In “Rally Here Slams Obama and Jewish Democrats” (April 30), The Jewish Week minimized and mischaracterized my organization, Manhigut Yehudit (the Jewish Leadership Movement).
We are the largest faction inside Israel’s ruling Likud party, as opposed to simply “an Israeli organization,” and we are the main opposition to Israeli leaders as they attempt to give away more of the Land of Israel.

I congratulate The Jewish Week on your article, “Childhood Obesity Hits Israel” (Healthcare, May 7).
The Israel Heart Fund promotes programs to prevent heart disease. In 1999 we initiated a partnership with The Childhood Obesity center at Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba, Israel.
In the title of Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Rethinking, And Rejecting, The ‘Peace Process’” (April 30), he places the words “peace process” in quotation marks. I conclude that to Rosenblatt, the “peace process” is a sham, can never achieve peace and therefore should be set aside. What replaces it?

The story of women’s roles within Orthodoxy has appeared on the front page of The Jewish Week five times in the last eight weeks, including four consecutive weeks (March 5, 12, 19, 26 and again April 23).
