I have a good friend who plays this instrument. It is quite amazing when played well … like this!

And also (in reaction to Kishinev) the public activities of Jewish organizations in the US and the engagement of the US government in reaction to this, etc.
Reuven Greenvald

New book about Kishinev with new information discovered in archives. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/24/books/review/steven-zipperstein-pogrom.html

I would rather this be read by a Rudyard Kipling accent!
Heather Silverman
01:41:55
What is that?
Alan Carpien
01:42:42
Gunga Din - Burma Days -- up scale British accent doesn't read well on this.

I believe that Pres. Truman condemned the slaughter, but as we know worse filled in the 40’s.
Ed Grossman

Roosevelt, Teddy.
Alan Carpien
01:43:44
Winston Churchill could say it better. We will fight on the beaches.

The whole TANACH is not history -- it is our memory. Is "history" a weak discussion of what our memory should be?
Suzie Lampert
01:55:21
what is history, but a version of events presented through (usually) the one in powers perspective?
Lynnie Mirvis
01:56:03
there are still facts—documents!!
Alan Carpien
01:56:18
No -- our history in the TANACH - is the history of losers.
Yael Gott
01:56:24
PLEASE MUTE IF YOU ARE NOT SPEAKING
Suzie Lampert
01:57:03
Of course there are - but perhaps we need all the perspectives and versions to compile a truth that illuminates all sides of a conflict
Lynnie Mirvis
01:57:27
and poetry
Suzie Lampert
01:57:38
absolutely!!
Alan Carpien
01:58:25
So - we will die by the "truth?" Nice - but would we be in this class if we decided to illuminate all sides? Those nice Russians in Kishiniev?
Suzie Lampert
01:59:55
Of course we are drawn to our perspective!! The truth that resonates for us - history has many perspective - the perpetrators, up standers and bystanders - my bias is not to feel for the perpetrators
Alan Carpien
02:00:52
So how many perspectives do you analyze? The trains ran on time?
Suzie Lampert
02:01:22
there in lies the rub…..not simple at all and not easy to answer
Rosemary Linsider
02:01:25
Please use privatc chat for personal conversations.
Alan Carpien
02:01:56
Sure - if it is controversial -- make it private.
Rosemary Linsider
02:02:34
No, it blocks the text on the screen and is distracting. Thank you.
Alan Carpien
02:03:15
Agreed - why do you say it blocks the screen when you don't like what is said. I agree - no chats - ha!

Dorothea Dorenz

Agreed: the poem let’s us know what these pogroms really meant for Jews through the ages which is much more than the statistics.
A Ginsburg

Rabbi Braude worked in Providence RI at the same time that Michael Bohnen's father was a Rabbi there.
