Erna Goldmann – Als die Ben-Yehuda-Straße Deutsch sprach – Von Frankfurt nach Tel Aviv

 02.04.2012

Die Geschichte beginnt in der Zwischenkriegszeit in Frankfurt am Main, wo Ernas Familie seit Generationen lebte. Hier besuchte Erna die jüdische Schule und war mit ihren Brüdern und Freunden in einer zionistischen Jugendorganisation. Während ein Teil ihrer Familie nach der Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten Deutschland verließ, blieb Erna zunächst in Frankfurt — als jedoch das Leben für Juden immer schwieriger wird, emigriert auch Erna nach Palästina…

20-Jahr Jubiläum der Innsbrucker Synagoge

 12.04.2013

Festakt anlässlich des 20-Jahr-Jubiläums der Synagoge Innsbruck
Do, 21.03.2013 Ursulinensäle Innsbruck

Grußworte und Glückwünsche der Ehrengäste:
Oberrabbiner Paul Chaim Eisenberg, stellvertretende israelische Botschafterin Galit Ronen, Bischof Manfred Scheuer, LH Günter Platter, IKG-Präsident Oskar Deutsch, Superintendent Olivier Dantine, IKG-Präsident Marco Feingold, Präsident des Tiroler Landtages Herwig van Staa, Oberkantor Shmuel Barzilai und Alt-LH Alois Partl.

Die Innsbrucker Synagoge wurde 1909 in der Sillgasse 15 eingerichtet. Sie wurde in der “Reichskristallnacht” verwüstet und während des Zweiten Weltkrieges 1944 durch Bomben zerstört. Bis 1990 blieb das Areal unbebaut und diente als Parkplatz, an dem ein bescheidener Gedenkstein an den Ort der Alten Synagoge erinnerte.
1990 errichtete die Stadt Innsbruck hier eine Wohnanlage. In dieser wurde die Synagoge der Israelitischen Kultusgemeinde von Architekt DI Michael Prachensky wieder am ursprünglichen Ort eingerichtet.

From Minister to Torah Observant Jew – Conversion to Judaism

Ms Ahuva Gray (née Delores Gray) is a Jewish convert from Baptism. Born to a working-class family, she worked for 23 years as a flight attendant.

Ahuva Gray began to doubt Christianity when she discovered discrepancies in the New Testament. This discovery began a process of searching for the truth. Eventually she found Judaism and converted to Orthodox Judaism. As she began studying the Jewish texts, she believed that the Torah made the most sense to her. In 1996, she gave up her position as a Christian minister and become an Orthodox Jew. She has written a book about this journey entitled My Sister, the Jew. She is also a lecturer.

She currently lives in Bayit VeGan, Jerusalem.

Lyrics:

Sometimes you’re feeling down,
Things haven’t gone your way.
So you’re looking all around
To find someone who’ll save the day.
There’s one Place you can turn,
He’ll never turn you back.
When you look to Hashem
You’re always back on track.

Chorus:
‘Cause Hashem loves you,
You’re His greatest pride.
Yes, Hashem loves you,
He’s always by your side.
You can see it too,
All the good you have inside.
It’s up to you,
All you need is to decide.

One thing you’ve got to know,
Is no matter what you do
No strings are attached
To the love Hashem will show to you.
Just got to hold on tight,
Put your trust in Him,
Keep your head held high,
Let your soul just start to sing.

Chorus

You’ll walk a different walk,
With confidence in your stride,
When you think of Hashem’s love
And you know you’re always on His mind.
There’s a light you’ve got to shine,
A job no one else can do,
Hashem’s given you the tools,
Now the rest comes down to you.

Chorus

(Melody & Lyrics © 2012 Ari Goldwag)
