Friedman admits that he abandoned Judaism because "there wasn't any sense to it." I take my hat off to his honesty in admitting it. However, being Jewish myself, I am deeply amazed that a brilliant individual such as Friedman would arrive at such a conclusion. It seems that anything that does not have a dollar sign in front of it makes no sense to him. Perhaps he should enroll in a refresher course in the history of Judaism and the Jewish people.
