Temple youth groups are the entry points for many young people into congregational life, and over the last several years, the Reform movement has set out aggressively to nurture the development of teen leaders not only for youth groups but also for congregations as a whole. A passage in the Torah, however, does reflect a biblical view of a fetus. The religion and culture of the Jewish people. The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People, and Its History (New York: Morrow 1991) was chosen here as an exemplary work of Jewish apologetics for three reasons: As a compendium of Jewish religious and cultural knowledge this book offers the critic the opportunity to address the major topics of Jewish apologetics in a consistent way and from the same source, intended to address the layman the work does not specialize too deeply or too exclusively in details of theological argument, though on the other hand, contrary even to other publications of the same author [ 27 ], the intellectual level and scholarly style of argumentation of this work seems to justify a reasonable discussion, as an influential American Rabbi Telushkin is comparably well-known and his text does not concentrate on a single one of the five main forms of today's Judaism, so this work may be viewed as sufficiently representative for the beliefs of most religious Jews.

Ephraim Mirvis (born 1956) South African-born rabbi and Talmudic scholar, Chief Rabbi of Ireland from 1985 to 1992. Tens of thousands of young Jews are anxious to participate in various causes of international assistance within a Jewish framework. That the only schools of which mention is made are Sabbath schools intended for adults and that, on the contrary, Jews were extremely eager to gain admittance for their children to Greek gymnasia--where quite obviously they would have to make compromises with their Judaism--indicates their scale of values.

If "women's work' is to be glorified (by those who have a problem with the feminist movement), why is it that the wealthy (OJ rabbi families included), will hire (at minimum wage) household help to do the cleaning, cooking and caring for the children - even when the mother is home full time? The Gemara elaborates on the discussions of the Mishnah, and was compiled around A. That sounds easy, but how do you define “work?” Rabbis and sages over the last 3500 years have continually debated this simply to try to figure out what is and what is not work that is or is not allowable on the Sabbath [ 6, 8 ].

Judaism is the religious culture of the Jewish people. New explanations of the Torah were devised in the 1st century AD by Philo of Alexandria. But while the Women of the Wall are mostly Reform and Conservative women who are fighting from outside the system, these high school tefillin-wearers are trying to work within a system to carve out a niche for themselves. We are integrated in the modern world and our halachic decisions reflect this integration.

Some women who wanted to become Conservative rabbis came to study at the seminary, and due to an unrelated academic reorganization effective with the 1974–1975 year, they were able to study in any class at their appropriate level. E., has granted married women the independent personality which the Judaeo-Christian West had deprived them until very recently. However, slightly different Halachos may be applied in some cases.

E. and the subsequent spread of Hellenistic culture, the repressive Jewish attitude intensified even more, as can be seen in Ben Sira, the Book of Jubilees, and the Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs. But yet another schism, the Reformation, would challenge some of its ideas. Since the scope of the influence of the rabbis covered every aspect of life, methodologically it would seem best to deal with the rabbinic material in each area as it is treated systematically below.
