    Gay Marriage

    Dennis Prager is fond of presenting his audiences with either/or riddles to solve ("Gay Marriage," May 14). Here is one for him: Which is more harmful to society, homosexual marriage or heterosexual adultery?

    In my 25 years as a practicing clinical psychologist,...

    Arab American Protest

    I wanted to add one more dimension to your report about the March 27 rally against Israel's elimination of Sheikh Yassin, held in front of the Israeli Consulate ("Arab Americans Stage Protest at Israeli Consulate," April 2).

    I was there as part of a quickly...

    Silverlake JCC

    I always assumed that a healthy part of our donations to The Federation went to support our local JCCs and support Jewish education ("Members Rally to Save Centers," March 26).

    Now The Federation's commitment seems to be to building some flashy building in an area...

    My Culture War

    Just a quick note to say thank you for standing up for both free speech and Howard Stern in your column ("My Culture War," March 12).

    My mother-in-law said to tell you that she is 78 years old, is also a Stern fan and appreciates the stand you took on this issue and...

    Robbie Conal

    It is a sad commentary that The Jewish Journal chooses to designate Robbie Conal's propaganda "message art" ("Conal's the Poster Boy for 'Art Attack,'" Feb. 27). I don't need The Journal to tell me how to vote in the upcoming elections but Conal's left-wing message is...

    GLBT Jews

    I'm a member of Beth Chayim Chadashim. I want to say how heartening it is to read your words, and the words of Rabbi David Ellenson last week ("'Til Death Do Us Part," Feb. 13 and "Countering the Family Values Monopoly," Feb. 6). You do so much to take the conversation...

    The Kosher Queen

    One month before the revolution, my family and I fled Iran and headed for London ("An Unkosher Affair," Jan. 23). Early on, I was invited to a Hadassah meeting at the home of Rabbi Emmanuel Jacobowitz, where Mrs. Jacobowitz welcomed me with open arms. One of the...

    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

    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

    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...

    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

    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

    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.
