  • Allusions

    • The book that was desecrated, the Chumash, is the bound version of the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament.

    • Rabbi Geller: When that neo-Nazi shot the Jewish schoolchildren in California ...

      He's probably referring to Buford Furrow, who had ties to the Aryan Nations and shot five people at a Jewish Community Center in Los Angeles in August 1999. Three of the victims were children. They all survived, but Furrow killed an Asian postal worker later that day. He pled guilty to avoid the death penalty and is serving life without parole.
