    If I may borrow a uote from Rabbi Jill Hammer paganism has always been part of Judaism The rabbis in the Talmud are worried about idolatrous objects but they do magical spells They’re involved in the same things they would consider pagan if other people did them This book made me realize that Judaism and Paganism including Indo European Paganism do NOT contrast like a lot of people mistakenly think but they actually compliment each other It all makes sense now why both Jews and Pagans have been persecuted by Christian Europeans because their similarities are greater than their differences One example is that the Kabbalah features the divine feminine and so does Indo European Paganism I recommend this book for Pagans of European andor Jewish heritage

    Easy read and a great starter book for those looking to meld their Jewishness with their witchy ways and good for seasoned Jewitches as an easy refresher down their spiritual path With the information also comes a variety of interviews with Jewitches witchy Jews pagan Jews and Jewish pagans whether paganism or Judaism was their first path

    Magickal JudaismJennifer HunterCitadel Press 2006An oldNew kind of Jew is arising on the Jewish scene the Jewish Pagan A Jewish Pagan is someone who combines their Judaism and Paganism is some way or another Some identify as Pagans of Jewish backgrounds while others bring Pagan practices into their Judaism Some bring Jewish material into their worship of Pagan GodsGoddessesJewish Paganism is not entirely new however the Canaanites were the fore runner of the Israelites Their Gods included El Asherah Baal and Anath El is the father Gods and is referred to in the Jewish Torah Ashera was his consort Jews worshipped Ashera up until the falling of the second temple The Ancient Israelites were not pure monotheists even though there tribal God was YHVH YHVH existed along side other deities It is mentioned in the prophets that the Israelites worshipped Ashtoret the ueen of Heaven and honored Dummuzzi a Babylonian Shepherd GodBeing Paagan and Jewish are not as contradictory as one may think Many Jews today will adopt Celtic deities and most are predominantly Wiccan Some of the Wiccns in Israel may be entirely Pagan in many ways but will not touch the Caanaanite Gods Here is America the story is a bit differentSome of the most famous Wiccan Jews would include StarhawkeMarion Weinstein and Merlin Stone These Jews have had a major impact in the shaping of Moden Day Wicca In fact Jews make up a pretty high percentage of Neo Pagans Becoming aa Neo Pagan is not the same as becoming a Christian or a Muslim both groups which at certain historical junctions have had conflicts with the Jews Neo Paganism is not antagonistic towards Judaism and both are sort of outsider religionsThe Pagan paths and the Jewish path share many similiarities Both are concerned primarily with the her and now and creating a sacred space Both spiritual pursuits lend themselves well to either a solitary or group practice Both also have a sense of the feminine in the divine although in Modern Orthodox Judaism the trend might be to suppress the femenine sideWestern Occult and magickal traditions use kabbalistic material and inspiration uite freely and Kabbaallah is the bassis for most system of Magick Wicca included THere are religious Jews that practice Western MagickThe author Jennifer Hunter has prepared a nifty little book to get the budding magickal Jew started She covers scholarly material from Raphael Patai and Areyeh Kaplan two prominent Jewish scholars Material is also directly uoted from Marion Weinstein and Starhawke Two Wiccan Jews that have influenced countless Wiccan Jennifer also interviews some prominent Jewish Pagans active in the community A nice little bonus are some goodies that aa Jewitch can include in their grimoires This book is a great starting point to great journey Happy Trails

    Very informative book some of the stuff I did already know but it is very nice to have validation elsewhere LOL To see the comparisons between Canaanite mythos and early Hebrew mythos is eye opening for those who don't realize it I'm not very far into it and am kinda hoping she touches on the similarities between judaism and zoroastrianismthey are eerily similar I don't understand how someone can claim to be a person of faith of a particular path and not know the history of it And then to stand their and condemn others of similar background without doing your research is just stupid But off the point Ms Hunter has done her research and interviewed several people of like background to hers and presents a very knowledgable book I recommend to any religion scholar

    This is a thorough overview of the history of Judaism with connection to its pagan roots While I was sometimes confused by the intricacies of Jewish belief this is simply as a result of my own ignorance and not a reflection on the uality of the book I enjoyed the inclusion of Jewish Pagan rituals and prayers as well as the diverse opinions the author included I recommend this book to anyone with basic knowledge of Judaism or Paganism who is curious about various Jewish Pagan practices

    My parents were Celtic Witches and I was raised accordingly Much to their chagrin Judaism has always inexplicably appealed to me and I have long sought ways to combine the two pathsThis is a wonderful book it is interesting from beginning to end details the amazing similarities between beliefs and has given me a confidence boost about practising a combined faith
