Sam’s parents are Rabbi Lerner’s good friends. “it’s just a small way in which I can say ‘hey, I love you. I know what you are going through, well I don’t know what you are going through, but at least I can share some of my love in a small way,” says the rabbi.

Rabbi Lerner will be shaving his head on Tuesday in Chicago. If you would like to donate to his cause click here.

Nationalism and Unchecked Violence in Bulgaria

From DW

A rise in attacks against minorities has alarmed observers in Bulgaria. They say the violence is generated by nationalism, and that this aggression is rooted in the way Bulgaria reads its own history. DW takes a look.

Releasing a defendent on bail who faces murder charges can provoke protests in any country in the world. But this time, in Sofia, it’s a different story. Last week, a man was released who is not only indicted for murder, but is seen as a symbol for a movement of racially motivated violence that has gone essentially unpunished in Bulgaria for some time now.

Last year, Petko Elenkov, a security guard, shot and killed a Roma teenager, who had allegedly jumped over the wall of a refrigerator depot in Sofia in order to steal scrap metal. Elenkov, 50, denies any wrongdoing. A year on, the trial still hasn’t begun.

Elenkov was released on a 5000 leva (2500 euro) bail prompting Roma minority groups to demonstrate on the streets, calling for justice. Nationalist and pro-Nazi demonstrations ensued.

“Nationalism is on the rise in Bulgaria,” Daniela Mikhaylova, who heads the Equal Opportunities Initiative, an NGO based in Sofia’s Roma ghetto, told DW. In her opinion, this “new level of violence came as a result of a specific nationalist attitude that has gone unchecked for too long. When such violence happens and people in the media forums write things like, ‘Very good, they [Roma] got what they deserved,’ people start thinking that this reaction is something natural and even legitimate.”

Widespread discrimination

Roma, who number 400,000 in Bulgaria according to official statistics, are the largest and most frequently attacked ethnic group. But they are far from being the only target of hate speech and discrimination.

“The nationalists are targeting the Other,” said Solomon Bali, President of the Bulgarian branch of the Jewish Organization B’nai B’rith. “These include Muslims, Jews, the gay community, and foreign refugees.”

“And the attacks have become more frequent, more aggressive and more vocal in recent years,” Bali added. During the last decade, he recalls the profanation of the Kyustendil Jewish Cemetery, the burning of Burgas Synagogue and the “unlimited field for anti-Semitic propaganda and bigotry provided by the Internet and social media.”
