There is nothing on that page to suggest that he was Jewish or an anarchist. DayKart 21:57, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Unnecessary list This list is mostly redlinks and should be merged into Jewish anarchism. -Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 04:34, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Citations needed[edit]

Quite urgently, unless someone provides some references my AfD closure was rather pointless. Moreschi If you've written a quality article... 16:45, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

No Gods, No Masters...No Hanukkah?[edit]

Obviously, a large proportion of anarchists are non-theistic. Is this reconcilable with being a Jew, for the purposes of this list? Or should this list refer only to anarchists who were practicing, God-fearing Jews during their lifetime? Skomorokh incite 01:17, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Seems to me that it is quite well-known that most Jewish anarchists were Jewish by birth, and to at least some degree by personal connection to one or more aspects of Jewish culture, history, and tradition. Most Jews on the left were historically explicitly or impliucitly secular Jews. Some secular Jews consider themselves part of an explicitly secular Jewish stream within Jewish life. Others, while not denying that they are in some shape, manner or form Jews, do not associate per se with an explicitly Jewish left. 23 January 2010 (Arieh Lebowitz) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.242.145.184 (talk) 02:38, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

By most accounts, both Jewish and antisemitic, if one is born a member of the tribe she or he is Jewish for life, regardless of belief or disbelief in God or religious practice. Converting to another religion is transgressive, but ceasing to practice Judaism is not. See Jewish atheist, Who is a Jew?, and Jewish identity. — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 01:57, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Paul Avrich[edit]

seems to me the two sources cited do not provide evidence that Paul Avrich was a Jewish anarchist, because theyu don't actually claim him as an anarchist. I'm pretty sure he wasn't. Can anyone show me he was?BobFromBrockley (talk) 23:35, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi Bob. According to this article, Avrich called himself an anarchist. (Scroll to the bottom of the page.) — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 23:50, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! I didn't read carefully enough. BobFromBrockley (talk) 13:36, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
