Arkan http://jewishtimes.com/37006/are-you-kidding-me/#comment-21369 Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 +0000 http://jewishtimes.com/?p=37006#comment-21369 Mr. Trost upbraids Chabad-Lubavitch for meeting with President Obama, whom he asserts “dislikes Israel.” As Rachmiel Gottlieb has documented in these pages (JT (July 2, 2014, “Upon Further Review,” and parallel in the Washington Jewish Week, “Data Omitted,” July 31)), the Rebbe himself was no big fan of the State of Israel, even forbidding his followers from singing the Israeli national anthem; and unlike many observant Jews, he is not buried on its holy soil. It is also telling that among the numerous photographs accompanying the cover story about Baltimore’s Cheder- Chabad (“Continuing the Legacy”) neither a flag nor map nor any other tangible signifier of the existence of the modern State of Israel is anywhere in sight.

Comment on Free Speech on Z Street by S. Arkan http://jewishtimes.com/36988/free-speech-on-z-street/#comment-21368 Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 +0000 http://jewishtimes.com/?p=36988#comment-21368 Regarding this editorial : Get real! Z Street is a sock-puppet of the Zionist Organization of America and its deceitful (JT Your say, Nov. 6, 2014 , “ZOA… should apologize”) head Morton Klein, an individual who could give management tips on command-and-control techniques to the DPRK. Why does Z Street need tax-exempt status, anyway- i.e., a subsidy courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers? After all, the ZOA is largely funded from the bottomless coffers of billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

I am a cousin, through Nathan’s father, Aron the Cohen (Lisse from Russia and Philadelphia).
When and if you are able, I would like to communicate with you about your family roots. I am a retired MD, just doing a family history for the grandchildren. I would like your input. I contacted Owen and have spoken to him recently, but I would like to know you better too.
Be well,
Deborah Ruth Liss from Philadelphia.

Comment on Free-Range by Rad http://jewishtimes.com/36553/free-range/#comment-21359 Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 +0000 http://jewishtimes.com/?p=36553#comment-21359 There are plenty of ways to teach kids responsibility without letting them walk alone on city streets. Besides the risk of abduction, there are lots of other risks, like crossing a street and getting hit by a car. I’ve certainly had to restrain my kids from stepping into a busy street. Learning by experience in this case can be deadly, ruining a kid’s life and the life of a driver who might hit the child.

There are so many “issues” in this world. We don’t really need a pseudo issue like free ranging children created. Parents, parent your kids. What these parents did is simply irresponsible, no matter how nice and reasonable they otherwise seem.
