No, it's minchag.
Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

Minchag is not a Hebrew word. Minhag is tradition in the sense of "something that people do regularly". Minhag also translates to "habit". Another Hebrew word for tradition is masoret, which is more general and includes all "minhagim".

The confusion with "minchag" might be because "chag" means holiday. Keeping the holidays means keeping "minagey chag" (traditions of the holiday).

Jews don't believe in JC. Religion 101.

What do you see as the difference between Jews and Christians? Anything at all?

Well, here is the rub. Since now that have you grasped the concept, pursuant to our lengthy previous conversations, it is time to move it up a notch.

Minhagim (plural of minhag) are actually part of Halacha (Jewish law - literally translated as "the way") too.

Jewish law consists of both mitzvot (commandments that derive directly from the text (bible)) and minhagim. Mitzvot are universally binding while minhagim are not.

HughBe--- I see that we are struggling to IDENTIFY a Hebrew word, professor. One would have thought that YOU a person who has very little use for English would at least be able to tell the difference between your natural tongue i.e. Hebrew and English.
although generally I have been avoiding you, I will drop in for a quick note.

We are using a bastardization of Hebrew here (i.e. Hebrew using English letters to approximate the phonetics of the Hebrew alphabet). So all types of misunderstandings abound here since there are all kinds of transliteration mistakes.

Give me the Hebrew with the actual Hebrew alphabet and I will not be mistaken. Unfortunately this is not possible with Topix.

I was absent for a few weeks at the end of Dec. Did Hugh ever get around to answering the question about Jesus' genealogy or is he hoping we forgot about it?

Of course not.

And it was a blessing in disguise (with due respect to your belief system), as I get to ignore Hughbe. As does Eric for the most part as well.

Worst fate on Topix (short of being banned) is to be ignored.

Chicken and the egg isn't even up for debate. Eggs predate birds on the evolutionary chain by millions of years.
rabbee: oh you believe in, that scientific myth from your scientific g-ds?

when TheTorah is most specific, that G-D made the chicken first, then divided them into rooster and hen, to give with seed and egg.

and every time G-D gives the whole seven day Torah Cycle, it is always precisely 6818 man years long. and this time again in TheTorah, shall also precisely be 6818 man years.

The G-D of only and always TheTorah, does not ever lie. no matter how many scientific liars you have, as the enemy of G-D saying otherwise.

rabbee: there is no vowel i in eevreet, so it is not even a legal eevreet word. neither is the german word hebrew eevreet, there is no english w sound in eevreet. as in german the w, is pronounced like the english and eevreet v. so it should be a minimum written as hebrev in english to be more correct. without mention that some people, do not know the eevreet bet from vet.

Au contraire, the image of "Santa" -- a Saint -- has been around for a long time. He's been part of the Xtian rebranding of Saturnalia since 1600 or befor (I'm pretty sure that even predates the Coca Cola Corporation -- citation needed).
St Nicholas, Sinterklaas, Tomte, Father Xmas ... all incarnation of the same person. Like Doctor Who with a sleigh instead of a TARDIS.
The good folks at Coca Cola have been using his image since the '20s and have probably done more to canonize his image as the morbidly obese, flamboyantly dressed, elf molester that we have come to know and love. But, they didn't invent him or his likeness.
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

I actually knew that, but I was focused on the popular image as promulgated by the CCC. Not sure, but I think that the earliest version goes back to somewhere around the 6th century or so.

HughBe--- The xians who wrote the NT were JEWS.

Former---Key word WERE.

HughBe--- Correct in terms of being able to IDENTIFY one of the key words. You are incorrect in terms of your UNDERSTANDING of how the word was used. Let me explain it to you. WERE was used because because they are ARE dead.

Former----They then became the earliest Christians.

HughBe-- Correct as they followed their Jewish Messiah.

Former---Jews don't believe in JC. Religion 101.

HughBe--- What a DUNCE you are. Did you not understand what was said above? NO. Jews BELIEVED in Jesus the Jew.

Former---What do you see as the difference between Jews and Christians? Anything at all?

HughBe--- RACE. The RACE called Jews are BIOLOGICAL relatives and they can believe anything and their beliefs will NEVER change their ANCESTRY. Study it as clearly you are a VICTIM of the LIES and DECEPTION of rabbis.

Former---As an aside, have you joined NAMLA yet?

HughBe--- I am not a club member. In any event I would not fit in unlike you.

Winter Does Not Disprove Global Warming
http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_scie...
1. Statements about climate trends must be based on, er, trends. Not individual events or occurrences. Weather is not climate, and anecdotes are not statistics.
2. Global warming is actually expected to increase heavy precipitation in winter storms, and for the Northern Hemisphere, there is evidence that these storms are already more frequent and intense, according to the draft U.S. National Climate Assessment.
3. Antarctica is a very cold place. But global warming is affecting it as predicted: Antarctica is losing ice overall, according to the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. However, sea ice is a different matter than land-based or glacial ice. Antarctic sea ice is increasing, and moreover, the reason for this may be climate change!(For more, read here.)
Finally, just one last thing: When its winter on Earth, its also summer on Earth ... somewhere else. Thus, allow us to counter anecdotal evidence about cold weather with more anecdotal evidence: Its blazing hot in Australia, with temperatures in some regions set to possibly soar above 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the coming days.
Anecdotal evidence: So Cal is experiencing summer like weather this week, with temps in the 80's.

The better evidence for climate change is the fact that we are experiencing a couple of wildfires in the hills, in the middle of what SHOULD be the rainy season. The hills are summer brown rather than winter green.

Former dear, I shall ask you to explain a few passages for me on the topic of Just who is a Jew. If you cannot explain the passages, which will expose the LIES and the DECEPTION of the rabbis, get the BRIGHTEST of the SAGES of Judaism to do so or to engage me on this forum.

The DECEPTION and enslavement must END.

Absolutely right. There is a custom to write G-d in English, but no halachic requirement. Particularly on an electronic medium which can't be physically desecrated.
