Any other frugal jews out there?
Nice to meet you!
Nice to meet you!
That's wonderful you go to a jewish synogogue. If it's not too personal a question- Why is it you haven't converted since you attend anyways?:jug:Well, I'm not Jewish, but we attend a Jewish congregation, so know quite a few. Our rabbi is welcoming of Gentiles, so I "feel" Jewish. Yes, they are frugal! Food items I would have thrown in the trash are saved, for example. Juice leftover from communion is always put back in the jar for next week.
I still have lots to learn from them. On the flip side, they are also very giving people.
I am orthodox Jew and happy to be so. Although I gotta say I get a leetle uncomfy when we are speaking Jews/Thrift...it veers a little close to say a website for Asians only having math puzzles cuz gosh are those people good at math. That said...
I have been a member here oh I don't know ////years.
I have 3 children. 1 reg, 1 Special Needs, 1 undergoing eval ...
We keep Kosher on a very tiny budget...and hey I know my apples..as far as thrift goes. We would have genteely starved if not for me...
I am thrifty out of neccesity but..I gotta say. I get a million dollars and I am not consume consume...We are seriously into simplicity and giving back to people and realizing that we have enough for our needs and thats ok...
I have tons of Yontif tips/shabbos food tips etc... Would you like to share??
You're right, I didn't notice the communion part. Must be Messianic.Ooh, Leah! I don't mean to take this thread down a rabbit hole.....but I **love** Cholent(never knew how to spell it before). My boss is Orthodox, and ex-dh's coworker is Sephardic(ultra-orthodox)....and we've had Cholent at both of their childrens' bar/bat mitzvahs!! YUM!!! Our friend lives in Teaneck, New Jersey, which is a very large Jewish community...schuls(sp?) in every neighborhood within walking distance.
I'm an Evangelical Christian, but I love Jewish culture and history. Oh, and to answer another question....I assume that the previous poster is talking about going to a Messianic Jewish congregation(since she mentioned communion...I could be wrong and she can correct me). Also very popular in the NY/NJ area.
