From Tradition to Commentary: Torah and Its Interpretation in the Midrash Sifre to Deuteronomy (Judaica: Hermeneutics, Mysticism, and Religion;Talmudic Dual Morality Governing Jews and the GOYIM: “It Depends on Whose Ox is Gored”,

The double standard is systematic. It appears not only in the Talmud, but in other rabbinical literature. By way of introduction, author Steven D. Fraade, Mark Taper Professor of the History of Judaism at Yale University, writes, “There the context is the interpretation of the mishnaic rule (BABA QAMMA 4:3) that an Israelite is not culpable if his ox gores the ox of a gentile, whereas a gentile whose ox gores that of an Israelite must pay full damages regardless whether or not the gentile’s ox was a habitual gorer.” (p. 52). >>more...

The Other in Jewish Thought and History: Constructions of Jewish Culture and Identity (New Perspectives on Jewish Studies);Rabbinic Dual Morality Governing Jews and Gentiles: A Real Issue. Futility of Exculpations,

 Podwojna moralnosc -double morality  Of this anthology, I focus on the scholarly work of Steven D. Fraade. He squarely faces the double standard on Jews and gentiles, and does so without evasion or apologetics. He notes that, “There are surprisingly few critical treatments of the topic of Jewish attitudes to non-Jews in ancient times.” (p. 159). One commonly hears of the dual morality in the Talmud [PODWOJNA MORALNOSC], but the reader quickly learns, from this work, that it is true of other rabbinical literature as well. >>more...

Jewish People, Yiddish Nation: Noah Prylucki and the Folkists in Poland

Saturday, February 11, 2017
This book is much more than a biography of long-term Yiddishist activist Noah Prylucki (1882-1941). It offers a broad sweep of Jewish thinking from the latter part of the 19th to the first part of the 20th century. Owing to the fact that it is based primarily on Yiddish newspapers, it brings a wealth of information to light that would otherwise be inaccessible to the non-Yiddish reader >>more...

Tradition and Crisis: Jewish Society at the End of the Middle Ages

Tuesday, August 16, 2016
This work is mostly about the internal affairs of Jewish communities in Europe. Owing to its exhaustive detail, I focus on a number of items relevant to Jewish-gentile relations. [My review is based on the 1993 hardback edition, by Jacob Katz and Bernard Dov Cooperman.] >>more...

Ustroj sie zmienil, antypolonizm trwa

Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Wiele wskazuje na to, że polityka finansowa ministerstwa kultury jest bardzo dokładnie przemyślana, tak jak trzon kadry, łącznie z ministrem, to są osoby odpowiednio wyselekcjonowane. Chodzi o to, żeby z jednej strony kultury polskiej (zwłaszcza kultury wysokiej) maksymalnie nie wspierać, a z drugiej, by tę, która pozostała, rozsadzać od wewnątrz kulturą różnych mniejszości albo zalewać najgorszego gatunku popkulturą. To są reguły niepisane, ale można je zrekonstruować, obserwując efekty. I jest to bardzo sprytne, bo gdy ktoś oponuje, to nazwie się go nacjonalistą albo antysemitą. Tymczasem ministerstwo kultury w Polsce jest odpowiedzialne przede wszystkim za kulturę polską.
