Jews should be exemplary. This rules out just joining other religions and blurring the differences between us and them. It’s like the teacher standing in the middle of the class and saying, Call me Chris.
Further, it is a lie that not preventing death is always against Jewish Law. The Talmud already admits that sometimes death is to be preferred. Not in the same way as Atheist European counties have legislated based on human autonomy going before everything else. But in Israeli hospitals, there often is a hands-off approach to patients in a terrible state — with the backing of the rabbis. Besides, the criteria for death (when one can pull the plug) are different (and highly complicated) for Jewish Law than for other beliefs or law systems. Their call upon medical personnel to listen to their conscience is outright stupid. People mercy-kill when they can’t bear to watch it any longer, not for being amoral monsters.
This is not different from Monotheist religions being against abortion but the way the Rabbis rule is often very different from in other religions.
Same with homosexuality, which is deeply forbidden in all major Monotheistic religions but the Jewish approach again differs.
Just joining other Monotheists against Atheists makes Jews redundant.
And then to voluntarily convene in the Vatican and not in Jerusalem is a shaming of G^d we haven’t seen yet.
It should be noted that no group in Israel follows the chief rabbis:
Self-perceived non-religious Jews don’t follow them.
Reform and Conservative Jews don’t follow them.
Modern-Orthodox Jews don’t follow them.
National-Religious Jews don’t follow them.
Ultra-Orthodox Jews don’t follow them.
Non-Ashkenazi Jews don’t follow them.
They each have their own spiritual leaders and the chief rabbis are not.
A good reason to finally fire and not replace them. Today.
