So did Rashi's daughters. I admit I was wrong.

I never understood the woman kippot/tallis thing until a few weeks ago, when at a class someone from the reform movement noted that under orthodoxy she felt she couldnt express themselves, and bells went off in my head - i.e. I realized that it WAS an issue of equality - that I took for granted my own practices and that there was no reason to deprive others of the same experience.

Minchag is not a Hebrew word. Minhag is tradition in the sense of "something that people do regularly". Minhag also translates to "habit".

I get it. Minhag is the actual Hebrew word, not minchag

"nhg" means custom, or if used in the imperative - to lead

HughBe--- I see that we are struggling to IDENTIFY a Hebrew word, professor. One would have thought that YOU a person who has very little use for English would at least be able to tell the difference between your natural tongue i.e. Hebrew and English.

Minchag is not a Hebrew word. Minhag is tradition in the sense of "something that people do regularly". Minhag also translates to "habit". Another Hebrew word for tradition is masoret, which is more general and includes all "minhagim".

The confusion with "minchag" might be because "chag" means holiday. Keeping the holidays means keeping "minagey chag" (traditions of the holiday).

HughBe--- The xians who wrote the NT were JEWS.
Key word WERE.

They then became the earliest Christians.

Jews don't believe in JC. Religion 101.

What do you see as the difference between Jews and Christians? Anything at all?

As an aside, have you joined NAMLA yet?

Well, here is the rub. Since now that have you grasped the concept, pursuant to our lengthy previous conversations, it is time to move it up a notch.

Minhagim (plural of minhag) are actually part of Halacha (Jewish law - literally translated as "the way") too.

Jewish law consists of both mitzvot (commandments that derive directly from the text (bible)) and minhagim. Mitzvot are universally binding while minhagim are not.

although generally I have been avoiding you, I will drop in for a quick note.

We are using a bastardization of Hebrew here (i.e. Hebrew using English letters to approximate the phonetics of the Hebrew alphabet). So all types of misunderstandings abound here since there are all kinds of transliteration mistakes.

Give me the Hebrew with the actual Hebrew alphabet and I will not be mistaken. Unfortunately this is not possible with Topix.

I was absent for a few weeks at the end of Dec. Did Hugh ever get around to answering the question about Jesus' genealogy or is he hoping we forgot about it?

Glad you did, and for helping me, since i've been googling in vain for 'nhg'.
Assyrian legal lingo->hebrew
From gardens to actually meaning law.
Like some elaborate game of hide and seek.

Just failing to see the connection.

Of course not.

And it was a blessing in disguise (with due respect to your belief system), as I get to ignore Hughbe. As does Eric for the most part as well.

Worst fate on Topix (short of being banned) is to be ignored.
