LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor,

Thank you very much for your article about last week’s Yom Haatzmaut celebration in Teaneck.  We would like to add our thanks to the many people who helped plan and work on the event.  Most importantly, we would like to reiterate our gratitude to the children of our community who have decided to serve Israel in so many different ways - in

When I read the headline “The Bad Playdate,” by Sarah Abenaim, I assumed the article would be about a child’s friend who was chutzpadik, exhibited other bad middos, or was a bad influence in some way. Much to my surprise, I read that the reasons this was a bad playdate were because the writer’s child and her friend did not have very much

How ironic that last week’s front page article entitled, ‘The Iran Deal: On the Record and Analysis’ begins with a quote by the late British PM Winston Churchill endorsing the notion of negotiations with adversaries in which he stated, “To Jaw- Jaw is always better than to War-War.” Following his declared rejection of the 1938 Munich

To the Editor:

There is one long-serving member of the Teaneck Council that I wish to single out in urging you to re-elect an effective leadership team on May 13. That is Yitz Stern. I have great faith that Yitz will be overwhelmingly re-elected because Teaneckers in every corner of town know that he has been there for them over much of the past two decades.

I look forward to reading Robert Katz’s column; his most recent, “Dear God, Thanks, But No Thanks,” 11/14/13. Although he may not be announcing at major league sports events, there is one “Me’achorei HaPargod” that he did not mention, a broadcast dream that he is living. In addition to his professional communal work

To the Editor:

I recently attended a Chamber of Commerce awards dinner, at the Glenpointe Marriot Hotel in Teaneck, New Jersey.

As I walked into the lobby with my associate Bruce Prince, the owner of Teaneck General Store, a friendly man named Edwin Ramos introduced himself as the owner of Farmer’s Insurance Agency, also in Teaneck.

As we

An open letter to the our rabbis and our community:

There has been much dialogue this past week about the appropriateness of Teaneck community rabbis submitting requests for leniency on behalf of a community youth leader who admitted to committing abusive acts towards children. This dialogue is important and healthy, and broaches

To the Editor:

When I first began receiving the Jewish Link, my assumption was that the paper was published from the point of view that Torah is paramount and Halachah is followed. The advertisers, who support the paper - yeshivot, kosher stores, the Orthodox Union - clearly presuppose an Orthodox audience.

After reading the last few issues,

To the Editor:

In your recent interview, Josh Levy claims that crime rates would go down if more people had guns. This is very speculative. If more people had guns, then in altercations between people, guns would be used more often, leading to many deaths, including gun accidents.

The real reason we have to live with high crime rates is the failed

To the Editor:

Those who wrote the legislation about the haredi draft made every mistake in the book. They should have used halachic sources as well as utilizing the data language used by the haredim: rewarding excellence in learning and penalizing mediocrity.

I teach at the Hebrew University Faculty of Medicine and I also am the executive secretary of

To the Editor:

In an article published here on March 13, “Modern Orthodoxy’s Identity Crisis”, Amram Altzman laments that, unfortunately, not enough change is taking place in the Modern Orthodox world. Times are changing and so should we and our approach to Orthodox Judaism. This is especially regrettable in that which, he claims, is taking place at

To the Editor:

In your article, “Rep. Bill Pascrell Invites the Editors,” (August 22, 2013) you state that Congressman Scott Garrett “voted against FEMA funding for Bergen residents.” However, Scott Garrett did vote for H.R. 152 - Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill, for a cost of $50.7 Billion, on January 15, 2013. The following is a link to Rep. Scott
