TO ALL THOSE WOMEN that engage in creative religion: You cannot believe in Jesus and be a Jew!!! Not even if you call him Yeshua, Yehoshua, Yeshu or any other name. The essence of Christianity is believing in Jesus, if you do you are a Christian! Jews are a people (A nation). Some Jews are religious and observe 'Mitzvot', but most are not, they are Jews by ethnicity, nationality, common history and common fate. You do not become a Jew by taking a crash-course at some Reform Temple (The biblical Ruth Hamoavia became a Jew by marrying a Jewish man (Boaz)). Jewish Temples in the United States and other 'GOLA' communities serve to maintain Jewish National Identity and culture whereas Jewish religion is secondary and followed mostly as a tradition, not as a fervent belief. Religion is not the primary function of those Temples, preserving Jewish culture and identity is. I am writing this short clarification because several women, being members of "Jews for Jesus" have introduced themselves to me as Jews. Jews for Jesus (Despite the name) is a Christian denomination, not a stream in Judaism! Many thousands of Jews in the last two millenniums were killed in the name of Jesus Christ and many faithful Jews opted to die rather than to succumb to the demand of the inquisition to accept Jesus Christ. You will not hear the name Jesus in a Jewish Temple. Thus, the term "Jews for Jesus" is an oxymoron and if you hear the name Jesus in your place-of-prayer you know you are in a Christian Church, not a Jewish Temple!
