    Is an orthodox news site allowed
    to be proud of the achivements of
    an NFL star who has a jewish
    father?
    What is the message to young
    kids?
    Its ok to marry out as long as
    your kids are successful?

    I don’t see how that’s the message, but yes, the whole thing is really odd.

    Being a sports star isn’t a success. That being one’s life is a monumental failure.

    Hitler YMSvZ tried to kill us off from the
    outside
    This mans father did the same thing
    from the inside of our religion

    Like it or not, Look into this mans life beyond the fact that he is actually only 1/4 Jewish (His father isnt halachically jewish either, Only his fathers father is jewish) , His actions are a “Kiddisuh Hashem” if one can say that for someone who isnt halachically jewish , but everyone thinks he is jewish. He gives time and money to jewish causes, He stands up for jewish people like in Pittsburgh.

    Being a famous Sports star can make a difference to many organizations especially with help financially

    There certainly are Poskim (Like Rav Ovadiah Yosef) who would allow him to convert on a much quicker track than just some random person off the street

    Dont be so sure about that

    And unfortunatly the reverse is probably true as well. Someone who is not Halachically jewish, but the whole world considers to be jewish does something terrible, its likely a Chilul Hashem

    Zehavasdad,
    I’m not sure what you mean that his life is a Kiddush hashem, his home life has been trashy tabloid fodder and he missed a quarter of this season because of a steroid suspension. So off the field he’s no role model and on the field he looks for cheap shortcuts over hard work

    I am certainly up to having him help me raise money for my Tzdekah, I am not up to having him get an Aliyah at my Minyan

    This was not about him personally
    it was about YWN
    The headline was trying to identify
    jews with his success
    which by default makes light of
    marrying out

    yes a goy can make a kiddish
    Hashem
    but in certain cases we can’t
    take money from them for charity

    Most tzdakahs would take his money especially since he is a Zera Yisroel.

    LH seems to have some obsession with Hitler comparisons and only devalues his comments with his hyperbole. No need to comment further. As to YWN coverage, the readership of this site, while highly diverse in their views and outlook are almost universally capable of sorting out the pop culture and general news interest stuff from somehow coming away with the notion that intermarriage or other behaviors contrary to halacha are being “endorsed” by being covered here.

    Is it yeshivish? Hmmmm. ..thats a good question.

    Like it or not intermarrage is here and not going away R’L (Even in the charedi world, it unfortunatly exists) , there are many offspring from such unions and we have to deal with them whether we like it or not. PUtting your head in the sand and saying it doesnt happen, just isnt going to work

    Actually…. I thought that YWN wanted to show the world that he was NOT Jewish….and did so in a very nice way….while the internet was busy claiming he was Jewish. Of course the haters like yourselves are two small-minded to use their pea-sized brains.

    American Jewry did more damage to our numbers than Hitler
    and YWN is insinuating that he has a Jewish father and we should be proud of the fact
    MADNESS
