JIMENA: Mizrahi and Sephardi Voices
"Ovid is a dancer and choreographer from aden yemen. She moved to israel as a girl in nineteen forty nine and became a founding member of the inbal dance. Company marguerite recorded her oral history for the gemina oral history project. In two thousand eleven gimenez stands for jews indigenous to the middle east and north africa region that jewish communities thrive in for over two thousand years until the twentieth century. When a million mizraki sephardi jews fled and were forced out of the land of their ancestors. The san francisco based gemina is working to preserve that rich heritage and history producer. Asala sunny poor recently sat down with sarah levin gimenez executive director to talk about some of the stories in the archive as well as their own family histories. A saw worked with sarah on the archives many years ago sayre you and i worked really closely together while i was in college My very first internship ever was with jim messina and working on this oral history project. I like to think that it's what really launched my love of storytelling. I wanted to start by asking you. Why do you think it's important to preserve these stories as told in the words of those who lived it. So i am so happy to be doing this with you a saul. I think that judaism as grounded and stories like that is the legacy of our people. That's the foundation of haha. That's the foundation of what it means to be jewish as passing on stories Were the combination of thousands of years of stories and in regards to gimenez oral history project We collected stories of communities of people who who hadn't been given a platform to share. They hadn't been given a microphone. They hadn't been given an opportunity to talk about what happened to them when they lived and fled countries throughout the middle east. North africa and their stories are an incredibly critical part of contemporary jewish history. And where we are. Today with establishment of the state of israel nineteen forty eight posts showa post arab nationalism and uprisings in the middle east and north africa there was a major disruption of over two thousand years of continuous jewish life in the middle east north africa. Kinda came to an end and that is a huge part of the jewish story. And we have this very unique opportunity to collect the stories from the people who lived through this historical moment in time and it was an honor to collect these stories and hopefully add them to the record of jewish

So that's two thousand thirteen just before down two thousand thirteen and just to give a little background of my generation. And i'm sure this younger generation and even older most of the people that converted a no logos the majority. Yeah from the early nineties you mean even now from from the two thousand years of alteration so most of the people that convert don't do muslim okay and i know people that went to hide studied in medina going.

Why I Love Rome
"Let's start the hour with three guides from rome. Who tell us what they love. Most about their city rome. It's the eternal city to one of the most romantic and popular destinations in the whole world but many visitors met with a harsh reality when they wander rooms. Ancient streets overcrowded sites chaotic. Urban seems unpredictable transit strikes. If you're not prepared. Rome can be a challenge. But many will agree with me that it's all worth it. Bernardo francesca russo and susanna perugini specialize in guiding american tourists around italy and. They've all made rome their home because they love their city. They join us now on travel. With rick steves to share their love of rome and share with us some tips on how we might enjoy it too you know. Francesca susannah bondar. Generate one so rome. I love history. And there's history every where you look. Francesca you're born and raised in rome. What's it like just to go to work. Surrounded by all that history. Sometimes i think about it that i can wait for the bus right by where julius caesar was stabbed to death. So i'm thinking that rome is a place where history goes from printed words on the page of a book to something. That's alive every minute of every day so you can feel it. Something had happened. Two thousand years ago happened right now. And there's layer after layer after layer. I mean there's like an archaeological dig isn't it but it's right before your very eyes. He has over two thousand years of history. Front is every single moment. Wherever you turn all at once pub is living in rome shape your outlook. I would say that most romans take it for granted. I think they gain a sense of how special the city is when they go elsewhere and they always find everything else so new so you become you become aware of how what it means to live with two thousand years of history once you leave it i think if you grow in it and you see coliseum every day when you drive to work in the sense you don't even see it any more than you might make a case that if you live in a land with very little with the shallow history. You don't appreciate history quite as much. i mean. The oldest building in my town is one hundred years old building a new town twenty times that could maybe if you live with things that are two thousand years old and every day i think you forget it and it just becomes something many conversations with my roman friends who say they've never been inside the coliseum where he could for take it for granted. Yeah but once you open their eyes to one thing then they understand and appreciate as well
The case for co-ops, the invisible giant of the economy | Anu Puusa [TEST]
"Wow i get to do that a lot around here. It's finally someone else's turn. So yes i happen to marital wonderful man named ted which is pretty rare in finland where i'm from. It's not a typical finnish name at. Aw trust me i myself. I'm a business professor. And i love teaching but you know what my students are fed up. They have really fed up. With the way the business is growing the environment and making wealth inequality was and putting money and profits above all else. And what really makes them mad is when i tell them about the cooperative movement the angry because once they understand how cooperatives they feel like a secret solution has been kept hayden before i tell you more about why cooperative sauce so great. I want to explain what they are. A corporate. dave is an organization that is owned by its members who are also its customer and decision maker and unlike most businesses where certain owners can buy more power and influence in a corporate day of every member has one vote which was the revolutionary idea back when the model was first introduced a regular mind not dimension a woman with no significant means or prestigious position in the society as an owner and partner in business on heard of perhaps it's still a bit revolutionary. Copa dave's exist in a sweet spot between the for profit and nonprofit worlds. They uniqueness is based on the idea of duality. They have two distinct but complementary roles on one hand they act like any other business and try to make money but on the other hand cooperatives are and do so much more they are scented enterprises run by and for then members and they tried to achieve economical but also social and cultural goes to benefit those members who are just regular people like you and me and what has happened for. Almost two hundred years is that cooperatives have proven to make decisions with a view across generations instead of quarter to quarter to benefit more people and wells in communities that might not otherwise attract investment while. Still being competitive and innovative. Sounds pretty good right. I guess that's why. At the end of a clause the other day student all red and chest up basically shouted at me of always been a straight a student. Done all the work read. All the books are now you telling me that all my life. I've missed hearing about a movement with this magnitude. I get this a lot. The organized corporate they've movement started in eighteen forty four with the russia's society of equitable pioneers. This was a group of weavers and artisans who are of desperation. Opened a store together to sell things that they could neither get nor afford alone. The cooperative movements from there and became a global phenomenon. Many of the modern day credit unions and farm credit systems. You see in. North america are descendants of the famous cooperative reiffeisen system in germany and here in finland. A man named hanis gephardt is considered to be the father of the finnish cooperative movement in the nineteenth century. He introduced cooperatives to help. People tackle debt poverty and unemployment. It turns out. This is the foundation opo country known for its democratic values high quality education and the happiness of its citizens and this line of impact of cooperative movement can be found in other places in the world to. I'm proud to say that invalided terms. Finland is one of the most cooperative countries in the world. We have about five point. Five million people who have over seven million memberships in cooperatives. That's run everything from groceries to banks each time. I stop at grocery cooperative. When i feel in my guest tank edo jointly owned restaurant. Stay at a hotel or buy clothes. Ohad west of i could bonuses. That can be up to five percent. And when i pay with bank card get an additional half percent off and i know that win. The copa davis doing well. It's not funding a single person's luxury vacation in the bahamas every year. A governance body comprised of elected representatives decides. How any operating surplus will be used. Some of the money will go back to the members. For example this year all consume the corporate dave boyer's caroline also or beco- or as we call it it's part of the group is the biggest corporate of croup in finland. They had a so close of two percent or members purchases and twelve percent return on money invested. When you add up the savings and the return my family received more than two thousand years back which is more than we spend on groceries in one month not to mention that across race above seven percent cheaper than its main competitor. i'm a member owner intrigue cooperatives and my husband has four memberships consumer a bank an insurance and water cooperative. We have two beautiful girls who are ten and twelve years old. And they're also member owners of the s group then. Memberships caused us one hundred euros. Each we want to pass on the legacy and teach them about the benefits of corporate gives early on and of course they're very happy about the yearly interest on cooperative capital. But it's just about us getting money back. It's about the greater good for our community. I'm not only talking about taxes and employment. Our consumer cooperative is the biggest employer in the area. I'm talking about support for young people. Sports arts university and cultural events for example as a member of the board of beco- or a few years ago we agreed to build a sports hall fully exa which is a nearby city here in the eastern part of finland belonging to our cooperatives operational area after we built it. The city signed a very long term rental agreement with us so financially investment made sense and of course it was a major gesture to the local people who not have proper facilities to do all kinds of sports in another case. We ended up rejecting the investment proposal regarding building a senior house downtown. The idea was very good one but we declined because it was the big hosting complex requiring a lot of capital with low expected investment return that would only serve a small part of the membership less than one percent of our over one hundred thousand members and therefore we decided against it
Own Your Future With Tony Robbins
"Tony a few weeks ago. I was lucky enough to be in a room with you. And just fifteen people and you shared. If i'm being honest some pretty crazy details about how this world we're living in is shifting. So can you share some of those details with fire nation in more importantly what you recommend we do about it three or four hours a couple moments. I think the biggest thing. You don't have to be a you know a brilliant to see that we are going through some major changes. The changes accelerating the way people look at life the way they work. They work their way. Think about families. All shifting was already happening because we have several ways that are heating. At one time we have a generational way. Baby boomers aging right millennials. Coming into a power. They've been raised differently. Make different decisions. We got that way that a gigantic were standing massively. Federal government usually quite about three point. Eight billion in taxes This last year. They've spent eight point two trillion s. Not the next six drilling. They're promoting its numbers that most people can never understand. I wanna take one second fire nation so you get it. When you get numbers that big we start using trillion and governments use the retrial billion. Or you member obama's mares billionaires even occur will sometimes use that price. You're not in the same universe millionaires and billionaires and certainly not true so let me explain a million seconds ago i want you to think in your own mind really make a decision. Don't just make me tell the answer. How long has it million seconds ago. Would you guess somebody will tell me. Twenty years to one hundred years we will say fifty days. The answer is twelve days. A million seconds to get perspective million in days million seconds would be twelve days ago. A billion seconds was thirty. Two years ago watch a trillion seconds is thirty two thousand years ago before man was known as man. We're almost saviors
Belgium's Sourdough Library
"Is where i get to introduce you to. Carl met. Who runs the sour dough library in belgium on the baker Confectioner and when i started to work for the company i started as a test baker in the lab. I immediately got interested by this. Though that i never seen before i i read about it and we had some theoretical explanation school about sourdot but to actually never made one so being a baker. You want to know more about what's going on in there and then you start feeding it. Then you see bumbling and it's alive it's like a pet when you big brentwood that it's so different than when you make breath just with yeast and then when you when you start getting into sour dough. Will you see that there is a lot of things that are undiscovered and so that that there is an amazing work that can be done so carl sounds. He was working in a test kitchen. Yeah and it's actually really funny because you know you'd think that like his he'd worked for some like artisanal bakery but like pure does the company that owns the sour dough library is just a huge industrial baking supply company and pretty early on they wanted to sell sour dough making supplies and so they started researching using a sample of sour dough from san francisco. Of course would this one. I have a very special relationship because it was my my very first cy widow. I saw my life. And so i started refreshing it then i i had to bake with it and then we decided to do a study on sour dough. And it's this one. It's a sour dough from ulta meurah in the south of italy and this is a sour dough that has been around for probably more than two thousand years. 'cause he has been described in a book from horatio was a roman poets
Nicolas Flamel and the Philosopher's Stone
"If you're a harry potter fan the name nicholas fla mel is probably bringing some bells for you. Nicholas and his wife. Paranoia are mentioned in jk rollings. I harry potter and the philosopher's stone. They're both over six hundred years old. Because in the novel nicholas has discovered a magical artifact that makes him immortal in the united states. this object is known as the sorcerer's stone but for simplicity. I'm gonna stick to the british term philosopher's stone now supposedly this stone is incredibly powerful legends about it have been around for about two thousand years. They say it has the power to turn any metal into gold. And it's connected to this beverage called the of life which keeps you alive forever. It's not super clear of the philosopher's stone makes the elixir. Or if it actually is the elixir or if the recipe for the stone is close enough to the elixir. That if you can make one you can make the other either way. The central idea is consistent. If you discover the philosopher's stone you can become immortal. Ancient accounts describe the stone. Bright red and it wasn't really a stone at all. it was actually more like a powder or a fluid something you'd add to a bubbling vile to create anything. You want and i do mean anything. See alchemists just trying to get rich and achieve immortality. They were trying to unlock the fundamental secrets of the universe. Like why lead is led and knock gold or why me and not someone else and the idea was that with a for stone you could transform anything or anyone into whatever you want it. And it's not like there's just one stone because according to out chemical tradition you can actually make a philosopher's stone so researchers weren't necessarily trying to locate one. They were trying to create it. Supposedly the closest anyone ever got was this guy named nicholas flannel.
The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer
"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about
Karaites: Bible Only, Please with Shawn Lichaa
"Is someone that we've wanted to have on the podcast for a long time. But we're trying to figure out the right place and we realized that we were starting this series on the bible. We thought this is the right place to have a discussion with somebody who is a leading voice within the community. That's a group of jews that basically it doesn't accept one of the key pillars of rabbinic judaism. Which is that at mount sinai when moses was given what we call the torah by god the written torah moses was also given an oral torah at the same time by god and that oral torah was preserved for hundreds and hundreds of years until some period after the destruction of the second temple when it was written down initially as the mishna and then over time in additional ways as what we call the talmud and the carrots represent a group of jews. That didn't believe that there was an oral tradition. Given at mount sinai that was if basically equal magnitude as the written torah in the bible that the written torah their written bible has a much more significant. Or perhaps i should say supreme significance in what we understand judaism to be what we understand god to one of the jews etc. The percentage of jews. That are carrots has waxed and waned over the course of the last two thousand years of jewish history. It was much much bigger in the middle ages. And of course here in america when we talk about the various groups of jews that there are people think about you know the nominations orthodox conservative reform reconstructionist renewal but often. Don't really think about carrots largely. Because it's a small community here in america and our guest today is working to preserve its traditions and make them available for study or consideration more widely. We're really excited to have this conversation today. With lisa who a leading voice in the carrot community he is a board member of the carrot juice of america and founder of the carrot. Press in the a press self-description they say our mission is simple. When kerry literature ceased to be commonly available the jewish world lost a tremendous amount of scholarship exegesis in diversity. Students have jewish theology and history lost access to a rich heritage and carrots themselves. Were no longer. The masters of their own intellectual heritage. The karaoke press aims to change all this and they publish a combination of translations of older care a literature as well as more contemporary ratings. Sean leash himself is the founder of a blue thread a jewish blog with a threat of right throughout and he speaks widely about carrot judaism at venues across america including synagogues jewish the library of congress the association of jewish libraries. And now judaism unbound so sean lee shia welcome to judaism unbounded so great to. Have you excited to be here. We're excited to have this conversation We've been talking about the bible in this series and it's interesting to now move from talking about the bible too. Well what people do with the bible. So i think that some of us have a very unsophisticated understanding of them and some of us have an extremely unsophisticated understanding of other. So i would say that. The thing that i know is basically that i think it's it's worth saying because i think people may say that says strange sounding word that actually in hebrew aramaic like kara means to read so as also a way of talking about the torah. So my understanding is that it's people who really don't believe that the judaism that emerges from the time after the bible is is accurate you know and so really what we should be doing is going back to the bible so now take me more sophisticated than that. There is judaism after the bible. And that judaism is correct. Now the question is like what does is and what does correct me. maybe i'd give you like one nuance to what you said. But it's a massive paradigm shift in what most people think about judaism. There is a written law and there is an oral law. Right so god. According to this form of gave the written torah and oral torah explaining it carrot judaism does not believe that god gave an oral law carried using god gave a written torah. And that's what the carrots follow. Now we also have the entire hebrew bible. That's tanaka and we use that as a source of our laws and understanding difficult times and biblical precedent. But we definitely believe that there is a judaism. Astor the tanakh after the bible closes. And let's talk about what that means every day for everybody. When did this split happen or did it happen. Multiple times between those. Who believe that the that there is an oral and that there isn't so look from a theological perspective right and like we. Carrots would say there was never an oral law and or the people who decided to follow the law broke off away from. What's carrots would say was true and these words very lucy. True historical israelite israelites. Judaism but definitely in the second temple. You see lots of different juice groups in the middle ages. The issa whites the whites anna nights the rights. You're the nights all these different jewish movements in all these different places in all these different times. So yes i think the answer. Your question is that there are many different times where judaism came apart came back together. Came apart came back together. And maybe i should rephrase that instead of saying we're judaism cap came back to but maybe the people who ascribe to judaism have different views at sometimes are more divergence from each other or sometimes came closer to each other so i really want to sit with what you said to start that which is from a care perspective the rabbinate. We haven't used that word yet. But the rabbit nights branched off and followed a new oral law. That had that was not from a care perspective sort of from the divine and i want to sit with that. Because i think there's such a deep way in which even those of us who aren't like orthodox rabbinate jews. We've we've sort of soaked into us that like Judaism of judaism this idea of an oral tradition. You know tomlin that's sort of. There's even for people who don't go to synagogue very much. They might not know what talmud is in deep way but like there's that original document and then there's all these things later that eventually i written but the idea. They're circulating around as oral teachings and they sort of are given the status. That's maybe a slight bit lower than that written doc. Foot and in many ways equal to that original document and sometimes we would even argue as judaism unbound like the newer stuff kind of replaces the torah ways in which there are correctives made from a rabbi perspective in those talmud texts in other texts that sort of change what the torah or other biblical texts are say. This word rabbinate is not a word i had ever heard until i met you but like i i'd love to talk about like there's a term rab night that exists. Wants you back out and say There are other kinds of judaism. If it's almost like we've had conversations with people were like the phrase white jew comes up like if you think all jews are white. It's a silly thing to say. White jews right. It only makes sense. When white jews is a a subsection of broader group of jews similarly the term rabbinate only make sense. When you recognize there are other kinds of jews like carrots. So i'd love to hear from you sean. Like what is it to sort of inhabit a judaism that people don't even know as judaism ism that like is is so fundamentally erased like the terminology that we have is built around. Its own existence when you zoom out and you think judaism and then you kind of say. Oh wait a minute. What's what is rob nights. Era nights jew is somebody who follows the rabbinic tradition so keira heights or are jews. Who follow the curator. Kerr carry tradition In this case. It's a bible based and not tom based tradition juice. Follow the rabbinic tradition. So that includes the entire hebrew bible and all of been literature. Now you've mentioned this question about like never having to think about what it means to be around nights in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine and haddassah magazine jewish traveller section a. Rabbi his name is rabbi borrow helmand. He traveled to cairo egypt and he was studying arabic in cairo egypt. Now i'm gonna put a little bit of a notes here in my family comes from the jewish community of cairo. So back to this right. He's he's traveling to cairo. And he's there and he's learning arabic and he is telling his muslim arabic teacher. I cannot come to class on chabad. Because i'm an observant jew. And i won't be the muslim teacher asks in a very comforting friendly voice. Basically what kind of jew are you. Are you a carrot or a rabbi nights and this rabbi tells us. That's the first time you ever had to identify as around nights. And the truth is that unless you are living in egypt and the last century probably no other place in the world where the carrots were prominent enough where somebody would have to say. Are you to revenue.
Purim Torah - Anna Solomon
"Anna solomon. Welcome to judaism unbounded. It's really great to have you. It's great to be here. So we've been doing this series on the bible and it's really exciting to be able to talk to somebody who's written a what you call exactly a biblical novel. A you know that generates itself from a biblical story. But i love to start by understanding like how you chose to write a novel based on the biblical story. You know you've written other books before wh what was the process that brought you to take this on the initial impulse really came from a children's book that i was given to read to my own kids which was sort of a children's version of the book of esther. I expected it to be simpler somehow or to kind of make the book of esther more straightforward and it turned out didn't it all in it actually raised all of the questions that had always had about the book of esther but it was like wait a second. Why was it that. I was always told that esther was really virtuous and it turns out. She's concubine a harem. And what about this fusty character. Who seems to actually have made what we would consider to be the quote virtuous choice by saying no. I won't parade make it. There were all these questions and then plot holes Hush worse who it seems by the end is sort of shocked by what heyman has been doing. This genocide earlier on is like yeah. Sure whatever you know. There's just so many there's so many sort of plot holes and inconsistencies and and my kids had all sorts of questions and it kind of made me want to go back to the book of esther itself and investigate on which is not something. I really have a lot of experienced with the local tax that that was the initial impulse that drove me back with all of these questions. You know a lot of times on this podcast. We've talked about wanting to have people. Will we call regular jews. You know people that are unauthorized. Feel empowered to take on jewish topics and jewish practices and reimagine. Them and a lot of people are intimidated to do that because they say well. I'm not a rabbi. I didn't study. How do i know how to do you know and so. I really love to talk to somebody who's done that kind of day. She's move of saying well. I'm going to really you know. Come to this. Not as somebody who's had a tremendous amount of expertise before i started and i'm curious both about the process of getting started. And did you feel intimidated in that way. And how did you get over it. And also the process of like. How much research did you do until you felt confident to the point of saying okay. Yeah i actually can write a novel about this or like you say i can contribute mid rushed to this book which you know other people say well i mean who are you after. Two thousand years totally. It's a great question. And i am absolutely a regular jew as you said i love that term and i think actually the what you said so the the research was totally tied into my getting to a point of being able to say i can do this but but not in the way. You'd expect not so much. Because i got to a point and i i felt like i knew enough it was because i got to a point and i realized that no one knows and so it gave me the freedom to go in. You know. I mean. I i began by going to my rabbi. This is in park slope brooklyn congregation. Bethelehem rachel to moaner. She's really wonderful. Insertive saying pronounced guest. Oh yeah She so great. And i said you know where do i even start and i was really open about how little i knew and she really you know is like in her office. So here's where you can even begin to go looking for interpretations translations other stories Mid rush of course. And i think for me one of the things that was very freeing in particular was was reading. The very ancient rabbis takes on The book of esther which were wild like really really wild things. That don't have any seem to have any basis in the book itself like in one hayman's daughter Heenan has a daughter first of all and she mistakes heyman for mortified or the other way round in in prayed and drops feces on his head on her father's head and it's like where does that come from in in many things like this and i think the more i read in the more outrageous at all was thought well if the ancient babylonian rabbis could do this then i guess i can. Do you know. I wanted to talk a little bit. About how your book is structured because on the one hand it's not unique to your book. There are many books that have a structure where you know chapter by chapter sort of different. I guess it's not different narrators in your case but different protagonists. I remember reading As i lay dying in school. Growing up by william faulkner which was like my first time with that and i didn't like that book i found it very disorienting but do i have grown into that style and i bring it up because i actually think you could see it as like. Oh interesting counterintuitive style for a novel or you could say when it comes to biblical text. I'll speak for myself. This is how i read it. Basically like when i'm reading a biblical text my process in my head is like For smidge i am in the text. I am like in the book of esther and then flashing to my life and that. I'm back to the book of esther and then maybe i'm to my parents. Lives are my ancestors recently but what was happening in terms of the structure of the book and in what ways might actually have something to teach us about how to approach whether it's biblical texts or any kinds of ancient texts that we work with. Yeah it's so interesting. What you say when you describe the way that you read the text in that you're going between them to your own life and two other to your ancestors etc because i think that's i think that's sort of how he read any text in a way. I mean we're always projecting ourselves into it in onto it and Whether consciously or or sort of subconsciously. And so i think in a way the weaving as you're talking about that i do in this book between these different narrators and really without between these very different times. 'cause there's the there's contemporary brooklyn there is nineteen seventies washington. Dc in ancient persia is meant to really have the effect that you're talking about that you have read which is which is to bring us closer together and to reckon with not only how much has changed but actually how much continues to be the same. In how how shaped we are by the stories that have come before us in shaped we continue to be and that we become i think then also more aware of the power of the stories. We are telling now you know to ourselves to our children to the people around us and the effect that that will have on their lives and their future. The potential for that kind of writing but also for reading is to make those connections and maybe be a little more conscious of our own powers as we as we tell our stories.

"What does it mean to have wisdom. Some people would say that it's a combination of age and experience over the years though. Haven't we all met people who are younger. Who may seem and promptly truly are wise and some who are older who will come across as very foolish. it's not just simply age and experience. It's at that. Experience is reflected on and people learn from that experience. They seek wisdom. They seek the wisdom of others. They see fully the wisdom of god as we hear in the book of wisdom resplendent dunin feeding his wisdom and she is readily perceived by those who love her and found by those who seek her. So there's the seeking of wisdom that were called to have as people of faith. It doesn't just simply happen. It's something that we're called to actively seek into due to also recognize when we are are not being wise when we are not thirsting for the lord when we are unaware when we don't truly recognize that jesus christ is the one who is truly wisdom incarnate. Wisdom made flesh in our world so that we may come to life in him and it's in that wisdom that we learn because god's wisdom is one that we need to seek into learn but it also means that we are prepared prepared for when the lord will come when the end of our lives may come but even before then are we prepared to encounter the lord all sorts of ways and moments. Jesus tells the story about the wise and foolish virgins who lit their lamps and those those lamps went out and you and you say well why. Why didn't they share. Why didn't they share the that. What was given to them. That wanted the other one share in the they. They went off to these merchants. Who in palestine of two thousand years ago. There were midnight merchants who you can buy oil from which no matter how strange that sounds when they come back. The door is locked and they're not permitted him because they were unprepared. That sounds harsh. Jesus is not purposely sounding harsh. What he is saying is we need to recognize. When god's wisdom is calling us to be prepared and to be more and to be ready for his arrival in our lives do. We prepare our hearts and our minds for encounters with christ throughout our day. Or are we foolishly going about our day so dazed and confused by so many things that we have to do or upsets are wary. All these different things and we foolishly think that everything is on us when the wisdom of god is telling us. It's not all anew so seek me and you will find peace and light and strength to face no matter what comes. These are the ways of the lord
Enclave on edge: Armenia and Azerbaijan
"Armenia and either by Jan, rejected international calls for a ceasefire yesterday after deadly clashes broke out on Sunday pushing the two countries to the brink of war. Both have declared martial law and total military mobilization. At least one hundred people have been killed in the fighting which is involved artillery strikes and air power. The two former Soviet republics are locked in a decades-old conflict over the disputed province of Nagorno Carla. This marks the second time in less than three months that the countries have come to blows. This time edging closer to all out war one, which could ensnare of Turkey and Russia. We haven't seen detail death tolls from the by Johnny side, but the overall death toll now seems to be well north of one hundred peaches. Ski Is our Turkey correspondent that would make the fighting in nagorno-karabakh the heaviest since two, thousand, sixteen, when at least two hundred people were killed and on pace to be the worst since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four, the end of the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and what is that fight about it is about a region known as nagorno-karabakh disputed province legally recognized as part of by John. But controlled by Armenian forces to go back in history. Now, going to cut about had been a part of the Kingdom of a bar via over two thousand years ago and has been real sins by a succession of Empires. But under the Soviets nagorno-karabakh was a part of by John and as the USSR crumbled clashes erupted between the Armenian majority of the region which sought union with Armenia or independence, and the by Johnny minority and these devolved into the brutal war in which about thirty thousand people were killed and about a million displaced. Included episodes of ethnic cleansing and several atrocities. The war ended with a ceasefire in nineteen, ninety four, and as I mentioned or mean forces have held onto nagorno-karabakh itself, end to seven districts surrounding the region. So it's been despite the ceasefire still disputed since then correct not only has been disputed. There have been regular skirmishes the one in two, thousand sixteen, and as recently as this year in July, the sixteen people were killed in. Areas north of GonNa cut above thousands of Azerbaijanis responded to this also to the death of renowned as her by Johnny General by taking to the streets demanding that their government retake all of nagorno-karabakh. So why is it the conflict? This time seems to be escalating. So quickly, analysts see the signs of a much broader military offensive by as by John and a return to a much broader conflict than what we saw in previous years. Some of them told me the saw this as a much better prepared campaign with more troops and fighting on all parts of the line of contact or the frontline, and we're seeing is in addition to heavy weaponry, infantry helicopters and masses of drones on both sides. There's a threat that fighting could spill over into civilian areas and also into areas where pipelines. Deliver gas and oil from by John to Turkey through. Georgia. So it's clear on the ground then that this is a much more serious conflict but I mean, what set it off? There's a belief on both sides that there is no political solution, the new Armenian Prime Minister Nicol. Chagnon in his speech last year called for the reunification of the crowd about Armenia. Azerbaijan side feels that the only way it can recover at least parts of going to cut about or the outlying provinces is through force. Perhaps because of covid nineteen, there has been next to no international mediation of the conflict since this spring and that is said to have led to the clashes in July and the failure to mediate in the aftermath of July may have precipitated. What we're seeing today people in the region say that to some extent they saw this. Coming for miles and international community failed to prevent it and what is the international community's response. Now that it's escalated, the U. N. Security Council has called on the two sides to put an end to the fighting the European Union, the United States and Russia have also called for a ceasefire unlike other international actors Turkey has urged by John to push forward and edge of type air to one Turkish president said on September twenty eighth that peace would only come to. The region wants Armenia withdrew from Nagorno cut about his spokesperson added the next day that Turkey was quote unquote fully ready to help Azerbaijan, recover the enclave reports indicate that Mr Government has sent Syrian mercenaries who help Azerbaijan. It is also providing drones to the other by Johnny Army and our media accused Turkey of shooting down one of its warplanes, which is a charge that Turkish officials have denied and you mentioned Russia calling for a ceasefire how is Russia involved escalation? On the part of other by John or further, Turkish involvement could also drag in Russia which sells arms to Azerbaijan, but also has a mutual defense pact with Armenia. So in theory because not going cut about is not legally part of Armenia Russia is not under any commitment to defend Armenia in case of an attack on they're going to cut about and so far. In fact, Russia has only gone so far as to ask Turkey, to back its calls for a ceasefire. If Armenia dust come under attack by Azerbaijan or by Turkey, it seems Russia will have no choice but to defend Armenia and do you think that's the way things are heading I mean is there a way to calm the tensions here so far calls for a ceasefire have fallen on deaf ears it may be that Azerbaijan will succumb to Russian pressure and that both sides will. Lay Down Arms. It may be that other by John will simply settle for partial gains especially in the seven district near not going to talk about and declare victory, which would placate public opinion at home but this may yet get out of control.
Unpacking Israeli History
"Back in twenty seventeen, the New York Times published an article about Amadeo Garcia Garcia. The. Last Living Speaker of the top story. Once, spoken for centuries by thousands of members of an Amazon tribe Madeo, the sole survivor, and the last person on earth to know the language his tried which had lived uncontactable for centuries along Amazon River in Peru slowly died out due to the weapons diseases brought to them from intruders when Avodados brother passed away his last remaining relative the missionary asked Amodio how he felt. Adele responded in the broken Spanish that he had. The only way he had to communicate with outside world he said. It's now over for us. Why? Dale no longer has some to speak to and when you have no one else to speak to, you will lose your language. That's why was over for Amodio. Losing a language is like losing an identity, a culture history. I don't mean to sound over dramatic here but losing a language is really losing oneself. Looking back at the history of the Jewish people that Jews faced a very similar problem. And the reality today is that over the last one, hundred, fifty years, a modern miracle took place for almost two thousand years Hebrew the language of the Torah the Bible and so much Jewish literature you know the prayers was mostly reserved for the ritual. And now. Jews. Over the world's beekeeper, a language that was essentially dead as a spoken language. Something like this has never happened in history of language. The. Fact that the majority of Jews around the world speak Hebrew today is not something to take for granted. There are approximately fourteen point, seven, million Jews in the world and six point seven, million of them live in Israel where Hebrew is the national language. And many hundreds of thousands outside of Israel, speak language as well learning it in. Jewish. Day schools and summer camps or at home. Short. The Bible prayers and religious texts were written and read in Hebrew. Literally nobody spoke in daily life for like almost two thousand years. So How'd an almost extinct biblical language reemerge as spoken language in the span of only a few decades? Was Zionism that deserves the credit Certain. Figure named Elliot's Ben Yehuda. And what is it always obvious that Hebrew would be the national language of the Jewish state. Let's jump back in time to learn about the history of the Hebrew language details about the spoken language of Hebrew in ancient times are not perfect. Here's what we know. In the Bible the Jews otherwise as Hebrews spoken ancient Biblical version of. Biblical Hebrew was the spoken language of the Jews for over a thousand years. But one of the Romans destroyed the second Jewish Temple in seventy CE HEBREW AGAIN. To die. Out.

Never do anything out of habit like Scott. You've said in the past have some good habits. Good habits that we should do that bud. They're not mindless habits. Not. You should choose those habits and by the way I think you should always be choosing better things and always question yourself. Get. In the habit of working out and eating right and all that stuff that good stuff right at the same time. You should be questioning whether it's still the right thing for you to be able to do. Should you head down that road sometimes doing that we've been doing for twenty years and at one time it was probably a good idea. And twenty years later maybe it's not. If you don't question it. You're never gonNA know. Number five, keep it simple. Do Your, job. Approach. Every task as if it were your last because. Could be. That simple fact isn't it? That's truth.

What I do the best can do my job the best I can every single day and get an extent tried again. Don't always get it right but I'll try again. Number six adapted learn from failure using your success to justify complacency. That's. Pretty Common. It's also easy which is why most people do it? You can do more you can be better. Adapt. It's okay to fail. It's okay for it to be difficult for a while to get easy eventually we stick to it. You get exactly what you one. I like this this is one that this. This is one of those going around more and more these days I think because life has gotten tougher. A lot of folks the economy is kind of what is it it's hard to say which ways ago it it's it's just a big mess. But we're still here.

20 Minutes About Traditional Chinese Medicine
"Hey, Marcus welcome to the show Tame Martin well I have to say I've been really looking forward to it because we've known each other now for well over a decade and while you had taken quite an interesting path of going real deep into Chinese Madison starting and you know actively practicing this while ancient on over in Europe and anyways I've been really wanting to do this show on Chinese medicine because over the past few months we've covered quite A few interesting topics you on the podcast about the microbiome new tropics, cavalry metabolic health, and so forth. NFL Lot of the conclusions that we're drawing in our recent age seem to have actually been practiced for thousands of years in Chinese medicine, and that brought me back to you. But before we go deep into this topic, why don't you first tell us a little bit about how he got into Chinese medicine in the first place? Yes. Sure. So Basketball and tennis when I was a kid a teenager and frequent injuries and went to all the doctors a bunch of Western medicine treatments that didn't quite help and then I ended guy practicing Japanese acupuncture. So they just using really really thin fine needles that you almost don't feel and I remember going up to his office and could barely. Account on her car is my Nieto's started so bad at its second cute rain in them and then, and then you just put a bunch of needles somewhere. I hopped off his bench. Like if nothing was. Like nothing was wrong and I remember it took forever to get up the stairs there and all that just up down. was made quite an impact on me re that that was like immediate immediate. That must have left an impression and you tried like well, traditional. Western. Medicine to treat your knee at that time just conventional stuff your painkillers, etc.. Physiotherapy all the things that they give you go talk none of them were orthopedic specialist none of that worked now, not only for some things that works and then and then this guy is. By. The way you play affected. Enough such bad acne base and your low energy levels and that you'll always cold that is just the branch of the same route. So it's all it all kind of linked together with the same root cause and. Then, he gave me a bunch of herbs in two months later up in this really cystic acne was really bad doing a lot of western medicine things that it took quite a toll my health to at the time 'cause. He's injections or quiet. They're messing with your system out there drying you out your spacious clans and older glance pretty much everywhere, and so there's a lot of side effects and he gave me a bunch of herbs so to Vivian Natural Dumb. That made my help me keep my back in away and made my Kimble's significantly reduce and so. That's what hooked, and then I always wanted to become a doctor. So I had a high school degree. So I got a scholarship and the fine print scholarship that I could pretty much use it anywhere and so was thinking, do I go to the United States in Germany? China. Server. Since then you know I was interested in Chinese medicine also and and that's actually where we met. Yeah. So I got, you know I had a had a spot at a German university medical school and didn't go and instead you we went to China to be. Teachers for a few months, and while while teaching their inner, we didn't have much to do teaching. So end around I went around there's over four thousand, but they call integrative medicine hospitals. So it's Chinese medicine and Western medicine together combined in different departments. Of course, everybody does what they're good at but are essentially were together and a lot of time on these speak laments in China in one of those muscles and then I signed up at a Chinese university instead of the German one and I study what they call Jewish, Jehovah Chinese, medicine, and Western medicine combined with the focus being on the Chinese medicine side. And I completed that study it's a five year degree mostly in Chinese language. Muslim classes were essentially chinese-language in the beginning it a little bit of English classes in a Western medicine intended teachers kind of because they're English was so bad. In Chinese anyways even though we were like international and that was in. Beijing right. That was on Beijing five years in Beijing, and then I went to Hong Kong for another five years where we met again. At the end, I did my phd in what's called evidence based Chinese medicine over using modern scientific methods like clinical trials, Placebo, controlled randomized control trials, and instead of giving you experts at drunk we're using for example, in ancient acupuncture protocols or in my case was elbow pain it's like a two thousand year old extra puncture point protocol that they've been using since at least two thousand years per elbow pain and re looked at it was the is out son of modern science and understanding how that stuff works but we are playing these ancient principles. The Same WanNa do for you today was these five health tips or twenty twenty TM health. Cultivation, wisdom, that's what they call for staying. Healthy. So I, WanNa give you a few tips and ahead of quotes from the ancient books, and then I also pulled up a few research studies that kind of backup, what they're saying or giving another perspective on it. So we re using these ancient time tested principles, and then we're also looking at them. You know some the lenses of scientific method world of mearns,
Foxes Have Dined on Our Leftovers for 30,000 Years
"Fox's hunt small animals and when other predators including US kill large animals foxes are known to scavenge the leftovers. Now, a study of their scavenging shows that Fox's have slyly relied on people for food for tens of thousands of years a solid Fox's benefit a not today from humans I was wondering if this is also the case in the past Chris Bowman from the University of Michigan's Institute for Scientific Archaeology. Humans may have had a hand in driving the extinction of large urban stores like mammoths and mastodons in the late Pleistocene, which ended around twelve thousand years ago. But we inadvertently helped other species and Bouwman suspects that plays a scene Era Fox's may have been among them. So Bellman and his team obtained the remains. Of Seventy. Fox's found in southwestern. Germany. They range from around forty two thousand years ago when neanderthals lived in the area to some thirty, thousand years ago Homo Sapiens came to dominate the region. In this study, we analyzed the question of the Fox. saw doubt indeed this different strategies of feeding the carbon and nitrogen isotope in the Fox bones supplied clues to what the Fox's had eaten. And at the earlier Neanderthal era sites a few the Fox's hunted rodents but most diet indistinguishable from the larger carnivores meaning that they regularly scavenged from the kills made by woven bears. But by the late Pleistocene when we showed up the Fox's had switched to a diet of mainly reindeer and horse me, that is human table scraps. The finding is in the journal plus. One. And so this one niche that we figured out that comes when Homo Sapiens this area is more or less stable. So focuses have time to feed on this results over the last eight years of their lives, and that's very cool because now we know that humans must have made some changes in the environment to provide this niche neanderthals Shirley hunted animals too, but there weren't enough of them or they didn't stay in one place long enough for the foxes to adapt to scavenging off their dinner plates Homo Sapiens on the other hand did stick around long enough to affect the Fox's foraging strategy. Bellman says that studying the remains of opportunistic scavengers like Fox's at learned to take of human societies can offer useful information about human impacts on ecosystems over time.

Hello Bore Blue Ensign, flowers and narcissus. It's called the annick poison garden. Because like the sign at the front gate, says do not touch any of these plants. These plants can kill you. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We hardly need to say that mankind has been growing food for a longtime. The earliest domesticated plants and horticulture that we have evidence of thus far date to nine thousand B C e in the teen corridor the that runs from the Dead Sea to the Damascus basin. The people there planted grains legumes using sticks to dig in the dirt. The first written reference to gardening dates back soumare in lower Mesopotamia. King Gilgamesh mentioned that his city or ACC was one third gardens. Though. He probably meant orchards as much as anything else. From Egypt. We have paintings and models gardeners at work, and you can still see the remains of the Temple Gardens at Karnak. Or you can head over to Iran to see the layout and information channels of garden that was created twenty five hundred years ago. For the oldest garden we can find in Europe had over to Greece. Were Gardens both practical and ornamental were being put in by seven thousand vce two thousand years before the Egyptians. The creation of a new science botany, the study of plants meant that gardens became a place of learning even in the ancient world gardens could be an aesthetic choice as well as a practical one. Evidence suggests that the idea originated in Persia with Darius the great and his Paradise Garden beginning a tradition of walled in garden spaces. Lavish Villa Gardens in the Roman Empire Spread East China and Japan where Aristocratic Gardens featured miniaturized and simulated landscapes, like rock, gardens and waterfalls.

The most famous garden in the ancient world is undoubtedly the hanging gardens of Babylon. According to Legend in the sixth century BC. King Nebuchadnezzar a name that is never not fun to say. Bill to the gardens for his wife, a modest to ensure that she didn't become homesick for her birthplace of Medina near the Caspian Sea. But we don't get details of the garden from Nebuchadnezzar himself. Which is odd considering that he recorded his many other accomplishments in cuneiform, but there's no mention of the gardens. Several, ancient Roman and Greek writers wrote about the garden though. Some scholars argue that the gardens were actually built by an Assyrian Queen or the King of Niniveh. We don't know for sure because despite the gardens being one of the seven wonders of the world. We can't find it to study it. It's believed to have been destroyed by an earthquake in the first century C E. So why were they called? The hanging gardens were the garden beds suspended. was everything planted in hanging baskets? Bonus fact, the largest hanging basket planter in the world is on the side of the hotel. Indigo in the Paddington Section of London. It measures ten by twenty feet or three by six meters and weighs upwards of half a tonne. Now the hanging gardens didn't really hang so much as they over Hong or draped and their defense, the draping garden doesn't sound nearly as appealing. Accepting the premise that some royal or another wanted to build a royalty grand garden in the desert, it was going to take careful planning and serious engineering to pull that off. The structure was a cigarette or a stepped pyramid with walls between twenty and seventy five feet high, depending on which ancient account you're reading. So picture a walled city in the desert.
