the spirit; with the Bible as their
portable homeland, they built
flourishing communities in Baby-
lonia, Egypt, and Syria.
Within the boundaries of the
Holy Land the Temple became a
symbol of unity. Three times a
year, Jerusalem and its suburbs
would be dotted with tents as hun-
dreds of thousands of visitors made
their pilgrimage for the festivals
of Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot.
The Synagogue was established,
and slowly it developed into a
house of prayer, of study, and of
assembly.
As if they knew that their sur-
vival would one day depend on
study, the people concentrated on
education, which they considered
as important as prayer. The Bible
said, "You shall teach these words
to your children," and Jewish sages
added, Talmud Torah leneged ku-
lam: "Most important of all is the

, study of Torah."
Of Judea's many teachers the
most noted were Shammai and
Hillel, who lived in the 1st cen-
tury B.C.E. They were friendly
rivals, as different in personality
as two human beings could be.
Shammai was stern, strict, and eas-
ily irritated. Hillel was even-
tempered, kind, and patient.
Born and trained in Babylonia
Hillel was drawn to Jerusalem by
the reputation of its scholars.
There he continued his studies,
until he became the head of a
renowned academy and the leader
of the Sanhedrin.
Hillel's wisdom is revealed in
the famous story about a heathen
who tried to ridicule Judaism. This
man, who did not believe in God,
said to Shammai that he would
become a Jew if Shammai could
teach him the Torah while the
student stood on one leg without
tiring. Shammai angrily threw him
out and he came to Hillel, who
cheerfully undertook the assign-
ment. Basing his answer on the
1 Bible's command to "love your
neighbor as yourself," he said,
"What is hateful to you, do not
do to another. This is the whole
Torah; the rest only explains this
law." Acocrding to the story, the
heathen was so impressed that he
became a Jew.
Many other wise sayings of
Hillel have come down to us. Here
are a few:
"Do not judge your neighbor
until you know what it is like to
be in his place."
"Do not separate yourself from
the community."
"Reviewing a lesson 100 times
cannot be compared with review-
ing it 101 times."
Hillel's warm approach to cold
law won everyone's heart. After
his death, Ms name stood for an
ideal combination of scholarship
and kindliness, of deep thought
and simple devotion to God.

Almost 50 per cent of all deaths
in the 45-64 year age bracket are
due to heart and circulatory dis-
