Alison O'Riordan takes a fascinating journey through Dublin's Jewish quarter, both past and present
Not an earth-shattering read nor a damascan moment of enlightenment. But interesting.
I still have reservations and an unexplainable anti-Jewish bias. Unjustifiable, perhaps, but ingrained. It is reminiscent of similar sentiments of my youth towards the Quaker community which was quite significant in Waterford. But while the latter have changed, my sentiments that is, the former are more deep-rooted.
Perhaps its time to find out a bit more our Jewish community.
The state of Israel, however, is a different matter and I have no reservations about my abhorrance of it.
