I want to tell you a little story about me and my mom. My mom grew up in the Depression and when I was old enough, I would take my mom shopping. She would go into a store and see a purse that she wanted, but she would not buy it. She would go home and talk about that purse for a week and tel…
We appreciate the coverage in the Cleveland Jewish News of our event featuring Lior Raz, the co-creator and star of “Fauda” (From the Frontlines to Fauda: An Evening with Lior Raz. (“Fauda’s Raz delights at Mandel JDS gala,” Sept. 6).
We are excited about the Mandel Jewish Community Center’s announcement of plans to partner with Active Wellness to manage operations of its fitness, aquatics and membership services to reflect the most current trends in the fitness field. (“Mandel JCC to outsource some services,” Aug. 30)
Reading about Camp Galil and Camp Deer Run brought back my happy memories as a junior counselor at Camp Galil when I was 15 and 16, where Hensha Stone, Judy Weiss’ sister, was also serving. (“Camp Stone cements Zionist memories for 50 years,” Aug. 23)
Dr. Lara Kollab is requesting a new hearing before the Ohio State Medical Board, presumably to seek to ameliorate the consequences of her prior unethical, unprofessional, dangerous, and despicable threats to harm her Jewish patients deliberately, by prescribing them the wrong medications. Th…
I am a Jewish resident of Columbus and I am outraged that the president of the United States has suggested that American Jews who don’t support him and the Republican Party are: disloyal to America; disloyal to Israel; and supporting anti-Semitism
It is very disheartening, anguishing and frankly astonishing to me how much blind hatred is spewed every day against our president (i.e., Trump derangement syndrome) by a large majority of the Democrat or left-leaning Jewish community. In spite of Trump’s undeniable close relations and suppo…
We just got back from the best summer ever – a month in Israel with 41 friends for the Camp Wise Israel Leadership Summer. After starting at Camp Wise, we flew to Israel, where we were partnered with other JCC camps: Pinemere Camp and Camp Livingston.
Thank you for the outstanding coverage of the Dayton tragedy in the Aug. 9 edition of the Cleveland Jewish News. The depth and breadth of this exceptional reporting was absolutely first rate. Please note that I did not say it was first rate for a Jewish newspaper or a weekly newspaper. This …
This is to clarify the statement, “We are no longer a program where there are set goals and guidelines,” in the Cleveland Jewish News story. (“Looking for a Hebrew school? Do your homework,” Aug. 2)
How much longer is the Jewish community going to support the Republican’s divisiveness, conservative, hatefulness, bigotry, racist, white supremacy, white nationalist in the national, state and local elections?
Up until now, I believed the best way to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 has been to focus on advocating for the federal government to do more to help the lower and middle classes with their economic and financial struggles to survive and to pay their bills. So, I have largely ignored …
The article in the Cleveland Jewish News suggesting the Holocaust and our southern border detainees are somehow in a comparable situation. (“Jewish protesters hot over ICE policies,” July 26)
Letter writer Michael Hoicowitz appears well-intentioned, but misinformed when it comes to the purpose of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, saying BDS is not about policy, but decency. (“BDS not about policy, but decency,” July 26)
Kudos to the organizers and supporter, especially the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and Shawn Fink, of the recent concert in Cain Park, featuring David “Dudu” Fisher and his adorable son.
Bravo for your comprehensive reporting on the story since the Cincinnati Enquirer article of July 9 and American Israelite article of July 18 gave so few details and major media hasn’t covered it. (“Beating sent fear through Cincy’s Russian Jewish community,” July 19)
The Cleveland Jewish News should truly have a consumer warning of sorts before letters such as Michael Hoicowitz’s (“BDS not about policy, but decency,” July 26). Reading his remarks – from a fellow Jew, no less – left me both nauseous and angry.
After reading Cleveland Jewish News Staff Reporter Jane Kaufman’s article in the week’s CJN, I double-checked the date and it falls on Shabbat. (“Pinecrest pet project – seeking Guinness World Record for dogs in photo," July 26)
Despite claims to the contrary, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and its supports are entirely about bigotry. They are no different than the Nazis and Brownshirts of Germany in the 1930s. They target only Jews with claims of our evilness. In reality, they are trying to destroy …
As Jews, we understand the dangers inherent in inflammatory rhetoric like this, which seeks to divide the country and create an “other” worthy of disdain and even hatred. We understand that there is a thin line between “send her back” and “send them back,” and that targeting people of color …
The article in the Cleveland Jewish News on July 26 was a disappointment to see members of the Jewish community taking such a strong political position when expressing their opinion about the immigration issue. (“Jewish protestors hot over ICE policies”)
Would someone of national stature, preferably one of the Democratic Party candidates for president in 2020, please tell the people of our country how full of baloney that the conservative, right-wing news media is?
The Cleveland Jewish News article on Beachwood Place accurately reflected the challenges that malls are experiencing nationally and the reasons they need to continue to evolve. (“What’s in store for Beachwood Place,” July 12)
We want to express our sincere gratitude and deep support for Jerry Isaak-Shapiro as he begins his final year at the Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School. As one of the first students of the fledgling school, I recall many skeptics. I remember regularly moving between synagogues prio…
Roger Waters and the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement are not anti-Semitic. They have nothing against Jewish people or the Jewish religion. They are against Israeli policy.
The article on Beachwood Place in the July 12 Cleveland Jewish News was the best reporting I have seen in this paper in the 37 years I’ve been a subscriber. Well-written. Well-sourced.
Having been at one time a University Heights city councilman and a member of its planning commission and board of zoning appeals, I found the article on Beachwood Place compelling. ("What’s in store for Beachwood Place?" July 12)
