The monthly magazine WiLL (840 yen) which was released the other day is full of the papers to which all Japanese citizens should subscribe to the nearest bookstore right now. It is the same for people all over the world, so I convey this to the world now.

For the following articles I had many facts to know for the first time, but for the people of the world almost all are the facts to know for the first time.

I could not repress my tears for some reason why I read this genuine article, which is the opposite of childish and malicious fabricated articles such as the Asahi Shimbun.

The bond between the Japanese and the Jews

Marvin Tokayer Judaism Rabbi

Translation / Takayama Sanpei

Although both ethnic groups have been isolated in world history, there are many commonalities

Awarded the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Rays

On 6th February this year, I was awarded The Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Rays from New York Consul General of Japan, Ambassador Takahashi Reiichiro.

Ambassador Takahashi, in honor of the ceremony, about my achievement, "It deepened the understanding between Japan and the Jewish people", with a forehead, he introduced me that I have worked hard to introduce Japan to the world since I came to Japan in 1960s.

I made a short lecture on this day in front of the Jewish congregation that gathered at the ceremony.

"Though I am eighty years old this year, I will deeply appreciate it because I did not dream that I will be given such an honor from the Emperor and the Japanese government”, I said, "I would like to advocate Amen with you as Rabbi", the congregation responded "Amen".

"Amen" (May that be so) is also used by Christianity which is a sect of Judaism.

It was in 1967 that I went to Japan for the first time with my new wife.

In the previous year, suddenly I was asked to work as a Rabbi of a Japanese Jewish society from an advanced Rabbi, "Japan is a country that has allowed Jews to contribute to Japan and also helped the Jews there will be a big harvest for you.”

When I arrived in Japan, I was immediately told that 'I will meet some important person.' It is Takahito, Prince Mikasa of the emperor's younger brother.

His Highness was a researcher in the history of Hebrews and was also authority on the Bible.

When I first met Prince Mikasa Takahito, I asked, "What should I do?"

Then, my Highness said, "There are two things, one is to spread information and knowledge about Jews to Japanese people, and another is to spread the information and knowledge about Japan among Jews"

Since then, I have made friends with my Highness Prince Mikasa Takahito for nearly fifty years.

In praying for praying at the synagogue of Tokyo / Azabu (Jewish Great Church), my Highness led me several times in fluent Hebrew.

In my lecture, I touched upon the history of exchange between Japan and the Jewish people with rush.

This draft continues.
