FROM JERUSALEM
WITH HOPE
The General Assembly of the World Jewish Congress (WEC) was held from October 30 to November 1 in Jerusalem
LOST
TORAH
Neither citizenship and nationality, nor the country of residence and ethnic origin, nor the language and the topic. None of them is the universal factor that undoubtedly determines that a certain author belongs to a certain culture, especially to the Jewish one.
JEWISH AMBASSADOR
OF UKRAINE
The Ukrainian delegation to the USA headed by A. Kinakh held meetings with representatives of the USA Jewish community. They spoke about the situation and Jewish life in Ukraine.
SINISTER
ANECDOTE
The initial official version of the Ukrainian military about their non-involvement in the incident was hardly believable at once. One could wonder what they would say when everything was cleared up.

NEW BOOKS

Shchyolokov A. Destroy Israel... - M.: Vargus, 2001

The political thriller "Destroy Israel..." came from print not long before the monstrous acts of terrorism in New York and Washington. The author, being an specialist in Oriental studies andIslam, foresaw how far fanatics could go in realizing the idea of creating Islamic caliphate.

Arabic sheikhs and Uzbek extremists, Afghan talibs and Chechen bandits are the characters of the author's version of how the nuclear weapons were taken over and attack on Israel was launched. The goal of the operation was to radically change the geopolitical situation in the Middle East...

The plot of Shchyolokov's book would have seemed fantastic before September 11, 2001. Now it is taken as a fatal prophecy, an absolutely real scenario of Islamic terrorists' actions, a part of their global war plan against the civilized world for creating a new world order.


Zyama. This is Gerdt! - N.Novgorod: Dekom, 2001

The release of the book about Zinoviy Gerdt was timed to the actor's 85th anniversary.

The materials for the book were gathered by the actor's widow Tatyana Pravdina. "This is a book of recollections of those people, whom Gerdt loved", - she said in an interview for RIA "Novosti. 32 chapters are 32 authors, 32 people of different professions and age. The chapters in the book go in a chronological order according to the time when the person came into Zinoviy Gerdt's life. Every chapter starts with my introduction, where I tell about this person and the way they met with Gerdt".

The book starts with the chapter by Isay Kuznetsov, who knew Gerdt before the war, and ends with the writer Matvey Geyzer. Mikhail Shveyzer, Eldar Ryazanov, Lyudmila Gurchenko, Alexander Shirvindt and many others share their memories about the great actor.

The book is richly illustrated - mainly with photos from private archives, published for the first time.
