Police Intelligence Chief Is Honored by the ADL

by Sarah Garland – The New York Sun

The Anti-Defamation League yesterday honored the NYPD’s commissioner of Intelligence, David Cohen, as the first recipient of an award named after an Italian police chief who saved more than 3,500 lives during the Holocaust. The police chief of Fiurme, Giovanni Palatucci, forged documents and visas that allowed thousands of Jews to escape death in concentration camps during World War II. He was eventually caught and died in the Dachau concentration camp in 1944.

As he received the award, Mr. Cohen compared Fiurme to New York City, noting that Jews from throughout Central Europe had flocked to the Italian city seeking refuge, much like the millions of immigrants who come today.

What would have been a nice picture…

Can you imagine a picture of 40 Sukkah Mobiles, ranging in sizes from the standard pickup trucks and getting larger and larger to as big as the 18 wheeler flatbeds you’ve seen right here on CrownHeights.info, lined up together, perhaps on eastern Parkway, in front of 770 or at least on Kingston Avenue?

That would have been an awesome picture!

When asked what they thought about the idea at the office of Mitzvah Tank Org. the ones responsible for the Sukkah Mobiles, the response was “do you really think it is possible to get more than 15 Shluchim, approx. 25 groups of bochurim and several restaurants to all stop what they’re doing for a picture?”

My Favorite Museum

by Sara Miriam Gross – Jounior Mishpacha Magazine

Hello, my name is Batya and I live in Brooklyn. One day last year, on Chol HaMoed Succos, my bubby took me on the subway to a tall, shiny museum building. It looked very new. It wasn’t a quiet, serious museum about science, or one that has lots of paintings. It was a museum all about me — and you — and it was fun!
