Kosher BBQ Competition

Keeping it Kosher in LA’s Kosher Corridor: Soul Food

In this episode of Soul Food, our host Kiran Deol heads over to LA’s Kosher Corridor to get wise to the ways one can keep it kosher. She gets schooled by the local butcher, and discovers that today’s kosher food and drink is much more than just matzo balls and sweet, syrupy wine. Kosher cuisine can be contemporary, or really any style of food—be it burritos or a lamb belly “bacon” sandwich with homemade sriracha—as long as one follows strict kosher guidelines. Kiran’s exploration of where the spirit meets the stomach ends with an insightful invite for a Friday night sampling of a Shabbat dinner.

Krula Camp Tish B’Av Play: Churban Habayis

28.07.2015 צפו בפעילות המיוחדת במחנה ‘נחלת צבי’ קראלי שבהרי הקטסקיל שם למדו התלמידים באופן חי ומוחשי על סדר העבודה שהיה בזמן שבית המקדש היה קיים: בעוד הילדים ה”כהנים” עסוקים בעבודה בהדלקת המנורה והקרבת הקרבנות, הגיעו הילדים ה”רומאים” והציתו אש בכותל העזרה שנשרף עד היסוד. ה”גולים” ישבו לארץ ובכו על החורבן וכל המשתתפים במחנה נמס לבבם לנוכח המחזה שהטעימם מעין הצער הגדול שהיה בעת חורבן הבית Tu B’Av From Wikipedia, Tu B’Av (Hebrew: ט”ו באב, the fifteenth of the month Av) is a minor Jewish holiday. In modern-day Israel, it is celebrated as a holiday of love (Hebrew: חג האהבה‎, Hag HaAhava), similar to Valentine’s Day.[1] It has been said to be a “great day for weddings” According to the Mishna, Tu B’Av was a joyous holiday in the days of the Temple in Jerusalem, marking the beginning of the grape harvest. Yom Kippur marked the end of the grape harvest. On both dates, the unmarried girls of Jerusalem dressed in white garments, which they borrowed,[2] and went out to dance in the vineyards (Babylonian Talmud, tractate Ta’anit 30b-31a).[3] That same section in the Talmud states that there were no holy days as happy for the Jews as Tu B’Av and Yom Kippur.[4] The holiday celebrated the wood-offering brought in the temple (see Nehemiah 10:35). Josephus refers to it as the Feast of Xylophory (“Wood-bearing”).[5] Photo by Wikipedia read more… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_B%27Av

Dr Maurice Mizrahi – The secrets of Jewish survival (Tish’a b’Av)

22.07.2015 A few days from now is Tish’a b’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. Many catastrophes befell the Jews on that day, the Ninth of Av, including the destruction of the two temples in Jerusalem. Each of these tragedies, by itself, could have led to the disappearance of Judaism. But none did. Why? What made the Jews survive as a distinct people, when so many other civilizations have disappeared? [captions available — click on “cc”]

Orthodox Jews Taking Jiu Jitsu Lessons for Self Defense

21.07.2015 A new version of martial arts is being taught to and practiced by Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. CBS2’s Scott Rapoport talked to a man who has been called the “most dangerous Jew in NYC” — Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. Former NYC probation officers and Washington Heights native Steve Isaak, 67, has developed a personalized style of martial arts called Shima Juijitsu. He’s been teaching it for more than 40 years to a devoted following of the city’s most observant, Orthodox Jews, in a Brighton Beach studio. Part of his mission is for it to be self-defense from anti-semetism. “Everyone need self-defense but they need it more than most, based on the history of Jewish people,” Isaak said. His students come in all shapes, sizes, ages and sexes. There are women, too, who want to learn to defend themselves — like Chavi Charlap. And what does she get from the class? “I get confidence,” Charlap replied. Because they are Orthodox, the women train separately from the men. And though touching is traditionally verboten, some of his female students permit it during training, saying Isaak’s classes are conducted with respect to their Orthodox values. “If I’m in a life threatening situation and because of this I can save my life and other lives then it’s definitely worth it,” Charlap said. Isaak turned to martial arts as a young, 12-year-old boy after he says he was beaten up by two older kids. By the time he got to college, he was teaching self-defense. He opened his own martial arts school shortly after that. Isaak says the secret and power of Shima Juijitsu is that you don’t have to be athletic or powerful. That it is based on efficiency, not strength, Rapoport reported. The cerebral Sensai says he teaches his students a series of moves that can deflect and derail an attacker. His student Rabbi David Goldshyn with the Jewish Center Of Brighton Beach says it’s effective and necessary. “You don’t want to get into a fight every two seconds,” Goldshyn said. “But you also want to have the confidence that if something happens you can protect yourself.” Through the years, Isaak says he’s taught Shima Juijitsu to cops, prosecutors, judges and even some in Israel’s defense forces. Isaak says he now now lives in Myrtle Beach, but comes back to Brighton Beach every two weeks for 5 days at a time to teach his Orthodox students. He says his students demand it.

Howard Sterns Daughter Observes Shabbat

Strictly Kosher series

All rights belong to ITV. The Jewish community in Manchester is a kaleidoscope of tradition, religion and extravagance. This documentary film opens a window into their lives and shows a wide variety of ritual and celebrations. Strictly Kosher, filmed, produced and directed by Chris Malone, revolves around three families and their friends and paints a colourful picture of the juxtaposition between the many different personalities and levels of religious observance in Manchester’s Jewish community. It offers an insight into lifestyles which range from one extreme — traditional and strict – to the other — modern and extravagant – but are bound together by one faith. The film follows Bernette Clarke, a very lively and modern Orthodox Jewish mother of three. Bernette talks openly about her faith, explains the traditional approach her family has to the Sabbath and other Jewish festivals, and offers her views on the wider Jewish community. Joel Lever and his wife Joanne also allow the cameras into their lives. Joel’s family are traditionally Jewish by birth, but he admits they are not very religious. Joel puts his all into his fashion boutique ‘Mon Amie’ which is frequented by the Jewish ladies of Prestwich — by making the Jewish women the talk of the town, he feels he is serving the local community. 83-year-old Jack Aizenberg tells the ultimate rags to riches story. He was just eleven years old at the outbreak of the Second World War and his family were killed in Belzec Extermination camp in 1942 when he was just 14. Against the odds Jack survived and made his way to Manchester, England in 1945. Jack feels that religion is not as important as basic common humanity and does not practice all the requirements of the Jewish faith, but he’s a celebrated survivor venerated by the Jewish community in Manchester. Having made a successful career in the luggage trade, Jack is thrilled to have the money to throw his grandson a lavish Bar Mitzvah — a special moment caught on camera.

JamShalom & Phishalom Summer ’15 Fundraiser

12.05.2015

Kindly donate here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ja…

4,000 years ago the father and mother of all Spirituality, Abraham and Sarah, set up the first JamShalom tent in the crossroads of ancient Canaan. Three Holy Chillers stopped by their tent for some great food and great company (and rumor has it that they also jammed up a storm), and the rest is history. Fast-forward to 1965: The Grateful Dead are born, and holy chilling tents are suddenly popping up on every crossroads across the country. Jump 44 more years to 2009, and PHISHalom sets up its first tent on Phish-Lot, bringing together the ancient Jewish traditions of hospitality and good food, joined with the love and family we first encountered on Dead-Lot. Six years later, and PHISHalom and JamShalom have become a familiar home to hundreds of fans at Phish concerts and music festivals, and the Golden Shore has become a regular destination for Holy Chillers who find their way to Israel. Look for us on the road at your favorite concerts and festivals this summer, and stop by for a holy chill, some great food, an open jam, and endless friendship

17th of Tammuz – Complete Connection – Torah Insights

http://www.naaleh.com By Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller On the 17th of Tammuz five horrible events occurred in Jewish history. One of these events was the chat ha’agel, the sin of the golden calf. A calf symbolizes the power of the people- the Jewish people were essentially worshiping themselves. From here we learn how to have a complete connection with Hashem, G-d.

Farewell to Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival 2014

2014 brought the winds of war to our region, throwing a shadow over the festival that threated to unravel the delicate fabric and ideals upon which it is based. But despite this, international and local artists came to Jerusalem imbued with a sense of commitment and a renewed belief in the message that calls on the Middle East’ peoples to open their hearts and allow music to unite us. In what is now an annual tradition, the festival offers unique experiences that bring together international and Israeli artists in performances under a canopy of stars, opposite Jerusalem’s ancient walls and in houses of prayer. Each year we invite audiences to take part in “A Night Stroll,” a magical white night at the Tower of David comprising performances, ceremonies, some whispering and a series of “Testimony Encounters” — guided tours that trace the sacred sounds that play year-round in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem Day, 2015: Rightful Owners of the Temple Mount

17.05.2015 The holiday known as ‘Jerusalem Day’ is observed in Israel every year on the Hebrew date of Iyar 28 – the day corresponding with June 7th, 1967 on which the city of Jerusalem was liberated and united by the paratrooper brigade of the Israel Defense Forces in the Six Day War. 48 years later to the day, on May 17th, 2015, a crowd numbering 1,000 Jews converged at the gate of the Temple Mount, eager to ascend the mountain in joyous acknowledgment of the miraculous return of the city to Jewish sovereignty and in fulfillment of the Biblical commandment to revere the place of the Holy Temple. Most of all, they came to pray at the holy site. The discriminatory practices and self-styled, anti-democratic ‘rules’ of the police prevented Jewish prayer, but once again fully allowed the demonic incitement of crowds of Muslim thugs and mercenaries who dogged every step of the Jewish pilgrims on the Mount and generally did their best to cause the Jews misery. And while the Jewish worshipers waited on line in the sun for as long as three hours for a chance to ascend even briefly on this special day, many were turned away in disappointment. But the Jews who gathered that morning at the Mugrabi Gate waiting to ascend to the Temple Mount had the honor of welcoming and hearing a hero in their midst: renowned Torah scholar Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder and president of the Temple Institute, was himself an IDF paratrooper who fought for the liberation of the Temple Mount on this very day, 48 years ago. The rabbi addressed the enthusiastic crowd and spoke of his experiences as a soldier in this very spot on that fateful day. Rabbi Ariel recalled his fallen comrades who gave their lives for the return of the Temple Mount to the Jewish people, and encouraged the assembled to continue in the heroes’ footsteps by demonstrating Jewish presence and rightful ownership of the Mount.

Jerusalem of Gold – Yerushalayim shel Zahav -Ofra Haza- with English Lyrics

“Jerusalem of Gold” (Hebrew: ירושלים של זהב‎, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav) is a popular Israeli song written by Naomi Shemer in 1967. The original song described the Jewish people’s 2000-year longing to return to Jerusalem; Shemer added a final verse after the Six-Day War to celebrate Jerusalem’s unification under Israeli control. At that time, the Old City was under Jordanian rule; Jews had been barred from entering, and many holy sites had been desecrated. Only three weeks after the song was published, the Six-Day War broke out. The song was the battle cry and morale booster of the Israeli troops. Shemer even sang it for them before the war and festival, making them among the first in the world to hear it. On 7 June, the Israel Defense Forces captured the eastern part of Jerusalem and the Old City from the Jordanians. When Shemer heard the paratroopers singing “Jerusalem of Gold” at the Western Wall, she wrote a final verse, reversing the phrases of lamentation found in the second verse. The line about shofars sounding from the Temple Mount is a reference to an event that actually took place on 7 June. This beautiful version is from the late OFRA HAZA.

The Festival of Shavuot

Intimately connected to the land of Israel, Shavuot is the festival of the bringing of the first-fruits to the Holy Temple. Shavuot is also the anniversary of the Sinai revelation and the receiving of Torah by Israel, and since the destruction of the Holy Temple the emphasis of Shavuot has been Torah study. Ultimately, Torah study and the bringing of the first-fruits are both expressions of the centrality of Torah in our lives. When we build the Holy Temple we best exemplify the fulfillment of Torah in this world by the bringing of the first-fruits.

Prominent NY Rabbi Arthur Schneier Honored With Papal Knighthood

03.05.2015 Lenny Bruce famously said that even a Catholic in New York is Jewish, but that didn’t stop one of the city’s most prominent Jewish leaders from accepting a touch of the Holy See on Monday. Rabbi Arthur Schneier of Manhattan’s Park East Synagogue was knighted and made a member of the Papal Order of St. Sylvester at a ceremony on the Upper East Side, joining luminaries such as industrialist Oskar Schindler and comedian Bob Hope who have held the title. “It’s Pope Francis’ very touching and tender way of confirming [Rabbi Schneier] and the good works that he’s done on behalf of religious freedom, international peace and justice,” said longtime pal and neighbor Cardinal Timothy Dolan, head of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. The cardinal grinned broadly as he pinned the order’s gold cross to the 84-year-old Holocaust survivor’s lapel. “It’s an honor.” During his career, Rabbi Schneier campaigned vigorously alongside other faith leaders for greater religious freedom and tolerance, as well as helping to build ties between Jews and Roman Catholics following World War II. “In 1965, in the height of religious persecution in the Soviet Union, I mobilized with Robert Kennedy religious leaders of all faiths in an appeal to our first religious freedom mission to Moscow, but via Rome,” Rabbi Schneier said. “We need to strive together…for a world of mutual acceptance—not tolerance, acceptance.” Rabbi Schneier has been associated with the Park East Synagogue since 1962. After the ceremony, the new knight shared a Champagne toast with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Mayor David Dinkins and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, as well as half a dozen of the city’s most prominent religious leaders. “I’m here to pay tribute to a dear friend and a good leader,” Dr. Kissinger said. “He’s contributed to the solution of one our great problems,” promoting peace between the major world faiths. The knighthood, which may be bestowed on Catholics and non-Catholics alike, is intended to honor significant contributions to humanity. The ancient order’s origin is somewhat murky, though it apparently was first intended to honor lay Catholics who showed intense devotion to the church. In 1905, Pope Pius X changed the Order of St. Sylvester to include non-Catholic honorees, separating it from the so-called Golden Militia, of which it had previously been a part. In addition to the gold cross, the official St. Sylvester regalia includes a red-and-black uniform and a sword. “You mentioned about my getting a sword? I have a problem with a sword, though,” Rabbi Schneier insisted. “I’m for peace!” “Turn it into a plowshare,” Cardinal Dolan suggested.

Jerusalem Day

From Wikipedia Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים‎, Yom Yerushalayim) is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalemand the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. The day is officially marked by state ceremonies and memorial services. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to mark the regaining of access to the Western Wall.[1] While the day has lost its significance for most secular Israelis,[2][3][4] the day is still very much celebrated by Israel’s Religious Zionist community[5][6] with parades and additional prayers in the synagogue.Photo by Wikipedia Read More Button--orange

A new anti-Semitism? Why thousands of Jewish citizens are leaving France

Some Jewish citizens in France say there is a rising tide of a new, more dangerous anti-Semitism in the country. In turn, thousands are leaving for Israel and other countries. In an effort to reassure Jewish people in France that they are safe, the government has taken strict measures against anti-Semitic demonstrations. Special correspondent Martin Seemungal reports.

Why have anti-Semitic attacks on French Jews nearly doubled in one year?

08.02.2015 Last month’s terror attack at a Kosher supermarket in Paris called attention to rising anti-Semitism in France. This week, attackers slashed three soldiers guarding a Jewish community center in Nice. French authorities believe a small number of radicalized young men from North Africa are responsible for a disproportio

Turkey’s Great Synagogue inaugurated after restoration

26.03.2015 The Great Synagogue, which is considered the third largest in the Europe and the largest in Turkey, has been inaugurated for worship after a-four-year-long restoration in northwestern Edirne province of Turkey on March 26, 2015. The synagogue was in use until 1983 and the restoration was launched by Turkey’s General Directorate of Foundations. (Footage by Salih Baran / Anadolu Agency)

Historical synagogue in Turkey’s northwest to open soon

09.03.2015 A historical synagogue, the subject of an outcry due to a governor’s remarks to turn it into a museum, is waiting to be reopened for services at the end of the month. The Great Synagogue, in the northwestern province of Edirne, will open on March 26, after undergoing a four year restoration. Jewish community head, İshak İbrahimzadeh, who visited the synagogue before the opening ceremony, said the opening of the restored synagogue was a milestone that made him very happy. Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç and Turkey’s chief rabbi, İshak Haleva, will attend the opening, along with many other Jewish community members from both Turkey and abroad. As Europe’s second largest synagogue, the Edirne Synagogue was built in 1907 after a widespread fire in 1905 that burnt down 13 separate synagogues. The synagogue was constructed using the architectural model of Vienna’s Leopoldstadter Tempel and abandoned in 1983. The temple was transferred to Thrace University to be used as a museum after its restoration but after much criticism from the Jewish community in Turkey, the building was transferred back to the General Directorate for Foundations. Edirne Gov. Dursun Şahin created uproar when he told reporters on Nov. 21, 2014, that the synagogue would be turned into a museum, citing the recent Israeli raid on the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. “While those bandits blow winds of war inside al-Aqsa and slay Muslims, we build their synagogues,” Şahin said. Şahin later offered an “apology” to Haleva, claiming that his proposal to turn the synagogue into a museum as a reprisal for Israel’s policies over Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque “had no connection” to the Turkish Jewish community.

YOUR HOLIDAY GUIDE: Passover 5775 – 2015 (April 3-11, 2015)

Your Passover Guide – 2015

Editor’s NotePassover begins this year on Friday evening, April 3, 2015, and continues until nightfall, April 11, 2015. We bring you a brief overview of how and when to prepare your home for Passover, along with a daily holiday schedule for the entire holiday. If you have any further questions please consult your local orthodox rabbi or, in case you don’t have one, write to us atwww.chabad.org/asktherabbi.Please read this guide in its entirety before the beginning of the holiday. Some holiday items need pre-holiday “action.” We welcome you to print it and carry it with you in the days before Passover for easy reference, and to distribute this guide to whomever will benefit from it.

Operation Zero Chametz Passover is a holiday that mandates our complete involvement, not just during its eight days but for weeks before. Aside from the regular holiday obligations, we are also commanded (Exodus 13:3–7): “No leaven shall be eaten . . . For seven days you shall eat unleavened bread . . . and no leaven shall be seen of yours [in your possession].” We accomplish this by cleaning and inspecting our homes well before Passover, and gradually eliminating chametz from every room and crevice. This intensive cleaning takes place in Jewish homes throughout the world. What is Chametz? Chametz is any food product made from wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, or their derivatives, which has leavened (risen). Our sages have determined that flour from any of these five grains that comes in contact with water or moisture will leaven, unless fully baked within eighteen minutes. As we are commanded by the Torah, if a food contains even a trace of chametz, we don’t eat it, we don’t derive benefit from it, and we make sure not to have any of it in our possession for all the days of Passover. To be certain that a product is kosher for Passover, it must have rabbinical certification. Otherwise it is possible that it contains chametz ingredients, or traces of chametz if it was processed on the same equipment as chametz products. Thus, unless a product is certified Kosher for Passover, we consider it chametz, and make sure not to have it in our possession on Passover. Note: Matzah used all year round might be pure chametz, and not for Passover use. Only matzahs baked especially for Passover may be used on Passover. Kitniyot The medieval Jewish sages placed a ban on eating legumes (kitniyot) on Passover, because they are similar in texture to chametz—even bread can be made out of their flour—so people might assume that if, for example, cornbread can be eaten on Passover, wheat or rye bread can be eaten too. This prohibition includes rice, beans and corn. This injunction was unanimously accepted by Ashkenazic Jews; many Sephardic Jews, however, continue to eat kitniyot on Passover. If you are Sephardic, speak to your rabbi to determine your family and community tradition. The prohibition is only with regards to consumption ofkitniyot; there is no obligation, however, to destroy or sell kitniyot products before Passover. Getting Rid of Chametz Search and Destroy Any area where one can reasonably suspect that chametz might have been brought throughout the year must be thoroughly cleaned. This includes the home, office, cars, garage, etc. Check carefully to ensure that no crumb is left behind: check and clean desks, drawers, closets, clothing pockets (especially the children’s), pocketbooks, briefcases and attache cases, beds, dining and living room furniture, bookcases, etc. If You Can’t Destroy it, Sell It Chametz that you don’t want to destroy, and utensils used throughout the year (and not koshered for Passover), should be stored in closets or rooms which will be sealed for the duration of Passover. The chametz should be sold to a non-Jew through a rabbi.Click here to sell your chametz online. Preparing the Kitchen Every part of our homes is cleaned for Passover, but we pay special attention to the kitchen, because (a) that’s where most of our chametz hangs out during the year, and (b) we will be using our kitchens to prepare our Passover food. Dishes and Utensils Today, most Passover-savvy homes have a special set of dishes, silverware, pots, pans and other utensils for Passover use only. If necessary, certain year-round utensils can be used—provided they are koshered for Passover. This gets rather complex—you’ll need to consult a competent rabbi about your particular utensils, but you can click here for the basic koshering procedures. Stove Thoroughly clean and scour every part of the stove. Heat the oven to the highest temperature possible for 1–2 hours. Heat the grates and the iron parts of the stove (and the elements, if electric) until they are red-hot. It is suggested that the oven and the stove top should be covered with aluminum foil afterwards for the duration of Passover. Microwave Ovens Clean the oven thoroughly. Fill a completely clean container, that was not used for 24 hours, with water. Turn on the microwave and let it steam heavily. Turn it off and wipe out the inside. To use the microwave during Passover, use a flat, thick, microwave-safe object as a separation between the bottom of the oven and the cooking dish. When cooking or warming, the food should be covered on all sides. Sink For 24 hours before koshering the sink, do not pour hot water from chametz pots into it. Meticulously clean the sink, boil water in a clean pot which was not used for 24 hours, and pour three times onto every part of the sink, including the drain stopper. Then line the sink with foil or liner. Refrigerator, Freezer, Cupboards, Closets, Tables, and Counters Thoroughly clean and scrub them to remove any crumbs and residue. Afterwards, place a heavy covering over those surfaces that come into contact with hot food or utensils. Tablecloths and Napkins Launder without starch. Cars, Garages, etc. Vacuum your car or van; thoroughly clean your basement, garage, or any property you own. Special care should be taken with items you will be using, or rooms you will be accessing, during Passover. Passover Shopping While shopping for Passover we must be careful that the foods we buy are not only kosher, but are also kosher for Passover—that is, chametz-free. Starting “From Scratch” All fruits and vegetables, as well as all kosher cuts of meat and kosher fish, are kosher for Passover, provided they have been prepared in accordance with Jewish law and have not come into contact withchametz or chametz utensils. The prevailing custom in Ashkenazi communities is that on Passover we do not eat rice, millet, corn, mustard, legumes (beans, etc.) or food made from any of these. Commercially Prepared Products Today there are many kosher-for-Passover packaged foods available. However, care must be used to purchase only those packaged foods that have reliable rabbinical supervision which is valid for Passover. Obviously, all leavened foods made from—or that contain among their ingredients—wheat, barley, rye, oats, or spelt are actual chametz and are prohibited on Passover. Examples are bread, cake, cereal, spaghetti, beer and whiskey. Check That Medicine Cabinet! Many medicines, sprays, and cosmetics contain chametz. Consult a competent rabbi as to which ones may be used on Passover. The same applies to pet food. Click here to to purchase your Passover essentials from our store. The Passover Calendar—2015

Blessed are You, L‑rd our G‑d, King of the universe, who has granted us life, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this occasion. The Seder Ingredients Matzah, the “Food of Faith” When our forefathers left Egypt, they were in such a hurry that there was no time to wait for the dough to rise. They therefore ate matzah, unleavened bread. With only this food (but with great faith), our ancestors relied on the Almighty to provide sustenance for the entire Jewish nation—men, women and children. Each year, to remember this, we eat matzah on the first two nights of Pesach, thereby fulfilling the Torah’s commandment, “Matzot shall you eat . . .” The Humblest of Foods Matzah symbolizes faith. In contrast to leavened bread, matzah is not enriched with oil, honey or other substances. It consists only of flour and water, and is not allowed to rise. Similarly, the only “ingredients” for faith are humility and submission to G‑d, which come from recognizing our “nothingness” when compared with the infinite wisdom of the Creator. One of the holiday’s primary obligations is to eat matzah during the Seder. It is strongly recommended to use shmurah matzah to fulfill this commandment. Matzah is eaten three times during the Seder:

  1. After telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt (Maggid), washing our hands for bread (Rachtzah) and reciting the blessings (Motzi Matzah), 1¾ ounces of matzah are eaten.
  2. For the sandwich (Korech), ¾ of an ounce of matzah is eaten.
  3. For the afikoman at the end of the meal (Tzafun), a minimum of ¾ of an ounce (and ideally 1½ ounces) of matzah are eaten.

In each instance, the matzah should be eaten within 4 minutes. How much is one ounce of Matzah? Half a piece of shmurah matzah is generally one ounce. If store-bought matzot are used, the weight of the box of matzot divided by the number of pieces shows how much matzah is the equivalent of one ounce. Shmurah Matzah Shmurah means “watched,” and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing. The day chosen for the harvesting of the wheat is a clear, dry day. The moment it is harvested, the wheat is inspected to ensure that there is absolutely no moisture. From then on, careful watch is kept upon the grains as they are transported to the mill. The mill is meticulously inspected by rabbis and supervision professionals to ensure that every piece of equipment is absolutely clean and dry. After the wheat is milled, the flour is again guarded in its transportation to the bakery. Thus, from the moment of harvesting through the actual baking of the matzah, the flour is carefully watched to ensure against any contact with water. The water, too, is carefully guarded to prevent any contact with wheat or other grain. It is drawn the night before the baking, and kept pure until the moment it is mixed with the flour to bake the shmurah matzah. Also in the bakery itself, shmurah matzot are under strict supervision to avoid any possibility of leavening during the baking process. This intensive process and careful guarding gives the shmurah matzah an added infusion of faith and sanctity—in fact, as the matzah is being made, all those involved constantly repeat, “L’shem matzot mitzvah”—“We are doing this for the sake of the mitzvah of matzah.” Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to useshmurah matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate. Click to order your own shmurah matzah. Passover Wine For each of the four cups at the Seder, it is preferable to use undiluted wine. However, if needed, the wine may be diluted with grape juice. (One who cannot drink wine may use grape juice alone.) One drinks a cup of wine four times during the Seder:

  1. At the conclusion of kiddush.
  2. After telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt, before eating the matzah ofMotzi Matzah.
  3. At the conclusion of the Grace After Meals.
  4. After reciting the Hallel.

It is preferable to drink the entire cup each time. However, it is sufficient to drink only the majority of each cup. How large a cup should be used? One that contains at least 3½ fluid ounces. The Bitter Herbs The bitter herbs are eaten once after the matzah (step 9 of the Seder), and then again with matzah in the Korech sandwich (step 10). How much bitter herbs should one eat each time? Three-quarters of an ounce (a little more than 7 grams). Either of two different types of bitter herbs may be used at the Seder, individually or in combination:

  1. Peeled and grated raw horseradish.
  2. Romaine lettuce. [Some suggest that the stalks be used rather than the leafy parts, because of the difficulty in properly examining and ridding the leafy parts of commonly present tiny insects.] Three-quarters of an ounce of stalks covers an area 3″ × 5″.

Click here to learn more about the bitter herbs used on the Passover seder plate. Introduction to the Seder Plate Preparing the items for the Seder plate requires some time. It is best to prepare all the Seder foods before the onset of the holiday, in order to avoid halachic questions. Three matzot are placed on top of each other on a plate or napkin, and then covered. (Some also have the custom to separate the matzot from each other with interleaved plates, napkins or the like.) The matzot are symbolic of the three castes of Jews: Priests, Levites, and Israelites. They also commemorate the three measures of fine flour that Abraham told Sarah to bake into matzah when they were visited by the three angels (Genesis 18:6). On a practical level, three matzot are needed so that when we break the middle matzah, we are still left with two whole ones to pronounce the hamotzi blessing (as required on Shabbat and holidays). On a cloth or plate placed above the three matzot, we place the following items: The Shank Bone A piece of roasted meat represents the lamb that was the special Paschal sacrifice on the eve of the exodus from Egypt, and annually, on the afternoon before Passover, in the Holy Temple. Since we can’t offer the Paschal sacrifice in the absence of the Holy Temple, we take care to use something that is relatively dissimilar to the actual offering. Accordingly, many communities have the custom to use a roasted chicken neck or the like. Preparation: Roast the neck on all sides over an open fire on the stove. Afterwards, some have the custom to remove the majority of the meat of the neck. Role in the Seder: The shank bone is not eaten. After the meal it is refrigerated, and used a second time on the Seder plate the following night. The Egg A hard-boiled egg represents the holiday offering brought in the days of the Holy Temple. The meat of this animal constituted the main part of the Passover meal. Preparation: Boil one egg per Seder plate, and possibly more for use during the meal. Role in the Seder: Place one egg on each plate. As soon as the actual meal is about to begin, remove the egg from the Seder plate and use during the meal. A popular way of eating these eggs is to chop and mix them with the saltwater which was set on the table. The eggs prepared this way are then served as an appetizer before the fish. The Bitter Herbs Bitter herbs (maror) remind us of the bitterness of the slavery of our forefathers in Egypt. Fresh grated horseradish, romaine lettuce, and endive are the most common choices. Preparation: This must be done before the holiday begins. Peel the raw horseradish roots, and rinse them off well. Note: Dry the roots very carefully, since they will be eaten with the matzah later on for the korech sandwich; to avoidgebrokts, not even a drop of water should be left on the horseradish. Next, grate the horseradish with a hand grater or electric grinder. (Whoever will be grating the horseradish will begin to shed copious tears or cough a lot. Covering the face with a cloth from the eyes downwards helps prevent inhalation of the strong, bitter odor.) The lettuce or endive leaves must be washed, carefully checked for insects, and thoroughly dried. You can instead use just the stalks, which are easier to clean and check. Place the horseradish on the Seder plate, on top of a few cleaned, dried leaves of romaine lettuce. Role in the Seder: After the recital of most of the haggadah comes the ritual handwashing. Then matzah is eaten, followed by some maror, followed in turn by a sandwich of matzah and maror. The Paste A mixture of apples, nuts and wine which resembles the mortar and brick made by the Jews when they toiled for Pharaoh. Preparation: Shell walnuts and peel apples and chop finely. Mix together and add a small amount of wine. Role in the Seder: This is used as a type of relish into which the maror is dipped (and then shaken off) before eating. The Vegetable A non-bitter root vegetable alludes to the backbreaking work of the Jews as slaves. The Hebrew letters of the word karpas can be arranged to spell “perech samech.” Perech means backbreaking work, and samech is numerically equivalent to 60, referring to 60 myriads, equaling 600,000, which was the number of Jewish males over 20 years of age who were enslaved in Egypt. Preparation: Peel an onion or boiled potato. Cut off a slice and place on Seder plate. On the table, next to the Seder plate, place a small bowl of salted water. Role in the Seder: After recital of kiddush, the family goes to the sink and ritually washes hands, but without saying the usual blessing. Then the head of the household cuts a small piece of the root vegetable used, dips it in saltwater, and gives each person at the table a very small piece over which they say the appropriate blessing. Care should be taken that each person eats less than 17 grams (about ½ ounce). The Lettuce The lettuce symbolizes the bitter enslavement of our fathers in Egypt. The leaves of romaine lettuce are not bitter, but the stem, when left to grow in the ground, turns hard and bitter. So it was with our enslavement in Egypt. At first the deceitful approach of Pharaoh was soft and sensible, and the work was done voluntarily and even for pay. Gradually, it evolved into forced and cruel labor. Preparation: Romaine lettuce is often very sandy. Wash each of the leaves separately, checking very carefully for insects. (Pat gently with a towel and let sit until completely dry, so that there will be no moisture to come in contact with the matzah.) Depending on how much romaine lettuce is needed, it can take several hours to prepare. This task should be completed before candle-lighting time on the first night. Prepare enough leaves for both nights and store in the refrigerator. Soaking of the romaine leaves may not be done on the holiday. Role in the Seder: The lettuce is used in conjunction with horseradish. It is used when eating the maror and when eating the matzah-and-maror sandwich. Place the leaves in two piles on the Seder plate, one under the maror and one separately at the bottom. Keep a stack of extra cleaned leaves handy in the refrigerator in case additional leaves are needed. The Seder Service in a Nutshell Click here for a more detailed Seder wizard, and here for a spiritual guide to the Seder. In Our Forefathers’ Footsteps At the Seder, every person should see himself as if he were going out of Egypt. Beginning with our Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we recount the Jewish people’s descent into Egypt and recall their suffering and persecution. We are with them as G‑d sends the Ten Plagues to punish Pharaoh and his nation, and follow along as they leave Egypt and cross the Sea of Reeds. We witness the miraculous hand of G‑d as the waters part to allow the Israelites to pass, then return to inundate the Egyptian legions. Kadesh—the Benediction The Seder service begins with the recitation of kiddush, proclaiming the holiness of the holiday. This is done over a cup of wine, the first of the four cups we will drink (while reclining) at the Seder. The Four Cups of Wine Why four cups? The Torah uses four expressions of freedom or deliverance in connection with our liberation from Egypt (see Exodus 6:6–7). Also, the Children of Israel had four great merits even while in exile: (1) They did not change their Hebrew names; (2) they continued to speak their own language, Hebrew; (3) they remained highly moral; (4) they remained loyal to one another. Wine is used because it is a symbol of joy and happiness. Why We Recline When drinking the four cups and eating the matzah, we lean on our left side to accentuate the fact that we are free people. In ancient times only free people had the luxury of reclining while eating. Urchatz—Purification We wash our hands in the usual, ritually prescribed manner as is done before a meal, but without the customary blessing. The next step in the Seder, Karpas, requires dipping food into water, which in turn mandates, according to Jewish law, that either the food be eaten with a utensil or that one’s hands be purified by washing. On the Seder eve we choose the less common observance to arouse the child’s curiosity. Karpas—the “Appetizer” A small piece of onion or boiled potato is dipped into saltwater and eaten (after reciting the blessing over vegetables). Dipping the karpas in saltwater is an act of pleasure and freedom, which further arouses the child’s curiosity. The Hebrew word karpas, when read backwards, alludes to the backbreaking labor performed by the 600,000 Jews in Egypt. [Samech has the numerical equivalent of 60 (representing 60 times 10,000), while the last three Hebrew letters spell perech, hard work.] The saltwater represents the tears of our ancestors in Egypt. Yachatz—Breaking the Matzah The middle matzah on the Seder plate is broken in two. The larger part is put aside for later use as the afikoman. This unusual action not only attracts the child’s attention once again, but also recalls G‑d’s splitting of the Sea of Reeds to allow the Children of Israel to cross on dry land. The smaller part of the middle matzah is returned to the Seder plate. This broken middle matzah symbolizes humility, and will be eaten later as the “bread of poverty.” Maggid—the Haggadah At this point, the poor are invited to join the Seder. The Seder tray is moved aside, a second cup of wine is poured, and the child, who by now is bursting with curiosity, asks the time-honored question: “Mah nishtanah ha-lailah hazeh mikol ha-leilot? Why is this night different from all other nights?” Why only matzah? Why the dipping? Why the bitter herbs? Why are we relaxing and leaning on cushions as if we were kings? The child’s questioning triggers one of the most significant mitzvot of Passover, which is the highlight of the Seder ceremony: the haggadah, telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The answer includes a brief review of history, a description of the suffering imposed upon the Israelites, a listing of the plagues visited on the Egyptians, and an enumeration of the miracles performed by the Almighty for the redemption of His people. Rochtzah—Washing Before the Meal After concluding the first part of the haggadah by drinking the second cup of wine (while reclining), the hands are washed again, this time with the customary blessings, as is usually done before eating bread. Motzi Matzah—We Eat the Matzah Taking hold of the three matzot (with the broken one between the two whole ones), recite the customary blessing before bread. Then, letting the bottom matzah drop back onto the plate, and holding the top whole matzah with the broken middle one, recite the special blessing “al achilat matzah.” Then break at least one ounce from each matzah and eat the two pieces together, while reclining. Maror—the Bitter Herbs Take at least one ounce of the bitter herbs. Dip it in the charoset, then shake the latter off and make the blessing “al achilat maror.” Eat without reclining. Korech—the Sandwich In keeping with the custom instituted by Hillel, the great Talmudic sage, a sandwich of matzah and maror is eaten. Break off two pieces of the bottom matzah, which together should be at least one ounce. Again, take at least one ounce of bitter herbs and dip them in the charoset. Place this between the two pieces of matzah, say “kein asah Hillel . . .” and eat the sandwich while reclining. Shulchan Orech—the Feast The holiday meal is now served. We begin the meal with a hard-boiled egg dipped into saltwater. A rabbi was once asked why Jews eat eggs on Passover. “Because eggs symbolize the Jew,” the rabbi answered. “The more an egg is burned or boiled, the harder it gets.” Note: The chicken neck is not eaten at the Seder. Tzafun—Out of Hiding After the meal, the half-matzah which had been “hidden,” set aside for the afikoman(“dessert”), is taken out and eaten. It symbolizes the Paschal lamb, which was eaten at the end of the meal. Everyone should eat at least 1½ ounces of matzah, reclining, before midnight. After eating the afikoman, we do not eat or drink anything except for the two remaining cups of wine. Berach—Blessings After the Meal A third cup of wine is filled and Grace is recited. After the Grace we recite the blessing over wine and drink the third cup while reclining. Now we fill the cup of Elijah and our own cups with wine. We open the door and recite the passage which is an invitation to the Prophet Elijah, the harbinger of the coming of Moshiach, our righteous Messiah. Hallel—Songs of Praise At this point, having recognized the Almighty and His unique guidance of the Jewish people, we go still further and sing His praises as L‑rd of the entire universe. After reciting the Hallel, we again recite the blessing over wine and drink the fourth cup, reclining. Nirtzah—Acceptance Having carried out the Seder service properly, we are sure that it has been well received by the Almighty. We then say “Leshanah haba’ah bee-rushalayim—Next year in Jerusalem.”

Russia: Ancient Jewish library welcomed to new home in Moscow

Russia: Ancient Jewish library welcomed to new home in Moscow

Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre as an important collection of ancient Jewish books, the Schneerson library, arrived on Thursday. The President familiarised himself with the most valuable parts of the collection, which contains some 12,000 books and 50,000 rare documents dating from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century.

The transfer follows years of debate with the New York City based Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic community who demand the return of the library. The movement argues they are the right owners of the books, as the author of the collection, Schneerson, headed the organisation after moving to the United States. However the transfer of the Schneerson library was welcomed by the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Berl Lazar, who called it a big day for Russian Jews.

Russia has maintained that it will keep the collection, saying that it is a state property and part of Russian culture. The matter got into the media spotlight in January after a US judge ordered Russia to pay $50,000 (€37,000) per day until it returns the library. The decision to move the collection to Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre was proposed by Putin himself this year during a meeting of the Presidential Council for Interethnic Relations.

Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Centre of Tolerance was opened in November 2012, with Israeli President Shimon Peres travelling to Moscow for its inauguration. It features several interactive displays regarding the Jewish peoples’ long and tumultuous place in Russian history. Now home to the the Schneerson library collection, the museum’s new library department operates as a part of the Russian State Library.

Indian Doctor converts to Judaism – Chabad

In a powerful echo of the Biblical story of the patriarch Abraham, a Mumbai doctor smashed his father’s idols and eventually decided to become a Jew in the Land of Israel.

Dr. Aharon Abraham, left his position as Director of the ICU Medical Center at British Kennedy in Mumbai, India after terrorists murdered his spiritual guide and his wife, Rabbi Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg one year ago.

Abraham was born Vagirds Frads to a Hindu cleric who worshipped idols, and a mother who prepared food for them. As did the Biblical Abraham, young Vagirds could not understand how his father could honor a man-made statue, nor why his mother would cook for them. “Sometimes I eat it in secret,” he confided in an article that appeared in Hebrew in Sichat HaShavuah.

Unlike the patriarch, however, he waited until after graduating high school to confront his father, asking how he could believe “such nonsense.” But when there was no reply, his anger led him to take a hammer and smash the idols, exactly as Abraham had done. “The gods are angry!” his father shouted at him, he recounted, and recalled his reply: “If they’re angry, let them do something, reconstruct themselves…”

It was while studying medicine at the University of Mumbai that he first read a Bible, given to him by Christian students. Amazed, he read the story of Abraham and many others. “A new world opened before me,” he said.

The woman he married, a nurse, was equally interested in his Bible studies, and after their wedding the couple changed their family name to “Abraham,” to honor the patriarch. Vagirds became Aaron, because “the priest was a wonderful person, full of glory,” he explained.

Eventually the couple decided to convert, and began studying Judaism in earnest with Rabbi Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg, Chabad emmissaries to Mumbai.

“Our whole life centered around the Chabad House,” said Abraham. “It was the only place where we could get kosher food. Gabi and Rivky were our guides, we did not move without them. We began a process of true conversion and found the extraordinary beauty of the Torah commandments.”

It was the brutal murder of the Holtzbergs and their four guests at the Nariman Chabad House that changed their lives forever, however. “They took away my Master… But what we learned from Gabi and Rivki will accompany us and our children forever.”

This week, the couple completed their conversion and remarried in a truly kosher Jewish ceremony at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron, on the first anniversary of the murder of their friends and spiritual guides, Gabi and Rivky.

The couple’s three children also have new names as well: Sarah, Shmuel Gavriel, and Sharonah Rivka, in memory of the matriarch Sarah, wife of Abraham, and to forever keep alive the memories of Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg.

French Jews Fear Far Right: Europe’s largest Jewish community concerned by rise of Le Pen

The Socialist government has launched a cultural battle against the National Front, which it considers to be a danger for the French Republic, a point of view shared by the Jewish community, which sees in the rise of the Far Right a painful reminder of the 1930s which saw Hitler come to power.

“גם אם אני צריך למות,” הוא הפציר, “תן לי למות בכבוד, זה כל מה שאני מבקש.

27.07.2015 אורלי וגיא, ערוץ 10 27/7/15 סערת הנער שמתנגד לטיפול נגד סרטן: “תנו למות בשקט. בואו תפגינו בשבילי למען שחרורי מהטיפולים בכפייה”. הנער אומר: “עם ישראל היקרים, אני מבקש מכל מי שיכול לבוא להפגין כאן, בכניסה לבית החולים רמב”ם בחיפה, לגבי הטיפול בכפייה שרוצים לעשות לי וכל מי שיש לו אפשרות לבוא, שיבוא ויפגין כאן, שלא ייתנו לי טיפול כפייתי באזיקים. גם אם אני צריך למות, תנו לי למות בכבוד. זו כל הבקשה שלי”. א’ בן ה- 16 שברח מבית החולים כיוון שסירב לקבל טיפולים כימותרפיים ממחלת הסרטן פונה לציבור ומבקש ממנו להפגין איתו נגד החזקתו בכפייה. כתבנו אלי לוי מדווח, כי כל בקשתו היא לאפשר לו לחזור לביתו, למשפחתו ולחבריו, ולנהל חיים נורמליים בלי טיפולים. — ההפגנה היא היום בשעה 18:00 ברחבת בית חולים רמב”ם חיפה. אתם בעצם קוראים לציבור לבוא ולהפגין למען מה? עורך דין אפרים דמרי: בקשתו של הנער, זה מכיוון שהוא עבר ועדיין רוצים להעביר אותו טיפולים כימותרפיים בכפייה. זאת אומרת עצם הטיפול שלו בבית החולים הוא במסגרת צו של בית המשפט, בהוראת שופט לטפל בו בכפייה מוחלטת. זאת אומרת לא נתנו לו את זכות הבחירה או לא שמעו אותו. המערכת הייתה מאוד אטומה בכל מה שקרה סביב הנער הזה. הזעקה שלו: “בואו תשמיעו את קולכם במקומי”. — אגב, אני חושב שברור לכולם שטיפול כימותרפי בכפייה לא יכול להתנהל כי זה טיפול ארוך טווח. זאת אומרת זה לא טיפול חד פעמי שאפשר לטשטש אותו. עו”ד דמרי: בגלל התערבות התקשורת. עד לפני שהתערבתם העניקו לו את הטיפול בכפייה. אני אומר את זה בשם המשפחה. — אתה טוען שבזכות המהומה התקשורתית הופסקו הטיפולים בכפייה? עו”ד דמרי: בוודאי. — איזה טיפול בכפייה כבר היה? עו”ד דמרי: כל מהלך הטיפול של החודש וחצי האחרונים הכימותרפיים, הוא כבר עבר שני סדרות של טיפולים וזה הטיפול השלישי הסדרה השלישית בטיפול, כי הטיפולים האחרונים הצליחו חלקית. — והוא לא רוצה להמשיך את זה כי זה עשה לו דברים נוראיים? עו”ד דמרי: מה ששבר את הנער עצמו שבעקבות הטיפול האחרון לפני שבוע וחצי בערך, הוא קיבל כנראה מנה גדושה של חומר והוא איבד את הכרתו והוא אושפז במחלקה לטיפול נמרץ בבית החולים רמב”ם בחיפה. לאחר שייצבו את מצבו החזירו אותו חזרה לאותו חדר ורצו להמשיך בטיפול כרגיל. — האם הוא מבין שאם הוא לא יקבל טיפול כימותרפי כפי שאומרים הרופאים הוא יכול לסיים את חייו, הוא הבין את המשמעות של זה? עו”ד דמרי: הוא מבין אבל הוא גם מבין דבר אחד שהסיכוי להירפא מהטיפול לדבריהם של אותם רופאים הוא נמוך מ- 50%. http://demri-law.com

Upshernish Jewish Traditional Hair Cutting Ceremony

A deeper explanation: Major mystic acts on the physical plane of human existence are defining milestones that imprint on the life of a Jew. At birth, the Holy Act of Circumcision brings him into a covenant with the heritage of Abraham. The Kabalah explains that many “evil forces” hover around a developing baby and toddler, the so-called “evil eye”, and that the way to confound these forces is to leave the natural growth of hair untouched, and thus the gender of the toddler is disguised. At precisely the Third Year the hair is cut short (Opshernish), and the child, who during his last two years heard comments like “what a cute girl !”, and “what is it, a boy or a girl?”, is now given a Kipah and Tzit-tzit, and asked “What are you, a boy or a girl?” He looks in the mirror and responds: I AM A BOY ! At this moment, Gender Definition and Identification takes solid root in his consciousness. He is truly a boy now, in the eyes of his family and friends. (The female child, according to Jewish mystical awarenes, is bestowed a soul that functions in a higher spiritual domain, and is not beset with the “confounding” forces attacking her gender. She tends to grow in femeninity and identifies solidly with her mother.) The importance of this milestone cannot be underestimated for the Jewish community! (His next milestone will be at the Thirteenth Year, when Responsability for his Actions is established in his consciousness.)

VP Biden Quotes Lubavitcher Rebbe at New American Jewish History Museum

Philadelphia, PA – Drawn by the chance to celebrate 350 years of American Jewish history at the newest addition to the most historic square mile in the nation’s first capital, hundreds of people from across the country descended on Philadelphia last month, to hear Vice President Joseph Biden announce that a new museum’s Jewish stories were, in fact, manifestations of distinctly American ideals. “In telling the story of the American Jewish experience, this museum in my view, tells the story of America’s identity,” Biden said Sunday at festivities in front of the new $150 million home of the National Museum of American Jewish History. In hailing the contributions of a host of American Jews, Biden — a Scranton, Pa., native who represented neighboring Delaware in the U.S. Senate before ascending to the White House — quoted from a diary entry written by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, upon his 1940 departure from Lisbon, Portugal, and much-awaited arrival in the United States. The diary page is on permanent display in the museum’s “Only in America” exhibit, along with two other items connected to the Chabad-Lubavitch leader. The Rebbe taught that “every living thing, and especially living persons, must not remain static, but [they are] expected to grow from strength to strength,” stated Biden, they “must always add even if [they have] already achieved good things and holy things. [They] should never be satisfied with what was achieved yesterday, no matter how perfect or good it was.” Adding that the museum, “gives all of us the opportunity to make sure that we don’t remain static,” the Vice President emphasized that more can always be done to perfect the world. at Mark 9:07. quotes the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Brooklyn Landlords Arrested for Allegedly Forcing Out Rent Stabilized Tenants

16.04.2015 JewsOnTelevision BUSHWICK – A pair of Brooklyn brothers accused of forcing long-term rent-stabilized tenants out of their apartments was arrested and arraigned today. District Attorney Ken Thompson says that brothers Joel and Aaron Israel destroyed their tenants’ apartments and made them unlivable, forcing the tenants out of their rent-stabilized homes. Thompson says that the two landlords destroyed the apartments so that they could put them on the market at much higher rates. He says that the tenants in the Israels’ building on Linden Street were living in horrible conditions. “Our landlord destroyed our kitchen and bathroom,” said tenant Michelle Crespo. “For 18 months, we had to use other people’s bathrooms, including public facilities as well.” Both men pleaded not guilty in court. The judge ordered a $50,000 cash bail for Joel Israel and a $25,000 cash bail for Aaron Israel. They are due back in court on June 18.

The 21st day of Kislev is celebrated annual by Satmar chasidim worldwide as the day R’ Yoel Teitelbaum Zt’l the founder of Satmar Chasidis in America, escaped from Hungary and this year marks the 67th anniversary of the Grand Rebbe’s escape from the Nazis. R’ Teitelbaum was among over 1600 people who were transported out of Hungary by train due to the efforts of Rudolf Kastner, one of the leaders of Budapest’s Vaadat Ezra V’Hatzalah, who brokered a deal with Adolph Eichmann to let the passengers leave in exchange for a large sum of money, diamonds and gold. While Eichmann reneged on the deal and had the train sent to Bergen Belsen, the train was finally released after four months of negotiations and the passengers finally obtained their freedom when they arrived in Switzerland. כ”א כסלו יום ההצלה של כ”ק מרן הרה”ק בעל הדברי יואל מסאטמאר זיע”א מציפורני הנאצים ימ”ש התאספו רבבות חסידי סאטמאר מכל רחבי ארה”ב בראשות כ”ק אדמו”ר מסאטמאר שליט”א לציין ולהודות לה’ יתברך על חסדו הגדול

Andy Groneman and Mendel Segal were here with more on the inaugural Kosher BBQ Competition — which is similar to any other BBQ competition, but all smokers and utensils will be provided to the competing teams to abide by kosher rules.

Keeping it Kosher in LA’s Kosher Corridor: Soul Food

In this episode of Soul Food, our host Kiran Deol heads over to LA’s Kosher Corridor to get wise to the ways one can keep it kosher. She gets schooled by the local butcher, and discovers that today’s kosher food and drink is much more than just matzo balls and sweet, syrupy wine. Kosher cuisine can be contemporary, or really any style of food—be it burritos or a lamb belly “bacon” sandwich with homemade sriracha—as long as one follows strict kosher guidelines. Kiran’s exploration of where the spirit meets the stomach ends with an insightful invite for a Friday night sampling of a Shabbat dinner.

Krula Camp Tish B’Av Play: Churban Habayis

28.07.2015 צפו בפעילות המיוחדת במחנה ‘נחלת צבי’ קראלי שבהרי הקטסקיל שם למדו התלמידים באופן חי ומוחשי על סדר העבודה שהיה בזמן שבית המקדש היה קיים: בעוד הילדים ה”כהנים” עסוקים בעבודה בהדלקת המנורה והקרבת הקרבנות, הגיעו הילדים ה”רומאים” והציתו אש בכותל העזרה שנשרף עד היסוד. ה”גולים” ישבו לארץ ובכו על החורבן וכל המשתתפים במחנה נמס לבבם לנוכח המחזה שהטעימם מעין הצער הגדול שהיה בעת חורבן הבית Tu B’Av From Wikipedia, Tu B’Av (Hebrew: ט”ו באב, the fifteenth of the month Av) is a minor Jewish holiday. In modern-day Israel, it is celebrated as a holiday of love (Hebrew: חג האהבה‎, Hag HaAhava), similar to Valentine’s Day.[1] It has been said to be a “great day for weddings” According to the Mishna, Tu B’Av was a joyous holiday in the days of the Temple in Jerusalem, marking the beginning of the grape harvest. Yom Kippur marked the end of the grape harvest. On both dates, the unmarried girls of Jerusalem dressed in white garments, which they borrowed,[2] and went out to dance in the vineyards (Babylonian Talmud, tractate Ta’anit 30b-31a).[3] That same section in the Talmud states that there were no holy days as happy for the Jews as Tu B’Av and Yom Kippur.[4] The holiday celebrated the wood-offering brought in the temple (see Nehemiah 10:35). Josephus refers to it as the Feast of Xylophory (“Wood-bearing”).[5] Photo by Wikipedia read more… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_B%27Av

Dr Maurice Mizrahi – The secrets of Jewish survival (Tish’a b’Av)

22.07.2015 A few days from now is Tish’a b’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. Many catastrophes befell the Jews on that day, the Ninth of Av, including the destruction of the two temples in Jerusalem. Each of these tragedies, by itself, could have led to the disappearance of Judaism. But none did. Why? What made the Jews survive as a distinct people, when so many other civilizations have disappeared? [captions available — click on “cc”]

Orthodox Jews Taking Jiu Jitsu Lessons for Self Defense

21.07.2015 A new version of martial arts is being taught to and practiced by Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. CBS2’s Scott Rapoport talked to a man who has been called the “most dangerous Jew in NYC” — Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. Former NYC probation officers and Washington Heights native Steve Isaak, 67, has developed a personalized style of martial arts called Shima Juijitsu. He’s been teaching it for more than 40 years to a devoted following of the city’s most observant, Orthodox Jews, in a Brighton Beach studio. Part of his mission is for it to be self-defense from anti-semetism. “Everyone need self-defense but they need it more than most, based on the history of Jewish people,” Isaak said. His students come in all shapes, sizes, ages and sexes. There are women, too, who want to learn to defend themselves — like Chavi Charlap. And what does she get from the class? “I get confidence,” Charlap replied. Because they are Orthodox, the women train separately from the men. And though touching is traditionally verboten, some of his female students permit it during training, saying Isaak’s classes are conducted with respect to their Orthodox values. “If I’m in a life threatening situation and because of this I can save my life and other lives then it’s definitely worth it,” Charlap said. Isaak turned to martial arts as a young, 12-year-old boy after he says he was beaten up by two older kids. By the time he got to college, he was teaching self-defense. He opened his own martial arts school shortly after that. Isaak says the secret and power of Shima Juijitsu is that you don’t have to be athletic or powerful. That it is based on efficiency, not strength, Rapoport reported. The cerebral Sensai says he teaches his students a series of moves that can deflect and derail an attacker. His student Rabbi David Goldshyn with the Jewish Center Of Brighton Beach says it’s effective and necessary. “You don’t want to get into a fight every two seconds,” Goldshyn said. “But you also want to have the confidence that if something happens you can protect yourself.” Through the years, Isaak says he’s taught Shima Juijitsu to cops, prosecutors, judges and even some in Israel’s defense forces. Isaak says he now now lives in Myrtle Beach, but comes back to Brighton Beach every two weeks for 5 days at a time to teach his Orthodox students. He says his students demand it.

Howard Sterns Daughter Observes Shabbat

Strictly Kosher series

All rights belong to ITV. The Jewish community in Manchester is a kaleidoscope of tradition, religion and extravagance. This documentary film opens a window into their lives and shows a wide variety of ritual and celebrations. Strictly Kosher, filmed, produced and directed by Chris Malone, revolves around three families and their friends and paints a colourful picture of the juxtaposition between the many different personalities and levels of religious observance in Manchester’s Jewish community. It offers an insight into lifestyles which range from one extreme — traditional and strict – to the other — modern and extravagant – but are bound together by one faith. The film follows Bernette Clarke, a very lively and modern Orthodox Jewish mother of three. Bernette talks openly about her faith, explains the traditional approach her family has to the Sabbath and other Jewish festivals, and offers her views on the wider Jewish community. Joel Lever and his wife Joanne also allow the cameras into their lives. Joel’s family are traditionally Jewish by birth, but he admits they are not very religious. Joel puts his all into his fashion boutique ‘Mon Amie’ which is frequented by the Jewish ladies of Prestwich — by making the Jewish women the talk of the town, he feels he is serving the local community. 83-year-old Jack Aizenberg tells the ultimate rags to riches story. He was just eleven years old at the outbreak of the Second World War and his family were killed in Belzec Extermination camp in 1942 when he was just 14. Against the odds Jack survived and made his way to Manchester, England in 1945. Jack feels that religion is not as important as basic common humanity and does not practice all the requirements of the Jewish faith, but he’s a celebrated survivor venerated by the Jewish community in Manchester. Having made a successful career in the luggage trade, Jack is thrilled to have the money to throw his grandson a lavish Bar Mitzvah — a special moment caught on camera.

12.05.2015

Kindly donate here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ja…

4,000 years ago the father and mother of all Spirituality, Abraham and Sarah, set up the first JamShalom tent in the crossroads of ancient Canaan. Three Holy Chillers stopped by their tent for some great food and great company (and rumor has it that they also jammed up a storm), and the rest is history. Fast-forward to 1965: The Grateful Dead are born, and holy chilling tents are suddenly popping up on every crossroads across the country. Jump 44 more years to 2009, and PHISHalom sets up its first tent on Phish-Lot, bringing together the ancient Jewish traditions of hospitality and good food, joined with the love and family we first encountered on Dead-Lot. Six years later, and PHISHalom and JamShalom have become a familiar home to hundreds of fans at Phish concerts and music festivals, and the Golden Shore has become a regular destination for Holy Chillers who find their way to Israel. Look for us on the road at your favorite concerts and festivals this summer, and stop by for a holy chill, some great food, an open jam, and endless friendship

Farewell to Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival 2014

2014 brought the winds of war to our region, throwing a shadow over the festival that threated to unravel the delicate fabric and ideals upon which it is based. But despite this, international and local artists came to Jerusalem imbued with a sense of commitment and a renewed belief in the message that calls on the Middle East’ peoples to open their hearts and allow music to unite us. In what is now an annual tradition, the festival offers unique experiences that bring together international and Israeli artists in performances under a canopy of stars, opposite Jerusalem’s ancient walls and in houses of prayer. Each year we invite audiences to take part in “A Night Stroll,” a magical white night at the Tower of David comprising performances, ceremonies, some whispering and a series of “Testimony Encounters” — guided tours that trace the sacred sounds that play year-round in Jerusalem.

17.05.2015 The holiday known as ‘Jerusalem Day’ is observed in Israel every year on the Hebrew date of Iyar 28 – the day corresponding with June 7th, 1967 on which the city of Jerusalem was liberated and united by the paratrooper brigade of the Israel Defense Forces in the Six Day War. 48 years later to the day, on May 17th, 2015, a crowd numbering 1,000 Jews converged at the gate of the Temple Mount, eager to ascend the mountain in joyous acknowledgment of the miraculous return of the city to Jewish sovereignty and in fulfillment of the Biblical commandment to revere the place of the Holy Temple. Most of all, they came to pray at the holy site. The discriminatory practices and self-styled, anti-democratic ‘rules’ of the police prevented Jewish prayer, but once again fully allowed the demonic incitement of crowds of Muslim thugs and mercenaries who dogged every step of the Jewish pilgrims on the Mount and generally did their best to cause the Jews misery. And while the Jewish worshipers waited on line in the sun for as long as three hours for a chance to ascend even briefly on this special day, many were turned away in disappointment. But the Jews who gathered that morning at the Mugrabi Gate waiting to ascend to the Temple Mount had the honor of welcoming and hearing a hero in their midst: renowned Torah scholar Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder and president of the Temple Institute, was himself an IDF paratrooper who fought for the liberation of the Temple Mount on this very day, 48 years ago. The rabbi addressed the enthusiastic crowd and spoke of his experiences as a soldier in this very spot on that fateful day. Rabbi Ariel recalled his fallen comrades who gave their lives for the return of the Temple Mount to the Jewish people, and encouraged the assembled to continue in the heroes’ footsteps by demonstrating Jewish presence and rightful ownership of the Mount.

Jerusalem of Gold – Yerushalayim shel Zahav -Ofra Haza- with English Lyrics

“Jerusalem of Gold” (Hebrew: ירושלים של זהב‎, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav) is a popular Israeli song written by Naomi Shemer in 1967. The original song described the Jewish people’s 2000-year longing to return to Jerusalem; Shemer added a final verse after the Six-Day War to celebrate Jerusalem’s unification under Israeli control. At that time, the Old City was under Jordanian rule; Jews had been barred from entering, and many holy sites had been desecrated. Only three weeks after the song was published, the Six-Day War broke out. The song was the battle cry and morale booster of the Israeli troops. Shemer even sang it for them before the war and festival, making them among the first in the world to hear it. On 7 June, the Israel Defense Forces captured the eastern part of Jerusalem and the Old City from the Jordanians. When Shemer heard the paratroopers singing “Jerusalem of Gold” at the Western Wall, she wrote a final verse, reversing the phrases of lamentation found in the second verse. The line about shofars sounding from the Temple Mount is a reference to an event that actually took place on 7 June. This beautiful version is from the late OFRA HAZA.

The Festival of Shavuot

Intimately connected to the land of Israel, Shavuot is the festival of the bringing of the first-fruits to the Holy Temple. Shavuot is also the anniversary of the Sinai revelation and the receiving of Torah by Israel, and since the destruction of the Holy Temple the emphasis of Shavuot has been Torah study. Ultimately, Torah study and the bringing of the first-fruits are both expressions of the centrality of Torah in our lives. When we build the Holy Temple we best exemplify the fulfillment of Torah in this world by the bringing of the first-fruits.

Prominent NY Rabbi Arthur Schneier Honored With Papal Knighthood

03.05.2015 Lenny Bruce famously said that even a Catholic in New York is Jewish, but that didn’t stop one of the city’s most prominent Jewish leaders from accepting a touch of the Holy See on Monday. Rabbi Arthur Schneier of Manhattan’s Park East Synagogue was knighted and made a member of the Papal Order of St. Sylvester at a ceremony on the Upper East Side, joining luminaries such as industrialist Oskar Schindler and comedian Bob Hope who have held the title. “It’s Pope Francis’ very touching and tender way of confirming [Rabbi Schneier] and the good works that he’s done on behalf of religious freedom, international peace and justice,” said longtime pal and neighbor Cardinal Timothy Dolan, head of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. The cardinal grinned broadly as he pinned the order’s gold cross to the 84-year-old Holocaust survivor’s lapel. “It’s an honor.” During his career, Rabbi Schneier campaigned vigorously alongside other faith leaders for greater religious freedom and tolerance, as well as helping to build ties between Jews and Roman Catholics following World War II. “In 1965, in the height of religious persecution in the Soviet Union, I mobilized with Robert Kennedy religious leaders of all faiths in an appeal to our first religious freedom mission to Moscow, but via Rome,” Rabbi Schneier said. “We need to strive together…for a world of mutual acceptance—not tolerance, acceptance.” Rabbi Schneier has been associated with the Park East Synagogue since 1962. After the ceremony, the new knight shared a Champagne toast with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Mayor David Dinkins and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, as well as half a dozen of the city’s most prominent religious leaders. “I’m here to pay tribute to a dear friend and a good leader,” Dr. Kissinger said. “He’s contributed to the solution of one our great problems,” promoting peace between the major world faiths. The knighthood, which may be bestowed on Catholics and non-Catholics alike, is intended to honor significant contributions to humanity. The ancient order’s origin is somewhat murky, though it apparently was first intended to honor lay Catholics who showed intense devotion to the church. In 1905, Pope Pius X changed the Order of St. Sylvester to include non-Catholic honorees, separating it from the so-called Golden Militia, of which it had previously been a part. In addition to the gold cross, the official St. Sylvester regalia includes a red-and-black uniform and a sword. “You mentioned about my getting a sword? I have a problem with a sword, though,” Rabbi Schneier insisted. “I’m for peace!” “Turn it into a plowshare,” Cardinal Dolan suggested.

Jerusalem Day

From Wikipedia Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים‎, Yom Yerushalayim) is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalemand the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. The day is officially marked by state ceremonies and memorial services. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to mark the regaining of access to the Western Wall.[1] While the day has lost its significance for most secular Israelis,[2][3][4] the day is still very much celebrated by Israel’s Religious Zionist community[5][6] with parades and additional prayers in the synagogue.Photo by Wikipedia Read More Button--orange

A new anti-Semitism? Why thousands of Jewish citizens are leaving France

Some Jewish citizens in France say there is a rising tide of a new, more dangerous anti-Semitism in the country. In turn, thousands are leaving for Israel and other countries. In an effort to reassure Jewish people in France that they are safe, the government has taken strict measures against anti-Semitic demonstrations. Special correspondent Martin Seemungal reports.

Why have anti-Semitic attacks on French Jews nearly doubled in one year?

08.02.2015 Last month’s terror attack at a Kosher supermarket in Paris called attention to rising anti-Semitism in France.

Turkey’s Great Synagogue inaugurated after restoration

26.03.2015 The Great Synagogue, which is considered the third largest in the Europe and the largest in Turkey, has been inaugurated for worship after a-four-year-long restoration in northwestern Edirne province of Turkey on March 26, 2015. The synagogue was in use until 1983 and the restoration was launched by Turkey’s General Directorate of Foundations. (Footage by Salih Baran / Anadolu Agency)

Historical synagogue in Turkey’s northwest to open soon

09.03.2015 A historical synagogue, the subject of an outcry due to a governor’s remarks to turn it into a museum, is waiting to be reopened for services at the end of the month. The Great Synagogue, in the northwestern province of Edirne, will open on March 26, after undergoing a four year restoration. Jewish community head, İshak İbrahimzadeh, who visited the synagogue before the opening ceremony, said the opening of the restored synagogue was a milestone that made him very happy. Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç and Turkey’s chief rabbi, İshak Haleva, will attend the opening, along with many other Jewish community members from both Turkey and abroad. As Europe’s second largest synagogue, the Edirne Synagogue was built in 1907 after a widespread fire in 1905 that burnt down 13 separate synagogues. The synagogue was constructed using the architectural model of Vienna’s Leopoldstadter Tempel and abandoned in 1983. The temple was transferred to Thrace University to be used as a museum after its restoration but after much criticism from the Jewish community in Turkey, the building was transferred back to the General Directorate for Foundations. Edirne Gov. Dursun Şahin created uproar when he told reporters on Nov. 21, 2014, that the synagogue would be turned into a museum, citing the recent Israeli raid on the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. “While those bandits blow winds of war inside al-Aqsa and slay Muslims, we build their synagogues,” Şahin said. Şahin later offered an “apology” to Haleva, claiming that his proposal to turn the synagogue into a museum as a reprisal for Israel’s policies over Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque “had no connection” to the Turkish Jewish community.

YOUR HOLIDAY GUIDE: Passover 5775 – 2015 (April 3-11, 2015)

Your Passover Guide – 2015

Editor’s NotePassover begins this year on Friday evening, April 3, 2015, and continues until nightfall, April 11, 2015. We bring you a brief overview of how and when to prepare your home for Passover, along with a daily holiday schedule for the entire holiday. If you have any further questions please consult your local orthodox rabbi or, in case you don’t have one, write to us atwww.chabad.org/asktherabbi.Please read this guide in its entirety before the beginning of the holiday. Some holiday items need pre-holiday “action.” We welcome you to print it and carry it with you in the days before Passover for easy reference, and to distribute this guide to whomever will benefit from it.

Operation Zero Chametz Passover is a holiday that mandates our complete involvement, not just during its eight days but for weeks before. Aside from the regular holiday obligations, we are also commanded (Exodus 13:3–7): “No leaven shall be eaten . . . For seven days you shall eat unleavened bread . . . and no leaven shall be seen of yours [in your possession].” We accomplish this by cleaning and inspecting our homes well before Passover, and gradually eliminating chametz from every room and crevice. This intensive cleaning takes place in Jewish homes throughout the world. What is Chametz? Chametz is any food product made from wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, or their derivatives, which has leavened (risen). Our sages have determined that flour from any of these five grains that comes in contact with water or moisture will leaven, unless fully baked within eighteen minutes. As we are commanded by the Torah, if a food contains even a trace of chametz, we don’t eat it, we don’t derive benefit from it, and we make sure not to have any of it in our possession for all the days of Passover. To be certain that a product is kosher for Passover, it must have rabbinical certification. Otherwise it is possible that it contains chametz ingredients, or traces of chametz if it was processed on the same equipment as chametz products. Thus, unless a product is certified Kosher for Passover, we consider it chametz, and make sure not to have it in our possession on Passover. Note: Matzah used all year round might be pure chametz, and not for Passover use. Only matzahs baked especially for Passover may be used on Passover. Kitniyot The medieval Jewish sages placed a ban on eating legumes (kitniyot) on Passover, because they are similar in texture to chametz—even bread can be made out of their flour—so people might assume that if, for example, cornbread can be eaten on Passover, wheat or rye bread can be eaten too. This prohibition includes rice, beans and corn. This injunction was unanimously accepted by Ashkenazic Jews; many Sephardic Jews, however, continue to eat kitniyot on Passover. If you are Sephardic, speak to your rabbi to determine your family and community tradition. The prohibition is only with regards to consumption ofkitniyot; there is no obligation, however, to destroy or sell kitniyot products before Passover. Getting Rid of Chametz Search and Destroy Any area where one can reasonably suspect that chametz might have been brought throughout the year must be thoroughly cleaned. This includes the home, office, cars, garage, etc. Check carefully to ensure that no crumb is left behind: check and clean desks, drawers, closets, clothing pockets (especially the children’s), pocketbooks, briefcases and attache cases, beds, dining and living room furniture, bookcases, etc. If You Can’t Destroy it, Sell It Chametz that you don’t want to destroy, and utensils used throughout the year (and not koshered for Passover), should be stored in closets or rooms which will be sealed for the duration of Passover. The chametz should be sold to a non-Jew through a rabbi.Click here to sell your chametz online. Preparing the Kitchen Every part of our homes is cleaned for Passover, but we pay special attention to the kitchen, because (a) that’s where most of our chametz hangs out during the year, and (b) we will be using our kitchens to prepare our Passover food. Dishes and Utensils Today, most Passover-savvy homes have a special set of dishes, silverware, pots, pans and other utensils for Passover use only. If necessary, certain year-round utensils can be used—provided they are koshered for Passover. This gets rather complex—you’ll need to consult a competent rabbi about your particular utensils, but you can click here for the basic koshering procedures. Stove Thoroughly clean and scour every part of the stove. Heat the oven to the highest temperature possible for 1–2 hours. Heat the grates and the iron parts of the stove (and the elements, if electric) until they are red-hot. It is suggested that the oven and the stove top should be covered with aluminum foil afterwards for the duration of Passover. Microwave Ovens Clean the oven thoroughly. Fill a completely clean container, that was not used for 24 hours, with water. Turn on the microwave and let it steam heavily. Turn it off and wipe out the inside. To use the microwave during Passover, use a flat, thick, microwave-safe object as a separation between the bottom of the oven and the cooking dish. When cooking or warming, the food should be covered on all sides. Sink For 24 hours before koshering the sink, do not pour hot water from chametz pots into it. Meticulously clean the sink, boil water in a clean pot which was not used for 24 hours, and pour three times onto every part of the sink, including the drain stopper. Then line the sink with foil or liner. Refrigerator, Freezer, Cupboards, Closets, Tables, and Counters Thoroughly clean and scrub them to remove any crumbs and residue. Afterwards, place a heavy covering over those surfaces that come into contact with hot food or utensils. Tablecloths and Napkins Launder without starch. Cars, Garages, etc. Vacuum your car or van; thoroughly clean your basement, garage, or any property you own. Special care should be taken with items you will be using, or rooms you will be accessing, during Passover. Passover Shopping While shopping for Passover we must be careful that the foods we buy are not only kosher, but are also kosher for Passover—that is, chametz-free. Starting “From Scratch” All fruits and vegetables, as well as all kosher cuts of meat and kosher fish, are kosher for Passover, provided they have been prepared in accordance with Jewish law and have not come into contact withchametz or chametz utensils. The prevailing custom in Ashkenazi communities is that on Passover we do not eat rice, millet, corn, mustard, legumes (beans, etc.) or food made from any of these. Commercially Prepared Products Today there are many kosher-for-Passover packaged foods available. However, care must be used to purchase only those packaged foods that have reliable rabbinical supervision which is valid for Passover. Obviously, all leavened foods made from—or that contain among their ingredients—wheat, barley, rye, oats, or spelt are actual chametz and are prohibited on Passover. Examples are bread, cake, cereal, spaghetti, beer and whiskey. Check That Medicine Cabinet! Many medicines, sprays, and cosmetics contain chametz. Consult a competent rabbi as to which ones may be used on Passover. The same applies to pet food. Click here to to purchase your Passover essentials from our store. The Passover Calendar—2015

Blessed are You, L‑rd our G‑d, King of the universe, who has granted us life, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this occasion. The Seder Ingredients Matzah, the “Food of Faith” When our forefathers left Egypt, they were in such a hurry that there was no time to wait for the dough to rise. They therefore ate matzah, unleavened bread. With only this food (but with great faith), our ancestors relied on the Almighty to provide sustenance for the entire Jewish nation—men, women and children. Each year, to remember this, we eat matzah on the first two nights of Pesach, thereby fulfilling the Torah’s commandment, “Matzot shall you eat . . .” The Humblest of Foods Matzah symbolizes faith. In contrast to leavened bread, matzah is not enriched with oil, honey or other substances. It consists only of flour and water, and is not allowed to rise. Similarly, the only “ingredients” for faith are humility and submission to G‑d, which come from recognizing our “nothingness” when compared with the infinite wisdom of the Creator. One of the holiday’s primary obligations is to eat matzah during the Seder. It is strongly recommended to use shmurah matzah to fulfill this commandment. Matzah is eaten three times during the Seder:

  1. After telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt (Maggid), washing our hands for bread (Rachtzah) and reciting the blessings (Motzi Matzah), 1¾ ounces of matzah are eaten.
  2. For the sandwich (Korech), ¾ of an ounce of matzah is eaten.
  3. For the afikoman at the end of the meal (Tzafun), a minimum of ¾ of an ounce (and ideally 1½ ounces) of matzah are eaten.

In each instance, the matzah should be eaten within 4 minutes. How much is one ounce of Matzah? Half a piece of shmurah matzah is generally one ounce. If store-bought matzot are used, the weight of the box of matzot divided by the number of pieces shows how much matzah is the equivalent of one ounce. Shmurah Matzah Shmurah means “watched,” and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing. The day chosen for the harvesting of the wheat is a clear, dry day. The moment it is harvested, the wheat is inspected to ensure that there is absolutely no moisture. From then on, careful watch is kept upon the grains as they are transported to the mill. The mill is meticulously inspected by rabbis and supervision professionals to ensure that every piece of equipment is absolutely clean and dry. After the wheat is milled, the flour is again guarded in its transportation to the bakery. Thus, from the moment of harvesting through the actual baking of the matzah, the flour is carefully watched to ensure against any contact with water. The water, too, is carefully guarded to prevent any contact with wheat or other grain. It is drawn the night before the baking, and kept pure until the moment it is mixed with the flour to bake the shmurah matzah. Also in the bakery itself, shmurah matzot are under strict supervision to avoid any possibility of leavening during the baking process. This intensive process and careful guarding gives the shmurah matzah an added infusion of faith and sanctity—in fact, as the matzah is being made, all those involved constantly repeat, “L’shem matzot mitzvah”—“We are doing this for the sake of the mitzvah of matzah.” Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to useshmurah matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate. Click to order your own shmurah matzah. Passover Wine For each of the four cups at the Seder, it is preferable to use undiluted wine. However, if needed, the wine may be diluted with grape juice. (One who cannot drink wine may use grape juice alone.) One drinks a cup of wine four times during the Seder:

  1. At the conclusion of kiddush.
  2. After telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt, before eating the matzah ofMotzi Matzah.
  3. At the conclusion of the Grace After Meals.
  4. After reciting the Hallel.

It is preferable to drink the entire cup each time. However, it is sufficient to drink only the majority of each cup. How large a cup should be used? One that contains at least 3½ fluid ounces. The Bitter Herbs The bitter herbs are eaten once after the matzah (step 9 of the Seder), and then again with matzah in the Korech sandwich (step 10). How much bitter herbs should one eat each time? Three-quarters of an ounce (a little more than 7 grams). Either of two different types of bitter herbs may be used at the Seder, individually or in combination:

  1. Peeled and grated raw horseradish.
  2. Romaine lettuce. [Some suggest that the stalks be used rather than the leafy parts, because of the difficulty in properly examining and ridding the leafy parts of commonly present tiny insects.] Three-quarters of an ounce of stalks covers an area 3″ × 5″.

Click here to learn more about the bitter herbs used on the Passover seder plate. Introduction to the Seder Plate Preparing the items for the Seder plate requires some time. It is best to prepare all the Seder foods before the onset of the holiday, in order to avoid halachic questions. Three matzot are placed on top of each other on a plate or napkin, and then covered. (Some also have the custom to separate the matzot from each other with interleaved plates, napkins or the like.) The matzot are symbolic of the three castes of Jews: Priests, Levites, and Israelites. They also commemorate the three measures of fine flour that Abraham told Sarah to bake into matzah when they were visited by the three angels (Genesis 18:6). On a practical level, three matzot are needed so that when we break the middle matzah, we are still left with two whole ones to pronounce the hamotzi blessing (as required on Shabbat and holidays). On a cloth or plate placed above the three matzot, we place the following items: The Shank Bone A piece of roasted meat represents the lamb that was the special Paschal sacrifice on the eve of the exodus from Egypt, and annually, on the afternoon before Passover, in the Holy Temple. Since we can’t offer the Paschal sacrifice in the absence of the Holy Temple, we take care to use something that is relatively dissimilar to the actual offering. Accordingly, many communities have the custom to use a roasted chicken neck or the like. Preparation: Roast the neck on all sides over an open fire on the stove. Afterwards, some have the custom to remove the majority of the meat of the neck. Role in the Seder: The shank bone is not eaten. After the meal it is refrigerated, and used a second time on the Seder plate the following night. The Egg A hard-boiled egg represents the holiday offering brought in the days of the Holy Temple. The meat of this animal constituted the main part of the Passover meal. Preparation: Boil one egg per Seder plate, and possibly more for use during the meal. Role in the Seder: Place one egg on each plate. As soon as the actual meal is about to begin, remove the egg from the Seder plate and use during the meal. A popular way of eating these eggs is to chop and mix them with the saltwater which was set on the table. The eggs prepared this way are then served as an appetizer before the fish. The Bitter Herbs Bitter herbs (maror) remind us of the bitterness of the slavery of our forefathers in Egypt. Fresh grated horseradish, romaine lettuce, and endive are the most common choices. Preparation: This must be done before the holiday begins. Peel the raw horseradish roots, and rinse them off well. Note: Dry the roots very carefully, since they will be eaten with the matzah later on for the korech sandwich; to avoidgebrokts, not even a drop of water should be left on the horseradish. Next, grate the horseradish with a hand grater or electric grinder. (Whoever will be grating the horseradish will begin to shed copious tears or cough a lot. Covering the face with a cloth from the eyes downwards helps prevent inhalation of the strong, bitter odor.) The lettuce or endive leaves must be washed, carefully checked for insects, and thoroughly dried. You can instead use just the stalks, which are easier to clean and check. Place the horseradish on the Seder plate, on top of a few cleaned, dried leaves of romaine lettuce. Role in the Seder: After the recital of most of the haggadah comes the ritual handwashing. Then matzah is eaten, followed by some maror, followed in turn by a sandwich of matzah and maror. The Paste A mixture of apples, nuts and wine which resembles the mortar and brick made by the Jews when they toiled for Pharaoh. Preparation: Shell walnuts and peel apples and chop finely. Mix together and add a small amount of wine. Role in the Seder: This is used as a type of relish into which the maror is dipped (and then shaken off) before eating. The Vegetable A non-bitter root vegetable alludes to the backbreaking work of the Jews as slaves. The Hebrew letters of the word karpas can be arranged to spell “perech samech.” Perech means backbreaking work, and samech is numerically equivalent to 60, referring to 60 myriads, equaling 600,000, which was the number of Jewish males over 20 years of age who were enslaved in Egypt. Preparation: Peel an onion or boiled potato. Cut off a slice and place on Seder plate. On the table, next to the Seder plate, place a small bowl of salted water. Role in the Seder: After recital of kiddush, the family goes to the sink and ritually washes hands, but without saying the usual blessing. Then the head of the household cuts a small piece of the root vegetable used, dips it in saltwater, and gives each person at the table a very small piece over which they say the appropriate blessing. Care should be taken that each person eats less than 17 grams (about ½ ounce). The Lettuce The lettuce symbolizes the bitter enslavement of our fathers in Egypt. The leaves of romaine lettuce are not bitter, but the stem, when left to grow in the ground, turns hard and bitter. So it was with our enslavement in Egypt. At first the deceitful approach of Pharaoh was soft and sensible, and the work was done voluntarily and even for pay. Gradually, it evolved into forced and cruel labor. Preparation: Romaine lettuce is often very sandy. Wash each of the leaves separately, checking very carefully for insects. (Pat gently with a towel and let sit until completely dry, so that there will be no moisture to come in contact with the matzah.) Depending on how much romaine lettuce is needed, it can take several hours to prepare. This task should be completed before candle-lighting time on the first night. Prepare enough leaves for both nights and store in the refrigerator. Soaking of the romaine leaves may not be done on the holiday. Role in the Seder: The lettuce is used in conjunction with horseradish. It is used when eating the maror and when eating the matzah-and-maror sandwich. Place the leaves in two piles on the Seder plate, one under the maror and one separately at the bottom. Keep a stack of extra cleaned leaves handy in the refrigerator in case additional leaves are needed. The Seder Service in a Nutshell Click here for a more detailed Seder wizard, and here for a spiritual guide to the Seder. In Our Forefathers’ Footsteps At the Seder, every person should see himself as if he were going out of Egypt. Beginning with our Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we recount the Jewish people’s descent into Egypt and recall their suffering and persecution. We are with them as G‑d sends the Ten Plagues to punish Pharaoh and his nation, and follow along as they leave Egypt and cross the Sea of Reeds. We witness the miraculous hand of G‑d as the waters part to allow the Israelites to pass, then return to inundate the Egyptian legions. Kadesh—the Benediction The Seder service begins with the recitation of kiddush, proclaiming the holiness of the holiday. This is done over a cup of wine, the first of the four cups we will drink (while reclining) at the Seder. The Four Cups of Wine Why four cups? The Torah uses four expressions of freedom or deliverance in connection with our liberation from Egypt (see Exodus 6:6–7). Also, the Children of Israel had four great merits even while in exile: (1) They did not change their Hebrew names; (2) they continued to speak their own language, Hebrew; (3) they remained highly moral; (4) they remained loyal to one another. Wine is used because it is a symbol of joy and happiness. Why We Recline When drinking the four cups and eating the matzah, we lean on our left side to accentuate the fact that we are free people. In ancient times only free people had the luxury of reclining while eating. Urchatz—Purification We wash our hands in the usual, ritually prescribed manner as is done before a meal, but without the customary blessing. The next step in the Seder, Karpas, requires dipping food into water, which in turn mandates, according to Jewish law, that either the food be eaten with a utensil or that one’s hands be purified by washing. On the Seder eve we choose the less common observance to arouse the child’s curiosity. Karpas—the “Appetizer” A small piece of onion or boiled potato is dipped into saltwater and eaten (after reciting the blessing over vegetables). Dipping the karpas in saltwater is an act of pleasure and freedom, which further arouses the child’s curiosity. The Hebrew word karpas, when read backwards, alludes to the backbreaking labor performed by the 600,000 Jews in Egypt. [Samech has the numerical equivalent of 60 (representing 60 times 10,000), while the last three Hebrew letters spell perech, hard work.] The saltwater represents the tears of our ancestors in Egypt. Yachatz—Breaking the Matzah The middle matzah on the Seder plate is broken in two. The larger part is put aside for later use as the afikoman. This unusual action not only attracts the child’s attention once again, but also recalls G‑d’s splitting of the Sea of Reeds to allow the Children of Israel to cross on dry land. The smaller part of the middle matzah is returned to the Seder plate. This broken middle matzah symbolizes humility, and will be eaten later as the “bread of poverty.” Maggid—the Haggadah At this point, the poor are invited to join the Seder. The Seder tray is moved aside, a second cup of wine is poured, and the child, who by now is bursting with curiosity, asks the time-honored question: “Mah nishtanah ha-lailah hazeh mikol ha-leilot? Why is this night different from all other nights?” Why only matzah? Why the dipping? Why the bitter herbs? Why are we relaxing and leaning on cushions as if we were kings? The child’s questioning triggers one of the most significant mitzvot of Passover, which is the highlight of the Seder ceremony: the haggadah, telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The answer includes a brief review of history, a description of the suffering imposed upon the Israelites, a listing of the plagues visited on the Egyptians, and an enumeration of the miracles performed by the Almighty for the redemption of His people. Rochtzah—Washing Before the Meal After concluding the first part of the haggadah by drinking the second cup of wine (while reclining), the hands are washed again, this time with the customary blessings, as is usually done before eating bread. Motzi Matzah—We Eat the Matzah Taking hold of the three matzot (with the broken one between the two whole ones), recite the customary blessing before bread. Then, letting the bottom matzah drop back onto the plate, and holding the top whole matzah with the broken middle one, recite the special blessing “al achilat matzah.” Then break at least one ounce from each matzah and eat the two pieces together, while reclining. Maror—the Bitter Herbs Take at least one ounce of the bitter herbs. Dip it in the charoset, then shake the latter off and make the blessing “al achilat maror.” Eat without reclining. Korech—the Sandwich In keeping with the custom instituted by Hillel, the great Talmudic sage, a sandwich of matzah and maror is eaten. Break off two pieces of the bottom matzah, which together should be at least one ounce. Again, take at least one ounce of bitter herbs and dip them in the charoset. Place this between the two pieces of matzah, say “kein asah Hillel . . .” and eat the sandwich while reclining. Shulchan Orech—the Feast The holiday meal is now served. We begin the meal with a hard-boiled egg dipped into saltwater. A rabbi was once asked why Jews eat eggs on Passover. “Because eggs symbolize the Jew,” the rabbi answered. “The more an egg is burned or boiled, the harder it gets.” Note: The chicken neck is not eaten at the Seder. Tzafun—Out of Hiding After the meal, the half-matzah which had been “hidden,” set aside for the afikoman(“dessert”), is taken out and eaten. It symbolizes the Paschal lamb, which was eaten at the end of the meal. Everyone should eat at least 1½ ounces of matzah, reclining, before midnight. After eating the afikoman, we do not eat or drink anything except for the two remaining cups of wine. Berach—Blessings After the Meal A third cup of wine is filled and Grace is recited. After the Grace we recite the blessing over wine and drink the third cup while reclining. Now we fill the cup of Elijah and our own cups with wine. We open the door and recite the passage which is an invitation to the Prophet Elijah, the harbinger of the coming of Moshiach, our righteous Messiah. Hallel—Songs of Praise At this point, having recognized the Almighty and His unique guidance of the Jewish people, we go still further and sing His praises as L‑rd of the entire universe. After reciting the Hallel, we again recite the blessing over wine and drink the fourth cup, reclining. Nirtzah—Acceptance Having carried out the Seder service properly, we are sure that it has been well received by the Almighty. We then say “Leshanah haba’ah bee-rushalayim—Next year in Jerusalem.”

Russia: Ancient Jewish library welcomed to new home in Moscow

Russia: Ancient Jewish library welcomed to new home in Moscow

Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre as an important collection of ancient Jewish books, the Schneerson library, arrived on Thursday. The President familiarised himself with the most valuable parts of the collection, which contains some 12,000 books and 50,000 rare documents dating from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century.

The transfer follows years of debate with the New York City based Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic community who demand the return of the library. The movement argues they are the right owners of the books, as the author of the collection, Schneerson, headed the organisation after moving to the United States. However the transfer of the Schneerson library was welcomed by the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Berl Lazar, who called it a big day for Russian Jews.

Russia has maintained that it will keep the collection, saying that it is a state property and part of Russian culture. The matter got into the media spotlight in January after a US judge ordered Russia to pay $50,000 (€37,000) per day until it returns the library. The decision to move the collection to Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre was proposed by Putin himself this year during a meeting of the Presidential Council for Interethnic Relations.

Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Centre of Tolerance was opened in November 2012, with Israeli President Shimon Peres travelling to Moscow for its inauguration. It features several interactive displays regarding the Jewish peoples’ long and tumultuous place in Russian history. Now home to the the Schneerson library collection, the museum’s new library department operates as a part of the Russian State Library.

Indian Doctor converts to Judaism – Chabad

In a powerful echo of the Biblical story of the patriarch Abraham, a Mumbai doctor smashed his father’s idols and eventually decided to become a Jew in the Land of Israel.

Dr. Aharon Abraham, left his position as Director of the ICU Medical Center at British Kennedy in Mumbai, India after terrorists murdered his spiritual guide and his wife, Rabbi Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg one year ago.

Abraham was born Vagirds Frads to a Hindu cleric who worshipped idols, and a mother who prepared food for them. As did the Biblical Abraham, young Vagirds could not understand how his father could honor a man-made statue, nor why his mother would cook for them. “Sometimes I eat it in secret,” he confided in an article that appeared in Hebrew in Sichat HaShavuah.

Unlike the patriarch, however, he waited until after graduating high school to confront his father, asking how he could believe “such nonsense.” But when there was no reply, his anger led him to take a hammer and smash the idols, exactly as Abraham had done. “The gods are angry!” his father shouted at him, he recounted, and recalled his reply: “If they’re angry, let them do something, reconstruct themselves…”

It was while studying medicine at the University of Mumbai that he first read a Bible, given to him by Christian students. Amazed, he read the story of Abraham and many others. “A new world opened before me,” he said.

The woman he married, a nurse, was equally interested in his Bible studies, and after their wedding the couple changed their family name to “Abraham,” to honor the patriarch. Vagirds became Aaron, because “the priest was a wonderful person, full of glory,” he explained.

Eventually the couple decided to convert, and began studying Judaism in earnest with Rabbi Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg, Chabad emmissaries to Mumbai.

“Our whole life centered around the Chabad House,” said Abraham. “It was the only place where we could get kosher food. Gabi and Rivky were our guides, we did not move without them. We began a process of true conversion and found the extraordinary beauty of the Torah commandments.”

It was the brutal murder of the Holtzbergs and their four guests at the Nariman Chabad House that changed their lives forever, however. “They took away my Master… But what we learned from Gabi and Rivki will accompany us and our children forever.”

This week, the couple completed their conversion and remarried in a truly kosher Jewish ceremony at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron, on the first anniversary of the murder of their friends and spiritual guides, Gabi and Rivky.

The couple’s three children also have new names as well: Sarah, Shmuel Gavriel, and Sharonah Rivka, in memory of the matriarch Sarah, wife of Abraham, and to forever keep alive the memories of Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg.

French Jews Fear Far Right: Europe’s largest Jewish community concerned by rise of Le Pen

The Socialist government has launched a cultural battle against the National Front, which it considers to be a danger for the French Republic, a point of view shared by the Jewish community, which sees in the rise of the Far Right a painful reminder of the 1930s which saw Hitler come to power.

“גם אם אני צריך למות,” הוא הפציר, “תן לי למות בכבוד, זה כל מה שאני מבקש.

27.07.2015 אורלי וגיא, ערוץ 10 27/7/15 סערת הנער שמתנגד לטיפול נגד סרטן: “תנו למות בשקט. בואו תפגינו בשבילי למען שחרורי מהטיפולים בכפייה”. הנער אומר: “עם ישראל היקרים, אני מבקש מכל מי שיכול לבוא להפגין כאן, בכניסה לבית החולים רמב”ם בחיפה, לגבי הטיפול בכפייה שרוצים לעשות לי וכל מי שיש לו אפשרות לבוא, שיבוא ויפגין כאן, שלא ייתנו לי טיפול כפייתי באזיקים. גם אם אני צריך למות, תנו לי למות בכבוד. זו כל הבקשה שלי”. א’ בן ה- 16 שברח מבית החולים כיוון שסירב לקבל טיפולים כימותרפיים ממחלת הסרטן פונה לציבור ומבקש ממנו להפגין איתו נגד החזקתו בכפייה. כתבנו אלי לוי מדווח, כי כל בקשתו היא לאפשר לו לחזור לביתו, למשפחתו ולחבריו, ולנהל חיים נורמליים בלי טיפולים. — ההפגנה היא היום בשעה 18:00 ברחבת בית חולים רמב”ם חיפה. אתם בעצם קוראים לציבור לבוא ולהפגין למען מה? עורך דין אפרים דמרי: בקשתו של הנער, זה מכיוון שהוא עבר ועדיין רוצים להעביר אותו טיפולים כימותרפיים בכפייה. זאת אומרת עצם הטיפול שלו בבית החולים הוא במסגרת צו של בית המשפט, בהוראת שופט לטפל בו בכפייה מוחלטת. זאת אומרת לא נתנו לו את זכות הבחירה או לא שמעו אותו. המערכת הייתה מאוד אטומה בכל מה שקרה סביב הנער הזה. הזעקה שלו: “בואו תשמיעו את קולכם במקומי”. — אגב, אני חושב שברור לכולם שטיפול כימותרפי בכפייה לא יכול להתנהל כי זה טיפול ארוך טווח. זאת אומרת זה לא טיפול חד פעמי שאפשר לטשטש אותו. עו”ד דמרי: בגלל התערבות התקשורת. עד לפני שהתערבתם העניקו לו את הטיפול בכפייה. אני אומר את זה בשם המשפחה. — אתה טוען שבזכות המהומה התקשורתית הופסקו הטיפולים בכפייה? עו”ד דמרי: בוודאי. — איזה טיפול בכפייה כבר היה? עו”ד דמרי: כל מהלך הטיפול של החודש וחצי האחרונים הכימותרפיים, הוא כבר עבר שני סדרות של טיפולים וזה הטיפול השלישי הסדרה השלישית בטיפול, כי הטיפולים האחרונים הצליחו חלקית. — והוא לא רוצה להמשיך את זה כי זה עשה לו דברים נוראיים? עו”ד דמרי: מה ששבר את הנער עצמו שבעקבות הטיפול האחרון לפני שבוע וחצי בערך, הוא קיבל כנראה מנה גדושה של חומר והוא איבד את הכרתו והוא אושפז במחלקה לטיפול נמרץ בבית החולים רמב”ם בחיפה. לאחר שייצבו את מצבו החזירו אותו חזרה לאותו חדר ורצו להמשיך בטיפול כרגיל. — האם הוא מבין שאם הוא לא יקבל טיפול כימותרפי כפי שאומרים הרופאים הוא יכול לסיים את חייו, הוא הבין את המשמעות של זה? עו”ד דמרי: הוא מבין אבל הוא גם מבין דבר אחד שהסיכוי להירפא מהטיפול לדבריהם של אותם רופאים הוא נמוך מ- 50%. http://demri-law.com

Upshernish Jewish Traditional Hair Cutting Ceremony

A deeper explanation: Major mystic acts on the physical plane of human existence are defining milestones that imprint on the life of a Jew. At birth, the Holy Act of Circumcision brings him into a covenant with the heritage of Abraham. The Kabalah explains that many “evil forces” hover around a developing baby and toddler, the so-called “evil eye”, and that the way to confound these forces is to leave the natural growth of hair untouched, and thus the gender of the toddler is disguised. At precisely the Third Year the hair is cut short (Opshernish), and the child, who during his last two years heard comments like “what a cute girl !”, and “what is it, a boy or a girl?”, is now given a Kipah and Tzit-tzit, and asked “What are you, a boy or a girl?” He looks in the mirror and responds: I AM A BOY ! At this moment, Gender Definition and Identification takes solid root in his consciousness. He is truly a boy now, in the eyes of his family and friends. (The female child, according to Jewish mystical awarenes, is bestowed a soul that functions in a higher spiritual domain, and is not beset with the “confounding” forces attacking her gender. She tends to grow in femeninity and identifies solidly with her mother.) The importance of this milestone cannot be underestimated for the Jewish community! (His next milestone will be at the Thirteenth Year, when Responsability for his Actions is established in his consciousness.)

VP Biden Quotes Lubavitcher Rebbe at New American Jewish History Museum

Philadelphia, PA – Drawn by the chance to celebrate 350 years of American Jewish history at the newest addition to the most historic square mile in the nation’s first capital, hundreds of people from across the country descended on Philadelphia last month, to hear Vice President Joseph Biden announce that a new museum’s Jewish stories were, in fact, manifestations of distinctly American ideals. “In telling the story of the American Jewish experience, this museum in my view, tells the story of America’s identity,” Biden said Sunday at festivities in front of the new $150 million home of the National Museum of American Jewish History. In hailing the contributions of a host of American Jews, Biden — a Scranton, Pa., native who represented neighboring Delaware in the U.S. Senate before ascending to the White House — quoted from a diary entry written by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, upon his 1940 departure from Lisbon, Portugal, and much-awaited arrival in the United States. The diary page is on permanent display in the museum’s “Only in America” exhibit, along with two other items connected to the Chabad-Lubavitch leader. The Rebbe taught that “every living thing, and especially living persons, must not remain static, but [they are] expected to grow from strength to strength,” stated Biden, they “must always add even if [they have] already achieved good things and holy things. [They] should never be satisfied with what was achieved yesterday, no matter how perfect or good it was.” Adding that the museum, “gives all of us the opportunity to make sure that we don’t remain static,” the Vice President emphasized that more can always be done to perfect the world. at Mark 9:07. quotes the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Brooklyn Landlords Arrested for Allegedly Forcing Out Rent Stabilized Tenants

16.04.2015 JewsOnTelevision BUSHWICK – A pair of Brooklyn brothers accused of forcing long-term rent-stabilized tenants out of their apartments was arrested and arraigned today. District Attorney Ken Thompson says that brothers Joel and Aaron Israel destroyed their tenants’ apartments and made them unlivable, forcing the tenants out of their rent-stabilized homes. Thompson says that the two landlords destroyed the apartments so that they could put them on the market at much higher rates. He says that the tenants in the Israels’ building on Linden Street were living in horrible conditions. “Our landlord destroyed our kitchen and bathroom,” said tenant Michelle Crespo. “For 18 months, we had to use other people’s bathrooms, including public facilities as well.” Both men pleaded not guilty in court. The judge ordered a $50,000 cash bail for Joel Israel and a $25,000 cash bail for Aaron Israel. They are due back in court on June 18.

Israel Jerusalem Mea Shearim מאה שערים‎

A throwback to older times. Mea Shearim ( מאה שערים‎) is one of the oldest Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem. The quarter was established in 1874 and was surrounded by a wall . The community created a list of regulations to preserve a religious atmosphere. Mea Shearim today remains an insulated neighborhood with ultra cv population.

The 21st day of Kislev is celebrated annual by Satmar chasidim worldwide as the day R’ Yoel Teitelbaum Zt’l the founder of Satmar Chasidis in America, escaped from Hungary and this year marks the 67th anniversary of the Grand Rebbe’s escape from the Nazis. R’ Teitelbaum was among over 1600 people who were transported out of Hungary by train due to the efforts of Rudolf Kastner, one of the leaders of Budapest’s Vaadat Ezra V’Hatzalah, who brokered a deal with Adolph Eichmann to let the passengers leave in exchange for a large sum of money, diamonds and gold. While Eichmann reneged on the deal and had the train sent to Bergen Belsen, the train was finally released after four months of negotiations and the passengers finally obtained their freedom when they arrived in Switzerland. כ”א כסלו יום ההצלה של כ”ק מרן הרה”ק בעל הדברי יואל מסאטמאר זיע”א מציפורני הנאצים ימ”ש התאספו רבבות חסידי סאטמאר מכל רחבי ארה”ב בראשות כ”ק אדמו”ר מסאטמאר שליט”א לציין ולהודות לה’ יתברך על חסדו הגדול

The audio was subsequently given to YWN to share.

Keeping it Kosher in LA’s Kosher Corridor: Soul Food

In this episode of Soul Food, our host Kiran Deol heads over to LA’s Kosher Corridor to get wise to the ways one can keep it kosher. She gets schooled by the local butcher, and discovers that today’s kosher food and drink is much more than just matzo balls and sweet, syrupy wine. Kosher cuisine can be contemporary, or really any style of food—be it burritos or a lamb belly “bacon” sandwich with homemade sriracha—as long as one follows strict kosher guidelines. Kiran’s exploration of where the spirit meets the stomach ends with an insightful invite for a Friday night sampling of a Shabbat dinner.

In modern-day Israel, it is celebrated as a holiday of love (Hebrew: חג האהבה‎, Hag HaAhava), similar to Valentine’s Day.[1] It has been said to be a “great day for weddings” According to the Mishna, Tu B’Av was a joyous holiday in the days of the Temple in Jerusalem, marking the beginning of the grape harvest. Yom Kippur marked the end of the grape harvest. On both dates, the unmarried girls of Jerusalem dressed in white garments, which they borrowed,[2] and went out to dance in the vineyards (Babylonian Talmud, tractate Ta’anit 30b-31a).[3] That same section in the Talmud states that there were no holy days as happy for the Jews as Tu B’Av and Yom Kippur.[4] The holiday celebrated the wood-offering brought in the temple (see Nehemiah 10:35). Josephus refers to it as the Feast of Xylophory (“Wood-bearing”).[5] Photo by Wikipedia read more… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_B%27Av

Dr Maurice Mizrahi – The secrets of Jewish survival (Tish’a b’Av)

22.07.2015 A few days from now is Tish’a b’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. Many catastrophes befell the Jews on that day, the Ninth of Av, including the destruction of the two temples in Jerusalem. Each of these tragedies, by itself, could have led to the disappearance of Judaism. But none did. Why? What made the Jews survive as a distinct people, when so many other civilizations have disappeared? [captions available — click on “cc”]

Orthodox Jews Taking Jiu Jitsu Lessons for Self Defense

21.07.2015 A new version of martial arts is being taught to and practiced by Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. CBS2’s Scott Rapoport talked to a man who has been called the “most dangerous Jew in NYC” — Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. Former NYC probation officers and Washington Heights native Steve Isaak, 67, has developed a personalized style of martial arts called Shima Juijitsu. He’s been teaching it for more than 40 years to a devoted following of the city’s most observant, Orthodox Jews, in a Brighton Beach studio. Part of his mission is for it to be self-defense from anti-semetism. “Everyone need self-defense but they need it more than most, based on the history of Jewish people,” Isaak said. His students come in all shapes, sizes, ages and sexes. There are women, too, who want to learn to defend themselves — like Chavi Charlap. And what does she get from the class? “I get confidence,” Charlap replied. Because they are Orthodox, the women train separately from the men. And though touching is traditionally verboten, some of his female students permit it during training, saying Isaak’s classes are conducted with respect to their Orthodox values. “If I’m in a life threatening situation and because of this I can save my life and other lives then it’s definitely worth it,” Charlap said. Isaak turned to martial arts as a young, 12-year-old boy after he says he was beaten up by two older kids. By the time he got to college, he was teaching self-defense. He opened his own martial arts school shortly after that. Isaak says the secret and power of Shima Juijitsu is that you don’t have to be athletic or powerful. That it is based on efficiency, not strength, Rapoport reported. The cerebral Sensai says he teaches his students a series of moves that can deflect and derail an attacker. His student Rabbi David Goldshyn with the Jewish Center Of Brighton Beach says it’s effective and necessary. “You don’t want to get into a fight every two seconds,” Goldshyn said. “But you also want to have the confidence that if something happens you can protect yourself.” Through the years, Isaak says he’s taught Shima Juijitsu to cops, prosecutors, judges and even some in Israel’s defense forces. Isaak says he now now lives in Myrtle Beach, but comes back to Brighton Beach every two weeks for 5 days at a time to teach his Orthodox students. He says his students demand it.

Howard Sterns Daughter Observes Shabbat

Strictly Kosher series

All rights belong to ITV. The Jewish community in Manchester is a kaleidoscope of tradition, religion and extravagance. This documentary film opens a window into their lives and shows a wide variety of ritual and celebrations. Strictly Kosher, filmed, produced and directed by Chris Malone, revolves around three families and their friends and paints a colourful picture of the juxtaposition between the many different personalities and levels of religious observance in Manchester’s Jewish community. It offers an insight into lifestyles which range from one extreme — traditional and strict – to the other — modern and extravagant – but are bound together by one faith. The film follows Bernette Clarke, a very lively and modern Orthodox Jewish mother of three. Bernette talks openly about her faith, explains the traditional approach her family has to the Sabbath and other Jewish festivals, and offers her views on the wider Jewish community. Joel Lever and his wife Joanne also allow the cameras into their lives. Joel’s family are traditionally Jewish by birth, but he admits they are not very religious. Joel puts his all into his fashion boutique ‘Mon Amie’ which is frequented by the Jewish ladies of Prestwich — by making the Jewish women the talk of the town, he feels he is serving the local community. 83-year-old Jack Aizenberg tells the ultimate rags to riches story. He was just eleven years old at the outbreak of the Second World War and his family were killed in Belzec Extermination camp in 1942 when he was just 14. Against the odds Jack survived and made his way to Manchester, England in 1945. Jack feels that religion is not as important as basic common humanity and does not practice all the requirements of the Jewish faith, but he’s a celebrated survivor venerated by the Jewish community in Manchester. Having made a successful career in the luggage trade, Jack is thrilled to have the money to throw his grandson a lavish Bar Mitzvah — a special moment caught on camera.

JamShalom & Phishalom Summer ’15 Fundraiser

12.05.2015

Kindly donate here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ja…

4,000 years ago the father and mother of all Spirituality, Abraham and Sarah, set up the first JamShalom tent in the crossroads of ancient Canaan. Three Holy Chillers stopped by their tent for some great food and great company (and rumor has it that they also jammed up a storm), and the rest is history. Fast-forward to 1965: The Grateful Dead are born, and holy chilling tents are suddenly popping up on every crossroads across the country. Jump 44 more years to 2009, and PHISHalom sets up its first tent on Phish-Lot, bringing together the ancient Jewish traditions of hospitality and good food, joined with the love and family we first encountered on Dead-Lot. Six years later, and PHISHalom and JamShalom have become a familiar home to hundreds of fans at Phish concerts and music festivals, and the Golden Shore has become a regular destination for Holy Chillers who find their way to Israel.

17th of Tammuz – Complete Connection – Torah Insights

http://www.naaleh.com By Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller On the 17th of Tammuz five horrible events occurred in Jewish history. One of these events was the chat ha’agel, the sin of the golden calf. A calf symbolizes the power of the people- the Jewish people were essentially worshiping themselves. From here we learn how to have a complete connection with Hashem, G-d.

Farewell to Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival 2014

2014 brought the winds of war to our region, throwing a shadow over the festival that threated to unravel the delicate fabric and ideals upon which it is based. But despite this, international and local artists came to Jerusalem imbued with a sense of commitment and a renewed belief in the message that calls on the Middle East’ peoples to open their hearts and allow music to unite us. In what is now an annual tradition, the festival offers unique experiences that bring together international and Israeli artists in performances under a canopy of stars, opposite Jerusalem’s ancient walls and in houses of prayer. Each year we invite audiences to take part in “A Night Stroll,” a magical white night at the Tower of David comprising performances, ceremonies, some whispering and a series of “Testimony Encounters” — guided tours that trace the sacred sounds that play year-round in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem Day, 2015: Rightful Owners of the Temple Mount

17.05.2015 The holiday known as ‘Jerusalem Day’ is observed in Israel every year on the Hebrew date of Iyar 28 – the day corresponding with June 7th, 1967 on which the city of Jerusalem was liberated and united by the paratrooper brigade of the Israel Defense Forces in the Six Day War. 48 years later to the day, on May 17th, 2015, a crowd numbering 1,000 Jews converged at the gate of the Temple Mount, eager to ascend the mountain in joyous acknowledgment of the miraculous return of the city to Jewish sovereignty and in fulfillment of the Biblical commandment to revere the place of the Holy Temple. Most of all, they came to pray at the holy site. The discriminatory practices and self-styled, anti-democratic ‘rules’ of the police prevented Jewish prayer, but once again fully allowed the demonic incitement of crowds of Muslim thugs and mercenaries who dogged every step of the Jewish pilgrims on the Mount and generally did their best to cause the Jews misery. And while the Jewish worshipers waited on line in the sun for as long as three hours for a chance to ascend even briefly on this special day, many were turned away in disappointment. But the Jews who gathered that morning at the Mugrabi Gate waiting to ascend to the Temple Mount had the honor of welcoming and hearing a hero in their midst: renowned Torah scholar Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder and president of the Temple Institute, was himself an IDF paratrooper who fought for the liberation of the Temple Mount on this very day, 48 years ago. The rabbi addressed the enthusiastic crowd and spoke of his experiences as a soldier in this very spot on that fateful day. Rabbi Ariel recalled his fallen comrades who gave their lives for the return of the Temple Mount to the Jewish people, and encouraged the assembled to continue in the heroes’ footsteps by demonstrating Jewish presence and rightful ownership of the Mount.

Jerusalem of Gold – Yerushalayim shel Zahav -Ofra Haza- with English Lyrics

“Jerusalem of Gold” (Hebrew: ירושלים של זהב‎, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav) is a popular Israeli song written by Naomi Shemer in 1967. The original song described the Jewish people’s 2000-year longing to return to Jerusalem; Shemer added a final verse after the Six-Day War to celebrate Jerusalem’s unification under Israeli control. At that time, the Old City was under Jordanian rule; Jews had been barred from entering, and many holy sites had been desecrated. Only three weeks after the song was published, the Six-Day War broke out. The song was the battle cry and morale booster of the Israeli troops. Shemer even sang it for them before the war and festival, making them among the first in the world to hear it. On 7 June, the Israel Defense Forces captured the eastern part of Jerusalem and the Old City from the Jordanians. When Shemer heard the paratroopers singing “Jerusalem of Gold” at the Western Wall, she wrote a final verse, reversing the phrases of lamentation found in the second verse. The line about shofars sounding from the Temple Mount is a reference to an event that actually took place on 7 June. This beautiful version is from the late OFRA HAZA.

The Festival of Shavuot

Intimately connected to the land of Israel, Shavuot is the festival of the bringing of the first-fruits to the Holy Temple. Shavuot is also the anniversary of the Sinai revelation and the receiving of Torah by Israel, and since the destruction of the Holy Temple the emphasis of Shavuot has been Torah study. Ultimately, Torah study and the bringing of the first-fruits are both expressions of the centrality of Torah in our lives. When we build the Holy Temple we best exemplify the fulfillment of Torah in this world by the bringing of the first-fruits.

Prominent NY Rabbi Arthur Schneier Honored With Papal Knighthood

03.05.2015 Lenny Bruce famously said that even a Catholic in New York is Jewish, but that didn’t stop one of the city’s most prominent Jewish leaders from accepting a touch of the Holy See on Monday. Rabbi Arthur Schneier of Manhattan’s Park East Synagogue was knighted and made a member of the Papal Order of St. Sylvester at a ceremony on the Upper East Side, joining luminaries such as industrialist Oskar Schindler and comedian Bob Hope who have held the title. “It’s Pope Francis’ very touching and tender way of confirming [Rabbi Schneier] and the good works that he’s done on behalf of religious freedom, international peace and justice,” said longtime pal and neighbor Cardinal Timothy Dolan, head of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. The cardinal grinned broadly as he pinned the order’s gold cross to the 84-year-old Holocaust survivor’s lapel. “It’s an honor.” During his career, Rabbi Schneier campaigned vigorously alongside other faith leaders for greater religious freedom and tolerance, as well as helping to build ties between Jews and Roman Catholics following World War II. “In 1965, in the height of religious persecution in the Soviet Union, I mobilized with Robert Kennedy religious leaders of all faiths in an appeal to our first religious freedom mission to Moscow, but via Rome,” Rabbi Schneier said. “We need to strive together…for a world of mutual acceptance—not tolerance, acceptance.” Rabbi Schneier has been associated with the Park East Synagogue since 1962. After the ceremony, the new knight shared a Champagne toast with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Mayor David Dinkins and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, as well as half a dozen of the city’s most prominent religious leaders. “I’m here to pay tribute to a dear friend and a good leader,” Dr. Kissinger said. “He’s contributed to the solution of one our great problems,” promoting peace between the major world faiths. The knighthood, which may be bestowed on Catholics and non-Catholics alike, is intended to honor significant contributions to humanity. The ancient order’s origin is somewhat murky, though it apparently was first intended to honor lay Catholics who showed intense devotion to the church. In 1905, Pope Pius X changed the Order of St. Sylvester to include non-Catholic honorees, separating it from the so-called Golden Militia, of which it had previously been a part. In addition to the gold cross, the official St. Sylvester regalia includes a red-and-black uniform and a sword. “You mentioned about my getting a sword? I have a problem with a sword, though,” Rabbi Schneier insisted. “I’m for peace!” “Turn it into a plowshare,” Cardinal Dolan suggested.

Jerusalem Day

From Wikipedia Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים‎, Yom Yerushalayim) is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalemand the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. The day is officially marked by state ceremonies and memorial services. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to mark the regaining of access to the Western Wall.[1] While the day has lost its significance for most secular Israelis,[2][3][4] the day is still very much celebrated by Israel’s Religious Zionist community[5][6] with parades and additional prayers in the synagogue.Photo by Wikipedia Read More Button--orange

A new anti-Semitism? Why thousands of Jewish citizens are leaving France

Some Jewish citizens in France say there is a rising tide of a new, more dangerous anti-Semitism in the country. In turn, thousands are leaving for Israel and other countries. In an effort to reassure Jewish people in France that they are safe, the government has taken strict measures against anti-Semitic demonstrations. Special correspondent Martin Seemungal reports.

Why have anti-Semitic attacks on French Jews nearly doubled in one year?

08.02.2015 Last month’s terror attack at a Kosher supermarket in Paris called attention to rising anti-Semitism in France. This week, attackers slashed three soldiers guarding a Jewish community center in Nice. French authorities believe a small number of radicalized young men from North Africa are responsible for a disproportio

Meet David Smith, The YouTube Chossid

16.03.2015 David Smith traveled around the world, has seen many things. But he never saw the Rebbe. “We celebrated the holidays, my mother bentched licht,” Smith says. “We had an identity, we knew who we were – but it was a secular lifestyle. “My mother would say in Yiddish, ‘You’re a Jew! You should be practicing Judaism!'” And then one day, he says, he “met” the Rebbe, via YouTube.

Turkey’s Great Synagogue inaugurated after restoration

26.03.2015 The Great Synagogue, which is considered the third largest in the Europe and the largest in Turkey, has been inaugurated for worship after a-four-year-long restoration in northwestern Edirne province of Turkey on March 26, 2015. The synagogue was in use until 1983 and the restoration was launched by Turkey’s General Directorate of Foundations. (Footage by Salih Baran / Anadolu Agency)

Historical synagogue in Turkey’s northwest to open soon

09.03.2015 A historical synagogue, the subject of an outcry due to a governor’s remarks to turn it into a museum, is waiting to be reopened for services at the end of the month. The Great Synagogue, in the northwestern province of Edirne, will open on March 26, after undergoing a four year restoration. Jewish community head, İshak İbrahimzadeh, who visited the synagogue before the opening ceremony, said the opening of the restored synagogue was a milestone that made him very happy. Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç and Turkey’s chief rabbi, İshak Haleva, will attend the opening, along with many other Jewish community members from both Turkey and abroad. As Europe’s second largest synagogue, the Edirne Synagogue was built in 1907 after a widespread fire in 1905 that burnt down 13 separate synagogues. The synagogue was constructed using the architectural model of Vienna’s Leopoldstadter Tempel and abandoned in 1983. The temple was transferred to Thrace University to be used as a museum after its restoration but after much criticism from the Jewish community in Turkey, the building was transferred back to the General Directorate for Foundations. Edirne Gov. Dursun Şahin created uproar when he told reporters on Nov. 21, 2014, that the synagogue would be turned into a museum, citing the recent Israeli raid on the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. “While those bandits blow winds of war inside al-Aqsa and slay Muslims, we build their synagogues,” Şahin said. Şahin later offered an “apology” to Haleva, claiming that his proposal to turn the synagogue into a museum as a reprisal for Israel’s policies over Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque “had no connection” to the Turkish Jewish community.

YOUR HOLIDAY GUIDE: Passover 5775 – 2015 (April 3-11, 2015)

Your Passover Guide – 2015

Editor’s NotePassover begins this year on Friday evening, April 3, 2015, and continues until nightfall, April 11, 2015. We bring you a brief overview of how and when to prepare your home for Passover, along with a daily holiday schedule for the entire holiday. If you have any further questions please consult your local orthodox rabbi or, in case you don’t have one, write to us atwww.chabad.org/asktherabbi.Please read this guide in its entirety before the beginning of the holiday. Some holiday items need pre-holiday “action.” We welcome you to print it and carry it with you in the days before Passover for easy reference, and to distribute this guide to whomever will benefit from it.

Operation Zero Chametz Passover is a holiday that mandates our complete involvement, not just during its eight days but for weeks before. Aside from the regular holiday obligations, we are also commanded (Exodus 13:3–7): “No leaven shall be eaten . . . For seven days you shall eat unleavened bread . . . and no leaven shall be seen of yours [in your possession].” We accomplish this by cleaning and inspecting our homes well before Passover, and gradually eliminating chametz from every room and crevice. This intensive cleaning takes place in Jewish homes throughout the world. What is Chametz? Chametz is any food product made from wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, or their derivatives, which has leavened (risen). Our sages have determined that flour from any of these five grains that comes in contact with water or moisture will leaven, unless fully baked within eighteen minutes. As we are commanded by the Torah, if a food contains even a trace of chametz, we don’t eat it, we don’t derive benefit from it, and we make sure not to have any of it in our possession for all the days of Passover. To be certain that a product is kosher for Passover, it must have rabbinical certification. Otherwise it is possible that it contains chametz ingredients, or traces of chametz if it was processed on the same equipment as chametz products. Thus, unless a product is certified Kosher for Passover, we consider it chametz, and make sure not to have it in our possession on Passover. Note: Matzah used all year round might be pure chametz, and not for Passover use. Only matzahs baked especially for Passover may be used on Passover. Kitniyot The medieval Jewish sages placed a ban on eating legumes (kitniyot) on Passover, because they are similar in texture to chametz—even bread can be made out of their flour—so people might assume that if, for example, cornbread can be eaten on Passover, wheat or rye bread can be eaten too. This prohibition includes rice, beans and corn. This injunction was unanimously accepted by Ashkenazic Jews; many Sephardic Jews, however, continue to eat kitniyot on Passover. If you are Sephardic, speak to your rabbi to determine your family and community tradition. The prohibition is only with regards to consumption ofkitniyot; there is no obligation, however, to destroy or sell kitniyot products before Passover. Getting Rid of Chametz Search and Destroy Any area where one can reasonably suspect that chametz might have been brought throughout the year must be thoroughly cleaned. This includes the home, office, cars, garage, etc. Check carefully to ensure that no crumb is left behind: check and clean desks, drawers, closets, clothing pockets (especially the children’s), pocketbooks, briefcases and attache cases, beds, dining and living room furniture, bookcases, etc. If You Can’t Destroy it, Sell It Chametz that you don’t want to destroy, and utensils used throughout the year (and not koshered for Passover), should be stored in closets or rooms which will be sealed for the duration of Passover. The chametz should be sold to a non-Jew through a rabbi.Click here to sell your chametz online. Preparing the Kitchen Every part of our homes is cleaned for Passover, but we pay special attention to the kitchen, because (a) that’s where most of our chametz hangs out during the year, and (b) we will be using our kitchens to prepare our Passover food. Dishes and Utensils Today, most Passover-savvy homes have a special set of dishes, silverware, pots, pans and other utensils for Passover use only. If necessary, certain year-round utensils can be used—provided they are koshered for Passover. This gets rather complex—you’ll need to consult a competent rabbi about your particular utensils, but you can click here for the basic koshering procedures. Stove Thoroughly clean and scour every part of the stove. Heat the oven to the highest temperature possible for 1–2 hours. Heat the grates and the iron parts of the stove (and the elements, if electric) until they are red-hot. It is suggested that the oven and the stove top should be covered with aluminum foil afterwards for the duration of Passover. Microwave Ovens Clean the oven thoroughly. Fill a completely clean container, that was not used for 24 hours, with water. Turn on the microwave and let it steam heavily. Turn it off and wipe out the inside. To use the microwave during Passover, use a flat, thick, microwave-safe object as a separation between the bottom of the oven and the cooking dish. When cooking or warming, the food should be covered on all sides. Sink For 24 hours before koshering the sink, do not pour hot water from chametz pots into it. Meticulously clean the sink, boil water in a clean pot which was not used for 24 hours, and pour three times onto every part of the sink, including the drain stopper. Then line the sink with foil or liner. Refrigerator, Freezer, Cupboards, Closets, Tables, and Counters Thoroughly clean and scrub them to remove any crumbs and residue. Afterwards, place a heavy covering over those surfaces that come into contact with hot food or utensils. Tablecloths and Napkins Launder without starch. Cars, Garages, etc. Vacuum your car or van; thoroughly clean your basement, garage, or any property you own. Special care should be taken with items you will be using, or rooms you will be accessing, during Passover. Passover Shopping While shopping for Passover we must be careful that the foods we buy are not only kosher, but are also kosher for Passover—that is, chametz-free. Starting “From Scratch” All fruits and vegetables, as well as all kosher cuts of meat and kosher fish, are kosher for Passover, provided they have been prepared in accordance with Jewish law and have not come into contact withchametz or chametz utensils. The prevailing custom in Ashkenazi communities is that on Passover we do not eat rice, millet, corn, mustard, legumes (beans, etc.) or food made from any of these. Commercially Prepared Products Today there are many kosher-for-Passover packaged foods available. However, care must be used to purchase only those packaged foods that have reliable rabbinical supervision which is valid for Passover. Obviously, all leavened foods made from—or that contain among their ingredients—wheat, barley, rye, oats, or spelt are actual chametz and are prohibited on Passover. Examples are bread, cake, cereal, spaghetti, beer and whiskey. Check That Medicine Cabinet! Many medicines, sprays, and cosmetics contain chametz. Consult a competent rabbi as to which ones may be used on Passover. The same applies to pet food. Click here to to purchase your Passover essentials from our store. The Passover Calendar—2015

The Seder Ingredients Matzah, the “Food of Faith” When our forefathers left Egypt, they were in such a hurry that there was no time to wait for the dough to rise. They therefore ate matzah, unleavened bread. With only this food (but with great faith), our ancestors relied on the Almighty to provide sustenance for the entire Jewish nation—men, women and children. Each year, to remember this, we eat matzah on the first two nights of Pesach, thereby fulfilling the Torah’s commandment, “Matzot shall you eat . . .” The Humblest of Foods Matzah symbolizes faith. In contrast to leavened bread, matzah is not enriched with oil, honey or other substances. It consists only of flour and water, and is not allowed to rise. Similarly, the only “ingredients” for faith are humility and submission to G‑d, which come from recognizing our “nothingness” when compared with the infinite wisdom of the Creator. One of the holiday’s primary obligations is to eat matzah during the Seder. It is strongly recommended to use shmurah matzah to fulfill this commandment. Matzah is eaten three times during the Seder:

  1. After telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt (Maggid), washing our hands for bread (Rachtzah) and reciting the blessings (Motzi Matzah), 1¾ ounces of matzah are eaten.
  2. For the sandwich (Korech), ¾ of an ounce of matzah is eaten.
  3. For the afikoman at the end of the meal (Tzafun), a minimum of ¾ of an ounce (and ideally 1½ ounces) of matzah are eaten.

In each instance, the matzah should be eaten within 4 minutes. How much is one ounce of Matzah? Half a piece of shmurah matzah is generally one ounce. If store-bought matzot are used, the weight of the box of matzot divided by the number of pieces shows how much matzah is the equivalent of one ounce. Shmurah Matzah Shmurah means “watched,” and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing. The day chosen for the harvesting of the wheat is a clear, dry day. The moment it is harvested, the wheat is inspected to ensure that there is absolutely no moisture. From then on, careful watch is kept upon the grains as they are transported to the mill. The mill is meticulously inspected by rabbis and supervision professionals to ensure that every piece of equipment is absolutely clean and dry. After the wheat is milled, the flour is again guarded in its transportation to the bakery. Thus, from the moment of harvesting through the actual baking of the matzah, the flour is carefully watched to ensure against any contact with water. The water, too, is carefully guarded to prevent any contact with wheat or other grain. It is drawn the night before the baking, and kept pure until the moment it is mixed with the flour to bake the shmurah matzah. Also in the bakery itself, shmurah matzot are under strict supervision to avoid any possibility of leavening during the baking process. This intensive process and careful guarding gives the shmurah matzah an added infusion of faith and sanctity—in fact, as the matzah is being made, all those involved constantly repeat, “L’shem matzot mitzvah”—“We are doing this for the sake of the mitzvah of matzah.” Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to useshmurah matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate. Click to order your own shmurah matzah. Passover Wine For each of the four cups at the Seder, it is preferable to use undiluted wine. However, if needed, the wine may be diluted with grape juice. (One who cannot drink wine may use grape juice alone.) One drinks a cup of wine four times during the Seder:

  1. At the conclusion of kiddush.
  2. After telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt, before eating the matzah ofMotzi Matzah.
  3. At the conclusion of the Grace After Meals.
  4. After reciting the Hallel.

It is preferable to drink the entire cup each time. However, it is sufficient to drink only the majority of each cup. How large a cup should be used? One that contains at least 3½ fluid ounces. The Bitter Herbs The bitter herbs are eaten once after the matzah (step 9 of the Seder), and then again with matzah in the Korech sandwich (step 10). How much bitter herbs should one eat each time? Three-quarters of an ounce (a little more than 7 grams). Either of two different types of bitter herbs may be used at the Seder, individually or in combination:

  1. Peeled and grated raw horseradish.
  2. Romaine lettuce. [Some suggest that the stalks be used rather than the leafy parts, because of the difficulty in properly examining and ridding the leafy parts of commonly present tiny insects.] Three-quarters of an ounce of stalks covers an area 3″ × 5″.

It is best to prepare all the Seder foods before the onset of the holiday, in order to avoid halachic questions. Three matzot are placed on top of each other on a plate or napkin, and then covered. (Some also have the custom to separate the matzot from each other with interleaved plates, napkins or the like.) The matzot are symbolic of the three castes of Jews: Priests, Levites, and Israelites. They also commemorate the three measures of fine flour that Abraham told Sarah to bake into matzah when they were visited by the three angels (Genesis 18:6). On a practical level, three matzot are needed so that when we break the middle matzah, we are still left with two whole ones to pronounce the hamotzi blessing (as required on Shabbat and holidays). On a cloth or plate placed above the three matzot, we place the following items: The Shank Bone A piece of roasted meat represents the lamb that was the special Paschal sacrifice on the eve of the exodus from Egypt, and annually, on the afternoon before Passover, in the Holy Temple. Since we can’t offer the Paschal sacrifice in the absence of the Holy Temple, we take care to use something that is relatively dissimilar to the actual offering. Accordingly, many communities have the custom to use a roasted chicken neck or the like. Preparation: Roast the neck on all sides over an open fire on the stove. Afterwards, some have the custom to remove the majority of the meat of the neck. Role in the Seder: The shank bone is not eaten. After the meal it is refrigerated, and used a second time on the Seder plate the following night. The Egg A hard-boiled egg represents the holiday offering brought in the days of the Holy Temple. The meat of this animal constituted the main part of the Passover meal. Preparation: Boil one egg per Seder plate, and possibly more for use during the meal. Role in the Seder: Place one egg on each plate. As soon as the actual meal is about to begin, remove the egg from the Seder plate and use during the meal. A popular way of eating these eggs is to chop and mix them with the saltwater which was set on the table. The eggs prepared this way are then served as an appetizer before the fish. The Bitter Herbs Bitter herbs (maror) remind us of the bitterness of the slavery of our forefathers in Egypt. Fresh grated horseradish, romaine lettuce, and endive are the most common choices. Preparation: This must be done before the holiday begins. Peel the raw horseradish roots, and rinse them off well. Note: Dry the roots very carefully, since they will be eaten with the matzah later on for the korech sandwich; to avoidgebrokts, not even a drop of water should be left on the horseradish. Next, grate the horseradish with a hand grater or electric grinder. (Whoever will be grating the horseradish will begin to shed copious tears or cough a lot. Covering the face with a cloth from the eyes downwards helps prevent inhalation of the strong, bitter odor.) The lettuce or endive leaves must be washed, carefully checked for insects, and thoroughly dried. You can instead use just the stalks, which are easier to clean and check. Place the horseradish on the Seder plate, on top of a few cleaned, dried leaves of romaine lettuce. Role in the Seder: After the recital of most of the haggadah comes the ritual handwashing. Then matzah is eaten, followed by some maror, followed in turn by a sandwich of matzah and maror. The Paste A mixture of apples, nuts and wine which resembles the mortar and brick made by the Jews when they toiled for Pharaoh. Preparation: Shell walnuts and peel apples and chop finely. Mix together and add a small amount of wine. Role in the Seder: This is used as a type of relish into which the maror is dipped (and then shaken off) before eating. The Vegetable A non-bitter root vegetable alludes to the backbreaking work of the Jews as slaves. The Hebrew letters of the word karpas can be arranged to spell “perech samech.” Perech means backbreaking work, and samech is numerically equivalent to 60, referring to 60 myriads, equaling 600,000, which was the number of Jewish males over 20 years of age who were enslaved in Egypt. Preparation: Peel an onion or boiled potato. Cut off a slice and place on Seder plate. On the table, next to the Seder plate, place a small bowl of salted water. Role in the Seder: After recital of kiddush, the family goes to the sink and ritually washes hands, but without saying the usual blessing. Then the head of the household cuts a small piece of the root vegetable used, dips it in saltwater, and gives each person at the table a very small piece over which they say the appropriate blessing. Care should be taken that each person eats less than 17 grams (about ½ ounce). The Lettuce The lettuce symbolizes the bitter enslavement of our fathers in Egypt. The leaves of romaine lettuce are not bitter, but the stem, when left to grow in the ground, turns hard and bitter. So it was with our enslavement in Egypt. At first the deceitful approach of Pharaoh was soft and sensible, and the work was done voluntarily and even for pay. Gradually, it evolved into forced and cruel labor. Preparation: Romaine lettuce is often very sandy. Wash each of the leaves separately, checking very carefully for insects. (Pat gently with a towel and let sit until completely dry, so that there will be no moisture to come in contact with the matzah.) Depending on how much romaine lettuce is needed, it can take several hours to prepare. This task should be completed before candle-lighting time on the first night. Prepare enough leaves for both nights and store in the refrigerator. Soaking of the romaine leaves may not be done on the holiday. Role in the Seder: The lettuce is used in conjunction with horseradish. It is used when eating the maror and when eating the matzah-and-maror sandwich. Place the leaves in two piles on the Seder plate, one under the maror and one separately at the bottom. Keep a stack of extra cleaned leaves handy in the refrigerator in case additional leaves are needed. The Seder Service in a Nutshell Click here for a more detailed Seder wizard, and here for a spiritual guide to the Seder. In Our Forefathers’ Footsteps At the Seder, every person should see himself as if he were going out of Egypt. Beginning with our Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we recount the Jewish people’s descent into Egypt and recall their suffering and persecution. We are with them as G‑d sends the Ten Plagues to punish Pharaoh and his nation, and follow along as they leave Egypt and cross the Sea of Reeds. We witness the miraculous hand of G‑d as the waters part to allow the Israelites to pass, then return to inundate the Egyptian legions. Kadesh—the Benediction The Seder service begins with the recitation of kiddush, proclaiming the holiness of the holiday. This is done over a cup of wine, the first of the four cups we will drink (while reclining) at the Seder. The Four Cups of Wine Why four cups? The Torah uses four expressions of freedom or deliverance in connection with our liberation from Egypt (see Exodus 6:6–7). Also, the Children of Israel had four great merits even while in exile: (1) They did not change their Hebrew names; (2) they continued to speak their own language, Hebrew; (3) they remained highly moral; (4) they remained loyal to one another. Wine is used because it is a symbol of joy and happiness. Why We Recline When drinking the four cups and eating the matzah, we lean on our left side to accentuate the fact that we are free people. In ancient times only free people had the luxury of reclining while eating. Urchatz—Purification We wash our hands in the usual, ritually prescribed manner as is done before a meal, but without the customary blessing. The next step in the Seder, Karpas, requires dipping food into water, which in turn mandates, according to Jewish law, that either the food be eaten with a utensil or that one’s hands be purified by washing. On the Seder eve we choose the less common observance to arouse the child’s curiosity. Karpas—the “Appetizer” A small piece of onion or boiled potato is dipped into saltwater and eaten (after reciting the blessing over vegetables). Dipping the karpas in saltwater is an act of pleasure and freedom, which further arouses the child’s curiosity. The Hebrew word karpas, when read backwards, alludes to the backbreaking labor performed by the 600,000 Jews in Egypt. [Samech has the numerical equivalent of 60 (representing 60 times 10,000), while the last three Hebrew letters spell perech, hard work.] The saltwater represents the tears of our ancestors in Egypt. Yachatz—Breaking the Matzah The middle matzah on the Seder plate is broken in two. The larger part is put aside for later use as the afikoman. This unusual action not only attracts the child’s attention once again, but also recalls G‑d’s splitting of the Sea of Reeds to allow the Children of Israel to cross on dry land. The smaller part of the middle matzah is returned to the Seder plate. This broken middle matzah symbolizes humility, and will be eaten later as the “bread of poverty.” Maggid—the Haggadah At this point, the poor are invited to join the Seder. The Seder tray is moved aside, a second cup of wine is poured, and the child, who by now is bursting with curiosity, asks the time-honored question: “Mah nishtanah ha-lailah hazeh mikol ha-leilot? Why is this night different from all other nights?” Why only matzah? Why the dipping? Why the bitter herbs? Why are we relaxing and leaning on cushions as if we were kings? The child’s questioning triggers one of the most significant mitzvot of Passover, which is the highlight of the Seder ceremony: the haggadah, telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The answer includes a brief review of history, a description of the suffering imposed upon the Israelites, a listing of the plagues visited on the Egyptians, and an enumeration of the miracles performed by the Almighty for the redemption of His people. Rochtzah—Washing Before the Meal After concluding the first part of the haggadah by drinking the second cup of wine (while reclining), the hands are washed again, this time with the customary blessings, as is usually done before eating bread. Motzi Matzah—We Eat the Matzah Taking hold of the three matzot (with the broken one between the two whole ones), recite the customary blessing before bread. Then, letting the bottom matzah drop back onto the plate, and holding the top whole matzah with the broken middle one, recite the special blessing “al achilat matzah.” Then break at least one ounce from each matzah and eat the two pieces together, while reclining. Maror—the Bitter Herbs Take at least one ounce of the bitter herbs. Dip it in the charoset, then shake the latter off and make the blessing “al achilat maror.” Eat without reclining. Korech—the Sandwich In keeping with the custom instituted by Hillel, the great Talmudic sage, a sandwich of matzah and maror is eaten. Break off two pieces of the bottom matzah, which together should be at least one ounce. Again, take at least one ounce of bitter herbs and dip them in the charoset. Place this between the two pieces of matzah, say “kein asah Hillel . . .” and eat the sandwich while reclining. Shulchan Orech—the Feast The holiday meal is now served. We begin the meal with a hard-boiled egg dipped into saltwater. A rabbi was once asked why Jews eat eggs on Passover. “Because eggs symbolize the Jew,” the rabbi answered. “The more an egg is burned or boiled, the harder it gets.” Note: The chicken neck is not eaten at the Seder. Tzafun—Out of Hiding After the meal, the half-matzah which had been “hidden,” set aside for the afikoman(“dessert”), is taken out and eaten. It symbolizes the Paschal lamb, which was eaten at the end of the meal. Everyone should eat at least 1½ ounces of matzah, reclining, before midnight. After eating the afikoman, we do not eat or drink anything except for the two remaining cups of wine. Berach—Blessings After the Meal A third cup of wine is filled and Grace is recited. After the Grace we recite the blessing over wine and drink the third cup while reclining. Now we fill the cup of Elijah and our own cups with wine. We open the door and recite the passage which is an invitation to the Prophet Elijah, the harbinger of the coming of Moshiach, our righteous Messiah. Hallel—Songs of Praise At this point, having recognized the Almighty and His unique guidance of the Jewish people, we go still further and sing His praises as L‑rd of the entire universe. After reciting the Hallel, we again recite the blessing over wine and drink the fourth cup, reclining. Nirtzah—Acceptance Having carried out the Seder service properly, we are sure that it has been well received by the Almighty. We then say “Leshanah haba’ah bee-rushalayim—Next year in Jerusalem.”

Keeping it Kosher in LA’s Kosher Corridor: Soul Food

In this episode of Soul Food, our host Kiran Deol heads over to LA’s Kosher Corridor to get wise to the ways one can keep it kosher. She gets schooled by the local butcher, and discovers that today’s kosher food and drink is much more than just matzo balls and sweet, syrupy wine. Kosher cuisine can be contemporary, or really any style of food—be it burritos or a lamb belly “bacon” sandwich with homemade sriracha—as long as one follows strict kosher guidelines. Kiran’s exploration of where the spirit meets the stomach ends with an insightful invite for a Friday night sampling of a Shabbat dinner.

Krula Camp Tish B’Av Play: Churban Habayis

28.07.2015 צפו בפעילות המיוחדת במחנה ‘נחלת צבי’ קראלי שבהרי הקטסקיל שם למדו התלמידים באופן חי ומוחשי על סדר העבודה שהיה בזמן שבית המקדש היה קיים: בעוד הילדים ה”כהנים” עסוקים בעבודה בהדלקת המנורה והקרבת הקרבנות, הגיעו הילדים ה”רומאים” והציתו אש בכותל העזרה שנשרף עד היסוד. ה”גולים” ישבו לארץ ובכו על החורבן וכל המשתתפים במחנה נמס לבבם לנוכח המחזה שהטעימם מעין הצער הגדול שהיה בעת חורבן הבית Tu B’Av From Wikipedia, Tu B’Av (Hebrew: ט”ו באב, the fifteenth of the month Av) is a minor Jewish holiday. In modern-day Israel, it is celebrated as a holiday of love (Hebrew: חג האהבה‎, Hag HaAhava), similar to Valentine’s Day.[1] It has been said to be a “great day for weddings” According to the Mishna, Tu B’Av was a joyous holiday in the days of the Temple in Jerusalem, marking the beginning of the grape harvest. Yom Kippur marked the end of the grape harvest. On both dates, the unmarried girls of Jerusalem dressed in white garments, which they borrowed,[2] and went out to dance in the vineyards (Babylonian Talmud, tractate Ta’anit 30b-31a).[3] That same section in the Talmud states that there were no holy days as happy for the Jews as Tu B’Av and Yom Kippur.[4] The holiday celebrated the wood-offering brought in the temple (see Nehemiah 10:35). Josephus refers to it as the Feast of Xylophory (“Wood-bearing”).[5] Photo by Wikipedia read more… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_B%27Av

Dr Maurice Mizrahi – The secrets of Jewish survival (Tish’a b’Av)

22.07.2015 A few days from now is Tish’a b’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. Many catastrophes befell the Jews on that day, the Ninth of Av, including the destruction of the two temples in Jerusalem. Each of these tragedies, by itself, could have led to the disappearance of Judaism. But none did. Why? What made the Jews survive as a distinct people, when so many other civilizations have disappeared? [captions available — click on “cc”]

Orthodox Jews Taking Jiu Jitsu Lessons for Self Defense

21.07.2015 A new version of martial arts is being taught to and practiced by Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. CBS2’s Scott Rapoport talked to a man who has been called the “most dangerous Jew in NYC” — Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him. Former NYC probation officers and Washington Heights native Steve Isaak, 67, has developed a personalized style of martial arts called Shima Juijitsu. He’s been teaching it for more than 40 years to a devoted following of the city’s most observant, Orthodox Jews, in a Brighton Beach studio. Part of his mission is for it to be self-defense from anti-semetism. “Everyone need self-defense but they need it more than most, based on the history of Jewish people,” Isaak said. His students come in all shapes, sizes, ages and sexes. There are women, too, who want to learn to defend themselves — like Chavi Charlap. And what does she get from the class? “I get confidence,” Charlap replied. Because they are Orthodox, the women train separately from the men. And though touching is traditionally verboten, some of his female students permit it during training, saying Isaak’s classes are conducted with respect to their Orthodox values. “If I’m in a life threatening situation and because of this I can save my life and other lives then it’s definitely worth it,” Charlap said. Isaak turned to martial arts as a young, 12-year-old boy after he says he was beaten up by two older kids. By the time he got to college, he was teaching self-defense. He opened his own martial arts school shortly after that. Isaak says the secret and power of Shima Juijitsu is that you don’t have to be athletic or powerful. That it is based on efficiency, not strength, Rapoport reported. The cerebral Sensai says he teaches his students a series of moves that can deflect and derail an attacker. His student Rabbi David Goldshyn with the Jewish Center Of Brighton Beach says it’s effective and necessary. “You don’t want to get into a fight every two seconds,” Goldshyn said. “But you also want to have the confidence that if something happens you can protect yourself.” Through the years, Isaak says he’s taught Shima Juijitsu to cops, prosecutors, judges and even some in Israel’s defense forces. Isaak says he now now lives in Myrtle Beach, but comes back to Brighton Beach every two weeks for 5 days at a time to teach his Orthodox students. He says his students demand it.

Strictly Kosher series

All rights belong to ITV. The Jewish community in Manchester is a kaleidoscope of tradition, religion and extravagance. This documentary film opens a window into their lives and shows a wide variety of ritual and celebrations. Strictly Kosher, filmed, produced and directed by Chris Malone, revolves around three families and their friends and paints a colourful picture of the juxtaposition between the many different personalities and levels of religious observance in Manchester’s Jewish community. It offers an insight into lifestyles which range from one extreme — traditional and strict – to the other — modern and extravagant – but are bound together by one faith. The film follows Bernette Clarke, a very lively and modern Orthodox Jewish mother of three. Bernette talks openly about her faith, explains the traditional approach her family has to the Sabbath and other Jewish festivals, and offers her views on the wider Jewish community. Joel Lever and his wife Joanne also allow the cameras into their lives. Joel’s family are traditionally Jewish by birth, but he admits they are not very religious. Joel puts his all into his fashion boutique ‘Mon Amie’ which is frequented by the Jewish ladies of Prestwich — by making the Jewish women the talk of the town, he feels he is serving the local community. 83-year-old Jack Aizenberg tells the ultimate rags to riches story. He was just eleven years old at the outbreak of the Second World War and his family were killed in Belzec Extermination camp in 1942 when he was just 14. Against the odds Jack survived and made his way to Manchester, England in 1945. Jack feels that religion is not as important as basic common humanity and does not practice all the requirements of the Jewish faith, but he’s a celebrated survivor venerated by the Jewish community in Manchester. Having made a successful career in the luggage trade, Jack is thrilled to have the money to throw his grandson a lavish Bar Mitzvah — a special moment caught on camera.

Kindly donate here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ja…

4,000 years ago the father and mother of all Spirituality, Abraham and Sarah, set up the first JamShalom tent in the crossroads of ancient Canaan. Three Holy Chillers stopped by their tent for some great food and great company (and rumor has it that they also jammed up a storm), and the rest is history. Fast-forward to 1965: The Grateful Dead are born, and holy chilling tents are suddenly popping up on every crossroads across the country. Jump 44 more years to 2009, and PHISHalom sets up its first tent on Phish-Lot, bringing together the ancient Jewish traditions of hospitality and good food, joined with the love and family we first encountered on Dead-Lot. Six years later, and PHISHalom and JamShalom have become a familiar home to hundreds of fans at Phish concerts and music festivals, and the Golden Shore has become a regular destination for Holy Chillers who find their way to Israel. Look for us on the road at your favorite concerts and festivals this summer, and stop by for a holy chill, some great food, an open jam, and endless friendship

Farewell to Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival 2014

2014 brought the winds of war to our region, throwing a shadow over the festival that threated to unravel the delicate fabric and ideals upon which it is based. But despite this, international and local artists came to Jerusalem imbued with a sense of commitment and a renewed belief in the message that calls on the Middle East’ peoples to open their hearts and allow music to unite us. In what is now an annual tradition, the festival offers unique experiences that bring together international and Israeli artists in performances under a canopy of stars, opposite Jerusalem’s ancient walls and in houses of prayer. Each year we invite audiences to take part in “A Night Stroll,” a magical white night at the Tower of David comprising performances, ceremonies, some whispering and a series of “Testimony Encounters” — guided tours that trace the sacred sounds that play year-round in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem Day, 2015: Rightful Owners of the Temple Mount

17.05.2015 The holiday known as ‘Jerusalem Day’ is observed in Israel every year on the Hebrew date of Iyar 28 – the day corresponding with June 7th, 1967 on which the city of Jerusalem was liberated and united by the paratrooper brigade of the Israel Defense Forces in the Six Day War. 48 years later to the day, on May 17th, 2015, a crowd numbering 1,000 Jews converged at the gate of the Temple Mount, eager to ascend the mountain in joyous acknowledgment of the miraculous return of the city to Jewish sovereignty and in fulfillment of the Biblical commandment to revere the place of the Holy Temple. Most of all, they came to pray at the holy site. The discriminatory practices and self-styled, anti-democratic ‘rules’ of the police prevented Jewish prayer, but once again fully allowed the demonic incitement of crowds of Muslim thugs and mercenaries who dogged every step of the Jewish pilgrims on the Mount and generally did their best to cause the Jews misery. And while the Jewish worshipers waited on line in the sun for as long as three hours for a chance to ascend even briefly on this special day, many were turned away in disappointment. But the Jews who gathered that morning at the Mugrabi Gate waiting to ascend to the Temple Mount had the honor of welcoming and hearing a hero in their midst: renowned Torah scholar Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder and president of the Temple Institute, was himself an IDF paratrooper who fought for the liberation of the Temple Mount on this very day, 48 years ago. The rabbi addressed the enthusiastic crowd and spoke of his experiences as a soldier in this very spot on that fateful day. Rabbi Ariel recalled his fallen comrades who gave their lives for the return of the Temple Mount to the Jewish people, and encouraged the assembled to continue in the heroes’ footsteps by demonstrating Jewish presence and rightful ownership of the Mount.

“Jerusalem of Gold” (Hebrew: ירושלים של זהב‎, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav) is a popular Israeli song written by Naomi Shemer in 1967. The original song described the Jewish people’s 2000-year longing to return to Jerusalem; Shemer added a final verse after the Six-Day War to celebrate Jerusalem’s unification under Israeli control. At that time, the Old City was under Jordanian rule; Jews had been barred from entering, and many holy sites had been desecrated. Only three weeks after the song was published, the Six-Day War broke out. The song was the battle cry and morale booster of the Israeli troops. Shemer even sang it for them before the war and festival, making them among the first in the world to hear it. On 7 June, the Israel Defense Forces captured the eastern part of Jerusalem and the Old City from the Jordanians. When Shemer heard the paratroopers singing “Jerusalem of Gold” at the Western Wall, she wrote a final verse, reversing the phrases of lamentation found in the second verse. The line about shofars sounding from the Temple Mount is a reference to an event that actually took place on 7 June. This beautiful version is from the late OFRA HAZA.

The Festival of Shavuot

Intimately connected to the land of Israel, Shavuot is the festival of the bringing of the first-fruits to the Holy Temple. Shavuot is also the anniversary of the Sinai revelation and the receiving of Torah by Israel, and since the destruction of the Holy Temple the emphasis of Shavuot has been Torah study. Ultimately, Torah study and the bringing of the first-fruits are both expressions of the centrality of Torah in our lives. When we build the Holy Temple we best exemplify the fulfillment of Torah in this world by the bringing of the first-fruits.

Prominent NY Rabbi Arthur Schneier Honored With Papal Knighthood

03.05.2015 Lenny Bruce famously said that even a Catholic in New York is Jewish, but that didn’t stop one of the city’s most prominent Jewish leaders from accepting a touch of the Holy See on Monday. Rabbi Arthur Schneier of Manhattan’s Park East Synagogue was knighted and made a member of the Papal Order of St. Sylvester at a ceremony on the Upper East Side, joining luminaries such as industrialist Oskar Schindler and comedian Bob Hope who have held the title. “It’s Pope Francis’ very touching and tender way of confirming [Rabbi Schneier] and the good works that he’s done on behalf of religious freedom, international peace and justice,” said longtime pal and neighbor Cardinal Timothy Dolan, head of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. The cardinal grinned broadly as he pinned the order’s gold cross to the 84-year-old Holocaust survivor’s lapel. “It’s an honor.” During his career, Rabbi Schneier campaigned vigorously alongside other faith leaders for greater religious freedom and tolerance, as well as helping to build ties between Jews and Roman Catholics following World War II. “In 1965, in the height of religious persecution in the Soviet Union, I mobilized with Robert Kennedy religious leaders of all faiths in an appeal to our first religious freedom mission to Moscow, but via Rome,” Rabbi Schneier said. “We need to strive together…for a world of mutual acceptance—not tolerance, acceptance.” Rabbi Schneier has been associated with the Park East Synagogue since 1962. After the ceremony, the new knight shared a Champagne toast with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Mayor David Dinkins and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, as well as half a dozen of the city’s most prominent religious leaders. “I’m here to pay tribute to a dear friend and a good leader,” Dr. Kissinger said. “He’s contributed to the solution of one our great problems,” promoting peace between the major world faiths. The knighthood, which may be bestowed on Catholics and non-Catholics alike, is intended to honor significant contributions to humanity. The ancient order’s origin is somewhat murky, though it apparently was first intended to honor lay Catholics who showed intense devotion to the church. In 1905, Pope Pius X changed the Order of St. Sylvester to include non-Catholic honorees, separating it from the so-called Golden Militia, of which it had previously been a part. In addition to the gold cross, the official St. Sylvester regalia includes a red-and-black uniform and a sword. “You mentioned about my getting a sword? I have a problem with a sword, though,” Rabbi Schneier insisted. “I’m for peace!” “Turn it into a plowshare,” Cardinal Dolan suggested.

Jerusalem Day

From Wikipedia Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים‎, Yom Yerushalayim) is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalemand the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. The day is officially marked by state ceremonies and memorial services. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to mark the regaining of access to the Western Wall.[1] While the day has lost its significance for most secular Israelis,[2][3][4] the day is still very much celebrated by Israel’s Religious Zionist community[5][6] with parades and additional prayers in the synagogue.Photo by Wikipedia Read More Button--orange

A new anti-Semitism? Why thousands of Jewish citizens are leaving France

Some Jewish citizens in France say there is a rising tide of a new, more dangerous anti-Semitism in the country. In turn, thousands are leaving for Israel and other countries. In an effort to reassure Jewish people in France that they are safe, the government has taken strict measures against anti-Semitic demonstrations. Special correspondent Martin Seemungal reports.

Why have anti-Semitic attacks on French Jews nearly doubled in one year?

08.02.2015 Last month’s terror attack at a Kosher supermarket in Paris called attention to rising anti-Semitism in France. This week, attackers slashed three soldiers guarding a Jewish community center in Nice. French authorities believe a small number of radicalized young men from North Africa are responsible for a disproportio
