  • Is Prince Charles as admired and respected as The Queen is?

    Best answer: He isn't even respected as much as any of The Queen's corgis. He is a pompous, hypocritical anal orifice. I know, I know, please don't say it, I can hear you already, why am I being so easy on him today!?

  • Why do yeshivas tactfully dissuade non-Jews from pursuing Talmud study?

    Best answer: Moshe commanded us the Torah, which is the inheritance of the congregation of Ya’akov. (Devarim 33:4) He has revealed his word to Ya’akov, His laws and decrees to Yisrael. He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws. Praise God! (Tehillim 147:19-20) Rabbi Yochanan said: “A non-Jew who engages... show more
    Best answer: Moshe commanded us the Torah, which is the inheritance of the congregation of Ya’akov. (Devarim 33:4)
    He has revealed his word to Ya’akov, His laws and decrees to Yisrael. He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws. Praise God! (Tehillim 147:19-20)

    Rabbi Yochanan said: “A non-Jew who engages in Torah study is liable to receive the death penalty, as it is stated: ‘Moshe commanded us the Torah, inheritance of the congregation of Ya’akov’ — it is an inheritance for us, but not for them.”
    Then why is this not included in the Noahide laws? ]It may be subsumed under the existing laws:] according to the one who reads it as morasha, the non-Jew would be stealing it; according to the one who reads it as me’orasa, the non-Jew would be like one who [commits adultery with] a betrothed maiden, who is liable to receive stoning.
    This was challenged with a baraita: “Rabbi Meir would say: ‘From where is it derived that even a non-Jew who engages in Torah study is considered like a High Priest? It is derived from that which is stated: “[You shall therefore keep My laws and My decrees,] which if a man does he shall live by them” (Vayikra 18:5). Priests, Levites or Israelites are not specified, but rather “a man,” which indicates mankind in general. You have therefore learned that even a non-Jew who engages in Torah study is considered like a High Priest.’”
    However, there, in the baraita, the reference is to a non-Jew who engages in the study of their seven mitzvot. (Sanhedrin 59a)

    Rabbi Ammi further said: “The teachings of the Torah are not to be transmitted to a non-Jew, for it is said ‘He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws.’” Chagiga 13a

    From where is it derived that a person may not extend a cup of wine to a nazirite, who is prohibited from drinking wine, and that he may not extend a limb severed from a living animal to descendants of Noah? The verse states: “And you shall not put a stumbling block before the blind” (Leviticus 19:14). But here, in both cases, if one does not give it to him, he can take it himself, and yet the one who provides it to him transgresses due to the prohibition: “You shall not put a stumbling block before the blind.” ( Avoda Zara 6b)

    R. Yechiel Weinberg (Seridei Esh 2:56) interprets the view of the Rambam as seeing the prohibition against Torah study as part of a larger ban against non-Jews who seek to establish a new, independent religion. In this view, if the non-Jew studies merely in order to understand the precepts of Judaism, the prohibition is inapplicable.

  • Why don’t israelis like mizrahim music?

    Best answer: Actually, I've kept up with some culture articles that mention a growing popularity of Mizrahi music. It's still a bit niche though, and not so mainstream so you may have not been in the right places.

    Best answer: Actually, I've kept up with some culture articles that mention a growing popularity of Mizrahi music. It's still a bit niche though, and not so mainstream so you may have not been in the right places. But that's as a category, since Israel's mainstream music scene is actually DOMINATED by Mizrahi individuals. Take Israel's Eurovision winners: I happen to know the 1978 winner was Yemenite, as was 1998's. Last year was won by a Mizrahi girl too, but I forget where exactly her community was from. I can think of a few more famous artists of Mizrahi descent as well, such as Ofra Haza. They often include Middle Eastern beats but it doesn't define their work.

    Israelis don't dislike Mizrahi music as a whole, so I wouldn't generalize them that way. It may not be the most popular genre, but trust me, it's not completely shunned. I personally know a lot of Israelis who appreciate that style.

  • Why do Israeli attacks against the Palestinians never make it to the televised news?

    Best answer: Because the western news media are controlled by zionists. This is why most americans have no idea what really happens in Palestine and why they are pro-Israel. They get biased news.
    If you read mondoweiss.net, you can see a lot of the stories that never make it to the west.

    Are they welcome to visit their ancestors land Israel? I know I am not considered in the Jewish religion anymore, my heritage is by father side. But I still feel deep DNA roots in Israel. When I see many Sephardic Jews I have a feeling they are a kind of long past lost relatives and I feel something deep I can not explain. So I would like to know what Jews think or feel when they know about the Anusim or see one as Jewish descendant.
