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
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
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
Earlier this week, I wrote a letter to the editor in which I said, “In response to the Kof-K quote (“Ben & Jerry's New Flavor: BDS,” July 22, 2021): ‘still preparing a response, which they would have in the next several days,’ their response should be simple and not take any more time. Remove the Kof-K
A letter to the editor in The Jewish Link issue of July 22, “Setting the Record Straight on Israel,” chastised those Jews who believe Israel is an apartheid state. Fair enough. However, the concluding paragraph of the letter contains seriously misguided and possibly inflammatory ideas. The paragraph stated that it was
I read Sandy Eller’s article (“Heart to Haart: Orthodox Women Strike Back at Netflix Miniseries #ThisIsOrthodox” July 22, 2021) in The Jewish Link about the Netflix series, “My Unorthodox Life.” I and my 26 year old daughter are ba’alot teshuva for 18 years.
Every Jew, and friends of Israel, must immediately stop buying Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. They have written that Israel’s actions are “inconsistent with its values.”

The last issue of The Jewish Link (July 15, 2021) had a few unrelated items that caught my eye (“Poll: 25% of American Jewish Voters believe Israel Is an Apartheid State,” “Analysis Falls Short,” to mention only the first two). These items came on the eve of the fast of Tisha B’Av.
Max Wisotsky’s latest missive (“Practical as Well as Spiritual Torah Teachings Are Timeless” July 15, 2021) invites us to join him in the reality-distortion field. Under the guise of praising Torah values, he states that observant Jews are less affected by COVID. This flies in the face of the facts. The Jewish
I am a Holocaust survivor, and could not agree more with Rabbi Moshe Taragin in his article “Tisha B’Av and the 20th Century” (July 15, 2021). Rabbi Taragin perfectly expresses that nothing can “begin to compare to the Holocaust in scope and intensity.” There is no event in our history that can parallel to the
How can Torah be compared to fire (“ki ner mitzvah v’Torah ohr”) and water (“ poter mayim reishit madon”), as these two elements can’t be mixed together? Though it’s true that the fire of barad existed within the water, that was an exception where the fire and water made shalom to carry out
I would like to thank Paul Herman for his letter in the July 15, 2021 issue of The Jewish Link (“Analysis Falls Short”) addressing my article “Did the Arabs Steal Arab Land.” In this and another article, “The Truth About Arab Sales to Jews in Palestine,” which is yet to be published, I sought to make the case
