Keeping Jewish wonderfully weird

Culturally relevant. Interesting insights. Offbeat and funny.

Joe seems like a cool guy

Keeping Judaism weird shouldn’t involve Jesus.

There is nothing quite as disturbing for me as listening to what appears to be a cool Jewish podcast and then hearing the hosts talk about Jesus. Because they’re Messianic Jews. And I don’t need my Jewish content to come from anyone who thinks that Jesus was the messiah, no thanks, not for me. One star for not revealing this frankly very important info in their podcast description.

Nothing Jewish About this

This is a podcast run by jews for jesus , nothing jewish about it , just a sneaky way to try to get jews to convert .
