Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communites

By:

Chronicles-logo

As I said the other day to a co-worker of mine who is Jewish, I am truly sorry and feel your pain. What I fail to understand is how anyone can lend so much credence to a disenchanted and discernibly immature runaway wife who had hardly begun to understand what life is all about before turning her back on and bolting from the very people who stepped in to care for her when she was down and out.

Please allow me to wish all of your readers a Happy Purim. I have fond memories of sharing homemade hamantashen with a “chussid” I used to work with.

Sal your Shabbos Goy

Dear Sal,

Thank you for your moving message. You are truly a mensch for taking the time and trouble to express your thoughts and heartfelt support.

I join you in wishing my fellow Jews a joyous and enlightening Purim. In merit of our compassionate and charitable ways, may Hashem, the ultimate Healer, fix all broken souls, abolish animosity and prejudice from among all people and deliver us from our enemy’s evil designs, as He did in the days of Mordechai and Esther.

Simchas Purim!

    Thanks Sal for taking the time to defend a religion and a culture that’s been spuriously maligned. It’s truly said that Deborah missed out on the genuine experience. There’s tremendous beauty in Jewish family life. We’re fortunate to have a strong family structure, with our religion giving us a structured yet flexible framework. In the typical Jewish home, the kids look up to their parents, depend on them for guidance, and their home is a place in which they feel safe, loved, and secure. A home in which the parents, despite being busy (popping out ‘lots of babies’ – I’m paraphrasing DF here) are happy to be raising their kids and are happy to do all the hard work required to reap the heaps of nachas that’s their reward at the end of the day. Wissotzky Tea just put out a video that just about captures the beauty and joy of Jewish life – check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KxEeL-HcIY.

A highlight of the evening was the video produced by the Kleinman Family Holocaust Education Center on the legendary Agudah askan Reb Elimelech (Mike) Tress, a true Jewish hero.

Until recently his films were largely forgotten, but with their release last year on DVD by Re:Voir Video in Paris they are once again available.

Though the CCAR supported the Jewish right to emigrate to Eretz Yisrael, it strenuously objected to defining Palestine as the Jewish homeland.

“Well, you are also part of this class! If someone drills a hole in the boat, the boat will ultimately sink, and even the innocent ones will perish as well. The whole class must be punished!”
