Childbirth customs in Orthodox Jewish traditions. (1/63)

OBJECTIVE: To describe cultural beliefs of Orthodox Jewish families regarding childbirth in order to help family physicians enhance the quality and sensitivity of their care. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: These findings were based on a review of the literature searched in MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Science Abstracts (1984 to present). Interviews with several members of the Orthodox Jewish community in Edmonton, Alta, and Vancouver, BC, were conducted to determine the accuracy of the information presented and the relevance of the paper to the current state of health care delivery from the recipients' point of view. MAIN MESSAGE: Customs and practices surrounding childbirth in the Orthodox Jewish tradition differ in several practical respects from expectations and practices within the Canadian health care system. The information presented was deemed relevant and accurate by those interviewed, and the subject matter was considered to be important for improving communication between patients and physicians. Improved communication and recognition of these differences can improve the quality of health care provided to these patients. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings rooted in different cultural views of childbirth and the events surrounding it can adversely affect health care provided to women in the Orthodox Jewish community in Canada. A basic understanding of the cultural foundations of potential misunderstandings will help Canadian physicians provide effective health care to Orthodox Jewish women.  (+info)

To clone or not to clone--a Jewish perspective. (2/63)

Many new reproductive methods such as artificial insemination, in vitro fertilisation, freezing of human embryos, and surrogate motherhood were at first widely condemned but are now seen in Western society as not just ethically and morally acceptable, but beneficial in that they allow otherwise infertile couples to have children. The idea of human cloning was also quickly condemned but debate is now emerging. This article examines cloning from a Jewish perspective and finds evidence to support the view that there is nothing inherently wrong with the idea of human cloning. A hypothesis is also advanced suggesting that even if a body was cloned, the brain, which is the essence of humanity, would remain unique. This author suggests that the debate should be changed from "Is cloning wrong?" to "When is cloning wrong?".  (+info)

Suicide, religion, and socioeconomic conditions. An ecological study in 26 countries, 1990. (3/63)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Relative risks are frequently assumed to be stable across populations but this may not apply in psychiatric epidemiology where sociocultural context may modify them. Such ecological effect modification will give curved associations between aggregated risk factor and outcome. This was examined in connection with the ecological association between suicide rates and an aggregate index of religiosity. DESIGN: Ecological study of associations between suicide rates and an index of religiosity, adjusted for socioeconomic variation. The effect of stratification of the study sample according to levels of religiosity, was examined. SETTING: 26 European and American countries. SUBJECTS: Interview data from 37,688 people aggregated by country. OUTCOME MEASURES: Age and sex specific (1986-1990) suicide rates. MAIN RESULT: Adjusted for socioeconomic variation, negative associations of male suicide rates with religiosity were apparent in the 13 least religious countries only (test for interaction F (1, 25) = 5.6; p = 0.026). Associations between religiosity and female suicide rates did not vary across countries. CONCLUSION: The bent ecological association was apparent only after adjustment for socioeconomic variation suggesting that, rather than confounding, ecological modification of individual level links between religion and male (but not female) suicide risk is the responsible mechanism. This concurs with micro-level findings suggesting that suicide acceptance depends not only on personal but also on contextual levels of religious belief, and that men are more sensitive to this phenomenon than women. In psychiatric epidemiology, relative risks vary with the exposure's prevalence. This has important implications for research and prevention.  (+info)

Y chromosomes traveling south: the cohen modal haplotype and the origins of the Lemba--the "Black Jews of Southern Africa". (4/63)

The Lemba are a traditionally endogamous group speaking a variety of Bantu languages who live in a number of locations in southern Africa. They claim descent from Jews who came to Africa from "Sena." "Sena" is variously identified by them as Sanaa in Yemen, Judea, Egypt, or Ethiopia. A previous study using Y-chromosome markers suggested both a Bantu and a Semitic contribution to the Lemba gene pool, a suggestion that is not inconsistent with Lemba oral tradition. To provide a more detailed picture of the Lemba paternal genetic heritage, we analyzed 399 Y chromosomes for six microsatellites and six biallelic markers in six populations (Lemba, Bantu, Yemeni-Hadramaut, Yemeni-Sena, Sephardic Jews, and Ashkenazic Jews). The high resolution afforded by the markers shows that Lemba Y chromosomes are clearly divided into Semitic and Bantu clades. Interestingly, one of the Lemba clans carries, at a very high frequency, a particular Y-chromosome type termed the "Cohen modal haplotype," which is known to be characteristic of the paternally inherited Jewish priesthood and is thought, more generally, to be a potential signature haplotype of Judaic origin. The Bantu Y-chromosome samples are predominantly (>80%) YAP+ and include a modal haplotype at high frequency. Assuming a rapid expansion of the eastern Bantu, we used variation in microsatellite alleles in YAP+ sY81-G Bantu Y chromosomes to calculate a rough date, 3,000-5,000 years before the present, for the start of their expansion.  (+info)

Acute otitis media caused by antibiotic-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae in southern Israel: implication for immunizing with conjugate vaccines. (5/63)

The potential coverage of antibiotic-resistant pneumococci causing acute otitis media (AOM) by 7-, 9-, and 11-valent conjugate pneumococcal vaccines was studied in southern Israel. A total of 876 cases of pneumococcal AOM were studied in the context of various clinical conditions. Of the isolates, 68% were resistant to >/=1 drug, 61% were resistant to penicillin, and 13% were resistant to >/=3 antibiotic classes. Antibiotic resistance and coverage by the various candidates were age and population dependent and were higher among those with a complicated clinical course, as indicated by recent antibiotic use and recurrence of AOM. The results suggest that, if efficacious, the conjugate pneumococcal vaccines can substantially reduce the occurrence of pneumococcal AOM in general and complicated pneumococcal AOM in particular.  (+info)

Talismans and amulets in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit: legendary powers in contemporary medicine. (6/63)

BACKGROUND: For centuries talismans and amulets have been used in many cultures for their legendary healing powers. METHODS: We asked the parents of every child (Jews and Arabs) admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit over a 2 month period to complete a questionnaire, which included demographic data on the patient and the family, the use of talismans or other folk medicine practices, and the perception of the effects of these practices on the patient's well-being. A different questionnaire was completed by the ICU staff members on their attitude toward the use of amulets. RESULTS: Thirty percent of the families used amulets and talismans in the ICU, irrespective of the socioeconomic status of the family or the severity of the patient's illness. Amulets and talismans were used significantly more by religious Jews, by families with a higher parental educational level, and where the hospitalized child was very young. The estimated frequency of amulet use by the children's families, as perceived by the staff, was significantly higher than actual use reported by the parents. In Jewish families the actual use of amulets was found to be 30% compared to the 60% rate estimated by the medical staff; while in Moslem families the actual use was zero compared to the staff's estimation of about 36%. Of the 19 staff members, 14 reported that the use of amulets seemed to reduce the parents' anxiety, while 2 claimed that amulet use sometimes interfered with the staff's ability to carry out medical treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The use of talismans in a technologically advanced western society is more frequent than may have been thought. Medical and paramedical personnel dealing with very ill patients should be aware of the emotional and psychological implications of such beliefs and practices on patients and their families.  (+info)

Poison exposure in children before Passover. (7/63)

BACKGROUND: Extensive cleaning of homes in Israel before Passover may result in increased exposure of children to cleaning substances. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the potential danger of Passover cleaning to children, and to study the risk factors in order to identify areas for prevention. METHODS: All cases of poison exposure in Jewish and Arab children under the age of 15 years reported to the Israel Poison Information Center during 1990-95 (n = 5,583) were analyzed for the 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after Passover. Poison exposures in Jewish children < 15 years old were studied in seven pediatric emergency rooms for the 2 weeks before and 6 weeks after Passover (n = 123). RESULTS: The IPIC data showed a highly significant 38% increase in the average weekly poison exposure rate for the 2 weeks before Passover compared with the remaining 10 weeks. Data recorded by the pediatric emergency rooms showed a twofold increase in cleaning substance poisoning during the 2 weeks before Passover compared with the following 6 weeks. The rise in exposures to cleaning substances was observed among children from secular, religious and ultra-orthodox families. In these exposures, the substance was found in open containers in 70% of cases. CONCLUSIONS: The extensive cleaning of homes among Jewish families in preparation for Passover poses the danger to young children of cleaning substance poisoning. Increasing public awareness, closer observation of children, and keeping these substances in closed containers should increase children's safety during this annual cleaning.  (+info)

Demographic characteristics and primary health care utilization patterns of strictly orthodox Jewish and non-Jewish patients. (8/63)

BACKGROUND: The importance of providing health care services that are acceptable to different cultural groups is widely acknowledged. Strictly orthodox Jewish communities have particular health care needs that reflect their religious teaching and beliefs. OBJECTIVE: To describe the demographic characteristics and health care usage patterns of the strictly orthodox Jewish population of Gateshead. METHODS: Registration and claims data were used in combination with encounter data from computerized and manual practice records. Jewish patients were identified and comparisons made between Jewish and non-Jewish populations registered at the same practices. RESULTS: The orthodox Jewish population was predominantly young (69% aged under 20). The birth rate in orthodox Jewish women aged 20-44 was much higher (294 per 1000) than non-Jewish women. Rates of uptake of cervical screening and childhood immunizations were significantly lower in the orthodox Jewish population. Uptake of breast screening and attendance at diabetic clinics did not differ significantly. The average number of consultations and home visits per annum was higher in Jewish than in non-Jewish patients. CONCLUSIONS: The demographic and health care utilization patterns of orthodox Jewish and non-Jewish patients in Gateshead are different. There are implications for the provision of primary care services, particularly with regard to preventative health care.  (+info)

Still others sometimes simply assume that ancient Jewish worship, as depicted in the pages of scripture, corresponds with contemporary forms of Jewish worship, and so imagine that rabbis today perform animal sacrifices in neighborhood synagogues. (This, of course, is not the case.). In my classes, I therefore emphasize that Judaism historically divides rather neatly into two obviously related yet fairly distinct forms, or versions: the form of Judaism practiced during the biblical era (which is the form depicted within the pages of scripture), and a subsequent form of Judaism which developed later, after the biblical era, and which is in some ways quite different.. The biblical-era form of Judaism focused quite heavily upon the practice of offering frequent sacrifices to God (which God himself had commanded). Jewish worship came to revolve around the Temple in Jerusalem, which was the only place on Earth where God had authorized the offering of such sacrifices. These ritual sacrifices could ...

According to Maimonides, (Isurei Biah 13:14) converts were accepted since the beginning of Jewish history, and the foreign wives of Jewish leaders - such as Samson and Solomon - were converts. Yet he says (Isurei Biah 13:15), that in the times of Jewish political power, such as the days of Kings David and Solomon, Batei Dinim (Jewish courts) did not accept converts who may have not had the right intention, and they had to wait and prove their intentions to be legally accepted.[11]. Nowadays, with the notable exception of some Syrian Jewish communities, (primarily the Brooklyn, NY and Deal, NJ communities),[12] all mainstream forms of Judaism today are open to sincere converts,[13] with all denominations accepting converts converted by their denominations. The rules vary between denominations, as does acceptance of some denomations converts by other denominations. For Rabbinic Judaism, the laws governing conversion (gerut) are based on codes of law and texts, including discussions in the Talmud, ...
From ancient times the Torah was regarded as a law code, though as incomplete, since the Torah is silent on many subjects [10], and therefore had to be supplemented with what tradition calls the Oral Torah, or Oral Law. This represented the possibility to reshape or reinterpret many of the archaic laws of the Torah, for example the well-known verse an eye for an eye was explained by the Oral Law as requiring monetary compensation: the value of an eye is what must be paid. [11]. According to Orthodox Jewish tradition, when God gave Moses the Torah... He simultaneously provided him all the details found in the Oral Law [12]. These were discussed by Jewish Sages in oral form in the so-called Tannaïtic period, named after the Tannaïm (Aramaic for teachers), the Rabbis of the time who laid the ground for todays Judaism. At the time of the Jewish War with the Romans there existed primarily two streams of Judaism, the Sadducees and the Pharisees, the latter surviving the war and therefore the ...

Tonight, at the dawn of 5769, we reaffirm our covenant - with God, with Torah, with the Land and people of Israel. So has our people gathered on this holy night for more years and in more lands than we can count. We are part of something larger than ourselves, stretching across space and time. We connect with ancestors who have welcomed the new year, here at Temple Beth-El and elsewhere, long before we were born. We unite with those we will never know, because their generations are yet unborn. We are links in the chain of a great religious heritage.. But what happens when we move beyond these inspiring thoughts? What answer do we give, when we are asked, What is the meaning of this tradition? What is this generations role in keeping Judaism alive? Why should we bother? Why bother?. Are we here for God?

This is the scylla and charybdis of liberal Judaism: inauthenticity and irrelevancy. And these two manifests themselves in much of liberal Judaism. I attend a Conservative synagogue, and I certainly see both of them. Many Jews my age (mid 40s) simply opt out of many traditional Jewish practices. They do not keep kosher, attend synagogue, celebrate many holidays, daven, wear tefillin, etc. The attitude of many of my friends is simply that it seems irrelevant, sort of silly, and a little strange to do these things. After all, God did not literally said to do these things, and there just does not seem to be a good reason to do so. And when they do do these things (for whatever reason), it lacks authenticity. So someone might to go synagogue (say, for a bar-mitzvah), but will not feel elevated by the davening, does not know what the Torah parsha says, and does not expect these things. They feel a little like a religious tourist, watching and even going through the motions without really participating ...

Sephardic Judaism is the practice of Judaism as observed by the Sephardi (Spanish and Portuguese Jews), Maghrebi Jews and Mizrahi Jews, so far as it is peculiar to themselves and not shared with other Jewish groups such as the Ashkenazim (German Rite). Sephardic Judaism does not constitute a separate denomination within Judaism, but rather a separate cultural tradition. Sephardim are primarily the descendants of Jews from the Iberian Peninsula. They may be divided into the families that left in the Expulsion of 1492 and those that remained as crypto-Jews, Marranos and those who left in the following few centuries. In religious parlance, and by many in modern Israel, the term is used in a broader sense to include all Jews of Ottoman or other Asian or African backgrounds (Mizrahi Jews), whether or not they have any historic link to Spain, although some prefer to distinguish between Sephardim proper and Mizraḥi Jews. Sephardic Judaism lacks movements such as Orthodox, conservative, or ...
Samson Raphael Hirsch (June 20, 1808 - December 31, 1888) was a German Orthodox rabbi best known as the intellectual founder of the Torah im Derech Eretz school of contemporary Orthodox Judaism. Occasionally termed neo-Orthodoxy, his philosophy, together with that of Azriel Hildesheimer, has had a considerable influence on the development of Orthodox Judaism. Hirsch was rabbi in Oldenburg, Emden, and was subsequently appointed chief rabbi of Moravia. From 1851 until his death, Hirsch led the secessionist Orthodox community in Frankfurt am Main. He wrote a number of influential books, and for a number of years published the monthly journal Jeschurun, in which he outlined his philosophy of Judaism. He was a vocal opponent of Reform Judaism, and similarly opposed early forms of Conservative Judaism. Hirsch was born in Hamburg, which was then a part of France. His father, though a merchant, devoted much of his time to Torah studies; his grandfather, Mendel Frankfurter, was the founder of the Talmud ...
Consider: Judaism has had a few more centuries to address literalism, which is now only adopted among a tiny fringe (e.g., the Temple Mount Faithful, who hold that the only way true Judaism can be practiced is to rebuild the temple and eliminate the Dome of the Rock/Al Aqsa Mosque). That extreme fringe in Judaism also refuses to accept as Cohens or Levites anyone whose claim is based on marriage or conversion: either one traces the genalogical line to Aaron through accepted steps, or one does not. Maimonides, and many other Jewish scholars reject that interpretation; the mainstream finds that absolutist stance silly. But then again, Judaism incorporates a history of oppression quite unlike Islam, and the responses of rabbis over the thousands of years has altered the strict codes entirely (no more stoning for adultery, none of that polygamy that David practiced, etc ...

Christians and Americans different from Japanese. But here too the core experiences were the same. There are obviously two sides of the story. One must look at both sides with careful eye and determine for they what they believe is true. This is where the idea of reincarnation comes in. Because it is 7 incorporated in so many religions, you find an answer to a question, which you truly want to know the answer to, and do not abandon your faith in doing so. Reincarnation is detected in many religions. Reincarnation is normally thought of as a Hindu philosophy and it is traced back to Hinduism, yet it can be found in Judaism, Christianity, and Buddhism and in many more religions. In Judaism, reincarnation is known as Gilgul. Though it has a different name it has almost the exact same meaning. Gilgul was a dominant teaching in Judaism for over three hundred years.

JUDIASM The oldest living religion of the Western world, and historically the parent of Christianity and Islam. Present-day Judaism is at once a culture and a religion and should be distinguished accordingly. As a religion, Judaism is the body of a permanent moral tradition, which has its roots in the Old Testament prophets, and its hopes in a forthcoming Messiah. As a culture, it is the Jewish people, many of whom are not descendants of Abraham, and among whom is a wide spectrum of faith and worship, yet a mysterious solidarity that is quite unique in the history of mankind. Modern Judaism may be conveniently divided along religious lines into Orthodox, Reform, and Conservative. Each of these forms builds not only on the Torah or Jewish Bible but also on the Talmud, which is the principal repository of Judaic tradition. Historically, Orthodox Jews are the oldest, reaching back to the synagogues in Palestine and Babylonia in the first century, and theologically they are the most conservative. At the
On the Catholic side, the Declaration of the Second Vatican Council on the relationship of the church to the non-Christian religions, Nostra aetate, can be considered the beginning of a systematic dialogue with the Jews. Still today it is considered the foundation document and the Magna Charta of the dialogue of the Roman Catholic Church with Judaism, so my tour dhorizon of the Jewish-Catholic conversation must begin there.It did not develop in a vacuum, since on the Christian side there had already been approaches to Judaism both within and outside the Catholic Church before the Council. But after the unprecedented crime of the Shoah above all, an effort was made in the post-War period towards a theologically reflected re-definition of the relationship with Judaism. Following the mass murder of the European Jews planned and executed by the National Socialists with industrial perfection, a profound examination of conscience was initiated about how such a barbaric scenario was possible in ...
To the sources, then. First, Judaism is both an historical and an ahistorical religion. Ahistorically, Jewish time is cyclical: the Sabbath comes every seven days, and our agriculturally timed cycle of holidays renews itself each year. This Judaism shares with other Earth-based religions. Historically, though, Jewish time is linear. We Jews tell stories of an ancient creation and hold hopes for a future redemption. We involve ourselves in history, in collective enterprises such as Zionism and individual ones such as righteous action on behalf of the less fortunate. For the Kabbalists, the cyclical and linear aspects of time represent the feminine and masculine aspects of Divinity, the power of Now and the trajectory of temporality. One of Judaisms central historical tenets is the belief in a Messiah, a redeemer who in some future time will change, or even end, history. Jewish beliefs about the Messiah have themselves evolved over time. Initially, the Messiah was seen as a purely ...
Judaism has always been a core piece of my identity, even though my practice and understanding have evolved over the years. I have great reverence for what we hold as spiritual. When the authorities of my tradition define the sacred in a way that violates the most elemental and life-giving forces, mothers and babies, then something is very wrong. That which is not ethical, cannot be spiritual. That is a basic Jewish tenet… It is Judaism that has taught me that reverence for life, the principle of pikuah nefesh, and the mandate incumbant upon all of us to distinguish (lhavdeel) between what is holy and what is profane. It is precisely these fundamental tenets of Judaism that have led me to conclude that circumcision is not holy in terms of Jewish ethics.… What is most satisfying to me is knowing that I have helped a number of parents, particularly Jewish parents, come to the conclusion that they can be good Jews and leave their baby intact.Miriam Pollack, Defying Convention: An Interview ...

In 1964 the (then young) historian Jacob Neusner published a paper in the Journal of Biblical Literature titled The Conversion of Adiaben to Judaism: A New Perspective. Neusner claimed that the account of Josephus about the conversion of Queen Helena and the Adiabenes ruling family to Judaism cannot reasonably be rejected, and he located Adiabene in ancient Assyria, in what is today called Armenia. He reminded his readers that the Queen was married to her brother Monobazus (which is apparently what royalty did in that part of the world) and that it was Monobazus who was first converted to Judaism. But he goes one step further, and asks what political motivation lay behind this conversion.. His answer is this: the Jews of the Near and Middle East in the first century were a numerous and politically important group and in Armenia, as well as in other areas, Jewish dynasts held power, if briefly...

A Canadian holidays and observances calendar is a useful tool for marketing or for inspiring blog post, newsletter content and social media ideas. Traditional holidays have been joined by many observances in Canada and internationally, all of which now enjoy more exposure via the Internet. Combined with famous Canadian birthdays and historical events, there is no shortage of inspiration. As a bonus, you may come up in searches for the holiday or observance in question.. Canadians Internet Business publishes a calendar of holidays and observances for Canadians each month (in the last days of the month before). This calendar includes Canadian and international holidays and observances, from the official, to the charitable, and on to the strange and unusual. Many of the observances have spilled into Canada from other countries to become virtually universal in their celebration ...
This article is another stunning example of the arrogance and ignorance of contemporary proponents of scientism and reductionist materialism.It is noteworthy that Rabbi Slifkin leads off his critique, with a derogatory title - When Rabbis Quack and a derogatory description of Rabbi Szmerla as a Vaccine Opposing Rabbi. The fact of the matter is that there are virtually no double blind placebo control studies comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated populations to unvaccinated populations. The few studies that have been done demonstrate much higher rates of morbidity and mortality in the vaccinated populations. Science and particularly medicine have been very wrong many times in the past. It was not long ago that Eugenics was accepted science, and was being promoted in the leading universities in the US. It was not an innocuous academic exercise, but led to legislative action resulting in the compulsory sterilization of over 60,000 US citizens.Edwin Black points out that ultimately the US ...
Mordecai] Kaplan was born in 1881 in the small town of Svencionys, in the Lithu-anian district of the Jewish Pale of Settlement in tsarist Russia. At the age of 8 he came to the United States with his family. Kaplans early religious education was traditional, but he attended public school and Columbia University where he absorbed a modern critical approach to religion and to the Bible. After ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1902, Kaplan served as rabbi of an Orthodox synagogue in New York until, in 1909, he was appointed dean of the newly estab-lished Teachers Institute of the Seminary and soon afterwards also made professor of homiletics, midrash, and philosophies of religion. During his more than fifty years on the faculty of the Seminary, he attracted a devoted student following and, at the same time, maintained an exten-sive involvement in Jewish communal activities.. In 1917 he became leader of the first synagogue to incorporate a broad range of cultural and recre-ational ...

On its face, this text is a simple directive for a practical matter - where is the proper place for the menorah to be placed. But those of us who take Rabbi ben Bag Bags advice to heart - Turn the Torah over and over for everything is in it. Look into it, grow old and gray over it, and never move away from it, for you will find no better portion than it - know that the simple explanation, the pshat, is just the beginning of our understanding.. A fundamental teaching of Judaism is, Kol Yisrael arevim zeh lazeh - every Jew is responsible for the other. Judaism is, first and foremost, a community. No Jew should live isolated from the rest of his community, nor should he be concerned with his own existence and survival. Each Jew is obligated to reach out to his fellow Jews. In this regard, placing our menorot on the outside of our houses symbolizes this essential lesson.. We bring our light to those who are still in the dark; we seek to enlighten those who have not as yet had the opportunity and ...
Via Guilt & Pleasure: During those years I wasnt a practicing Jew - I was a practicing Muslim. I had pretty much denounced Judaism, because of something ignorant and out of line my rabbi said to me at a very, very crucial time in my upbringing. As a youngster, I wanted to be a cantor, and possibly a rabbi - my course in Judaism was to be involved and enveloped in my religion. I was one of these kids who, even after my bar mitzvah, continued in Hebrew school. I loved reading the Torah, I loved learning about the Torah, but I had my boys, and we were listening to early hip-hop.. Rabbi Spielman, who was the rabbi at my congregation in Bayswater, New York, had seen me in the park, listening to hip-hop. He looked at me with such concern - Ill never forget it - and he said, I dont understand, I have so much promise for you, why you want to be a shvartzer so bad?. I was like, What the fuck did you just say to me? And he was like, Watch your language in my office. And I was like, Watch my ...

email print. Steven Greenberg. Seven years ago I wrote an anonymous article called Gayness and God. Then I was the closeted Rabbi Yaakov Levado. Today I am, as far as I know, the first openly gay Orthodox rabbi. While I have been out to family and friends for nearly a decade, last March I decided that it was time to come out publicly. I sat on pins and needles for a month waiting for the onslaught of attack and criticism. To my surprise, there was no public outcry. There were a few mean quotes here and there, but taken together the response ranged from cautious understanding to outright applause. Old friends and acquaintances, colleagues, and students came forward to offer their support and encouragement. In retrospect, the paralyzing terror that I suffered for more than twenty years had been a paper tiger.. A number of factors have made my coming out rather painless. First, in conscious and unconscious ways I engineered a life that would be clear of the worst dangers. I am not a pulpit rabbi ...

The Hebrew Bible is the religious scripture of Judaism, which has survived continuously from its origins in the Bronze Age (before 1000 BCE) into the modern world. It is also the foundation document of Christianity and Islam, the two most widespread religions in the modern world. As a literary text it is an incomparable world classic with vast influence. Judaism began within the matrix of Levantine religion but made a radical new interpretation of tradition. The Hebrew Bible has a great deal of mythology related to other Near Eastern myths, for example, Yahweh as a storm god living on a mountaintop, his slaying of Leviathan and Behemoth, and his creation of humankind from clay (the name Adam means clay). There is also nothing exceptional in terms of cult. Yahweh had a temple on one of his home mountains - Zion in Jerusalem - and received there the sacrifice of animals according to a fixed cultic calendar. But while Baal/Hadad had been the chief god worshipped in the Levant (polytheism) and ...

Understanding the changing concept of the deity from before Judaism (destructive) through Judaism (creative and also punitive) and onto Christianity (loving deity paired with devil) would be another useful step. Also examining how Greco-Roman and Nordic polytheistic concepts were incorporated into the European churches would be important to understanding how we got where we are. We need to understand the native African traditions that still influence large sectors of the Americas. How do these things shape our worldview and our choices? Likewise, the incorporation of natural morality as well as superstitions into religions can be linked to the time periods during which they originated.

The theology of murder. The ideological or religious roots of IS and like-minded groups go deep into history, almost to the beginning of Islam itself in the 7th Century AD.. Like Christianity six centuries before it, and Judaism some eight centuries before that, Islam was born into the harsh, tribal world of the Middle East.. The original texts, the Old Testament and the Koran, reflected primitive tribal Jewish and Arab societies, and the codes they set forth were severe, writes the historian and author William Polk.. They aimed, in the Old Testament, at preserving and enhancing tribal cohesion and power and, in the Koran, at destroying the vestiges of pagan belief and practice. Neither early Judaism nor Islam allowed deviation. Both were authoritarian theocracies.. As history moved on, Islam spread over a vast region, encountering and adjusting to numerous other societies, faiths and cultures. Inevitably in practice it mutated in different ways, often becoming more pragmatic and indulgent, ...

Much research recognises the clinical value of considering clients cultural context. Cultural competence may be considered the balance between sensitive practice and an awareness about particular cultural groups. Jewishness is a powerful influence on the majority of Jewish people, regardless of religiosity. Jewishness incorporates more than Judaism, for example, it includes Jewish history, ethnicity and culture. This research aims to help therapists work with Jewish families by familiarising them with aspects of Jewishness, in order to gain insight to the lived experience of contemporary, British, Jewish families, so as to consider the potential clinical implications of Jewishness and develop cultural competence. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight British-born, culturally, rather than religiously, Jewish mothers aged between 30 and 39. The interview transcripts were analysed using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis methodology. Ten themes (^entity, Tradition ...
The Head of the Religious Education Department at the Ministry of Education, Dr. Fauzi Al-Gharyani has announced the coming back of religious schools starting from next school year (2015/2016).

Did you catch that? Reform Jews are worse than holocaust deniers. Who needs Nazis in the streets when we have the ultra-Orthodox to hate us (without ever knowing what Reform really is, just like many of the Nazis know Judaism only from false stereotypes like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion). Hatred built on fake news and fake information is not new, folks; it has long been the domain of the ignorant, uninformed, and more importantly, those who do not want to be informed.. The current alt-Right and neo-Nazi - hell, Nazi - movements are bringing this all back to America. I met Shmuel Gonzalez when he recently gave a talk to the San Fernando Valley Historical Society on the community of Boyle Heights. This was an ethnically mixed community east of DTLA that - in the days of red-lining - brought together Jews and Latinos and Russians and Japanese and Blacks and all sorts of ethnicities into a loose coalition that worked for the rights of workers and the rights of people. Those Jewish Community ...
Gender-based distinctions may feel unnatural and wrong to many women. Some women feel they possess both masculine and feminine qualities; some have androgynous traits. The arbitrariness of gender-based privilege in exercising priesthood is illustrated in one example from the late 1980s. A former missionary elder underwent medical tests and was discovered to possess the complete reproductive and sexual organs of a female beneath a superficial, non-functional male organ. She had surgery to restore femaleness. Her temple marriage was annulled. It was decided that her priesthood would not be revoked, but she was told she could not exercise it. It was also decided that the priesthood ordinances she performed on her mission, including several baptisms, confirmations, and blessings, would stand as valid ordinances. When she was presumed to be male, she was allowed to exercise priesthood. People accepted her authority, felt the spirit of God, and considered her administration of saving ordinances to be ...
Arguments and Analysis Violence that dishonours Judaism and threatens Israel (Adam Ognall, The Jewish Chronicle) The Price Tag phenomenon has forced Israel to ask hard truths, not least in August after a mob of Jewish teenagers attacked Arabs in Jerusalem, and when three 12-year-olds were arrested following a firebombing that left six Palestinians injured. After these incidents, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said it was a microcosm of a national problem that could endanger Israeli democracy. The time has come for us to stop covering up… This is a shared responsibility. …But the responsibility does not lie solely with the state. Questions need to be asked about how Jewish children have been taught to hate. Where are the authorities and moral voices in their lives? Have their parents, teachers and rabbis done enough? While some settler leaders have spoken out, others have remain conspicuously silent. Indeed, a number of rabbis and community leaders have been caught inciting violence. As ...
The Jewish counterculture of the 1960s, a movement of religious revival, was characterized by two main themes. The first was a rejection of the conventional synagogue and a commitment to a less formal and more intimate Jewish community that came to be known as the havurah. The second was the critique of American Judaism for being devoid of meaning and authentic religious experience. The Jewish counterculture aimed to rediscover Jewish learning and piety in general, and to revive an interest in Jewish mysticism and spirituality in particular. In the past decade, this rediscovery of Jewish spirituality has become a new force in American Jewish life-the Jewish Renewal movement.. Jewish Renewal has deeper roots in the eighteenth century Jewish pietist movement of Hasidism. Like Jewish Renewal today, Hasidism posed a social and religious challenge to the rabbinic establishment of the time, and it was a reemergence of the age-old tradition of Jewish mysticism. In late twentieth- century America, ...
After a year hiatus, I returned with my wife, Dr. Hilary Nieberg Baskin, to volunteer to lead Shabbat Shuvah and Yom Kippur 5778 Days of Awe in one of the highest WUPJ (World Union for Progressive Judaism) congregations, Adat Israel (www.adatisrael.info).

Follow us on Twitter: @BaylorUMedia Media contact: Terry Goodrich, (254) 710-3321 WACO, Texas (March 12, 2015) - Baylor Universitys Honors College will welcome Stephen Chapman, Ph.D., for a lecture on historical interpretations of the Bible at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 17, in Miller Chapel. Chapman, an associate professor of the Old Testament at Duke Divinity School, will present a lecture titled, What is the Use of History? The Bible and Historical Criticism. Some scholars of the Old Testament see it as simply an ancient writing, whereas others say it serves as an authority for the religions of Christianity and Judaism, said Barry Harvey, Ph.D., professor of theology in the Honors College and lecture organizer. Chapman will discuss how the academic study of Scripture does not take away from its inherent authority, but rather enhances the use of these texts in worship and teaching. After majoring in religious studies at Yale University, Chapman served as a legislative assistant to a member ...
Last month, CJCUC published on its website, a groundbreaking statement on Christianity by Orthodox rabbis. Most reactions to the statement were positive and welcoming, yet some agenda-driven persons have distorted the meaning of our statement to advance their agenda.. Breaking Israel News has covered the controversy and allowed CJCUC officers to put the statement in perspective. The statement rests on the firm foundation of Halakhah (Orthodox Jewish law) and precedent. The statement was made by Orthodox scholars, all of whom are fully committed to obeying all norms, statutes, and principles of Halakhah. Jewish law prohibits Eidut Sheker-bearing false witness against another. It forbids maliciously imputing incorrect agendas as well as condemning others without first approaching each person honestly and asking, What did you say and why did you do that?. When the statement was released, Rabbi Riskin stated that the real importance of this Orthodox statement is that it calls for fraternal ...

Firstly, the use of religion based wars, imposing/establishing religion based rule of law itself is wrong, and deviates from OT/NT. The violation of OT/NT/Jesus on part of Muhammad on practically all matters means that Muhammad invented a new religion that merely makes a poor imitation of Judaism/Christianity. NT validates itself by repeatedly quoting OT. The continuity with the revelation of God of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob/David is lost with Muhammad. The more Nadir Ahmed distances himself from OT/NT, the more he is self-refuting. His religion then hangs in mid air with no basis/foundation. Nadir uses extremely poor exegesis by depending on few select verses of the Quran and the Bible. A good exegesis takes into account the whole picture. We have before us, the history of actions/beliefs/doctrines/laws proclaimed and acted on by Muhammad and his companions (Sam did a great job of showing what they are). And we have the history of Jesus and his disciples (and the actions/beliefs/doctrines/laws they ...
Religion in the ancient Near East was closely tied to place and politics. Deities were associated with particular places, such as cities and eventually nations. Temples functioned quite literally as the gods house, where the god resided in the form of a cult statue. Priests and followers fed, clothed and cared for the deity in a series of rituals and offerings. Chief among the gods adherents was the king or city-ruler. As builder of the temple and chief official in the cult, the king had a special relationship with the god. This association between place, deity and royalty made religion a powerful factor in defining group identities in the ancient Near East.. Ancient Near Eastern religions were polytheistic, recognizing and worshipping more than one deity. Biblical monotheism, the concept of a single god with universal authority, stands out as a unique development in Ancient Israel. In modern times, Christianity, Judaism and Islam are all monotheistic religions. Hinduism is a major ...
Spain Table of Contents Spain, it has been observed, is a nation-state born out of religious struggle between Catholicism and, in turn, Islam, Judaism, and Protestantism. After centuries of the Reconquest, in which Christian Spaniards fought to drive Muslims from Europe, the Inquisition sought to complete the religious purification of the Iberian Peninsula by driving out Jews, Protestants, and other nonbelievers. The Inquisition was finally abolished only in the 1830s, and even after that religious freedom was denied in practice, if not in theory. Catholicism became the state religion in 1851, when the Spanish government signed a Concordat with the Vatican that committed Madrid to pay the salaries of the clergy and to subsidize other expenses of the Roman Catholic Church. This pact was renounced in 1931, when the secular constitution of the Second Republic imposed a series of anticlerical measures that threatened the churchs very existence in Spain and provoked its support for the Franco ...

Opal Khamsa Necklace. Pendant Measurements 0.6 X 0.45. Sterling Silver Pendant and Necklace. The hamsa, also romanized as khamsa or chamsa, is a hand-shaped amulet popular in Judaism. The hamsa is often incorporated in jewelry, as a defense against the evil eye. The Hamsa is also mentioned in the Kabbalah and withing the Cabala Book, Sefer Hayetzira. The Khamsa also stands for nonviolence, abstinence from injury, harmlessness, the not causing of pain to any living creature in thought, word, or deed at any time. The hamsa is popular as a charm most often worn as a necklace. Naomi Jewelry is proud to have this Hamsa necklace in stock. ...
The Shift of the Ages has, finally, occurred. Today, at 5am, I could use 25% of the powre in our world against Moloch, who only has 20%. Let that sink in.. Moloch is the real, power name of the Devil or Satan. He is also the real name of Allah and Jehovah. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are ALL called the religions of the Book, meaning they are all related to each other via the Old Testament. Abraham is the father of the Jews through his son, Isaac and, also, the father of the Arabs/Muslims through his son, Ishmael. For Christians, the Old Testament is part of our Bible.. So, who is this Moloch and how does he fit into this story? Remember, when Abraham was asked, by God, to sacrifice his son, Isaac? Abraham was so relieved that he did not have to sacrifice Isaac, but, supposedly, he substituted a lamb instead. Who is this God who was demanding Human, Child sacrifice? His name is Moloch and you can read all about him; he is the ancient God of Child Sacrifice and Abraham was sacrificing to ...
It is important to state that the gods who threaten to bring chaos to the entire cosmos are not inherently evil in these traditions, however, and they are indeed gods (which Satan is not within early Judaism and Christianity). Yet the role of the chaos-monster as opponent or adversary of the hero-god and the centrality of the battle between the two (combat myth) which ends in triumph for the hero are, in many respects, at the heart of Satans story and his function within early Jewish and Christian apocalyptic worldviews.. Perhaps the most well known case of this mythology is the Babylonian story of Marduks slaying of Tiamat, the chaotic sea-monster and mother of all gods, whose husband, Apsu, had plans to do away with her noisy children, the rest of the gods. (As chaotic sea-monster, Tiamat is comparable to the Israelite Leviathan or the Canaanite Yamm). Marduk then uses the corpse of Tiamat to create the world as we know it. You can read that story in the Enuma elish (When on high) ...
Regarding religion in SFF (or fiction in general), I dont have a problem with religion as characterisation, i.e. if a book happens to contain characters who happen to be religious. However, when a novel starts to engage in lengthy theological discussions, I quickly check out, because I simply dont like lengthy discussions of theology or philosophy in my fiction. This is also why Im reluctant to give Ada Palmers Too Like the Lightning a try, because the excerpt at Tor.com made me worry that there would be a lot of discussion of philosophy and religion via the sensesayer character. Can anybody whos read it tell me if the excerpt was representative in that regard?. Another thing that annoys me are mentions of religion in worlds where this makes no sense, e.g. Christians in secondary worlds, where there is no reason why Christianity should exist (and normally there are no Jews either, just Christianity magically evolving without Judaism). Simon R. Green is guilty of this in his (otherwise ...
The words Forbidden fruit stand as a metaphor (an image). The metaphor comes from the book of Genesis in the Bible. There Adam and Eve are thrown out of Paradise because they eat from the tree of knowledge.[1] Most often, people thought the fruit was an apple. This is a wordplay of Latin language word for apple, malus, which can mean both evil and apple. The Bible does not say what kind the fruit is. In Judaism the fruit is believed to be either a grape, a fig, a citron or wheat. Most scholars say that the type of fruit is not forbidden, it was just the fruits of that particular tree that were. In general, the term can also refer to something illegal or immoral to do. It might also be dangerous. Many times this is about sex outside of marriage. This is an update on the story of Adam and Eve. The question of what was the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and what was the tree of life is answered inside the text itself. The tree of knowledge was the serpent who resided in the middle of the ...

Jesus spelled it out clearly that he knew NOT. And as to calling GOD Almighty Father, and that Islam denies that GOD Almighty is an ACTUAL FATHER to anyone, in Islam GOD Almighty is called:. 1- Rab - Lord, Father (you are the Rab of your home for being the husband and the father).. 2- Wali - Guardian.. In the old Aramaic and Hebrew, GOD Almighty was called what-is-equivalent-to-Islam our Rab and Wali. But that doesnt make GOD Almighty our actual Father. This is exactly as Judaism metaphors such as idolatry is equivalent to spiritual adultery. No Jew is actually married to GOD Almighty to actually commit a personal marriage-adultery against GOD Almighty! Yet, the Jews use metaphors like these. Islam came to straighten all of this out and to set the record straight that GOD Almighty has no son and no daughter. Otherwise, why would GOD Almighty torture us to Hell if we were His perfect sons and daughters?? No imperfect being could be an actual son of GOD Almighty (and no being is the son or ...

The tradition of creating beautiful ritual items goes back over three thousand years when the Jews were in the desert and young Bezalel was entrusted with the task of producing religious objects of unparalleled beauty and perfection for the Mishkan the holy dwelling place of G-d. Ever since, creating attractive ritual items is an expression of pride in the Mitzvot and a reflection of our love of the values, traditions and practices of Judaism. In recent years, Jewish artists most of them living in Israel - are creating magnificent collections of Jewish ritual items for Shabbat and Holidays, for the home and for the Synagogue, for oneself or as gifts. Judaica items today includes jewelry, wall hangings and other items that beautify the home. Using contemporary materials and art techniques, these artists have given a modern twist to traditional ceremonial items. A leading Israeli Judaica artist in the field is Ester Shahaf who lives and works in the northern rural town of Binyamina. AJudaica takes ...

Christianity is a derivative memeplex (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme), the child of Judaism. An important Jewish meme is the belief that they are Gods chosen race and all non jews are goy, cattle to herded and killed. This superiority belief is the source of Zionist manipulation. No one can deny that America is propping up Israel and the two are conspiring in attacking Islam. In other words, the Christian memeplex allied itself with the Judeo memeplex that is attacking the Islam memeplex. Memes are competing in the psychic space and war is spilling out on the physical plane. Each memeplex is trying to dominate and obliterate the other memes, all are fascist because of their intolerance for outside thoughts. The source of fascism is religious fundamentalism, it is worldwide, growing and it is the force driving the New World Order fascist police state. We see this illustrated in christian art, the belief that Jesus controls the earth. The idea that humans mus ...
Description: This volume collects previously published and yet unpublished articles by the New Testament and rabbinic Judaism scholar Friedrich Avemarie, who died in October 2012 unexpectedly. Founded on a great familiarity with rabbinic literature and a distinct theological interest in the New Testament, the articles provide much important stimulus for the issues involved: rabbinic martyr-theology, rabbinic and New Testament soteriology, the parables of Jesus, the historical background of Acts, Paul s teaching on redemption in discussions on the so-called New Perspective on Paul, the role of Israel in Pauline theology and issues of salvation history and free will in Paul. Five articles are published here for the first time.. Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Mishnah, Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature, Greco-Roman Literature, Early Christian Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Literary Approaches, Theological Approaches, Dead Sea ...

Belief in demons goes back many millennia. In ancient Homeric times, a demon was usually a benevolent being, more or less interchangeable with a god (or, alternatively, an intermediary between men and gods). The Zoroastrian faith taught that there were 3,333 demons, some with specific dark responsibilities such as war, starvation, sickness, etc. In ancient Babylon, Demonology had an influence on even the most mundane elements of life, and the numerous demonic spirits were given charge over various parts of the human body. Greek Neo-Platonic philosophers such as Porphyry and Iamblichus claimed that the world was pervaded with spirits. Judaisms doctrines about demons and angels were influenced by Zoroastrianism, as well as part of the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition passed down from Adam, Noah and the Hebrew patriarchs. The Jewish Talmud declares there to be 7,405,926 demons, divided into 72 companies.. ...
The first full-length presentation of Jewish life, history, and culture in California from the Gold Rush to the twenty-first century. The nations thirty-first state emerged early as one of its most diverse as people immigrated to the west. Californias indigenous tribes were forced off their lands first by Spanish settlers, then by the arrival of gold miners from every corner of the world. Because of its Catholic missionary history, Gold Rush California did not experience a more exclusive eastern-style Protestantism. This permitted more rapid and inclusive acculturation. California Jews, unlike their eastern counterparts whose arrival often followed that of European Protestants, were often among the first settlers to establish a west coast community. Jewish immigrants to California took advantage of its physical environment, ethnic diversity, and cultural distinctiveness to fashion a form of Judaism unique in the American experience. California Jews enjoyed unprecedented access to political ...
In other times and eras God was viewed as a female, such that, were such cultural biases reversed, the worship of God as a giant man in the sky, as found in Islam and Judaism, would also be considered idolatry. The Trinity of Catholicism is considered idolatrous, as are the many Hindus Gods. Under this law, the precepts of Buddhism would be illegal, since Buddhism is designed to recognize and produce the God within, and to thus treat people and other sentient beings with dignity and respect, as Godly entities. Pantheism, of course, or the recognition of the Divine in all creation, would also be illegal. People who erect beautiful graven images, even without intention to worship them, will also be subject to punishment. It is also forbidden to buy products from idol-worshippers, such as incense or health food from Hindus, if they are used in idol-worship. Bending down in front of an idol or picking up a brick and saying, This is my God, makes a person liable for (capital) ...

This being said witchcraft is something that many but not all Wiccans practice. It is not Wicca. Witchcraft covers a broad range of thoughts, ideas, and activities to be narrowly defined to what these three definitions have stated that it means. Wiccans do work magic, through the use of rituals, charms, and spells to name a few of the methods that they use but they are not generally used in the malevolent terms that as is inferred by these definitions.. Perhaps a more practical use of the term witchcraft would be to view witchcraft as some of the online Wiccan dictionaries define it. They define it loosely as a religion that is influenced by pre-Christian beliefs and practices which acknowledge and use the existence of magic as well as the deities and the natural cycles of life. Witchcraft uses this knowledge and these skills to bring about change.. Often referred to as the oldest religion, witchcraft predates Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism. Called the Old Religion, ...

Christians preferred to bury the dead rather than to cremate the remains, as was common in Roman culture. The early church carried on Judaisms respect for the human body as being created in Gods image, and followed their practices of speedy interment, in hopes of the future resurrection of all dead. The Roman catacombs and Medieval veneration of relics of Roman Catholic saints witness to this preference. For them, the body was not a mere receptacle for a spirit that was the real person, but an integral part of the human person.[82] They looked on the body as sanctified by the sacraments[83] and itself the temple of the Holy Spirit,[84] and thus requiring to be disposed of in a way that honours and reveres it, and they saw many early practices involved with disposal of dead bodies as pagan in origin or an insult to the body.[85]. The idea that cremation might interfere with Gods ability to resurrect the body was refuted by the 2nd-century Octavius of Minucius Felix, in which he said: Every ...
