 Reporting the truth about horrible deeds is not an attack on a religious sect (“Is It ‘Anti-Orthodox’ To Seek A Safer Community?” Editor’s Column, Aug. 5) It is a means of protecting current and potential victims. My choice is always enlightenment.
Honest reporting is a means to maintaining the integrity of a newspaper.
Thank you.

Talk about a red herring! The headline of Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Is It ‘Anti-Orthodox’ To Seek a Safer Community?” (Aug. 5), in reference to the anti-Shomrim article in The Jewish Week, is the very definition of one.

Regarding your reporting on the Shomrim, and subsequent responses, it is clear that Orthodox Jews were uniformly offended by your article while secular Jews took pleasure in reading negative stories about the chasidic community. This does not surprise me — we are no longer one people but two parties: The Orthodox are the Republicans, and the secular Jews are the Democrats.

As an observant Jew, I am troubled by the letters appearing in The Jewish Week that are critical of the paper’s coverage of Orthodox Jews.

As a faithful reader for many years, I have always found The Jewish Week’s editorials and reporting to be fair and balanced and critical when needed of all branches of Judaism.

Words alone cannot express my disappointment in the article that Ari Goldman has written (“Telling It Like It Wasn’t,” Aug. 12).

Gary Rosenblatt bemoans the swift and strong criticism against The Jewish Week for “Orthodoxy bashing” arising out of Hella Winston’s stinging criticism of Shomrim and the role it played in the search for Leiby Kletzky (“Is It ‘Anti-Orthodox’ To Seek A Safer Community?” Aug. 5).
