Defending Britta Stein
By Ronald H. Balson
Video footage has captured 92-year-old Britta spray-painting the words “Liar, Traitor, Nazi Collaborator, and Betrayer” on the outside wall of 95-year-old Ole Henryks’s, Melancholy Dane, a popular Chicago restaurant. Ole, who is soon to receive entry into the Danish-American Association’s Hall of Fame, vehemently denies the accusations, claims he is a hero who saved Jews, and insists on his day in court in order to clear his name. Britta is up for the battle. Defending Britta Stein interweaves two narratives: Britta’s serialized account of her early life in Denmark and the present-day court case.
Ole Henryks tries to rewrite history as Britta Stein relates her moving account to try to right it. We will examine the themes of good and evil, truth and lies, courage and betrayal, and punishment and revenge. Defending Britta Stein is a book worth reading.
The Tiferet People Players Presents
Tiferet Israel Seeks New Rabbi
Tiferet Israel has begun the search for a new Rabbi. The successful candidate will provide the Congregation with leadership to re-energize and grow our synagogue. We are looking for a self-starter who can “think outside-of-the-box” and aspires to lead a dynamic shul in partnership with our Officers, Board of Directors, and members. Perhaps more importantly, we are looking for a Rabbi with a commitment to Orthodoxy who has a love not only of Torah but of all Jews no matter their level of observance. We need a Rabbi who can understand the needs of our current membership, one who can draw in and educate members of the Dallas community who have not grown-up Orthodox but are seeking inspiration, spirituality, and Torah along with those who have always lived an Orthodox life.
Morning Minyan is currently being held on Sundays at 8:00 AM and on Tuesday and Friday Mornings at 7:00 AM, at Tiferet Israel. Please observe social distancing and health safety rules posted throughout the building. Learn more here…
