HASIDISM

Hasidism is some crackpot shit.

There's Chabad who diverged from Judaism's premise that the messiah did NOT come yet.

And there's Satmar who thinks that any idea that does not come from ultraorthodoxy is automatically heretical for a Jew to accept. This means any idea.

The one I like is Chavakuk, which apparently only exists in Bat Ayin and is the only one I know to do something relatively new with Hasidim in decades. Though personally I'd like it better if they renamed themselves "Chabakkukians".

SJ said...

My ideal kind of Judaism would be much more science oriented, FAR less ritual oriented, and a couple of community rituals here and there.

the torah wouldn't be taken seriously as a historical account at all, just as a book with teachings, somethin like that.

You know that's already been invented - it's called Reform.

SJ said...

Reform isn't a real option where I live and still it's too leftist for me.

Atheism is the way to go.
