The Muslim Boycott Of The Mayor’s Breakfast

Posted on: January 4th, 2012

InDepthEditorial

It would appear that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's vocal support for the Ground Zero mosque – not only did he come out in favor of it, he labeled opponents as un-American – is coming back to haunt him. Some leaders of New York's Muslim community apparently believe he will bend over backward to accommodate their concerns, however wrongheaded.

For Jews, assimilating out is easy – but the real challenge is to assimilate in, to process 3,500 years of Jewish history, knowledge, and texts, and to somehow find a way to be modern, creative, and free yet still in line with Jewish tradition.

Dear American Jews

Posted on: December 6th, 2011

InDepthEditorial

I wish to apologize in the name of the State of Israel. We have heard that our ad campaign encouraging ex-pat Israelis to come home has offended many of you. That was certainly not the intent, and if it did offend, we are sorry.

Denying Israel’s Biblical And Historical Roots

Posted on: November 30th, 2011

InDepthEditorial

There appears to be a newly energized effort underway to delegitimize any identification of the modern state of Israel with biblical Israel. This sort of thing has been around for a while but it was usually engaged in by Arab nations and hardcore  critics of Israel. Thus it was disappointing, but not surprising, that in […]

Posted on: November 23rd, 2011

Posted on: November 17th, 2011

InDepthEditorial

We were encouraged by the statement of Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes that he will not agree to any plea bargains and will seek the maximum jail sentence of up to fifteen years in prison for anyone convicted in last week’s Flatbush firebombings. Several cars were destroyed and swastikas and anti-Jewish slurs were painted on nearby park benches in the early morning attack.
