This is the rite of brit milah (circumcision), performed by a mohel (not necessarily a rabbi) who acts as a proxy for the father. The act of sucking blood from the baby’s penis is called metzitzah b’peh

Unlike some openly Antisemitic sites I inevitably bumped into while researching this, I don’t believe this has any connection with paedophilia or homosexuality. However, it clearly qualifies as genital mutilation.

In America and some Muslim and Jewish countries, circumcision is routinely performed on newborn babies, for all sorts of specious reasons.

It has little to no health benefits, and although originally popular among non-Jews as a deterrent to masturbation, it’s primarily done these days for religious or aesthetic reasons. It kills around 117 babies a year and has many adverse affects on the body and mind (for instance, in 2012, eleven babies in New York City contracted herpes from a brit milah)

Circumcision is harmful, and violates your baby’s right to bodily autonomy.

READING BETWEEN THE LINES: CURVESINCOLOR

  • I only care about MY ethnic minority and all the others could DIE and I wouldn’t care! I say I DONT MIND Jews and I promise even my BEST FRIENDS ARE JEWISH but THEY ARE NOT ZIONIST SCUM.
  • JEWS ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD. I think HITLER HAD THE RIGHT IDEA and they should all DIE AND I WOULD CELEBRATE THEIR DEATHS. 
  • I IGNORE THE FACT THAT JEWS CAN BE BLACK TOO. I like to CALL THEM OUT ON THEIR RELIGION and tell them THEY AREN’T ACTUALLY JEWISH AND I KNOW BETTER THAN THEM. 
  • I THINK WE SHOULD IGNORE THE GENOCIDE OF THE JEWS. Because it doesn’t INVOLVE ME so I have to make sure I GET INVOLVED ANYWAY. because this event didn’t happen to MY PEOPLE I need to SOMEHOW MAKE IT ABOUT ME ANYWAY.
  • I ACTUALLY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT JUDAISM AT ALL but I pretend I do and SHAME JEWS BECAUSE I KNOW MORE THAN THEM
  • WHO CARES ABOUT SIX MILLION JEWS THEY WERE WHITE SO THEY DESERVED IT.
  •  And they STOLE the black culture anyway AND JEWS BEING WHITE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM BEING KICKED OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.  They are not really Jews THEY ARE WHITE SUPREME ZIONIST PIGS

The Synagogue in Walnut Street that looks as if it was made of Walnut.

The Agudat Israel Synagogue in Chelsea, Massachusetts was dedicated in 1909 at a time when one third of the town’s residents were Jewish. Built by working class immigrants, it continues to be one of the most beautiful synagogues in the state.

G-d’s Chosen Home
When Maimonides discusses the biblical commandment to build a Sanctuary for G-d, he quotes the verse: “Build for me a Holy Temple.” As such, he should have called the section of his code of Jewish law which deals with the sanctity of the Temple, as the Laws of the Holy Temple. Why does he instead call them, Laws of the Chosen House?

The Rebbe speaks on 17th Tammuz 5744/1984 (video in Yiddish with English subtitles).

Dear "But Hillary would be the first female president" people

You know what Bernie Sanders would be? The first Jewish President. And alongside that (though it goes without saying) the first non-Christian President.

In a country dominated by Christians, run on their values, and where ‘because the bible says so’ is considered a valid political argument, that’s just as important (if not moreso) as a female president. And while its not ever been as prevalent as racism or mysoginy, antisemitism has played a role in American history (and Western history in general), so this would also be a way to push away from that.

Just thought I’d point this out, since no one seems to be talking about it.

Cindy: Hey… can I be a Jew?

Rabbi: No.

Cindy: Can I be a Jew?

Rabbi: No.

Cindy: Can I be a Jew?

Rabbi: You really want this? Sincerely? Not ‘cause this one’s trying to blackmail me for something stupid when I was 19 or for broccoli with your dinner? What is this for you?

Cindy: Honestly, I think I found my people. I was raised in a church where I was told to believe and pray. And if I was bad, I’d go to hell. And if I was good, I’d go to heaven. And if I’d ask Jesus, he’d forgive me and that was that. And here y’all are sayin’ ain’t no hell. Ain’t sure about heaven. And if you do something wrong, you got to figure it out yourself. And as far as God’s concerned, it’s your job to keep asking questions and to keep learning and to keep arguing. It’s like a verb. It’s like … you do God. And that’s a lot of work, but I think I’m in, as least as far as I can see it. I mean, maybe I’ll learn more and say fuck the whole thing, I mean, but I wanna learn more, and I think I gotta be in it to do that. You know… Does that make sense? Shit, did I just talk myself out of it?

Rabbi: Ask me again.

Cindy: Can I be a Jew?

Rabbi: Yes.
