Ultra-Orthodox Jews Harass Israeli Believers
CBN ^

Posted on 03/12/2011 11:25:57 AM PST by Amerisrael

ARAD, Israel - For the past seven years, the small Messianic Jewish community in the southern Israeli town of Arad has been harassed and persecuted by ultra-Orthodox Jews who accuse them of missionary activity.

The small desert town, with a population of 25,000 mostly secular residents, is home to a growing number of Israeli believers.

Yakim Figueras, pastor of one of the four congregations there, told CBN News that for years, religious Jews have subjected the believing community to sometimes daily cursing and harassment outside their homes.

"They come with either half-truths against us or complete lies…and they entice their own people and try to bring others against us," Figueras said.

On Wednesday, a demonstration organized by Yad L'achim, the aggressive anti-missionary organization, brought about 200 protesters to the home of Polly Sigulim. Their message was clear.

PapaBear3625 said: “So you’re saying that Hasidic Jews who decided that Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson was the Messiah, by that decision lost their status as Jews?”

They never said he was the Messiah.

The Talmud suggests that in every generation, there are potential righteous people who might have the ability to become prophets, or maybe the messiah. Lubavitchers do not believe that the Messiah arrived yet. A small group of followers of the late Grand Rebbe Schneerson thought he may have been on of these people. They have since backtracked. Watch a Chabad telethon and you’ll hear these same Jews speak of their hope the Messiah will arrive one day.

Judaism prohibits a belief in multiple gods, or Jesus as some savior figure.

“If you read of the Jews who were believers in Jesus Christ in Ancient Israel, I believe they were referred to followers of the way.....The Disciples of Jesus worshipped in the temple, by all accounts they remained Jews in all what they did...”

This is a good example of replacement theology.

Much as we chastise the Reverend Wright types for their Black LIberation Theology, this too runs into similar problems in that it slights actual history and a people known as Jews.

Why? Because you’re suggested Idolatry was accepted amongst Jews, and that the ancient Hebrews practiced Christianity. It’s a lie. No observant Jew would muddy this, as the prayers, and traditions are all clear. The Talmud is sparkling clear. A belief in Judaism negates Christian concepts.

TaraP: “What year in history did a :Law come about that said : If you are born a Jew, but adhere to the belief that the Hebrew Yeshua Ha-Mashiach is the Promised Messiah of Israel, you are no longer a Jew?”

That’s like asking where Jews rejected Muhammed. Jesus was merely a Rabbi in a marginalized reformist sect of Judaism. He wasn’t anyone that Talmudic scholars addressed. He’s not in the Torah.

To answer your question, laws of conversion require renouncing other gods, and false idols, and the tradition goes back to Abraham, and Sarah. The Talmud later addressed conversion in greater detail.

The issue isn’t conversion, it’s apostasy.

Also, what makes one an adherent of one religion, and not another? It’s not a title you can just throw around. As a religion goes, there are basic tenets that all denominations share as a belief system...and if you don’t share in those core beliefs, you are simply not of that religion. Judaism has many open ended areas open for differences and debate, but the issue of the Messiah is not one of them. Jesus is trivial for Jews, and always will be.

"A huge problem with some messianic groups is that the try to pass themselves off as Jews in order to lure in not very knowledgeable Jews to view them as authentic."

What are you talking about? A Messianic Christian Jew is every bit as much of a Jew as any Orthodox Rabbi. A perfected Jew. They are not trying to "pass themselves off" as anything other than what they are. Please show me this deception you speak of.

I am unaware of any Chritian missionary work in the entire world "meant to coerce people". Seems to me one has to be pretty insecure in their faith to feel need to prevent others from discussing theirs.

"Now what about someone born Jewish who does not believe in God? Are they also no longer considered Jews?"
If one is born to a Jewish mother and is unobservant, they are an unobservant Jew, but still a Jew. If one openly converts to another faith, they are no longer a Jew. As simple as that.

Jewish law is derived from the Torah and interpreted by the rabbis so that it can be put into practice. For instance, the rabbis instituted how we are supposed to fulfill “don’t seethe the kid in the milk of its mother”.

In my first post I told you when it became impossible to be both a Jew and a Christian. When Christianity was bringing in pagans who were not Jews, baptizing them and making them Christian. The religion broke from Jewish law and from being a religion on Jews. You don’t have to like it or agree with it. It is what Jewish law says on the subject. period.

An atheist Jew is simply a religiously lapsed Jew. I wish it weren’t so, because it seems wrong to me. It doesn’t matter if I like it or not or agree with it or not. That is Jewish law.

One’s essential Jewishness is retained forever.

A Jew who ‘converts’ to Christianity may forfeit some treatment as a Jew (such as being buried in a Jewish cemetery), but need not convert to Judaism should he return to Torah observance. If female, her children will be Jewish.

There’s a lot of confusion because Israel is a secular state but finds it politically advantageous to pay a certain amount of respect to traditional Jewish law. That does not mean the government of Israel obeys Jewish law. Quite the contrary.

There are people who use Jewish ritual and trappings to make Jews feel comfortable in a Christian setting in order to get them to convert. Christianity is a perfectly fine religion and is a perfect religion for many. It is not, however, Judaism perfected.

“A Messianic Christian Jew is every bit as much of a Jew as any Orthodox Rabbi. A perfected Jew.”

Jewish law doesn’t recognize a concept of a “perfected Jew” until the Messiah arrives.

An Orthodox Rabbi practices Judaism, and follows Jewish laws, of the Jewish Religion.

A Messiani Jew...does not. They are apostate or never were Jewish to begin with.

Ethnically, they are still Jews, but so what? So is George Soros.

No actual Jews do .... a real Jew does not use that term even abbreviated. There are specific words they use for speaking of God in Hebrew.

You’ll find the ones who use the abbreviated initials or speak of “Yahweh” are non-Torah pseudo Jews. So here you have it - even in this thread, you have Christians posing as Jews, misrepresenting themselves, and arguing over Torahnic laws. It’s absurd.

tkas: “When Christianity was bringing in pagans who were not Jews, baptizing them and making them Christian. The religion broke from Jewish law and from being a religion on Jews”

Judaism doesn’t address Christianity specifically.

The Torah simply states there is only one God, and not to worship false idols. So since Christianity falls outside of those guidelines, the practice was NEVER sanctioned within Judaism in any way, shape or form, and was akin to the Golden Calf, making it forbidden for Jews to partake.

You do bring up a good point.... As Messianic Judaism is not actual Judaism, and they make up their own rules, they will allow anyone accepting of Jesus to join. This is why speaking of Jews for Jesus as an ethnic group is no longer relevant. To convert to Judaism requires a Rabbinical oversight and adherence to the Torah which Messianic Jews don’t take part in.

That’s YOUR belief.

Unfortunately, you have to live in a world with people who don’t share your beliefs.

...remember, after Christianity came Islam, and that religion appropriated Abraham, Moses, AND Jesus... so there’s yet another group who believe they have in fact the perfected religion.

The perfect religion is the one that is perfect for you but don’t force it on your neighbor.

None of the Abrahamic faiths believe we are without sin or have achieved “perfection”.

Is not YHvH written on Torah scrolls ?

I am aware that there is a long standing Rabbinical tradition not to
pronounce the NAME but instead use HaShem or Adonai in it's stead .

Many believe that non-scriptual tradition is wrong
and we must praise His NAME: YHvH

Of course I do. I also share with people who deny other truths like gravity and a round earth. But these sadly mistaken people don't change the truth and the exclusivity of Jesus for salvation is the truth. Finally, give me an example of any Christian currently tryling to "force" Christianity.

Google Crypto-Jews and try and wrap your head around just one example of history.

Then put that in context of someone in Israel saying “convert or die”, or “you’re going to hell”, or “All Jews must embrace Jesus”. It’s no more charming when it comes from a Black Israelite, or Hamas, or a Messianic Jew.

You just gave a good example of you declaring that the tradition was wrong, and you knew better than what is accepted common practice amongst mainstream Jews. See the problem? The Torah, and Talmud give specific names of God which Jews are to use. Messianic “Jews” believe something entirely different.

“Where do they perform their animal sacrifices? “

Why are you under the impression Orthodox Rabbis are supposed to sacrifice animals? These rituals appear in the Torah as individually mandated tasks and later, occasionally for the High Priests.

Today, some Ultra Orthodox *do* actually partake in some animal rituals (like transferring sins to a chicken they raise over their head) but it’s symbolic the way lent is symbolic. Nobody would chastise Christians for not fasting in the desert for 40 days, would they? Talmudic sages came to conclusions as to refining the laws of observance. This is part of the oral tradition, and not the Torah itself. Mainstream modern Judaic practice doesn’t require one to live like an ancient Israelite.

There are still communities of Crypto Jews, and Jews of other forced conversions across the world coming to terms with their lineage and going through a rediscovery process today. Many continued to practice Judaism in hiding.

Ad Targeting Jews For Conversion ‘Offensive And Insulting
ADL response:
“The World Evangelical Alliance Statement defending the targeting of Jews for conversion is offensive and insulting to the Jewish people and brazenly dismisses Jewish self-definition. Instead of validating God’s irrevocable covenant with the Jewish people, and ongoing Jewish covenantal life, themes also found in their Scripture, this group of religious leaders does the opposite. It is especially odious to defend the duplicitous proselytizing of Jews by groups such as Jews for Jesus and so-called “Messianic Jews.” While they claim to deplore the use of deception and coercion, they “reject the notion that it is deceptive for followers of Jesus Christ who were born Jewish to continue to identify as Jews,” thus turning the meaning of deception on its head.”
http://adl.org/PresRele/ChJew_31/5263_31.htm

A correction from earlier - Israel only outlaws missionary work to minors, or when inducement is offered. They were forced to pull planned legislation in 1998 banning all missionary work.

animal sacrifices were moved to the temple and away from the “burbs” in ancient times. Also, rabbis didn’t do sacrifices anyway.

Anyone espouses “one true religion” isn’t too far removed from “force”.

I don’t think Hindu gods are real, but I would not post that to a Hindu on an internet forum. It is obnoxious and would make Jews look bad. It is so sad when someone thinks that the only path to God is the one they themselves happen to be on. I have respect for Christianity as a legitimate path to God for Christians. Too bad you can’t do the same for others.

And now that the temple is gone (God's will) there's no reason in scripture you can't take those sacrifices out to the burbs again. In fact it seems to be commanded. You've got detailed instructions how to build a tabernacle. I wonder why God took such pains to preserve such a detailed set of instructions?

Have you read them in Hebrew sweetheart? The only way you can truly understand the word of God is to read it in the original.

Trying to teach someone to understand the Bible and Judaism in one afternoon on an online forum is a tad to grand a proposition. It hasn’t stopped you from trying to pretend though.

Watching your train of thought is nearly at the level of a sporting event. I must say that I am relieved that the vast majority of Christians are not as intolerant and so sure of their own set of truths as you are. Osama bin Laden and his boys are very sure they have the corner on the truth too.
