Discover and read the best of Twitter Threads about #Jewishness

Most recents (3)

1/15 Self-loathing (self-hating) #Jews and the existence of #Israel. After WW2 a lot of #Jewish survivors denied their #Jewishness all together. Converted to Protestantism, became hardcore socialists or even communists. Pretending to by one of the many, instead one of the few.
2/15 Examples in my little family. Another hiding place was to marry non-Jews. Male Jew & non-Jewish woman broke the bloodline. Female #Jew & non-Jewish male was a reason to not follow Jewish traditions. No Brit Milah, no Bar/Bat Mitswah, nada. Also examples in my little family.
3/15 Remember this was in the early 1950/60’s and the man of the house decided most. The deeper thought, no, the huge fear that something like the #Holocaust could happen again was the reason for this. Don’t show the outside world you’re a #Jew, you could be round up next time.

His father Hirschel began his masonic quest in 1813 after joining the The Hanseatic Star lodge in Osnabrück. Karl followed in his footsteps. His connections to ”elite” ashkenazi illuminists such as the Rothschilds, Jacob Schiff, Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin, etc
Karl Marx & his daddy
Heinrich "Herschel" Marx was ancestrally Jewish, and his paternal line had been rabbis in Trier since 1723. They lived a wealthy and middle-class existence, with Herschel's family owning a number of Moselle vineyards.

Here is a thread from my Covenant & Conversation essay on #Balak called "Not Reckoned Among the Nations". You can read it in full here: bit.ly/2JPC7bv and download the accompanying Family Edition here: bit.ly/32ykyFv. #ShabbatShalom Image
There are nations with many religions: #multicultural #Britain is one among many. There are religions governing many nations: #Christianity and #Islam are obvious examples. Only in the case of #Judaism is there a one-to-one correlation between #religion and #nationhood.
Without #Judaism there would be nothing (except #antisemitism) to connect #Jews across the world. And without the #Jewish nation Judaism would cease to be what it has always been, the #faith of a people bound by a bond of collective #responsibility to one another and to #God.
