    Hashem as the single Source of creation (Ancient Yisraeli / Yehudi Concept)

    In this thread I will be addressing the issue of whether or not the ancestors of modern day Torath Mosheh and Orthodox Jews at some point changed from following the fundamentals of the Torah as expressed in the Talmud and by the Rishonim.

    The Israel/Palestine Discourse Monopoly

    Hi there, I am interested in hearing peoples motivation behind discussing the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Why is it popular in discourse and what motivates people to support either side, often with such emotional investment, especially if they are not Israeli or Palestinian? And why do...

    WHO IS GOD'S TRUE ISRAEL IN THE NEW COVENANT?

    GOD'S ISRAEL IN THE NEW COVENANT ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES ARE NOW ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND OBEY GOD'S WORD!

    Visiting Israel and Jordan

    I really want to go to Japan and South Korea (70%) but 30% of me would prefer to visit Israel and Jordan because the climate is better and the food is superior. What is there to do there ? Amman, Petra and Jerusalem definitely sound interesting but I was told Tel Aviv is overpriced.

    The Importance of Correct/Accurate Terminology in Discussing Torah/Yahaduth

    I plan on making this into a reference thread. That way I don't have to repeat the same information or better yet allow me to refer others to this.

    Israeli Memorial Day 2022

    Today is the Israeli Memorial Day (Yom HaZikaron in Hebrew) when we remember all those who have fallen during military service or during terror attacks. Memorial Day in Israel is a big deal.

    Mudbricks and Murmurs

The idea of the...

    Journal post no. 2

    I couldn't think of a creative title. I have failed you all. Anyway, like the title says, this is in Journals, and I don't post here much (this is only the second time I've made a journal entry-thread here, I think). Just wanted to share some thoughts. This is about politics and archeology, but...
