‘Wrong Choice’ for Inaugural Superfan

With ever-increasing agitation, I just finished reading Harry Glazer’s controversial article (if one can call it that) entitled “Spotlight on Ami Avraham” where Mr. Glazer has chosen Mr.

Bias on Display in Endorsements

As an avid reader of The Link, I was appalled to see a biased majority of articles supporting Democrats versus Republicans in last week’s edition. In the endorsement section you showed a Never Trumper making scathing remarks regarding our president. In addition, the paper contained several letters to the editor praising

We’ve Lost Our Way

This letter is most likely being read following the conclusion of a fraught and tense election cycle for the majority of Americans.

Following four years of intense political fighting, to which this country should no doubt be accustomed, there was something

Ad Has No Place in Paper

The full-page ad in this past week’s Link paid for by the Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee was disturbing and offensive. Given that the aforementioned organization is not officially Jewish, the message of the ad and specific phrases are particularly concerning.

The ad starts off with the header

Why Pallotta Is the Wrong Choice

I am quite puzzled by the seemingly strong support that Frank Pallotta, the GOP challenger to Congressman Josh Gottheimer for New Jersey’s 5th Congressional district, has received in the Orthodox community. Our community is dedicated to very definite and identifiable values which are informed by our belief in Torah and we live

Re-Elect Josh Gottheimer

Around the world, bigotry, anti-Semitism and hate crimes are on the rise. Just last year, we witnessed two tragic attacks close to home. On Election Day, it is critical that we elect leaders who will actively push back against hate of all kinds—candidates like Josh Gottheimer. Since being elected to Congress in 2016, Josh Gottheimer has

Where’s Waldo?

This is a couple weeks late, but my family and I just wanted to give you props for having the absolute nerve to make a Jewish “Where’s Waldo”-themed crossword puzzle, that appeared in the paper a couple weeks ago. That’s just so niche a subject for a specifically Jewish crossword puzzle, it was equally hilarious

Err on the Side of COVID-19 Caution

Since when is “above and beyond” a bad thing? I volunteer as Passaic County chair of a defense department activity, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. ESGR gives an “Above and Beyond” award to employers who have been especially helpful to their citizen soldiers.

New Jersey’s Tom Kean Is Running for Congress in NJ-7

There is something almost supernatural about election season. It is an exciting and electrifying time. Just look at the astounding TV viewership of the Amy Coney Barrett judiciary hearings to catch a glimpse of democracy in action and the spellbinding nature of the American way. Fox News dominated the cable news

Please Help Re-Elect Congressman Josh Gottheimer

In times of challenge, leaders show who they really are. The results speak for themselves: Josh Gottheimer is the leader North Jersey needs.

Since taking office nearly four years ago, Gottheimer has fought tirelessly on the issues that matter. As one of the most pro-Israel members of Congress, he has led

An Attitude of Gratitude

After reading the advertisement on page 16 of your last issue (October 1, 2020), we realized that not only did we disagree with the content but that we have a tremendous amount of hakarat hatov (gratitude) to our rabbinic leaders, our heads of school and our communal lay leadership. They are making decisions for us and
