New Diaspora Religion: Bagelism

Pure Judaism? Without the Land of Israel? Sorry, but that isn’t Judaism. It’s a new religion.

“There are so many things to see and to hear! Be quiet, pensive, and listen. Then you will see the Almighty who disguises Himself in the events which unfold in the world.”

So my dear friends, instead of impulsively reacting with angry comments, banning me from your Facebook groups, or deciding you aren’t going to read Fishman’s blogs anymore – be quiet, pensive, and listen. Then you too will see the Almighty who disguises Himself in the events which unfold in the world in the restoration of the Jewish People in Israel. Then you too will come to understand that in your practice of “Bagel Judaism,” something very important is missing.

About the Author: Tzvi Fishman was awarded the Israel Ministry of Education Prize for Creativity and Jewish Culture for his novel "Tevye in the Promised Land." For the past several years, he has written a popular and controversial blog at Arutz 7. A wide selection of his books are available at Amazon.

    Here's a nice letter I received from a FB friend:
    Just want you to know what a wonderful experience to read to your new book "Tevye in the Promised Land". It made me laugh and cry. Every page spoke to me in some way. I am now working on a book review to present at the next Shabbat gathering of a group of women in the neighborhood. It will be hard to compress into one hour all the funny and poignant moments from the book that I want to share with them.

    I now also read your blog, Felafel on Rye, on the Jewish Press Web site and have added most of your other books to my "book wish list".

    Our daughter and her family will be making aliyah this summer, G-d willing, and my husband and I hope to follow them after they are settled. On the rare occasions when I have doubts or concerns, I read your blogs, and it helps.

    Please keep on writing, and I'll keep reading!

  2. It's Amazing, it's geshmak, the bagels and cream cheese and the kugel is way better than the ones they have in Israel, it's very similar to Judaism, but I'm so sorry to tell you guys IT'S NOT THE REAL THING!

    Interesting blog. I dare not say more so that my talk backs don't deleted even though those talk backs were only Torah. In fact, unless my talkbacks are not reposted, this may be my last talk back.

    Interesting blog. Unless my previous deleted talk backs in previous blog are published, this is about all I'm going to say.
