6 Germans awarded for preserving Jewish historyBreaking News
The Obermayer German Jewish History Awards recognize non-Jewish Germans' efforts to keep alive their nation's Jewish cultural past.
Jews outside of Germany nominate the recipients each year. Others to receive awards Tuesday include a man who created a museum of Jewish history in a site formerly occupied by a synagogue and another who researched and documented dozens of Jewish cemeteries.

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, leader of Chabad-Lubavitch.
“The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: ‘Let us differentiate.’ Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have case of ‘let us differentiate’ between totally different species. This is what needs to be said about the body: the body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of (members) of all nations of the world… A non-Jew’s entire reality is only vanity. The entire creation (of a non-Jew) exists only for the sake of the Jews.”
