Trump: Baal Shem Ra

I heartily applaud and echo the Feb. 17 Your Say letters of Buddy Sapolsky (“Respect for Others”) and Howard Kahn (“Surviving Trump”). Both, however, lacked any conspicuous Jewish — let alone Judaic — optic to their criticism of America’s Tweeter-in-Chief, a glaring omission in a Jewish communal publication. I am delighted to remedy that lacuna…. Read More

H. Klaff and Co. Deserves Recognition

As members of the Hettleman family, we enjoyed reading about our family history in the JT’s Feb. 3 cover story “More Than Junk … It’s Scrap!” However, we discovered a glaring and significant omission in the article. The fact is, no article about the history of the scrap industry in Baltimore can be complete without… Read More

Surviving Trump

I am ashamed and disappointed for my country electing a depraved sociopath as our president (“The Great Divide,” Feb. 10). I pray for my country that we survive his reckless narcissist temperament in a volatile world. I know the election is over, but we and the press have to keep the protests going and hopefully… Read More

More Than Just ‘Mere’

“The Great Divide” cover story (Feb. 10) characterizes Ruth Goetz as a mere “registered  Republican.” In point of fact, she is a Maryland GOP state  official, being a member of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee, representing District 2. A huge (quoting Goetz’s godol) difference.

Respect for Others

Several weeks ago, I was having one of those great conversations with my son, daughter-in-law and 11-year-old grandson. We covered a range of subjects including sports, movies, the state of the world and, of course, politics. It was one of those special moments for me, realizing that everyone was capable of carrying on such an… Read More

Fight the Threat

Regarding “Give Trump a Chance” (Jan. 27),  I realize that Z. Lois Madow wrote the Your Say letter soon after the presidential inauguration. I hope by now that Madow has seen enough of what a Trump presidency is like and is truly horrified about what is happening in our country. We have many people (immigrants… Read More

Dirty Business

Regarding “Seasons Next Season?” (Feb. 3), it should be noted that for close to three years, the store’s owners have poked the community in the eye by their inconsiderate allowance of the debris that continues to clutter their frontage. Given that everyone knows that it is, or will be, a kosher establishment, it is an… Read More

A Whale of a Tale

Thank you for “Hebrews on the High Seas,” Jan. 27. This fascinating article brought  together many bits of information that I was aware of with some fascinating new facts. This is one of the best JT articles I’ve ever read. Kudos!

Step Up for Jewish Students

The BDS movement is exploding on college campuses for many reasons (“Fighting BDS on America’s Campuses,” Jan. 20). Colleges have become hotbeds of left-wing radicalism, and the current cause celebre is supporting the Palestinians and Hamas, one of the most vicious Islamic terrorist organizations. Even the prior administration had to brand Hamas a terrorist organization…. Read More

Half In, Half Out

To the powers that be at the Woodmont Country Club. I think I have a solution to your conundrum (“Woodmont Not Playing Its ‘A’ Game,” Jan. 20). Since Barack Obama is biracial, you can do the politically correct thing and accept that half of him that is black for membership; as to the part of… Read More
