Israel’s 2019 Election: Fixing The Israeli-American Jewish Rift

This double entendre may cut either way. So-called pundits are currently going to great lengths to misdirect and divert attention from the core, and sole, repairable problem. The Israeli-American Jewish Rift is not about the “Palestan Problem” since Israeli voters largely realize that, ignoring campaign rhetoric, whomever is elected isn’t expected to change that situation…

Gallup 2019 Last 2 Decades: American Jews NOT assimilating!

Non-Orthodox Tanakh-centric people are Jews, not seculars. Moreover, a 2019 Gallup poll shows that over the last 2 decades, membership of American Jews in synagogues has been stable while American Christians have dropped 20%. That’s not even predominantly “Orthodox” and it’s opposite to assimilation. Contrary to Fake News & RC, the glaring fact is: Diaspora…

Racism in Israel: When, And Why, Ha•lâkh•âh Went Dark

Racism as an example I started from the earliest times, checking to find when things first went awry. When I think about racism within Yi•sᵊr•â•eilꞋ (the nation), the facts lead me to dismiss the notion of inherent racism at the time of Mōsh•ëhꞋ, citing the eiꞋrëv rav. Likewise, , the facts lead me to dismiss…

The Root Of Innate Jewish Racism

The root of Israeli racism isn’t solely against Ethiopians, nor skin color, nor even Arabs. Israeli racism is Jewish racism on steroids. Even among Ashkenazim seculars, exclusive Jewish genetic chosenness supremacism (EJGCS) grows from a superstitious awe of a core European-Ashkenazi Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim (EAUK) root, which has persecuted, and continues to torment, non-Ashkenazim whom the…

Affiliating With The Nᵊtzâr•im

Website Updated, Streamlined Updated Website Pages For Jews & Non-Jews Neither Ta•na”khꞋ nor The Nᵊtzârim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyâhu provides any basis for separate membership, or certificate, of the Nᵊtzâr•imꞋ within the 1st-century C.E. Jewish community. Nor do I recall any other denominational documentation recorded in either Ta•lᵊmudꞋ. Thus, it would appear, neither should we…

R. Riskin’s Myopia; The Gaping Israeli-American Jewish Rift

Contrary to Nadav Shragai’s excessive admiration in Israel ha-Yom (https://bit.ly/2W92Wzl), the up-to-date reality is that there are a number — a growing number — of Torah scholars who have a significantly deeper understanding of essential aspects of U.S. Jewry impacting the current Orthodox-Non-Orthodox rift in global Jewry than Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin. This growing number…

American Jews: Self-Defined Sojourners In Modern-Day Egypt

America’s “Melting Pot” There is a key that illuminates the growing, and explosive, rift between “Blue” American liberal/socialist Jews and “Red” American Trump-conservative, capitalist Jews (see Yirmeyahu Ben-David. American Jewry’s & Israelis’ Misconception Of “The American View”. and Yishai Fleisher The clash of American liberal Jewry and Israeli nationalism). A sojourner isn’t the same as…

Israel’s Nation-State Law—The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good The modern state of Israel was conceived in answer to the socialist (Nazi) Shoah after WW-II, as a refuge-home for Jews globally; security against future threats of annihilation of Jews. Thus, the Nation-State Law, formally and officially defining Israel as such, is good. The archeological evidence found throughout Israel pre-dates Islam, Christianity—and Jews!…

Jewish & Israeli Anti-Arab Racism

Currently, there is much debate, and scathing criticism from Netanyah’s Likud party, in Israel over the “Blue & White” party’s possible alliance with Israeli Arab parties in a coalition following elections next month. From the Torah perspective, there is no longer any way to identify descendants of Amaleiq. There has never been any barrier to…

Israeli-Diaspora Rift: Orthodox Rabbinate Abuses Non-Orthodox Jews

The modern state of Yisraeil (Israel) was intended to be the ancestral home for Jews. But the Orthodox Rabbinate has disenfranchised all non-Orthodox—nearly 85% of world Jewry—as “goyim” unless they can racially prove their maternal genetic “Jewish” DNA. (This despite Israel-Jacob being born of the same mother as his twin, Esau–patriarch of about half of…
