Assessing the alarmingly tense relationship at the moment between Washington and Jerusalem, I'm reminded of one of my favorite Chelm stories.

It's the one about the man walking down the street one night when he approaches his friend, who is positioned under a bright street lamp and searching for something on the ground.

I read with a mix of admiration and frustration, as well as a touch of amusement, Gary Rosenblatt’s column about Orthodox feminism (“Toward A Level Praying Field,” March 5).

 Gary Rosenblatt deserves our approbation for bringing Jack Wertheimer’s incisive Commentary article to a broader audience (“Can We Afford To Make Others A Priority?” March 12).

I would encapsulate my reading of Wertheimer’s main point by paraphrasing the late Sy Syms: “A Jewishly educated Jew is our best Jew.”

Ever since the Israelites fled Egypt and crossed the Red Sea in miraculous fashion — a seminal act in Jewish history commemorated and celebrated in the upcoming Passover seders — the Jews have been a nation and a people.

Remember “The Poseidon Adventure,” the melodramatic 1972 film about a group of desperate passengers aboard an aging, ill-fated luxury liner about to sink?

Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Toward A Level Praying Field” (March 5), would have brought a smile to the face of Rabbi Emanuel Rackman, z”l, and certainly would have been music to his ears. Thank you.
