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 […]

Kudos To Albert Kahn    May I add briefly to a story well told by Rabbi Gershon Tannenbaum in his always fascinating My Machberes column? A lifetime of experience has taught me how hard it is to bring about change in yeshivas and day schools. This is all the more reason why I am full of […]

Unbalanced Media    Thank you to Nathan Lewin for the work he is doing to support and defend AgriProcessors (“Hatchet Job on Kosher Meat Company,” front-page essay, June 9). It is unfortunate that Jewish media are all too willing to jump on the bandwagon of kosher-bashing. The sentiments of the Forward have been echoed in other […]

Peace For Nothing Thank you for the wonderful job you are doing in keeping your readers informed about what’s really going on in the Middle East.Previous Israeli governments tried Land for Peace and got no peace. Each piece of land given to the Palestinian Arabs was used as a launching pad for further acts of […]

Unfair Depiction Steven Plaut’s description of France in his article “Le Bouffon Grandiose” (op-ed, May 5,) does not fit the facts.First, actor Dieudonn?‘s provocative remarks are his alone and he has been convicted and fined by a French court, on the basis of the Lellouche Act which is among the world’s toughest legislation on hate […]

Giving Due Credit The tax credit legislation applauded by TEACH NYS in its two-page ad in last week’s Jewish Press was enacted by the New York Legislature over Governor Pataki’s veto. It certainly is appropriate to thank the governor and others, including the Sephardic Community Foundation, who supported alternative legislation – especially since their initiative […]

Offensive ‘Joke’ As an avid reader of The Jewish Press, I was dismayed by the inclusion of a highly inappropriate joke in Arnold Fine’s “A Bi Gezunt” column last week. I use the word “joke” advisedly, because there was nothing the least bit funny about the joke’s subject matter, and it certainly did not belong […]

Rush To Judgment? I was disappointed by Dov Hikind’s op-ed article on the Boro Park disturbance (“Boro Park’s Night of Shame and Disgrace,” April 14). The assemblyman seems to assume the worst about our community and the best about the police. He wasn’t there during the incident, so how can he possibly know that the […]

Applauds EditorialI heartily applaud your April 7 editorial – “Warm and Fuzzy ‘Halacha’” – that called attention to the growing phenomenon of Jews, including some so-called Modern Orthodox Jews, seeking to change halacha to suit their own politically correct inclinations.I was not really surprised to learn that the Conservative movement is poised to legitimize homosexuality […]
