In this, If I Am Not for Myself is a manifesto for a whole generation of Jewish radical activists who refuse to be deterred by the threat of being labelled, and libelled, as : Daphna Baram.

There is an old quote from Rabbi Hillel that goes, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me. If I am only for myself, what am I. And if not now, when?” To the bystander Jews who don’t see the autocratic parallels between Trump and Hitler, I beg of you to open your eyes. Hate is hate, whether directed against you or not.

It is not enough to be silent; The answer to Rabbi Hillel’s last question is. The first clause of the aphorism roughly translates: "If I am not for myself, who will be for me?" 1 The phrase distinguishes between two selves - "I" (ani in Hebrew) and "me" (li).

It implies that somehow we can have a self called "I" and a self-called "me.". If I am not for myself, who is for me. not only implies that it is legitimate to pursue your own interests, but also starts you thinking of the best way to pursue your interests. Your answer to “If I were not for myself—if I had to rely totally on others—who would be for me?” will give you a shrewd idea of who are your friends and.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror.

I can take the next thing that comes along.' Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of. If I am only for myself, what am I. And if not now, when?” Who said this and what do you think it means.

This statement was made by Hillel the Elder (in Pirkei Avot Chapter ), the leader of the Jewish Supreme Court in the Land of Israel in the early part of the 1st Century CE. If I Am Not for Myself: The Liberal Betrayal of the Jews. Although it has since been retracted, in Arab leaders introduced the ``Zionism equals racism'' equation to the United Nations.

Wisse views this move as part of an Arab propaganda campaign against Israel, which she believes the predominantly Arab states seek to annihilate. “If I am not for myself, who will be for me?” A discussion for developing a practice of self-care The following activity uses Jewish text— both traditional and contemporary— to explore questions pertaining to self-care and how we can best improve our practice.

Wisse. If I Am Not For Myself is a passionate, thought-provoking exploration of what it means to be Jewish in the twenty-first century. It traces the author’s upbringing in s Jewish-American suburbia, his anti-war and pro-Palestinian activism on the British left, and life as a Jew among Muslims in.

In Avot, Hillel stated "If I am not for myself, who is for me. And being for my own self, what am ‘I’. And if not now, when?" The third part contains the admonition to postpone no duty, the same admonition he gave with reference to study: "Say not, 'When I have free time I shall study'; for you may perhaps never have any free time."Born: BCE, Babylon, Parthian Empire.

Without this deeper sense of self importance and self-worth, Hillel’s imperative, “If am not for myself who, will be for me,” is just hollow, pretty prose.

I learned this lesson pretty intimately in ninth grade. If I am not to act for myself, who will act for me, take care of me, help me.

I have found, though, that the answer is if you act philanthropically, you are taken care of. That is, not to negate the self, but live by "love thy neighbor as thy self", in respects to self first.

So right now I chose to be proud of my self, damn proud, I'm still here, I'm happy, I'm working as hard as I can, Yes I procrastinate a great deal, Yes I do take the piss on occasion, but fuck it!; I'm a decent sort.

Certainly not a saint,of course, but I don't consider myself malicious or negligent. Furious blast at anti-Semitism and the liberals who tolerate it.
