Hoshen: Israeli Non-Profit for LBGTQ


Hoshen (Hebrewחושן Hoshenlit. ’priestly breastplate‘) is an Israeli non-profit LGBT organization that is listed by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association as the largest such organization in Israel. Hoshen is the Hebrew acronym for Education and Change.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horace, than you can dream of in your philosophy. Hamlet (1.5.167-8) Shakespeare

And I, like Horace, despite having a strong imagination and intellectual capacity, cannot find any rational explanation for the incredible coincidence and contradiction that I am about to present to you.

So: In the ancient Jewish religion, the high priest (Hebrew: כּהֵן הָדֹאשׁ ,הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדוֹל ,הַכֹּהֵן?, kohèn gadòl, or kohen ha-Gadol) was the head of the priestly class, from the birth of the Israelite nation according to of Jerusalem.

The high priests belonged to priestly Jewish families that trace their patrilineality back to Aaron, the first high priest and older brother of Moses.

He and only he as high or high priest had the right-privilege-duty to wear the priestly breastplate (Hoshen חֹשֶׁן): with twelve gems, each engraved with the name of one of the tribes; a pocket in which the Urim and Thummim were probably carried.

He was attached to the Ephod.

Hoshen was therefore a vestment, or rather I would say a sacred object, whose sacredness was absolute, exclusive, and maximum in the ancient Jewish religion, as the right to boast of it belonged exclusively to the high or high priest and allowed (only to him) to communicate directly with God. These concepts could perhaps have been better expressed and with a more appropriate language (”but their pens were not from this” Paradiso, Canto XXXIII, Dante) that is mine, and I have tried to express them with due respect to a religion, and, among other things, not just anyone, but precisely to the one that precedes and on which the Christian one is based, and I, unfortunately, am not a rabbi, please forgive me.

However, I drew all this information from Wikipedia under the heading High Priest of Israel
which you can check if you want at the following link: High Priest of Israel

Somehow Hoshen corresponds by analogy to what in the Catholic Christian religion was the Papal Tiara officially described in the following link:  Vatican News

Both sacred objects are of symbolic and liturgical importance that I would not know how to define if not extreme, absolute, or unique.

Again ”their pens were not from that”!

Now in research that I recently carried out on my own and which was aimed precisely at knowing what food and hoshen were, I came across the following link: Hoshen

But why do I tire myself and I tire you with all these notions taken from various links?

What’s up with it? you will say.

There is a lot of it!

Especially in the light of this seemingly absurd Italian article by the excellent Blondet, but Biden’s statements are incredible and absurd!

Biden: “Chi critica la chirurgia trans è antisemita”

By linking this article with my previous considerations on Hoshen my personal contribution is confirmed and strengthened.

I have no words, I don’t know what to think and say, but it seems absolutely incredible to me that Hoshen, on Wikipedia, is alone, and only an Israeli organization of volunteers whose goal is to overcome stereotypes regarding sexual orientation and non-normative sexual identity.

In favor of LGBTQ!

Mind you that now I’m not discriminating by explicitly politically offending the LGBTQ minority. God forbid!
If anything, I invite you to greater discretion and greater respect for religion. Of other minorities.

And that Wikipedia makes no reference to the sacredness of that vestment, a symbolic and liturgical object of unique importance in the history of the Jewish religion, I can’t give myself a reason.

And again where is the respect for religion?

Isn’t all this blasphemous?

Besides freedom assured by civil laws and secularization isn’t this a sin of sodomy not only among Christians but already for the Jews?

Do I really have to quote the Bible (Genesis 18, 19) already Jewish and then Christian to remind you all this?

Is it possible that this culturally traumatic LGBTQ gender shock is imposed only for reasons of personal gain by some groups interested in the exploitation of this economy as someone seems to suggest or is a global Malthusian strategy at stake?

Is someone trying to erase or transform the identity of Judeo-Christian civilization? Transhuman.

  1. Dear my Alfredo and Snookie,
    Judeo/Christian never meant that Judaism and Christianity were the same thing or equivalent.
    If anything, it means that they shared the same cultural and ethnic origin stock.
    For set theory, the Judeo/Christian set contains the Judeo and the Christian subsets.

  2. Judeo/Christian is an oxymoron. As if those who worship Jesus the Christ have something in common with those who shouted “crucify him”.
