Thank you so much for your description of Sheldon Adelson as “an internationally renowned entrepreneur”  (“The Case For Romney,” Opinion, Oct. 19).

 
It was the best laugh I had in ages.

Helping The Underserved On L.I.

We read with great interest your article, “Surge Of Poor In NY Suburbs Poses Challenge” (July 17), as our organization, M’Yad L’Yad - Long Island’s Helping Hands, is intimately involved in providing services to this emerging, burgeoning and now underserved population.

Doesn’t Trust Obama

I am unhappy with the content of James Besser’s analysis (“Election Won’t Alter U.S. Mideast Policy,” Oct. 19).

Obama Supports Israel

I have difficulty understanding The Jewish Week editorial raising questions with regard to President Barack Obama’s position on Israel (“Pushing The Candidates On Mideast Policy,” Oct. 12).

Christian Leaders Off Base

Palm Beach, Fla.

I don’t know what alleged specific accusations of human rights violations the 15 leaders of the Christian churches are referring to in their calls for Congress to reconsider U.S. aid to Israel (“Not Going To Sit Around And Say Kumbaya,” Oct. 19).

Too Jewish?

Teaneck, N.J

I, like Ted Merwin, your newspaper’s theater critic, am also obsessed with Judaism (Culture View, Oct 26). He got it almost right when he admitted that Judaism for him is not necessarily the obsessive-compulsive rituals, but the Big Picture, which is the central credo of Judaism, the Shema, to be aware of God constantly. But he drops the ball when he writes that nearly everyone believes in God, so big deal. He continues to falter when he writes that being Jewish is not traditional religious behaviors but is instead a “state of mind.”

Not Uniform Automatons

It’s really too bad that the author’s ability to maintain a complex, multilayered identity comes at the cost of his ability to appreciate nuance in groups different from his own (Shmoozefeed blog on Post Day School Guilt Disorder).

My friends and I verily enjoyed reading Michael Snow’s Shmoozefeed blog, “A Serious Case of PDSGD (Post Day School Guilt Disorder”).

Missing Phrase

10/22/2012 - 20:00

In the article “Youth Vote Here Seen Up For Grabs” (Oct. 12), it is stated “[President Barack] Obama in May 2011 called upon Israelis to return to the pre-1967 borders ... which would require Israel giving up all or part of the West Bank, east Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights.”

This is of course not true. What he said was, “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.”
