If only some rich/popular man or woman would uncover 666isMONEY we could run advertisements in the New York Instances and conserve the planet. Here’s a comment I wrote on our regional newspaper website this morning:

Islam looks to be a lot more of a political philosophy than a religion . . . a bunch of fairy tales, Judaism &amp &quotSaint&quot Paul too, irrational fantasies, the concentration camp in Gaza, and so on. God need to be pissed at these morons. Jesus (if he existed) was the Logos or logic of God. (John one:one) This globe is doomed! The Muslims are keenly aware of their demographic advantage . . . and Israel considers this their #one problem behind Iran. (America is fighting for Israel, opium &amp oil.) &quotChristian&quot Zionists are the worst!

This was in response to NPR firing Juan Williams.

Somebody responded: &quotWhat in the globe are you smoking? Can I have some?&quot

Of all the Jewish thinkers that arose in the twentieth century, none stands out as revolutionary and as controversial as Mordecai Kaplan. Kaplan was paradoxical to say the least. He maintained higher levels of personal religious observance and in addition to his scientific studies at the Jewish Theological Seminary he also obtained conventional ordination. He served as an Orthodox rabbi for a quick duration and was also participated in the founding of the Youthful Israel movement.

For Kaplan Orthodox, Reform, and Conservative Judaisms are based mostly on the view that the important variations among Jews and non-Jews lie solely in the region of religious considered. For the aforementioned versions, the challenge of Jewish daily life in light of modernity is the suitable adaption of Jewish beliefs and practices -even as was mentioned in the situation of Neo-Orthodoxy.

For Kaplan the challenge of Jewish daily life in the twentieth century was based on far a lot more than the concern of Jewish religion. For Kaplan, Jewish faith is only one component in the life of a Jew that is challenged by modernity. Nevertheless despite his commitment to Jewish existence as recognizable to historically oriented Jews, his theological predilections had been this kind of that the fundamental nature of Jewish theological identity was transformed in his reconstruction of Judaism. His work “Judaism as as Civilization and The Which means of God in Modern day Jewish Religion” and the philosophy behind them highlight really different notions of God, Torah, and Israel when compared to classical Jewish perspectives. Yet while Kaplan was vilified by several Orthodox and last but not least excommunicated by the rabbis of Agudath Israel, not all his correct of center critics were prepared to totally dismiss if not the determination behind Kaplan’s restructuring or reconstruction of Judaism, the really problems he addressed

In his quest to define what Judaism is, Kaplan took situation with all the movements existent in his day. Even though acknowledging the “good results” of the Reform movement if in nothing else, preventing the movement of thousands of Jews in Western Europe and in the United States from abandoning Jewish identity, Kaplan noticed Reform Judaism as espousing a religious philosophy devoid of the which means of the Jewish individuals and its distinctive culture. Kaplan argued that Judaism reflected “Jewish consciousness” Judaism was the “heart of the Jewish folks.”

For Kaplan then, a Judaism based solely on the concept of ethical monotheism was unsustainable. Reform Judaism was asking religious Jews to be the emissaries of what was a religious philosophy. Furthermore the fantastic thinkers of Reform Judaism assumed that Jews had constantly embraced theological concepts that were innovative past that of other nations. Obtaining rejected a supernatural revelation as the source of this claim, Kaplan noticed inherent weakness in any try to appeal to background as the arbiter of this kind of a see.

  1. GRACIAS RABINO POR SER LUZ Y GUIAR A TODOS LOS QUE AMAMOS LA TORAH DE HAKADOSH BARUJ HU Y  AYUDARNOS A RETORNAR A LA  FE DE NUESTROS PADRES FELIZ JANUKA

  2. "Judaism"…is nothing outs that what the descendants(kenites) of Cain started it since they joined the hebrews (Judg 1:16; 4:11).
    Later on, they changed the scriptures (Jer. 8:8; Isai 29:16) When they became to be known as Scribes.
    They made the word of God. ..commandments of men. (Isaiah 29:13; Mat 15:7-9).

    So how…would ever know what really happened in the garden? If it was put upside-down.
    And telling us that even though there’s TWO…different stories in Gen. 1:26 and 2:7..of the Creation of man… Is still the same one???

    .
    Did the "god"..of the Torah, really killed everything that it moved in many cases like 1 Sam 15:3? Just because they were very bad people?
    How evil an infant can be? Let alone an animal.

    Without those "legends and tales" and many other books…people are just gonna invent tales, legends, myths to the empty lines of the Bible.
    Just Pure speculations, giving big credit to Hos. 4:6.

    Judaism. ..is just another religion, but unlike many others, this one has very little hope to be Saved following more than 600 laws!!@?

  3. try biblical folklore. One can take the knowledge of the holy bible and use it against that which you find in biblical hebrew stories. this is how one can learn to pray against the accursed.

  4. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU SACRIFICE FOR OF THE EXPANSION  OF THE TORAH  IN THIS MOADIN YOU HAVE  THE CANDLE LIGHT BARUJ HASHEM JAG SAMEAG JANUKA
