We note with much pride that two prominent members of the Orthodox Jewish community have been nominated by the Democratic Party Judicial Convention to the New York State Supreme Court. They will be running in the November 6 election.
Judge Howard Ruditzky, a respected jurist who has been a stalwart for Jewish causes in Brooklyn in his private life, will be running in Brooklyn. And Judge Martin Ritholtz, who is an accomplished Talmudic scholar as well as a distinguished member of the civil court bench will be running in Queens.
In the coming weeks leading up to November 6, we will be having a lot more to say about Judges Ruditzky and Ritholtz. Suffice it to say that we are proud that two from amongst us who have so distinguished themselves, are poised to assume even greater responsibility and potential for public service.

Last year the Obama administration sought to minimize civilian deaths from drone strikes by generally requiring that missile attacks be limited to instances where Americans were directly threatened and there was a “near certainty” that no civilians would be killed.
Toward the end of Operation Protective Edge this past summer, the president was unusually vocal about Israel’s so-called disproportionate use of force and alleged lack of compliance with international humanitarian law.
