Jonathan Mark’s article, “Immersed In Jewish Meditation” (March 6) about Rabbi Yoel Glick and his book, “Living the Life of
Jewish Meditation,” was lovely. Thank you for sharing and bringing to us an
awareness of Jewish meditation. His book is great and perfect for any Jew who
is interested in meditating.

In your Editorial about Eric Fingerhut’s decision to withdraw from the
upcoming J Street Conference, I’m not sure which of two remarks made me laugh

I have been an avid reader of The Jewish Week for decades and an active supporter of its courageous willingness to expose and confront painful issues in the Jewish community. I am, therefore, both puzzled and genuinely angered by your apparent inability to publish anything about J Street, the pro-Israel pro-peace organization of which I am a very proud member, without referring to it as “left wing.”

Sunday, March 8, which marked 50 years and one day after “Bloody Sunday,” I
was among the 100,000 people in Selma, Ala., who chose to walk in the
footsteps of the righteous (“Still More Bridges To Cross,” March 13). We came to Selma not just to commemorate the
civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery that lead to the Voting Rights
Act but also to recommit to carry on the work, begun those years ago, which
is still unfinished.

Anti-Semitism on American campuses is not news. But actually catching an indisputable moment that verifies it is news. That moment happened in February at UCLA when a student interviewing for a position on the Student Council’s Judicial Board was asked effectively if being Jewish would make her biased in favor of other Jews.
