I hope he reads and understands your perspective of him.

I'll send him the article you took it from if he requests to see it.

Is it really worth it to stay as I am?

Any thoughts?

We all make choices in life to live the way we do. I made a choice over 30+ years ago to go vegetarian. It works for me and may not for you or others. I am comfortable in my choices. I have never ever eaten bacon, cheeseburgers or lobsters in my life and have no desire to. The path you take is yours. Have you ever thought going vegetarian~? Many health issues exist eating animals.

Do you live in a community with people of a similar hashkafah (Jewish outlook)? I don't and it sucks because I'm more makpid (careful) on most halachot (issues of Jewish law) than the rest of my Jewish friends and I feel pressured to break halacha to keep our young adult Jewish community alive. I'm asking because what are you going to do with your community if you suddenly go Reform?

Assuming you're serious. I mean, April is still almost a day away.

I'm your neighbor within a few miles East of you. I live in the area where there are no subdivision neighborhoods where are all the people live on large parcels of A-1 property. Thus, what neighbors? Except for the Reform synagogue downtown and Chabad at the university the only other choice is Richmond.

So Pruz, you slept on it? Still ready to abandon your faith, or ready to proceed as normal?
