Dorothy, I’m with you. And with the catch in your throat as you come close to tears...
It is very obvious Rachel:) Todah

I think many are still in shock, suspended state to be horribly upset yet, that may well follow!
I too am moved to tears by your empathy Rachel
My father’s family were passionate Zionists especially my grandmother. My father was sent to Zionist school in Slonim where he learned ivrit b’ivrit. This was in about 1910. After WW1 his father decided to emigrate to America where 2 sisters already lived. Sadly, my grandfather died before the trip with my father. My grandmother wanted to emigrate to Palestine. She sent my father alone (age 14). When my father grew into adulthood he tried to bring his mother, my aunts and uncle to NY. She refused! She only wanted to emigrate to Palestine. The all perished in the war!
ktav rashi came from the printer, Bomberg to keep it from being confused with the Biblical text. It was hundreds of years later. Rashi never saw it.
Slonim is in BelaRusse, right?
The entire Jewish community of Worms was tortured and killed during the Crusades.
1924 is when Yehuda Amichai is born in Germany. It offers some context along with the Putch of 1923
slonim is in Belarus now.
Thank you, Judy. Part of my family comes from Belarus, Minsk gubernia. Slonim had a highly regarded reputation as a religious location where Rabbis would come to visit and those in surrounding areas would go to visit them in Slonim.
We memorized this poem… In Flanders Fields… I think in junior high school. Never forgot it. Thanks for bringing it to this lesson.
Is anyone else having connection problems?
No. All good here
Whoa wrote that music?
that was great

Rabbi Mark Cohn
Beautiful, Yonit. What a delight to hear. Rachel - thank you for all your wonderful teaching!
wonderful rich voice,
wonderful class as always, and beautiful singing! thanks so much for this gift!
I have two questions
Very Very inspiring! We needed it! Thank you, Rachel and Yonit!-Gail Leving
To Rachel. A beautifully designed session. The songs were indeed pertinent to the class.
I am sorry. I have to leave. I have workers in my kitchen whom I need to speak to.
But I recall there was a relatively high return immigration rate (to Europe) from the different aliyot. #s?
what does that mean two aliyahs .. how did Jews make aliyah twice back then
The hypes about the land of Israel go back to lech l'cha for Abraham (and he experiences a famine upon arrival....)
THANK YOU , GREAT sessions, Aviva
Thank you Rachel, Yonit, and classmates - this is just what the Doctor (Tcehrnichovsky) ordered for today!
Many immigrants from Europe to America also returned to Europe. This is an immigrant pattern (still true).
please mute yourself, if you are not speaking. Too much background noise.
Some of us were working the polls during election day (including myself)
I like the timelines which can provide important context both within a poet's life and in other historical events.
G Thank you Rachel for this very powerful and honest class.What a treat your musician was tonight.
thanks you rachel for a wonderful session. Muriel wolf
Wisconsin decided for Biden I have Nat’l Jewish women’s politics org which is doing vote protection today, if anyone wants email. Send me yr email via private message I am Joanne or Stanleywhich is doing
Along with timelines and maps, you offer wonderful art and photos and Rachel’s stories of visiting Worms and the Heidelberg medical school. Much appreciated.
Suzanne sent you a message
We are "immigrants" more in the sense of not living (or studying) in the same place we grew up (or growing up in multiple places) albeit perhaps in the same (quite large) country.
Exactly my story- at 9, 11, 13, few months before my Bat Mitzvah, many years before you Suzanne. It was wonderful, fascinating.
Helene will try to email- Joanne
