Rarity of Polygamy in Jewish Tradition

During the centuries of the
patriarchs polygamy w a s
customary in the surrounding
civilizations, but the ideal
state of human society, in the
mind of the primitive Israel-
ite, was a monogamous one
(clearly indicated by the fact
that Adam was given one
wife only).
The first instance of biga-
my occurred in the family
of the cursed Cain. Noah
and his sons had only
one wife each; so had Abra-
ham originally, though he
was persuaded to marry his
slave Hagar at the urgent re-
quest of his wife who deemed
herself barren. Isaac had only
one wife, and Jacob married
two sisters, because he was
deceived by his father-in-law,
Laban. The sons of Jacob as
well as Aaron and Moses
seem to have lived in monog-
amy, 'according to Encyclo-
pedia Judaica.
But Jacob had children
from the two maidservants
of his wives; they were
brought to him by his wives
at a time when they thought
themselves barren. Now, pro-
creation is not only consid-
ered a blessing by the Bible,
but a commandment, as the
world was created to be in-
habited. God's blessings be-
stowed on Israel always
included fecundity. The Hur-
rian society had the custom
of concubinage whereby the
wife, if childless, had to pro-

(ban), attributed to Rabbi
Gershon ben Judah, Encyclo-
pedia Judaica states.
In the state of Israel, big-
amy was prohibited by the
1951 law on equal rights for
women, although immigrants
arriving with more than one
wife are allowed to maintain
that status. In the last chap-
ter of the Book of Proverbs,
the ideal picture of family
life is presented, and the
"woman of worth" is the only
wife in the home.

Legends of Ten Lost Tribes

The legend of the 10 Lost
Tribes is one of the most
fascinating in Judaism, ac-
cording to the Encyclopedia
Judaica.
The Kingdom of Israel con-
sisted of 10 tribes (actually
'12 tribes but excluding Judah
and Benjamin who consti-
tuted the southern Kingdom
of Judah) and fell in 722
BCE. Its inhabitants were
exiled and disappeared from
the stage of history. How-
ever, t h e passage in I
Chronicles 5:26 to the effect
that the 10 Tribes were in
exile "unto this day," and
the prophecies of Isaiah
(11:11), Jeremiah (31:8) and
especially Ezekiel (37:19-24)
kept alive the belief that the
10 Tribes had maintained a
separate existence and that
the time would come when
they would be rejoined with
their brethren and descen-
dants of the Exile of Judah
to Babylon.
The belief in the continued
existence of the 10 Tribes
was regarded as an incon-
trovertible fact during the
period of the Second Temple

and of the Talmud. There
were, of course, some who
opposed the general belief.
Rabbi Akiva expressed his
emphatic . view . that . "the
10 Tribes shall not return

again." Throughout the Mid-
dle Ages and until compara-
tively recent times there were

claims of the existence of the
10 Lost Tribes as well as
attempts by travelers and
explorers, Jewish and non-
Jewish, to discover the 10
Lost Tribes or to identify
different peoples with them.
Various theories, one more
far-fetched than the other,
have been suggested for this
purpose on the flimsiest of
evidence.
Special interest is attached
to the traveler Aaron (An-
tonio) Levi de Montezinos
who, on his return to Am-
sterdam from South America
in 1644, told a story of hav-
ing found Indians beyond the
mountain passes of the Cor-
dilleras who greeted him by
reciting the "Shema." Ma-
nasseh Ben Israel, then rabbi
of Amsterdam, not only be-
lieved this story, but devoted
to it his book "Hope of Israel"
(1650, 1652) which he dedi-
cated to the English parlia-
ment. He used this "evi-
dence" as an argument to
Oliver Cromwell in his ap-
peal to permit the return of
the Jews to England, then
the only country which had
no Jews. As long 'as this
situation existed, the fulfill-
ment of the prophecy that
the coming of the Messiah
would take place only when
the Jews were scattered in
the four quarters of the
world, meaning: in all coun-
tries of the world without
exception, was impossible.
This argument played a sig-
nificant role in creating the
atmosphere which eventually
brought about the return of
the Jews to England.

vide her husband (who other-
wise would have had the
right for a divorce) with a
handmaid in order to bear
children. Special legislation
existed for the protection of
these children and the con-
cubines themselves. From a
purely practical, realistic
point of view, the tremend-
ous importance of children
to continue and re-inforce the
family at a fame when small
nomadic tribes and clans had
to defend themselves from
catastrophe, is evident. In
the case of the patriarchs,
there were additional religi-
ous considerations.
There are good reasons
why polygamy was sanctioned
in ancient civilizations, far
more hazardous than that of
a man who was single. In-
deed, the Bible does not limit
the right of a man to have
more than one wife, but, es-
pecially because of economic
conditions, it seems that very
few people made use of this
right. Polygamy and bigamy,
while on the decrease, were
mainly practiced among Hel-
lenistic Jews.
North African and Span-
ish Jews practiced bigamy,
while polygamy was rare in
Germany and northern
France. It seems that at the
beginning of the 12th Cen-
tury, the Jewish communities
issued a regulation which
forbade polygamy. Later, this
regulation became a "herem"
