Updates to glossary definitions

I’ve just completed some glossary definition updates that readers will likely find fascinating. They can be accessed from our home page (www.netzarim.co.il), from the line reading “a-d,” etc. Updated definitions include avodah, melakhah and miqdash, among others I don’t recall at the moment.

I often update definitions. So it’s good practice to check occasionally whether you’re familiar with the latest update.

09.03 also updated definition of midrash. Still working on rabbinic definition (“More” link) of melakhah.

09.08: think I’ve finished the “More” link (in “melakhah”) dealing with Midrash methodology (mathematical logic superseding Bronze Age anecdotal generalizations and 1st century hermeneutics; provides the only possible solution to the present morass of infinitely internal-conflicting rabbinic rulings that often go off-the-rails looney tunes getting cultish fanatic strict attempting to put more patches on old patches deriving from scientifically ignorant false premises, etc. Gets quite complicated.

  1. I think the definition of מלאכה is well put. The erroneous reasoning was recorded in the 1st Century CE – the seeds existing from time immemorial. By the 5th Century the insanity could easily have been codified.
