IDC Herzliya Campus A Day on Campus

To mark IDC Herzliya’s 20th anniversary, we spent a day following Prof. Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president, and Jonathan Davis, VP for External Relations, around its delightful campus.



Letters To The Editor

Letters-logo

I strongly felt the reason for his doing so was because it is very difficult to look someone straight in the eyes while you are completely distorting what that person has said or done.

So I was more than pleased to read, the very next day, something in Dr. Dovid Lieberman’s Human Nature 101 column (Jewish Press, Oct. 5) that confirmed my observation.

He wrote as follows:

No, or little, direct eye contact is a classic sign of deception. A person who is lying to you MAY do everything to avoid making eye contact. Unconsciously, he feels you will be able to see through him – via his eyes. Feeling guilty, he doesn’t want to face you. Instead he will glance down or his eyes may dart from side to side. Conversely, when we tell the truth or we’re offended by a false accusation, we tend to give our full focus and have fixed concentration. We lock eyes with our accuser as if to say, “You’re not getting away until we get to the bottom of this.”

The latter two sentences describe Gov. Romney’s demeanor and body language. He was telling the truth.

Jews Uniting

As soon as I read the article “Na’anuim: Moving Together As One People” by Rabbi Yona Reiss (The Magazine, Oct. 5), I just had to write to you.

I am currently attending a new seminary program in New York called Ateres Naava that perfectly exemplifies this idea. AN welcomes girls from all points on the religious spectrum and every girl learns to put aside her differences and really experience what it means to be a part of the Jewish nation and come together as a whole to learn and grow.

We are all different, and each and every group of Jews has something special to contribute to the klal. How special it is to witness Jews of all ages and abilities coming together to fulfill the will of God.

May we merit to always see the good in every Jew and look out for one another so that we can continue to be a “light unto the nations.”

Thank you for a beautiful article with an everlasting message.

In a world where people question whether they should be engaged, we are a reminder that all Jews are responsible for one another.

Golden presents a compelling saga of poor but determined immigrants who fled pogroms and harsh conditions in their homelands for a better life in a land of opportunity.

It seems to us that while the Jewish entitlement to the land of Israel transcends the Holocaust, the Jewish experience during that tragic time is the most solid of foundations for these “national rights.”

Too many self-styled civil rights activists seemed determined to force, by their relentless pressure, an indictment regardless of what an investigation might turn up.

Unfortunately, at present, the rabbinate does not play a positive role in preventing abuse.
