I am Jewish but not Orthodox. I do not follow all 613 commandments. I do not say all the prayers and I don’t keep completely kosher. Too often, I speak improper words and think improper thoughts.
My question is this: Am I doing any good at all? Do abbreviated prayers, selective mitzvahs and acknowledged Jewish identity reap any reward at all? Or, by being “Jewish Lite” is it the same as if I were completely non-observant?
