Eyesight is of no avail if the heart is blind.
  —   Mivchar Hapeninim


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.

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,

Passover: Birth and rebirth
By Rabbi Pinchas Stolper

To the spiritually sensitive person, few other moments of the Jewish year compare with the beginning of the Seder in terms of the special experiences in sheer depth and overwhelming emotion. Why?

How to leave Egypt
By Paul Greenberg

One of the greatest teaching devices ever devised for young or old, but especially the young, has to be the Seder, the ceremonial meal that ushers in Passover tonight. Something like the Seder could have been invented only by generations of rabbi-teachers -- or by some singular genius like John Dewey, who understood learning by doing.

Kindliness and Blood:
A Passover thought

By Dr. Debby Schwarz Hirschhorn

I'll probably get some left wing liberal mad at me for saying this, but I don't care; I'll stick my neck out. I'm taking karate classes anyway: As organized, powerful cultures go, we Jews far and away exceed all others in kindliness.
