Hillary? No Way

After Barack Obama, the worst president we have ever had, why would we want Hillary Clinton (“Poll of the Week,” April 17)? She is not for Israel in any way. We cannot be that stupid again. I never voted for Obama. He has run this county into the ground, and there’s no reason not to… Read More

Making a Difference

The haftarah reading for this week’s parshah is about four lepers who were rejected from the Israelite city that they lived in.

A-Plus for Israel

Editor-in-Chief

All too often, the news coming out of the Holy Land isn’t good. If it isn’t war, it seems, it’s terrorism.
