Since I do not speak/read Hebrew can you clarify what the 3 letters are after each of Haman's 10 sons and what this word could be translated to in English. I have been told that one translation was 'self' and then the teaching that coupled w/ the definitions of the names denoted things that must be dealt w/ spiritually in the life of the blvr.

purim 1946 article Bekerman, Vidal Mar 25, 2004

Mr. Rubin,

I was doing some research on this purim 1946 topic, and came across your article on the net and found it very interesting. i would like to correspond with you a little, as i have some issues with things that you have written, and would like to know some more about information you make claims about, but don't cite. but i will leave that to later. i would like to begin with taking issue with your assertion that there is nothing odd about hanging the nazis. it should be pointed out that Firing was (and still is) the standard form of military execution and was employed during and after World War II.

you appear to me to be an honest guy who is interested in pursuing the truth via reason. that is why i am pursuing a correspondence with you. i am not sure if you are an orhtodox Jew - i get the sense that you are no, but it is hard to tell. i also get the sense that you might admit if you are wrong on a point. you don't appear to me to be one who thinks his opinions are infallible, especially after he has already put them to writing.

i would be interested to hear a response from you as it appears to me that you might be willing to reconsider that point you make in the article.

you can reach me at vbekerman@yahoo.com

kind regards,
Vidal Bekerman

Would anyone happen to know how reliable the story is that Streicher did indeed shout "Purim Fest 1946!"? And if it is reliable, does anyone have any ideas why he would have said such a thing?
