Lecturers in Ghetto Theresienstadt[edit]

Here is a list of all lecturers of the socalled University over the abyss in Ghetto Theresienstadt, among whom not only Regina Jonas, but also Leo Baeck and Viktor Frankl: http://sharat.co.il/lel/terezin/list.htm Austerlitz 88.72.4.143 13:36, 23 November 2006 (UTC) Here is some more information about the "University over the abyss": University Over The Abyss. There is a book about it, written by Elena Makarova, Sergei Makarov & Victor Kuperman. Austerlitz 88.72.4.143 13:46, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

  • The titles of two lectures held by Regina Jonas are mentioned here:
Jewish Studies
What Is Power Nowdays Jewish Religion, the Power Source for Our Ego Ethics and Religion
Terezin Studies
Between Saving the Body and Soul: The Responsibilities of Jews to Each Other in Terezin

sorry, rereading the source I have come to the conclusion that there have been THREE lectures on Jewish Studies mentioned by Ms. Makarova:
What Is Power Nowdays
Jewish Religion, the Power Source for Our Ego
Ethics and Religion

Different informations[edit]

  • Prof. Judith Baumel, a lecturer and researcher from Bar-Ilan University who has also researched gender aspects of the Holocaust, says Jonas' story has been publicized only during the past decade. In the archive of Terezin (Theresienstadt) House in Kibbutz Givat Haim Ihud, an institution that was established to commemorate the Jews who spent time in Theresienstadt, the file that bears her name comprises no more than two pages that were translated from a single document found in the ghetto archive in the Czech Republic. Nevertheless, these two pages contain impressive information: a list of dozens of lectures given by Jonas to the Jews of the ghetto during the two years she lived there. The subjects about which she spoke include "The Jewish woman in the Tanach and the Talmud," "Humor in the Talmud," and "The religious commandments in Theresienstadt."

Is this quotation a 'violation of copyright'? I don't think so. Austerlitz 88.72.4.143 22:02, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • After her deportation to the ghetto-camp of Theresienstadt on November 5, 1942, she continued working as a "Seelsorger," (caregiver of the soul) as a member of the staff of Victor Frankl, the well-known psychiatrist. She was assigned to greet newcomers and boost their spirits and adjust to the cruel realities of overcrowding and starvation. She also continued "preaching" and was a member of the "Freizeitgestaltung" which organized lectures, concerts and performances to distract people from the daily misery.A list of 23 lecture topics survived, including topics such as women in Talmud, Bible and Jewish history, Halakhah, prayer, Sabbath observances and Jewish obligations in the camps. She maintained her contact with Leo Baeck who supported her throughout her rabbinic activities in Berlin, although he did not publicly endorse her struggle for recognition as a full rabbi. (His correspondence shows, however, that he helped her behind the scenes).

Why I removed "Leader of Progressive Judaism"[edit]

Because this is not correct on two accounts: (1) During her lifetime, she did not associate herself with "progressive Judaism". In fact, she maintained a "Liberal" lifestyle (German Liberal Judaism at that period cannot be considered "Progressive", as progressive was a term maintained for the Reform community); In addition, she was not a leader in the sense that in the Liberal establishment itself denied her from being ordained for a very long period, and even after she had been ordained she received no regular pulpit at a Berlin synagogue. (2) After her death/murder by the Nazis, she was not remembered and honoured as "a leader of Progressive Judaism". In fact, I think that the common (mis)conception was that Sally Priesand was the first woman-rabbi in the world, and as you write yourself, it was not until several years ago (after the fall of the Wall) that Jonas became well known to those dealing with questions of ordination of women or Berlin Jewish history. --Karpada 14:26, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
