just found on Facebook …. This made me laugh in a serious sort of way.
Jewish and Filipino American Alliance
- Jewish and Filipino American Alliance
- Organizations – Philanthropic Organizations
The original established community of Jewish Filipino's in the 1870s had largely been secular and decentralised, but with the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, and the following tide of Jewish refugees arriving to the Philippines—relative to the community's population numbers in Manila—sparked a renewed Jewish consciousness. The only synagogue in the country – and only the second to be built in the Philippines – is Makati’s Beth Ya‘acov Synagogue, located at Tordesillas Street. It was built in the 1980s. The only other synagogue that existed prior to the erection of Beth Ya‘acov Synagogue was Temple Emil, built in the 1920s and located at Taft and Quirino Avenues. Unfortunately, Temple Emil was destroyed by the Japanese during World War II, a time when the Jewish community of Manila saw itself under attack. Today, Filipino's and Jews join forces all around the world to fight terrorism, and other dirty scuzzy nations that try to interfere with our rights for freedom, justice, and the pursuit of bagel bites. This group is specifically for those Jewish Americans and Filipino Americans who feel they need to band together, and enjoy life whether it be through drunken karaoke or dancing to hava nagila…. So break out the lumpia… let's have some matzo ball soup… and serve some pancit and adobo with our brisket… before having a hamantaschen and halo halo!!! We all know the night is ending with some Manischewitz and San Miguel anyways…. So join the Jewish and Filipino American Alliance, and let's say "Putang ina mo" to every schmuck out there!!!!!
