Judaism beliefs on interracial dating

24 Dec

Although we refer to ourselves as G-d's chosen people, we do not believe that G-d chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority.According to the Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2b), G-d offered the Torah to all the nations of the earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it.The principle is essentially a general one, and the deuteronomic explanation doesn't clarify why it singles out the Canaanites in particular; one of the Talmudic writers took it to forbid all intermarriage with non-Jewish nations.with a Midianite woman (not from the seven Canaanite nations); this took place at a time when foreign (Moabite) women were inducing the Jews to perform idolatry.

Forced divorce and excommunication of foreign women previously married to the Jews of Israel does ocur in Ezra chapter 10.

As Martin Luther King, Jr., noted, a person should be judged by his or her character, not by skin color.

There is no place in the life of the Christian for favoritism based on race (James 2:1–10).

got the reputation of being the Black Women’s website that promotes interracial dating and marriage and all that. Whatever the case, I feel the need to say that while we believe you should keep your options open when it comes to finding love, you shouldn’t begin your quest with skin tone or racial and ethnic modifiers.

And personally, I, Veronica, believe that while black men are flawed like all men, you’ll never catch me out here denouncing all of them.
