Silence in the face of slander
Posted: September 07, 2016

Editor: The article “Citing ‘core beliefs,’ 40 Orthodox clergy condemn Trump’s ‘hateful rhetoric,’ Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz among leaders of effort” (posted on jewishaz.com, Aug. 22) made me wonder why I hear only relative silence from our Jewish leaders and rabbis when there are many slanders against Israel, our Jewish heritage and Jews, in our country and around the world?

2020 election cycle has begun
Posted: July 27, 2016

Editor: If you are fed up, bored, tired of the 2016 election, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news, if you are a political junkie, is that the 2020 election campaign has started. The bad news is that Ted Cruz gave the first speech of the 2020 election cycle.

Enthusiastic supporter
Posted: July 20, 2016

Editor: My family and I enthusiastically welcome the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Phoenix’s acquisition of Phoenix’s 68-year-old Jewish News. Our family – my parents, Cecil and Pearl Newmark, followed by my husband Paul and me – owned and published Jewish News for 52 of those years, until my retirement in 2013, motivated always by a deep commitment to our community.

Lauding Dr. Zinn, a mensch
Posted: July 13, 2016

Editor: The Orthodox Jewish community in Phoenix is one that is filled with many young families. Many years before all these “newcomers,” there was a man who planted and nurtured the seeds of Yiddishkeit here in Phoenix. I was recently in Brooklyn and was honored to visit with him after many years – he is Dr. Sheldon Zinn.

Out of bounds
Posted: June 22, 2016

Editor: In the last edition, there was a picture of two men, entering into a “marriage” (“A chuppah of equality,” Jewish News, June 17). The country and the state may well recognize the union of two men as a marriage, but the holy Torah is very clear on this issue. Homosexuality is termed a toeiva, an abomination. It’s not open to discussion, it’s an abomination, an aveira, a sin.
