Temple Institute Conduct Passover Offering Drill

In preparation for the upcoming festival of Passover, this past Wednesday (5 Nisan – 25 March) the ‘Priestly Training Academy’ established by the Temple Institute held a Passover offering practice drill that was documented by professional photographers. This was the most accurate and authentic reenactment of this service to have taken place in nearly 2,000 years.

The Temple Institute is currently producing an educational documentary film which will depict the various stages of the Passover offering. A DVD is also in the works for the benefit of yeshivot, seminaries and schools, and all who wish to study the details of this important subject.

The Kohanim who participated in this drill, all true descendants of Aaron, all wore authentic Priestly garments and recited the appropriate ‘blessings’ ( in practice mode) which applied to each stage of the commandment’s fulfillment. The event was accompanied by blasts from silver trumpets, and the song of the Levitical choir.

Other stages of the drill included: examination of the lamb for blemishes, the priests bringing the animal to the Temple courtyard, the shechita and receiving the blood which is brought to the corner of the altar, skinning and separation of the inner parts, and the roasting of the whole lamb as required by the Divine command, in a special Passover oven designed and built for this purpose.


Abbas Calls on Arab States to Attack Hamas

About Ishmael (Arabs, Islamics): "He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility towards all his brothers.’" - Genesis 16:11,12

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas used the platform of the Arab League summit in Sharm el-Shekh, Egypt, this Saturday to attack his "unity partner" Hamas, making a subtle call for the Arab states to take military action against the Gaza-based Muslim Brotherhood offshoot.

Speaking at the 26th summit in the southern Sinai peninsula, Abbas made reference to the campaign of airstrikes launched last Thursday by Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries against Iran-backed Shi'ite Houthi rebels in Yemen - the Houthis have overthrown the government while rapidly expanding their control.

"I hope that the Arab countries will take the same policy they employed in Yemen for all Arab countries suffering from internal conflict - like Palestine, Syria, Libya and Iraq," Abbas said according to Yedioth Aharonot, in an open jab at Hamas in Gaza.

Making Abbas's comments calling for military intervention in "Palestine" all the more pointed is the fact that just two days earlier, Abbas's adviser on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash, who also serves as PA Supreme Sharia (Islamic law) Judge, made similar remarks.

Al-Habbash urged the Arab countries to take action and strike Hamas with an "iron fist," in an open call for military intervention.

Hamas and the PA signed a unity deal last April, which has done little to damper the enmity raging between the rivals ever since Hamas violently seized control of Gaza in 2007 - the most obvious example of the how the deal has not changed tensions was when Hamas tried to stage a coup against the PA in Judea and Samaria last year.

Responding to Al-Habbash, Hamas said the comment is "a dangerous and not nationalist call."

VU-historicus Bart Wallet maakt Joodse Canon

Een nieuwe website geeft met honderd links, ‘vensters’ een prettig leesbaar en fijn geïllustreerd overzicht van de geschiedenis van de Joodse gemeenschap in Nederland. De Joodse Canon is samengesteld door historicus Bart Wallet in samenwerking met Tirtsah Levie Bernfeld.

Wallet is volgens The Times of Israel ‘one of the leading experts on the Dutch Jewish community’ en het Nieuw Israëlietisch Weekblad noemt hem een ‘wandelende encyclopedie van de Nederlands-joodse geschiedenis’.

In dagblad Trouw legt Wallet uit waarom slechts zes van de honderd vensters over de Tweede Wereldoorlog gaan: ‘Het beeld van de Joden als slachtoffers is wijdverbreid. Daar lopen we niet van weg, maar er is meer: we willen ook de enorme culturele rijkdom en creativiteit laten zien die Joden in al die eeuwen tentoon hebben gespreid.’

Volgens Wallet is ons beeld van de Joden ‘vrij karikaturaal: de Shoah en Israël, verder komen we niet. Wij willen laten zien dat het Joodse verhaal meer is dan die twee dingen’.

De Joodse Canon begint in 1295, met een verhaal over de Jodenstraat in Maastricht, één van de oudste Joodse wijken van Nederland, en eindigt in 2012, met de ‘musealisering’ van de oude Amsterdamse Jodenbuurt in het ‘Joods Cultureel Kwartier’.

Daartussen de bekende verhalen uit de Joods-Nederlandse geschiedenis, zoals de ban van Spinoza door de Amsterdams-Portugese gemeente, de aanstelling van de eerste Joodse minister, Michel Henri Godefroi, de verhalen van het kamp Westerbork en van Anne Frank, maar ook minder bekende verhalen, zoals de instelling van een numerus fixus voor Joden in Leiden, in 1735, en het besluit, in 1817, dat Joden Nederlands moesten leren om beter te integreren.

Joodse historie is meer dan Shoah en Israël

"Anti-Semitic" attack on London synagogue

Police arrested six men after a group of 20 or so tried to violently force their way into a London synagogue late Saturday night, according to multiple reports.

In a video posted to YouTube that appears to show the incident, members of the Ahavas Torah synagogue in Stamford Hill can be seen defending themselves with chairs and other objects amid loud cursing and an apparent assault by an unseen group just outside a pair of doors with broken windows.

Reuters reports only one worshipper sustained minor facial injuries defending the building.

It is unclear what kicked off the incident, but police expressed doubt it was a planned attack.

"The incident is being treated as an anti-Semitic incident, due to remarks made by one of the group," London's Metropolitan police said in a statement. "However, there is nothing to suggest it was a planned or targeted attack."

Rabbi Maurice Davis of the Ahavas Torah synagogue, backed up the police statement, telling the BBC: "I think this incident was more anti-social than anti-Semitic."

Netanyahu Named Prime Minister, Coalition Talks Begin

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday night received the final results of last week’s elections and promptly tasked Benjamin Netanyahu with forming the next government, effectively naming the latter Israel’s next prime minister.

Netanyahu on Thursday began the first official coalition negotiations, and troubles surfaced almost immediately.

Moshe Kahlon, whose Kulanu Party won 10 seats, suddenly canceled his scheduled meeting with Netanyahu after learning that the ultra-Orthodox parties would be offered key economic positions in the Knesset.

Kahlon ran on a platform of further reforming the Israeli economy, an in particular tackling skyrocketing housing prices. He argues that giving the ultra-Orthodox control over Israel’s purse strings would prevent any meaningful progress.

Naftali Bennett, whose Jewish Home brings 8 seats to the coalition, kept his meeting with Netanyahu, but was adamant he would head to the opposition if not given either the Foreign Affairs or Defense ministries.

Avigdor Lieberman, whose Israel Beiteinu won just 5 seats, has also demanded the Defense Ministry, and has likewise stated his willingness to sit in the opposition should that condition not be met.

Inside Netanyahu’s Likud, senior party members have attacked the smaller potential coalition partners for not being more modest in their demands. The higher ranked of Likud’s 30 Knesset members also insist on being rewarded with ministerial posts.

Yemen worshipers were cursing Jews when mosque blown up

A video recording of a deadly terrorist attack at a Shiite mosque in Yemen on Friday revealed that worshipers were chanting a slew of hateful slogans just as a suicide bomber detonated himself, killing scores of people.

The bombing, one of three committed in a pair of mosques, was carried out by the Islamic State during weekly prayers. At least 142 people were killed and 351 were wounded in the attacks, carried out in the Shiite rebel-controlled capital city of Sana’a.

The amateur video, hosted and translated by the Arabic media watchdog MEMRI, shows a preacher conducting a sermon at the Houthi al-Hashoosh Mosque, leading the crowd in an impassioned cry against Israel, the United States and Jews.

“Our belief in Allah will increase after today. We will triumph over their deceit and their arrogance. Allah is with us,” the preacher said.

“Death to America. Death to Israel. Curse upon the Jews. Victory to Islam. Allahu Akbar,” the worshipers recited en masse. Then a terrorist roaming among the mosque’s patrons detonated himself, causing a scene of mass panic.

Obama and the Two State 'Solution' (Disaster).

Obama is dead wrong over the Two State 'Solution' (Disaster).
It is The Road Map to Israel's Destruction! If the U.S. Administration will keep on pushing for Two States, and when it will force Israel to give away Land and Settlements (from the 'westbank', Israel's heartland: Judea and Samaria) to the 'palestinians', America will be literally Split in Two, for Dividing Gods Land.
