My Yiddishe Momme (sung in yiddish) Regine Zylberberg

18.10.2008
My Yiddishe Momme ( Mein Yiddische Mame)
Regine Zylberberg – vocal

A Idishe mame,
Zi makht dokh zis di gantze velt,
A Idishe mame,
Oy vey, vi bitter, ven zi felt,
Ihr darft dokh danken Got,
Vus Ikh hot ihr nokh bay zikh.
Oy vey, vi troyerik zu sein.
Ven zi geyt avek tzu gikh
In vaser in fayer
Volt zi gelofn far ir kind.
Nisht hubn zi tayer,
Dus is gevis di greste zind.
Oy vi gliklekh un raykh
Iz der mentch, vus hot
Aza shayne metune geshenkt fin Got,
Nuch an altishke Idishe mame,
Mame Mame mayn!

Translation:

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

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

ANECDOTE: ” My Yiddishe Momme”

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

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

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

Title: A Yidishe Mame — אַ ייִדישע מאַמע
Also known as: Yidishe Mame
Also known as: Mayn Yidishe Mame
Also known as: My Yidishe Mame
Author: Yellen, Jack
Composer: Yellen, Jack
Composer: Pollack, Lou — פּאָלעק, לאָו
Genre: Nostalgia/Family
Subject: Mother/Constancy/Devotion/Immigration

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

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

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

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day 2014

01.05.2014
Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day is May 5, 2014 (beginning sundown May 4)
The Israeli Memorial Day” for Fallen Soldiers and Victim of Terror

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

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day 2014

01.05.2014
Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day is May 5, 2014 (beginning sundown May 4)
The Israeli Memorial Day” for Fallen Soldiers and Victim of Terror

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

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day 2014

01.05.2014
Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day is May 5, 2014 (beginning sundown May 4)
The Israeli Memorial Day” for Fallen Soldiers and Victim of Terror

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

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day 2014

01.05.2014
Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day is May 5, 2014 (beginning sundown May 4)
The Israeli Memorial Day” for Fallen Soldiers and Victim of Terror

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

Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day 2014

01.05.2014
Yom Hazikaron Israel Memorial Day is May 5, 2014 (beginning sundown May 4)
The Israeli Memorial Day” for Fallen Soldiers and Victim of Terror

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

JN1’s Ron Jacosbohn discovers Jewish tourism draws global demand

 16.04.2014

Ron Jacobsohn, JN1 Correspondent:
Many countries in the world have discovered the potential in the Jewish tourist and have actively started to market vacations, which are potentially lucrative for Jews as we found out when we attended the International Mediterranean Tourism Market.

The Portuguese Tourism Minister, Alfonso Mesquita Nunes, explains how his country has created a “Jewish Route” for the Jewish tourists who want to discover the countries very fascinating roots in the Jewish tradition.

Alfonso Mesquita Nunes, Portuguese Tourism Minister:
“We created the routes of the Jewish Legacy with the Jewish Quarters all over the country, we’ve got plenty of them, in a religious and also in a cultural way so its not just a religious point of view. And jointly with other traditions of the country, like its scenery, like its gastronomy, with Jewish influences also can be a very good option for a holiday destination. In the gastronomy you have Jewish influences, in the architecture, in urban planning, you can see in several places you can see the Jewish influences and there are villages in Portugal, which are clearly Jewish inspired urban planning and its very interesting.”

Nixson Young who works for the Tansinian tourism authorities explains there is a resurgence of Jewish visitors to his country as well as places to get Kosher food.

Nixson Young, Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, Tanzania:
“There is a Jewish community in Tanzania, and most of them are in Dar es Salaam and in Arusha in Tanzania. The Jewish food is mainly found in most hotels and lodges, that’s where in their menu they have included Jewish food.”

The Trade Officer at the Brazilian Embassy in Tel-Aviv, Regina Wiadcz, tells us about the very vibrant Jewish history and life in her home country.

Regina Wiadcz, Trade Officer, Brazilian Embassy in Israel:
“Brazil has, I would say, the second largest Jewish community in South America, its around 100,000 people spread all over Brazil. The Jewish tourists will find a very very warm community with a lot of synagogues. The Brazilians are not racists. In Brazil you don’t feel any antisemitism, I think they are open people to receive foreigners whatever their religion is. Kosher became very trendy in Brazil. In all the supermarkets you will find, lets say, shelves especially dedicated to Kosher food, you have more than 300 trademarks of Kosher products.”

Ilan Lazarevic of Kosher Montenegro, who also serves as the EJP member of his country, talks about the renassance on the Montenegrin Jewish life, which tourists can enjoy side-by-side with the ancient Jewish history of the country.

Ilan Lazarevic, Kosher Montenegro:
“Montenegro has a really rich history of Judaism and now with a huge help from the European Jewish Parliament we are going to have a new established Jewish community in Montenegro, the first Jewish synagogue and cultural center, so its going to be an amazing move. A really big step for Jewish tourism in Montenegro.”

Katarzyna Sobierajska, the Polish Deputy State Secretary at the Ministry of Sports and Tourism, pitches Poland as one of the most fascinating places in Europe to trace a 1000 year Jewish history.

Katarzyna Sobierajska, Deputy State Secretary, Ministry of Sport and Tourism:
“Our history, especially during the Second World War, all monuments concerning this time are the very important for Jewish people and Jewish tourists. Many Polish cities, especially in the big cities, like Warsaw, Gdańsk and Krakow of course, there are many Kosher restaurants so everybody can find good food.”

Ecuador is not a country that one associates with vibrent Jewish life, but turns out as Oscar Ramirez, the consul of Ecuador in Israel, tells us, his country is one of the biggest manufactures of Kosher foods in Latin America.

Oscar Ramirez, Consul, Ecuadorian Embassy in Israel:
“We have around 100 Jewish families in Ecuador, it’s a small community, they are mostly located in Quito, which is the capital, and in the second largest city which is Guayaquil, which has a smaller community. Actually in Ecuador we produce some Kosher food which is exported mostly for the United States market.”

Croatian Ambassador to Israel, Pjer Simounovic, talks about a fascinating tour of east meets west, for Jews who want to come discover traditions of both Ashkenazim and Sephardi Jews, which are both present in his country.

Pjer Simounovic, Croatian Ambassador to Israel:
“In Croatia you have many different Jewish traditions. You have Ashkenazim tradition in the north and you have Sephardi tradition in Split. Croatia is also very important when it comes to Jewish cinematography. You know ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ has been filmed in an original location in Croatia.”

Ron Jacobsohn, JN1 Correspondent:
It is fascinating to see how many countries have tapped onto the potential of the lucrative Jewish tourist, who in most cases bring with him the high end of spending habits.

מטלטל-האדמור מקאליב מספר על היותו בשואה-מרגש

24.03.2014

http://israelvideosfeed.com נולד במרגיטה שבטרנסילבניה למשפחת אדמו”רים צאצאי רבי יצחק אייזיק מקאליב. נישא לחנה שרה שפרה טאוב (תרע”ח, 1918 -כ”ד בכסלו תשע”ב, דצמבר 2011), בתו של רבי פנחס שפירא מקעכניא. ב-1939 נפטר אביו בהותירו אחריו 7 יתומים. לאחר כיבוש הונגריה על ידי הגרמנים ב-1944, מנחם מנדל עם כל אחיו ואחיותיו נשלחו לאושוויץ וכל אחיו נספו שם. הוא שרד אך עבר עינויים קשים, בהם טיפול כימי המונע מזקנו לצמוח. לאחר השואה עבר לשבדיה, שם התאחד עם אשתו שפרה (נפטרה בשנת ה’תשע”ב). לאחר מכן עבר לארצות הברית. ב-1963 הקים את מרכז חסידי קאליב בראשון לציון (קריית קאליב) ובשנת 1980 עבר לבני ברק, שם הקים את מרכז חסידות קאליב ברחוב השומר. בשנת תשס”ב עבר להתגורר בירושלים ברחוב חנה.
האדמו”ר מקאליב הוא אחד מגדולי מנציחי השואה כיום. הוא תיקן את אמירת שמע ישראל בסיום כל תפילה לזכר הניספים, וכמו כן מעודד אמירת “שמע ישראל” כזכר לקדושי השואה בסיום עצרות המוניות בציבור הדתי והחרדי. בשנים האחרונות הוא החל במפעל אנציקלופדיה לשואה לציבור החרדי ופועל להקמת מוזיאון לשואה עבור הציבור החרדי, שיהיה מוזיאון משלים ליד ושם, לאחר שלדבריו לא מנציחים מספיק את גבורתם הרוחנית של היהודים שמסרו נפשם לקיים מצוות גם בשנים ההן.
