This coming fall the Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada will ibe releasing a new book about the history of Jewish physicians in Manitoba.
It will be a very comprehensive look at Jewish physicians who can trace their origins to Manitoba and who practiced at least five years in the province.
I am confident that the book will confirm the notion that Manitoba produced some splendid Jewish doctors.

Alan Dershowitz: Why I will continue to defend clients like Jeffrey Epstein

NEW YORK (JTA) – If I had not defended Jeffrey Epstein and gotten him a favorable plea deal, it is unlikely that I would have been the subject of the recent hit piece in The New Yorker, not to mention be accused of sexual misconduct by two of Epstein’s alleged victims. Indeed, my first accuser told The New Yorker that she accused me because “Jeffrey got away with it, basically. And Dershowitz was one of the people who enabled that to happen.”
In other words, because I did my job well – getting my client the best result possible – I have now become a target of efforts to destroy my reputation and career.
