A writer for the Tablet poses this question, which he answers in his article:
I’m not interested here in defending the core atheist claim here – that territory has already been trod persuasively and in exhaustive depth. Instead, I want to address a question that I’m sure has vexed more than a few Tablet readers: are we still really Jewish once we give up our faith? And, if so, then in what sense?
What is good for the atheist Jewish goose is good for the Messianic Jewish gander!
