Nine Blind Mice, See How They Run

21 Sivan 5763 – June 20, 2003

Is Taxpayer Support For Religious Schools Constitutionally Required?

In its last term, the United States Supreme Court narrowly upheld the constitutionality of publicly financed tuition vouchers for parochial school education. In effect the court said that if a public authority decided to include parochial schools in a program of general application, theFirst Amendment's requirement of separation between church and state did not prohibit it.

The Times Is Still At It

In its May 14 and May 18 editions, The New York Times demonstrated that its pro-Arab/anti-Israel bias continues to drive its treatment of the Middle East.

Terror Still The Palestinian Weapon Of Choice

The brazenness of Abu Mazen is startling. He will not, he is widely reported to have said, doanything to stop Hamas and the other terrorist groups unless Israel accepts the "road map" - with its requirement of an immediate cessation of Israeli anti-terror activity in the West Bank and Gaza - as is and begins to implement its provisions.

Rav Tuvia Goldstein, zt”l

The Jewish Press joins Klal Yisroel in mourning the passing of Rav Tuvia Goldstein, zt"l, long one of the most senior and respected Torah personalities on the world scene and revered as the Z'kan (dean) HaRoshei Yeshivos in America.

Times Goes From Bad To Worse

18 Sivan 5763 – June 18, 2003
In the grand tradition of Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, Burns and Allen, Mondale and Ferraro and others too numerous to mention, we now have the Pinch and Howell show at The New York Times, formerly the nation's paper of record but now mere comedic grist for Letterman, Leno and a few hundred struggling comics performing at dives from Trenton to Tacoma.

Commitment By Example: A Very Special Bat Mitzvah Celebration

14 Sivan 5763 – June 13, 2003
Guests at the bat mitzvah were briefed on the project as they entered the reception area and were then encouraged to write letters during the course of the reception.

Mugged By The Jewish Thought Police

I wrote about how the self-haters disgusted me. And about the horror I felt at Jews such as Richard Dreyfuss,

UN Wants Dessert, But It Didn’t Eat Its Peas

Let us hope that we have learned our lesson once and for all.

Criminalizing Our Religious Beliefs

When Bob Jones University in Virginia discriminated against blacks for religious reasons, the Supreme Court ruled that the school had forfeited its tax exemption.

Left Still Wrong After All These Years: An Interview With Mona Charen

I never thought that our moral legitimacy arises from getting authority from the United Nations to begin with.

Stunning Departure

As Secretary of State Powell continues in efforts to promote the so-called Middle East "Road Map," the Bush administration's apparent departure from the firm, uncompromising anti-terror American resolve President Bush articulated on June 24th last year and re-enforced byOperation Iraqi Freedom, is nothing short of stunning.

Fifty-Five And Counting: Israel’s Uncertain Birthday

Israel celebrated its 55th birthday last week. The good news is that five years ago it did not look like it was going to make it to 55. The bad news is that 60 is still in doubt, 65 even more so.

Letters To The Editor

Beyond The PaleI resent the language used by columnist Emanuel Winston in last week's Jewish Press. However one feels about the so-called 'road map'...

Joe Lieberman: A Plug For Religious Accommodation

We were sharply critical of 2000 Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman over a variety of issues. And we expect that we will have a lot to say about him in the coming months as he pursues the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination. Hopefully, he will draw more positive comment from us this time around as he runs on his own and not as second banana.

The Jayson Blair Affair: A Perspective

It now appears that The Times is finally 'fessing up to the
most outrageous abuses by one of its reporters and is
conducting an investigation into the full scope of Jayson
Blair's misleading of its readers. From what is already known,
for a period of four years, Blair fabricated news stories. But
what is intriguing is that some higher-ups at The Times
apparently were aware of Blair's wrongdoing, but for reasons
not yet clear ? he was not discharged. Some are suggesting
that notions of "affirmative action" (Blair is African-
American), were in play in Blair's being hired and not let go.

The Jewish Week And Allegations Of Abuse

The Jewish Press' continuing coverage, in our Family Matters section, of students' claims of abuse at the hands of unidentified teachers in our yeshivos, attests to the significance we attach to the problem. Yet we are constrained to note our serious reservations about how the issue has been treated in The Jewish Week.

Anti-McCarthy McCarthyism

11 Sivan 5763 – June 11, 2003
Joe McCarthy was in the news last week, and once again the Monitor took due note of the fact that the late senator from Wisconsin - certainly when compared with his more hystericalcritics - was a mere piker in the fine art of innuendo and allegation.
