  • Letters to the editor: An L.A. light-rail, mourner’s Kaddish and encyclopedias

    1 week ago

    Marvelous Metropolis

    If Rob Eshman is “happy to see light-rail lines rising on the Westside,” he ought to be ecstatic about the light-rail line projected now for the 405 Corridor from Sylmar in the north San Fernando Valley to LAX (“Builders and Shakers,” Oct. 10). Both...

  • Letters to the editor: Teshuva, Seoul food and a minyan a day

    2 weeks ago

    Tradition, Teshuvah and Trojans

    I am a sometime Christian (more “some” than “time”) who relates perfectly to those Rob Eshman describes in this most excellent column (“What For?” Sept. 26). I totally agree that teshuvah “is not a Jewish thing; it’s a human thing [and that]...

  • Letters to the editor: Khuzaa, Steven Sotloff, Azerbaijan and firing ranges

    September 23, 2014 | 9:25 am

    The Fog of Narrative

    With the article “Inside the Fog of War” (Sept. 12), the Jewish Journal joins many other media outlets in publicizing Palestinian suffering. It’s an easy story to write. The photos and witness accounts are plentiful and sympathetic. It’s truthful,...

  • Letters to the editor: Young Americans and Israel, Steven Sotloff and Dennis Prager

    September 10, 2014 | 10:10 am

    Divided by a Common Goal

    In Rob Eshman’s interesting editorial piece “Young Americans and Israel” (Sept. 5), he writes, “The people in charge of Gaza aren’t exactly Quakers.” This is true, but readers may be surprised to learn that many Palestinian leaders have been trained in a...

  • Letters to the editor: Elon Gold, Daniel Pearl, ISIS and Israeli field hospitals

    September 3, 2014 | 9:57 am

    A War at Home

    Having just read “Drive-by Hate” (Aug. 29), as a Protestant of Italian descent, it occurred to me that everyone should read this, then close their eyes and imagine the scene, the Gold family happily enjoying Shabbat and their time together, when this happened). Try...

  • Letters to the editor: Listening to teachers and understanding Israel and Hamas

    August 13, 2014 | 9:55 am

    Protesters of Violence Can’t Be Protectors of Hamas 

    I would like to comment on Rob Eshman’s recent editorial in the Jewish Journal “Peaceniks for Murder” (Aug. 8). For the sake of openness, I do not read the Journal; I had ordered a pizza from a kosher restaurant and picked up...

  • Letters to the editor: The Gaza conflict and cycles of war

    August 6, 2014 | 10:21 am

    United Under Fire

    I have always enjoyed reading David Suissa’s columns, but this last one ... it really touched me as a Jew and as a human being (“Gaza War: Taking Sides,” July 25). You wrote words out of my mouth — just better than I would have.

    Sheila Ellman via email

    That...

  • Letters to the editor: Max Steinberg, civilian casualties, victim narratives and more

    July 30, 2014 | 9:45 am

    Honoring Max

    To Evie and Stuart and Paige and Jake,
    You were blessed with a wonderful son and brother (“A Fallen Soldier, Max Steinberg Found His Purpose in Israel,” July 25). We were blessed by his service to defend and protect our country. We could call upon and count upon Max...

  • Letters to the editor: Iron Dome, Tesla crash, PETA and more

    July 23, 2014 | 9:25 am

    Prayers Overseas

    David Suissa’s article was terrific, and I pray for his daughter’s safety (“Israel Needs an Irony Dome,” July 18). I also have a lot of family in Israel now. ... I have often thought lately that the Journal was too tough on Israel but seems better now. Keep up...

  • Letters to the editor: Murders in Israel, coexistence, Jewish Renewal and more

    July 16, 2014 | 8:58 am

    Deadly Impact

    This crime hasn’t any impact on my feelings for Israel (“Does the murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir Make You Doubt Israel? It Should,” July 11). The national response to the crime might. But not the crime itself. 

    If the sentiment to kill Palestinians because they are...

  • Letters to the Editor: Garcetti’s f-bomb, JCC and L.A. Metro

    July 2, 2014 | 5:04 pm

    Expletive Explanations

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, in an ill-advised attempt to polish his “common man” persona, dropped the F-bomb. Dennis Prager, leaping from his springboard of indignation, makes an equally ill-advised attempt to connect a rise in the public use of...

  • Letters to the editor: Father’s Day, Theodore Bikel, the ethics of keeping kosher and more

    June 18, 2014 | 9:01 am

    You Can’t Spell ‘Father’ Without ‘Her’

    This is one of the most thoughtful and touching columns to appear in recent memory (“From Dad’s Art Studio to the Rabbi’s Bimah,” June 13). How lucky for Rabbi Zoe Klein to be his daughter, and how lucky for him to be her father. And thank...

  • Letters to the editor: BDS, UCLA and the VA

    June 4, 2014 | 9:58 am

    The Why, Not the What

    Jared Sichel’s article on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement at UCLA is a thoughtful exposure of the current tactics used by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) groups to push their agenda on that and other campuses (“Battleground...

  • Letters to the editor: J Street and Tel Aviv

    May 21, 2014 | 10:00 am

    Left, Right and U-Turns on J Street

    David Suissa’s article “J Street’s Real Failure” (May 16) was full of factual errors and falsehoods, and he was also wrong in his overall argument. 

    As Suissa should know, because he spoke at the J Street National Conference, J Street opposes...

  • Letters to the editor: Exodus, spirituality and anti-Semitism

    April 23, 2014 | 10:20 am

    Barking Up the Wrong ‘Free’

    I must admit that each time I read a good argument supporting each position (1) the Bible is to be taken literally and (2) the Bible is not to be taken literally, I find I am moved by both positions (“Did the Exodus Happen?” April 18). They are both...

  • Letters to the editor: Bill Maher and Dennis Prager on global warming

    April 9, 2014 | 9:49 am

    Bill Maher: It’s Complicated

    Bill Maher infuriates me, but I want to have a beer with him. I don’t even want to change his mind. We all have people in our lives who we love that make us crazy. There is even a name for them: Family. 

    OK Bill, what will you have? I’m buying.

  • Letters to the editor: Rob’s goodbye and connecting to Judaism

    March 12, 2014 | 11:35 am

    Not ‘Goodbye,’ Just ‘See You Later’

    I was disappointed to read Rob Eshman’s last column (“Why We Write,” March 7). I will so miss it during the time you are away. It’s the first thing I read in the Journal. I am a home delivery subscriber and have been ever since I had back...

  • Community response to David Suissa on Charedi draft

    March 12, 2014 | 9:42 am

    [The Charedi draft debate: David Suissa /
    Dr. Irving Lebovics responds / Knesset passes Charedi draft law]

    David Suissa said that the Charedim are portraying a Chilul Hashem and should serve in the army. I disagree with his opinion. The Charedim are not targeting to hurt anyone,...

  • Letters to the editor: Disabilities in the Jewish community, rain and saving Judaism

    February 19, 2014 | 2:40 pm

    One Man’s Disability, A Community’s Responsibility

    Thanks, Rob Eshman, for making this issue more salient (“Jews Without Harvard,” Feb. 14). My three children tested as “gifted” or “highly-gifted” and I’m glad I pulled them out of the specialized highly-gifted schools, and out of...

  • Letters to the editor: North Korea, AIPAC, BDS and more

    February 12, 2014 | 12:16 pm

    The Holocaust Abroad

    Thank you for your excellent cover and feature story on North Korea (Holocaust in the Hermit Kingdom,” Jan. 24.)  The following week was our annual student-led retreat at AJRCA.  We were so moved by the story that, in memory of International Holocaust...

    North Korea’s Familiar Struggle

    I am writing to give you a heartfelt thanks for the cover story on the human rights situation in North Korea (“Holocaust in the Hermit Kingdom,” Jan. 24). I was born in the United States, my parents are South Korean immigrants, and in my family...

    Just Say ‘No’ to China

    Three years ago, in a letter to the Los Angeles Times, I called for a boycott of China based on its own abuses: from the selling of women by psychiatric hospitals as sexual partners, to forced labor, torture and murder, denial of human rights and the theft...

  • Letters to the editor: UCLA’s agenda, Eshman’s pomegranate tree and the wealthy Americans

    January 22, 2014 | 10:24 am

    The Liberal Agenda 

    Dennis Prager contends that American university curricula promote a liberal agenda (“UCLA’s Further Deterioration,” Jan. 10). In fact, the opposite is true. The traditional university education subtly taught generations of students that the only subjects...

  • Letters to the editor: Pomegranate trees, money in the Jewish community and UCLA

    January 15, 2014 | 9:59 am

    A Love That’s Deeply Rooted

    This article brought tears to my eyes as I, too, have a tendency to fall in love with my trees (“Pom Wonderful,” Jan. 10). So I would urge you, if you have not already done so, to consult with a certified and licensed arborist before heeding the advice...

  • Letters to the editor: Jordan Belfort, Azerbaijan and defending Israel

    January 8, 2014 | 2:39 pm

    Treating the Moral, Ethical Sickness Spread by MoneyÏ

    As a state and federal criminal prosecutor, I can tell you that for every Bernard Madoff or Jordan Belfort, there are dozens of Jewish white-collar criminals you will never read about (“ ‘The Wolf’ and the Jewish Problem,”...

    December 19, 2013 | 11:06 am

    Freedom of Speech Demonstrated Here

    Every few weeks there is a letter urging the Jewish Journal to discontinue Dennis Prager. I have never seen a letter asking that Marty Kaplan be discontinued. Either a) everyone likes and agrees with Marty Kaplan or b) the readers who want...

    Addressing the Bigger Wrong

    Rob Eshman is right to question George W. Bush’s decision to address the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute (“Why Bush Was Wrong,” Nov. 15), but I feel there is another issue that he should have addressed in this context: the Jewish position toward...

  • Letters to the editor: George W. Bush, the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute and Jewish pluralism

    November 20, 2013 | 2:38 pm

    This Argument Will Not End Until the Messiah Comes 

    Rob Eshman’s criticism of former President George W. Bush’s public support for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute (MJBI) is well put (“Why Bush Was Wrong,” Nov. 15). However, the participation of a former president in MJBI’s...

    Drone Issue Complicated Yet Simple: It’s About Ethics and Morality

    Thank you for the great article “The Torah of Drones” (Nov. 8). It’s extremely important and well written.

    My only concern is that the question regarding the morality of deciding who shall live and who shall die...

    Western Wall Negotiation

    Women of the Wall did not decide to pray on [Religious Affairs Minister Naftali] Bennett’s sun deck (“A Kotel Platform for No One?” Oct. 25). We decided to negotiate with the government on the creation of a third section at the Kotel. This section will...
