Although the cover story “Being Senior” (April 19) addressed several facets of this topic, one important side was omitted. Upon reading the article, one might get the impression that living at Levindale’s new state-of-the-art residential quarters is a wonderful way to live out one’s rem-aining years. If a person is extremely wealthy and is able… Read More
Congratulations to Patsy Taubman and her wonderful committee on an outstanding 25th anniversary Jewish Film Festival (“Jewish Film Festival Opens With Glimpse Of ‘The Simpsons,’” March 28). We received our subscriptions as a gift, and we were captivated by every film we viewed. Each guest speaker was engaging and knowledgeable.
Regarding the article, “Happy Anni-versary, Eddie’s” (April 12): In 1991, my wife, Fran, discovered Eddie’s of Roland Park soon after we moved into our Colonnade condo on University Parkway. For nine years, Eddie’s was our go-to source for many of the wonderful goodies they “dished out” on a daily basis. Each year, they would deliver… Read More
There are several points in Ben Sales’ article “Kotel Compromise notwithstanding, Israel facing uphill battle over pluralism” (online only, April 19) that require further comment. Regarding Women of the Wall, the Israeli Supreme Court years back heard the arguments for pluralism and ruled that the section of the Western Wall known as Robinson’s Arch should… Read More
Thank you for running the informative article on BGE trying to replace all of our electric meters with smart meters (“Smart Meters: Dumb Choice,” April 12). These are being installed in every house, apartment, office, school, library and hospital in Baltimore.
Highlighting the April 5 edition of the JT dedicated to Yom Ha’Shoah 5773 was the editorial “Yom Ha’Shoah’s Necessary Story.” It emphasized the importance of “remember[ing] the horrors of the Holocaust and its threat to the survival of the Jewish people” and the need “to honor the memory of those who perished.”
I would be remiss if I didn’t make some comments about Del. Jon Cardin’s grandiose claim to be someone who wants to bring about campaign reform to our political process (“The Year of Campaign Reform,” Jan. 11). What Mr. Cardin didn’t tell you is the amount of contribution money he and his associates, Sen. Bobby… Read More
… In all the articles about CHAI, as well as the accomplishments of past Executive Director Ken Gelula (“Life of CHAI, Dec. 28), nothing was mentioned about the Weatherization Program that CHAI has been offering for the past three years. In today’s world, it is so important not only to save money where possible, but… Read More
Upon reading and reviewing the photos accompanying your timely and enlightening piece “Sandy Hook Fallout,” (Jan. 11), I was stunned to notice three women smiling and laughing at the scene unfolding in front of them. I remain at a loss to discern what they find so funny about soldier [Tzviel] Blankchtein demonstrating his self-defense strategy…. Read More
The reaction of far-right American Jews to Chuck Hagel’s nomination as defense secretary (“Jury Out On Hagel,” Jan. 18) was hysterical and shameful. On most Israeli Internet news sites thousands of comments are posted every week accusing anyone who does not agree with the Netanyahu government of being an anti-Semite and any Jew who voted… Read More
