Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "http:" - if it does, change it to "https:" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Simply post the YouTube URL.
Alternately (actually, this may no longer work):
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the YouTube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. This will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!


How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

AFAIK the Kohen gene is patrilineal, Judaism is matrilineal.

I don't believe the tune of the Shema that they're singing goes back very far, almost certainly not to the times when the tribes we're lost. Methinks someone taught this to them more recently.

interesting
what ive always wondered is how did these "lost tribes" stray so far from the real religion as to be almost unrecognizable as jews except a few things
Unfortunately we have Millions such jews living in our backyards who've done it in under 100 years . It took theses people ( if they really come from jews) 2 thousand.

No, all it tells us is that some Kohanim (males) are their ancestors, it doesn't (by any definitely measure) confirm they are matrilineally Jewish.
