LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

As CEO and owner of an Executive Search firm, The Joel Paul Group, I read with interest Y. Lieber’s article (7/17, p.69). I agree with all his advice to candidates writ­ing a résumé, except one.

I receive feedback from hiring manag­ers that the “Objective” section of a résumé is not needed. They view it as filler. Simply

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

We write in response to the letter from Rabbi Eisenman in last issue of the JLBC.

Dear Rabbi Ron Yitzchok Eisenman:

We understand that this horrific event puts us all at a loss for words.

Of course it is close to impossible to explain G-d’s action here.

However, there are several suggestions we might offer

May Their Memories Be a Blessing

Words seem meaningless this week, even as millions of words have been uttered in prayer and written in newspapers and on so­cial media, because there is nothing we can do or say to ease the pain of parents who lost their children in senseless acts of violence—par­ticularly when that violence has festered for so long. We can only continue to pray and hope that

To the Editor

With a heavy heart I can’t help but think of the following verse from this week’s Torah Portion – Balak:

“How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! As for me, O God abounding in grace, I enter your house to worship with awe in Your sacred place. To You, Eternal One, goes my prayer: may this be a time of

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

Since the June 12 kidnapping of three Israeli students in the West Bank by Hamas, the world’s press seems to be complying with a total gag order on the story.  Now that Palestinians are affronted by Israel’s search methods, that is what is being covered.  But what is overlooked, again, is the lack of moral equivalency between the

To the Editor:

I just wanted to thank you for the arti­cle in the Jewish Link (Cover article – May 15 “Team Zeidel Rallies Community for ALS Research”) about our family’s efforts to raise money for the ALS Association. The article was beautifully written and we re­ceived so much positive feedback from it! Also, it helped us spread the word about the

An Open Letter to the Government Representatives of the People of New Jersey

Dear Honored County, State and Feder­al Leaders:

I write you today as a Councilmember representing the Township of Teaneck, a multi-cultural diverse community of close to 40,000 residents. Many of you are famil­iar with Teaneck and I have had the hon­or of meeting you either here in my home­town or in your offices.

Teaneck is a town that has

Knee-Jerk Reactions Do Not Help Us

According to Webster’s a knee-jerk reaction is an immediate unthinking emotional reaction produced by an event or statement to which the reacting person is highly sensitive; in persons with strong feelings on a topic, it may be very predictable. And it’s not a new term, either. It’s been in use, in its current context, since the 10 thcentury. After

To the Editor:

While I appreciate Mr. [sic] Chanes at­tempt at categorizing different groups within the Jewish World, I find it slightly disingenuous. While quick to sort the Or­thodox Jewish population into neat sec­tions, he swiftly takes the title of “Mod­ern” away from those who he deems “Centrist,” yet who outside of his Op-Ed identify as

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

Thank you so much for your article and editorial on Moriah’s new tuition affordability program (TAP).  Since announcing it publicly last week, we have received comments, suggestions and even some critical feedback.  Our favorite conversations have been with the families who have simply said, “Thank you.  It is about time a school began to

Letters TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

I read with great interest the op-ed piece by Rabbi Steven Pruzansky entitled the “Spinning Wheel,” which cast aspersions on Rabbi Avi Weiss, founder of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and rabbi of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale. The claims made by Rabbi Pruzansky in the piece cannot go without a response as they are misleading and false. [For

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to express all of the emotions we as Temple Emeth parents have been experiencing this past week.

We view ourselves as our own community, or even a family. With two children in Temple Emeth, I have forged extremely strong relationships with other parents as well as staff. The expression “It takes a
