Interesting article on the advantages of brining chicken (“Brining: A quick way to flavor and tenderize the humble chicken breast,” Oct. 6) in order to improve the flavor and tenderness.

Denouncing DACA?
Posted: October 18, 2017

It was with a sense of both sorrow and annoyance that the undersigned read the article in the Sept. 15 issue of the Jewish News about the spiritual and social action leaders “denouncing” the DACA decision (“Jewish spiritual and social action leaders denounce DACA decision” ). It wasn’t enough to disagree with it or differ with it; it had to be “denounced.”

I just finished reading the article by Arthur Blecher (“Judaism without God,” Sept. 15). I could not help but feel that our values and beliefs were so close. More than a year ago, I asked the rabbi at my nephew’s funeral if it were possible to be both an agnostic and a Jew. He told me it was, indeed. That is my set of values.

We were disappointed by the front page of the Sept. 22 issue of the Jewish News in which Jewish genetic disease testing by an organization outside of our local community was featured (“Genetic testing emphasized during Tay-Sachs Awareness Month.”) Unfortunately, the article neglected to point out that the Jewish Genetic Diseases Center of Greater Phoenix has been doing this type of testing in our local community for many years.

I read Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz’s article “Ask Why We Mourn on Tisha B’av” (July 28 issue of Jewish News) and was greatly disturbed.

Your editorial about the Muslims’ violent reaction to the metal detectors (Jewish News, July 28) that Israel placed on the Temple Mount the other week, could have been clearer about the causes. You correctly referred to “Muslim intransigence,” but the cause is deeper than that. The Mufti of Jerusalem, the highest Islamic religious authority in that area, condemned the “Zionist metal detectors.” So, the problem was not the metal detectors per se, but the fact that they were placed there by Jews who were exercising a measure of Jewish sovereignty and superiority over Muslims. This is absolutely forbidden by Islam’s sacred texts in which Allah commands Muslims to make war on the Jews until the Jews submit to Islamic law, and it is forbidden by Islam’s prophet who commanded Muslims to make war on the Jews and kill them. These sacred texts are taught and preached in all mosques.

I hope Democrats don’t turn themselves inside out over Jon Ossoff’s loss in the Georgia 6th (June 20). While I’m truly sorry he lost, it was an overwhelmingly Republican district, where Tom Price won by 23 points in 2016 and the full disaster of the current Republican policies are not yet felt by most people. When the astonishingly terrible health plan is finally made public and people watch their parents, children, siblings and friends be denied health care, pay more and lose access, and they experience the full horror of President Trump’s foreign policy, decimating the State Department, turning on our allies and generally trashing 70 years of American international leadership, Democrats will win in district after district if they do the ground work that is always necessary to win elections.

After Dan Schere’s five-column discussion (“Is there a center in pro-Israel lobby?” June 9 issue of Jewish News), he concludes that there is no viable middle ground!
