A few characteristics distinguish the 1.3 million residents of New Hampshire. They’re old, with a median age of 41.9 (third-oldest in the country), and 94 percent white (fourth-whitest state in America). Fewer than 20,000 of the state’s residents are black.
Yes, and we are tired of people telling us our state needs to be fixed.
“There’s a rugged individualism that permeates New Hampshire,” said Rabbi Robin Nafshi, who moved to New Hampshire nearly six years ago to lead Temple Beth Jacob, a Reform synagogue in Concord. “The state motto, ‘Live free or die,’ is taken very seriously here. People don’t like to be told how or what to do.”
You’re right Rabbi, we don’t like being told what to do. If you and your fellow Jews truly understood that you would stop trying to portray yourselves as victims all the time and stop telling Whites they need to conform to your Jewishness.
New Hampshire’s first state constitution, ratified in 1784, did not allow Jews (or any non-Protestants) to hold elected office. Restricted Jew-free hotels persisted in New Hampshire’s White Mountains until the mid-20th century.
Sounds like the people of New Hampshire had it right back then.
Until four years ago, the tiny town of Mont Vernon had a recreational water hole with the offensive-sounding name Jew Pond — residents voted to change it in 2012.
This is what I am talking about Rabbi. Jews are always trying to be offended victims because they use it as a way to get what they want and if you don’t give in to their self proclaimed victimhood you are an anti Semite.
“In New Hampshire, unless you were born here or your grandparents or great-grandparents were born here, you’re left to feel like you’re an outsider,” Temple Beth Jacob’s Rabbi Nafshi said. “If you’re not a white Christian, you’re welcomed here to an extent, but you’re never really fully integrated into the society.”
It sounds like you would fit in better if you lived in Israel.
It’s not a lack of knowledge, we just don’t care. Jews always migrate to an area and then try and force and coerce the host populace to conform to Jewish identity. We’re sick of the B.S. If you don’t like it, leave.
The rabbi recalled the story of a second-grader from her congregation whose best friend came to school one day and told him they couldn’t be friends anymore because “you killed Jesus.” The Jewish family soon decided to leave New Hampshire, according to Nafshi.
Is that all it would take to move out of NH?
Nevertheless, the state has unusually strong Holocaust education programming in the public schools
“Programming”? Jews don’t try to hide it anymore. They are literally programming our children to believe in a big lie in order to create more people who will cater to their wants and interests.
“We’re trying to define ourselves really meaningfully as a statewide organization,” Jeff Crocker, the federation co-chair, told JTA. “We’re talking about what that means. We want to enhance collaboration between Jewish institutions in the state, to fill the voids where necessary. We try to provide some leadership. We help them think about ways to be innovative and try new things.”
Jeff, it sounds like the mission is to increase the size and scope of Jewish identity in New Hampshire while simultaneously decreasing White identity. Is that why so many Jewish organizations support 3rd world immigration into majority White areas? Why not just move to Israel instead? New Hampshirites like it the way it is.
