“Ein Banu Ma’asim”
Why do we say “ayn banu maasim” (we have no deeds), when, in actuality, if you are shomer mitzvos, then of course you have deeds. It sounds very christian–if we wake up, put on tefillin, keep the mitzvos, etc, then….we DO have maasim–they may not be up to our potential, but, to say they are nothing???
I dont get it.
