My Mom Gave me a Jewish Prayer Shawl...
« on: February 04, 2013, 07:38:59 PM »
My mother recently returned from Israel where she saw such sites as the Church of the Nativity, Church of The Holy Sepulchre, and some other interesting things. She brought my wife back a nice cashmere head scarf, and she brought me back and icon of St. George and a Jewish prayer shawl (legitimately kosher) .

I have no clue what to do with the prayer shawl. I'm not going to use it and I don't really want to re-gift it as I don't know many Jewish people, and I don't want to just stick it in the closet... So what do I do?

FYI, my mother is not Orthodox, but I did ask her to see some Orthodox sites for me.

See if there's a synagogue in the phone book. Offer to donate it to them.

Or put it in a case and hang it on your wall.

I know, kind of the joke I was going for...

PM me with the particulars if you would be willing to take  the tallit.  I have no clue as to how many icons are worth one tallit or vice versa...

You could hang it over an icon. Tallitot look quite similar to the icon scarves used by Ukrainians.

Another possibility...
I was wondering if I could use it as a cloth for the shelf in my icon corner, or if there were some other purpose I could find for it.

You could always drape the prayer shawl over the top and sides of the icon that she gave you.
That will help to keep the dust off the icon.

That would be a bit over kill, the icon is quite small...

(A) It could be used to drape a bigger ikon, or it could be used as a "tablecloth" to put similar items on. If it is too big for something, you can fold it.

(B) Don't Ethiopian Christian women wear veils that are like tallit? I think I have seen them. In that case you could mail it to an Ethiopian church.

The Ethiopian women at my parish wear shawls, but they're usually solid while unlike the Google images that come up for "tallit."

I'd suggest either trading it with Tallitot or donating it to a synagogue--either way, someone will get some proper, legitimate, and respectful use out of it.  Doing so is in no way disrespectful to your mother.  If you're concerned about that, perhaps tell her what you plan to do with it and seek her blessing to do so.

Ethiopian Christian men and women wear prayer veils which are different from Jewish talliot. You probably saw an Ethiopian Jew wearing talliot.

Good night!  It was a gift from your mother.  Put it somewhere nice in the house.

It's not like it has demons spilling out of it.

Of course not, its kosher   :P

The question then is where to put it in the house. I believe enough people have weighed in that I can comfortably make a decision.

Yea, Rabbeinu Shaul - a Pharisee - would carefully pack his talit, tzitzit and tfilin on all his trips. In Philippi, when he was thrown in jail with Silas, their chains miraculously fell off so they could put on tfilin. When he was in escorted to Rome in chains, he'd ask the Roman guards to help him put them on for prayer. And after the shipwreck on Malta, an angel recovered them for him from the bottom of the sea! 

(He also wore payot, a shtreimel, and owned about a dozen kippas - he'd use blue ones for the Feasts of Our Lady, a white one for Pesach, a red one for Shavuot/Pentecost, and so on.)

Jesus and the Apostles were Jewish. I am not. But I did give it some thought.

A while back when I was still trying to figure a lot of things out I toyed with the idea of Judaism. I didn't want to give up believing in Jesus so I guess I was kind of leaning Messianic (with out realizing that they were there own separate entity/denomination, I just thought they were Jews who accepted Christ). I was really looking for the more traditional Church and Judaism really appealed to me.

When I was in training for the Army I often went to the Jewish services with one of my buddies (who was Jewish) more than I went to Christian services. I really liked the Shabatt services and I gave much thought to going that route. I even picked up a little black yarmulke when I went to those services and a Jewish prayer book (I have since misplaced the yarmulke).

Long story short, I ended up Orthodox Christian instead of Orthodox Jew...

You can do both. I celebrate Passover and use a Talit and I am fully Orthodox! You will be surprised how much more you will understand about Orthodoxy through Jewish eyes!

This is actually a good example. Orthodox churches usually decorate in green on Pentecost. This is actually a Jewish tradition on Shavuot.

Yeshua, all the Apostles and ALL of the Eastern churches celebrated Passover. It is FULLY Orthodox. In fact Pascha means Passover...not "easter"...

See how much you do not understand because you have closed eyes and ears! Passover is when Yeshua gave us the command to do this in remembrance of Him.  The Feast of First fruits is when Yeshua rose from the dead 3 days later when our High Priest Yeshua waved the wave sheaf offering for His Father to accept!

Not recognizing the separation of Christianity from Judaism is to not recognize the difference between being a Christian and being a Jew.

You are not an Orthodox Jew or an Orthodox Christian. There is no six of one and half dozen of the other.

Sorry. I really doubt St. Paul went about in a European Polish or Hungarian Hasidic hat.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

You can do both. I celebrate Passover and use a Talit and I am fully Orthodox! You will be surprised how much more you will understand about Orthodoxy through Jewish eyes!  

The only Passover that Orthodox Christians should celebrate is of the Resurrection of the Lord. The shadow of the Law has passed away ...

Yeshua, all the Apostles and ALL of the Eastern churches celebrated Passover. It is FULLY Orthodox. In fact Pascha means Passover...not "easter"...

See how much you do not understand because you have closed eyes and ears! Passover is when Yeshua gave us the command to do this in remembrance of Him.  The Feast of First fruits is when Yeshua rose from the dead 3 days later when our High Priest Yeshua waved the wave sheaf offering for His Father to accept!  

 :o

Not recognizing the separation of Christianity from Judaism is to not recognize the difference between being a Christian and being a Jew.

You are not an Orthodox Jew or an Orthodox Christian. There is no six of one and half dozen of the other.

Sorry. I really doubt St. Paul went about in a European Polish or Hungarian Hasidic hat.

I AM an Orthodox Christian and you have NO authority to claim otherwise! Do you consider Yeshua, all His Apostles as well as all of the early Eastern Churches Orthodox? If yes, then I am too. If no, then it is YOU that are not Orthodox!

If they hear not Moshe and the Nevi'im, neither will they be persuaded by one that rose from the dead.

Yeshua Ha Derekh, in what sense are you a Jew? Are you from a practicing Jewish family? Did you convert through years of study and the rite of circumcision?

Trying to get a little background here.

What does that matter? Are my words not enough for you to judge on? I am Orthodox.

Christianity is not Judaism. Judaism is not Christianity. If you were baptized Orthodox but you are now in a Christian "messianic Jewish" sect, that is all it is.

St. Paul did not wear a shtreimel. They are 1700s-era European hats. Little late, you see.

Go into any actual Orthodox Jewish synagogue and try this again. See what they say.

You don't even pass the laugh test.

Oh, by the way, are you Alfred Persson? He is the only one who used phrases such as "pre-100 A.D. Orthodox" when he was here. And he was making it up, too. There is no such thing. The Orthodox Church was not founded in 100 A.D. It was founded by Christ on Pentecost.

You can't make yourself Orthodox Christian just by saying so. The Orthodox Church is a recognized physical fact. It is not something you meld by sticking the word "orthodox," meaning traditional or formal, to the word "Christian," meaning "whatever you want."

No dice.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Why did you pick year 100?  What happened to you that caused you to take this stance?
