Sorry, my mistake. We don't mind non Jews posting in this forum on Shabbos. It's only forbidden for Jews to do so (by the Torah - not by city data).

BTW, that's a uniquely Chrstian viewpoint. Just sayin.

As a Chrstian, you're a guest in this forum. We'd appreciate it if you would refrain from coming here to lecture us on what Jews believe and don't believe.

Is there any law on this forum that says posting on Sabbath is prohibited? Perhaps a moderator could respond.
So why bother to do any of it if you don't care about the values and feel obligated by the responsibility of obedience.

And seriously, lose the know-it-all attitude.

Did you read this thread? You are showing your ignorance. There is a lot to be learned if you ask questions. Popping into a message board giving everyone what you think are the answers is bad form and also pretty arrogant. Why should anyone listen to you?

Hi Pegotty! Browsing the boards tonight and came upon this. Not a modern Orthodox synagogue, but the conservative synagogue in Durham (Beth El) has an Orthodox Kehillah that meets there. Here is the link: Beth El Synagogue: Ritual Life

Hey, there! Funny to run into people you know from other boards. :-) Beth El looks really neat and inclusive. I've actually been there before for a Holocaust Remembrance Day commemoration but didn't know anything about what kind of congregation it is.

We don't belong there - it's a bit far for us, but I've met the rabbi, and he seems like a very nice guy.
