I would like to commend the Stamford Jewish community for working together to create a beautiful, unified Shabbat Across America event, the creation of which was dramatically described by Rabbi Joshua Hammerman in his March 13 oped column, “A Shabbat Across the Bow.”

 A Letter in the March 13 edition stated that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu presented no real, feasible alternative in his congressional address. Quite to the contrary.

The Editorial, “Bibi, Obama And Purim” (March 6) contrasted the
approaches of President Obama to Prime Minister Netanyahu. The Editorial describes the
president as taking a pragmatic approach while the prime minister is a
“student of history.”
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines pragmatic as “dealing with the
problems that exist in a specific situation in a reasonable and logical way
instead of depending on ideas and theories.” There is nothing reasonable or
logical in the president’s approach to the Middle East. No reasonable or
logical person would support a corrupt government (Palestinian Authority)
that supports and pays salaries to terrorists over a fully democratically
elected government where everyone’s rights, even those of their enemies,
are protected under the law.

As the Jewish community comes to grips with the horrific tragedy that
happened in Brooklyn this past Shabbat [the fire that took the lives of seven young siblings], we need to keep our lives in
perspective; we get so caught up in our individual challenges, we sometimes forget that kavod
habriot [respect for one’s fellow man] and just simply appreciating each other and the life that Hashem has
granted us, is what is most imperative.

My family and I have been long-time subscribers to The Jewish Week.
Until now. We have had it with Gary Rosenblatt.

As the mother of three Israeli soldier sons currently serving their mandatory
service in the IDF, I was greatly disturbed by Gary Rosenblatt’s March 6
column, “Fear And Loathing In The Jewish World.”
