    by R. Gil Student I. What is Transgender? Transgenderism has been in the news lately, with Bruce Jenner’s transition to Kaitlyn and President Obama’s executive order on bathroom usage. Judaism is very clear on this subject, although often misrepresented. In many places, the Talmud discusses the cases of a tumtum and androganos, people whose gender.   A Torah scroll, the Torah contains the five books of Moses, which are the first five books of the Hebrew are often called a "People of the Book," and Judaism has an age-old intellectual tradition focusing on text-based Torah study.

    The word “ Messiah ” is an English rendering of the Hebrew word “ Mashiach ”, whose translation is “ Anointed ”. It usually refers to a person initiated into G-d’s service by being anointed with oil. (Having oil poured on his head. Cf. Exodus , I Kings , II Kings ). . Book Reviews There is a good chapter on non-canonical wClttngs (Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha) and the Dead Sea Scrolls, with an emphasis on their importance to our understanding of Mishnaic Judaism and Christianity. The emerging Christian movement and the period of Roman domination are traced, along with the resulting "post-destruction" transition from Temple worship to synagogue worship.

    - In order to figure out when to celebrate Passover, etc. had to coordinate a lunar month (Hebrew Calendar) with a solar year (our month is the solar year divided by 12, but that doesn't line up with the Hebrew bible where a month really is lunar i.e. new moon is on the first day of the month so the 14th or 15th is the full moon). The Mishnah is important because it forms the foundation for the Babylonian and Palestinian Talmuds. It therefore stands alongside the Hebrew Bible as the holy book upon which Judaism of the past nineteen hundred years is constructed. (Neusner, The Mishnah: A New Translation [New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, ], p. xv).
