…he meaning of this label until I was offered an interpretation during one of my conversion classes. To be chosen was not characterized by an elitist belief, but by the understanding that one is chosen to suffer. Who would choose to suffer? Each year, roughly 3,000 believers volunteer to be chosen and are welcomed into the tribe. I was one of them.

Even I did misunderstand the interpretation of chosen forav very long time and that kept me from grasping the truth and essence of Judaism.Now that I talk of spirituality and non-duality, I use Judaism teachings often to imply the true meaning of misrepresented words like chosen, cross and suffering.
