    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFIt'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 Jewish life 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 v

    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFExcellent 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 historical log 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 likely use it again The failure of Christian education to help New Testament readers put the dialogues and letters 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

    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFA friend who grew up in and is active as an adult in a Conservative Temple really loved 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 liberal in welcoming potential converts My personal experience as a convert to Judaism Reformfelt like 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 pa

    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFHillel'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 liberal and progressive Rabbi Hillel's views are and how these ideas opened the door to Judais

    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFI was totally unfamiliar with Telushkin before reading this book but apparently he's generally 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 lazy 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 lot of ground He makes a strong argument for ethics being the defining characteristic of religiosity rather than ritual observance Highly recommended

    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFTelushkin's writing is clear and concise easy to read without being simplistic I love the chance to learn about my favorite figure in Jewish history There are points which may find disfavor among the legalistic or exclusive of thought but Hillel's inclusive and loving approach to faith speaks to the heart of what is beautiful in Judaism

    PDF/EPUB Joseph Telushkin ´ Hillel Epub ê ´ hillel mobile, Hillel PDFIn 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 author has about the decline of acceptance of Judaism and identification as Jewish among many people who could see themselves as such  This motive is so hones
