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

To the Editor:

Thank you so much for your high-quality publication.

In October 1943 my great grandfather, Rabbi Eliezer Poupko, marched with R’ Moshe Feinstein, Rabbi Eliezer Silver and 400 other rabbis to the White House to ask President Roosevelt to do more to help European Jews who were being massacred by the Nazis.

Today, like then, the Iranians are threatening to destroy the Jewish people with their nuclear weapons program. While we pray to Hashem to help save us from this devastation, it is important that we all do our hishtadlut to help stop this devastation. From following the American political systems closely I can say one thing is definite—your representatives care about what you think—especially if they know voting the wrong way may cost them their seat; calling the office of your Senators and Congressmen makes a major difference!

Call your representatives today and let them know you care.

Call Senator Cory Booker (202-224-3224), who does not oppose this deal yet, and tell him to vote against this deal. Look up your local congressmen and tell them to stop a bad Iran deal!

May the zchut of our teffilot and hishtadlut help protect Klal Yisroel wherever they are at all times.

Sincerely,

Rabbi Elchanan Poupko

 

To the Editor:

Kudos to all at the Jewish Link. The paper is a joy to read, whether or not I agree with every position taken by a contributor or a columnist. I even like the ads (where else is the reader told what aisle the specials are in?).

But my favorite weekly reading is Banji Latkin Ganchrow’s family column. She is the Erma Bombeck (remember her?) not only for the modern age, but for those of us whose children are grown and raising their own children! (And by no means only for Jews—a wide audience will relate to her tales!)

Banji, I hope you are preserving your columns and planning to present them in a book. I’m looking forward to its publication!
