  • Saint Mary's Orthodox Jews
    Thursday, October 15, 2020
    There are two main sects of ultra Orthodox Jews in New York. One is called "the Lubavitchers." The other is called "the Satmars." Both groups wear beards, dark coats, and dark hats, and strictly follow the Law of Moses, as interpreted through their rabbis and rabbinic traditions. The Satmars are more shrouded in mystery than the Lubavitchers. Even their name -'Satmar' ... what does it mean? There's controversy concerning it. But it appears to have come from a place in eastern Europe where the group originated. And what does it mean? Apparently, it means, 'Saint Mary' - as in the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, Yeshua. So you could translate their name as 'Saint Mary's Ultra Orthodox Jews." What does that show? It shows that Yeshua, Jesus is so great, so prevalent, and so universal... that even Orthodox Jews are named after His mother. Only one Jewish man has become the light of the Gentiles, the name above all names, the center of human history - on one else even comes close. He's number 1. Live a life that declares Him number one in everything.

    Today's Mission
    Put God first in all that you do today. Ask yourself, "what would the Messiah do", then do it with His help, in His name.
