complete with turret and
clock tower. The area south of
Coolidge Corner is a virtual
Jewish world — though with
a definite New England
stamp. The delis, bakeries
and butcher shops are hous-
ed in neat, Victorian
buildings. Patrons in these
places display typical New
England restraint.
Inside Kupel's Bake and
Bagel Shop, for example, the
lines are long, but the
customers wait quietly and
patiently to choose from the
variety of bagels offered.
They won't go hungry on
Harvard Street. Up the street,
there are Baigels by Bager-
man, Wulf's Fish Market, and
a sign announcing that
Ruth's Kitchen is coming
soon, featuring New England
glatt-kosher cuisine.

all by Jewish artists, both
American and Israeli.
Across the street, the Israel
Book Shop sells an extensive
range of Yiddish and Hebrew
books, plus Jewish
newspapers and ritual objects.
Posters in the window an-
nounce the Jewish Theater of
New England, the "Dial a
Jewish Story" program of
Chabad House of Boston, and
the Ulpan Institute of
Brookline.
Down the street, Rubin's
Kosher Delicatessan offers
the chance to enjoy another
activity, eating ethnic food.
The oldest operating kosher
restaurant in Boston is a
Brookline landmark. Inside,
customers enjoy their corned
beef sandwiches and strudel
as they watch the lively street
life outside. These patrons in-
clude observant Jews wearing
yarmulkes, college students,
tweedy Bostonians — an
eclectic mix that typifies the
diversity of modern
Brookline, the new England
town with a distinctive
Jewish identity.

Strasbourg Displays
Rebirth Of Judaism

RUTH ROVNER

Special to The Jewish News

n Avenue de la Paix
in Strasbourg, the
synagogue is an im-
pressive sight.
Its striking bronze menorah
and intricate Star of David
design gleam in the sunshine.
Surrounded by large, leafy
trees and set in a spacious
park, the synagogue
dominates the corner, its
Jewish symbols proud and
prominent.
More than a dramatic sight,
however, this synagogue
represents the rebirth of a
once proud Jewish communi-
ty almost entirely destroyed
by the Nazis.
For the Jewish traveler to
Strasbourg, the major city in
the province of Alsace, the
Synagogue de la Paix should
be the first stop. It is im-
pressive evidence of how Jews
in a European war-torn city
have rebuilt their communi-
ty with energy and hope.
Strasbourg, which is six
miles from the German
border, suffered devastating
losses during World War II.
By 1940, it was occupied by
the Nazis. Jews were
deported. And everything
Jewish was destroyed.
The Nazis destroyed the
beautiful old synagogue on
Quai Kleber, which had been
standing since 1898. They

desecrated many small shuls,
burned Jewish books,
destroyed Jewish art, ran-
sacked Jewish archives and
discarded precious ritual
objects.
By 1945, virtually nothing
remained of a Jewish com-
munity that had begun in the
Middle Ages and become a
center of Jewish culture for
all France.
Yet today, Strasbourg is
called the Jerusalem of
France. It has numerous
yeshivot, Talmud Torahs and
Akiva, a Jewish day school,
with 700 students enrolled.
The University of Strasbourg
has a chair in modern
Hebrew, and many chief rab-
bis of France since the war
have come from Strasbourg.
The main synagogue is a
symbol of this rebirth. It is
the pride of the 12,500 Jews
of Strasbourg and an example
of unusual cooperation bet-
ween the Jewish community
and secular government. Con-
secrated in 1958, it was fund-
ed by the French government,
the City Council, the Con-
ference on Jewish Material
Claims against Germany and
numerous local donors.
"When France was
liberated, many French peo-
ple felt some guilt become
some — but not most — local
citizens had cooperated with
the Nazis," explains Dr. Yves
