LETTERS July 2021

“I Was Wrong” Last month’s editorial by Rabbi Mansour (“The Three Most Difficult Words”) was right on the mark. His inspiring message needs to be spread world-wide. Many times we fail to see the benefit of simple, yet important things like admitting our failures. Saying, “I was wrong," usually brings more happiness and satisfaction to Read More »

Summer Camp Although last month’s article about summer camp (Summer Camp: A Privilege or a Right?) did mention a few solid reasons why a child should go to camp – I just don’t agree with the whole concept. I find it difficult to understand why parents are so eager to send their children away.  Summer is Read More »

Letters May 2021

Kudos Last month's publication was second to none. Every article - from the opening column to the very last column - was a pleasure to read. The cover story about how the Flatbush Community Fund has been assisting our family, friends, and neighbors was truly inspirational. The article about how the Abraham Accords has boosted Read More »

LETTERS April 2021

Community Ingenuity Last month’s cover story (Ingenuity in the Face of a Shutdown) about some of our community’s successful entrepreneurs was truly inspirational. The economic crisis due to the pandemic can feel challenging and terrifying, but the article showed how the current environment can be an ambitious time for young entrepreneurs to launch the startup Read More »

Community Weddings I really enjoyed last month’s cover story. My immediate reaction when I read the title on the cover – “Will Weddings Ever Be the Same?” was “I certainly hope not!” I am hoping that when things get back to “normal” the circuses that we called weddings will be a thing of the past.

Making Aliyah Last month’s cover story “Is the Land of Israel on Your Mind?” was about a very timely topic. Sadly, homeland and nationhood have been so thoroughly blotted from Jewish consciousness for so long that many Jews don't even realize dispersion in exile is a very undesirable state of affairs from Judaism's perspective. The Read More »

LETTERS December 2020

A New Era? I totally disagree with the message of last month’s cover story (A New Era?), which suggested that a Joe Biden presidency would not be good for Israel. While I do agree that Trump was great for Netanyahu – I feel that Biden will be much better for Israel. For Israelis and Americans, Read More »

Letters November 2020

Living the New Normal I really enjoyed last month’s cover story (Living the New Normal), as it suggested positive tips on how to deal with the current pandemic. Positivity is definitely needed during these trying times. I would like to bring up another related topic – the wearing of masks. Many people are under the Read More »

Letters November 2020

Leading by Example Rabbi Mansour’s column last month (The Ultimate “Flood” Insurance Policy) brought out such a  beautiful message.  I wish this article came out a couple of years ago. It wasn’t too long ago that I was guilty of neglecting my spouse and kids.  My children were constantly nagging me about how often I Read More »

Letters October 2020

Back to School I found the tips given in last month’s article about the upcoming school year (“Can Our Children Return to School Safely?”) to be extremely encouraging and helpful. I would like to add that it is also very important not to speak negatively about school and/or government policies in front of your children. Read More »
