So I read a book about Jewish folklore at this old lady's house.Holy fucking shit. Jews are fucking nuts. It reads like 18th century Jews lived in Kingdom Death. If the main character survives with just minor injuries, it's a happy ending. The entire cosmos exists for no reason greater than to inflict horrors on them. Why don't any roleplaying games mention this fuckery? Dark fantasy survival horror at its finest.
>>47922177Because it would please the (((SJW))) which is unacceptable.
>>47922192What the fuck are you talking about?>>47922177Give us some stories.
>>47922177Being a Jew is suffering.There's an old joke about a rabbi hearing that many of the younger Jewish folks in his community are really into Nazi propaganda. So the rabbi asks one of the youngsters why they like that stuff so much, and they reply:"Because it's nice to imagine a world where we're in control for once."
Back in high school I read this awesome short story about a Vampire who becomes the night watchman at a Synagogue. Never been able to find it again, though.
The old Testament is pretty much eldritch horror central. Also the part where Israel and simultaneously God is btfo'd by a cleric of Baal sacrificing his firstborn to gain superpowers. Judaism is /tg/ as fuck
G-d knows how they might have reached such a bleak outlook.
>>47922306There's an Israeli comedy show called היהודים באים ("The Jews are Coming") which pokes fun of key moments in Jewish and Israeli history or the bible. It's outrageously funny if you know the material (nobody laughs about Jews better than Jews) and is highly recommended.Among other things, there's a running gag throughout the entire first season that the prophet Elijah is a bloodthirsty psychopath whose only desire is to slaughter hundreds of the followers of Ba'al (which in flashbacks he does by leaping around with a sword, wuxia style, until the entire field is drenched with blood). The joke is that modern day Jewish kids learn about Elijah as kind of a Santa Claus figure (they're told that he'd visit on the night of Passover, etc.). The original Elijah was a mass murderijg nutfuck who was so metal that instead of just dying he "rose to heavens in a storm" on a chariot of fire.Also, his student once summoned a pair of bears to maul forty kids who made fun of his baldness.
Isn't Tim Burton's Ghost Bride based on a Jewish folktale? I'm assuming the original is scarier?
Generally speaking, Jewish folklore stories come on two flavors:1. A wandering merchant, possibly on the run from cossacks/having just been exiled by a boyar (Jews really fucking hated boyars) runs into some inscrutable horror in a snowy forest. He POSSIBLY escapes.2. A wandering scholar either happens upon or is called to a remote village in a snowy forest in order to confront some supernatural horror who is terrorizing everyone. He may defeat it using a logical argument or by finding some loophole in the cosmic rules it lives by. The conclusion is that learning and scholarship will save everyone's lives. The village is then pogrom'd anyway and everyone is killed by cossacks.
>TFW we can't play a group of 18th century jewish-german burglars>implying we don't need these ladders to hang up our laundry
>>47922479What's with the snowy forests?
>>47922532It's telling of the Jewish mindset that in their mythological worldview, the entire world is wild and scary and it's always winter.
>>47922532>>47922542Well, when you tell a scary story, you have to put on the right atmosphere. Non-Jewish ghost stories rarely start with "it was a beautiful summer day and nature was blooming at its fullest", either.And in Poland-Lithuana, snowy forests are a thing that happens.
>>47922479>a wandering merchantKek
>>47922661The best ones do.
>>47922732And the scariest ones end with "and they got married"
>>47922716You write what you know
Read Sahi Agnon's "The Lady and The Paddler". Scary shit.
>>47922732No, the best ones start with people runing away from war or pestilence, or both. Everyone is either sick or wounded, and everyone is borderline hungry. You don't need to read story books to know how spring time was hardcore in eastern ojrop, just read a cook book or a good house wife manual. Even till today the "sending grandmother to get firewood" is something not everyone laughs at, because some people still remember times when it wasn't just a joke.
>>47922777I would say 99/100 end with the dude or dudette either getting married or joining a brotherhood[in case of males].
>>47923131>Even till today the "sending grandmother to get firewood" is something not everyone laughs at, because some people still remember times when it wasn't just a joke.What's the joke?
>>47923142it scares old people, its like saying the germans are coming . It is the same when you say around 22/23 for youngest son to get butter. Way back when this ment the dude did not return most of the time.
>>47922177My question is...why were you at a random old lady's house?
>>47923169The germans I can understand, and I guess firewood makes sense - it's cold, dark and a bit of a trek away - but why would going to fetch butter be dangerous for a 22/3 year old?
>>47923199>22/3 year old?Oh, I though 22/23 was referring to 24 hour time?
>>47923199A child at night, has to go to the one in 4-5 villages that is allowed to have cows and make butter, during the winter etc. either the wild dogs will get him, or someone from another village to get his cloths and money/what ever he has for trade, and because it is winter there is 0 chance the body will be found. ah and if he goes near an non jewish village they may just eat him if is the 1920s or 1905s or 1930s. And when your talking to someone that had a city or town living family, this means existing the ghetto. That is a 9/10 chance to get shot or caught and shot, or beaten, robed then given to germans and shot. Get butter is like your dad telling you, Son go hang yourself, but in a such a way that no one will know.
>>47923214Oh.Put .00 after, or just say 11PM, avoids confusion
>>47923252what does menstruation has to do with hours? everyone knows what a 22/3 means. it is death hour.
>>47923285Fucking Yuropoors. Learn how to use numbers properly goddamn it. We aren't all from whatever bumblefuck village you live in that was razed to the ground every 20 years for the past millennia.
>>47923373My city has never been razed and I still know what 22/23 would mean in this context, because I am not completely braindead.
Sometimes I think the Jews destroying western society is really just out of spite for all the shit it put them through.
>>47923418I think it's pretty chicken and egg - they have a lot of traits and traditions that make them very successful, but also at the same time make them very hated and easy to make into scapegoats
>>47923418It isn't giving someone shit when they're the one who starts it. Nobody would yell at shitposters if they didn't shitpost.
>>47923418>Jews>destroying society kek, keep believing that, /pol/tard. If not Jews western society would implode. You want to know why most Nobel awards in physics goes to Jews? That's right, because they are the only ones who really understand how the universe works. Without them and their wisdom we would be long gone.It's so funny how people always assume that somehow Jews work with illuminati, while they fight against them to keep the world safe.
>>47923775I wonder who might be behind this post.
I'm personally impressed we managed to go a whole 30 posts or so before /pol/ got here.
>>47922661>Non-Jewish ghost stories rarely start with "it was a beautiful summer day and nature was blooming at its fullest", either....you do realize that pretty much all of Europe got that one specific spirit that haunts fields at high noon during summers?
JIDF out in full fucking force today.
>>47923791Though to be honest the Jewish community can be super scummy at times if you actually take the time to look at it.
>>47923891It's the same with any community. I'm part native and I absolutely hate it when White people refuse to see the shitty things native people do. Refusing to look at groups of people as people is damaging to everyone. Just because they're of a different race doesn't mean that they can't be dicks, too.
>>47923926True, I've never heard of one of my non Jewish friends having to sit next to a pimp when praying. It's really kind of disturbing how some of the stuff is indulged by the community.
>>47922385>Also, his student once summoned a pair of bears to maul forty kids who made fun of his baldness.I can relate to that
>>47922479What sort of horrors do they usually run into? Just ghosts?
>>47924048Ghosts, demons, all sorts of vampires. Many are actually unspecified. A big theme is that the universe is basically unknown and filled with unknown horrors. The story may end with the hero escaping and all you've ever learned about the monster is that it's "something that looks human, moves way faster than a human and eats humans." (e.g. "The Lady" from Shai Agnon's story, who can also turn into an icy wind)
>>47924262In earlier stories it's more often a variety of named and unnamed demons with some combination of human, snake, vulture and goat features. Some are huge. Some are human sized. All are evil. Remember: this is one of the first ever cultures whose cosmology had NO PLACE for none malevolent supernatural beings. Even their angels hated humans. No the Jewish mindset, THE VERY UNIVERSE IS FUNDAMENTALLY HOSTILE, AND NOT ONLY THAT BUT IT IS SPECIFICALLY HOSTILE TO YOU.
>>47922177Have you ever seen about their nazi porn? Stalag fiction. Even the sex is about survival horror.>>47924302>THE VERY UNIVERSE IS FUNDAMENTALLY HOSTILE, AND NOT ONLY THAT BUT IT IS SPECIFICALLY HOSTILE TO YOU.Wait, so WH40K ripps off jewish mythology?
Kikes and Klezmers recognizes 4 core settings, and the respective character classes: Mythological: aka, Everyone Hates You, And They Have SwordsClasses:>Warrior: Fighting man in ancient Israel. Hit things with sword in the name of the current prophet, king, and/or God in general. May be able to draw power from God in extreme situations. >Prophet: Got a direct line to God. Odds are nobody respects you, least of all the other Jews. Show them all by nuking them with miracles, at least until God becomes disappoint and something eats you. >Magician: You try to claim benevolence to work magic under the law of King Solomon. Nobody buys it and you are stoned to death after trying to heal someone. >Angel: Minor celestial entity disguised as a human in order to test someone's morality. You secretly hate all humans with a passion and are just wishing Uriel would finally give you permission to nuke everyone. Folkloric: aka, Everyone Hates You, And The Synagogue Was Burned Down By CossacksClasses:>Merchant: Wandering tinker, paddler or trader. Social/sneaky class. Most likely statistically to get eaten by a demon. >Scholar: Wandering scholar/theologian/scientist/part-time magician. You will try to assist a Jewish community with a supernatural problem and may be eaten by a demon. >Woodsman: Closest Jews get to being fighters in this setting. Hunter/lumberjack/coal miner dabbling as a blacksmith. You will die from hunger in the winter and your daughters will be raped by cassacks.>Nistar: You have dyslexia, ADHD, and possibly schizophrenia. You are basically a moron, except you are also morally impeccable and have savant-level memory and ability to interpret the Torah. You make miracles happen by the power of innocence and anyone who harms you is nuked by angels.
>>47922336>funnyjunk imagePlease leave.
>>47922244>Being a Jew is suffering>Jewish megucas
>>47922382They started with a bleak outlook. Their entire culture is one of self-loathing leading to centuries old victim complexes.
>>47925230Current: aka, Everyone Hates You, And They Have NukesClasses:>Operative: If pre-Israel, you are a Jewish terrorist fighting the Turks/British/both depending on the day of the week. If post Israel, you are a Sayeret commando and allegedly blow up shit in Saudi Arabia.>Mossad: You are an assassin for the Israeli intelligence service. You fly around the world and strangle people, then blame the Americans. >Officer: You are an IDF officer. You will get PTSD at age 19 after being commanded to kill all civilians in some village in Lebanon, than the IDF will paint you as a maniac before the international community. You will kill yourself at age 22 and your book of poetry will be taught to Israeli students a decade later. >Pilot: Your day to day life consists of sexually harassing female officers and bombing civilians - right until a war comes, then you shoot down dozens of enemy planes, get noted by the history channel as a one-in-a-million super ace, win a hundred medals and get brought down by sexual harassment charges. Suicide at age 29.Speculative: aka Everyone Hates Us, Even The Aliens>Commander: Lead a starship in the J Space Defense Force, protecting the exodus fleet on the way to Jerusalem Bet.>Explorer: Search the other side of the Mars wormhole for a new homeland for the Jews. Get eaten by aliens.>Politician: Leader of an exodus fleet carrier. Will be assassinated by your own people over ideological discussions, having helped nobody. >Survivor: Volunteered to left behind to watch over the radioactive remains of Jerusalem until the exodus fleet returns from the Mars wormhole. Your days will be spent fighting Islamic mutants until you die from radiation poisoning.
>>47924262>>47924302Traditional Judaism doesn't really have a hell, though, does it? There's just Sheol, which is more comparable to the Underworld of the Greeks or the Nordic Hel, just a sad dark place where the spirits of the dead kick around for eternity. And The Old Testament/Torah Fall of the Angels doesn't really have a Satan figure (since Shaitan meant something else back then), right? The fallen angels just fucked a bunch of human women and bred giants.So where to Judaic demons come from?
>>47923793Indeed, this thread has been remarkably civil all things considered. Can't wait for it to go to hell in a handbasket.
>>47923803What's that? I don't recall anything like that, although that might be because there isn't really anything left of folklore where I live.
>>47925399GHOST OF КOMMУHИЗM, MWAHAHAHAHA
>>47925329Either unspecified, or "the underworld". That's pretty unspecified, too. It's just another realm which is dark, possibly underground and which is filled with demons. Sometimes also the dead. Sometimes only the evil dead. Sometimes random dead. Sometimes just the demons. Some demons just "are". They live in the forest, or in a cave, or just wherever they do. Remember, the cosmos is hostile unknowable. Not unknown, actually unknowABLE. It cannot be known. At least not by regular human beings. They just need to survive in it.
>>47925399It's mainly an Eastern European thing, a sort of folkloric explanation for sun-stroke, explaining why farmers take a break around midday. The spirit has a number of different names. Poludnica, Poludnitsa, Poloznicha, etc, etc. They all mean "Lady Midday." She appears in the fields when the sun is at its zenith and kills anyone still working there, usually by killing them with a sickle or by breaking their bones with her bare hands. Sometimes she asks riddles and only kills you if you can't answer them, the story varies a fair amount from region to region.At any rate, she doesn't really exist in Western European traditions.
>>47925435>At any rate, she doesn't really exist in Western European traditions.Yeah, that'll be it. Usually rains all summer here.
>>47925429I seem to recall once hearing about a specific type of Judaic wilderness demon called Shedim, which were basically just hairy demon ogres, similar to traditional ghouls, rakshasas, oni, and the like.
>>47925435The Poles have such cool folklore, I'm almost jealous.
>>47925452"Shedim" is just Hebrew for "demons". It's plural of "Shed". There are innumerable types. Some are even implied to be individuals or completely unique. They have names and everything recorded in books of Jewish mysticism. Others are entire "races", such as the Sei'rim, which are basically satyrs except without the fun parts (they just rape and pillage), and the Naomas/Naomis (?), which are seductive female demons who are possibly either children and/or servants of Lilith.
>>47925446UK is not the same as western ojro. The sefardis have something like the noon lady, only she is a man, and he rapes to death.
>>47922177Inbreeding is a hell of a drug.
>>47925277>You will kill yourself at age 22 and your book of poetry will be taught to Israeli students a decade laterThis sounds like a story.
>>47925491There are also Mazeekim, which are smaller, mischievous demons, pretty much imps. Depending on source they may be the spirits of the evil dead or just minor demonic servants. Easily repelled by protective talismans and spells.
>>47925329God. Everything comes from God because God is everything. One of the reasons Christianity sells better is because it basically makes God good.Also you don't spend an eternity in Sheol. You hang out for a while, suffer, then fade into nothingness. At the end times god's going to create a new, better world and all of the righteous people are going to get to be part of it. I'm an atheist, mind, but that's how it goes.
>>47925329>>47925551It all depends on which interpreter you read. Every great historical Rabbi had their own opinion on the matter and even the bible can't seem to decide. Sheol is either where everyone goes, or where the sinners go, and you're there either forever or for a single year and after there you either fade away or go back to life or go to paradise, and paradise may or may not exist and may or may not only be for the righteous or for everyone or just for those randomly selected by God. Sheol also may be a part of paradise (on the 4th Heaven, out of 7. Paradise is 1st, God hangs out in 7). It is maybe underground and possibly cold, but definitely dreary. It may be filled with demons, unless it isn't. Satan is just "adversary" in Hebrew, but more in a "stands on the other side" sense, not a "lord of darkness" sense. He's an angel of God whose job is to point out flaws in creation and bring them to God's attention. He is probably unrelated to Samael, the Angel of Destruction, who is probably bad, maybe, possibly, but still working for God, almost definitely.
I know it, not worth much, but from Wikipedia:>According to one legend, the shedim are descendants of serpents, or of demons in the form of serpents, alluding to in the serpent in Eden as related in Genesis. To others they are descendants of Adam and Lilith. Another legend said that God had started making them, intending for them to be humans, but did not complete their creation because He was resting during the Sabbath. Even after the Shabbat, He left them how they were to show that when Shabbat comes, all work must be viewed as complete.I love the idea that they're God's old abandoned projects, left around to fuck with mankind because he can't be bothered to deal with them anymore. Yahweh is such a dick.
>>47925608Some stories say that Leviathan was originally member of an entire species of giant serpents, but after creating them God had second thoughts and kill them all. Leviathan was the only survivor because God figured out a single giant serpent couldn't breed, so it's not really an issue. What's one giant serpent to destroy entire nations? That said, remember the time those stories were created. Ancient Mesopotamia and Canaan. Gods back then were known to obliterate humanity for making too much noise, or on dares from other gods, or just because. The Hebrew God was considered progressive for at least giving a reason for HIS big flood.
>>47925656I thought Leviathan and Behemoth were created as a mated pair. Though I guess that leaves the Ziz as the third wheel.
>>47925656>Some stories say that Leviathan was originally member of an entire species of giant serpents, but after creating them God had second thoughts and kill them all. Leviathan was the only survivor because God figured out a single giant serpent couldn't breed, so it's not really an issue.See, that's dickishness. You already went through the trouble of destroying an entire race of dragons, and you leave one of them alive not to make a point, not because you couldn't - but because you pretty much FEEL LIKE IT.
>>47925459The absolute most of it is generally Slavic, not just Polish.
>>47925698To be fair IIRC god kills it with a sword at some point
>>47925677Again, Judaism, multiple interpretations. I've even read ones that say he created Leviathan, Behemoth and Ziz for the sole purpose of being slaughtered and served to him on Judgement Day, because I guess he'll be hungry by then.
>>47922404I don't speak a word of Hebrew- except "agnosti" apparently- but that was pretty funny.
>>47925551Sheol sounds like Russia. ... WAIT A MINUTE
>>47925941Yeah, didn't want to admit that I had already heard of that from vidya.

>>47922244Given how many Israelis post on /pol/, to the point where anti-judaism has noticeably softened since GG and the implementation of flags, I'm not surprised.
>>47925230>>47925277You know, jokes aside, this is a pretty insightful allocation. Besides the "speculative" setting (I'm assuming that's all a reference to some science fiction movie?) the combination of the other three represents a system of distinctive genres which share the themes making up "Jewish fiction". The "mythological" setting is characterized by stories about the larger-than-life, heroic actions of judges, prophets and kings who existed in "biblical times". The Jews of these stories are depicted as essentially an aggressive warrior race, with their own, powerful kingdom, who face monsters and foreign armies on wars of conquest. King Solomon pulls off Exalted level shit like invading the underworld and killing dragons. Miracles involve blasting entire cities off the face of the Earth. By comparison, the stories of Jewish folklore all happen in some timeless, unspecified forest in Eastern Europe in which the fundamental assumption is that Jews are a haunted, ostracized people with no kingdom of their own, no kings and no power. Their communities are tiny and weak, they are essentially at the mercy of the goyim. You will never find a Jewish folktale about a hero who defeats a monster, or even a human enemy. They'd barely even wield weapons. The heroes of Jewish folktale are passive, not active, and they normally use cunning and knowledge to escape from danger. They rarely gain anything in the process other than the escape itself.
>>47926182The "Current" setting refers to the ethos of Israeli war stories, which are a predominant form of fiction in Israel. Back in the 50's and 60's, they'd normally star bold, swashbuckling resistance fighters and pioneers in a setting which is almost Wild West-ish in nature, with Arabs taking the place of Indians and British taking the place of Yankees. As time moved on, Israeli war stories became darker and darker until today they're almost inevitably about deeply conflicted, mentally broken soldiers and agents who see themselves as warriors in a war for survival and are STILL not sure if they personally deserve to see the end of it. It also refers to the phenomenon of IDF poetry, which is a thing. IDF soldiers are for some reason extremely prone to poetry. Their poetry is prone to being really, really, really fucked up. Like holy shit, someone-find-this-guy-a-therapist fucked up.

>>47922385>Also, his student once summoned a pair of bears to maul forty kids who made fun of his baldness.I remember a post that mentioned this instance losing a lot of its meaning in translation. Wish I could find it. The jist of it was that 'youth' basically meant any guy from 16-19 and they were actually leveling a pretty serious threat. It was more synonymous with being harassed by a bunch of thugs than being heckled by some little shits.
>>47926333Not the same guy, but from the wording, I'm assuming it's less "hardcore" and more "whoever wrote this is completely broken inside". There's also something kinda creepy about letting a little girl sing this. Hell, thinking about it now, Israel has female combatants. She may have written this.
I'll just leave this here
>>47926371>Hell, thinking about it now, Israel has female combatantsI thought they don't engage in combat.
>>47926371They also write happy songs!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysjrd64paKUTranslation: They advanced slowly. All was calm. Along the riverbed whisper the papyrus reeds. Suddenly, lightning and thunderOne cried: "Wounded!""I'm on my way", replied the medic."We stepped on a landmine", cried the wounded man then."I'm right at your side", replied the medic. A hail of fire struck, a heavy, broken hail. Along the riverbed, along the whispering papyrus reeds. "Leave me here", asked the wounded."Don't be silly", answered the medic."Just save yourself", said the wounded. "I'm staying by your side", replied the medic.And left were the both of them, and the field was open. And left the both of them, and they're exposed to fire."The both of us are doomed now", mumbled the wounded. "Hold onto me tightly", said the medic. "You are also wounded", whispered the wounded man. "Don't think of it. It's not as bad as it looks" [using a phrase associated with calming down small children], replied the medic. And heavy, heavy was the fire. To move was hard, was hard. To only not give to despair, to only not give to despair. "I shall remember you forever", swore the wounded. "Just don't fall down", mumbled the medic. "Yours until the day of your death", swore the wounded. "The day of my death is today", replied the medic. Suddenly, a cloud of dust. Suddenly, rose the wind.And a shadow on the ground, coming closer, thundering. "We are saved! They've come for us!", whimpered the wounded. But heard no word from the medic. "My brother! My dear brother!", whimpered the wounded. Across the riverbed whisper the papyrus reeds. My brother! My dear brother!
>>47926412They do, but it's true that they're not nearly as common as the media would like you to think. There's a particular infantry unit which is made up almost entirely of women, and aside from it they're spread among all branches of the Israeli military, including combat roles (infantry, armor, pilots, recently sailors, submarines, etc.)
>>47926561It's a pretty standard scene.
>>47926335That makes more sense.
>>47926561What's it with the Israelis and singing slow, gentle songs about death in battle?
>>47926622It sounds more like a... religious song of some kind to me. Not understanding the words make listening to it weird. It's like in church.
>>47926622I don't think they know many other subjects to feel emotions about.

>>47926817People in Poland sometimes follow old tradition rooted deeply in Slavic beliefs, but they are often completely clueless why they do that. For example they often hang red ribbon above toddler's bed "for luck". Back in the day they believe demons would kill or replace the child with their own and ribbons were meant to protect from them. Also, people often refuse to shake your hand over a doorstep as it brings bad luck. In Slavic beliefs there were demons living in (under?) doorsteps. From other odd believes I remember is that you can't swim at some particular days. I never found an explanation for it, though.

>>47927568It's been aeons since I've learned that story, but the gist is: In a certain Jewish village in Poland there lived a boy who could never learn how to read, no matter how much the rabbi tried to teach him. Reading is a big thing in Judaism, so combined with him being generally airheaded and weird (he had a habit of whistling very loudly when he got emotional) he was basically regarded as an idiot. Anyway, Jews are big on literacy so the illiterate moron is not allowed to study Torah at the yeshiva (so he wouldn't shame it) and works as a cowherd. His father is abusive and resentful, and very ashamed, to the point of confiding in the rabbi that he's worried there would be no one to read prayers after his death. The boy just spends his time playing with animals and whistling. One day, he comes by the yeshiva when the rabbi asks a difficult question about the interpretation of some incredibly obscure passage from the Talmud. The idiot gives a perfect, annotated answer as if it was the simplest thing in the world, even providing detailed quotes from memory. When asked how he did it, he simply says that he sometimes passes by and hears the rabbi speaking through the open door. Everyone is astounded. Turns out the idiot was a genius all along. His father is excited that he can finally be proud of his son and it's decided that he will go with them to the great synagogue of Warsaw, home to a revered mystic, to say the Yom Kippur prayer (considered the holiest in Judaism - this is basically as great an honor as any religious Jew could ever dream of).
>>47927840The boy is nervous and afraid but cannot bring himself to refuse for fear of shaming his father even more. Obviously, when the time comes to read the Yom Kippur prayer and he's asked to stand up in front of the book and read, and the synagogue goes silent with expectation to hear this prodigy and his brilliant reading, he can't do it. Recall, he's dyslexic or something. The silence becomes more and more stifling, the boy panics, and, tearfully, does the only thing he can think of in such a situation - whistle very loudly. Everyone is apalled, and the synagogue bursts into a great outrage at this shameful display. The boy's father rises to kill him in rage. Before he's able to do so, however, the revered mysic stirs in his throne and asks "Who is this Holy Man [Tzadik], who with a passionate cry, has opened the gates of Heaven?" (this is a reference to the practice of blowing the shofar horn in Yom Kippur). The father realizes his boy's purity and is finally proud of him. IIRC, the boy stays in Warsaw and grows to become a great mystic himself. It's a strange story. It has a touching human aspect and can be seen as being both about father-son relationships and about the daily struggles of people with developmental or mental disorders. At the same time, it is grounded very strongly in the sensibilities of 19th century Polish Jews. To anyone else, the whole story would appear either bizarre or meaningless. It's hard to understand WHY it's so bad for someone to not be able to read, or why it's such an honor to read the Yom Kippur prayer, or why the whistle has such a heavenly significance, or why being called "Tzadik" by the great mystic of Warsaw is by itself enough to make it a "story with a good ending". I also wouldn't call it a folktale. It was written by a well-known writer, for once. It's not like the story was passed through the generations of some Jewish village. It also doesn't have the traits of a Jew folktale. i.e. It has a good ending.

>>47933642 A Jewish congregation was arguing over whether one should stand or sit during the Shema Yisroel. Half of the congregation said one should sit, the other half insisted one should stand. Every time the Shema was recited they shouted at each other, “Sit down!” and “Stand up!” The fighting became so bad that the congregation was split in two, each half contending that they knew the tradition in that synagogue. Finally, the rabbi decided to visit a one hundred year old member of the synagogue who was living in a nursing home. He took a delegation from each of the arguing sides with him to see the oldest member of the “shul”. “Now, tell us,” said the rabbi, “what is our tradition?” “Should we stand during the Shema?” “No,” said the old man. “That is not our tradition.” “Well, then,” said the rabbi, “ should we sit during the Shema?” “No,” the old man, “that is not our tradition.” “But we need to know what to do,” said the rabbi, “because our congregation members are fighting among each other.” “That,” said the oldest member of the congregation, “that is our tradition.”Pic definitely related
This is a surprisingly decent thread. I've learned a lot.Does anyone have book/translator recommendations for any of these source texts?
So, some Rabbis are arguing about an oven. Basically, Rabbi Eliezer said that if you made an oven out of separate coils of clay, placing one upon another, then put sand between each of the coils, the oven was not unclean. A bunch of other Rabbis disagreed. The oven didn't belong to the Rabbis - in fact, it might not have existed at all - but that didn't stop a good argument.It was a massively lopsided debate - Rabbi Eliezer on one side, all the other sages on the other. Finally, Rabbi Eliezer said, "Look, I'm sick of this. If I'm right, let this carob tree prove it!"And suddenly, the carob-tree was tossed through the air and thrown either 150 or 600 feet away. The sages said, "No proof can come from that. It's just a tree! It's not an authority on ovens and uncleanliness.""Ok, fine," said Rabbi Eliezer, "then let this stream prove it!" And the stream flowed backwards."Still not proof!" the sages said, presumably peevishly."Ok, fine. Let the walls of this house prove it! See how you like that." And the walls tilted inwards, quite dangerously.But Rabbi Joshua said, "Hey, we're arguing here! Walls, stop it! You don't have any right to interfere in a good argument!" And so, the walls stopped.Rabbi Eliezer, presumably quite annoyed, said, "Fine. You know what? Let Heaven prove it." And a heavenly voice rang out that said,"Why do you dispute with Rabbi Eliezer? On all debates of this nature, he is always right. Now stop bickering."And all the other sages thought, "Well, fair enough." But Rabbi Joshua said."What, are you going to listen to God now? God, stay out of this. You wrote the Torah, we follow the Torah, and it's your Law. You can't just go amending your own divine Law as you see fit."And God, the original rules lawyer, laughed and laughed and laughed.http://thisisjudaism.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/The-Oven-of-Akhnai.pdf

Didn't the jews install a complex network of wires in every major city so they could just conveniently avoid the sabbath?
>>47926182The Diaspora fucked the Jews up majorly. They watched as what they believed to be the holiest and most sacred place on the planet got burned to the ground and sacked, then they were permanently exiled and barred from their ancestral homeland and the center of their religion. Whats even worse was that the destruction of the temple was partly the Jews own fault. Part of what made the sacking of Jerusalem so destructive was the huge amount of infighting going on between the various rebel factions within the city. It got so bad that the city was already on fire before the Romans got inside. Stuff like that normally marks the death of a culture, it's a miracle that Judaism managed to survive it at all, and it's hard to overstate the massive shift in Jewish thought and culture this caused. They had lost their most treasured possession and were now exiled from their home, is it any wonder they viewed themselves as haunted, ostracized, isolated, and weak? The Jews have seen some shit.

>>47937295No, no, see, we must bicker about the details. And since we don't have a rulebook to refer to, I must agree with you, on principle.Besides, this is /tg/, nicest of all the boards.
>>47928415I think it's fair to argue that sacrificing sheep is significantly better than sacrificing children, yes.
>>47936629Isn't that literally what they're doing? It's some loophole that you can travel to your own property on the Sabbath, so they make sure to keep a piece of their property on a friend's land so they can visit on the Sabbath. I may be talking out of my ass, fair warning.
>>47937454I'm Orthodox, here's a simplification.There's a bunch of things you can't do on Shabbat, some of which involve moving items between/in/out of your home. They take the wire and make a big loop around the town, and declare that the wire is the border of a theoretical community 'home', so that they can do more stuff on Shabbat.
>>47925329At the time the text was written, it was all pretty similar to everyone else in the region-- Sheol is an underworld where you return to the dust and clay from which you were made. Unfriendly supernatural creatures are just part of reality. If you read closely, Yahweh didn't actually make anything from scratch and there are other deity-ish things out there, not to mention fiery snakes and sphinxes. Seriously, read through the psalms and then read Gilgamesh and then reread psalms. You'll see it clearly as anything.
>>47925608I'd buy it. Hell, read Genesis 2. In that one Yahweh makes Adam, realizes he's lonely and needs to get laid, so he starts making animals. Adam, not being into animals doesn't find anyone, and so Yahweh has to make Eve. I shit you not, that's what happens in the bible.
>>47928415>>47929181Actually, things indicate that they all did child sacrifice. If I recall, Exodus 13? Contains a command to sacrifice children. A few other places too. Source J is neutral on the matter and Source E is for it.
>>47937653trying to get around, interpret, or straight-out ignore the many rules of Judaism is one of the reasons why so many of us are comedians.
>>47935713It actually is German fault. During WW I they stayed to support financially the most radical Muslim preachers hoping they could illicit uprising against the Brits. After the war every other superpower that had interests the did the same.
>>47937305Yup. The demon was called Mamuna and it was a soul of a woman who died while giving birth.
>>47922479The second story sounds really cool, have any examples?
>>47937801That depends on which of the creation stories you're referring to. Genesis has 2, somewhat similar but still distinct. Generally speaking the first creation story is more "spiritual" (using more ephemeral terms for God, saying stuff was created from nothing, implying man was originally created as a perfect hermaphrodite in the image of angels in order to be the pinnacle of creation, etc.) while the second is more "down to earth" (God is more anthromorphic, stuff was formed from existing matter, man was created as a physical being in order to tend to creation, etc.)
>>47938221The fuck you talking about, Schlomo?
>>47938221To further confuse things, archaic Hebrew has highly complex grammar which allows for a massive degree of nuance and multiple interpretation of phrases, most of which is lost in translations. If it feels confusing to you in English, consider how confusing is has to be in Hebrew.

>>47929334Modern Hebrew is largely constructed, though, isn't it?
>>47939322Its vocabulary, not its grammar. It's been effectively "dead" for millennia, so obviously, when it was decided that it should become the official language of Israel (Yiddish and German were considered as alternatives) it became clear that thousands upon thousands of new words would have to be invented or at the very least loaned from other languages in order to represent concepts which didn't exist in ancient Canaan. The basic principles of the language, however, remained almost exactly the same. A modern day Israeli kindergartner could probably understand a speech in 2500 years old Hebrew fairly easily, and if a person from 500 BC couldn't understand modern Hebrew, it'll be mostly because he doesn't recognize the individual words, not because it would sound alien (in fact, based on their grammatical role he would probably be able to tell that, say, "a car" is some kind of object and a "a technician" is some kind of professional, even if he wouldn't know the specifics. It helps that Hebrew has a mathematics based structure that retains logic across grammatical forms, so even made-up words can be understood easily)
>>47934367>R. Nathan met Elijah and asked him: What did the Holy One, Blessed be He, do in that hour? — He laughed [with joy], he replied, saying, ‘My children have defeated Me, My children have defeated Me.’My sides are with YHVH now.

>>47939369>There's also a story of Rabbi Eliezer ben Hyrcanus, a prominent (and extremely conservative) Roman era rabbi, trying to convince the Sanhedrin that he was in the right about a particular kind of oven being impervious to Levitical uncleanness. Even when overruled, he managed to call on various signs from the natural world (trees, a stream, the beams of the Sanhedrin building) to show he was in the right. Each time, the Sanhedrin dismissed the sign as the sign-bearer stepping outside of its jurisdiction. Finally, Eliezer beseeched God himself to step in...which he did, identifying Eliezer as correct about the oven being tamei-proof. Cue the Sanhedrin head rebuking God for this, even quoting Deuteronomy to the effect that the demands of the law put jurisdiction only among the rabbis; "it is not in the heavens".

>>47939294>>47939421If it makes you feel better, Solomon ibn Gabirol (a famous historical rabbi) appears in Fate/Apocrypha. His specialty is golems.Also, King Solomon appears in Fate/Grand Order. He's a massive dick and, power level wise, the only servant in the universe who comes close to matching Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Oh, and he invented magic.
>>47939436but jokes are funny
>>47939534>Oh, and he invented magic.Not really. He just wrote a bunch of loopholes in the laws of reality in order to allow any human who knows about them to use magic. Before Solomon, the only way to do that was to either have divine blood or ask for help from divine powers.

What about man eating jewish giants ala domions
>>47942520The giants aren't Jewish. The Israelites fought the giants when they conquered Canaan. Goliath was from Gath, for instance.
>>47942745Most likely what happened is that the scouts who were sent to Canaan were scared of the locals, so they returned to Joshua or whoever was the current Israelite leader and told stories about how the land is filled with giants and we should totally not try to conquer it.
>>47925941The Witcher series is based off of Eastern European lore and folktales.
