Chipping Away Another Brick in the Wall

Thank you so very much for the excellent description of the celebration (“Lessons From a Wall,” Nov. 14). I lived in Germany almost continuously... read full article

    Star of David Big and Bright Deep in the Heart of Westwood

    As the director of UCLA’s Center for Jewish Studies, I am writing in response to professor Judea Pearl’s article, “Should Campus Racism Be Discussed?” (Oct. 17). While I do not disagree with his desire to foster...

    You’re Your Worst Critic

    I found David Suissa’s article “Exporting Self-Criticism” (Oct. 31) really powerful. Instead of thinking that Israeli President Reuven Rivlin’s words were troubling, I was shown the opposite. Instead of being bothered by Israel being a sick society, it...

    Golden Years Shine at the Home

    My mother was one of the fortunate people who became a resident at the Joyce Eisenberg facility (“Molly Forrest Plans the Future,” Oct. 24). They provided her with outstanding care and attention, for which I will be forever grateful.

    Marvelous Metropolis

    If Rob Eshman is “happy to see light-rail lines rising on the Westside,” he ought to be ecstatic about the light-rail line projected now for the 405 Corridor from Sylmar in the north San Fernando Valley to LAX (“Builders and Shakers,” Oct. 10). Both...

    Tradition, Teshuvah and Trojans

    I am a sometime Christian (more “some” than “time”) who relates perfectly to those Rob Eshman describes in this most excellent column (“What For?” Sept. 26). I totally agree that teshuvah “is not a Jewish thing; it’s a human thing [and that]...

    Young Yisra’el?

    I recently read Rob Eshman’s article about the younger generation and their views of Israel in light of the summer’s violent events (“Young Americans and Israel,” Sept. 5). I applaud the Journal’s courage in presenting the fact that there is a range of views...
