  • Letters to the editor: Jews in Turkey and Zionophobia on campus

    2 days ago

    Playing Telephone in Turkey Misses the Point

    Sorting out the entire history of Turkish-Jewish relations spanning more than five centuries via editorials and interviews is ineffective, unrealistic and unfair (“At a Breaking Point in Turkey,” March 20).  Lost in such...

    The Bomb: Who and What to Believe

    I always look forward to reading Rob Eshman’s articles. Sometimes they are inspiring, such as the piece on Israeli journalist Itai Anghel. Sometimes not. However, his recent article was one of the few times I’ve felt motivated to respond (“How...

  • Letters to the editor: Hollywood, Selma and European Jews

    February 25, 2015 | 9:40 am

    The Future of European Jewry

    Couldn’t agree more (“Why Jews Must Stay in Europe,” Feb. 20). While Israel is and always will be a home to Jews from all around the world, clearing out of Europe is not the answer.

    Take Notes, Brian Williams

    Mesmerizing interview [with Itai Anghel] — I had no idea (“The Un-Brian,” Feb. 13; appeared online as “Itai Anghel: The Brave Israeli Interviewing ISIS, Kurdish Fighters in Syria”). It is as surreal for the reader to comprehend the humanity and strength...

    Purim Alert: Send Us Your Funny Headlines!

    Every year, the Jewish Journal’s Purim issue features a tabloid-style gloss cover with fake headlines that shock, upset and sometimes even entertain our readers. This year, we’d like to invite you to contribute one or two of your best...

  • Letters to the editor: Running Springs, Mel Brooks and Sun City

    February 4, 2015 | 9:18 am

    We Report, You Decide

    Thanks for telling a complicated story so well (“The Rebirth of Running Springs,” Jan. 30). Bravo to the Journal for reporting the facts for all to see. To those who criticize the story, it could have been far more damaging to Chabad by reporting other...

  • Letters to the editor: Jewish Hebdo, Dr. Maher Hathout and more

    January 21, 2015 | 10:52 am

    Je Suis Jewish Hebdo

    As a longtime reader and subscriber, on occasion my East Coast, slightly politically involved family background will cause me to take a position regarding any number of articles (“Solidarity,” Jan 16). After all, that is one of our jobs as Jews — question...

  • Letters to the editor: Mensches, Rabbi Toba August, OAN and more

    January 14, 2015 | 10:59 am

    Leading Lady of Lev Eisha

    The article “Female Rabbis at Forefront of Pioneering Prayer Communities” (Dec. 19) gave well-deserved recognition to women rabbis who have defined and inspired several previously unserved groups of Jews in the L.A. area and beyond. However, it...

    Rabbis Harold Schulweis and Leonard Beerman: Thank You for the Memories

    Forty years ago, my wife, Marcia, and I attended a service at Valley Beth Shalom and were stunned by Rabbi Harold Schulweis’ intellectual passion, knowledge and remarkable down-to-earth sense of humor (“Rabbi...

    When Neighbors Are Attacked

    How tragically sad and foolish it is to see the Jewish Journal’s cover proclaim “When Neighbors Attack:” Can Israelis protect themselves …” (Nov. 28) and not realize that the two civilian Palestinian women pictured are more obviously needing protection...

  • Letters to the editor: Har Nof attack, Jewish journalism, Obama and more

    November 25, 2014 | 9:05 am

    Revenge Recourse

    No debate: The heinous slaughter in a Jerusalem synagogue was an example of unmitigated evil (“Celebrating the Murder of Jews,” Nov. 21). The subsequent celebrations by some people in Gaza and the West Bank were offensive, sad, disturbing and indicative of...

  • Letters to the editor: Molly Forrest, economics in Palestine and good-looking Jews

    October 29, 2014 | 9:34 am

    Golden Years Shine at the Home

    My mother was one of the fortunate people who became a resident at the Joyce Eisenberg facility (“Molly Forrest Plans the Future,” Oct. 24). They provided her with outstanding care and attention, for which I will be forever grateful.

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

    October 14, 2014 | 9:57 am

    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

    October 7, 2014 | 10:39 am

    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

    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...

    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,...
