The Joy of Sex Ed

07/29/2015

Thank you for your article by Hannah Dreyfus on the importance of pre-marital sex education (“The Joy of Sex Ed,” July 17). It is heartening to see that The Jewish Week recognizes developments in the Orthodox world as we seek to strengthen that most fundamental and challenging cornerstone of Jewish life — an intimate, harmonious and halachically-strong marital relationship.

Clarifying ‘Happiness’

07/29/2015

As our community still reels in sorrow over the tragic death of Fayge Mayer (“We Tried To Be There For Her,” July 24), we face the question of lessons learned, how we can possibly construct meaning from horrific loss.

Premature Polling

07/29/2015

Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Fault Lines Widen As Iran Deal Debate Intensifies” (July 24) noted that “the majority of American Jews appear to support” the Iran deal. As evidence, you cited a J Street poll claiming that 59 percent of American Jews “are in favor” of the deal. In fact, that poll was taken at the beginning of June, six weeks before the agreement was reached.

Thanks to The Jewish Week for documenting an important part of the record of Iran’s state sponsored terrorism (“Iran’s Role Recalled On AMIA Anniversary, Editorial, July 24”).

Before yesterday (July 22), I had both endorsed and urged others to

Approves Iran Deal

It would be nice if our elected political leaders read the Iran nuclear agreement before they attacked it and the international negotiators and allies that brought it forward for their review and approval (“A Deal With The Devil,” Editorial, July 17).

In Praise Of The Claims Conference

07/29/2015

We are survivor leaders from across the U.S. who participated in the recent
 Claims Conference meetings (“Claims Conference Facing New Pressures,” July 17). There is a huge disconnect between the work of 
the Claims Conference and what is reported in the press. In each of our
 communities, New York, South Florida, and Boston, we see the difference that
 the Claims Conference is making.

Facts About The South

Jonathan Mark’s fine [job on his] piece on Judah P. Benjamin notwithstanding (“The Lost Cause, Jewishly,” July 17), it is important you correct the inaccurate historical note.

Bad Deal On Iran

07/22/2015

I am very disappointed and not surprised that President Obama and Secretary of State John
Kerry capitulated to the Iranian theocracy on very key points. (“Israel Facing Agonizing Choice On Iran Deal,” July 17).
