No Anti-Obama Jews Wanted in These Synagogues
PJ Media ^ | 6/1/12 | Abraham H. Miller

Posted on 06/01/2012 9:41:47 AM PDT by Nachum

Inside the synagogue, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who mindlessly called Israeli settlements obstacles to peace, was going to speak. Outside B’nai Torah, in Boca Raton, Florida, members were anxiously pointing out Alan Bergstein, writer and pro-Israel activist, to the reinforced law enforcement detail. Bergstein and other anti-Obama Jews were denied entrance and told by law enforcement to leave the property.

How far and how shamelessly some in the Jewish community have sunk in their embrace of Obama is ineradicably seen in this action. A Jew being denied entrance to a synagogue brings to mind Germany in the 1930s. This is a poignant and symbolic imagery written in infamy, an image that one would think Jews would avoid at nearly all costs. But this Jewish congregation gave it not a second thought.

What would Bergstein and the others have done? Would they have detonated suicide bombs? Created a physically threatening disturbance? Of course not! They would most likely have asked Rice some difficult questions. They could have pointed out that Rice and Obama adviser Samantha Power have a long history of being anti-Israel. Power, in fact, advocated using American troops to create a Palestinian state that would be forged with American firepower pointed at Israelis. The anti-Obama Jews might have noted that Obama has been so pro-Palestinian that he carved out positions on limiting the expansion of Jerusalem that exceed the demands of both Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat.

Days later, just down the road in Miami, in another Jewish congregation, Temple Israel, a conflict was stirring over the planned speech of Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz,

I had a local forum conversation this morning and one of the "progressives" assured me that they would never condone censorship in any form.

It's amazing how they can lie that way, it makes me wonder if they're even aware of what they're doing.

I believe the term is “Sonderkommandos”.

This is right around the corner from me, it’s a Reform congregation so no one should be surprised that they are libs. Some people never learn, yet sound so intellectual to themselves. Probably Irv Slosberg’s temple, the publicity slut that he is. The best thing I can say about this group is that they are the older generation. The younger Jews in Boca are a lot smarter about politics than the older generation, who would smile at FDR if he manned the gas chambers himself.

And people wonder why Reform synagogues are empty most weeks.
The irony is that their leftist political activism is antithetical to the founding purpose of Reform Judaism.

I was referring to the other Jews in the Consideration camps that collaborated with the Nazis in running the camp to save their own lives for one more day.

I was in a reform synagogue for a bar Mitzvah not long ago and when I saw the prayer book I nearly threw up. Everything is so fake prettied and watered down. The melodies are different and the words are different and the L-rd seems to be LGBT in gender.

I thought that all commandments had at their base “That which is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.” I think in Reform Judaism, the base of all the commandments is “Diversity and total acceptance is higher than life itself.”

Not a fan of the Nazi comparisons in the article.

The reformed “temple” is theoretically a private organization and can bar anyone it desires from entry.

They fact they confuse the NY Times for the Torah is but one of their heresies.

No Democrat has ever been elected while getting less than 67% of the Jewish vote. Obama is currently at 61%.

Frankly, I can't understand how any Jewish congregation could invite Susan Rice to speak in view of her anti-Israel, anti-semitic, pro-Islamic history. To compound the error by telling the police to block the anti-Obama folks from entering the synagogue makes the Boca Raton congregation's actions even more obnoxious.

Perhaps the Reform Jewish 'Rats who sponsored the event were trying to get even for the cancellation of Wasserman-Schultz's appearance in the Miami temple.

Unfortunately, Abraham Miller, the writer of the posted article, expects too much cordiality and magnanimity from today's "liberals." Perhaps he doesn't get how the definition of "liberal" has morphed over the past century from one who values individual freedom to one who advocates repression of political and ideological dissidents.

anti-Jewish? anti-Israel?! Hot diggity! Now we can show how open-minded and inclusive we are, and will even accept her ban on all dissenters (not that they’d be welcome anyway)!

I can’t forget how pro-Israel Susan Rice was at her confirmation hearing. How do you say Kabuki dance in Hebrew?

I decided to quite going to the local shul when the rabbi went to Israel for the "Peace Now" groovy putz pukers. Then asked for my name to be removed completely after the LBGT( did I write that correctly) the pro Obama bimah blabbing and J street promo speakers.

one can only tolerate so much from the intolerant. Reaching out to the muslims and showing them the security room sorta reminded me of hezekiah showing some Babylonian nobodies the jewels and defenses of the kingdom

NO MORE!

Wow. Sounds like one of those LGBT/"diversity"/liberalism-worshipping Unitarian "churches"...

I believe the term is “Sonderkommandos”.

Another term, perhaps more descriptive is “Offen Juden”, a reference to the sad reality that the Jews of German, the ones who did survive the “Final Solution” under Hitler’s “National Socialism”, went to what was to become Israel and created a socialist nation.

There are those who refuse to learn from history. FloriDUH Jewish Reform ‘temples’ are full of them. Sadly, the disease of collectivism in infecting Conservative Synagogues, as well.

Most of the Orthodox still are not socialist.

Dear Yaelle,

If you found the Deformed Bar Mitzvah ceremony disturbing, consider exercising your gag reflex by attending a newly approved Conservative ceremony for a “Queer marriage”.

Yes, those “ceremonies” were approved by the Conservatives. Whether their “inclusiveness” will be judged harshly in the “Higher Court” is as yet unknown (and may be unknowable), but odds in Vegas a running 25 to 1 against the “Queer Marriage” ceremony approval.

;-)

“I can’t forget how pro-Israel Susan Rice was at her confirmation hearing. How do you say Kabuki dance in Hebrew?”

The correct answer is: “Liberal”. “Democrat” is a synonym.

Thanks. Usually not bad from the bimah but the classes and sometimes even Torah studies were just weird. I wish there was a conservative or orthodox shul around here.

kul tov,
