Overview

Everything is The Lord's creation; which is good. Man often fails to recognize this because he imagines himself "larger" than he happens to be, and, consequently, fails to accept his shortcomings; he would rather imagine a mischievous, devious, controlling, maniacal creature out to do him harm; sometimes for misdeeds he is able to acknowledge, but has a tendency to believe the punishment is unfair, and other times he cannot fathom a reason behind the dreadful, nightmarish, things that happen, and conceives the cost to be wholly unjust, all the while unwilling to accept that the problem lies in him not developing his faculty of reason.

About the Author

Max Shindler
My father was born, August 7th, 1931, in Liverpool, and died, July 29th, 2014, in Toronto.
Max Shindler lived in Waterloo, Liverpool, until he was evacuated to Wales during the Second World War; it was here he first encountered anti-Semitism; for example, on many occasions he was given no other choice but to eat his meals in the outhouse on the farm where he lived.
Such traumatizing incidents left lifelong scars on his psyche. He was never able to disregard the humiliation he felt due to this abuse, or forget the fact that many of his relatives were executed in concentration camps, or died in boxcars before arriving to them.
He left his family home when he was seventeen to live in Israel, where he became a member of the Israeli Army. He later joined England's Royal Air Force, and was a member of a bomb disposal unit. He worked for Avon's advertising department in Northampton, and later worked with his wife as a Window Dresser.
He married Pearl Lomax in 1957 in Castletown, on the Isle of Man. A year later their daughter, Nicola, was born; three years later Simone was born; Nigel, his youngest child, was born in 1964; he was loyal, generous, and nurturing, toward each of his children, and grandchildren.
He had an immense appreciation for the arts; he wrote, designed illustrations, and formed Trinity Manifesto Productions with his son. Max played the classical guitar; did photography, and became fluent in several languages, including German, Hebrew and Yiddish. He loved opera, and classical music. He had a passion for learning, and read voraciously throughout his life.

Nigel Shindler
The author was given the name, Nigel, at birth, a very common name in Britain, and seven days later conforming to Jewish custom, a circumcision ceremony was performed and he was given both the Hebrew name Tovia and the Yiddish equivalent Tevia, both names imply the blessings and goodness that God bestows. In later years whilst living in Israel he adopted the Hebrew name Eitan, which implies stoicism and impetuousness.
All these terms, expressions, are a reflection of his nature. He has depth and complexity, but can display banality, depending on his mood, or the time of day.
