Baptist Missionary Village makes Illegal Pitch at Maccabiah 2009

The Kosher Christian Controversy

Should a Jewish convert to Christianity be trusted with matters of kashrut? The Chief Rabbinate and two local rabbinates said “no”. The secular Supreme Court of Israel – which in recent years, has been telling the Israeli Rabbinate how to keep kosher - said “yes”.

The gist of it in a pastry shell:

Penina Conforty, a Yemenite Jew, had the kashrut certificate of her bakery business (“Pnina Pie”) removed in 2006 by Ashdod’s Chief Rabbi. Rabbi… Continue

Christocracy in the Holy Land

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) regularly disseminates seemingly pro-Israel news bulletins. But anybody who has the good sense to follow the traditional Jewish dictum of “respect and suspect”, will take care to read between the lines.

TIP–off on Anne Ayalon

Likud’s Assulin: Opportunist or Apostate?

It’s hard to know what truly motivates a young Israeli politician to embrace a Jesus cult, but on the eve of Shavout - a festival which marks our spiritual redemption from the bondage of idolatry and immorality – Likud’s Sagiv Assulin has chosen to play with a strange fire which threatens to consume the Jewish State.
