6 things you didn’t know about the Talmud

6things6 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE TALMUD
The Bible Vs. The Talmud
By F. Martin

   When first coming into our way of faith; (ie. honoring the Shabbat, celebrating the Feast Days, eating according to the dietary restrictions in Lev 10, following the Moral Laws of the Torah, and the belief of the Messiah, Yahushua along with the knowledge of the Sacred Names, etc) one automatically thinks trying to be as much Jewish as possible is best and will bring us closer to the Father. To many, simply following the Torah is not good enough for them. They feel the need to go deeper into Judaism, the adorning with the Tallit, the Kippah, the head tefillin, and other traditions and customs that are not mentioned in the Bible. Inevitably, one thing leads to another and the Talmud is brought into the picture. Line by line it is read, memorized and practiced so precisely that as each day passes, it becomes elevated more and more; greatly than the very Torah itself.

+Here is what Rabbis have to say about the Talmud:

“The teachings of the Talmud stand above all other laws. They are more important than the laws of  Moses.” -Rabbi Issael, Rabbi Chasbar, et. al.

The decisions of the Talmud are words of the living God. God Himself asks the opinion of the earthly rabbis when there are difficult affairs  in heaven.-Rabbi Menechen Commentary on Fifth Book

   The Talmud, (pronounced as ˈtälˌmo͝od) is a collection of arguments and formal statements regarding religious rulings and consists of the Mishna and Gemara. There are two versions of the Talmud. One written in Roman Palestine called the Jerusalem Talmud and the other written in Mesopotamia called the Babylonian Talmud. According to Judaism, the Talmud is more suitable for a code of law than the Torah. The Talmud preceded the Torah  and was passed down from generation to generation, orally. It is known to be THE ORIGINAL law given to Adam. The Talmud is considered to be the only form of law before the Commands were given to Mosheh (Moses) on Mount Sinai. While reading through the Scriptures one can find numerous mentions of other books mentioned that are not in the Bible, (ie. Jasher, Book of the Covenant, Wars of Yahuwah, Book of Statues, Book of Samuel the Seer, Book of Nathan the Prophet, Book of Gad the Seer, Acts of Solomon, Book of Shemaiah the Prophet, Prophesy of Abijah, and many more). Apparently, Yahuwah wanted these mentioned books to be known. If the Talmud is so special and has more authority and is more suitable for code of law than the Torah, where is the mentioning of the Talmud or even of an ‘Oral Law’ in the Scriptures? It cannot be found endorsed, not once! In fact, Yahushua spoke against the Oral Law and Traditions when He was here on earth!

But He answering, said to them, “Why do you also transgress the command of Elohim because of your tradition?
-MattithYahu|Matthew 15:3

And in vain do they worship Me, teaching as teachings the commands of men. Forsaking the command of Elohim, you hold fast the tradition of men.” -Mark 7:7-8

NULLIFYING THE WORD OF ELOHIM  which you have handed down. And MANY such traditions you do.” -Mark 7:3

  The majority today believe the Torah was first established on Mount Sinai. While the Scriptures are not clear as to which laws existed before the time of Mosheh (Moses) and the official giving of the Torah, there are definite examples of at least some laws in existence before Mosheh (Moses). From Scripture, we can tell the Torah first began ‘In the Beginning’: 

And on the seventh day Elohim completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the Seventh Day from all His work which He had made. And Elohim blessed the Seventh Day and set it apart, because on it He rested from all His work which Elohim in creating had made.” -Bereshith (Genesis) 2:2-3

   In Bereshith 7:2 Noah knew the definition of both clean and unclean animals, he was instructed to take certain numbers of each kind onto the ark. Clean animals were yet to be defined until Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 11, another two books away. The clean animals were used for eating and also for sacrifices unto Yahuwah.

  We can see that from the beginning of it all, Yahuwah blessed the seventh day and rested on it. Shemoth (Exodus) 20:11 also refers to the creation of the earth and the blessing of the Sabbath.

For in six days YAHUWAH made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore YAHUWAH blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.” -Shemoth 20:11

   The Israelites were rebuked for collecting manna on the Sabbath day before the Ten Words/ Ten Commandments were officially given. Also consider how Yahuwah rebuked the people for not keeping His commandments and laws concerning gathering the manna on the Sabbath day! (Shemoth 16:27-29)

   It is quite clear that the law of the Sabbath was in existence from the beginning. It is also clear that there were Commands, at least to an extent. Consider the following verse:

But the men of Sedom (Sodom) were evil and sinned before YAHUWAH exceedingly so.” -Bereshith 13:13

   In order to sin there needs to be a law or command of instruction. The men of Sedom sinned before Yahuwah, they must have known what sin means in order to be sinning. The only way for Sedom to be wicked is that they must have been breaking some sort of law. As seen from the following texts in the Bible.

Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.”
-1 Yohanan (John) 3:4

For law works wrath; but where no law is neither is there transgression.”  -Romans 4:15 (Darby)

   Another example of the Torah before Mount Sinai is during Abraham, of who it is said that he kept the commandments and laws of Yahuwah. 

Abraham obeyed My voice and guarded My Charge: My commands, My laws, and My Torot.”  -Torot is the plural form of Torah.
-Bereshith 26:5

    It is very clear to see that before the Torah was given by Mosheh on Mount Sinai that to a degree many laws already existed. Just to name a few; there was the Law against murder (when Cain killed Abel), the law of clean and unclean animals (during Noah’s time) and the law of the Sabbath (after creation). Even though the Scriptures does not give precise detail into many other laws before Sinai, Biblical history does reveal that there was some sort of legal standard and it does not mention the Talmud or an ‘Oral Law’.

   And so, we must conclude with the six things you don’t know about the Talmud: 

1. Sex with 3 year old girls and 9 year old boys is allowed and girls under 11 must continue sex without a contraceptive (birth control), a girl under 3 years old can marry a priest.

“A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permited to marry a priest.” [ im1, im2 ]

“A Maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in Marriage by coition (ie. sexual intercourse, intercourse, lovemaking, mating, sex, sex act, sexual relations.)” img3 img7 ]

“When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this, (footnote: that is, less thanthree years old.) it is as if one puts the finger into the eye. (footnote: ie. tears come to the eye again and again, so does virginity come back to the little girl under three years.) [ img4 ]

“The intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act.” [ img4 ]

“Footnotes: because at nine years a male attains sexual maturness, thus the comparison is the sexual matureness of woman, which is reached at the age of three.” [ img6 ]

“From the age of eleven years and one day until the age of twelve years and one day. One who is under (footnote: When no conception is possible) or over this age (footnote: When pregnancy involves no fatal consequences.)” [ img8 ]

“A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation (not married but living together with sexual intercourse.” [ img9 ]

   The 96% of the world’s media is owned by Zionist Jews and they even admit it, which explains the sexualization young girls on television these days…

 2. “Goyim” deserve no respect. A “Goyim” is a gentile. It is of the same nature as beasts.

“Goyim” is plural, “Goy” is singular.

“When it comes to a Gentile in peace times, one may harm him indirectly, for instance, by removing a ladder after he had fallen into a crevice.” (Shulkan Arukh, Yoreh De ‘ah, 158).

+Gentiles, (Goyim, Goy) were created solely as slaves for the Jews:

“God created them in the form of men for the glory of Israel. But Akum [Gentiles] were created for the sole end of ministering unto them [the Jews] day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved from this service. It is becoming to the son of a king [an Israelite] that animals in their natural form and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him.” (Midrash Talpioth 225a) Rumor has it that this quote is from the Talmud, but others say it is not. Historical library sources in NYC label this in a Category of ‘Talmud’. It has been written by Elijah ben Solomon Abraham ha-Kohen.

+The word “Goyim” is a jokingly term used to describe the animal nature of the gentiles. Here are a few texts relegating (downgrade) Goyim/Goy/Gentiles as animals.

~“All children of the ‘goyim’ (Gentiles) are animals.” (Yebamoth 98a)

~“The sexual intercourse of a Goy is like to that of a beast.” (Sanhedrin 74b Tosephoth)

~“The seed of a Goy is worth the same of that of a beast.” (Kethoboth 36)

~“The ‘goyim’ are not humans. They are beasts.” (Baba Mezia 114b)

~“The Nokhrim [Gentiles] are not rendered unclean by a burial, for it is said: Ye are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture; ye are men. You are thus called men but not the Nokhrim [Gentiles].” ( Yebamoth 61a)

~“a Jew, despite the sins he may commit, is nevertheless always good—just as the dirt on a nut only contaminates the shell while the kernel remains pure. Thus, Gentiles, as Rabbi Yosef contends, as “animals which have the form of men,” exist to serve the exalted Jew.” Chagigah 15b

~“all things pertaining to the Goyim are like a desert; the first person [Jew] to come along and take them can claim them as his own.” Babba Bathra 54b

~“Just as a livestock owner has the right to slaughter his animals, so the Talmud decrees to Jews the right to kill Gentiles.”

~“If you eat with a ‘goy’ it is the same as eating with a dog.”
(Tosapoth, Jebamoth 94b)

~“On  the house of the non-Jew one looks as on the fold of cattle.”
-Tosefta, Erebin, 1

~“Animals must not be allowed to go near the Goim, because they are suspected of having intercourse with them. Nor must women cohabit with them because they are over-sexed.” Abhodah Zarah 22a

~“…because when Gentile men come to their neighbors’ houses to commit adultery with their wives and do not find them at home, they fornicate with the sheep in the barns instead. And sometimes even when their neighbors’ wives are at home, they prefer to fornicate with the animals; for they love the sheep of the Israelites more than their own women.” Abhodah Zarah 22b

~“God  created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night.” -Midrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L

+Other quotes from the Talmud about Goyim (Gentiles):

~“If a Gentile robs a Jew, he must pay him back. But if a Jew robs a Gentile,
the Jew may keep the loot. Likewise, if a Gentile kills a Jew, the Gentile is to be killed. But if a Jew kills a Gentile, the Jew is to go free.” Sanhedrin 57a

~“How  to interpret the word ‘robbery.’ A non-Jew is forbidden to steal, rob, or take  women slaves, etc., from a non-Jew or from a Jew. But a Jew is NOT forbidden to do all this to a non-Jew.” -Tosefta, Qbda Zara, 5

~“Gentiles are outside the legal protection of the Law of Israel.”
Baba Kamma 38a

~“Gentile girls are in a state of uncleanness from birth, and marriage with them is prohibited.” Baba Mezia 114b

~“Girls born of the ‘goyim’ are in a state of ‘niddah’ (menstrual uncleanness!) from birth.” (Abodah Zarah 36b)

~“Even the best of the ‘goyim’ should all be killed.” (Soferim 15)

~“Sexual intercourse between the ‘goyim’ is like intercourse between animals.” (Sanhedrin 74b)

~“Thou  shalt not do injury to thy neighbor, but it is not said, ‘Thou shalt not do injury to a non-Jew.'” -Mishna Sanhedryn 57

~”A  Jewish man is obligated to say the following prayer every day: Thank you God for not making me a gentile, a woman or a slave.” -Menahoth 43b-44a.

~“If a  non-Jew wants a Jew to stand witness against a Jew in a Court of Law, and if the Jew could give fair evidence, he is forbidden to do it; but if a Jew wants a Jew to be a witness in a similar case against a non-Jew, he may do it.”
-Schulchan Qruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 28, Art. 3 and 4 Page 41 of 44

~“At  the time of the Cholhamoed the transaction of any kind of business is forbidden. But it is permitted to cheat a non-Jew, because cheating of  non-Jew at any time pleases the Lord.” -Schulchan Qruch, Orach Chaim 539

If you are not born Jewish (are a non-Jew) you are considered a gentile and your only hope for salvation is to salute your allegiance to the Noahide Lawsaccording to the Talmud.

3. Blasphemy against Messiah and His Mother, Miryiam & Messiah will kill all non-Jews:

~“‘Yeshu’ is in Hell being boiled in hot excrement.” (Gittin 57a)
[’Yeshu’ is an acronym for the Jewish curse, ‘May his (Yahushua’s) name be wiped out forevermore.’]

~“Yeshu was sexually immoral and worshipped a brick.” (Sanhedrin 107b)

~“Yeshu was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness and refused to repent.” (Sotah 47a)

~“Miriam the hairdresser had sex with many men.” (Shabbath 104b, Hebrew Edition only)

~“She who was the descendant of princes and governors (the virgin Mary) played the harlot with carpenters.” (Sanhedrin 106a)

~“Christians who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations.” (Rosh Hashanah 17a)

~“As  soon as the King Messiah will declare himself, He will destroy Rome and make a wilderness of it. Thorns and weeds will grow in the Pope’s palace. Then He will start a merciless war on non-Jews and will overpower them. He will slay them in masses, kill their kings and lay waste the whole Roman land. He will say to the Jews: ‘I am the King Messiah for whom you have been waiting. Take the silver and gold from the non-Jew.’ ” -Josiah 60, 6. Rabbi Abarbanel to Daniel 7, 13

4. Adam had intercourse and sexual relations with every animal in the Garden of Eden:

“R. Eleazar further stated: What is meant by the Scriptural text, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh?  This teaches that Adam had intercourse with every beast and animal but found no satisfaction until he cohabited with Eve.”
-Yebamoth 63a 

5. There is a Conspiracy against Yahuwah’s Name:

+ Yahuwah’s Name was replaced with Adonai:
“And thenceforth priests ceased to bless Israel with the name of Yahuwah, but used “Adonai” (the Lord).”
-Babylonian Talmud – TRACT YOMAH (DAY OF ATONEMENT). CHAPTER IV.  Pg. 60

+ It is forbidden to speak the ‘Divine Name’ during prayer for mealtime:
“nor may the persons who join to say grace after meals mention the Divine name.”
Babylonian Talmud – TRACT MEGILLA. CHAPTER III. Pg. 64

+ The Name of Yahuwah is not to be spoken outside the Temple:
“Yahuwah” must not be pronounced outside of the Temple.”
-Babylonian Talmud – TRACT YOMAH. CHAPTER VII.  Pg. 100

Anyone who speaks the ‘Divine Name’ is guilty of blasphemy:
“MISHNA VI.: A blasphemer is not guilty, unless he mentioned the proper name of God (Yahuwah).”
-TRACT SANHEDRIN (SUPREME COUNCIL). CHAPTER VII. Pg. 166 –  RULES AND REGULATIONS CONCERNING HOW THE EXAMINATION CONCERNING BLASPHEMY SHOULD BE CONDUCTED.

+ Whoever speaks the ‘Divine Name’ is guilty and the punishment is death:
“To what purpose is this written? It reads earlier [ibid. 16]: “But he that pronounced the name of the Lord shall be put to death”… So is the decree of R. Mair. The sages, however, maintain: For the unique proper Name death is the punishment; and for the ‘pseudonyms’ (Elohim, Eloah, El, Shadai, ETC.) it is only a warning by a negative commandment, and the punishment is as for the transgression of a negative commandment.”
-Babylonian Talmud – CHAPTER VII.  Pg. 166.  HOW THE EXAMINATION CONCERNING BLASPHEMY SHOULD BE CONDUCTED.

+ According to the Talmud, if you are not a Jew, you are the ‘children of Noah’. Children of Noah are not permitted to speak the ‘Divine Name’ or the pseudonyms of Yahuwah, this includes, Elohim, Eloah, El, Shadai; just to name a few:
“(Says the Gemara:) Itz’hak of Navha differs with R. Maisha, who said: One of the children of Noah, who blasphemed God by any of His pseudonyms (Elohim, Eloah, El, Shaddai, ETC.) whatsoever is guilty, and is put to death, even according to the rabbis.”
-Babylonian Talmud – CHAPTER VII.  Pg. 167.  HOW THE EXAMINATION CONCERNING BLASPHEMY SHOULD BE CONDUCTED.

+Prohibition of speaking the name of Yahuwah even when written in Scripture:
“265:1 It is PROHIBITED TO MENTION THE NAME OF Yahuwah as it is written, and we read it with the expression “Adonay.” see a footnote in Chapter VII. We have to add thereto, that none of the Jews –not even the reformers of that time– dared to mention this Holy Name as it is written, and wherever it was mentioned they read it “Adonay.”
-Babylonian Talmud – Footnotes: END OF TRACT SANHEDRIN, PART II. (HAGGADA), AND OF VOLUME XVI.

+ The guilty to be burned, and their family punished because the Name of Yahuwah is expressed instead of Adonai:
“Hanina b. Tradian was then brought before them and questioned why he occupied himself with the Torah, and he answered: Because I am so commanded by the Lord my God. The decree was then rendered that he should be burned, his wife killed, and his daughter to be taken to the house of prostitutes. [He to be burned, because he used to express the name Yahuwah as it is written (and not Adonai as it is to be read instead),”
-Babylonian Talmud – TRACT ABUDA ZARA (IDOLATRY).  CHAPTER I.  Pg. 31 a lesson taught by the rabbis.

6. Forbidden to eat any food from a non-Jew whatever a non-Jew cooks, even wine:
This makes you understand why food that does abide by the dietary laws of Leviticus does not have the Kosher certificate.

“It is forbidden to eat bread (made from any of the five species of grain: wheat, barley, oats, rye, and spelt) that was baked by a non-Jew for his own consumption, unless comparable Jewish bread is not available or a Jew was involved in the baking or in making or maintaining the fire.”
Part II: Yoreh De’ah – Chapter 10a

“It is forbidden to eat food that was cooked intentionally by a non-Jew if the food is of a type that is not usually eaten raw and is sometimes served at state dinners, unless a Jew contributed to the cooking or the fire.”
Part II: Yoreh De’ah – Chapter 10a

“It is forbidden to drink common types of intoxicating beverages, except for those made from grain or honey, if they were made by a non-Jew and are being drunk at a place where people meet to drink”
Part II: Yoreh De’ah – Chapter 10a

“It is forbidden to drink wine (made from grapes; see 123:8) that was touched by a non-Jew.” Part II: Yoreh De’ah – Chapter 10b

  The point of this article is not anti-Semitism. Because in fact, we here at the FOY Ministy are Hebrew Israelites. We are against the Talmud. Not for personal reasons, but for moral/ethical reasons and especially because Yahushua, our Messiah was against the Talmud (the traditions of men). We love ALL people, including those that are of the state of Israel, the Jewish people. And as we have mentioned in our other publications. Our ethnicity does not matter! It doesn’t matter if you are white or black, Jewish, or Non-Jewish. Stop the hate, stop the division. We are all equal and created in the image of Elohim (Gen./Ber. 1:26). A mixed multitude came out of Egypt with Mosheh (Moses). It was not just descendants of Abraham. The Ten Commandments, Torah, Feast Days and Messiah is for EVERYONE, male AND female.

“There is not Jew nor Greek, there is not slave nor free, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Messiah Yahushua.”
-Galatians 3:28

“where there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, foreigner, Scythian, slave, free, but Messiah is all, and in all.”
-Colossians 3:11

8 thoughts on “6 things you didn’t know about the Talmud

  1. Robin

    I had heard about some of these things, but didn’t know myself for sure. I know there are two main types of Jewish genetics – Khazar/Ashkenasi (who were converts and not a real bloodline) and Sephardic (which are supposed to be bloodline). There is a lot of confusion on being “Jewish” and following the Jewish religion. I have read an account of a Sephardic in Israel that said they are very much discriminated against by the majority of Ashkenasic, and that the Ashkenasic hold most all the power positions in Israel, a comment that I find interesting.

    Another is a tv film I saw showing the real feelings of “Jews” against Christians in Israel. Extremely disrespectful, very disturbing. However, they don’t want this generally known because they depend a lot on the tourist economy. To be fair, I don’t think all Jewish people project this sentiment in such a public manner. Also, maybe they are afraid Christians will overrun or contaminate their culture there since it is considered THE holy place for Christianity. It is their home after all.

    Another item is proof of matrilineal descent. I have read a very convincing argument that indicated they use this because they cannot prove descent from Adam, only Eve. Now this makes you wonder, doesn’t it? That maybe Gentiles are descended from Adam and the others from ??? and this is the only way they can claim “originality”. Maybe this is the true source of “gentile/Jew” schism. But again, this leads to “better than thou”, but could explain the outright hate in their Talmud.

  2. Christine

    Jews are the synagogue of satan they’re NOT Israelites they have stolen white peoples identity (true Israelites of the Scriptures) jews hail from khazzaria no connection whatsover to Messiah, they’re the seed of cain “the 1980 Jewish Almanac we read: “Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.” Tricksters just like their father the devil beware.

  3. Mark

    I agree we need to stop the insanity of judging others based on hearsay and traditions. I suspected some of what I read in this article but this is way more than I could have imagined. I have a friend who is enamored with anything “Jewish” but I felt the Ruach Kodesh was warning me to study the scriptures for truth and watch out for tradition. Our Messiah is Jewish but so are the people who had him crucified. That says it all. We must be aware not to try to be like any other man, rather we need to be like Yahshua. How do we do this? Follow Torah, Keep the Feasts, love our neighbor and above love Yahweh! Shalom, brothers and sisters in Yahshua.

    1. Followers of YAH Post author

      Shalom and Greetings,
      Yes Mark, you are right, we definitely need to watch out for tradition. While there is nothing sinful about some traditions, we have to be watchful, but some that seem harmless could be the most wicked! You are exactly correct, we need to be like Yahushua! HalleluYah!

      Have a blessed day,

    WHAT THE JEWISH TALMUD TEACHES ABOUT CHRISTIANS
    In the preceding chapter we saw what the Jews think of the Founder of the Christian religion, and how much they despise his name. This being so, it would not be expected that they would have any better opinion about those who follow Jesus the Nazarene. In fact, nothing more abominable can be imagined than what they have to say about Christians. They say that they are idolaters, the worst kind of people, much worse than the Turks, murderers, fornicators, impure animals, like dirt, unworthy to be called men, beasts in human form, worthy of the name of beasts, cows, asses, pigs, dogs, worse than dogs; that they propagate after the manner of beasts, that they have diabolic origin, that their souls come from the devil and return to the devil in hell after death; and that even the body of a dead Christian is nothing different from that of an animal.
    1. IDOLATERS
    Since Christians follow the teachings of that man, whom the Jews regard as a Seducer and an Idolater, and since they worship him as God, it clearly follows that they merit the name of idolater, in no way different from those among whom the Jews lived before the birth of Christ, and whom they taught should be exterminated by every possible means.

    This is best demonstrated by the names they give Christians, and by the unmistakable words of Maimonides which prove that all who bear the name of Christian are idolaters. And anyone who examines Jewish books which speak of the “Worshippers of the Stars and Planets,” “Epicureans,” “Samaritans,” etc., cannot but conclude that these idolaters are none other than Christians. The Turks are always called “Ismaelites,” never idolaters.
    2. CHRISTIANS WORSE THAN THE TURKS
    Maimonides in Hilkoth Maakhaloth (ch. IX) says:
    “It is not permitted to drink the wine of a stranger who becomes a convert, that is, one who accepts the seven precepts of Noah, but is permitted to gain some benefit from it. It is allowed to leave wine alone with him, but not to place it before him. The same is permitted in the case of all gentiles who are not idolaters, such as the Turks [Ismaelites]. A Jew, however, is not permitted to drink their wine, although he may use it to his own advantage.”
    3. MURDERERS
    In Abhodah Zarah (22a) it says:
    “A Jew must not associate himself with gentiles because they are given to the shedding of blood.”
    Likewise in Iore Dea (153, 2):
    “An Israelite must not associate himself with the Akum [Christians] because they are given to the shedding of blood.”
    In the Abhodah Zarah (25b) it says:
    “The Rabbis taught: If a Goi joins an Israelite on the road, he [the Jew] should walk on his right side. Rabbi Ismael, the son of Rabbi Jochanan the nephew of Beruka, says: if he carries a sword, let the Jew walk on his right side. If the Goi carries a stick, the Jew should walk on his left side. If he is climbing a hill or descending a steep incline, the Jew must not go in front with the Goi behind, but the Jew must go behind and the Goi in front, nor must he stoop down in front of him for fear the Goi might crack his skull. And if he should ask the Jew how far he is going, he should pretend he is going a long way, as Jacob our Father said to the impious Esau: until I come to my Lord in Seir (Gen. XXXIII, 14-17), but it adds: Jacob set out for Sukoth.”

    In Orach Chaiim (20, 2) it says:
    “Do not sell your overcoat (Talith) with the fringes to an Akum, lest he should join up with a Jew on the road and kill him. It is also forbidden to exchange or lend your overcoat with a Gentile, except for a short time and when there is nothing to be feared from him.”
    4. FORNICATORS
    In the Abhodah Zarah (15b) it says:
    “Animals of the masculine sex must not be left in the barns of the Gentiles with their men, nor animals of the feminine sex with their women; much less must animals of the feminine sex be left with their men and of the masculine sex with their women. Nor must sheep be left to the care of their shepherds; nor must any intercourse be had with them; nor must children be given into their care to learn to read or to learn a trade.”
    In the same tract a little farther on (22a) it is explained why animals must not be allowed in the barns of Gentiles, and why Jews are not permitted to have sexual intercourse with them:
    “Animals must not be allowed to go near the Goim, because they are suspected of having intercourse with them. Nor must women cohabit with them because they are over-sexed.”
    In fol. 22b of the same book the reason is given why animals especially of the feminine sex must be kept away from their women: “…because when Gentile men come to their neighbors’ houses to commit adultery with their wives and do not find them at home, they fornicate with the sheep in the barns instead. And sometimes even when their neighbors’ wives are at home, they prefer to fornicate with the animals; for they love the sheep of the Israelites more than their own women.”
    It is for the same reason that animals are not to be entrusted to Goi shepherds, nor children to their educators.
    5. UNCLEAN
    The Talmud gives two reasons why the Goim are unclean: because they eat unclean things, and because they themselves have not been cleansed (from original sin) on Mount Sinai. In Schabbath, (145b) it says:
    “Why are the Goim unclean? Because they eat abominable things and animals that crawl on their belly.”
    Likewise in Abhodah Zarah, 22b:
    “Why are the Goim unclean? Because they were not present at Mount Sinai. For when the serpent entered into Eve he infused her with uncleanness. But the Jews were cleansed from this when they stood on Mount Sinai; the Goim, however, who were not on Mount Sinaim were not cleansed.”

    6. COMPARED TO DUNG
    “When ten persons are praying together in one place and they say Kaddisch, or Kedoschah, anyone, even though he does not belong there, may respond Amen. There are some, however, who say that no dung or Akum must be present.”
    In Iore Dea (198, 48) Hagah, it says:
    “When Jewish women come out of a bath they must take care to meet a friend first, and not something unclean or a Chrsitian. For if so, a woman, if she wants to keep holy, should go back and bathe again.”
    It is worthy of note that the following list of unclean things is a given in Biur Hetib, a commentary on the Schulchan Arukh:
    “A woman must wash herself again if she sees any unclean things, such as a dog, an ass, or People of the Earth; a Christian (Akum), a camel, a pig, a horse, and a leper.
    7. NOT LIKE MEN, BUT BEASTS
    In Kerithuth (6b p. 78) it says:
    “The teaching of the Rabbis is: He who pours oil over a Goi, and over dead bodies is freed from punishment. This is true for an animal because it is not a man. But how can it be said that by pouring oil over a Goi one is freed from punishment, since a Goi is also a man? But this is not true, for it is written: Ye are my flock, the flock of my pasture are men (Ezechiel, XXXIV, 31). You are thus called men, but the Goim are not called men.”
    In the Tract Makkoth (7b) he is said to be guilty of killing “except when, if intending to kill an animal he kills a man by mistake, or intending to kill a Goi, he kills an Israelite.”
    In Orach Chaiim (225, 10) it says:
    “He who sees beautiful creatures, even though it be an Akum or an animal, let him say ‘Blessed art thou Our Lord God, King of the Universe, who has placed such things on the earth!'”
    8. THEY DIFFER ONLY IN FORM FROM BEASTS
    In Midrasch Talpioth (fol. 225d) it says:
    “God created them in the form of men for the glory of Israel. But Akum were created for the sole end of ministering unto them [the Jews] day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved from this service. It is becoming to the son of a king [an Israelite] that animals in their natural form, and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him.”
    We can quote here also what is said in Orach Chaiim, 57, 6a:
    “If pigs are to be pitied when they suffer from disease, because their intestines are similar to ours, how much more should the Akum be pitied when thus affected.”
    9. ANIMALS
    In Zohar, II, (64b) it says:
    “…People who worship idols, and who are called cow and ass, as it is written: I have a cow and an ass…”
    Rabbi Bechai, in his book Kad Hakkemach, ch. I, beginning with the word Geulah – redemption – referring to Psalm 80, v.13:
    The boar out of the wood doth waste it, says:
    “The letter ain is dropped [suspended] the same as these worshippers are followers of him who was suspended.”
    Buxtorf (Lex.) says:
    “By wild pig the author here means the Christians who eat pork and, like pigs, have destroyed the vineyard of Israel, the City of Jerusalem, and who believe in the ‘suspended’ Christ. Else the letter ain is dropped in this word because they, as worshippers of Christ who was hanged, are also dropped.”
    Rabbi Edels, in commenting on Kethuboth (110b) says:
    “The Psalmist compares the Akum to the unclean beast in the woods.”
    10. WORSE THAN ANIMALS
    Rabbi Schelomo Iarchi (Raschi), famous Jewish commentator, explaining the law of Moses (Deuter. XIV, 21) forbidding the eating of meat of wounded animals, but which must be given to the ‘stranger in thy gates,’ or which, according to Exodus (XXII, 30) is to be thrown to the dogs, has this to say:
    “…for he is like a dog. Are we to take to word ‘dog’ here literally? By no means. For the text in speaking of dead bodies says, Or thou mayest sell it to an alien. This applies much more to the meat of wounded animals, for which it is permitted to accept payment. Why therefore does the Scripture say it may be thrown to ‘dogs?’ In order to teach you that a dog is to be more respected than the Nokhri.”
    11. THEY PROPAGATE LIKE BEASTS
    In the Sanhedrin (74b) Tosephoth, it says:
    “The sexual intercourse of a Goi is like that of a beast.”
    And in Kethuboth (3b) it says:
    “The seed of a Goi is worth the same as that of a beast.”
    Hence it is to be inferred that Christian marriage is not true marriage.
    In Kidduschim (68a), it says:
    “…How do we know this? Rabbi Huna says: You can read: Remain here with the ass, that is, with a people like an ass. Hence it appears that they are not capable of contracting marriage.”
    And in Eben Haezer (44, 8):
    “If a Jew enters into marriage with an Akum (Christian), or with his servant, the marriage is null. For they are not capable of entering into matrimony. Likewise if an Akum or a servant enter into matrimony with a Jew, the marriage is null.”
    In Zohar (II, 64b) it says:
    “Rabbi Abba says: If only idolaters alone had sexual intercourse, the world would not continue to exist. Hence we are taught that a Jew should not give way to those infamous robbers. For if these propagate in greater numbers, it will be impossible for us to continue to exist because of them. For they give birth to sucklings the same as dogs.”
    12. CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL
    In Zohar (I, 28b) we read:
    “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, etc. (Genes. III, 1.) ‘More subtle’ that is towards evil; ‘than all beasts’ that is, the idolatrous people of the earth. For they are the children of the ancient serpent which seduced Eve.”
    The best argument used by the Jews to prove that Christians are of the race of the devil is the fact that they are uncircumcized. The foreskin on non-Jews prevents them from being called the children of the Most High God. For by circumcision the name of God -Schaddai – is complete in the flesh of a circumcized Jew. The form of the letter Isch is in his nostrils, the letter Daleth in his (bent) arm, and ain appears in his sexual organ by circumcision. In non-circumcized gentiles, therefore, such as Christians, there are only two letters,Isch and Daleth, which make the word Sched, which means devil. They are, therefore, children of the Sched, the devil.
    13. THE SOULS OF CHRISTIANS ARE EVIL AND UNCLEAN
    The teaching of the Jews is that God created two natures, one good and the other evil, or one nature with two sides, one clean and the other unclean. From the unclean side, called Keliphah – rind, or scabby crust – the souls of Christians are said to have come.
    In Zohar (I, 131a) it says:
    “idolatrous people, however, since they exist, befoul the world, because their souls come out of the unclean side.”
    And in Emek Hammelech (23d) it says:
    “The souls of the impious come from Keliphah, which is death and the shadows of death.”
    Zohar (I, 46b, 47a) goes to show that this unclean side is the left side, from which the souls of the Christians come:
    “And he created every living thing, that is, the Israelites, because they are the children of the Most High God, and their holy souls come out from Him. But where do the souls of the idolatrous gentiles come from? Rabbi Eliezer says: from the left side, which makes their souls unclean. They are therefore all unclean and they pollute all who come in contact with them.”
    14. AFTER DEATH THEY GO DOWN TO HELL
    The Elders teach that Abraham sits at the gate of Gehenna and prevents any circumcized person from entering there; but that all the uncircumcized go down to hell.
    In Rosch Haschanach (17a) it says:
    “Heretics and Epicureans and Traitors go down into hell.”
    15. THE FATE OF DEAD CHRISTIANS
    The bodies of Christians after death are called by the odious name of Pegarim, which is the word used in Holy Scripture for the dead bodies of the damned and of animals, but never for the pious dead who are called Metim. Thus the Schulchan Arukh orders that a dead Christian must be spoken of in the same way as a dead animal.
    In Iore Dea (377, 1) it says:
    “Condolences must not be offered to anyone on account of the death of his servants or handmaids. All that may be said is ‘May God restore your lost one, the same as we say to a man who has lost a cow or an ass.'”
    Nor must Christians be avoided for seven days after they have buried someone, as the law of Moses commands, since they are not men; for the burial of an animal does not pollute one.
    In Iebhammoth (61a) it says:
    “The Nokhrim are not rendered unclean by a burial. For it is said: Ye are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture; ye are men. You are thus called men, but not the Nokhrim.”
