Tu Bishvat

From Wikipedia

Tu Bishvat (Hebrew: טו בשבט‎) is a Jewish holiday occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat (in 2014, Tu Bishvat began at sunset on 15 January and ended at nightfall on 16 January). It is also called “Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot” (Hebrew: ראש השנה לאילנות‎), literally “New Year of the Trees.” In contemporary Israel, the day is celebrated as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration. Read More Button--orange

Dining out with Italian Jews: quality kosher cuisine in Rome’s historic Jewish Ghetto

01.04.2014
One thing that strikes you when you walk into the Jewish Ghetto in Rome is the enormous amount of restaurants. Kosher restaurants that serve the so-called Giudaico Romanescho, the Jewish-Roman cuisine. Restaurants where it’s very hard to get a table. So they must be very good. But what is it, that makes this Jewish Roman cuisine so special?

Orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Brooklyn

http://israelvideosfeed.comBorough Park (usually spelled Boro Park by its residents), is a neighborhood in the southwestern part of the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City in the United States; Borough Park covers an extensive grid of streets between Bay Ridge and Prospect Park. Borough Park had its beginnings in a few streets of cottages called “Blythebourne” erected in 1887 by the speculative builder, Electus B. Litchfield.Another developer, William Reynolds, built more speculative housing in the area, which was served by a steam railroad, the Brooklyn, Bath and Coney Island West End Line.
Borough Park is home to one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities outside of Israel, with one of the largest concentrations of Jews in the United States, and Orthodox traditions rivaling many insular communities. Since the average number of children in Hasidic and Hareidi families is 6.72, Borough Park is experiencing sharp growth. It is an economically diverse area, with rich, working class and poor people living side-by-side and going to the same schools and synagogues.
Its heart lies between 9th and 18th Avenues and 40th and 61st Streets. Borough Park is patrolled by the NYPD’s 66th [6] Precinct and by Boro Park Shomrim Citizen Safety Patrol

Emanuel Schlechter

From Wikipedia,

Emanuel Schlechter (pseudonyms Eman, Olgierd Lech) (Emanuel Szlechter) (26 March 1906 – 1943) was born and died in Lwów. He was a Polish-Jewish artist, lyricist, screenwriter, librettist, writer, satirist, translator, composer and director.

His father was an owner of restaurant in Lwów.[1] The family name of his mother was Brecher.[1] When Szlechter was 14 years old, he joined to Małopolskie Oddziały Armii Ochotniczej (Lesser Poland’s Volunteer Army) and during summer 1920 he participated in defense of Lwów.[1]

After passing his matura exam around 1923[1] he studied law at the Jan Kazimierz University in Lwów and worked briefly in a law firm. His earliest lyrics were written for Leon Borunski’s songs, staged at the Morskie Oko theater’s Parada gwiazd show in 1930, performed and recorded by Syrena Rekord star Kazimierz Krukowski.[2]

Aaron Lebedeff A Chazindel In America

Aaron Lebedeff (1873–1960)
In the years when the Yiddish theatre flourished in the United Stales one of the most cheerful and original personalities in Yiddish musical comedy was Aaron Lebedeff, Gifted with a lyric voice, an engaging stage presence, a unique zest for improvisation, clowning and dancing, he undoubtedly had the longest career as a juvenile song-and-dance man in the history of the New York theatre, Yiddish or English. In 1936, Variety cited him, at the age of sixty-two, as “the world’s oldest juvenile”; in 1955, at eighty-two, he was still appearing in musicals in what then remained of the Yiddish theatre.

The ever-young Aaron Lebedeff was born in Homel, White Russia in 1873. As a boy he sang in the local choir, but since he showed no interest in study, his parents, who kept a clothing shop, early apprenticed him to learn a trade. The boy ran away from home to join a Russian theatre troupe touring Bohroisk. Minsk and other cities. After hard times disbanded the group, he returned to Homel, where he opened a dancing school and dabbled in amateur Yiddish theatricals. When one of the early professional Yiddish troupes, headed by Lazar Bernstein, passed through the town, Lebedeff begged for a job with the company and promptly got one – combination chorus boy, porter, wardrobe assistant and prompter. It was not long before he became a character actor, making his debut as the Pipkincr Rav in Shomer’s Baal Tshuva. Then he moved over to operetta, which gave wider scope to his varied talents.

After many years on the road with travelling shows, he finally became a star in Warsaw in 1912-13, where he was known as Der Litvisher Komiker. This was the start of a lifetime career in the theatre, interrupted only by a brief period of military service in Kerensky’s Revolutionary Army in Harbin, Manchuria. Eventually he gathered all his savings together to buy his way out of the army, and began a long trek to the United Stales by way of Siberia. Manchuria, China and Japan. All in all, he spent a year barnstorming in the Orient and in that time managed to master one dialect of Chinese.
Whcn he finally arrived in New York in 1920. he scored an immediate personal success at Boris Thomashcfsky’s storied National Theatre in a play called Liovka Molodez. Thus began sixteen years on Second Avenue, during which he played a full season each year, never missing even a week. Ever gay, in his straw hat and faultlessly tailored clothes, he seemed to many the Maurice Chevalier of the Yiddish stage. He became famous for roles like The Rumanian Litvak, and though after awhile his vehicles assumed a typed character, the audiences loved him. The New York Times in a review in October 1932 commented that he delighted the public in roles in which he was invariably “an ingratiating provincial who is always the victim of misfortune in the first act, only to shine forth resplendent with simoleons and a slick sennet in the closing act.”

At sixty-one, when he was stilt playing romantic leads (albeit wearing a hat to hide a receding hair fine), he divulged to a reporter for the New York American his formula for perpetual youth: “Dress well, eat and drink what you like, and remain constantly in love.” Though he was surrounded by adoring females wherever he went, he remained happily married to the actress Vera Lebedeff (Rebecca Shehtman).

Even the rise of talking pictures and the decline of the Yiddish stage dimmed his luster only slightly, for he went on to star m Yiddish vaudeville at the National and Clinton Theatres, where Yiddish talkies and eight live acts shared the bill. To list all the ephemeral Yiddish plays in which he appeared is almost impossible. Among his notable musicals were My Malkele (1937) and Bublitchki (1938) in which he co-starred with Molly Picon, Yankele Litvak, Yoshke Chvat, Motke from Slobodke, Money Talks, (with Michael Michaclesko, 1952), The Magic Melody (1953) and My Weekend Bride (1955). In 1953 he was one of the famous Yiddish stars honored at a special anniversary performance for Israel Bonds at the National Theatre (and the only one, true to his usual form, who was called back for several encores).

It is interesting to note that Lebedeff wrote many of his Yiddish and English lyrics himself. Most of the lines virtually defy translation, for they are highly idiomatic, with a humor that is difficult to render into English. Ail the songs breathe nostalgia and are magically evocative of the Russian-Rumanian milieu and the immigrant world in New York. The allusions to food and drink are legion; the homesickness is for the village life of the vanished prewar world. For sheer exuberance and uninhibited merry-making, few performers can match Aaron Lebedeff at his best.

Surrounded by the mountains and forests of the green Upper Galilee, Safed is world-famous for its winding alleyways and old majestic synagogues, its Artists Quarter and its musicians, its history of kabbalah and spirituality.
“But we’re not disconnected from the rest of the world at all,” says Budenstein. “This is a place where people actually come to connect and I would invite you to come and connect yourselves.”

From Wikipedia

Marc Zakharovich Chagall (/ʃəˈɡɑːl/ shə-gahl;[3][nb 1] 6 July [O.S. 24 June] 1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian-French artist.[1]:21 Art critic Robert Hughes referred to Chagall as “the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century” (though Chagall saw his work as “not the dream of one people but of all humanity”). An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.

According to art historian Michael J. Lewis, Chagall was considered to be “the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists”. For decades, he “had also been respected as the world’s preeminent Jewish artist”. Using the medium of stained glass, he produced windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, windows for the UN, and the Jerusalem Windows in Israel. He also did large-scale paintings, including part of the ceiling of the Paris Opéra. Read More Button--orange  From Wikipedia Photo by Wikipedia

Bess Myerson (July 16, 1924 – December 14, 2014) was an American model, television actress, politician, and civil rights activist who was crowned Miss America in 1945.

At the time of her death, Myerson was the only Jewish Miss America. Myerson won the Miss America beauty pageant at a time when World War II had just ended. Myerson’s winning the title of Miss America took on heightened significance in light of newly emerging information about the Holocaust. In her obituary from The New York Times, it was noted that she was seen as “a hero to the Jewish community.”[1][2] Myerson biographer Susan Dworkin said that “In the Jewish community, she was the most famous pretty girl sinceQueen Esther.”[1]  Read More Button--orangeFrom Wikipedia  Photo by Wikipedia

Minnie (c. 1923 [1]– October 31, 1976) and Clara Bagelman (October 17, 1920 – November 22, 2014),[2] best known under the stage names Merna and Claire Barry, were popular American Klezmer and jazz entertainers from the 1940s to the early 1970s.

Minnie and Clara were born in the Bronx, New York to Ashkenazi Jewish parents, Herman and Ester, from Russia and Austria, respectively, and two younger sisters, Celia and Julia. When Minnie and Clara decided to entertain by singing in Yiddish, as The Bagelman Sisters, their father told them they would need to do it in the manner of the Old World and not with American accents.[3]Read More Button--orangePhoto by Wikipedia

Hava Nagila

From Wikipedia

Hava Nagila” (הבה נגילה Havah Nagilah, “Let us rejoice”) is an Israeli folk song. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. It was composed in 1920s Palestine at a time when Hebrew was first being revived as a spoken language for the first time in 2,000 years (in other words, since 70 CE, the destruction of the Second Temple). For the first time, Palestinian Jews were being encouraged to speak Hebrew as a common language, instead of Yiddish, Arabic, Ladino, or other regional Jewish languages

Panel Discussion

Jonathan Brent, Executive Director, YIVO
Jeremy Dauber, Columbia University
Adam Kirsch, The New Republic (Moderator)

Novelist, playwright, journalist, essayist, and editor, Sholem Aleichem was one of the founding giants of modern Yiddish literature. The creator of a pantheon of extraordinary characters, his literature provided readers with a window into the world of Eastern European Jews as they confronted the forces of modernity that tore through Russia at the end of the 19th century. But just as compelling as the fictional lives of his characters, was Sholem Aleichem’s own life story. Born Sholem Rabinovitch in Ukraine in 1859, he endured an impoverished childhood, married into wealth, and then lost it all through bad luck and worse business sense. Turning to his pen to support himself, he switched from writing in Russian and Hebrew to Yiddish in order to create a living body of literature for the Jewish masses. Jonathan Brent, Executive Director at YIVO, Jeremy Dauber, author of the recently published book, ‘The Worlds of Sholem Aleichem: The Remarkable Life and Afterlife of the Man Who Created Tevye’, and Adam Kirsch joined each other on stage for a lively discussion about the fascinating life and work of the “Jewish Mark Twain.”

Jewish Philosophy Matters: The Philosophical Mind of The Talmud

20.01.2015
Jewish Philosophy Matters with Professor Howard Lupovitch
Session1: The Philosophical Mind of The Talmud
Series info:
What are the concepts and dilemmas that have engaged Jewish philosophers through the centuries? Which of these are still relevant today? In this series, we will explore that and other related questions.

Session Info:
Though not a work of philosophy, the Talmud is full of philosophical ideas, questions, and answers about the meaning of existence (“Why are we here? Why are we Jewish? Where are we heading?”), the relationship between Heaven and Earth, the purpose of Mitzvot, and the path to a moral and ethical life.

Howard N. Lupovitch is Associate Professor of History and the director of Cohn-Haddow Center for Judaic Studies at Wayne State University.

Jack Mayer Oral History Interview

Oral history interview with Holocaust survivor Jack Mayer. Mayer was born in Speyer, Germany, in 1930 and lived there with his parents and older brother. After Hitler came to power in 1933, German Jews became increasingly restricted, which the Mayer children perceived at their young ages. Gentile friends would no longer play with them, they could not go to the movies, and they had to go to a Jewish school at their synagogue. They already had two uncles in the United States, who began making arrangements to get their relatives out of Germany. Mayer’s father came in early 1937 and started saving money for their visas and travel arrangements, borrowing money from members of the local Jewish community. Mayer and his mother and brother arrived in Ohio in April 1938. Due to his uncles’ foresight, none of their relatives died in the Holocaust. They still faced discrimination in the United States, but not because they were Jewish; people were wary of German immigrants during the war. In this interview, Mayer also discusses his experiences during the March of the Living, which he has done twice.

Ark Shanghai – A History of Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (Part 1)

31.12.2014
From 1933 to 1941, Shanghai became a modern-day “Noah’s Ark” accepting around 30,000 Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust in Europe. In the “Designated Area for Stateless Refugees” in Tilanqiao area of Shanghai, about 20,000 Jewish refugees lived harmoniously with local citizens, overcoming numerous difficulties together. By the time the Second World War ended in 1945, most of the Jewish refugees had survived. Dr. David Kranzler, a noted Holocaust historian, called it the “Miracle of Shanghai” and commented that within the Jewry’s greatest tragedy, i.e. the Holocaust, there shone a few bright lights. Among the brightest of these is the Shanghai haven. In the “Tilanqiao Historic Area”, the original features of the Jewish settlement are still well preserved. They are the only typical historic traces of Jewish refugee life inside China during the Second World War.

Marc Blitzstein – Three-Four dance

Marc Blitzstein – Three-Four dance
Piano: Bennett Lerner

Marc Blitzstein was born in Philadelphia on March 2, 1905, the son of affluent parents. In 1928 his father Sam Blitzstein married Robert Serber’s sister-in-law Madeline Leof. Blitzstein’s musical gifts were apparent at an early age; he had performed a Mozart piano concerto by the time he was seven. He went on to study piano with Alexander Siloti, (a pupil of Tchaikovsky and Liszt), and made his professional concerto debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra in Liszt’s E-flat Piano Concerto when he was 21. His first relationship was in 1924, when he traveled to Europe with conductor Alexander Smallens.
After studying composition at the Curtis Institute of Music, he went to Europe to continue his studies in Berlin with Arnold Schoenberg (with whom he did not get on), and in Pariswith Nadia Boulanger (with whom he did). Despite his later political beliefs, he was, in the early years of his career, a self-proclaimed and unrepentant artistic snob, who firmly believed that true art was only for the intellectual elite. He was vociferous in denouncing composers — in particular Respighi, Ravel, and Kurt Weill — who, he felt, debased their standards to reach a wider public.
His works of this period, mostly pianistic vehicles such as the Piano Sonata (1927) and the Piano Concerto (1931) are typical of the Boulanger-influenced products of American modernism — strongly rhythmic (though not influenced by jazz) and described by himself as “wild, dissonant and percussive.” These early works were far removed from the Schoenberg style.
Although Blitzstein married novelist Eva Goldbeck on March 2, 1933, he was openly gay; they had no children. His mother-in-law was Berlin-born musical star and opera singer Lina Abarbanell. He dedicated a number of works, including Romantic Piece for Orchestra (1930), String Quartet, ‘The Italian’ (1930), the ballet Cain (1930), and the Serenade for String Quartet (1932) to his wife-to-be. She died of anorexia in 1936, and his grief prompted him to throw himself into the work of creating The Cradle Will Rock.[4] He summered at the Pine Brook Country Club located in the countryside near Nichols, Connecticut, which became the summer rehearsal headquarters of the Group Theatre in the 1930s and 1940s.

From Wikipedia,

Marcus Samuel Blitzstein, better known as Marc Blitzstein (March 2, 1905 – January 22, 1964), was an American composer, lyricist, and librettist.[1] He won national attention in 1937 when his pro-union musical The Cradle Will Rock, directed by Orson Welles, was shut down by the Works Progress Administration. He is known for The Cradle Will Rock and for his Off-Broadwaytranslation/adaptation of The Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill. His works also include the opera Regina, an adaptation of Lillian Hellman’s play The Little Foxes; the Broadway musical Juno, based on Seán O’Casey’s play Juno and the Paycock; and No for an Answer.

Nathan Marcus Adler

From Wikipedia

Rabbi Nathan Marcus hakohen Adler (13 January 1803 – 21 January 1890) was the Orthodox Chief Rabbi of the British Empirefrom 1845 until his death, probably the most prominent 19th century rabbi in the English-speaking world.

A kohen by birth, Rabbi Nathan was born in Hanover, in present-day Germany. He was apparently named after the kabbalist Nathan Adler (according to the biography of the latter in the Jewish Encyclopedia). His distant relative Jacob Adler, who made his acquaintance in the winter of 1883–1884, described him as the “highest religious authority not only of London Jews but of allOrthodox Jews throughout the United Kingdom and the Empire.” He subscribed to what was known as the Frankfurter Orthodoxy.

File:Vilna Gaon portrait.gifHistory of the Jews in Lithuania

From Wikipedia,

The history of the Jews in Lithuania spans the period from the 8th century[citation needed] to the present day. There is still a small community in that country, as well as an extensive Lithuanian Jewish diaspora in Israel, the United States and other countries. For more detail, see Lithuanian Jews.

As early as the 8th century Jews lived in parts of the Lithuanian territory[citation needed]. Beginning with that period[citation needed] they conducted trade between Russia, Lithuania, and the Baltic, especially with Danzig, Julin (Vineta or Wollin, in Pomerania), and other cities on the Vistula, Oder, and Elbe.

The origin of the Jews of Lithuania has been the subject of much speculation. It is believed that they were made up of two distinct streams of Jewish immigration. The older and significantly smaller of the two entered the territory that would later become the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from the east. These early immigrants spoke Judeo-Slavic dialects which distinguished them from the later Jewish immigrants who entered the region from the Germanic lands. From Wikipedia,  Photo by Wikipedia   Read More Button--orange

The Jews in Poland-Lithuania and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day

12.03.2014
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 | 7pm
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
Book Talk
Antony Polonsky, Brandeis University
For centuries, Poland and Russia formed the heartland of the Jewish world. Until World War II, this area was home to over forty percent of world Jewry: nearly three and a half million Jews lived in Poland, and nearly three million more lived in the Soviet Union. Although the majority of American and European Jews originate from Eastern Europe, the history of this life and civilization is not well known, or has been reduced to a story of persecution and martyrdom. In his masterful three-volume history, ‘The Jews in Poland and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day’, Polonsky avoids sentimentalism and mythologizing, and provides a comprehensive and detailed account of this great civilization. From the towns and shtetls where Jews lived, to the emergence of Hasidism and the Haskalah movement, to the rise of Jewish urbanization, and Polish-Jewish relations during World War II, Polonsky’s book dispels myths about this culture, while demonstrating the importance of Poland and Russia as a great center of Jewish life.

Winner of the 2011 Kulczycki Book Prize for Polish Studies, and the Pro Historia Polonorum Prize for the best book on the history of Poland published in a foreign language between 2007 and 2011.

Anthony Hecht

From Wikipedia,

Anthony Evan Hecht (January 16, 1923 – October 20, 2004) was an American poet. His work combined a deep interest in form with a passionate desire to confront the horrors of 20th century history, with the Second World War, in which he fought, and the Holocaust being recurrent themes in his work.[1]

Hecht was born in New York City to German-Jewish parents. He was educated at various schools in the city – he was a classmate of Jack Kerouac at Horace Mann School – but showed no great academic ability, something he would later refer to as “conspicuous.” However, as a freshman English student at Bard College in New York he discovered the works of Stevens, Auden, Eliot, and Dylan Thomas.[2] It was at this point that he decided he would become a poet. Hecht’s parents were not happy at his plans and tried to discourage them, even getting family friend Ted Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, to attempt to dissuade him. From Wikipedia,  Read More Button--orange  Photo by Wikipedia

Teller immigrated to the United States in the 1930s, and was an early member of the Manhattan Project charged with developing the first atomic bombs. During this time he made a serious push to develop the first fusion-based weapons as well, but these were deferred until after World War II. After his controversial testimony in the security clearance hearing of his former Los Alamoscolleague J. Robert Oppenheimer, Teller was ostracized by much of the scientific community. He continued to find support from the U.S. government and military research establishment, particularly for his advocacy for nuclear energy development, a strong nuclear arsenal, and a vigorous nuclear testing program. He was a co-founder of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and was both its director and associate director for many years.From WikipediaRead More Button--orange  Photo by Wikipedia

Zukor was born to a Jewish family in Ricse, Hungary, which was then a part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 1889, at the age of 16, he promised Mella Baumoel, a girl almost 4 years older than he, that he would send for her one day and they would be married, and he emigrated to the United States. Like most immigrants, he began modestly. When he first landed in New York, he stayed with his family and worked in an upholstery shop. A friend got him a job as an apprentice at a furrier.

Lili Boniche (Élie Boniche, 1921 – March 6, 2008) was an Algerian singer of Andalusian-Arab music. Boniche was the heir to an erudite, centuries-long tradition of Algerian song and a pillar of Franco-Arab music.

Born into a Sephardic Jewish family in the Casbah area of Algiers, Boniche was a child prodigy who taught himself to play his father’s mandola at the age of seven. Later as an in-demand singer throughout France in the 1940s and during wartime. Boniche incorporated the tango, paso doble and mambo into his repertoire, especially while entertaining the troops. He is known for having sung with Arabic lyrics a number of great Cuban popular songs as part of his regular repertoire. He retired in the 1950s, only to launch a second career in 1990, releasing the album Boniche Dubin 1998, produced by Bill Laswell and fashion doyen Jean Touitou. The album earned him new fans across Europe. This retrospective combining his greatest hits and previously unreleased works not only fills a gap with regard to available recordings, but it pays tribute to an important pioneer of cultural fusion.From WikipediaRead More Button--orange

From Wikipedia,

Haym Salomon (or Solomon; April 7, 1740 – January 6, 1785) was a Jewish American businessman and political financial broker who immigrated to New York from Poland during the period of the American Revolution. He helped convert the French loans into ready cash by selling bills of exchange for Robert Morris, the Superintendent of Finance. In this way he aided the Continental Armyand was possibly the prime financier of the American side during the American Revolutionary War against Great Britain.[1]

Haym Salomon was born in Leszno (Lissa) Poland in 1740 to an Ashkenazi Jewish family descended from Spanish and Portuguese Jews who migrated to the Jewish communities of Poland as a result of the Spanish Inquisition of 1492 and remained there for many generations. Although all Jews in Eastern Europe spoke Yiddish (Judeo-German), some have claimed that because Salomon left Poland while still young, he could not read and write Yiddish. In his youth, he studied Hebrew.[2] During his travels in western Europe, he acquired a knowledge of finance as well as fluency in several other languages, such as German. He returned to Poland in 1770 but left for England two years later in the wake of the Polish partition. In 1775, he immigrated to New York City, where he established himself as a financial broker for merchants engaged in overseas trade.[3][4] Read More Button--orangePhoto by Wikipedia

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. Read More Button--orange

I gave a brief intro on Karaite Judaism to a group of 5th-7th graders from a conservative synagogue. The sound is not great, I was a bit rusty, my shirt collar was sticking out of my coat, but there is some good info here.

A few notes:

(1) I had wanted to encourage these students to take pride in their Jewish tradition, even though it is something difficult to do the right thing as a minority. I don’t think that came across as well as I had wanted;

(2) I slipped up at one point and stated that the reason Karaites pray on rugs is likely due to the Rabbinic prohibition of prostrating on “concrete.” I should have said “stone,” as I did elsewhere during the presentation; and

(3) When discussing the differences between Karaite and Rabbanite dietary laws, I was asked why shawarma is generally not permissible for Karaites. I should have just said that it usually seasoned with a particular type of fat that is specifically prohibited in the Torah. Instead I grossed the kids out by telling them where the fat comes from.

Rabbi Meir

From Wikipedia,

Rabbi Meir or Rabbi Meir Baal HaNes (Rabbi Meir the miracle maker) was a Jewish sage who lived in the time of theMishna. He was considered one of the greatest of the Tannaim of the third generation (139-163). According to the Talmud, his father was a descendant of the Roman Emperor Nero who had converted to Judaism. His wife Bruriah is one of the few women cited in the Gemara. He is the third most frequently mentioned sage in the Mishnah.[1]

In the Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Gittin p. 4a, it says that all anonymous Mishnas are attributed to Rabbi Meir. This rule was required because, following an unsuccessful attempt to force the resignation of the head of the Sanhedrin, Rabbi Meir’s opinions were noted, but not in his name, rather as “Others say…”.[2]

“Meir” may have been a sobriquet. Rabbi Meir’s real name is thought to have been Nahori or Misha. The name Meir, meaning “Illuminator,” was given to him because he enlightened the eyes of scholars and students in Torah study.[3]

Frederick II (26 December 1194 – 13 December 1250), was one of the most powerful Holy Roman Emperors of the Middle Ages and head of the House of Hohenstaufen. His political and cultural ambitions, based in Sicily and stretching through Italy to Germany, and even to Jerusalem, were enormous; however, his enemies, especially the popes, prevailed, and his dynasty collapsed soon after his death. Historians have searched for superlatives to describe him, as in the case of Professor Donald Detwiler, who wrote:  From Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

Kristallnacht in the City of Fulda

Arnold Goldschmidt was born in Fulda, Germany, in 1922. Arrested during Kristallnacht, he was deported to Buchenwald concentration camp, where he was subjected to a brutal regime of forced labor and beatings. Arnold was eventually released and returned to his hometown of Fulda. He was later sent on a children’s transport to Holland, where he lived in different children’s homes. Immigrating to the United States, he later enlisted in the US Army. Arnold Goldschmidt immigrated to Israel in 1966.

File:Pauline M. Newman.jpgPauline Newman (labor activist)

From Wikipedia,

Pauline M. Newman (October 18, 1887 – April 8, 1986) was an American labor activist. She is best remembered as the first female general organizer of the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) and for six decades of work as the education director of the ILGWU Health Center.

Pauline M. Newman was born in Kaunas, in present-day Lithuania, in the early 1890s. She was the youngest of four children. Her father was a teacher and her mother sold produce in the local market. [1]

Newman fought for her early education. The local public school refused Jews, and Jewish schools refused women. She convinced her father to let her sit in on his classes. She learned to read and write in Hebrew and Yiddish. She also challenged the custom of dividing the congregation along gender lines. [2] Following the death of her father, Newman, her mother and sisters moved to New York City where her older brother had settled. At age nine, Newman went to work in a brush factory. At 11 she took a job at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory.[3] Disturbed by the miserable conditions, Newman was drawn to the Socialist Party through the popular Yiddish newspaper the Jewish Daily Forward.[2] At age fifteen, she joined a Socialist Literary Society, and organized after-work study groups at the Triangle factory. These became the basis for the women’s unions she would soon organize.[2]From Wikipedia Read More Button--orange

Richard Newman Speaking at Pauline Newman’s Funeral Stone Unveiling Ceremony

In Jewish tradition, about one year after a person’s death, they put up a funeral stone and have a short ceremony where people speak about memories of the deceased. In this, Richard Newman speaks about the time that he and his brother, Yakov, spent with their mother, Pauline.

File:Israel Tomb of Rabbi Meir Shimon bar Yochai candle.jpgSimeon bar Yochai

From Wikipedia

Simeon bar Yochai, (Aramaic: רבן שמעון בר יוחאי, Rabban Shimon bar Yochai), also known by his acronym Rashbi,[1] was a 1st-century tannaitic sage in ancient Israel, said to be active after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. He was one of the most eminent disciples of Rabbi Akiva, and is pseudepigraphically attributed by many Orthodox Jews with the authorship of the Zohar, the chief work of Kabbalah.

In addition, important legal homilies called Sifre and Mekhilta are attributed to him (not to be confused with the Mekhilta d’Rabbi Ishmael, of which much of the text is the same). In the Mishnah, in which he is the fourth-most mentioned sage, he is often referred to as simply “Rabbi Shimon.” [2]

According to popular legend, he and his son, Rabbi Eleazar b. Simeon were noted Kabbalists.[3] Both figures are held in unique reverence by kabbalistic tradition. They were buried in the same tomb in Meron, Israel, which is visited by thousands year round.From Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

File:Gerson von Bleichröder.jpgGerson von Bleichröder

From Wikipedia

Gerson von Bleichröder (22 December 1822 – 18 February 1893) was a Jewish German banker.

Bleichröder was born in Berlin. He was the eldest son of Samuel Bleichröder, who founded the banking firm of S. Bleichröder in 1803 in Berlin. Gerson first joined the family business in 1839.[1] In 1855 upon the death of his father, Gerson became the head of the banking firm.[2] The bank maintained close contacts with the Rothschild family; the banking house of Bleichröder acted as a branch office in Berlin of the Rothschilds’ bank.

Traditionally, the Rothschilds represented the banking interests of the Austrian-controlled German Confederation in Europe.[3] In the conflict between the rapidly rising and expanding nation of Prussia and the “pro-Austrian” German Confederation, the Rothschild Bank was largely caught in an uncomfortable position in the middle of the conflict.,,,,Read More Button--orange

From Wikipedia

Emma Goldman (June 27 [O.S. June 15], 1869 – May 14, 1940) was an anarchist known for her political activism, writing, and speeches. She played a pivotal role in the development of anarchist political philosophy in North America and Europe in the first half of the 20th century.,,,,,,,,,,

Emma Goldman’s Orthodox Jewish family lived in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas (called Kovno at the time, part of the Russian Empire).[4] Goldman’s mother Taube Bienowitch had been married before, to a man with whom she had two daughters—Helena in 1860 and Lena in 1862. When her first husband died of tuberculosis, Taube was devastated. Goldman later wrote: “Whatever love she had had died with the young man to whom she had been married at the age of fifteen.”[5],,,,,,,,,,,From Wikipedia

Seed and Tree: How to Plant Eternity

What mark will you leave on the universe? As mortal creatures and temporal beings can we ever hope to touch eternity? Can our lives have any permanent impact? Or are our actions as fleeting as the blowing winds — here today, gone tomorrow? Cynics remind us of the verse: “What profit has man in all his toil that he toils under the sun? A generation goes and a generation comes, but the earth endures forever… What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.” In a world of over 7 billion people and counting what lasting significance does your life have? ,,,,
