We are all deluged by the media regarding the violence Jan. 6 in Washington, D.C. What I tire from is the allegation that there was not enough police presence to quell the uprising.
I am mortified at the Cleveland Jewish News’ placement of Columnist Regina Brett’s most recent opinion piece – front and center (feigning news) – as the headline of your Jan. 15 edition. Really?
Does Cleveland Jewish News Columnist Regina Brett blame mayors of Portland, Los Angeles, etc., for the violence and death of many innocent people? (“Blood on Trump’s hands stains Capitol, country,” Jan. 15)
I have two issues with the Jan. 15 Cleveland Jewish News: First, I usually agree with Columnist Regina Brett, but her scathing op-ed on the front page irritated me because I don’t believe she has the whole story. However, I will defend her right to her opinion.
Wow. I am reeling after reading about Valerie Charms Mason and husband, Todd Mason, who decided to go to Washington for the “stop the steal” rally. ("Beachwood resident describes experience at Capitol,” Jan. 15)
The 6 p.m. evening minyan at B’nai Jeshurun Congregation ended the service on Jan. 6 with a prayer for the country. Rabbi Josh Foster recited the prayer and we all ended by saying Amen. Democrats, Republicans and Independents, we were one country. Where better to pray that G-d heard us but a…
Am I the only one who sees something terribly wrong with this statement: “The governor (Mike DeWine) said the state expects to receive 100,000 vaccines (the week of Jan. 19) to serve those residents (over 80), which makes up about 420,000 people. The plan will be to add five more years to th…
Joel Weiner’s letter in the Cleveland Jewish News talks of purported evidence of fraudulent voting and beliefs of the president’s legal team (“Where is election integrity?” Jan. 8). If the purported evidence actually existed and had been presented in any of the more than 60 cases filed by th…
In response to Joel Weiner’s letter “Where is election integrity?” (Jan. 8), I am sorry that some do not have greater faith in our elections. In America, voters pick our leaders, our leaders do not pick and choose which voices to heed and which to silence. Despite this pandemic, Americans tu…
I am beyond shocked that in the interest of the First Amendment value of freedom of speech, the Cleveland Jewish News has totally abdicated the role of the media. Now more than ever, the press must commit to publishing the truth and opinions based on facts. That after the Capitol riot of Jan…
In the aftermath of the failed putsch by crazed Trump supporters, some of our Cleveland Jewish News readers who wrote passionate letters in support of the soon-to-be-departed president and who signed onto paid ads extolling his leadership might want to engage in some serious soul searching.
Money is a tool to get people through life. When you are on your death bed, your money and all your material possessions are irrelevant. Nothing matters but all the people in your life that you loved and loved you!
The article on Mindy Grossman, CEO of Weight Watchers, states that “She is the adopted daughter of” and lists her parents (“WW International CEO Grossman talks wellness during pandemic,” Jan. 1). It would be more enlightened to leave out the word adopted. In the heart, there is no difference.
I am disappointed to learn that the city of Beachwood has been awarding no-bid engineering and construction contracts for years. This practice is a violation of the public trust and the spirit of local law.
With every infrastructure construction project (roads, sewers, etc.), there is an engineering design contract and an engineering inspection contract. Beachwood has always given both contracts to the same firm without allowing other firms to be considered or compete for them. Without other pr…
It is scary and dangerous how much power the radical left has. One cannot even talk about all the massive election and voter fraud that took place without being immediately suppressed.
Despite the need to practice social distancing this Chanukah, our Chabad menorahs have never burned brighter. Our telephone is ringing off the hook from appreciative Clevelanders expressing their thanks to Chabad for bringing the spirit of Chanukah to their communities in such creative ways.
This year we all needed a little extra light. Thank you Hashem. Thank you to everyone who helped make it possible and incredibly successful. The Light After Dark Menorah Parade covered 22-plus miles across four cities and brought the light of Chanukah to so many.
As attention swirls around Cleveland Indians’ owner Paul Dolan’s decision to replace our team’s controversial name, it’s important to remember our ballclub and city have been longtime leaders in the area of social change.
I was not at all surprised to learn about the falsification of COVID-19 testing at a local elder care facility recently reported by the Cleveland Jewish News (“Former Montefiore administrator under investigation,” Nov. 20).
Paula Friedman’s letter criticizing the Cleveland Jewish News for giving suburbs a bad rap is well meant but misguided (“CJN articles give suburbs bad rap,” Dec. 4).
I, for one, am sick and tired of “journalists” methodically spinning facts, crafting verbiage in but technical truth. CJN Columnist Cliff Savren’s column is but his latest. (“U.S. election should return some calm to Israel,” Nov. 27)
An election of critical importance to all of us is taking place in Georgia on Jan. 5. Jon Ossoff, who is Jewish, and the Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock are Democrats running for U.S. Senate.
