Brooklyn Heights

Question: What are your hopes and wishes for the new year?


 

 


Off the bat, I hope that this year I will get married and have children. I also hope to continue down the path of cultivating my faith in God, which is the key to all spiritual blessings. I wish peace to all Klal Yisrael and that more Jews will take steps to make aliyah. I also hope for a positive change in our future president.

 — Chava Quist, veterinary medicine

 

 

 

 

 


My wishes are focused on Israel; I hope she emerges strong, with peace, and continues to be a beacon to people everywhere. I also want to spread the message of Jewish hope, as detailed in a book I wrote called Symphony on Fire: A Story of Music and Spiritual Resistance During the Holocaust, which celebrates the Jewish commitment to life and the triumph of the human spirit.

 — Sonia Beker, teacher and author


 

 

 


An end to personal and collective acrimony and a flourishing of ahavas chinam. I hope this will help bring about the coming of Moshiach speedily and in our time so that we can reunite with our loved ones in olam habah.

— Eli Chomsky, Jewish Press copy editor

 

 

 


I suppose a consolidation of everything I would want for the new year would be everything falling in its place and occurring at the right time. I also wish stability for Israel. Being that this is my senior year at Pratt I hope it will be a successful one that culminates in my getting a good job.

 — Elke Revasudin, self-employed


 

 

 


Israel should have a strong and successful army. I wish good health for everyone because once you have that, everything else falls into place.

 — Iris Katzner, food broker

What makes this diary so historically significant is that it is not just the private memoir of Dr. Seidman. Rather, it is a reflection of the suffering of Klal Yisrael at that time.

Rabbi Lau is a world class speaker. When he relates stories, even concentration camp stories, the audience is mesmerized. As we would soon discover, he is in the movie as well.

Each essay, some adapted from lectures Furst prepared for live audiences, begins with several basic questions around a key topic.

In a time when service to one’s community seems to be a forgotten ideal, it is our pleasure to continue sharing with you the stories of those men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

The Jewish Press recently sat down with Chaya Lipschutz, a Brooklyn woman who saved the life of a stranger.

In the past, people used to turn to coffee or orange juice to get through a midday slump, but today, many are turning to power and energy drinks for a quicker and longer-lasting jolt. The power drink industry is booming with projected sales of $9 billion and no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

Every week nearly three million viewers tune into the Bravo cable channel to watch the hit reality franchise “The Real Housewives” – several shows that follow the lives of affluent housewives and professional women residing in several American metropolitan areas (“The Real Housewives of New York,” “The Real Housewives of Los Angeles,” of Miami, of Atlanta, etc.).

Not too many Jewish World War II survivors from Germany can say that they had the distinction of being both interned in a concentration camp and liberating the captives in that same camp. Erwin Weinberg did just that.

Recently I had the opportunity to spend some times with Bernard (Bernie) Walz and get a glimpse of his war experiences.

As I approached the home of Irving and Miriam Borenstein in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn, two things became clear: the pride they feel at being Jewish and their joy at living in America. On their front lawn are large American and Israeli flags with a plaque in front which reads:

Never forget the six million murdered in the Holocaust and the three thousand murdered on 9/11.

May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.
