The Rebirth Of A Faith

Full story: The Day

The first rabbis since the Holocaust were ordained in Germany on Thursday, the latest marker in the gradual return of Judaism to a nation that once tried to eradicate all vestiges of Jewish life.

No, dó it, though I say it with mixed feelings, if there isn't any Diaspora-community left I wouldn't have my synagogue-visits, meetings with Rabbi's and I didn't had my Jewish friends.

I want to convert to Judaism btw.

I believe both sides know what they are doing. The Germans realize they need this redemption - and the German rabbis realize that they have a calling in Germany just as they do elsewhere.

Kearney, you're completely wrong. If the German government and the rabbis are okay with it, then it's perfectly alright. You should have no say in the matter, especially since you don't live in Germany.

It's very touching and inspiring to see the rebirth of Jewish cultural life in Germany. "amused" is completely spot-on: it's good to see the normalization of Judaism, instead of it being viewed as a matter for shame on the side of the non-Jewish Germans, or as a moral stick on the side of Germans of the Mosaic faith...

Germany actually has the fastest growing Jewish community in Europe.
