Jacob Berab, also spelled Berav or Bei-Rav, (b. Moqueda, nr. Toledo, Castilian Spain, 1474 – d. Safed, Ottoman sanjak of Safed, April 3, 1546), was an influential rabbi and talmudist best known for his attempt to reintroduce rabbinic ordination as a prelude to Jewish autonomy in Ottoman Southern Syria.
Berab was born at Moqueda near Toledo, Castilian Spain in 1474. He later became a pupil of Isaac Aboab. After the expulsion of Jews from Spain, he fled to Fez and from there to Tlemçen, then the chief town of the Barbary states. There, the Jewish community consisting of 5,000 families, chose him for their rabbi, though he was but a youth of eighteen. Evidence of the great respect there paid him is afforded by the following lines of Abraham Gavison: “Say not that the lamp of the Law no longer in Israel burneth! Jacob Berab hath come back—once more among us he sojourneth!”Photo by Wikipedia

This Day in Jewish History / Blood libel ignites fresh Jew-hatred in Hungary
Passover was to begin three days later, and rumors began to spread that Eszter had been kidnapped by Jews who planned to kill her and take her …
Megöltek egy kis libapásztort. Égre kiált a régi vád,
úgy ölték meg Solymosi Esztert, mint egy tokos, pihés libát,
mint egy síró galambfiókot,
szûz juhocskát Húsvét elõtt…
The Tiszaeszlár Affair was a blood libel which led to a trial that set off anti-semitic agitation in Austria-Hungary in 1882 and 1883.After the disappearance of a local girl, Eszter Solymosi, Jews were accused of ritually murdering and beheading her. After her body was found some time later in a river, she having apparently drowned, it was claimed that the body was not that of Eszter, but had been dressed in her clothes. A lengthy trial followed, eventually resulting in the acquittal of all the accused. Eszter Solymosi Photo by Wikipedia
İstanbul – Camondo Stairs – Mart 2013
Count Abraham Camondo (1781, Constantinople – March 30, 1873, Paris) was a Jewish Ottoman-Italian financier and philanthropist and the patriarch of the Camondo family.
He was born in Constantinople, Ottoman Empire. In 1832 he inherited from his brother Isaac (who died without children) a fortune and was able to expand it greatly during his life. While Venice was under Austrian rule, he received as an Austrian subject the title of Chevalier of the Order of Francis Joseph. When Venice again became an Italian possession, Camondo, as a Venetian citizen, presented large gifts to several Italian philanthropic institutions, in recognition of which King Victor Emmanuel conferred upon him the title of count, with the privilege of transmitting it in perpetuity to the eldest son of the family.

The Legacy of Rosina Lhevinne
To Order (Director’s Cut, 66 min.): http://www.arkatovproductions.com/ord…
This Award winning film offers a revealing and compelling portrait of the life and achievements of the legendary Rosina Lhevinne who is regarded as one of the great pianist, master/teachers of all time. Through intimate conversations and stunning performances we will witness her inspiring growth, particularly from age 65 to 96. And we will observe how she taught and influenced some of the world’s most celebrated musicians as James Levine, John Williams and Van Cliburn.
Rosina Bessie was the younger of two daughters of Maria (née Katch) and Jacques Bessie, a prosperous jeweler from a Dutch Jewish family who emigrated to the Russian Empire to ply his trade as a diamond merchant. There were violent anti-Semitic riots in Kiev during her first year, and the Bessies moved to Moscow in 1881 or 1882. The young Rosina began studying piano at the age of six with a teacher in Moscow, where the family had moved shortly after her birth. When her teacher became ill, a family friend suggested that she continue her studies with Josef Lhévinne, a talented student at the Moscow Imperial Conservatory, five years older than Rosina.
She showed remarkable talent, and several years later she was admitted to the Conservatory herself, where she also studied with Lhévinne’s teacher, Vasily Safonov. At her graduation in 1898, she won the Gold Medal in piano as had Josef before her, and that year the two were married. With Josef’s career as a concert pianist already well underway
Moshe (Moritz) Wallach (28 December 1866 – 8 April 1957) was a German Jewish physician and pioneering medical practitioner in Jerusalem. He was the founder of Shaarei Zedek Hospital on Jaffa Road, which he directed for 45 years. He introduced modern medicine to the impoverished and disease-plagued citizenry, accepting patients of all religions and offering free medical care to indigents. He was so closely identified with the hospital that it became known as “Wallach’s Hospital”. A strictly Torah-observant Jew, he was also an activist in the Agudath Israel Orthodox Jewish movement. He was buried in the small cemetery adjacent to the hospital.
Moshe Wallach was one of seven children born to Joseph Wallach (1841–1921), a textile merchant originally from Euskirchen, and Marianne Levy of Münstereifel. His parents moved to Cologne following their marriage in 1863. Joseph Wallach was a founder of Adass Jeshurun, the Cologne Orthodox community, which he later served as president. Photo by Wikipedia

Shaare Zedek Medical Center Gala- Interview with Prof. Jonathan Halevy
For more than a century, in Jerusalem, a 500-bed facility located in the center of the city, has been known as the Hospital with a Heart. Patients have consistently streamed to our hospital, seeking top level treatment in a compassionate, supportive and nurturing environment. Today, Shaare Zedek is the most exceptional hospital for health care treatment in Israel. Shaare Zedek has taken its commitment to its patients to the next level by providing industry leading, cutting-edge medical care.
Shaare Zedek first opened its doors as a 20-bed facility on Jaffa Road in 1902 with Dr. Moshe Wallach serving as the Medical Director for the first 46 years. In 1979, now a thriving and esteemed medical facility, the hospital moved to a more central location, a 14-acre site opposite Mt. Herzl. To fully ensure the safety of its patients, the first three stories of the ten-floor complex, housing vital areas such as the operating theaters, Emergency Room, Pharmacy and medical supplies, were built underground, so that even in times of military attack, the hospital can continue to function.
Shaare Zedek is a public non-profit hospital with 40,000 admissions, 125,000 outpatient visits and 60,000 Emergency visits annually.
Their departments gained international acclaim, the spectrum of treated ailments and diseases has become as vast as the diversity of the population we treat. Shaare Zedek staff of more than 2000 employees is made up of the most highly acclaimed and sought after physicians, nurses and medical professionals in their respective fields.
From the most advanced procedures in Laparoscopic Surgery to the latest technology in robotics, from the treating of victims of terror and IDF soldiers, to expectant mothers needing advanced prenatal care; from seniors with tragic illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease, to cancer patients fighting for their lives, we provide a full range of services at the highest level to every patient who walks through our doors.
Like all other hospitals in Jerusalem, Shaare Zedek does not receive ANY funding from the Israeli government and therefore they rely on the generosity of their friends and family from around the world to help them to continue to provide the healthcare experience our patients have come to expect.
Paul Erdős – A Brilliant Mathematician
A short film of the life of the very interesting mathematician Paul Erdős.
Imaginary Erdős Number – Numberphile
Paul Erdős (Hungarian: Erdős Pál [ˈɛrdøːʃ paːl]; 26 March 1913 – 20 September 1996) was a Jewish-Hungarian mathematician. He was one of the most prolific mathematicians of the 20th century, but also known for his social practice of mathematics (more than 500 collaborators) and eccentric lifestyle (Time magazine called him The Oddball’s Oddball). Erdős pursued problems incombinatorics, graph theory, number theory, classical analysis, approximation theory, set theory, and probability theory.
Paul Erdős was born in Budapest, Austria-Hungary, on March 26, 1913. He was the only surviving child of Anna and Lajos Erdős (formerly Engländer). His siblings, aged 3 and 5, died on the day he was born. His parents were both Jewish mathematics teachers from a vibrant intellectual community. His fascination with mathematics developed early—by the age of four, given a person’s age, he could calculate, in his head, how many seconds they had lived Photo by Wikipedia

The first Jews came to the island during the Spanish occupation of the Island, 1494-1655. These Jews came from Spain and Portugal. They fled because of the Spanish inquisition. To conceal their identity they referred to themselves as “Portuguese” or “Spanish” and practiced their religion secretly. At the time of the British conquest of the island in 1655, General venables recorded the presence of many “Portuguese” in Jamaica.
