A Letter of Pride from Hungarian Jew
I'm from Hungary, I'm Jewish and I'm proud of it. Even though there a lot of
fascists, even in the Parliament. We know what caring for each other really
means. We have to face the skinheads almost every day, when we walk on the
streets everybody looks with strange eyes, but we can feel the security because
we know that we have a strong community that protects us. WE PROTECT EACH OTHER!
In the synagogues I can feel the warm atmosphere.
WE'RE ALL IN THE SAME FAMILY, GOT THE SAME RELIGION, SAME RITUALS, SAME
LANGUAGE, SAME GOD, SAME FEARS.
Mark Lazar of Montreal Writes with Pride:
The 105,000 Jews of Montreal contribute more to Federation Combined Jewish
Appeal than do the 3.4 million residents of Montreal (including the Jews) to
Montreal's United Way!
Gerard Contributed the following:
General Washington's financial advisor and assistant was a Jewish man by the
name of Hyam Salomon. During the cold winter months at Valley Forge when
American soldiers were freezing and running out of food, it was Hyam who
marshaled all the Jews in America and Europe to provide money in relief aid to
these stranded American troops and turned the course of history. Without this
help, Washington's Continental Army, and the fate of the American Colonies would
have perished before they could have defeated the British.
If you take a one dollar bill out of your pocket and look at the back at the
Eagle, the stars above the Eagle's head are in the six point Star of David to
honor Jews. If you turn the Eagle upside down you will see a configuration in
the likeness of a Menorah....both at the insistence of George Washington who
said we should never forget the Jewish people and what they have done in the
interest of America. Kind of nice to know about, don't you think? This is the
seal of the United States of America.
