"Jews not Judaism"

+1
−1

Maybe the "Jews not Judaism" questions should also have their own category, or a separate tag structure (including date ranges and locations)

And a clear division between biography ("Where did the Baal Shem Tov get smicha?" and Jewish History ("What language did 14th century French Jews speak?")

I don't see these types of questions as being that different from the others. They're not Halacha or Gemara, but there is still plenty of overlap. There are questions about the Rambam about his Seforim and Halacha and Hashkafa but also about his life - and all those things are connected. Jewish history is also very much the history of Jewish law, as it evolved over millennia of diaspora and adapted to new lands (and new persecutions). The language of French Jews is not just a curiosity - it is the לעז of Rashi.

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
