Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – The Streets of Jerusalem, Episode 64

The Streets of Jerusalem with special guest Rabbi Dr. Reb Mimi Feigelson and is Episode 64 of A Dash of Drash. 

This episode comes live from Jerusalem in a period that some call “the Israeli High Holidays,” moving from Yom HaShoah, commemorating the Holocaust, to Yom HaZikkaron, memorial day for the fallen soldiers and victims of terror and Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. This year marks Israel’s 70th birthday. Rabbi Marc’s teacher and friend Reb Mimi (Rabbi Doctor Reb Mimi Feigelson) has recently moved back home to Jerusalem after 16 years living in the US. She teaches and mentors rabbinic students and teaches Torah and Hassidut. Together Reb Mimi and Rabbi Marc reflect on the implications of Israel at 70 and Jerusalem in particular, in all its complexity, joy and pain.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
