That is a pretty profound statement. I would like to hear his ideas on J's personality. He may be in a lot of trouble now.

The 22nd prohibition is that we are forbidden from gaining benefit from any ornaments which were used to adorn an idol.1

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement,2 "Do not desire the gold and silver which is on them."

The Sifra3 explains that the coverings of any idol are forbidden, and bases this prohibition on G‑d's statement (exalted be He),4 "Do not desire the gold and silver which is on them."

One who transgresses this prohibition is punished by lashes.

The details of this mitzvah have been explained in the third chapter of Avodah Zarah.5

I'm almost done with Magician Master. But Talia still passed me, (book worm). The Mekemians won the war, although they had to close the rift, the convention that helps them go from different worlds. Macros the black, a sorcerer, died and Pug, Kulgan, and Arutha are looking for answers to why Macros closed the rift. The few Tzurani who got trapped in Midkemia stayed to live with the Humans instead of battling to the death (smart Tzurani). Stay tooned.
This is just too excellent.

There was a very moving story this week, about one of the competitors in the Invictus Games. He was a former mine specialist in the Royal Navy, who had suffered post-traumatic stress disorder. He was playing a match of wheelchair doubles tennis when he heard the sound of a helicopter overhead, and, traumatized, he froze. Immediately, his team mate went over to him, held him, spoke to him and got him to sing the song Let It Go, from the movie Frozen. And slowly he unfroze and together they went on to win the match.

It was a poignant reminder of a fundamental truth, that sometimes, alongside medical treatment, we need the touch of another to heal our pain.

Lately I’ve been thinking of how our era will be seen in retrospect. Every age worships something. Often it’s religion, but in the not so distant past it’s also been the nation, or the race, or the political ideology. The more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve concluded that what we worship today is the self. We seek self-esteem, self-respect, self-expression, and self-help. And it’s hugely liberating. But every form of worship has its downsides: in this case, anxiety, loneliness and depression. And it isn’t lifted by having lots of friends on smartphones and social media. It needs being together face to face.

The Talmud tells the story of a rabbi who was a faith healer. All he had to do was lay his hands on someone and they were cured. Then he fell ill and called for a friend to come and heal him. Why couldn’t he cure himself, asks the Talmud. And answers: because a prisoner cannot release themselves from prison. Sometimes self-help isn’t enough. It needs the touch or the word of an other.

That’s why community is so important. It’s where we meet face to face and give each other strength. It’s where people know who we are, and miss us when we’re not there. Community is society with a human face. It’s the redemption of our solitude.

Which is another reason to salute the Invictus Games and Prince Harry who created them. As the unfrozen tennis player said: the games gave him back his purpose and his pride. “I feel,” he said, “part of a team again, like I belong.”

God says about us in the Bible: “it’s not good to be alone.” A good society is a community of communities. Not just an array of selves.

Shabbat shalom,

The 20th prohibition is that the one whom the meisit tried to incite is forbidden from trying to acquit the meisit. Even if he knows of an argument in his favor, he is forbidden to mention it to him or to raise it himself.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement (exalted be He),1 "Do not show him any mercy."

The explanation of this is brought, "The verse,2 'Do not show him any mercy,' means that you may not raise an argument in his favor."

@jeffrey-siegel:


A Palestinian Christian leader demonizes evangelical Christians whom he described as "messengers in the service of the Zionist enterprise." Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem, a Palestinian Christian named Atallah No, said that "Evangelical Christians" or "Christian Zionists" are not "Christian" and that they "have nothing to do with the values ​​of Christianity."

The Archbishop further explained that there is no such thing as "evangelical Christians" or "Christian Zionists" in the Christian dictionary or the church dictionary. "They do not belong to Christianity, they have nothing to do with the values ​​of Christianity and the evangelical principles that always prefer to identify with the world's oppressed, they are closer to Judaism and Zionism and have no connection to Christianity."

"They are enemies of Christian values, and when they come to Palestine, they do not visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Church of the Nativity, but in the colonies located on our stolen land as a sign of solidarity with the occupation," the Archbishop said.

(The Greek Orthodox Church, together with other Orthodox Churches, remains a bastion of antisemitism/ -J.S.)



Wow! This is difficult to comprehend from folks who supposedly believe in the G-d of Israel. Or maybe they don't?
