Shoppers have been outraged over the discovery of an Amazon seller’s newest line of baby apparel: Jewish baby bibs. The bibs may be in possible violation of the online giant’s policy prohibiting products that glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance. Following the criticism, Amazon pulled several variations of the products.

Two years since Chabad launched a centre in the lower Laurentian town of Saint-Sauveur, a lot has changed. The centre remains an important resource for Jewish families who either live in the town of 10,000 or spend their weekends or summers there or in neighbouring areas like Piedmont, Esterel, Sainte-Adèle, Sainte-Anne-du-Lac and even Wentworth, north-west of Lachute. But more significant is that almost invariably at a Chabad Sauveur event or activity, the Florida-born rabbi sees new Jewish faces.

According to a new book, many low-level tax inspectors in Germany’s Nazi-era finance ministry were oblivious to the Holocaust and dutifully tried to contact murdered Jews whose wealth was being plundered by the ministry’s top officials.

A prisoner’s jacket from Auschwitz, a food bowl from Treblinka, metal pins worn by the Jewish ghetto police, hundreds of postcards from concentration camps and a yellow patch  these are just some of the items exhibited by Holocaust surviving couple Yaakov and Irena Wodzislawski. The two were recently informed that they had won a lifetime achievement award on behalf of Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial museum and archive.

Jews clearly have a something attached to their Jew Gene that makes them lose their minds whenever they see a table of food. There’s any real mystery to how this began, and it has been carried on largely with assistance of FFBs. The stories of starvation that come from parents and grandparents from the alter heim will likely impact even another generation to come. By this time, though, the eating habits of the FFBs have forced the BTs to take up the same practice in order to preserve their own lives against the FFBs. The results are ugly.
