Hell on Earth
June 29, 2018
Author: Matt Sieger

I am as guilty as the next guy in labeling things “hell” too glibly. By contrast, there are some truly horrendous experiences that you or those close to you may have had to endure, for which hell may be an apt metaphor.

Jesus and Jewish Suffering: a Perspective from Paris
April 21, 2014
Author: Joshua Turnil

If one were to give a hard and honest look at the heritage of Israel’s heroes, one would be forced to concede that it is not a triumphant past. Moses, at his apogee, came down from a holy mountain experience only to be “welcomed” by collective and unmitigated disloyalty in the shadow of the infamous…

March 28, 2013
Author: Andrew Barron

I have learned a lot about God from the Holocaust. This may sound unsettling, but I’ve come to feel that much can be learned in the crucible of that catastrophe of 40 years ago. The Founder of Jews for Jesus, Moishe Rosen, says…

Yartzheit for the Cardinal
May 30, 2008
Author: Joshua Turnil

Jean-Marie Lustiger walked nervously up to the dais to preside over his first mass. The church was packed and the silence palpable.

If you want life, expect pain
July 1, 1989
Author: Susan Perlman

Another Holocaust?

Another holocaust? Perish the thought! How can we bear to think of another horror when the European holocaust massacred six million Jewish people, one third of all Jews living at the time. Of the six million, one million were children. PAINFUL MEMORIES Difficult to Face Only in the last several years have our Jewish people…

In the Midst of Sorrow
January 4, 1981

Each Jew must develop some personal perspective on the horrors of Nazi Germany. Different conclusions have been drawn, and they are reflected in the literature of post-Holocaust Western Jewry.

God was mourning over the dead, the persecuted, those whose minds were scrambled with the lust for power. God was suffering along with every humiliation and each act of violence. God was weeping over the lost souls who were hurled namelessly into eternity. WHY DID GOD JUST SIT BACK AND LET IT HAPPEN? WHY DIDN’T…
