In fact, from the early 15th century on, the Ottomans actively encouraged Jewish immigration. Another Portuguese Marrano, Alvaro Mendes, was named Duke of Mytylene in return of his diplomatic services to the Sultan.Salamon ben Nathan Eskenazi arranged the first diplomatic ties with the British Empire. Indeed, Turkey could serve as a model to be emulated by any nation which finds refugees from any of the four corners of the world standing at its doors.In 1992, Turkish Jewry celebrated not only the anniversary of this gracious welcome, but also the remarkable spirit of tolerance and acceptance which has characterized the whole Jewish experience in Turkey.
When the Ottomans captured Bursa in 1326 and made it their capital, they found a Jewish community oppressed under Byzantine rule.
It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, and a day of judgement and coronation of God as king.

They are officially recognised as dhimmi,a protected non-Muslim community.,1326 The Ottoman capture Bursa and make in their capital.

Both cities have homes for the aged (Moshav Zekinim) and several welfare associations to assist the poor, the sick, the needy children and orphans.

Special thanks to Deborah Solomon of "Events 4 Non-Profits" for coordinating our event and working so hard on such a miserably hot day!

Now one newspaper survives: SALOM (Shalom), a fourteen to sixteen pages weekly in Turkish with one page in Judeo-Spanish. While the Jewish communities of Greece were wiped out almost completely by Hitler, the Turkish Jews remained secure.
This incredible love that we share became a labor of love for Zoe and I, as we began the process of opening our nonprofit rescue. Mr. Salahattin Ulkumen, Consul General at Rhodes in 1943-1944, was recognized by the Yad Vashem as a Righteous Gentile "Hassid Umot ha'Olam" in June 1990. The vast majority live in Istanbul, with a community of about 2.500 in Izmir and other smaller groups located in Adana, Ankara, Antakya, Bursa, Canakkale, Kirklareli etc.


We have made countless public appearances and even walked the “green carpet” at Zoe’s First Annual Dog Day Afternoon Event.
Our Passover megasite has tools, guides, insights, stories, inspiration—and just about everything you need to celebrate Passover (but bring your own wine). There are about 100 Karaites, an independent group who does not accept the authority of the Chief Rabbi. More than two years later, Zoe, my tireless volunteers and I have placed 150 small loving homeless doggies into happy “furever” homes. We treasure each and every one of their “happy endings” stories and how they share that incredible bond with their new doggy, just like Zoe and I.
We are blessed to have gotten to know the special little homeless doggies that have touched our lives more than we could ever have imagined. Please consider becoming a foster family if you are able or volunteering in so many other needed capacities. Please consider making a donation if you are able, to help us continue the work that Zoe has started. Zoe dreams, not of sugar plums, but of a Rescue Facility where she can save so many more of her homeless friends. After all, Zoe knows that dreams DO come true!Zoe and I wish you and your families the Happiest of Holidays! Ouch!!! My name is Frankie (previously Frenchi) and I am a precious little shih tzu mix that Zoe rescued from the Camarillo Shelter. I am so thankful that they not only saved my life, but they got me the surgery I desperately needed to make me better! Dr.Gregory McDonald, of Westlake Village Animal Hospital operated on me and gave me a new leash on life! Zoe asked if I would let people know that we can really use donations to cover the $1300 out of pocket expenses for my surgery.
Zoe's asks for a $200 donation when they adopt a doggy, regardless of the actual costs each doggy incurs.
Then we'd truly have a government run by the people, for the people!Well, if you make a tax-deductible donation before the end of 2012 to Zoe's Friends Animal Rescue, in effect, you ARE choosing how your tax dollars get spent. When you donate to a charitable organization, youre allowed to take that donation as a deduction off your income taxes.
Its not exactly a dollar-for-dollar exchange, but if you know youre going to owe some income taxes, its a great way to offset that. Personally, Id much rather give money to Zoe's Friends Animal Rescue than to the government!In order for this to affect your 2012 tax return, you HAVE to donate before the end of the year. More than two years later, Zoe, my tireless volunteers and I have placed 247 small loving homeless doggies into happy “furever” homes.Zoe also opened "Zoe's NO FLEAS Market", a fabulous Nonprofit Resale Boutique to benefit Zoe's Rescue and hopefully someday to help us establish a facility to help Many more little homeless doggies!We have made many friends. Please consider becoming a foster family if you are able or volunteering in so many other needed capacities at the Rescue as well as Zoe's NO FLEAS Market.
We love you!Wowee!Zoe's Rescue will be hosted by Anthropologie (mine and Zoe's favorite store!!!) in The Oaks Mall this coming Friday, September 21st from 1-5 pm. There will be beautiful doggies for adoption and they are having a donation drive for us too!
Please come meet Zoe's Friends and say hello!?? ?THANK YOU!!!? Zoe is so proud of Trey Spellman and his good friends who contacted Zoe and held a lemonade fundraiser to benefit Zoe's Friends Animal Rescue. They collected over $200 for Zoe's Friends as well as dog food, supplies and warm blankets! Trey began this adventure as a Mitzvah Project and now, we consider Trey and his friends "FAMILY"! Its about using local products, vendors, and incorporating local flavor to support local economies and cater to local tastes. Its about the creation of a whole new category of affordable dining thats converting eaters from yellow-cow quarter pounders to real meat, and the previously unaware to conscientious consumers.
