Salute to Israel Parade, Manhattan

Question: In the wake of the Winograd Report on last summer’s Lebanon war, should Prime Minister Olmert resign?

 

 


Yes. He completely mishandled the war. Israel entered the war unprepared and the military was misguided. Olmert also didn’t have a backup plan. Israel should have easily won, but because of him they failed. He put soldiers at unnecessary risk. The war dragged on too long and Israel’s goals were unachieved.


– Ariel Kohane, molecular biologist

 


 


No. Forcing Olmert to resign will not solve anything. In fact, I believe it will cause more chaos and promote instability. I think Israel did a good job in the Lebanon war. If Israel were to elect someone new, people wouldn’t be happy anyway. It seems like Israelis won’t be happy no matter who’s in office.


– Arianne Thaler, student

 

 

 



Yes. He is an incompetent leader. Israeli soldiers were taken captive and I see no sign of their return anytime soon. Israel endured heavy losses for no reason. Olmert is not in touch with the citizens of Israel, and I think the people want him to leave.


– Miriam Aubrach, self-employed


 

 

 

 



No. We cannot find someone else to replace him. People need to understand that there will always be casualties in war no matter who’s in charge – this was evident even in biblical times. I approve of his leadership; he’s familiar with the region and knows the people.


– Allan Rothman, retired

Anna Henriques, who hopes to one day head back to Jamaica, says, “Rabbi Raskin must be willing to respect what exists in Jamaica. The way to the future is to gently bring in the traditions of the past and at the same time embrace the idiosyncrasies of the Jamaican people.”

While there are those who insist they need full-color photos to be truly entranced by a recipe, I suggest you get over that particular requirement because the written word here will draw you in and cause you to salivate as you peruse the recipes scattered throughout The Well-Spiced Life (Israel Book Shop).

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.
