  • Purim and Lent: Haman Hung, Christ Crucified

    Jews celebrating PurimPurim is a day of ecstatic rejoicing, which the Jews celebrate as both a sign of G-d’s enduring love and a promise of their final salvation.

  • The Jewish Holidays, Holy Week & the Ascension

    Rosh HashanahThe four holidays of this coming holiday season correspond to the events of Holy Week and the Ascension. They are a figure of the great salvific events which mark the last days of Jesus’ human presence in this world.  The Christian Jew participates in those saving events, and immerses himself in the Christian mysteries of salvation as he celebrates the Jewish holidays.
