January – France:
A new fad has been spreading like wildfire that originated in France in 2005 from the twisted xenophobic mind of stage comedian Dieudonné. Known as “La Quenelle” (French for “fish dumpling”), it consists of extending one arm like in the Nazi salute, but keeping it down along the body as you touch your shoulder with your other arm. This new gesture has made antisemitism trendy and has emboldened Jew-haters around the world.
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
