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. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Right GesturesThe Israeli government has decided to once again make ‘good will’ gestures by pulling the army back and releasing many terrorists.

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?

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 […]
