A farewell post.
I know I’ve been on hiatus for months and months, but I’ve decided to make it permanent.
Narrowly avoiding being kicked out of the house has given me a lot to think and worry about, so I’m going to take the time to focus on sorting out that mess, my academic goals, and my religious future as well. (The road to conversion is a long one and I still haven’t quite found my place yet.)
I won’t be deleting this blog, but I won’t be adding things to it, either (except maybe to the “Orthodoxy on Film” page I created).
Thank you, Tumblr, for being - by turns - an inspiring and maddening place. I may return one day, but not in this incarnation.
I wish you all well.
marxistswithattitude said: have you read or do you know of any good books on rashi, his life and work, etc?
That’s an excellent question. I haven’t read any, and up until recently the only works of which I knew were Elie Wiesel’s book and some animated movie. The only biographical book in our library is Maurice Liber’s Rashi which was published around the turn of the century. I have no idea if any of this is good stuff, though. Sorry!
No more Jewishism.
How are Christians different from Jews, you ask? The Jewish Bible is like the Christian Bible, except it’s Jewish. Also, the ancient Jews thought their one god could beat up all the other puny gods like the golden calf which wasn’t even a god at all. The Jews were smart, which made the Christians even smarter later on when they said, “No more Jewishism.”
"The Jewish Bible is like the Christian Bible, except it’s Jewish."
I guess we’re a rip-off of the Christian Bible, you guys.
