Shaare Torah shows Holocaust documentary

GAITHERSBURG – More than 300 people gathered at Shaare Torah Congregation last Wednesday for a screening of “Blue Tattoo,” a documentary film chronicling the experiences of Dina Jacobson – mother of Connie Liss, the congregation’s executive board president – during and after the Holocaust. The title of the film is taken from a song by Ithaca, N.Y. folksinger Joe Crookston. After meeting Jacobson Crookston composed the song, which is written from Jacobson’s perspective as she explains the blue inmate number tattooed on her arm to her young daughter. The song plays throughout the documentary, which recounts Jacobson’s experiences at the Auschwitz concentration camp. The documentary also tells the story of Jacobson meeting her husband, a survivor of a different camp, after the war and their eventual settling in Elmira, N.Y., where Jacobson frequently spoke about her experiences.

Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...
