Others might be sitting shiva (mourning) over the eight Jewish self-haters who recently walked out of Birthright programs in Israel to offer support and comfort for those in a Arab Muslim universe who conflict Israel. But we am excellent with it.
It is prolonged overdue for Israelis and a rest of American Jews to arise adult to a difficulty that Reform Judaism brought about in America. They deserted Torah. They abadoned Jewish tradition. They finished a new sacrament out of a Democrat Party magnanimous height with Bernie Sanders as one of their Chief Rabbis. And they have reaped exactly what they have sown. The non-Orthodox Jews (Reform Jews, Conaservative Jews) now have a 72 percent intermarriage rate. Most intermarriages are between a Jewish masculine and a non-Jewish female, so most of their grandchildren are not Jewish. To be sure, a Reform grandparents are Jewish. The Reform halves of a intermarriage are Jewish. They always will be Jewish. But the grandchildren are not Jewish.
The intermarrieds and their rich relatives have paid their Reform rabbis to call their non-Jewish grandchildren “Jewish.” And in America “money talks” — even if it can't review Hebrew. The Reform rabbis themselves need to announce those new non-Jewish grandchildren as “Jewish” because, otherwise, their temples, that are upheld by a revolving doorway of bar/bat mitzvah enrollments, will tighten down. The approach it works in America is that non-Orthodox families join a Reform church when their child becomes eleven. The child is enrolled in a Hebrew School, a Reform School. For a subsequent dual years a child learns what he or she learns — roughly nothing. (Just lay with a connoisseur of a Reform Bar/Bat Mitzvah “education,” and ask for yourselves. But be gentle. They are children.)
To enroll a child, a relatives contingency compensate unequivocally costly fee for a Reform School. Moreover, to be authorised to compensate a enrollment tuition, a relatives initial contingency compensate a $1000 or $2000 — or many some-more — annual membership and building-fund comment to a Reform temple. This income comes into a temple’s coffers reliably for dual years. Thereafter, after a child or lady is “b’nei-mitzva’d,” a family immediately drops membership and pulls a child out of a Reform school, so no some-more tuition, no some-more membership, no some-more building fund.
The reason that Reform temples can means that kind of dizzying turnover is that there always is a new up-and-coming eleven-year-old child with family to take a place of a drop-outs. For a century, that new deputy child was Jewish. But currently he or she just-as-typically is not Jewish. However,if a Reform church tells a Revolving-Door-Replacement that they are not Jewish, then a whole Reform church financial indication collapses. So Reform rabbis alien into Judaism one of America’s many vaunted and quick traditions: The Ponzi Scheme. You keep a thing relocating by recycling and personification around with a bottom line and a manners when a good income is gone. In a box here, a bottom line is not many — usually Judaism and a perpetuity of a Jewish People.
Most Israelis have no thought what has happened to American Jewry. They consider this is a “World of Our Fathers,” that America’s non-Orthodox Jews still shower their English with Yiddishisms, still quick on Yom Kippur, never would eat bread on Passover, and base for Sandy Koufax. Well, those days are over — even as reflected in how a few Jewish ball players currently play on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
There are now dual Jewries in America: those who are Jewish and those who are the non-Jewish children of non-Jewish mothers (whether a Moms never converted or underwent conversions that have no halakhic currency). With a 72 percent intermarriage rate among non-Orthodox Jews — and a rate keeps rising — a separate is perceptible and is flourishing wider, wiht no finish in sight. The outcome is that non-Orthodox Jews indeed are disappearing, while Orthodx numbers are increasing. Strange as it might sound, a many reputable demographic projections design a infancy of Jews in Greater New York to The children of a non-Orthodox have been taught low devotion to a Democrat Party and a magnanimous agenda. There is zero else to learn them about — exept a Holocaust. There is no Torah. No Talmud. You can't learn them Shabbat, kashrut, tefillin…
be Orthodox in a few deacdes, wtih a rest of American Jewry following.
In such a pell-mell culture, a children of a non-Orthodox have been taught low devotion to a Democrat Party and a magnanimous agenda. There is zero else to learn them about — exept a Holocaust. There is no Torah. No Talmud. You can't learn them Shabbat, kashrut, tefillin. They can't even pronounce “Shmini Atzeret.” No Rashi. No Ibn Ezra. No Tosafot. Nor do they know of Ben Gurion. No Jabotinsky. No Rabin. No Begin. No Achad Ha’am. No Rav Kook. No Moshe Hess. Not even Ber Borochov.
They know nothing about Ziomism. If they take a college march on Zionism, contingency are that their highbrow is an anti-Israel Arab or an equally pernicious Jew who attacks and blames Israel for everything.
The usually thing “Jewish” they have left to learn these immature people is that Hitler murdered 6 million Jews — so therefore they should be Jewish. Nor have their ever listened of Emil Fackenheim, who during slightest could give piece to that theory. So: (i) Hitler murdered 6 million Jews, so we need to be Jewish; and (ii) Don’t be Nazis.
Would that inspire you to be Jewish? Would we dump that one on your kids?
Thnk about it this way: Do we have a crony who always relates to we his tales of woe? How life cheated him and always keeps cheating him? How he never gets a break? How all his life is definitely miserable? Everyone knows some perpetual-complainer like that. It is a amicable pathology, and some people even like to have one crony like that in their circle, if usually to assure themselves that their possess lives are not as bad as they seem.
Well, we empathize with that friend. You listen empathetically, whine compassionately. You pat him on a shoulder and encourage him. But would we wish to live a life like his? Does his story enthuse we to change your concentration and to be he?
And that is what these non-Orthodox American Jews have finished to their Jewish kids, with so many among a subsequent generation-in-line not even Jewish. They have reared kids who currently know so small about Israel and Zionism that they indeed can't tell a disproportion between a Jewish essence in hazard on a Gaza front in Sderot, confronting kite fires and knife-wielding tunnel-dwellers who dream of trenchant by a limit and slaughtering all Jews they can strech — and a murderers with a knives and a blood-thirst in their eyes. These naifs indeed can't tell a disproportion between a determined murderes and a dictated virtims.
So they form J Street — that is funded by George Soros — and “IfNotNow” and “Bend a Arc” (led by a lady who danced during a sex club to acquire income until dual of her lesbian congregation invited her one night to their home) and “Jewish Voice for Peace” (funded by associates of Arabs clinging to destroying Israel). That is what they are. Now they are going to Conservative Judaism Camp Ramah summer camps and training Camp Ramah campers and stay staff to see a universe a approach they do, with censure for Israel. Israel — and always Israel — to blame. “Shall we be a Nazis?”
And now a same poisonous genocide that poisons American immature people in these non-Orthodox venues is “coming to a museum nearby you” in Israel. Surprised? Why? They do not caring one mote either women or Reform Jews can have their possess place during a Kotel. American Jews do not caring about that emanate during all. Go to a thousand American Jews and ask them: “Should Reform Jews have equal entrance to a Wall?”
First, they will answer: “Huh?”
Then they will figure: “Well, uh, sure. Why not? Everyone should have equal entrance to everything. Sure. Put me down as a ‘Yes’ for equality. With autocracy and probity for all.”
And afterwards they will say: “Wait a minute! Did we contend ‘Wall’? You meant like Trump’s Wall? we am opposite it. Change that: put me down as ‘No.’ we am opposite any bid by Israel to Build That Wall.”
In other words, no one cares here. Two-thirds of American Millennials never heard of Auschwitz. You consider they caring either some women with rainbow skullaps have entrance to urge to an Asherah tree during a Western Wall? But a few of these Millennials will travel out of a Birthright program.
So greatfully let them walk. Make certain that, given they have pulled out of their giveaway all-expenses-paid trip, they repay one of my favorite people in a world, Sheldon Adelson, and all a other donors whose good moral income finished it probable for those freeloaders to get to Israel. And afterwards let them have a time of their lives in Ramallah or wherever they wish to go in Khan Younis or Beit Hanoun or wherever they like. And be certain to put them down on a “BDS List” given they are Israel’s enemies, returning to America’s campuses to remonstrate Jews and non-Jews comparison to protest and deprive and permit Israel — not Iran, not North Korea, not Syria, not China. But BDS on Israel.
So let them walk, take down a names, and keep them out. That is how we do it in America. That is how they do it in England. If we are not a citizen and are entrance to make trouble, we ain’t vouchsafing we in here. Go behind to your groundwork bedroom, content your friends, and expostulate your relatives crazy. Israel is not here to let we play out your psychoses innate of “Judaic Lupus” — an ideopathic auto-immune illness of a soul, in that one partial of a person’s inner being attacks a other partial for a purpose of destroying all of him.
A final word: Let them contend Kaddish for Hamas terrorists who get murdered. They are so impossibly ignorant of things Jewish — so impossibly filled with zero Jewish though instead usually a Democrat Party magnanimous height and dual hours during a Holocaust museum — that they have no thought what Kaddish is, what they are reciting.
So let me tell them: When we ignoramuses recite Kaddish for a Hamas terrorists who would murder you, here is what we are saying:
“May a Great Holy Name [of a G-d of a Torah of Israel] be finished good and holy in this universe that He combined as He wished. And might he power in all His excellence in your lives and in your days and in a lives of a whole House of Israel — unequivocally quickly, unequivocally shortly — and let us all say: Amen! May His Great Name be sanctified perpetually and ever.”
So, Amen. we will be a initial to respond “Amen” to any Kaddish shouted by any Leftist for anyone, any time. B’rikh Hu — Blessed is He.
My usually regard will be to assure that a Jewish Leftist in doubt who is reciting a Kaddish indeed is Jewish.
