Park Slope, Brooklyn

Question: Are you concerned about global warming?

 

 


No. I’ve done some research and I’ve come to the conclusion that the hype on global warming today is like the hype on eugenics years ago. This is the daas Torah of left-wing politics. They want us to focus on big industry issues and divert our attention from the real issues. This is just a ploy by the left wing.


- John Taub, production manager of Unnecessary Objects



 

 


Yes. I’m very much concerned. What’s going to happen years from now? I already see unnatural changes in the climate. We’ve had an unusually warm winter earlier on – I didn’t have to wear my winter coat in December, which is not normal. I don’t believe global warming is a political distraction. Global warming is a slow process. We may not see the effects immediately.

No. I’m concerned about the environment but this is all hype to promote an agenda of fear in politics. Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” fabricated data to instill fear in the public and therefore promote left-wing politics. Global warming is used as a catalyst for the Left’s agenda. It takes the focus off anything else.


- Matt Okin, writer, director

 




Yes. I recently saw a clever cartoon with a picture of a snowman melting and the caption read, “Where is Mr. Frosty?” I need to look more into the topic, though. For instance, I would like to see Al Gore’s documentary since many people have been recommending it. I don’t think the threat of global warming is an exaggeration.

Dr. Lowy believed passionately in higher education for both men and women and would stop at nothing to assist young students in achieving their educational goals.

It’s almost pointless to try to summarize all of the fascinating information that Holzer’s research unearthed.

The special charm of these letters is their immediacy and authenticity of emotion and description.

Why is there such a steep learning curve for teachers? And what can we, as educators and community activists, do better in the educational system and keep first-year teachers in the job?

Teachers, as well as administrators, must be actively involved in the daily prayers that transpire at a school and must set the bar as dugmaot ishiot, role models, on how one must daven.

Often both girls and boys compare their date to their parents.

We love the food, the hotels, and even the wildlife. We love the Israelis.

Few traces remain of the glory days of Jewish life in the kingdoms of Sicily and Naples, but the demise wasn’t due to the eruption of nearby Mount Vesuvius. Rather it was a manmade volcano called the Edict of Expulsion from Spain – and not even an invitation to return in Shevat of 1740 could […]

Garbage in your streets, my city
Wind-blown litter, lonely men

I love you in your blazing heat
my aching feet
dragging in your streets.

These monsters constantly attack
When we dare to try to fight back

With so many new cases of ADHD reported each year, it is important to help children learn how to sit still.

In a time when service to one’s community seems to be a forgotten ideal, it is our pleasure to continue sharing with you the stories of those men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

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.
