Strange play: Why did a senior Christian man put on a tallit and blow the shofar? | Israel today


Senator Doug Maestriano did not surprise anyone when he announced he was running for governor of Pennsylvania • But why did he put on a tallit and blow the shofar in a rather bizarre way - and not for the first time? • View documentation

"We can not continue on the path we are marching," Senator Doug Mastriano said in a speech announcing his joining the race for governor of Pennsylvania.

Then he blew the shofar.

So what if he is not a Jew at all but a Christian?


Doug Mastriano announced his candidacy for Gov of PA today.

They opened the proceedings the same way they opened J6 in DC, by blowing the Shofar, signaling that this political battle will also be spiritual.

The ceremony that took place last Saturday surprised quite a few people.

Admittedly, the fact that the man, a Republican senator similar in behavior to Donald Trump, was interested in running for governor was known, but no one expected the way he would announce his message.

Wearing a Jewish tallit he made an enthusiastic speech about how God would not want the American people to continue the way he is going, and then blew blasts with a large Yemenite shofar.

By the way, if he wins the primaries of the Republican movement, he is expected to face Josh Shapiro - a strictly Jew.

In Israel and abroad: the most worthwhile promotions in tourism

This is not the first time that Mastriano has attended an event where the shofar is blown.

In December 2020, he participated in marches known as the "Jericho Marches" throughout the city of Washington.

The hope was then that miraculously the election results would be canceled and Donald Trump would remain president.

Those who did not like the Jewish gesture by a non-Jew were the surfers.

"I know this is a free country and he is allowed to own for a political event two of the most significant elements of Jewish worship - the tallit worn on Shabbat and the shofar that is heard on Rosh Hashanah, and I am free to say it is shameful," he tweeted.

Were we wrong?
