Comment on Black Jews from Across the Globe Gather to Discuss our Heritage by Carrina Frasier

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 14:09:03 +0000

@Barajas...that is not true. You really do not know because you never walked this walk. Black Jews...we are the invisible ones. My great-gr-gr Grandmother was Fannie Frasier. She was Sephardic. Her family came to America from the Iberian Peninsula, when the Jews were given a choice to either convert to Christianity, die, or leave. My ancestors left. My gr-gr-gr-gr Grandmother was bought by my ancestors. My gr-gr-gr Grandmother was born. I still have some of their features. Having been teased with things like my nose is like an arrow, or my 'afro' that was a mixture of afro and curls...a jew fro. But they didn't know my Jewish background. Many assumed my Mother was part Native American...nope...an invisible Jew. From my youth, I could not understand why it seemed G-d loved me dearly, favored me, set me apart from others...I felt special to G-d. I KNEW I was. But at the time, I didn't even know I had Jewish blood...until the DNA test I took told me. I have African American on my information. But I am an Invisible Jew. At least to the world. But not to G-d. I wasn't invisible to Him. He knows those who are His. I am Messianic. But that further alienates me from connecting with the Jewish community as a whole. It's okay...and not okay. We are divided and that sucks.

My Mother is from Casablanca, Morocco; when she tried to enroll me in a Hillel Jewish Day School, she was told she couldn't be Jewish, since she didn't look, speak or act like them. Her father was a Rabbi, yet She was still obliged to explain her Jewish customs to try to convince them of her Jewishness. This was many many decades ago, hopefully they've "Come up for air" as my Mom always said.

Black Jews love Judaism, but for african-americans Jews they connect being Jewish to Africa, and that is not true. Most orthodox Jews won't accept black Jews because they still bring in some pagan practices not allowed in the synagogue service. Jews do have a physical appearance, they have the middle eastern appearance, like africans have the african appearance, europeans have the european look. So in some sense as a Gentile, I don't feel that black Jews are converting for the right reasons. First of all, they want to convert, because some of them have Jewish blood, or because they just want to be saved and show off the world that they can speak Hebrew and be better than other people. There only interest is to get recognized, and not truly be spiritual like the great Rabbis, like the Vilna Goan, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, or like the Alter Rebbe these are true Jews who have reached great spiritual heights.
