We Can Help Keep Pro-Israel Democrats in Office

Lately, I’ve noticed frequent chatter on the internet talking of organizing a muscular primary challenge to Rep. Gottheimer. This is part of the radical (“progressive”) left’s goal of purging moderates, especially those who are pro-Israel, from the Democratic Party. I am a registered Republican but will be

Jackie Mason, Remembered

When I saw Jackie Mason in July 2019, the last words I said to him were, “Jackie, you made a lot of people laugh for a lot of years. That was very important.”

In retrospect, that could serve as his epitaph. He was a one of a kind and will be sorely missed.

We Must Make Our Voices Heard

On Thursday, August 5, I attended the Clifton board of education meeting, intending to answer the anti-Israel remarks by two of their commissioners, Mr. Awwad and Mr. Abedrabbo.

I was very disappointed to see that there were only three individuals willing to

Correction on Black Box

I was happy to see such a lovely article in last week’s Jewish Link detailing the amazing birthday surprise for Dr. David A. Zomick (“David Zomick Marks 80th With Special ‘Megilla’,” August 5, 2021). I noticed, however, that Black Box PAC was accidentally referred to as Black Box Theater.

Rabbi Adler, Master Teacher

The article “Rinat Honors R’ Adler’s Legacy” (August 5, 2021) mentions numerous ways in which Rabbi Adler has had an enormous impact on Teaneck generally and Congregation Rinat Yisrael in particular. I would just like to add one point in connection with Rabbi Adler’s teaching.

Thank You, Rabbi Adler

Our family joined the Rinat community when we moved to Teaneck as I began ninth grade at TABC in 1994, and it has been inspiring to witness the shul’s steady growth over the past quarter century as it has maintained its core values as outlined in Harry Glazer’s piece and the accompanying interview with Rabbi Adler

Black Box PAC Is Bringing Theater Back

“All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.” When Shakespeare wrote these words over 400 years ago I’m sure he could not have imagined they would be performed on an outdoor stage in a part of the “new world” known as Bergen County, in the year 2021.

After many, many

Is the Universe 13.8 Billion Years Old or 5782 Years Old?

Now that we are approaching Elul and the Yomim Noraim period, we start thinking about Rosh Hashanah and the new year of 5782. It is a good time to consider what this really means. In the Hebrew calendar this represents the time since creation in Bereishit. However, scientists begin their counting of the age of the universe from the “Big

A View From Englewood's Ben & Jerry's Storefront

This summer I had the unique opportunity to work in the Ben & Jerry’s store in Englewood. A chance to work somewhere unlike any other place I had ever worked or probably ever will work again. A fun summer job.

It was an interesting experience on many levels. I was the first Jew that most of my

Kof-K Statement Regarding Ben & Jerry’s

Although Ben & Jerry’s and its parent company Unilever announced that they will not be leaving Israel, the  KOF-K is quite concerned about Ben & Jerry’s decision not to sell to Yehuda and Shomron as of January 1, 2023. Unilever has committed that the company will adhere to their contract. The KOF-K has been in contact with

A Letter to Ben, Jerry and the Board of Unilever

Under the terms and conditions of Unilever’s purchase of Ben & Jerry’s, it was determined that the board of the ice cream manufacturer should remain semi-autonomous, but nowhere does it say in that agreement that they have license to play petty politics and in so doing severely damage your brand image and

Israel Supporters Should Not Support Ben & Jerry’s

It’s no secret that “Ben” Cohen & “Jerry” Greenfield are wealthy Jewish ultra-progressives. When they sold their iconic ice cream public company in 2000 for $326 million to Unilever, the caveat was that the “social justice” mission of Ben & Jerry’s would continue to be run by an autonomous board of
