Hurray For Hagee (I)    I had tears in my eyes as I read Pastor John Hagee’s speech to AIPAC (front-page essay, March 30). Why is it that Bible-believing Christians seem to shine with such faith and certainty while even Orthodox rabbis (forget about Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist) tend to speak in muted tones, full of […]

Note to Readers: A letter appeared in last week’s issue purporting to be from a “Rabbi Rick Probstein.” We have since learned that the letter was not from someone named Rick Probstein. Though we make every effort to verify the identity of readers who submit letters for publication, the system obviously failed in this instance. […]

Dog In The Fight (I)    Reader Yaakov Fromer writes (letters, March 16): “Whether Turkey did or did not commit genocide nearly a hundred years ago is no concern of ours – we have no dog in that fight.”     I would respond that as Jews – a people who have suffered tremendously at the brutal […]

‘Provocation’    So Bishop Mixa from Germany expressed his concern over Palestinians facing “ghettoization with almost racist characteristics” (front-page news story, March 9). When asked to confirm that statement, Mixa said, “I wanted to say that building the wall between Israel and the Palestinians amounts to provocation from the point of view of the Palestinian population.”    […]

Seidenfeld Yahrzeit    March 1, Taanis Esther, marks the second yahrzeit for the four Seidenfeld children of Teaneck, New Jersey, who perished in a fire. Philyss Seidenfeld, the mother of the children, has requested that individuals, communities, and shuls learn on that day in memory of the children and as an aliyah for their neshomos. The […]

About That Blood-Libel Book    In light of the false and distorted interpretation given to my recently published book, I have requested the Italian publishing house El Molino to immediately stop further distribution of the book [news story, page 3] in order that I may re-edit those passages which comprised the basis of the distortions and […]

Influence Of The Press    It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since the passing of Rabbi Sholom Klass, zt”l, thanks to whom a good friend of mine got started on the road to Torah.     Back in 1964, this friend was serving time in a California penitentiary for armed robbery. With so many empty […]

Outstanding Community   Re “Memphis, Tennessee: The Jerusalem of the South” (Contemporary Jewish Kehilla, Jan. 26):    My family and I moved to Memphis after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina. We came with literally two days’ worth of clothing after evacuating New Orleans. The community here welcomed us, fed, and treated us like long-lost family. Our children […]

Dreamer Vs. Realist    It is clear that Eli Chomsky (“For Israeli-Syrian Talks,” op-ed, Jan. 26) lives in America and Steven Plaut (“Israel Should Offer Syria Nothing,” op-ed, Jan. 26) in Israel. Like so many in America, Mr. Chomsky fails to understand the Arab mentality, and therefore he dreams. Professor Plaut may also dream, but living […]

We also appreciate all the tefilos and Tehillim that were […]

Uncomfortable Truth   The Palestinians under Yasir Arafat supported Iraq in the first Gulf War. Recently declassified documents record that they were complicit in the killing of American diplomats. They publicly rejoiced in the 9/11 atrocities. They worked hand in glove with the murderer Saddam Hussein against American interests in the Middle East. Indeed, the Palestinians […]

Truman’s Anti-Israel Policies    Jason Maoz is correct that Harry Truman was a most “ambiguous” friend, and not just because of his anti-Semitic diatribes (“Harry Truman Without Fanfare,” front-page essay, Dec. 29).    Just before the ’48 war ended, the Israelis went on the offensive and captured a large chunk of the Sinai Peninsula. The Truman administration […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
