Twitch Stream Announcement for 22 March 

there were righteous people who resisted in various ways, like by giving people places to be hide. they should be celebrated. they are. this is how some of my own family survived the Nazi occupation of Budapest.

but, the crimes these people fought back against have to be recognized in the context of existing sentiment against Jews, against queers, Roma and Sinti, disabled people, Black people, etc..

it wasn't simply a German problem imposed by the German occupiers

a yiddish word i recently learned was ימח־שמוניק, yemakh-shmoynik, for a villain, scoundrel, terrible person, etc.

from "yemakh shmoy", "may his name be obliterated," which is said especially after the names of historic enemies of the Jewish people like Haman from the Book of Esther

Hannah Ritchie, Our World in Data: *Less meat is nearly always better than sustainable meat, to reduce your carbon footprint*

"I have shown previously that what we choose to eat has the largest impact, making a bigger difference than how far our food has traveled, or how much packaging it’s wrapped in. This is because only a small fraction comes from transport and packaging and most of our food emissions come from processes on the farm, or from land use change.

Regardless of whether you compare the footprint of foods in terms of their weight (e.g. one kilogram of cheese versus one kilogram of peas); protein content ; or calories, the overall conclusion is the same: plant-based foods tend to have a lower carbon footprint than meat and dairy. In many cases a much smaller footprint.

As an example: producing 100 grams of protein from peas emits just 0.4 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2eq). To get the same amount of protein from beef, emissions would be nearly 90 times higher, at 35 kgCO2eq. …"

**Opinion: A disgrace for Germany**

"A state premier has been elected to office with direct support from the far-right nationalist AfD. The utter breach of taboo shows just how weak opposition to the rise of the right in Germany really is, says Ines Pohl."

Every month I intend to highlight a different Jewish organization working in the grassroots and on the margins of institutional Judaism in the Diaspora, showing that another world is possible.

Last month was Open Hillel; this month is the Jews of Color Torah Academy. JOCTA empowers Jewish POC, marginalized by majority-white Jewish institutions, to celebrate marginalized customs and traditions, uncover lost histories, and (re)build culture.

people who refer to anything as a "Versailles" in the sense of a humiliating and unneeded surrender negotiated behind closed doors raise a tremendous red flag to me

this is literal Nazi propaganda. the Treaty of Versailles was signed as Germany was surrounded and its armies defeated everywhere else, to avoid a senseless war inside Germany proper. the pervasive myth that it was a "betrayal" of "the German people" is literally what brought about the Holocaust.

Christianity: God comes down to Earth and says "this is what I really meant", forming the basis of a new religion

Islam: God sends an angel to Mohammed to say "this is what I really meant", forming the basis of a new religion

Rabbinic Judaism: A voice from Heaven says, "This is what I really meant." The rabbis say, "The Torah is not in heaven; it says so right in Devarim 30:12. Butt out."
