Is it a good sign when someone wants to start being called by their Hebrew name?April 3, 2017 8:58 am at 8:58 am #1248875
Usually it is. It usually means that they are starting to identify more Jewishly and no longer want to be called by a goyish name. Unless you have reason to believe it’s coming from somewhere else (no idea what that can be, unless they are criminals and the law enforcement is after them and they are trying to hide their identity or something – but otherwise, I think that you can assume it’s a good sign.)April 8, 2017 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #1252850
Just wanted to add something: I am wondering why you asked the question. In the case you are talking about, do you have reason to believe that there is another reason and it is not a good sign?April 8, 2017 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #1252849
Rebshidduch, I responded a while ago, but I wasn’t sure if you saw, since it shows up as “1 voice and 0 replies” for some odd reason, so you may have thought there was no response.
Hence, the bump.April 8, 2017 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #1252888

Lilmod, no I never got this response. To be honest the reason I asked was because the guy had asked me to stop calling him by his english name and only by his Jewish name and started telling me how he likes learning Hebrew subjects and keeps asking me to hang out with him because he wants to be friends with me.April 9, 2017 12:32 am at 12:32 am #1252908
Rebshidduch, when I first responded, I thought you were referring to your learning partner.
I then realized you might be talking about the guy. That was the reason for post #850. I think you know the answer to my question and you can use that answer to figure out the answer to your question in your opening post. I think this is a question you can and should answer for yourself.April 9, 2017 1:06 am at 1:06 am #1252925
Lilmod, you mean that it is not a good sign because you think he is not really doing it for the right reasons and that he is only doing it for me? But I thought there was something in the Torah where it says something like if a person is doing something for the wrong reason example a husband or wive they will end up coming to doing it for the right reason?
