For those legislators (and others) who object to requirements regarding masks or vaccinations, I would point out that they are prohibited from driving 100 mph on a residential street, they must pay taxes, they are forbidden to walk up to a stranger and punch them in the face, etc.

Great article in the Cleveland Jewish News by Staff Reporter Becky Raspe. (“ADL’s James Pasch says anti-Semitism on rise,” April 9). I read the copy that gets sent to my girlfriend’s parents’ house.

Recent letters to the Cleveland Jewish News expressed support for the Creative Living project that would provide housing for individuals with disabilities. Readers may be left with the impression that Pepper Pike zoning laws and community prejudice are the primary barriers to the project mov…

Pepper Pike can lead by example as it should. The Ursuline Sisters plan to lease to Medina Creative Housing 3 acres to build 25 single-family homes that will allow high-functioning disabled residents an opportunity to live productive, full lives. Who could object to such a noble undertaking?…

I am writing to you as a very concerned citizen of Pepper Pike, who fully and deeply supports the Creative Living at Ursuline Sisters’ project. I am hoping that this letter helps to encourage you to pass the necessary zoning variance needed to propel forward this most progressive and worthwh…

Finding housing for adults with special needs can be complicated. As a professional in the field for 30 years I have witnessed families begin the process for adult living when their child was very young. I am personally endorsing the proposed project of Community Living for Life as a worthwh…

Why are assault weapons legal in the United States? Why is my life and the lives of my family and other innocent people so unimportant to Republicans who keep insisting that assault weapons should be legal?

America’s current descent into violent racism is aimed at Asian Americans, particularly Chinese Americans. Many of these citizens are suffering indignation and violence. There have been many attacks in the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area.

I am the grandmother of Noah Goldberg, a beautiful soul and gentle young man with autism. His parents, along with many others, have worked for six years on building a safe and secure community for his future and that of his friends ... as they realize that they will not always be here.

When I was asked if I’d like to volunteer delivering kosher groceries to seniors residing in area apartment buildings last year, I wasn’t sure what I had signed up for! It has turned into one of the most enjoyable mitzvah projects I have been involved in. Working with the Cleveland Kosher Fo…

There are many emotions surrounding the Pepper Pike zoning variance application for the Ursuline Sisters’ property that has caused people to have lost sight of many facts. Although I, too, am emotionally invested in this project as my son hopes to move into the proposed homes, I want to focu…

Barney the Purple Dinosaur taught our kids that sharing is caring. Now it is time for those not yet vaccinated to hear that message ourselves. We need to wait our turn for the vaccine allowing those clearly meeting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/state criteria to receive thei…

In the Dec. 11, 2020 Cleveland Jewish News, Dr. Mark Roth wrote an article “Tests results can be misleading.” This is certainly true and while he did include multiple examples in his article, I wish he would have chosen a better example than a false positive pancreatic cancer result.

I don’t know what is more disturbing. Is it the Cleveland Jewish News again failing to properly label Columnist Regina Brett’s hit piece (“Don’t become party to the wrong party this time,” Feb. 19) as opinion or the intentionally misguided rhetoric in the article itself?

Editor & Publisher has been published since 1884, and for most of that time, it’s been considered the bible of the publishing world. Shortly after I joined the board of the Cleveland Jewish Publication Company, and then continuing through my tenure as chairman of the editorial committee,…

If you know someone (like me) who has never been able to make any real progress with respect to “moving-on” from a major and traumatic “loss” and heartache in their life, I want to suggest that you encourage them to learn about the issue and concept of “unresolved grief.” There is a lot abou…

It sure was tiresome reading CJN Columnist Regina Brett’s opinion piece Feb. 19 (“Don’t become party to wrong party this time”). While she’s surely entitled to her opinions, she is not entitled to misrepresent them as fact.

It’s disturbing Regina Brett is a lead columnist for the CJN. She calls former President Donald Trump’s supporters anti-American, anti-Democratic, and even Nazi-like using the fake Charlottesville CNN edited speech, where Trump was falsely painted as supporting white supremacists (“Don’t bec…

I wanted to say a few words about the late Cleveland Jewish News Sports Columnist Les Levine. Not having lived in Cleveland since the early 1980s, I only knew of Les through his columns, which I always looked forward to reading (“Levine recalled as icon, hall-of-famer, mensch,” Feb. 12).

Like many liberals, Stuart Muszynski’s Circle of Life story wants the world to be a certain way even though it has never been and never will be (“Hoping to get back to an ‘if, then’ nation,” Feb. 12). Poverty and kindness are relative and always will be (13th century versus now).
