The Creator gave burdens, also shoulders.   —   Jewish Saying

ABOUT JWR'S FUTURE

Not long ago, I found myself in the office of a corporate CEO. This fellow is known as a philanthropist, and I was trying for YEARS to meet with him.

After exchanging pleasantries, he became very serious. "If your own readers don't support you," he asked from behind his wide mahogany desk, "then why should I?"

Was the question insensitive? Obviously. But he had a point.

Unlike the CEO, there should be no reason for me to make a "pitch" to you about what JWR is --- and why it needs support.

We defend the values YOU hold dear and do so with elegance and eloquence.

And yet and yet, we need more and more of our readers to care -- that means you, all of you -- that we have the resources to keep on keeping on. (I'm SINCERELY grateful to those who have contributed!)

For those who aren't aware, JWR is not some multi-million dollar company. It is still a one-man-show run out of a Brooklyn basement.

To be blunt: We need your help and we need it now.

As much as I like to think positively -- it's my nature -- there comes a time when reality sets in. After discussing JWR's situation with "experts," we decided on a few possible scenarios. Here they are. We could

1) reduce our publishing schedule to twice or three times weekly.

2) become a subscription-only service with a semi-annual charge

3) offer free and "premium" tracks, which would require a fee

4) spruce up our advertising by adding pop-ups. (They are annoying, but they pay well.)

I would like things to stay the way they are, but without funding it's an impossibility.

What we have NO intention of doing is folding. We know the impact we are having in the cultural debate. And, then, there all of those warm letters we receive.

I am NOT asking you to stop reading if you can't make a donation. But I AM reassuring you that you need not be embarrassed if you can only give a small amount.

Whatever the amount, it will be greatly appreciated. At this point, ANYTHING, and I do mean ANYTHING, is better than nothing. Let's not be forced to change how JWR is run.

I've quoted the CEO. Now, let me quote a reader, James Graper: "Should I trust you with my mind but not my money?"

Donations are tax deductible.

In gratitude and friendship,

Golden Calf still with us ---
except it has multiplied

By Rabbi Berel Wein

The narrative of the incident of Israel and the Golden Calf -- read this week publicly from the Torah -- is so riveting and fascinating that we return to it year after year with renewed and refreshed interest.

The immorality of losing
By Hillel Halkin

An old friend in New York with whom we are still in contact after 33 years of living in Israel told my wife over the phone last week about the antiwar demonstration she had just marched in.

"It was like the Sixties," she said excitedly. "Remember?"

Of course we remembered. We had marched side-by-side with her and her first husband in a candlelight parade in Manhattan. "All we are saying/ is give peace a chance," we sang, linking arms as we walked up Broadway to protest the war in Vietnam.

And now I am angry at her for being against an American attack on Iraq, and she is bewildered by my anger. Both of us, on some level, feel betrayed.
