Pamphlets


Pamphlet 1 - discussion of Chazal's error in saying that there is spontaneous generation of living organisms from non-living matter.

Pamphlet 3 - a zoological error in the Torah: neither hare (arnevet) nor hyrax (shafan) bring up their cud.

Pamphlet 4 - Chazal supposed that the earth is flat and the sky is a dome, which served them as basis for making Halachic rulings on the times of beginning and end of the Sabbath.

Pamphlet 5 - clarification of Chazal's knowledge regarding the length of the lunar cycle (the synodic month).

Pamphlet 6 - clarification of Chazal's knowledge regarding the length of the year, which served as basis for determining the Jewish calendar.

Introduction

A booklet on a specific topic. The Hebrew word kuntress comes from the Latin commentraiu, meaning a pamphlet with comments. These nine pamphlets are the conceptual and factual basis for all of Daat Emet's written work. They explain and prove our main teaching: the Holy Writ and Halacha are not Divine creations, as Jewish tradition claims, but the work of man. The pamphlets present factual errors in Halacha and textual distortions in the Scriptures which lead to only one possible conclusion, even according to some of the rabbis: Halacha is a human creation!!
