In the title of Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Rethinking, And Rejecting, The ‘Peace Process’” (April 30), he places the words “peace process” in quotation marks. I conclude that to Rosenblatt, the “peace process” is a sham, can never achieve peace and therefore should be set aside. What replaces it?

As the Jewish Agency for Israel focuses on a new strategic plan to remain relevant at a time of shrinking funds, some might call it the March of Dimes syndrome.

 The question that frames Gary Rosenblatt’s April 9 column is  “what will Yom Hashoah be like in a decade or two, when there are no more survivors to give witness?” It is one that we at the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust have been actively addressing. The World Federation is an international umbrella organization of more than 50 independent groups of survivors who lived through the Holocaust as children.

Why, oh why, did Gary Rosenblatt feel it necessary to mar an otherwise comprehensive column on the British chief rabbi’s appearances in the United States and the status of halachic leadership of Modern Orthodoxy with the unnecessary and erroneous parenthetical comment that “many prominent rabbis have been brought down by scandal?”  (“Hail to the Chief,” April 23).

One side effect of the current showdown between Washington and Jerusalem is that it has provided an opportunity for American diplomats and Mideast experts to step back and reassess the situation, and the results have been fascinating. Several key figures long involved in pushing the Oslo/land-for-peace equation are now saying quite bluntly that it doesn’t make sense, at  least for now, and that the Obama administration should back off.

 I found the article by, and Gary Rosenblatt’s interview of, Elie Kaunfer to be very interesting (April 2). I agreed with a number of Kaunfer’s points but disagree with his de-emphasis on Jewish experiences. In fact, the success of Chabad around the world is an example of meaningful Jewish experience being an important gateway to learning.
