Question
I'm a gentile, born in eastern Europe and I feel great love and respect for the Jewish people and for the Torah. I've been self educating my self reading lectures or watching video clips of Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi, Rabbi Tovia Singer, and others. Recently, I came across this website awhile ago http://www.mesora.org and at first I thought it teaches traditional Jewish Orthodox values, but after reading for awhile, I was puzzled about some of the things are being said there. I can't recollect exactly what was said that confused me, but I'd like to know if you would recommend this website for study.

Thank you,
Nathaniel N.

Answer
Hi Nathaniel,
the site is 'kosher' indeed. I do recommend it. I would also recommend www.chabad.org as it has a wealth of information on a great number of topics, as well as the text of the entire Jewish Bible with explanations, and deals with very serious topics on a level that is easy to understand and relate to.
If you have a specific question about something on Mesora.org, let me know and I'll address.
Thanks!
Eli

Expertise

If you are a Jewish person who has been approached by missionaries and who is considering leaving the Jewish faith, please let me know and I will help you see how beautiful and moreover how right the Jewish religion is. Don't leave the truth of your fathers before you resolve the facts for yourself, and I can help you on that journey.

Experience

I have been involved in counter-missionary activity for several years, counseling many Jews who have left or have considered leaving Judaism having been attracted by other religions. I have been able to show the truth to these people through the correct reading of the texts (vs. deliberately wrong translations used by missionaries), through showing how missionaries manipulate the Jewish scriptures to achieve their goals, and through helping you rediscover the beauty and truth of authentic Judaism.

Education/Credentials
Largely self-taught, I still am and will be learning for a long, long time. I have educated myself through a wealth of resources, including Nachmanides' Disputation, Hyam Maccoby's writings on Christianity and Judaism, as well as such vast resources as Outreach Judaism, Torah Atlanta, and a great number of others.
