Mordechai Anielewicz - Leader of the Jewish Combat Organization in the Warsaw Ghetto. Led the Jewish resistance in the Ghetto. Murdered on the 8th of May, 1943. Hashomer Hatzair member.
A face of Jewish resistance, to serve as a reminder to those who would say Jews didn’t ‘resist enough’ in the Shoah, of the Jews who fought in the darkest hour of Jewish history and gave their blood so that our people could live.

As it turns out, Raisman, who is Jewish, chose the traditional Jewish song “Hava Nagila” to accompany her Olympic floor routine and help her win the gold.
“I like how the crowd can clap to it,” Raisman told Haaretz.com, which reports on Jewish news.
According to the website, she also said she is proud to be using the Jewish song “because there aren’t too many Jewish elites out there.”
“It’s a huge honor to be the first Jewish gold medalist of the 2012 (London) Games,” Raisman told NationalReview.com.
Haaretz reports that the teenager from Needham, Mass., won the Pearl D. Mazor Outstanding Female Jewish High School Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award, which is given out by the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in New York.
However, even more important to Raisman than the Jewish connotations the song has, says Haaretz, is how she says it inspires audience participation.

Bess Myerson was the first Jewish woman to become Miss America in 1945. Though she was told to use a pseudonym that ‘sounded less Jewish’, she refused. A lot of sponsors and events refused to deal with her.

Being a Jew to me means being a part of something greater. I’m tired of people questioning my jewishness, or the way I fit into judaism. I am a Jew.  I think if people have a problem with my jewishness its between them and G*d.

Cette “fille du soleil" comme la décrit la journaliste de Marie-Claire, n’a que 20 ans et pourtant, elle semble avoir toujours illuminé de sa beauté. Pour mieux la connaître, il faut remonter du côté de l’Egypte d’où vient sa mère, Piera, “une vraie mamma juive”, dit Nora. Son père, lui, est un Autrichien catholique mesuré, mais ausi “anti-macho baba cool”. Les amoureux se rencontrent à Bali, alors que la mère de Nora est venue se remarier avec son premier mari ! Ce couple plein de sagesse ensoleillée donne naissance à Nora puis à Léa, “la soeur aimée, si aimée que les deux filles se sont fait tatouer leur prénom respectif sur l’avant-bras.”


Nora Arnezeder se met à nu, aux sens propre et figuré, et parle de ses drôles d’envies! (purepeople.com)






La jeune femme s’est ainsi exprimée sur de nombreux sujets. Concernant la fameuse « affaire Galliano », elle explique : « C’est honteux, je ne trouve pas d’autre mot. Je ne sais si c’est le succès qui rend fou ou s’il avait trop bu ou s’il est profondément raciste. Je suis juive et cela me concerne particulièrement »



» Nora Arnezeder, mince sauf dans sa tête De l’actu, du people et de la mode au menu…





(I can’t find any English articles discussing her Jewishness, sorry! But what the text above amounts to is stating that her mother is an Egyptian Jew, and that as a Jew she was very concerned about John Galliano’s anti-Semitic comments.)
