    Jewish-American History on the Web ^ | December, 1888 | Alice Hyneman Rhine
    Unlike the mass of war literature of the period, the following sketch in place of treating of the generals in command is simply a chronicle of passages in the war record of the "rank and file." A humble sergeant, who among the many generous high-spirited young men volunteered in "61" to fight for the perpetuation of the Union, and who through a self-negation equal to Sidney's heroic act, suffered captivity and death in the prison pen at Andersonville. Elias Leon Hyneman, one of the martyrs of our Civil war, was the son of Rebekah Hyneman, a poetess whose position in...

  • Doofus of the Day: Ben Ehrenreich thinks ending Israel will bring "peace"

    Zionism is the problem The Zionist ideal of a Jewish state is keeping Israelis and Palestinians from living in peace. By Ben Ehrenreich It's hard to imagine now, but in 1944, six years after Kristallnacht, Lessing J. Rosenwald, president of the American Council for Judaism, felt comfortable equating the Zionist ideal of Jewish statehood with "the concept of a racial state -- the Hitlerian concept." For most of the last century, a principled opposition to Zionism was a mainstream stance within American Judaism. Even after the foundation of Israel, anti-Zionism was not a particularly heretical position. Assimilated Reform Jews like...

    What's the "Jewish Way" to "Lay People Off"? From the "Ethical Activist" who deprived of thousands of their livelihoods By Nathaniel Popper Behind the headlines about the massive layoffs sweeping the Jewish world are experiences like that of Rochelle Mancini. Mancini worked at the American Jewish Congress for 23 years until December, when her employer learned that it had lost much of its endowment in the alleged Ponzi scheme of Bernard Madoff. A few weeks later — just a day before New Year’s Eve — Mancini was called in late in the day and told the next day would be...

    With Jews worldwide facing an outbreak of anti-Semitism unprecedented since the days of the old Soviet Union, the trivial prattle of a gaggle of silly “yentas” on the daytime talk show “The View” is very low on my list of “stuff to be outraged about.” I do not watch this program, or television altogether, and when “The View” broadcast a program featuring actress Susie Essman promoting her new movie while repeating the most obnoxious and grotesque stereotypes about religious Jews, Chabad Jews in particular, I was asked by fellow blogger Debbie Schlussel to post a link to this program on...

    (MOBILE, Ala.) Jan.26 - Mobile police sources tell NBC 15 News they've arrested a man believed to be a domestic terrorist. The investigation began January 5, when a local synagogue was spray painted with Nazi markings. Mobile Police are not making an official comment yet, but sources within the department say they got a very dangerous man off the streets, just in time. Words of hate were spray-painted all over the Congregation Tree of Life synagogue three weeks ago. They are markings that shocked its congregation. Member Barbara Morgan couldn't believe it.

    Israel National News ^ | Dec. 2, 2008 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
    ( The verse in the Torah that was shot up by Mumbai terrorists reads: "The Almighty spoke to Moses after the death of Aaron's two sons…." It is from Leviticus [VaYikra], Chapter 16, Verse 1. The damaged Torah scroll was discovered when officials examined the Chabad House following the massacre of six Israelis by the Muslim terrorists who staged the mass slaughter at least 10 different places Wednesday night. They saw bullet holes in the Holy Ark where the scroll was kept and then examined it to see if it had been damaged. The verse refers to Nadav and Avihu,...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank – Muslims from the Middle East to Britain and Austria condemned Sunday the Mumbai shooting rampage by suspected Islamic militants as senseless terrorism, but also found themselves on the defensive once again about bloodshed linked to their religion. Intellectuals and community leaders called for greater efforts to combat religious fanaticism. Indian police said Sunday that the only surviving gunman told them he belongs to the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba. The group is seen as a creation of Pakistani intelligence to help fight India in the disputed Kashmir region. Another group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, has also operated in Kashmir. Both...
