    A few days before we heard the horrible news of the three boys who got kidnapped in Israel, Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) leader Mort Klein visited the Jewish Journal offices to speak to our editorial staff.

    He said a lot of things over the course of a lively one-hour...

    I fully expected to be immersed in the intricacies of money-making when I attended the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting last month in Omaha, Neb. Actually, calling an event that attracts close to 40,000 raving fans a “meeting” is ridiculous. As a friend of mine says, it’s...

    Just when J Street’s reason-for-being, a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, fell into a deep coma, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations gave the “pro-peace, pro-Israel” group new life by rejecting its bid to join the umbrella...
