UPJ President Roger Mendelson shared his My Good News column in the UPJ's Weekly News & Drash dated 13/14 September 2019. The Jewish Community of Japan morphed out of the old Jewish Community Centre. It was originally a social centre for the fledgling Jewish community from the early ‘50s. Most of the founders were from Harbin and Shanghai in China, and sought a new home after the communists took over there.

If more Jews had read Hitler’s Mein Kampf in the 1930s, they would have had clearer warning about the enemy they faced.
With this principle in mind, I recently read TO HEAL THE WORLD.HOW THE JEWISH LEFT CORRUPTS JUDAISM AND ENDANGERS ISRAEL. The author is Jonathan Neumann, who is a Cambridge educated British journalist.
