<h1New Antisemitism English Subs האנטישמיות החדשה כיתוביות באנגלית

16.04.2013
An investigative documentary called The New Anti-Semitism was aired on Sunday night, the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day 2013, on Channel 2 …

SYNOPSIS
=========
The Keshet documentary is a Canadian-Israeli co-production presented by Israeli anchorman Ya’akov Eilon. The binational cooperation enabled Canadian journalists to interview people that Israelis would not have had access to, such as Alex Linder, the owner and operator of the viciously anti-Semitic, white supremacist Vanguard News Network.

The filmmakers document what they describe as “new Anti-Semitism” through the use of hidden cameras in conferences, demonstrations and behind the scenes of anti-Zionist meetings across the globe.

Filmmaker and director Martin Himel told The Jerusalem Post that the primary objective of the documentary is to present “Anti-Semitism in action,” to allow viewers to feel what it means and to acknowledge that is exists.

“My goal was not so much to explain it [Anti-Semitism] or to describe how people suffer. For me it was more important to say, ‘Here is the new Anti-Semitism, take a look and see it for what it is,'” he clarified.

The director pointed to comparisons of Jews with Nazis and the use of terms such as “genocide,” “extinction” and extermination” when discussing Israel as examples of contemporary Anti-Semitism. He also cited claims that Jews control Hollywood, the banks and the media as examples.

He was keen, however, to point out the difference between being critical of Israel and being anti-Semitic, saying that the former conversely includes language such as “occupation,” “annexation of territories” and “settlements.” Himel also flagged lobbies such as Occupy AIPAC, which he charged with disguising Anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism. The documentary “pulls the pants down on people who say ‘I’m anti- Zionist, not an anti-Semite,'” Himel told the Post… http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/Jewi&#8230;

HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS (1984) — 5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE

with ABBA EBAN

(DVD description)

Winner of the coveted Peabody Award, HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS is the monumental nine-part series spanning three millennia of Jewish history and culture. The series is hosted by former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Abba Eban, who describes it as “a celebration of our common humanistic and moral heritage, explored through the mysteries of preservation, renewal, and resonance of the Jewish people.” From the stony heights of Sinai to the shores of the Dead Sea, from a Greek amphitheater in Delphi to the Forum of ancient Rome, out of the ashes of concentration camps to the rebuilt cities and villages of Israel, “Heritage” brings to life the long and complex history of the Jews and their centuries-old interaction with the rest of Western civilization.

5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE (1492 — 1789)
This program picks up the thread of Jewish history as the intellectual awakening of the Renaissance began to alter the attitudes and habits of all people. Such scholars as Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Johanes Kepler, and Galileo began to examine the world around them with new eyes. Abba Eban takes viewers through the narrow alleys of the Venetian ghetto, as he explains the reality of ghetto life. Jewish composers, artists, and poets achieved fame the transcended the ghetto walls. Spanish and Portuguese Jews who had escaped the persecution of the Spanish Inquisition flocked to Amsterdam, known as the “New Jerusalem” where refugees from religious intolerance were welcomed.

Global Holocaust Memory and the New Anti-Semitism

13.02.2014
A Center for Jewish Studies’ Community Lecture
Alejandro Baer, director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, University of Minnesota
Feb. 5, 2014
Beth El Synagogue

Research on contemporary anti-Semitism, as well as Holocaust education and commemoration reveals that the way people think about the Holocaust is changing. Rather than public discussions of the Holocaust discouraging hatred, in some cases the reverse is happening. This new phenomenon, sometimes called “memory envy,” or “Holocaust skepticism,” is channeling new resentments and hostilities. Professor Baer will shed light on the sources, functions and different contexts of emergence of a new anti-Semitism related to the globalization of Holocaust memory.

Prof. Baer is the director and Stephen C. Feinstein Chair of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at the University of Minnesota. He has authored numerous articles addressing issues of genocide, memory, and antisemitism. Prof. Baer directed the Spanish section of the Shoah Visual Archives and has served as a member of the Spanish delegation to the International Task Force for Holocaust Education Remembrance and Research. His books include “Holocaust: Remembrance and Representation.” More recently he has curated a traveling exhibition, Visas for Freedom: Spanish Diplomats and the Holocaust.

HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS (1984) — 5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE

with ABBA EBAN

(DVD description)

Winner of the coveted Peabody Award, HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS is the monumental nine-part series spanning three millennia of Jewish history and culture. The series is hosted by former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Abba Eban, who describes it as “a celebration of our common humanistic and moral heritage, explored through the mysteries of preservation, renewal, and resonance of the Jewish people.” From the stony heights of Sinai to the shores of the Dead Sea, from a Greek amphitheater in Delphi to the Forum of ancient Rome, out of the ashes of concentration camps to the rebuilt cities and villages of Israel, “Heritage” brings to life the long and complex history of the Jews and their centuries-old interaction with the rest of Western civilization.

5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE (1492 — 1789)
This program picks up the thread of Jewish history as the intellectual awakening of the Renaissance began to alter the attitudes and habits of all people. Such scholars as Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Johanes Kepler, and Galileo began to examine the world around them with new eyes. Abba Eban takes viewers through the narrow alleys of the Venetian ghetto, as he explains the reality of ghetto life. Jewish composers, artists, and poets achieved fame the transcended the ghetto walls. Spanish and Portuguese Jews who had escaped the persecution of the Spanish Inquisition flocked to Amsterdam, known as the “New Jerusalem” where refugees from religious intolerance were welcomed.

Heritage: Civilization and the Jews (1984) — 5. The Search for Deliverance

HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS (1984) — 5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE

with ABBA EBAN

(DVD description)

Winner of the coveted Peabody Award, HERITAGE: CIVILIZATION AND THE JEWS is the monumental nine-part series spanning three millennia of Jewish history and culture. The series is hosted by former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Abba Eban, who describes it as “a celebration of our common humanistic and moral heritage, explored through the mysteries of preservation, renewal, and resonance of the Jewish people.” From the stony heights of Sinai to the shores of the Dead Sea, from a Greek amphitheater in Delphi to the Forum of ancient Rome, out of the ashes of concentration camps to the rebuilt cities and villages of Israel, “Heritage” brings to life the long and complex history of the Jews and their centuries-old interaction with the rest of Western civilization.

5. THE SEARCH FOR DELIVERANCE (1492 — 1789)
This program picks up the thread of Jewish history as the intellectual awakening of the Renaissance began to alter the attitudes and habits of all people. Such scholars as Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Johanes Kepler, and Galileo began to examine the world around them with new eyes. Abba Eban takes viewers through the narrow alleys of the Venetian ghetto, as he explains the reality of ghetto life. Jewish composers, artists, and poets achieved fame the transcended the ghetto walls. Spanish and Portuguese Jews who had escaped the persecution of the Spanish Inquisition flocked to Amsterdam, known as the “New Jerusalem” where refugees from religious intolerance were welcomed.

Rise in immigration to Israel: January witnesses 6% increase in Aliya to Jewish homeland

26.03.2014

Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics shows a 6% increase in immigration to Israel in January, what is referred to here as “Aliya”, Hebrew for ascending to the land of Israel. Strolling the streets of Tel Aviv, we asked Israelis why they felt many Jews from abroad make their way over here

Passover Story

27.03.2009
http://JewishHistory.org The Passover Story. The great holiday of Passover is one of the central days in the Jewish Calendar. The Jewish people came down to Egypt through Joseph. Joseph was at one point the viceroy of Egypt, but after he died, the Jewish people sink into slavery. This slavery was very harsh- both physically and spiritually, yet somehow there is a core of the Jewish people that survives and remains loyal to the ideas of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Moses is the great redeemer, who was himself raised in the Egyptian court through the Princess having adopted him. Through a series of events involving G-d miracles and plagues, Moses becomes the messenger of freedom- and the Jewish people leave Egypt.

Not all the Jews make it out of Egypt. According to a Midrash, 80% of the Jewish people stayed and died in Egypt. Whatever the Exact numbers, there was still a massive exodus- and the Jewish people (along with some others who left Egypt with them) were freed and begin their wandering in the Desert. Freedom must have a purpose, and the purpose of the Jewish people was to spread the concept of G-d, morality, charity, Monotheism, and goodness throughout the world.

In the Sinai Desert, the Jewish people receive the Torah and become a nation- the beginning of a long journey of spreading light throughout the world. The Passover holiday is re-enacted every year and tells us the value of freedom, purpose, faith, and family.

At Rabbi Wein’s Passover table- there was sometimes a span of over 300 years sitting at the table (the Rabbi’s great-grandfather who witnessed generations before him, and his great grandson who will G-d willing witness generations after him). Going back in History, it would only take 10 more tables like this to connect the Jewish people back to the time of the Exodus. This is an example of how Passover is a family holiday.

By sitting together, we testify to our past, to our commitment to the future, to our faith, to the fact that we are an eternal people. And to the fact that freedom means discipline and purpose- only a person who accepts upon themselves the yoke of Torah and morality is truly free.

The first law of Passover is to give charity to the poor so that they can also have a Seder (Passover meal).
