Goodbye for the Present

Heather Robinson.

My mother is fond of saying that with one body, you can’t be everywhere. And although in today’s cyber-reality, as a writer you pretty much can (be in multiple places, that is), contractual arrangements prevent me from doing so. I have accepted a position as editor of Blueprint Jewish Event Guide, and will be covering personalities, trends, arts, culture and events with a focus on the single life. With three publications covering New York, Los Angeles, and Jerusalem, I’ll be busy, and delighted to work with Blueprint’s staff in writing and editing fresh, smart, funny and thought-provoking stories that speak to what it means to be single, young and Jewish in 2013. Please visit the sites, nybluebrint.com, losangelesblueprint.com, and jerusalemblueprint.com – whether you are young, Jewish and single or just young at heart, Jewish-friendly, or single-friendly; we are excited to welcome you.

It has been a pleasure contributing to The Algemeiner under the leadership of Dovid Efune, who has spearheaded the rapid growth of this up-and-coming source of U.S. political and Israel news. I will continue to write about U.S. politics and Mideast affairs with a focus on Israel and courageous dissidents and allies of Israel in the Muslim world on my blog, www.heatherrobinson.net, which will be upgraded soon. I will also continue my career as a pundit on Israel and Mideast affairs by contributing to broadcast and print news publications across the political spectrum, and am available for speaking engagements about my areas of expertise. I hope you’ll visit my blog and follow me on Twitter at HE_Robinson.

Thank you to my readers and commenters. Scrutiny of the status quo (both in government and media), dialogue, and discussion are the lifeblood of our democracy. It is an honor to be catalyst and reporter, but I’m neither without a readership and so, whether we agree or disagree, thank you, and don’t be strangers.

  • I haven’t read any of your reports…however I hope your great beauty
    externally has been reflected in sane reporting. What I have seen so far places this paper squarely inside the fanatical-zionist realm. I admit that I don’t have enough experience with it to be absolute in terms of ‘long experience’ with it.

    Your comment “Scrutiny of the status quo (both in government and media), dialogue, and discussion are the lifeblood of our democracy.

    If you were an honest researcher and reporter…then I’ll miss you even though I don’t know you.I do hope that your new posting will not include the dissemination of the currilous racist cartoons and slurs seen in several Jewish newspapers…and especially I have noted them in Australia…aparently a zionist paradise.

    Please Heather DO show us the good side of Jewery and the art it has.

    a Bientot.Voila.

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]

    Jewish ‘Hoops Whisperer’ a Secret Weapon for NBA Stars

    JNS.org – Idan Ravin’s friends chipped in to buy him a humble but life-changing bar mitzvah gift—a basketball hoop his father attached to the roof of his garage. Little did his friends know that years later, he would be the personal trainer of National Basketball Association (NBA) stars Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, and Stephen Curry. Ravin’s new book, “The Hoops Whisperer: On the Court and Inside the Head of Basketball’s Best Players,” details his rise from a Jewish upbringing [...]

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    So Close: Israeli Judoka Loses Crown in World Cup Final, Finishes With Silver (VIDEO)

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
