Family Wanted lHillel If Not Now When Jewish Encounters by Joseph Telushkin 2010This volume is theatest example of the evolution of Joseph Teluskin from a rather shallow popularizer to a profound Jewish thinker The two volumes of his planned three volume set on Jewish Ethics are also well worth reading This is a pretend biography of Hillel in fact we know very Keys to Tulsa little about Hillel on which to base any such biography The sparcity of the source material hased to all sorts of speculations regarding what Hillel s complete views are Secret Africa like some of which speculations have been very very different than Teluskin s present volume This volume is really an extended essay and declaration by Teluskin in favor of what might be called pluralistic Judaism Pluralistic Judaism is the view that there is no one absolutely indisputably view of the particulars of Jewishaw but that there are and always have been many competing views on virtually every uestion concerning observance Pluralistic Jews not only acknowledge that state of affairs but consider it as essential to an understanding of the Crush (Awkward, living character of Judaism which is principally centered around taking seriously such uestions and debating over them Those interested in that take on Judaism may want toook into the Shalom Hartman Institute the scholars of which have similar views This volume will have one of two fates It will be totally ignored by Jews my money is on this one or it will result in a bloody fight between fundamentalist and nonfundamentalist Jews Hillel s wisdom has continued to be studied by Jewish people from his death to the present and he 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 his conservative and traditional contemporaries This contrast highlights how مهارت در بازی زندگی liberal and progressive Rabbi Hillel s views are and how these ideas opened the door to Judaism for both his own contemporary common readers and those of the presentWithout Hillel it s 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 for his words he was a blessing to all of humanity Telushkin s writing is clear and concise easy to read without being simplistic Iove the chance to The Dragon in the Clock Box learn about my favorite figure in Jewish history There are points which may find disfavor among theegalistic or exclusive of thought but Hillel s inclusive and My Amazing Dinosaur (Tib Tumtum, loving approach to faith speaks to the heart of what is beautiful in Judaism It s very hard to know how to review this book because there were so many aspects of it that spoke to me We are fortunate I think to have Rabbi Telushkin with us in this ageI don t think I fully understood the extent to which our religion owes its modern manifestation to the teachings and philosophy of Rabbi Hillel I certainly didn t understand the extent to which I personally encapsulate so much of his belief and interpretation of Judaism and the Jewishife One would not need to be Jewish to gain from reading this but anyone Jewish who doesn t know Hillel well definitely will benefit from it I m adding some because the above just wasn t worthyI appreciated the explanation of there is no messenger in a case of sin for its historical applications not that they were mentioned in the bookThe discussion on willingness to hear alternative or conflicting viewpoints really resonates today in so many aspects of The Nazi Revolution lifeThe e A friend who grew up in and is active as an adult in a Conservative Temple reallyoved this book and I think it may resonate strongly with people who share his background A major theme of the book is that the Jewish religious community should be Bloods a Rover (American Underworld Trilogy liberal in welcoming potential converts My personal experience as a convert to Judaism Reformfeltike the experience that Teluskin advocates so I didn t feel compelled by his argument that radical change from current attitudes back to the philosophy of Hillel is neededOf interest to me were two commentaries why Hille s reply to the potential convert was stated in the negative do not do onto othersrather than the positive do onto others easier to commit to consistent with the approach of the 10 commandments and the three core differences between Christian and Jewish theology God can forgive all sins vs God forgives sins against God you must seek forgiveness from the person for sins agains them meet evil with pacifism by turning the other cheek vs meet evil with resistance as in Moses killing the foreman who abused the slave know God only through Jesus vs any person can resistance as in Moses killing the foreman who abused the slave know God only through Jesus vs any person can God directly I was totally unfamiliar with Telushkin before reading this book but apparently he s directly I was totally unfamiliar with Telushkin before reading this book but apparently he s a sort of pop theology type writer There are some elements of that here the book is not technical at all but this book is not azy pop theology Telushkin knows his shit and cites everything It can get repetitive at times he makes his point about conversion over and over again but it covers a ot of ground He makes a strong argument for ethics being the defining characteristic of religiosity rather than ritual observance Highly recommended I was interested in reading this book because 1 I knew nothing of the relationship between Hillel and Shammai and 2 what religious teachings by Hillel influenced Jesus teachingsThe School of Shammai It is difficult to comprehend the structure of the theocratic government of Israel in the time of Christ But the most important group in Israel was the Pharisees who sat under the teachings of a rabbi named Shammai who founded his school shortly before Jesus was born Most believed among other things that the Hebrew descendants of Abraham were the only people beloved the Hebrew descendants of Abraham were the only people beloved God and that no other people were of value in His sight Salvation was thus only available to Jews and so in their early days the Shammaiites wouldn t even welcome Gentile converts to Judaism The school of Shammai which was politically proactive also had close ties to the infamous zealots a group of fanatics who favored armed revolt against Rome It s critical to note that virtually every time you see Jesus or the apostles in strife against what the Bible abels as Pharisees it is almost certainly referring to Pharisees or ex Pharisees from the School of Shammai Even before he became a Christian Paul would have had many differences with his fellow Pharisees from this. Part of the Jewish Encounter series What is hateful unto you do not do unto your neighbor That is the whole Torah all the rest is commentary Now go and study This is the most famous teaching of Hillel one of the greatest rabbis of the Talmudic era What makes it so extraordinary is that it was offered to a gentile seeking conversion Joseph Telushkin feels that this Talmudic story has great relevance for us today At a time when religiosity is euated with ritual observance alone when few Jews seem. Hillel AUTHOR Joseph TelushkinHance that Jesus earned from Hillel one of the earliest teachers to coin the golden rule see above Telushkin has an obvious motivation in writing this book it s the uestion of whether Judaism should allow converts or whether it should deter them and if it should allow them what it should expect from converts Telushkin worries that Judaism may become a weak voice in public Cooking Light Lazy Gourmet life if there are too few Jews so heooks to Hillel who as you can see above was extremely open to converts Hillel Arise let anyone in and didn t expect too much Telushkin sees Hillel s motivation as unconditionalove of people given enough study they Archies Americana, Vol. 1 ll be observant don t worry But the book is about so much than the convert uestion There s much toearn from Hillel and in turn from the Torah I ve once heard the Torah described as 10% original text and 40% arguments between various scholars on that text then another 50% arguments around the first arguments The story of the House of Hillel and the House of Shammai fits right in there two competing schools of Torah study with their own interpretations one humanistas The Book Thief long as it makes things better for people one muchiteral Talk to Me let s follow theetter of the Silver Mortal (The Gracen Chronicles, law There s a great view ofife there one that takes nothing at face value where everything needs to be discussed and nothing is the way it is because it has always been Educating for the New World Order like this Everythingoses flexibility once it becomes encodedIt isn t simply the answer that is prized it is the argument itself the culture of disputation the wrestling with the truthI m a big fan of Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock learning forearning s sake and Hillel gave me some fuel for my convictionHillel is most famous as a teacher but the Talmud makes it clear that his ability to teach anyone was connected to his ability to The Character Of An Upright Man learn from anyone The knowledge attributed to him by the Talmud has a uasi magical elementike the wisdom of Solomon who we are told knew the Mr. Malcolms List language of the birds and the beasts All creation was for Hillel a subject worthy of study and capable of imparting wisdom Everything in this view has been created by God and is therefore worthy of study worthy of compassion Which is why in the Talmud nothing botanical or zoological was alien to Hillel But also why it would not be sufficient to say of Hillel that nothing Jewish was alien to him Nothing human was alien to him and this insight only served as a bulwark for his Jewish faithIeave you with this great uoteKnowledge is not static If you don t keep reviewing and adding you decline Which is why Hillel s advice to the would be convert Go and study applies to all of us and at all times 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 GURPS Conspiracy X 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 theaw Likewise I appreciate this book in Just One Golden Kiss 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 inight of the demographic fears the author has about the decline of acceptance of Judaism and identification as Jewish among many people who could see themselves as such This motive decline of acceptance of Judaism and identification as Jewish among many people who could see themselves as such This motive so 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 including his role as a particularly ardent student 1 his rise to eadership 2

his belief that 
belief that east a fundamental aspect of Judaism could be explained by standing on one foot 3 his relationship with three converts 4 his 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 there are five chapters that examine the contrast between Hillel and Shammai the Talmud s most famous adversaries II including chapters about their different approaches in interpretation as opposed to Phantom Encounters literalism I favor theatter generally 7 issues of thieves brides and Eat Your Way Through the USA 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 thatook at My Dirty Janitor Book 4 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 theyearn 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 Stories from Spain / Historias de España logic in assuming that because the written Bible includes obvious unwritten material as part of its context that the Oral Torah held to by the Pharisees and their successors including the author is correct There is aeap here that deserves to be contested concerning the authority of the scribes and Pharisees and Orthodox rabbis in contradicting scripture through their human traditions and in disregarding the authorities that God had 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 ikely not to be harmonious and easy but it does suggest that the approach of the author in praising Hillel shows a certain blind spot to uestions of transmission of tradition in the Talmud that Hillel shows a certain blind spot to uestions of transmission of tradition in the Talmud that the analogous issue in Islam concerning Hadiths 1 deserves to be uestioned and dealt with openly1 See for exampl. Rominent rabbi and teacher in the Land of Israel during the reign of Herod Hillel may well have influenced Jesus 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 and his willingness to encourage the process of conversion began to be ignored in favor of the stricter and ess inclusive teachings of his rabbinic adversary ShammaiHere is a bold new Broken Bear look at an iconic religiouseader.

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 iberal and its founder was renowned for placing people and justice at the heart of Judaism whereas Shammai stressed strict observance of religious Hatter 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 have accepted these Gentiles into the Jewish faith Soon after the time when Jesus at age 12 was in the Temple astonishing the priests with his wisdom Hillel died and was eventually succeeded by 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 before his death and were being uoted by Jesus in the Gospels These were the Golden Rule along with the summary of the Law and the prophets Love God with all of your heart andove your neighbor as yourself Whenever you see Jesus interacting positively with the Pharisees Nicodemus or the rich young ruler he 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 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 because he 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 has not yet realized that such an act should not be committedThis distinction is important in understanding how men came to know the Law and how they treated others who were yet unenlightened1 Moses was the first to come to discover the Law he Paint the Wind learned the hard way through error Moses first important error was smiting an Egyptian who was beating a Jew Moses act of vengeance was driven by his passion anger he met violence with an even greater act of violence Moses second important error was striking the rock when God had commanded him to speak to it Should call this one a sin because Moses knew he was acting wrongfully The choice of speaking asking versus striking coercing appeared to be unimportant because ited to the same outcome the rock gave water What Moses had not considered was the rock s point of view By striking the rock Moses forced it to give water Had he spoken to it he would have created an opportunity for the rock to do a Mitzvah a good deed Moses error was in depriving the rock Of An Opportunity To an opportunity to to be helpful2 Hillel discovered the fundamental rule of human conduct That which is hateful to you do not unto your fellow man Hillel understood why adherence to this rule would Wayne lead to social stability but Hillel probably did not know what action to take when theaw was being violated in an important way In other words Hillel stated the conditions that had to be met for mankind to The Perfect Resume live in peace but he did not have a plan for bringing the nonconforming members of society into compliance3 Jesus was the first man to solve the problem of what to do when Hillel s Law was being violated He publicized the acts that caused one man to hurt another and he made clear that the victim himself included was being hurt However he scrupulously avoided the act of vengeance and he taught his disciples to do the same turn the other cheek Jesus using Hillel s Law as a guide and introducing the use of nonviolence as a tool to effect social change Jesus restated Hillel s Law from the negative form Do not do unto another that which you would not want done to you to the positive form Do unto others as you would have them do unto youThis is just a small part of this biography Excellent analysis of the House of Hillel as well as the House of Shammai its family foil I didn t agree with all the author s conclusions concerning the similaritiesdifferences between Yeshua and Shammai but his historicalog and method of presenting those facts and sources is admirable I have used this book as a research source for my own books in the past and will The Centurion Code likely use it again The failure of Christian education to help New Testament readers put the dialogues andetters into historical context is remedied by sources such as Rabbi Telushkin s If students of the Christian Bible understood the dynamics presented in Hillel it could help them decode The Pharisees dialogues in the Gospels and attribute statements and attitudes to the proper House A most pleasant surprise to Christian readers would be how many of the Pharisees from the House of Hillel welcomed a non Jew to worship the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob Additionally Christian readers would have a new context for Pharisees one that did not include words Antropologia da Criança like outward observance hypocrisy self righteous or pretentious Just as denominations would hate to be judged as a whole by the worst examples of the faith Judaism should be evaluated according to the facts instead ofazy theology There was an incident involving a Gentile who came before Shammai and said to him Convert me to Judaism on condition that you will teach me the entire Torah while I stand on one foot Shammai pushed the man away with the building rod he was holding Undeterred the man then came before Hillel with the same reuest Hillel said to him That which is hateful unto you do not do unto your neighbor This is the whole Torah all the rest do unto your neighbor This is the whole Torah all the rest commentary Now go and study Extremely interesting uasi biography of Rabbi Hillel a Babylonian Rabbi who was only a few decades older than Jesus in fact there s a good Concerned with bringing Jewish teachings into the world and when than 40 percent of Jews intermarry Judaism is in need of of the openness that Hillel possessed two thousand years agoHillel's teachings stories and egal rulings can be found throughout the Talmud; many of them share his emphasis on ethical and moral iving as an essential element in Jewish religious practice including his citing the concept of tikkun olam repairing the world as a basis for modifying Jewish Canned law Perhaps the most
