35 Burst results for "Jews"
Dennis Shares a Recent Realization
"I wanted to share with you a realization I've had this realization for so long, but it really hit home last Saturday, so Saturday is the Jewish Sabbath. And I go to synagogue each week. It's actually semi dog that I and two others founded. And it's filled with wonderful people. Non Jews tend to do some Christians who love it or watch it on Zoom, but certainly in person. As well. Anyway, about a 150 140 150 come in person about the same number of zoom. And last week, for the first time, since the lockdowns, the enforced lockdowns we violated lockdowns when we logistically possible, we don't have our own building. So we were at the mercy of others to a certain extent. So last Saturday, the city of Los Angeles was doing electrical power work on the block, which the building is located. And so we had no ability to attend synagogue. Instead, I taught zoom, and I mentioned in my talk, anyone who thinks zoom or Skype or whatever it might be. Gives you anything near the experience of in person. Is fooling themselves and and or fooling you. If you think that electronic transmission comes anywhere near in person, then it might, the only possibility is that you are electronically communicating with people whom you don't care about.
Dr. Jeff Myers: All Scripture Is Inspired by God
"Doctor Jeff Meyers truth changes everything. Should we just kind of do the Andy Stanley thing and just kind of say Matthew Mark Luke and John leviticus, you're a waste of time. To me, that's a grave mistake, Charlie. And I'm not here to pick theological fights, but the truth is, all of scripture is inspired by God, the apostle Paul said, and is profitable for teaching, correcting, rebuking and training and righteousness. He was not at that point as far as we can tell talking about Matthew Mark Luke and John. He was talking about the Old Testament. When you look at John, again, we were talking about John. We love the book of John. You read John chapter one. So powerful. John chapter one, Andrew goes to his brother Peter. It says we found the messiah, a little bit lighter, Philip goes to his body, Nathaniel, and says, we have found the one Moses wrote about in the law and so did the prophets, Jesus, son of Joseph from Nazareth, and that's that famous passage Nathaniel says, can anything good come out of Nazareth? Like anybody who's watched the chosen would remember that that moment, but in that moment you realize these disciples believed that Jesus was the one who had been written about in the Torah and this all of these prophecies from all of time, which were known by everyday Jewish people, including fishermen, were coming true, and they were coming true in this man. You can not, I believe, understand Jesus unless you understand that he was a Jew. And that he studied Torah, how do we know that he studied tour because when he was 12 years of age, just before age 13, which would be the official and copernic or something? Well, he went his parents actually were in Jerusalem and they left because they thought he was in the crowd and they realized he wasn't there. He came back. And what was happening? Jesus was sitting with the teachers of the law. The scripture there is so fascinating. It says that they were amazed. He was asking questions and they were amazed at his answers. And everybody knows in education, the height of knowing a subject is if you can ask the right questions about it.
Should Christians Learn the Greek Tradition? Dr. Jeff Myers Explains
"You mentioned the book of John, which is my favorite book, the recommend to people. Yes. It's my second favorite book of the Bible genesis is my favorite and then John and proverbs as well. I appreciate everyone. So with you. Yeah. Isaiah? Isaiah? Yeah, I actually, you know, it's so funny. Your zone was just on our program. I don't know if you know it or not. And he was so insistent that I have to really study Isaiah. I really had never had a chance to have read it, but I haven't really studied it. Obviously the prophecy is profound and confirms our faith in many ways. But let me ask you, do you think that because you're a very studied man and very thoughtful and your book is very clear, do you think that Christians should understand the Greek tradition? The better understand the context and also the language that is used in the gospel. So understanding the original languages is important. If you can at least get a commentary, a Bible dictionary, look at some of the words that are being used. And I would say, so the Old Testament is almost all in Hebrew, the New Testament is almost all in Greek. So those are two ancient languages. People aren't that familiar with. The Hebrew, I think, is super important to understand. I've been talking with a lot of orthodox Jews about the nature of the Hebrew language. They believe that the prototype language that all language really came out of that. Of course, Moses would have been that was a total groundbreaker how educated he was. The brilliant philosopher that he was and then also a leader. So he's rightly well thought of among Jews and among Christians. But understanding the original language is really important. Because what these words mean. Like we talked about logos earlier. That's such a cool word. And if you just say, oh, logos means word. No, you really haven't gotten it. There's a whole philosophy underneath. That's right. The same
The Plight of Men Lacking Fathers in Their Lives
"To say that, you know, this is as basic as it gets in the Bible. But this is not only for Jews. This is not only for white people. This is not, this is central. The ideas of the Bible are for every human being. And this idea of the blessing, this biblical idea is God's idea, and when I think just the other day, I was talking on my program about the plight of African American men and how at the heart of the dysfunction in that community. And the rates of crime at the heart of it all is the lack of the father. Broken families. People usually don't have the guts to talk about that Barack Obama had the guts for three minutes and then Jesse Jackson attacked him and he backed way off. There was an historic opportunity. He backed off. Daniel Patrick moynihan talked about this in the 60s. This was a liberal from New York, liberal senator, he brought this up, studies show. This was in the 60s. So this is at the heart of reality. If you want to deal with the problems in culture, you need to bless men. You need father figures to bless young men when you do not have that, the trouble that ensues is infinite. It is everywhere and we are seeing that. So
Who Really Puts Forth 'Jim Crow 2.0' Voting Laws?
"But back in 2012 when Mitt Romney was threatening to win The White House he was a racist who was going to put black people back in chains That's what Joe Biden called him This is nothing new for him This is what he's always been All right so let's hear him finish Jim Crow two is about two insidious things Voter suppression and election subversion It's no longer about who gets to vote It's about making it harder to vote It's about who gets to count the vote And whether your vote counts at all let me just say something Every single bill that Democrats put forth that they call you know we call them voter integrity laws To ensure that only people who are legally entitled to vote vote that the chain of custody of those secret ballots are sound and secure and only valid ballots are counted in a proper methodical way so that there is no opportunity For fraud That's what voter integrity is and anyone who cares about free and fair elections should want those things But you know this Jew crow two it's really about who gets to vote and who gets to count those Let me just be clear That's exactly what every Democrats law is When it comes to elections every single election law the Democrats pass are also about who gets to vote and who gets to count the vote No difference Except that Republicans for the most part put forth laws that actually ensure That both of those things are secure and legitimate
Black Queer Studies? Are You Serious?
"Queer studies. I'm just curious. As a member of the minority called Jews, with the average Jewish liberal be happy if the schools of their state all taught Jewish queer lives, let's study Jewish history and we're going to study Jewish queer lives. I don't know. It's an interesting question to ask. Given that queers quote unquote, the term that they're using comprise about 3% of the population, no matter what, why would you even have a course on 3% of the population isolated. You should never disqualify a gay individual from history, obviously. I mean, tchaikovsky was gay to the best of our knowledge. Would you give a course on Russian music or even great classical music of the late 19th century and exclude tchaikovsky? What would you want to actually give a course on queer composers? Why is that important? Black queer studies. It explores the concept of the queer of color critique. Grounded in black feminism and intersectionality. This isn't left wing clap trap, right? This is a genuine black studies. As a black study's lens that shifts sexuality studies towards racial analysis, you understand that what that is, I don't. But as soon as I see intersectionality, I know it's propaganda.
The Importance of Elevating Experiences
"Since we were last together, I was in Florida for ten days. And I have a thought that I want to bounce off you. And there's so much to talk about. It's a little intimidating, actually. So I have a thought, and I know your resonate to this. I was with Jordan Peterson and 6 scholars. I don't know whether to say other scholars or 6 scholars. You can say other. Okay, thank you. No, no, it is interesting. I debate a debate that. Anyway, we were studying the book of exodus for the daily wire. They will eventually have millions of views, which is astonishing, because one of my biggest desires in life was to bring the Torah to the world. Jews shouldn't hide it. It's the greatest of all the Bible, the first 5 books are the most important. So we were we were doing this. And so here's my thought. The effect it had on me. Imagine this, I'm brought to Florida to participate in this with truly 6, 7 luminous minds. I don't normally say that. And luminous hearts, they were good people, I have a good radar for that, which we will talk about. And so here is my thought. How many people have and most people don't even think about this? How many people have elevating experiences in their lives?
Pope condemns 'spiral of death' in Mideast
"Pope Francis said on Sunday that he condemns the spiral of death in the Middle East. Pope Francis appealed to Israelis and Palestinians, as well as the international community to find immediately without delay other paths that include dialog and the sincere search for peace. Speaking in Saint Peter's square, he said he learned with great sorrow of the deaths of ten Palestinians, including a woman in an anti terrorism operation by the Israeli army, and of the deaths of 7 Israeli Jews and the wounding of three others outside a synagogue near Jerusalem on Friday evening. He noted that from the start of the year, dozens of Palestinians had been killed in gun clashes with the Israeli army. Before waving to the thousands of faithful in Saint Peter's square, the Pope spoke about his upcoming apostolic trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan and the situation in both African countries.

Palestinian Terrorist Shoots 7 Dead at Jerusalem Synagogue
"Then we have in the State of Israel We have a Palestinian terrorist who slaughtered 7 Israelis who were leaving synagogue On Shabbat because Israelis go to synagogue as many Jews do on Friday evening Friday through Saturday Ten injured 7 murdered and they keep bringing this up in the context of the Israelis attacking a terrorist cell in Gaza Killing ten Palestinians who are terraced And the news just keeps linking the two because the Palestinians keep linking the two Did the Israelis go into Gaza Wait for people to come out of a mosque and mow them down No They went after terror So And so when the Biden administration and others say we want to deescalate both sides what are you talking about Israel's not allowed to hit a terrorist cell But the Palestinians are free to slaughter innocent civilians
Auschwitz anniversary is marked as Europe's peace is again shattered by war
"An Auschwitz anniversary is marked as peace in Europe again in shuttered by war. Survivors of Auschwitz birkenau are gathering to commemorate the 78th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German death camp amid horror that yet another war has shuttered peace in Europe. The site in southern Poland, which, during World War II, was under the occupation of German forces, became a place of systematic murder of Jews, poles, Roma and others, in all some 1.1 million people were killed there. Most of them choose, before it was liberated by Soviet troops on January 27th, 1945, among those expected
What Is a "Christian Nationalist?"
"They should fire the writers of this article if they have any honor at brookings. But hey, who fires anybody unless the person comes out with a conservative sentiment. Anybody at Southwest Airlines fired? I had heard it I haven't heard about it. How, so now we've moved to bias, they didn't cover any data on violence against Asians. No data. A recent study finds that, in fact, Christian nationalism is the strongest predictor of xenophobic views of COVID-19, what does that have to do with anything? If you understand the disregard for honesty in this article, Christian nationalism is the greatest predictor of xenophobic views of COVID-19. First of all, they made up Christian nationalism. This is invented at The New York Times. I know more Christians than almost any Christian does. I'm a Jew, and I am deeply involved in Christian life. As I am in Jewish life. I never heard of Christian nationalism until The New York Times wrote about it. What does it even mean? Somebody who says this is a Christian nation is a Christian nationalist. You may agree or disagree, but I don't even know what that means. Does it mean they want to throw non Christians out of the country, does it mean that they want to impose Protestant theology on people? If you don't believe in Jesus Christ, you can't have a job in the government. What does it mean? The greatest advocates of separation of church and state have been protestants, just for the record.
Who Attacks Who the Most?
"So I've heard virtually completed the article from page 20 completed actually. Not a word about who actually does most of the attacking of Asian Americans. So an Asian slaughtered 11 Asians, Chinese, I believe, lunar new year celebration. And it's the whole article is about hate against Asians in America. The whole implication is its white hatred, word white doesn't appear. They don't tell you who actually commits the disproportionate number of the crimes, which is blacks. Same with the attacks on Jews. It's disproportionately done by blacks. If you will see the videos in Brooklyn, New York, where many hasidic Jews live, you will see every video I have seen of a Hussey, it's an ultra orthodox Jew, or from the black hats sometimes with a cold air locks in English, is that sidewalks. No, no. Side locks will pay out in Hebrew. Anyway, it's every video I've seen. It is a black attacking of the Jew, but that's not discussed either because they lie. They have an agenda and their line on its behalf. So listen to these quotes so anyway, the article lies by omission. Even if we can not be sure and attack was racial in intent, this is from the president of queens college city university of New York.
Being on Time = White Supremacy?
"Charlie, I saw a viral video of a black woman saying that being on time is a white supremacist idea. Can you help me understand this? It's so confusing. Love the show. Well, thank you and thank you for subscribing. Okay, so this is something that I first was made aware of back during Floyd of palooza, the summer of 2020 when we decided to burn our entire civilization based on a total lie. And at the time, it was this pamphlet by the Smithsonian, the Smithsonian black history museum that came out with this document. It was first I was ever made aware of it. Talking about all these different patterns of behavior that we would consider to be admirable or virtuous as being characteristics of white supremacy or of white culture. Now, this comes from academia. And yeah, that's the pamphlet right there. This idea comes from academia. And it is based on this argument that is now being repeated on shows like the view and all throughout colleges across the country who send your kid to college. They're going to be exposed to this and hopefully they won't actually end up believing it. That the white west, the white supremacist west as they put kind of describe it, captured and kidnapped blacks and made them believe in all these terrible ideas, such as, as the Smithsonian museum would say, having a strong family structure, that's white supremacy. Working hard, that's white supremacy. If you think I'm kidding, this is the Smithsonian museum for black history. This is funded by your taxpayer dollars. Believing in justice is white supremacy, whiteness. Let me be actually clear. It's whiteness and white culture in the United States. It's not, they don't say white supremacy, but that's heavily implied. I mean, come on. The nuclear family, taking holidays off, planning for the future is whiteness, delayed gratification is whiteness tomorrow will be better is whiteness, believing in that. Following rigid time schedules is whiteness, time viewed as a commodity is whiteness, and this document discontinues. No deviation from the single God concept monotheism is whiteness. Love you to say that tell that to the Ethiopian Jews.
How Jesus Models Evangelism With the Samaritan Woman
"Here Jesus is speaking of spiritual water, the lady is still thinking in physical terms. And that's why she introduces this question of her ancestors. Now this is the second question that she's asked Jesus. The first question had to do with the Jews in the samaritans, and he said it aside. Here comes the second question. Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well? And he says that a site. Why? Because it's not the focus. It's not the issue. The issue is not about the difference between the Jews and the samaritans. The issue is not about the history of this region and particularly the issues of who Jacob was or what he did. And Jesus understands that. And may I say to you in passing, that if you were ever going to be effective in speaking to people about Jesus, it is imperative that we understand what the focus is. For there will be all kinds of questions that are interesting. All kinds of matters that may be discussed, they're not all irrelevant. They're not all insignificant, but if we're going to be straightforward about things, there is a time for everything. There is a purpose to everything under heaven. And we need to learn when, what is being expressed as something that we should follow up on, and when we should set it aside and proceed with the main issue, and so in versus 13 and 14, Jesus sets the issue further forward. He has begun naturally, he has aroused her curiosity, and now your invest 13, he addresses her longing for reality. He addresses her deep desire for satisfaction. Everyone says Jesus who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst, indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. And how this must have registered in the mind of this lady because it's clearly spoke of something more significant than simply the fact that there was a possibility of getting a drink of water and you wouldn't be thirsty again. The lady was bright enough to understand that it was something more than this. Indeed, she may well have known the scriptures well enough to recognize that they were full of this kind of water terminology. It appealed to the longing of their lives.
Caller: Tony Dungy Critics Aren't Speaking Out Against Muslims
"I think the thing that I can not stomach from these people who are calling out people like Tony dungy for his beliefs aren't seeing a darn word about the radical Muslim faith followers who truly do hate homosexuals and don't accept anything other than marriage being a man and multiple women. Well, look, that's a fair point. No one touches the Muslims at all. You can't talk about them, can't write about them, can't draw about them. Can't do anything. And the reason why, well, we all know the reason why. Yeah, the hypocrisy just oh yes. But people are people are just terror, they're literally terrified. But again, they know they know they can go after the Christians and the Jews because we will just will stand down. That's just the way it works. I mean, they're not stupid. They know they can target the Christians of the Jews. Unfortunately, true. All right, Steve
Some Want to Be Stars, Others Want to Be All-Stars
"I have been here and I am very, very lucky to have been here for this. This is part two. The daily wire has convened Jordan Peterson. And now I believe 7 of us. So about 8 in total. From ferry's parts of the western world to gather together to study the book of exodus. From different perspectives. Jews, Christians, Orthodox Christians. Jordan Peterson, a master of the world of psychology, it's a high to be with these people for me. As I have said to you, in speaking of my own nature, one of the many divisions you could make among the human species is that there are those who want to be stars and there are those who want to be on an all star team. I have always preferred to be on an all star team. And that is what I feel that I am a part of. In this seminar, which millions will see.
US, Ukraine top military chiefs meet in person for 1st time
"America's top military officer has met his Ukrainian counterpart in person for the first time. Joint chiefs chairman Mark milley talks regularly with general Valerie Jews, but until now it was never face to face. Today, Millie went to a Polish military base near the Ukrainian border for their first meeting. It underscores growing ties between the two militaries at a critical time in Russia's war against Ukraine, which is nearing the one year mark. Millie spokesman says the general will now be able to relay Ukraine's concerns and information to NATO and other defense chiefs who will meet this week in Brussels. Sagar Meghani, Washington.
What Really Happened in Genesis?
"Somebody said Charlie, I really enjoyed your conversation on genesis. Can you do more of it? How do you believe genesis applies to our times today? And so I just want to preface this by saying I'm by no means a biblical scholar. I do not speak biblical Hebrew, but I do study the word and I love it and I'm actually spending a lot of time going deep into the Torah, which means teacher through mixture of commentaries, rabbi teachings, Dennis prager's rational Bible is terrific. And then applying it to today, because what is the Torah or what is the Bible have to teach us today and the answer is quite a lot. So to answer the question is one take on the kind of beginning of the Torah of genesis, which is genesis one through 11. So genesis one through 11 is very unique. It's a genesis one through 11. You could argue is the ultimate issues. Portion of genesis. Not to say that ultimate issues are not part of genesis 12 through. I think genesis goes to 50, right? Genesis 50 chapters on a second. Genesis 12 through 50. But it gets very historical, very literal starting in genesis 12, and it's just abruptly says God spoke to Abram, do this, do that. Leave your father's home, take saraya's your wife, you know, one thing after the other after gets very literal and the genealogy begins. But genesis one through 11, at times can seem somewhat abstract in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. That's very literal, but then it gets to the Garden of Eden and Cain and Abel, and the sons of Noah and then no way a covenant. And then out of nowhere, if you read the Bible and I encourage you guys to read the Bible in one year, you could do that with my wife's ministry, Bible in three 6 5 dot com that is Bible in three 6 5 dot com. You read genesis 9, all kind of flows, God's coming with Noah, and you read genesis ten, which is the table of nations, which is kind of this lineage. And then you read genesis 11, it kind of comes out of nowhere. So in genesis 11, it says now the whole world had one language and a common speech as people moved eastward, they found a place in China and settled there. Now this is not about the Jews. Or the people of the sons of no, the Jews don't really exist as a people yet. They have not been given that covenant Abraham or Abram has not yet existed. So it's kind of this one off story. And it's a very interesting story. It's the story of the people of Babel.
"jews" Discussed on Thank God I'm Atheist
"Dan. Is that a bad way to start a segment? Do we have to talk about this now? No, I kind of like this one, actually. I kind of like where we're going on the trip that we're headed on with this. Yeah, well, you sent me a story this afternoon. About a Catholic priest who has had a resign because he was saying one word wrong when he was performing baptisms. And now the Catholic Church has determined that all of those baptisms that he performed are null and void, those people are not baptized. God could not overlook the error of one priest. Yeah. And has rejected those souls. I hope nobody died. I hope nobody died until everybody's been able to be baptized correctly. Because if you're Catholic, you don't get a second run out of the way the Mormons do. No. If you're Catholic and you die having not been baptized, you weren't Catholic. You're going to hell. As a matter of fact, so this actually came from an article in the national Catholic reporter, I guess. And what happened was father Andres was saying, basically, he kept saying, we baptize you in the name of the father and the son and the Holy Spirit. And the thing that he's supposed to say is I baptize you in the name of the blah blah blah. Oh, it's not the royal we. It's not the royal week. And it's like, and what's really weird to me, I don't know. This is just a weird side note, but the objection that the Catholic Church raised to this, they said that the issue with using we is that it is not the community that baptizes a person rather it is Christ and him alone. Well, that guy ain't Christ? Yeah. That guy's father Andres. What are you talking about? It's just really weird. Anyway, so it can't it be father Andreas and Jesus? Right. So we, he's probably right. And if father Andres can do it, why can't the rest of the people there in the name of Jesus they pray in the name of Jesus? Why can't everybody be part of a baptism in the name of Jesus? Anyway, it's not really our role to call them out on their stupid rules. No, no, no, no, no, not at all. Not at all. What's amazing about that? And, you know, him and meta had a really wonderful thing where he pointed to an article where a guy who was a priest named Matthew hood father Matthew hood actually went and looked at a camcorder recording of his own baptism. When he was a baby? Yeah. And caught that they had said that that priest had said we instead of I as well. Oh shit. He's a priest, he's not even a Catholic. Anyway. Wow. The funny thing about this is that I mean, none of these people are thinking this all the way through. Of course, there's this tendency toward stickler ism. When it comes to sacraments, when it comes to holy ceremonies and whatnot, you and I having been raised in mormonism, participated in the blessing of the sacrament, which is a weekly thing that some pimply teenager does. And you pray over it. You bless it. And it's very, it's one of the very few set prayers in mormonism. There are there's one for the water and a different prayer for the bread. Yeah. And that's right. I said water and get no wine and Mormon church, buddy. Anyway, if you make a mistake and do this prayer incorrectly as a pimply teen, the bishop will walk all the way over from his high point at the dais and do it again. We would look over for approval. Right, did we do it right? And then there would be like a thumbs up and then we could proceed. That's how we handled it. Oh, really? Yeah. Regardless, if you fuck it up, you get to try take another run at it because it's absolutely vital that you say all the right words and all the right order. It doesn't work if the incantation isn't said correctly. Your little magic spell over the bread. Right. Is not going to turn it into special bread. Wonder, Brad? Yeah. Oh yeah, just the cheapest damn bread you can imagine. Anyway, and also and the other thing is, you know, there's baptism. That's one of the other very few set prayers in mormonism. And you pointed out, Mormons do baptisms for the dead, which is like this rapid fire baptist where they're like, I baptize you foreign in the name of blah blah blah. And the name of the father son, the holy ghost splash. I baptize you pour in the name of bread and they brought the kind of soul that goes splash. There's plenty of times I'm sure when they mess that up. Well, but the thing is there's also it's not even just like what you say. It is so critical because it's baptism by immersion. It you have to be fully immersed. Completely. Not a hair above water. Like, it doesn't matter that your foot went down while your head was up and then your head goes down, your foot pops up. Your whole body got wet, but that's not good enough. Right. Your head has to be down while your foot's down while all your hair, every single hair has to be submerged, so the ladies have to tie their hair back and shit. So it doesn't float and whatnot. Because men do not have long hair in organism. No, no, no. That would be something that would be bad. But nonetheless, yeah, so because once again, God can't look.

"Every year from September to December, I was deep in the Christmas world. But here's the other thing. My mom was really invested in my belief in Santa. Like a lot of parents, she'd write two Quinn from Santa, on the presents. But she would write that with her left hand, so I wouldn't recognize her handwriting. One year, she even somehow managed to fabricate reindeer tracks outside in the snow. When I was in the fourth grade, I started to doubt if Santa was real or not. I almost stopped believing. But then, my mom did this one crazy thing. She actually got someone to play Santa and to call me on the phone and taught me back into believing. I asked my podcast bosses, Stephanie and Josh to help me recreate the call. Have a listen. Hello? Is this Quinn Murray Waller? I have a collect call for you from the North Pole. Do you accept? Yes. Okay, I'm patching you through right now. Hello, Quinn. This is served off. Hi, Santa. Well, it looks like you've been a very good girl this year. Well, I've tried to be. I saw that you played amazing grace at your recital. That's one of my favorite songs. And I know that you must have practiced very hard to play that well. Yes, I did. Well, it seems to me that a little girl that practices not more deserves a really good Christmas present. I wanna puppy. Well, that's between you and your parents..

"It's the most wonderful time of the year it's not a Christmas episode without our favorite Jewish Christmas expert Mark Tracy. Mark used to work with us here at tablet and back in 2012. He asked David layman, author of a fine romance, Jewish songwriters, American songs, for his top ten list of the best Christmas songs written by Jews. Because as most of us I think probably know by now, Jews wrote some of the classic Christmas songs. In fact, it seems like we wrote most or all of the classic Christmas songs. So the gentiles we say, you're welcome. And we asked Mark back to share that list with us, but also to bring us up to date to give us a little more knock as a little more Jewish pride because we keep on writing the great holiday songs. There'll be parties for hosting marshmallows for toasting and caring out in the snow there'll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of christmases long long ago. Most of the Christmas songs that we know and love and listen to you this time of year. We're actually written by Jews. In the decades before and during mid century America, when the kind of culture that the boomers then grew up with, and then, of course, imposed on the rest of us, was really being formed. Most of the kind of songs that became standards were written by Jews for various social and historical reasons, Jews were the ones who were working out of the brill building, not to mention, working at the record companies and so many other parts of the industry. It just, you know, a lot of that probably had to do, frankly, with New York City in Los Angeles, and especially in New York City. So all these songs were written at this point, decades and decades and decades ago. At a time when Jews positioned in America and in American society and in kind of in their trajectory of assimilation, was different than it is now. And the way I tend to think of it is that for a long time, Jews tried to assimilate into American culture. So you have Irving Berlin, writing the songs that are quintessentially American. At some point, I think the Jewish emphasis ceased to be assimilating into American culture and started to be assimilating Americans into Jewish culture. It's kind of hard to imagine Jews these days and Jewish songwriters these days kind of unironically and earnestly penning these kinds of songs, more likely you have the great Jewish Christmas song of my youth, which is, of course, not a Christmas song, but is rather Adam Sandler's the hanuka song.

"Being a black American Jew means that no matter what I'm doing, the first thing people see is that I'm black. I am from an interfaith Muslim Jewish family, growing up in a post 9 11 post second intifada, America, I grew up a racialized Jew. For me, being a first generation immigrant to by choice means that I most often find myself on the outside looking in of multiple spaces and places. Koreans see me as being more American than Korean Jews see me more as being non Jewish as a convert than really and truly Jewish. For me being mixed ethnic, queer, Jewish person is both about being part of something vast and communal and also something that's isolating because it's the pie is getting cut into very small slices and it's hard to find others like yourself. That was Cassandra housley, maruchi zalal, tsuji men Miranda, and gage gorsky, who all identify as Jews of color. The Jews of color initiative, a nonprofit based in San Francisco, estimates that between 12 to 15% of American Jews are Jews of color. The Pew Research institute has a similar if slightly lower estimate. The Jews of color initiative recently released a survey of over a thousand self identified Jews of color from all over the United States. The survey respondents were a diverse group of Jews who also identify as African American, Hispanic or LatinX, Native American or indigenous, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, mizrahi, and beta Israel or Ethiopian Jewish, and multiracial. Ilana Kaufman is the executive director of the Jews of color initiative. I spoke with her about the survey's findings, and the Jewish communities growing awareness of its own diversity. As this conversation has continued to gain momentum. There's been some very sincere wondering about our experiences as Jewish people of color. Our perspectives, what happens to us when we're communal spaces? Do we really have experiences or racism or not? How and in what ways do we engage Jewish life and why? The survey respondents report engaging in Jewish life in many of the traditional ways. Going to synagogue, celebrating Shabbat and holidays, passing on Jewish identity to the next generation. Three quarters of them said that engaging in tikun olam or social justice was an important expression of their Jewish identity. And an overwhelming majority report facing racism and discrimination in majority white Jewish communal settings. In this episode, ilana and I talk about the survey and its implications. You'll also hear from Cassandra morocha gage and suji about their personal experiences. So elana, this is an engaged group of Jews. That's right. And yet the survey shows that the vast majority, 80% report they faced discrimination, especially in Jewish congregational settings. I mean, I don't imagine that came as a surprise to you or did it. I mean, what was your reaction to that finding? This number is jaw dropping. And while it's not surprising, because each one of us who's a Jewish person of color who engages in community life, experiences racism on a daily basis. What does it mean that a group of a collective group of people who again have different experiences based on our own racial ethnic backgrounds, but a collective experience of racism in this context, what does it mean when a group is so highly engaged and enduring so much so much injustice and pain and what would it be like if we could just dive in and just engage in Jewish life without having to into a racism? My name is Cassandra housley. I'm originally from Terre Haute Indiana, but I've been in Bloomington now for quite a long time. I'm hyper aware that I'm the only black woman in this space. There's no way around that. And all of that subconscious like performance like I have to be awesome because if I do anything wrong, it's not just because I'm, you know, I had a bad day or because, you know, I tripped on my way here and it threw up my mojo, 'cause, well, she's black and she's this, and she's that. And she's the affirmative action hire that we didn't. Or whatever, you know? And I just not wanting to go down that road because once you go down that road, you don't have brain space left to think about what it is you're there to do. I'm suji men Miranda. I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am an immigrant first generation was born in Seoul Korea, converted to Judaism as an adult on my own, and I am currently the executive director of the aleph alliance for Jewish renewal. I was in a waiting room and happened to come across a woman from a synagogue that I was the executive director of for 6 years. I was very, very involved in this synagogue for 6 years. And she mistook me for another Korean woman who belongs to the synagogue. So they're really is, you know, this feeling that Asians, we all look alike. I mean, that's what resonated or made me real. My name is Miro Shah. I also go by Mira. I'm 22. And I grew up on the northeast coast.

"What languages did they speak, were they married, were they parents where the immigrants, I kind of almost feel like I'm resurrecting them when I visit them. But as I was reading people love dead Jews, I found myself thinking a lot about how we as Jews memorialize the past. And use it to inform our present. And of course, it's a theme of so many of our holidays. And it's a theme particularly of the new commemorations that arose in the 20th century like Yamaha and his role Memorial Day. Joel masie caron. So I wanted to ask you, how do you differentiate between respecting and honoring the memory of dead Jews? And the more insidious and problematic love of dead Jews. So I am absolutely not saying people should not be honoring the past. There's two things going on here. One is, you know, you mentioned, oh, I visit these Jewish cemeteries in one of my chapters in the book is about what I call Jewish heritage sites, which is about, you know, does tourist industry that has grown up around these places where you don't live anymore. And the reason there anymore is generally not for positive reasons, like these people mostly did not voluntarily leave. And as I put it in the book, like, Jewish heritage sites it's a brilliant marketing term because it sounds so much better than property seized from debtor expelled Jews. And what you just described about imagining these people's lives and not just imagining these people's lives. But doing research into finding out how these people lived, that is the difference. So I'll give you this example that, as I said, I published 5 novels. I've spoken many times about my books. I used to ask this question to audiences of readers where I would ask people how many people here can name for concentration camps. And then I would ask those same people, how many of these same people can name for yiddish writers? 80% of the people who are murdered in the Holocaust were yet a speakers. This is a famously literary culture. And I'm asking this question, why do we care so much about the details of how these people died? If we do not care at all about how these people lived. And so to me, that's sort of the more interesting question is the perversity of a lot of this kind of memorialization of dead Jews is that their identity as Jews is erased in the process. They become this symbol of humanity or something like that. And there is no interest in how these people lived. My podcast, I have the first episode of adventures with there's a part that's about the Holocaust museum in Washington. And there's just a part that's about the children's exhibit there. And it's called Daniel's story..

Dara horn is angry, and the award winning author of 5 novels wants you to know why. This week, she's sitting down with my guest co host, Laura Shaw Frank, AJC's director of contemporary Jewish life to discuss why people love dead Jews. People love dead Jews also happens to be the title of dera's first work of non fiction. Laura has been eager to ask Dara what that means for those of us Jews who are still living. Laura, the Micah shores. Derek horn, welcome to people of the pod. Thanks so much for having me. So from the moment I heard the title of your new book, people love dead Jews.

"Address anti-semitism and feel empowered in their jewish identity from before they go off to college and through their college years and beyond and now dr gorgeous in this segment of our history of israel. We wanna take a little bit of a step aside and not talk about israel internally your talk about israel's foreign policy fuck about american susan how american jews felt about israel. We tend to have the following assumptions. America has always been israel's most important ally and we also have this assumption. Oh americans zoos loved. Israel really loved it from the very beginning until the palestinian conflict happened. And then once there was an occupation then understandably americans has got very conflicted about israel and that leads us to where we are now and where. We're going to see very quickly. Is that neither of those assumptions are true. And let's start with the latter one. This idea that american jews were from the very outset really in love with this idea of jewish state. They weren't and they were in fact very conflicted about the idea of jewish state. And here's why here's what president. Woodrow wilson says in one thousand nine hundred fifteen two years before the belford declaration he says to a group of newly naturalized americans. You cannot dedicate yourself to america unless you become an every respect and in every purpose of your will thorough americans you cannot become thorough americans if you think of yourself in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man. 'cause it's nine hundred fifteen. That's how he spoke back them. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in america has not yet become an american and the man who goes among the trade upon your nationality is nowhere. The son to live under the stars and stripes. wilson says. we're all in favor of immigration. We want you in. You can be italian. Americans austrian american spanish americans polish americans russian americans. But not your americans and the minute. Your identity is hyphenated. You're not really american at all. That's one thousand nine hundred fifteen but in nineteen thousand nine hundred seventeen british issue the balfour declaration his majesty's government view with favour the establishment in palestine of a national home for the jewish people and european sinus. Look at american jews and say okay. Come on join us looking at all the progress. We've made american just very uncomfortable. How you make your weight in america and we know of the jews were hardly equal in america in nineteen fifteen or nineteen seventeen. They had a long way to go. How do you make your way in america and at the same time. Say i'm a scientist. I also want to build an american homeland somewhere else. It's a very uncomfortable position for american jews..

Sworn in by common harris and he took his oath on a copy of the hebrew. Bible the tanakh as we would call it a copy that was particularly steeped in history because it once belonged to rabbi jacob rothschild who like hessel was an ally of martin luther king and was leader of the hebrew benevolent congregation temple in atlanta. Which is the city's oldest synagogue and was Itself bombed by white supremacists and nine hundred fifty so huge symbolism that. This is jonah thirty three years old you know.

"He's trying to top down. This is very clear that that is his message. He's not going to. He doesn't want to run with a dozen under him in a coalition. He wants to replace it. I think it's a fascinating development partly for said about what it will do inside israel but also in itself but one thing it suggests once again. Is this kind of guinea pig nation. It's the first time as far as i know that. The lincoln project have taken their show on the road outside the united states. I the testing the export ability of their proposition. Which was it seemed unique to the challenge against trump but actually exists in many many places. Which is the idea of still appealing to the traditional rights. But saying this one manifestation of it is somehow an aberration. That trump was. Not a real republican. He was an aberration. And my guess is their message for on. Sarah's going to be you can still be truly could make a true. You know israeli nationalist but bb's the aberration the party because of his departure from the the norms of the law. And i'm fascinated to know if it works with get on saw almost. It's more important than if it worked against trump because trump. You could say well. That was such a wild extreme case. But if you don't sign it works and we know there's a a mixed history of american consultants coming in and trying they message and here to actually but if it works will then become the means. Will that consultancy or the lincoln project template become the model adopted by all kinds of places where there is a fight against populism. So you know will. Will there be the opposition in hungary and poland hiring steve schmidt in the lincoln guys to take on off ban all the government in and i'm thinking about britain. You know this is a bit too late. If only we. There had been a lincoln project pre twenty-sixth before the brexit referendum that could have channeled that concert energy among conservatives who were not pro. Brexit were pro european conserved. They never got their act together. Really those pro european conservatives remain conservatives. They needed a vehicle. A message like the lincoln. Maybe this is going to become a big international business.

"Biontech vaccine is not giving the protection that they were hoping it would and the reason why that i does has huge salience here in the uk is that britain has made a decision to leave a long gap between the first and second days much longer than the advice of the drug manufacturers themselves. Who say i think it should be. We tell me two or three weeks. I think is what israel is doing in two three okay three week. Three week gap in the u. k. The decision has been to actually give as many people as possible at first and then wait twelve weeks before giving the second the idea being at least get a thin and wide cover raw the narrow and deep but that was predicated on the idea that i owe suffice. It would give you quite a lot of protection. The evidence from israel. And this is why the the the chief scientific adviser saying i'm really looking at it very closely is. Maybe that isn't good enough because we've all been seeing it. Even you know the former chief. Rabbi i think by lao contrite and corona virus even case even after two doses people are really watching thinking. Maybe one dose is not enough. Yeah i know Since israel is becoming like this pilot right the model nation that might actually be vaccinated Before the first country to be almost totally vaccinated there there are questions And as you say israel decided to have that three week gap And the. I think the astonishing thing for many israelis is the fact that they you know there were so proud of the vaccination operations almost a month since the first of vaccination and the numbers are dropping right. That it's a much longer process than what we thought From from the it's gonna take you. I mean it is an amazing idea of israel not to start up nation but kind of guinea pig nation and people watching it around the world be arrived there. Was this hope that you could begin to ease lockdown because the vaccination vaccine would kick in and an early and having a quick impact and yeah the the israel thing is a worrying precedent. We have to mention one more political story. Yes from this country. Which is the fact. That don't star started working with the lincoln project right the republican strategists who got under trump's skin Because precisely because they were republican strategists. started working with him with the first Video up And i think it begs the question of how much this will affect The you know the election in this country I think it's it's also interesting to note that a lot of people from outside israel think that gets on solid the moderate his opinions because of the fact that he's anti bbb because if he talks about the rule of law cetera.

The administration used the leverage got from the trump administration. As i said it's a delicate dance on a good day when you add the baggage left by netanyahu and the democrats after what you know the whole story with two thousand fifteen going to the congress over the head of the president. It's going to be very very very Delicate maybe even tumultuous yeah. I think the the sugar rush so good. I think that's completely right at the usual restraints republican democrat but we're all Israeli prime ministers would take off in those for years and it was very unreal.

Joe biden is now younger. Jews getting more and more progressive and they may be more comfortable with and he sambas will the squad or whatever. But i think you'll sort of made the mainstream center of gravity of american. Jerry just feels comfortable with a with somebody. Like joe biden. Who is you know just sort of relaxed around jews. I think that's something. I remember when when his daughter married a jewish doctor. Which is the supreme type of jew and he said you know. I'm the only irish catholic. You know as history met because his daughter married a jewish surgeon. Right i mean it's that he has sympathy and empathy for minorities in general and and and of course for for the jewish minority. That's that's pretty clear. But i think director you off. There were union still making a point. I was enjoying the jewish surgeon. Reference sex joke but also. Because it's no joke. I mean all three of his children married jewish spouses and the baby grandson The he held in his arms in one of the photographs. That went round is how logically jewish cetera. I'm wary of going down this road. I'm i'm monitoring myself as i say because of course people defended trump on this count by saying look. His son-in-law jared kushner is jewish. Ivanka converted to judaism. He has jewish grandchildren. therefore he's obviously a wonderful friend of the jews. Even though i thought so many of the points that trump would make resorted to i thought old fashioned anti-jewish tropes about money lending and chiseling to get a good deal and so on so i'm going down the children grandchildren line but nevertheless the fact that you know biden says jokes that he's been going to a seder almost as long as he's been going to catholic mass because of what happened with these blended family. You know i think any way. There is just kind of degree of comfort in joe biden with american jews. He he's relaxed around them. I think it's no coincidence that he's appointed lots. I think he's just in that area. Where the different opens up is absolutely on israel. And they're you know it's an interesting question you know. would they prefer someone like trump. he may be less good on jewish stuff. Because he's down. The line wins the netanyahu position. I think that is exactly the question. And when you first of all we have to say that joe biden is as he called himself often. I'm zionist at heart right. There's no question the whole story always tells about golden year. You know how he was worried on the eve of the war as a young senator in the she said. Don't worry because we have a secret ingredient in our war against the arabs says one she says we have nowhere else to go and he tells the story for forty years ride. And there's this famous thing he says to be be no his quotes. I don't agree with the damn thing you say. But i love you. It's clear right that he has a very warm feelings butts In the is first of all we have to realize that israel. Israel's general getting off a sugar rush. Right i mean for four years..
"jews" Discussed on Unholy
"That it still hasn't happened. It's gonna take a while of carelessly. Had that moment so anyway we must say that there are many jews appointed to joe biden's cabinet so yeah like i say i had makarius thrill away seeing Common harris up there. Because i was imagining what it would be like but in a way we don't need to imagine there's a jewish connection of dicamba harasses husband the so called second. Gentlemen doug emhoff is jewish. But he's more. I think more substantively more importantly is the number of jews. Joe biden's appointed to key positions. Now like i say with this sort of florida. Jewish couple in my mind a little bit. I am wary of this game. I'm aware that they can be a little say. How many jews and you know people did this. Even with donald trump who had steven mnuchin treasury and gary cohn as his chief economic adviser but nevertheless it is striking that there are a at least ten. Prominent jews nominated to key positions. The forward of jewish paper was joking. There would be enough numbers to have a minion in the west wing. That been getting around awhile but you can go through. The may is they're insignificant places. He's chief of staff on clain. Twenty lincoln secretary of state. Who's made a huge thing. In his in his testimony when he appeared before the senate foreign relations committee for his nomination to be ratified he's straightaway talked about his stepfather.
