The Kaifeng Jews are members of a small Jewish community in Kaifeng, in the Henan province of China who have assimilated into Chinese society while preserving some Jewish traditions and customs. Their origin in Kaifeng is a matter of debate.. Kaifeng, then the capital of the Northern Song Dynasty, was a cosmopolitan city on a branch of the Silk Road. It is surmised that a small community of Jews, most likely from Persia or India, arrived either overland or by a sea route, and settled in the city. In 1163 they built a synagogue surrounded by a study hall, a ritual bath, a communal kitchen, a kosher butchering facility, and a sukkah. The synagogue, known as Temple of Purity and Goodness, was destroyed by fire and floods, and restored several times. After an 1852 flood it remained in ruins. It is difficult to estimate the number of Jews in China. The last census revealed about 400 official Jews in Kaifeng, now estimated at some 100 families totaling approximately 500 people. Up to 1,000 residents have ties to Jewish ancestry, though only 40 to 50 individuals partake in Jewish activities. Some descendants of Kaifeng's Jewish community say their parents and grandparents told them that they were Jewish and would one day "return to their land," others are only vaguely aware of their ancestry. Kaifeng Jews intermarried with local Chinese, and are thus indistinguishable in appearance from their non-Jewish neighbors.The one trait that differentiated them from their neighbors was not eating pork.After contact with Jewish tourists, some have reconnected to mainstream Jewry.

Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.
Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.
This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.
Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.
It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.
The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.
In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

If 2016 didn't start out good, Host Rev. Sue shares how to "reboot" and start all over again in time for the
Chinese New Year of The Fire Monkey by clearing your house and opening yourself up to infinite possibilities.
On tonight's version of Eleventh House Radio, we'll look into the Aquarian New Moon, and what it means for not just this month, but the rest of 2016, especially if we factor in the new, Chinese, Lunar New Year, aka "The Fire Monkey." We'll also look at Mars and it's trajectory over the next eight months as well. Along the way, we'll also have a look at the neural meltdown of one, Marco Rubio, who repeated the same line, over and over again in the last Republican debate, dubbing him with the dubious nickname, "Marcobot."

An Aquarius New Moon is about fresh starts and next chapters we can launch into with aspirations, friends, groups, the internet, astrology, charities, gatherings, our freedom, and original ideas and inventions. It's our big cosmic push over the next 2 weeks to seed ideas and motivate about these themes so that they may continue to grow over the year ahead. On the same day the Chinese New Year of the Monkey kicks in and begins to usher in themes related to this particular year that I will discuss with you on the show. In the middle of that we also have some very positive alignments occurring that should make you happy to be in this week. So tune in and see how your sign fares!

Answers to why seed royal are not getting blessed
It is correct that the Chinese and the Japanese human races on Earth are very young. If you calculate backward from the year 1990, they have only settled here on Earth 25,978 years ago, the time that denotes the final colonization on Earth. The background for the appearance of the Chinese and Japanese races is as follows: The two yellow races were created and lived in their original native land on the other side of the Milky Way - on the other side of the central sun of the galaxy, therefore. For this reason it is said that they came from the other side of the sun. Their native system was called the NISAN system, where they lived on planet KUDRA.

Pt2 RasTafari Sabbatical Rss#18 Mishpatim | Judgments #LionOfJudah @LOJSociety
Jeremiah 34:8-22, 33:25-26
New Testament Reading
Matthew 5:33-42; Matt 17:1-11
Portion Outline - PROPHETS
Jeremiah 34:8 | Treacherous Treatment of Slaves
Jeremiah 33:14 | The Righteous Branch and the Covenant with David
The eighteenth reading from the Torah is named Mishpatim (??????), which means “judgments.” The title comes from the first words of the first verse of the reading, which could be literally translated to say, “And these are the judgments which you will place before them” (Exodus 21:1). The first three chapters of this Torah portion deliver a legal code of laws and commandments that form a nucleus for the Torah’s laws. The last chapter tells the story of how the people of Israel consented to keep these laws and entered into a covenant relationship with God through a series of rituals conducted by Moses
What exactly is the Spiritual stance of the Black Panther Party? THE SON OF MAN TEMPLE was created by Huey P. Newton which had a purpose in the spiritual lives of the Panthers through the acceptance of all, but mandated no religious preference. It is stated as follows by Huey in the “STATEMENT OF PURPOSE”
“We have always hoped that we could establish a place in our community where hundreds of ideas could grow and flourish, where people could feel free to say and do the things that seemed most natural to them. The Son of Man Temple was created for that purpose, to serve in humankind’s development.
However, the place in which we come together to espresso our humanity is not a church in the most traditional sense. We do not practice a religion; we are not Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Moslem. We do not honor one God or one reverend. This does not mean that we negate any religion; we all have differing philosophies and jews of our world. We are all part of everything and it is a part of each of us.
Our belief is that every human being has the right to be free. We can all agree that we are not. Therefore, we come together to express our agreement on the belief every Sunday at the Son of Man Temple. It is a place where we can come to discover and learn. If we begin the week with this kind of unity and understanding, we can carry through each day our concern and an enthusiastic felling about our survival and our freedom.
The ways in which we express this agreement about our desire to break away from our common problems—oppression—may differ. Some of us might sing or dance about it, some of us might play music about it, or some of us might speak about various aspects of our problem. It does not matter what we do if it is done with sincerity and in our people’s interest." Huey P. Newton
