United Hatzalah program honors our survivors, war veterans with specialized medical care
Yes. His support for Israel would certainly sway my vote, but in general he has built a good reputation for himself. He has a strong track record and has shown himself to be a man of his word.
- Berko Shtaynberger, systems analyst
Yes. I have always been a Giuliani supporter. He is pro-Jewish, pro-working class, and a supporter of the people. In contrast to Hillary Clinton, who kissed Arafat’s wife, Giuliani kicked Arafat out of a UN event at Lincoln Center. As a Holocaust survivor, I admire the man and appreciate his support for the Jewish people.
-Rachel Abramowitz, retired
Yes. I am more inclined to vote for him because of his views on Israel. While none of the candidates are anti-Israel, Giuliani happens to be more outspoken about his support than the others. A president’s stand on Israel is very important to me as a voter and to the Jewish community. Israel is a strong ally of America and it’s a good idea for that to be reflected in our foreign policy.
-Brian Katz, teacher
Yes. He stands out among the other candidates as being more pro-Israel, and for me this is a very important issue. I don’t support an isolationist policy; we need to make sure Israel is protected and taken care of since the events that transpire there will eventually affect us here. And we have an obligation as Jews to make sure the evil that happened in the past doesn’t happen again; this applies to helping Israel as well as combating atrocities in other countries.
-Daniella Allan, dentist

The teenage years are not about surviving. They are about thriving.
Every moment was a gift. I held each one, savoring.
We arrived in Auschwitz on Thursday, January 30, 2014. My seminary was taking us to see where the prisoners were kept. When we got there, I stepped off the bus in complete and total silence. I was in the back, and when we got to the gate I hesitated and started shaking uncontrollably. I couldn’t […]
From the moment Israel was declared a Jewish state, it has been the subject of controversy and struggle.
Now that Pesach is over, we return you to your regularly-scheduled pressing questions: Dear Mordechai, Can I use a nose hair trimmer during Sefirah? Harry Lipman Dear Harry, Yes, as long as your nose hairs are so bad that they’re affecting your job. Like if you have a desk job, and they interfere […]
It is very natural for kids to want attention and to be jealous of each other, especially when there is a new baby.
During the Second World War, a million and a half Jewish soldiers fought in the Allied armies, the Partisan units in Eastern Europe, and the anti-fascist underground movements in Western Europe and North Africa. These Jewish fighters won over 200,000 medals and citations. The Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II in Latrun, […]
The 2-day real estate event will take place in Brooklyn on April 26 and 27.
She wasn’t paying attention to what the child did when the mother was not in the room. Rather, her main focus was on what the child did when the mother returned.
The Mets at least have hope for the future with some good young pitchers.
French thinkers of the Enlightenment were generally not pro-Semitic, to say the least.
My Jewish star was battered, indeed it was a wreck
But I picked it up anyway and put it around my neck
To know that hatred mangled it was surely very painful
But just the same to me it is still very beautiful.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a chavrusa working with you, guiding and helping you in your work environment?
The Jewish Press recently sat down with Chaya Lipschutz, a Brooklyn woman who saved the life of a stranger.
In the past, people used to turn to coffee or orange juice to get through a midday slump, but today, many are turning to power and energy drinks for a quicker and longer-lasting jolt. The power drink industry is booming with projected sales of $9 billion and no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
Every week nearly three million viewers tune into the Bravo cable channel to watch the hit reality franchise “The Real Housewives” – several shows that follow the lives of affluent housewives and professional women residing in several American metropolitan areas (“The Real Housewives of New York,” “The Real Housewives of Los Angeles,” of Miami, of Atlanta, etc.).
Not too many Jewish World War II survivors from Germany can say that they had the distinction of being both interned in a concentration camp and liberating the captives in that same camp. Erwin Weinberg did just that.
Recently I had the opportunity to spend some times with Bernard (Bernie) Walz and get a glimpse of his war experiences.
As I approached the home of Irving and Miriam Borenstein in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn, two things became clear: the pride they feel at being Jewish and their joy at living in America. On their front lawn are large American and Israeli flags with a plaque in front which reads:
Never forget the six million murdered in the Holocaust and the three thousand murdered on 9/11.
May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.
