Jewish religion ethics are the best but the theology of god and people is pure fantasy.
3. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Tova ,   Canada   (09.21.17)
Wonderful. to hear and see a supreme court justice honour her faith. Today's generation has much to learn from those who came before us. GOD is watching the universe. There is much terror and turmoil in the world and these are the signs that will come to pass. Jews are gathered this Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur and Ruth's speech was exactly what needed to be herd.Jews are GOD,s messenger. We do good to others.
4. Jewish religion was written down, that's the MAIN VALUE.
Michael ,   California, USA   (09.23.17)
It was written down after at least a 1000 years of oral tradition, but still, there is a document, the Old Testament. And it has many mistakes in it, such as "the chosen people" or that there is "one god." Even the Ten Commandments are a farce since they are 90 percent obvious to any ethical person without any religion.

The real value of the Old Testament is in making us think, making us formulate our PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE. Judge Ginsburg and I, and millions of others like us, have formulated a philosophy of life that guides us to live with INDIVIDUAL ethical principles that make us happy. And that's all we need, that's absolutely enough.
5. If she dies soon
David ,   New york   (09.24.17)
Then she could be replaced by a judge who actually follows the law and isn't a far left activist
