    Kosher Consumers

    I was dismayed to see inaccuracies in Gaby Wenig's article, "Kosher Consumers for a New Age" (Jan.23). She reports that USDA laws permit canned or packaged vegetarian or dairy products to contain up to .2 percent of unlisted animal byproducts, which could also...

    Arnold's Cuts

    As much as I sympathize with Ron Solomon's loss of his brother, his praise of the governor's supposed compassion is premature ("Schwarzenegger's Kindest Un-Cut," Jan. 2).

    Solomon credits Schwarzenegger's "compassion" with reversing cuts that have resulted in a denial...

    Jews and Xmas

    I read with great interest the articles in The Journal about Jewish filmmakers and Christmas movies ("Dreaming of a Blue and White Christmas" and "A Gift From Santa's Jewish Helpers," Dec. 26). I enjoyed them both, but feel they both missed the single most important...

    L.A. Housing Crisis

    Thank you for printing the "Q&A With David Grunwald," (Dec. 5) about the housing crisis in Los Angeles. The current housing crisis demands a multiplicity of responses, including advocacy, grants, loans and services. Our city desperately needs individuals and...

    A Passion Not Shared

    I read the articles about interfaith marriage with a heavy heart ("Married to It" and "Couple Struggles Over Intermarriage," Dec. 19). I am not opposed to this, as I am one of the people you describe in the articles.

    I was raised in very secular, Reform...

    Wanted: Parents

    Two very moving opinion essays appeared on the same page of your Nov. 28 issue.

    Rabbi Yosef Reinman wrote that, amazingly, we still carry a memory of a promise made over 3,000 years ago ("Jewish to the Core"). I see this daily at the Academy for Jewish Religion,...

    Sense of Sorrow

    As a long-time member of Mogen David and the president of the congregation when Rabbi Jonathan Muskat was hired, I read the article titled, "A Shul Torn Apart" (Nov. 14), with a sense of great sorrow and amazement. The board voted not to renew Muskat's contract...

    Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller

    Rob Eshman's article attempts to present a variety of views of what occurred in the very unfortunate altercation between the director of UCLA Hillel, Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller, and a female journalist, Rachel Newirth ("Reckless," Oct. 31). However, his...

    Campus Clash

    I am shocked at your opinion piece, "Reckless," (This Week, Oct. 31). This incident has nothing to do with politics or one's views on Israel. It is a simple case of a rabbi attacking a woman and assaulting her.

    Condoning such an assault is appalling. Let's call it...

    Leaders Stay Silent

    [Avrham Burg's] creed against the reality of the Zionist enterprise, as opposed to the dreams of [Theodor] Herzl, would be understandable were he to put the blame where it rightly belongs: at the doorstep of the Palestinians who, to this day, resist, by both...

    Hirschfeld Dismissal

    What was John Fishel thinking? I am shocked and angry at Fishel and The Jewish Federation for using as a cover the fundraising shortfall to terminate a loyal, effective employee who for 24 years has been a voice and a conscious of the community ("Hirschfeld...

    David Myers

    Being very familiar with the StandWithUs brochure David Myers referred to I am puzzled as to where in its 16 pages there is any mention or implication of Israel as "defenseless in the face of hostile neighbors" (Letters, Feb. 21). I can only conclude that it is Myers'...

    Happy Minyan

    The opinion piece criticizing the Happy Minyan missed the story of what really went on that Shabbat ("Happy Minyan Hits a Sour Note," Jan. 3). First, the author of the piece was greeted at the door by someone who never met him, so that he would feel welcome. Then when...

    INS Tactics

    After Sept. 11, John Ashcroft led a panicked America down a path on which liberty was surrendered for an amorphous sense of security. The cries of the usual suspects on the left – the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP, Muslim Public Affairs Council and the...

    One American Muslim

    Tashbih Sayyed is a true American and a true American hero ("One American Muslim," Dec. 6). We should all support his efforts, as he is able to reach an audience the L.A. Times and The Jewish Journal cannot.

    When Shepherds Desert

    My compliments to Rob Eshman for ("Lesson Plans," Aug. 23). Israeli hasbara is important, and Eshman rightly questions the current PR campaign directed to college campuses. I share Eshman's respect for students "who come to ask questions and, when confronted by a...

    Deeply Regretted

    Six weeks ago, I wrote a piece that was distributed to a few friends that eventually made its way on to the Web. It criticized a number of Jews. I have been frankly shocked by the level of communal uproar it has inspired. It is true that we are living in dangerous...

    Elephant in the Valley

    I hope that readers who revere Judaism resent, as I do, the article, "The Elephant in the Valley," (April 12), quoting statements made by three Jewish political candidates, all contributing to the idea that "the values of Judaism and those of the...

    Friedman's Plan

    Never mind that Israel has followed the prescription of Thomas Friedman and Peace Now, letter by letter, since 1993 ("Half the Kingdom," Feb. 22). The result has been an Israel that is challenged more than anytime since her War of Independence.

    Rather than take...

    Familial Dysautonomia

    UJF Campaign

    I would like to correct a quote I gave Michael Aushenker relative to the results of the 2002 United Jewish Fund Campaign ("Coming Out on Top," Jan. 25). The campaign was extremely successful. However, I stated that the $45 million total did not include an additional $1...

    Aliyah and Israel

    Regarding Amy Klein's cover story ("Anti-Semitism Stirs Aliyah," Dec. 28) one cannot ignore the irony in all of this. The Arabs went through hoops and loops to stem the Jewish emigration from Russia. If there is anything they don't want is more Jews living in...

    Some of the letters we get here at the Jewish Journal are quite flattering. Some people relate that they find my biweekly musings to be pithy and funny (thanks, mom!). If these people can be trusted, they are laughing out loud, weeping with laughter, dying of laughter. I've killed...

    Rubin is innocent unless proven guilty at trial.
