  • So Israel is a little bit of a fixer-upper…

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    5 days ago

    In recent years, it seems as if every policy Israeli decision makers issue is followed by massive, harsh criticism by the global community. World leaders use every opportunity to look down at Israel's leaders, judge them for their "problematic decision" and urge them to reconsider...

  • Premarital Sex, Orthodox Jews & Censorship

    By Ilana Angel

    December 15, 2011 | 9:57 am

    Stern College for Women is part of Yeshiva University of Manhattan.  It is an Orthodox Jewish school, and while it has classes that are religious based and not, it is a religious campus and the rules and regulations of Orthodoxy are followed.  Even if it means censorship.

  • In the Mideast, Israel is the opium of the people

    December 31, 2008 | 1:57 pm

    "Why aren't you as an Arab lady writing about Gaza?"

    "Where are your columns about Gaza?"

    "Say the Israelis are wrong!"

    By Gina Nahai

    November 8, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    If you grew up as I did, on more than one continent and surrounded by people of different faiths, you know what I mean when I say I've never had real heroes: For every truth in one place, I've encountered doubt in another; for every icon in one culture, I've met iconoclasts in...

    A Civil Tone

    Last week's Letters section offered a fascinating window on the views and feelings of our community (Letters, Feb. 23). Most of the letters were thoughtful, informative and passionate. Two stepped over the line.

    Shutting Jewish Mouths

    We were surprised to read the mischaracterization of the American Jewish Committee (AJCommitee) in Rob Eshman's column ("Shutting Jewish Mouths," Feb. 16).

    As our 175,000 constituents know, we welcome a wide range of viewpoints in the AJCommitee "tent" and...
