Jewish Week Follow-Up

Last week in this space we took the New York Jewish Week to task over its giving front page placement to a rehashing of a year-old story about a concededly serious abuse problem at the Orthodox Union?s NCSY, and to a hazy report about a religious discrimination lawsuit filed against Yeshiva University by a Conservative Jewish woman. We saw this as fresh evidence of an Orthodox-bashing bent at The Jewish Week manifested by that tabloid?s artificial pumping up of negative pieces about two crown jewels of Orthodox Judaism.

In fact, with respect to the lawsuit, we have since learned that although it was provided the documentation, The Jewish Week failed to include in its story that a federal agency had dismissed the charges prior to the filing of the lawsuit!

In addition, in last week?s issue of The Jewish Week, a letter was published commenting on its NCSY article which turned up the volume even higher and went so far as to question the integrity of the OU?s universally accepted kashruth operation!

It is fair to wonder about what needs to be done to stop these kinds of spurious efforts against Orthodox organizations by a publication that depends on the Jewish public?s largesse as provided by the UJA/Federation. It is well known that absent that lifeline, The Jewish Week would be a bankrupt organization. The time has come for the UJA/Federation to rein in its dependent lest the UJA/Federation be adjudged as complicit in its outrageous enterprise. It is plainly out of control.
