In Judaism and Jeshuaism there have always been two opposite views on interfaith relationships. All groups know having a partnership with someone of another religious system or with a non-religious person makes life more difficult.
Those who are not so against intermarriage and would allow such contacts with people of other religious groups, do believe it can enrich both partners and families.

The way people feel about Israel have so much to do with interfaith. Also groups that are keen to be not mixed can take an adverse opinion of Zionists. Look for example to some Haredim.

That the non-Orthodox Jewish world in America now have extended interfaith families, and that they are taking the demographic lead, does not mean that would be to according to the mitzvot. What the opinion might be we always should remember that it is the Elohim Who touches and knows the heart and Who shall be the most righteous Judge.

More on Pew’s Jewish Americans in 2020

For generations, interfaith families who felt excluded, misunderstood, or disrespected by Jewish clergy or institutions, have found other homes. Some gravitated to Unitarian-Universalism, which draws on many religions. Some added Buddhism, or Sufism, or Paganism, to their spiritual practice. And for more than a quarter of a century now, interfaith families have been building their own dual-practice communities in which to honor both Judaism and Christianity.

But very few of these people with complex religious practices (and I have studied hundreds of them) stopped practicing Judaism altogether, or stopped calling themselves Jews.

The irony is that Jews who did stop practicing Judaism altogether are considered Jewish in the new Pew study of Jewish Americans in 2020, as long as they don’t claim a second religion. But if you claim two religions, you forfeit your right to have Pew consider you part of the…

The Modern Rabbi

I recently completed my fourteenth year as a rabbi, since I was ordained at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary in New York in 2007. As many of you know, I have been affiliated with the Conservative movement for my entire life.

The Jewish Theological Seminary of America

But you may not know that in 1994, when I was finishing my Master’s degree in chemical engineering at Texas A&M University, I applied to the rabbinical school at the Reform movement’s Hebrew Union College, at the urging of the Reform rabbi at the Texas A&M Hillel. When HUC rejected me, Rabbi Tarlow was incensed, and he called the chair of the admissions committee to find out why. He was told that the committee felt that I had difficulty seeing multiple sides to an issue.

Now, it may be that what they saw about me during the interview was engineering clarity: trying…

Intermarriage and Protecting the state of the Jewish and/or Jeshuaist family

Since childhood, we are taught ideal philosophies like we all are equal, one God, gender equality, secularism, brotherhood, etc. Moral books are full of such teachings. But when we grow up and get to know someone else whom we would like to take as a partner to go together through life it all becomes different, suddenly religion, culture, skin colour, genetic makeup, or country of origin matter a lot. In this article, we look at the result of an American survey and the way different Jewish branches handle the way of life and marriage of their people.

A Letter to the Ekklesia

From the onset, there have been real followers of the Nazarene master teacher. Centuries past and many false teachings entered Christendom, but in Christianity, several people kept to the True Biblical Words and kept worshipping only the One true God. Also in the Jewish community, there were people who came to see that Jeshua was the way to God and that he was the promised Messiah.

Today it has even become more important that those Jews who follow Jeshua as their Messiah should unit and feel strengthened by their unity all over the world.

With love from your Torah Observant Brothers and Sisters

My dearest brothers and sisters in Christ,

A mass exodus from man-made religions has been happening over the last few years, specifically since the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 prophecy in 2017, but much more frequently over the last few months, even weeks. Unfortunately, many of these once avid believers were subsequently led astray by various new age deceptions or have abandoned their faith all together. However, an ever-growing number of us took a different route- we all have a very similar testimony, in fact. More and more things that we were being taught at church started to contradict Scripture, and our pastors and religions avoided answering any questions that challenged their doctrines like the plague. Everyone online started constantly bickering over different doctrines and clashing over theologies. We all claim to serve the same God and love Jesus, but that’s…

What’s a Hebrew?

In the 19th and 20th century for several Jews it was to dangerous to speak Hebrew and between the 30ies and 40ies of the previous century, many Yews in Europe were brought up by non-Jewish people, hiding those kids from the Nazi’s. That made that several of those European Jews did not learn Hebrew, but luckily their foster parents respected their Jewishness and provide possibilities to hold their traditional feasts and prayermoments.
Whilst many do not speak Hebrew and or speak a little bit of Yiddish, we do find others who speak Hebrew but are not at all religious Jews. Therefore we should be very careful when we judge those Hebrew speaking non-religious Jews who live in Israel and do lots of things that are against the Torah and as such are an abomination in the eyes of the Elohim. Therefore saying “From our perspective, Hebrews are people who choose to leave the culture of idol worship in order to seek Truth. ” is giving a wrong idea about the present Hebrew speaking population, but also against the religious Jews who do not speak Hebrew, but have adopted the languages where their ancestors and they have been brought up in the previous years.

To remember

  • Abram’s genealogy goes back to a man named Eber, a great-grandson of Noah.
  • The designation of “Hebrew” refers to the fact that Abram descended from Eber and that he came from the “other side” (ever) of the Euphrates River.
  • term Hebrew = of “crossing over” = exemplified through Abram’s life’s journey <= no longer wanted to follow ways of idol-worshipping culture => crossed over to seek YAH with all his might.
  • modern-day connotation of a Hebrew > Hebrews =?= Jewish.

Who is a Jew?

Moshe’s Corner

Abram was born in the city of Ur in early Babylon, His father sold idols. We find that Abram’s genealogy goes back to a man named Eber, a great-grandson of Noah. The designation of “Hebrew” refers to the fact that Abram descended from Eber and that he came from the “other side” (ever) of the Euphrates River.

The term Hebrew takes on a meaning of “crossing over” which is exemplified through Abram’s life’s journey. He was a man who no longer wanted to follow the ways of an idol-worshipping culture. Instead, he was a person who crossed over to seek YAH with all his might. Read Genesis 14:3

The modern-day connotation of a Hebrew is that Hebrews are Jewish. But as can be found in Scripture, Abram is not so restricted. Instead, Abram becomes Abraham a father of many nations and believers in a Living Elohiym.

From our perspective, Hebrews…

Seventy-five years ago on January 27

An estimated 1.3 million people were sent to Auschwitz, and 1.1 million died there including 960,000 Jews. When 75 years  ago,  the  100th  and  322nd  divisions  of  the  Soviet  Army’s “1st Ukrainian  Front”  reached  the  Nazi  concentration  and  extermination  camp  of  Auschwitz-Birkenau they could not believe their eyes. Lots more soldiers came to see similar horror places and being disgusted by that what seemed inhuman many became convinced the whole world should know about this and should make sure this could never happen again.

Is it possible to be a Jew for Christ

From the Hebrew Scriptures, including the Talmud we can learn that the Chosen People or Israel is eternal, so the bond with them is irreversible, unbreakable and eternal, once a Jew always a Jew. As a Jew following the Jewish rebbe Jeshua should not mean that one has to give up the Jewishness, even better being a follower of the sent one of God one can become even closer to God.
