I love opinionated non-PC people. This blog is to vent my opinions on life, the universe and everything. Which is 42 which in gematria is "My Heart" (LBY) according to Rabbi Abulafia. The Divine Heart is the centre of everything.

A new Hebrew Catholic Havurah (Study group) has been started in the United States. It also has a wonderful new blog. This new group is called Miriam Mystical Rose Havurah in Indianapolis.
The lastest blog begins. "We want to thank everyone who attended our first Chanukah Party. We had about 17 crammed into our little townhouse and it was very cozy. In case you missed it here is what happened.
We began with the lighting of the Chanukah candles with the traditional blessings. The Chanukah Menorah is full of Messianic significance as you might expect. In John 8:12, Yeshua (Jesus) proclaimed himself the Light of the World. And the Menorah has one extra candle that is called the "shamash". This means servant. The servant candle is always lit first and all the other candles that we light daily for the eight days of Chanukah are lit by this candle. This is very much what happens in our journey of faith as Catholic Christians. It is the Messiah, Jesus who came to serve us and to light our way in this life and to heaven. It is His light that lights our path through the darkness in our lives and the world so that the Church and all of us have the Light of Life..."

This group is led by Gershon ben Shaul who writes "I am a Hebrew Catholic living in the Indianapolis area. I am married with one son and one grandson. I am currently enrolled in the Ecclesial Lay Ministry certificate program in the Diocese of Lafayete in Indiana. I love my heritage since it is the heritage of our Lord and Messiah, Yeshua and our Blessed Mother, Miriam. I love my Church since this is the Church of the first Jewish apostles and the Church that Yeshua left for us and all the nations."
