Don’t shoot the messenger

Embrace that love and feel salvation, he proclaims; love floats in the air around him.

There is a scene in The Messenger where Monty Python meets Greek tragedy; I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. The filmed altercation between the Na Nah Nahmans from Uman and a shofar-wielding Jacob Damkani leading his band of Messianists has to be seen to be believed.

The Na-Nahs yell about Jesus being the root of all Jewish catastrophes, the Messianics yell back that he was a Jew and that loving him is the only road. Earlocks sway in the wind, elaborate white kippot bob over long lank locks, robes flap… it’s mythological.
