  • 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,

    JNS.org – My wife Suzy and I will never forget our wedding day. It was not just the uplifting ceremony and beautiful party that left an indelible mark. Some life-altering advice that we received from one of our guests informed and shaped our lives from that day forward. My high school teacher, Rabbi Moshe Yagid, pulled us aside just before the chuppah and challenged us to choose one mitzvah that would be the foundation of our marriage and our lives. He explained [...]

    JNS.org – Influenced by his Jewish upbringing and a summer on a kibbutz, basketball coach David Blatt is embarking on his highest-profile challenge yet: coaching LeBron James, the four-time National Basketball Association (NBA) Most Valuable Player who has made waves for returning to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers. After guiding Israel’s storied Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball franchise to its 51st Israeli league championship and 6th Euroleague title this past season, Blatt landed the Cavaliers head-coaching job in June. Just weeks later, [...]

    Young Syrian Jewish Restauranteur Continues a Family Legacy

    JNS.org – At the turn of the century, a young Jewish immigrant arrived in New York. So begins the history of many American Jewish families. It is 27-year-old Albert Allaham’s story, too, with a few unusual twists. Albert’s “century” is the 21st—he arrived almost 100 years after the massive waves of European Jewish immigration. Rather than coming from a small town along the Danube river, his shtetl was Damascus. His first American business was not a pushcart on the Lower East [...]

    A Holistic Look at the Rebbe’s Life and Career (REVIEW)

    Did you know that in the entire Bible, only one birthday is mentioned and it is that of Pharaoh? And did you know that according to some scientists, by accepting Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, it is impossible to prove or disprove that the sun is the gravitational center of our solar system? In his new book, REBBE, best-selling author Joseph Telushkin reveals many surprising and sometimes shocking details as he chronicles the life and teachings of the charismatic Rabbi [...]

    New Jerusalem Eatery’s Uniform Pricing Seeks to ‘Help People Make It’

    JNS.org – Omelet sandwich: 5 shekels. Iced coffee: 5 shekels. Tuna sandwich: 5 shekels. Fresh-squeezed orange juice: 5 shekels. Cheese bureka: 5 shekels. There’s plenty more on the Cofizz menu, but you get the idea. Dani Mizrahi and Amir Amshalm, two Israeli men in their early 30s, asked themselves: Why not launch a take-out food joint in busy neighborhoods around Jerusalem where everything—and that means everything—goes for five shekels, or about $1.50. They’d seen the concept take off in Tel Aviv, where [...]

    The new FX Network drama Tyrant was shot entirely in Israel, just 10 miles north of Tel Aviv, Bloomberg News reported last Tuesday.

    Skokie, Il-born 25-year-old Erin Heatherton (Erin Heather Bubley) is rocking the modeling world. And in a new interview accompanying a cover spread for Miami’s Ocean Drive magazine, she says Jewish moms are “constantly trying to set her up with their sons.” Imagine that – who would have thought? “The moms, they’re doing what they do. It doesn’t matter what country they live in, what city – grandmothers, too,” she admitted. “But I’m probably going to do that too one day.” Heatherton was [...]

    First Ever: Turkish Academics to Visit Israel Holocaust Museum for Seminar

    Some 15 Turkish university professors and lecturers will take part in a first of its kind seminar at Holocaust museum Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies starting next week. The trip is especially significant as Holocaust denial is rampant in the Arab world. A Palestinian professor was recently forced to resign after he led a trip to the Nazi extermination camp Auschwitz. Participants in the week-long program at Yad Vashem will experience in-depth tours of the museum’s archives and [...]
