Letters TO THE EDITOR

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

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.

Although it has been a while since the tragic passing of Rabbi Yossie Stern, the Executive Director of Project Ezrah, it is difficult for me personally to come to terms with his passing. Regretfully, I was not able to attend his leveya and feel guilty about not being able to make an appearance. I have also read a number of tributes that were

Kudos many times over to Rabbi Dr. Mordechai and Nina Glick for their always heartfelt and deeply considered thoughts as penned for these pages. I was especially moved by their two pieces in the March 6 issue.

Dear Been There and Done That:

I would hope that a Rav would have responded in the same manner as I did to the person who wrote to me in my role as a psychologist.  It is of utmost importance for two people who have committed to a marital relationship to do everything that they possibly can do to save their marriage. She could have gotten a divorce, but has

We asked for delivery of your paper after finding our first issue many months ago at a Teaneck pizza shop.  We live 20 minutes from Teaneck and have been going out of our way to pick up your paper until last month, when we happily found the paper delivered to our front door early in the morning. We now receive it regularly every two

After much internal conflict, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to your demand that it release one hundred and four of its most tightly-held prisoners to entice Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to enter peace talks.

To the Editor:

Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the caliber of the Jewish Link. I think the articles are well researched, the editing is of the finest quality (puts the other Jewish-focused papers to shame) and it is balanced.

Unlike most of the other papers, you are also not afraid to print the truth, even when it is unpopular

Holt - A Mature Political Thinker and Intellect

President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “I am neither bitter nor cynical but I do wish there was less immaturity in political thinking.” Yet, all too often when we turn on the TV we see men and women screaming at each other and splitting hairs on what seem to be irrelevant issues. One must

I would like to thank the Jewish Link for showcasing the Jewish community of Paramus. I would also like to point out a few things that were overlooked in the article: KAJ of Paramus has operated a vibrant nursery school for over 30 years and offers several popular shiurim/classes, including Daf Yomi, Gemorah, and Pirkei Avos.

In addition,
