Dazzling Proof: A Torah Scroll Parchment Served as the Wrapping for the Nazi Officer’s Certificate
More than 60 years ago, a Nazi officer entered a synagogue in Lithuania, and nonchalantly ripped a piece from an antique Torah scroll, to protect the officer certificate he was carrying. Later, he shared the secret with his son, a senior politician in Germany, who decided to return the holy parchment. Moti Dotan, head of the Lower Galilee Council, was the messenger for the good deed
Denial of the Holocaust
The holocaust has had a ripple effect for over 70 years since it took place, and these ripples reflect themselves in various forms of behavior, most of which are somewhat irrational. But the holocaust itself is the greatest irrationality, and therefore, we should not expect the response to it to be logical or philosophical.

Rabbi, I know this sounds dumb, but occasionally I have doubts because I hear what atheists have to say. Can you explain to me what is the Jewish view of evolution? I heard certain rabbis say that it is all nonsense while others say that evolution could have happened. For instance, after the Tower of Babel was destroyed, some people were punished and became monkeys. So what is the truth?

How can the Torah be true? There are some contradictions!
The Torah is full of contradictions, for instance, the flood. There isn’t enough water in the world to make a deluge in half the world. How did the animals come to Noah? How did they have food to eat? How could the Ark hold such heavy cargo? How did they have room for the millions of animal species? And many other questions like these. And do not say it was a miracle; I'm not interested in all sorts of crooked answers. I just want to know the Torah’s simple meaning. If you can not answer, then the Torah is refuted. Thank you.

If people were punished for their sins in the Holocaust, then are the Nazis guiltless?
During a lecture I watched, the question was addressed to Rabbi Yosef Ben-Porat: “Where was G-d during the Holocaust?” From watching the video it seems that his view is that the Jewish people were punished during these days of wrath and experienced the horrors of the Holocaust due to their assimilating and deviating from the straight path. The Nazis carried out the punishment and were merely tools implementing the Creator’s punishment. If this is the case, then we have to accept heaven’s decrees, and how can we complain against the Nazis? This sounds absurd and incomprehensible, but there is no other logical conclusion from his well explained and organized lecture. Nevertheless, we say may the Germans and Nazis’ names and memory be blotted out. Isn’t this remark implying defiance of G-d’s Will? His words are incomprehensible. His excellent and coherent explanation and his conclusion seem to completely contradict each other.
