So I saw this in the NY Times and thought it was just the coolest piece of news.
Three Rabbis were ordained in Germany today. Check out the article. It's the first time since the holocaust. And there was even a Muslim community leader in attendance at the ordination. The article also reports that the population of Jews in Germany is growing. Only 30,000 existed when Germany first reunified. Now there are approximately 100,000. That's pretty cool.
Now everyone can enjoy the pleasures of matzo ball soup, a good brisket, and kvetching in Yiddish.
