The Mar-a-Lago Search

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

Turn the Sound Down

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

It Is Time for Another Type of Alliance

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

The Key to Understanding the Importance of Gottheimer … And It’s No Myth!

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

In Defense of The New York Times

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

More Polite, Please

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

Response to the Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee

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.

The Gottheimer Myth

As I pass by so many Jewish homes in Teaneck, I see "Josh Gottheimer" lawn signs and barely any Pallotta signs. Why is this?

Probably because Gottheimer has cultivated this image of being a moderate. Perhaps compared with some other Democrats in Congress he

Teaneck’s Democrats Respond

While we thank the Teaneck Republican Municipal Committee (TRMC) for reminding everyone that Donald Trump’s flagrant disregard for laws and norms remains an issue to be reckoned with, we must admit that the TRMC’s letter in these pages left us scratching our heads (“Teaneck Republican Committee Letter Regarding FBI

Nurturing Producers of Technology Rather Than Consumers of Technology

It is with great interest that I have been reading about the Bergen County School-Shul Tech Initiative (“A Sneak Peek of What is to Come: Living Connected: A Bergen County School-Shul Tech Initiative,” Sept. 1, 2022). I applaud all parties involved for stepping up and taking action. There is clearly a need for discussion, at the very

Get Your Facts Straight

In last week’s issue of The Jewish Link, Martin Polack, wrote a letter discussing why one should not vote for Congressman Josh Gottheimer (“Why Do We Love Congressman Gottheimer?” September 8, 2022). Unfortunately, his letter is full of factual inaccuracies. To say that Republican Candidate Frank Pallotta is better
