Too Funny Not to Post

Apparently I've got some chutzpah! My first YouTube attack. I guess I should feel honored. Also, you should know that my "gentile blood" qualifies me as a mudblood. Don't tell Delores!

I don't get what my status has to do with anything, but I never understood trolling and personal attacks in the first place. Feel free to report it to YouTube as cyberbullying, as it most certainly is for calling me "vile" and a "mudblood."

My only "real" response: "Missionizing" presumes that your views are being pushed on me. I guess there's no self-defense allowed.

Since the author doesn't seem to understand the point of my post, it's this: new Jews and new soon-to-be Jews, don't be misled by this horse manure. Seek out reliable sources, and don't take halachic advice from someone without knowing where it comes from. That includes me, and that's why I'm very clear that I am no halachic source. And "Hebrew Christians" who are trying to convert orthodox? You're the ones who are causing today's orthodox conversion process to be hellish. Sincere Jewish neshamas who actually want to affiliate with the Jewish people are pushed and pushed and pushed away because "Hebrew Christians" hide their motives and lie to rabbis in order to secure conversions, and you know, make aliyah to Israel.

But seriously? Hilarious.


  1. How very third grade. I feel like I've magically been transported back in time.

    Also, what's with the 'not even a born Jew' thing? Because converts aren't Jewish? Someone needs to hit the books.

  2. Just to be sure to make the point: it is anti-missionary harassment to point out a blog as a missionary blog.


  3. " We're not forcing ourselves on you "

    mis·sion·ar·y   [mish-uh-ner-ee] noun
    - a person sent by a church into an area to carry on evangelism or other activities, as educational or hospital work.
    - reflecting or prompted by the desire to persuade or convert others: the missionary efforts of political fanatics.

  4. So my understanding is this: Nicki is a messianic Jew, having discovered her family's Jewish identity at some point in the last few years, but somehow has managed to convince herself that messianic Judaism is "the truth." Her entry to you is hilarious, and the video would be funny too if I weren't trying to wrap my head around the logic. Reported the video, for good measure.

  5. I stumbled on this blog awhile back... I was immediately disturbed by the anti-feminist drek she espouses. I suspected that she was a little mishugina then, and this video confirms it!

  6. Here is the comment I left on her blog:

    Jews know that Jesus was Jewish. You don't have to remind anyone or teach anyone. That doesn't mean that we are going to follow a religion about Jesus. Maybe your efforts would be better spent teaching Christians (practicing and not) about the religion OF Jesus (Judaism), rather than the other way around. Jesus' teaches have been around for 2,000 years, we know about them, we're not historically challenged. You think Jesus was the messiah, good for you. We don't. We won't. You have no magic words to change that. I'm sorry that you don't see why appropriating Jewish law and tradition while hiding a belief in Jesus in order to seek a conversion, and then preach about Jesus to Jews is offensive. I don't pretend to understand why you don't, but just because it doesn't personally offend you doesn't make it not offensive to anyone, Jew or Christian who wants to practice their religion. There are plenty of people out there who practice no religion at whom you can direct your "missionary" work. Your blog smacks of the arrogance of immaturity, and maybe when you grow up you will learn to respect other people's beliefs and realize that a difference of opinion (or religion) is not a threat to you.

  7. You have chutzpah? THAT woman has some chutzpah!! I'm sorry, on behalf all of Jews (born and otherwise) I apologize for what she said. EVERY rabbi I have ever had contact with has a.) obviously made the distinction between Jews and Judaism and Torah Observant Christians---there is no gray area, and b.) on the fact that it is everyone's duty as a Jew to welcome other Jews to the tent. We are a welcoming community, and having made your conversion, you are not a "mudblood" (how childish!) you are a Jew and we stood together at Mt. Sinai. There is no difference between converts and Jews post conversion.
    So I'm sorry. It makes my blood boil when I see Jews trying to pull the "more Jewish than you" card. It is a disgrace for all of us, but especially that woman. She should be ashamed of herself.


  8. I think the best part is how many times she used the word chutzpah lol.

    I don't know what else to say really... I think it was clear the meaning of your post. a group of people trying to rip apart and create the fabric of Judaism one Jew at a time is something to get concerned about. It's something to stand up against.

    The problem is with Messianics is that they firmly believe they are entitled to condemn others and that any condemnation of themselves is an attack. It's just very juvenile thinking. Unfortunately most of our modern world thinks very juvenile-like so it catches on quickly.

  9. I'm amused that Nicole of all people calls your Jewish status into question. Nicole claims to be Jewish because her great-great-grandparents on her father's side were supposedly crypto-Jews (

    Be warned: that link leads to all sorts of crazy.

  10. @ Ploni ben Ploni: Yeah, I just noticed the same thing on her Youtube site...

  11. I found this about as mature as a fourth grade spat. She clearly enjoys using the word chutzpah.

    I do find it incredibly arrogant of her to the point of racism to use the fact that you are not "genetically Jewish" as a point in her defense. Judaism is about far more than mitochondrial DNA, but I don't think she quite understands that, or Judaism in general.

    There are some crazies out there. Stay safe.

  12. I don't know who this woman is but you can't be Jewish and believe in J.

    Simple as that.

  13. I've noticed the term "anti-missionary" is getting very popular. If you correct false information suddenly are you a crazy evil anti- missionary trying to crush the soul of the Christian (or Messianic, etc).

  14. You've realised Skylar you have no reason to worry about this. This is just silly. -- B
