Like so many others contemplating during these solemn days, as Moshe Kinderlehrer did in his article “A Pre-Rosh Hashanah Reflection” (September 22), I confess that I can’t envision what shamayim or Olom Haba look like. I doubt it is everyone dressed in white robes playing the harp or flying around on white wings, as commonly
I read, with great enjoyment, Rabbi Howard Jachter’s essay, “A Post-Wedding Expression of Hakarat HaTov for Yeshiva College” (September 15, 2022), wherein he, among other things, extended his gratitude and HaKaras Hatov to Yeshiva University.
I, myself, am a three-time alumnus of Yeshiva University. My years as
I want to offer a few counterpoints to Rabbi Yair Hoffman’s column about how to support single parents, especially divorcees (“This Rosh Hashanah, Let’s Think of the Invisible Among Us” September 15, 2022). While the author offers some sound advice, he occasionally crosses a line from encouraging us to be good friends and neighbors to being
Regarding Ruby Kaplan’s letter to the editor, “Munich 11 a Continuing Concern for All,”
(September 15, 2022). Ms. Kaplan questions why “the 1972 Olympics was even held and approved to take place in Munich…. only 30 years after a most horrific
I’d like to respectfully disagree with the “Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee Letter Regarding FBI Raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Home” (September 8, 2022). They characterized the legal search of Donald Trump’s beach club and resort as “an invasion,” “egregious raid” and a “break-in.” In reality, it was a legally approved and executed
As a follow-up and in support of Rabbi Dr. Wallace Greene’s important article “Louder Isn’t Always Better” (September 15, 2022), I offer the following anecdote. In 1960, while I was in pharmaceutical sales, one of my clients was an elderly Italian ear, nose and throat specialist, located on Manhattan’s Upper
Thank you for your extensive coverage in the September 15 edition of The Jewish Link, of the New York Board of Education choosing to regulate the yeshiva system. As your editorial (“Why the New York Times Hit Piece and Subsequent Regents Decision Matters to All Jews”) states, this decision matters to all Jews, even
In response to the letter from David Hes, “The Gottheimer Myth” (September 15, 2022): If you’re choosing your congressperson based on any number of domestic or local issues, then I guess you’ll vote for your preferred party’s agenda, whether it’s the Republican or Democratic candidate. However, if the security
Along with much of the rest of the Orthodox community, the editorial board of The Jewish Link strongly criticized what it referred to as “The New York Times Hit Piece” in last week’s edition (September 15, 2022, “Why The New York Times Hit Piece and Subsequent Regents Decision Matters to All Jews”). However, there are important
If you know of someone who is homebound in Teaneck/Bergenfield who would like to hear shofar blowing on Rosh Hashanah, please let us know at (201) 357-8642 and we will do our best to have a volunteer come to their home.Pinhas Friedenberg
I am disappointed by the language in a letter from the Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee in the Sept. 8 edition of the Jewish Link (“Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee Letter Regarding FBI Raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Home”). While I am always pleased to see citizens take an interest in communal
Regarding “Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee Letter Regarding FBI Raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Home” (Sept. 8, 2022), former President Donald Trump took documents from the White House that did not belong to him. They belong to the federal government. Another word for that is stealing.
