    Good morning, New York Times.

    The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America has given the Times employees a new view from their office windows.

    A photo shared by media editor Peter Lattman on Twitter on May 23 shows the pro-Israel group's billboard: "The New...

  • We just disagree

    By Rob Eshman

    February 14, 2008 | 5:00 pm

    It's never fun to wake up and find yourself on the wrong side of CAMERA. That's the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting, a Boston-based media watchdog group that monitors the print and electronic press for anti-Israel bias. When the group finds what it considers...
  • Election coverage, CAMERA, illegals, Goldberg, Spinka, Auschwitz

    Election Coverage

    That old joke has no place in your paper (Cover, Feb. 1). Jews, like everyone else, should be voting for who is best for the country; not who is best for the Jews.

    In addition to being wrong, it is grist for the mill of anti-Semites.
    What is good for the country...

  • CAMERA, Sabeel and The Jewish Journal

    By Andrea Levin

    January 31, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Rob Eshman's peculiar attack on CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America ("Butt Out," Jan. 25, 2008), for alerting some of its Los Angeles area members and friends to the pernicious activity of an anti-Israel group called the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation...
  • Butt out

    By Rob Eshman

    January 24, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    I'm always leery when Jewish groups ride in from out of town to try to save us from the bad guys. We have plenty of sharp-eyed Jewish defense groups locally who can tussle on our behalf. It's just a bit condescending to think we rubes, out in America's second-largest Jewish city,...
  • Bedouin life from a child’s eye view through a camera

    By Anita K. Kantrowitz

    September 21, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A young Bedouin boy casually leans against a rough-hewn wooden table, his kaffiyeh blowing in the wind. Laid before him are some of the traditional tools of Bedouin coffee-making, essential to their culture of hospitality. A mortar and pestle for grinding the beans, a large cast-iron...
  • Avoid an Oops in Shooting Your Video

    By David Notowitz

    April 13, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Little Rachel takes her first steps -- but your camcorder battery dies before you get the shot.

    Your family reunion includes Grandma Shirley, whom you haven't seen in 15 years and, frankly, may never see again. You interview her on video, but when you sit down later to watch it, the...

  • Spectator - Lessing’s Shots of Liberty

    By Gaby Friedman

    September 22, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Erich Lessing received his first camera when he exited the synagogue from his bar mitzvah in Vienna in 1936.

    "There was no idea of taking up photography as a profession," said Lessing, 82, from his house in Austria. "In a good Jewish family in Vienna you would only be a lawyer or a...

  • Diaspora: A Photographer’s Quest

    By Gaby Wenig

    October 16, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "My work was driven by a sense of imminent loss," writes Frédéric Brenner in the introduction to his new book, "Diaspora: Homelands in Exile." "Two thousand years of history were about to vanish. I felt a desire and a responsibility to document these permutations of survival in exile...

    Palestinian Perspective

    My thanks to The Jewish Journal for opening its pages to a Palestinian American journalist living in Los Angeles to present a Palestinian perspective on why they initiated an intifada two years ago ("Intifada Fruits: A Palestinian Perspective," Oct. 4). At...

  • CAMERA Is Out of Focus

    By Jeffrey Dvorkin

    October 3, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America's (CAMERA) Andrea Levin wants to start a boycott. She has urged Jewish listeners to stop supporting National Public Radio (NPR). Levin said that NPR's coverage of events in the Middle East amounts to biased reporting and...

  • Television Jews: How Jewish Is Too Jewish?

    By Sally Ogle Davis

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The new television season is upon us. African American and Latino groups are making the expected protests about the lack of people who look like them before and aft of the camera, and the Jews are -- as usual -- adding up their TV IQ on the fingers of one hand.

    If there aren't many...
