I Can’t be Circumcised

Does that mean I don’t have a covenant? Is it possible for a single and/or divorced woman [who identifies as Gentile] to enter into a covenant relationship with God, and if so, how? Due to the female anatomy, I can not be circumcised. This is something I’ve wondered about for years. Is there a verse...

Who is My Father?

Dear Rabbi Daniel and Susan Lapin, I have been listening to your podcasts and YouTube teachings the past 3-4 weeks.

Infertility

I’d like to begin by thanking you both for your wonderful teachings, which have been critical to my understanding and progress toward my 5Fs. Although all 5Fs are important, I recognize the significance of family and the critical role it plays not only in our individual lives but also in society. However, I was curious...

Which Job Should I Take?

I’m going to start a new job next week. They are going to pay me more than the previous company. They are going to teach me some new skills also. But, I’ve found another offer where they offer over 25% more than the new company and they require skills I already have. Should I even...
