I am not Jewish, but I am sympathetic to them. I am actually of the house of Ephraim, a son of Joseph, who was sold into Egypt.
I work as a scientist at a chemical compnay here in Salt Lake City, Utah. I like children and animals , but not necessarily in that order. My favorite animal is the horse, and my favorite bird the pigeon. Pigeons and Doves are considered sacred by both Jews and Christians. I think if I would have lived in ancient Israel, I would have raised pigeons to sell for sacrifice. When my kids were young, we actually did raise pigeons in the backyrd and entered them in the fairs.
I believe in the Judeo-Christian ethic as the basis for western civilization.
