    We are all grateful for non-Jewish heroes who helped save Jews during the war. What halachic source would obligate us to do the same (risk our lives to save a non-Jewish persecuted minority)? Darkei Shalom? Is “lo maalin v’lo moridin” applicable?

    I had the opportunity to get to know Rabbi Marvin Hier in his previous role as rabbi in Vancouver, BC. He is an amazing talent who conceived this organization and built it into what it is today. At a time when other Jewish defense organizations are facing diminishing membership roles, he has built one that is strong. Yasher Koach.

    How small my worries and problems are, compared to what people had to face in such almost unimaginably terrible times as the 1930’s and 1940’s in Europe, and to a lesser but still significant degree in Haiti recently. Winston Churchill was probably the greatest gentile of our entire previous century; it would have been a special treat for me to meet his granddaughter. To use a bit of poetic license on a famous Jewish proverb, “In the place where Righteous Gentiles stand, many Jews cannot stand.” Thank you for this very moving and uplifting article.
