** Tisha B’ab – The Ninth of the month of Ab **

Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,

I welcome you all to yet another post here at Ras Tafari Renaissance. I also thank everyone who has supported the efforts put forth here.  I, Lidj Yefdi, on behalf of Ras Tafari Renaissance, offer the utmost gratitude.

Today, we as Ras Tafari should learn from the happenings of this day in history.  On the Hebraic/Jewish Calendar, today marks the destruction of the Second Temple of Jerusalem & the scattering of the Hebrew people among many other nations.  The Romans, under Titus(Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus) took Jerusalem after a rebellion of the Hebrew people. (70 AD)

Tisha B'ab [RRR] 2013

These events led to the disorientation of the Hebrew people, as a whole, but only came because of their disobedience to the Laws, God had for Israel. (ie. idols, corruption-spiritually and morally…)

*Notes

The questions of the authenticity of certain Jewish/Hebrew people has been a very intricate question, even for those who seem to be the learned in the Hebraic Laws, history & Torah(or the Scriptures); but Ras Tafari Renaissance seeks to aid in the proper education and dissemination of the truth about topics within our reach, by JAH(God)’s grace.

…with that said…

COULD THE DESTRUCTION/SIEGE OF THE TEMPLE OF JERUSALEM, BE A PRECURSOR TO THE VALIDITY IN HISTORY AND FACT, OF HEBRAIC PEOPLES OUTSIDE OF THE MAINSTREAM?

1) Lemba people in South Africa-Malawi-Zimbabwe(respectively)

2) Mizhrahi Jews of Persia/Iran-various other lands(respectively)

3) Moroccan Jews

4) Ebo/Igbo people-Nigerian Jews

5) Sephardim- Spanish Jews

6) Abayudaya people-Uganda

7) Bilad el-Soudan- West African Jew-various countries(respectively)

8) Beta Israel- Ethiopian Jews
