Question
Who do certain Haredi Jews (Neturei Karta and the Satmar Hasidim) oppose the modern State of Israel? I would imagine religious Jews should be happy to be able to return to and pray in Israel, Jerusalem, and the Western Wall.

Question
My Birthright trip leader told us that, for religious reasons, he would not take private tours to the Temple Mount/Dome of the Rock. Why is that? That seems to be an opportunity to get closer to where the Beit Hamikdash once stood so wouldn't a Jewish person seize that opportunity if they could?

Question
What do you think is one thing that non-Jews believe about Jews that is often misinformed or flat out incorrect? I'm asking in strictly a religious sense rather than relating to Israel or the Palestinian conflict.

Question
OS 285 Dear Rabbi, Hi, I am attending a community college in Daytona Beach before I go to Berkeley, and I have a couple questions concerning the angle my humanities teacher takes. He states that there was no great Exodus out of Egypt for the Jews because archaeologists could not find trash in the desert enough for the "supposed" thousands of Jews migrating out from Egypt. He also states that the Jews were not slaves in Egypt. He admits to there being a small caste of Jews that were slaves, but not on the popular belief scale. I am the only Jew in class because he asked any Hebrew to raise their hand and mine was the only one that went up, so I stand alone when I ask him and question him. If you could give me any information about this I would feel better about the subject. These are only a few of the things my teacher has said that has made me anxious and on guard. Thank you.
