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. I enjoy the political commentary, even when I don’t agree with it, and I appreciate the opportunity to learn about Jewish history and tradition.     I would like to wish the people at The Jewish Press […]

Free Yom Tov Seating    Once again Kehilas Mevakshai Hashem of Midwood, Brooklyn, is proud to offer free seats for the Yomim Noraim as a public service to the community.    Anyone in walking distance of our shul, whether adult or mature (non-noisy) child, is welcome to daven in our well-lit, air-conditioned, roomy, ground level bais haknesses.    […]

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. When I recently submitted a piece on a Halachic Organ Donor event written by someone who’d attended, Ms. Kupfer made sure it would be included in your paper, just as she did with an article preceding the event.     […]

World’s Anger    Where was the anger of the world when innocent civilians were killed and hurt in Israel’s northern towns? Where was the world’s anger when Gush Katif, Sderot and Netivot had missiles and Katyushas raining down on them – in a so-called time of peace?    Where was the world’s anger when Israeli citizens were […]

Who Are We?    Churning emotions, stirred up by the events unfolding in our Holy Land, ran the gamut from admiration for the brave Israeli armed forces to trepidation for their safety – until I read “From Chupa to Kever: A Soldier’s Journey” by Judy Lash Balint (op-ed, July 28), a heart-wrenching account of the ultimate […]

Thanks, Fox News    As I sit here in Jerusalem writing, a fierce battle rages in Lebanon as our dear sons fight for the life and safety of the Jewish people in their homeland.    Because Israel doesn’t broadcast news all day, I sometimes turn to the foreign networks. As I sat and watched Fox News reporters […]

Bush’s Stance     President Bush’s strong support for Israel’s efforts to defend itself against the Hizbullah terrorists is crucial. Given this, you may want to let him know how much you appreciate his support. For information on how to contact the White House by snail mail, phone, fax or e-mail go to http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/.     To e-mail the […]

Potatoes    In “Survivor: A Meditation on Remembering the Shoah” (front-page essay, July 7), David Mandel, challenging us to view ourselves as bnei haShoah (children of the Shoah), writes: “The image I want to leave with readers is that of a potato. A common, everyday potato.”    So many Jews survived on potatoes or just potato peels. […]

Humans Or Beasts?    Is this nation-in-waiting the world calls Palestine populated by humans or two-legged beasts? They abduct children off the street, as was the case with Eliyahu Asheri, who was summarily murdered. Then a senior citizen is abducted and brought over to the Palestinian side of the border.    Israel entered Gaza to free a […]
