Destruction in pictures: Book created at Bergen-Belsen

Destruction in pictures: Book created at Bergen-Belsen

THE BOOK is rare, unusual and horrifying.

Its title, listed on separate pages in Yiddish, English, German and Hebrew — Our Destruction in Pictures — states explicitly what lies inside the book’s covers.

Within are 115 photographs, some fairly benign, some troubling and some horrific, that visually tell the story of what happened to the Jews of Europe during the Holocaust perpetrated by Nazi Germany.

The large format volume — in reality, a bound photo album with captions — was published in 1946 by a group calling itself the Central Committee of the Liberated Jews in the British Zone.


If you could save a terrorist, what should you do?

Several years ago, a terrorist attempted to kill a Jewish boy in the center of Jerusalem. Thank G-d, the boy was only slightly wounded. People at the scene chased angrily after the terrorist, seeking revenge.

Did this woman act in accordance with Jewish law by saving the terrorist?

Out on the open Kansas prairie, about 80 miles north of Wichita, Reese’s Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch ...

Not just fruit: Tu b'Shevat a chance for personal growth

Not just fruit: Tu b'Shevat a chance for personal growthLOS ANGELES — For the last three years, I’ve celebrated Tu b’Shevat — the Jewish New Year of the Trees — by organizing a participatory seder in a nearby canyon-top park. The seder usually includes about 10 to 15 people from my group, the Movable Minyan — a small, lay-led, independent congregation that needs every member’s active participation in order to thrive. We meet in the parking lot, and from there, bags of seder supplies in hand, we take a short hike up past oak trees to a ...

CAJE speaker brings many incarnations to spirituality

CAJE speaker brings many incarnations to spiritualityRABBI DR. Elie Kaunfer, 42, an intense, studious figure, unconsciously evokes his previous incarnations as a journalist, banker and corporate fraud investigator. He sits upright in his chair, slim hands spread over a blank table. His piercing eyes hold court behind invisible-rimmed glasses. Smiles and laughter intervene unexpectedly. Although Kaunfer retains the investigative instinct, the subject matter has changed drastically since the days of documents and spread sheets. Now his passion is...
