    When Shepherds Desert

    Joel Kotkin misses the mark in his critique of rabbis who oppose Valley secession ("When Shepherds Desert Their Flocks," Nov. 1). Kotkin writes, "it seems unlikely that most of our esteemed, prominent rabbis ever really considered the arguments of the...

    Battle on Campus

    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...

    Passover Cover

    I loved the photo illustration used on the cover of your Passover issue ("Happy Passover," March 15). It was refreshing to see popular culture such as surfing fused with stories of Jewish history. Such images strike the attention of the younger masses and help open...

    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

    Ellen Jaffe-Gill's article ("No News Is Bad News," Jan. 25) well-defined the symptoms of familial dysautonomia (FD), and it certainly let readers know about efforts made to make genetic testing available in the Los Angeles Jewish community. However, there is...

    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...

    Irv Rubin

    Jewish organizations had a field day denouncing Irv Rubin and his Jewish Defense League. All claimed he had no support in the Jewish community anywhere.

    Rubin is innocent unless proven guilty at trial.

    It is difficult to believe that this intelligent, articulate Jewish...

    JCC Closures

    The organized Jewish community uses its most needy members to raise money. Elderly, low-income and disabled Jews are featured in ads to attract donations. But it seems that when push comes to shove, these are not the folks whose needs are cared for by the powers that...

    Lee Baca

    The Jewish Journal's cover story on Sheriff Lee Baca ("Lee Baca's Brotherhood Crusade," Nov. 9) suggests Los Angeles County's top cop is not "entirely above suspicion," that he may just be campaigning for re-election as he pursues intensive efforts to bring Jews and...

    International News

    Regarding international news -- or the lack of it -- Rob Eshman mentions the producers, the network executives and the advertisers ("The Global Minute," Oct. 26). I think the chain goes one step further to the consumers. If viewers were interested in...

    Joel Kotkin

    Joel Kotkin is absolutely right that Jews must seek a new dynamic and relationship to our national politics in this war on terrorism ("A New Reality for Jews," Oct. 12).

    It is time to question and re-examine not only personal attitudes and political values, but also...

    Terror in America

    Tuesday morning began as the kind of sunny day that made you glad to be alive. Sadly, that day, the United States joined the majority of nations who know devastation firsthand. Am I surprised that the United States was hit by terrorism? No. But I am astonished...

    Conflict in Israel

    Kudos to Rabbi Dov Fischer ("Time to Survive," Aug. 24) and to The Jewish Journal on its best edition ever.

    It is time to take notice that there are many issues regarding the Palestinians that are ticking time bombs. Yasser Arafat teaching hate to future...

    I mourn with Alan and Shifra Hayman on the untimely loss of their beloved daughter, Shoshana, a sweet person with whom I have had the pleasure of being friends with since I was a little boy growing up in the San Fernando Valley.

    Israeli Solidarity

    On July 22, a number of progressive Jewish organizations stood together at a rally that was billed as an expression of "solidarity with the people of Israel." We came because we believe that love and support transcends ideology.

    To be sure, we were concerned that...

    JCC Reforms

    Teresa Strasser, my heart cries for you, girlfriend. I know you are a 20-something writing a singles column, but how much pain are you going to take? You don't need this tszuris -- meeting guys on your own who come over late at night to feign headaches and...

    Holocaust Payments

    James D. Besser's article ("Dear Bill: Thanks a Lot," Feb. 16) contained a very valuable lesson to the effect that donations of big money need to be looked at carefully. The same applies to the news that suddenly, 55 years after the end of World War II, the Dutch...

    Henry Waxman

    The article on Henry Waxman is full of praise, yet understated ("Undefeated Champion," Jan. 26).

    If excellence is measured by the amount of good one does in life, then Rep. Waxman is one of the greatest Americans in history.
