David, I understand this group is relatively young, but I have been waiting for years – more than a decade – for this to occur.
My impression is that most of the members were non-observant Jews prior to converting to Catholicism, and so they assume we are all on-board with this non-observance.
It is time for AHC to acknowledge that there are Jewish Catholics who observe Jewish laws and traditions. We are here, too. We seek a place in the community.
When the community purposefully, knowingly, sets up all meetings on Shabbat and Tom Tov in such a fashion that a portion of the community cannot attend – well, it makes us wonder if we are wanted at all.
