IDC Advocacy Room IDC Fights War on Another Front

Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.



Woodbury, Long Island

Question: How do you feel about a possible MTA fare hike?

 

 


It’s unnecessary. The MTA is not thinking about commuters. They keep on raising the tolls, but where are the improvements? The subways aren’t faster or cleaner; they have modernized the interior of some trains but the subway platforms are old, moldy and dirty. The fare hike is too costly and for many people it’s unaffordable. The MTA has enough money; they owe us some proof as to where all this money is going.

It’s bad enough the service is poor; we certainly don’t need another fare hike. When the MTA needs money for certain projects, all of a sudden they have the resources despite claiming a deficit. Where’s all the money going?


- David Izhak, warehouse manager 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s wrong. Just because the MTA claims to have a deficit doesn’t mean that we as commuters should be responsible for fixing it. Obviously the money is not being properly disbursed because it seems like every year or so they cry poverty. Unfortunately, commuters have no choice and are going to have to shell out more money.


- Sarit Varoh, caseworker




 

 

 



If they want to raise the fare they should also step up and improve the service by adding more workers. I work in Midtown, and it seems like I have to wait forever for the B train to show up. We need more trains on the track and more staff on the premises. The MTA has enough money.


-Mark Halpert, traffic manager

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.
