  1. You stated that Jes-s is not mentioned in ‘The Torah.’
    He is, called ‘the nazarene.’

    • You seem very confused- their is no one called “the nazarene” in the Torah. The closest would be PEOPLE (not singular) who take the oath of the nazirite to not:
      a: Partake of grape products
      b: cut their hair
      c: allow themselves to be contaminated by a dead body.

      Bottom line- there is nothing in the Torah that refers to a the Mashiach as a pagan man-god concept

  2. Planning my son’s upsherin was intimidating, because I had never attended one. Luckily, I had a Lubavitch friend, Zalman Shmotkin, who filled me in on the details. He provided us with an assortment of beautiful ideas, and we adapted them to reflect our personalities. We learned that it is preferable to hold an upsherin in a holy place and to have a righteous person cut the hair. So we made it in our synagogue, and gave the first snip to a rabbi we admire. It is also customary to dip the child’s fingers in honey and place them on Hebrew letters, to bring home the sweetness of learning. Instead we had Torah-shaped lollipops, a cake with a little Torah on top and a musician playing Hebrew music.
