0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


“The Jewish people have had difficult times in the days before the coming of the Messiah. The whole house of Israel needs to begin observing the most precious laws!!!!!! Observe Shabbat [1], family purity [2], kashrut [3], laws regarding interactions between people. Dear brothers, please help your people to bring the Messiah closer and teach all the people of Israel to be saved!”

– Yael Safra in ‘Jerusalemites’ FB group

[Selected Comments]:
– “I’m just on my way to eat a cheeseburger with bacon. On this note, I kindly ask all you feminists, religious people and nationalists to stop shoving your ideologies down everyone’s throat!"
– “When is he coming? Is there a date? Oh, I see, he couldn’t come because they’ve blocked the roads [of Jerusalem]!"
– “Respect! This is the only way to save the Jewish people! All those who disagree can leave!”

0202 Editor's Notes:
[1] The Sabbath, or ‘Shabbat,’ is the Jewish day of rest which begins Friday evening and continues until Saturday evening. The Jewish Sabbath observance according to religious law includes many prohibitions on the Sabbath day, such as driving.
[2] Family purity is a set of laws surrounding the times of month a married couple may be intimate with each other according to the wife's menstrual cycle.
[3] Kashrut is Jewish dietary laws. Among the numerous laws that form part of kashrut are the prohibitions on the consumption of certain animals and mixtures of meat and milk.
