different between Jewish betrothal and modern engagement

I dont think youll find many Christians who know much about Jewish customs, esp marriage customs. I know Biblically a Jewish betrothal was very serious. It was a promise or covenant made that could not be broken without serious social and religious repercussions except in very specific circumstances. It was almost as good as actually being married, but not quite. Modern Jewish customs i have no idea how serious betrothal is. Certainly a modern Christian engagement is not particularly binding or important tho in past centuries it was.

It might be a fun job if i was twenty something and closer to their headquarters and didnt already have a nice, probably much better paying professional career with benefits. Twenty something passed me up LONG ago. Which isnt to say i didnt look into their hiring requirements just for fun. If i was twenty years younger and still trying to find my path in life it would be a perfect short term job. But im settled and happy and have almost eighteen years invested in the career i have. If i ever get downsized i might look into being a mod, tho. :)

Well I'm Jewish, so I think I can give you a better answer. A Jewish betrothal is something done under the 'chuppa' meaning during the actual ceremony. It is much more serious than regular engagements which is why it was moved up to the wedding day. Jews still engage the normal way too.
