Roady there are over 700 commandments passed from the G-D to Moshe. Some contradict the others.
So I dont know how to answer your question . I do believe the essence of the Hebrew bible is "do not do unto your neighbor what is hateful unto you".
I am honest in my dealings and I guard my reputation with my life.
I do not however seclude myself from the outside world as some ultra orthodox jews do according to some of those very commandments .
I do buisness with people of other religions and socialize with them.
I just remembered Shalom is part of the Hebrew language more so than part of Jewish religion.
I also understand your quote as our bible teaches us " Do unto others as you would have done unto you".
Also we have this "So if what I eat causes another believer to sin, I will never eat meat again as long as I live--for I don't want to cause another believer to stumble".
Both meaning the same as yours..
The meaning behind Shalom is, as you said, is peace or as I see it as have a good(peaceful) day. It is universally known, seen and heard. Heck I have even used it because I like the word.
You say you have a diverse client base, I also work in a diverse job with Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese, Jamaican and several other countries. Some of our cultural lifestyles are a direct contradiction to what they knew before, but in order for us to be productive we are able to accept our differences for the greater good.
I may be completely ignorant to how sensitive your client base is to something as simple as a Hebrew word , but I figured if they were that sensitive to it then they would never have contacted you in the first place. That or they will discontinue business as soon as they recognize your religion.
Going back to both your religious quotes and mine, it leads me to the fact that if you feel it is an issue then it is. If for no one else but you and you should make your decision based morally on that fact...
I am too wordy this week.. lol I need to go work out in the pasture this evening to get rid of some of this thinking energy..lol
