AMERICAN ANUSIM UNDER THE BUS?

by Dr. Dell F. Sanchez

I have confirmed that Sephardic Hispanic/Latinos of the U.S. as well as Mexico have been thrown under the bus!  My wife and I participated in interviews led by an official panel representing the Israeli government, specifically, the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs in Jerusalem, in 2015. We gave direct accounts of our personal stories related to our Jewish history as well as millions of ‘people just like us’ with a Sephardic history and heritage.

Twenty-two years ago, I began this journey to find out if, in fact, there was any significant presence of Hispanic/Latinos with Sephardic Jewish roots. As years went by, a mountain of positive evidence began to emerge from within virtually every discipline of knowledge. Now, after 22 years and around 30 trips to Israel and after a multitude of interviews with Israelis and Israeli officials, our people continue to be ignored, overlooked, skipped over and rejected.

Invariably, oral as well as written reports and articles continue to stress the presence of Sephardic Anusim roots as if they were only in Central and South America—not even in Mexico and much less in the USA. I have a multifaceted theory on this blatant travesty, but I’ll leave it for another day and for inquiring minds.

I could go on and on but won’t. I’ll simply yet boldly say: PRAY!  We desperately need a miracle. If you care: PRAY. If you care for our people: PRAY.  If you care for the fulfillment of biblical prophecy: PRAY MORE. We must pray as Nehemiah did in his first chapter. And we need to pray as Daniel did three times a day. We need to pray as Jeremiah did in Lamentations. And we need to be reminded of Yeshua’s final words, “Could you not tarry (wait) with me one hour?”

Now, this fall, all hell will break loose in our national politics and the media will behave as hungry sharks after blood. But keep an eye on 2020 because it’s a sharp double-edged sword affecting the U.S. as well as Israel. I can’t go into detail now but be ready for a fierce battle. We must have a huge miracle by then or our closing window of opportunity could be shut, perhaps forever or until Messiah comes…

Pray without ceasing,

Dell

PS, Pray Obadiah 1:20b be fulfilled before 2020 is gone!

2018 UNVEILS NAMES

By Dell F. Sanchez

Your name is important because YOU are important. This is the year when Jews around the world, especially in Israel, discover that your name is connected to a Jewish ancestry.

We begin 2018 with the Torah reading of the Book of Exodus also known as The Book of Names: SHEMOT שְׁמוֹת‬. — We’ll soon discover at Moses’ burning bush event that God calls His Name, “I AM THAT I AM.”

Our people, the Hispanic-Latino Sephardic Anusim Jews are discovering that their DNA, their genealogies as well as their NAMES are integrally connected to a Jewish history and heritage.

As in Moses’ burning bush revelation,we too shall discover our significance in the eyes of God.

Feliz Año Nuevo – Happy New Year

A Jalapeño Challa-Peño Holiday

By Dell F. Sanchez, Ph.D

End of the year holidays is as beautiful as they are spicy for millions of Hispanic Anusim Jews. This is a time when vanishing recipes leap to greet families of an ancient Spanish Jewish heritage.

Despite differences in generation and religious slants, they erupt in glee with música, comida y bebidas (music, food and drinks). Some family members are Jewish, some are Catholic, some are Evangelical and others are as mixed as a Mexican tamale.

Speaking about the tamale, cousin of the enchilada, it’s made with the same masa (dough) as the corn tortilla. It so happens that in southern Mexico, the corn tortilla is used as the matza or Jewish unleavened bread. The flour tortilla is the matza of northern Mexico and America’s Southwest. The tamale is filled with a diversity of meats and secret ancient spices. Some tamales are even made with beans and Jalapeño peppers.

Now speaking of Jalapeño chiles, notice the first syllable, jala or challa which is the Sabbath’s bread of Jews. This bread has made its way all around the world including Mexico, the Southwest and now all across America.

We end the year with the favorite desert called the buñelo. This is a deep-fried matza (I mean tortilla) made with eggs, salt, baking powder, oil and a delicious blend of sugar and cinnamon. They’re crunchy and rounded like the tortilla. They all go great with un cafecito or the popular Mexican Anusim hot drink called the champurrado. This, too, is made with browned flour and good old Nestle’s chocolate founded by non-other than Jews.

So what relationship do these foods have to Hispanic-Latinos of a Sephardic Jewish ancestry? As hidden as the jala/challa is in the peño (Jalapeños), so are the Jewish roots within a huge portion of the Hispanic-Latino population in the Americas. As mischievous as the tamale hiding its internal ingredients, so are these hidden Jews preserving their roots and heritage all across the centuries.

So don’t be deceived with the felicitations of Feliz Navidad, Feliz Januca or Feliz Año Nuevo (Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Happy New Year). Like the tamalito, you never know what’s inside.

Have a merry Challa-Peño Holiday!

Una Fiesta Challa-Peña

Las vacaciones de fin de año son tan hermosas como picantes para millones de judíos hispanos de Anusim. Este es un momento en el que las recetas que desaparecen brincan para saludar a las familias de un antiguo legado judío español.

A pesar de las diferencias en la generación y los sesgos religiosos, estallan de alegría con música, comida y bebidas. Algunos miembros de la familia son judíos, algunos son católicos, algunos son evangélicos y otros son tan mezclados como un tamal mexicano.

Hablando del tamal, primo de la enchilada, está hecho con la misma masa que la tortilla de maíz. Resulta que, en el sur de México, la tortilla de maíz se utiliza como matza o pan sin levadura judía. La tortilla de harina es la matza del norte de México y el suroeste de Estados Unidos. El tamal está lleno de una diversidad de carnes y especias antiguas secretas. Algunos tamales incluso se hacen con frijoles y pimientos jalapeños.

Ahora, hablando de chiles jalapeños, observe la primera sílaba, jala o chala, que es el pan de judíos del sábado. Este pan ha hecho su camino en todo el mundo, incluyendo México, el suroeste y ahora en todo Estados Unidos.

Terminamos el año con el desierto favorito llamado el buñuelo. Esta es una matza frita (me refiero a la tortilla) hecha con huevos, sal, polvo de hornear, aceite y una deliciosa mezcla de azúcar y canela. Son crujientes y redondeados como la tortilla. Todos van muy bien con un cafecito o la popular bebida caliente mexicana Anusim llamada champurrado. Esto también está hecho con harina dorada y un chocolate establecido por judíos, el chocolate Nestle.

Entonces, ¿qué relación tienen estas comidas con los hispano-latinos de ascendencia judía sefardí? Tan escondido como el jala está en el peño (jalapeño), también lo están las raíces judías dentro de una gran porción de la población hispano-latina en las Américas. Tan traviesos como el tamal que esconde sus ingredientes internos, también lo están estos judíos ocultos que preservan sus raíces y herencia a lo largo de los siglos.

Así que no te dejes engañar con las felicitaciones de Feliz Navidad, Feliz Janucá o Feliz Año Nuevo. Como el tamalito, nunca se sabe lo que hay adentro.

¡Diviértete en estas fiestas Jala-Peños!

Sephardic Anusim Crypto Jews Hidden among Hispanic-Latinos

By Dell F. Sanchez

The last decade has unleashed evidences of every kind regarding hidden Jews among Hispanic-Latinos all across our continent. For 21 years I’ve investigated this phenomenon and now have social as well as hard science to prove this point.

Some of the social sciences include onomastics (names), archaeology, cultural anthropology and more. The hard science I refer to is genetic DNA testing.

One of my books on this subject is OUT FROM HIDING–Evidences of Jewish roots among Latinos. In fact, I have published 6 books in English, 5 of which are also in Spanish on this subject. I’ve also published 4 booklets that spell out details affecting our people.

With all sorts of holidays right before us, I’m celebrating a BUY 1 – GET ONE FREE on the same subject. Simply go to http://www.americananusim.org and click on the STORE tab. You may also desire to check out the DNA tests available through our hosting lab, FTDNA which can be found on my homepage. You can pay with your favorite credit card using our Pay Pal system.

Hidden Jews Among Us –Evidences of Jewish Roots in the Hispanic Community–

By Dell F. Sanchez, Ph.D.

When I started on this journey 21 years ago, very little was known about any Jewish roots among American Hispanic-Latinos. During my early trips to Israel, I found nothing but fascination among the Israelis. One young IDF soldier said, “Our rabbi has told us about your people and that you’re coming back home.” A high-ranking Israeli official exclaimed, “Is there more people like you?”

I was tempted to say, “Yes, there are millions of us” but I didn’t want to frighten him so I said “thousands.” However, in a recent conference in Israel on the Sephardic Anousim (or Anusim), a prominent leader on Anousim, Ashley Perry, stated there are around 100 million Anousim worldwide. He later corrected himself by saying that the real experts told him that 100 million is a very conservative figure. Personally, I believe there are at least 100 million in our Western Hemisphere.

The question that’s constantly asked of me is when I think our people will begin to make Aliyah (immigrate) to Israel. At first, I was taken back because no one really knows when. However, from what I’ve seen and heard, first-hand in Israel, I can now say that I truly believe that by 2020 we should begin to see a trickle, then a stream and then a flood. The Russian immigration of the ’90’s will pale at the immigration of Hispanic-Latinos from the U.S., Mexico, Central and South America, islands of the Caribbean as well as Spain and Portugal.

But what’s the biblical significance of this anticipated phenomenon? Thousands of years ago, the Prophet Obadiah prophesied that the exiles of Sepharad (which is Spain in Hebrew) will return and occupy the Negev of Israel. Now, the Negev constitutes 60% of Israel’s land mass. Quite frankly, we’ll need all the space we can get because of the gigantic numbers of our people; and the wonderous contributions we’ll be making to our newfound home. (There’s only between 7 to 8% of Jews presently living in the Negev.)

In closing, let me say that even the cosmos is declaring that something earthshaking is fixing to take place. In 2014 and ’15, we experienced four blood moons, each during a major biblical/Jewish feast of Passover and Succoth (Feast of Tabernacles). Then, in September of this year, we experienced the marvelous and total solar eclipse. But that’s not all. During the Passover season of 2024, just 7 years from now, we’ll experience another total solar eclipse. This time, this eclipse shall cover parts of Mexico, it’ll pass right over my native city of San Antonio, much of Texas and jet northeast as if leading us across the Atlantic towards IsraeI. I deeply believe that by this time, massive hosts of our people will be settling down in their new home of the Negev-the land of the patriarchs and much of the borders of the Tribe of Judah. So, keep your passport valid and your house in order to be prepared for the fulfillment of this awesome end-times prophecy.

Expectantly,

Dell
