The Passover Cover Story For Goys vs. The Real Deal

April 24, 2008

The “secular” ADL writes:

Thousands Reached Through Interfaith Seders in 2008

Posted: April 8, 2008

In the weeks leading up to Passover, thousands of people from diverse faiths and ethnic backgrounds came together in different parts of the country to celebrate the Jewish tradition of the Passover Seder in events sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League.

The Passover holiday commemorates the deliverance from Egyptian bondage as the beginning of national history and the time of the barley season, remembrance of the relationship of Israel with the land.

In a longstanding tradition of furthering intergroup understanding, ADL brings together communities of differing faiths and ethnic backgrounds with Jews to learn about and celebrate the universal values and themes in the story of Passover: liberation from slavery, freedom from political oppression, the obligation to remember and teach about our heritage …

blah, blah, blah …

Haven’t we heard enough “Passover” blather for Goys? What information do Judaic scholars share regarding the Orthodox Judaic “Passover” amongst themselves? What do Judaic scholars say regarding “Passover” that is not intended for seder-celebrating Goys to know?

Professor of Jewish History and Academic Head of the Scholion-Interdisciplinary Research Center in Jewish Studies at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel Jacob Yuval writes:

Another ritual involving cursing the Gentiles is the famous custom of reciting “Pour Out Thy Wrath” (Shefokh hamatkha) at the Passover seder … It’s earliest mention appears in Mahzor Vitry … This section of the [Passover] Haggadah is understood by the participants as closely connected with the future Redemption. Opening the door to the prophet Elijah in tandem with the prayer for vengeance signifies a connection between vengeance against the Gentiles and the appearance of the Messiah. It should also be noted that this section of the Haggadah is recited as an introduction to the fourth and last cup of wine, the cup of deliverance …

Professor Yuval states that the Judaic convert to Christianity, Antonius Margarita exposed this hateful Judaic tradition, and the fact that it applied specifically to Christians, in the 16th century. Yuval continues:

The messianic content of “Pour Out Thy Wrath” was illustrated in illuminated Ashkenazic Haggadot through pictures depicting the Messiah riding on a donkey with Elijah by his side, proclaiming his coming. [Antonius] Margarita … relates the popular Jewish exegesis of the Messiah’s donkey …

I think that I myself sincerely believed the lies told below. Blessed be God and the Holy Spirit, who saved me from such and other errors. According to the lies of the Jews, when the Messiah comes he will ride upon an ass and seat all Jews upon the ass, while all Christians will sit on the ass’s tail. Then the Messiah will ride with all his passengers into the sea, and when he comes to the depths of the sea, the donkey will drop its tail and all the Christians will fall into the sea and drown. And indeed, this will have to be a very big ass. But an even bigger ass is a person who believes such things! (Antonius Margarita, Ein kurner Bericht und Anzaigung [Wien, 1541], fol. IIv).

Once again we find vengeance against the [Christians] at the very heart of the messianic process. (Israel Jacob Yuval, Two Nations in Your Womb, pp.123-125, University of California Press, 2006)

Cardinal Seán Patrick O’Malley at ADL Seder

March 28, 2007

Cardinal Seán Patrick O’Malley of Boston has an online blog. There he states:

On Thursday evening I participated in the Anti-Defamation League’s “Nation of Immigrants” Community Seder that took place at The Castle at Park Plaza in Boston.

Last year I gave a speech to the Jewish community in which I told them about a Seder meal that I organized in Washington with the Hispanic Community many years ago. In response to my talk, this year the ADL has organized a multicultural Seder inviting many ethnic and religious groups. Andrew Tarsy, ADL regional director and Diane Rosenbaum, Senior Associate Director did a wonderful job organizing the event. It was a lovely evening.

Cardinal Seán Patrick O’Malley of Boston announcing that Benedict XVI has named Rabbi Leon Klenicki of the ADL to the Papal Order of St. Gregory

“… just as it would be a mortal sin now for anyone, in making a profession of faith, to say that Christ is yet to be born, which the fathers of old said devoutly and truthfully; so too it would be a mortal sin now to observe those ceremonies which the fathers of old fulfilled with devotion and fidelity.” (St. Thomas, Summa Theologica I, II, q. 103, Art. 4)

(8) Let me also say this to those who are our own-if I must call our own those who side with the Jews. Go to the synagogues and see if the Jews have changed their fast; see if they kept the pre-Paschal fast with us; see if they have taken food on that day. But theirs is not a fast; it is a transgression of the law, it is a sin, it is trespassing. Yet they did not change. But you did change your glory and from it you will derive no profit; you did go over to their rites.

(9) Did the Jews ever observe our pre-Paschal fast? Did they ever join us in keeping the feast of the martyrs? Did they ever share with us the day of the Epiphanies? They do not run to the truth, but you rush to transgression. I call it a transgression because their observances do not occur at the proper time. Once there was a proper time when they had to follow those observances, but now there is not. That is why what was once according to the Law is now opposed to it. (St. John Chrysostom, Homily IV, Against the Jews and the Trumpets of their Pasch)

However condemning these words from two Doctors of the Church may be, they don’t fully exemplify the magnitude of the offense. These Seders taking place in so many Catholic parishes are not the same Passover ceremony celebrated by Christ as it is dishonestly claimed. These ceremonies are a counterfeit, like everything in rabbinic Judaism. There are Talmudic benedictions and rituals in these Seders which were formulated after Christ and therefore have no place in the Biblical tradition, before or after Christ. These Seders incorporate ritual which was formulated by rabbis of a “religion” founded upon the rejection of Jesus Christ. It would be less offensive to bring Hindu rituals into the Church for at least Hinduism isn’t based in conscious rejection of Christ.

Since the late 1960’s, every Lent, naive Catholics all around the world have been hoodwinked into “celebrating Passover like Jesus did” by reciting Talmudic benedictions and engaging in Talmudic ritual from the rabbinic tradition which Christ condemned as the “tradition of the elders” which “makes God’s Word of no effect.”

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sez: “Seders arranged at or in cooperation with local synagogues are encouraged.”
