Nearly 2,500 worshipers listened as a rabbi read Scripture at the Crystal Cathedral on Sunday morning. "God has blessed us with salvation," read Rabbi Haim Asa, who wore a yarmulke and prayer shawl during a service complete with a gospel choir and bells. Indeed, salvation was what the service was all about. For Asa, however, the term has direct meaning.

Margaret Marketa Novak-Dattels writes movingly (letter, Oct. 23) of the murder of Jews in World War II by Nazi Germany and collaborators. True, Edith Stein was murdered because of her Jewish roots, not her Catholic conversion. But Novak-Dattels is wrong in her assertion that only "the people of Denmark . . . saved most of their Jewish citizens." One other country, Bulgaria, saved nearly every single one of its 50,000 Jewish citizens. The number of Jews in Bulgaria increased each year of the war. We must never forget.

Columbus went west to uncertainty. Around 60,000 Jews exiled that year by Ferdinand and Isabella came east to official welcome in lands of the Ottoman Empire.
