Visit Trudel's Truth - a blog from the past. 1934-35

In 1933, my mother wrote, “There is no future for Jewish youth in Germany. I shall go to Palestine.” Instead she came to Chicago.
Here is her story in her own words.



Leonard Grossman and Cindy Barnard were married on January 6, 2008

Len's Lengthy List of Jewish Links



Welcome to the updated Lengthy List of Links. Because of the plethora of search engines and the explosion of Jewish sites we are no longer routinely accepting links for this page. Further, because of massive spamming the automated service for adding related links has been taken off line.

A few days before my 65th birthday in November, Cindy surprised me with a large dinner party at the Parthenon Restaurant in Chicago's Greek Town. The biggest surprise of the evening was a leather-bound volume containing many of the essays and other non-legal writings I have written over the years. Many of them she captured from my ModemJunkie articles and elsewhere on this website. But she also included well over a dozen other essays and some other materials.The entire book is online under the name she gave it Extraordinary Words.



Festival Candle Sticks The Seder Plate with symbolic foods. Elijah's Cup from 19th Century Germany.
In April 2007, Cindy Barnard and Len Grossman combined millennia of Jewish tradition with decades of their own family traditions in a joyous Passover Seder which brought together old and new friends and relatives from both of their families for an evening of study, song, laughter, learning and wonderful food.




Index



Note: The sections below are not in the same sequence as the index but you can return to the top easily. The distribution of links into various categories is somewhat arbitrary. If you can't find what you are looking for where you expect it, please look around. (For example, where would you look for the "Latke - Hamentash Debate?") Also, please let me know what you think of this new color scheme.

Broken Links

From time to time I will try to weed broken links from other sections of these pages. I am collecting these links on a special page of Broken Links. If you have information on where these sites have moved or if they are gone forever let me know.

If you find any I have missed please send me a note. I'll try to catch up.

I regret that I can no longer accept requests for additional links for this page. Further, the automated service for adding related links has been taken off line because of excessive spamming.
