Three days after the Olympic torch in the center of Turin was extinguished last week, marking the end of the XX Winter Olympics, another Olympic torch relay began in the streets of Italy. This torch is part of the Paralympics (the "parallel Olympics" for the physically challenged) that will be held in Turin and the nearby Alps March 10-19. The Paralympics, a 56-year-old sporting institution, at first glance are not a Jewish event; few of this year's participating athletes are known to be Jewish.
