    יְהוֺשׁוּעַ or יְהוֺשֻׁעַ ?

    יְהוֺשׁוּעַ with the second Vav appears only 2 times. יְהוֺשֻׁעַ with only one Vav appears 216 times. What does it mean? And which is the original one?

    There is no Judaism vs. Christianity - There is Judaism and there is Christianity

    In reality there is no Judaism vs. Christianity. As far as Jews/Torath Mosheh/Judaism are concerned Christians can beleive whatever they want, how they want, etc. Most Torah based Jews are not trying to convince Christians to change their religion, adjust their religion, or even to accept Jewish...

    What's the biggest threat to the Jewish people today?

    Judaism DIR I've been wondering about this for a while now. Some people used to say Christianity with its missionaries, inquisitors and antisemitic decrees. There are still organizations today who work to fight off Christianity from influencing and turning away Jews from Judaism. Others might...

    Was Jesus really a Jewish rabbi?

    In more recent times, I see more and more Christians claiming that not only was Jesus a learned scholar, but he was actually a rabbi. This is evidenced, in their view, from the fact that he's called "rabbi" by some in the NT. In Judaism, though, this is not a feasible view. Not because there's...

    Can a Jew answer this?

    [Mt 22:41-46] And when the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, What think ye of the Christ? Whose son is he? They say unto him, David's. He saith unto them: How then doth David call him Lord in spirit, when he saith, " The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right...

    Is according to Jews everything God's will?

    When David killed righteous Uriah, was it God's will? When Israel forsook their God, was it God's will? When a person sins, is it God's will? Is everything God's will, or is there also coincidence?

    Darwin's Theory | True?

    Peace Be Upon You. So let's suppose that what Darwin said was right, Humanity has evolved from Apes, somehow it was proven scientifically that Apes were the origins of a creature that can think, understand, express his thoughts, have consciousness and choose his path in life, but then, does...

    Was Alexander Hamilton Jewish?

    Judaism DIR Nice video. I'd heard of the notion in the past, but I like how it was presented in the video. So, what do you think? Just BTW, on the halachic side, if I remember correctly, though his mother didn't divorce her first husband and Hamilton's dad wasn't Jewish, he isn't a mamzer.

    Top 9 Biggest Fears of Orthodox Jews

    1. Fleishikophobia - The fear of being fleishik (and potentially missing out on an improbable and completely hypothetical milk-based dessert, should it just happen to pop out of thin air). The most serious of Jews, the S'fard Ashkenazim, who keep six full hours of waiting time between eating...

    Why don't Jews and Muslims eat pork ?

    If Zoonotic diseases come from being in close proximity to animals and not being evolved enough to eat them then did pigs cause disease in the Middle East thousands of years ago ? Is that the reason Jews and Muslims don't eat pork ? If that's the case then we've evolved enough to eat pork for at...

    Simple Reasons Why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus and Christianity

    There have been several threads recently where questons have come up as to: Why do Torah based Jews not accept Chrisitian scriptual interpretation? Why do Torah based Jews not Jesus as a/the Messiah? Why is there a divide between "Judaism" and "Christianity?" It is hope that in this post these...

    Is the Christian God the same as the Jewish God?

    While I was raised knowing that the spread of Christianity helped popularize the notion of Monotheism, more recently I've wondered whether the Christian God is the same as the Jewish God. Setting aside the question of whether or not the Christian deity has a triune nature or if Jesus is god - if...

    Josiah and the Theocrats

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to offer my take on a country that had split from its parent country, assumed it was morally superior, and yet didn't last long due to greed and racism. No, it's not about the Confederate States of America, but it's close! It's about King Josiah and his attempts to...

    Chosen Aliens

    ...no, the title isn't meant to be antisemitic... I saw this quote from Rabbi Yosef B. Soloveitchik the other day and found it thought-provoking (although, what in his teachings isn't? :)): Rabbi David Holzer: "Would the discovery of alien life be an issue in terms of the Torah view?" Rabbi...

    Fulfillment of Prophecy in the New Testament

    Hi there, As a former Christian, having read the Old Testament and New Testament to completion and numerous books multiple times, it has always occurred to me that a few Old Testament scriptures that the New Testament says was fulfilled by Jesus or in some other way, seem to have been taken out...

    Judaism and Modernity

    I came across this quote today while going through old threads on the Judaism DIR (emphasis mine): "...Theologically there is nothing un-Orthodox about any of their interpretations of Torah, only that they seem to approach it in a way that allows them to meet modern ethical standards and...

    Jewish & Judaism FAQs

    Based on a discussion we had between a few of the Judaism adherents here on RF, we thought we'd set up this thread to answer some basic, common questions about Judaism. Everyone's welcome to ask follow-ups and we'll do our best to answer them. Other Jews/Noahides - welcome to correct me, add...

    Torath Mosheh

    I decided to addres a few questions about Torath Mosheh here in this thread. It will make it easier to explain what the term means and why it is used in a number of Jewish sources. I am working on a video to give more detail. I hope to have it done soon. Until then this video may give some detail.

    Jews and Noahides: Rabbinical Judaism?

    Note: This thread is for Jews and Noahides only. If neither of those terms describe you, please refrain from posting here. Thank you. "Rabbinical Judaism" is a term I see that's tossed around, mostly by Christians, but also by various academic scholars. It's something that's always bothered me...

    Hebrew Calendar question

    There's a certain poster here who claims to have definitive proof that Jesus's death was Erev Pesach on a Wednesday. He bases his claim on the research made by one Herbert W. Armstrong which can be viewed here: The Resurrection was not on Sunday - Herbert W Armstrong and here: Herbert W...
