    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Shoshana Greenbaum

    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.

    Chandler Boulevard

    Your article did an excellent job of explaining the divergent views in the San Fernando Valley concerning the proposed busway ("Taking on the MTA," June 15).

    A number of residents and groups in the West Valley do not want the busway in their residential areas...

    Re: "Our Birthright," by Gene Lichtenstein (Jan. 15):

    A Jewish tour of Europe certainly would be enlightening for some, but clearly an Israel experience is more fundamental and transformative, appealing to Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews alike.

    An Israel program is a "whole body" Jewish...
