  • 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,

    Gold on the Galilee: Israeli Kayaker Comes of Age, Eyes Olympics (VIDEO)

    JNS.org – Three years ago, kayaking coach Roei Lev found aspiring Olympian Ilya Podpolnyy crying on the steps of the Jordan Valley Sprint Kayak Club overlooking the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee). Podpolnyy, then 17 years old, had just been disqualified from the Israeli kayaking championship. He couldn’t survive the heats. He didn’t make the start line. He was devastated—and he had no one with whom to share his hopes, his dreams, and his disappointment. His divorced parents still live in [...]

    JNS.org – When David Blatt was hired as head coach of the National Basketball Association’s Cleveland Cavaliers last June, he was not often recognized when he walked the streets of downtown Cleveland.
