The Sabbath test and non-Jews

Postby delusional » Wed Jun 22, 2011 9:32 pm

In taking the Sabbath observers' administration of the LSAT a couple times, I saw a number of people there who did not appear to be Jewish. I had originally assumed that the main constituency for that test would be Jews. Are there religions other than Judaism which would preclude taking the LSAT on Saturday? I know that some Christians keep Saturday as the Sabbath, but would they also not write a test on Saturday? Or were the non-Jewish testers given some sort of makeup by LSAC? Or do I just need to expand my expectations of the Jewish appearance spectrum?

perhaps some people just prefer to take the test on a different day?

Aside from wearing some kind of prominent religious relic, how does somebody "not appear Jewish?"

Maybe OP is talking about blacks. But there are some Seventh Day Adventists who observe Sabbath.

People who are taking the Sabbath test for religious reasons need to get a letter from a religious figure attesting to their observance. Based on appearance, I didn't figure that those people would have done it - unless maybe they were Seventh Day Adventists or something. The other option was that they had some sort of glitch in their Saturday test, so LSAC let them sit the Sabbath one - but I don't think that would get done between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.

Well, there's a lot of different nuances. Many observant Jews wear yarmulkas. Many observant Jewish girls wear long skirts and wouldn't wear pants. Most Jews are not Black. Many observant Jews wouldn't have tattoos.

Of course, none of these are universal. Lots of observant Jews are Black, or don't wear yarmulkas, or do wear pants. Some observant Jews might have tattoos. But when you see 100 people who all supposedly don't write on Saturday, and there are eight Black people and none have yarmulkas, or a 5-6 of the 100 people have crosses, or a couple of them have tattoos, it made me wonder.

That's a pretty insignificant amount. Maybe these are other sabbath observers who aren't Jewish.

So we've all concluded that delusional ran into Sammy Davis, Jr., Drake, and Zoe & Lenny Kravitz.

I'm definitely taking the next Sabbath test.

Is the Sabbath test the same test as the one given on Saturday? Wouldn't that allow some pretty easy cheating? Or do they create an entirely different test altogether?

And yeah, Seventh Day Adventists.

There are black Jews who don't wear yarmulkes and other black Saturday Sabbath keepers, there are christian sects that observe the Saturday Sabbath, there are people who may observe certain tenets of a religion and not others, etc. More important question is why you care.

i'm guessing it's due to the fact that many conservative Jews would rather not mix with what they call "gentiles/goyim" in any activity if it can be helped.**
