Jewish Communal Organizations are Endangering American Jews

American Thinker, March 17,2019 Elliot Bartky and Alon Friedman Congress’s refusal last week to censure or even reprimand Rep. Ilhan Omar’s repeated expressions of Jew-hatred was a historic moment that should have been met with universal condemnation by America’s Jewish communal organizations, especially since Jews have not felt this beleaguered worldwide since the Shoah.  Yet most of these groups that for...

Rabbis wrong about billboard

Originally posted at Indianapolis Star on June 13, 2017 As officers of the only statewide Jewish advocacy group in Indiana, we feel obligated to respond to the letter signed by 16 rabbis essentially demanding the silencing of any public reference to Islamic hatred of Jews.
