I’d like to compare the New Testament with the Torah. OK, but then you throw in something that does not allow for a comparison at all by saying: Why didn’t you ask what are the earliest “GT” extant still in existence manuscripts? Jodav, the “earliest” known complete manuscripts of the Christian “bible” are the Sinaticus and Vaticanus. They are not extant in that they are not the same as the Christian bible you use today. In fact there are no full papyri of the Chrstian bible dating earlier than about the 16th century of the common era CE. A mere years ago! It is interesting that you demand original copies of a year old Torah from us and yet you do not ask for an extant copy of the Christian bible. A little hypocritical wouldn’t you say? A little “one sided”?

Adonai Problems playing this file? In the Hebrew Bible , it is only used to refer to God. As the pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton came to be avoided in the Hellenistic period , Jews began to read “Adonai” at its appearances in scripture and to say “Adonai” in its place in prayer. Owing to the expansion of chumra the idea of “building a fence around the Torah ” , Adonai itself has come to be too holy to say for Orthodox Jews, leading to its replacement by HaShem “The Name”.

Currently it can be reached through eleven gates, ten reserved for Muslims and one for non-Muslims, the Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism, which regards it as the place where Gods divine presence is manifested more than in any other place.
According to the rabbinic sages whose debates produced the Talmud, it was here the world expanded into its present form. Several passages in the Hebrew Bible indicate that during the time when they were written, the Temple Mount was identified as Mount Zion. The name later migrated for a last time, this time to Jerusalems Western Hill, according to the Bible, both Jewish Temples stood at the Temple Mount, though archaeological evidence only exists for the Second Temple.

Complaint – Zaunders Vs. Evan Zauder, a teacher at a Paramus, N. J, was arrested last Thursday after a tip led the FBI to his Manhattan apartment, where agents reportedly found on his computer hundreds of images and videos of boys engaged in sex acts. It is unclear whether or not any of that material is considered illegal.
However, a Google search by the paper of his AOL Instant Messenger screen name — which appears next to his real name on a message board for Teaneck Youth Directors and on a website for Congregation Bnai Yeshurun — turns up a list of links that contain that screen name, as well as descriptions that indicate that the sites they lead to display pornographic images or videos. Rabbi Hagler did not return calls from The Jewish Week seeking information about whether the school performed a background check on Zauder.
If you look at the literature in the business world, the idea of Googling an applicant is something that only recently has come to light. So, to find that schools may not have done this is not too surprising because the idea of doing this is so new. New York State law requires all applicants for certification and all prospective employees of school districts, charter schools and boards of cooperative educational services to undergo fingerprint-supported criminal history background checks.
The Archdiocese of New York has a Safe Environment Program that, among other things, mandates that all prospective staff members, including volunteers, in regular contact with children submit to a background check and fill out a questionnaire calling for basic background information, such as prior employment and character references. Indeed, in recent years mandatory fingerprinting and background checks for Jewish school employees have been a high priority for some Jewish child safety advocates.
The Jewish Board of Advocates for Children, headed by attorney Elliot Pasik, was instrumental in obtaining the passage of a New York State law authorizing yeshivas and all nonpublic schools to fingerprint and conduct FBI criminal history background checks on their employees. Based on information obtained through a Freedom of Information Law request in , Pasik found that only one out of the nearly Jewish schools in New York State had taken advantage of the ability to conduct a fingerprint check.
