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. He is deployed for a long tour (the address below is good for at least the next three months; he might be sent elsewhere later), and I think he could use […]

Hard-Liners Going SoftRe “Conference of Presidents Backs Sharon Plan” (news story, February 21):The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations is but one addition to a long list of once stalwart supporters of Israel’s national integrity to consent to the process of surrender so artfully labeled disengagement. 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 […]

Shabbos PrioritiesA person had slipped and fallen on the ice and now lay dangerously in the middle of the street, in the heart of Boro Park, on erev Shabbos. I was at a red light across the street, stuck behind another car. As I waited in anticipation for the light to change, I prayed that […]

Poignant EssayI found the Feb. 4 front-page essay by Nathan Lewin (“Say It Ain’t So…But It Was So”) incredibly moving.The American Jewish community in the 1940′s lacked three essential elements that we now take for granted:1. Political power, unity, and influence on a large scale in the national political process. 2. Communication among and to […]

Helping HandsThe 2004 annual Bais Yaakov convention was held in Detroit over the weekend of November 18-21 (5-8 Kislev). Our school, Bais Yaakov of Ramapo, arranged for other girls’ schools in the metropolitan area to accompany us by bus from New York to Detroit. After an uplifting and inspiring convention, the bus was headed back […]

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 […]

Whatever Happened To Modesty?I do not understand what is going on with klal Yisrael. Every few weeks we hear of a new tumult – about Indian hair, bugs in the water, kohanim being on certain roads where there are cemeteries, etc.Why don’t we hear any tumult about tznius? I walk the streets of Brooklyn every […]

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). There is a lyrical quality to her writing that one does not necessarily associate with works of Torah scholarship, but make no mistake – her articles […]

Our Shameful ‘Leaders’A wave of nausea overcame me as I read that ‘more than 70 prominent Jewish religious and communal leaders, with direct ties to leading organizations … have sent a letter to Secretary of State-designate and current National Security Adviser Rice effectively urging her to pressure Israel into concessions’ (‘The Pressure to Pressure,’ editorial, […]

Right GesturesThe Israeli government has decided to once again make ‘good will’ gestures by pulling the army back and releasing many terrorists. This has been done dozens of times in the past with disastrous results.Mr. Sharon, how about good will gestures to the Jewish people for a change? These can include: reasserting control over har […]

Misguided EndorsementYour endorsement of George W. Bush for a second term is misguided.Have you forgotten that from the beginning of 2001, the administration has taken a laissez faire position with regard to Israel? This exacerbated the tension of September 2000 when Sharon went to the wall and Arafat began his Intifada while the attention of […]

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 […]

Jewish Apathy (I)The vehement, sometimes violent, reaction Mr. Ishmael Khaldi experienced in response to his support for Israel (“Israeli Bedouin: American Jewish Apathy Shocks Me,” op-ed, Oct. 15) is, unfortunately, not limited to college campuses.Articles I had put up on my website, which did nothing more than support Israel, received an avalanche of condemnations and […]

When Sharon Was SharonSome words from Ariel Sharon’s 1995 eulogy for Ofrah Felix, who was murdered by terrorists:“I remember her as a little girl in the Shomron horizons, one of the followers of this beautiful and difficult land. How can we eulogize a 19 year old girl? A girl who is a sacrifice to concessions […]
