Texas Christians Protest Chabad’s Hanukkah

For Immediate Release

Frisco, Texas, December 16, 2014  Friends of Michael Hoffman, a scholar who has written extensively on the dark side of Judaism, held a demonstration on Hanukkah Eve at a Chabad Lubavitch menorah lighting event and at the home of a prominent Chabad rabbi.

Chabad-Lubvitch is the most politically connected, wealthy and powerful Orthodox Judaic group in America, often consulted by Presidents and “family values” Republican politicians and office-holders. Chabad is a radical Zionist group which termed Baruch Goldstein, the mass murderer of 40 Palestinians, a “Tzaddik” (saint). In the Tanya, Chabad’s canonical text, all gentiles are declared to be super-abundant trash. This is Chabad’s view of Arab people in particular.

The American media consistently report on Chabad in the most cosmetic and friendly terms; seldom giving any hint of its racism and hatred.

Concerning Hanukkah, Hoffman says, “It’s a Talmudic festival of Judaic self-worship presented as a Biblical commemoration of the Maccabees. John 10:22-23 refers to the Feast of the Dedication which celebrates the rededication of the Israelite temple in December 164 B.C., after its desecration by the pagan ruler Antiochus.” According to Hoffman, “1 Macc. 1:41-59 shows that, like the rabbis of our time, King Antiochus forbade the true worship of Yahweh and the correct use of the Scriptures. The attendance of Jesus at the Feast of the Dedication in no way implicated him in the perverted Talmudic Hanukkah, which came centuries later and which is dedicated to Judaic idolatry of themselves in defiance of Yahweh. Judaism mimics the religion of the Bible. It has a Moses, a Noah, and an 8 day festival. But these are not the Biblical Moses or Noah or 8 day festival,” Hoffman concluded. 

At Chabad’s “giant menorah lighting” staged Dec. 16 at the Frisco Heritage Center, local Christian activist Mickey Henry and associates distributed flyers on the true nature of Orthodox Judaism, contrary to the fantasies about Judaism promulgated by Protestant fundamentalists, neocon Catholics and the corporate media. Mr. Henry reports that “Judaics from all over the Dallas metroplex were there.” He and his group also “distributed the flyer to 24 houses on the rabbi’s street, including the rabbi’s...house itself.”

The media were contacted concerning the protest but complete suppression of all news concerning the counter-event seems to be the order of the day. Mr. Hoffman stated, “It is essential to the Talmudic power structure in the U.S. that news of a Christian educational movement to tell the truth about Judaism and its Hanukkah should be censored, lest it grow by leaps and bounds. May God richly bless Mickey Henry and his cohort. I hope many other Christians throughout our nation will emulate his fine example.”

The flyer disseminated by Henry’s group is available as a pdf file for copying and distribution  see this link. It also reproduced below.

 Does the Talmud Agree with Moses? 

Alexander McCaul, in his book The Talmud Tested (alternative title, The Old Paths), answered this question with a resounding, “No!” McCaul examined 40-odd topics, comparing the teachings of Moses with the teachings of the rabbis. In each case, he found the rabbis to be at odds with the authoritative written Torah of G-d. He then compared the teaching of the Christian New Testament on these same topics and found total agreement. 

Christianity, properly understood, does not do away with the Law of Moses (see Greg Bahnsen’s Theonomy in Christian Ethics). Through the grace and righteousness applied to us through the sacrifice of the True Passover Lamb, Jesus the Messiah, the Law’s just punishment for sin has been satisfied. But the Law of Moses still applies as the rule of life for all Christians (see R.J. Rushdoony’s The Institutes of Biblical Law). Just as McCaul made clear, the New Testament is the correct expositor of Moses! 

The prophet Isaiah foretold that Messiah must suffer for our sins: 

Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. ~ Isaiah 53:4-6 

The most famous student of Rabbi Gamaliel proclaimed this good news to the Jews of his day: 

“And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers, that G-d has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘YOU ARE MY SON; TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.’

As for the fact that He raised Him up from the dead, no longer to return to decay, He has spoken in this way: ‘I WILL GIVE YOU THE HOLY and SURE blessings OF DAVID.’ “Therefore He also says in another Psalm, ‘YOU WILL NOT ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO UNDERGO DECAY.’ 

“For David, after he had served the purpose of G-d in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay; but He whom G-d raised did not undergo decay. “Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses. “Therefore take heed, so that the thing spoken of in the Prophets may not come upon you: 

‘BEHOLD, YOU SCOFFERS, AND MARVEL, AND PERISH; FOR I AM ACCOMPLISHING A WORK IN YOUR DAYS, A WORK WHICH YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE, THOUGH SOMEONE SHOULD DESCRIBE IT TO YOU.’” ~ Acts 13:32-41 We share this Good News with you out of a concern for your souls and a genuine desire to glorify  God. As Michael Hoffman has shown in his book, Judaism’s Strange Gods, the Talmud repeatedly blasphemes Jesus the Messiah, calling Him the idolatrous (Sotah 47a, Sanhedrin 107b) bastard son (Kallah 51a) of a whore (Sanhedrin 106a) who practiced sorcery (Sanhedrin 43a) and is currently boiling in excrement (Gittin 57a), and treats Gentiles as refuse (Kerithoth 6b, Yebamoth 98a, Sanhedrin 58b, etc.). In spite of this, we reach out to you, desiring that you should bring glory to G-d in belief and action. Isaiah taught that Messiah would be a light to the Gentiles (Isaiah 11:10, 42:6, and 49:6). We beg you, share in that light with us: set aside Talmudic blasphemies against Jesus the Messiah, repent and trust in Him for the remission of your sins, and live life in submission to His Lordship through His Law.

Dear Mr. Hoffman,

Thanks for your blog and the books you write. Some years ago you wrote a review about a secular book concerning the repression of Catholics in England. It had a red cover but cannot recall the title or the author. If you remember this book could you kindly reply below?

Thanks, CMJ

Dear CMJ

It might have been a book by Eamon Duffy but without more to go on I really can’t say.
