I started this thread to serve as a place to report all of the weirdo shit that Fake Jew fundies have come up with for Passover this year. Unfortunately, some of our more prominent bloggers in this area have shut down their blogs or are blogging infrequently, but there is still stuff out there. For example, this little tidbit from Messianic Keepers at Home: Wow. I don't think even ultra-Orthodox Jews have come up with a deep mystical meaning for the tiny holes in store-bought matzah. And it can't/doesn't represent something just because you say so. The only thing the "piercings" represent are the drying process. After the holiday, there will probably be tons of comments of ways that they've (inappropriately) incorporated symbols of slavery and servitude into the seder, like eating while standing up and washing the headship's feet.
From the latest issue of Torah Family E-magazine, I'll just cover the highlights. http://freepdfhosting.com/4b64bdc371.pdf Always good to traumatize the kids early. For families that actually keep kosher for Passover, this isn't really "fun" so much as a necessity. What, they were too lazy to pick up some ram's blood on that trip to the farm? This makes no sense. How could the Hebrews spoil the Egyptians? They were slaves! This is the 2nd time I've seen FakeJews incorporate foot washing and servitude into the seder, and I'm really offended by that. The whole point of Passover is to celebrate our freedom from slavery, and a lot of the rituals in the seder symbolize luxury (sitting with cushions, reclining while eating, dipping food). Trying to incorporate servant imagery shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the holiday. The barley harvest is associated with the holiday of Shavuot, 7 weeks later. Just because a shofar is Jewish, doesn't mean we use it for every single holiday.
