The world watched in horror as fire engulfed the Notre-Dame Cathedral on April 15. Rabbi David Schneier says his wife, Leslye, received a word from the Lord several years ago while they were walking around Notre Dame.

Listen to hear what the Lord said and the role France has played in anti-Semitism.

Introduction

Stephen Strang: Most everyone knows that one of the most famous buildings in the entire world, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, has been on fire. It's been in the news. Today, I have on my podcast, a man who is very familiar with Paris and who has some interesting information and insights from a spiritual point of view. Hello, everyone, I'm Stephen Strang, and thank you for listening to the Strang Report. Today I am interviewing Rabbi David Schneider, who is over all the Messianic Jewish synagogues in Europe. I met him at one of the rabbi conferences a number of years ago and I reached out to him because of his knowledge about Paris and asked him if he would talk to me so we could do an article online and give a different kind of perspective, a spiritual perspective that you don't get in the regular news.

Rabbi David Schneider: We're just days before Passover, so you can understand it's very busy here. I would like to say that my work with congregations in Europe is limited to the alliance that I'm part of. So, there are other groups that have congregations in Europe as well.

Stephen Strang: You told me that you lived in Paris for six years. You're now back in the United States. And during that time, you lived just a couple of minutes from Notre Dame. Everybody who goes to Paris visits it, or nearly everybody. Tell me what it was like being there and what are your observations about the cathedral. Also what were your thoughts when you heard that it was on fire?

Rabbi David Schneider: We really lived, at maximum, a 10-minute walk from Notre Dame. So, it's a big part of our life there. It is a very beautiful part of the city. We lived right next to the Sorbonne. So, Notre Dame was a big part of our life. It's an amazing structure, inside and out. I don't know if you know this, but the big, round stained-glass windows, I think there's two or three of them, the French took out all the pieces of stained glass, which is innumerable, before the Nazis arrived there and hid them and put them back in after the war. Notre Dame, historically, kings are crowned there. De Gaulle walked to Notre Dame, and he could have been shot by snipers, there were still snipers in the city. It plays a huge role in the historical sense of France. So, seeing the building burning, we could see it almost every other day, walking by it. It's unbelievable to me. I was mentioning that to the Archbishop of Paris, who also became a Cardinal … Aaron Jean-Marie Lustiger, he was Jewish and saved by a Catholic family in World War II and became the Archbishop of Paris. So, there was a very strong connection. Above the altar there was a plaque. I hope it survived. It said that his name was Aaron. He was named after his paternal Jewish grandfather, that he became Christian by faith and by baptism, and that he remained a Jew as did the apostles. That’s quite a statement. The other reflection I had that most of my French friends didn't even know about was that over the main center door of the cathedral, where two statues were one, the church triumphant, and one was a statue of a Jewish person whose crown was on the ground, the staff broken and a circle around her eyes and her head. So, it's sort of a mixed feeling. It brought up a lot of what happened in France, deportation of almost 80,000 Jews to their death. One of those persons was a relative of mine who left Ukraine and came to France for freedom only to be deported by the French government. But by and large, it is an unbelievable place and it's hard to believe watching it, that all that was burning.

Stephen Strang: And of course, the officials are saying they don't know what caused the fire. I guess time will tell. You told me earlier when were talking that you have heard from some of your friends who are still in Paris, what insights can you give me from what they told you?

Rabbi David Schneider: Well, these folks are Christians. One's a pastor, American. One works in Christian ministry. Some of his thoughts are that it’s one of the architectural wonders of the world, 13 million tourists and pilgrims a year, the center of Paris … He said seeing it engulfed by flames created a national sorrow of unprecedented proportions. Within just 48 hours from the start of the blaze, more than 1 billion euros was pledged by the French people to rebuild it. The biggest image for him was a photo of the golden cross that was hanging over the pulpit that was neither scorched nor moved. The roof collapsed to the inside, and yet that thing was still there, undamaged. Many people are saying that was a total miracle. My other friend who works in Christian ministry said the cathedral rector said on TV that he was asking God why. The French say they feel about the same as if Westminster Abbey in London burned or the Statue of Liberty in the United States, part of their history went up in smoke. All the kings of France were crowned there. De Gaulle survived snipers, bullets to proclaim liberation. National prayers after terrorist attacks occur there. She also said kind of with a smile, sales of Victor Hugo’s book and the DVD of a musical have shot through the roof in France. This person commented that President Macron said they're going to be rebuilt in less than five years. She said that's entirely impossible. There's no possible way that they could do that. So, it's nice to say, but the timing was interesting for Macron because he was about to make a big speech dealing with all the recent riots in France. But I guess at this point he is not going to have to. But this was like his make or break speech that didn't occur; the fire preempted it. So, he didn't have to make that speech. My wife commented that it was interesting that this was another two-tower sort of situation. I did mention about a sign that we saw over Notre dame. I don't know if you want to go into that now. But it was very interesting. So, we spent a lot of time in and around the cathedral.

Stephen Strang: Tell us about that sign.

Rabbi David Schneider: Well, we were there, and, in France, the weather, it doesn't like get an intense storm in a few minutes. But that day it did, a windy day, and the rain was like in torrents. We had two of our kids there. When the rain stopped, a cloud formed. I've heard a lot of people say I've seen a cloud, this and that. There's a cloud in the sky that looked like the map of France and I took a picture of it. Anyway, in front of Notre Dame is a round circle. It's a point where all distance is measured in France … at least it used to be, maybe it is still today. And it was interesting that my wife felt that this cloud of France, and where we were standing on this place, it's called Planet Euro. She felt the Lord was saying in this whole thing that there's a storm coming in France over Anti-Semitism, and the church, and the freedom of God's Spirit to move from point zero to any place in France will be measured by a correct understanding of God's eternal covenant with his people, the Jews. So, this was very personal and happened in a moment and went away. But there's kind of a reckoning coming. The French have very difficult times right now, and this whole thing like in England, they have difficulty in Parliament with how to deal with the Jewish people. This issue is coming up. Everybody is going to remember Notre Dame right now. Maybe people hadn't thought of it in years and years. But now it's in everybody's mind. So, there are spiritual things that are going on. Many of the pastors we dealt with have begun to appreciate the relationship between Christians and the Jewish people. So, there was a lot of positive things I saw happen there over the six years that we were there.
