    Frankly, I guess I don’t care if the blogger is male or goy.

    March 3, 2009 at 1:42 amWe brought up this gender issue some time ago in a post called ‘Boys’ Club’.

    What if one if Hispanic? That’s neither Anglo-American nor South-American.

    March 3, 2009 at 3:34 pmAny Americans using English in their blogs got put in the Anglo-American category – even though we noted the odd Hispanic and Jewish biblioblogger among them. Ok, we admit, maybe it wasn’t 100% accurate – but it’s probably indicative.

    March 4, 2009 at 9:38 pmExcept country of origin does not indicate goyischness. One is a goy if they are a Gentile, a non-Jew. Last time I checked there were many, many Jews living in the Anglo-American piece of the pie.

    Now, it is true of course, that there are very few Jewish scholars blogging and very few blogs dealing with rabbinica and Jewish material. I have noted this before and while there are a few (and a few more have come to my attention lately, I am sure there are more) I would love to see their number increase.

    This doesn’t really say that bibliobloggers are overwhelmingly goy (although we are) since being goyisch is about religion not geographic locale. There are plenty of Jews residing in “Anglo-America.”

    I have noted on my blog that there are very few blogs dealing with rabbinica and not many more biblioblogs by Jewish colleagues. Has anyone come across more?

    Pointing out technicalities like that is soooooo Goy.

  1. Dear BB 50 “WASP…Goy…” Then that must make you a WOG…LOL. Wog, wasp’s & non-Jews aside is this still an active blog? I hope so.
    I’ve been racking my brains about Shof’tim/Judges chapter 1: 14 in the NEB (1972) for my dissertation. I ‘m going to check out the article on it.
