  • Is It Time for a New Jesus Movement Among Jewish Millennials?

    11/05/2017 7:47:57 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | November 5, 2017 | Michael Brown
    When I came to faith in Jesus in 1971 as a heroin-shooting, LSD-using, 16-year-old, Jewish, hippie rock drummer, I had no idea I was part of a worldwide spiritual happening known as the Jesus People Movement or Jesus Revolution. It even merited a cover story on Time Magazine, June 21, 1971. Interestingly, Jewish young people made up a conspicuously high number of these newly born-again hippies and rebels and radicals in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Today, a new poll commissioned by Jews for Jesus makes me wonder if we could be on the verge of a similar spiritual movement today,...

    An ultra-Orthodox Jewish member of Israel's parliament has resigned after prominent rabbis criticised him for attending his gay nephew's wedding. Yigal Guetta revealed in a radio interview on Sunday that he had gone to the ceremony two years ago. He said that although same-sex marriage was against his religious beliefs he had wanted to make his nephew happy. But five rabbis accused Mr Guetta of desecrating God's name and demanded that the religious Shas party fire him. Same-sex weddings held in Israel are not sanctioned by the state. However, couples who wed abroad can register officially as married couples. In...

    In nothing short of a travesty and insult to the pro-Palestinian mindset of a new generation, three gay Jews marched in last weekends Dyke March carrying a pride flag emblazoned with the Star of David. A glaring mistake as Israel is frowned upon in modern-day American culture. As is in todays new anything goes but being a pro-Israel Jew atmosphere, the miscreants were kicked to the curb by the event organizers because the Star of David made people feel unsafe. Surely one would think this gay pride group thought in advance to stock and supply the necessary items to alleviate...

    This weekend, at a lesbian march in Chicago, three women carrying Jewish pride flags rainbow flags embossed with a Star of David were kicked out of the celebration on the grounds that their flags were a trigger. An organizer of the Dyke March told the Windy City Times that the fabric made people feel unsafe and that she and the other members of the Dyke March collective didnt want anything that can inadvertently or advertently express Zionism at the event. Laurel Grauer, one of the women who was ejected, said shed been carrying that Jewish pride flag...

    Are Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria an obstacle to peace? Are the millions of Arabs living inside Israel obstacles to peace? Prime Minister Netanyahu makes it clear that ethnic cleansing and judenrein are terms that will no longer be a part of the future of the Land of Israel. Ethnic cleansing for peace what the Arab side proposes is nothing more than blatant hatred of Jews and Israel.
  • Which Ice Cream Brand Is Big, Gay And Defiantly Kosher?

    Kosher ice cream lovers have a lot to celebrate this Pride month, specifically in the form of a pint of Big Gay Ice Cream. Thats because when the ice cream truck-turned-brick-and-mortar shop decided to package its popular soft serve to be sold nationally, it sought and received kosher certification. The pints of soft-serve deliciousness, which debuted in March and are sold in grocery stores and online, are officially under the auspices of the kashrut division of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. Or, as it is colloquially known, the OU. While its understandable that an up-and-coming brand would...

    Holocaust survivor Margot Herschenbaum was brought to tears at Yad Vashem on Tuesday, after a replica of her late sisters personal album was gifted to US President Donald Trump during his visit to the memorial. This place and this entire nation are testimony to the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people and the hope that light can shine the path beyond the darkness, Trump said, donning a kippa as he delivered a short speech outside the Hall of Remembrance where he had laid a wreath together with first lady Melania and rekindled the eternal flame.

    Joining her father President Donald Trump on his trip through the Middle East, Ivanka Trump has dressed more modestly than usual, and that streak has continued during their visit to Israel. The first daughter was photographed wearing a rarely seen accessory (at least on her): a hat. She wore the small navy hat perched on one side on her head, with a headband securing the velvet topper. Her hair was styled in a soft chignon at the nape of her neck. Hats are worn by Orthodox Jewish women following the concept of Tzniut, which is Hebrew for modesty or humility...

Its all about the International Jew Conspiracy; the Rothschilds; the Rockefellers and the Roosevelts and others (who are all really, actually Jews). But they really dont know the Jew at all. I am not a religious Jew. I am an inculcated cultural Jew. Im a propagandized Jeweducated in my distant youth, by some minor Talmudic and rabbinical purveyors of Jewry.

    It appears that Russia is leading the way towards a much-needed rejection of "religious freedom" in the West: Source from NRO: Russias crackdown on religious activity took a major step forward this week as the Justice Ministry banned Jehovahs Witnesses. Russia has steadily curtailed rights to evangelize in recent years, but this move signals their commitment to aggressively policing private religious activity. The Russian supreme court ruled that Jehovahs Witnesses amount to an extremist group, and therefore the government is shutting down their headquarters and local chapters, seizing their property, and banning them from meeting.

    flight from Kiev to Israel was delayed for more than an hour on Thursday night after an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man insisted the overhead television screens were retracted or turned off. In keeping with traditional religious teachings and practices, the passenger argued that he did not want his children to watch any TV or films during the flight with budget Israeli airline UP. Despite his verbal protest, flight attendants were unable to adhere to the man's request and they issued eye masks instead.

    The case of a British Jewish child forced to leave his Berlin school after being subjected to anti-Semitic violence has provoked outrage and soul-searching in Germany. The 14-year-old, who cannot be named under child protection laws, was beaten, kicked and threatened with a replica gun after he revealed to fellow pupils that he was Jewish. *snip* His British mother, who asked not to be named to protect the identity of her son, told the The Daily Telegraph the school had done little to stop the bullying. They told us this is normal for adolescents from this background, that theyre just...

    Reecently at March For Life, an annual rally held in Washington, D.C., I hoped to meet and write about other pro-life Jewish marchers. The record-setting crowd was thick and palpably upbeat after the election of Donald Trump and his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. With Donald Trumps latest threats to defund the largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, unless it ceases performing the procedure, and Gorsuchs confirmation, those who were present at the March are undoubtedly more energized now. But ultimately I could not find any other Jewish participants. In fact, after the March I joked to my...

    The Central Council of Jews in Germany has described bullying allegations at the Friedenauer Gemeinschaftsschule in Berlin as anti-Semitism of the ugliest form. After a 14-year-old British Jewish boy switched schools in Berlin claiming he had been violently bullied by Muslim classmates, pressure is growing on the government to react. The teenagers parents told the Jewish Chronicle in late March that they had taken him out of the Friedenauer Gemeinschaftsschule in Schneberg and sent him to an international school instead. The family had picked the school, which has many pupils from Turkey and the Arab world, after they had read...

    Authorities have arrested a 19-year-old dual U.S.-Israeli citizen whom they have reason to believe is behind the recent threats on Jewish community centers across the U.S., the Jerusalem Post has learned. As of Thursday, with a gag order on the probe lifted by the Rishon Lezion Magistrates Court, which extended his detention, sources indicate that most of the cases of threats against Jewish communities and organizations, though not all, led investigators back to Israel. The male suspect reportedly used computer programs to hide his location and has made similar threats in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.In recent weeks, over100 threats...
