Is Paris Burning ?

דא גזרת אוריתא

The Maharam Mi Rottenberg wrote a  קינה for the burning of the Talmud in Paris in the year 1244. Ashkenazim say this   קינה on Tisha B'av

(שאלי שרופה באש -קינה מ"א) 

One of the powerful stanzas of the קינה.

         אוריד דמעות עדי יהיו כנחל ויגיעו לקברות שני אציליך משה   ואהרן בהר  ההר ואשאל היש תורה חדשה בכן נשרפו גליליך

"I will shed tears until they flow like a river and reach the graves of your two princes Moishe & Aaron who are resting on the mountain of Hor.

And I will ask them, Is there a Torah that is new and therefore your scrolls have been burnt"

    “…as a rule, religious Jews are more committed
    to Jewish survival. One recent example:

    During the height of the Palestinian terror,
    while secular Jewish organizations cancelled
    their youth trips to Israel, the Orthodox did not.

  2. Lord Ian Livingston of England said:

    “Whilst the Israeli Defense Forces are not
    perfect, the obsession of focusing on them
    despite being the most moral and professional
    army in the Middle East is very strange.”
