Once again storm clouds are on the horizon. I believe, from
reading the Tanach and from seeing our enemies’ intentions that this will be a bigger and more dangerous war than those
of the past. The Nazi Holocaust has demonstrated the forces that God allowed to punish us. With another holocaust prophesied
and appearing imminent, we have to humbly and seriously acknowledge that our generation is as filled with hatred and unresponsive
to truth as the generation of the holocaust.
And so I write this
letter to you in the hope that it will save your lives, in the distant hope that it will save the lives of any allies who
may join us and in the even more distant hope that this letter will reach whatever sagacious ears exist among our enemies.
I myself am a deeply
reverent Jew. I have been greatly blessed with the simple understanding that the God of our Tanach has Himself set forth the
rules for our lives, and that He accepts no humanly ordained and consecrated ritualistic or ceremonial substitutes for truth,
justice, brotherhood and performance according to His written laws (Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 5:1; 13:1; Joshua 1:7-8.)
I know that most
of you have read the Tanach in school and have dismissed it along with its Author as being irrelevant to your lives if not
entirely mythological. And while some of you believe in God, you do not believe He is serious about compliance with His written
This is not your
fault, nor is it God’s fault. I don’t know how to continue this letter to you without reopening an extremely serious
and ancient controversy. Perhaps some of you will consider what I am about to explain to you and find a more effective and
acceptable way of explaining my point.
Through a combination
of revelations and many years of careful study, I have come to the inescapable conclusion that it is our venerated rabbis
of ancient times who have established a Judaism so full of revisions and contradictions to God’s Torah and
Tanach, that we have developed a Jewish identity, religion, character, lifestyle and ethos which are so far from God’s
plan that we have become incapable of truly observing His Torah laws and fostering His intentions. As a result we lived, not
in the dimension of faith, which would have provided us with all of God’s blessings, but in the dimension of chance
where the forces of evil were free to attack us relentlessly. When the attacks grew in frequency and intensity our rabbis
developed a myth to answer these curses. They told us that God wants us to prove our faith through suffering and that every
moment of suffering and each and every tear drop will not have been in vain. I'm sorry to say, but there is absolutely no
documentation in the Tanach to support this. And while God is certainly suffering through history because He too is obligated
to comply with the Law, there is no virtue in suffering for hundreds or thousands of years. Just because our nation insists
on believing that there is some metaphysical purpose for our suffering, does not make it true! Even less intelligent creatures
would investigate other modes of behavior to avoid suffering. Humans with a social contract in their hands would certainly
reread the words to see if perhaps they had made some error in understanding. However, only an extraordinarily
arrogant people could continue doing the same thing decade after decade and century after century despite the consistency
of curses resulting from the same behavior.
I am not saying that
there was a conspiracy. It was simply a concerted effort of one generation to perpetuate the perceived greatness of rabbis
of the past. Had our rabbis faithfully instructed us to truthfully and completely behave according to the written Torah, we
could have developed the simple faith, that wholehearted compliance with God’s laws leads to blessings.
Had our wisemen shown even average intelligence they would have investigated the nation's performance against the resulting
punishments and led us to the understanding that God is serious about what He provided us with in the written Torah and
wants us to demonstrate that compliance with His laws - not the man-made ones – results in His blessings of victory,
security, health, prosperity and happiness. His intention is for the nation of Israel to be the inspiration for other peoples
and nations to adopt the Torah way of life of truth and justice and of moral and spiritual integrity. He has no desire that
we remain the witness and the proof that God punishes Israel for disobedience.
Israel is called
lion cub a ‘gur arie’ and our women are called lionesses, ‘lavies’ whom God described in Genesis 49:9;
and in Numbers 24:9. We are destined to be cheerful, enthusiastic, courageous, loyal, honest, righteous, just and wholly absorbed
with transforming the world into a community of freely and happily animated brothers and sisters creating utopia by working
with our common Father who has given mankind a social contract – His very own written Torah - of simple understanding
by which to live.
Israel is the model
for human excellence, which God made to embody His image. God created ‘tzellem Elokim’, the proud yet humble representative
of God on earth, not a neurotic, fearful nation of arrogant impostors, mindlessly reciting prayers and performing rituals,
but failing at even the most fundamental Torah laws regarding truth, justice, ethics, and moral and spiritual integrity, not
to mention, brotherly love. We are destined to be courageous and friendly and religiously truthful, honest, righteous and
just, in all matters. We are to use our God – given resources to enhance the quality of life of our fellow brothers
and sisters – the children of our God and Father.
Though we were not
created to be obsessive-compulsive practitioners of thousands of rituals and ceremonies; those who wish to observe these practices
can do so. And when they see that such practices were bequeathed to us by generations of revered, but often misguided rabbis,
who felt no compunctions about revising the laws of the living God and replacing them with substitutions; they may wean themselves
away from such idol worship, as they come to the realization that God created our hearts to be vehicles for His own heart,
and that as it says in Proverbs 20:27, “The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord”.
Had the practice
of rabbinic Judaism led to blessings throughout the ages, had a hundred of our side locked warrior priests chased ten thousand
of our enemies (Leviticus 26:8) we would be a happy, victorious nation of truthful and justice observing priests living in
the most blessed land on earth. But once we see that our religious communities are slaughtered time after time, we need to
find out why God permits these attacks. I can list the numerous contradictions and point out to you the simple Torah laws,
which were obscured, but this would not be a good substitute for your own wholehearted rereading and re discovery of your
God given heritage. You must see for yourselves how our rabbis have transformed “love your neighbor as yourself”
into “what is distasteful to you do not do to another”. You must see for yourselves how the commandment for righteousness
was distorted to mean charity. And you must understand how work on Shabbat and igniting a fire were removed from truth and
reality. I can promise you this, that if you do read the Tanach wholeheartedly and ask our Creator to guide you, that He will
enlighten your understanding in a remarkable way and that you will become a changed – even an enlightened - human being
as a result.
How is it conceivable
that our rabbis count the omer from the second day of Pesach, when the Torah (See Leviticus 23: 11 – 23:15) says to
count it from the day after the 7th day, because the Torah says we’re not allowed to eat bread until we bring
the omer ( See Lev. 23:14) ? The Ethiopian Jews got that law right! How is it that God says not to mention the names of foreign
gods and our rabbis have named two months after Babylonian gods? How is it that God declares that the new year is two weeks
before Pesach and we call the day of remembrance our new year? And if God says to blow the silver horns as we go to battle
so God will give us victory; how come our obsessive compulsive rabbis aren'’t tripping over each other’s feet
to be the first to sound these trumpets? And if God says to bathe after marital relations, how come our religious community
thinks that bathing desecrates Shabbat and then goes about handling and reading the Torah as though they are pure?
There are many more
questions you should ask. Why don’t we blow the shofar when Yom HaZikaron falls on Shabbat? And if we’re not allowed
to ignite a fire on Shabbat, who says we can’t add another log to an existing one? Is adding another word or phrase
to a conversation creating a new conversation? And if even the stranger is to rest on Shabbat, why invent the Shabbes goy
when you were never forbidden to add those logs to your pre-existing, pre – Shabbat fire in the first place? And where
in the Torah does God forbid us to listen to the joyful singing of our women?
We are a truly insane
people because our victory and success are as near to us as our simple, unrevised Torah, yet we have persisted in dysfunctional,
failed life patterns for two millennia.
Because of this established
departure from God’s own law, we have developed a national ethos and character which has led us to every curse delineated
in the Torah, time and time and time again. What blessings we have received have turned out to be momentary reprieves between
punishments of escalating severity (See Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28). Not only have we failed to be pleasing to our Creator,
but now that we have finally been blessed with a state of our own, most of you are so repulsed by the character and behavior
of those who claim to represent God and His Torah, that you have thrown out the religion of these sad, misguided impostors
along with the true Torah and its Author, i.e., the God who wants us to live by His rules and who will protect us and save
us if we do.
Brothers and sisters,
I urge you to pick up your spirits and rise to the challenge to create, in your souls and in our land, the spirit of truth
and justice and yes, brotherhood, so that this nation and the world can at long last be a witness to the infinite generosity
of our Creator. If He can keep the planets and stars from colliding, He can easily provide us with the blessings listed in
our Covenant. Just open your eyes to His Torah and your hearts to His heart and you will see how the world around us
changes for our benefit and the benefit of all good people.
In all fairness to
our religious establishments, I want to add that it is only by an act of extraordinary will that one can extract himself from
the comforts of the social milieu developed in our religious communities and look sentimentally and objectively at our religion,
our past and current leadership and the terrors in our history and conclude that it is time to consider whether or not we
have remained on the same page as our Creator.
War is certainly
drawing near as you read this letter. We must return to our God’s laws and finally start to live our lives according
to His intentions. And when we go to battle, let whoever has a trumpet, bugle or horn bring it with him. And if some of you
want to construct the silver trumpets of our biblical heritage; do so now ! And as we close in on our enemies, blow those
horns so the heaven’s shake and God Himself hears the determination of His sons to follow His laws and go into battle
with renewed compliance with His Torah; faith that He will bless us if we do so, and the courage to fear God alone and destroy
our enemies once and for all so we can enjoy the blessings of victory.
