Severing Our RootsJews of all political persuasions joyously celebrate Tu b’Shvat with beautiful fruits grown on trees planted and nurtured by the residents/settlers of Eretz Yisrael.As every schoolchild knows, if a tree or a nation is severed from its rootsit will inevitably wither and die. Nevertheless, Mr. Olmert and his cohorts have embraced policies that […]

Not Convinced By Plaut I always enjoy Steven Plaut’s articles in The Jewish Press and until last week (“Israel’s Plague of Conspiracism,” front-page essay) always found myself in complete agreement with him. I do not know Mr. Chamish and almost always dismiss his claims; in addition, I am not one who sees a conspiracy around […]

Editor’s Note: The first few words of the second sentence in Ray Kestenbaum’s letter in last week’s issue should have read: “Over the years he [Sharon] developed the skills of a visionary.” We regret the error. Hateful HeadlineThe New York Daily News carried a short piece on Monday, Jan. 16, about the temporary resignation of Ohio […]

Lessons From MisfitsPat Robertson declares that Ariel Sharon’s massive stroke was the result of divine wrath for dividing the Holy Land. The ADL’s Abe Foxman tells Robertson that his views are un-Christian. There are a couple of lessons to learn from these two misfits.The first is that Foxman makes a better Christian than Pat Robertson, […]

Note To ReadersWhen we published Rabbi Moshe Faskowitz’s open letter of resignation from the Rabbinical Council of America in our issue of Dec. 23, we were unaware that he is a cousin of Rabbi Mordecai Tendler’s wife. While it has no bearing on the particulars of the Tendler-RCA controversy, or on the questions raised by […]

Spielberg’s Selective EquivalencyIt is clear that Steven Spielberg’s latest movie, “Munich,” attempts to portray the Muslim killers of the unsuspecting Israeli athletes as just simple family men, no different from the Israelis they murdered at the Munich Olympics.We all should ask ourselves, given that we cannot ask it of Spielberg or his ultra-leftist screenwriter, Tony […]

Kahane’s Views Not `Abnormal’Elliot Resnick (“Kahane’s Ideas, 15 years and 1,300 Deaths Later,” op-ed, Dec. 9) writes that “Kahane felt abnormal times required an abnormal response.” I highly doubt that Rabbi Kahane would have agreed with this presumptuous notion. His response to the demographic crisis in Israel could not be termed “abnormal” in the least. […]

U.S. Jews’ PrioritiesHillel Halkin’s May 13 op-ed (“The Bush Conundrum”) was the best defense of President Bush I’ve read anywhere. The only problem is that Mr. Halkin assumes that your typical liberal American Jew has Israel at the center of his or her priorities, and nothing could be less true.Ask a sampling of Jewish women […]

Another Great EssayThe May 6 front-page essay by Joseph Hoffman, “Monument to Life,” was an exquisite reading experience. It was as if Mr. Hoffman took his readers on a guided tour of the new museum at Yad Vashem, complete with historical references, personal asides, and a trained artistic sense. Please convey to him my profoundest […]

Rabbi Porush’s CourageReader Joseph Weidenfeld is highly unfair, and way off base, for insulting Rabbi Menachem Porush (Letters, April 29). Weidenfeld claims Rabbi Porush has “chutzpah” for criticizing the girush (disengagement) from Gaza and Shomron when his own party, Agudath Israel, supported this policy and saved the Sharon government from collapse.Such reasoning is patently ridiculous. […]

Inspired By Rabbi WaldmanI was touched beyond words by the self-sacrifice and idealism exhibited by Rabbi Eliezer Waldman in moving his family and his yeshiva to SaNur (Jewish Press, April 22). Many of us talk the talk when it comes to defending the integrity of Eretz Yisrael, but Rabbi Waldman walks the walk. Thanks to […]

Helping HandsIt’s nice to know there are still some caring people in this world, people who aren’t afraid to get involved but are willing to jump in to help others.Last Thursday evening I had an unfortunate incident outside a retail establishment on 39th Street in Boro Park. I was on the ground, badly injured and […]

Baseball FanI’ve come to admire the depth of knowledge that Jason Maoz regularly displays in his Media Monitor column, but I had no idea he could write so eloquently and knowledgeably on baseball as well (“The Vanishing Jewish Baseball Player,” front-page essay, April 8).You obviously timed the article’s appearance to coincide with the start last […]

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.

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 […]
