“Why the Jews” explores the deeper meaning and message behind humanity’s longest, strangest and most intense hatred: Anti-Semitism. It will completely alter your understanding of Jewish history, antisemitism, the Holocaust and the current conflict in Israel.
Rabbi Andrew Saffer went to Scopus and Monash, anticipating a career in Internet Law at the same commercial law firm as his many cousins. A six-week Jerusalem Fellowship summer trip to Israel changed that.
Six weeks at Aish Jerusalem turned into six years, and (while moonlighting as a graphic designer and events photographer — he shot Margaret Thatcher!), Andrew became a rabbi. He met his wife, Rachelle (also from Melbourne) in Jerusalem the very next day.
They married, moved back to Australia, and now share five spectacular children. Andrew spends his spare time listening to the same music your parents did and making excruciating Dad jokes.
