What's up with Russian "Jews" & Xmas trees?
« on: May 22, 2019, 08:13:11 AM »
What kind of Jew puts a Xmas tree  in their home?
My family also came from the FSU & they all made sure that their sons had a bris,kept kosher& Jewish holy days & the idea of an Xmas tree was repulsive & repugnant to them.
They were Yiddish speaking Jews who were either religious or traditional.

Asherot are forbidden for Gentiles. They are certainly forbidden for Jews.

How much mutual intelligibility is there between Yiddish and German, in your opinion?

Asherot is Easter I believe & Xmas is the Saturnalias/Winter Solstice.

I meant the trees used for idolatry (an asherah). I never heard of Easter trees.

Easter is for the pagan goddess Ashtart

Ishtar. I know the gay Easter Bunny has to do with pagan Spring fertility rites. Did that involve Ashera trees?

Who said he did & only just wrote a song?
But in Israel to do so why?
