Jewish leader appeals to church for protection

Jews in the Eastern European country of Moldova erected a menorah at the capital’s main square. Local Christian vigilantes quickly tore it down, at which point the Jews started protesting and a local Judenrat leader even asked the church to condemn the vandals.

Now, the Moldovans are right. They are a Christian country, they dislike Jews, and they do not want to see a Jewish ritual candelabra in their main square. Just as we want to remove Al Aqsa, they are justified in removing a menorah.

Assimilated Jews want to become a part of Christian society and sport menorahs in public, which they have no right to do. A menorah in the Diaspora is an absurdity: it signifies the triumph of ultra-Orthodox Judaism, and has no place in a Christian country with only 20,000 Jews.

But if Moldovan Jews want a public menorah, they must be prepared to defend it like the Maccabees did, rather than appealing to the church.

The capital church and Jewish leader will hardly find a compromise. It’s a sad truth that because of the peculiarities of their character Jews are not welcome anywhere.That’s why the capital church and Jewish leader had this conflict.
