Especially love those who others do not love.
As a descendent of Christian, Mennonite Germans, my father who grew up during WWII, he taught us the importance of standing up for the Jews regardless of what others were saying. He ingrained that in each of us children so much that three out of four of us have made trips to Israel to be a blessing, and I lived there for a while. We have all resolved to never be known as another German Christian who does harm to anyone Jewish. If I have offended any, it is purely out of ignorance which is one reason why I subscribe to aish: so that I can learn and thereby hopefully, not offend any Jews again. I appreciate my father's stand for what is right and hope to replicate his attitude. So far as it is in my ability to do so, I want to live at peace with others.

Sir/Ma'am, as an active-duty Jewish Chaplain (USA) I am always deeply moved by Christians who accept me and respect my traditions. I am grateful and honored to know such wonderful people who continue to support me and Jewish personnel. Thusly, may G-d bless you and your family. May He repay your kindness and acceptance of the Jewish people. May your father's memory be a blessing and an advocate for you in Heaven.
