Where Did The Nation Of Israel Originate?

To fully understand where Judaism came from, we need to accurately define ‘Judaism’ first. What we know today as the modern form of Judaism, which is a monotheistic and rabbinic Judaism, is around two thousand years old. While that certainly is a long time, the original form of Abrahamic religion dates all the way back to the Iron Age. As far as the regions go, they were the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, and they make up the majority of the Western Bank today.

Leaving aside the notion that Judah and Israel were, at some point unknown to us, a single monarchy ruled by judges before the Institution of David is important. An extremely comprehensive research project has been recently undertaken by archaeologists from Israel to determine whether or not this has any factual basis. Since no evidence has been found to date, we can safely assume (for now, of course) that Israel and Judah were separate nations and developed without any form of political intermingling.

Now, while it is true that these two countries developed separately, they were united in their religion, and therefore had the same practices, freedoms, restrictions, and religious laws. Their people, usually known by historians and by biblical characters as the Israelites, were originally Canaanites who decided that they were fed up with their religion and split apart. However, they still worshipped Canaanite gods and were viewed historically and culturally as Canaanites.

This was not unusual, particularly in the middle east. The majority of countries, cultures, and religions tended to worship polytheistic deities. The foremost distinction ever discovered between the Jews and the Canaanites was this line from the Merneptah Stele; “The nation of Israel was laid to waste, but his seed was not.” This was one of the actions taken by the Egyptians during the subjugation of the Canaanites around the Iron Age, during 1200 BCE, or so it has been agreed.

What this means is still unknown. There is so much that we take for granted, and even more that we do not know about Judaism, the Canaanites, and every ancient culture. What we have taken it to mean, however, is not that they were entirely wiped out. We know that this has to be along the lines of factual basis because they survived the invasion and they were taken as slaves to Egypt, where they grew and multiplied over 250 years.

If you get some time, watch this video on the History of Judaism as it will explain with greater detail what we’re attempting to outline.

Although the different reasonings and circumstances have proven to be too lengthy to list in this article, we know (or so we think) how the original nations of Judaism came about and prospered. During the 10th Century BCE, Judah was little more than a confederation of 20 or so villages, or communities. These included Jerusalem and Hebron, while Israel itself was still the dominant power (regarding its regional superiority) for most of its lifespan since its inception.

The regions that pertained of Judah, Hebron and Israel were little more than continuations of the already traditional Israelite religion because they all hailed from the same place.

The main turning point in Israelite history was around 720 BCE. At this time, the Kingdom of Israel was defeated after an extremely long, bloody, and lengthy battle against the Neo-Assyrian Empire. At the same time, the Kingdom of Judah was so weak and small that it was entirely ignored by the Assyrians, and was never called to arms.
At the same time, under the vicious rule of King Hezekiah, the national religion of Judaism was being secured in Jerusalem.

This marked the first official and widespread origin of Judaism, as it converted, changed, influenced and spread throughout all of the many cultures that converged within Jerusalem’s walls.

What Makes A Kitchen Kosher?

One of the most important elements in the foundation of a holy and traditional Jewish life would be the kitchen, and specifically its Kosher aspects. If you are looking into making your kitchen Kosher, or if you are already Kosher and are seeking to improve your kitchen to be even more so, you will find this article to be very helpful! It may seem daunting at first, but before you know it, keeping your kitchen Kosher will seem second-nature to you!

1. Before The Transformation

Even before your kitchen is officially Kosher, you can prepare appropriately!

  • Stick to buying foods that are officially Kosher.
  • Start keeping your dairy products and your meat products separate from each other. This is a habit that you will need to start, and doing it before you are Kosher can make it a lot easier on you!
  • Remove all foods that can be considered questionable. No, we aren’t talking about pickled rooster throats or something like that, but foods that you cannot seem to find a Kosher label on.

One more thing that you will want to look out for, and ultimately replace, is going to be your silverware and dishes. Try to discard all of the dishes, knives, forks, and cups that have had non-Kosher foods or liquids in (or on) them. This might seem complicated to some people, but it is worth it.

Alongside the dishes and silverware lies an even more important step. You will want to throw out all of the food that you have that is non-Kosher, too. This is a significantly easier process and will only take a minute or two, providing that you actually know which foods are Kosher and which foods are not Kosher.

2. Take Inventory Of Your Kitchenry and Kitchen Items

One of the many things that will make your conversion to Kosher easier and less stressful is to divide everything in your kitchen into two major ‘piles.’ The first of these two groups would contain items or food items that you cannot use in a Kosher kitchen. It also includes items (and food items) that you cannot convert into Kosher, aka becoming ‘Koshered.’

The second leading group pertains to the type of things that can undergo the various actions and procedures that have the common and ultimate goal of ‘Koshering’ said item.

Aside from this, you can expect to spend a little bit of money; this is somewhat of a given when attempting to convert your kitchen to Kosher. Some of the new items you will need to procure include the following;

  • Dishes
  • Pans
  • Cooking Utensils
  • Eating Utensils
  • Sink Basins

…And many other items. These are just the main and most obvious items that you will need to either Kosher (with a Rabbi) or purchase.

These are the two most important things that you will need to complete before your kitchen is Kosher! Let’s go over a little bit of review, shall we? The first step is to throw out all of the food and utensils or dishes that are not kosher, or not able to be ‘Koshered.’ Following this, the immediate second step is to buy or Kosher your already existing utensils and dishes. Enjoy your new Kosher Kitchen! Take a look at the video we’ve included if you’re interested in an in-depth explanation of what a Kosher Kitchen is!

How To Find Ways To Serve In Your Community

Have you ever been in the situation where you desperately wanted to give back to your community, in one form or another, but could never find a suitable way, or just didn’t know where to start? We’ve all been there! We’ve compiled a list of ways for you to serve your community to get you started on your journey of self-happiness and activism!

1. Work At Your Local Events
Help tear down or set up for music gigs in your local coffee shop, or concerts and other activities such as community theatre or sports events. While it is true that professionals tend to hire actual workers to handle the screens, speakers, microphones and other sound equipment, volunteers can run cables and set up chairs and other things alike. Triathlons and other races usually need people to hand out bottles of water or to direct competitive racers in the right direction, so there is a lot of opportunities to be found there.

2. Drive For Other People
If you are old enough to drive and you have your own car, consider running groceries for a nursing home or driving someone to and from home. You can also make yourself useful by offering to drive someone to work or picking up (or dropping off) your neighbors kids from school.

3. Visit Those Who Need Company
This is something that can make your day, and the day of other people, especially the elderly. Visiting nursing homes is very important in our society, especially because of all of the insensitivity in today’s culture. We have parents and children that don’t talk to their respective parents or grandparents anymore, so you stopping by the community nursing home once every week or more could mean a lot to someone.

On the alternative side, the youth needs company as well! Acting as a tutor or mentor to the young people in your community is a precious thing. Do you like to widdle, weld, cook or play the banjo? Consider offering lessons on anything from those listed above all the way to greasing skateboard wheels or car maintenance. There is always room in a child’s mind for learning, and these are skills that may prove to be invaluable to them.

4. Help Outdoors
Of course, you will always want to ask permission before doing this, but this act is a great one too. Surprising your neighbor, coworker or friend by trimming their hedges, watering their plants or mowing their lawn be a great gift if they seem to be unable to do it themselves. It also encourages other people to do community service and is just a kind thing to do.

5. Give Food To The Needy
Everyone appreciates some good food, whether or not cooking is your forte. You can drop off a frozen meal, or ask them in person for a good time to bring over some fresh food. Alternatively, food kitchens and food drop-offs are great ways to give to those who need it in your community, especially during the colder seasons such as fall and winter. Here’s some more info on helping in your local soup kitchen.

6. Offer Your Skills
From accountants to musicians, carpenters to seamstresses, everyone has some skill that they can offer to others. Be careful though, offering and doing the same tasks that you perform at work can cause a burnout on your part!

All in all, there are lots of ways that you can give back to your community. Encouraging these shows people that you aren’t afraid of a little bit of extra work, and can these acts of mercy can go quite a long way in some peoples lives.

The Best Way To Teach Your Children Respect

If you have ever had children, then you have either already reached this stage, you are in the midst of it, or maybe you haven’t yet, and you just want to be prepared! At around age five, respect comes into play quite a lot, and this critical age can decide whether or not your child becomes a successful, respectful and polite little youngster.

At age five, grade school children are not exactly perfect role models of what a dutiful child should be. In fact, it would seem that it is sometimes quite the opposite! At this time, it may feel like they are constantly trying to get your goat, get on your nerves, and make you stress out.

Keep in mind, however, that this is not done on purpose but is, in fact, a side effect of not having been taught respect. Up until then, children are usually given what they want because they are so ‘little and cute’ and are always being babied by his or her relatives.

One of the key things that you can do to lay the foundations of respect is to talk to your child. This may seem like an obvious one and is something that you are already doing, but hear me out! Holding eye contact and sitting or standing correctly when your child is attempting to explain something means that they will most likely replicate that behavior towards you. (Here’s a book worth checking out for some advice: “How to Talk to Your Child”, by Adele Fabor)

Teaching your child correct and polite responses is also very important. At this age, your child will have some basis of respect for other human beings, and will most likely already be saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ quite often. However, it is always a good idea to keep reminding your children to say these words and to get it indoctrinated and cemented into their minds.

Drilling these two phrases into their head is crucial. It is not merely about saying please or thank you when it comes to requesting or receiving something, though. It is about creating a caring attitude of attentiveness and respect. They will use this way of speaking to other children and adults in their social and academic careers, as well as just personally.

Now that we’ve come this far let’s take a look at some of the more ‘extreme’ scenarios where respect, for you and your child, is ultimately needed the most. Let’s say you don’t give little Johnny a cookie (because he had already had one earlier) and he calls you something childish (no pun intended) like ‘butthead.’ Do not overreact!

Children, especially young ones, tend to provoke their parents, siblings, and peers to evoke a reaction out of them. Children love to tease, and when you react to their insult, they tend to get it into their mind that they can always do it. They will repeat this process more and more until you snap (considering thence that you never tried to remedy the situation) and you give them a malicious reaction. At this point, they play the victim, you’re the bad guy, and they get babied by the other parent and become spoiled.

This tends to happen quite a lot and is one of the many reasons why you see so many outright rude or snobby children today. Have you ever been in the supermarket and saw a child begging, crying, or screaming to his or her mother, and the mother is just ignoring the child? You do not want to do this! Instead, respond to the child and correct them gently but firmly. If you do not, they get it into their head that they are permitted at all times to act this way.

To wrap this up, respect is an incredibly valuable tool that needs to be taught to your children from an early age, so that they develop mature and polite social skills for use in their life ahead.

Introduction to Liturgical Vestments in the Catholic Church

The liturgical vestments that are worn at Catholic Church Mass have evolved over a long period. Nonetheless, since the early days of the Catholic Church, priests have worn liturgical vestments to celebrate the Mass. The Old Testament priests wore vestments during the performance of liturgical rites. It should be noted that the Christian vestments were a development of the dress of the Graeco-Roman world and this is inclusive of the religious culture. The idea that the Old Testament had of putting on a particular kind of clothing during the performance of liturgical rites significantly influenced the church.

Liturgical vestments
After Christianity had been legalized in A.D. 313, the Catholic Church proceeded to refine exactly who wore what, when they would wear it, and how. This process continued until the year 800 when all liturgical norms for vesting became standardized. The situation would remain the same until the renewal succeeding the Second Vatican Council.

Currently, a Catholic priest wears a chasuble, stole, cincture, alb, and amice during the celebration of Mass. The utilization of the maniple became suppressed in 1969 following the promulgation of the new Roman Missal.

The alb is a long linen gown that is worn by priests. It only means the white garment. The alb is a survival of the white Roman toga. The white color shows the necessity of purity of both the body and soul, in the person who gives an offering of the Lamb of God to the Father.

The cincture is the girdle worn around the waist to bind the alb very close to the body. It is usually white and is made of wool or braided linen.

The stole is a long narrow vestment worn by the priest around the neck. It has ends which hang down in front. The stole came into use around the 4th century. Originally, it was a kind of cloak or robe but was gradually modified to become a narrow strip.

The chasuble is a long vestment that is usually worn by the priest at Mass. It is worn on the shoulders and hangs down behind and in front. Its rear portion often has an ornamental cross or some other appropriate symbol.

The amice is a liturgical vestment that is a piece of white linen, it is characterized by two long cloth ribbons and is rectangular. It was originally used as a head covering by Roman soldiers underneath their helmets to absorb sweat to prevent it from flowing into their eyes. Its spiritual purpose is to act as a reminder of the St. Paul’s admonition.

The above information about the history of liturgical vestments in the Catholic Church is not exhaustive but just an overview.

Uses of vestments at other Masses
There are various Masses that priests may also use garments such as the surplice, the humeral veil, and the cope. Each has its symbolic meaning and history.

The humeral veil was usually worn by a priest at the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament on the shoulders. During the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, the priest held the Sacred Host for the blessing of the people. The humeral veil is also worn when the priest carries the Blessed Sacrament in procession.

The surplice is a vestment that was worn on top of the cassock when the Sacraments were being administered as well as at numerous services of the Church.

The cope was originally worn during outdoor processions. It was considered a rain-cloak, indicated by the name Pluvial (its Latin name) which means “protection against rain.”

The history of liturgical vestments in the Catholic Church is quite rich and educational as it explains their historical significance and symbolic meaning. All in all, the liturgical vestments that priests wear for the Catholic Mass have two primary purposes i.e. they symbolize each ministry’s function and also contribute to the beauty of the rite.

Here is a short video, and a good explanation on the Vestments in the Catholic Church

Core Beliefs of Judaism

Personal Relationship with God
Judaism primary teaching is that there is only One God, who created the universe, and that every person can have an experiential relationship with Him. They hold that God is always at work in the world and in our times to affect all that people do in their relationships with each other. This relationship God has with his people is covenantal, and for the part of the individual, trust in His goodness and provision is paramount.

Jewish view of God
Many Jews view God as a force, outside of space and time who listens lovingly to all our prayers and at times will perform miracles in the time of need. They do not believe that God is like us, but when explaining similarities may use the phrase, “so to speak.” Some say He holds the universe but is infinitely larger, while others say He IS that universe. But what remains consistent is the admission that God is unknowable and to be ultimately feared and revered.

Knowledge of the faith
The teachings of the Torah have been communicated for thousands of years. The term Torah represents the first five books of the Old Testament. Quite simply, its books tell about the beginning of time, with stories of our first parents, up through the death of Moses. But deeper than that, the Torah holds many truths which they call “the Way”. It is a life guide that unfolds in different levels of meaning according to the maturity of the reader.

Keeping God’s laws
Jewish beliefs are expected to tie in directly to the actions of their daily lives by bringing holiness into every aspect of work, play and each new experience throughout the day. There are laws for eating, drinking, marriage, and business that if followed will produce a healthy and vibrant community. The Jewish people also believe that they are God’s chosen people and are to act as a model of holiness and good morals as an example to other nations

In Judaism, community life is highly emphasized. There are many activities that families participate in to help all their neighbors who are living the faith. The emphasis of community is evident in the various prayers that they pray daily. In their prayer books, they always use the pronouns “we” and “our”, as opposed to other faiths who might emphasize “me”, or “I”. So there is a close familial bond globally in the Jewish Faith.

The faith belongs to the family
Jewish ceremonies start at a young age. A boy is circumcised on day 8 of life, as taught in the Hebrew scriptures. Additionally, there’s an intense educational process to be followed which starts early on in the child’s life. Often, children at a young age can recite by memory, large portions of the Old Testament Bible.

Many activities revolve around food and turning-point life celebrations when families come together in joy and wholeness as they witness the many blessings of their God.

The 5 Most Popular Religions

There are many religions currently in the world, and most have subsets within them. The goal of religion is to help men and women of all ages try and understand their life’s purpose in the world in which they live. Religions attempt to explain what happens after life is over as well as the reasonable proposition of a deity who is in control of not only our lives but the universe as a whole. There are five main religions which make up 90 plus percent of those who have faith in the world.

Catholicism and Protestantism
There roughly 1 billion Roman Catholics in the world. Although identified with Christianity, there are some notable differences with what is generally termed Catholics and non-Catholics, both of which identify themselves as Christians, or “little Christs.” All we will note for this short post is that Christians, both Catholic and Protestant are followers of Jesus of Nazareth, or the “Anointed One” – who they claim is the Son of God sent into the world to bring eternal salvation for all who follow him, as predicted in the Old Testament Bible. There are many denominations, or subsets of Christianity such as Methodists, Lutherans, Baptists, Pentecostals and the list goes on.

Islam
Islam is founded on the various writings of the prophet Mohammad, called the Qur’an. The word Islam means “submission.” Or, one who submits his or her life to God. As with Christianity, there is just over one billion Muslims globally, although it was originally founded in the Middle East. There are also large populations of Muslims in Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Asia.

Hinduism
The word Hinduism was thought up by the West to represent the major social and religious systems in India. However, those who practice their faith call it “the way,” a simple term for the dharma. There are around 900 million people following the dharma in the world today. The majority of Hindus reside in India. However, they’ve migrated all across the world since its ancient beginnings.

Buddhism
Buddha, or “enlightened one” is the basis for the teachings of Buddhism. There are also branches or subsets in this religion. However, all the adherents are happy to call themselves Buddhists no matter the differences. There are more than 350 million followers, and it is placed fourth in the size and scope of world religions. Most Buddhists reside in the Far Eastern regions such as China, Japan, Southeast Asia, and Korea. The teaching is comprised of the “Four Noble Truths” which is primarily about suffering, and the way to deal with it in all humanity.

Judaism
There are about 15 million Jews today in our world. The people of this faith were originally named after those who were of the tribe of Judah, one of the ancient 12 tribes in the land of Israel. The English term for those who came from Judah is referred to as the Jews or Jewish people. They believe they are the chosen people of the One True God and have been set aside as an example to other nations to live out His commands that have been passed down through their teachings in the “Torah,” or the first five books of the Hebrew scriptures.

What is a Rabbi

The word Rabbit means “great one” in the teachings of Judaism. But for all practical purposes, a good way to describe the educational makeup of a Rabbi is one who has studied Jewish law, as well as education and social work.

But most importantly, he is one who has made his primary life goal the study of Torah and rulings of the law in order to pass it down to future generations. Not only that, through their many years of research and experience they have developed the wisdom to analyze events in an unbiased way and so bring a wholesome and loving solution to all those involved in various challenging situations. He is a teacher and one who lives in the Truth. In a Jewish community, a rabbi is often sought in times of crises, emotional needs or spiritual hunger.

Regarding academics, rabbis are expected to be well-studied in the areas of medicine, astrology, astronomy, and mathematics and also familiar with pagan practices. Also, he needs to be astute with the ability to judge complicated cases regarding the religious law. Additionally, they must have humility, wisdom and the fear of God as well as detachment from worldly goods. Well, that’s a pretty tall order. But, with the help of their God, he will be equipped to maintain peace within the walls of his people.

Often people will look for a teacher or guide and not know where to turn. They question whether people who are termed “Rabbi” are truly legitimate teachers or just hoaky posers; can anyone be labeled a Rabbi?

If one looks for a teacher, they shouldn’t blindly trust the first person they encounter. One should inquire with sincerity the various teachers and get recommendations, noting their credentials to see if he has wisdom and is involved in, and respected by an active community. One should try and meet his disciples to see if their dispositions are real and genuine. These are a few things to look for when searching out a respectable Rabbi. Be sure to do your research and test for authenticity.

Rabbi or Priest?
The two offices are different. Rabbi’s worked in the local synagogue with no pay. They commonly held a side job to support themselves and didn’t belong to any particular tribe or family, nor were they even required to hold the position. Priests, however, were from the line of Aaron (as noted in the Hebrew bible) and were paid to work in the Temple located in Jerusalem. There were many in the time of Jesus, and often they worked only parts of the year.
Not only in some practical ways are there differences, but also in their theological beliefs. Priests were often members of an aristocratic party called the Sadducees. They tended not to believe in the afterlife, angels or spirits. The Rabbis were usually the Pharisees, however, and believed in just the opposite. These were big issues in the day, and as a result, there was often hostility between the two groups.

All this to say, though times have changed, today if you are looking for a guide, you’d be better attended by a Rabbi. He was considered a teacher in the synagogue back in the day, and remains a teacher now, fulfilling the same duty; seeing to the well-being of his community.

  •  Moses did not eat and drink for 40 days in Mount Sinai in preparation for his mission to receive the Ten Commandments.

Aside from these, Lent is the Latin word which means fortieth. The number 40 is significant to many events that transpired in the Bible as mentioned above which showed repentance, mortification of the flesh, penance, prayer, self-denial, and almsgiving.

What are the practices related to the Lenten Season?
Use of anything purple – The darkest shade of purple is used but the Christian Church to symbolize the state of soul when it still lacks the light of Christ, it is also a color of repentance. Purple decorations adorn churches during this time as a reminder for believers to pray and repent.
