anti-semitism, magic, judaism, complicated feelings about witchcraft and persecution
As i read about the history of medieval Jewish peoples and the ongoing persecution and stereotyping as being sorcerers and witches, i feel two things:
1. a desire and opportunity for so much solidarity with both modern witches and cultures reviving their own indigenous magical and religious practices
2. a bitterness specifically at whitewashed, goywashed, "never again the Burning Times" ideas of persecution for witchcraft that specifically those modern neopagans + witches tend to get, *especially* here in New England :V
