Like the candidate, the audience was Orthodox and likely to be staunch in its defense of Israel. So Noach Dear lost no time in making his pitch explicit.
“We have how many shomer Shabbos politicians?” he asked the Sunday morning bagels-and-cream-cheese crowd gathered to hear him at the Young Israel of Far Rockaway last month, using the term for Sabbath observers. Touting his campaign to represent them in Congress, Dear urged, “This is a way to contribute to the community.”

Binaymin Jolkovsky, the good hearted and very hard working editor of Jewish World Review, a terrific online magazine with reprints of just about every great newspaper column in America, along with wonderful, inspirational Jewish material, podcasts, and even comics, was taken to the hospital by ambulance this week. He left a note to his readers, he ”apologizes for not being able to publish” while he’s flat on his back.
Pray for him, his Hebrew name is Binyamin Leib ben-Pesha.
