| July 20, 2017

An autobiography of the life of Holocaust survivor Cantor Moshe S. Kraus likely would not exist if not for the help of members of the Cleveland Jewish community. Krauss book, The Life of Moshele Der Zinger: How My Singing Saved My Life, tells the story of how Kraus survived the Holocaust and continued his life, and is the result of many hours of interviews with Rabbi Moshe Berger, scholar in residence at Young Israel of Greater Cleveland.In addition, Lyndhurst resident and Oheb Zedek-Cedar Sinai Synagogue congregant Larry Mervine was included in the acknowledgements section of Krauss book, and according to Kraus, helped make the book possible in all kinds of ways.

| July 20, 2017

In an echo of comments by far-right leader Marine Le Pen, Jean-Luc Melenchon says: ‘Never, at any moment, did the French choose murder and anti-Semitic criminality’ Jean-Luc Melenchon, France’s populist left-wing leader, blasted French President Emmanuel Macron for his admission that the Vichy government was indeed the French government during World War II, and that it and not the Nazis were responsible for deporting French Jews. In an angry 2,000-word blog, Melenchon took the newly-elected president to task for a range of policy missteps, but saved the bulk of his wrath for the remarks Macron made in the presence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

‘Christian Zionism’ Grabs Spotlight As Mike Pence Addresses CUFI – Forward

| July 18, 2017

On Monday, Vice President Mike Pence delivers the keynote speech at the annual summit of Christians United For Israel signaling what some see as a new ideological shift for the White House. His speech marks a fundamental change in the language that the White House has historically employed to articulate the United States relationship with Israel, Dan Hummel a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, wrote in the Washington Post. That fundamental change is towards Christian Zionism, an ideology that bases its political support for Israel on the belief that the modern state of Israel is a manifestation of prophecies in the Bible and that the very fate of the United States is prophetically linked with Israel.

| July 18, 2017

Hungary welcomes Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu today (18 July) on a landmark visit that Prime Minister Viktor Orbn hopes will bolster him in his battle with George Soros and deflect charges of stoking anti-Semitism. It brings together two right-wingers enamoured of US President Donald Trump and with a disdain for the left-leaning liberal global order bankrolled, as they see it, by the likes of Soros, the US financier and philanthropist.

Is UK’s Sephardi rabbi fracas about more than condoning homosexuality? – The Times of Israel

| July 17, 2017

LONDON Those close to the Rabbi Joseph Dweck affair have described is as a behemoth of an issue. Its a suitably biblical term for what might seem, on the face of it, an arcane spat between British religious scholars over the permissibility or not of homosexuality. But, in fact, the repercussions of a lecture which seemingly condoned homosexual relationships that Dweck delivered in London this past May go far beyond that
