Walking Hearts

Wordpress Blogs on Refugees - أحد, 2014/08/17 - 07:46

Making electronic music is an interesting process. It’s like hitting the kitchen to fix yourself a delicious meal.

You select your ingredients, only using those that are fresh and discard the sounds that have been sitting idly for too long. You chop and dice an element that perhaps would flavour your song to strongly. Yet you want to keep a bass flavour nice and smooth to ground the palette.

We cook with emotion, we create songs with feeling. An essence is savoured and in Walking Hearts I wanted to capture an optimistic journey. I achieved this yet in the end, I could not help but think about those that journey, right now as I type, as you read, in search of a new home. A new land. Stability. Safety.

I have my studio, you have my new song, we have our kitchens. Some are in possession of none. They are…. walking hearts.

Enjoy this new downtempo instrumental song, please share and download as you wish xx

Where is Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress, when Ukrainian Jews need him most?

Wordpress Blogs on Refugees - أحد, 2014/08/17 - 04:56

Though he is a Russian citizen and close Kremlin associate, Moshe Kantor- the president of the European Jewish Congress(EJC)- has deep ties within the Ukraine. He was a non-governmental advisor to Viktor Yushchenko from April 2005 to 2007, while Yushchenko was president of Ukraine. It is believed that he was highly influential within the Orange Revolution, accounting for Yushchenko’s election.

The public face of Kantor and Yushchenko’s alliance targeted anti-Semitism and holocaust education in a bid to win over Ukraine’s Jewish populace. Their publicized meetings, of which there were few, painted Yushchenko as a partner to the Jewish people- openly condemning anti-Semitism.

This relationship ultimately did little good for the Jewish community, though at the time Kantor played a role in the EJC and president of the Russian Jewish Congress. The holocaust commemoration events Kantor offered to put on in Ukraine fell through, such as the international forum Let My People Live.

Now, as Ukrainian Jews face the reality of life as refugees, and Kantor heads the EJC, I am stunned to see the lack of action on his part. For all his past “support” of Ukrainian Jews, now that they are faced with a crisis, he is impotent and ineffectual.

The United Nations stated that more than 117,000 people are internally displaced within Ukraine. As for the Jewish community, Times of Israel is reporting that “in the past weeks several hundred Jews from pro-Russian rebel Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine have fled their war-torn cities with little other than the clothing on their backs.” They have gone to live in a makeshift refugee camp within a Chabad facility for children in western Ukraine’s Zhitomir.”

(Source: Times of Israel)

The scene is bleak. Many of these Jew’s have lost everything. In the cities occupied by separatists there is often no power supply, running water, or phone reception. Missile bombardment is constant, with many buildings destroyed.

Rabbi Shalom Gopin’s wife Hani tells a poignant story “Her parents were Holocaust survivors… she never thought that two generations later, her children would be fleeing in the middle of the night. Just like their grandparents, they fled with the clothes on their backs and don’t know if they’ll ever go back to their former homes.”

(Source: JTA)

Who would have thought, even a few years ago, that Jews would be in this position Again? Their businesses commandeered- gone forever. Leaving in mass. Aliyah from Donetsk and Luhansk to Israel up 400% in a matter of months.

This is the reality of Jews in East Ukraine. Now more than ever is the time that they need the European Jewish Congress and Moshe Kantor to step in. This absence on their part is duly noted; when needed most, in a community where Kantor has exerted influence in the past, the EJC is not present. Why has he abandoned Ukraine’s Jews? Could it have anything to do with his Kremlin connection?
