  • Im pretty sure most Jews (who follow the religion) do not condone tattoos but Im not sure about body peircings. I have a great friend who is a practicing orhtodox Jew and she and her four daughters all have their ears peirced and wear jewelry. However there are many branches of judaism.. some more extreme, if you will, that may be against body peircings as well, like hasidic jews for example..So Im going to gues this depends on the Jew.

    I could be mistaken though, anyone can feel free to correct me.. Just giving my two cents based on my Jewish friend :)

  • well if you can get piercings, then you can get tattoos. Isn't the same verse condemning the practice of both?
    Also jews HAVE NEVER taught that Jewellery was a sin? Doesn't the story of the Isrealites make jewellery sinful or the story of Jacob and his family preparing to go to Bethel? What about jewellery as a symbol for backsliding and apostacy?

  • What does the bible say? Does it anywhere say we can't have jewellery?
