Let us mourn all the attacks on houses of worship, including the massacre at the mosque in Hebron on Purim 1994, when Brooklyn-born Israeli settler Baruch Goldstein slaughtered 29 Palestinians while they prayed.
This mass murderer is honored as a saint by some Israelis, and a book of 533 pages was published in praise of his homicidal deeds: Baruch Ha-Gever (“Baruch the Saint,” Jerusalem, 1995, Mikhael Ben-Horin, ed.).
Hoffman is a former reporter for the New York bureau of the Associated Press and the author of Judaism Discovered and Judaism’s Strange Gods
