Reader comment on: Occupy Simchat Torah

Recall that there was a jewish autonomous region on the east coast of the USSR near the amur river. Stalin established it but few migrated there. (note that the region still exists today, but with fewer than 2% of the population being jewish). It appears that Stalin felt that to be a nation one had to have land, and the USSR in the 1930s had a surplus of vacant land. Note that the goal was to produce a jewish society without religion (if that is possible) Yiddish was to be the language.
