I've been in 100's on Minyans and the only question has always been am I Jewish. There has never been a questioning on how I was Jewish.

I mean if a person has converted and they follow the ways or rules of Judaism of whatever branch they converted to. So if they converted to Orthodox, they live the Orthodox ways of prayer and daily living and all that goes into being an Orthodox Jew. If they follow the rules they should be allowed to be counted for minyan and called up to Torah.

Would you expect an Orthodox Jewish minyan to count a Reform/Conservative convert in the ten Jewish men needed to make a minyan?

Sheesh. Then what do we Jews even need a Torah for if we're willing to place it in the trash heap in lieu of secular values and the values of the goyim?

And this is what comes out of the mouth of a person who started a thread that no one visits anymore called: The "Ask a Jew" thread.

Do you have anything that might keep you too busy to visit this website for a while? Your anger and hatred towards your fellow Jew is making it awfully difficult to participate in this forum.
