The purpose of this blog is to act as a fist to the face of the Jewish conscience and to jar Jews out of oblivion. It is a call to return to the Torah, to start the process of tshuvah gemura, and to rid the collective body of the infectious "shtetl syndrome". The Jewish Fist is also a warning to the enemies of the Almighty, whether it be the Arab Amalakites, or the mixed multitude within. The Jewish Fist has risen, and when it descends, G-d help you!
" Thou comest to me with a sword and a spear and a shield, but I come to thee in the name of the L-rd of Hosts, the G-d of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast humiliated..." (I Samuel, 17:45-47)
We are about to celebrate the festival of Shavuot, which marks an unprecedented event in world history. The entire Jewish nation witnessed the mass revelation of the divine Torah on Mount Sinai, a claim that no other religion would dare to make. This revelation was passed down for thousands of years with the conviction that only a truly historical event could generate. With the Torah comes the awesome responsibility to follow it in entirety.
All of it.
The laws of erev, Shabbat, brit milah, mikvah, lulav and etrog, along with the the provocative mitzvot that make certain Jews uncomfortable. Such as the commandment to burn down an Ir Hanidachat (idolatrous town),andthe obligation to carry out the brutal laws of Jewish warfare (during an obligatory war) which leave no citizens alive. Torah doesn't come in slices. You need the take the whole pie. On the day that the Jewish nation accepts the entire Torah without distorting or corrupting it, we will ensure the coming of the true Messiah in our times.
