A Recent Point At Which I Had To Say "Never Again" Once Again

The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism’s work on these issues is supported by a generous contribution from the Open Society Institute.

Once I read that, I knew that I had made a mistake and that Masada2000 wasn't too harsh on or chauvinist against Anat Hoffman after all. While I'll continue to support Women of the Wall, I will never again support Anat Hoffman or any branch of the Religious Action Center. While I do not know Ms. Hoffman's motives—whether or not they are malicious—I do know George Soros' motives, and he has made them clear to anyone who cares to research and read, listen to, and otherwise know about and know what he has said. I also know that while he had "fun" as a kapo, he put the blood of Levais, Nagys, and other relatives on his hands.

Meanwhile, I thought that I was just helping stop the further Haredization of Ha'Eretz v'Medinat Yisra'el. George Soros tricked me (and while I certainly don't agree with the URJ or RAC on everything, I thought that I could walk with them where I agreed with them); George Soros may be tricking Anat Hoffman (and "may be" is the key phrase—I certainly hope that Anat Hoffman is not malicious), and I hope that George Soros will not trick anyone else—at least ever again! If he does, though, he may want to keep fellow Jew George Wilson's words in mind:

God knows what you've been doing, everything you've been doing. You may fool me, but you can’t fool God!

By the way, Anti-Semitism alert: Baz Luhrmann put words into F. Scott Fitzgerald's pen and, thus, Tom Buchanan's mouth—Tom Buchanan never called Meyer Wolfsheim what Mrs. McKee called George Wilson.

"Hell Is Not A Jewish Concept". Or Is It? And About Legalism...

 To be fair, even Tanakh (Hadashah not included for the purposes of this discussion) indisputably and unequivocally warns of Gehenna or Gei Hinnom along with Gan 'Eden (Yesha'yahu 66:17-24, Dani'el 12:2-3). Even Talmud Bavli talks of Gei Hinnom (e.g., Gittin 57a; where, according to the Munich Codex of the Talmud, they believe that Yeshua is). Gei Hinnom is and should be no joke. As Max Lucado states, we too often make light of Gei Hinnom.


So if you continue to reject Yeshua as Mashiach, you may be among the Yehudim who are not of the remnant. Yesha'yahu 66:17-24 admonishes clearly:



“Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves,
To go to the gardens
After an idol in the midst,
Eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse,
Shall be consumed together,” says the Lord.
18 “For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall be that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and see My glory. 19 I will set a sign among them; and those among them who escape I will send to the nations: to Tarshish and Pul[a] and Lud, who draw the bow, and Tubal and Javan, to the coastlands afar off who have not heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles. 20 Then they shall bring all your brethren for an offering to theLord out of all nations, on horses and in chariots and in litters, on mules and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem,” says the Lord, “as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord21 And I will also take some of them for priests and Levites,” says the Lord.
22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth
Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the Lord,
“So shall your descendants and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass
That from one New Moon to another,
And from one Sabbath to another,
All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the Lord.
24 “And they shall go forth and look
Upon the corpses of the men
Who have transgressed against Me.
For their worm does not die,
And their fire is not quenched.
They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.”

The same goes for (as Hadashah is included in this discussion of) those who insist that a Meshichi must be shomer Torah, "who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage" (Galatians 2:4b). When you observe Pesach, think about why you are compelled to do it: you might not actually be under chen, or grace:


"7 Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 9 Do not be carried about[c] with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.

"10 We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. 13 Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach. 14 For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come. 15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. 16 But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased." (From Ivrim 7).

You can be easily condemned to Gei Hinnom for still keeping all 613 mitzvot while claiming to be under chen:

For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins...

11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,
16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”[c] 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”[d] 18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Hold Fast Your Confession

19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water...
26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said,“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”[e] says the Lord.[f] And again, “The Lord will judge His people.”[g]31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

(From Ivrim 10)

Many have fallen away, if they even had yeshu'at v'chen to begin with because they "have become estranged from Christ, [they] who attempt to be justified by law; [they] have fallen from grace." However, if you observe Pesach and the other mo'edim without compelling yourself and others to do so as a means of tzedek v'tzedekah, you're okay:

One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord;[a] and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and rose[b] and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.[c]

Pseudo-Christian Liberals and Tax Deductions


To say the least, I figured that-- well, here we go again. Pseudo-Christian Liberals always try to do this kind of stuff. Here's what a George Soros-loving, Far-Left, Pseudo Christian proposed; and the rest of the conversation but his and my part in it will be censored. So for both our sakes will be his name (I'm not willing to get sued by a man who thinks that Potter in "It's a Wonderful Life" was a Republican and who endorsed that awful University of Indiana, Bloomington study against Bill O'Reilly.).


Read this like a phone call, because I'm just using what this man said to sum up what he believes-- and believes to the detriment of not only churches and schools like those of Chapelgate, but batei knesiyot and shuls, mosques and madrassas, and other organizations as well. By the way, I posted only a part of the conversation; the part where I refused to get goaded into an argument with this guy.


So this George Soros-loving, Far-Left, Pseudo Christian  proposed the following:




[Paraphrase of what he told a mutual friend] The charity tax deduction should be abolished. 
...


 did I? I thought I proposed including religious organizations in said category.








 I propose excluding religious organizations from the category of an acceptable tax deduction. I believe that it infringes on the separation of church and state. I believe it attaches strings to religious organizations. Furthermore, I believe that it is grotesquely abused. I also believe I am going to get killed on this one.










It also frustrates me that many religious persons will defend Mitt Romney's right to use his church as a tax dodge and overlook his exceptionally immoral accumulation of wealth. He should be giving 90% of that away.




AS I said earlier, I believe it is showing favoritism to persons of religious belief. While I recognize the right of a holy God to show such favoritism, I categorically deny the right of a secular state, particularly under the guise of our particular system, to do so.




 in the moral sense.








 I think that charitable tax deductions should be acceptable when they are for some sense of the greater good, virtue in its historic sense.




...






 if you are going to use WSJ, can I use HuffPo?






 Isn't he simply identifying a return to a pre-Jeffersonian situation?








Indeed. I think they should get. WE are in a massive deficit. Either we cut spending (and yes Reagan fans, foreign policy is big government and expensive), or raise taxes.










 not surprising. Why do you think these people support policies that would seem to so threaten their wealth?








And that, I believe, is where Jesus comes into play. If America's evangelicals would start loving people like he commands us to, we wouldn't have many of the problems that government poorly tries to deal with. But of course they do a bad job. What do we expect from something as massive and complex as the Untied States?




 agreed on Buffett.


...




 the film in question was by Jamie Johnson, heir to the Johnson and Johnson fortune, and it was about the unethical nature of wealth perpetuation in the United States. He disowned her for being interviewed in it.
...




[Me] I don't see why legitimate good should be taxed. As pointed out, the tax deduction is there to protect the religious organizations from the government and vice versa-- which is based on a 1954 law endorsed heavily by then legislator Lyndon Baines Johnson.




 indeed it is worth seeing! I would love to hear your thoughts on it.






[Me] I've said what I'm going to say.

Why I've Suffered So Much: At Least Partly Because of That Kapo Mary Rusnak Gaydos

I don't exactly remember who Jack Feldman is descended from, by the way; but I begin to suspect more and more that his Chron's-- besides his trief eating-- comes from his Fosko-Rusnak matriarch being a kapo as well. My side (the Fosko-Rusnak-Gaydos side) has been visited for certain:

Numbers 14:18
‘The LORD is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’



I mean, I don't think that we can any more into entering the abyss zone than having four of the five Rusnak-Gaydos children (Grandaunt Mary Ann and Grandma included) being absolutely wicked (The only one who would not be wicked by doing or enabling any wickedness was Grandaunt Helen, who I didn't know was habat tzedekah until after she was gone.), having even some of habnei v'banot shel habat tzedekah take after the bnei-v'banot ra'im (Ashley and Matt, I'll name you as two of them. Shame on you for not acknowledging our Yiddishkeit and Eloheinu v'Elohim Avinu.), and having some of us bnei v'banot suffer abuse which we have not (or at least tried not to have) perpetuated the cycle of.


While I'm on the subject of Matt, by the way, why does he have Spina Bifida? And why do I have Cerebral Palsy? And why does Jack have Chron's (if his Fosko-Rusnak matriarch was indeed also a wicked kapo)?


Deuteronomy 7:13
And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of yourcattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you.



Let me give you a hint: Great-Grandma Gaydos and her zerim sure haven't been blessed:



Leviticus 21:17-24

New King James Version (NKJV)
17 “Speak to Aaron, saying: ‘No man of your descendants in succeeding generations, who has anydefect, may approach to offer the bread of his God. 18 For any man who has a defect shall not approach: a man blind or lame, who has a marred face or any limb too long, 19 a man who has a broken foot or broken hand, 20 or is a hunchback or a dwarf, or a man who has a defect in his eye, or eczema or scab, or is a eunuch. 21 No man of the descendants of Aaron the priest, who has a defect, shall come near to offer the offerings made by fire to the LORD. He has a defect; he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God. 22 He may eat the bread of his God, both the most holy and the holy; 23 only he shall not go near the veil or approach the altar, because he has a defect, lest he profane My sanctuaries; for I the LORD sanctify them.’”
24 And Moses told it to Aaron and his sons, and to all the children of Israel.



Hint two: 


While we may not be koheinim, let me ask you this: if being one "who has a defect" (including one that results in the said one being "blind or lame, who has a marred face or any limb too long, a man who has a broken foot or broken hand, or is a hunchback or a dwarf") is even a (for a lack of a better term) just-because curse to zerim shel Aharon; how likely would you think that any one of those defects could be inflicted even on non koheinim who are or whose predecessors were kapos?


Numbers 14:18
‘The LORD is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’


As I said, by the way, being crippled and being sickened (with me, Matt, and Jack-- if his Fosko-Rusnak matriarch was indeed also a wicked kapo-- included) aren't the only curses which the zerim of the kapo Fosko Rusnaks-- especially those of Mary Rusnak Gaydos-- have had to endure.

A Short Hanukkah Story...

A Jewish boy was on the corner of a busy street in a busy city. This Jewish boy was poor and begging for money. Most of what he got was either persecution, begging, or just no money. Some gave him money, but one  who gave him money mercilessly persecuted him while giving him the money. "Here, Jew. Here's your money. Poor boy; is that all you ever think about?" Then the persecutor just walked away.

People who begged the boy for money were beggars themselves, begging for some of the money which he'd be given or asking how he'd begged. Then came a disheveled-looking, long-haired-seeming man in dirty-appearing  clothes begging for money. The boy, not knowing what else to do, gave him the money. Then the disheveled-looking man held out sevenfold the money that had been given to him. "Can I keep this?"

The boy nodded. Then the man held out tenfold of the sevenfold. "Can I keep this?" The boy nodded, more surprised than at first. A hundredfold of the tenfolded sevenfold appeared in the man's hand. Then the man gave the boy the money.

"Yeshua!" The boy cried. Then the man walked away, and the boy ran home with enough money to live for at least the next couple of days.
