    By Idan Ivri

    August 26, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Eight years ago, when President Bill Clinton was running for a second term, he sent out letters to L.A. synagogues wishing them a happy Rosh Hashanah with a spiritual message for Yom Kippur.

    "I liked what the letter had to say for Yom Kippur, so I read it at the opening to a sermon...

  • Open Debate Preferable to Blind Support

    By David N. Myers

    July 17, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    A recent report in The New York Times captured almost perfectly the thorny questions that stand at the center of relations between the American Jewish community and Israel. Should one be permitted to criticize the government of a foreign country with which one feels a deep affinity,...

    Dear President Bush:

    I am not for invading Iraq. I am not against invading Iraq. I am, I believe, exactly where the vast majority of Americans are these days -- very, very skeptical. The day before your State of the Union address, a Gallup poll showed that support for an Iraq...

  • Letter from Israel:On the Road

    By David Margolis

    March 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    As you might imagine, living in Israel right now feels schizophrenic. We continue with our regular lives -- going to work, eating dinner, shopping, praying, catching a movie -- and meanwhile, not far away, our soldiers are at war. The newspapers appear, the soccer games go on, people...

    By Ari Hier

    January 18, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Dear President Clinton:



    This is the first time I have written a letter of this kind, but I felt it was time to express my feelings on paper.

    I moved from Los Angeles to Jerusalem about 18 months ago. I consider myself middle-of-the-road when it comes to politics, and I believe...

  • Ask Wendy

    November 2, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Wendy Belzberg is as comfortable swapping brisket recipes as she is discussing quantum physics. However, because of her strong Jewish background, many - but by no means all - of the questions she receives tend to have some Jewish content. Don't expect a traditional response; she can...
