Pope A Lamed-Vavnik?I bear no ill will toward the late Pope John Paul II, but I found myself wincing at the statements put out after his death by our Jewish leaders and organizations, each of whom sought to outdo the others in praising the pontiff in language they seldom if ever use upon the passing […]

Summers StormI appreciate The Jewish Press’s publication of Ed Koch’s op-ed column on the academic lynching of Harvard President Lawrence Summers. The outcry against Summers for raising an issue for thought and debate is very sad. Once again we are witnessing a horrible double standard from the media, the academic Left and supposed women’s rights […]

Money Better SpentAs people prepare to fulfill the mitzvah of mishloach manot on Purim, may I remind them that the mitzvah involves sending a gift of two (2) different food items to one (1) friend. I do not believe the mitzvah is to send extravagant $300 baskets to everyone living within a three-mile-radius of one’s […]

Readers Urged To Reach Out To Jewish Serviceman I recently exchanged a few e-mails with an observant Jewish serviceman in Iraq, 1st Lt. Chaim Spilman.

Three years ago the executive vice chairman […]

Sharon’s PledgesI am distraught by the pledge made by Prime Minister Sharon that Jerusalem is non-negotiable. Those of us who have been following the prime minister’s career and statements over the past few years realize that his saying that Jerusalem is non-negotiable is cause for great concern about the future status of Jerusalem. Given his […]

Reckless TalkThe growing incitement against Israeli government officials in response to the disengagement policy must be condemned by all people regardless of their stance regarding that policy. The atmosphere being created is one that should be abhorrent to those who respect the guiding principles of democracy, the very tenets of freedom which we all cherish.As […]

Political power, unity, and influence on a large scale in the national political process. 2. Communication among and to […]

Galut Mentality“In every generation one is obligated to see himself as if he has exited Egypt.” (Passover Haggadah)When the Jews left Egypt and were trapped between the Egyptian army and the sea, there were many who advocated going back to Egypt and slavery. Understandable, but nevertheless the epitome of galut mentality. Had they prevailed, we […]

Lyrical EssayWe’ve come to expect moving and profound insights from Rachel Weiss’s pre-holiday front-page essays, and Ms. Weiss certainly didn’t disappoint us with “Forever Burning, Forever Yearning” (Dec. 10).

Best Of Times, Worst Of TimesThis November, American Jews have an extra reason for thanksgiving as we happily participate in numerous celebratory events to mark the 350th anniversary of Jewish settlement in the United States – a venerable and wonderful milestone. Simultaneously, Israelis despondently disengage from their nine-times-older history. Despite Arab attacks, Israel finalizes its […]
