  • 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,

    Two Decades Before Cleveland’s First NBA Title, LeBron James Walked Onto a JCC Court

    JNS.org – The seed for the city of Cleveland’s first professional championship in a major sport in 52 years may have been planted at the Shaw Jewish Community Center on White Pond Drive in Akron, Ohio, nearly 20 years ago. That’s when a tall, lanky kid from Akron named LeBron James walked onto the hardwood court and changed the game of basketball forever. Coach Keith Dambrot, now the head basketball coach at the University of Akron, conducted those sessions that attracted […]

    North American Studios Look to Israel for Next Animation Hit

    JNS.org – In 2008, Yoram Honig was a producer and director living in Jerusalem, fresh off his first international hit, when the Jerusalem Development Authority (JDA) came to him with a challenge: build a film industry from scratch in Israel’s capital. “When we started here, was nothing in Jerusalem,” he said during an interview in his office in the Talbiya neighborhood. Now, the Jerusalem Film and Television Fund, which Honig heads as an arm of the JDA, pumps 9 million shekels […]

    Britain’s world heavyweight champion, Taylor Fury, should be banned from boxing for making Nazi-like comments, a former world champion from the Ukraine said on Thursday, ahead of their upcoming match. “I was in shock at his statements about women, the gay community, and when he got to the Jewish people, he sounded like Hitler,” Wladimir Klitschko told British media, according to Reuters. “We cannot have a champion like that. Either he needs to be shut up or shut down in the ring, or […]

    Rabbi Shows Cooking Skills and Humor on Chopped

    Rabbi Hanoch Hecht just made television history; but, unfortunately, he couldn’t have his rugelach and eat it too. Hecht became the first rabbi to compete on the hit show “Chopped,” where contestants are forced to use four random ingredients in their recipes, and have 20-30 minutes to create an appetizer, a main course and a dessert. A contestant is eliminated after each round. Hecht, 32, said that while the dishes and utensils were new, the kitchen was not kosher, so he couldn’t taste […]

    The Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour, which started on Friday in New York City, features a mini-documentary about an elderly Jewish woman whose journey away from Orthodoxy leads her to taste forbidden food for the first time in her life.
