Why has Israel established secularism in the holy land?
- Anonymous10 years agoFavorite Answer
Judaism teaches that Jews should not push their beliefs onto another, and as such secularism can exist. Jews can become secular yet remain Jews, there is no contradiction; and, while there are Orthodox organizations to try to make certain Jews more religious, they cannot force anyone to be more religious since it is against Jewish teachings.
Basically, Jews are supposed to be fine with whatever you believe in, and seculars are no exception.

All land is holy, yet its persons are actually not. Israel is between the main corrupt worldwide places interior the international. The Israel spoken of interior the Bible is long long previous; today's Israel is occupied territory and undeserved.

As an Israeli Jew I can clear the air by saying that you cannot become secular and still remain a Jew, you would simply be an Israeli or whatever other nationality you are. It is taught that no Jew may press his/her faith, but that does not mean we will tolerate indifference in our own communities. The Israeli government is hoping to make Israel look less Jewish to help ease the Palestinian population into believing that they really are welcome to stay in peace and share what Israel has to offer.

Because people erroneously believe that Israel should be Jewish and secular, which is by definition a contradiction.
The only thing that has held the Jewish people together has been the Torah.
If one generation refuses to follow Torah the next generation wants to intermarry and the generation after that, is not Jewish at all.
