BERLIN (JTA) -- German-Jewish author Rafael Seligmann has launched a Jewish quarterly magazine.
Jewish Voice From Germany, a private initiative started last week, is aiming to convince English-speaking Jews around the world that there is a future for Jewish life in Germany.
Seligmann, 64, a native of Israel who came to Germany with his parents in 1957, told JTA that it pains him that many Jews outside Germany associate his country only with the Holocaust.
The fact is, we are a small but a very fast-growing Jewish community in Germany, Seligmann said in a telephone interview. We have a vivid community -- it is a shadow of what it was but it blossoms again.

My wife, who is German-American, (actually, Pennsylvannia Dutch, same thing) didn’t understand why her Jewish friends (of which she has a few) don’t like Germany. She’s not at all “German”, except her maiden name, she’s very all-American, so her Jewish friends probably don’t suspect her roots. She complained to me once about a Jewish friend, whom she was surprised to learn, didn’t like Germans.
Jews may dislike Germany, but it seems that they do not dislike Mercedes Benz, Porsche, BMW and Audi.
That, and they willingy support our raging anti-Semite president? Go figure.
How about Jewish - Ebonics magazine?
