No Dogs and Israelis

July 3, 2010

No Dogs and Israelis

No Dogs and Israelis

My name is Lior Zagury and I’m a very proud Israeli Jew.

Yes, it is important for me to present myself in this way, especially today when there is a feeling that there is a festival for anti-Semites.

I just came back yesterday from Poland after 8 days of having the privilege of guiding the Inter Disciplinary university students in the death camps. These students, studying in Israel were Jews, Christians and Muslims. Five huge armed commando Polish soldiers with rifles and pistols needed to secure our check in to EL-AL flight to Israel from the Warsaw airport.

I know that you got at least 100 e-mails about the flotilla to Gaza and I will not repeat what was said there. I want to speak about something much bigger that is happening now.

The header of my letter wasn’t taken from the streets of Berlin in 1933 when the Nazi’s came to power, not from the neighborhoods of Warsaw in 1941 when the Jews lived in the Ghetto, and not even from the shops of Kielce after the Second World War in 1946, just before the pogrom that made Jews understand that there isn’t a safe place for them and they need to leave Europe.

The header was taken from signs that were hanged at the entrance to big markets and offices in Turkey in the past few days, in June of 2010 and similar signs that were hung in Jordan. The signs say: “We do not receive dogs & Israelis” as you can see in the photo.

What we see around us is not about the flotilla and Gaza. It is a very sophisticated plan to demolish the legitimacy of the existence of the Jewish state of Israel.

In his first speech at the German Reichstag at 1/30/1933 Hitler said the cause of all the world problems is world Jewry. Most of the people didn’t take him seriously and felt very safe in their countries, trusting their governments. Twelve years later we lost 6 million Jews in the Holocaust in the worst way that human kind has ever known.

These days, 65 years after, Achmadinijad from Iran and many others say exactly the same. The history repeats itself. Most of the people do not take him seriously and feel very safe in their countries, trusting their governments…..

This is a wake up call.

If you will ignore it and convince yourselves that this is not the mainstream, this is just a passing storm and that it will never happen to us — sooner or later, you might find those restrictions in your backyard, in your favorite restaurant, in your great bar and in your amazing university as it was 75 years ago. A few months ago, an Arab restaurant in Haifa didn’t allow Israeli soldiers to come in and eat.

We need your support now more then ever. We need to raise our heads, speak in a very clear and loud voice and especially be one, united. I have a complete and strong confidence in our nation.

Israel has the most moral army in the world, it is the only democracy in the world that in each and every given moment there are thousands of missiles and rockets ready to be launched to the central of its cities from enemies that want to erase us, and the only place in the world that a Jew can just be a Jew and feel completely safe about it.

We promised NEVER AGAIN. Don’t wait to say we didn’t know.


Film about Jewish life in Mukacheve (Munkacs) in 1933 and more

February 26, 2010

For those of you who haven’t seen it already, you can now see the complete nine-minute film made about Jewish life in ukacheve/Munkacs/Munkatch, which is now in present day Ukraine, but at one time was either part of Hungary, Czechoslovakia or the Soviet Union.

What can you see in this short film?

You can see the wedding of Frime Chaye Rivke Shapira, who was the daughter of Grand Rebbe Eleazer Shapira of Munkacs to Rabbi Rabinowitz in March 1933.

She was mother to the present Munkatcher and Dinover Rebbes.

There are also other scenes from Munkacs, both secular and religious. There is the wedding and the many well wishers who helped celebrate the wedding in the streets of Munkacs. You can listen to the Munkacs Rebbe make a speech in Yiddish, telling all the Jews who were living in the U.S. at the time to keep the Sabbath. You can hear the cantor sing blessings at the wedding under the chupah.

Secondly, you can hear the Jewish children of Munkacs sing together. Thirdly you can see religious Jewish children studying at a religious school in Munkacs. Fourthly, you can see a young student seeking to buy a religious book from a book peddler. Lastly, you can see the joyous celebration of secular Jews dancing in Munkacs.

So this is one way we can travel back in time nearly seventy-seven years ago, albeit for just nine minutes. Even if we never had a relative who once lived in Munkacs, we can probably all appreciate the Jewish culture, the Jewish life that existed in Eastern Europe (and elsewhere) at the time.

The film clip can be found at The film clip will only be available on my site through March 7th, when hopefully new film clips, as part of the Museum’s Film Series, will be shown. Now, also through March 7th, you can see the “Dance of Death” scene from the Yiddish film “The Dybbuk,” as well as see Al Jolson, replete in cantorial garb, sing “Kol Nidre.” Links to these film clips can be found at the bottom of
