Wiesel states in the story “The Watch,” “In retrospect, I tell myself that probably I simply wanted to leave behind me, underneath the silent soil, a reflection of my presence. Or that somehow I wanted to transform my watch, into an instrument of delayed vengeance…” (224). Another piece of evidence that I found is “I heard distinctly, but as though coming from far away, the tick-tock of the watch I had just buried in accordance with Jewish custom. It was after all, the very first gift that a Jewish child had once been given for his very first celebration.” (224). The third piece of evidence is “I place the watch back into its box, close the cover, and my first gift once more takes refuge deep inside the hole.
The Last Supper is the final meal that Jesus Christ has with his Disciples before his crucifixion. The first significance of the Last Supper is when Jesus Christ announces in the supper that one of twelve of his disciples will betray him before sunrise. The painting shows the story of the scene after Jesus Christ announces the betrayal of one of his disciples. “One of you will betray me” (Bible, by Mark 14:18) the second significance of the Last supper is that Jesus Christ taught his followers the symbol that he is remembered for the sacrifices of his blood and body for mankind. "And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, 'This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me '" (Bible, by Luke 22:19).
According to the rulers of Pistoia, any old imported cloth was to be burned and corpses were not permitted to enter within the city (Doc 2). Given that they were the leaders of that city, they might have been influenced through recent experiences. Also, according to Visconti, people who recently encountered a dead body must stay isolated for 10 days (Doc 3). Given that
Mordecai is given control of Haman’s house and the king’s signet ring(which he had recovered from Haman). The King retracts Haman’s degree as per Esther’s request and authorizes the Jews to protect themselves if necessary. On the day intended for the massacre, the Jews gather together and destroy their enemies, which is eventually celebrated as the holiday Purim. The canonical book of Esther that is present in the Hebrew bible today stands out among other scripture in the cannon due to its noticeably more secular tone. In the text, God is neither mentioned nor addressed in prayer, yet the prosperity of Judaism over her enemies undoubtedly elevates Esther in standing with other significant figures of the Old Testament.
Thane Rosenbaum, in his “Should Neo-Nazis Be Allowed Free Speech?” essay, used the Supreme courts justifying the right of a church group opposing gays serving in the military to picket the funeral of a dead marine with signs that read, “God Hates Fags” as well as neo-Nazis marching in a holocaust survivors’ town as an opportunity to oppose on justifying hate speeches with offensive intentions. Even though it was a strong topic, by missing an ethos appeal and stressing pathos appeal, Rosenbaum failed to make an effective and convincing argument. Rosenbaum did not share that his parents survived the holocaust, and that he is heavily involved in opposing the Nazi regime. He is a law professor in the U.S., and he was also visiting professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in Israel, where he has been a frequent speaker, including at the annual Yom HaShoah Lecture hosted jointly by the American Society for Yad Vashem and Cardozo 's Program in Holocaust & Human Rights Studies on “Remember How the Law Went Horribly Wrong”; the 60th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials on "A Reappraisal and Their Legacy"; and as the Uri & Caroline Bauer Distinguished Lecturer on Rosenbaum 's book, “The Myth of Moral Justice." Although he has credibility as a writer of the essay, he did not mention that he is professor heavily involved in the issue.
Hale comes in and asks John why he's so absent on Sabbath Day. He later asks John to recite the ten commandments where he forgets one, thou shall not commit adultery.

Rabbi Shlomo Amar, Rishon L 'Tzion and Chief Rabbi of Yerushalayim related to the suicide epidemic plaguing Israel lately. His remarks followed the suicide of Brigadier General Efraim Bracha, OB"M. "One who takes his life forfeits his portion in the World to Come, " quoted Rabbi Amar. He emphasized that he is not making a personal reference to Bracha, ob"m. In an interview with Motti Lavi on the Kol B 'Rama radio station, Rabbi Amar said: "In principle this is very serious; we don 't know what this Jew was undergoing - may G-d have mercy. However - the principle is that one who takes his life loses his portion in the World to Come. This is a very serious matter: it is one of the most grave prohibitions.
March 20th, 1993 is when the Holocaust began and when the world saw Jewish men and women move to ghettos and concentration camps around the world. The Jews were taken from their homes, jobs and schools because of the religion they embraced and the culture they represented. From a young age, they were segregated from the rest of the world and discriminated against by a pretentious leader. During these times Nazis would give them false hope and allow them to bring small relics and heirlooms to feel safe. However, the Jews had no clue about the terrific life that was soon to come as they would suffer starvation, molestation, and experimentation.
People stop what they are doing when the 2 minute sirens come on to take time to remember, ““This annual day of commemoration is about the past, but also the future; it is about Jews but also all others who find themselves scapegoated and vilified solely because of who they are,” Guterres said” (“UN Marks Holocaust Memorial Day will Call For Vigilance Against Hatred”). People still believe that the whole world is still learning lessons from the holocaust. We are learning that you should never follow people out of fear and that you should never hide who you are. There wasn’t always documentation of what happened to people in concentration camps but, the ones we do know was have saved there names, “holocaust museums has collected over 4,700,000 names of people in the holocaust” (“Mercury News”). It is sad to think that over 17 million people died but we can only say for certain 4,700,000 names of them.
In the Wine of Astonishment, the villagers in Bonasse were banned from practicing their own religion because of the laws of the Crown Colony system. The laws restricted the villagers of Bonasse’s freedom of religion, which furthermore means restricting people’s faith and their way of life. Bee’s wife, Eva Dorcas described the sermons that her husband presents when the law restricts Bee from practicing their religion’s traditional ways: “I would listen to Bee preach the sermon without no fire and I would join in the singing of the hymns that was every Sunday getting shorter” (Lovelace Pg 52). The bland
In 66 BC, the Jews assaulted Masada and took over it from Roman rule. The Romans were trying to make the Jews give sacrifices to their gods like the Greeks did. However, the current leader of the time, Eleazar, the son of Ananias the high priest urged the Jews to not to give any Roman sacrifices, as they did in Document #2, and the Jews obliged. The Romans did not like this, and this was the so-called beginning of the war with the Roman. This reaction of Eleazar was a great success because no foreign sacrifices were given afterwards.
9/11 was a hard day for everyone, even for a small Arab kindergartener like myself at the time. The prejudice every single Arab-American had to deal with after this moment is something no one thinks about. The fact that my family has to be ‘randomly’ checked at an airport because of our last names is to no interest to you. How my female friend who wears a hijab got called ‘Mohammed’ at a what-a-burger. How my brother who is traveling from Lebanon from my cousin’s wedding has to shave his beard and make sure that he ‘doesn’t look like a terrorist’.

The United States Supreme Court favored Schempp and declared this Bible reading to be unconstitutional. It all started when Edward Schempp, a resident of Abington, Pennsylvania filed a suit against the Abington School District to prohibit the enforcement of requiring children to hear and read portions of the Bible as part of their education. Schempp’s children attended the school and felt it was not right and against their religious freedoms. He and his family are also Unitarians. The case was lost at the Federal district court level, which then with hopes of Schempp dropping it, the school with parental consent aloud kids to opt out of it, but Schempp was still not pleased.
