Listen to our CEO, Dan Mariaschin discuss the rise in anti-Semitism across the nation on Cheddar News:

โ€œWe need a concerted effort to speak out against this explosion of hatred against Jews," B'nai B'rith CEO Dan Mariaschin told cheddar news's Jill Wagner.

"We have to be proactive and counteract what we have seen in the last few days.โ€

Mariaschin joined Cheddar this morning to discuss the alarming rise in #antisemitism.

05/20/2021

What is anti-Semitism? Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination.

HISTORIC Bโ€™NAI Bโ€™RITH SINCE 1843 May is National Jewish History Month. Few things Jewish have operated as continuously in the United States as Bโ€™nai Bโ€™rith International. Each day this month, we report on milestone events that show Bโ€™nai Bโ€™rithโ€™s impact on American Jewish history. โ€ข IN 1863, Bโ€™nai Bโ€™rith Missouri Lodge President Henry Kuttner wrote President Abraham Lincoln to protest General Grantโ€™s Order to expel Jews from Peducah, Ky., and other places. Grant negatively referred to Jews โ€œas a class.โ€ Kuttner in his letter clarified that Jews were a class of โ€œloyal citizens.โ€ Kuttner requested that the order be annulled โ€œin the name of religious liberty, of justice and humanity.โ€ Lincoln rescinded the Order.

Amazon #1 Best Seller Political Thriller authored by a former Israeli Secret Service agent. Back in the 80โ€™s, in*******al romance was perceived as science fiction, international terrorism was a prelude to Al-Kaeada and ISIS, setting the stage for what has become the 21ST Centuryโ€™s violent nightmare; and the two Superpowers were engaged in the earlier version of the Cold War Tango. Based on true events this authentic political thriller provides a realistic rendition of the people and strategies deployed to combat global terrorism - and the politics that drive both. A Palestinian nationalist fighting for his cause. A female African American CIA Agent who falls for her Israeli MOSSAD partner. An ex-KGB Officer pulling strings behind a Middle Eastern terrorist organization. A Scottish Coast Guard Captain manipulated by a bunch of seemingly-amateur sea-faring women he saves from a storm. And an FBI Agent duped by the defector heโ€™s assigned to guard. These are but some of the characters youโ€™ll get to know when you read โ€œThe Killing Ritualsโ€, The seasonโ€™s bestselling surprise hit. Written by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, this suspenseful political thriller rocks you from one corner of the world to another while painting a realistic canvas of the war between Western democracies and the complex web of international terrorism. Dear friends, โ€œThe Killing Ritualsโ€ reached # 1 Amazon Best Seller status in the โ€œEspionage Thrillersโ€ category โ€“ as well as # 1 in the โ€œMystery, Thrillers & Suspenseโ€ and the โ€œAction & Adventureโ€ categories! It is available in Paperback and Kindle editions.
