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.

“Without a high school diploma, you couldn’t work as a garbage collector in New York City; you couldn’t join the Air Force. Yet a quarter of our kids still walked out of high school and never came back.”

My mother-in-law is totally devoted to her daughters and their children. Her sons’ children on the other hand are treated like second-class citizens.

Part of the reconstructed Gwozdziec Synagogue.

The Polin Museum of the History of Polish Jews is designed to tell the whole thousand-year story of the Jews in Poland.

This past summer was a powerful one for the Jewish people. I will always remember where I was on June 12th when I found out that Gilad, Eyal and Naftali were kidnapped. I will always remember the look on my sister’s face on June 30th when she told me that they were found. I will […]

Avromi often put other people’s interests before his own: he would not defend people whom he believed were guilty (even if they were willing to pay him a lot of money).

The Presbyterian Church USA voted to divest from three companies that do business with Israel.

How can I help my wife learn to say “no,” and understand that her first priority must be her husband and family?

My eyes skimmed an article on page 1A. I was flabbergasted. I read the title again. Could it be? It had good news for the Miami Jewish community.

Students in early childhood, elementary, and middle school were treated to an array of hands-on projects to create sukkah decorations such as wind chimes, velvet posters, sand art, paper chains, and more.

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.
