I am a Catholic Jew meaning that I am a Catholic convert from Judaism. I had an Orthodox Bris as a Jewish Child (mother is Jewish). So, despite the fact that I go to Mass and am orthodox to all of the Catholic holidays, traditions and theology, I still long for some of my Jewish holidays and partake in them.
For example, I partake in the Passover holiday (which augments nicely with the Easter Christian celebration). I also partake in Chanukah, which usually occurs around Christmas time.
I have been told by many Catholics that partaking in the Jewish holidays makes me apostate to Roman Catholicism. I question that notion and wonder if that is really true.
Further, I long to go to the high holiday services at the local Othrodox schul (I am a member of our local RC Chruch) but am leary to attend these services because it is questionable if that is within the purview of Christianity.
I ask if you think that is true - - - am I apostate in celebrating the Jewish holidays? Would I be apostate to Roman Catholicism to attend high holiday services at the local Synagogue?
Did Jesus not attend all of these same services in his time?
