Jerusalem, die Heilige

Simone Paganini* | 01.06.2018

"Warum sollten die Araber Frieden machen? Wenn ich ein arabischer Anführer wäre, ich würde mich niemals mit Israel einigen. Das ist klar: wir haben ihr Land genommen.

On This Passover We Ask: Are We Truly Free?

Ron Kronish | 02.04.2018

One of the most famous passages of the Passover seder is called “Ha Lachma Anya — This is the bread of affliction.” It is sometimes referred to as the “invocation.” It is the moment when the leader of the seder welcomes all the guests at the seder, especially those who are in need, and invites them to celebrate Passover with everyone at the table.
