Question:


 


I'm going to marry a nonjew. Will God hate me? --Timothy


Answer:


 


If you are about to blow all your money on a worthless ponzi scheme - does your CPA hate you?


If you don't exercise, overeat, and smoke - does your doctor hate you?


If you are about to throw yourself in front of a locomotive - does the engineer hate you?


They all feel pity and sadness for the great loss you are about to suffer.


G-d, the Creator of us all, knows what a great tragedy it is for both parties to an intermarriage.


He feels sadness and pity for those entering in to such a union.


He also knows that you can rise above this challenge and choose not to go through with it - and He looks forward to your making the right choice - both for you and your intended partner.

G-d
It is forbidden to erase or deface the name of G-d. It is therefore customary to insert a dash in middle of G-d's name, allowing us to erase or discard the paper it is written on if necessary.
