Mormon Comparison

04/09/2014

Re Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Move Over, Millennials” (March 21): Interesting comparison of Mormons and Jews. The writer missed a further comparison when he wrote about engaging Baby Boomers. The Mormons have a very active program of Senior Missionaries who serve in a multitude of ways for one to three years. They are an incredible resource and stabilizing influence in the Mormon missionary effort.

Favors Horse-Drawn Carriages

04/09/2014

Thanks to Jonathan Mark for his excellent article, “The Last Roundup?” (April 4).

Although I am busy packing for an extended trip to Israel, I feel impelled to write. When Mayor de Blasio took office I was dumbfounded to hear that one of his first pronouncements was to ask for the end to the horse-drawn carriages in Central Park. How totally absurd.

Mistreating Horses

I am appalled that the article, “The Last Roundup?” (April 4), did not even mention the reasons Mayor de Blasio and other rational and compassionate people are pushing for a ban on the horse-drawn carriage industry.

Largely Ignored

Thank you for the March 21 piece “Move Over, Millennials” and the shout-out regarding Boomers. I saw the article as I was preparing to teach my class at HUC.

Boomer Bonds

04/02/2014

One of the things I’ve heard about the Millennials is that they consider their parents to be their best friends. (“Move Over, Millennials,” Between the Lines, March 21.) Yet no one has made use of this powerful bond between parent and child. Why not engage Boomers in the process of engaging their children?

Help For Boomers

04/02/2014

Gary Rosenblatt’s “Move Over Millennials” (Between the Lines, March 21) surfaces apparent imbalances in focus as well as new funding in the Jewish “field.” As someone fortunate to be involved in Birthright’s start-up years, it’s truly amazing and encouraging that 350,000 young adult Jews were provided with a unique opportunity to connect/re-connect to their cultural “belonging.” The new mega-funded national initiative, The Alliance, focusing on enhancing the talent pipeline for emerging professionals, is also much needed.

Feeling Aged Out Of Jewish Life

04/02/2014

I completely agree with Gary Rosenblatt about the need to engage the entire range of the Jewish community to fully invest in the future of the Jewish community and Israel (“Move Over, Millennials,” Between the Lines, March 21).
