@Merry Andrew,
These Haiku are just wonderful.

The Israelis I've known did not understand or speak Yiddish. The Yiddish background is reflected in the speech of many American Jews.

My son the doctor
Bought me a fancy cell phone
Then forgets to call

Tuesdays it's Mah Jong,
Thursdays it's Bridge at the pool,
Playdates for old Jews

Oy vey, how I shvitz,
I'd like to pause menopause
Is there a remote?

Heart healthy diets
Are on hold for Passover,
Have some chopped liver

@Gala,
No lamb at last meal
He served his body and blood
The bread and the wine

Which had symbolized
The sin offering from God
His begotten Son

Or so say the Jewish disciples of Jesus the Jew. Jewish Haiku of the holiest season.

@glitterbag,
It certainly did
Just as the Old Testament
Changed over the years

For two thousand years
The church of Jesus the Jew
Has dominated.

@Gala,
Jesus was Jewish
Who gave his life for the Jews
And all who believe.

On Passover day
The Lord savior of the Jews
Was laid in his grave.

In three days he rose
And was seen by the many
In Jerusalem.

Moses and Eli
Spoke with him on the mountain
Eli is to come.

To prepare the way
For the savior of mankind
Which includes the Jews.

Praise be to the Lord
The descendant of Sarah
Abrahams sister.

@The Anointed,
Continued from the post above.

יא וַיֹּאמֶר, אַבְרָהָם, כִּי אָמַרְתִּי רַק אֵין-יִרְאַת אֱלֹהִים, בַּמָּקוֹם הַזֶּה; וַהֲרָגוּנִי, עַל-דְּבַר אִשְׁתִּי. 11 And
Abraham said: 'Because I thought: Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.
יב וְגַם-אָמְנָה, אֲחֹתִי בַת-אָבִי הִוא--אַךְ, לֹא בַת-אִמִּי; וַתְּהִי-לִי, לְאִשָּׁה. 12 And moreover she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and so she became my wife.
