The Shabbat given in the late 20th Century – the “universal shabbat”

It’s odd. I did a video about this years ago, but I didn’t write an article. I’ll write the article now, but I’ll still post the video. Ok. So … man, I am surprised I didn’t write about this before. Anyway, may as well fill the void while I’m here. So a convert to Judaism, …

I speak English

This is a rant. Feel free to pass this one by if … wait, why do you need a warning or disclaimer? Let me get on with this. It’s quite obvious, isn’t it? But I’ll say it again in a different way. My first language is English. That’s my native tongue. I know other languages …

“Seven laws not enough” – the much needed detox

It’s nice to meet a friendly person. I did so recently, but in the midst of friendly dialogue, he said something that I felt needed a deep and reasoned response. And of course I gave that response … errr … well … well it seemed … … OK! OK! I ranted, alright! LoL! Yes, I …

Gentile pride

A time ago, I had a great debate/discussion with Dr. Michael Schulman from AskNoah Intl. It was great because it was one of those occasions where we were on opposite sides of a point, but we walked away still respecting each other. He still had the friendly policy of answering my questions when he had …

A 7-Law-Keeping Gentile Still Doesn’t Keep The Holy Days

As we’re in the midst of the Jewish holy day season, a time when certain Gentiles feel inner stirrings about whether to keep the festivals commanded upon the Jews, I feel it’s fitting to publicize a comment I received in response to an old article I wrote about the subject. The original article was called …

The Golem of Straw that Katz built – AskNoah’s statement

So Katz published his article which can be found here. In that article, he put his own spin on an Torah ruling by Rema in such a way that he then inferred from it that AskNoah International (which had quoted from that ruling by Rema) is identifying all “Noahides” as “akum.” That false accusation by …

The Golem of Straw that Katz Built

It’s been a while since I wrote on this blog. I have a bit of time and an opportunity so I’ll just take an article that was shared and critique it. It’s an article called “The Modern Noahides of Noahism are Aku”m” written by rabbi David Katz. It can be found here. Or it should be better …

Honouring murderers (and robbers)

Written in a facebook post, by Robert Higgs. Although it only mentions Americans, it applies to politicians internationally. “Are you ever struck by the number of ultra-criminal individuals — people who have great amounts of blood on their hands (e.g., Henry Kissinger, Ed Meese, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, Richard Perle, Donald …

A little light …

This is a personal one, not really focused on the seven laws, but it’s something I feel like sharing. Hope you don’t mind. So I travel in an automobile. I know that’s an odd way of writing it that way … but the kind few who read my stuff know of my antiestablishmentarianism (lol, what …
