Correction: Crimean Rabbi Boards the Last Train Out

Clarification and Update:

Wording in the title of the article “Rabbi in Crimea Escapes with Torah Scroll” tas been changed to “Rabbi in Crimea Makes it Out on the Last Train“, to avoid any potential misunderstanding that Rabbi Yitzchok Meyer Lipszyc may have stolen the Torah from the Crimea war zone, or abandoned his community in its time of need.

The Torah was moved to a safer location in Simferopol, and Rabbi Lipszyc was advised by his superiors at Chabad headquarters to temporarily move his center of operations out of Crimea. The Rabbi is still working with his community via Skype, phone and email.

JewishPress.com apologizes for any misunderstanding the title may have caused if read out of context from the text of the article.

    I am NOT there but I am confused. There is 3,000 Jews in Crimea. The Ukrainian government said to their soldiers "take you and your families out of Crimea. So why are the Jews still there? If they are 100% Jews. Meaning, if your birth mother is Jewish or if she converted according the laws of G-d, not conservative or reform then you are a Jew. There are no half Jews. Hopefully, your mother married a Jew and NOT a member of the nations. That is why we are only 13.2 million Jews in the world and over 3 billion Chinese. So if you know Jewish history, Noach had 3 sons. Shem is the Jew. His uncle 80 years later is Sin, Hebrew for China. So the Jews started first and we are less than 1% of the world. The Chinese started later than us. Answer: "Inter-marriage.
