Throughout the generations, Jews have circumcised every male child at the age of eight days (or later, if the baby is not well enough for the procedure at eight days). He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. In cases of rape, Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Aurbach allows the woman to use methods which prevent pregnancy after intercourse.15 The same analysis used in other cases of emotional harm might be applied here.

Anti-semitism is the word used to designate the hatred of Jews because they are Jews. Those who reject an afterlife filled with judgment, recompense, and repercussion for earthly deeds often fall into hedonistic lifestyles. Although Jews have certainly considered the nature of G-d, man, the universe, life and the afterlife at great length (see Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism), there is no mandated, official, definitive belief on these subjects, outside of the very general concepts discussed above.

And contrary to the taunts of Albert’s classmates, Jews do not have horns. Should the rubble be cleared, thus desecrating the sabbath, seeing that the Jew may not be under it (he may have been the one that got away)?

These traditions stand in contrast to Western models of peacemaking and mediation, which generally assume “transparent honesty” and trustworthiness of the mediator, [63] not to mention the problem of credibility such a mediator would face in subsequent peacemaking efforts. [64] At the core of both Jewish rabbinic and Arab Islamic traditions are values of shame, honor, and humility, and, therefore, peacemaking efforts focus on avoiding shame, restoring honor, and encouraging humility. [65] Additionally, as these societies are hierarchical in nature, the peacemaker must either be holy or a well-respected leader in the community.
