KIEV PURIM

THE MAIN THING IS
THE JEWISH SOUL
Some businessmen does not want to be related to the Jewish life - says Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the JCU Mark Kotlyarevsky.

In my book "Stories of Jewish Heroism" I published the list of "One hundred outstanding Jews - from Moses to the authors of "Superman" complied in the USA; and "One hundred outstanding Jews - immigrants from Ukraine. Having read the article by Vitaliy Nakhmanovich "The Lost Tora" ("Jewish Observer"; # 12(15) - # 13(16)) I made up a conclusion that, from his point of view, there are only 3 genuine Jews in these lists: Moses, Boal Shem-Tov - founder of Hasidism and Menahem-Mendl Shneyerson - Lubavich rebe. Even Sholom-Aleikhem, according to Nakhmanovich's judgements, can't be considered a proper Jew. Read


DEAR COLLEAGUES!

If you organize a discussion in your newspaper about Mikhail Dor's article The next stop - Africa, you'll find many responses all over the CIS countries. In my opinion that I have repeatedly expressed, kheseds in the CIS countries were first created as charitable organizations, but now they were turned into the instrument of the "Joint" officials. They all have the same style of work, the use of the same phrases and the same "back" that protects them.

When Kishinev ghetto prisoners were dissatisfied that the khesed distributed money in the wrong way, they applied to the "Claims Conference". It was Asher Ostrin who talked to the leaders and everything resumed its normal course.

Haven't you noticed that members of the Russian "Joint" office feel quite safe and unsinkable - they aren't fired, but shuffled like cards during the game - if you made a slip - here is another republic for you.

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Larisa Reihrudel,
the President of the Jewish Women
of Baku (Azerbaijan) Humanitarian association.
