Meir Panim delivers warmth, special care to families in need.
I look at it as a national holiday. Usually I make a barbeque on that day and my family will light up some fireworks. - Meir Dobkin, student
Yes, It means a lot to me, especially because I have friends and family members who are and have been in the military. I remember huge celebrations of the Fourth of July even when I was in Jerusalem. I definitely will be celebrating the day.
No, but I do thank God we have this democratic country. My grandparents came from Ukraine, where there were no freedoms, so I appreciate the significance of the day. However, for me Israel’s Yom Ha’atzmaut is more important. I used to celebrate Israel’s independence day, but lately I don’t, due to all the corruption there.
- Chaim Breitkopf, student
Yes, but generically. I may go out to dinner with my family and watch the fireworks. To me, the day is very important and still very relevant to Americans. The colors of the fireworks reflect our diversity in this country.

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.
