  • Do an internet search for a victorian print called “Gossip” by G Witherspoon. Notice the resemblance to the pope?

    Now look up on eBay a closed auction # 390698023080 an auction for a Reddy Kilowatt card holder. Notice the resemblance?

    Also, take notice of the horns on the victorian print and the horns on Reddy Kilowatt.

  • WILL THIS POOPP RESPECT JUDAISM AND REMOVE HIS GIANT CROSS around his neck when he walks the KOTEL?

    will bibi respect our Torah and not enter into any facility that has crosses, idols,graven images and assorted machinations, maybe even their ancient torture machinery used on outr ancestors and thier current literature used to deceive and convert JEWS?

    MY RABBI ZT’L REFUSED THE INVITE TO GO TO VATICAN LONG AGO, BUT DID INVITE THE POOP TO ‘COME VISIT HIM IN NEW YORK.

    The only issue to be spoken “TO” this poop is to stop the missionary activity in ISRAEL AND all JEWISH AREAS throughout the world.

    also…where does the pope get his red kipa made.
    I like the red, also he wore a blue one once… maybe he went to a bar mitzvah….
    Amazing how the goyim copy sometimes the JEWS and unfortunatly the JEWS COPY THE goyeem.which is why HASHEM STATED TO SEPARATE FROM THE OTHER NATIONS SO WE DONT GET THEIR HABITS.

    HANUKA… GET READY. if you never did anything else as a JEW. DO THIS DEED. LIGHT A MENORAH. MAKE A MENORA…LAY OUT FOIL CAPS PUT A CANDLE IN IT AND LIGHT IT.
    HASHEM is very close to us at that time, extra close…honor HIM AND THE MIRACLE in the temple then and the miracle NOW in spite of JEWISH HATRED RISING AGAIN.
    HASHEM IS YOUR FRIEND..TALK TO ‘HIM’ anytime, anywhere..

My high school teacher, Rabbi Moshe Yagid, pulled us aside just before the chuppah and challenged us to choose one mitzvah that would be the foundation of our marriage and our lives. He explained [...]

    Young Syrian Jewish Restauranteur Continues a Family Legacy

    JNS.org – At the turn of the century, a young Jewish immigrant arrived in New York. So begins the history of many American Jewish families. It is 27-year-old Albert Allaham’s story, too, with a few unusual twists. Albert’s “century” is the 21st—he arrived almost 100 years after the massive waves of European Jewish immigration. Rather than coming from a small town along the Danube river, his shtetl was Damascus. His first American business was not a pushcart on the Lower East [...]

    JNS.org – Omelet sandwich: 5 shekels. Iced coffee: 5 shekels. Tuna sandwich: 5 shekels. Fresh-squeezed orange juice: 5 shekels. Cheese bureka: 5 shekels. There’s plenty more on the Cofizz menu, but you get the idea. Dani Mizrahi and Amir Amshalm, two Israeli men in their early 30s, asked themselves: Why not launch a take-out food joint in busy neighborhoods around Jerusalem where everything—and that means everything—goes for five shekels, or about $1.50. They’d seen the concept take off in Tel Aviv, where [...]
