(Psychic Triplet Trilogy, his death to the present ande is among the most popular Rabbis and philosophers in the Jewish canonRabbi Telushkin s portrait of Hillel is clear concise and well researched What I found especially enlightening is the way Telushkin compared and contrasted Hillel s beliefs with Threat Vector: INSPIRATION FOR THE THRILLING AMAZON PRIME SERIES JACK RYAN (Jack Ryan Jr Series

doubtful that the Jewish people would be as compassionate as open minded to new ideas or as welcoming to people who wish to become Jews themselves as we are in the 21st century I am grateful foris

Provocateur his shit and cites everything It can get repetitive at timese makes Trading Christmas his point about conversion over and over again but it covers a lot of ground He makes a strong argument for ethics being the defining characteristic of religiosity rather than ritual observance Highly recommended In general I enjoyed reading this book For one I must admit that my knowledge of the Jewish context of the New Testament even when I do not consider writers like this one to be very knowledgeable and accurate when writing about the New Testament because they take their ideas about Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul from mainstream Christianity which itself does not understand the relationship between Christianity and the law Likewise I appreciate this book in large part because it does not make the subject matter of the book or the author appear to be entirely sympathetic We see the author seeking to use the stories and examples of Hillel in order to promote a certain understanding of evangelism and Jewish identity in light of the demographic fears the authoras about the decline of acceptance of Judaism and identification as Jewish among many people who could see themselves as such This motive is so Never an outbreak honestly admitted and so transparently viewed though that it is impossible to think badly of the author for seeking to use the past especially the underappreciated past as a way for the Jewish community to strengthen itself in the present dayThis short volume of just a bit than 200 pages consists of eighteen chapters in four parts along with three additional appendices The author begins with six chapters that discuss some of the uniue teachings of Hillel I includingis role as a particularly ardent student 1 Pride his rise to leadership 2is belief that at least a fundamental aspect of Judaism could be explained by standing on one foot 3 Men his relationship with three converts 4is view of repairing the world through ethical conduct 5 and five traits of his that the author finds useful for contemporary Judaism 6 After that that the author finds useful for contemporary Judaism 6 After that are five chapters that examine the contrast between Hillel and Shammai the Talmud s most Famous Adversaries II Including Chapters About Their adversaries II including chapters about their approaches in interpretation as opposed to literalism I favor the latter generally 7 issues of thieves brides and lying as a virtue 8 issues regarding women 9 Shammai beyond the stereotype 10 and the discussion of the two Torahs 11 There is one chapter that discusses the relationship between Jesus and Hillel III 12 that points to issues of interaction with Christianity before the author closes with six chapters that look at lessons from the first century that apply to the contemporary situation of American Judaism IV including the need for outreach to others 13 the need for teachers to be patient 14 the need for students to uestion while they learn 15 the need to devote time to study even if one is busy 16 passionate moderation 17 and final thoughts about why we need Hillel than ever now 18 After this there are three appendices on additional teachings of Hillel i seven rules of Torah interpretation ii and Hillel s teachings in the Ethics of the Fathers iiiAdmittedly I do not agree with everything in this book In particular I find the author following Hillel it must be admitted made some terrible logic in assuming that because the written Bible includes obvious unwritten material as part of its context that the Oral Torah Isotopic Carbon held to by the Pharisees and their successors including the author is correct There is a leapere that deserves to be contested concerning the authority of the scribes and Pharisees and Orthodox rabbis in contradicting scripture through their The Robotics Primer (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents Series) human traditions and in disregarding the authorities that Godad set over them as well as disregarding the authority of God when He Himself came as a man to rebuke and correct them in the person of Jesus of Nazareth Likely an examination of these issues is likely not to be armonious and easy but #it does suggest that the approach of the author in praising Hillel shows a certain blind spot to uestions # does suggest that the approach of the author in praising Hillel shows a certain blind spot to uestions transmission of tradition in the Talmud that like the analogous issue in Islam concerning Hadiths 1 deserves to be uestioned and dealt with openly1 See for example. Rominent rabbi and teacher in the Land of Israel during the reign of Herod Hillel may well ave influenced Jesus The Eyes of the Dead his junior by several decades In a provocative analysis of both Judaism and Christianity Telushkin reveals why Hillel's teachings about ethics as God's central demand andis willingness to encourage the process of conversion began to be ignored in favor of the stricter and less inclusive teachings of is rabbinic adversary ShammaiHere is a bold new look at an iconic religious leader. Strife against what the Bible labels as Pharisees it is almost certainly referring to Pharisees or ex Pharisees from the School of Shammai Even before e became a Christian Paul would Calebs Tempting Mate (Saber Chronicles havead many differences with ABC his fellow Pharisees from this school which would be the dominant influence in Judaism until the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD The School of Hillel The school of Hillel was far liberal and its founder was renowned for placing people and justice at theeart of Judaism whereas Shammai stressed strict observance of religious laws While Hillel s followers acknowledged that the Jews were God s special people they willingly accepted Gentile converts to Judaism in the belief that the God of Abraham allowed all to worship Him who would turn from idolatry When you read about Hellenistic Jews or about Jews with Greek names this was the school whose rabbis would typically Odd Man In have accepted these Gentiles into the Jewish faith Soon after the time when Jesus at age 12 was in the Temple astonishing the priests withis wisdom Hillel died and was eventually succeeded by Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale his grandson Gamaliel who was Paul s tutor Modern day Judaism traces its roots to the teachings promoted by the followers of Hillel who survived the destruction of Jerusalem and began codifying their teachings around 200 AD Hillel was so wise that even two sayings we commonly attribute to Jesus were supposedly coined by Hillel beforeis death and were being uoted by Jesus in the Gospels These were the Golden Rule along

interacting positively with the Pharisees Nicodemus or the rich young rulere is probably interacting with Pharisees from the school of HillelAn example of the differences between Hillel and Shammai can be seen in the many cases where the Pharisees watch Jesus to see if He will Carlyle Marney heal someone on the Sabbath We can reasonably surmise that these are Shammaiites by the fact that the school of Shammai viewed attending to a sick person on the Sabbath as work while the school of Hillel viewed this as a good deed that was permissible on the Sabbath Another example of the struggle over Jesus between both schools is seen in John 916 Therefore said some of the Pharisees probably from the school of Shammai This man is not of God becausee keepeth not the Sabbath day Others probably from the school of Hillel said How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles And there was a division among them Difference betwn error sin A sin is a wrongful act that one knows is wrongful at the time of its commission An error is a wrongful act that is committed at a time when the person does not know or Shameful has not yet realized that such an act should not be committedThis distinction is
