Everything You Never Knew About Jerusalem

Jewess Blog

Jerusalem is the eternal dichotomy. It is the embodiment of the holy and profane; the religious and secular. The two coexist side by side, just as in Judaism itself for over two thousand years. Yet Jerusalem is not known for it’s secular culture in the diaspora.

It is a slow and steady current that runs through the city streets.

To experience it is to believe in it.

Within Israel itself, many Israelis see Jerusalem as a place for the religious and Tel Aviv as a place for the secular. The rest of the world has also promulgated this notion. I find myself face to face with the reality of what Jerusalem is in actuality. We do not have to look far to see that this is not unique or new in any way. Our roots as living with a secular component are consistent in our history.

George Orwell described a futuristic world where government (Big Brother in his novel, “1984”) chose to define “truth” rather than telling the truth. 

In Orwell’s “1984”, public expectations from government underwent a transformation making what was once reprehensible into actions that are perfectly acceptable by simply redefining what “words” meant.  If you haven’t yet read Orwell’s “1984”, you owe it to yourself to spend an hour with it.  It turns out that what Orwell was writing about in this fiction novel would turn into standard operating procedure by Liberal governments in Ottawa and in Queen’s Park (Ontario).  Orwell described how the public was convinced to change expectations by simply adapting the government’s (Big Brother’s) revised definitions of a word.  Orwell coined the term “Newspeak” for the way Big Brother (government) went about changing bad into good by simply redefining words.

Redemption ~ Brampton

St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in downtown Brampton is a partner in feeding the hungry via a weekly food cupboard. The clients can be ones who benefit of thus program during transitions; i.e.: back to job, back to community after release from prison while others rely on the program for viability.
One can drop by on a Wednesday 11:00 to 14:30 and check the drive and the clients.

The church is located on 44 Church Street East in downtown Brampton.

memorial redemption.jpgIt says somewhere that abject poverty has no place in a modern city such as Brampton, Ontario.

But, they are so wrong; very wrong.

Call it a shadow.  But this reality is substantive. It has human shape and is made up of dreams that have been deferred but are certainly too hard to forget.  Lost dreams such as these linger and ought not to be rationalized or explained away.

A very wise old Elder once reminded me that an axle needs only one half a rotation in order to bring the top of any wheel to its lowest place.  Faith in each other brings about hopes that each wheel will continue to rotate and that “redemption” can take place.

An  ancient looking Baptist Church stands at the corner of Wellington Street and Main Street just a stone’s throw from Brampton’s “Four Corners”.  This humble church stands; juxtaposed to Brampton’s City…
