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. 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 […]

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 […]
