It depends on the case. If there is proof beyond reasonable doubt that an individual committed a brutal crime, then I support capital punishment by any means. However, with all the advances today in criminal investigations – particularly DNA analysis – cases have come to light where we incarcerated innocent people.
I support capital punishment – especially lethal injection, which I think is more humane than the electric chair. It may seem unethical and immoral to some, but the criminal in question is a danger to society. He/she consciously took someone else’s life and we cannot let that go in vain.
No. If someone is convicted of intentional murder, they deserve capital punishment. This will set an example for others who are thinking of committing crimes. In addition, a life sentence for killers is a waste of taxpayer money.

I don’t think methods like lethal injection or the electric chair cause suffering – they’re relatively quick and painless processes. If you do the crime you must face the consequences. It’s not like in other countries where one ruler decides a person’s fate; here a jury of one’s peers decides after long deliberation whether a person is guilty.

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.
