Latino Rebels Town Hall Mixer ‘SOLD OUT!’…But There’s a WAIT LIST!


Latino Rebels Town Hall Mixer: Latino Vote 2016

Clearly, it’s overdue for our #RebeldesNation to gather around and have a lively conversation. Our Latino Rebels Town Hall Mixer, presented by our friends at The New York Times Latino Network filled up in less than 24 hours! To that, add the numerous emails we’ve received requesting to hold this event in other cities across the nation. It will happen, dear Rebels, stay tuned. But for now, 20 lucky #LatinoRebels can register for the mixer’s waiting list!

This panel discussion and community mixer will focus on the importance of the Latino vote in the 2016 elections. What are the issues highlighted by all candidates? What aren’t they discussing? What should we all consider before voting? These and many other questions will be explored by our panel of experts, attendees and online audience in an enlightening, fun and engaging town hall discussion. Here’s your chance to be part of the conversation.

The Talmud must not be regarded as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; it posies absolutely no similarity to any other literary production, but forms, without any figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that is frivolous of which it treats with great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace which presume the efficacy of demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “ judgments and decrees against the members of other nations and religions, and finally it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.

The Babylonian” Talmud is especially distinguished from the Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by the flights of thought, the penetration of mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for this reason that the Babylonian rather than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish Race, its life breath, its very soul, nature and mankind, powers and events, were for the Jewish nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. Persecution had occurred there on “ and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of them submitted to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms was only outward and false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They were called Marrano, ‘ Accursed Ones,’ and there were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
