The idea of Jewish Pulse #
During the second half of the 19th-century Jewish pulse had shaped the Shtetls in many different ways. For example, Jewish pulse had provided Shtetls the right way to practice their religious prayers and the way through which Shtetls had gained the knowledge to teach their children and family members about the significance of their existence, as human personalities.
Also, Jewish pulse had also shaped the Shtetls by means of their social and personal values such as getting an education as one of the significant parts of their lives and the way of functioning in family farms as well.
However, within the first half of the 20th century, Jewish pulse had also shaped the Shtetls and their way of surviving by means of trading and working on their collective businesses.
During the first half of the 20th century, Jewish pulse had completely absorbed within the blood of Shtetls as they turned their societal values as a way of their different living standards and practices of their mutual lives as well.
Jewish pulse had also shaped Shtetls by means of accepting nature as their God and considering no one else as their guardian of the earth.
Change Of Interactions Between The Jewish #
The idea of Jewish pulse had shaped the interactions between the Jewish families by means of communication. In reality, before the existence of the idea of Jewish pulse, most of the families were more likely to live apart from their neighbors and they talked less.
However, with the arrival of Jewish pulse Jewish families encouraged to talk with their neighbors, especially women who started communicating with their neighboring women about some special things.
For example, when any of the family decided to marry any of their children, then the neighbor women tried to communicate with their neighboring women about the marriage of the neighboring children and so the interaction between the men of the Jewish families started to develop.
Also, the Jewish pulse had provided Jewish families to interact with the larger societies, by means of effective communication over some particular subject matter like a business, living place, and other people of occupation as well.
Works Performed By Jewish People #
Jewish people performed different kinds of works such as:
- Working in farms
- Working in schools
- Working in nurseries
- Working in ships
- Working in society-based shops and trades
Socio-Economic Position Of Jews #
During the second half of the 19th century, the socio-economic position of Jewish people was not stable, as they were having no secure means of survival, a poor trading system within the local sphere, local transportation for businesses, and limited resources to make their land fertile and productive.
However, within the first half of the 20th century, Eastern European Jews started to make their trade with larger societies, family businesses were established, family members started to involve in practical jobs, educated people were increased and ships were used to make fair trade with other regions.
In short, within the first half of the 20th century, the socio-economic positions of the Eastern European Jews started to develop according to the modern developments of the time.
From the family of Mord Haber, we have learned that life is uncertain and anything can happen within the life, as a human personality. We also learned that life is worthless and to live for the saving of life is also worthless, as it offers nothing but pains and suffering, linked with the miserable conditions of human life.
While, on the other hand, from Goldstein, we have learned that life is full of struggle over which an individual always tries to change its future while remembering the events of the past.
One new thing that we have learned at this point is the fact that life is running and no one can change his past, but the only thing that a person can do is better his future while remaining the reality of his past as a source of encouragement.
Jews deal in a passionate manner with the overwhelming suppression of anti-Semitism, whereas teaching their children about the value of their lives and the way through which one can be a prince in his life and the way through which a man can support his family and people, in an effective manner.
They also encountered in a fair manner with anti-Semitism while holding their religious values and societal principles, as the basis for their encouragement and a source of inspiration as well.
