Remembering Ezra Schwartz

BOSTON — For some two-and-a-half hours, Ezra Schwartz was remembered for his unbridled joy and passion for life, his deep and ever-widening circle of friends, and his athletic prowess as a champion baseball player and adventure-seeking skier.

Smartphones shut off; text messages ignored. Four days later, three local experts contacted by the Intermountain Jewish News are still dissecting the carnage and implications. Although new details are constantly emerging, one thing is clear. ISIS has vowed to launch a “coming storm” that will engulf Paris, Europe and the US. When ISIS-affiliated Islamic terrorists hit Paris in Jan...

Denver Jewish institutions proactive on security

Denver Jewish institutions proactive on securityDENVER JEWS were no less shocked and horrified than anyone else last week to hear of the terrorist attacks in Paris, but they might have been slightly less surprised. Perhaps because of weeks of numerous lone wolf Palestinian attacks against Israelis, steadily growing reports of anti-Semitic violence across Europe — and, much closer to home, the possibility of threats against Denver Jewish institutions — Denver Jewry was already on high alert status well before the Paris tragedies unfolded ...
