article GREEK ANTI-JEWHATIC RITUALIST JERUSALEM, Israel – Judas priest Jesus Alefantis, who is a frequent contributor to Jewish publications and a prominent figure in Israel’s anti-Israel and anti-Palestinian communities, has become the latest figure to embrace the concept of wearing the “high priest’s” garments.
The Orthodox priest has been known to wear his garments to synagogue and public events in Jerusalem, including a visit to the Western Wall and other Jewish holy sites.
He is known to have worn a kippa, or traditional robe, and was recently seen wearing a traditional robe and beard at a gathering of religious Jews.
His garments are also worn by some of Israel’s highest ranking politicians, including Finance Minister Yair Lapid and former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
“It is quite simple to do so and very comfortable to do it.
The kippas are not really a fashion item but are a sign of respect and honor,” said Alefantes, who now lives in Israel.”
If I want to wear my high priest’s garment, I wear it, I don’t look weird and I don.
I think it’s very simple.”
It is a common practice among Jewish groups that are against the occupation, the establishment of the Palestinian state and the expansion of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.
The practice of wearing such garments is not exclusive to Israel, as several Western European countries have already done so, according to a 2014 report by the Jewish Agency for Israel.
The report said that there were around 2,500 Orthodox priests in the European Union, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden and France.
Many Western European Orthodox leaders have been vocal about their opposition to Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and settlements.
Some, including the pope, have condemned the Israeli government’s policies towards Palestinians, as have prominent figures in the Jewish community.
In the United States, there are also numerous Jewish groups who have come out against the policies of the Israeli occupation, including Rabbi Marvin Hier of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
“I am not a religious Jew, but as a Christian, I cannot ignore the injustice and suffering that Israel is perpetrating on the Palestinian people,” Rabbi Hier told the Forward in January.
“This is the problem of the occupation and of occupation is the root of all oppression and all violence against Palestinians.”
Rabbi Hier said the garments are not only meant to signify respect for the deceased, but also to help people in the community feel more connected to their Jewish identity.
He said the garment has become a symbol of the Jewish people, and not just as a fashion accessory.
“The Jewish people have been worn in this fashion for centuries and the garments have always been worn by the people who are the most respected, the most feared, and they have been used as a form of ritual in the Torah,” he said.
“They are used to symbolize our unity, our love and our faith and our strength.”
He said he believes wearing the garment is symbolic of the “unity” that exists among Jewish communities in Israel and the world.
“A Jew does not have to go to a synagogue to wear the garment, but we are connected to the synagogue and we can show respect,” he told the newspaper.
“People can wear the garments and feel more like we are one community.”
He believes wearing garments in the synagogue is a symbol for all Jews, especially women.
“We can see the power of wearing this kind of garment and the power in showing our solidarity to the victims of oppression,” he added.
“We can also see that there is more than one way of wearing these garments, and that they can be worn in a variety of ways.”
According to the Israeli media, Alefants kippahs are made from the linen of the garment that is worn by priests.
He said the cloth was made by an Ethiopian tailor and is one of the fabrics that is used in traditional Judaism.
He added that he wore his garments in a religious way.
“As a Jew, I must wear this kippah because it is my spiritual garment.
I believe that God created me to be a priest and to wear it as a spiritual garment,” he explained.”
When I wear my garments, I’m wearing a garment that symbolizes my faith.
And when I’m praying, I pray with this garment.”
Alefantes was born in the Greek city of Kourou and moved to Jerusalem as a teenager.
He attended Hebrew University, where he studied for three years before joining a group called the Greek Orthodox Association.
He graduated from the university in 1993 and spent six years as a rabbi in Jerusalem.
He returned to Israel in 2007, where the priest has lived ever since.
His wife, Miriam, is a Jewish schoolteacher and has been his wife since 2008.
