  1. Title: Greek Mythology
    Author: Harold Klein ,

    Shalom Rabbi,I am a frequent listener to your Shiurim. Per the Greek Mythology talk, if I may add a dimension and perhaps a question. It is understood you can't delve too deep into some of the subject matter. However, this discussion stimulated this thought - What are the concerns and/or the Halachic point of view regarding Greek Mythology and Practices at the time that may have either inspired Jewish Minhagim or Jewish ideas that sparked Greek practices or even beliefs. I read (in awe) Professor Lieberman's brilliant work "Greek in Jewish Palestine/Hellenism in Jewish Palestine" and there is much to consider as there is on our Pesach Seder. I know Professor Lieberman was affiliated with JTS, but he as I understand it was a fully Frum Yid and his genius as evidenced in his sharing of sources in said work, incomparable.

    When I asked Rabbi Forschiemer whether it is permissible to read Percy Jackson (telling him it was about Greek Mythology) he said that it is permitted to read it so long as you make light of it.He further considered it Avodah Zara Shebatlah.
