Today’s read is from Jonathan Feldstein who was born and educated in the U.S. and immigrated to Israel in 2004. He is married and the father of six.

On the night of November 9, 1938, Germans egged on by five years of increased rabid anti-Semitism, sanctioned and inspired by the ruling Nazis, destroyed more than 1000 synagogues, burned and looted more than 7500 Jewish businesses, and desecrated many Jewish cemeteries.  Observing and understanding this anniversary is all the more critical in the wake of the anti-Semitic Pittsburgh massacre.  While hatred of Jews is sadly not new, one thing new today is the solidarity among Jews and Christians standing united against anti-Semitism.
