Hey all, I have the rule set for Jacob's Ladder and svg of a (very basic) sample board, printable on a large format printer, on GitHub at https://github.com/derpayatz/jacobs-ladder
Why do I spend so much time creating free high quality printable materials of old Yiddish texts and music, using open source tools?
Because I think that such materials and tools must be available to everyone—not just those privileged with academic access—if we want to bridge the chasm created between us and our ancestors by the Holocaust and the era of assimilation, and effect a Yiddish cultural revival in our Diaspora.
jews.intl instance meta
As you can see I haven't been very active lately, and the person who's been doing most of the moderation has left. I can't be responsible for administering this instance anymore, but I don't want to shut it down. So this means I need someone to take my place and take over administering the instance, and ideally take over the hosting contract too.
Help a disabled, black, trans woman on SSI survive this pandemic.
Bumping this post again.
"Look!" Says the goat to his fellows. "I'm doing something! With a strong hand and an outstretched arm I will protect you!"
"How will you protect us?" Ask the others, congregated in their essential workplaces, hoping for some rent relief, PPE, and paid sick leave that won't come.
(Points to the Jews) "By taking care of the REAL cause of your misfortune!"
"Antifascist traditions that have also roots in our history of partisan resistance continue here today."
Italian internationalist on the meaning of April 25 (day of liberation in Italy) and today's anti-fascism.
Help a disabled, black, trans woman with a SSI income survive this pandemic please:
Thought of the day: Debate Class should be banned. It teaches you do double down on everything and treats seeing things from another point of view as loss.
And the leftist twitter crowd will agree, thinking this is about Debate Guy, but the truth is, they've perfected the art of debate by adding emotional manipulation and threatening to exile the loser, pushing both sides to be as ruthless as possible out of self preservation.
Their admin reacted to our concerns with a literal shrug emoji so I don’t think the decision will be reversed.
We will defederate from them on Monday at 20:00 CEST.
If you want a new account, feel free to join us on queerfem.space. We will never voluntarily federate with fascists.
Hey I just want to share this - it's the most beautiful thing I've seen this month. It's the Australian Jewish Labour Bund's commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising yesterday. For people who don't know, the collective yorzayt (commemoration of death) for the people who died in the Uprising is April 19th, the first day of Passover 1943 and the day the Uprising began.
Starting during the war and until today, April 19th is a day known by Holocaust survivors and the partisans and resisters who were in Jewish armed resistance movements as khurbntog (Holocaust Day or Catastrophe Day) because of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Israel created Yom Hashoah for its own purposes but people around the world continue to observe and commemorate khurbntog.
