Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

After decades of lethal attacks on our fellow Jews, someone has finally spoken out and shouted “enough!” In essence, he issues a wake-up call to all of us that we need to start considering stronger measures that might serve to deter our enemies and save Jewish lives.

To the Editor:

The Jewish Link, in two recent interviews with Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, allowed his direct criticisms of me by name to be published without the basic journalistic or ethical courtesy of seeking a response.

The latest, in your Nov. 27 issue, directly follows his observation that the

To the Editor:

We as supporters of Israel and Jews have long complained about incitement by Palestinian and Muslim leaders and have often criticized the general worldwide Islamic leadership for not speaking out against these provocations. We cite references to Jews being “sons of monkeys and pigs” by Palestinian and Muslim leaders as examples of the

Yesterday, at about 7 a.m., my daughter Miri called. “Mordechai just came home from shul. He said that Arabs came in and are shooting, and that a man with an axe is hitting everyone. Some of the people threw chairs at them, but it didn’t help.” The 12-year-old had hit the floor along

To the Editor:

Jeanette Friedman’s Op-Ed suggesting that perhaps Avraham failed his “test” with Yitzhak raises the question but omits the answer. Avraham had to cut off all ties with his past to follow God (the first lekh lecha) and then he is asked to cut off all ties to his future (the second lekh lecha) by offering his son up as a sacrifice, or at

Thank you Jewish Link of Bergen County!!! In regard to your coverage of Congressman Scott Garrett (10/30/14 issue) who is running to keep his seat this election day, you did not disappoint me; you are being fair and giving equal opportunities for both sides to present themselves. I almost can’t believe it. You can’t imagine how frustrating it

In Support of Cong. Garrett

As a constituent of the 5th congressional district of New Jersey, I am very proud of my congressman, Scott Garrett. Not only does he represent the conservative values for which I stand, but he brings years of leadership and experience on so many issues of particular concern to the Jewish

Thank you for coverage of the dedication of the Alisa wing at RYNJ. However, the otherwise fine reporting neglected to indicate clearly that the dedication was the brainchild of and carried out by our children, Francine and Adam Mermelstein. While Rosalyn and I are schepping nachat about

As the student co-President of JLIC Toronto, I think it’s time I got involved in this conversation. I didn’t want to, but after reading the article “Torah for Men, Challah for Women,” published on September 24th, I’ve realized that this has to be addressed. I’ve spent a lot of

To the Editor:

In an effort to deflect the actual issues regarding metzitza bipeh, lawyer Akiva Shapiro (letters, September 25) accuses me of rendering, in an earlier letter, a medical opinion of my own. What I in fact did was to cite, by name and credentials, medical experts who happen to disagree with Mr. Shapiro’s clients, and who, after reviewing

Several people have asked about where to find shoe repairs with the closure of Manor Shoes.

I am happy to report that Manor Shoes is re-opened for repairs at a new location; 445 Cedar Lane, directly across the street from Maadan.

Be sure to look at the store doors, and not the awnings, as the awning from the previous tenant has

Thank you for printing the front page article “Could Foreigners Who served in Israeli Army Face War Crimes Charges?” By Barak Ravid in your August 25 issue. The article quoted a letter written by Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki concerning prosecuting foreign volunteers for the IDF for war crimes. Perhaps you would be so kind as to
