of Religion                               and Philosophy in Germany
by Heinrich Heine                       to the

'Temporal Virgin Site':  from May 13 1997
to  May 13 1998.                        1.      Joseph Semah:
temporal virgin site, 1982-3, collection the Hallisch Frankisches Museum,
Schwabisch Hall, Germany. watercolor washes, ink and pencil on paper,
(21x30)cmm.      'Yaken hazen                ' hence the Initials of the
words : hare hunting ; was derived from Judaism (the Ashkenaz, traditional
name for Germany, European Jewry) about 700 years to the counting of the
Christians, in the area ( of the present Germany ) YAIEN      /wine,
KIDUSH        /sanctification (ceremonial blessing over wine or bread),
NERR         /candle, HAVDALAH           /distinction, divide, ceremony at
the conclusion of Sabbaths and holidays, and ZMANN           /time.
(Leviticus, XI, 6, ..And the hare, because he cheweth the cud,but divideth
not the hoof; he is unclean unto you .....). The four words established in
fact the Initials as Hasen Jagen ; that is the theoretical part of Kidush (
hare hunting) (1).  (However (it is possible that), from this stage on,
Judaism embarked upon her encounter with sexuality (Hunting) in the
Christian's realm (Catholicism), although the course has been modified to
political, and therefore to theological virtue.  The Christian claim was
the display of a seductive being, and the idolatry (the other's rituals),
namely the Jewish divine service, became an expression of bloodshed (the
Initials). Any deviation from the established Christian's norm should be
perceived as a betrayal of the bond (with  hare-hunting). This is however a
difficult Jewish pornography: The Judaism of monotheism (as established
through her Initials) displayed a loyal monogamy as the password  for one
God, one religion, and somehow ( also one country) on the other hand the
hare, which does not possess ( any real territory), as well as the
religious heresy towards the Christian dominion, became associated with
perversion; the hare was transformed, from its Initials into a sound which
could have built a new world in the Christian's realm. Hence, the so-called
unethical deeds became a symbol; The biblical hero (hence, the text). The
written words were revealed as a symbol of gilgul neshamot :
spirit-transformation; Elohiem         >       ADAM the first male > Yeshu
Jesus > Elohiem   Adam > Hare > Judaism; an exhilaration designed to gaze
at Christianity and into its best concealed secrets ( the legacy of
Havdalah) ranging from sand, a simple day of the week > to the sacred, the
chair, the Shabbath. (1):The two words YAKEN HAZZEN when spoken out loudly
infront of a German speaking person may enjoy a different meaning; hence-
YAKEN HAZEN                       becomes  hare hunting;               2.
