Modern Golden Calf Arrived and, Thank God, Left Israel

In Moses’ absence, the Israelites melted their earrings and “Out came a golden calf.” Is there an excuse for exalting the FIFA golden Trophy?

‘”Oh my God, there is THE trophy. Oh, someone help me, I am shaking all over. It can’t be. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh –  THE cup itself. God really does exist.”

Or maybe a god.

The same website quoted as member of Israel’s soccer team from the 1970s as saying, “The fact that the trophy arrived in Israel is both exciting and important,” Shum said Sunday. “It raises memories from the past.”

Yes, but the wrong memories from the past.

“You shall have no other gods before me.”

  1. Those who scoff will ask what the H difference does it make if a Kohen marries a divorcee. Let’s forget the explanations because the bottom line is that is what the Jewish Law states. Period
    Scoff.
