Amber Tamblyn Criticized For Complaint About Hasidic Jews …

Posted By on March 9, 2018

Actress Amber Tamblyn faces backlash after Tweeting that Hasidic Jews in New York City are targeting her.

The former Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star wrote Sunday that a Hasidic man in a van attempted to hit her in Brooklyn as she pushed her baby in a stroller.

But it was her follow-up post that sparked the controversy.Tamblyn wrote that this is not the first time a man from the Hasidic community in NYC has attempted to harm me or other women I know. Any woman riding a bike through South Williamsburg can attest.

While some people on Twitteragreed with her, others interpreted her complaint as an unnecessary generalized attack on Hasidic Jews.

Neither Tamblyn nor a rep immediately responded to HuffPosts requests for comment.

The actress defended herself in a tweet of support to a man who said that he, too, had been targetedby Hasidic Jews. Tamblyn, whose husband, actor David Cross, was raised Jewish, wrote she will not be bullied or intimidated by anyone who wants to twist my words.

HuffPost wasnt able to immediately get word from the NYPD on whether Tamblyn had filed a complaint about the van driver.

Actress Amber Tamblyn Goes to War Against Hasidic Men

Actress, author, poet, and film director Amber Tamblyn (The Ring, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Blackout) on Sunday launched a brief Twitter campaign against Williamsburg Hasidic Jews.

If anyone in Brooklyn near the intersection of Washington Ave and Atlantic Ave just saw a Hasidic man in a grey van try to hit a woman and her baby in a stroller as she crossed a crosswalk, honking and touching the stroller with the cars bumper, please DM me. That woman was me, Tamblyns first tweet went. The incident she described supposedly took place around 2 PM Sunday.

It was followed some five hours later by this message:

Thank you everyone for your kind words of support today. We are fine. But this is not the first time a man from the Hasidic community in NYC has attempted to harm me or other women I know. Any woman riding a bike through South Williamsburg can attest. I hope this guy is caught.

We stayed with the story for a while, because, frankly, the notion of Hasidic Jews hunting for young women to harm did not strike us as being real.

Several in the Twitter community expressed similar doubts, and some accused Tamblyn a racist, like one user who argued, I dont understand your tweets. For someone who is so politically woke, I dont understand your generalizations of the Hasidic Jewish community. It sounds racist.

This isnt the time to attack Orthodox Jews, lets find these specific men and deal with it that way, one user suggested, apparently accepting the actress claim that she had been attacked, but doubting that theres a Hasidic conspiracy against good-looking young women walking the streets of Williamsburg.

A third user said, The Hasidic community is after @ambertamblyn? This doesnt add up. Still no mention if the police are investigating. I believe the incident occurred, but to say youre a specific target?

And: I dont understand the descriptive either. Arent these specific men and not an entire Orthodox community of faith? I dont get the hypocrisy.

Amber Tamblyn is married to comedian David Cross.

In the past, the actress tweeted that actor James Woods tried to seduce her and her friend when they were sixteen, and took them both to Las Vegas. Woods has no personal ties to Hasidic Jews, we looked.

Hasidic Movement Bans EMT Volunteering on Penalty of …

The Gur Hasidic movement in recent days has issued a decree that any member who volunteers in EMT services or the police would be barred from sending his children to Gur institutions, Kikar Hashabbat reported Tuesday, noting the decision followed a feverish discussion.

According to sources in Gur, this prohibition is directed mainly at young yeshiva students under the age of 30, who have been joining Hatzalah, MDA, and auxiliary police in large numbers, apparently without the approval of the movements spiritual leadership.

Parents who are members of Gur will be asked in the coming days to sign a commitment form declaring that they are not volunteers in any of the above organizations, and that if they are found to be serving their local communities in such manner, they would be expelled from the movement.

This move is viewed as extremely unusual, and out of character for the Hasidic community at large, which honors and cherishes its volunteers in rescue organizations and some choose community service as a substitute for enlisting in the IDF.

Deputy Health Minsiter Yakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) is a senior member of the Gur movement.

Amber Tamblyn under fire for blasting Hasidic Jews on Twitter

Posted By on March 7, 2018

Amber Tamblyn claims a Hasidic man almost ran her over in Brooklyn on Sunday while she was pushing her baby in a stroller and now people are blasting her on Twitter after she chastised men within the Jewish faith and accused them of targeting women.

This is not the first time a man from the Hasidic community in NYC has attempted to harm me or other women I know, the actress tweeted.

Any woman riding a bike through South Williamsburg can attest, she said. I hope this guy is caught.

The alleged incident happened sometime before 2:30 p.m. in the shadow of the Barclays Center.

If anyone in Brooklyn near the intersection of Washington Ave and Atlantic Ave just saw a Hasidic man in a grey van try to hit a woman and her baby in a stroller as she crossed a crosswalk, honking and touching the stroller with the cars bumper, please DM me, Tamblyn said. That woman was me.

Its unclear if the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star called police to report the driver or what happened on Sunday. Authorities dont have any information on the incident.

Very shaken but yes, were okay, Tamblyn said.

Hours after the close call, the actress went back on Twitter and proceeded to make her claim about men in the Hasidic community. Several people called her out on Sunday night, with some saying her assumptions were racist.

This isnt the time to attack Orthodox Jews, one person tweeted. Lets find these specific men and deal with it that way.

Another said, I dont understand your tweets. For someone who is so politically woke, I dont understand your generalizations of the Hasidic Jewish community. It sounds racist.

The posts got numerous likes and prompted others to speak out.

The Hasidic community is after @ambertamblyn? This doesnt add up, tweeted user @KatyGreen1234. Still no mention if the police are investigating. I believe the incident occurred, but to say your a specific target?

Another user said, I dont understand the descriptive either. Arent these specific men and not an entire Orthodox community of faith? I dont get the hypocrisy.

Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmud Collection (50 vols.) – Logos …

Posted By on March 6, 2018

The Talmud is a compilation of rabbinic discussions that comprise the foundation of Jewish law and tradition.The Talmuds are structured as expansions and commentary on the Mishnah,anearlywritten compilation of the Oral Torahproduced circa 200 CE.These Talmudic commentaries onJewish morals, values, customs, history, and biblical interpretation had previously been passed down orally. To preserve these oral traditions, the Talmuds wereassembled in written form. Two different Talmuds were produced by Jewish scholarsThe Jerusalem Talmudor Yerushalmi circa 400 C.E. andthe Babylonian Talmud or Bavlicirca 600 C.E. Logos is proud to offer the English translations of both The Babylonian Talmud and The Jerusalem Talmud, edited by the celebrated scholar of Judaism, Jacob Neusner.

Neusner is the author and editor of over nine hundred books, and his translations of Hebrew and Aramaic works are studied all over the world. These insightful translations provide a gateway into two of the most complex works ever created, and lead to enhanced understanding of rabbinic Judaism.

Adding the Talmuds to Logos Bible Software will provide the opportunity to link more references than almost any other set of books we havent yet produced. To pick one example, in the books that Logos Bible Software has already digitized, there are more than 6,500 references to the tractate Berakhot, which is just one of the 49 tractates included in the Talmuds! With Logos Bible Software, these volumesare easily searchable, Scripture passages appear on mouse-over, and all cross-references are linked to the other resources in your library.

Jacob Neusner is Research Professor of Religion and Theology, Bard College, and Senior Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Theology at Bard College. He has published more than nine hundred books and innumerable articles, and he is editor of The Dictionary of Judaism in the Biblical Period and the five-volume Encyclopaedia of Judaism. He has also served as President of the American Academy of Religion, and was appointed as Member of the National Council on the Humanities and the National Council on the Arts.

Bavli | Judaism | Britannica.com

Posted By on March 6, 2018

Bavli, also called Talmud Bavli, or the Babylonian Talmud, second and more authoritative of the two Talmuds (the other Talmud being the Yerushalmi) produced by Rabbinic Judaism. Completed about 600 ce, the Bavli served as the constitution and bylaws of Rabbinic Judaism.

Read More on This Topic

Judaism: Palestine (c. 220c. 400)

(or Jerusalem) Talmud and the Babylonian Talmud, reflecting the study and legislation of the academies of the two principal Jewish centres in the Roman and Persian empires. (Talmud is also the comprehensive term for the whole collections, Palestinian and Babylonian, containing Mishna, commentaries, and other matter.)

Several attributes of the Bavli distinguish it from the Talmud Yerushalmi (Palestinian Talmud) and must be considered in accounting for its great intellectual influence. First, the Bavli shows how practical reason can work to make diverse issues and actions conform to a single principle. Second, it shows how applied logic discerns the regular and the orderly in the confusion and disorder of everyday conflict.

The Bavli in its 37 tractates is entirely uniform, stylistic preferences exhibited on any given page characterize every other page of the document, and diverse topics produce only slight differentiation in modes of analysis. The task of interpretation in the Talmudic writing was to uncover the integrity of the truth that God manifested in the one and unique revelation, the Torah (both oral and written). By integrity was meant a truth that was unified and beyond all division. The message of the first document of the oral Torah, the Mishnah, was the hierarchical unity of all being in the One on high. Since the Bavlis authorship undertook precisely the same inquiry, the way that the Mishnah and the Bavli deal with the problem of showing the integrity of truth illuminates for the reader how the two dominant documents of Judaism set matters forth.

The Mishnahs version of the integrity of truth focuses upon the unity of all being within a hierarchy. The Mishnahs overriding proposition is that all classes of things stand in a hierarchical relationship to one another, and, in that encompassing hierarchy, there is place for everything. The theological proposition that is implicit but never spelled out, of course, is that one God occupies the pinnacle of the hierarchy of all beingto that one God all things turn upward, from complexity to simplicity; from that one God all things flow downward, from singularity to multiplicity. To state with emphasis the one large argumentthe metapropositionthat the Mishnahs authorship sets forth in countless small ways: the very artifacts that appear multiple in fact form classes of things, and, moreover, these classes themselves are subject to a reasoned ordering by appeal to this-worldly characteristics signified by properties and indicative traits.

The Bavlis version of the integrity of truth matches the Mishnahs theme of the hierarchical unity of all being with the Bavlis principle that many principles express a single onemany laws embody one governing law, which is the law behind the laws. However, the difference in the documents may be seen, in how, for instance, the Mishnah establishes a world in stasis: lists of like things, subject to like rules. In contrast, the Bavli portrays a world in motion: lists of like things form series, but series also conform to rules. The Bavlis paramount intellectual trait is its quest through abstraction for the unity of the law and the integrity of truth. That same quest insists on the fair and balanced representation of conflicting principles behind discrete lawsnot to serve the cause of academic harmony but to set forth how, at their foundations, the complicated and diverse laws may be explained by appeal to simple and few principles. The conflict of principles then is less consequential than the demonstration that diverse cases may be reduced to only a few principles.

Both Talmuds, the Yerushalmi and the Bavli, treat the same issues of the Mishnah, yet the second Talmud radically differs from the first, and the two Talmuds rarely intersect other than at a given Mishnah paragraph or Tosefta selection. This is not so surprising, for, despite the fact that the Yerushalmi is 200 years older than the Bavli, scholars do not believe the framers of the Bavli to have had access to the Yerushalmi during the Bavlis redaction. (Though some sayings known to the editors of the Yerushalmi also circulated among those of the Bavli.) Therefore, each Talmud pursues its own interests when reading a passage shared with the other. No substantial, shared exegetical protocol or tradition, whether in fully spelled-out statements in so many words, or in the gist of ideas, or in topical conventions, or in intellectual characteristics, governed the two Talmuds reading of the same Mishnah paragraph. The Bavli presents an utterly autonomous statement, speaking in its own behalf and in its own way about its own interests.

If we compare the way in which the two Talmuds read the same Mishnah, we discern consistent differences between them. The principal difference between the Talmuds is the same difference that distinguishes jurisprudence from philosophy. The Yerushalmi talks in details, the Bavli in large truths; the Yerushalmi tells us what the Mishnah says, the Bavli, what it means. How do the two Talmuds compare502266

The Yerushalmi analyzes evidence, the Bavli investigates premises;

The Yerushalmi provides an exegesis and amplification of the Mishnah; the Bavli, a theoretical study of the law in all its magnificent abstraction, transforming the Mishnah into testimony to a deeper reality altogether: to the law behind the laws.

Amber Tamblyn slammed for tweet saying Hasidic men attempted …

Amber Tamblyn was blasted on social media for tweeting Hasidic men have tried to harm her and other women she knew after she and her baby were almost hit by a van. (Reuters)

Actress Amber Tamblyn was slammed on social media for tweeting that Hasidic Jewish men in New York attempted to harm her after she claimed she and her baby were almost hit by a van in Brooklyn, NY, on Sunday.

Tamblyn tweeted asking for the publics help to track the driver, she described as a Hasidic man, after she and her infant child were almost hit.

Amber Tamblyn came under fire after for her tweet saying Hasidic men have tried to harm her in the past.(Instagram/@amberrosetamblyn)

If anyone in Brooklyn near the intersection of Washington Ave and Atlantic Ave just saw a Hasidic man in a grey van try to hit a woman and her baby in a stroller a (sic) she crossed a crosswalk, honking and touching the stroller with the cars bumper, please DM me, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star wrote. That woman was me.

In her following tweet, Tamblyn wrote Hasidic men in NYC have attempted to harm her and other women she knows in the past.

But this is not the first time a man from the Hasidic community in NYC has attempted to harm me or other women I know, Tamblyn tweeted. Any woman riding a bike through South Williamsburg can attest. I hope this guy is caught.

Social media users criticized Tamblyns tweets that appeared to target members of thereligious Jewish sect.Some of her followers said she was making generalizations about a large community of orthodox Jews.

A crowd of Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men gather.(Reuters)

I dont understand your tweets. For someone who is so politically woke, I dont understand your generalizations of the Hasidic Jewish community. It sounds racist, one person tweeted.

Lets be rational here, Amber Tamblyn. Firstly, I am so glad you and baby are ok! But to target the Hasidic community like that especially given the real antisemitism out there is generally irresponsible, a social media user tweeted.

You cant be both woke and a bigot. Choose one, another person tweeted.

Well, I am a proud Hasidic Jew. I never hit you with my car. I never attacked you. Why are you attacking me?! a person tweeted.

Tamblyn, 34, a prominent advocate of the Times Up movement, did not appear to call the police following the incident, TMZ reported. She has not immediately commented on the backlash.

Fox News' Nicole Darrah contributed to this report.
