When positively reacting to the wedding invitation, we should be willing to step in the sent one from God his footsteps and should help to spread the Good News

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.

Walking the Walk or Stepping on the right Path

God has given the world His Word and Guidance for life, but everyone is free to follow it or not. It is not by doing good or doing bad that everything in life shall run like we would like it, or would go good or bad. We all know that “bad” things happen to “good” people, and no spiritual building can hold by pretending otherwise. It’s simply untrue that every well-lived life leads only to outwardly positive outcomes. It’s equally untrue that difficult circumstances prove that someone strayed from the path.

Jewish community in Iceland

The first observant Jew settled in Iceland in 1906, according to records. Fritz Heymann Nathan started one of Iceland’s most successful businesses at the time, Nathan & Olsen, a food distributor, after arriving from Denmark. He stayed for 11 years before returning there. It wasn’t until 1940 that the first Jewish congregation was established on… Lees verder Jewish community in Iceland

In Every Generation: The Return of Anti-Semitism – Pesah Day 1, 5779

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.

To remember

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.

living in a time in which many Jewish people feel kinship with Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, + Buddhist neighbors > our partners in faith

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.

open door = metaphor for seeking opportunities to collaborate with our neighbors for the common good.

  • Hate crimes against Jews are vastly over-represented; 13% of all hate crimes = anti-Semitic.
  • 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

The Modern Rabbi

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.

Gargoyles of Notre Dame

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…

Call to help others

When celebrating Passover we should count our blessings and be thankful that God was willing to be by His People and to guide all of those who are willing to believe in Him and praise Him. That gratitude we should share with others and we should be ready to witness about that salvation and hope which is given to us and the rest of the world.

Call to arms of the seder – remembering that you were a slave

We have to show ourselves and others that we understand the value of nuance and that we personally have come forth from Egyptian subjugation, freed by the Elohim from Egypt’s clutches

Jews have the Ultimate Support System

Bnei Yisroel as Am kadosh shall always be the most favoured or set-apart people of God, no matter that the Elohim provided now a means of others also to have their relationship with Him restored, by the ransom offering of the mashiach.

14-22 Nisan gives us time to read about how the HaShem took care of His People and provided also a solution for the goyim. All should come to recognise the Bore as their Father of fathers and God above all gods, making them pure and clean to come close to Him as His children.

To remember

how Ethan Katz looks on tefillah

  • With so many different mitzvos for us to be cognizant of + so many aveiros available for us to do = impossible to actively keep all of Hashem’s mitzvos without stumbling a few times
  • view aveiros as “stumbling” > instead believing that we’ve “fallen.”
  • we say same two words during Shemoneh Esrei > someich noflim => someich, “He supports,” noflim, “those who are (currently) falling.”
  • Satisfied, I continued my davening keeping this new way of thinking in mind.
  • a machlokes in the gemara in Kiddushin 36a on the pshat of the beginning of the pasuk in Devarim (14:1) “Banim atem l’Hashem Elokeichem,” (you are sons to Hashem, your God).
  • no matter what, bein kach ubein kach, we are always Hashem’s children!

Yirmiyahu (4:22)= “foolish sons.”

Devarim (32:20) “faithless sons.”

Yeshayahu (1:4)  “the seed of evildoers, destructive sons.”

Hoshea (2:1), pasuk > “instead of being told (by Hashem) “you are not My nation,” Hashem will call them b’nei Kel-Chai (sons of Living-God).”

  • gemara explains: granted when Jews are foolish = despite all shortcomings > still sons > not faithless > even when there is no faithfullness => faithless Jews = still called sons
  • pasuk > banim mashchisim = destructive sons

in our spiritual lives, in our lives striving to keep Hashem’s Torah + mitzvos, THERE IS NO BOTTOM.

Hashem never lets us hit the bottom because we are His children eternally

=> forever child of Hakadosh Boruch Hu.

Hashem brought geulah to the Jews in Mitzrayim because a parent is always there for his children

Tefillah Melodies

Before I start discussing my thoughts on tefillah, I want to quickly say that although I hope to consistently post, since these ideas are actual thoughts I have when davening that help me with my kavannah and not me being mamshich through tefillah as a limud, I will be posting ideas at random, with no real seder. Having said that, I hope one day I can really go through the siddur and learn it like a mentsch. Now on to my first official post.

“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

This quote, taken from a Life Alert commercial, reflects how many Jews, including myself at times, constantly feel. With so many different mitzvos for us to be cognizant of and so many aveiros available for us to do, it is impossible to actively keep all of Hashem’s mitzvos without stumbling a few times. The problem many of us face…

Mankind should know that people should make a choice and should have to come to a pure belief in line with God's Wishes and not according human doctrines. Our first priority should be to please God, but all should know that without faith and by keeping to human and heathen traditions it is impossible to please God.

The attitude of Christians to Jews

According to a recent Pew Review Western Europeans who identify as Christian are more likely than those who have no religious affiliation to express negative feelings about immigrants and religious minorities. At the begin period of the 21st century there are still a large group of Christians who also consider themselves to be the rightful heirs of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Looking at themselves as the sole legitimate heirs of the biblical promises because the Jews rejected and killed the Messiah.

This fighting world, Zionism and Israel #7

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.
