This week's editorial

ADL seizes the center

It’s not often that a Jewish organization revises its position on a public matter. Most groups are beholden to an ideological slice of donors and members and are frozen on a single track.

Posted: December 07, 2016

At a companywide training session last month for members of Mid-Atlantic Media’s editorial department, I delivered my standard charge to the editors and writers who had gathered around the large conference table in a suburb of Baltimore, Maryland. Jewish community journalists have a duty to “inform, engage and inspire,” I told them.

No two-state solution
Posted: November 30, 2016

This is a response to the opinion piece “Settlements hurt chances for peace” (Jewish News, Nov. 18).

Jews and the Golden Calf: 2016
Posted: November 23, 2016

According to a New York Times exit poll, 70 percent of American Jews voted for Hillary Clinton while only 24 percent voted for Donald Trump, a smaller number than for Mitt Romney in 2012 (30 percent). This is bewildering from a pro-Israel standpoint. Confused non-Jewish friends ask me why so many Jews always vote for a party against their people’s apparent own self-interest.
