogues may have special services for the younger kids on Friday night or Saturday morning.
Yes they are, actually, they are quite welcome. Obviously call the synagogue in question so they know you are coming. Bear in mind there are different movements within Judaism and these movements set up their synagogues differently.
I spent several years in synagogue when I was considering conversion. I never completed that conversion and I still often attend services. I am still quite welcome. My very close friends' child had his bar Mitzi, which I was a part of.
They do have various Sunday and weeknight programs. I don't see any Shula being upset that you want your kids to be part of the program. During my conversion I attended these classes often?my Hebrew is pretty good now. Most Jews encourage others to learn about the faith.
Even when I was stationed in Jerusalem, everyone had open doors?so long as the rifle was pointed in the other direction. So as long as you follow everyday manners and etiquette it shouldn't be a problem. If it is a problem then go to another synagogue.
One of the reasons there are so few Jews in the world is that they don't allow people to become Jews. Jews even have incest and inbreed to keep what they think is vile blood lines out of their pro genies.
They follow what is called the Protocols of Zionism. They coined the word "gym" which is anyone who isn't a Jew and those people are vermin and less than filthy animals.
The Protocols Of Zion 1-8
The evils of The Protocols Of Zion 1-8. This is already existing in a subtle level in American society, small and subtle, but already indirectly affecting their psyche through the use of political correctness policy which is nothing but an inverted form of thought control.
8. By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move the mobs and with their hands we shall wipe out all those who hinder us on our way.
PROTOCOL No. 6
1. We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches, upon which even, large fortunes of the gymI'mill depend to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of the States on the day after the political smash.
WE SHALL DESTROY GOD
3. But even freedom might be harmless and have its place in the State economy without injury to the well-being of the peoples if it rested upon the foundation of faith in God, upon the brotherhood of humanity, unconnected with the conception of equality, which is negatived by the very laws of creation, for they have established subordination. With such a faith as this a people might be governed by a wardship of parishes, and would walk contentedly and humbly under the guiding hand of its spiritual pastor submitting to the dispositions of God upon earth. This is the reason why IT IS INDISPENSABLE FOR US TO UNDERMINE ALL FAITH, TO TEAR OUT OF THE MIND OF THE "GOYIM" THE VERY PRINCIPLE OF GOD-HEAD AND THE SPIRIT, AND TO PUT IN ITS PLACE ARITHMETICAL CALCULATIONS AND MATERIAL NEEDS.
"Through our national bank, the Federal Reserve, we extend book credit which we create from nothing to all local banks ...[Thus] we bring industry, management and lab our into our debt...and pit management against lab our so they will never unite and attack us and usher in a debt-free industrial utopia."
Through control of banking, the "Jews" acquired a total monopoly of "the movie industry, the radio networks and the newly developing television media...we took over the publication of all school materials... Even your music! We censor the songs released for publication long before they reach the publishers...we will have complete control of your thinking."
"We have castrated society through fear and intimidation. Its manhood exists only in combination with a feminine outward appearance. Being so neutered, the populace has become docile and easily ruled. As all geldings...their thoughts are not involved with the concerns of the future and their posterity, but only with the present and with the next meal."
Yes, of course, you can visit and take classes, so can the children.
Ruth--The Eye's religion does not forbid lying; s/he's The Eye of Amalek. Look'er up. Amalekites will do anything.
And note well: The Eye of Amalek is the same as the Eye of Sauron from the movie.
I think the Eye's motives are more complex than they may appear.
I will say no more.
Non-Jews Visiting a Synagogue
Non-Jews are always welcome to attend services in a synagogue, so long as they behave as proper guests. Proselytizing ( MEANS COVERTING)and "witnessing" to the congregation are not proper guest behavior.
When going to a synagogue, you should dress as you would for church: nicely, formally, and modestly. A man should wear a yarmulke (skullcap) if Jewish men in the congregation do so; yarmulkes are available at the entrance for those who do not have one. In some synagogues, married women should also wear a head covering. A piece of lace sometimes called a "chapel hat" is generally provided for this purpose in synagogues where this is required.
NO TALIT FOR NON JEWS
Non-Jews should not, however, wear a tall it (prayer shawl) or Teflon, because these items are signs of our obligation to observe Jewish law.
WOMEN AND MEN IN DIFFERENT SEATINGS
If you are in an Orthodox synagogue, be careful to sit in the right section: men and women are seated separately in an Orthodox synagogue. See The Role of Women in the Synagogue for details.
During services, non-Jews can follow along with the English, which is normally printed side-by-side with the Hebrew in the prayerbook. You may join in with as much or as little of the prayer service as you feel comfortable participating in. You may wish to review Jewish Liturgy before attending the service, to gain a better understanding of what is going on.
Non-Jews should stand whenever the Ark is open and when the Torah is carried to or from the Ark, as a sign of respect for the Torah and for G-d. At any other time where worshipers stand, non-Jews may stand or sit.
No Jewish Sunday School .
Judaism Follows the Sabbath ( Sabbat on Saturday.(Shabbat, Shabbos) Not apposite to attend ..for children
