TODAY – FRIDAY . . . MARCH 30, 2018 – Two World-Changing-Events Have Fallen On The Same Day – PASSOVER & EASTER.
EASTER is the Celebration of the Resurrection, when Christians . . . more than 2-Billion, will Celebrate or Commemorate The Rising Of Jesus Christ From The Dead.
It is Both Unfortunate & Terrible, that in this Day & Age, there are Whole Societies, which Deem the Unrestricted Celebration of Christianity ILLEGAL, as is Evidenced in many Moslem Countries, Asian Countries such as China, and even Cuba, just 80-Miles Off The South Eastern US Coast.
It is beyond belief, that in this Day of Modernity, there are still Societies who Beat, Torture, Disenfranchise, Rape & Murder People for their Non-Threatening & Non Aggressive Beliefs. BUT NONE MORE SO TODAY – THAN TO CHRISTIANS.
Even In America . . . Christianity is under Constant Assault from the LEFT, where the Public Display of Icons of Christianity Are For Too Many . . . in their interpretation, An Insult To Freedom “From” Religion.
But How Do These Manifestly Horrible Things Relate To The Teaching of Christ?
And As A Jew . . . Me Personally – Shouldn’t I be amongst the ones to Rail-Against Christ & Christianity for the Despicable things that have happened to my Ancestors in the Name of Christ . . . From The Time Of The Crusades-On?
GREAT MOVEMENTS . . . Led By Great People, are almost ALWAYS HIJACKED by Despicable People, in Order for them to Advance their Own Agenda – THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST BEING ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST EXAMPLES.
I’M JEWISH . . . And as such, I don’t believe that Christ Was The Messiah whom the Jewish People have been Waiting For . . . BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN – that I am in the Least Bit Opposed to Christ’s Message, Nor To The History Of Christ.
WE WOULD ALL DO WELL . . . To Listen to the Message Of Christ, & Live According to Christ’s Teachings, which in just about every way was taken from the TALMUD (The Root Of Judaism) . . . and the TEN COMMANDMENTS . . . Especially the Passage of . . . Love Thy Neighbor As Yourself . . .
It doesn’t Matter what Religion you Profess to Believe-In, even if you Believe in None, The Message Of Christ . . . who was Born a Jew, Lived as a Jew, and Died as a Jew – is a Message the World Would Be Far Better-Off Following Now . . . Than Today’s Dystopian Message Of The LEFT.
Therefore . . . On My Jewish Behalf – For What It’s Worth – HAPPY EASTER!
Long Before The Founding Of Israel – Long Before the Birth Of Christ . . . & Long Before King David of Jerusalem . . . Moses led the Jewish People from Bondage, from the Land of the Pharaohs . . . To The Promised Land.
And Every Year . . . for Thousands of Years, no Matter the Hardships Faced by Jews anywhere in the World, whether they were at the Hands of the Romans, Greeks, Persians, Crusades, Inquisitions, Pogroms, Nazis & Global Anti-Semitism even Today – In The Year Of 2018 . . . We Jews Have Survived.
From the Time of my Earliest Recollections . . . I Clearly Recall Ending our Passover Seders (Feast) with everyone at the Table, Saying these Simple Four Words in Unison . . . NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM.
Whether we were Poor like my Family . . . or Rich like Others. Whether we were well Educated, or Could Simply Read & Write. Whether we were Employed, Unemployed, a Professional, a Manager, or Owned a Business – THERE WAS ONE COMMONALITY . . .
We all sat at our Passover Table with Family & Friends, Eating the same Traditional Foods, Reading from the same Book (Haggadah), which tells the Story of Moses and the EXODUS from Egypt . . . By The Hand of God, which Brought us to the Promised Land.
EVEN IN THE NAZI DEATH CAMPS . . . Where 6-Million Jews were Slaughtered, there was always Hope . . .
For the Jewish People, We Always Live With Hope, even the Name of the Israeli National Anthem . . . HATIKVAH . . . Translates Into English . . . As “THE HOPE”.
And For All Our Christian Friends . . . Please Remember, Some 2,000-Years Ago, Christ, who was a Rabbinical Student, also Gathered around the Passover Seder, where he and Others Celebrated the Liberation of the Jewish People from Egyptian Bondage, Bringing The World The Ten Commandments.
For Myself . . . I Celebrate Passover, Not As Much out of a Religious Context, but Rather, Because the Story of Passover is the Ongoing, Never Changing History & Story of the Jewish People, which to a Great Extent Makes Us Who We Are.
ANNE & I ARE 2,000 MILES FROM HOME . . . But Even In our Own Way, Tonight, JUST THE TWO OF US, Anne & I will Light the Sabbath Candles, say a few Traditional Prayers, Drink some Kosher Wine as is Instructed in the Haggadah, Eat Matzos . . . And Together We Will Say . . . THANK GOD – WE’RE BACK IN JERUSALEM.
Happy Easter – Happy Passover . . . & May We Forever Be In Jerusalem.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
