Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Having your say in The Link!

Featuring Peter Tilem

On Parshat Vayetze:

Lavan made Yaacov work 7 years for Rachel and then switched the sisters and gave him Leah. Then he made him work another 7 years for Rachel, then another 7 years for some sheep. I am not an employment lawyer but wasn’t anyone enforcing the Fair Labor Standards Act back then?

On making Aliya: 

As a Second Amendment lawyer, I will be much happier after Israel gets its own Second Amendment.

On being a criminal defense lawyer: 

When someone is facing a prison sentence, you have to work hard, get creative and be better than the other guy; especially when your client is guilty.

On politicians: 

Why would someone spend millions of their own money to get a job that pays $150,000?

On Torah and truth:

Without Torah there is no objective understanding of right and wrong, truth and falsehood.


On keeping your mouth shut: 

“Better to remain silent and thought the fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”, Abraham Lincoln

How to deal with a ticket when stopped by police: 

Take the ticket and KEEP MY NUMBER ON SPEED DIAL!  See also, “On Keeping Your Mouth Shut”

On romance: 

Is there a better feeling than giving the woman you love flowers?  Or sharing a bottle of wine?
