Intrigued By Jerry Lewis

02/10/2016 - 10:18

Steve Lipman’s informative article, “Jerry Lewis’ Unseen Holocaust Comedy Brought To Light” (Jan. 15), made
me aware that the comedian undertook, but never completed, a film titled “The Day The Clown Cried.”

Finding The Right Clergy

02/10/2016 - 10:17

Thank you so much for bringing attention to the important topic of helping interfaith families find clergy for their lifecycle events. We appreciate the nod to the “established model” of InterfaithFamily’s Jewish clergy officiation referral service, but your reference (“Unorthodox Celebrations,” Jan. 25) is inaccurate and incomplete.

Real Times Or Fake Times?

02/10/2016 - 10:14

Regarding last week’s story “Fake NY Times ‘Supplement’ Trashes Israel”: The most frightening thing about this “supplement” is that most of us would not have been surprised if those articles appeared in the real New York Times. Indeed, they bear some similarities to ones that already have.

Short-sighted Kotel Deal

02/10/2016 - 09:38

A few crucial factual corrections are needed to Michele Chabin’s article (“Prayer Deal Opens Rift Among Jewish Feminists,” Feb. 5). Women’s prayer services at the Kotel [carried out] with three of four of our [Women of the Wall’s] original goals — group prayer, [reciting prayers] aloud and the option of donning tallit and tefillin — have been held regularly, without incident, since the historic ruling of Judge Moshe Sobel in 2013.

Not Required Reading

02/03/2016 - 09:20

Regarding Michele Chabin’s article, “This Romance Is Too Hot” (Jan. 8): Ms. Chabin is good enough to point out that the government exercised no censorship [in this tale of an Arab-Jewish love story]. It simply took the book off the list of required readings for high school students. Nevertheless, your article suggested that those who object to its removal from that list were narrow-minded people who did not appreciate young people reaching out to other people.

A Different ‘Outrage’

02/03/2016 - 09:18

“Where’s The Outrage” (Jan. 22) was an excellent Editorial criticizing the lack of public and Jewish outrage over the epidemic of maimings and murders of Israelis, as well as BDS activities and other forms of attack.

In Defense Of Yiddish

02/03/2016 - 09:17

I was terribly disappointed to read your article about Donald Trump’s use of Yiddish, and was even more disappointed that the point of the article seems to denigrate Yiddish (“Shvitzing Over Trump’s Embrace Of The Mamaloshen,” Jan. 1).

Blames The New York Times

Your Editorial “Where’s The Outrage” (Jan. 22) notes the murder of Israeli nurse and mother Dafna Meir and asks: “Where is the media coverage?” Unfortunately, The New York Times-led media are biased against Israel.

On Rabbi Hertz Frankel

I read Jonathan Mark’s article about Rabbi Hertz Frankel with great appreciation. (“Satmar And ‘The Last Lion,’” Jan. 15)
