INTRODUCTION:

The purpose of this page is to document information relative to the religion of Judaism.

I am becoming increasing concerned that Judaism is being confused with the instructions (Torah) given to us on Mount Sinai.  It seems that the Hebraic faith experienced by Abraham is being renamed to Judaism.  I do not think Scripture supports this.  Abraham had 12 sons and 1 daughter.  It is these 12 tribes that represent 'the children of Israel' and not just the single tribe of Judah which has become the focus of Judaism.

For example, I offer the following quote from the article "History Crash Course #54: The Reform Movement" by Rabbi Ken Spiro, "While the ideological differences between Orthodox and Reform remain enormous, these changes clearly reflect the modern Reforms Movement's recognition of what has shown to be a historically proven reality: What has kept Jews Jewish for thousands of years is a commitment to Judaism ? its study, observance, and the primacy of Judaism as a central component of every Jew's identity."

My understanding of YHWH's instructions is that HE is to be the focus of mankind and not a man made institution called Judaism.

Mizrahi Jews or Mizrahiyim

(Hebrew: Modern Mizrahiyyim Tiberian Mizrahiyyîm ; "Easterners"), also referred to as Adot HaMizrach (Communities of the East; Mizrahi Hebrew: Adot(h) Ha(m)Mizra?) are Jews descended from the Jewish communities of the Middle East, North Africa and the Caucasus. The term Mizrahi is used in Israel in the language of politics, media and some social scientists for Jews from the Arab world and adjacent, primarily Muslim-majority countries. This includes Jews from Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kurdish areas, the eastern Caucasus, India, Northern and Eastern Sudan and Ethiopia. Sometimes, Sephardi Jews such as Jews from Morocco, Algeria, or Turkey are erroneously grouped into the Mizrahi category for some historical reasons.

Despite their heterogeneous origins, Mizrahi Jews generally practice rites identical or similar to traditional Sephardic Judaism, although with some differences among the minhagim of the particular communities. This has resulted in a conflation of terms, particularly in Israel, and in religious usage, where "Sephardi" is used in a broad sense to include Mizrahi Jews as well as Sephardim proper. Indeed, from the point of view of the official Israeli rabbinate, the Mizrahi rabbis in Israel are under the jurisdiction of the Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel who, in most cases, is a Mizrahi Jew. Today they make up more than half of Israel's Jewish population, but before the mass immigration of 1,000,000 mostly Ashkenazi immigrants from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s they made up over 70% of Israel's Jewish population.

Sephardim

Jews who are the descendants of those who spent the last several hundred years of the exile in Moslem cultures.  While the term Sephardi is often used to categorize all Jews who came from the Middle East/Moslem world, the term is not really accurate.  Many of these communities have little or no connection historically with the Jews of Spain i.e. Persian Jews, Yemenite Jews etc.  The more accurate term would be Edot HaMizrach or "communities of the East" which would cover all non-Ashkenazi Jewish communities.

Yemenite Jews

(Hebrew: Standard Temanim Tiberian Têmanîm; singular, Standard Temani Tiberian Têmanî) are those Jews who live, or whose recent ancestors lived, in Yemen (Standard Teman Tiberian Têman; "far south"). Between June 1949 and September 1950, the overwhelming majority of Yemen's Jewish population was transported to Israel in Operation Magic Carpet. Most Yemenite Jews now live in Israel, with some others in the United States, and fewer elsewhere. Only a handful remain in Yemen, mostly elderly.

Yemenite Jews have a unique religious tradition that marks them out as separate from Ashkenazi, Sephardi and other Jewish groups. It is debatable whether they should be described as "Mizrahi Jews", as most other Mizrahi groups have over the last few centuries undergone a process of total or partial assimilation to Sephardic culture and liturgy. (While the Shami sub-group of Yemenite Jews did adopt a Sephardic-influenced rite, this was for theological reasons and did not reflect a demographic or cultural shift.)

The day after Rosh Hashanah marks the Fast of Gedalia, one of the "minor fast days" in the Jewish calendar year. The fast begins in the early morning at dawn, and ends in the evening at dusk.  This holiday commemorates a story of Jews killing other Jews on the third (3rd) of Tishrei.

Another article showing the falsehood behind Hanukkah and how it is in violation of Torah.

While the author tries to 'soft shoe' the fact that the alleged 'miracle of the oil' is untrue it casts doubt on the rest of the story and certainly the interepretations of the meaning.

MY NOTES FROM A FACEBOOK POST

John 10:22-23 does not state that the Messiah went up for the feast but rather that he was on Solomon's porch, in Jerusalem, DURING the feast. This is consistant across 7 versions of Scripture that I checked. (References provided upon request.)

I will 'borrow' a passage I read recently on a 'Nazarene Israel' website.

"I have learned the hard way not to assume things when reading Scripture, as Scripture is sometimes written in ways that conceal the true meaning. Sometimes a passage can seem like it means something else, in order to keep the true meaning 'sealed up' for a later time. (Shaul's writings are an excellent example of this.)  If we read Yochanan (John) 10:22-23 carefully, it does not say that Yeshua 'went up' for Hanukkah like one would 'go up' for a pilgrimage feast. Rather, it only says that Yeshua was 'in' Jerusalem at that time.

The question we have to ask ourselves is, "Is it possible that Yeshua had 'gone up' to Jerusalem for Sukkot, and had never left it...and that He just happened to still be there when the Feast of Dedication took place?" If the answer to this question is, "Yes, it is possible," then we cannot assume that Yeshua 'went up' to celebrate Hanukkah (as a pilgrimage festival). He may very well have already been there, simply because He had not left. Because Scripture does not say that Yeshua 'went up' for Hanukkah, we have no reason whatsoever not simply to default to YHWH's Instructions, which tell us very clearly not to add to His Torah.

I do understand that the Maccabees were heroes. I also understand that they were valiant men of battle, and that they suffered great hardships. However, why would we institute a national holiday out of their re-dedication of the Temple, when we did not make a national holiday out of the dedication of the Tabernacle, or the dedication of the First Temple?

Israel got in big trouble with the Golden Calf; and our forefathers got kicked out of the Land of Israel for making their own festival days. When the Third Temple is built, shall we make a national holiday of that as well? If so, then where will the 'adding to YHWH's words' stop?  Just because something is recorded in Scripture does not mean we can do it. Because King David killed Uriah, does that mean we get to also? (I mean no respect to the righteous King David.) Just because Hosea took a harlot, does that mean we should? (I mean no disrespect to Hosea, or even Gomer.)  Scripture is unique among all of the histories of the world in that it records our people's blemishes, as well as our successes. So just because something is written in Scripture is not a good reason that we should do it."

The Judaic website I frequent loves to dramatize how the Jewish race would have been wiped off the face of the earth if the Maccabees had failed. This statement contradicts Jeremiah 31:36-37. The children of Israel and the Hebrew people aren't going anywhere and the only danger they face is self induced. If we simply repent and return to worshipping the one true Eloha with ALL our heart and ALL our might and ALL our soul, HE will protect us and we will live in peace.

 

KEVER RACHEL'S YARTZEIT:

Jews observe a day dedicated to Rachel mourning for the loss of her children.

 

LAG B'OMER:

The 18th of Iyar, April 28, 2013 is likely to draw close to a quarter of a million people to the tiny northern Israeli village of Meron, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai’s final resting place. It is a 24-hour spiritual festival with music, dancing, intense prayers, and a teeming street bazaar where the latest edition of the Zohar (the core text of Jewish mysticism) are raucously hawked alongside pictures of tzaddikim (righteous rabbis), hand-shaped amulets, and colored scarves. Scores of three year olds are there for their first haircut, which will take place in the presence of their family and the tens of thousands of Jews of all stripes and colors who throng to Rabbi Shimon.

This all takes place in the midst of Sefirat HaOmer, the 50-day count up between Passover and Shavuot. This time period is accompanied by laws that require a degree of mourning. No weddings. No music. The mourning is a reminder of the terrible death of Rabbi Akiva’s 24,000 students who all passed on during this time period.

 

PURIM:

Hide and Seek with God  (WWW.AISH.COM)  (2013/0224)

A classic example of Rabbinic excessive interpretation in the Talmud.  "The Talmud (Hullin 139b) asks if Queen Esther is ever hinted at or alluded to in the Torah. The Sages answer that she is hinted at in the verse where God says, 'I will surely hide [My Face from them]' (Deut. 31:18). The Hebrew for 'I will surely hide' is haster astir, which contains the letters of the name 'Esther.' "

ROSH HASHANAH:

ROSH HASHANAH  (HTTP://ANTIPAS.NET)  (2012/0826)

An almost textbook example of how badly the Jewish religion has distorted and changed YHWH's feast day of Yom Teruah.  NOWHWERE in scripture is the term Rosh Hashanah used to describe the events on the first (1st) day of the seventh (7th) moon.

Hiding from God  (WWW.AISH.COM)  (2012/0916)

Another fine example of how badly the Jewish religion has distorted and changed YHWH's feast day of Yom Teruah.  In this fable, they even make up a story about Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden.

The overarching theme of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is "change:" to change from what we were before and to become new individuals.  (WWW.AISH.COM)  (2012/0917)

TESHUVA:

Teshuva literally means "return." When we "do teshuva," we examine our ways, identify those areas where we are losing ground, and "return" to our own previous state of spiritual purity.  And in the process, we "return" to our connection with the Almighty as well.

"The new analysis shows that Jewish ancestry reflects a mosaic of genetic sources.

Moreover, while the DNA studies have confirmed the close genetic interrelatedness of many Jewish communities, they have also confirmed what many suspected all along: Jews do not constitute a single group distinct from all others. Rather, modern Jews exhibit a diversity of genetic profiles, some reflective of their Semitic/Mediterranean ancestry, but others suggesting an origin in European and Central Asian groups. The blending of European, Semitic, Central Asian and Mediterranean heritage over the centuries has led to today’s Jewish populations."

"The Jews resettled in many distant lands, even as far as China. This work, however, focuses specifically on the Ashkenazi Jewish experience. Jews were subdivided into groups depending on where they resettled. Ashkenazi Jews are the Jews of France, Germany, and Eastern Europe. Sephardic Jews are the Jews of Spain, Portugal and North Africa. Mizrachi/Oriental Jews are the Jews of the Middle East. Certain Jewish communities do not fit into these distinctive groupings – in particular, the Falasha Jews of Ethiopia and the Chinese Jews."

"The Cohanim study was widely misinterpreted by the public as indicating that all Jews were in haplogroup J and had the CMH. Furthermore, many non-Jews in haplogroup J mistakenly believed that they must have some Jewish ancestry hidden in their past to explain their DNA results. As it turned out, most non-Jews were in subgroup J2 rather than J1 (Semino et al. 2004). Interestingly, Jews were later found to have as much J2 ancestry as J1."

"However, it would soon become very clear that Jewish DNA was much more complicated than was presented by the media in their reporting of the Cohanim data. And Jewish Khazarian ancestry would come to the public’s attention yet again when another DNA study was conducted, this time on the Jewish priestly group known as the Levites."

"Dienekes (2004) also wrote that he found the continued silence of researchers about the presence of haplogroup Q among Ashkenazim "puzzling.""

Pg 22 Par d

"Haplogroup Q is found in high frequencies in only a few regions of the world. Native American’s possess very high percentages of Q, particularly a sub-group known as “Q3” (Zegura et al. 2004). But haplogroup Q did not originate among the Native Americans, nor did this population obtain their Q ancestry from Jewish or Scandinavian ancestors. As previously noted by Faux, its origins probably lie somewhere in northern Eurasia, in Siberia or the Altai, where Q continues to be a common Y chromosome haplogroup. It is from this group after migration to the New World that Native American Haplogroup Q3 originated."

Pg 25 Par c

"The investigation of the genetic relationship among three Jewish communities revealed that Kurdish and Sephardic Jews were indistinguishable from one another, whereas both differed slightly, yet significantly, from Ashkenazi Jews. The differences among Ashkenazim may be a result of low-level gene flow from European populations and /or genetic drift during isolation…Jews were found to be more closely related to groups in the north of the Fertile Crescent (Kurds, Turks, and Armenians) than to their Arab neighbors. (Nebel et al. 2001)"

Pg 26 Par g

"Such prohibitions did not prevent such sexual contact among Christians and Jews; nor did it prevent Christians from converting to Judaism, individually and in groups, though it was probably much more common for Jews to convert or simply leave the Jewish community, given the significant oppression they faced in Europe. The word "proselyte" originally designated a Greek person who had converted to Judaism, indicating that conversion among Greek populations must have been common enough at one time to have led to the creation of this descriptive word."

Pg 26 Par h

"Frankly, the fact that Jews have substantial European ancestry is obvious to most onlookers – many Jews look like Europeans. The question for DNA researchers was: How much of that European appearance actually translates into European genetic ancestry?"

This paper seems to lack verifiable facts.  The author seems more concerned with defending the findings of his book.  Interesting to note that he mentions his "population genetics guru" but does not mention who this person is.
