And knowing is half the battle

So things have been sort of nuts around here with the Holidays and general craziness. Of course by holiday I mean the New Moon release in theaters. I will have more on that in another post.

But today I want to talk about something I don't normally talk about nearly enough.


Now I have no beef to our kosher brethren, in fact I love the culture. I have talked about that on here even. I make latkes on Hanukkah, I watch fiddler on the roof at least once a year and I love Barbara Streisand. Does this qualify me for anything great? I doubt it. But , I just thought I would lay a little bit of ground work here.

I was driving the other day and passed this sign a couple times that day. It struck me as odd and got me thinking.
I am not sure what is going on there. I mean generally speaking isn't Mexico a predominately Catholic country? I mean it is the national religion. (yes I looked it up)

Are there a lot of Jews in Mexico?

So much so that they need a place to worship? And advertise?

I mean I have heard of Messianic Jews (Jews that were born and raised Jewish but converted to Christianity) but this was something I hadn't yet seen.

And so I dub this the Mexianic Jew.

Hey what do I care? Last I checked we have freedom of religion. Worship Elvis for all I care (and yes we do have a church of Elvis in this fine city of roses in which I live).

I just felt I needed to share with the class.

Talk amongst yourselves.
