My Mission: Being A Light To The Nations

I chose Eliana Liorit as my Hebrew name because it is my desire to follow G-d’s mission for me which is to restore the offspring of Israel and bring G-d’s light to the nations.

Isaiah Chapter 49 (JPS)

When I read Isaiah, I see so much of myself in it.

1 Listen, O isles, unto me, and hearken, ye peoples, from far: HaShem hath called me from the womb, from the bowels of my mother hath He made mention of my name;

2 And He hath made my mouth like a sharp sword, in the shadow of His hand hath He hid me; and He hath made me a polished shaft, in His quiver hath He concealed me;

3 And He said unto me: ‘Thou art My servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified.’

4 But I said: ‘I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought and vanity; yet surely my right is with HaShem, and my recompense with my G-d.’

5 And now saith HaShem that formed me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob back to Him, and that Israel be gathered unto Him–for I am honourable in the eyes of HaShem, and my G-d is become my strength–

6 Yea, He saith: ‘It is too light a thing that thou shouldest be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the offspring of Israel; I will also give thee for a light of the nations, that My salvation may be unto the end of the earth.’

7 Thus saith HaShem, the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One, to him who is despised of men, to him who is abhorred of nations, to a servant of rulers: kings shall see and arise, princes, and they shall prostrate themselves; because of HaShem that is faithful, even the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee.

8 Thus saith HaShem: in an acceptable time have I answered thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee; and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to raise up the land, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;

9 Saying to the prisoners: ‘Go forth’; to them that are in darkness: ‘Show yourselves’; they shall feed in the ways, and in all high hills shall be their pasture;

10 They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor sun smite them; for He that hath compassion on them will lead them, even by the springs of water will He guide them.

11 And I will make all My mountains a way, and My highways shall be raised on high.

12 Behold, these shall come from far; and, lo, these from the north and from the west, and these from the land of Sinim.

13 Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth, and break forth into singing, O mountains; for HaShem hath comforted His people, and hath compassion upon His afflicted.

14 But Zion said: ‘The HaShem hath forsaken me, and the L-rd hath forgotten me.’

15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, these may forget, yet will not I forget thee.

16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands; thy walls are continually before Me.

17 Thy children make haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth from thee.

18 Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to thee. As I live, saith HaShem, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all as with an ornament, and gird thyself with them, like a bride.

19 For thy waste and thy desolate places and thy land that hath been destroyed–surely now shalt thou be too strait for the inhabitants, and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away.

20 The children of thy bereavement shall yet say in thine ears: ‘The place is too strait for me; give place to me that I may dwell.’

21 Then shalt thou say in thy heart: ‘Who hath begotten me these, seeing I have been bereaved of my children, and am solitary, an exile, and wandering to and fro? And who hath brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where were they?’

22 Thus saith the L-rd GOD: Behold, I will lift up My hand to the nations, and set up Mine ensign to the peoples, and they shall bring thy sons in their bosom, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

23 And kings shall be thy foster-fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers; they shall bow down to thee with their face to the earth, and lick the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am HaShem, for they shall not be ashamed that wait for Me.

24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the captives of the victorious be delivered?

25 But thus saith HaShem: even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; and I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.

26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine; and all flesh shall know that I HaShem am thy Saviour, and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

    Thank you so much for this website-I really appreciate the information-I never embraced antisemitism entirely, and in doing extensive genealogical research, I believe I may be partially Jewish. I foolishly had an interest in White Nationalism-due to believing that European culture was being destroyed, and seeing anti-white criminality in my childhood community. I am the type of person to research things heavily, though, and continued with my interest in these things-until I had some violent and nasty online encounters when attempting to debate politics with these absolute morons. I have never seen a hatred of women so vile in my life-(well, I’m from the south, so perhaps I have..) The very thing that prompted me to take an interest in that stuff-vulgar and violent misogynist rap, for instance-was the very kind of behavior and belief system of the typical White Nationalist. Your website solidified my decision that there were simply no decent people in this “movement,” and involvement would be a great way to be badly hurt or killed-not to mention that what you are revealing backs up what I have been noticing myself-they are rife with mental illness. They exhibit all the qualities they say they hate in others.
    A big thank you!!

      Thanks for writing, Em. I hope that I have been able to spare you & those close to you a lot of heartache 🙂 Yes, there is a lot of mental illness within these groups and it is actually quite sad. People tend to think that WN is all about hating people with a different skin color or other traits when it is really about hating oneself. Some great books to read about sociopaths are The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout and Malignant Self-Love: Narcissism Revisited by Sam Vaknin. Sam also has a ton of free content on his website and YouTube channel. G-d bless you!

      Also, if you feel that you may be Jewish, you should seek out a rabbi and discuss with him. Also, you can check out sites like jewishgen.org concerning tracing ancestry. Sometimes though, our relatives changed names and religions to escape persecution so keep that in mind. There are many good sources online nowadays like chabad.org, myjewishlearning.com, outreachjudaism.org, and jewsforjudaism.org. Also, israelnationalradio.com has great information as well. The rabbi who runs Outreach Judaism has a show on Wednesday nights 11pm CST and he has worked with many people.
