Ahead Of The Curve

11/19/2012 - 19:00

I read Gary Rosenblatt’s column about Jewish groups being behind the curve in waking up to the “new America” with a smile the day it appeared (“Behind The Curve On Grasping The New America,” Nov 16).

What Really Matters

11/19/2012 - 19:00

I so appreciated reading Isaac Steven Herschkopf’s essay, “Between Light and Darkness: Lessons from Hurricane Sandy” (Nov. 9) as it resonated with me greatly in the aftermath of the last couple of weeks. His reflections helped me crystallize the lessons I gleaned from this event. 

Christian-Jewish Tensions Over Israel

11/12/2012 - 19:00

 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 (“Jewish-Presbyterian Split Widens Over Israel Letter,” Oct. 19).

Are these leaders aware that there are three formal documents from the three main umbrella Palestinian groups of Fatah, the PLO and Hamas, and all call for the destruction of Israel?

Anti-Semitism On Campus

11/12/2012 - 19:00

It is heartening to read that most of the Boycott, Sanctions and Investment (BDS) campaigns have been largely unsuccessful at numerous campuses across America (‘Little Anti-Israel Activity On Campus,’ Oct. 23), but it is also important to understand that BDS is far from the only anti-Israel activity taking place in our universities.

Thanks For The Laugh

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.

11/05/2012 - 19:00

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

11/05/2012 - 19:00

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

His defense of President Barack Obama combined with his view that Jews need not be concerned about his re-election is not realistic. To state that Obama will be restrained, if re-elected, by existing forces bears no relation to reality. 

A Stark Contrast

11/05/2012 - 19:00

Jerome Chanes, in his op-ed “Orthodox And Liberal, And Lonely On The West Side” (Oct. 26), asks, “So what happened to the Orthodox shuls on the West Side?” He describes the movement to the right in both religious and political affairs among all mainstream Orthodox congregations on the Upper West Side (with the exception of one partnership minyan).

Don’t Pressure Israel

11/05/2012 - 19:00

Regarding Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “’Who’s Best For Israel?’ Not A Simple Question” (Nov. 2), I cannot foresee a situation where it would be in Israel’s best interests for a United States president to pressure it into making concessions. That so-called “tough love” approach just doesn’t make sense.
