Wow, even in an endorsement The Jewish Week finds some way to knock the Orthodox! Keep it up, I know you really love us.

Thank you so much for this thoughtful endorsement of Hillary Clinton. You have articulated all of the reasons why Mr. Trump should not be elected in November. The safety of Israel is at the forefront of issues for American Jews. I am comfortable with the support that Hillary Clinton has shown Israel and that she has pledged to continue. I have no idea what Mr. Trump thinks since most of his comments are unintelligible.

Courageous editorial. I’m not a Hillary [Clinton] fan and am a swing voter. But this election, there is little to swing for. [Donald] Trump is so beyond the pale in his boorish discourse and even more boorish behavior. At the outset, I was intrigued by his candidacy, but soon dismissed him when I saw no meat inside the wrapper. I had hoped for [Ohio Gov. John] Kasich but, despite her flaws, can live with Hillary. She is worldly, composed, diligent and a pragmatist. She’ll probably be more balanced on foreign affairs than [President] Obama, and domestically more stable for the economy (and for a first, the majority of Fortune 100 companies are backing the Democrat for president).

Re: “Amid Terror, Refugee Advocates Seek Balance” (Sept. 23): In 1973, as a volunteer living on Kibbutz Mizrah, in the Yizrael Valley, I saw my kibbutz friends go off to fight in the Yom Kippur War on multiple fronts. We stayed behind and worked the kibbutz dairy.

So sad (“With Election Nearing, Anxiety On The Pulpit,” Oct. 7).

For any rabbi not to understand how dangerous Hillary Clinton is to the health of the Jewish people is beyond depressing. Shame on them. Her support of the Iran fiasco; her J Street vice presidential running mate; her support of the anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Black Lives Matter movement; and her connection to George Soros.

Even though I agree with the author’s basic point, it borders on sin to equate Clinton and Trump with the blithe phrase “two unpopular presidential candidates widely perceived as seriously flawed” (“As The Election Nears, No Prophetic Voice For The Poor,” Opinion, Oct. 7).
