I'm agnostic, but I still pray, and this hit me hard and relatably. We don't have a prophet now, to lead us to answers. We are afraid, and cannot truly escape the consequences of our actions.
Let the cold of this month not hurt us, and let us look forward to the days lengthening again, as the trees prepare to grow and bloom. Let travel be easy and let each of us be brought to our own correct path.
A comedian wants shows the Orthodox community can attend. The Ortho community wants her to come. But their leadership, bowing to pressure from conservative community members, decide that hosting LGBT performers can endanger kosher certification.

This is still going on, folks! Up next we have Messiah In America by Moyshe Nadir, trans. Michael Shapiro. This is an absolutely hilarious translation of a bitingly satirical yiddish play from the 30s about rival show business producers hiring dueling messiahs and duking it out for the Jews of New York. Read an excerpt in In Geveb, then bought the book from the small press responsible. It arrived a little water damaged, but I'm still quite happy with it.

I consider myself a nonzionist Jew. I don't support israel or believe it has a right to exist any more than other colonialist horrorshow countries, like the one I live in.
"From the river to the sea" makes me, personally, uncomfortable but it is not the type of thing that should get someone fired.
I am not taking criticism on this. It is a feeling, i know it is Incorrect and makes me a bad leftist but it exists, sorry.

masto.jews.international is a Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together. This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
