“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it w…

Unforgettable or unable to be forgotten. That is how the French portray their favorite celebrities. And if ever there was a Cleveland celebrity who is unforgettable, it is our own former Jewish National Fund Tree of Life honoree Harlan Diamond.

Today’s Democratic party is the party of socialism, led by socialists Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad.” The platform includes her “Green New Deal” and calls an end to airline travel within 10 years: end to fossil fuel (no more cars or factories); and other socialistic…

Anti-Semitic hate crimes have skyrocketed with Donald Trump’s presidency. Trump embraces white supremacists. One need only examine world history to determine when a society has his brand of divisive leadership, it portends badly for the Jews. We need to be careful with whom we align ourselves.

I was a Jewish Democrat for 20-plus years. I didn’t leave the Democrat party, it left me. Today’s Democrat party has many anti-Semites leading it, like the “Squad.” Joe Biden doesn’t challenge or speak against them. As a vice president, he didn’t fight anti-Semitism. He and Obama treated Isr…

The pro-Trump ad in the Cleveland Jewish News illustrates the falsehoods perpetrated by the president. The ad states Donald Trump didn’t decrease funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while omitting he repeatedly tried to do so. Congress restored the funding.

The rezoning vote on Issue 34 is about two simple questions: Do Pepper Pike residents want or need mixed-use in our bucolic community? Is the language in the proposed zoning ordinance adequate to protect the city? The answer is no. Residents should vote no on this issue because they are bein…

I want to thank CJN Staff Reporter Jane Kaufman for writing that very personal and inspirational article about the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the wonderful impacts she made on local residents. (“Ginsburg recalled for impact on area women’s lives,” Cleveland Jewish News, Sept. 25)

Your and everyone else’s coverage of the life and death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg brings to mind the story of an 18-year-old Cleveland Heights boy who in September 1954 had just enrolled as a freshman at Cornell University.

If James Pasch, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, was “shocked the president didn’t forcefully denounce white supremacists” at his debate with Joe Biden, I have to wonder whether Pasch has just been revived from a coma. (“ADL Cleveland: Trump’s debate remarks ‘unacceptable,’” …

As a middle-of-the road Democrat, my political views are frequently in agreement with middle-of-the road Republican friends. All of us seem to agree on one thing, however, our president is sorely lacking in character. Character matters.

JStreet had a successful Zoom launch of its Cleveland chapter on Sept. 30 with more than 100 in attendance. The chapter was the result of several Clevelanders who found a home in J Street, which is Pro Israel/Pro Peace.

I find it disturbing that the Cleveland Jewish News chooses to put news of a raid on Tibor’s Kosher Meats and family homes in the paper when no charges or problems have been identified. (“Federal agents raid Tibor’s Kosher Meats, three houses,” Sept. 25)

Tyler Buchanan’s article mentioned that young people often do not have knowledge about the Holocaust and some don’t think the Holocaust actually happened. (“Bill seeks to improve Holocaust understanding in Ohio,” Cleveland Jewish News, Oct. 9)

What I find to be the most frustrating, irritating and immoral about today’s political “conservatives” is how many – not all – follow the lead of many of their biggest campaign donors/contributors who are pulling their strings behind the scenes. These donors contribute millions and millions …

I am a retired geriatric social worker. I was the social worker at the R.H. Myers Apartments for 24 years and was The Centers for Family and Children’s EASE employee assistance eldercare specialist for the same 24 years.

The ad on page 17 in the Oct. 2 issue of the CJN refers to the comments of two freshman democrats, who mistakenly believed that someone could not contribute to Israel and remain a loyal patriotic citizen of the United States. When apprised of their mistake, they removed their remarks and apo…

Where is the Anti-Defamation League’s response to Sen. Kamala Harris’ faux pas in stating that she is proud of Jacob Blake and his family, whom she has described as “incredible” and “wonderful?”

President Donald Trump’s debate answer to the question on white supremacy will hopefully wake up all of the Jewish community to the true nature of his plans. The Proud Boys, like so many other white militias, have an agenda that precludes Jews, not just Blacks, GLBTX and non-European immigra…
