About Goyim: Notes on Rabbi Micha Berger's Religious Dilemma
There is significant follow up on the issues at Reb Micha's original post,
Important points I added are:
1. I forgot to mention that a goy can only bring a Korban Olah, not a Shelamim. This is very much linked, and really is a fundamental source, for the dichotomy I presented.
2. I was myself somewhat guilty of imprecision in terminology. "Taharah" as I meant it is not Halachic Taharah, of course. Rather, it is the Nekiyus, Perishus and, ultimately the Taharah of the Mesillas Yesharim. That is the highest level open to a goy. From the Chassidus of the Mesillas Yesharim and beyond is only available to Jews.
