Insensitive Tabloid    Kudos for calling out the New York Post on its habit of topping stories involving Jews with headlines that are at best insensitive and at worst borderline anti-Semitic (editorial, Dec. 15). But you left out one of the worst examples – the “NYPD JEW” headline the paper splashed across its front page last […]

Ben-Gurion No Model    Assemblyman Dov Hikind’s column on Ehud Olmert in last week’s Jewish Press quoted David Ben-Gurion saying “We chose a Jewish state without the entire land of Israel.” What was the Jewish character of the state chosen by Ben-Gurion? Ben-Gurion’s “Jewish” state took Yemenite children from their parents, cut off their payos, and […]

Information Sought    I am looking for Arthur Kurtz, whose photograph of my late husband, Rabbi Meir Kahane, zt”l, appeared in a Brooklyn College newspaper in 1974. I’d appreciate hearing from him, or anyone knowing his whereabouts, to request permission to use the photo in a book about Rabbi Kahane. I may be contacted at mrslkahan@yahoo.com. Libby […]

Misplaced Criticism?    To suggest that criticism of France “is now off limits at the ADL” because I was given an award by President Jacques Chirac is mean-spirited and an outrageous statement from a Jewish newspaper that knows well how outspoken ADL and I have been about France, when warranted (editorial, “Foxman Hearts Chirac,” Dec.1).    On […]

No Citizenship For Ruth?     Sephardi Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar seems to advocate throwing out the baby with the bath water. Jews are seriously praying for Mashiach ben David, yet Rabbi Amar (front page news story, Nov. 24) would reject giving ancestor Ruth the Convert rights of automatic citizenship. Ira FriedmanBrooklyn, NY  Sderot Double Standard    On Nov 22, […]

Kahane’s Virtues    It’s quite true, as Rabbi Stephen Polter states (Letters, Nov. 17), that more people are acknowledging Rabbi Meir Kahane’s prescience, wisdom and foresight. While Rabbi Polter correctly lauds Rabbi Kahane’s virtues and designates him one of our greatest Jewish leaders, I must take issue with the advice he would have proffered to Rabbi […]

Florida Voters   Re “Jews Key In South Florida Vote” (news story, Nov. 3):   As a longtime resident of Boca Raton, a converted Jewish umbilical-cord Democrat, and chair of Jewish Outreach for the Boca Raton Republican Club, I constantly challenge the political intelligence of my fellow Jews here in South Florida.   I can tell you that […]

Recalling The Voice   Kudos to Jason Maoz for his wonderful Oct. 27 front-page essay “A Voice to Make Men Weep,” about Chazzan Moshe Koussevitzky, a”h. The article brought back memories going back more than 50 years when I and a group of friends would attend Temple Beth El in Boro Park on Shabbos Mevorchim, staying […]

Offensive Parade   It’s gratifying to hear that the planned gay parade in Israel will meet with massive resistance from Jews, Muslims and Christians (news story, Oct. 27).    It took a lot of nerve, though, for gay activist Noa Satat to chastise the opposition to the parade with words from, of all places, the Torah: Love […]

Muslims And Double Standards    When an obscure Danish newspaper published a caricature mocking Muhammed, the Muslim world erupted in violent protest and effigies of anything Danish were burned.    When Pope Benedict cited a critique of jihadism from the 14th century, Muslim fundamentalists called for his head and churches across the Middle East were torched.    Last […]

Helping Jews    We now know that some of the money raised by the UJC (Federation) to aid Israel in the wake of the recent war with Hizbullah has actually gone to help Arabs. Although the estimates as to percentage vary widely, there seems to be no doubt that huge amounts of money were given to […]

Three-State Solution   In his fine column of Sept. 15, Louis Rene Beres noted that Israel was not the aggressor in 1967 and as such was justified in using anticipatory self-defense. That point should be clarified: Israel used preemptive self-defense only against Egypt. Both Syria and Jordan initiated hostilities with attacks against Israel.    Indeed, Israel had […]

Beautify The Shrines    This is the time of year when we, the Jewish people, visit our holy places in Israel. Having just visited Kever Rachel, I am appalled by what has happened to it. It has become a prison. Its foreboding look and entrance are beyond belief. I know this has happened because the Muslim […]

Neturei Karta Loves Ahmadinejad    The president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has repeatedly called for the total destruction of Israel. Such a catastrophe would mean the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Jews. That position, of course, has qualified Ahmadinejad for Neturei Karta’s hero of the month award. Past recipients include such great statesmen and friends […]

New Year Greeting    I am a Muslim living in the Detroit area who faithfully visits your Jewish Press website.

Dangerous Times   Are we blind to what’s happening? Are we so preoccupied that we don’t realize the seriousness of how Iran’s quest for a nuclear bomb is progressing? As a young man I could never understand why the Western powers did not stop Hitler when he was weaker in the 1930′s. Now I feel like […]

New Leadership Needed     If one were previously inclined to believe that Israel’s leadership would finally muster the will to fight the Islamofascists chomping at its borders, the recent war with Hizbullah/Iran should dispel us of this illusion (Steven Plaut, “The War Israel Chose To Lose,” op-ed, Aug. 25).      Instead of arming the IDF with […]

He Must Go    The time is now for every Jew who cares about Israel and the Jewish people to sound off and register a demand for the removal of Ehud Olmert from office.     I can’t remember when I have ever wished so hard to be proven wrong. When Sharon was stricken and relapsed into a […]

Saving Lives    Cheryl Kupfer is not only a great columnist, she has a heart of gold.
