  • ‘Chai’ Time to Celebrate

    By Ruth Weisberg

    October 10, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Dennis Prager uses half of what I said to the L.A. Times and gives the impression that I am one of those awful leftists who are "either morally confused, immoral or lack courage." Here is the complete quote, which shows that I was describing a dilemma, not my political position:...
