The Schism in Orthodox Judaism

There is an increasing schism in Orthodox Judaism and a trend by Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) rabbis not to recognize conversions performed by many Modern Orthodox rabbis. This is already full-blown in Israel where Haredi rabbis refuse to recognize conversions performed by the Chief Rabbinate. Confusingly, the Israeli Chief Rabbinate nowadays has increasingly been dominated by HarediContinue reading “The Schism in Orthodox Judaism”

What the Haredi World Thinks of Fellow Jews

Most Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Jews are not Zionists. The majority however accepts the Jewish state but wants it to become a Haredi theocracy. A minority are religious Anti-Zionists who reject theocracy before the coming of the Mashiach (messiah). However, the Haredi Anti-Zionists do not vote in Israeli elections and therefore do not have any influence overContinue reading “What the Haredi World Thinks of Fellow Jews”

Is Judaism Authentic Without Knowledge of Esoteric Judaism?

Knowledge of Esoteric Judaism is shared by small initiated elites in Haredi Orthodox Judaism, Sabbateanism, Mandaeism, denominations of core Median Judaism and possibly Shinto (whose practitioners are not halakhically Jewish because the Japanese are also Buddhists yet practice Median Judaism).

Will Median Jewry Want to Emigrate to Israel?

Jewish consciousness is spreading among adherents of core Median Judaism. All seven denominations (Alawism, Alevism, Alianism, Bektashism, Druzism, Yarsanism and Yezidism) are highly secretive with only small numbers of top clerics in each denomination having been initiated into the secrets of Esoteric Judaism. Yet as the message that Median Jews are indeed Jewish increasingly spreadsContinue reading “Will Median Jewry Want to Emigrate to Israel?”

The Ancient Bisection of Judaism

In 930 BCE was the United Monarchy of Israel divided into two separate kingdoms; the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah. This was the beginning of the division of Judaism – or Canaanite Atenism as it might be more appropriately described – into two realms of religious authority, the Northern JurisdictionContinue reading “The Ancient Bisection of Judaism”
