To me and my siblings she was our mother who was always there for us. These are most difficult words for me to write. Today I got up from sitting shiva for my beloved mother, Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis. I looked for her but her chair was empty. The pain is raw. Where is my beautiful Ema? To the world she was The Rebbetzin.

It has a grammatical structure all its own, and is written in an alphabet based on Hebrew characters. Scholars and universities classify Yiddish as a Germanic language, though some have questioned that classification. They had their own international language known as Ladino or Judesmo, which is a hybrid of medieval Spanish and Hebrew in much the same way that Yiddish combines German and Hebrew.

The Daily Stormer’s Jew-hating style guide revealed
The Holocaust has scarred us, a yetzer hara sneaky bastard of a voice in our heads , that keeps trying to tell us how we are defined by our past, controlled by events that happened to us, instead of using those moments as points of growth. We, and by extension the rest of the world, have chosen to define the Holocaust with these images. But there are other images. Images that show a more subtle, more true, story. A story that shows our inner power, our inner turmoil in dealing with a situation we cannot comprehend, our attempts to gain justice, and our final steps into moving above and beyond our past and into a new future.
1. “In Jewish history there are no coincidences.” – Elie Wiesel. If you would have asked me my favorite Yiddish word, I would have said translates into the idea that Wiesel so beautifully captured as aphorism in my favorite quote.
On Wednesday, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former head of Yukos Oil was sentenced to 14 years in prison for embezzling and money laundering. Khodorkovsky will stay in prison where he belongs. But the oil oligarch thought Putin was weak, so he strengthened his contacts in Washington and dumped money into parliamentary elections. He unwisely assumed that he could defy Putin and extend his tentacles into politics following the model of corporate control he saw in the United States, where the courts, the congress, the White House and the media are all in the pocket of big business.
Only he misjudged Putin and ended up in the hoosegow. According to the Wall Street Journal: Khodorkovsky was arrested on a rented jet in Siberia Oct. Reportedly there were three cases of murder and one of attempted murder linked to Yukos, if not Khodorkovsky himself….. But Khodorkovsky is guilty.
The Quality of Innocence

Geoff Harcourt with his son Tim. Jessica Hromas “Airport economist” Tim Harcourt, 52, teaches at the University of NSW alongside his dad, leading economic theorist Geoff Harcourt, 86, whose influence accounts for his politics — if not their shared profession. Tim was an extraordinarily happy baby, until he was one and a half. He got measles on the boat back from the United Kingdom. I had been at Cambridge for 18 months on leave from the University of Adelaide, lecturing and refining the ideas of John Maynard Keynes.
When we came back he was miserable, pining for his old home. In the UK, we’d had this little Ford Prefect. In Adelaide, whenever a Ford Prefect drove by his face just lit up. He thought he was back in Cambridge. When he was four we all went to Japan for four months. On our return he suddenly realised he was home in Adelaide. He couldn’t keep the grin off his face for a week.
He is the most proudly Australian of our four children, even though he’s the only one born overseas. But that insecurity has probably never gone away.

Many historians assume SS head Heinrich Himmler stopped exterminating Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau in November and destroyed the crematoria and gas chambers there because the Russians were coming and he was trying to hide the evidence quickly. As he told Aish. The Germans could have killed the remaining Jews — eyewitnesses to their crimes.
By doing so, Himmler would achieve a separate peace with the West so they could turn on their common enemy, Stalin. Meanwhile, Americans worked to ensure the money never left Switzerland. Torah Values Drove Rescue Effort Reared a secular Jew, Wallace said he immersed himself in the Orthodox world for 17 years while researching the book and gained great respect for the culture.
The story could not have taken place without a basis in Torah values. Recha, her husband and a group of fellow Swiss rescuers were willing to do what it took to save Jewish lives, even bribe, pay ransom and deal with the enemy. She was deeply committed to her faith. One day he learned of a survivor with an unusual story.

It translates into the idea that Wiesel so beautifully captured as aphorism in my favorite quote. The older I get the more I am astonished by its truth, both in a national as well as personal sense. The seemingly haphazard, random, and arbitrary events that comprise the story of our lives begin to form a coherent and purposeful narrative when we view them from a divine perspective.

The book presents anecdotes and associated video clips that reveal the myriad ways that Jewish culture, religion, humor, music, song, and dance have found expression in parts of the world that, at first glance, might not seem supportive of Jewish Life.
It is true that the earliest prophets of political Zionism — Moses Hess Rome and Jerusalem, , Leon Pinsker Auto-Emancipation, and Theodor Herzl The Jewish State, — did not draw their inspiration from the Bible, but rather from the great nationalist spirit that swept through Europe at the end of the 19th century. Pinsker and Herzl actually cared little whether the Jews colonized Palestine or any other region of the globe; the first thought about some land in North America, while the second contemplated Argentina and later Uganda.
More important still than nationalism, what drove these intellectual pioneers was the persistence of Judeophobia or anti-Semitism:

Jewish men tend to be hardworking, successful, family orientated, and treat their partners like princesses. I breezed through the chapter, had a decent chuckle, and promptly forgot how in demand I was. With a shaven head and piercing green eyes, she walked like a queen amongst her subjects.
Smart, funny, and Jewish too. Stephanie introduced herself as a yid, presented herself as a yid, and hung out with another cute yid girl who I actually tried to date first. It turned out that Judaism and family were as important to her as it was to me. She performed poems about her Jewish background, and was unashamedly proud of her background.
We started dating, it escalated quickly, and pretty soon, she was coming over for shabbos with the family every Friday night. She may have looked and behaved a little unorthodox, but my mother was thrilled, my father was pushing wedding bells, and we decided to move in together after a couple of months. I was in the midst of filming my TV show, which required months of full time travel. Born and raised in England, I was looking forward to seeing her in her natural element.
My flight landed on a Friday afternoon, and Stephanie and her mom excitedly greeted me. It was a long drive into the countryside, where I met her Dad, who grew up in the small town where I went to college.
