In Dennis Prager's response to the letters to the editor, he welcomed dialogue, and described the letters as "hateful." The letters simply name the harm caused to transgender people. If defense of a right to dignity is hateful, then I'm not really sure what kind of dialogue he is...

I want to thank Rob Eshman for his review of the important Town Hall on Religious Pluralism that took place at Temple Emanuel last week and for his moderating a community conversation in which people have such passionate and diverse opinions. What he didn’t mention...

Rob Eshman's piece, "Our Hindu Widows" is literally unbelievable (Aug. 10). I am a marriage-minded 52-year-old SJM. I have never been married and want to find my match and start a family. The only really practical advice I have ever heard is "Buy a mansion in...
