New Year's ... Sylvester Same'ach??

If you thought the Sylvester in my title was a cat you would be wrong ..... Sylvester is the Germanic name for the Goyische Holiday of New Year's Eve!!!  Why is it thus called?  Who was Sylvester??

Sylvester is the German name for New Year's Eve  owing to the fourth century roman pope Sylvester I who arranged for the passage of a host of viciously anti-Semitic legislation during the Council of Nicaea (325 CE), and who convinced Constantine to prohibit Jews from living in Jerusalem.   Sylvester was pope from January 31st, 314 CE to December 31st, 335 CE.  He was  made a saint by the catholic church for his anti semitic activities and his "Saint’s Day" is the day he was buried,  December 31st Saint Sylvester Day!   All catholic “Saints” are awarded a day on which chrstians celebrate and pay tribute to that saint’s memory.   And,  the civil new year is ushered in on “Sylvester Nacht”  hence chrstian celebrations on the night of December 31st are dedicated to Sylvester’s memory.   A 'feast' night of drinking,  making merry and killing Jews.   But, why does Israel also term NYE as Sylvester's Night???

A couple of years ago I listened to Rabbi Lawrence Kelemen's research Shuir on this issue.  It is incisive & will blow you away .....  The Real Story of Xmas & New Years!!!!     I'm reproducing a few of his major points below ~ it will blow you away!!!

In 46 B.C.E. the Roman emperor Julius Caesar first established January 1st as New Year’s day. Janus was the Roman gd of doors and gates, and had two faces, one looking forward and one back.  Caesar felt that the month named after this gd (“January”) would be the appropriate “door” to the year.  Caesar celebrated the first January 1st New Year by ordering the violent routing of revolutionary Jewish forces in the Galilee.  Eyewitnesses say blood flowed in the streets.  In later years, Roman pagans observed the New Year by engaging in drunken orgies  ~ a ritual they believed constituted a personal re-enacting of the chaotic world that existed before the cosmos was ordered by the gds.  As xtianity spread, pagan holidays were either incorporated into the xtian calendar or abandoned altogether.  By the early medieval period most of 'Holy' chrstian Europe regarded Annunciation Day (March 25th) as the beginning of the year.  (According to catholic tradition,  Annunciation Day commemorates the Malakh Gavriel’s announcement to 'Mary' that she would be impregnated by G*d ~ a purely pagan notion ~ and conceive a son to be called jsus.)

After William the Conqueror (AKA “William the Bastard” and “William of Normandy”) became King of England on December 25th, 1066,  he decreed that the English return to the date established by the Roman pagans, January 1st as the proper New Year date.  This move ensured that the commemoration of jsus’ birthday (December 25th) would align with William’s coronation, and the commemoration of jsus’ circumcision supposedly done on January 1st. It would start the new year - thus rooting the English and xstian calendars and his own Coronation!!!!  William’s innovation was eventually rejected after his death, and England rejoined the rest of the xtian world and returned to celebrating New Years Day on March 25th for a period.

    About five hundred years later, in 1582CE, pope Gregory XIII (AKA “Ugo Boncompagni”, 1502-1585) abandoned the traditional Julian calendar.  By the Julian reckoning, the solar year comprised 365.25 days, and the intercalation of a “leap day” every four years was intended to maintain correspondence between the calendar and the seasons.  Really, however there was a slight inaccuracy in the Julian measurement (the solar year is actually 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds = 365.2422 days).  This slight inaccuracy caused the Julian calendar to slip behind the seasons about one day per century.  Although this regression had amounted to 14 days by pope Gregory’s time, he based his reform on restoration of the vernal equinox, then falling on March 11th, to the date had 1,257 years earlier when Council of Nicaea was convened (March 21st 325 CE.).  pope Gregory made the correction by advancing the calendar 10 days.  The change was made the day after October 4th, 1582, and that following day was established as October 15, 1582.  The Gregorian calendar differs from the Julian in three ways ~  (1) No century year is a leap year unless it is exactly divisible by 400 (e.g., 1600, 2000, etc.); (2) Years divisible by 4000 are common (not leap) years; and (3) once again the New Year would begin with the date set by the early pagans, the first day of the month of Janus ~ January 1st.

I have previously blogged the Hebrew Lunar Calendar here .....  Measured by the Moon!!!!
     The goy world operates the gregorian calendar.

On New Years Day 1577 pope Gregory XIII decreed that all Roman Jews, under pain of death, must listen attentively to the compulsory catholic conversion sermon given in Roman synagogues after Friday night services.  On New Years Day 1578  Gregory signed into law a tax forcing Jews to pay for the support of a “House of Conversion” to convert Jews to xtianity.  On New Years 1581 Gregory ordered his troops to confiscate all sacred literature from the Roman Jewish community.  Thousands of Jews were murdered in the campaign as they refused to surrender the precious Sifrei Torah.

  Throughout the medieval and post-medieval periods,  January 1st,  supposedly the day on which jsus’ circumcision initiated the reign of chrstianity and the death of Judaism,  was reserved for anti-Jewish activities ..... synagogue and book burnings, public tortures, rape, and murder.   The heretical non testament, the greek book of xtianity instructs this of xtians.  So Sylvester means Slaughter the Jews Day.  Nice xtian history, huh??

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."  john 8.44

"Bring my enemies, who didn't want me to be their king. Kill them in front of me.'"  luke 19.27

So, we're Sons of Satan to be Slaughtered!!!!!!

And today,   we yet again have reason to fear those pogrom nights by xtian Jew haters, with their calls of "Juden Raus".    This has been augmented by a constant drip of xtian supposed Jew-lovers who for lack of respect for our right to our Torah unmauled by them,  seek ways of eliminating our tenets of Torah in indirect devious ways as they explain clearly on their sites to their believers and hangers on.   It is disgusting!!  

Although this day should be a time of bitter remembrance ~ we have a duty of Zakhor ~ it is not a time of celebration for Jews. 
Any celebration or acknowledgment of this day gives homage to the Goyyim who massacred and mistreated us for millenia.   Neither is it New Years.  Today is 19th of Teves,  5773.  This Is Our Calendar.  Our Only Calendar, G*d's Only Calendar and the one for all Jews.   As Rosh Ha'Shana  is the Jewish New Year and this occurs Every Tishrei.  It is not today.  Today is simply Sylvester's Day!

I Love this ....

  3. Hi!
    Since you otherwise come across as a proponent of the fatual,
    you should already know that Biblical verses most often have to be seen i context.
    Your "john 8.44 + luke 19.27 = Jews are sons of Satan to be slaughtered"
    comment is ridiculous, childish at best, but most of all factually wrong.

    Show unto others what you yourself would appreciate...

    Wishing you all the best, God bless :-)

  4. Well, Jon Blund ... it's not just the Invented cheesuz Idol (y'mach shemo) and the non testament thing attributed to him that is absolutely anti-semitic. And the faked tome is, but it runs right through the history of xtianity. In fact, destruction of the Jews is the driving force of xtian history, as this particular blog (and others herein purport to show clearly ......).

    And believe me, I do sooo appreciate all of the writings herein mentioned as fine examples of the anti semitic murderous intent of xtianity You see xtianity needs extermination of the Jews to validate itself and its false ideologies .... and so replacement theology is born. I'm sure you're not niaeve enough not to know this so I can only assume your post is disingenous at best.

    ""They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." john 8.44

    "Bring my enemies, who didn't want me to be their king. Kill them in front of me.'" luke 19.27

    Direct quotes from the xtian 'non testament' ..... FACT!!!!!!

    Jerome (author of the Latin Vulgate) and Augustine both good xtians taught that the Jewish people were eternally accursed by G*d. Ignatius, third bishop of Antioch, said that "The christian faith does not look to Judaism, but Judaism looks to christianity." In 339 CE, it was considered a criminal offense to convert to Judaism. Ambrose, bishop of Milan, Italy, praised the burning of a synagogue, as an act pleasing to G*d. Tertullian and Origen called the Jewish people "christ killers" and "deiciders (G*d-killers)" chas v'shalom. And the very same Augustine, a Roman catholic theologian, referred to as 'saint' called the Jewish people "sons of Satan." It is not from nowhere that I plucked the sentence.

    Then there is that revered father figure of protestant xtianity .... Martin Luther. Referred to as the father of REAL xtianity!!!!!!!! Let's see what he says in his infamous tome "On the Jews and their Lies" (published 1543 CE).

    "Therefore be on your guard against the Jews, knowing that wherever they have their synagogues, nothing is found but a den of devils in which sheer self-glory, conceit, lies, blasphemy, and defaming of G*d and men are practiced most maliciously and veheming his eyes on them."

    "Accordingly, it must and dare not be considered a trifling matter but a most serious one to seek counsel against this and to save our souls from the Jews, that is, from the devil and from eternal death. My advice, as I said earlier, is: First, that their synagogues be burned down, and that all who are able toss sulphur and pitch; it would be good if someone could also throw in some hellfire... Second, that all their books—their prayer books, their Talmudic writings, also the entire Bible—be taken from them, not leaving them one leaf, and that these be preserved for those who may be converted... Third, that they be forbidden on pain of death to praise G*d, to give thanks, to pray, and to teach publicly among us and in our country... Fourth, that they be forbidden to utter the name of G*d within our hearing. For we cannot with a good conscience listen to this or tolerate it..."

    1. That should read "False Idolatries" above & not "False Ideologies". That would be being too kind. And we are dealing with matters of FACT herein!!!!


  5. Martin Luther's agenda (from "On the Jews and their lies") is as follows: - Section XI of the treatise advises xtians to carry out seven remedial actions.

    These are ...

    *for Jewish synagogues and schools to be burned to the ground, and the remnants buried out of sight;
    *for houses owned by Jews to be likewise razed, and the owners made to live in agricultural outbuildings;
    * for their religious writings to be taken away;
    * for rabbis to be forbidden to preach, and to be executed if they do;
    *for safe conduct on the roads to be abolished for Jews;
    *for usury to be prohibited, and for all silver and gold to be removed and "put aside for safekeeping"; and
    *for the Jewish population to be put to work as agricultural slave labour.

    Sound familiar? .... Hitler too (y'mach shemo), was an xtian and he based his Nazi programme initially on this treatise of Martin Luther. It is nothing more than an extension of this verse and many others in xtianity'santi semitic book and programme. I could go on & on & on but I think the FACT of xtian desire for Jewish destruction in clear enough!

    Death is their desire for ALL Jews not love or friendship. So Jon Blund ..... as we approach Purim and our Victory over another anti semite ancestor of yours, Haman, I will say one thing to you. DROP THE MASK!. It's deceiving no one!!
