    Barking Up the Wrong ‘Free’

    I must admit that each time I read a good argument supporting each position (1) the Bible is to be taken literally and (2) the Bible is not to be taken literally, I find I am moved by both positions (“Did the Exodus Happen?” April 18). They are both...

  • Letters to the editor: Tikkun olam in North Africa, violence against women and global warming

    Supply and Demand

    David Suissa indicates that tikkun olam didn’t exist in places like North Africa (“Jews Helping Non-Jews,” March 28). But he fails to mention that its absence was due to lack of necessity, not a tribal instinct to “put one’s own first.” He bemoans the supposed...

    Bill Maher: It’s Complicated

    Bill Maher infuriates me, but I want to have a beer with him. I don’t even want to change his mind. We all have people in our lives who we love that make us crazy. There is even a name for them: Family.

    Getting a Solution 

    Thank you, Ryan Torok, for your excellent coverage of the “get” story (“Till Get Do Us Part,” March 28). The “wedding” was a Chillul HaShem, a desecration of God’s name.

    The protest is a Kiddush HaShem, the sanctification of the God’s name.

    Those rabbis...

    The Ways We Slice It

    Thank you for presenting a fascinating theoretical debate on calling Israel the “Jewish state.”

    Secretary of State John Kerry proclaims the “Jewish state” issue makes negotiation so much more complicated (“The Jewish State Problem Won’t Go Away,” March 21)....

    Thoughts From a ZOA Elite 

    Rob Eshman contends that a peace agreement with the Palestinians would bring huge benefits for Israel. Unfortunately, his argument does not stack up (“The Bright Side,” March 7).

    Mr. Eshman says that a peace will protect Israel as a Jewish and...

    Not ‘Goodbye,’ Just ‘See You Later’

    I was disappointed to read Rob Eshman’s last column (“Why We Write,” March 7). I will so miss it during the time you are away. It’s the first thing I read in the Journal. I am a home delivery subscriber and have been ever since I had back...
