The Celebrate Israel Festival on May 31 at Pier 94, slated to be the largest gathering to date of Israeli-Americans in New York.
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.

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

“Can I wear tefillin in the bathroom?” That was the question US Private Nuchim Lebensohn wrote to Mike Tress, president of the Agudath Israel Youth Council, in a letter dated November 18, 1942.

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.

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.
