As would be fairly common knowledge now, a group of rabbis, with the permission of rabbi Yoel Schwartz, have denounced the teachings of rabbis Katz and Clorfene. I’ve been asked to share the letters so here they are. Open Letter from Rabbis Open Letter from Rabbi Moshe Weiner Rabbi Schwartz on David Katz Advertisements

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, …

“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 …

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 …

Why I think “meat from a living animal” is the/a simple reading of Genesis 9:4

For me, this article has been long overdue. It’s been in my mind to do on my blog for some time. Even though I wrote an article on the same subject elsewhere, I wanted to re-do it here, keep the mental juices flowing rather than mechanically copy-pasting it from its original source. So here goes. …

“But that’s not how it’s supposed to work!” – the thing in the place of Dinim

So there have been a good amount of occasions where judges, lawyers and cops get away with apparent miscarriages of justice. I just heard of an occasion where a guy goes to a government official’s home to get an interview. That G.O. doesn’t particularly like this so he takes the guy’s smartphone from his hand, …

Depravity may lie in two extremes

So I’ve seen two views or extremes amongst Torah observant Jews and “noahides” or “ger,” those claiming to follow the seven laws that I believe lead to immorality. Before I share that, please check out this video. Now, the two views that I believe will lead to immorality are as follows. The first view is …
