Thank you for the outstanding coverage of the Dayton tragedy in the Aug. 9 edition of the Cleveland Jewish News. The depth and breadth of this exceptional reporting was absolutely first rate. Please note that I did not say it was first rate for a Jewish newspaper or a weekly newspaper. This …

How much longer is the Jewish community going to support the Republican’s divisiveness, conservative, hatefulness, bigotry, racist, white supremacy, white nationalist in the national, state and local elections?

Up until now, I believed the best way to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 has been to focus on advocating for the federal government to do more to help the lower and middle classes with their economic and financial struggles to survive and to pay their bills. So, I have largely ignored …

Letter writer Michael Hoicowitz appears well-intentioned, but misinformed when it comes to the purpose of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, saying BDS is not about policy, but decency. (“BDS not about policy, but decency,” July 26)

Despite claims to the contrary, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and its supports are entirely about bigotry. They are no different than the Nazis and Brownshirts of Germany in the 1930s. They target only Jews with claims of our evilness. In reality, they are trying to destroy …

As Jews, we understand the dangers inherent in inflammatory rhetoric like this, which seeks to divide the country and create an “other” worthy of disdain and even hatred. We understand that there is a thin line between “send her back” and “send them back,” and that targeting people of color …

The article in the Cleveland Jewish News on July 26 was a disappointment to see members of the Jewish community taking such a strong political position when expressing their opinion about the immigration issue. (“Jewish protestors hot over ICE policies”)

The Cleveland Jewish News should truly have a consumer warning of sorts before letters such as Michael Hoicowitz’s (“BDS not about policy, but decency,” July 26). Reading his remarks – from a fellow Jew, no less – left me both nauseous and angry.

Would someone of national stature, preferably one of the Democratic Party candidates for president in 2020, please tell the people of our country how full of baloney that the conservative, right-wing news media is?

We want to express our sincere gratitude and deep support for Jerry Isaak-Shapiro as he begins his final year at the Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School. As one of the first students of the fledgling school, I recall many skeptics. I remember regularly moving between synagogues prio…

Having been at one time a University Heights city councilman and a member of its planning commission and board of zoning appeals, I found the article on Beachwood Place compelling. ("What’s in store for Beachwood Place?" July 12)

The Freiman and Steiger families were so blessed to be able to host six Israeli scouts from the Southeast Friendship Caravan on their tour through Cleveland and JCC camps. The teenage scouts were a delight to have in our homes and immediately became like members of our families. Mazel tov to…

Many thanks to the sponsors and donors who supported the 2019 ORT Jurisprudence Awards on June 27. Honorees Anne Meyers and Michael Frantz are exemplary members of the legal and general communities, and we were honored to recognize them for their many contributions locally and globally, and …

As a suburban reporter for The Cleveland Press in the 1960s, I covered University Heights. That is where I met then longtime Mayor Earl Aurelius. He not only got me into politics, but he invoked a formula for success I rely on today. 

Oberlin vice president and dean of students Meredith Raimondo, who has not been fired, made clear she believes her pedagogical role is to “unleash the students” to destroy Gibson’s Bakery (“Gibson’s Bakery wins $44 million in lawsuit against Oberlin College,”June 21). 

At the 2019 Tikkun Leil Shavuot, presented by B’nai Jeshurun Congregation, attendees were energized by the 37 thought-provoking presenters, uplifted by the spiritual prayer services, gladden by enjoying three meals and inspired by the unity of 400 participants of diverse affiliations and bac…

I’m curious about the current editorial policy of the Cleveland Jewish News as to what news is fitting and proper for distribution in the Cleveland Jewish community. Recent full front page coverage and more stories like Gibson’s Bakery, the restaurant melee in Pepper Pike and even the size a…
