Tampa, FL – 25 year old Rachel Levin, of Shoresh David Messianic Synagogue, recently posted a Facebook update exclaiming how glad she was to feel zero pressure to find a Messianic spouse. She plans to find a nice Christian boy someday and is so grateful that she is free to do just that.
“I’m so thankful that I’m part of a community that doesn’t care at all who or when I marry,” the Facebook post stated. “Nobody will ever try to set me up with someone or get upset when I find a boyfriend who isn’t Messianic. Especially the old Bubbes in my congregation, and there are certainly a lot of them. I can get married to someone who has never even met a Jewish person before and eats ham and has a Christmas tree and doesn’t even want our children to be Jewish and it will be okay, because nobody will stick their nose in our business. I am just so blessed. Thank you to the entire Messianic Community for never trying to find me a spouse at a conference or telling me you have a friend who has a friend who knows someone Messianic who would be a great husband for me. Just thank you for not caring at all who I wind up with. Just thank you.”
Rachel is just one of many young Messianics who will never have to worry about being set up with someone just because they’re Messianic, because that’s not how we play in Messianic Judaism. We are all free to marry whomever we want and there is no pressure to find a spouse ASAP. Thank you, Messianic culture, for a pressure free love life, or lack thereof. You are the best.
