2250 years ago, Antiochus IV Epiphanes banned bris milah (circumcision)! Jewish woman circumcised their children and jumped off the wall of Jerusalem, al kiddush hashem! Less then 80 years ago, when Jewish woman realized that what they thought was a shower, was actually zyklon B gas, they took pieces of glass and circumcised their children seconds before death! now Germany and new York, democracies, are banning circumcision (or parts of it) Our 3500 year old tradition, which many tried to stop,!

We created this monster called Bloomberg and even supported him while he change the rules so that he can be Mayor a third term. Remember the day’s when the whole community jump at the chance to take a picture with this man.

You can debate the frequency of such transmission and question the studies that indicated such transmission did occur, but you can not say there is absoultely no risk. Ignoring modern science and standards of hygiene and pretending that its rules do not apply to us, makes us look like backwards, uneducated,uninformed, dummies. This whole… Read more »

That’s great! Jews coming together to fight a policy enacted after 7 BABIES got meningitis from an unscrupulous mohel and a group of rabbis who covered things up for him… That’s great that Jews are able to come together like this…
