Posted on 09/06/2012 9:23:19 AM PDT by Nachum
Tonight, Rabbi David Wolpe gave the closing benediction. And he missed two key references: Jerusalem, and the State of Israel. He focused instead on the false leftist definition of tikkun olam, fixing the world. Tikkun olam is actually a kabbalistic concept that suggests that Jews have a responsibility to fulfill the commandments in order to rectify the cosmic cataclysm that occurred with creation. But leftists like to equate tikkun olam with the entire leftist program, no matter how many Jewish commandments that leftist program violates.
Heres Wolpe's transcript:
Dear God, we are grateful that our nation is founded on the highest principles of freedom and resourcefulness and creativity and ever-renewed strength. And we understand that those worthy ideals stand alongside the commitment to compassion, to goodness, our sacred covenant to care for those who are bereaved and bereft, who are frightened, who are hungry, who are bewildered and lost, who seek shelter from the cold.
As your prophet taught us: shiftu yatom, rivu almanah. Defend the orphan and fight on behalf of the widow. We know that our lamp is lifted not only to illuminate our way but to serve as a beacon to others that here, this land, is a place where the dreams of a weary world flourish and endure.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Heard on Laura’s show this AM that the rabbi IS Monica Lewinsky’s rabbi!
That’s Monica’s Rabbi. What did you expect? Theological acumen cannot possibly be his forte.
Heard on Lauras show this AM that the rabbi IS Monica Lewinskys rabbi!
Probably enjoys a good cigar now and then — we know Monica does!!! :-)
I’m at a loss for words again as to why this man would participate in this charade.
Thank you, Ben Shapiro! So few people understand the Hebrew concept of tikun olam that reform (deform) jews feel free to distort it to the masses as a leftist concept...which it absolutely is not.
ANYONE who seeks to learn about Judaism, do not, I repeat, do NOT try to learn from a reform jew because you will NEVER understand us that way at all. They pervert everything.
As your prophet taught us: shiftu yatom, rivu almanah. Defend the orphan and fight on behalf of the widow.
Democrats want to abort the orphan and stick the widow in front of a death panel because the government needs to cost costs.
It doesn't matter in God's eyes how 'good' or moral we are.
All of us have become like one who is unclean,
and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
we all shrivel up like a leaf,
and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
New International Version (NIV)
Rabbi David Wolpe seems to think that it is OK
to steal from others to do his mitzvah.
Yikes! I had forgotten that details. Ugh.
Oy vey !
If he is such a good and moral person, why is he participating in this? It has been my experience that honest people do not socialize with crooks, and vice versa.Birds of a feather flock together.
Also, see this and comments links:
If Cardinal Dolan says the same prayer he did last week, he will mention Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Good links. Making use of them.
on the damage control link:
It would seem this guy was connected to Crist as well.
Just remember the 2010 democrat senatorial race in FL. Seigel endorsed new FL resident and billionaire Greene over Kendrick Meek. Greene LOST and when Meek won the nomination the recommendation was to NOT vote for their own democrat candidate, Meek, but to vote for Independent candidate Charlie Crist!
Democrat leadership in PBC is interested in only 1 type of candidate. Someone that practices the same religion as they do. If you dont belong to their religion, your ability to run for democrat office is severely diminished.
Note: Dude, it must not be Judaism but demmi and dhimmi ism.
Speak of the devil, I saw this link on Crist’s arrival before his speech.
