I strongly disagree with your opinion. I particularly disagree with the idea that religion, any religion, is a necessary force for morality. If something is good, it is good because it is good, not because this or that supernatural being (i.e. someone claiming to be its representative) declares it as good. If something is true, is unhealthy, is well-advised...ditto. When people do not develop their own internal moral compass, but rather rely on "sacred" texts and traditional rules to guide their actions, it means they are desensitized and ultimately incapable of accessing wisdom by the method of contemplation. This is the very definition of blind faith and it is dangerous. A person so programmed will even do something bad, wrong, cruel or "evil", if such action is seen to be encouraged by the particular doctrine they have pledged to uphold (or have been born into). The only "invisible presence" needed is the conscience that most humans are born with (not sociopaths, psychopaths etc.). But one must cultivate it. Religion stops people from doing this; instead they just do what they are told by the religious authority to which they have surrendered their will, their intelligence and their conscience. I see moral examples in individual acts of bravery, compassion and sacrifice. These are guiding lights and inspirations. I cannot grasp at all what you could possibly mean by declaring that Judaism, or any other religion, has the role of being a light to humanity. Sounds like more self-aggrandizing claptrap to me!
