Trump: No Way!

During my recent trip to Israel laying to rest my beloved wife, may she rest in peace, many Israelis, as well as articles in The Jerusalem Post and in the JT, have expressed concern about Donald Trump becoming the next president of the United States. In essence, I told the Israelis that based on my… Read More

On Closer Inspection

Right diagnosis, wrong patient (“Misleading with Contempt,” May 13). David Samuels, the author of The New York Times piece cited, is a long-standing implacable foe of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action who has even supported, in print, an Israeli air strike against Iran. As J.J. Goldberg notes in his Forward analysis “What That Ben… Read More

Read ‘My Promised Land’

I can’t believe that any Jewish Democrat or Republican could be sympathetic toward the Palestinians for killing Jews in Israel (“Israeli Lives Matter,”  May 13). What are the Jews doing to these poor souls that justify the Palestinians’ murderous actions? I will be glad to argue with any Jew who has that attitude, providing that… Read More

Engage at Myerberg

I enjoyed your Insider Focus on Seniors and would like to share with Jewish Times readers that the Edward A. Myerberg Center offers many programs which promote mental and physical health for older adults. Research shows that older adults who engage with others and receive intellectual stimulation will stay healthy and at home longer. To… Read More

‘Narrow-Minded Destructive Logic’

Sadly, I was not at all surprised to read that Agudath Israel of America opposes the Child Victims Act, which would eliminate the statute of limitations for child sex abuse offenses. This narrow-minded and destructive logic has long been a dangerous and destructive force in so many Jewish communities. The statement from the Agudah that… Read More

Boos? What Boos?

In “Biden, Kerry Defend Administration’s Legacy at J Street Event” (April 22), the JT made the highly misleading statement that Biden “was booed at the AIPAC Policy Conference” in contrast to the applause he received at J Street. I attended the AIPAC Policy Conference and was present during the vice president’s speech. I heard no… Read More

Simply Put, Anti-Israel

The JT drastically understates the issue in “Blaming the ‘Liberal-Left’” (April 29). The self-described progressive wing of the Democratic Party in the U.S. and similar parties in Europe aren’t so much soft in their support for Israel as they are anti-Israel. You can see this on university campuses, at meet-and-greet events, at donor receptions. It… Read More

Voter Registration, Clarified

Voter Registration,  Clarified I would first like to commend the JT’s Marc Shapiro for capturing our accomplishments during the contentious 90-day legislative session in “Looking Back on the Maryland General Assembly” (April 22).  I would like to clarify what was written on the Universal Voter Registration Act. As originally introduced, the bill would have automatically… Read More

Misplaced Bravo

In a JT April 8 editorial, “Trump Stands by His Man,” you complement Donald Trump for standing by his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was arrested and charged with simple battery for grabbing a female reporter. You also gave him a “Bravo!” for standing by those loyal to him. In the same issue, you ran… Read More

An Innovative Man

The JT’s cover for April 1 prominently displayed the window of my late cousin’s pharmacy on exhibit at the Jewish Museum of Maryland and highlighted the story  inside, “Beyond Chicken Soup.” M. (Morris) L. Cooper was a maternal cousin of ours. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, my mother often took me to Cousin… Read More
