In a climate in Germany in which Jews are harassed on the streets and warned not to wear religious symbols in public, many young Jews are immigrating to Israel.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently announced that the threat to the nation’s Jewish community is so great, stationing police officers at every Jewish building or institution in Germany is a must.
“Unfortunately there is to this day not a single synagogue, not a single day care center for Jewish children, not a single school for Jewish children that does not need to be guarded by German policemen,” Merkel said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
With far-right extremists on one side and Islamic anti-Semites on the other, is there any future for the Jewish community in Germany, or is aliyah to the Jewish homeland the only appropriate response to the rising the threat?
