You have to be humane.'Towards the end of their never-ending conversation, the aunt started to send facts and statistics to Moshe about anti-Semitism and Jewish history.
While Moshe was quick to fight back at first, calling her out on her statistics saying that she's making up numbers, towards the end there was just no point to further continue the conversation because it was clear they were not going to agree.
'Moshe concluded their conversation writing, 'I wholeheartedly disagree, but I'm glad we're on the same page.'Despite all of the back and forth, the aunt and nephew decided it was best to agree on disagreeing and Moshe even told Bored Panda that his aunt means well and only has good intentions.'She's always been a big fan of mine and treated me well since I was a kid,' he shared.
I met Mark through a colleague and I realize I am so very lucky to have met him when I did.And of those Jews who are married, 44 percent are married to non-Jews.While I am no longer observant, I still identify strongly as Jewish.The attorney, who is from New York City, shared the entire text message exchange between him and his aunt, which started with her writing to him saying she would like to take him out to dinner to talk to him about his religion, and his plans for dating a non-Jewish girl to see if she could change his mind, at least on the latter point.According to a series of phone grabs he shared on Imgur, Moshe's aunt texted one day saying, 'Would like to get together and talk. 'He then explains to her that he's been atheist for four years and doesn't want to talk about this with her because he's enjoying his life with his girlfriend Cia who is a 'beautiful inside and outside non Jewish girl.'Moshe suggested they still go out to dinner to catch up but he's not interested in being questioned about his religion and doesn't want to be guilted about being with a non-Jewish woman.I'm not an expert on god and religion.'Just wanted to impress upon you how important it is to continue our Jewish heritage and tradition because we are Jews.'Moshe responded saying no matter who he marries, it is irrelevant to whether or not he continues Jewish tradition because he is atheist but the aunt was not having it.She replied, 'If you have kids with her they'll be non Jews and that will be the end of the Jewish lineage from you.'Moshe brings up the point that if he has kids and they want to be Jewish then they will have the option to convert but his aunt says why would they want to convert if they're not raised be a Jewish mom – there would be 'no basis to want to be Jewish.'In response to her Moshe had the perfect reply as he said, 'So they should instead have religion forced on them by blood even if they'll end up being atheist in observance anyway?Heard from my kids that you are involved with a non-Jewish girl, they saw it on Facebook, and would like to speak to you. His aunt was obviously not pleased by his response and wrote, 'Your choice to get involved with non Jews romantically will not bring you happiness in the long run.'Despite the aunt saying multiple times that she doesn't want to talk about this over text and she rather they meet for dinner to talk, Moshe insistently pushes her until they get into an all-out debate over religion.When Moshe pushes back at his aunt and starts questioning her she replies, 'Not looking to debate religion with anyone.This girl makes me happy and I believe she will continue to.We have a beautiful puppy together who further enhances that happiness.'The aunt says that even though he thinks he's happy with his current girlfriend, there are many Jewish girls out there that are just as beautiful and nice but he said that's not the point because he loves who he's with.
