It is said that "No Justice, No Peace" is a threat. That's true, and I definitely agree that it's a threat that should be followed up upon more often. However, on a more fundamental level "No Justice, No Peace" is a treatise on the nature of peace.

Arresting people for writing poetry about opposing the government is NOT acceptable, even if you think the poem is "inciting violence," and I've seen far more violent poems in my day. You want a violent poem I'll show you tons of them. Fuck, I'd be in jail by now at this point.

Someone a while back was looking for a Yiddish keyboard layout, I made one for xkb that's based on the one by Feygl Infeld Glaser, which in turn is based on the Royal/Underwood Yiddish typewriter layout.

This layout has all the YIVO standard combinations, but retains the US standard punctuation locations, in addition to some extra Yiddish punctuation.

There are some key combinations still open, and I'd love to hear ideas about what can go there.

Hi Friends! I really want to buy this rare 7-volume anthology of Yiddish folksongs, and I can't do it on a janitor's pay without some help. I promise to work to make it available to the community if I'm able to get it. Please help

I think that the most important thing about being a "True Yid" is the knowledge that none of this is new. Everything we're struggling with right now, all our battles, all that was present 100 years ago, for example. We are continuing our struggles with each other and with the world. To get that understanding it is necessary to acknowledge the diversity of our historical experience.

If you read Tevye, the rich Jews of Yehufitz are always present, so it is absurd to say "no true Yid." I think that a recreation or revival of Yiddish identity has to be about us and our existence, not about our politics. That doesn't mean we don't retain our politics, or nourish them through our Yiddishkayt, but it does mean that we don't try to cut out all the bits that don't fit. It means that we struggle within it, rather than try to just use it as a weapon in our class war arsenal.

I really really crave to see a revival of my Jewish culture. I want to hear the language spoken, I want to see bodies move in that Yiddish way, I want to see our communities ingather to a geographic proximity here in the diaspora with clans and extended families and neighborhoods. But without the clownishness of the Shtetl Yid caricature, and with moving forward and incorporating time instead of attempting to "return" to a doubtful and forever gone past.

hey conservative judaism, you ready to stop supporting israel yet?

it's reprehensible that you wouldn't stop doing it over the treatment of palestinians, but enough is enough, they don't like you, they don't care about you, stop helping them.

איר נארישע ציוניסטן
מיט אייער נארישן שכל
איר מעגט דאך גיין צו דעם ארבייטער
און לערנען ביי אים שכל

איר ווילט אונדז פירן קיין ירושלים
מיר זאלן דארט גאלאדיין
מיר וועלן בעסער זיין אין רוסנלאנד
מיר וועלן זיך באפרייען

You foolish Zionists
with your foolish brains
you'd better go to a worker
and learn from them

You want to lead us to Jerusalem
we should starve there
we would rather be in Russia
we will liberate ourselves

This is legitimately going to be a rough month for me; I am already pretty much broke. I have a lot of dried food to subsist on, but am unsure how I am going to pay for e.g. toilet paper, SRS recovery items, get from point A to point B, etc.

I am asking for any kind of support that one might be able to give. I have
