  • 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 – “Risk: The Game of Strategic Conquest,” the classic Parker Brothers board game, requires imperial ambitions. Players imagine empires and are pitted against each other, vying for world domination. Amid this fictional world war, beginners learn fast that no matter the superiority of their army, every advance is a gamble determined by a roll of the dice. After a defeat, a player must retreat. Weighted reinforcement cards provide the only opportunity to reverse a player’s fortunes and resume the [...]

    Does Working Out With Other Jews Keep You Jewish?

    JNS.org – For Daphna Krupp, her daily workout (excluding Shabbat) at the Jewish Community Center (JCC or “J”) of Greater Baltimore has become somewhat of a ritual. She not only attends fitness classes but also engages with the instructors and plugs the J’s social programs on her personal Facebook page. “It’s the gym and the environment,” says Krupp. “It’s a great social network.” Krupp, who lives in Pikesville, Md., is one of an estimated 1 million American Jewish members of more [...]

    Sports Illustrated Profiles Orthodox NCAA Basketball Player Aaron Liberman

    Sports Illustrated magazine featured an extensive profile on Orthodox-Jewish college basketball player Aaron Liberman on Wednesday.  The article details Liberman’s efforts to balance faith, academics and basketball at Tulane University, a challenge the young athlete calls “a triple major.” Sports Illustrated pointed out that Liberman is the second Orthodox student to play Division I college basketball. The other was Tamir Goodman, the so-called “Jewish Jordan.” As reported in The Algemeiner, Liberman started his NCAA career at Northwestern University. According to [...]

    Forthcoming Major Action Movies Inspired by Jewish Comic Artist Jack Kirby

    JNS.org – With the recent Oscars in the rearview mirror, Hollywood’s attention now shifts to the rest of this year’s big-screen lineup. Two of the major action films coming up in 2015—Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters in May, and the third film in the Fantastic Four series, slated for an August release—have Jewish roots that the average moviegoer might be unaware of. As it turns out, it took a tough Jewish kid from New York City’s Lower East [...]

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency. In America’s Great Game: The CIA’s Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, historian Hugh Wilford shows this has always been the case. Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]
