Thanking All Who Liked My Page Recently and Like My Page, And...


  1. לפסח ושבת שלום ומבורך לכולם. (For a peaceful and blessed Passover and Sabbath to all.)
  2. For Messianic Jews/Jewish Christians, remember why we (and gentile Christians) celebrate פסח: 
  • "שמרו זאת בזיכרון של לי."
  • "בכל שעה שאתם אוכלים מצה הזאת ושותים הכוס הזה, אתם מכריזים המות שלי עד אני באה."
(If you don't read even some Hebrew, use Google Translate to translate it. Incidentally, I used Hebrew-Verbs.co.il, Milon, and other sources [including what I remembered from studying Hebrew in college] to translate it into Hebrew].)

Also, G-d willing, I'll try to record videos on, among other subjects:

  1. Bladder cancer, since I do volunteer for the Bladder Cancer Advocacy NetworkAs I explained to the recruiter (Natalie Bennett), I have a history of other cancers (e.g., Colon Cancer) in my family (e.g., Pop-Pop had it. BTW, he also died of Myelodysplasia that turned into Leukemia), and I can imagine that Bladder Cancer is exacerbated by conditions such as IBS (which I have) and, of course, Colon Cancer.  By the way, when I talked to Natalie, I learned that Bladder Cancer is the most-diagnosed cancer in the United States, despite that it hardly gets awareness raised for it (compared to, e.g., Breast Cancer. Great-Granddad's cousin Katarzyna Czerniecka Czokola, as I found out, did die of Breast Cancer, by the way.).
  2. Why Russia and the Middle East are, quite frankly, their own continents, despite their current classification. Technically, Central America could be its own continent, too.
  3. What "few in number" for Israel might actually mean (i.e., depending on who is considered Jewish ethnically and/or spiritually Biblically and amongst Jews. Either way, we're "few in number" from at least an ethnic standpoint.)
Meanwhile, ללילה ושבת ופסח טוב ושלום ומבורך לכל ישראל וצדוקים מגויים.

PS Part of the reason that I promoted my Facebook page is to (hopefully) get noted for my commentary and (G-d willing) get a job as a commentator and an analyst. Being, e.g., on SSI benefits sucks (and I opposed being on them at first, feeling that doing so was a form of socialism and being a burden on the tax payers. Besides, I have been persecuted for being on them [See below for a horrid example.]. But what can I do when, e.g., I have C.P., no paying job, etc.?)


JohnLeePedimore has replied to your comment on Shocking Video: Should "Adult Baby" Collect Social Security Benefits?:
@Nickidewbear

Let me guess,your family actually works for a living and turned their back on you because you are a lazy pig.

Also PS: I save most of my emails. BTW, I just noticed this now-just-reported comment, too:
It's bad enough that you people leech off the American taxpayer like parasites,but what really pisses me off is the utter contempt you have for the hard working people who foot the bill for your lazy ass.You don't appreciate anything you have because you didn't have to work for it. You are a thief.
Then people swear that attitudes toward people with disabilities has changed...actually, it has gotten worse. Then they want me to represent people with disabilities when they act like I, a person who lives with a disability, don't know what I'm talking about....no kidding, as one Haggadah reads (with my emphasis and bracketed additions), that :
Access to affordable housing, quality health care, nutritious food and quality education is far from equal. The disparity between the privileged and the poor is growing, with opportunities for upward mobility still gravely limited. Maimonides taught, “Everyone in the house of Israel is obligated to study Torah, regardless of whether one is rich or poor, physically able or with a physical disability.” Unequal access to basic human needs [e.g., being treated as a human being who was created in the image of G-d], based on one’s real or perceived identity, like race, gender or disability, is a plague, antithetical to the inclusive spirit of the Jewish tradition.
And
We do not adequately address violence in our society, including rape, sex trafficking, child abuse, domestic violence and elder abuse [including verbal, mental/psychological, religious/spiritual, and other intangible/non-physical abuse; and neglect], even though it happens every day within our own communities.

Three Questions For a Seder and My Answers (And In Lieu of Pictures of the Passover Eclipse)

By the way, the original poster makes a good point, and even I only remember 1620 (April or May), Plymouth, Massachusetts (from which I'm assuming the city in Luzerne County got its name), the Pilgrims, etc.—and I'm an American-born Jew who majored in Political Science, not to mention one whose mom's family is purportedly related to Ethan Allen  and somehow related to John Allan! 

(I have yet, I think, to figure out the exact connection. Nonetheless, as Allen family history goes, you are an alcoholic and/or have a relationship with a difficult parent. Edgar Allan Poe indeed had both traits—and don't be mistaken; adopted children can pick up family traits. The point, of course, is that I should know more about the Mayflower, the Puritans, etc.—and the one thing, or at least one of the things, that sticks with me is the Sukkot celebration that became Thanksgiving.)

Anyway, enough about not being American enough for being so American (though maybe that's a good thing; given that it might mean that I'm less assimilated than I could've been for being a bat-Anusim who didn't know about my Jewish heritage for years!). 

By the way, one more point before I answer the questions (and this really sticking with me): unlike Anusi Christopher Columbus, who understandably drew a parallel between the Native Americans and the Kena'anim, there can be no explanation as to why the Puritans killed the Native Americans who they killed (Quite frankly, Columbus killed some Native Americans; whereas the Puritans murdered them. With the differences of the Covenants, Columbus did what was right while the Puritans did not. Besides, you would have to be kidding yourself if you could blame, e.g., Pinchas and Paul for murder. In the case of Paul, by the way, he thought that he was applying the mitzvot about killing koferim correctly.).

1. What events have shaped your identity on a personal and a Jewish level?

There are so many that I could not even begin to answer this question fully. One, though, is when I saw a Messianic Jewish display at a Family Christian Bookstores shop and then typed in "Jews For Jesus" as (what I thought was) a joke to see where it would go. The other thing, too, was Dad taking deliberate pains to pronounce our last name "Charnetski" at points. So, really, it was a sequence of events that led up to finding out who I really am.

By the way, I know that my family gets mad at me; and one complaint is that circumstantial evidence is not enough. However, circumstantial evidence was enough for those such as Hillel (e.g., a woman didn't need a body to prove that her husband was dead). Also, Dad's atDNA results are showing "Caucasus" (Middle Eastern) DNA. Incidentally, I still maintain that the Foczkos are Levites; and whoever permanently marked our DNA gave the Foczko men the R1a1a1b1-Z280-...L-1280 mutation (which is apparently an European R1a1a1 mutation, although whoever updated the chart did not update the R1a1a1b1...CTS6 to reflect an exclusively-Persian origin and needs to do that). Also, gerim and giyorot were considered part of the tribe into whom they married.
 
2. How do you recall them? How do they influence the way you live and act?


See my About.Me page. From there, you can see my Facebook accounts and page, my Twitter account, and other medium that I use, all of which reflect how finding out that I'm Jewish and a bat-Levi (and a bat-kohanim) have affected how I live and act. That'll be quite a recollection on my part, I think.

3. What stories do you tell your children about your family and communal past?


I don't have children (at least yet), and the answer to Question Two applies to Question Three. By the way, Lipsk, Sejny, etc. were part of Congress Poland; and I also now know why owning farms was so important for the Czernieckis, Danilowiczes, etc.:

The government of Nicholas I regarded the cantonist laws as part of the system of legislation for "correcting" the Jews in the realm, their principal object being to convert large numbers of Jewish children to Christianity and make them conform to the Russian environment. The cantonist laws were therefore used as a means of exerting pressure on Jews in other spheres. Jewish youths who attended the state schools, for instance, were exempted from their military obligations, as were children of Jewish agricultural colonists. These concessions, therefore, to some extent promoted an increase in the proportion of Jewish children at state schools and of Jewish agricultural settlers. The cantonist legislation also did not apply to districts of the Kingdom of Poland and of Bessarabia – the latter until 1852 – so that a number of Jews moved from the Ukraine, Belorussia, and Lithuania to these areas. The law thus also stimulated Jewish emigration from Russia.

Repost: When Was Yeshua Crucified? According To HebCal.com....

Pesach I



Discussed previously:

"31 Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him. 33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. 36 For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, “Not one of His bones shall be broken.”[f] 37 And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”[g]
"38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body of Jesus. 39 And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid.42 So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews’ Preparation Day, for the tomb was nearby."


Thus, Hebrew4Christians is incorrect: Yeshua was considered as though dead on Thursday night (arrested, etc.) and risen on Sunday morning. So, 1/2 (Thursday night (14 Aviv)) + 1 (all day Friday (14-15 Aviv)) + 1 (all day Saturday (15-16 Aviv)) + 1/2 (Sunday morning (16 Aviv)):


Mark 14:58 KJV

We heard him say , I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
