US rabbi rewrites traditional prayer – to avoid blessing Trump

Can you imagine a Christian pastor withholding prayer from even a Muslim president?

My God, Trump’s daughter converted to Judaism when she married Jared Kushner.

No wonder we have the famous slogan, pictured below.

Shmuly Yanklowitz, an Open Orthodox rabbi and dean of the Valley Beit Midrash in Phoenix, Arizona, has responded to the election of the 45th President of the United States by rewriting the traditional Shabbat prayer for the US President – so as to avoid actually blessing him.

Jews made it a custom to pray for the welfare of the nation and ruler in which worshipers reside. Most Orthodox prayer books in the United States contain this prayer:

“He who grants salvation to kings and dominion to rulers, whose kingdom is a kingdom spanning all eternity, who releases David his servant from the evil sword, who places a road in the sea and a path in the mighty waters, may he bless The President, the Vice President, and all the Constituted Officers of Government of this Land. The King who reigns over Kings in his mercy may he protect them from every trouble, woe, and injury, may he rescue them and put into their hearts and into the hearts of all their councilors compassion to do good with us and with all Israel, our brethren. In their days and in ours, may Judah be saved and may Israel dwell securely, and may the Redeemer come to Zion. So may it be his will, and let us say: Amen.”

Yanklowitz, who founded the Uri L’Tzedek Orthodox Social Justice organization, on Monday publicized an alternative prayer, dropping the blessing for the success of America’s president and instead accusing the incoming president of promoting white supremacy.

“Because of my commitment to the integrity of prayer, starting this week, I can no longer recite or say amen to the Shabbat prayer for the success of the U.S. President,” Yanklowitz wrote.

“I felt that it was not enough to simply avoid the U.S. President in the prayer for the government but to remind myself of the billions of vulnerable people who are at risk under his rule, and challenge myself each Shabbat to build up the strength for another week of spiritual resistance.”

with jews you lose

This particular Jew will make you a big loser. Read more about him at Wikipedia. He wants to flood the U.S. with Syrian “refugees.”

      • You mean this Tony Robbins? Didn’t realize he was Jewish, but it makes sense > expensive courses re money, power, etc.

      • I THINK he’s Jewish. There’s evidence for that. I looked him up before doing this post because the rabbi looks so much like him. Tony’s real last name is claimed to be Polish, but there are a lot of Jews in Poland.


    Robbins was born Anthony J. Mahavoric in North Hollywood, California, on February 29, 1960.[3] His surname was originally spelled ‘Mohorović’ and is of Croatian origin.[4

    I can find no information on him being jewish, active or otherwise, but does everyone you dislike have to be a jew??

      • An interesting link, thanks. I have a couple of his books and a tape. I like many of his concepts but never really buckled down to study his work. I may get back to it, among a million other projects. He does give different perspectives to handling life problems. Yeah, he’s slick,but he’d never get me to walk over hot coals, stumbling down the stairs is enough of a challenge, haha!
