Fun podcast. I feel the need to correct some of the misinformaton regarding Judaism, however.

The swaying back and forth that Aaron mentioned in not called “davening”…that is the Yiddish term for praying….it is called “shuckeling”. However, one is not required to “shuckle” when praying, some of the greatest Rabbis in history didn’t shuckle. It is just something that many Jews do while praying in order to intensify their concentration. Jews do stand, sit and even bow from the waist during prayer. Once a year, on Yom Kippur, we fully prostrate to the ground. There is no kneeling.
Ecclisiastes is not part of the Torah, really. It is part of Tanakh, which many might refer to as Torah, but nominally Torah refers to the 5 books of Moses and the Talmud only. The author of Ecc. is King Solomon. Carson said it is part of what is refered to as “wisdom writings”. I believe he is confusing this with another of King Solomon’s writings, “Proverbs”. Ecclisastes falls under the “Writings” segment of of Tanakh.

Absolutely his fault. He should feel really guilty about it.
