the violence: “no foreign propagandist bent upon blackening
Germany before the world could outdo the tale of burnings and
beatings, of blackguardly assaults on defenseless and innocent
people, which disgraced that country yesterday.” Of course, this
was nothing more than well meaning bluster. The nations of the
world chose the path of appeasement. Rather than marking in
the end of a petty dictatorship, Kristallnacht is remembered as the
beginning of the Holocaust.
Now, nearly 60 years later, the Night of Broken Glass is both a
reminder of the past and a warning for the future. The Jewish
people have a mandate beginning with Abraham to respond to
injustice in the strongest possible way. As those who suffered the
horrors of the Holocaust it is unthinkable that we would be silent
to the suffering of the stranger in our day.

          Anshe Emet Philanthropic Funds ... we appreciate your thoughtfulness.
   Your contribution to one of our many philanthropic funds not only supports the many activities and services of our synagogue, but is also a thoughtful way to
   commemorate special occasions, life cycle events, or to remember a loved one.
   Contributions may be made by calling 773-868-5126, or you may mail in your contributions to Anshe Emet Synagogue, 3751 N. Broadway, Chicago IL 60613.
   Contributions will appear in the monthly bulletin, and those whom you wish to notify will receive a beautiful commemoration card from the Synagogue.
   Contributions listed are those received by September 30, 2007. Donations received after that date will be listed in the December bulletin.
