Azi am inceput pregatirile pentru vara… one day down, three to go. Cel mai tare lucru este ca de bunavoie si nesilit de nimeni m-am uitat in Biblie dupa ceva… si am gasit! Eu care n-am deschis o Biblie in viata mea… iar dictionarul imi este inamic (nu suport sa caut ceva in dictionar!). Jewish Literancy este o carte pe care am gasit-o in timp ce “researchuiam” ceva la acest “training” pentru vara.
Am dat de 2 paragrafe care mi s-au parut absolut geniale si m-au facut sa mai citesc din carte.
After a synagogue lecture I once delivered, a woman told me, “I know all about the 613 commandments, but I’m not religious, so I don’t keep any.” I assured her that if she had not had sexual relations with her mother, father, or any of her siblings, she had already kept three Torah laws.
Si acum un exemplu “Ariel style” – adica un exemplu extrem. Este vorba despre faptul ca omul este facut dupa chipul si asemanarea lui Dumnezeu.
In what sense are human beings understood to be made “in God’s image”? Unlike animals, they have the ability to reason and to know good from evil. People speak, for example, of a “good” dog, but all they mean is an obedient dog. A dog trained by anti-Nazi partisans to attack Nazis was no more a “good” dog than a dog trained by the Nazis to attack Jews in a concentration camp was “bad”. Animals do not have the reasoning ability to make moral choices; human beings are the only creatures who do.
Cati ar fi avut tupeul sa scrie ceva ca in citatul de mai sus intr-o carte?
PS: LA MULTI ANI, IUBITA SI STIMATA INA
