While reading Melissa Davis’ article, “Looking Back” (April 19), I thought she was writing about me. I, too, was in BBYO when in school and made many friends. … I, too, was the president of my B’nai B’rith Girls group called Balmap. When I finished school, the adult group requested me to join. [Soon after],… Read More
I want to applaud your recent issue on topics related to the older members of our community (“Being Senior,” April 19). The “age wave” of older adults is increasing in the Baltimore area, and the members of that age group are, and will continue to be, in need of a variety of services, options and… Read More

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).

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.
