  • That should be Robert Lowinger, not Andy, with Elie Wiesel.

  • Excellent comment regarding Foxman, Debbie Mann. I heard that sensible Jews and true pro-Israel folks let Olmert and Dershowitz have it yesterday at the JPost conference in NYC.

  • Great photos of a great event. Kol HaKovod. So glad we were there.
    All the best,
    Helen Freedman and Charlie Bernhaut

    • Congrads to Helen Freedman and Charlie Freedman, true defenders of religious liberty. Surprised Foxman had time to tear himself away from fighting Islamophobia and show up to this event.

  • Great shabbat shalom

  • Where were PAMELA GELLER, CAROLINE GLICK and DAVID HOROWITZ? I guess they were too busy fighting for the survival of the Jewish people…wouldn’t want to invite them.

    • Or Jeff Wiesenfeld for that matter. I guess Algemeiner prefers Hollywood. Your list was very surprising. I never realized Barack Obama was Jewish? There are so many out there who are doing the hard work that you failed to recognize. It was very, very disappointing. Have you heard of Sarah Stern,Beth Gilinsky, Charles Jacobs,Lori Lowenthal Marcus,Mort Klein.I could easily go on.
      We are scratching our heads in disbelief

      • Thank you Irene, for reminding us that Jeff Wiesenfeld, and the others, are the true heroes, who labor behind the scenes in defense of the Jewish people. I am truly at a loss to understand how his name was omitted from this list.

    • Elliot J. Stamler

      Because those three are raving extremists who wouldn’t be caught dead in a room with luminaries like Abe Foxman and Alan Dershowitz..AND YOU, Mr. Sherman. You go join them at a Jewish Tea Party soiree,

    Israeli Actress Gal Gadot Slays in ‘Wonder Woman’ Trailer (VIDEO)

    Israeli actress Gal Gadot engages in fierce action sequences in the new Wonder Woman trailer, which Warner Bros. premiered during the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday.

The first shot of the video shows Wonder Woman discovering a man, Steve Trevor (played by actor Chris Pine), washed ashore. The clip then takes viewers to the all-female island where Wonder Woman was born. […]

    A Theatrical Look at Diplomacy and the Oslo Accords (REVIEW)

    Is diplomacy worthwhile, even if the end result isn’t what we hoped for? That is the question, among many others, posed by the new play Oslo, by J.T. Rogers. Making its New York debut at Lincoln Center, the play examines the secret diplomatic process that led to the historic 1993 peace accords. The character of Shimon Peres makes an appearance onstage — and he, along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, tower over the proceedings. But they mainly do so in absentia. Instead, […]

    Israeli Trailblazer Dean Kremer Brings Jewish Values to Nascent Pro Baseball Career

    JNS.org – Other than being part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, Sandy Koufax and Dean Kremer have something else in common: a respect for Jewish tradition. Koufax — who was recently ranked by ESPN as the best left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history — decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. “I would do the same,” Kremer said in an interview. Last month, the 20-year-old Kremer became […]

    The famed lead guitarist of British rock band Queen, Brian May, encouraged Jewish singer-songwriter Adam Lambert to perform in Hebrew during their upcoming joint concert in Israel, an entertainment industry advocacy organization reported on Tuesday.

May was so impressed by Lambert’s singing of the Hebrew track that he told the American singer, “We have to do that. Let’s […]

    Will Laughs Lead to Love on Show About Orthodox Dating?

    To date or not to date? That is not the question for most Modern Orthodox singles in New York. The question is when will they find their future spouses, and when will their families stop nagging them about having babies? Inspired by the success of the Israeli show “Srugim,” Leah Gottfried, 25, decided she would create and star in her own show, “Soon By You.” “Dating is so serious already,” Gottfried said. “We wanted to take a lighter approach and laugh at the […]

    Israeli actress Moran Atias said that playing a Muslim woman in the hit FX series Tyrant has changed her outlook. “Educating myself about a different culture has made me more hopeful and humble, that we’re all the same,” the Jewish actress, 35, said during an interview with AOL Build. Atias plays Leila Al-Fayeed, the strong and politically minded wife of the president of Abbudin, a fictional Middle Eastern country run by a dictatorial family.
