Tetragrammaton

Atheists To Post Billboard With Tetragrammaton In Williamsburg

03/05/2012

 

An atheist organization says it will unveil a Hebrew-language billboard calling God a “myth” near a Brooklyn Chasidic enclave.

The group American Atheists says it will unveil a billboard Monday in Chasidic-dominated South Williamsburg. The billboard writes out the name of God in Hebrew -- the Tetragrammaton that observant Jews are proscribed from saying aloud -- and then features in English and Hebrew translation the phrase “You know it’s a myth … and you have a choice.”

Most chasidic Jews speak Yiddish, not Hebrew.
