about to say something heretic but i want to preface this with the fact that i’m jewish so it doesn’t count. was jesus… chuck’s vessel?
hey just for the record: it’s weird for goyim to call god hashem, please don’t do that.
the destiel renaissance have caused me to follow a bunch of Christianity Enthusiasts (affectionate) and i feel like im knocking on the glass at an aquarium like my jewish brain has v little idea of what is going on over there bc im all like “wait yall are actually xtian i thought it was just a meme” but i do love yall! anyways. tbt to me asking my raised-catholic roommate if jesus is technically a bastard (due to being conceived out of wedlock obviously)
Me: “Why are you blaming me for this???
My parents, simultaneously and speaking over one another: "Jews are blamed for everything, don’t you know?”(said by my dad)/“Aren’t you a Jew? You should be used to being blamed for everything by now” (said by my mum)
16) Meaning behind my URL
It’s three words - gesher tzar meod and means “a very narrow bridge” in Hebrew - it’s part of a saying/song from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, who lived in the 1700s-1800s, with the whole thing meaning (with various translations) “All the world is a very narrow bridge, and the most important thing is not to be overwhelmed by fear.
Although it’s not something I’m using rn bc complicated Judaism feelings, I used to listen to this song/sing it when I was stressed or anxious or upset. I really love that it first acknowledges the scary thing, that the danger is real and present, and then instructs a lack of fear, or suggest not to shut down because of fear. It’s not the “everything’s going to be alright,” it’s “yes, it’s scary, and we’ve still got to keep going, and we have to hold the fear, or hold the fear down, and keep walking.”
83) Have I ever got caught sneaking out or doing anything bad?
Uhhhh I’m not even sure I’ve ever snuck out lmao. I don’t do anything 😂. But this year I stole my brother’s identity without asking him in order to continue using Spotify Premium, bc he used google music, but then they CANCELLED google music and he wanted Spotify and it got fucking messy and honestly hasn’t even really been resolved, I just got hacked for a month and then it just kind of fizzled as an issue. And like. I’m clearly in the wrong but I also still don’t feel bad because I thought he was going to keep using Google Music! But this was not only a big dramatic thing between us but my parents knew too and even though they barely understood what it meant they were arguing with me about it/not happy with me about it which like, yeah, fair. anyway pls don’t tell spotify thanks
109) Would you rather live without TV or music?
This is so hard… I honestly watch TV much more than I listen to music. But also TV without music wouldn’t even be that good??? So… music. And I’ll just read a lot of books, and at least have movie musicals to survive off of (AHHHH yeah I absolutely cannot give up musicals)
But also if I’m cheating I could say I barely ever actually watch TV, like, I don’t have cable… I’m watching stuff on my computer on streaming platforms…… what if that doesn’t count…
forever thinking about her
(hannah by isidor kaufmann)
Every time i see a post about reform judaism, I think how complicated the situation is in France.
I’ve said this like twelve million times but I miss going to synagogue so much. It’s been so long and it’s so hard. I really, really want to attend a Kabbalat Shabbat service, in person, and sing.
it’s real fun trying to Avoid Judaism Entirely because Reasons and also your mom is in charge of sunday minyan so you end up at least hearing minyan every week and often having to join and also your bubbie thinks you’re still a torah/talmud scholar or at least Interested and Literate so you get quizzed and you have no idea and dont want to learn the answer and most of your friends work in the jewish world and through talking about their jobs and their lives and supporting them in their public events… you’re still immersed. and you’re still hurting.
// tw antisemitism / shoah ment.
my sibling is currently being targeted by nazi hategroups on instagram. the guy orchestrating it went to school with us.
they’re filing for a restraining order, because this isn’t the first time he’s harrassed them. he’s been harassing both of us since may, calling us antisemetic slurs and bragging about being related to schutzstaffel officers.
i bring this up for one reason only: you all love jewish suffering when it benefits you. when it’s a weapon you can use, a comparison to draw. but you don’t love it when it’s in your face. when we’re loud about it. when we tell you antisemetism isnt dead.
well fuck that. it isnt dead. and if youre going to use my suffering, my family’s suffering, as a debate topic, then the least you can do is fucking listen to us when we talk to you about our issues.
antisemetism didn’t end with the holocaust. antisemetism didn’t start with the holocaust. it’s alive and well, and it’s been here for as long as we have existed.
jack and rose dawson are jewish. in this essay, i WILL
fav part of shabbat might be getting to see everyone’s challah posting 🥺 gives me a sense of togetherness
when that one person was like ‘if you ship chengxian you’re a firm believer in the inherent eroticism of constant arguing’ and like….i just HAD TO SIT MY JEWISH ASS DOWN. read for filth.
