Minchag is not a Hebrew word. Minhag is tradition in the sense of "something that people do regularly". Minhag also translates to "habit".

I get it. Minhag is the actual Hebrew word, not minchag

"nhg" means custom, or if used in the imperative - to lead

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.

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).

HughBe--- The xians who wrote the NT were JEWS.
Key word WERE.

They then became the earliest Christians.

Jews don't believe in JC. Religion 101.

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

As an aside, have you joined NAMLA yet?

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.

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?

Glad you did, and for helping me, since i've been googling in vain for 'nhg'.

From gardens to actually meaning law.
Like some elaborate game of hide and seek.

Just failing to see the connection.

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.

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.
