 The Schulchan aruch, "the prepared table," had as its author the Rabbi Josef Karo, born in 1488. This "revision of Jewish religious law," which appeared for the first time in Venice in the years 1564/65 without papal examination, contained four sections with over 1700 single paragraphs, which each could again be broken up into numerous -- up to 81 -- subsections! As a true son of the Talmud, the Schulchan aruch also adopts the ambiguous secret learning of the former. Like the Talmud itself, its offspring has the reputation of being "divine revelation," and Judaism sees in the Schulchan aruch, together with its authoritative commentaries, its religious law, which possesses canonical validity. According to the judgement of the Jewish Professor Graetz, "the Schulchan aruch -- and what belongs to it -- forms, right on down to the present day, for the German and Polish Jews, the religious norm, the official Judaism." -- Another Jewish Professor, Ellenberger, explains this elastic concept ("and what belongs to it") to us somewhat further; he writes plainly: "There are only Schulchan- aruch-Jews!"
"But every schulchan-aruch-Jew who still possesses a sense of shame, must blush when he contemplates his face in this mirror!" (Jacob Ecker: Judenspiegel [Mirror of the Jews], p. 126.

 For those who, according to Graetz, "grasp the armament and flags of the enemy in order to all the more surely strike him and all the more emphatically annihilate him," thus those like Delitzsch, Wünsche, Pieritz, Neander, Veith, and numberless others, had already performed quite a bit of work! They belonged to the 500 pastors of Jewish origin in the Evangelical pulpits who were led into the field by their mission to the Jews so frequently and glady. (See in this regard Pastor Schaeffer: Materialien zur Judenfrage [Materials for the Jewish Question], p. 90: "From the most recent church history, only Professors August Neander and Caspari might be named, or it may be pointed out that presently from the Evangelical pulpits, more than 500 Jews who have become believers in Christ proclaim the Gospel of Christ. If one surveys these facts, it can be determined at once that this objection, that the Jews cannot be be converted on the inside [i.e., in their hearts, etc.], is wrongfully raised." -- Pastor Schaeffer was Director of the Mission to the Jews!)
