“I benefited from many Jewish guides and guideposts on my road to Roman Catholicism.”
Among the unbelievers.
And the priestly blessing.
Their dreams were unrealistic, but their evaluation of Communism wasn’t.
“Can it be that ours is the century in which the Jews perish?”
Only the Red Army tried to prevent pogroms.
No noble cause.
A refuge for conversos, Holocaust refugees, and anti-Semitic terrorists.
From Ḥasidism to Marxism.
From Lithuania to Brooklyn to Tel Aviv.
The Jewish itch to believe in universal substitutes for Judaism.
It looked a lot like anti-Semitism.
