Perhaps the most difficult and emotional room in the museum is a memorial to victims of the 1929 riots and slaughter. At least 67 Jews were murdered in Hebron, with over 70 injured.One Man Reflects on the Lessons of Hebron’s Tragic Past, and What They Could Mean for Israel’s Future

Last week a young woman from Toronto visited me at my office here in Hebron. She told that her name was Slonim, that her family was from Hebron, that her family was miraculously saved during the 1929 massacre.

I told her, yes, members of the Slonim family were holed up in Rabbi Ya'akov Slonim's home.

Tel Aviv’s Yad Eliyahu Stadium was filled to capacity for this week’s Dirshu Siyum HaShas.The rows of light-blue seats were filled to capacity on Monday night in Heichal Nokia (Nokia Stadium, also known as Yad Eliyahu Stadium), Tel Aviv’s premier sports arena. But instead of the usual rowdy crowd of sports fans clad in the team colors and singing their team’s theme song, I found myself staring at a huge, diverse group of Israel’s foremost Torah scholars, here to celebrate what many consider to be the Torah Jew’s dream-come-true: the Siyum HaShas.

(Photo courtesy America-Israel Friendship League)Kenneth Bialkin may not be a distinguished rabbi, but he is, without a doubt, one of the great Jewish personalities of our time.
