Excerpt from The Jews of to-Day "Life is interesting, if not happy," Sir John Seeley used to say. The same may be said of the Jews who have had the unfortunate knack of attracting the world's attention to themselves for the last two thousand years, with results often disastrous to themselves. Formerly the interest was theological. The Jews were the solitary exception to the Christian consensus. Yet, curiously enough, just as theology is losing its hold on the world's attention, the interest in the Jew has risen again to the same heights as before. Indeed, the modern Jew is anomalous enough to attract the attention of a world curious, above all things, about anomalies. The most modem of men with the most ancient of faiths, sceptical yet loyal, materialist and idealist in one, cosmopolitan yet priding himself on his patriotism, conspicuous among both capitalists and socialists, exploiter and exploited, the Jew remains the Sphinx of the nations, asking the sempiternal Jewish question. Or, rather, he is always raising a whole Cadmean crop of questions, economic, demographic, religious, social, eugenical, even political. Are the Jews of to-day the direct descendants of the Israelites of old? Will Judaism survive the assaults of modern criticism and sceptisim? Are Jews a people, a nation, a sect or a race?

Excerpt from The Jews of to-Day There is even a certain scientific interest about investigations into Jewish phenomena. Thus the question about the purity of the Jewish race, on which so much has been written of recent years, has a direct bearing on the opposition noticed by the late Sir Francis Galton, between the nature and the nurture of men. In other words, does birth or training deter mine human characteristics? The Jews throw light upon this subject whether they are a distinctive race or not. If they are, their common Characteristics shown in such different parts of the world is evidence of the influence of breed or nature. If they are not, the same characteristics prove the influence of nurture, education or environment. Jewish characteristics have even been made the subject of discussion in the struggle now going on between the Mendelians and the Biometricians. The former assert, the latter deny, that Jewish features are hereditable in mixed marriages, according to the Mendelian Law.

"Bartov, a leading Holocaust scholar, discovers that to make sense of the heartbreaking events of the war, he must first grapple with the complex interethnic relationships and conflicts that have existed there for centuries. Visiting twenty Ukrainian towns, he recreates the histories of the vibrant Jewish and Polish communities who once lived there - and describes what is left today following their brutal and complete destruction."--BOOK JACKET.

Traces the role of Judaism and the Jewish people in God's plan for the salvtion of mankind, from Abraham through the Second Coming, as revealed by the Catholic faith and by a thoughtful examination of history. It will give both Jews and Christians a deeper understanding of Judaism, both as a religion in itself and as a central component of salvation history. The book examines the unique and central role Judaism plays in the destiny of the world. It documents that throughout history attacks on Jews and Judasim have been rooted, not in Christianity, but in the most anti-Christian of forces. Areas addressed in depth include: the Messianic prophecies in Jewish Scripture; the very anti-Christian roots of Nazi anti-Semitism; the links between Nazism and Arab anti-Semitism; the theological insights of well-known Jewish converts; and the role of the Jews in the Second Coming.

FOREWORD BY THE AUTHOR. Monument to Bogdan Khmelnitsky in Kiev - a monument to the hetman of Ukraine Bogdan Khmelnitsky. Solemnly opened on July 23 (July 11 according to the old style) in 1888 on Sophia Square in Kiev as part of the celebration of the 900th anniversary of the Baptism of Russia. It is one of the symbols of Kiev, a work of art of the XIX century. We will tell you a true story about the life of the Jewish population under the yoke of Bohdan Khmelnitsky. For many Jews, the second in hatred after Hitler is the Ukrainian Cossack hetman Bogdan Khmelnitsky. The rebellious Cossacks staged pogroms, smashed synagogues, burned holy books, and the Jews themselves were mercilessly killed. In the city of Nemirov alone, 16,000 Jews died in one day. Researchers of this period, especially Jewish ones, describe terrible pictures of the massacres of Ukrainian Cossacks against Jews. In fact, the eighth national Holocaust occurred in the history of the Jewish people. Detachments of peasants and townspeople smashed estates, killed Jewish managers and tenants. Jews died in large numbers in Pereyaslav, Piryatin, Lokhvitsa and Lubny. Jewish chroniclers describe the brutal reprisals against Jews in Nemirov, Tulchin, Polonnoy, Zaslavl, Ostrog, Staro-Konstantinov, Chernihiv, Starodub, Gomel in many other places. The day of the Nemirov massacre was celebrated among the Jews as a day of mourning for the events of 1648. The destruction of the Jewish population by the troops of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, in addition to physical destruction, set itself the goal of forcing the Jews to abandon their faith in the One Lord, the God of Israel. This is how the contemporary of these events, the historian and chronicler Nathan ben Moses Hanover (1610-1683), the Rabbi in Iasi, describes it: “Anyone who changes his faith will survive; let him sit under this banner.” Cossacks said to Jews. But no one (from the Jews) answered. Then he opened the gate of the garden and embittered Orthodox entered it and killed many Jews by all means of killing existing in the world. In the story of the defeat of Jewish communities by rebels, the author’s personal memoirs and eyewitness accounts are heard, written sources are cited. Jewish and Polish chronicles of the uprising underline the many victims. Estimates of up to 100,000 dead Jews are common in historical literature from the late 20th century.

Rabbi Joseph Telushkin combed the Bible, the Talmud, and the whole spectrum of Judaism's sacred writings to give us a manual on how to lead a decent, kind, and honest life in a morally complicated world. "An absolutely superb book: the most practical, most comprehensive guide to Jewish values I know." —Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People Telushkin speaks to the major ethical issues of our time, issues that have, of course, been around since the beginning. He offers one or two pages a day of pithy, wise, and easily accessible teachings designed to be put into immediate practice. The range of the book is as broad as life itself: • The first trait to seek in a spouse (Day 17) • When, if ever, lying is permitted (Days 71-73) • Why acting cheerfully is a requirement, not a choice (Day 39) • What children don't owe their parents (Day 128) • Whether Jews should donate their organs (Day 290) • An effective but expensive technique for curbing your anger (Day 156) • How to raise truthful children (Day 298) • What purchases are always forbidden (Day 3) In addition, Telushkin raises issues with ethical implications that may surprise you, such as the need to tip those whom you don't see (Day 109), the right thing to do when you hear an ambulance siren (Day 1), and why wasting time is a sin (Day 15). Whether he is telling us what Jewish tradition has to say about insider trading or about the relationship between employers and employees, he provides fresh inspiration and clear guidance for every day of our lives.
