Unite Behind The WinnerDuring a Thursday morning interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Boston Red Sox pitching star Curt Schilling looked into the camera and said, “Tell everybody to vote, and vote Bush next week.” Many were excited to hear this beloved pitcher endorse President Bush. Well, the people have spoken. Our democratic electoral process […]

True ContritionI recently received three 100-dollar bills in the mail from ‘Ploni Almoni.’ Enclosed was a note from the sender, who confessed that many years ago he accidentally dented my car. He asked to be pardoned for that act.I vaguely remembered the incident, but most impressive to me was that this gentleman did real teshuvah. […]

Dej? VuThe story of the abandonment of the Jews during the Holocaust, retold in Marvin Kalb’s marvelous front-page essay (“Misreporting the Holocaust,” Oct. 22), is of course a sad one. Kalb reminds us how Franklin Roosevelt, an aristocratic blue-blood, and The New York Times with its weak Jewish owners, cared little about the Jews.It should […]

Selective And DeceptiveI thought your readers would be interested in the following letter that I sent to The New York Times.Ed KochNew York, NYTo the Editor:In today’s [Sept. 21] article reporting the decapitation by terrorists in Iraq of American civilian Eugene Armstrong, The Times reporter wrote:“In the video of the beheading, an insurgent wearing a […]

Rather Lame ApologyIt’s ironic that Dan Rather’s mea culpa concerning the forged memos has come amidst the aseret yemei teshuva. But when one considers Mr. Rather’s admission of guilt, one crucial component was strikingly absent – no apology was given to President Bush.Halacha is unequivocal: anyone who wishes to repent after committing a sin against […]

Tentacles Of DestructionThe tentacles of death and destruction are seen in print on the front page every day. The world is now getting a taste of the intifada.Death and destruction are being caused by the spread of Islamism worldwide. Do we nip it in the bud, Bush style, or cut and run and appease the […]

Federation Follies It was nice, in an ironic way, to read Arlene Peck’s op-ed column “Not One More Dime For Federation,” Aug. 20).Just three days before I received the issue of The Jewish Press containing Ms. Peck’s article, I got a call from the New Mexico Federation asking for a donation. I told the woman […]

Special Thanks To HatzolahWe wish to thank all of the members of Hatzolah who helped rescue my son and his two passengers from his overturned car on the Palisades Parkway on August 17. Not only did the Hatzolah team help with the rescue and give immediate medical attention, they helped gather the luggage, seforim and […]

Beware The GreensThe article on Ralph Nader (“Ralph Nader’s Curious New Allies,” front page essay, Aug. 13) comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with the Green Party, from which Nader now pretends to distance himself. The Green platform is Judeophobic and pro-Palestinian and Muslim. It calls for the withdrawal of Jews from liberated territory […]

Lost And Hopefully FoundAt our annual Tisha b’Av prayer service for Jewish communities in danger on July 27 outside the UN, someone – perhaps a faithful Jewish Press reader – left behind a black hardcover Rosenfeld edition of kinot and Tisha b’Av tefilot. There’s a Hebrew name inscribed inside the cover. Interested parties should please […]

Liberal LogicDoesn’t the liberal view of the world seem so alien? A genocidal madman like Saddam Hussein is beaten and captured, yet liberals are calling for George Bush’s head. Huh? Islamic terrorists blow up busloads of Jewish children and liberals vilify the Israelis and sympathize with the Arabs. This obsession with moral equivalence is so […]

‘This Is Our Land’We stood together, well over 100,000 strong, bearing witness to our commitment to our land. Many of us held hands. Many of us spent the time reciting Tehillim. Many of us sang. At the Kotel, the sounds of the chazozrot, the trumpets, resounded.For two hours we stood at our chosen points along […]

Return To Cafe HillelAfter sitting shiva for my brother, Dr. David Applebaum, my family and I returned twice to the very spot where he and his daughter were blown up by a suicide bomber in Cafe Hillel. With tears in our eyes we lit two yahrzeit candles.Within three months we again visited Cafe Hillel, this […]

True DepravityLast week’s bombings of Israeli armored personnel carriers in Gaza are to be expected during times of war. After the first attack, however, Palestinians paraded through the streets with body parts of the dead Israeli soldiers. Later, a video was broadcast throughout the Arab world displaying the decapitated head of one of the dead […]

Mario’s MushThis retired firefighter has a question for Mario Cuomo, who, as the Media Monitor reported, stated that the U.S. should tell Israel, “Up until now it was just you and the Palestinians killing one another – now you are killing us. Now there are people out there who are taking Israel as the provocation […]

Unforgettable ImpressionI’ve read with interest the ongoing multi-part biographical sketch of the late Rabbi Meir Yehuda Getz, the Rabbi of the Kotel, in the “Profile” column.I shall never forget the first time I saw him.

Precedent-Setting PresidentLast week President George W. Bush made more explicit than ever before his belief that the war Israel faces against Arab Islamic terrorism is the same as the war the United States faces. His actual words were:“The violence we are seeing in Iraq is familiar. The terrorist who takes hostages or plants a roadside […]

Eye On KerryI appreciate the careful scrutiny of John Kerry that one finds in your editorials and among many of your columnists. This is one shifty, arrogant politician, and I fear for America’s future – and, by extension, Israel’s – should he be elected president. Kerry’s wife is another potential problem – the groups to […]

Google ProtestUpon reading in The Jewish Press (news story, March 19) that an anti-Semitic website is the first result one gets when typing in the word “jew” on Google, the Internet’s number one search engine, I contacted Google and basically got a run-around.
