  Shem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shem (שֵׁם "renown; prosperity; name", Standard Hebrew Šem, Tiberian Hebrew Šēm; Greek Σημ, Sēm) was one of the sons of Noah in the Bible.
Genesis 11:10 records that Shem was 100 years old at the birth of to Arpachshad two years after the flood, making him 98 at the time of the flood; and that he lived for another 500 years after this, making his age at death 600 years.
Shem was the progenitor of the south-western nations of Asia, being the father of Elam (Persia), Ashur (Assyria), Arpachshad or Arpachaxad (according to Josephus, Chaldea), from whom descended the Hebrews and Arabs, Lud (Lydia) and Aram (Syria).

 Baal Shem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Baal Shem in Hebrew translates as "Master of the Name", and is almost always used in reference to Israel ben Eliezer, the Rabbi who founded Hasidic Judaism and was called the Baal Shem Tov.
Not many people with this title have been recorded (outside of the Baal Shem Tov, the Baal Shem of Michelstadt was one example) and none have it today.
Other Baalei Shem include Rabbi Eliyahu of Worms (the founder of the movement variously known as "Macheneh Yisrael", the "Nistarim", and the "Holy Brotherhood"), Rabbi Joel of Ropshitz (a student of Rabbi Yoel Sirkis), and Rabbi Adam Baal Shem.

 Assistant Pastor Shem Uzele
The theme of Shem's praises is best expressed by the words from one of his favorite hymns, Great is Thy Faithfulness......."Pardon from sin, and a peace that endureth." Shem's parents, citizens of the Congo and workers for The Africa Inland Mission, were on a church-planting mission in the Sudan when Shem was born.
Shem repented of his sin and accepted Jesus as his Saviour and immediately The Peace of God totally overwhelmed him.
Shem also continued his evangelism work through the Fellowship Bible Church in Nairobi as a worship leader and as an elder.

 PART THREE: THE LINEAGE OF SHEM
The descendants of Shem and Ham however, shared between them the southern and central regions of Asia Minor and Arabia, with Ham's descendants subsequently spreading onto the African continent.
This, of course, meant that a certain amount of intermingling took place between the posterities of Shem and Ham and it is consequently sometimes difficult to assess whether certain early nations were predominantly Semitic or Hamitic.
For the most part, though, these various peoples are still traceable in the ancient records, their historical reality, at least, being thus firmly demonstrated, even if their precise areas of settlement should sometimes be too vague to be accurately assessed.

 Rabbi Scheinerman's Home Page - Baal Shem Tov
The Baal Shem Tov taught his followers that God is to be worshiped with great joy -- enthusiastic singing and exuberant dancing -- and that the mystical approach to God (Kabbalah) was superior to the dry, legalistic scholarship of the Talmudic scholars of his day.
The Baal Shem Tov asked the Messiah when he would come, and the Messiah replied that he would come when the Besht's teachings were revealed to the world so that others could ascend and achieve union with the godhead.
The mystical theology of Kabbalah, as taught by the Baal Shem Tov, was accessible to all, where the scholarship of the Sages of Vilna was accessible to few.

 Shem haMephoresh
It is thus, perhaps, needless to state the importance of the Shem haMephoresh in both magickal and religious rites.
I was perplexed over exactly how the Tetragram was related to the Shem haMephoresh at all; outside of the fact that the latter is associated with the zodiac, and the zodiac itself is ruled by twelve permutations of the Tetragrammaton.
It is obvious that the Shem haMephoresh itself is divided among the Nine Choirs of Angels as recorded in classical documents, with eight Angels attributed to each Choir (thus 8 x 9 = 72).

 SHEM 2001-2002 Global Model Tropical Cyclone Forecasts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The primary motivation for the use operational models is to set a benchmark for TC performance in reanalysis, i.e., to define the quality of TCs in reanalyses and reforecasts relative to comparable models and observing systems.
The nearly 100% POD at all forecast taus in SHEM is remarkable and much better than even the late 1990's implying a substantial improvement in global NWP in what is conventionally viewed as a data poor region.
Since the main source of observations comes from satellites in SHEM, the excellent POD measures the ability of modern global NWP to assimilate satellite observations particularly estimates of over-ocean surface wind speed (e.g., SSM/I) and vectors (e.q., quicksat).

The Baal Shem Tov and the chassidic movement was a big thorn in the side of these politically correct Jews.
Now, back to the Baal Shem Tov: To say the Baal Shem Tov was a simple peasant boy who began a popular folk movement is somewhat akin to saying that American Democracy was the product of some Daniel Boone types who were fed up with high-falooten British sophisticates.
The Baal Shem Tov was a student of the Kaballa of Rabbi Yitzchaak Luria, the "Arizal" -- as were so many of his contemporary scholars.

 The Table of Nations: Ham, Shem and Japheth, Sons of Noah -- Courtesy of Return To Glory
As Shem means "dusky," or the like, and Japheth "fair," it has been supposed that Ham meant, as is not improbable, "fl." This is supported by the evidence of Hebrew and Arabic, in which the word chamam means "to be hot" and "to be fl," the latter signification being derived from the former.
When giving the names of Noah's three sons, Shem is always mentioned first (Genesis 9:18; 10:1, etc.); and though "the elder" in "Shem the brother of Japheth the elder" (Genesis 10:21 margin) is explained as referring to Shem, this is not the rendering of Onkelos.
Shem, who is called "the father of all the children of Eber," was born when Noah had attained the age of 500 years (Genesis 5:32).
