  • Arab-Israeli Ties: Hostage No More?

    By jwadmin on May 19, 2017
    The reality is changing faster than “expert” preconceptions. Evelyn Gordon Commentary Magazine On any other day, the Wall Street Journal’s report on Tuesday would have been a major bombshell. Instead, it was unjustly overshadowed by the news that Donald Trump had shared sensitive third-party intelligence (apparently provided by Israel) with Russia. Granted, the intelligence story reveals something important about the […]

  • Misplacing items, but holding on to the important stuff— Marilyn is no Sherlock Holmes

    By jwadmin on May 17, 2017
    Mostly it is loss, which teaches us about the worth of things—Schopenhauer By MARILYN SHAPIRO I have spent half of my life looking for things I’ve misplaced. I have spent the other half finding things for Larry, my husband, which he claims that I lost to make his life more difficult. Recently I was visiting my daughter Julie, her husband Sam, […]

  • JW’s 50th edition brings back memories!

    By jwadmin on May 17, 2017
    Editor: The 50th anniversary edition is incredible. It brought back many memories. I had the pleasure of teaching for Shraga Arian, OBM, at the Hebrew Academy. He was simply irreplaceable. To see his antics during Shabbat lunch at the school and to observe his educational approaches made one strive to become the best educator one could be. Thinking outside the […]

  • Genocide of Jews particular to the Holocaust; others suffered too during same time period

    By jwadmin on May 17, 2017
    Editor: Bob Scher’s letter ‘All humanity suffered during the Holocaust’ (JW 4/27) does violent disservice to the concept and indeed to the very word itself by applying it to “all humanity.” Of course all humanity suffered during the time the Holocaust occurred. Scher is at pains to attack an article about an ‘inflated count of non-Jewish victims of Nazi Germany’. […]

  • No holds barred: A Chabad rabbi apologizes for meeting the pope

    By jwadmin on May 16, 2017
    By: Rabbi Shmuley Boteach The Jerusalem Post Twenty-three years ago, I was forced to resign as Chabad rabbi to the Jewish students at Oxford University. The reason: I had some 5,000 non-Jewish student members of our organization, the Oxford University L’Chaim Society, a fact brought into stark relief through the presidency of an African-American Christian student from New Jersey named […]

  • My lesson in free speech: As a Jew, meeting with Holocaust deniers actually left me feeling empowered

    By jwadmin on May 10, 2017
    By Mark Oppenheimer LA Times – In 2009, I interviewed Mark Weber and Bradley Smith, two amateur historians notorious for being among the leading Holocaust “revisionists.” Smith is an old-school denier, dubious about the existence of gas chambers, while Weber merely believes that Jews exaggerate history to help consolidate Zionist power. I interviewed Weber in his offices outside Los Angeles, and […]

  • To The Editor

    By jwadmin on April 28, 2017
    Editor: In your April 13 edition there is an article by Ron Kampeas decrying, what he calls the inflated count of non-Jewish victims, as another Holocaust Big Lie. He goes on to say that an estimate of 5 million non-Jews murdered by the Nazis   “ …is however, a number without any scholarly basis,” and ascribes it to being a made […]
