The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing. In these darker days many may feel depressed or become confronted with the passing away of people or beloved animals. Though we do have 8 days to remember how light is given by God and how the temple, His House, was restored.
Cette année, Pessa’h Chéni est observé le dimanche 19 mai 2019 Un an après l’Exode d’Égypte, D.ieu ordonna aux Enfants d’Israël d’offrir le sacrifice pascal l’après-midi du 14 Nisan et de le consommer ce soir-là, grillé au feu et accompagné de Matsa et d’herbes amères, comme ils l’avaient fait un an auparavant juste avant de… Lees verder Pessa’h Chéni 14 Iyar 5779 – Dimanche 19 mai 2019
The first observant Jew settled in Iceland in 1906, according to records.

These days of the Passover festival are ideal to show to the world how we all together should go for a peaceful world where everybody, whatever their faith can live together and are prepared to reach out a helping hand when needed.
burning of Notre Dame de Paris = fitting metaphor for current moment, when religious engagement is on the decline in the West, + order of the Old World continues to slip away.
Religious differences historically yielded enmity + outright hatred between people of different faiths
blood libel accusations > Jews in medieval Europe falsely accused of killing Christian children to use their blood for making matzah, often emerged around this time of year.
open the door “for Elijah” during seder = attempt to show non-Jewish neighbors > are not doing anything nefarious.

- White supremacists focus fighting the “white genocide,” “engineered by Jews” + the web to foment horrible ideas about Jews.
- Anti-Semitism = evident on the left and the right of political spectrum
It was indeed tragic to watch Notre Dame de Paris on fire last week, to ache for the loss of a building so deeply connected to the history of Paris and Europe, to lament the destruction of antiquities and works of art. But the burning of Notre Dame is, I am sorry to report, a fitting metaphor for our current moment, when religious engagement is on the decline in the West, and the order of the Old World continues to slip away.
It is notable to me that we are living in a time in which many Jewish people feel kinship with our Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and Buddhist neighbors, our partners in faith; consider the interfaith cooperation that has happened here in Pittsburgh in the wake of the 18th of Heshvan (the Hebrew date of Oct. 27th, 2018) – the local Muslim community fundraising…

Looking at ge’ulah or redemption, as an echo of yetzi’at Mitzraim. The Book of books speaking about redemption from the past but also speaking about a redemption, which can come in different forms and quantities, in the future.
Jeshua asks his followers to repent and offered himself as a ransom to liberate us from the curse of death. 14 Nisan may than be the opening of Hag ha-Herut or The Holiday of Freedom.
People should know there is a big difference between trinitarian "Jews for Jesus" and those Jews who believe in Jeshua as their Messiah but who worship the Only One True God of Israel.
Adam and Eve got many children and their children also gave birth to several children, so that the world was populated as God had told them.
Presenting a website in defence of Non-Trinitarian groups and people who prefer to keep on Biblical doctrines and loving the Most High Only Supreme Highest Being, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah.
In this last chapter on Zionism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism, Anti-Christianism we close by looking at the grown group who does not come directly from the ancient Hebrews and look at the fact that to come to a good solution we have to work at a genuine internationalism, and genuine international solidarity, with the knowledge that there can be no meaningful working together of ordinary people wherever tribalism or communalism dominates.
There are people who find occupation is the sheer existence of Israel and her people. The many actions we see Israel undertaking now may indicate that lots of people in Israel either do not know or do not want to know about God His Plan and His Way of doing things or (worse) do not currently know Him.
There are people who find that Israel is The Jewish State, and as such is founded upon the teachings, traditions, and precepts of Judaism, the very foundation of which is War With Gentildom. Virtually every religious feast of importance – from Passover to Purim to Hanukkah–celebrates the destruction of Gentiledom. The 5 ‘books of Moses’ comprising… Lees verder This fighting world, Zionism and Israel #5
In this 100th post on Jeshuaists we look at the 11th - 16th century barbarism by the Roman Catholic church and the 21st century where we can see a dramatic increase of wars and rumors of wars, just as Jesus predicted as well as large conflicts, such as Ezekiel’s war of Gog or the Psalm 83 war and the Great War we shall soon have to face.
Israel is central to the identity of the overwhelming majority of Jews not just in Britain, but all over the world. The reason is because it is central to Judaism. This doesn’t mean that all Jews agree with everything that the Israeli government does. But even if a Jew or non-Jew does agree with an Israeli government policy which is unpopular abroad, this doesn’t make it legitimate to unleash hatred against them.
After World War II the children which were placed in Catholic families often found no Jewish families to take care for them or to bring them up in Jewish traditions. Most of them even did not have the opportunity to learn Hebrew and got estranged from Jewish traditions. They married and got children who started to wonder about their ancestors. Several of them also wanted to go back to the Jewish culture and found stronger bounds with Jewish religion, whilst others wanted to keep their faith in the Messiah, but did not want to be counted under the trinitarian Christians.
