A mother understands what a child does not say.

[ J E W I S H  L I V I N G ]

Unknown history,
unheroic martyrs

By Jonathan Tobin

For most American Jews, Jews from the former Soviet Union remain an abstraction. They are the heroic refuseniks for whom we marched and demonstrated a generation ago. For a younger generation, they are the “New Americans” whose success stories or hard-luck immigrant tales are the stuff of philanthropic fundraisers.

But the reality of the complex lives of the Jews of the Soviet Union remains as much a closed book for most American Jews as that of the immigrants of the Spanish dispersion 500 years ago. We know of them, but we have no idea who they really are.

The necklaces of hatred
By Nat Hentoff

Arab kids not only collect but trade martyrs necklaces, as our children do baseball cards. Especially desirable these days is a pendant of Jihad Attiti, the 18-year-old who became the camp's first suicide bomber by blowing himself up and killing two Israelis and an 18-month-old baby and her grandmother in a Tel Aviv suburb.

The Promised Land

Jordan "Gorf" Gorfinkel's strip normally skewers life in Jewish Gen-X. Not this time. This week, his message is ecumenical. (PRINT-IT!)

Twerski program


Your favorite website was recently profiled by the prestigious wire service, United Press International (UPI). Writer Lou Marano did an absolutely amazing job capturing, not only what makes JWR tick --- but also the overall situation we are facing. If you have a free moment, click here to view the feature-length article.

In friendship --- and gratitude,
Binyamin L. Jolkovsky,
