Who’s Watching Anyway? (Me’ilah 2b, 9a)

Raphael Grunfeld
Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Summertime in Massachusetts, one often sees flowers for sale at the side of the road. But there is no salesperson present. Instead, there is a sign requesting $10 for the flowers. You leave the $10 bill on the table and go back to your car with flowers in hand. It is an honors system. There is nobody watching to see if you pay only $5 or if you creep back, retrieve your $10 bill and make off with the money and the flowers. Doing that would be a breach of trust.

As sponsors of the upcoming J Street conference, B’Tselem has had to explain to its Palestinian allies how it can be part of an event featuring as keynote speaker former PM Ehud Olmert, “the Butcher of Gaza.” B’Tselem’s response was typical – a lot of backpedaling and revisions.

We’re Fortunate To Have Ray Kelly As Police Commissioner

William E. Rapfogel
Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

In July 1993, I joined a group of Jewish leaders on a visit to Israel with then-Mayor David N. Dinkins. One morning as we had breakfast at the King David Hotel terrace overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem, Dinkins confided, “I wish Ray Kelly were in charge before Crown Heights blew up.” By this time, Ray Kelly had become police commissioner and had made a clear impact on the mayor.

Santorum, Dutch Euthanasia And Goldstone

Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld
Wednesday, March 21st, 2012
