Proudly Secular and Jewish

We were delighted to see the oped by Jacques Berlinerblau (“Untangling an Oxymoron: The Secular Jew,” September 14).Read More


Honoring the Fallen

Thank you for honoring the contributions and sacrifices of Jewish men and women who serve in the American military, as you did in your piece on those who have lost their lives in service to the United States (“Profiles of the Fallen,” September 14).Read More


Our Economic Reality

Noam Neusner’s effort to make Mitt Romney a greater champion of tikkun olam than Barack Obama (“Making the Jewish Case for Mitt Romney,” September 7) and therefore more worthy of Jewish support reminds me of what Davy Crockett is supposed to have said about the rhetoric of a political opponent: “It don’t even make good nonsense.”Read More


Arts and Culture?

I have pondered, long and hard, this locution, used by our paper since the beginning of time to identify the arts pages — at least “time” as reckoned by readers of our paper. (As one of the Forward’s first reviewers, I go back to those early years.)Read More


Not Just a School

More Ways To Adapt

I just wanted to take a moment to share my appreciation for your June 8 article on the JCC program for people with Aspergers, “From Awkward to In Love.”Read More


The Communal Agenda

The September 7 story on the Jewish Federations’ Global Planning Table, (“Internal Gridlock Stalls Federation Giving Reform”), features a provocative headline but misses the real story of this ambitious initiative.Read More


In the Gutter

I am saddened to see such an esteemed voice of Jewish culture and values promoting pornography and extolling the virtues of pole dancing for observant Jewish women! I would have considered either of these online articles an aberration, but two in the same week constitutes a trend. The blog post “My First (Jewish) Porno” (August 24) is a breathy fan letter to the Jewish hard-core porn star James Deen.Read More


Collaborating

Darren Kleinberg and Jerry Hirsch are right on the money about start-up/establishment collaborations (“Collaboration Holds the Key,” August 24). Today, the Joint Distribution Committee and Moishe House are doing this on a global scale.Read More
