BBC My Life, My Religion 4 Judaism

25.04.2015
Judaism – My Life, My Religion Episode 4 of 5 – What does it mean to be Jewish? 11-year-old Charlie explains his religion of Judaism in this Learning Zone programme for primary school children.

Charlie is sports mad and thinks the best thing about being Jewish is the food. His family belong to an orthodox synagogue in Manchester. He tries his best to follow the rules of Shabbat, the weekly Jewish day of rest, but admits it can be tempting to switch on his phone and TV. When it comes to the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, he reveals how it feels to be judged by God.

13-year-old Me-Me, short for Amelia, invites the cameras in to her bat mitzvah rehearsal at her Reform synagogue as she prepares to become a Jewish adult. How will she feel about this new chapter of her life?

Meanwhile, ten-year-old Solly and his family recreate Passover Seder night, to remember how the Israelites eventually left slavery in Egypt. Later in the year, he makes traditional Latkas with his mum to celebrate the Jewish Festival of Chanukah.

My Life, My Religion: Judaism is one of a series of programmes aimed at Key Stage 2 Religious Studies

Collecting Jewish Cultural Treasures in a Post-WWII New York Lobby

15.04.2014 During the summer of 1948, only three years after the end of World War II, Ben Stonehill, a man devoted to Jewish culture, recorded recently-arrived Jewish survivors of the war who were temporarily housed in a hotel in upper Manhattan. The singers included men, women, and children. Stonehill collected over a thousand songs of many kinds: joyful as well as sad, mainly in Yiddish but also in Hebrew, Polish, and Russian. These songs are musical testimonies to the resilience of the survivors, a direct link to pre-war Jewish life in Eastern Europe, and a cultural treasure. The music and chatting that went on in between the songs tell not only of the singers’ terrible traumas but also of their hopes, and reflect the sheer pleasure of reconnecting with others through song. In this talk, Isaacs describes the role of the Library of Congress in preserving this unique musical treasure. She plays some of these almost forgotten recordings and talks about the collector, the singers, and their times. Speaker Biography: Miriam Isaacs is retired affiliate visiting associate professor of Yiddish Language and Culture, University of Maryland College Park. She received her Ph.D., M.A. in Linguistics from Cornell University. She is a native speaker of Yiddish and has language skills in English, French, German, Modern Hebrew and Russian. While in residence in the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, Dr. Isaacs worked on her project entitled, “Oral Culture in Transition: The Legacy of the Benjamin Stonehill Collection.”

Der Lambeth hop (The Lambeth Walk in Yiddish)

26.05.2015 This was sung by George Kessler to Ben Stonehill in the Hotel Marsellaise in the summer of 1948. Stonehill was an amateur ethnomusicologist collecting songs from Jews recently released from DP camps. Some of his songs, including this one, can be found at http://www.ctmd.org/stonehill.htm

Benedictine monk converts to Judaism

Converting to Judaism

04.05.2015 http://to.pbs.org/1AqOBt4 Despite the sometimes lengthy and challenging process—and concerns that converted Jews are not “100 percent” Jewish—many converts find fulfillment and a sense of identity in the Jewish faith. According to Shmuly Yanklowitz, an Orthodox rabbi and himself a convert, Judaism will need to become more inclusive and more accepting of converts to survive in the 21st century.

For My Children? Only The Best

29.07.2015 Parents are never satisfied to provide their children with the minimum, or even the average. For their own needs a father or mother might settle for less, but for their children they want only the greatest and the best they can provide. If this is so with food and clothing, which are quite temporary, how much more so when it comes to a child’s spiritual education, which impacts the rest of his or her entire life.

History of the Jews in Vancouver

Early Jewish settlers were isolated from established Jewish institutions and communities in eastern Canada and the United States. They were also often isolated from each other, scattered across the Greater Vancouver area. As the local cities developed, the Jewish community also grew and expanded beyond the original business districts to spread throughout the area. While some early Jewish settlers ran farms, poultry operations, and sawmills, most tended to work in merchant industries. Many started as street peddlersand worked their way up to running small stores, a few of which grew into retail empires. read more…From Wikipedia,  Stanton Street Shul on Lower East Side in New York City on National Register of Historic Places in New York City foto wikipedia

הארץ המובטחת: חזרה לרעיון להקים מדינה יהודית באוסטרליה

24.06.2015 “למה אבא לא הקים מדינה ליהודים באוסטרליה?”, שואל יוסל ברגנר, ״כי היו שם יותר מדי זבובים״. מלך ראוויטש בכינויו וזכריה ברגנר בשמו, היה פיגורה בסצינת התרבות של יהודי פולין בין שתי המלחמות. ״סופר טוב וצמחוני״, מגדיר אותו בנו בן ה־95. אבל מעבר לעוצמת שורותיו, פיעמה בין רקותיו של ראוויטש תחושת אסון מתרגש. בספר ״עיקר שכחתי״, שכתב יוסל ברגנר עם רות בונדי, מצוטט שיר שפרסם מלך ראוויטש לפני השואה: ״על גדות מימיה של הויסלה בתי עולם יהודיים יצמחו על פני שווקים, סמטאות עיירת, רחבי ערים, במרומי קרת״ (תרגם מיידיש א״ד שפיר) כשגברה האנטישמיות איבד ראוויטש כל אמונה בעתיד יהודי באירופה. ״צאו מפה״, נהג להפציר בחבריו הסופרים בורשה. אחד מהם, אורי צבי גרינברג, סבר שהעתיד בפלשתינה ובכתיבה בעברית. אחר, יצחק בשביס זינגר, הרחיק לניו יורק וגרף נובל לספרות. לצד פואטיקה שוצפת, התרוצצה בראוויטש מעשיות ראויה שחיברה אותו לטריטוריאליסטים. אלה גרסו שאם ציון לא ניתנת למימוש, יש לחתור למציאת מקלט בכל מקום שהוא. בבוקר קיצי ב־1933, כשהוא ממומן על ידי אינטלקטואלים יהודים, חמוש בהיתר רשמי, נושא מכתב של אלברט איינשטיין, השאיר ראוויטש את אשתו ושני ילדיו הקטנים בורשה ויצא מגולח, ענוב ונחוש לחפש את ירושלים החדשה. על פי ״תוכנית קימברלי״, שאת היתכנותה חש לבדוק, יוקצו ליהודים 20 אלף קמ״ר בחבל קימברלי שבצפון־מערב אוסטרליה. נתח האדמה הזה שכן ב״אאוטבק״, החצר הנידחת של אוסטרליה, וגודלו היה כגודלה של ישראל. בשלב הראשון ייושבו בו כ־100 אלף יהודים, בעיקר ממזרח אירופה, שינסו להפריח את השממה.

Yosl Bergner

24.06.2015 Yosl Bergner was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1920 and grew up in Warsaw, Poland. With rampant anti-Semitism in Europe, the Freeland League for Jewish Territorial Colonization was formed in the United States in July 1935, to search for a potential Jewish homeland. Soon afterwards a pastoral firm in Australia offered the League about 16,500 square kilometres (6,400 sq mi) in the Kimberleys, stretching from the north of Western Australia into the Northern Territory. As history showed, the plans went nowhere. But for a time, the Australian idea was at least worth considering. Bergner’s father, Melech Ravitch, became involved in a serious investigation of the Kimberley Plan. In this way the Bergner family moved to Australia. Yosl emigrated to Australia in 1937 and studied in the National Gallery School in Melbourne until the outbreak of War World II. He served for four and a half years in the Australian Army, and later continued his studies at the Art School. In Melbourne from 1937–48, Bergner befriended many of the local artists who now epitomize modern Australian art: Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, John Perceval and Arthur Boyd.[1] Adrian Lawlor moved with his wife to a cottage at Warrandyte, an outer suburb of Melbourne, where they lived for 30 years. Bergner was a frequent visitor at their Warrandyte home. All the men socialized together. Bergner encouraged them to go beyond their traditional landscape style and introduced a more radical concern for working families, thus having an important impact on Australian art. Bergner may not have been prepared for the plight of many struggling Australians. Yet he felt a strong connection between the suffering of people everywhere, whether they were the Jews that he remembered from Europe, landless blacks in the heart of Australia or hungry children in inner urban Melbourne. He left Australia in 1948 and after two years of traveling and exhibiting in Paris, Montreal and New York, he settled in Israel. He lived in Safed until moving to Tel Aviv in 1957. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3z8PetmY1c

Itche Goldberg interviewed in YIddish

In this film (83 minutes) in Yiddish , 101-year-old educator, essayist, literary critic, poet, and editor Itche Goldberg discusses his life: his upbringing, schooling in Poland and Canada, his work as an educator and editor and his views as a literary critic. Itche speaks candidly with interviewer Eugene Orenstein of McGill University about the linke shuln (progressive schools), which he helped to shape, and very honestly assesses their strengths and shortcomings. Among other things, he recalls both a conflict with famed anarchist Emma Goldman and “kashering” a Yiddish reader with a photo of Lenin! What emerges is a multi-faceted picture of the world of a man who attended the funeral of the great Yiddish writer I.L. Peretz over 90 years ago and who remained creatively, intellectually and politically active in the Yiddish world until his death at 102! BIOGRAPHY Itche Goldberg (1904-2006) was born in Apt, Poland, and grew up in Warsaw. Since his arrival in Canada in 1920 as a teenager, the name Itche Goldberg has been synonymous with the linke (progressive) Yiddish movement. In 1925 Itche started Yungvelt, Canada’s first secular Jewish children’s camp. In 1932 he moved to New York City and from 1933 until the mid-1970s he was director of the Yiddish schools and cultural programs of the International Workers Order/Jewish People’s Fraternal Order (JPFO).(Beginning in 1953, following the dissolution of the IWO due to McCarthyism, the schools were run by the newly named Service Bureau for Jewish Education.) Itche edited Yidishe Kultur and the children’s magazine Yungvarg. In the 1950s he established the Zhitlowsky Foundation for Jewish Culture. He is the recipient of two major literary awards: Israel’s Itsik Manger Prize in 1985 and the Dovid Hofshteyn Prize in 1990. His latest book Eseyen — Tsvey (Essays — Two) was published in 2006. INTERVIEWER Eugene Orenstein is Associate Professor in the Dept. of Jewish Studies at McGill University where he teaches modern Jewish history and Yiddish literature. He was a student in the Ordn-shuln (schools of the Jewish People’s Fraternal Order) where Itche Goldberg was his teacher. This was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. DIRECTOR Josh Waletzky

‫A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט‬

A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity On Sunday, May 5, 2013, the League for Yiddish held a historic program, “A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity,” in honor of the publication of its book, New Yiddish Literature, Afn Shvel Issue # 358-359. The program features: greetings from Prof. David G. Roskies of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America; dramatic readings from the book by actor Hy Wolfe; a discussion on “Prospects for Contemporary Yiddish Writing” with Professors Marc Caplan, Dov-Ber Kerler, and Sheva Zucker; and new Yiddish songs composed and sung by Josh Waletzky. (Those interested will be able to hear the songs when Waletzky’s new CD is released.) The volume being honored (see the cover and excerpts at http://leagueforyiddish.org/palce3sdi…) encompasses the work of 30 people writing in Yiddish, ranging from college students to venerable older Yiddish writers, living on four continents and in seven countries. The evening was organized in partnership with the Program in Modern Jewish Studies of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט זונטיק, דעם 5טן מײַ 2013, האָט די ייִדיש־ליגע אָפּגעהאַלטן אַן איין־מאָל־אין־אַ־יובֿלדיקער פּראָגראַם, „אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט”, לכּבֿוד דעם אַרויסקום פֿון איר ביכל, נײַע ייִדישע ליטעראַטור (אויפֿן שוועל נומ’ 358־359). די פּראָגראַם באַשטייט פֿון: אַ באַגריסונג פֿון פּראָפֿ’ דוד־הירש ראָסקעס פֿון דעם ייִדישן טעאָלאָגישן סעמינאַר; דראַמאַטישע פֿאָרלייענונגען פֿונעם ביכל פֿון אַקטיאָר חיים וואָלף; אַ דיסקוסיע, „פּערספּעקטיוון פֿאַר דער הײַנטצײַטיקער ייִדישער ליטעראַטור, מיט די פּראָפֿעסאָרן מאַרק קאַפּלאַן, דבֿ־בער קערלער און שבֿע צוקער; און נײַע לידער געשריבן און קאָמפּאָנירט פֿון דזשאַש וואַלעצקי.

If Books Could Talk: The Story of Three Jewish Treasures Rescued from the Vilna Ghetto

26.05.2015 Monday, November 24, 2014 | 7pm YIVO Institute for Jewish Research FROM THE YIVO ARCHIVES Ruth Gay Seminar in Jewish Studies What are the secret lives of books? In the Vilna Ghetto, Yiddish poets Abraham Sutzkever and Szmerke Kaczerginski and others risked their lives to rescue Jewish treasures from destruction and looting by the Nazis. David Fishman (Jewish Theological Seminary) selects three of the extraordinary items they saved—Theodor Herzl’s diary, the minute-book from the Vilna Gaon’s synagogue, and an original manuscript of Jacob Gordin’s classic Yiddish play ‘Mirele Efros’—and reveals their “biographies”: their composition and significance; the story of their acquisition by YIVO; their rescue; and their retrieval after Vilna’s liberation. Two of these works were safely transported to YIVO in New York, but the third work encountered a very different fate in Soviet Lithuania. The Ruth Gay Seminar in Jewish Studies was established in 2008 in honor of Ruth Gay (1922-2006), the noted American Jewish historian and writer, with a generous gift from the family of Ruth Gay. The seminar series is given by scholars who have conducted research in the YIVO Archives and wish to share their work with the public.

סיפור על אהבה וחושך-מסע אל רובנו של עמוס עוז

Fania Oz returns to family building in the city Rivne, Ukraine בספר, שעלילתו אינה קווית, מתאר עוז בגוף ראשון ילדות בשכונת כרם אברהם, בירושלים ונעורים בקיבוץ חולדה. הסיפור מתנהל על רקע תקופת המנדט והחיכוך עם ערביי ארץ ישראל, הקמת המדינה ושנותיה הראשונות. עוז מתאר גם את הדורות הקודמים של משפחתו המזרח אירופאית. הספר, בנוסף להיותו תיעוד תרבותי, הוא תיאור אישי וכאוב מאוד של ילדות בצל נישואיהם המיוסרים של הוריו: אם דיכאונית ואב מלומד, קרוב אך גם מרוחק, שהקריירה שלו הוחמצה בצלו של הדוד הגדול. הטרגדיה המשפחתית מגיעה לשיאה כאשר אמו של עמוס, ילד בן שתים עשרה, מתאבדת אחרי תקופה ארוכה של ייסורי נפש. הספר רצוף בהרהורים פוליטיים וספרותיים ומצייר בעוקצנות, אך גם במידה של אמפתיה, אנשי רוח ופוליטיקאים בהם נתקל: דוֹד אביו, חוקר תקופת בית שני, יוסף קלוזנר, ש”י עגנון, שגר בסמוך לקלוזנר, דוד בן-גוריון, שהתכתב עם עוז מעל דפי דבר והזמינו לפגישה, ואחרים. אהבתו הראשונה של עוז, הייתה, כך הוא מספר, המשוררת זלדה, שלימדה אותו בכיתה ב’. אחד הקטעים המרשימים בספר הוא זה שבו נזכר עוז בפרץ השמחה העצום עם אישור האו”ם את תוכנית החלוקה ב-כ”ט בנובמבר.

Celebrating Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary with Channel 2 – Sivan Rahav Meir

Wikimedia Israel looked for a special way to celebrate the Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary – something that has never been done before. The result was a unique collaboration with TV Channel 2, the most viewed channel in Israel! For an entire week, five of the most senior Channel 2 reporters, who learned to edit Wikipedia by our volunteers, wrote or extended an article on Hebrew Wikipedia. Then, each recorded a one minute video, explaining why they have decided to write on this specific topic. Every day, just before the evening news broadcast, the video was broadcasted and while the anchor presented the project, he explained “we wanted to celebrate Wikipedia’s 10th anniversary and show that everyone can write an article on Wikipedia” . Happy Birthday Wikipedia! http://www.wikimedia.org.il

Reportajes y documentales: 90 minutos Alemania-Israel

11.05.2015 90 minutos Alemania-Israel – Fútbol entre Tel Aviv y BerlínCuando el Bayern Múnich juega en torneos internacionales, sus seguidores israelíes en Tel Aviv no pierden detalle. Cuando el jugador israelí Almog Cohen llegó a Núremberg, fue recibido por los hinchas locales con banderas de Israel. Y un alemán, Michael Nees, diseña el futuro del fútbol israelí como director técnico de la selección sub-21 y director técnico de la federación. Todo esto era impensable hace 50 años, cuando Alemania e Israel establecieron lazos diplomáticos. El fútbol jugó, y juega, un papel protagónico en la normalización de las relaciones germano-israelíes. Pero, ¿de qué hablamos cuando decimos “normales”? ¿Cómo viven los futbolistas judíos en Alemania? Y, ¿cómo vive un entrenador alemán en Israel, flanqueado por la realidad en Oriente Medio y el lastre de la historia?

The Lady Lifers: A moving song from women in prison for life

15.05.2015 The ten women in this chorus have all been sentenced to life in prison. They share a moving song about their experiences — one that reveals their hopes, regrets and fears. “I’m not an angel,” sings one, “but I’m not the devil.” Filmed at an independent TEDx event inside Muncy State Prison, it’s a rare and poignant look inside the world of people imprisoned with no hope of parole. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design — plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

Israel – what a beautiful country

The renewed growth of anti-Israeli attitudes is also irritating. Old and new resentments are being nurtured, revived, and advanced. Irraels will for self-defense and self-preservation is being distorted, and Israels right to act accordingly is being disputed. In this respect, our sympathy has certain priorities, and the latent left-wing anti-Zionism is shocking and annoying. Comparing Israelis with Nazis, calling their politics fascistic should in turn regard Germans as victims of an unaccepted defeat. Those who sell the terror initiated by the Palestinians as fight for freedom and who deny Israel the right for self-defense, who deny the positive sides of this one and only respectable justice system in the Near-East, nauseate us with their ideological untruthfulness.

File:Yad Vashem BW 2.JPG   Janusz Korczak and the children, memorial at Yad Vashem

Janusz Korczak

From Wikipedia, Janusz Korczak, the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit[1] (22 July 1878 or 1879 – August 7, 1942[2]), was a Polish-Jewish educator, children’s author, and pediatrician known as Pan Doktor (“Mr. Doctor”) or Stary Doktor (“Old Doctor”). After spending many years working as director of an orphanage in Warsaw, he refused freedom and stayed with his orphans when the institution was sent from the Ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp, during the Grossaktion Warsaw of 1942.[3]   Photo by Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

The Last Korczak Boy

15.04.2015 Itzchak Belfer never really left Yanusz Korczak’s orphanage on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw, Poland. Even though he is now 90 years old, a well-known Israeli artist, he will always be little Itzchakele from Warsaw, and Korczak is always with him in thought and spirit. The Polish doctor and educator lives on in Belfer’s drawings and paintings, and Yanusz Korczak’s spirit dwells in the artist’s soul. Belfer shares with us his amazingly clear memories from the orphanage on Krochmalna Street in pre-World War II Warsaw. He reveals Korczak’s unique view of children as, first of all, human beings to be treated with the same dignity and consideration as adults. He warmly describes the work of Korczak and his assistant, Stepha Wilczyńska, at the orphanage, their love for the children and their total dedication to saving them, which led to their tragic end. Janusz Korczak (Source: Yad Vashem) http://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/holoca… (Pen name of Henryk Goldszmit; 1878/9-1942) Polish Jewish doctor, author and educator. Born in Warsaw to an assimilated Jewish family, Korczak dedicated his life to caring for children, particularly orphans. He believed that children should always be listened to and respected, and this belief was reflected in his work. He wrote several books for and about children, and broadcast a children’s radio program. In 1912 Korczak became the director of a Jewish orphanage in Warsaw. When World War II broke out in 1939, Korczak first refused to accept the German occupation and heed their regulations (consequently spending time in jail). However, when the Jews of Warsaw were forced to move into a ghetto, Korczak refocused his efforts on the children in his orphanage. Despite offers from Polish friends to hide him on the “Aryan” side of the city, Korczak refused to abandon the children. On August 5, 1942, during a 2-month wave of deportations from the ghetto, the Nazis rounded up Korczak and his 200 children. They marched in rows to the Umschlagplatz with Korczak in the lead. He never abandoned his children, even to the very end. Korczak and the children were sent to Treblinka, where they were all murdered.

The Exodus as Cultural Memory- Ron Hendel

02.04.2015 Ron Hendel Ph.D., Norma and Sam Dabby Professor of Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies, University of California at Berkeley The Exodus is a central event in biblical and Jewish memory. But according to the archaeological and historical record, it is unclear what it is a memory of. I propose that it is, in part, a transformed memory of the demise of the Egyptian Empire in Canaan, which facilitated the emergence of Israel as an independent people. The story served as an engine of a distinctive cultural identity, a function that it continues to perform today.

Lia van Leer

From Wikipedia, Lia van Leer (Hebrew: ליה ון ליר‎, August 8, 1924 – March 13, 2015) was a pioneer in the field of art film programming and film archiving in Israel. She was the founder of the Haifa Cinematheque, the Jerusalem Cinematheque, the Israel Film Archive and theJerusalem Film Festival. Lia van Leer (Greenberg) was born on August 8, 1924 in the Bessarabian city of Bălți, then in Romania, now in Moldova. Her father, Simon Greenberg, was a wheat exporter and her mother, Olga, was a WIZO volunteer. She attended a public high school and spent summer holidays in the Carpathian mountains. In 1940, her parents sent her to Palestine to visit her sister Bruria, a dentist, who had immigrated in 1936 and was living in Tel Aviv. She never saw her parents again.[1] In July 1941, the Germans occupied Beltsy and murdered her father and other Jewish community leaders. Her mother and grandmother were deported to Transnistria and died in a concentration camp. Lia moved to Jerusalem in 1943 to attend the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 1952, she married Wim Van Leer, a Dutch engineer, pilot, playwright and film producer, and settled in Haifa.[2] They founded the country’s first film club in 1955.Read More Button--orange

The Synagogue Experience is a series of thirteen documentary shorts that immerse visitors in post-World War II synagogue architecture, a period of great diversity and inspiration as American Jews began to express themselves through the construction of monumental synagogue edifices. Featuring breathtaking timelapse photography and interviews with synagogue congregants and clergy, the films delve into the meaning and symbolism of the unparalleled architectural work of such esteemed architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Percival Goodman, William Harrison and Max Abramovitz, and Minoru Yamasaki. Beyond the architecture, the films also reveal how the distinct characteristics of Jewish communities from New York to Texas to California manifested in the diverse architectural expression evident in the films. An interactive touchscreen in the gallery allows visitors select the film they would like to see projected.

770 Named ‘Unofficial’ Brooklyn Landmark

http://crownheights.info/chabad-news/480925/770-named-unofficial-brooklyn-landmark/
From Wikipedia,
A Chabad house is a centre for disseminating Traditional Judaism by the Chabad movement. Chabad Houses are run by a ChabadShaliach (emissary), his wife and family. They are located in cities and on or near college campuses.
The first Chabad house for university students was opened in March 1969 at the University of California, Los Angeles by RabbiShlomo Cunin. Cunin had been sent to Los Angeles in 1965 by Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson to lay the groundwork for the organization’s West Coast activities.[1] In 1972 Cunin opened additional Chabad houses at the University of California, Berkeley andUniversity of California, San Diego.[2] By 2003, Cunin had overseen the establishment of nearly 100 Chabad houses in California.[1]
In a Chabad house, the Shaliach and Shalucha (rabbi and his wife) host programs, activities, and services for the local Jewish community and for tourists.[3]

Alfred A. Knopf

From Wikipedia,
Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. (pronounced /kəˈnɒf/, with an audible k and silent p) is a New York publishing house that was founded by Alfred A. Knopf Sr. in 1915. It was acquired by Random House in 1960 and is now part of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group.[1]

Random House has been owned since its 2013 merger of Penguin Group by Penguin Random House, a joint venture between Bertelsmann (53%) and Pearson PLC (47%).
Knopf was founded in 1915 and officially incorporated in 1918, with Alfred Knopf as president, Blanche Knopf as vice-president, and Samuel Knopf as treasurer. Blanche and Alfred traveled abroad regularly and were known for publishing European, Asian, and Latin American writers in addition to leading American literary trends. Samuel Knopf died in 1932. William A. Koshland joined the company in 1934, and worked with the firm for more than fifty years, rising to take the positions of President and Chairman of the Board. Blanche became President in 1957 when Alfred became Chairman of the Board, and worked steadily for the firm until her death in 1966. Alfred Knopf retired in 1972, becoming chairman emeritus of the firm until his death in 1984.

Dr. Marvin Minsky — Immortal minds are a matter of time

Dr. Marvin Minsky — A.I. Pioneer & Mind Theorist. Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, MIT, Media Labhttp://GF2045.com/speakers. Widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost experts and pioneers of Artificial Intelligence. Toshiba Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, and Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at M.I.T. His research led to advances in mathematics, neural and computer science, physics, psychology, computer graphics, symbolic mathematical computation, neural networks, knowledge representation, computational semantics, machine perception, symbolic learning and connectionist learning. In this video Dr. Marvin Minsky discusses the future of human minds, possibility of overcoming death and invites participants to the second international Global Future 2045 congress (June 2013)http://www.GF2045.com. “Everything is made of atoms, and so if you make a machine, in some sense it’s made of the same kinds of material as brains are made, but organized, maybe either in very different ways, or fundamentally the same ways. No one knows very much about how the brain represents knowledge and does reasoning at the moment, so it’s hard to predict how long it will take to do things like that. At some point, when we understand how brains work, then we should be able to make functional copies out of other materials.” “When will all these great things happen, of overcoming death and making people more intelligent and turning ourselves into machines with replaceable parts, so that suffering and that sort of thing will disappear? It’s very hard to predict, but my impression is that progress has been slowing down rather rapidly in the last few decades, and that in the early days of cybernetics, from 1940 to 1980, we were learning more and more about the brain very rapidly, and contrary to many current opinions, I think we’re learning less and less in recent years.” says Dr. Marvin Minsky For more information about the GF2045 congress, please visit http://www.GF2045.com This Day in Jewish History / Ultimate ‘court Jew’ to the king of Austria dies Haaretz http://www.haaretz.com/beta/1.669716 This Day in Jewish History / Ultimate ‘court Jew’ to the king of Austria dies.

Samson Wertheimer

From Wikipedia Samson Wertheimer (January 17, 1658 – August 6, 1724) was chief rabbi of Hungary and Moravia, and rabbi of Eisenstadt. He was also an Austrian financier, court Jew and Shtadlan to Austrian Emperor Leopold I. Wertheimer was born in Worms, the son of Joseph Josel Wertheimer (1626 – May 2, 1713), and received his education at the yeshivas ofWorms and Frankfurt am Main.

This day in Jewish history / ‘Dr. Strangelove’ premieres. By David B. Green | Jan. 29, 2013 | 8:57 AM. On July 24, 1980, the comic actor Peter Sellers …
Peter Sellers, CBE (born Richard Henry Sellers; 8 September 1925 – 24 July 1980) was a British film actor, comedian and singer. He performed in the BBC Radio comedy series The Goon Show, featured on a number of hit comic songs and became known to a world-wide audience through his many film characterisations, among them Chief Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther series of films.
Sellers was born on 8 September 1925, in Southsea, a suburb of Portsmouth. His parents were Yorkshire-born William “Bill” Sellers (1900–62) and Agnes Doreen “Peg” (née Marks, 1892–1967). Both were variety entertainers; Peg was in the Ray Sisters troupe.[3] Although christened Richard Henry, his parents called him Peter, after his elder stillborn brother.[4] Sellers remained an only child.[5] Peg Sellers was related to the pugilist Daniel Mendoza (1764–1836), whom Sellers greatly revered, and whose engraving later hung in his office. At one time Sellers planned to use Mendoza’s image for his production company’s logo. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

This Day in Jewish History / Irgun blows up British headquarters at King David Hotel The Irgun, headed by Menachem Begin, tried to warn the British to evacuate the King David in advance. But nobody listened, and 91 people died. http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/this-day-in-jewish-history/.premium-1.667111 King David Hotel bombing From Wikipedia, The King David Hotel bombing was an terrorist attack carried out on Monday July 22, 1946 by the militant Zionist underground organization, the Irgun, on the British administrative headquarters for Palestine, which was housed in the southern wing[1] of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.[2][3][4] 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured.[5] The hotel was the site of the central offices of the British Mandatory authorities of Palestine, principally the Secretariat of the Government of Palestine and the Headquarters of the British Armed Forces in Palestine and Transjordan.[5][6] The attack initially had the approval of the Haganah (the principal Jewish paramilitary group in Palestine). It was conceived as a response to Operation Agatha (a series of widespread raids, including one on the Jewish Agency, conducted by the British authorities) and was the deadliest directed at the British during the Mandate era (1920–1948) Photo by Wikipedia read more… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_David_Hotel_bombing

Palestine 1946: King David Hotel Bomb Warning Controversy

The King David Hotel bombing (July 22, 1946) was a bomb attack against the British Mandate government of Palestine and its armed forces by members of the Irgun, a militant Zionist organization, which was led at the time by Menachem Begin, a future Prime Minister of Israel. Members of the Irgun, commanded by Yosef Avni and Yisrael Levi [1] and dressed as ‘Arabs’ and as the Hotel’s distinctive Sudanese waiters, planted a bomb in the basement of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, part of which was being used as the base for the Mandate Secretariat, the British military headquarters and a branch of the police Criminal Investigation Division. The ensuing explosion caused the collapse of the south-western corner of the southern wing of the hotel. 91 people were killed, most of them staff of the secretariat and the hotel: 28 British, 41 Arab, 17 Jewish, and 5 others. Around 45 people were injured. Some of the deaths and injuries occurred in the road outside the hotel and in adjacent buildings. The attack on the hotel was the deadliest attack against the British in the history of the Mandate and is often credited as being a major factor in the British decision to relinquish the Mandate. If classed as terrorism, the attack was the most cowardly & deadliest of that kind anywhere in the world. Prime Minister Clement Attlee commented on the attack to the House of Commons: Hon. Members will have learned with horror of the brutal and murderous crime committed yesterday in Jerusalem. Of all the outrages which have occurred in Palestine against the Arabs, and they have been many and horrible in the last few months, this is the worst. By this insane act of terrorism 93 innocent people have been killed or are missing in the ruins. The latest figures of casualties are 41 dead, 52 missing and 53 injured. I have no further information at present beyond what is contained in the following official report received from Jerusalem: “It appears that after exploding a bomb in the street, presumably as a diversionary measure — this did virtually no damage — a lorry drove up to the tradesmen’s entrance of the King David Hotel and the occupants, after holding up the staff at pistol point, entered the kitchen premises carrying a number of milk cans. At some stage of the proceedings, they shot and seriously wounded a British soldier who attempted to interfere with them. All available information so far is to the effect that they were Jews. Somewhere in the basement of the hotel they planted bombs which went off shortly afterwards. They appear to have made good their escape.” The Zionist Irgun issued an initial statement accepting responsibility for the attack, blaming the British for the deaths due to failure to respond to the warning and mourning only the Jewish victims. A year later, on July 22, 1947, they issued a new statement saying that they were acting on instructions from “a letter from the headquarters of the United Resistance, demanding that we carry out an attack on the British at the King David Hotel as soon as possible.” In July 2006, Israelis including former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former members of Irgun attended a 60th anniversary celebration of the bombing, which was organized by the Menachem Begin Centre. The British Ambassador in Tel Aviv and the Consul-General in Jerusalem dissented, saying “We do not think that it is right for an act of terrorism, which led to the loss of so many lives, to be commemorated.” They also protested against an Israeli plaque that claims that people died because the British ignored warning calls, saying it was untrue and “did not absolve those who planted the bomb.” The plaque read “For reasons known only to the British, the hotel was not evacuated.” City officials agreed to amend the wording on the plaque?

The Seventeenth of Tammuz (Hebrew: שבעה עשר בתמוז‎, Shiv’ah Asar b’Tammuz) is a Jewish fast day commemorating the breach of the walls of Jerusalem before the destruction of the Second Temple.[1] It falls on the 17th day of the Hebrew month of Tammuz and marks the beginning of the three-week mourning period leading up to Tisha B’Av.[2] This day also commemorates the destruction of the Twin Tablets of the Ten Commandments. The Seventeenth of Tammuz occurs forty days after the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Moses ascended Mount Sinai on Shavuot and remained there for forty days. The Children of Israel made the Golden Calf on the afternoon of the sixteenth of Tammuz when it seemed that Moses was not coming down when promised. Moses descended the next day (forty days by his count), saw that the Israelites were violating many of the laws he had received from God, and smashed the tablets.[3]Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Abraham “Abe” Cahan (July 7, 1860 – August 31, 1951) was a Belarusian-born Jewish-American socialist newspaper editor, novelist, and politician.[1],,, Abraham Cahan was born July 7, 1860, in Podberezhie in Belarus (at the time in Vilnius Governorate, Russian Empire), into an orthodox Litvak family. His grandfather was a rabbi in Vidz, Vitebsk, his father a teacher of Hebrew language and the Talmud. The devoutly religious family moved in 1866 to Vilnius, where the young Cahan received the usual Jewish preparatory education for the rabbinate. He, however, was attracted by secular knowledge and clandestinely studied the Russian language, ultimately prevailing on his parents to allow him to enter the Teachers Institute of Vilnius, from which he was graduated in 1881. He was appointed teacher in a Jewish government school in Velizh, Vitebsk, in the same year.[2] Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Abe Cahan Exhibit

We had the opportunity to check out the Forward’s exhibit of its founder Abe Cahan. It is an amazing exhibit showcasing the beginning of The Forward. During his years of activity, Cahan was either originator, collaborator, or editor of almost all the earlier socialist periodicals published in that language in the United States.Abraham Cahan in his later years. From 1903 until 1946, Cahan ran the Jewish Daily Forward (Forverts), a socialist Yiddish-language daily in New York. In 1906 he introduced an advice column named A Bintel Brief. As a rule, Cahan was one of the more temperate voices in the Socialist Party of America, respecting his readers’ religious beliefs and preaching an increasingly moderate version of the socialist gospel as time progressed. By 1924 Forverts had over a quarter of a million readers, making it the most successful non-English-language newspaper in the U.S. and the leading Yiddish paper in the world. Cahan quickly mastered the English language, and four years after his arrival in New York taught immigrants in one of the evening schools. Later he began to contribute articles to the Sun and other newspapers printed in English, and was for several years employed in a literary capacity by the Commercial Advertiser, where we was a regular contributor.

Law of Return

From Wikipedia The Law of Return (Hebrew: חֹוק הַשְׁבוּת, ḥok ha-shvūt) is Israeli legislation, passed on 5 July 1950, that gives Jews the right of return and the right to live in Israel and to gain citizenship.[1] In 1970, the right of entry and settlement was extended to people of Jewish ancestry, and their spouses. The Law of Return 5710-1950 was enacted by the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, on July 5, 1950.[2] The Law declares the right of Jews to come to Israel: “Every Jew has the right to come to this country as an oleh.” Follow-up legislation on immigration matters was contained in the Nationality Law of 1952. The Law of Return was modified in 1970 to extend the right of return to non-Jews with a Jewish grandparent, and their spouses. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Youth Aliyah (Hebrew: עלית הנוער, Aliyat Hano’ar) is a Jewish organization that rescued thousands of Jewish children from the Nazis during the Third Reich. Youth Aliyah arranged for their resettlement in Palestine in kibbutzim and youth villages that became both home and school. Recha Freier, a rabbi’s wife, founded Youth Aliyah in Berlin on the same day that Adolf Hitler took power, Monday 30 January 1933. The organisation was founded to protect German Jewish youth from the impending Holocaust by sending them to pioneer training programs in Palestine after completing elementary school. The idea was supported by the World Zionist Organization. Freier supervised the organization’s activities in Germany, and Henrietta Szold in Jerusalem. Israeli postage stamps celebrating Youth Aliyah Youth Aliyah by ship Youth Aliyah by plane (“Flying Carpet”) Szold was skeptical about the merits of Freier’s proposal because, as the person responsible for social services by the Jewish Agency for all of Palestine, she was extremely pressed for funds and loath to take on a new untried program for German Jewish children.

The fast of the 17th of Tammuz occurred this year on July 15. The five tragic events listed in the Talmud as having happened on this day can be seen as representing concentric circles, each one at a greater distance from the center of holiness. We pray that with Divine guidance we will be privileged to rebuild what we have lost.

Moshe Feldenkrais.pngMoshé Feldenkrais

From Wikipedia, Moshé Pinchas Feldenkrais (Hebrew: משה פנחס פלדנקרייז, May 6, 1904 – July 1, 1984) was an Israeli physicist and the founder of the Feldenkrais Method, designed to improve human functioning by increasing self-awareness through movement. Feldenkrais was born in the Russian Empire (present-day Ukraine) city of Slavuta. In 1918, he left his family, then living in Baranovichi, Belarus, to emigrate to Palestine.[1] There he worked as a laborer before obtaining his high-school diploma in 1925. After graduation, he worked as a cartographer for the British survey office. During his time in Palestine he began his studies of self-defense, including Ju-Jitsu. A soccer injury in 1929 would later figure into the development of his method.[2] Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais

Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais beschrieb seine Arbeit so: “Wie kann das Unmögliche möglich, das Mögliche leicht und das Leichte angenehm und elegant werden”. In den Kursen und Einzelstunden finden Sie einen wohlwollenden und guten Kontakt mit sich. In dieser Aufmerksamkeit erforschen wir unsere Bewegungsmöglichkeiten, Einschränkungen und manchmal auch Schmerzen. In einem bewussten Prozess des Spielens mit Bewegungsvariationen entsteht organisches Lernen. d.h. Bewegungsmuster die zu Verspannung und Schmerz führen werden erkannt und neue leichte, angenehme Formen der Bewegung und des Handels entwickelt.

Today is the birthday of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn of Lubavitch (1880-1950). This is also the day on which he was liberated from exile to the Soviet 47 years later.Living Torah

Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn

From Wikipedia, File:FrierdigerRebbePassportPic.jpgYosef Yitzchak (Joseph Isaac)[1] Schneersohn (Hebrew: יוסף יצחק שניאורסאהן‎) was an Orthodox rabbi and the sixth Rebbe (spiritual leader) of the Chabad Lubavitch chasidic movement. He is also known as the Frierdiker Rebbe (Yiddish for “Previous Rebbe”), the Rebbe RaYYaTz, or the Rebbe Rayatz (an acronym for Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak). After many years of fighting to keep Orthodox Judaism alive from within the Soviet Union, he was forced to leave; he continued to conduct the struggle from Latvia, and then Poland, and eventually the United States, where he spent the last ten years of his life. Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn was born in Lyubavichi, Mogilev Governorate, Russian Empire (present-day Smolensk Oblast, Russia), the only son of Rabbi Sholom Dovber Schneersohn (the Rebbe Rashab), the fifth Rebbe of Chabad. He was appointed as his father’s personal secretary at the age of fifteen; in that year, he represented his father in the conference of communal leaders in Kovno. The following year (1896) he participated in the Vilna Conference, where Rabbis and community leaders discussed issues such as: genuine Jewish education; permission for Jewish children not to attend public school on Shabbat; the creation of a united Jewish organization for the purpose of strengthening Judaism. He participated in this conference again in 1908.

This Day in Jewish History / The rabbi who saved the Dachau survivors passes away Haaretz

On June 28, 2007, Abraham J. Klausner, the rabbi who in the days and years following the liberation of Dachau did so much to assist the survivors .

Abraham Klausner

From Wikipedia Abraham Judah Klausner (April 27, 1915 – June 28, 2007) was a Reform rabbi and United States Army captain and chaplain who became a “father figure” for the more than 30,000 emaciated survivors found at Dachau Concentration Camp, 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Munich, shortly after it was liberated on April 29, 1945. He also cared for thousands more left homeless in camps as the victorious Allied Forces determined where they should go. Following ordination, Klausner joined the army and served as a chaplain at the Lawson General Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Klausner eventually shipped out to Germany and was assigned to join the 116th Evacuation Hospital, which had just entered Dachau. The 116th Evacuation Hospital arrived at Dachau, which was 10 miles northwest of Munich, in May 1945, three weeks after the camp had been liberated on April 29, 1945. While Rabbi Eli Bohnen was the first Jewish chaplain in the United States Army to arrive at the Dachau concentration camp after its liberation, Bohnen’s unit remained only a short time. Rabbi Klausner arrived soon after. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia Klausner photographed in 1945 .

From Wikipedia, Chaim Grade (April 4, 1910, in Vilnius, Lithuania (at the time occupied by the Russian Empire) – April 26, 1982, Los Angeles, California, buried in Riverside Cemetery, Saddle Brook, NJ [1]) was one of the leading Yiddish writers of the twentieth century. Grade was raised Orthodox-leaning, and he studied in yeshiva as a teenager, but ended up secular, in part from his poetic ambitions. Losing his family in the Holocaust, he resettled in New York, and increasingly took to fiction, writing in Yiddish. Initially he was reluctant to have his work translated.[1][2] He was praised by Elie Wiesel as “one of the great—if not the greatest—of living Yiddish novelists.

Al Schwimmer – 1917-2011

Al (Adolph) Schwimmer, one of the founders of the Israel Air Force and the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and an Israel Prize laureate, died, Friday. He was 94. Schwimmer, an American citizen, was born in New York in 1917. An aeronautics graduate and a licensed pilot, he served in the US Air Force during WWII, and was awarded a medal of valor. In 1947 he volunteered to help the Haganah paramilitary group to acquire aircraft. Schwimmer formed an aviation company, purchased war surpluses and smuggled them to Israel via then-Czechoslovakia. In 1950, however, he was convicted by US authorities of violating the UN imposed embargo for smuggling the planes. He was stripped of his rights, but not imprisoned. In 2001 he was pardoned by then President Bill Clinton. “Ordered” by Israeli PM, David Ben-Gurion to leave the USA and start an aircraft overhauling facility in Israel, Schwimmer came to Israel and founded ‘Bedek National Aviation Institute’ – later to become the IAI. He served as the technological advisor to the prime minister in two different governments in the 1970s, and founded the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Israel Institute of Technology. In 2006 he was awarded the Israel Prize for his contributions to Israeli society.

S.N. Behrman, a child of Orthodox, Lithuanian immigrants, discovered a knack for knocking the higher classes, which he did with brilliant wit. By David ..

S. N. Behrman

From Wikipedia Samuel Nathaniel Behrman (June 9, 1893 – September 9, 1973) was an American playwright, screenwriter, biographer, and longtime writer for for The New Yorker.  Behrman’s family immigrated from what is now Lithuania to the United States, where Samuel Nathaniel Behrman was born, the youngest of three sons, in a tenement in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1893.[1] His parents spoke little English, and his father was a Talmudic scholar. (Though known for his sophisticated comedies and worldly characters, Behrman fondly dramatized his family-centered, impoverished childhood in one of his last plays, the 1958 The Cold Wind and the Warm, an autobiographical drama starring Eli Wallach, Maureen Stapleton, and Morris Carnovsky.[2]) His own path, however, took him far from the Orthodox world of his parents. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Perhaps Yakov Sverdlov’s stint as top Bolshevik was dimmed in memory by his untimely death at age 33, under very mysterious circumstances indeed …

Yakov Sverdlov ☭

Yakov Sverdlov, Bolshevik activist. *** http://www.marxists.org/archive/trots… “AN IMPERIOUS CHAIRMAN Sverdlov had to preside a great deal. He was Chairman of many bodies and at many meetings. He was an imperious Chairman. Not in the sense that he shut off discussion, or curbed the speakers, and so on. Not at all. On the contrary, he never quibbled or insisted on formalities. His imperiousness as Chairman consisted in this, that he always knew exactly what practical decision was before the body; he understood who would speak, what would be said, and why; he was quite familiar with the backstage aspects of the issue — and every big and complex issue has its own backstage; he was adept at giving the floor in time to speakers who were needed; he knew how to put the proposition to a vote in time; he knew what could be carried and he was able to carry what he wanted. These traits of his as Chairman were bound up indissolubly with all his qualities as a practical leader, with his ability to appraise people in the flesh, realistically, with his inexhaustible inventiveness in the field of organizational and personnel combinations. During stormy sessions he was adept at permitting the assembly to become noisy and let off steam; and then at the proper moment he would intervene to restore order with a firm hand and a metallic voice. Sverdlov was of medium height, of dark complexion, thin and gaunt; his face, lean; his features, angular. His powerful and even mighty voice might have seemed out of consonance with his physique. To an even greater degree this might be said of his character. But such an impression could be only fleeting. And then the physical image became fused with the spiritual. Nor is this all, for this gaunt figure with its calm unconquerable and inflexible will and with its powerful but not flexible voice would then stand forth as a finished image. “Nichevo,” Valdimir Ilyich would sometimes say in a difficult situation. “Sverdlov will tell them about it in his Sverdlovian bass and the matter will be settled …” In these words there was affectionate irony. In the initial post-October period the Communists were, as is well-known, called “leatherites,” by our enemies, because of the way in which we dressed. I believe that Sverdlov”s example played a major role in introducing the leather “uniform” among us. At all events he invariably walked around encased in leather from head to toe, from his leather cap to his leather boots. This costume, which somehow corresponded with the character of those days, radiated far and wide from him, as the central organizational figure. Comrades who knew Sverdlov in the underground days remember a different Sverdlov. But in my memory Sverdlov remains clothed in leather as in an armor grown black under the blows of the first years of the Civil War. We were gathered at a session of the Political Bureau when Sverdlov, who was burning up with fever at home, took a turn for the worse. E.D. Stassova, the then Secretary of the Central Committee, came in during the session. She had come from Sverdlov”s apartment. Her face was unrecognizable. “Jacob Mikhailovich feels poorly, very poorly,” she said. A glance at her sufficed to understand that there was no hope. We cut the session short. Vladimir Ilyich went to Sverdlov”s apartment, and I left for the Commissariat to prepare to depart immediately to the front. In about 15 minutes a phone call came from Lenin, who said in that special muted voice which meant great strain: “He is gone.” “He is gone.” “He is gone.” For a while each of us held the receiver in our hands and each could feel the silence at the other end. Then we hung up. There was nothing more to say. Jacob Mikhailovich was gone. Sverdlov was no longer among us.” March 13, 1925

He was widely considered to be the world’s preeminent[1][2][3] scholar of the Holocaust, and his three-volume, 1,273-page magnum opus, The Destruction of the European Jews, is regarded as a seminal study of the Nazi Final Solution. Hilberg was born to a Polish–Romanian Jewish family in Vienna, Austria. Hilberg was very much a loner, pursuing solitary hobbies such as geography, music and train spotting.[4] Though his parents attended synagogue on occasion, he personally found the irrationality of religion repellent and developed an allergy to it. He did however attend a Zionist school in Vienna, which inculcated the necessity of defending against, rather than surrendering to, the rising menace of Nazism  .Read More Button--orangePhoto by Wikipedia

Described as “gentle and courageous” and “intensely secretive”, Wilfrid Israel avoided public office and shunned publicity, but had, according to his biographer Naomi Shepherd, an “almost hypnotic” ability to influence friends and colleagues. Martin Buber described him as “a man of great moral stature, dedicated to the service of others”.[1] He was killed when his civilian passenger plane, en route from Lisbon to Bristol, was shot down by a Luftwaffe fighter patrol over the Bay of Biscay.Read More Button--orangePhoto by Wikipedia

Eli Cohen tried and executed as Israeli spy in 1965.

In the early 1960’s Eli Cohen became a spy for Israel. Posing as a wealthy Arabic businessman, he gained the confidence of many prominent government officials in Syria. Cohen learned many military secrets before he was caught, tortured and executed in 1965. Two years later during the Six Day War, Israel used Cohen’s information to easily defeat the overconfident Syrian army. One of his brilliant feats was to recommended that trees be planted to shade the soldiers’ outposts. The Israeli army then knew the exact location of every one of them because of the trees. To this day his body is still in Syria. His widow has been campaigning for its release and return but stated that it should not in exchange for freeing terrorists.

Jerusalem Day

From Wikipedia, Jerusalem Day (Hebrew: יום ירושלים‎, Yom Yerushalayim) is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalemand the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. The day is officially marked by state ceremonies and memorial services. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to mark the regaining of access to the Western Wall.[1] While the day has lost its significance for most secular Israelis,[2][3][4] the day is still very much celebrated by Israel’s Religious Zionist community[5][6] with parades and additional prayers in the synagogue.Under International Law, in the San Remo agreement in 1920, Jerusalem and Israel was given to the Jews for a homeland and is therefor still legally Jewish land[7] . Under the 1947 UN Partition Plan, which proposed the establishment of two states in the British Mandate of Palestine—a Jewish state and an Arab state—Jerusalem was to be an international city, neither exclusively Arab nor Jewish for a period of ten years Read More Button--orangePhotos by Wikipedia

Vom Wiener Lehrling zum Friedensnobelpreisträger

11.04.2012 (c) Andreas H. Landl für friedensnews.at: AK Präsident Herbert Tumpel erwies Wiens Friedensnobelpreisträger die Ehre. Tumpels Vater war Esperantist und ein Mann er Lettern, sprich gelernter Drucker wie der Friedensnobelpreisträger. Tumpel ist ein Anliegen, dass die von den Nazis verbrannten Bücher der Pazifisten in Österreich wieder zugänglich gemacht werden. Denn was nicht gedruckt vorliegt ist nicht zugänglich und kann tot geschwiegen werden. Ab jetzt wir “zurückgedruckt”, denn: Im Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten schaffte ein Bursche aus elendigen Verhältnissen eine Karriere mit Lehre. Er wurde der einzige Wiener Friedensnobelpreisträger. Bis 2006 war das in Wien kaum jemandem bekannt. Denn der war Freidenker aus einer jüdischen Familie, Pazifist, Gewerkschafter, Friedensjournalist, Internationalist und Freimauerer. Soviel Friedensengagement war natürlich für die Militaristen im deutschsprachigen Raum ab 1914 zuviel des Guten. Fried und seine Werke wurden bekämpft. Er musste zweimal fliehen. Einmal aus Österreich und einmal aus Bayern. Rechtsextreme aller Couleur säuberten die Bibliotheken in vier Wellen von seinen Werken. So kam es, dass selbst Friedensbeweger wie ich oder Herbert Tumpel der Präsident der Arbeiterkammer bis 2006 nichts über den Wiener Friedensnobelpreisträger wussten. Walter Göhring stieß bei der Recherche über Ferdinand Hanusch auf den Wiener Friedensnobelpreisträger und macht erstmals 2006 breiter publik, was fast vollkommen verdrängt war. Am 11.04.2012 18:00 Uhr gab es eine hochkarätige Veranstaltung des Instituts für Gewerkschafts- und AK Geschichte und derAlfred Hermann Fried Gesellschaft Löcker Verlag in der AK Bibiliothek in Wien. “Zwei Mal in der Geschichte ging der begehrte Friedensnobelpreis auch an ÖsterreicherInnen: 1905 an Bertha von Suttner (1843-1914) und 1911 an Alfred Hermann Fried (1864-1921). Die Leistungen des Friedensnobelpreisträgers Alfred Hermann Fried standen lange Zeit im Schatten Bertha von Suttners. Vielfach unbekannt ist, dass Fried * als Buchhandelslehrling eine Jugendgewerkschaft gründete, die in die Gewerkschaft der Kaufmännischen Angestellten mündete, eine der Vorläufer organisationen der heutigen GPA-djp. * Ab 1892 gab er gemeinsam mit Bertha von Suttner die pazifistische Zeitschrift „Die Waffen nieder!” heraus, in der er u.a. seine pazifistischen Ideen artikulierte. Dass Fried damit zu den Vorkämpfern der europäischen Friedensbewegung gehörte, ist heute ebenfalls vielfach vergessen: mit seiner Zeitschrift “Die Friedenswarte” schuf Fried ein Organ, in dem die Ideen für ein neues demokratisch geeintes Europa ihren Niederschlag fanden. Der Zeithistoriker Walter Göhring hat sich in Archiven und Bibliotheken in der Schweiz, in den USA, den Niederlanden, Ungarn, der Slowakei und Österreich auf die Spuren Alfred Hermann Frieds begeben. Ergebnis dieser Spurensuche sind Publikationen und Beiträge sowie eine Ausstellung über Alfred Hermann Fried, der mit seinen Arbeiten bis in die Gründung der UNO und der Europäischen Union hineingewirkt hat. Sein Werk ist heute aktueller denn je.”

Alfred Hermann Fried

From Wikipedia, Alfred Hermann Fried (11 November 1864 – 5 May 1921) was an Austrian Jewish pacifist, publicist, journalist, co-founder of the German peace movement, and winner (with Tobias Asser) of the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1911. Born in Vienna, Austria-Hungary, Fried left school at the age of 15 and started to work in a bookshop. In 1883 he moved to Berlin, where he opened a bookshop of his own in 1887. Following the publication by Bertha von Suttner of Die Waffen nieder! (Lay Down Your Arms) in 1889, he and von Suttner began in 1892 to print a magazine of the same name. In articles published within Die Waffen nieder! and its successor, Die Friedenswarte (The Peace Watch), he articulated his pacifist philosophy. Read More Button--orangePhotos by  Wikipedia  This Day in Jewish History / A trailblazing female archaeologist dies Hetty Goldman wanted to write novels but thought she had ‘nothing to say.’ Then she discovered human history – and war.

CEMENTERIO JUDIO DE PRAGA

El cementerio judío se ubica en el distrito de Josefor de Praga y se creó en 1439. El poeta y erudito Avigdor Karo fue la primera persona enterrada en este lugar. El cementerio estuvo activo hasta 1787, cuando fue clausurado definitivamente con la tumba de Moses Beck. Debido a la falta de espacio los cuerpos se enterraban unos encima de otros llegando a más de 11 capas de enterramientos. Cientos de nombres célebres descansan en este lugar, como el sabio del Renacimiento, historiador, matemático y astrónomo David Gans (d.1613), o el erudito e historiador José Salomón Delmedigo (d.1655), y el rabino y coleccionista de manuscritos y libros impresos en hebreo David Oppenheim (m. 1736). Aunque sin duda el más conocido de todos es el gran erudito y maestro religioso Judá Loew ben Bezalel, conocido como el rabino Loew (d. 1609), que se asocia con la leyenda del Golem, un muñeco de barro creado por Loew para defender a los judíos de Praga, pero que enloqueció y no pudo cumplir su tarea.A día de hoy se pueden ver más de 12.000 lápidas y se estima que puede haber enterradas unas 100.000 personas

Kurt Waldheim, a commission of enquiry parts 1-9

These nine films are part of a much larger programme that was aired in 1988 which looks into allegations that the recently elected president of Austria Kurt Waldheim was a Nazi war criminal. Waldheim had previously been the fourth Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981. I do not possess any more of this programme which I ‘rediscovered’ in 2008 on a VHS cassette used some 20 years earlier. Waldheim had unsuccessfully sought election as President of Austria in 1971, but his second attempt on 8 June 1986 proved successful. During his campaign for the presidency in 1985, the events started that marked the beginning of what became known internationally as the “Waldheim Affair”. Before the presidential elections, Alfred Worm revealed in the Austrian weekly news magazine Profil that there had been several omissions about Waldheim’s life between 1938 and 1945 in his recently-published autobiography. A short time later, the World Jewish Congress alleged that Waldheim had lied about his service as an officer in the mounted corps of the SA, and his time as an ordnance officer for Army Group E in Saloniki, Greece, from 1942 to 1943 based in files from the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Waldheim called the allegations “pure lies and malicious acts”. Nevertheless he admitted that he had known about German reprisals against partisans: “Yes, I knew. I was horrified. But what could I do? I had either to continue to serve or be executed.” He said that he had never fired a shot or even seen a partisan. His former immediate superior at the time stated that Waldheim had “remained confined to a desk”. Part of the reason for the controversy was Austria’s refusal to address its national role in the Holocaust – which was the home not only of Adolf Hitler but also many other leading Nazis. Austria refused to pay compensation to Nazi victims and from 1970 onwards refused to investigate Austrian citizens who were senior Nazis. Because the revelations leading to the Waldheim affair came shortly before the presidential election there has been speculation about the background of the affair. Declassified CIA documents show that the CIA had been aware of his war time past since 1945. Some sources report information about Waldheim’s wartime past was also previously published by a right wing Austrian newspaper during the 1971 presidential election campaign – including the claim of an SS membership.

Bergen-Belsen concentration camp

From Wikipedia, Bergen-Belsen (or Belsen) was a Nazi concentration camp in what is today Lower Saxony in northern Germany, southwest of the town of Bergen near Celle. Originally established as a prisoner of war camp,[1] in 1943, parts of it became a concentration camp. Initially this was an “exchange camp”, where Jewish hostages were held with the intention of exchanging them for German prisoners of war held overseas.[2] The camp was later expanded to accommodate Jews from other concentration camps.

Bergen Belsen Liberation

Bergen-Belsen was a Nazi concentration camp in Lower Saxony in northwestern Germany, southwest of the town of Bergen near Celle. Between 1943 and the war’s end, an estimated 50,000 Russian Prisoners of War and a further 50,000 inmates died there,up to 35,000 of them dying of typhus in the first few months of 1945. The camp was liberated on April 15, 1945 by the British 11th Armoured Division.60,000 prisoners were found inside, most of them seriously ill, and another 13,000 corpses lay around the camp unburied.When the British and Canadians advanced on Bergen-Belsen in 1945, the German army negotiated a truce and exclusion zone around the camp to prevent the spread of typhus. Under the agreement, Hungarian and regular German troops guarding the camp returned to German lines when Allied troops liberated the camp on April 15, 1945.

Nazi Experiment Survivor Eva Mozes Kor Speaks at Clarkson University

Auschwitz survivor Eva Mozes Kor delivered a powerful message of forgiveness on October 8 at Clarkson University, while speaking before a large audience of students, faculty, staff and community members. When she was about 10 years old, Kor and her family were taken by the Nazis to the Auschwitz slave labor and extermination camp, where her parents and two older sisters were quickly sent to the gas chambers. Kor and her sister, Miriam, were twins, so they were of chilling interest to Dr. Josef Mengele, who subjected them to a series of heinous human experiments. Her talk, “The Journey from Auschwitz & Mengele to Forgiveness,” told the amazing story of what she endured and how she eventually came to forgive Mengele and the Nazis. Sheila Faith Weiss, professor of history in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Clarkson, arranged for Kor to share her story. “I received a $277,000 National Science Foundation grant to write a biography of Dr. Mengele’s mentor, the German human geneticist Baron Otmar von Verschuer, and I had been in contact with Eva Mozes Kor,” Weiss says. “Because I am teaching a seminar on the Holocaust this semester, I asked Eva whether she might be willing to give a lecture at Clarkson. Normally, she would have charged more for her talk, but generously agreed to accept significantly less so we could bring her here. Her message is especially important for our students to hear.” Trained in German history and the history of biology, Weiss has written a book which explores the background that led to the kind of bestial human experimentation Kor was subjected to in Auschwitz. The Nazi Symbiosis, Human Genetics and Politics in the Third Reich (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010) raises compelling questions about medicine and ethics.

Exodus 1947 Documentary Film narrated by Morley Safer. Filmmakers: Elizabeth Rodgers & Robby Henson. PBS broadcast. To buy the DVD, please go to http://www.exodus1947.com After World War II, a group of private American citizens banded together in a clandestine effort to transport Holocaust survivors to Palestine. On July 11, 1947, in the port of Sête, France, 4,500 Jewish refugees were crammed into the hull of a decrepit steamship, later named Exodus 1947. A British blockade intercepted Exodus 1947 in international waters off the coast of Palestine. The tense standoff culminated in a direct attack by military personnel against the unarmed civilians on the Exodus 1947. This highly publicized international incident heavily influenced the United Nations resolution authorizing the partitioning of Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states. Thus, the Exodus 1947 voyage acted as a catalyst in forming a new nation. The program focuses on clandestine and illegal American efforts to finance and crew the most infamous of ten American ships that attempted to bring Jewish refugees to Palestine. EXODUS 1947 is a one hour documentary narrated by Morley Safer with a score by Ilan Rechtman. The film is a richly layered program, constructed with first person accounts to recall events that shaped world history.

Edna Ferber – Long Distance

12.12.2014 Edna Ferber (August 15, 1885 – April 16, 1968) was an American novelist, short story writer and playwright. Her novels were especially popular and included the Pulitzer Prize-winning So Big (1924), Show Boat (1926; made into the celebrated 1927 musical), Cimarron (1929; made into the 1931 film which won the Academy Award for Best Picture), and Giant (1952; made into the 1956 Hollywood movie). Ferber was born August 15, 1885, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to a Hungarian-born Jewish storekeeper and his Milwaukee, Wisconsin-born wife, Jacob Charles and Julia (Neumann) Ferber. After living in Chicago, Illinois, and Ottumwa, Iowa, at the age of 12 Ferber and her family moved to Appleton, Wisconsin, where she graduated from high school and briefly attended Lawrence University. She took newspaper jobs at the Appleton Daily Crescent and the Milwaukee Journal before publishing her first novel. She covered the 1920 Republican National Convention and 1920 Democratic National Convention for the United Press Association. Ferber’s novels generally featured strong female protagonists, along with a rich and diverse collection of supporting characters. She usually highlighted at least one strong secondary character who faced discrimination ethnically or for other reasons; through this technique, Ferber demonstrated her belief that people are people and that the not-so-pretty persons have the best character. Several theatrical and film productions have been based on her works, including Show Boat, Giant, Ice Palace, Saratoga Trunk, Cimarron (which won an Oscar) and the 1960 remake. Three of these works – Show Boat, Saratoga Trunk and Giant – have been developed into musicals. When composer Jerome Kern proposed turning the very serious Show Boat into a musical, Ferber was shocked, thinking it would be transformed into a typical light entertainment of the 1920s. It was not until Kern explained that he and Oscar Hammerstein II wanted to create a different type of musical that Ferber granted him the rights. Saratoga, based on Saratoga Trunk, was written at a much later date, after serious plots had become acceptable in stage musicals. In 1925, she won the Pulitzer Prize for her book So Big, which was made into a silent film starring Colleen Moore that same year. An early talkie movie remake followed, in 1932, starring Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent, with Bette Davis in a supporting role. A 1953 remake of So Big starred Jane Wyman in the Stanwyck role, and is the version most often seen today.

He formally established the academic discipline and — with Karl Marx and Max Weber — is commonly cited as the principal architect of modern social science and father of sociology.,,,,, Emile Durkheim was born in Épinal in Lorraine, coming from a long line of devout French Jews; his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had been rabbis.[8] He began his education in a rabbinical school, but at an early age, he decided not to follow in his family’s footsteps and switched schools.[8][9] Durkheim led a completely secular life. Much of his work was dedicated to demonstrating that religious phenomena stemmed from social rather than divine factors.Photo by Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

Nathan the Wise

From Wikipedia Nathan the Wise (original German title: Nathan der Weise) is a play published by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing in 1779. It is a fervent plea for religious tolerance. Its performance was forbidden by the church during Lessing’s lifetime; it was first performed in 1783 inBerlin. In 1922 it was adapted into a silent film of the same title. Set in Jerusalem during the Third Crusade, it describes how the wise Jewish merchant Nathan, the enlightened sultan Saladin, and the (initially anonymous) Templar bridge their gaps between Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Its major themes are friendship, tolerance, relativism of God, a rejection of miracles and a need for communication. File:Gottlieb-Recha Welcoming Her Father 1877.jpg   Recha Welcoming Her Father.

Nathan the Wise by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (This Week in Jewish History)

In August of 1778, the non-Jewish writer Gotthold Ephraim Lessing wrote to his brother of a new literary project designed to further tolerance of Jews in German society. The result was Nathan the Wise, a sensation that was initially banned by the Church and heavily criticized by antisemites of the day.

Judaism – My Life, My Religion Episode 4 of 5 – What does it mean to be Jewish? 11-year-old Charlie explains his religion of Judaism in this Learning Zone programme for primary school children.

Charlie is sports mad and thinks the best thing about being Jewish is the food. His family belong to an orthodox synagogue in Manchester. He tries his best to follow the rules of Shabbat, the weekly Jewish day of rest, but admits it can be tempting to switch on his phone and TV. When it comes to the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, he reveals how it feels to be judged by God.

13-year-old Me-Me, short for Amelia, invites the cameras in to her bat mitzvah rehearsal at her Reform synagogue as she prepares to become a Jewish adult. How will she feel about this new chapter of her life?

Meanwhile, ten-year-old Solly and his family recreate Passover Seder night, to remember how the Israelites eventually left slavery in Egypt. Later in the year, he makes traditional Latkas with his mum to celebrate the Jewish Festival of Chanukah.

Collecting Jewish Cultural Treasures in a Post-WWII New York Lobby

15.04.2014 During the summer of 1948, only three years after the end of World War II, Ben Stonehill, a man devoted to Jewish culture, recorded recently-arrived Jewish survivors of the war who were temporarily housed in a hotel in upper Manhattan. The singers included men, women, and children. Stonehill collected over a thousand songs of many kinds: joyful as well as sad, mainly in Yiddish but also in Hebrew, Polish, and Russian. These songs are musical testimonies to the resilience of the survivors, a direct link to pre-war Jewish life in Eastern Europe, and a cultural treasure. The music and chatting that went on in between the songs tell not only of the singers’ terrible traumas but also of their hopes, and reflect the sheer pleasure of reconnecting with others through song. In this talk, Isaacs describes the role of the Library of Congress in preserving this unique musical treasure. She plays some of these almost forgotten recordings and talks about the collector, the singers, and their times. Speaker Biography: Miriam Isaacs is retired affiliate visiting associate professor of Yiddish Language and Culture, University of Maryland College Park. She received her Ph.D., M.A. in Linguistics from Cornell University. She is a native speaker of Yiddish and has language skills in English, French, German, Modern Hebrew and Russian. While in residence in the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, Dr. Isaacs worked on her project entitled, “Oral Culture in Transition: The Legacy of the Benjamin Stonehill Collection.”

Der Lambeth hop (The Lambeth Walk in Yiddish)

26.05.2015 This was sung by George Kessler to Ben Stonehill in the Hotel Marsellaise in the summer of 1948. Stonehill was an amateur ethnomusicologist collecting songs from Jews recently released from DP camps. Some of his songs, including this one, can be found at http://www.ctmd.org/stonehill.htm

Converting to Judaism

04.05.2015 http://to.pbs.org/1AqOBt4 Despite the sometimes lengthy and challenging process—and concerns that converted Jews are not “100 percent” Jewish—many converts find fulfillment and a sense of identity in the Jewish faith. According to Shmuly Yanklowitz, an Orthodox rabbi and himself a convert, Judaism will need to become more inclusive and more accepting of converts to survive in the 21st century.

For My Children? Only The Best

29.07.2015 Parents are never satisfied to provide their children with the minimum, or even the average. For their own needs a father or mother might settle for less, but for their children they want only the greatest and the best they can provide. If this is so with food and clothing, which are quite temporary, how much more so when it comes to a child’s spiritual education, which impacts the rest of his or her entire life.

History of the Jews in Vancouver

Early Jewish settlers were isolated from established Jewish institutions and communities in eastern Canada and the United States. They were also often isolated from each other, scattered across the Greater Vancouver area. As the local cities developed, the Jewish community also grew and expanded beyond the original business districts to spread throughout the area. While some early Jewish settlers ran farms, poultry operations, and sawmills, most tended to work in merchant industries. Many started as street peddlersand worked their way up to running small stores, a few of which grew into retail empires. read more…From Wikipedia,  Stanton Street Shul on Lower East Side in New York City on National Register of Historic Places in New York City foto wikipedia

Yosl Bergner

24.06.2015 Yosl Bergner was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1920 and grew up in Warsaw, Poland. With rampant anti-Semitism in Europe, the Freeland League for Jewish Territorial Colonization was formed in the United States in July 1935, to search for a potential Jewish homeland. Soon afterwards a pastoral firm in Australia offered the League about 16,500 square kilometres (6,400 sq mi) in the Kimberleys, stretching from the north of Western Australia into the Northern Territory. As history showed, the plans went nowhere. But for a time, the Australian idea was at least worth considering. Bergner’s father, Melech Ravitch, became involved in a serious investigation of the Kimberley Plan. In this way the Bergner family moved to Australia. Yosl emigrated to Australia in 1937 and studied in the National Gallery School in Melbourne until the outbreak of War World II. He served for four and a half years in the Australian Army, and later continued his studies at the Art School. In Melbourne from 1937–48, Bergner befriended many of the local artists who now epitomize modern Australian art: Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, John Perceval and Arthur Boyd.[1] Adrian Lawlor moved with his wife to a cottage at Warrandyte, an outer suburb of Melbourne, where they lived for 30 years. Bergner was a frequent visitor at their Warrandyte home. All the men socialized together. Bergner encouraged them to go beyond their traditional landscape style and introduced a more radical concern for working families, thus having an important impact on Australian art. Bergner may not have been prepared for the plight of many struggling Australians. Yet he felt a strong connection between the suffering of people everywhere, whether they were the Jews that he remembered from Europe, landless blacks in the heart of Australia or hungry children in inner urban Melbourne. He left Australia in 1948 and after two years of traveling and exhibiting in Paris, Montreal and New York, he settled in Israel. He lived in Safed until moving to Tel Aviv in 1957. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3z8PetmY1c

Itche Goldberg interviewed in YIddish

In this film (83 minutes) in Yiddish , 101-year-old educator, essayist, literary critic, poet, and editor Itche Goldberg discusses his life: his upbringing, schooling in Poland and Canada, his work as an educator and editor and his views as a literary critic. Itche speaks candidly with interviewer Eugene Orenstein of McGill University about the linke shuln (progressive schools), which he helped to shape, and very honestly assesses their strengths and shortcomings. Among other things, he recalls both a conflict with famed anarchist Emma Goldman and “kashering” a Yiddish reader with a photo of Lenin! What emerges is a multi-faceted picture of the world of a man who attended the funeral of the great Yiddish writer I.L. Peretz over 90 years ago and who remained creatively, intellectually and politically active in the Yiddish world until his death at 102! BIOGRAPHY Itche Goldberg (1904-2006) was born in Apt, Poland, and grew up in Warsaw. Since his arrival in Canada in 1920 as a teenager, the name Itche Goldberg has been synonymous with the linke (progressive) Yiddish movement. In 1925 Itche started Yungvelt, Canada’s first secular Jewish children’s camp. In 1932 he moved to New York City and from 1933 until the mid-1970s he was director of the Yiddish schools and cultural programs of the International Workers Order/Jewish People’s Fraternal Order (JPFO).(Beginning in 1953, following the dissolution of the IWO due to McCarthyism, the schools were run by the newly named Service Bureau for Jewish Education.) Itche edited Yidishe Kultur and the children’s magazine Yungvarg. In the 1950s he established the Zhitlowsky Foundation for Jewish Culture. He is the recipient of two major literary awards: Israel’s Itsik Manger Prize in 1985 and the Dovid Hofshteyn Prize in 1990. His latest book Eseyen — Tsvey (Essays — Two) was published in 2006. INTERVIEWER Eugene Orenstein is Associate Professor in the Dept. of Jewish Studies at McGill University where he teaches modern Jewish history and Yiddish literature. He was a student in the Ordn-shuln (schools of the Jewish People’s Fraternal Order) where Itche Goldberg was his teacher. This was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. DIRECTOR Josh Waletzky

‫A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט‬

A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity On Sunday, May 5, 2013, the League for Yiddish held a historic program, “A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity,” in honor of the publication of its book, New Yiddish Literature, Afn Shvel Issue # 358-359. The program features: greetings from Prof. David G. Roskies of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America; dramatic readings from the book by actor Hy Wolfe; a discussion on “Prospects for Contemporary Yiddish Writing” with Professors Marc Caplan, Dov-Ber Kerler, and Sheva Zucker; and new Yiddish songs composed and sung by Josh Waletzky. (Those interested will be able to hear the songs when Waletzky’s new CD is released.) The volume being honored (see the cover and excerpts at http://leagueforyiddish.org/palce3sdi&#8230;) encompasses the work of 30 people writing in Yiddish, ranging from college students to venerable older Yiddish writers, living on four continents and in seven countries. The evening was organized in partnership with the Program in Modern Jewish Studies of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט זונטיק, דעם 5טן מײַ 2013, האָט די ייִדיש־ליגע אָפּגעהאַלטן אַן איין־מאָל־אין־אַ־יובֿלדיקער פּראָגראַם, „אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט”, לכּבֿוד דעם אַרויסקום פֿון איר ביכל, נײַע ייִדישע ליטעראַטור (אויפֿן שוועל נומ’ 358־359). די פּראָגראַם באַשטייט פֿון: אַ באַגריסונג פֿון פּראָפֿ’ דוד־הירש ראָסקעס פֿון דעם ייִדישן טעאָלאָגישן סעמינאַר; דראַמאַטישע פֿאָרלייענונגען פֿונעם ביכל פֿון אַקטיאָר חיים וואָלף; אַ דיסקוסיע, „פּערספּעקטיוון פֿאַר דער הײַנטצײַטיקער ייִדישער ליטעראַטור, מיט די פּראָפֿעסאָרן מאַרק קאַפּלאַן, דבֿ־בער קערלער און שבֿע צוקער; און נײַע לידער געשריבן און קאָמפּאָנירט פֿון דזשאַש וואַלעצקי.

If Books Could Talk: The Story of Three Jewish Treasures Rescued from the Vilna Ghetto

26.05.2015 Monday, November 24, 2014 | 7pm YIVO Institute for Jewish Research FROM THE YIVO ARCHIVES Ruth Gay Seminar in Jewish Studies What are the secret lives of books? In the Vilna Ghetto, Yiddish poets Abraham Sutzkever and Szmerke Kaczerginski and others risked their lives to rescue Jewish treasures from destruction and looting by the Nazis. David Fishman (Jewish Theological Seminary) selects three of the extraordinary items they saved—Theodor Herzl’s diary, the minute-book from the Vilna Gaon’s synagogue, and an original manuscript of Jacob Gordin’s classic Yiddish play ‘Mirele Efros’—and reveals their “biographies”: their composition and significance; the story of their acquisition by YIVO; their rescue; and their retrieval after Vilna’s liberation. Two of these works were safely transported to YIVO in New York, but the third work encountered a very different fate in Soviet Lithuania. The Ruth Gay Seminar in Jewish Studies was established in 2008 in honor of Ruth Gay (1922-2006), the noted American Jewish historian and writer, with a generous gift from the family of Ruth Gay. The seminar series is given by scholars who have conducted research in the YIVO Archives and wish to share their work with the public.

סיפור על אהבה וחושך-מסע אל רובנו של עמוס עוז

Fania Oz returns to family building in the city Rivne, Ukraine בספר, שעלילתו אינה קווית, מתאר עוז בגוף ראשון ילדות בשכונת כרם אברהם, בירושלים ונעורים בקיבוץ חולדה. הסיפור מתנהל על רקע תקופת המנדט והחיכוך עם ערביי ארץ ישראל, הקמת המדינה ושנותיה הראשונות. עוז מתאר גם את הדורות הקודמים של משפחתו המזרח אירופאית. הספר, בנוסף להיותו תיעוד תרבותי, הוא תיאור אישי וכאוב מאוד של ילדות בצל נישואיהם המיוסרים של הוריו: אם דיכאונית ואב מלומד, קרוב אך גם מרוחק, שהקריירה שלו הוחמצה בצלו של הדוד הגדול. הטרגדיה המשפחתית מגיעה לשיאה כאשר אמו של עמוס, ילד בן שתים עשרה, מתאבדת אחרי תקופה ארוכה של ייסורי נפש. הספר רצוף בהרהורים פוליטיים וספרותיים ומצייר בעוקצנות, אך גם במידה של אמפתיה, אנשי רוח ופוליטיקאים בהם נתקל: דוֹד אביו, חוקר תקופת בית שני, יוסף קלוזנר, ש”י עגנון, שגר בסמוך לקלוזנר, דוד בן-גוריון, שהתכתב עם עוז מעל דפי דבר והזמינו לפגישה, ואחרים. אהבתו הראשונה של עוז, הייתה, כך הוא מספר, המשוררת זלדה, שלימדה אותו בכיתה ב’. אחד הקטעים המרשימים בספר הוא זה שבו נזכר עוז בפרץ השמחה העצום עם אישור האו”ם את תוכנית החלוקה ב-כ”ט בנובמבר.

Celebrating Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary with Channel 2 – Sivan Rahav Meir

Wikimedia Israel looked for a special way to celebrate the Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary – something that has never been done before. The result was a unique collaboration with TV Channel 2, the most viewed channel in Israel! For an entire week, five of the most senior Channel 2 reporters, who learned to edit Wikipedia by our volunteers, wrote or extended an article on Hebrew Wikipedia. Then, each recorded a one minute video, explaining why they have decided to write on this specific topic. Every day, just before the evening news broadcast, the video was broadcasted and while the anchor presented the project, he explained “we wanted to celebrate Wikipedia’s 10th anniversary and show that everyone can write an article on Wikipedia” . Happy Birthday Wikipedia! http://www.wikimedia.org.il

Reportajes y documentales: 90 minutos Alemania-Israel

11.05.2015 90 minutos Alemania-Israel – Fútbol entre Tel Aviv y BerlínCuando el Bayern Múnich juega en torneos internacionales, sus seguidores israelíes en Tel Aviv no pierden detalle. Cuando el jugador israelí Almog Cohen llegó a Núremberg, fue recibido por los hinchas locales con banderas de Israel. Y un alemán, Michael Nees, diseña el futuro del fútbol israelí como director técnico de la selección sub-21 y director técnico de la federación. Todo esto era impensable hace 50 años, cuando Alemania e Israel establecieron lazos diplomáticos. El fútbol jugó, y juega, un papel protagónico en la normalización de las relaciones germano-israelíes. Pero, ¿de qué hablamos cuando decimos “normales”? ¿Cómo viven los futbolistas judíos en Alemania? Y, ¿cómo vive un entrenador alemán en Israel, flanqueado por la realidad en Oriente Medio y el lastre de la historia?

The Lady Lifers: A moving song from women in prison for life

15.05.2015 The ten women in this chorus have all been sentenced to life in prison. They share a moving song about their experiences — one that reveals their hopes, regrets and fears. “I’m not an angel,” sings one, “but I’m not the devil.” Filmed at an independent TEDx event inside Muncy State Prison, it’s a rare and poignant look inside the world of people imprisoned with no hope of parole. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design — plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

Israel – what a beautiful country

The renewed growth of anti-Israeli attitudes is also irritating. Old and new resentments are being nurtured, revived, and advanced. Irraels will for self-defense and self-preservation is being distorted, and Israels right to act accordingly is being disputed. In this respect, our sympathy has certain priorities, and the latent left-wing anti-Zionism is shocking and annoying. Comparing Israelis with Nazis, calling their politics fascistic should in turn regard Germans as victims of an unaccepted defeat. Those who sell the terror initiated by the Palestinians as fight for freedom and who deny Israel the right for self-defense, who deny the positive sides of this one and only respectable justice system in the Near-East, nauseate us with their ideological untruthfulness.

Janusz Korczak

From Wikipedia, Janusz Korczak, the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit[1] (22 July 1878 or 1879 – August 7, 1942[2]), was a Polish-Jewish educator, children’s author, and pediatrician known as Pan Doktor (“Mr. Doctor”) or Stary Doktor (“Old Doctor”). After spending many years working as director of an orphanage in Warsaw, he refused freedom and stayed with his orphans when the institution was sent from the Ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp, during the Grossaktion Warsaw of 1942.[3]   Photo by Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

The Last Korczak Boy

15.04.2015 Itzchak Belfer never really left Yanusz Korczak’s orphanage on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw, Poland. Even though he is now 90 years old, a well-known Israeli artist, he will always be little Itzchakele from Warsaw, and Korczak is always with him in thought and spirit. The Polish doctor and educator lives on in Belfer’s drawings and paintings, and Yanusz Korczak’s spirit dwells in the artist’s soul. Belfer shares with us his amazingly clear memories from the orphanage on Krochmalna Street in pre-World War II Warsaw. He reveals Korczak’s unique view of children as, first of all, human beings to be treated with the same dignity and consideration as adults. He warmly describes the work of Korczak and his assistant, Stepha Wilczyńska, at the orphanage, their love for the children and their total dedication to saving them, which led to their tragic end. Janusz Korczak (Source: Yad Vashem) http://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/holoca… (Pen name of Henryk Goldszmit; 1878/9-1942) Polish Jewish doctor, author and educator. Born in Warsaw to an assimilated Jewish family, Korczak dedicated his life to caring for children, particularly orphans. He believed that children should always be listened to and respected, and this belief was reflected in his work. He wrote several books for and about children, and broadcast a children’s radio program. In 1912 Korczak became the director of a Jewish orphanage in Warsaw. When World War II broke out in 1939, Korczak first refused to accept the German occupation and heed their regulations (consequently spending time in jail). However, when the Jews of Warsaw were forced to move into a ghetto, Korczak refocused his efforts on the children in his orphanage. Despite offers from Polish friends to hide him on the “Aryan” side of the city, Korczak refused to abandon the children. On August 5, 1942, during a 2-month wave of deportations from the ghetto, the Nazis rounded up Korczak and his 200 children. They marched in rows to the Umschlagplatz with Korczak in the lead. He never abandoned his children, even to the very end. Korczak and the children were sent to Treblinka, where they were all murdered.

The Exodus as Cultural Memory- Ron Hendel

02.04.2015 Ron Hendel Ph.D., Norma and Sam Dabby Professor of Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies, University of California at Berkeley The Exodus is a central event in biblical and Jewish memory. But according to the archaeological and historical record, it is unclear what it is a memory of. I propose that it is, in part, a transformed memory of the demise of the Egyptian Empire in Canaan, which facilitated the emergence of Israel as an independent people. The story served as an engine of a distinctive cultural identity, a function that it continues to perform today.

Lia van Leer

From Wikipedia, Lia van Leer (Hebrew: ליה ון ליר‎, August 8, 1924 – March 13, 2015) was a pioneer in the field of art film programming and film archiving in Israel. She was the founder of the Haifa Cinematheque, the Jerusalem Cinematheque, the Israel Film Archive and theJerusalem Film Festival. Lia van Leer (Greenberg) was born on August 8, 1924 in the Bessarabian city of Bălți, then in Romania, now in Moldova. Her father, Simon Greenberg, was a wheat exporter and her mother, Olga, was a WIZO volunteer. She attended a public high school and spent summer holidays in the Carpathian mountains. In 1940, her parents sent her to Palestine to visit her sister Bruria, a dentist, who had immigrated in 1936 and was living in Tel Aviv. She never saw her parents again.[1] In July 1941, the Germans occupied Beltsy and murdered her father and other Jewish community leaders. Her mother and grandmother were deported to Transnistria and died in a concentration camp. Lia moved to Jerusalem in 1943 to attend the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 1952, she married Wim Van Leer, a Dutch engineer, pilot, playwright and film producer, and settled in Haifa.[2] They founded the country’s first film club in 1955.Read More Button--orange

770 Named ‘Unofficial’ Brooklyn Landmark

http://crownheights.info/chabad-news/480925/770-named-unofficial-brooklyn-landmark/
From Wikipedia,
A Chabad house is a centre for disseminating Traditional Judaism by the Chabad movement. Chabad Houses are run by a ChabadShaliach (emissary), his wife and family. They are located in cities and on or near college campuses.
The first Chabad house for university students was opened in March 1969 at the University of California, Los Angeles by RabbiShlomo Cunin. Cunin had been sent to Los Angeles in 1965 by Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson to lay the groundwork for the organization’s West Coast activities.[1] In 1972 Cunin opened additional Chabad houses at the University of California, Berkeley andUniversity of California, San Diego.[2] By 2003, Cunin had overseen the establishment of nearly 100 Chabad houses in California.[1]
In a Chabad house, the Shaliach and Shalucha (rabbi and his wife) host programs, activities, and services for the local Jewish community and for tourists.[3]

Alfred Knopf was supposed to become a lawyer but found himself magnetized by books – which he believed should be published with class.
Alfred A. Knopf

From Wikipedia,
Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. (pronounced /kəˈnɒf/, with an audible k and silent p) is a New York publishing house that was founded by Alfred A. Knopf Sr. in 1915. It was acquired by Random House in 1960 and is now part of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group.[1]

Random House has been owned since its 2013 merger of Penguin Group by Penguin Random House, a joint venture between Bertelsmann (53%) and Pearson PLC (47%).

In this video Dr. Marvin Minsky discusses the future of human minds, possibility of overcoming death and invites participants to the second international Global Future 2045 congress (June 2013)http://www.GF2045.com. “Everything is made of atoms, and so if you make a machine, in some sense it’s made of the same kinds of material as brains are made, but organized, maybe either in very different ways, or fundamentally the same ways. No one knows very much about how the brain represents knowledge and does reasoning at the moment, so it’s hard to predict how long it will take to do things like that. At some point, when we understand how brains work, then we should be able to make functional copies out of other materials.” “When will all these great things happen, of overcoming death and making people more intelligent and turning ourselves into machines with replaceable parts, so that suffering and that sort of thing will disappear? It’s very hard to predict, but my impression is that progress has been slowing down rather rapidly in the last few decades, and that in the early days of cybernetics, from 1940 to 1980, we were learning more and more about the brain very rapidly, and contrary to many current opinions, I think we’re learning less and less in recent years.” says Dr. Marvin Minsky For more information about the GF2045 congress, please visit http://www.GF2045.com This Day in Jewish History / Ultimate ‘court Jew’ to the king of Austria dies Haaretz http://www.haaretz.com/beta/1.669716 This Day in Jewish History / Ultimate ‘court Jew’ to the king of Austria dies.

This day in Jewish history / ‘Dr. Strangelove’ premieres. By David B. Green | Jan. 29, 2013 | 8:57 AM. On July 24, 1980, the comic actor Peter Sellers …
Peter Sellers, CBE (born Richard Henry Sellers; 8 September 1925 – 24 July 1980) was a British film actor, comedian and singer. He performed in the BBC Radio comedy series The Goon Show, featured on a number of hit comic songs and became known to a world-wide audience through his many film characterisations, among them Chief Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther series of films.
Sellers was born on 8 September 1925, in Southsea, a suburb of Portsmouth. His parents were Yorkshire-born William “Bill” Sellers (1900–62) and Agnes Doreen “Peg” (née Marks, 1892–1967). Both were variety entertainers; Peg was in the Ray Sisters troupe.[3] Although christened Richard Henry, his parents called him Peter, after his elder stillborn brother.[4] Sellers remained an only child.[5] Peg Sellers was related to the pugilist Daniel Mendoza (1764–1836), whom Sellers greatly revered, and whose engraving later hung in his office. At one time Sellers planned to use Mendoza’s image for his production company’s logo. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

This Day in Jewish History / Irgun blows up British headquarters at King David Hotel The Irgun, headed by Menachem Begin, tried to warn the British to evacuate the King David in advance. But nobody listened, and 91 people died. http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/this-day-in-jewish-history/.premium-1.667111 King David Hotel bombing From Wikipedia, The King David Hotel bombing was an terrorist attack carried out on Monday July 22, 1946 by the militant Zionist underground organization, the Irgun, on the British administrative headquarters for Palestine, which was housed in the southern wing[1] of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.[2][3][4] 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured.[5] The hotel was the site of the central offices of the British Mandatory authorities of Palestine, principally the Secretariat of the Government of Palestine and the Headquarters of the British Armed Forces in Palestine and Transjordan.[5][6] The attack initially had the approval of the Haganah (the principal Jewish paramilitary group in Palestine). It was conceived as a response to Operation Agatha (a series of widespread raids, including one on the Jewish Agency, conducted by the British authorities) and was the deadliest directed at the British during the Mandate era (1920–1948) Photo by Wikipedia read more… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_David_Hotel_bombing

Palestine 1946: King David Hotel Bomb Warning Controversy

The King David Hotel bombing (July 22, 1946) was a bomb attack against the British Mandate government of Palestine and its armed forces by members of the Irgun, a militant Zionist organization, which was led at the time by Menachem Begin, a future Prime Minister of Israel. Members of the Irgun, commanded by Yosef Avni and Yisrael Levi [1] and dressed as ‘Arabs’ and as the Hotel’s distinctive Sudanese waiters, planted a bomb in the basement of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, part of which was being used as the base for the Mandate Secretariat, the British military headquarters and a branch of the police Criminal Investigation Division. The ensuing explosion caused the collapse of the south-western corner of the southern wing of the hotel. 91 people were killed, most of them staff of the secretariat and the hotel: 28 British, 41 Arab, 17 Jewish, and 5 others. Around 45 people were injured. Some of the deaths and injuries occurred in the road outside the hotel and in adjacent buildings. The attack on the hotel was the deadliest attack against the British in the history of the Mandate and is often credited as being a major factor in the British decision to relinquish the Mandate. If classed as terrorism, the attack was the most cowardly & deadliest of that kind anywhere in the world. Prime Minister Clement Attlee commented on the attack to the House of Commons: Hon. Members will have learned with horror of the brutal and murderous crime committed yesterday in Jerusalem. Of all the outrages which have occurred in Palestine against the Arabs, and they have been many and horrible in the last few months, this is the worst. By this insane act of terrorism 93 innocent people have been killed or are missing in the ruins. The latest figures of casualties are 41 dead, 52 missing and 53 injured. I have no further information at present beyond what is contained in the following official report received from Jerusalem: “It appears that after exploding a bomb in the street, presumably as a diversionary measure — this did virtually no damage — a lorry drove up to the tradesmen’s entrance of the King David Hotel and the occupants, after holding up the staff at pistol point, entered the kitchen premises carrying a number of milk cans. At some stage of the proceedings, they shot and seriously wounded a British soldier who attempted to interfere with them. All available information so far is to the effect that they were Jews. Somewhere in the basement of the hotel they planted bombs which went off shortly afterwards. They appear to have made good their escape.” The Zionist Irgun issued an initial statement accepting responsibility for the attack, blaming the British for the deaths due to failure to respond to the warning and mourning only the Jewish victims. A year later, on July 22, 1947, they issued a new statement saying that they were acting on instructions from “a letter from the headquarters of the United Resistance, demanding that we carry out an attack on the British at the King David Hotel as soon as possible.” In July 2006, Israelis including former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former members of Irgun attended a 60th anniversary celebration of the bombing, which was organized by the Menachem Begin Centre. The British Ambassador in Tel Aviv and the Consul-General in Jerusalem dissented, saying “We do not think that it is right for an act of terrorism, which led to the loss of so many lives, to be commemorated.” They also protested against an Israeli plaque that claims that people died because the British ignored warning calls, saying it was untrue and “did not absolve those who planted the bomb.” The plaque read “For reasons known only to the British, the hotel was not evacuated.” City officials agreed to amend the wording on the plaque?

The Seventeenth of Tammuz (Hebrew: שבעה עשר בתמוז‎, Shiv’ah Asar b’Tammuz) is a Jewish fast day commemorating the breach of the walls of Jerusalem before the destruction of the Second Temple.[1] It falls on the 17th day of the Hebrew month of Tammuz and marks the beginning of the three-week mourning period leading up to Tisha B’Av.[2] This day also commemorates the destruction of the Twin Tablets of the Ten Commandments. The Seventeenth of Tammuz occurs forty days after the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Moses ascended Mount Sinai on Shavuot and remained there for forty days. The Children of Israel made the Golden Calf on the afternoon of the sixteenth of Tammuz when it seemed that Moses was not coming down when promised. Moses descended the next day (forty days by his count), saw that the Israelites were violating many of the laws he had received from God, and smashed the tablets.[3]Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Abraham “Abe” Cahan (July 7, 1860 – August 31, 1951) was a Belarusian-born Jewish-American socialist newspaper editor, novelist, and politician.[1],,, Abraham Cahan was born July 7, 1860, in Podberezhie in Belarus (at the time in Vilnius Governorate, Russian Empire), into an orthodox Litvak family. His grandfather was a rabbi in Vidz, Vitebsk, his father a teacher of Hebrew language and the Talmud. The devoutly religious family moved in 1866 to Vilnius, where the young Cahan received the usual Jewish preparatory education for the rabbinate. He, however, was attracted by secular knowledge and clandestinely studied the Russian language, ultimately prevailing on his parents to allow him to enter the Teachers Institute of Vilnius, from which he was graduated in 1881. He was appointed teacher in a Jewish government school in Velizh, Vitebsk, in the same year.[2] Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Abe Cahan Exhibit

We had the opportunity to check out the Forward’s exhibit of its founder Abe Cahan. It is an amazing exhibit showcasing the beginning of The Forward. During his years of activity, Cahan was either originator, collaborator, or editor of almost all the earlier socialist periodicals published in that language in the United States.Abraham Cahan in his later years. From 1903 until 1946, Cahan ran the Jewish Daily Forward (Forverts), a socialist Yiddish-language daily in New York. In 1906 he introduced an advice column named A Bintel Brief. As a rule, Cahan was one of the more temperate voices in the Socialist Party of America, respecting his readers’ religious beliefs and preaching an increasingly moderate version of the socialist gospel as time progressed. By 1924 Forverts had over a quarter of a million readers, making it the most successful non-English-language newspaper in the U.S. and the leading Yiddish paper in the world. Cahan quickly mastered the English language, and four years after his arrival in New York taught immigrants in one of the evening schools. Later he began to contribute articles to the Sun and other newspapers printed in English, and was for several years employed in a literary capacity by the Commercial Advertiser, where we was a regular contributor.

From Wikipedia, The Grateful Dead are an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California.[1][2] Ranging from quintet to septet, the band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, rock, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, space rock,[3][4] for live performances of lengthy instrumental jams,[5][6] and for their devoted fan base, known as “Deadheads”. “Their music,” writes Lenny Kaye, “touches on ground that most other groups don’t even know exists.”[7] These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead “the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world”.[8] They were ranked 57th in the issue The Greatest Artists of all Time by Rolling Stone magazine.[9] Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Law of Return

From Wikipedia The Law of Return (Hebrew: חֹוק הַשְׁבוּת, ḥok ha-shvūt) is Israeli legislation, passed on 5 July 1950, that gives Jews the right of return and the right to live in Israel and to gain citizenship.[1] In 1970, the right of entry and settlement was extended to people of Jewish ancestry, and their spouses. The Law of Return 5710-1950 was enacted by the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, on July 5, 1950.[2] The Law declares the right of Jews to come to Israel: “Every Jew has the right to come to this country as an oleh.” Follow-up legislation on immigration matters was contained in the Nationality Law of 1952. The Law of Return was modified in 1970 to extend the right of return to non-Jews with a Jewish grandparent, and their spouses. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Youth Aliyah (Hebrew: עלית הנוער, Aliyat Hano’ar) is a Jewish organization that rescued thousands of Jewish children from the Nazis during the Third Reich. Youth Aliyah arranged for their resettlement in Palestine in kibbutzim and youth villages that became both home and school. Recha Freier, a rabbi’s wife, founded Youth Aliyah in Berlin on the same day that Adolf Hitler took power, Monday 30 January 1933. The organisation was founded to protect German Jewish youth from the impending Holocaust by sending them to pioneer training programs in Palestine after completing elementary school. The idea was supported by the World Zionist Organization. Freier supervised the organization’s activities in Germany, and Henrietta Szold in Jerusalem. Israeli postage stamps celebrating Youth Aliyah Youth Aliyah by ship Youth Aliyah by plane (“Flying Carpet”) Szold was skeptical about the merits of Freier’s proposal because, as the person responsible for social services by the Jewish Agency for all of Palestine, she was extremely pressed for funds and loath to take on a new untried program for German Jewish children.

From Wikipedia, Moshé Pinchas Feldenkrais (Hebrew: משה פנחס פלדנקרייז, May 6, 1904 – July 1, 1984) was an Israeli physicist and the founder of the Feldenkrais Method, designed to improve human functioning by increasing self-awareness through movement. Feldenkrais was born in the Russian Empire (present-day Ukraine) city of Slavuta. In 1918, he left his family, then living in Baranovichi, Belarus, to emigrate to Palestine.[1] There he worked as a laborer before obtaining his high-school diploma in 1925. After graduation, he worked as a cartographer for the British survey office. During his time in Palestine he began his studies of self-defense, including Ju-Jitsu. A soccer injury in 1929 would later figure into the development of his method.[2] Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais beschrieb seine Arbeit so: “Wie kann das Unmögliche möglich, das Mögliche leicht und das Leichte angenehm und elegant werden”. In den Kursen und Einzelstunden finden Sie einen wohlwollenden und guten Kontakt mit sich. In dieser Aufmerksamkeit erforschen wir unsere Bewegungsmöglichkeiten, Einschränkungen und manchmal auch Schmerzen. In einem bewussten Prozess des Spielens mit Bewegungsvariationen entsteht organisches Lernen. d.h. Bewegungsmuster die zu Verspannung und Schmerz führen werden erkannt und neue leichte, angenehme Formen der Bewegung und des Handels entwickelt.

Today is the birthday of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn of Lubavitch (1880-1950). This is also the day on which he was liberated from exile to the Soviet 47 years later.Living Torah

Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn

From Wikipedia, File:FrierdigerRebbePassportPic.jpgYosef Yitzchak (Joseph Isaac)[1] Schneersohn (Hebrew: יוסף יצחק שניאורסאהן‎) was an Orthodox rabbi and the sixth Rebbe (spiritual leader) of the Chabad Lubavitch chasidic movement. He is also known as the Frierdiker Rebbe (Yiddish for “Previous Rebbe”), the Rebbe RaYYaTz, or the Rebbe Rayatz (an acronym for Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak). After many years of fighting to keep Orthodox Judaism alive from within the Soviet Union, he was forced to leave; he continued to conduct the struggle from Latvia, and then Poland, and eventually the United States, where he spent the last ten years of his life. Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn was born in Lyubavichi, Mogilev Governorate, Russian Empire (present-day Smolensk Oblast, Russia), the only son of Rabbi Sholom Dovber Schneersohn (the Rebbe Rashab), the fifth Rebbe of Chabad. He was appointed as his father’s personal secretary at the age of fifteen; in that year, he represented his father in the conference of communal leaders in Kovno. The following year (1896) he participated in the Vilna Conference, where Rabbis and community leaders discussed issues such as: genuine Jewish education; permission for Jewish children not to attend public school on Shabbat; the creation of a united Jewish organization for the purpose of strengthening Judaism. He participated in this conference again in 1908.

This Day in Jewish History / The rabbi who saved the Dachau survivors passes away Haaretz

On June 28, 2007, Abraham J. Klausner, the rabbi who in the days and years following the liberation of Dachau did so much to assist the survivors .

Abraham Klausner

From Wikipedia Abraham Judah Klausner (April 27, 1915 – June 28, 2007) was a Reform rabbi and United States Army captain and chaplain who became a “father figure” for the more than 30,000 emaciated survivors found at Dachau Concentration Camp, 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Munich, shortly after it was liberated on April 29, 1945. He also cared for thousands more left homeless in camps as the victorious Allied Forces determined where they should go. Following ordination, Klausner joined the army and served as a chaplain at the Lawson General Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Klausner eventually shipped out to Germany and was assigned to join the 116th Evacuation Hospital, which had just entered Dachau. The 116th Evacuation Hospital arrived at Dachau, which was 10 miles northwest of Munich, in May 1945, three weeks after the camp had been liberated on April 29, 1945. While Rabbi Eli Bohnen was the first Jewish chaplain in the United States Army to arrive at the Dachau concentration camp after its liberation, Bohnen’s unit remained only a short time. Rabbi Klausner arrived soon after. Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia Klausner photographed in 1945 .

Losing his family in the Holocaust, he resettled in New York, and increasingly took to fiction, writing in Yiddish. Initially he was reluctant to have his work translated.[1][2] He was praised by Elie Wiesel as “one of the great—if not the greatest—of living Yiddish novelists.

From Wikipedia, Barney Barnato (21 February 1851 – 14 June 1897), born Barnet Isaacs, was a British Randlord, one of the entrepreneurs who gained control of diamond mining, and later gold mining, in South Africa from the 1870s. He is perhaps best remembered as being a rival of Cecil Rhodes. Barney Barnato claimed he had the same birthday as Cecil Rhodes (5 July 1853). Most biographies give his date of birth as 5 July 1852. However, his birth certificate (supported by census data) shows he was born Barnet Isaacs in Aldgate, London on 21 February 1851,[1] the son of Isaac and Leah Isaacs. He was educated by Moses Angel at the Jews’ Free School.Lesen Sie weiter Button - OrangePhoto by Wikipedia

Al Schwimmer – 1917-2011

Al (Adolph) Schwimmer, one of the founders of the Israel Air Force and the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and an Israel Prize laureate, died, Friday. He was 94. Schwimmer, an American citizen, was born in New York in 1917. An aeronautics graduate and a licensed pilot, he served in the US Air Force during WWII, and was awarded a medal of valor. In 1947 he volunteered to help the Haganah paramilitary group to acquire aircraft. Schwimmer formed an aviation company, purchased war surpluses and smuggled them to Israel via then-Czechoslovakia. In 1950, however, he was convicted by US authorities of violating the UN imposed embargo for smuggling the planes. He was stripped of his rights, but not imprisoned. In 2001 he was pardoned by then President Bill Clinton. “Ordered” by Israeli PM, David Ben-Gurion to leave the USA and start an aircraft overhauling facility in Israel, Schwimmer came to Israel and founded ‘Bedek National Aviation Institute’ – later to become the IAI. He served as the technological advisor to the prime minister in two different governments in the 1970s, and founded the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Israel Institute of Technology. In 2006 he was awarded the Israel Prize for his contributions to Israeli society.

Yakov Sverdlov ☭

Yakov Sverdlov, Bolshevik activist. *** http://www.marxists.org/archive/trots… “AN IMPERIOUS CHAIRMAN Sverdlov had to preside a great deal. He was Chairman of many bodies and at many meetings. He was an imperious Chairman. Not in the sense that he shut off discussion, or curbed the speakers, and so on. Not at all. On the contrary, he never quibbled or insisted on formalities. His imperiousness as Chairman consisted in this, that he always knew exactly what practical decision was before the body; he understood who would speak, what would be said, and why; he was quite familiar with the backstage aspects of the issue — and every big and complex issue has its own backstage; he was adept at giving the floor in time to speakers who were needed; he knew how to put the proposition to a vote in time; he knew what could be carried and he was able to carry what he wanted. These traits of his as Chairman were bound up indissolubly with all his qualities as a practical leader, with his ability to appraise people in the flesh, realistically, with his inexhaustible inventiveness in the field of organizational and personnel combinations. During stormy sessions he was adept at permitting the assembly to become noisy and let off steam; and then at the proper moment he would intervene to restore order with a firm hand and a metallic voice. Sverdlov was of medium height, of dark complexion, thin and gaunt; his face, lean; his features, angular. His powerful and even mighty voice might have seemed out of consonance with his physique. To an even greater degree this might be said of his character. But such an impression could be only fleeting. And then the physical image became fused with the spiritual. Nor is this all, for this gaunt figure with its calm unconquerable and inflexible will and with its powerful but not flexible voice would then stand forth as a finished image. “Nichevo,” Valdimir Ilyich would sometimes say in a difficult situation. “Sverdlov will tell them about it in his Sverdlovian bass and the matter will be settled …” In these words there was affectionate irony. In the initial post-October period the Communists were, as is well-known, called “leatherites,” by our enemies, because of the way in which we dressed. I believe that Sverdlov”s example played a major role in introducing the leather “uniform” among us. At all events he invariably walked around encased in leather from head to toe, from his leather cap to his leather boots. This costume, which somehow corresponded with the character of those days, radiated far and wide from him, as the central organizational figure. Comrades who knew Sverdlov in the underground days remember a different Sverdlov. But in my memory Sverdlov remains clothed in leather as in an armor grown black under the blows of the first years of the Civil War. We were gathered at a session of the Political Bureau when Sverdlov, who was burning up with fever at home, took a turn for the worse. E.D. Stassova, the then Secretary of the Central Committee, came in during the session. She had come from Sverdlov”s apartment. Her face was unrecognizable. “Jacob Mikhailovich feels poorly, very poorly,” she said. A glance at her sufficed to understand that there was no hope. We cut the session short. Vladimir Ilyich went to Sverdlov”s apartment, and I left for the Commissariat to prepare to depart immediately to the front. In about 15 minutes a phone call came from Lenin, who said in that special muted voice which meant great strain: “He is gone.” “He is gone.” “He is gone.” For a while each of us held the receiver in our hands and each could feel the silence at the other end. Then we hung up. There was nothing more to say. Jacob Mikhailovich was gone. Sverdlov was no longer among us.” March 13, 1925

Hilberg was born to a Polish–Romanian Jewish family in Vienna, Austria. Hilberg was very much a loner, pursuing solitary hobbies such as geography, music and train spotting.[4] Though his parents attended synagogue on occasion, he personally found the irrationality of religion repellent and developed an allergy to it. He did however attend a Zionist school in Vienna, which inculcated the necessity of defending against, rather than surrendering to, the rising menace of Nazism  .Read More Button--orangePhoto by Wikipedia

Described as “gentle and courageous” and “intensely secretive”, Wilfrid Israel avoided public office and shunned publicity, but had, according to his biographer Naomi Shepherd, an “almost hypnotic” ability to influence friends and colleagues.

This Day in Jewish History / A humiliated Syria hangs Israeli spy Eli Cohen

Haaretz
Cohen had penetrated the highest echelons of the Syrian command and suspected they were hunting for a mole. But he went back one more time.

Eli Cohen tried and executed as Israeli spy in 1965.

In the early 1960’s Eli Cohen became a spy for Israel. Posing as a wealthy Arabic businessman, he gained the confidence of many prominent government officials in Syria. Cohen learned many military secrets before he was caught, tortured and executed in 1965. Two years later during the Six Day War, Israel used Cohen’s information to easily defeat the overconfident Syrian army. One of his brilliant feats was to recommended that trees be planted to shade the soldiers’ outposts. The Israeli army then knew the exact location of every one of them because of the trees. To this day his body is still in Syria. His widow has been campaigning for its release and return but stated that it should not in exchange for freeing terrorists.

He is best known for his espionage work in 1961 – 1965 in Syria, where he developed close relationships with the political andmilitary hierarchy there and became the Chief Adviser to the Minister of Defense. Syrian counter-intelligence authorities eventually uncovered a spy conspiracy, tried and convicted Cohen under pre-war ‘martial law’ to death penalty in 1965. The intelligence he gathered is claimed to have been an important factor in Israel’s success in the Six Day War.[1] File:Eli cohen22.jpg Eli Cohen was born in Alexandria to a devout Jewish and Zionist family in 1924. His father had moved there from Aleppo in 1914. In January 1947, he chose to enlist in theEgyptian Army as an alternative to paying the prescribed sum all young Jews were supposed to pay, but was declared ineligible on grounds of questionable loyalty.

Vom Wiener Lehrling zum Friedensnobelpreisträger

11.04.2012 (c) Andreas H. Landl für friedensnews.at: AK Präsident Herbert Tumpel erwies Wiens Friedensnobelpreisträger die Ehre. Tumpels Vater war Esperantist und ein Mann er Lettern, sprich gelernter Drucker wie der Friedensnobelpreisträger. Tumpel ist ein Anliegen, dass die von den Nazis verbrannten Bücher der Pazifisten in Österreich wieder zugänglich gemacht werden. Denn was nicht gedruckt vorliegt ist nicht zugänglich und kann tot geschwiegen werden. Ab jetzt wir “zurückgedruckt”, denn: Im Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten schaffte ein Bursche aus elendigen Verhältnissen eine Karriere mit Lehre. Er wurde der einzige Wiener Friedensnobelpreisträger. Bis 2006 war das in Wien kaum jemandem bekannt. Denn der war Freidenker aus einer jüdischen Familie, Pazifist, Gewerkschafter, Friedensjournalist, Internationalist und Freimauerer. Soviel Friedensengagement war natürlich für die Militaristen im deutschsprachigen Raum ab 1914 zuviel des Guten. Fried und seine Werke wurden bekämpft. Er musste zweimal fliehen. Einmal aus Österreich und einmal aus Bayern. Rechtsextreme aller Couleur säuberten die Bibliotheken in vier Wellen von seinen Werken. So kam es, dass selbst Friedensbeweger wie ich oder Herbert Tumpel der Präsident der Arbeiterkammer bis 2006 nichts über den Wiener Friedensnobelpreisträger wussten. Walter Göhring stieß bei der Recherche über Ferdinand Hanusch auf den Wiener Friedensnobelpreisträger und macht erstmals 2006 breiter publik, was fast vollkommen verdrängt war. Am 11.04.2012 18:00 Uhr gab es eine hochkarätige Veranstaltung des Instituts für Gewerkschafts- und AK Geschichte und derAlfred Hermann Fried Gesellschaft Löcker Verlag in der AK Bibiliothek in Wien. “Zwei Mal in der Geschichte ging der begehrte Friedensnobelpreis auch an ÖsterreicherInnen: 1905 an Bertha von Suttner (1843-1914) und 1911 an Alfred Hermann Fried (1864-1921). Die Leistungen des Friedensnobelpreisträgers Alfred Hermann Fried standen lange Zeit im Schatten Bertha von Suttners. Vielfach unbekannt ist, dass Fried * als Buchhandelslehrling eine Jugendgewerkschaft gründete, die in die Gewerkschaft der Kaufmännischen Angestellten mündete, eine der Vorläufer organisationen der heutigen GPA-djp. * Ab 1892 gab er gemeinsam mit Bertha von Suttner die pazifistische Zeitschrift „Die Waffen nieder!” heraus, in der er u.a. seine pazifistischen Ideen artikulierte. Dass Fried damit zu den Vorkämpfern der europäischen Friedensbewegung gehörte, ist heute ebenfalls vielfach vergessen: mit seiner Zeitschrift “Die Friedenswarte” schuf Fried ein Organ, in dem die Ideen für ein neues demokratisch geeintes Europa ihren Niederschlag fanden. Der Zeithistoriker Walter Göhring hat sich in Archiven und Bibliotheken in der Schweiz, in den USA, den Niederlanden, Ungarn, der Slowakei und Österreich auf die Spuren Alfred Hermann Frieds begeben. Ergebnis dieser Spurensuche sind Publikationen und Beiträge sowie eine Ausstellung über Alfred Hermann Fried, der mit seinen Arbeiten bis in die Gründung der UNO und der Europäischen Union hineingewirkt hat. Sein Werk ist heute aktueller denn je.”

Alfred Hermann Fried

From Wikipedia, Alfred Hermann Fried (11 November 1864 – 5 May 1921) was an Austrian Jewish pacifist, publicist, journalist, co-founder of the German peace movement, and winner (with Tobias Asser) of the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1911. Born in Vienna, Austria-Hungary, Fried left school at the age of 15 and started to work in a bookshop. In 1883 he moved to Berlin, where he opened a bookshop of his own in 1887. Following the publication by Bertha von Suttner of Die Waffen nieder! (Lay Down Your Arms) in 1889, he and von Suttner began in 1892 to print a magazine of the same name. In articles published within Die Waffen nieder! and its successor, Die Friedenswarte (The Peace Watch), he articulated his pacifist philosophy. Read More Button--orangePhotos by  Wikipedia  This Day in Jewish History / A trailblazing female archaeologist dies Hetty Goldman wanted to write novels but thought she had ‘nothing to say.’ Then she discovered human history – and war.

CEMENTERIO JUDIO DE PRAGA

El cementerio judío se ubica en el distrito de Josefor de Praga y se creó en 1439. El poeta y erudito Avigdor Karo fue la primera persona enterrada en este lugar. El cementerio estuvo activo hasta 1787, cuando fue clausurado definitivamente con la tumba de Moses Beck. Debido a la falta de espacio los cuerpos se enterraban unos encima de otros llegando a más de 11 capas de enterramientos. Cientos de nombres célebres descansan en este lugar, como el sabio del Renacimiento, historiador, matemático y astrónomo David Gans (d.1613), o el erudito e historiador José Salomón Delmedigo (d.1655), y el rabino y coleccionista de manuscritos y libros impresos en hebreo David Oppenheim (m. 1736). Aunque sin duda el más conocido de todos es el gran erudito y maestro religioso Judá Loew ben Bezalel, conocido como el rabino Loew (d. 1609), que se asocia con la leyenda del Golem, un muñeco de barro creado por Loew para defender a los judíos de Praga, pero que enloqueció y no pudo cumplir su tarea.A día de hoy se pueden ver más de 12.000 lápidas y se estima que puede haber enterradas unas 100.000 personas

Kurt Waldheim, a commission of enquiry parts 1-9

These nine films are part of a much larger programme that was aired in 1988 which looks into allegations that the recently elected president of Austria Kurt Waldheim was a Nazi war criminal. Waldheim had previously been the fourth Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981. I do not possess any more of this programme which I ‘rediscovered’ in 2008 on a VHS cassette used some 20 years earlier. Waldheim had unsuccessfully sought election as President of Austria in 1971, but his second attempt on 8 June 1986 proved successful. During his campaign for the presidency in 1985, the events started that marked the beginning of what became known internationally as the “Waldheim Affair”. Before the presidential elections, Alfred Worm revealed in the Austrian weekly news magazine Profil that there had been several omissions about Waldheim’s life between 1938 and 1945 in his recently-published autobiography. A short time later, the World Jewish Congress alleged that Waldheim had lied about his service as an officer in the mounted corps of the SA, and his time as an ordnance officer for Army Group E in Saloniki, Greece, from 1942 to 1943 based in files from the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Waldheim called the allegations “pure lies and malicious acts”. Nevertheless he admitted that he had known about German reprisals against partisans: “Yes, I knew. I was horrified. But what could I do? I had either to continue to serve or be executed.” He said that he had never fired a shot or even seen a partisan. His former immediate superior at the time stated that Waldheim had “remained confined to a desk”. Part of the reason for the controversy was Austria’s refusal to address its national role in the Holocaust – which was the home not only of Adolf Hitler but also many other leading Nazis. Austria refused to pay compensation to Nazi victims and from 1970 onwards refused to investigate Austrian citizens who were senior Nazis. Because the revelations leading to the Waldheim affair came shortly before the presidential election there has been speculation about the background of the affair. Declassified CIA documents show that the CIA had been aware of his war time past since 1945. Some sources report information about Waldheim’s wartime past was also previously published by a right wing Austrian newspaper during the 1971 presidential election campaign – including the claim of an SS membership.

Bergen-Belsen concentration camp

From Wikipedia, Bergen-Belsen (or Belsen) was a Nazi concentration camp in what is today Lower Saxony in northern Germany, southwest of the town of Bergen near Celle. Originally established as a prisoner of war camp,[1] in 1943, parts of it became a concentration camp. Initially this was an “exchange camp”, where Jewish hostages were held with the intention of exchanging them for German prisoners of war held overseas.[2] The camp was later expanded to accommodate Jews from other concentration camps.

From 1941 to 1945, almost 20,000 Soviet prisoners of war and a further 50,000 inmates died there,[3] with up to 35,000 of them dying of typhus in the first few months of 1945, shortly before and after the liberation Read More Button--orangePhotos by  Wikipedia

Bergen Belsen Liberation

Bergen-Belsen was a Nazi concentration camp in Lower Saxony in northwestern Germany, southwest of the town of Bergen near Celle. Between 1943 and the war’s end, an estimated 50,000 Russian Prisoners of War and a further 50,000 inmates died there,up to 35,000 of them dying of typhus in the first few months of 1945. The camp was liberated on April 15, 1945 by the British 11th Armoured Division.60,000 prisoners were found inside, most of them seriously ill, and another 13,000 corpses lay around the camp unburied.When the British and Canadians advanced on Bergen-Belsen in 1945, the German army negotiated a truce and exclusion zone around the camp to prevent the spread of typhus. Under the agreement, Hungarian and regular German troops guarding the camp returned to German lines when Allied troops liberated the camp on April 15, 1945.

Nazi Experiment Survivor Eva Mozes Kor Speaks at Clarkson University

Auschwitz survivor Eva Mozes Kor delivered a powerful message of forgiveness on October 8 at Clarkson University, while speaking before a large audience of students, faculty, staff and community members. When she was about 10 years old, Kor and her family were taken by the Nazis to the Auschwitz slave labor and extermination camp, where her parents and two older sisters were quickly sent to the gas chambers. Kor and her sister, Miriam, were twins, so they were of chilling interest to Dr. Josef Mengele, who subjected them to a series of heinous human experiments. Her talk, “The Journey from Auschwitz & Mengele to Forgiveness,” told the amazing story of what she endured and how she eventually came to forgive Mengele and the Nazis. Sheila Faith Weiss, professor of history in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Clarkson, arranged for Kor to share her story. “I received a $277,000 National Science Foundation grant to write a biography of Dr. Mengele’s mentor, the German human geneticist Baron Otmar von Verschuer, and I had been in contact with Eva Mozes Kor,” Weiss says. “Because I am teaching a seminar on the Holocaust this semester, I asked Eva whether she might be willing to give a lecture at Clarkson. Normally, she would have charged more for her talk, but generously agreed to accept significantly less so we could bring her here. Her message is especially important for our students to hear.” Trained in German history and the history of biology, Weiss has written a book which explores the background that led to the kind of bestial human experimentation Kor was subjected to in Auschwitz. The Nazi Symbiosis, Human Genetics and Politics in the Third Reich (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010) raises compelling questions about medicine and ethics.

Exodus 1947 Documentary Film narrated by Morley Safer. Filmmakers: Elizabeth Rodgers & Robby Henson. PBS broadcast. To buy the DVD, please go to http://www.exodus1947.com After World War II, a group of private American citizens banded together in a clandestine effort to transport Holocaust survivors to Palestine. On July 11, 1947, in the port of Sête, France, 4,500 Jewish refugees were crammed into the hull of a decrepit steamship, later named Exodus 1947. A British blockade intercepted Exodus 1947 in international waters off the coast of Palestine. The tense standoff culminated in a direct attack by military personnel against the unarmed civilians on the Exodus 1947. This highly publicized international incident heavily influenced the United Nations resolution authorizing the partitioning of Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states. Thus, the Exodus 1947 voyage acted as a catalyst in forming a new nation. The program focuses on clandestine and illegal American efforts to finance and crew the most infamous of ten American ships that attempted to bring Jewish refugees to Palestine. EXODUS 1947 is a one hour documentary narrated by Morley Safer with a score by Ilan Rechtman. The film is a richly layered program, constructed with first person accounts to recall events that shaped world history.

Edna Ferber – Long Distance

12.12.2014 Edna Ferber (August 15, 1885 – April 16, 1968) was an American novelist, short story writer and playwright. Her novels were especially popular and included the Pulitzer Prize-winning So Big (1924), Show Boat (1926; made into the celebrated 1927 musical), Cimarron (1929; made into the 1931 film which won the Academy Award for Best Picture), and Giant (1952; made into the 1956 Hollywood movie). Ferber was born August 15, 1885, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to a Hungarian-born Jewish storekeeper and his Milwaukee, Wisconsin-born wife, Jacob Charles and Julia (Neumann) Ferber. After living in Chicago, Illinois, and Ottumwa, Iowa, at the age of 12 Ferber and her family moved to Appleton, Wisconsin, where she graduated from high school and briefly attended Lawrence University. She took newspaper jobs at the Appleton Daily Crescent and the Milwaukee Journal before publishing her first novel. She covered the 1920 Republican National Convention and 1920 Democratic National Convention for the United Press Association. Ferber’s novels generally featured strong female protagonists, along with a rich and diverse collection of supporting characters. She usually highlighted at least one strong secondary character who faced discrimination ethnically or for other reasons; through this technique, Ferber demonstrated her belief that people are people and that the not-so-pretty persons have the best character. Several theatrical and film productions have been based on her works, including Show Boat, Giant, Ice Palace, Saratoga Trunk, Cimarron (which won an Oscar) and the 1960 remake. Three of these works – Show Boat, Saratoga Trunk and Giant – have been developed into musicals. When composer Jerome Kern proposed turning the very serious Show Boat into a musical, Ferber was shocked, thinking it would be transformed into a typical light entertainment of the 1920s. It was not until Kern explained that he and Oscar Hammerstein II wanted to create a different type of musical that Ferber granted him the rights. Saratoga, based on Saratoga Trunk, was written at a much later date, after serious plots had become acceptable in stage musicals. In 1925, she won the Pulitzer Prize for her book So Big, which was made into a silent film starring Colleen Moore that same year. An early talkie movie remake followed, in 1932, starring Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent, with Bette Davis in a supporting role. A 1953 remake of So Big starred Jane Wyman in the Stanwyck role, and is the version most often seen today.

File:Emile Durkheim.jpgÉmile Durkheim

From Wikipedia David Émile Durkheim (French: [emil dyʁkɛm] or [dyʁkajm];[1] April 15, 1858 – November 15, 1917) was a French sociologist, social psychologist and philosopher. He formally established the academic discipline and — with Karl Marx and Max Weber — is commonly cited as the principal architect of modern social science and father of sociology.,,,,, Emile Durkheim was born in Épinal in Lorraine, coming from a long line of devout French Jews; his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had been rabbis.[8] He began his education in a rabbinical school, but at an early age, he decided not to follow in his family’s footsteps and switched schools.[8][9] Durkheim led a completely secular life. Much of his work was dedicated to demonstrating that religious phenomena stemmed from social rather than divine factors.Photo by Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

Nathan the Wise

From Wikipedia Nathan the Wise (original German title: Nathan der Weise) is a play published by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing in 1779. It is a fervent plea for religious tolerance. Its performance was forbidden by the church during Lessing’s lifetime; it was first performed in 1783 inBerlin. In 1922 it was adapted into a silent film of the same title. Set in Jerusalem during the Third Crusade, it describes how the wise Jewish merchant Nathan, the enlightened sultan Saladin, and the (initially anonymous) Templar bridge their gaps between Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Its major themes are friendship, tolerance, relativism of God, a rejection of miracles and a need for communication. File:Gottlieb-Recha Welcoming Her Father 1877.jpg   Recha Welcoming Her Father.
