Meanwhile in ... Berlin, three new rabbis have made history
Berlin, three new rabbis have made history. The graduates of the Berlin Rabbinical Seminary have become the first rabbis ordained in the city since the Nazis began persecuting Jews in the 1930s. “The fact that Berlin – the place where deportations and extermination [were] planned and decided – is once again home to the largest Jewish community in Germany is ... an undeserved gift,” said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, who marked the occasion at an event at a local synagogue.
