Yesterday marked a tremendous stride forward for Haitian amputees and others severely injured by the earthquake: the dedication of a rehabilitation clinic and prosthetic workshop developed by JDC together with Israel’s Magen David Adom and Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer Hospital as well as the Haitian Red Cross and the HUEH (l’Hôpital de l’Université d’Etat d’Haïti). These modernized facilities are the first of their kind in Haiti.
Today’s is a date not easily forgotten: November 9th, 1938 marked the beginning of Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass), the series of pogroms committed by Hitler’s stormtroopers and civilians alike against Jews in Nazi Germany and Austria. Jewish homes, stores, and synagogues were ransacked and destroyed, leaving streets filled with the glass that gives this event its name.
This coming Sunday, JDC proudly participates in the Global Day of Jewish Learning, reaffirming its 20-plus year relationship with Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz and his bold mission to make key sources of Jewish knowledge accessible to Jews of all backgrounds worldwide. The Global Day, a project of Steinsaltz’s Aleph Society, celebrates the completion of the Rabbi’s 45-volume annotation and translation of the Talmud into Modern Hebrew, with parts also translated into four other languages.
