The undergraduate student government at Case Western Reserve University has now passed a truly malevolent, ignorant, totally detached from reality, anti-Israel resolution. Cited among “various illegal actions committed by the Israeli state,” were “apartheid,” a blockade intended to harm Gaza…

I am perplexed by the inclusion of two particular weekly columnists who appear in the Cleveland Jewish News. First, I don’t understand the benefit of running Ben Cohen’s column. He seems to be solely obsessed with antisemitism, an important topic already deftly covered in your news articles …

To follow what is happening at Case Western Reserve University, whose student senate recently passed a boycott, divestment and sanctions resolution, you have to first understand the working definition of antisemitism. The United States defines BDS as antisemitic as well as 35 other countries…

The Maltz Museum has taken on a new mission, in its words, to “Stop the Hate.” I hope they will not leave behind the heritage piece. Browsing through the new program guide, there are few if any programs focused on Jewish heritage other than the Holocaust, 1960s civil rights activism and vict…

The letter to the editor, “Leave Beachwood schools alone,” offered insight into what makes Beachwood schools special – its students, staff and families. However, I have to respectfully disagree with the author’s conclusion. To “preserve the intimacy and accessibility” the author prizes, Beac…
