In the second hearing in April, the president of Columbia bent over backw ..read more

NOA FAY Age: 23 Barnard College – Columbia University  I was raised mostly in Brookline, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. My father’s parents are both Ashkenazi, second and third generation on both sides. They came from Russia, Poland and Austria—a very generic Ashkenazi situation. My mother is a French Jew, born in Paris, as was her mother. My grandmother’s family came from Eastern Europe escaping the pogroms in the early-to-mid 1800s, and then they set up a life in Paris. I still have family in France but we lost relatives on my mother’s side in the Holocaust. Many of those who s ..read more

Jack Ruby: The Many Faces of Oswald’s Assasin
Moment Magazine
by Laurence I. Barrett

After he fired a fatal bullet into Lee Harvey Oswald’s belly and police knocked him to the floor, the shooter asserted, as if startled by the rough handling: “You all know me! I’m Jack Ruby!
