I was proud to receive France’s Legion of Honor Award presented by President Chirac at the Elysee Palace in Paris, in the presence of the French Jewish community. Yes, there are serious issues confronting Jews in France, but French Jewry and we are working with government officials to bring about positive change. Attacking France as The Jewish Press does may make you feel good, but is not helpful to French Jews as they attempt to resolve problems.

Not So Shameful
Re “Shame of the Yankees”: There were at least eight Jewish generals in the Union Army compared to none in the Confederate. Those Jewish generals were not political appointments but came up through the ranks. Likewise, in 1862 Congress authorized the creation of a Jewish military chaplaincy, the first for any non-Christian denomination.
