Jewish Community Cookbooks

March 5, 2014

Dr. Megan Elias, Associate Professor, Department of History, Queensborough Community College

Although there were a few very well-known cookbooks for Jewish families published before the Second World War in America, the post-war period saw a tremendous increase in the numbers of this genre. In particular, Jewish groups all over America published community cookbooks, usually for the purpose of fundraising. These books represent a new pride in identity which was intimately tied to the very public nature of Jewish suffering during the Holocaust. Working with the important collection of Jewish Community Cookbooks at the Dorot Division of the New York Public Library, this project seeks to put these cookbooks into the context of post-war American culture and an emerging sense of global citizenship.

Sholem Aleichem in America

Though Sholem Aleichem is widely known for his depictions of shtetl life, the famed Yiddish writer spent a number of years living and writing in America. In a new documentary titled “Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness,” director Joseph Dorman details the life of Sholem Aleichem, from his early successes to his many, painful failures. The Forward met with Dorman on the Lower East Side to discuss the difficult, but fruitful years Sholem Aleichem spent living in America.

Being Jewish in the New Germany

For more on the Berkley Center, visit:http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu

January 29, 2006 | At this event, Jeffrey Peck argued that we must now begin considering how Jews live in Germany rather than merely asking why they would choose to do so. Germany today boasts the fastest growing population of Jews in Europe. The streets of Berlin abound with signs of a revival of Jewish culture, ranging from bagel shops to the sight of worshipers leaving synagogue on Saturday. This revival is spurred by the new energy infused by Jewish immigration from Russia and changes in immigration and naturalization laws in general. This event was cosponsored by Georgetown University’s Program for Jewish Civilization.

Jeffrey Peck is a professor of Comparative Literature, dean of the Weissman School, and vice provost for global strategies at Baruch College, as well as a Senior Fellow at the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies. He previously was a professor in the Communication, Culture and Technology Program at Georgetown University; he has also held positions at Humboldt University in Berlin, the Canadian Centre for German and European Studies, and the University of Washington. His research focuses on questions of national and minority identities, particularly German-Jewish life since unification and contemporary responses to the Holocaust in a transatlantic context. His most recent books include Being Jewish in the New Germany (2006) and Multiculturalism in Transit: A German-American Exchange (1998, edited with Klaus Milich). Peck received a Fulbright Scholar grant during the 2006-2007 academic year. He received his M.A. from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.

FOR FRIDAY NIGHT: The Concept of Freedom (Behar)

Iyar 8, 5774 · May 8, 2014
The Concept of Freedom

Everyone wants freedom. It is a basic human need. To some extent, even animals seek freedom and show signs of unhappiness if they do not have it.

However, the question of what freedom consists of has not been clearly answered. Many people spend their lives chasing something they call freedom. But at some point they may well turn round and say they have been deceived.

Our Parshah gives us a insight into the nature of our freedom. Perhaps it challenges some of our assumptions.

We all know that a central theme in Judaism is the fact that we escaped from the slavery of Egypt –and reached “freedom.” But in this week’s Parshah G-d says about us: “The Jewish people are My servants. They are My servants because I brought them out of the land of Egypt…” (Leviticus 25:55).

Are we free, or are we servants? The Hebrew text could even be translated to read not “servants” but “slaves.” Is this our destiny? To be slaves?

From the point of view of the Torah, our greatest freedom is the fact that we are servants or even “slaves” of G-d. G-d is eternal, boundless: totally beyond limitations. G-d is infinite freedom. The closer our connection and bond with G-d, the closer we are to true freedom. It may sound paradoxical, but if we can become total “slaves” to G-d, utterly submitting ourselves to His will in every detail of our lives — then we will be totally and utterly free.

This point is in fact made in the Torah itself. The reason why it states that we are servants (or “slaves”) of G-d is in order to explain that we may not be permanent slaves to any human being. Indeed, there is a positive commandment to redeem any Jew who might be in a position of abject servitude or slavery. This is because, by his or her very nature, the Jew is bonded as a servant to G-d. In relation to all humanity and all existence the path of the Jew is one of unlimited freedom.

“Who Has Not Made Me a Slave”

In 1941, 30,000 Jews were herded by the Nazis into the Kovno ghetto in Lithuania. There they were treated like slaves, and worse. They were beaten, tortured, murdered. Yet at the same time, some aspects of life went on. In the synagogues there were morning prayers.

One morning, the man leading the prayers came to the blessing, “Blessed are You, G-d…. Who has not made me a slave.” He cried out in anguish: “How can I say this prayer? We are slaves!” His words gripped the hearts of the other worshippers. When we are literally slaves to the Germans, how indeed can we thank G-d for not making us slaves?

The question was addressed to a rabbi in the ghetto, and his answer has been preserved. We should say the prayer, because spiritually the Jew is always, free. Our physical bodies may be enslaved, but not our souls. Nothing can enslave the soul, the essence of the Jew.1

CHASSIDIC DIMENSION: Sinai, Mount Sinai, and “Behar” (Behar)

Chassidic Dimension – Volume 4: Behar
Iyar 8, 5774 · May 8, 2014


Sinai, Mount Sinai, and “Behar”

The Torah portion of Behar begins with the statement:1 “G-d spoke to Moshe at Mount Sinai….” The Hebrew word for “on the mount” is behar, giving rise to the accepted title of this portion. Why was the title “Behar” chosen, without even stating that the mountain was Sinai?

The words “mount” and “Sinai” have opposite connotations. A mountain implies loftiness and height. In a spiritual sense, this means that at times a Jew is to act in a bold, forceful and expansive manner — “His heart was expansive in the ways of the L-rd.”2

The word Sinai , on the other hand — without speaking of a mountain — is rooted in the Hebrew word s’neh,3 or thorn-bush, and thus denotes humility and self-nullification.

In the context of a Jew’s spiritual service, there are three levels: a) the level of Sinai — humility and self-nullification; b) the level of Mount Sinai — a combination of expansiveness and humility; and c) behar — the level of expansiveness. It is this final level that a person is to aspire to, and for which the Torah portion is named.

This will be better understood by considering a person who acts as another’s agent, emissary and messenger, and contrasting this with a wholly devoted servant.

The Gemara states4 that “One’s emissary is like the person himself.” Our Rabbis explain5 that there are three ways in which one can act as another’s agent:

a) The person empowers and authorizes his agent to act in his stead. In this instance, the action itself is accorded to the agent.

b) Even the action is seen as being done by the person himself, albeit through the vehicle of an emissary;

c) Not only are the actions considered to have been done by the person himself, but the emissary and agent become one at the time the mission is fulfilled.

Still, even with regard to the highest form of emissary, the agent still exists as an entity unto himself. This is why the phrase “One’s emissary is like the person himself” applies only to those matters that directly relate to the agent’s fulfillment of his mission.6

This is not so with regard to one’s servant. A servant is not an entity unto himself; his whole being is that of his master. It is for this reason that “whatever is acquired by the servant is acquired by his master.”7

All the above also applies to the levels of Sinai, Mount Sinai, and behar:

At the very outset of man’s spiritual service, when a person exists as an entity unto himself, he must act in complete humility and self-nullification — Sinai. At this stage, broadness and expansiveness have no place, for it would be emanating from his own ego, rather than from G-dliness and holiness.

This level of Sinai is similar to the first kind of emissary; the messenger is an entity unto himself; he merely negates himself and acts on behalf of the person who sent him.

A higher level of service is that of “Mount Sinai.” At this stage, a person may already feel some of the height and expansiveness of a “mountain.” This is because at this stage of his spiritual development, the person has so negated himself that the expansiveness is not an outgrowth of his own ego, but an expression of holiness.

Nevertheless, here too a person must possess the self-nullification of Sinai, for nullification has yet to wholly permeate him.

This is similar to the higher forms of emissary, wherein the agent gives over his power of action, or indeed his very being, to the one who sent him. Nevertheless, in this stage as well, there is still a difference between the emissary and the person who sent him.

The loftiest manner of service is that of behar — the person is so entirely negated to G-dliness that it is not even necessary to remind him of “Sinai” — there exists nothing for him other than G-d, just as the entire being of a servant is that of his master.

“Rabbi Akivah would say… Beloved is man, for he was created in the Image (of G-d); it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the Image, as it is stated: ‘For in the image of G-d He made man.’ Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: ‘You are children of the L-rd your G-d.’ Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: ‘I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it.’ ” (Ethics of the Fathers, 3:14)

                         *     *     *     *

He was one of the greatest sages the Jewish people had ever known. But, as a descendant of converts to Judaism, he could not even claim Jewish ancestry. And although he grew up as a Jew, for the first four decades of his life he was completely ignorant of Torah. An illiterate shepherd until the age of 40, he eventually became one of the most authoritative figures in the history of the study and transmission of Torah.

So Rabbi Akivah was able to relate, firsthand, to the three dimensions of our identity which he enumerates in the above-quoted Mishnah: our humanity, our Jewishness, and the specialty achieved through the study of Torah. Or–as expressed in terms of our relationship with G-d–our reflection of, connection to, and union with the Almighty.

Reflection and Connection

On the most basic level, man is the expression of the Divine. His discriminating intelligence, his empowerment to will and choose freely, are wholly G-dly qualities – qualities that the Almighty imparted to the crown and apex of His creation, making humanity the mortal mirror of His omnipotence.

Our identity as Jews represents a deeper aspect of our relationship with G-d, one that the Almighty compares to the intimate and quintessential bond between father and son. Of all the peoples of the world, G-d chose the nation of Israel to be the purveyors of His immanence in our world. To this end He commanded us the mitzvos, providing us with many and diverse avenues – as diverse as life itself – for us to make our lives an abode for His presence.

The word mitzvah means both “commandment” and “connection.” In commanding us to perform a certain deed, G-d creates an opportunity for us to form a connection with Him. He is willing Himself to want something from us, although He certainly does not want for anything in the “lack” sense of the word. He does this so that we may be able to relate to Him by fulfilling His will.

In other words, while our identity as beings created in His image has more to do with what we are than with what we do, our identity as Jews means that we have been imbued with the potential to actively create a connection with Him – by living our lives as instruments of His will.

Clothing and Nourishment

But a person’s performance of mitzvos can be a wholly “external” act – something in which he is involved only on the behavioral level, to little or no effect on his character and personality. This is not to say that merely going through the motions of a mitzvah’s performance is of no significance. These “motions” are acts, words or thoughts whose execution the Almighty chose to define as the implementation of His will. But regardless of the magnitude of what a person’s deed is accomplishing, he himself may remain unmoved and unchanged.

Torah, however, introduces a new dimension to our ability to connect to the Divine. Like the mitzvos, Torah is a channel opened by the Almighty to enable us, confined as we are to our finite and material existence, to form a connection with Him. The difference is in the medium He chose: with the mitzvos, He made that certain (mostly physical) actions should embody His “will”; with Torah, He communicated His “wisdom” in terms digestible to the human mind.

In other words, through the performance of mitzvos our daily lives become an exercise in the performance of the Divine “will,” while through the study of Torah our minds become saturated with G-d’s “wisdom.”

This is one of the reasons why the Torah is often described as “food” for the soul and the mitzvos as the soul’s “garments.” The hand that dons tefillin or dispenses charity, the heart and lips that pray, are immersed in an activity that is an extension of the Divine – an activity in which the Almighty chose to invest His will. But, in a sense, this is a one-way relationship: the limbs and faculties involved in the mitzvah’s performance are fully immersed in the act, but the act may not penetrate their being. They are doing the mitzvah, but the mitzvah may not be doing anything to them – at least not anything internal and permanent. They are effecting a connection with the Almighty, but a connection involving only their conduct and behavior, not their inner makeup and character. This is comparable to the relationship between a garment and its wearer: the wearer is encased in the garment, yet the garment remains something that is outside and distinct of the wearer.

Torah, however, is food for the soul. Food that is absorbed by its consumer to become the very substance of his being. The thinking mind is not only absorbed by an idea, but also absorbs it, making for “a wonderful union, like which there is none other, and which has no parallel anywhere in the material world – they (the mind and the idea) attain a complete oneness and unity, from every side and angle.”

And when the idea is a Torah idea, the human mind attains this “complete oneness and unity, from every side and angle” with the Divine essence which G-d communicated as His “wisdom”: on the one hand, the mind immerses itself in G-d’s Torah (a quality which the act of Torah study shares with all other mitzvos); on the other hand, it also digests and internalizes the idea, making it part of its outlook and identity.

In summation:

A. The human soul, simply by being what it is, mirrors and expresses its Divine source.

B. A more potent relationship is achieved through the mitzvos, with which the Jew actively creates a connection with the Almighty.

C. Through the study of Torah the Jew effects not only a connection with his G-d, but also a union in the most absolute sense of the word.
History, Biography and A Day in the Life of a Jew

The story of Rabbi Akivah’s origins and life is also the story of the Jewish nation. The people of Israel are also descendants of “converts” to Judaism: while G-d impressed His image on the very first man He created, it was more than two thousand years before He began the process of choosing Israel as His nation. And in its younger years, Israel, too, had yet to taste the full extent of the union with G-d wrought by Torah. While yet in Egypt, they were already referred to by the Almighty as “My firstborn son, Israel” and commanded to do certain mitzvos; but it was only on the 6th of Sivan of the year 2448 from Creation (1313 B.C.E.), as the entire people of Israel stood gathered at the foot of Mount Sinai, that the Almighty gave us His Torah and opened an new and unprecedented dimension of opportunity for relationship with Him.

In a certain sense, we each experience these three phases of growth in the course of our lifetimes and, in microcosmic form, every day of our lives. From the moment of birth, we are full-fledged human beings, reflecting and expressing the Divine image in which we were created. But the Jewish dimension to our being is not fully realized until the age of 12 (a girl) or 13 (a boy), when we assume the obligation to observe the mitzvos and fulfill her/his role as a one of G-d’s chosen people. And although the we are taught words of Torah from the time we begin to speak, it is only after many years of devoted study, years in which we attain the knowledge and maturity of mind necessary to even begin to truly comprehend Torah, that we come to enjoy the special union with G-d that only the in-depth study of Torah can bring.

On the daily level, we regain full possession of our distinctly human faculties immediately upon waking. But our relationship with the Almighty is still a wholly passive one – simply by being what we are, we mirror the Divine attributes and qualities which He invested in us. Then, with our acknowledgment of G-d in the words of Modeh Ani and our service of G-d through prayer, we begin the actualization of our Jewish selves and our “filial” relationship with our Heavenly Father. Finally, we move “from the hall of prayer to the hall of study,” where the mind of the Jew and the “mind” of G-d fuse to one.

Introductory reading to Ethics of the Fathers:

All Israel has a share in the World to Come, as is stated: “And your people are all righteous; they shall inherit the land forever. They are the shoot of My planting, the work of My hands, in which I take pride.” (Sanhedrin, 11:1)

Chapter Three

1. Rabbi Akavia the son of Mahalalel would say: Reflect upon three things and you will not come to the hands of transgression. Know from where you came, where you are going, and before whom you are destined to give a judgment and accounting. From where you came–from a putrid drop; where you are going–to a place of dust, maggots and worms; and before whom you are destined to give a judgment and accounting–before the supreme king of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He.

2. Rabbi Chanina, deputy to the kohanim, would say: Pray for the integrity of the sovereignty; for were it not for the fear of its authority, a man would swallow his neighbor alive. Rabbi Chanina son of Tradyon would say: Two who sit and no words of Torah pass between them, this is a session of scorners, as is stated, “And in a session of scorners he did not sit.” But two who sit and exchange words of Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated, “Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard; and it was inscribed before Him in a book of remembrance for those who fear G-d and give thought to His name.” From this, I know only concerning two individuals; how do I know that even a single individual who sits and occupies himself with the Torah, G-d designates reward for him? From the verse, “He sits alone in meditative stillness; indeed, he receives [reward] for it.”

3. Rabbi Shimon would say: Three who eat at one table and do not speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten from the slaughter of the dead, as is stated, “Indeed, all tables are filled with vomit and filth, devoid of the Omnipresent.” But three who eat at one table and speak words of Torah, it is as if they have eaten at G-d’s table, as is stated, “And he said to me: `This is the table that is before G-d.’ ”

4. Rabbi Chanina the son of Chachina’i would say: One who stays awake at night, or travels alone on the road, and turns his heart to idleness, has forfeited his life.

5. Rabbi Nechunia the son of Hakanah would say: One who accepts upon himself the yoke of Torah is exempted from the yoke of government duties and the yoke of worldly cares ; but one who casts off the yoke of Torah is saddled with the yoke of government duties and the yoke of worldly cares.

6. Rabbi Chalafta the son of Dosa of the village of Chanania would say: Ten who sit together and occupy themselves with Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated: “The Almighty stands in the community of G-d.” And from where do we know that such is also the case with five? From the verse, “He established his band on earth.” And three? From the verse, “He renders judgment in the midst of judges.” And two? From the verse, “Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard.” And from where do we know that such is the case even with a single individual? From the verse, “Every place where I have My name mentioned, I shall come to you and bless you.”

7. Rabbi Elazar of Bartosa would say: Give Him what is His, for you, and whatever is yours, are His. As David says: “For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we have given to You.” Rabbi Yaakov would say: One who walks along a road and studies, and interrupts his studying to say, “How beautiful is this tree!,” “How beautiful is this ploughed field!”—the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life.

8. Rabbi Dusta’i the son of Rabbi Yannai would say in the name of Rabbi Meir: Anyone who forgets even a single word of this learning, the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. As is stated, “Just be careful, and verily guard your soul, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen.” One might think that this applies also to one who [has forgotten because] his studies proved too difficult for him; but the verse goes on to tell us “and lest they be removed from your heart, throughout the days of your life.” Hence, one does not forfeit his life unless he deliberately removes them from his heart.

9. Rabbi Chanina the son of Dosa would say: One whose fear of sin takes precedence to his wisdom, his wisdom endures. But one whose wisdom takes precedence to his fear of sin, his wisdom does not endure.

10. He would also say: One whose deeds exceed his wisdom, his wisdom endures. But one whose wisdom exceeds his deeds, his wisdom does not endure. He would also say: One who is pleasing to his fellow men, is pleasing to G-d. But one who is not pleasing to his fellow men, is not pleasing to G-d. Rabbi Dosa the son of Hurkinas would say: Morning sleep, noontime wine, children’s talk and sitting at the meeting places of the ignoramus, drive a person from the world.

11. Rabbi Elazar of Modi’in would say: One who profanes the kodoshim, degrades the Festivals, humiliates his friend in public, abrogates the covenant of our father Abraham, or who interprets the Torah contrary to its true intent—although he may possess Torah knowledge and good deeds, he has no share in the World to Come.

12. Rabbi Ishmael would say: Be yielding to a leader, affable to the black-haired, and receive every man with joy.

13. Rabbi Akivah would say: Jesting and frivolity accustom a person to promiscuity. Tradition is a safety fence to Torah, tithing a safety fence to wealth, vows a safety fence for abstinence; a safety fence for wisdom is silence.

14. He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, “For in the image of G-d, He made man.” Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: “You are children of the L-rd your G-d.” Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: “I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it.”

15. All is foreseen, and freedom of choice is granted. The world is judged with goodness, but in accordance with the amount of man’s positive deeds.

16. He would also say: Everything is placed in pledge, and a net is spread over all the living. The store is open, the storekeeper extends credit, the account-book lies open, the hand writes, and all who wish to borrow may come and borrow. The collection-officers make their rounds every day and exact payment from man, with his knowledge and without his knowledge. Their case is well founded, the judgment is a judgment of truth, and ultimately, all is prepared for the feast.

17. Rabbi Eliezer the son of Azariah would say: If there is no Torah, there is no common decency; if there is no common decency, there is no Torah. If there is no wisdom, there is no fear of G-d; if there is no fear of G-d, there is no wisdom. If there is no applied knowledge, there is no analytical knowledge; if there is no analytical knowledge, there is no applied knowledge. If there is no flour, there is no Torah; if there is no Torah, there is no flour.

He would also say: One whose wisdom is greater than his deeds, what is he comparable to? To a tree with many branches and few roots; comes a storm and uproots it, and turns it on its face. As is stated, “He shall be as a lone tree in a wasteland, and shall not see when good comes; he shall dwell parched in the desert, a salt land, uninhabited.” But one whose deeds are greater than his wisdom, to what is he compared? To a tree with many roots and few branches, whom all the storms in the world cannot budge from its place. As is stated: “He shall be as a tree planted upon water, who spreads his roots by the river; who fears not when comes heat, whose leaf is ever lush; who worries not in a year of drought, and ceases not to yield fruit.”

18. Rabbi Eliezer [the son of] Chisma would say: the laws of kinin and the laws of menstrual periods—these, these are the meat of Halacha. The calculations of solar seasons and gematria are the condiments of wisdom.

Studied at the conclusion of each lesson of the Ethics:

Rabbi Chananiah the son of Akashiah would say: G-d desired to merit the people of Israel; therefore, He gave them Torah and Mitzvot in abundance. As is stated, “G-d desired, for sake of his righteousness, that Torah be magnified and made glorious.” (Makot, 3:16)

COMMENT: Because It Is There

Because It Is There
Iyar 6, 5774 · May 6, 2014


According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, the sport of mountain-climbing was born in 1760, when a young Genevan scientist, Horace-Bénédict de Saussure, offered prize money for the first person or persons to reach the summit of Mount Blanc, Europe’s tallest peak at 15,777 feet.

I suspect that it’s been going on for much longer than that. Something tells me that for as long as there have been humans and mountains, humans have been climbing mountains. Not just for some “useful” purpose, but also for sport, for the challenge it poses, for no other reason—as one famous mountaineer put it—than “because it is there.” Or rather, because we arehere, down below, and we want to be someplace higher than here.

Consider the case of Moses. Granted, Mount Sinai was no Everest. Remember, however, that Moses was 80 years old at the time. Remember, also, that he was doing it on behalf of 600,000 people. (600,000 Jews, that is, which means that he had to contend with 600,000 opinions on which route to take, what equipment to use, etc.; indeed, Moses had to build a fence around the mountain to hold them back from having a go at it themselves.)

Now, you might say that Moses’ climb wasn’t just for the challenge, but for a specific purpose: to receive the Torah. Yet G‑d was coming down from the heavens—an infinite number of light-years away. He certainly could have descended another few thousand feet, instead of making an octogenarian sage climb a mountainside. As, indeed, He could have programmed the Torah right into our brains, together with all the other stuff we’re born knowing, instead of chiseling it into two stone tablets for us to study and decipher.

But G‑d was telling us: Yes, you are so far down below, and I am so high up, that you’ll never get here on your own. The only way that there can be anything eternal, infinite or true in your lives is if I come down to you. But if I came all the way down, whatever I might give you will be meaningless to you—as meaningless to you as your own existence, to which you are oblivious because you were born into it and did not struggle to achieve it.

So, says G‑d, I am going to make these mountains. Mountains that will try your skills, that will consume every iota of your energy and determination. Mountains so high that they will require a superhuman effort on your part to attain their peaks.

And when you reach the summit, I’ll be there waiting for you.

VOICES: Life’s Little Reversals

Life’s Little Reversals
Iyar 6, 5774 · May 6, 2014


I noticed first the striking red shawl wrapping her, identical to the one my husband had presented me from his trip to Russia. Almost simultaneously we exited our respective cabs; immediately my eyes were drawn to the shawl and my ears were drawn to the sound. Her voice was louder than the shawl, and it took a moment before I realized she was berating not me, but the man emerging from the cab after her: kak tzebye nye stidna? (Loosely: “aren’t you ashamed of yourself?” or “have you no shame?”) And because we had the same destination, the entire walk from the street to the Kotel (Western Wall) was to the sound of their arguing—Russian to Hebrew and back again. Speaking neither, and understanding very little of both, I could divine only that she cared about her son’s welfare and that she didn’t want to be here.

I turned right, to the ramp leading down to that holiest of places; they turned left . . .

It takes great effort to exit the emotional universe of the Western Wall, taking some steps backward and then at some point turning and walking forward, upward . . . how often we need to do that little reversal in our life. And now I see many clusters of soldiers, many individual soldiers, hurrying towards the north side of the plaza. Without realizing it was happening, I’m now in a crush of soldiers and, apparently, their families. And then the sound of trumpets and drums fills the entire space with the Israeli national anthem. Some ceremony must be taking place.

And then, there they were again—she of the red Russian shawl still berating the man dwarfing her. Still gesticulating, still voices raised. The plaza is filled with noise—usually a place so still, now there are the drums and trumpets, lots of people talking very loudly, a celebratory vibe in the air . . . and suddenly it goes still.

I’m looking now, not at swirls of soldiers, but at a neat, orderly block of perhaps a hundred boys in uniform. Some with kippot; I notice tzitzit among the crowd. All stand quietly and respectfully. Mindful of the time, however, I hurry up the many stairs to the Jewish Quarter, where I’m to meet a friend, but halfway up I’m compelled to stop and watch them. Sounds waft up . . . speeches . . . and it’s clear that this is the swearing-in ceremony concluding basic training for these boys. I was across the ocean when my own son received his beret and Bible; I can’t bring myself to leave now.

And as my eyes mist over with tears, I’m assaulted again by her loud voice. Here, on this landing above the Kotel’s plaza, I’ve not escaped them, and they are ascending the stairs towards me. Stopping beside me, seeing what I’m seeing, she is quiet. There they stand, and they are quiet. And then, as only happens in Israel, she turns to me and, as if we’d been childhood friends, begins to pour out her heart.

It’s her son down there.

Against her express wishes, he’d enlisted six months ago.

Against her express wishes, he enlisted. She feels betrayed. She is deeply frightened.

And here her husband stands proudly watching—how can he be so callous? And I hear her story; she’s crying freely and wiping her tears with the edge of her shawl. For a week, day and night, I’d been in the embrace of its identical twin as it shielded and warmed me. Her hand holds its edge, and she tells me of her father killed in action while defending his country, of her mother left a young widow. She describes the terror of her siblings as their sons went into battle, and her resolute stance that her son would do anything to avoid his army service. And then, his betrayal! And, more than that, her husband’s complicity—he’d signed the papers! And now he drags her here, to this ceremony?!

She is angry. She feels betrayed. She is deeply frightened. And she’s adamant that she will not stay for the ceremony; he tricked her into coming, and she has nothing to say to her son! All of this in broken English, with Russian and Hebrew interspersed.

Her husband had gone off, and now he returns with two hot cups of tea and hands me one. “To warm your insides,” he tells me. His English, strongly accented, is impeccable as only one who learned it as a second language can speak. Russian-educated, he is a teacher of English literature in an Israeli high school. His wife refuses the cup, and hugs herself as she turns her back on the scene below. He stands next to me, leaning forward the better to see.

The fringes of the red shawl brush my shoulder, and the connection is there. And now I’m speaking to her as if we’d known each other forever. I find my voice pleading. I tell her that I would do anything to have been able to be here to see my son take his place as his name was called.

I tell her also of our own struggle, my husband’s discouragement of our own son’s desire to join the IDF. Nevertheless, my husband told my son the decision was his own. Discouraging him, but allowing him that freedom. On the very first day of basic training he called our son, showering upon him all the blessings a father can confer. Speaking of his pride in him. Encouraging him, blessing him, reminding him that this role he now assumed was a holy one.

And I’m crying as I tell her all of this. “Go down,” I tell her, “go back down to the plaza and be there to hug him and kiss him with great pride and joy.

“I know your fear,” I say, “but he needs your support and your confidence. And your pride in him. Don’t deprive him of that.”

I don’t know if she understands everything I say, but I believe that her heart must sense the words from my heart even if she doesn’t know them. But her husband understands. And now I see him move to her side and say, in a strong voice now, “Come.”

She’s quiet. Doesn’t move. Again he says, “Come,” and gives her a gentle tug. And suddenly she turns and embraces me tightly. The red Russian shawl envelopes me in her embrace . . . and they are gone. I watch them walk down the stairs; I don’t wait to see them greet her son.

Memories – Performed by Rivie, Eli, & Avromi Schwebel

November 9, 2012

Seventy four years ago today, a series of pogroms began across Germany. At least 91 Jews were murdered and 267 Shuls were burned or destroyed. Many Yeshivos, Jewish cemeteries and Jewish owned businesses were damaged and desecrated. Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass, marked an intensification of Nazi anti-Jewish policy that would culminate in the Holocaust—the systematic, state-sponsored murder of Jews.

Today we remember the memories of our six million.

As aulas terminam em torno de 20:45.

Já as aulas de Daf Hayomi- Guemará Berachot – (gravadas), são realizadas por Michel Klein, de segunda a sexta, após shacharit,às 8:15 na Sinagoga Kehilat Moriah (Rua Pompeu Loureiro,48 – Copacabana).

Spanish kosher food market set to grow as rising number of Jewish visitors drives demand

Spain is becoming an increasingly popular destination for Jewish tourists, some wanting to rediscover their historic Sephardic roots, others simply wanting to enjoy the sun, and the country’s gastronome culture, which plays a huge role in the Spanish experience… so what exactly is the cuisine on offer here for Jewish visitors?

Tzimmes – Jewish carrot dish

Mr. Hebrew makes Tzimmes. The expression “Dont make tzimmes out of it” (a big deal) isn’t really true when you use Neal’s preparation method.

Wikipedia definition: Tzimmes or tsimmes (Yiddish, Hebrew: צימעס) is a traditional Jewish dish in which the principal ingredient is diced or sliced carrots, sometimes combined with dried fruits like prunes or raisins, or chunks of meat (usually brisket or flanken). The dish is cooked slowly over low heat and flavored with honey and sometimes cinnamon. The variations are endless. The non-meat version tends to be sweeter, along the lines of candied yams.

Tzimmes is often part of the Rosh Hashanah meal, when it is traditional to eat sweet and honey-flavored dishes.

The name may come from the German words zum (for) and essen (eating). Some say the word is a corruption of the word ‘simmer.’ “To make a big tzimmes over something” means to make a big fuss.

Bubby Chanele makes Gefilte Fish in Yiddish


Bubby Chanele Gonshor, of Montreal, Canada, visits her granddaughter in Berkeley, California, and teachers her how to make Geflite Fish in Yiddish.

A Jewish mother, how bitter life is when she is not there.
you must thank God that she is still with you.
How sad to be when she passes away too soon.
She would run through fire and water for the sake of her child.
It is the worst of sins not holding her precious.
Happy and rich is the man who has got this beautiful gift of God,
to have still an old Jewish mother
Mother Mother of mine

Regine Zylberberg.- French chanteuse. Born on December 26, 1929 in Belgium to Polish-Jewish parents.

ANECDOTE: ” My Yiddishe Momme”

“My Yiddishe Momme” was originally written in 1925 by Jack Yellen as a
personal tribute to his mother who
recently had died. A few years later he asked Lew Pollack to work on the melody with him, and eventually the song credits read JACK YELLEN (words)

“On an impulse” he told David Ewen “I
called up Sophie Tucker at the Claridge Hotel in New York. She bawled me out for
spoiling her sleeping pill, but she
listened, and when I finished singing ,
she was weeping. Between gulps, she
asked me to send her a copy. She wrote
me that her agents and friends suggested
the title be changed to “Jewish” or
“Hebrew mother”, being afraid of the
word “Yiddish”. I told her that if she
sang it, it would be “Yiddish Momme” or
nothing at all, and what is more; I
insisted that she should sing the chorus
in yiddish, the way I had written it.

THE 1928 disk that sold a million copies
was two-sided, with the english version
on one side and the Yiddish on the other. The accompaniment was by Ted Shapiro, who worked with Sophie for forty-six years, up to her death, and wrote much special material for her.
Sophie introduced the song initially at the Palace Theatre in New York in 1925 to a standing ovation.””.

Paris sous l’Occupation- June 14, 1940.
“in June 1942, all
Jews over the age of six living in the occupied zone were ordered to wear a
yellow star of David marked with the word “Juif,” meaning Jew.”.

On November 9th, 2008 jews all over the
world will mark the 70th anniversary of
Kristallnacht, 1938. Synagogues burned,
jewish owned stores destroyed, books on fire. Many jews arrested. It was what
many have described as the begining of the holocaust….

My Yiddishe Momme- sung by Regine Zylberberg was featured in the french
film Mazel Tov ou le mariage (1969)
( English title: Marry Me, Marry Me )
directed by Claude Berri.

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day 2014

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day is May 5, 2014 (beginning sundown May 4)
The Israeli Memorial Day” for Fallen Soldiers and Victim of Terror

Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli Memorial Day, is different in its character and mood from the American Memorial Day. For 24 hours (from sunset to sunset) all places of public entertainment (theaters, cinemas, nightclubs, pubs, etc.) are closed. The most noticeable feature of the day is the sound of siren that is heard throughout the country twice, during which the entire nation observes a two-minutes “standstill” of all traffic and daily activities. The first siren marks the beginning of Memorial Day at 8:00 P.M., and the second is at 11:00 A.M., before the public recitation of prayers in the military cemeteries. All radio and television stations broadcast programs portraying the lives and heroic deeds of fallen soldiers. Most of the broadcasting time is devoted to Israeli songs that convey the mood of the day.
The Silver Platter by Nathan Altermam
The Earth grows still.
The lurid sky slowly pales
Over smoking borders.
Heartsick, but still living, a people stand by
To greet the uniqueness
of the miracle.
Readied, they wait beneath the moon,
Wrapped in awesome joy, before the light.
— Then, soon,
A girl and boy step forward,
And slowly walk before the waiting nation;
In work garb and heavy-shod
They climb
In stillness.
Wearing yet the dress of battle, the grime
Of aching day and fire-filled night
Unwashed, weary unto death, not knowing rest,
But wearing youth like dewdrops in their hair.
— Silently the two approach
And stand.
Are they of the quick or of the dead?
Through wondering tears, the people stare.
“Who are you, the silent two?”
And they reply: “We are the silver platter
Upon which the Jewish State was served to you.”
And speaking, fall in shadow at the nation’s feet.
Let the rest in Israel’s chronicles be told.
