Manifesto

I advocate kindness and good vibes toward all Jewish people. I like black people and people of all races, nationalities, religions; and I like gay people. It goes without saying but due to the stigma associated with holocaust denial, it needs to be said. I feel that it was Hitler’s belief in military solutions that was primarily responsible for the European disaster that was World War II. I just believe the holocaust is a hoax. Today it is the holocaust myth that props up militarism. Here’s why:

Of the many terrible things about World War II, the single worst thing wasn’t the holocaust, because that’s a myth. The worst thing was German soldiers fighting Soviet soldiers because millions of young men on both sides died horrible deaths. That war was started by Hitler and, rather than the crude concept of “fighting communism,” it galvanized Stalin’s power and made void the internal workings within the USSR that might have deposed him. The young men put between Stalin and Hitler and being conscripted to fight, was the worst thing about WWII. And the lesson from that is militarism and military solutions are always a disaster. That lesson is obscured when the worst thing about World War II is considered to be the holocaust because then the opposite conclusion is drawn: militarism seems good. Righteous militarism to defeat Hitler. Fighting intolerance. Americans largely see World War II as the “good fight” against Evil. The holocaust myth props up that assertion and obscures the truth: World War II was a European disaster.

The holocaust myth gives a “fighting for tolerance” theme to World War II, and the “fighting for tolerance” theme continues to justify military aggression up to recent times: it was used to justify the US invasion of Serbia/Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. The wrong conclusions about World War II based on the false information that is the holocaust, reverberate into militaristic solutions creating disasters today.

Because the holocaust myth was never exposed, the masses never lost their gullibility and are easily manipulated for pro-war purposes. Here’s an example: before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, not only did most Americans believe Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, many also believed he had killed millions of his own people.

The good/evil narrative of WWII is a blur with the good/evil narrative of so many bad movies, t.v. shows, and reportage. Things become more and more like the movie Idiocracy, and fitting that the ending of that movie involves a dumbed-down explanation of World War II. In reality people aren’t really “evil” –there’s just the challenge of understanding why people do what they do. The holocaust myth holds up the conception of Evil itself.

Christianity is a proud and interesting cultural heritage. But as a present-day belief system it can hold people back intellectually and culturally. A fundamental of Christianity is it’s dumb portrayal of evil. But consider the possibility that a modern dumb portrayal of evil is the holocaust. So like Christianity, could the holocaust also hold people back intellectually and culturally? A fundamental of both being a worldview of good and evil? And could this hold society back, ping pong-ing, or reinforced with, media capitalism? We see news reporting and television shows, movies promoting righteous violence to take on “evil people.” On a global level the “evil people” are often resistant to capitalism like North Korea; or resistant to Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians (Iraq, Taliban, Al-Qaeda) Again the movie Idiocracy comes to mind when it had a stadium sports-like media spectacle of the USA using overwhelming force on it’s enemies. The stadium spectators playing electric guitars while monster trucks ran over the enemies.

Not to mention that the false postulate that is the holocaust is the cornerstone of European Jewish colonialism in Israel and all the problems which have come from it. Iran’s Ahmadinejad is right about that. We have the horrible bookends of European Colonialism: European Christian colonialism (The Crusades) 850 years ago, and European Jewish colonialism (Zionism) from the early 1900’s till today. These bookends of colonialism had European laws associated with them: Heresy then, and denying the holocaust today. The laws keep people from debunking the intellectual/emotional basis of the colonialism, of the militarism of the colonizers.

In Germany the myth has ridiculously warped the general personality of the people. But it’s not just Germany: The longer European and American intellectual thought has in its foundation this false postulate that is the holocaust, the weirder, dumber (and more aggressive toward other nations) things are going to get.

It’s time to move beyond the myth.

Unique Jewish Gifts & Judaica

More than two thousand years ago the Jewish nation was largely expelled from the land of Israel. Since then, Jewish people have been scattered around the world, forced to create their own communities in exile. Throughout history, Diaspora Jews have lived mainly in Europe, some Arab countries, and, after the 20 th century immigration wave, also America. Many European Jews came back to the land of Israel after World War Two and established the state of Israel as a home for all Jews.

Jewish communities around the world have been influenced by the diverse cultures to which they were exposed. Inevitably, certain elements have integrated into the Jewish culture. At the same time, common narrative and symbols have preserved the unity of the Jewish people. In recent years, Judaica was developed as a popular way to express Jewish identity through art.

The Jewish narrative tells the history of a people that has always felt and expressed a deep nostalgia to the Jewish homeland and a strong connection to the Jewish heritage. In many places around the world, Jews were prosecuted because of their religious faith and lifestyle. Nonetheless, Jewish people all around the world stuck to their collective identity. Such Jewish motifs as the menorah or the Tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) have played a major role in preserving the religious, cultural and national identities of the Jewish Diaspora.

Supported by local and global interest and demand, today’s Judaica artists embrace these elements in their work. Contemporary Judaica artists turn traditional religious articles, such as Shabbat candlesticks, into an artistic expression of faith. Judaica artists recreate ancient Jewish objects through a contemporary process, giving it a modern perspective. Unlike in previous eras, current Judaica artists offer bold and sometime even controversial interpretations of religious symbols. How about a mezuzah case that looks like a spaceship?

Through their artworks, Judaica designers seem to claim that even in our secular modern society, Judaism is still relevant and dynamic. These Judaica artworks cross the boundaries of the traditional assumptions about religious objects as simple and grave. Todays’ Judaica artists make people think outside the box. Indeed, it is the sign of true art if people cannot remain indifferent to it.

In addition to causing this de-familiarization, the designers often choose to treat the ancient tradition with humor by using bright and cheery colors in their works. Such designs help the artwork stand out and delight the eye. In addition to owning the pieces for personal enjoyment, people love to give Judaica art as gifts that are original, decorative but also practical. For example, such gifts as designed Tallits, Hanukah menorahs, Torah pointers or candlesticks for a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah mark important moments in the lives of the receivers and symbolize transition into more active roles in religious life.

The combination of elements might explain the growing popularity of Judaica art in the last few years. Many Judaica items clearly reflect the ongoing changes in the modern Jewish society. Today, it is more common to find handmade Tallits that are designed for women. Another new ritualistic item is the Miriam’s Cup. The Cup is p laced on the Seder table beside the traditional Cup of Elijah. Miriam’s Cup reflects the significance of women in the story of Exodus. The water that fills the cup symbolizes Miriam’s Well – a miraculous source of water that saved the Israelites in the desert. These new rituals are a reflection of a larger trend in many religious societies across the world today – a gradual evolution from patriarchy and embrace of modern and socially-conscious values, especially among the reforms.

 

Judaica art is not limited to religious articles. The Star of David that decorates the Tallit, also appears on the national flag of the state of Israel. Many Judaica designs incorporate this famous Jewish symbol. The Star of David has become a popular motif in Jewish jewelry making as so many people enjoy expressing their strong connection to the state of Israel.

 

In Israel, Judaica art provides a much needed space for diverse cultural influences. Esther Shahaf, an Israeli designer, is a great example of how different and sometimes conflicting elements intertwine harmoniously. In Shahaf’s works, oriental influences such as the Semitic designs gracefully complement the Western motifs. Israeli artists also draw their inspiration from the everyday surroundings such as the landscape of Jerusalem. Among Israeli Judaica designs you can find mezuzah cases and other objects directly inspired by The Western Wall, a prominent motif that describes the mourning of the second temple that was destroyed more than two thousand years ago.

HAVANA, CUBA The Jewish Heritage



Jews in Cuba (from the Encyclopedia Judaica) “The first Jewish group to settle in Havana after Cuban independence (1902) came from the United States. They founded the United Hebrew Congregation in 1906. They were followed by Sephardim, mainly from Turkey, whose communal congregation, Shevet Ahim, was founded in 1914. In the 1920s thousands of Jews from Eastern Europe arrived in Cuba, hoping to use it as a stepping stone to the US Many of them settled in Havana, where they founded the Centro Israelita (Jewish Center) in 1925, together with a large number of social, religious, cultural, and political organizations. In the late 1930s and during World War II Havana became a temporary haven for thousands of Jews fleeing Nazi Germany, using loopholes in Cuba’s immigration laws. In May 1939, however, Havana was the scene of the tragic episode of the SS *St. Louis, whose passengers were refused landing and were compelled to return to Europe, where many of them perished in extermination camps. Following World War II the Havana community prospered both economically and socially. In 1951 the Ashkenazi community laid the cornerstone for the Patronato, a magnificent building that symbolized the social mobility and prosperity of Havana Jews. When the Sephardim inaugurated their Sephardi Center, Fidel Castro was already in power. The Cuban revolution of 1959 marked the decline of Havana Jews. Following the nationalization of private business, around 90% of them emigrated from Cuba, most

How To Plan Jewish Heritage Travel For Children & Teens: Gil Travel Shares Tips For An Israel Family Vacation That Is Fun For All Ages

Planning an Israel family vacation presents an exciting opportunity for children and teens to learn about culture and history.  Israel offers a unique atmosphere of culture and adventure to give younger family members an educational experience that is not only informative, but fun.

Susan Blum, manager of the Israel Department at Gil Travel, a leader in Israel tours and Jewish heritage travel since 1974, shares insight into how an Israel vacation can be fun for all ages, especially children and teens. 

Choose An Israel Tour Guide That Has Experience With Children.

According to Blum, choosing the right tour guide can play a major role in the overall quality of the tour. “Some guides have more experience with children than others, but across the board the tour guides in Israel are the most renowned in the world.  Many of our guides have taken psychology courses to better relate to and interact with children,” Blum reports.  “We make a strong effort to match each guide with the type of people on a particular tour, in order to find the guide that is most suitable to each group’s age range and interests.”

Incorporate Adventure Into Your Family Tour To Israel.


“Jewish heritage travel is packed full of history, and we aim to present the information in a way that is interactive and fun for children,” Blum says.  “Of course, not every group wants to dive into the water or go for a plane ride, but for those that do have an adventurous side, Israel offers many exciting opportunities to experience extraordinary adventure.”

 Just some of Blum’s favorite educational Israel adventures include:

–A donkey ride at Kfar Kedem, where travelers can actually hitch a plow to one of the donkeys and work the land or put their shoulder to the wheel of an ancient grindstone to prepare the whole-grain flour.

–A jeep ride up the Golan Heights, one of Israel’s most beautiful and controversial regions.

–A chance to pet the kangaroos at Gan Guru.

–A swim in the Gan Hashlosha water springs.

–A trip to the new Jerusalem Zoo and Wohl Archeological Center

–A (surprisingly affordable) plane ride over the Dead Sea.

–Bike riding in the Hula Valley

 

 Have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah In Israel.

 “Celebrating your special day at a historic place, as part of an Israel tour, strengthens your family’s ties both to each other and to Judaism,” Blum explains.

 “We have guided countless families in arranging for the Bar or Bat Mitzvah in Israel,” she reports.  “From helping find a Rabbi for the ceremony to arranging all the details of the celebration, we’re experienced in every aspect of Bar or Bat Mitzvah planning.  We also incorporate community service projects, or Mitzvah Projects, into Bar/Bat Mitzvah Tours of Israel.”

 According to Blum, Gil Travel can connect families with community organizations and service projects based on each Bar/Bat Mitzvah child’s interest.  Some of the agency’s favorite community service opportunities in Israel are with the following organizations:

 Etgarim: A non-profit organization that was founded in 1995 to help children, adolescents and adults rehabilitate themselves physically, mentally and socially, through challenging sports and outdoor activities.

 The Israel National Therapeutic Riding Association (INTRA): A non-profit organization committed to teaching equine skills and horseback riding to people with a wide variety of disabilities.

 Ofanim: An organization dedicated to bringing supplemental education to the poorest and most under-served communities in Israel.  Created in 2004 by Haim “Emil” Dahan, Ofanim now operates 6 high tech mobile classrooms that literally “drive education to Israel.”

 In addition to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Blum emphasizes that Gil Travel is experienced in providing complete planning services for all types of occasions.  “We can also plan anniversary parties, wedding vow renewals and any other special family celebrations in Israel,” she says.
