South Florida Jewish Community Holds Prayer Service For Slain Rabbis

A South Florida Jewish community mourned the loss of the four rabbis killed at a Jerusalem synagogue through prayers and a memorial service held at Temple Beth Israel in Miami Beach, Wednesday morning.

A memorial was also held Tuesday evening, with prayers coinciding with other prayers from temples all around the world.

Rabbi Donald Bixon said he and other rabbis used Wednesday’s memorial service to pray for peace. “We use psalms as a source of comfort,” said Bixon. “They were written by King David, and they are prayers that talk about comfort, comfort for the dead, comfort for us and comfort how to move on and prayers for peace in Israel.”

Dany Mocton, a former student from Talmudic University in Miami Beach, lost his beloved teacher, Rabbi Moshe Twersky, who trained hundreds of rabbis in Jerusalem. “We can’t really understand why God does what he does,” said Dany Mocton who spent a year learning at Twersky’s school in Jerusalem, “but we do have to know that it’s from God. God is the one who chose him to go this way. We can never in a million years understand why. Perhaps it’s a challenge to you, perhaps God is telling you your teacher went in this way.”

“You have to watch it to believe it,” added Mocton, “every single second, he’s eating, he’s sleeping, he’s learning, he’s praying, he’s moving, every moment was, ‘How can I possibly make a bigger and a better relationship to my God?'”

Mocton said Twersky was one of the kindest people he had ever met in his life. “I want my child to respect people like my Rabbi respected people. No matter who they are, what backgrounds they came from, no matter what the age was, he respected them incredibly.”

The former student said when he heard the news 59-year-old Twersky was murdered, it tore his heart. “More than an angel, actually. This person has the ability to get closer and closer to God. Angels don’t.”

The now 22-year-old student is married and expecting his first child in six weeks. Mocton has continued his Judaic studies in Miami Beach and will always remember his Rabbi. “It’s not his way to go … his every minute, I mean every single minute and second was devoted to God. You know, that’s the way he went. He was praying to God.”

Rabbi Twersky had an influence on hundreds of students through out the years. Mocton said, he will always remember the year he spent him. He spent every day with him and was amazed at how every single moment was spent serving God.

Hundreds attended a memorial for Twersky in Boston, as he was the son of Rabbi Isadore Twersky, who founded Harvard University’s Center for Jewish Studies. “The Jewish tradition is no royalty,” said a friend of Twersky’s, “but if one can come close, he and his family have been revered for generations.”

Twersky lost his life alongside Aryeh Kupinsky, 43, Kalman Levine, 55, and Abraham Goldberg, 68. Menachem Nissel knew all the victims from Tuesday’s attack but was especially close to Levine. “He was literally a Kansas hick when I first met him 30 years ago,” he said. “He was fresh out of Kansas.”

Nissel said the victims were not the type of men to be hated by others. “It was not possible for any of the four of them to have somebody that didn’t like them,” he said. “When you think about it, the morning prayers are called the prayers of Abraham, and they’re praying to the God of Abraham, which we all have in common, about making the world into a better place, and that’s when the terrorists chose to come in and to pull them down.”

Daughter Remembers Father Lost in Jerusalem Attack

A South Florida woman took her daughter on the first flight to Jerusalem after hearing her father had lost his life in a synagogue attack that captured worldwide attention.

Michal Levine lives in South Florida and her 7-year-old daughter, Yafaat Levine, attends Hebrew Academy on Miami Beach. A day after the brutal attack, they traveled overseas to mourn the loss of a father and grandfather.

Michal’s father, Kalman Levine, was one of the four rabbis murdered in an act of terror in Jerusalem, Monday. “He was praying, and he was actually the one standing outside the doors at the moment he completed his prayer,” said Levine. “I went to the place where, his exact spot where he was murdered, and I was hurting his pain, but I also knew that he was a direct sacrifice, maybe upon a nation.”

As soon as Levine received the tragic news, she took a flight from South Florida with her daughter to Jerusalem. “We’re here, and she was very strong, but we’re still in tears, and I didn’t speak to him recently, and I’m hurting, but if he was here, he would say that everything is for the best,” said Levine. “What hurts is not necessarily bad, and it’s not bad because everything is good.”

Levine rested her head upon her daughter’s as she thanked her classmates for their prayers. “Thank you a lot for caring,” said Yafaat.

When asked to describe her grandfather, Yafaat said he would take the long way to synagogue to pray so he could do more Mitzvot, or acts of goodness and kindness. “He was very nice and would go, there’s two ways to go to,” said Yafaat, “so he goes the long way to get more Mitzvot.”

That long walk will be the 7-year-old’s memory, a man who didn’t want to waste an opportunity to do something kind for another person.

“Stay strong, even in front of other people,” said Levine. “The last thing my father would have wanted out of this is either hatred or anger towards another party.”

Moishe House

Meet Dan, Benji, Sarah and Samantha, four roommates in Washington, DC, whose paths intersected when they all became Moishe House residents. Today, their home is a center of gravity for young Jews in the community who, like them, want to create and share Jewish experiences with friends.

Moishe House is a network of nearly 60 houses in 14 countries that fills a void in the Jewish community created by the growing gap between college years and family life.

Every Moishe House is run by a group of 3-5 young adult residents who are provided with rent subsidies and a program budget to host an average of six monthly events for peers in their community.

What started as a house for four friends in Oakland, California, to host Shabbat dinners has grown into a global network that provides opportunities for 60,000-plus young adults annually.

We partner with organizations like Moishe House because we believe change IS possible.

The American Jewish Community and the Future of Israel – Peter Beinar

J Street U Penn, Hillel Israel Sector, the Reform Jewish Community at Penn, and Penn GPA hosted a presentation from noted political commentator Peter Beinart followed by a QA moderated by Penn Hillel Director, Rabbi Mike Uram.Peter Beinart is author of The Crisis of Zionism and former editor of the Daily Beast blog, Open Zion, which fosters an open and unafraid conversation about Israel, Palestine and the Jewish future. He is currently a columnist for Ha`aretz, and has written for The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, the Boston Globe, the Atlantic and Time.In 2012, Beinart`s informative and provocative `The Crisis of Zionism` sent shock waves through the Jewish community for its contention that Israel`s insistence on prolonging its occupation of the West Bank is leading to increasing estrangement between Israel and American Jewish youth who find it difficult to reconcile their liberal values with a certain definition of Zionism. The book unabashedly delves into the

 Israel – The True Jewish Dream

The Jewish People are supposed to be a Light Unto the Nations, yet Ultimately the goal is for all to return to Israel for the coming of Moshiach.

The Ultra Orthodox vs. The IDF: Israel’s Other Religious War,

Since Israel’s inception, the Haredi — ultra-Orthodox adherents of Judaism —have been exempt from the country’s military conscription laws. But their growing population, coupled with their high unemployment rate and dependence on state benefits, sparked outrage within the country’s secular majority. After years of demanding that the Haredi share the responsibility of serving in the armed forces, the Israeli government passed an unprecedented law in March 2014 that requires Haredi men to serve in the military.

The decision resulted in major opposition from the Ultra Orthodox community, from violent protests to religious leaders demanding that no one should comply. VICE News travels to Israel to speak with hardline members and leaders of the Ultra Orthodox community as well as soldiers in the Netzah Yehuda, the IDF’s Ultra Orthodox Battalion, to get their take on the government’s decision.

Karaite Judaism

From Wikipedia

Karaite Judaism or Karaism (/ˈkærə.t/ or /ˈkærə.ɪzəm/; Hebrew: יהדות קראית , Modern Yahadut Qara’it Tiberian Qārāʾîm ; meaning “Readers (of the Hebrew Scriptures”)[1] is a Jewish movement characterized by the recognition of the Tanakh alone as its supreme legal authority in Halakha (Jewish religious law) and theology. It is distinct from mainstream Rabbinic Judaism, which considers theOral Torah, the legal decisions of the Sanhedrin as codified in the Talmud, and subsequent works to be authoritative interpretations of the Torah. Karaites maintain that all of the divine commandments handed down to Moses by God were recorded in the written Torah, without additional Oral Law or explanation. As a result, Karaite Jews do not accept as binding the written collections of the oral tradition in the Midrash or Talmud. …….From Wikipedia

Stuff Chabad Rabbis Say

Havdalah Event at Caulfield Park +++ The SHTICK

From Wikipedia, A shtick (Yiddish: שטיק) (or schtick) is a comic theme or gimmick. “Shtick” is derived from the Yiddish word shtik (שטיק), meaning “piece”; the closely related German word Stückhas the same meaning. The English word “piece” itself is also sometimes used in a similar context. Another variant is “bits of business” or just “bits”; comic mannerisms such asLaurel and Hardy’s fiddling with their ties, or one of them looking into the camera shaking his head while the other one would ramble on. A shtick can also refer to an adopted persona, usually for comedy performances, that is maintained consistently (though not necessarily exclusively) across the performer’s career. In this usage, the recurring personalities adopted by Laurel and Hardy through all of their many comedy films (despite the fact that they often played characters with different names and professions) would qualify as their shtick. A comedian might maintain several different shticks of this sort, particularly if they appear in a variety show that encourages them to develop multiple characters, such as Saturday Night Live.
In common usage, the word shtick has also come to mean any talent, style, habit, or other eccentricity for which a person is particularly well-known, even if not intended for comedic purposes. For example, a person who is known locally for his or her ability to eat dozens of hot dogs quickly might say that it was their shtick.
Among Orthodox Jews, “shtick” can also refer to wedding shtick, in which wedding guests entertain the bride and groom through dancing, costumes, juggling, and silliness .

Adath Israel: A Community Shul

Adath Israel, located in Hillside/Elizabeth, NJ is the newer sister Shul to the Jewish Educational Center of Elizabeth. Located in suburban surroundings, it is one of the most rapidly growing Orthodox Jewish Communities in the North-East. The neighborhood is well known for its warmth, as exemplified by its very active Chesed and other committees, which make sure that its members are always provided for and its guests welcome. One need not leave the Community for any Jewish amenities, including Kosher restaurants (Pizza, Chinese, or Delicatessen), Kosher Market, Eiruv and Mikveh. In the immediate vicinity are several shopping centers, all well stocked for its kosher customers, in addition to close vicinity to the finest shopping malls in New Jersey, including Jersey Gardens right here in Elizabeth. Access to Manhattan is effortless, with a New Jersey Transit station right in the neighborhood with easy access parking. Access to Brooklyn is a 20-30 minute car trip via the Verrazano Bridge. Access to Newark Airport is convenient as can be; though our community is literally 5 minutes from the Airport, we do not sit in the flight pattern. Every educational option is available locally, beginning with the famous Jewish Educational Center of Elizabeth, which provides education for Nursery through Junior High, and High School (JEC/Bruriah High School). Located in our community is a full time Kollel as well, which opens opportunities for any community members looking for study partners. For higher education, located in our neighborhood is Kean University, with Yeshiva University, Rutgers University, and others in close vicinity.

Our local Shul, Adath Israel, is under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Elazar M. Teitz, and Rabbi Jonathan Schwartz. Both Rabbonim are always available to our shul for halachic consultations. They and other community members deliver a full schedule of shiurim, including Daf Yomi, in addition to a regular scholar in residence program. There is a wonderful communal togetherness and spirit, as we share numerous programs, including weekly “Perek on the lawn” during the summer, a Simchat Torah Luncheon, Chanukah Dinner, and several well planned Shul trips over the course of the year. The community also celebrates its diversity, and boasts an active, daily Sephardic minyan.

אעירה שחר – משירת הבקשות של יהדות מרוקו (חלק ב)

תכנית מיוחדת בת שני חלקים על פיוטי מרוקו עם מיטב הפייטנים – פרק ראשון מתוך שני פרקים.

רבי חיים שושנה נולד במראקש בשנת 1912.
היה מורה ב”כל ישראל חברים” ולימד בתלמוד תורה במראקש.
רבי חיים שושנה היה מטובי מורי ההוראה ומהמשכילים הבולטים מבני מראקש, בין חבריו לרעיונות החינוך התורני במראקש היו רבי דוד דרעי, רבי שלמה זריהן, האחים בן שמול, רבי יוסף הלוי, רבי דוד ביטון, רבי יוסף ביטון ועוד .
הוא דרבן לימוד הדקדוק והבנת הנקרא כי ראה בהם אמצעי להגיע לשיטת לימוד מתקדמת.
בשנת 1956 נבחר לדיין בבית הדין הרבני בקזאבלנקה.
בשנת 1966 עלה לארץ עם משפחתו והתיישב בבאר שבע.
הוא שימש ברבנות בבאר שבע כמנהל המחלקה לענייני נישואין.
נפטר בשנת תשמ”ז.
היה בכיר חוקרי הפיוט של יהודי מרוקו, שלט במכמני היהדות.
חיבורו הענק ”אעירה שחר” הוא גירסה מודרנית ל – ”שיר ידידות” שחובר ע”י רבי דוד אלקיים ממוגדור והודפס במראקש .
הפיוטים נוקדו בידי רבי חיים הבקי היטב בספרות העברית ותורת הניקוד.
בביאור אשר בתחתית העמוד מצוי מידע מדוייק על צורת הפיוט והחריזה, הביאור נקרא ”כנפי שחר”.
בשנת תשמ”ה פרסם ספר שבו קיבץ את כל פיוטיו שאותם כתב עוד במרוקו.
שם הספר ”רחשי ליבי דבר טוב” בספר זה הופיעו פיוטים שכתב, דרשות לבר מצווה, שירים למחותנים, שירי ישועה והצלה וכדומה.
פועלו של רבי חיים שושנה מציב את חוקרי שירת הבקשות של יהודי מרוקו על קרקע יציבה ובטוחה.
דרך חייו ופיוטיו זהים לאלה של פייטני ”שיר ידידות” עצמם.
הודות לדרכו המחקרית של רבי חיים שושנה מתגלים לנו מסתורי ליבם ועולמם של פייטני ”שיר ידידות” כאשר רבי חיים שושנה משמש לנו גשר להבנת עולמם ושירתם.

The Bezalel Arts & Crafts Fair in Jerusalem

Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design

From Wikipedia

File:BezalelLogo.svgBezalel Academy of Arts and Design is Israel’s national school of art, founded in 1906 by Boris Schatz. It is named for the Biblicalfigure Bezalel, son of Uri (Hebrew: בְּצַלְאֵל בֶּן־אוּרִי), who was appointed by Moses to oversee the design and construction of theTabernacle (Exodus 35:30).

The Bezalel School was founded in 1906 by Boris Schatz. Theodor Herzl and the early Zionists believed in the creation of a national style of art blending classical Jewish/Middle Eastern and European traditions. The teachers of Bezalel developed a distinctive school of art, known as the Bezalel school, which portrayed Biblical and Zionist subjects in a style influenced by the European jugendstil (art nouveau) and traditional Persian and Syrian art. The artists blended “varied strands of surroundings, tradition and innovation,” in paintings and craft objects that invokes “biblical themes, Islamic design and European traditions,” in their effort to “carve out a distinctive style of Jewish art” for the new nation they intended to build in the ancient Jewish homeland.[1]  From Wikipedia

Culture Video Warsaw museum tells forgotten history of Poland’s Jews France

Poland’s President Bronislaw Komorowski and his Israeli counterpart, Reuven Rivlin, officially inaugurate the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw on Tuesday, nearly a year and a half after it first opened to the public.

Built on the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto, the museum recounts the rich history of Polish Jews, a community that was all but wiped out during the Holocaust. It is named after the Hebrew word for both “Poland” and “rest here”.

Although it has attracted more than 400,000 visitors since it opened to the public in April, 2013, the museum was never formally inaugurated.

On Tuesday, Komorowski and Rivlin will at long last unveil POLIN’s core exhibition, A 1000-Year History of Polish Jews.

The exhibit was created by a team of scholars and curators under the direction of New York University Professor Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett.

It consists of eight galleries, each examining a different period in the history of Polish Jews, from tales of Jews’ arrival in the country to today’s tentative attempts to reclaim Poland’s Jewish past.

Highlights include centuries-old manuscripts, a scale replica of a sumptuously decorated synagogue and a vast network of multimedia installations, all housed inside a visually striking building whose serene glass façade is broken only by a large crack evoking the Biblical crossing of the Red Sea.

Centre of Jewish life

Jews first arrived in Poland during the Middle Ages. By the mid 18th-century, there were 750,000 living across Poland and Lithuania, then a part of the same kingdom, having been chased out of western Europe.

Over the years, that number steadily grew, turning the country into the global centre of Jewish culture.

By 1939 there were 3.3 million Jews in Poland, the equivalent of around 10 percent of the country’s population. Only between 200,000 to 300,000, however, would survive World War II.

Poland’s Jewish community has since dwindled, largely due to emigration. Polish Jews now number around 20,000, though it is estimated that there are tens of thousands of Poles of Jewish descent who either do not identify with the community or are unaware of their heritage.

The museum’s creation has coincided with an unexpected “coming out” of a third-generation of descendants of Jews who survived the Holocaust.

For instance, a play entitled “The Hideout”, which premiered in Warsaw on Saturday, tells the tale of people who spent two years hiding in closets or under floors during the Nazi occupation. Over the course of the play, it becomes clear that the trauma of the Holocaust runs so deep that survivors dare not speak of it to their children and grandchildren.

Private donors, Diaspora Jews and Poles raised 33 million euros ($42 million) to pay for the museum’s core exhibition, while the city of Warsaw and Poland’s Culture Ministry funded the building to the tune of 42.5 million euros.

What To Expect At A Synagogue –

Going to synagogue for the first time can sometimes be a daunting experience. The architecture may be unfamiliar, the ritual items foreign and words are used in languages other than English.

Knowing what to expect, in advance of your first visit, will help you feel more comfortable in this space.

To that end, we have created a new video, What To Expect At A Synagogue, that takes us inside the building and into the sanctuary. Guided by Rabbi Emma Kippley-Ogman of Kehillath Israel, a Conservative synagogue in Brookline, Massachusetts, we are introduced to the items we might find in the lobby, or just outside the sanctuary; we are taken into the sanctuary for an overview of the features in the space; and we are even given an up close look at items used during services, such as prayer books and a Torah scroll. As we move through, words and concepts are translated into English and explained.

Joachim Prinz

From Wikipedia

Joachim Prinz (May 10, 1902 – September 30, 1988) was a German-American rabbi who was outspoken against Nazism and became aZionist leader.[1] As a young rabbi in Berlin, he was forced to confront the rise of Nazism, and eventually emigrated to the United States in 1937. There he became vice-chairman of the World Jewish Congress, an active member of the World Zionist Organization and a participant in the 1963 Civil Rights March on Washington.[2]

Prinz was born in the village of Bierdzany (near Oppeln) in the Prussian province of Silesia.

Prinz was born to a Jewish family. Early on, he became motivated by a charismatic rabbi and Prinz took an increasing interest in Judaism. His Jewish roots grew even stronger following his mother’s death. By 1917, he had also joined Blau Weiss (Blue White), the Zionist youth movement.

At 21, Joachim Prinz received his Ph.D. in philosophy, and had minored in Art History, at the University of Giessen. He was ordained as a rabbi at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Breslau. He married Lucie Horovitz, the daughter of the seminary’s most prominent professor. She died in Berlin shortly after giving birth to their daughter Lucie. Prinz married Hilde Goldschmidt in 1932. They had three children, Michael (born in Berlin), Jonathan and Deborah (both born in the United States)…………..From Wikipedia

As a young rabbi in Berlin in the 1930s, Joachim Prinz preached openly against the Nazi Regime and saved many lives by encouraging Jews to leave Germany. Twenty years later, Prinz became a prominent leader of the civil rights movement in the US alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., culminating in his stirring speech at the 1963 March on Washington in which he proclaimed, ‘America must not become a nation of onlookers! America must not remain silent.’ Prinz also helped build the State of Israel and spoke out boldly for peace in the Middle East.

Jewish Partisans Tribute

Tribute to the brave warriors that fought against Nazi tyranny and oppression in WWII. Here are the lyrics to this famous partisan song (sung by Chava Alberstein) called Zog Nit Keynmol:

Partisans Song – zog nit keyn mol

Daniel sings the hebrew version of the Partisans’ song. Written by Hirsch Glick (1922-1944)

Hebrew words:

אַל נָא תֹּאמַר: הִנֵּה דַּרְכִּי הָאַחֲרוֹנָה,
אֶת אוֹר הַיּוֹם הִסְתִּירוּ שְׁמֵי הָעֲנָנָה
זֶה יוֹם נִכְסַפְנוּ לוֹ עוֹד יַעַל וְיָבוֹא
וּמִצְעָדֵנוּ עוֹד יַרְעִים: אֲנַחְנוּ פֹּה

The words in English and in Yiddish:

Never say this is the final road for you,
Though leaden skies may cover over days of blue.
As the hour that we longed for is so near,
Our step beats out the message: we are here!

From lands so green with palms to lands all white with snow.
We shall be coming with our anguish and our woe,
And where a spurt of our blood fell on the earth,
There our courage and our spirit have rebirth!

The early morning sun will brighten our day,
And yesterday with our foe will fade away,
But if the sun delays and in the east remains —
This song as password generations must remain.

This song was written with our blood and not with lead,
It’s not a little tune that birds sing overhead,
This song a people sang amid collapsing walls,
With pistols in hand they heeded to the call.

Therefore never say the road now ends for you,
Though leaden skies may cover over days of blue.
As the hour that we longed for is so near,
Our step beats out the message: we are here!

Zog nit keyn mol az du geyst dem letstn veg,
Khotsh himeln blayene farshtein bloye teg.

Gilad Atzmon on ‘Jew, Judaism, Jewishness’ – an interview with Bill Alford

Author of runaway best seller The Wandering Who? discusses Three Jewish ID Categories: Religious Jew, Born a Jew and Politicized Jew aka Jewishness.

Jewishness pertains most. It is a problematic mix of ideology and culture. Atzmon characterized Jewishness as different manifestations of Jewish self-loving. Zionism, he observes, is just one form of Jewishness amongst many. Jewish Left is as exeptionalist and similarly exclusive.

Atzmon emphasizes the bane of Political Correctness – politics that allows for no opposition. He submits Political Correctness has been a Jewish Left Project for forty years, the period hearts & minds of The West have been essentially captured.

The important questions about Israel, and its supporting Lobby, are not even asked – What Is Jewishness and what are the relationships between Jews, Judaism, Zionism and Jewishness?

What would happen if it were proved to you that God exists? How would it make you feel? Aish HaTorah’s Rabbi Moshe Zeldman discusses the importance of being objective within one’s intellectual pursuits and being careful to avoid emotional bias.

“If we’re open to truth and we’re open to objectivity, we can make amazing discoveries about what’s really out there in the world.”

Rabbi Moshe Zeldman was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He has been involved in Jewish activism since his undergraduate years at the University of Toronto, where he studied Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence. Rabbi Zeldman was elected national chairman of the Canadian Jewish Students Network, led one of the first Jewish delegations to visit the concentration camps in Poland, and was involved in lobby efforts with Canada’s Prime Minister on a variety of Jewish and Israel-related issues. He has served on the executive board of the World Union of Jewish Students, and has lectured to Jewish communities in 15 countries across the globe. He teaches on a variety of Jewish topics for Aish HaTorah, AEPi, Birthright, Hillel, the Maimonides program at Princeton, Tel Aviv and Hebrew University, and NCSY. Rabbi Zeldman resides in Jerusalem with his family.

Patrick Modiano Wins Nobel Prize In Literature 2014 – France’s Modiano Won Literature Nobel

French novelist Patrick Modiano has won the 2014 Nobel Prize in literature.
Modiano, the author of Missing Person and Lacombe Lucien – which was made into a film by Louis Malle – was the bookies favourites overnight. He beat a competitive field that included Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Japanese author Haruki Murakami, Belarusian investigative journalist and author Svetlana Alexievich, and Syrian poet Adonis.
Modiano, 69, published his first novel, La Place de l’Etoile, in 1968; he won the Prix Goncourt in 1978, and over the following three decades he has confirmed his status with a celebrated body of work, including Out of the Dark and Dora Bruder. “Actually, I never thought of doing anything else,” he said of his literary career in 2011 to France Today. “I had no diploma, no definite goal to achieve. But it is tough for a young writer to begin so early. Really, I prefer not to read my early books. Not that I don’t like them, but I don’t recognise myself anymore, like an old actor watching himself as a young leading man.”
Modiano was born in a west Paris suburb two months after World War II ended in Europe in July 1945. His father was of Jewish Italian origins and met his Belgian actress mother during the occupation of Paris – and his beginnings have strongly influenced his writing. The Swedish Academy, which selects Nobel Literature winners, praised Modiano “for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation”.
The American authors Philip Roth and Thomas Pynchon were once again overlooked for the biggest prize in literature. Modiano takes home eight million kronor (£693,000).

American Moshe Twersky Killed at Israeli Synagogue Has Ties to NJ

Rabbi Moshe Twersky Hy”d on Being Killed For a Kiddush Hashem

This is an excerpt from a lecture Rabbi Moshe Twersky Hy”d delivered in Yeshivas Toras Moshe on June 22, 2012. The lecture was a conclusion on the topic of being killed על קידוש השם.
On November 18, 2014, Rabbi Twersky was praying at a synagogue in the Har Nof section of Jerusalem. Two Arab terrorists armed with an ax, a knife, and a gun, burst into the sanctuary during the prayers and brutally murdered Rabbi Twersky and four other rabbis. A Druze police office later died as well from wounds inflicted on him during a shootout with the terrorists. Many congregants were wounded during the attack, some critically.
The following is a transcript of the audio:
“Then it was more common, but again, you have to be ready for קידוש השם; you can never tell. One never knows. It can happen anywhere that a גוי says, “do an עבירה .” It can happen anywhere. It can happen in Moscow, it can happen in Paris, it can happen in London, it can happen in New York. It can happen in Yerushalayim somewhere, [that] some Arab could come with a knife, yes, it could happen. It’s not מובקע (a removed concept) today anywhere, and in any place. Any time and any place it could happen. זיכר (sure) it could happen, that’s for sure. It could happen im yirtze Hashem.”
It is important to note that Rabbi Twersky was, in fact, killed in Yerushalayim, by Arabs who were armed with a knife.
The picture on this video was taken at a Chanuka party held at Rabbi Twersky’s house in 2012. Notice the absent label on the bottle in front of him. Due to his extreme piety, Rabbi Twersky would produce and bottle his own wine. He would not eat any food produced outside his home.

The king of Yiddish Music: Leo Fuld – Where can I go? (Wo Ahin soll Ich Geh’n?)

“When I was a child, on Sunday mornings the family would assemble around the blue-leather-covered gramophone to listen to records. Apart from the Light Programme, there was no music in the house during the rest of the week, and anyway, the star of my parents’ collection of 78s was now heard only occasionally on the BBC. His discs, kept carefully in a cupboard in their paper wrappers, were placed on the turntable, the stylus lowered, and within a few notes we were all sobbing.
For the singer, Leo Fuld, was renowned as the leading exponent of Yiddish song; he was, as it turned out, the last great Yiddish star. Einstein was said to be a fan. Fuld had had two smash hits: one was a cover of Sophie Tucker’s My Yiddishe Momma, but it was the second, Wo Ahin Soll Ich Geh’n (Tell Me Where Shall I Go), that had us crying our eyes out.
Tell Me Where Shall I Go told the story in two devastating verses, sung in Yiddish and English, of a man with no country.”

Conversations with History – Avner Cohen

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes author Avner Cohen for a discussion of his new book The Worst-Kept Secret: Israel’s Bargain with the Bomb. Tracing the history of Israel’s nuclear weapons program, Cohen explicates Israel’s nuclear doctrine of amimut (opacity) analyzing its implications for Israel’s democracy and for Israel’s international engagement. Though the doctrine made sense in earlier phases of Israel’s nuclear program, Cohen argues that in today’s post-911 world, it conflicts with the norms of the international system, especially the effort to adapt non-proliferation to the realities of the 21st century. The conversation concludes with an analysis of the threat posed to Israel if Iran succeeds in acquiring nuclear weapons.

912 days of the Warsaw Ghetto

The Warsaw Ghetto was established by the German Governor-General Hans Frank on October 16, 1940. Frank ordered Jews in Warsaw and its suburbs rounded up and herded into the Ghetto. At this time, the population in the Ghetto was estimated to be 400,000 people, about 30% of the population of Warsaw; however, the size of the Ghetto was about 2.4% of the size of Warsaw.
The construction of the ghetto wall started on April 1, 1940, but the Germans closed the Warsaw Ghetto to the outside world on November 16 that year. The wall was typically 3 m (9.8 ft) high and topped with barbed wire. Escapees could be shot on sight. The borders of the ghetto changed many times through the next years.
The ghetto was divided by Chłodna Street, which due to its importance (Warsaw’s major street leading to the east) was excluded from it. The area south of Chłodna was known as “Small Ghetto”, while the area north of this street — “Large Ghetto”. Those two parts were connected by Żelazna Street (special gate was built at its intersection with Chłodna Street). In January 1942 a wooden footbridge, which after the war became one of the symbols of the Holocaust, was built there to ease pedestrian traffic. The first commissioner of the Warsaw ghetto was his chief organizer SA-Standartenführer Waldemar Schön. He was succeeded in May 1941 by Heinz Auerswald.
On January 18, 1943, after almost four months without any deportations, the Germans suddenly entered the Warsaw ghetto intent upon a further deportation. Within hours, some 600 Jews were shot and 5,000 others rounded up.
The Germans expected no resistance, but preparations to resist had been going on since the previous autumn. The first instances of Jewish armed resistance began that day. The Jewish fighters had some success: the expulsion stopped after four days and the ŻOB and ŻZW resistance organizations took control of the Ghetto, building shelters and fighting posts and operating against Jewish collaborators.
The final battle started on the eve of Passover of April 19, 1943, when a Nazi force consisting of several thousand troops entered the ghetto. After initial setbacks, the Germans under the field command of Jürgen Stroop systematically burned and blew up the ghetto buildings, block by block, rounding up or murdering anybody they could capture. Significant resistance ended on April 28, and the Nazi operation officially ended in mid-May, symbolically culminating with the demolition of the Great Synagogue of Warsaw on May 16. According to the official report, at least 56,065 people were killed on the spot or deported to German Nazi concentration and death camps, most of them to Treblinka.

The Forgotten Refuge – Full Documentary Movie

The Forgotten Refugees
A film about the mass exodus of up to one million Jews from Arab countries

In 1945, up to one million Jews lived in the Middle East outside of the Palestine Mandate and in North Africa. Within a few years, only a few thousand remained.

This is the story of the thousands who fled their homes, who endured in refugee camps, and who today quietly carry the memory of a destroyed civilization.

The Forgotten Refugees explores the history and destruction of Middle Eastern Jewish communities, some of which had existed for over 2,500 years.

Featuring testimony from Jews who fled Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Yemen, these personal stories of refugees are interspersed with dramatic archival footage, including rescue missions of Yemenite and Iraqi Jews.

Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi – The Secrets Of Chanukah


From Wikipedia

From Wikipedia

“A Hanukkah Project” exhibition at The Jewish Museum (New York) in 2010 presented a rare selection of Hanukkah lamps from the Museum’s collection.

Hanukkah (/ˈhɑːnəkə/ hah-nə-kə; Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, Tiberian: Ḥănukkāh, usually spelled חנוכה, pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew; a transliteration also romanized as Chanukah or Chanukkah), also known as the Festival of Lights, Feast of Dedication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalemat the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah or hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical menorah consists of eight branches with an additional raised branch. The extra light is called a shamash (Hebrew: שמש‎, “attendant”)[1] and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. The purpose of the shamash is to have a light available for practical use, as using the Hanukkah lights themselves for purposes other than publicizing and meditating upon Hanukkah is forbidden . From Wikipedia

Jewish Treats Acts of Kindness for Israel

On this Fast of the 17th of Tammuz, Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald, the Director of NJOP, discusses how remembering what happened on this day in Jewish history helps us identify with our past but it is also a day when we need to identify with the present and future. Even while people are protecting themselves from Hamas’ rockets, some admirable stories are coming out from Israel. Rabbi Buchwald tells of a couple that’s wedding was canceled in the south of Israel due to rockets nearby and a councilman treated them to a wedding in Jerusalem. This should remind us that all the meritorious acts will be for the merit of those in Israel. So let’s use this day and the coming days to do acts of kindness so that our people will be spared any future sorrow and God should bless us with goodness and peace.

KiruvMedia Subbotniks – Russians who embraced Judaism – Khazars and more…


The Subbotniks were ethnic Russian peasants in southern Russia who embraced Jewish practice and converted to Judaism more than 200 years ago under the Czarist regime.
They were referred to by the term “Subbotniks” because of their love of the Subbot, which is Russian for Sabbath.
In the early 19th century, Czar Alexander I expelled them from their homes and deported them to the far reaches of the empire as punishment for their adoption of Judaism.
They were later ruthlessly persecuted by the Communists, and thousands of them were murdered by the Germans after the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in World War II.
There are still an estimated 15,000 Subbotnik Jews living primarily in southern Russia and in Siberia, most of whom wish to return to the traditions of their ancestors and emigrate to Israel.

This Day in Jewish History / Civil war breaks out in Palestine

It was on this day, November 30, 1947, that civil war broke out between Jews and Palestinian Arabs in British Mandate Palestine. The war would … 

Origins of Israel Palestinian Conflict


The Israeli Arab conflict is the result of interactions of superpowers in the early 20th century. British and French strategic interests in the Middle East were related to the Mediterranean trading route, which went from the Suez channel to Indian markets. But the presence of the Ottoman navy based in the Levant was a direct threat to British interests. So the British and the French decided to divide the Middle East into smaller entities and countries to make it impossible for the Ottoman Empire to control them all. A century later, the legacy of European colonization of the Arab world is reflected by its many ongoing conflicts.

Mandatory Palestine

From Wikipedia,

File:Samuelarrival.jpgMandatory Palestine[1] (Arabic: فلسطينFilasţīn; Hebrew: פָּלֶשְׂתִּינָה (א”י) Palestína (EY), where “EY” indicates “Eretz Yisrael” (Land of Israel)) was a geopolitical entity under British administration, carved out of Ottoman Southern Syria after World War I. British civil administration in Palestine operated from 1920 until 1948. During its existence it was known simply as Palestine, but, in retrospect, as distinguishers, a variety of other names and descriptors including Mandatory or Mandate Palestine, also British Palestine and the British Mandate of Palestine, have been used to refer to it.

During the First World War an Arab uprising and British campaign led by General Edmund Allenby, the British Empire’s commander of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force, drove the Turks out of the Levant, a part of which was the Sinai and Palestine Campaign.[2] The United Kingdom had agreed in the McMahon–Hussein Correspondence that it would honour Arab independence if they revolted against the Ottomans. The two sides had different interpretations of this agreement. In the event, the UK and France divided up the area under the Sykes–Picot Agreement, an act of betrayal in the opinion of the Arabs. Further confusing the issue was the Balfour Declaration promising support for a Jewish “national home” in Palestine. After the war ended, a military administration, named Occupied Enemy Territory Administration, was established in the captured territory of the former Ottoman Syria. The British sought legitimacy for their continued control of the region and this was achieved by obtaining a mandate from the League of Nations in June 1922. The formal objective of the League of Nations Mandate system was to administer parts of the defunct Ottoman Empire, which had been in control of the Middle East since the 16th century, “until such time as they are able to stand alone.”[3]   From Wikipedia,


File:JB HQ.jpgThe civil Mandate administration was formalized with the League of Nations’ consent in 1923 under the British Mandate for Palestine, which covered two administrative areas. The land west of the Jordan River, known as Palestine, was under direct British administration until 1948, while the land east of the Jordan was a semi-autonomous region known as Transjordan, under the rule of theHashemite family from the Hijaz, and gained independence in 1946.[4]  From Wikipedia,

Jon Stewart

From Wikipedia

Rallytorestoresanity-jonstewart.pngJonathan Stuart Leibowitz (born November 28, 1962), widely known as Jon Stewart, is an American political satirist, writer, producer, director, television host, actor, media critic, and stand-up comedian. He is the host of The Daily Show, a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central.

Stewart started as a stand-up comedian, but branched into television as host of Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central. He went on to host his own show on MTV, called The Jon Stewart Show, and then hosted another show on MTV called You Wrote It, You Watch It. He has also had several film roles as an actor, but has done few cinematic projects since becoming the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central in early 1999. He is also a writer and co-executive producer of the show. After Stewart joined, The Daily Show steadily gained popularity and critical acclaim, resulting in his nineteen Emmy Awards.

Stewart was born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz[5] in New York City into a well-educated middle class Jewish family.[5] Jon’s mother, Marian (née Laskin), is an educational consultant and teacher.[5] His father (who died on June 8, 2013), Donald Leibowitz, was a professor of physics at The College of New Jersey and Thomas Edison State College.[11] [12] Stewart’s family emigrated to the U.S. from Poland, Ukraine and Belarus; one of his grandfathers was born in Manzhouli (now part of Inner Mongolia).[13] Stewart’s parents divorced when Stewart was eleven years old, and Stewart was apparently largely estranged from his father.[5] ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  From Wikipedia

Feed Me Bubbe

From Wikipedia

Feed Me Bubbe is a Jewish cooking show that is produced on a shoestring budget. “Bubbe” is the Yiddish word for “Grandmother.” Bubbe’s grandson Avrom introduces each show declaring that “Bubbe” is one of the three words he needs to know when he is hungry and looking for Kosher food.

The series is produced by Chalutz Productions (so called because Chalutz is Hebrew for “pioneer”). Feed Me Bubbe is part of the new trend in podcasting known as “Vodcast.”

Being mentioned in British newspapers, as well as Avrom and Bubbe being guests or highlighted on many other podcasts, has led toFeed Me Bubbe quickly gaining a wide audience and becoming noted……..  From Wikipedia

Abram Games

From Wikipedia

Abram Games OBE, RDI (29 July 1914, Whitechapel, London – 27 August 1996, London) was a British graphic designer.

Born Abraham Gamse in Whitechapel, London on 29 July, the day after World War I began in 1914, he was the son of Joseph Gamse, aLatvian photographer, and Sarah, a seamstress born on the border of Russia and Poland. His father anglicised the family name to Games when Abram was 12.[1] Games left Hackney Downs School at the age of 16 and went to Saint Martin’s School of Art in London. Disillusioned by the teaching at Saint Martin’s and worried about the expense of studying there, Games left after two terms. However, while working as a “studio boy” in commercial design firm Askew-Young in London 1932–36, he was attending night classes in life drawing. He was fired from this position due to his jumping over four chairs as a prank.[1] In 1934, his entry was second in the Health Council Competition and, in 1935, won a poster competition for the London City Council. 1936–40, he was on his own as a freelance poster artist. >>>>  From Wikipedia

My Journey from Kuwaiti Arab to Jerusalemite Jew

My Journey from Kuwaiti Arab to Jerusalemite Jew
Kislev 2, 5775 · November 24, 2014


It seems like it was only yesterday that I was a young teenager wearing a dish-dasha(white robe) in Kuwait, and now I wear a kipah and live in Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is where my grandparents on my mother’s side met. My Jewish grandmother met my Palestinian Muslim grandfather when they were both in their late teens. She later converted to Islam, got married to my grandfather, and lived in Shechem for many years. Following the 1970 Black September uprising, my grandfather—who was a high-ranking officer in Jordan’s Arab Legion—was cashiered when King Hussein purged his army of Palestinians. The family relocated to Kuwait, where oil profits were fueling huge business and construction projects. In Kuwait, my mother met my father and got married.

My grandfather, Mohammad Al-Masri (3rd from the right) with King Hussein of Jordan (3rd from the left).

My father was born in Beisan (Beit She’an in Hebrew), Israel, and owned a successful construction company in Kuwait that built some of Kuwait’s popular landmarks (which I proudly show off to my friends over Google Earth today). My father attended university in Egypt and was a staunch follower of the Nasser school of thought, Pan Arabism—the unification of the Arab World. I was brought up to believe that Israel was the only obstacle to Arab unity, a satellite presence planted by Western colonial powers to keep the Arab world divided. Therefore, Israel had to be destroyed.

Our family was as secular as a family can be in Arabia. My father was more of a deist than an atheist—he believed in a creator, but strongly rejected all religions, especially Islam. My mother wasn’t into religion either at the time, as her priorities were our home and social events. At home we were loosely traditional; we partially observed Ramadan (not the fasting part) and celebrated the two Eid holidays by hosting feasts and visiting friends, family and business partners.

The only religious influence around was my grandfather. Out of love for him, I accompanied him to mosque several times. I never really learned how to pray; I’d stand, kneel and bow in sync with everyone else, then sit on the ground and listen to the sermon. The “sermon” often consisted of the imam’s nonstop screaming and shouting about the evils of the Jews. The imam would tell many stories of the horrible things Jews did to Prophet Mohammad, and explain how Allah doomed them to the level of animals, and that fighting the Jews was the duty of every Muslim who loved his religion.

My grandmother was born to a Jewish family in Jerusalem.

I’ll never forget how the Imam described Joseph’s brothers as “evil Jewish brothers of the prophet of Islam, who threw him down the well and then sold him into slavery.” The imam then said, “You see how Jews treat their own brothers!” That story angered me. Then, according to custom, the imam finished his sermon with a stream of supplications calling for the destruction of the Jewish people, while the crowd responded to each supplication with a thunderous “Amen!” Even then, as a ten-year-old, this was quite chilling.

After an eventful prayer session, we’d walk back together to my grandparents’ home to have lunch with everyone. The smells of my grandmother’s delicious food took my mind off of the horrible stories I heard at mosque. But as we ate, I’d think to myself, How could my sweet grandmother have belonged to an evil Jewish cult built on killing of innocent people? Is that why she left? And was she a descendant of pigs and monkeys? Or perhaps the imam was exaggerating? After all, my father told me that religious people were crazy: “Never trust people with beards! “

With my grandfather.

When my parents went on vacation, they usually left us with our grandparents. As kids will do, I snooped around in my grandparents’ room, and once found my grandmother’s birth certificate, along with old pictures. The last name on the birth certificate was Mizrahi. It struck me as an odd name that I had never heard of. The header on the document was in Arabic, Hebrew and English. I didn’t know what Hebrew looked like, but I recognized the letters I had seen in the small book my grandmother would sometimes read from when she sat alone in the guest room, tears trickling down her face. I suspected my grandmother was reciting Jewish prayers, because on the news, I had seen Jews praying by “Ha’it al Mabka”—the Wailing Wall in Arabic.

Anti-Semitism was commonplace in Kuwait. I remember a show that the Palestinian boy scouts would put on, which ended with the burning of the Israeli flag. One year, I took part in one of the shows. In a twisted way, the organizers wanted to show their success in creating a generation of defenders of the “cause,” which helped them raise millions in donations from sympathizers.

My father was a strong supporter of the PLO himself. Since the 1960s, a portion of his monthly salary was deducted and sent to the organization founded by Yasser Arafat (also an engineer working in Kuwait at the time), which promised to finance armed groups to liberate Palestine one day. Arafat raised money from wealthy Palestinians working in Kuwait, as well as from Kuwaitis and the Kuwaiti government. Later, he’d turn against the same government that helped him become a political force, by aligning with Saddam Hussein against Kuwait. My father said that with the hundreds of millions of dollars Arafat raised, he could’ve created five-star services and infrastructure in the West Bank, but he decided to appropriate the money instead.

In the summer of 1990, when I was 12 years old, our lives changed completely. We were on vacation when Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein invaded and annexed Kuwait. My father’s business—along with much of the country—was ravaged. Our savings became worthless pieces of paper. We could not return to Kuwait, so we immigrated to Canada. My father managed to sneak back into Kuwait for a few days to retrieve important business documents that would later be useful in recovering compensation from a United Nations fund.

But life in the new world didn’t suit my family well, and they returned to the Middle East, while I stayed in Canada to attend university.

During my final year at the University of Western Ontario, while I was studying at the Weldon Library, I went down to use the pay phone and found a man sitting at a small table cutting up a green apple. From his dress, he looked Jewish, so I went up to him and asked him straightforwardly, “Hi, are you a Jew?”

He looked up with a smile and answered “No, but I like to dress this way.”

I wondered to myself, Are Jewish people supposed to be funny? I introduced myself and told him that I wanted to do something to advance peace in the Middle East. I added that I didn’t believe in religion and didn’t completely hate Jews because my grandmother was Jewish.

He introduced himself to me as Dr. Yitzchok Block, a professor of philosophy from Harvard who taught at UWO. He invited me to sit down, and cut me a piece of his apple. He asked me, “Which side of the family is that grandmother from?”

I replied, “My mother’s side. My father’s parents died before I was born.”

Dr. Block said gently, “If that’s the case, then by Muslim law you’re Muslim, and by Jewish law you’re a Jew. A Jew can convert 10 times and he’ll still be a Jew, and by Jewish law religion is transferred by the mother, which makes your mother Jewish, and makes you a Jew. “

I was completely dumbfounded. Memories flooded into my mind—my grandmother, the “evil Jews,” mosque sermons, Israeli TV . . .

I ran home and told my roommate, who said, “So that makes you a ‘Mus-Jew.’” I was not amused.

I went up to my room, called my mom, and told her what happened. She told me to stay away from Dr. Block. But I called my grandmother, and we spoke for quite some time, and she told me about her family and younger brother who died in the early days of the establishment of Israel. I finally mustered the courage to ask her, “Tata, are you Jewish?” I never heard my grandmother as distressed in all my life. She cried and told me more stories about her family and how Jews and Arabs used to be friends.

I decided not to pursue the idea that I was a Jew, as I was finishing university and this wasn’t a topic worth upsetting my family over. I did speak on the phone once with Dr. Block and met with his son-in-law, Rabbi Lazer Gurkow, who was a rabbi of a congregation close by. He recommended books to read and mentioned his synagogue.

One evening, while rollerblading on the street, I suddenly fell to the ground, although the street was smooth and there was no visible cause for the fall. I immediately felt that it was a “push” from up above. My right wrist was sprained and bandaged, and I couldn’t go to work for some time.

That Saturday morning, I remembered that Jews went to synagogue on Saturdays. I contemplated going to Dr. Block’s synagogue to check it out, but I was hesitant, thinking, “I look so Middle Eastern; I’ll probably scare people off.” I decided to go anyway. I looked up the address and called a cab, not knowing it would be the last time I would ride in a cab on Shabbat.

When I arrived at the shul, I thought, I’ll just go in, how bad could it be? If worst comes to worst, I won’t come back again. I opened the door, and there stood an Indian gentleman, who handed me a kipah and greeted me with “Shabbat Shalom.” Cool, I thought. I looked around for Dr. Block, and found him standing all the way in the back, with a book in his hands. He greeted me with the same reassuring, warm smile and said, “Good Shabbos.”

I asked him, “What are you reading?”

Learning Torah (credit: Dafna Tal).

He replied, “I like to learn on Shabbos.”

“Aren’t you done studying by now?” I asked, thinking to myself that he must be retired at this age.

He answered, “Even if I would live another lifetime, I wouldn’t be done learning.” That sentence didn’t register until much later in life.

The congregation was a mix of all ages, and everyone was responding to the rabbi enthusiastically. I was handed a prayerbook, and someone was calling out the page numbers. Soon I found myself reading a song that I’d be reading every Shabbat from then on:

“Ve-shamru v’nei Yisrael et ha-Shabbat, la’asot et ha-Shabbat le-dorotam berit olam. Bei-ni u-vein b’nei Yisrael ot hi le-olam, ki shei-shet ya-mim ah-sah A-do-nai, et ha-sha-mayim ve-et ha-aretz uva-yom ha-shevi’i shavat va-yi-nafash.”

“And the Children of Israel observed the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath for their generations an eternal covenant. Between Me and the Children of Israel it is a sign forever, that in six days did G‑d make the heaven and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.”

I didn’t understand Hebrew, but between my Arabic and the English translation, I could understand the words. “Between Me and the Children of Israel it is a sign forever.” It was true. By then, my tears were streaming down.

I met a few people over Kiddush, including an African Falasha gentleman and an Egyptian couple who, when they learned of my birthplace, asked me in Arabic, “Do you speak Arabic?” I felt like saying, “Shush, the Jews are here!”

Rabbi Gurkow is spiritual leader of Congregation Beth Tefilah in London, Ontario.

After the Kiddush, Dr. Block invited me to his home for lunch. I wasn’t used to accepting too much from people, so I politely declined, but he said, “We’re having several guests, and one more won’t be a bother. My wife makes delicious chicken.”

I gave him a big smile and told him it would be my pleasure.

At Dr. Block’s home, there were around 10 people at that table, a mix of students and professionals. The conversation was lively, and people were encouraged to ask challenging questions. Later, we read parts of a story about a queen named Esther and how she strived to save her people from an evil man who wanted to destroy the Jews. It reminded me of the systematic anti-Jewish indoctrination I grew up with. We didn’t finish the story of Esther, and I wondered whether the Jews were saved in the end.

Dr. Block was a great host. He walked me to the door and thanked me for coming over. I told him it felt like I’d done this before—it was weird. He said, “It’s not hard to believe. Every Jew is born with a little Torah and a little menorah inside.” He nudged me with his shoulder and said, “All it takes is for another Jew to bump into him to light it up.”

When I got home, I waited until after sunset to turn my computer on, like I was advised, and I started searching until I found “The Book of Esther.” I devoured the story until the end, sighing with relief that G‑d had saved the Jews from the plot of those who wanted their destruction. I felt a sense of ownership of my newfound Jewish identity, and decided I wanted to experience Shabbat some more. I spoke with my employer, and I started observing Shabbat regularly.

A few months later, I moved to Toronto for further university studies. I started going toshul there too, and I studied at the Lubavitch yeshivah every Tuesday to learn more about my newfound background. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn. I also taught myself Hebrew, and became more observant of Shabbat laws. Life started to have more meaning for me, and I felt comfortable telling my friends and family I was a Jew.

Harvesting lulavim in Abu Dhabi

Initially, my family was tolerant of my Jewish involvement, viewing it as a passing phase. Then my mother started to become more religious as a Muslim. I learned that she had started to cover her hair after my aunt died in a car accident. As she became more observant, she started attacking me with the same words and phrases Muslims use against Jews. My mother’s extreme religious level clashed with my father’s anti-religious beliefs, and they eventually divorced.

I didn’t fare well with my father, either. Once, while we were discussing how terrorism and crime was becoming out of control in the Middle East, I asked, “Why is the life of an Israeli soldier fighting for his people worth less than that of a terrorist civilian aiming to kill and maim others because he was told to do so by a fanatic?” My dad himself had taught me that fanatics brainwash children into becoming suicide bombers, but when the topic involved Jews, the narrative suddenly changed. He called me a Zionist and threatened to remove me from his will.

One day, a rabbi told me that since I didn’t have physical proof of my Jewish claims, and my family had been outside of Jewish life for a few generations, I’d have to convert. I had a difficult time wrapping my head around the idea of conversion. My family didn’t want to speak with me, I had shed the skin I’d worn for the past 26 years of my life to become a completely different person—and now I had to convert? I reminded myself that deep inside, the main reason I wanted to be Jewish was to marry a Jewish girl and continue the family line.

I decided to take the plunge and went to the Beit Din in Toronto. We started the process, and later I was advised to spend some time at a yeshivah in Israel. I went to Israel and fell in love with the land and the people I had been told were “animals” and “killers.” I found a genuine family of Jews from all around the world. Jews of all colors and nationalities, Jews who were creative, innovative, accepting and loving . . . just like the first Jew I encountered at UWO.

Touching down in Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.

After three years of learning Jewish law and philosophy, I was invited for an interview with the Beit Din of Rav Nissim Karelitz. I was tested thoroughly on various topics of law, and I passed flawlessly. I was officially accepted as a member of the Jewish people. My dream finally came true—I could marry and have Jewish children, as Jewish as everyone else.

On August 6, 2014—the day right after Tisha b’Av—I made my way to a Second Temple-period mikvah by the Western Wall in preparation for my wedding ceremony.

It was a beautiful summer day in Nes Harim, at the outskirts of Jerusalem, overlooking the Judean hills. Our guests included close friends from Israel, Canada, the United States, Finland, Sweden and the United Arab Emirates. My yeshivah rabbis, classmates and business associates also attended. Rabbi Israel Weisel officiated.

Praying with tefillin on a recent trip to Abu Dhabi

My bride Linda and I came from different sides of the planet, both geographically and culturally. Linda grew up the daughter of a Lutheran priest in Finland, and I a secular Muslim in Kuwait, but after our individual journeys to Judaism, this was more than we could both have dreamed of.

Today, I live in Jerusalem with my wife, where we plan to raise a family and build a Jewish home for generations to come, continuing where my grandmother left off.

The Documentary – Auschwitz The Forgotten Evidence History

Sixty years ago, on January 27th, 1945, the Red Army liberated what was left of the Auschwitz extermination camp. Taylor Downing reveals extraordinary aerial photographs of the camp taken during the summer of 1944, which pose awkward questions about why the Allies did not act to stop the killing.

On August 23rd, 1944 a Mosquito aircraft of the 60th Photo Reconnaissance Squadron loaded up with camera and film to fly a long 1,200 mile mission over southern Poland. The aircraft was based at the recently captured Foggia airfield in south-east Italy and the use of this airfield enabled Allied photo-reconnaissance flights to cover much more of occupied Europe than had previously been possible. The mission of this flight was to photograph the I.G. Farben chemical plant near a town called Monowitz, near Krakow in southern Poland. Allied intelligence had picked up evidence that this chemical plant was being expanded in order to produce synthetic oil. As access to the oilfields and refineries of south-eastern Europe was being lost to the Germans, the production of synthetic oil was now crucial for the Nazi war machine. And destroying this petro-chemical industry was becoming a priority for the Allies.

Theresienstadt concentration camp

From Wikipedia

Theresienstadt concentration camp, also referred to as Theresienstadt Ghetto,[1][2][3] was established by the SS duringWorld War II in the fortress and garrison city of Terezín (German name Theresienstadt), located in what is now the Czech Republic. During World War II it served as a Nazi concentration camp staffed by German Nazi guards.

Tens of thousands of people died there, some killed outright and others dying from malnutrition and disease. More than 150,000 other persons (including tens of thousands of children) were held there for months or years, before being sent by rail transports to their deaths at Treblinka and Auschwitz extermination camps in occupied Poland, as well as to smaller camps ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,   From Wikipedia

WWII Liberator Meets Concentration Camp Survivor In Rockland County

NANUET – A war hero in Rockland got the chance to meet one of the many people he helped save from a concentration camp in Austria during World War II.

Alan Moskin, of Nanuet, was honored yesterday at a ceremony in front of the Rockland County Legislature for his role in helping liberate Gunskirchen Concentration Camp in 1945.

At the ceremony, he was introduced to Rose Farkas, who credits Moskin with helping save her life. “My whole life, I have to thank him. My whole life. Otherwise, I wouldn’t live today,” says Farkas.

“It’s quite moving every time I meet someone who survived the Gunskirchen. I was a young 18-year-old liberator, and I find it’s a miracle anyone did survive that camp. The hell and the horror I witnessed there,” says Moskin.

Farkas’s grandson, county Legislator Aron Weider, arranged the meeting.

Sid Luckman

From Wikipedia,

Sidluckman.JPGSidney Luckman, known as Sid Luckman, (November 21, 1916 – July 5, 1998) was an American football quarterback for theChicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL) from 1939 to 1950. During his 12 seasons with the Bears he led them to four NFL championships.

Luckman was the first modern T-formation quarterback[1] and is considered the greatest long range passer of his time.[1][2] He was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1943, and Pulitzer prize winning sports writer Ira Berkow wrote that Luckman was “the first great T-formation quarterback”.[3] Following his retirement from playing, Luckman continued his association with football by tutoring college coaches, focusing on the passing aspect of the game.

Luckman was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1965,[4] and in 1988 he was declared a joint winner of the Walter Camp Distinguished American Award.[5]

Luckman was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Jewish immigrants from Germany. His father sparked his interest in American football at age eight, by giving him a football to play with.[1] He and his parents lived in a residence near Prospect Park and it was here as a youngster that Sid first started throwing the football around.[6]   Readmore….From Wikipedia,

Menasseh Ben Israel

From Wikipedia

Menasseh ben Israel 1642.jpgManoel Dias Soeiro (1604 – November 20, 1657), better known by his Hebrew name Menasseh ben Israel (מנשה בן ישראל), also,Menasheh ben Yossef ben Yisrael, also known with the Hebrew acronym, MB”Y, was a Portuguese rabbi, kabbalist, writer, diplomat, printer and publisher, founder of the first Hebrew printing press (named Emeth Meerets Titsma`h) in Amsterdam in 1626.

Menasseh was born on Madeira Island in 1604, with the name Manoel Dias Soeiro, a year after his parents had left mainlandPortugal because of the Inquisition. The family moved to the Netherlands in 1610. The Netherlands was in the middle of a process of religious revolt against Catholic Spanish rule throughout the Eighty Years’ War (1568–1648). The family’s arrival in 1610 was during the truce mediated by France and England at The Hague.

Menasseh rose to eminence not only as a rabbi and an author, but also as a printer. He established the first Hebrew press in Holland. One of his earliest works, El Conciliador, published in 1632,[2] won immediate reputation; it was an attempt to reconcile apparent discrepancies in various parts of the Hebrew Bible. Among his correspondents were Gerhard Johann Vossius, Hugo Grotius, António Vieira and Pierre Daniel Huet. In 1638, he decided to settle in Brazil, as he still found it difficult to provide for his wife and family in Amsterdam. He may have visited the Dutch colony’s capital of Recife, but did not move there. One of the reasons his financial situation improved in Amsterdam was the arrival of two Portuguese Jewish entrepreneurs, the brothers Abraham and Isaac Pereyra. They hired Rabbi Manasseh to direct a small college or academy (a yeshibah in Spanish-Portuguese parlance of the time) they had founded in the city.[3] <<<  From Wikipedia

Sherwood Schwartz

From Wikipedia

Sherwood Schwartz Star Ceremony.jpgSherwood Charles Schwartz (November 14, 1916 – July 12, 2011) was an American television producer. He worked on radioshows in the 1940s, and created the television series Gilligan’s Island on CBS and The Brady Bunch on ABC. On March 7, 2008, Schwartz, at the time still active in his 90s, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.[1] That same year, Schwartz was also inducted into the Television Hall of Fame.[2]

Schwartz’s entertainment career came “by accident”. He relocated from New York to southern California to pursue a Master of Science degree in Biology. In need of employment, he began writing jokes for Bob Hope’s radio program, for which Schwartz’s brother, Al Schwartz, worked. Schwartz recalled that Hope “liked my jokes, used them on his show and got big laughs. Then he asked me to join his writing staff. I was faced with a major decision—writing comedy or starving to death while I cured those diseases. I made a quick career change.”[3]

He went on to write for Ozzie Nelson’s The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet and other radio shows. Schwartz was a writer on theArmed Forces Radio Network before he got his break in television. He went on to create and produce Gilligan’s Island and The Brady Bunch. He wrote the theme song for three of his shows: Gilligan’s Island (co-wrote), It’s About Time, and The Brady Bunch.

Syndication turned his two major successes into TV institutions with cultural relevance. He made them icons, and as a result he became a television icon.[4]  From Wikipedia <<<<<<<<

Abayudaya Jews


From Wikipedia

The Abayudaya (Abayudaya is Luganda for “People of Judah”,[1][2] analogous to Children of Israel) are a Baganda community in eastern Uganda near the town of Mbale who practice Judaism. They are devout in their practice, keeping their version of kashrut, and observing Shabbat. There are several different villages where the Ugandan Jews live. Most of these are recognized by the Reform and Conservative movements of Judaism. However, the villagers of Putti are still seeking an Orthodox conversion and practice strict Rabbinical Judaism.[3]


Their population is estimated at approximately 2,000 having once been as large as 3,000 (prior to the persecutions of the Idi Aminregime, during which their numbers dwindled to around 300); like their neighbors, they are subsistence farmers. Most Abayudaya are of Bagwere origin, except for those from Namutumba who are Basoga. They speak Luganda, Lusoga or Lugwere, although some have learned Hebrew as well

File:Abayudaya synagogue nabugoye 1.jpg

The sect owes its origin to Muganda military leader Semei Kakungulu. Originally, Kakungulu was converted to Christianity by British missionaries around 1880. He believed that the British would allow him to be king of the territories, Bukedi and Bugisu, that he had conquered in battle for them. However, when the British limited his territory to a significantly smaller size and refused to recognize him as king as they had promised, Kakungulu began to distance himself from them. In 1913, he became a member of the Bamalaki sect following a belief system that combined elements of Christianity, Judaism and, most notably, a refusal to use western medicine (based on a few sentences taken from the Old Testament). This led to conflict with the British when the Bamalaki refused to vaccinate their cattle. However, upon further study of the Bible, Kakungulu came to believe that the customs and laws described in the first 5 books of Moses (Torah) were really true. When, in 1919, Kakungulu insisted on circumcision as is prescribed in the Old Testament,the Bamalaki refused and told him that, if he practised circumcision, he would be like the Jews. Kakungulu responded, “Then, I am a Jew!” He circumcised his sons and himself and declared that his community was Jewish. According to Henry Lubega,[4] “he fled to the foot of Mt. Elgon and settled in a place called Gangama where he started a separatist sect known as Kibina Kya Bayudaya Absesiga Katonda (the Community of Jews who trust in the Lord).” The British were infuriated by this action and they effectively severed all ties with him and his followers. <<<<<<<<<  From Wikipedia

Jacob Abraham Camille Pissarro was born on 10 July 1830 on the island of St. Thomas to Frederick and Rachel Manzano de Pissarro.[3][4] His father, who was of Portuguese Jewish descent, held French nationality and his mother was native Creole.[2] His father was a merchant who came to the island from France to deal with the business affairs of a deceased uncle, and married his widow. The marriage, however, caused a stir within St. Thomas’ small Jewish community, either because Rachel was outside the faith or because she was previously married to Frederick’s uncle, and in subsequent years his four children were forced to attend the all-black primary school.[5] Upon his death, his will specified that his estate be split equally between the synagogue and St. Thomas’ Protestant church.[6]      ………..From Wikipedia

‫tikkun chatzot and learn Torah while Midnight in kollel chatzos

Every night– yes, every single night – dozens of Torah scholars learn Torah for your benefit.
Every night, from midnight until morning, dozens of Torah scholars study Torah the sake of Am Yisrael. They’re tired; they’ve worked hard all day. But they courageously fight off sleep to avail themselves of these special hours.

King David studied Torah at midnight because he understood that then, when light and darkness are intertwined, the Gates of Heaven are flung open to accept our prayers. “Blessed is the portion of those who, at that special time, arise from their sleep to engage in Torah.” It’s an “et ratzon” (an opportune moment), when Hashem’s attribute of mercy rules the world. And it’s then, when Hashem is longing for our prayers and midnight learning, that over sixty Torah scholars leave the comfort of their homes to mourn the destruction, learn Torah and pray for their learning partners and for the entire Jewish nation.

“Whoever arises at Chatzos, Hashem Himself heeds that person’s prayers, and all his requests and blessings are fulfilled” (Zohar).

Their prayers are answered!We have seen yeshuos! People ask these Torah scholars to pray for them – for children, for health, for parnassah, to find a mate, and their prayers are fulfilled, a living testimony to the blessing that is drawn from Torah learning at midnight.

A sepia photograph shows three elderly Jewish men sporting beards and holding open books, posing for the camera. Against a backdrop of leafy vegetation, the man in the centre sits, wearing a black hat and caftan, while the two others stand, wearing lighter clothes and turbans.A kolel or kollel (Hebrew: כולל‎, pl. כוללים, kollelim, a “gathering” or “collection” [of scholars]) is an institute for full-time, advancedstudy of the Talmud and rabbinic literature. Like a yeshiva, a kolel features shiurim (lectures) and learning sedarim (learning sessions); unlike a yeshiva, the student body of a kolel are all married men. Kolels generally pay a regular monthly stipend to their members.

Beginning in the last third of the 20th century, the kolel concept expanded with the introduction of community kolels. Community kolels are a kiruv (Jewish outreach) tool which aims to increase Jewish knowledge and identity as a hedge against assimilation.[1]Community kolels are typically composed of a minyan of students who engage in advanced Torah study with their own rabbis andshiurim for part of the day, and then conduct one-on-one learning sessions, free classes, and holiday activities for the Jewish community at large during the other part of the day.

Originally, the word was used in the sense of “community”. Each new group of Jews, who came from various European countries to settle in Palestine, established their own separate community with their own support system. Each community was referred to as the kolel of … to identify the specific community of the Old Yishuv. The overwhelming majority of these Jews were scholars, who left their homelands to devote themselves to study Torah and serve God for the rest of their lives. The kolel was the umbrella organization for all their needs.

The first examples were Kolel Perushim who were the students of the Vilna Gaon, and who established the first Ashkenasi Jewish settlement in Jerusalem, Colel Chabad for the Russian Hasidim. The Polish Jews were divided into many Kollelim; Kollel Polen(Poland) headed by Rabbi Chaim Elozor Wax; Kollel Vilna Zamutch was under different leadership; and the Galicians were incorporated under Kolel Chibas Yerushalayim. The last initially included the entire Austro-Hungarian Kingdom, but as each subparty looking for more courteous distribution, the Hungarians separated into Kolel Shomrei HaChomos.   <<<<<<<<<<     From Wikipedia

His full formal Hebrew name was Elkanah ben Shimon.[2]

Reles attended school through the 8th grade. After leaving school, he began hanging out at pool rooms and candy stores in and around Brownsville. He soon teamed up with two of his childhood friends, Martin Goldstein and Harry Strauss, who eventually rose to power with him in the group conventionally known as Murder Inc.

Profile: Howard Fast

“Howard had a tremendous interest in America—and a tremendous love for this country,” says Mimi Fast, wife of the late novelist Howard Fast.

Fast (1914–2003) was one of the most prolific American writers of the twentieth century. He was a bestselling author of more than eighty works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and screenplays. In 1950, his refusal to provide the United States Congress with a list of possible Communist associates earned him a three-month prison sentence. During his incarceration, Fast wrote one of his best-known novels, Spartacus (1951).

Throughout his long career, Fast matched his commitment to championing social justice in his writing with a deft, lively storytelling style. For the first time, sixty-three of his works will be available as ebooks. Watch Mimi Fast, son and author Jonathan Fast, and author and daughter-in-law Erica Jong speak about his legacy.

Victor Luitpold Berger (February 28, 1860 – August 7, 1929) was a founding member of the Social Democratic Party of Americaand its successor, the Socialist Party of America. Berger was an important and influential socialist journalist who helped establish the so-called Sewer Socialist movement. In 1910, he became the first Socialist elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1919, he was convicted of violating the Espionage Act for his anti-militarist views and as a result was denied the seat to which he had been twice elected in the House of Representatives. The verdict was eventually overturned by the Supreme Court, and he was elected to three successive terms in the 1920s.

Victor Berger was born to a Jewish family[1][2] in Nieder-Rehbach, Austria-Hungary (today in Romania) on February 28, 1860,[3] He attended the Gymnasium at Leutschau (today in Slovakia) and the universities at Budapest and Vienna.[4] He emigrated to theUnited States in 1878 with his parents,[3][5] settling near Bridgeport, Connecticut.[6] Berger’s wife, Meta Schlichting, later claimed that Berger had left Austria-Hungary to avoid conscription into the military.[7]

After arriving in the United States, Berger settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1881, which was home to a large population of German-Americans and had a very active labor movement. Berger joined the Socialist Labor Party (then headed by Daniel de Leon), and became the editor of two newspapers – the Social Democratic Herald and the Milwaukee Leader.[8] Berger taught German in the public school system, where his father-in-law was the school commissioner. His wife, Meta, was an active socialist organizer in Milwaukee, and was for many years a member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents.[9] …………..  From Wikipedia,

Kristallnacht: The November 1938 Pogroms Cantor Israel Karmon Es Brent (Mordechai Gebirtig)

On November 9–10, 1938, the Nazis staged vicious pogroms—state sanctioned, anti-Jewish riots—against the Jewish community of Germany. These came to be known as Kristallnacht (now commonly translated as “Night of Broken Glass”), a reference to the untold numbers of broken windows of synagogues, Jewish-owned stores, community centers, and homes plundered and destroyed during the pogroms. Encouraged by the Nazi regime, the rioters burned or destroyed 267 synagogues, vandalized or looted 7,500 Jewish businesses, and killed at least 91 Jewish people. They also damaged many Jewish cemeteries, hospitals, schools, and homes as police and fire brigades stood aside. Kristallnacht was a turning point in history. The pogroms marked an intensification of Nazi anti-Jewish policy that would culminate in the Holocaust—the systematic, state-sponsored murder of Jews.

The Katowice Conference (also known as the Kattowitz Conference)[1] was a convention of Hovevei Zion groups from various countries held in Katowice, Germany in November, 1884. It was assembled to address the need of a Jewish state and to develop a plan for the creation of a Jewish state.

The Hovevei Zion movement began in Russia and Romania and slowly spread out to the rest of the Jewish world. Important early members were: Chaim Weizmann, Ahad Ha’am, Menachem Ussishkin, Israel Zangwill, and Leo Motzin. The Hovevei Zion organizations were usually small and independent. In 1882, Leon (Yehuda Leib) Pinsker, influenced by a string of pogroms in his town of Odessa, anonymously published “Auto-Emanzipation. Ein Mahnruf an seine Stammesgenossen. Von einem russischen Juden” (Self-Emancipation. A Warning Addressed to His Brethren. By a Russian Jew) Pinsker outlined his belief that the root cause of anti-Semitism was that the Jews were a people without a nation of their own. He called on Jews to organize themselves for the establishment of a Jewish homeland.  From Wikipedia

On the other hand, it was impossible to ignore the amount of people fascinated by him, and the amount of people who’s dreams he fulfilled – Part One

Shabtai Kalmanovich

From Wikipedia

Shabtai Kalmanovich (Hebrew: שבתאי קלמנוביץ’‎, Lithuanian: Šabtajus Kalmanovičius, Russian: Шабтай Генрихович Калманович; 18 December 1947 – November 2, 2009), alternatively spelled Shabtai Kalmanovic,[1] was a KGB spy, who later became known in Russia as a successful businessman, concert promoter and basketball sponsor.

Kalmanovich was born in Kaunas, Soviet Lithuania to an impoverished Jewish family in 1947. His mother was a Holocaust survivor who had been sheltered by a Lithuanian family after escaping Nazi captivity in the Ninth Fort.[2][3] He studied chemical engineering, and joined the Soviet Army soon after his studies. When his commanders learned that his family was planning to emigrate to Israel, he was summoned to the Jewish administration of the KGB, and was recruited as a spy in exchange for expediting the emigration procedures for himself and his family. In 1971, he emigrated to Israel with his family after they received exit permits.[4]

In Israel, Kalmanovich became active in the Israeli Labor Party, worked in the Government Press Office, and as a parliamentary aide in the Knesset.[5] His government positions gave him access to information about Nativ, an Israeli liaison organization that maintained contact with Jews in the Soviet Union and other Eastern bloc countries. Kalmanovich had been instructed to infiltrate Nativ by his KGB case officer and pass intelligence on its activities.[4] According to his indictment, Kalmanovich handed over information to the Soviets over a period of 17 years. Kalmanovich became a businessman after the KGB funded investments for him in Israel. He became wealthy by exploiting cheap labor in South African bantustan of Bophuthatswana, in conjunction with other Israeli, South African and Taiwanese businessmen. He lived and worked for a time in Sierra Leone, where he made a fortune in the diamond trade and worked as a representative for Israel.[6]From Wikipedia

This Day in Jewish History / Joseph Pulitzer, wanna-be soldier and little man’s champion, dies

His father, Fulop Pulitzer, was a prosperous, Jewish grain merchant whose family had emigrated from the town of Pullitz, in Moravia, in the late 18th …

Joseph Pulitzer

From Wikipedia Joseph Pulitzer (Listeni/ˈpʊlɨtsər/ puul-it-sər,[2] [ˈpulitzɛr] in original Hungarian; April 10, 1847 – October 29, 1911), born Pulitzer József, was a Hungarian-American Jewish newspaper publisher of the St. Louis Post Dispatch and the New York World. Pulitzer introduced the techniques of “new journalism” to the newspapers he acquired in the 1880s. He became a leading national figure in the Democratic Party and was elected Congressman from New York. He crusaded against big business and corruption, and helped keep the Statue of Liberty in New York.

In the 1890s the fierce competition between his World and William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal caused both to use yellow journalism for wider appeal; it opened the way to mass-circulation newspapers that depended on advertising revenue and appealed to readers with multiple forms of news, entertainment and advertising.

Today, he is best known for the Pulitzer Prizes, which were established in 1917 by money he bequeathed to Columbia University to recognize artistic and journalistic achievements. The prizes are given annually to award achievements in journalism and photography, as well as literature and history, poetry, music and drama. Pulitzer founded the Columbia School of Journalism by his philanthropic bequest; it opened in 1912. From Wikipedia

This Day in Jewish History / Jack Benny takes act to TV, grumbling all the way

Lousy student and supposedly a worse violinist, he was also terrible at business but discovered a rare talent for ad-libbing. By David B. Green | Oct. 28 …

Popular Jack Benny Videos

Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky; February 14, 1894 – December 26, 1974) was an American comedian, vaudevillian, radio, television, and film actor, and violinist. Recognized as a leading American entertainer of the 20th century, Benny portrayed his character as a miser, playing his violin badly. In character, he would be 39 years of age, regardless of his actual age.

Benny was known for comic timing, and the ability to create laughter with a pregnant pause or a single expression, such as his signature exasperated “Well!” His radio and television programs, popular from the 1930s to the 1970s, were a major influence on the sitcom genre.

Benny was born Benjamin Kubelsky February 14, 1894, in Chicago, Illinois, and grew up in neighboring Waukegan, Illinois.[2]He was the son of Meyer Kubelsky and Emma Sachs Kubelsky. Meyer was a Jewish saloon owner, later, a haberdasher, who had emigrated to America from Poland.[3][4][5][6][7] Emma had emigrated from Lithuania. Benny began studying violin, an instrument that became his trademark, at the age of six, his parents hoping for him to become a professional violinist. He loved the instrument, but hated practice. His teacher was Otto Graham Sr., a neighbor and father of Otto Graham of NFL fame. At 14, Benny was playing in dance bands and his high school orchestra. He was a dreamer and poor at his studies, and was ultimately expelled from high school. He did poorly in business school later, as well as attempts to join his father’s business. At age 17, he began playing the violin in local vaudeville theaters for $7.50 a week.[8] He was joined by Ned Miller, a young composer and singer, on the circuit.[9]   From Wikipedia

Overlooked Achievement: The Life of Lise Meitner

Other than Marie Curie, little is known about women scientists. Ruth Lewin Sime, author of Lise Meitner: A Life in Physics, discusses the life of Meitner, a pioneer in nuclear physics and the epic story behind her co-discovery of nuclear fission.

Lise Meitner

From Wikipedia

Lise Meitner (1878-1968), lecturing at Catholic University, Washington, D.C., 1946.jpgLise Meitner (7 November 1878 – 27 October 1968) was an Austrian physicist who worked on radioactivity and nuclear physics.[3]Meitner was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded theNobel Prize.[4] Meitner is often mentioned as one of the most glaring examples of women’s scientific achievement overlooked by the Nobel committee.[5][6][7] A 1997 Physics Today study concluded that Meitner’s omission was “a rare instance in which personal negative opinions apparently led to the exclusion of a deserving scientist” from the Nobel.[8] Element 109, meitnerium, is named in her honour.Meitner was born into a Jewish family as the third of eight children in Vienna, 2nd district (Leopoldstadt). Her father, Philipp Meitner,[12] was one of the first Jewish lawyers in Austria.[7] She was born on 7 November 1878. She shortened her name from Elise to Lise.[13] The birth register ofVienna’s Jewish community lists Meitner as being born on 17 November 1878, but all other documents list it as 7 November, which is what she used.[1] As an adult, she converted to Christianity, following Lutheranism,[1][14] and was baptized in 1908.

In 1922, while living in Germany he obtained a certificate claiming that he had converted to Islam in the presence of the imam of the Turkish embassy in Berlin.[2] He created for himself a niche in the competitive European literary world by writing about topics that Westerners, in general, knew little about – the Caucasus,[3] Russian Empire,[4] Bolshevik Revolution[5] newly discovered oil,[6] and Islam.[7] He wrote under the name of Essad Bey in German   …….    Wikipedia

This Day in Jewish History / A violinist who survived Stalin’s purges dies on tour

On October 24, 1974, the great Russian-Jewish violinist David Oistrakh died at the age of 66. Oistrakh is recognized as one of the 20th century’s finest 

David Oistrakh

From Wikipedia

David Fyodorovich Oistrakh[nb 1] (September 30 [O.S. September 17] 1908 – October 24, 1974) was a renowned Soviet classicalviolinist.

Oistrakh collaborated with major orchestras and musicians from many parts of the world, including the Soviet Union, Europe, and the United States, and was the dedicatee of numerous violin works, including both of Dmitri Shostakovich’s violin concerti, and the violin concerto by Aram Khachaturian. He is considered one of the preeminent violinists of the 20th century.

He was born in the cosmopolitan city of Odessa in the Russian Empire (now Ukraine) into a Jewish family of merchants of the second guild. His father was David Kolker and his mother was Isabella Beyle (née Stepanovsky), who later on married Fishl Oistrakh.[1] At the age of five, young Oistrakh began his studies of violin and viola as a pupil of Pyotr Stolyarsky. In his studies with Stolyarsky he made very good friends with Daniel Shindarov, with whom he performed numerous times around the world, even after becoming famous, for students at Stolyarsky School of Music. He would eventually come to predominantly perform on violin. From Wikipedia

Steinberg’s satiric, literate and defiantly Jewish material landed him on Nixon’s enemies list and on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show couch more than 100 times (second only to Bob Hope). Today, Steinberg is a sought after comedy director.

‫tikkun chatzot and learn Torah while Midnight in kollel chatzos

Every night– yes, every single night – dozens of Torah scholars learn Torah for your benefit.
Every night, from midnight until morning, dozens of Torah scholars study Torah the sake of Am Yisrael. They’re tired; they’ve worked hard all day. But they courageously fight off sleep to avail themselves of these special hours.

King David studied Torah at midnight because he understood that then, when light and darkness are intertwined, the Gates of Heaven are flung open to accept our prayers. “Blessed is the portion of those who, at that special time, arise from their sleep to engage in Torah.” It’s an “et ratzon” (an opportune moment), when Hashem’s attribute of mercy rules the world. And it’s then, when Hashem is longing for our prayers and midnight learning, that over sixty Torah scholars leave the comfort of their homes to mourn the destruction, learn Torah and pray for their learning partners and for the entire Jewish nation.

“Whoever arises at Chatzos, Hashem Himself heeds that person’s prayers, and all his requests and blessings are fulfilled” (Zohar).

Their prayers are answered!We have seen yeshuos! People ask these Torah scholars to pray for them – for children, for health, for parnassah, to find a mate, and their prayers are fulfilled, a living testimony to the blessing that is drawn from Torah learning at midnight.

“He who cannot rise at midnight should support one who does rise, and he will have a share in the Torah learning”
