LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to express all of the emotions we as Temple Emeth parents have been experiencing this past week.

We view ourselves as our own community, or even a family. With two children in Temple Emeth, I have forged extremely strong relationships with other parents as well as staff. The expression “It takes a

I was disappointed by the exaggerated coverage in the Jewish Link of Rabbi Yechiel Abuchatzeira’s upcoming appearance at a charity event in Teaneck, including a feature article (“Rabbi Yechiel Abuchatzeira Visiting Teaneck Next Thursday,” May 15), a full page ad, and a front-page photo.

Rabbi Abuchatzeira is

To the Editor:

The characterization of the Rabbinical Council of America as a Modern Orthodox organization respected by the haredi community is incorrect on two counts. First, the Rabbinical Council of America has never declared itself any particular “brand” of Orthodox. Some of it members define themselves as Modern Orthodox, some define

The following letter was sent to the Chief Rabbis of Israel by the President, past presidents and the executive committee of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, where Rabbi Avi Weiss has been the manhig ruchani for 41 years.

As the lay leadership of an Orthodox synagogue that serves several hundred families under the spiritual guidance of Rabbi Avraham

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor,

Thank you very much for your article about last week’s Yom Haatzmaut celebration in Teaneck.  We would like to add our thanks to the many people who helped plan and work on the event.  Most importantly, we would like to reiterate our gratitude to the children of our community who have decided to serve Israel in so many different ways - in

To the Editor:

When I read the headline “The Bad Playdate,” by Sarah Abenaim, I assumed the article would be about a child’s friend who was chutzpadik, exhibited other bad middos, or was a bad influence in some way. Much to my surprise, I read that the reasons this was a bad playdate were because the writer’s child and her friend did not have very much

To the Editor:

How ironic that last week’s front page article entitled, ‘The Iran Deal: On the Record and Analysis’ begins with a quote by the late British PM Winston Churchill endorsing the notion of negotiations with adversaries in which he stated, “To Jaw- Jaw is always better than to War-War.” Following his declared rejection of the 1938 Munich

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

There is one long-serving member of the Teaneck Council that I wish to single out in urging you to re-elect an effective leadership team on May 13. That is Yitz Stern. I have great faith that Yitz will be overwhelmingly re-elected because Teaneckers in every corner of town know that he has been there for them over much of the past two decades.

To the Editor:

I look forward to reading Robert Katz’s column; his most recent, “Dear God, Thanks, But No Thanks,” 11/14/13. Although he may not be announcing at major league sports events, there is one “Me’achorei HaPargod” that he did not mention, a broadcast dream that he is living. In addition to his professional communal work

To the Editor:

I recently attended a Chamber of Commerce awards dinner, at the Glenpointe Marriot Hotel in Teaneck, New Jersey.

As I walked into the lobby with my associate Bruce Prince, the owner of Teaneck General Store, a friendly man named Edwin Ramos introduced himself as the owner of Farmer’s Insurance Agency, also in Teaneck.

As we

To the Editor:

An open letter to the our rabbis and our community:

There has been much dialogue this past week about the appropriateness of Teaneck community rabbis submitting requests for leniency on behalf of a community youth leader who admitted to committing abusive acts towards children. This dialogue is important and healthy, and broaches

Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

When I first began receiving the Jewish Link, my assumption was that the paper was published from the point of view that Torah is paramount and Halachah is followed. The advertisers, who support the paper - yeshivot, kosher stores, the Orthodox Union - clearly presuppose an Orthodox audience.

After reading the last few issues,
