Koreans all learn Talmud
An English-speaking young Korean woman explained what the book in his hand was. “The Talmudeh. It’s famous”, she said. The man asked her, what is in this book? “It’s children’s stories”.
He asked her, who reads this book? “Parents buy it for their children, so that they can have the knowledge of the Yutayne”, she answered. He asked her to translate the words on the cover. She told him it said, “Talmudeh, the Wisdom of the Yutayne”. “Who are the Yutayne?”, the man asked.
She did not know. She had to google, and it was clearly not a translation issue. The Wisdom of the Yutayne may as well have been the Wisdom of the undersea dwellers of Atlantis. Yutayne is the Korean for Yehudim. You know, Jews.
The Koreans believe that the study of Talmud is what makes the Jews smart and as announced in the past week by the Korean ambassador in Israel, they really love the lessons and there are probably more (translated) Talmudic stories in South Korean homes than in Israel!
