Open Letter to the Editorial Board of the Harvard Crimson

I’m sure the decision to publish wasn’t easy. I’m sure there was disagreement and debate behind the scenes. I’m sure you all had many different opinions. So I respectfully ask you to hear me out and consider another perspective to which, perhaps, you’ve never been exposed.

Actress Jennifer Grey: “People Would Rather Believe that I Hated My God-Given Jewish Nose”

Actress Jennifer Grey wrote her new memoir “Out of the Corner” to take ownership of her life story. Up until now, she’s felt as if everyone else has dictated her story.

The book starts in the late 1980s with a prologue that clarifies misconceptions about the infamous rhinoplasty that left her virtually unrecognizable—despite her being a high-profile actress at the time.

Brian Fishbach reports.

Sending Moms to Israel on Life-Changing Trips

https://jewishjournal.com/community/347540/sending-moms-to-israel-on-life-changing-trips/

“Moms are kind of the forgotten demographic in the Jewish world,” said Rebbetzin Chana Heller of Aish Los Angeles. “We throw lots of money in the direction of our kids. But we all know that if the mom isn’t inspired, it’s unlikely that Judaism will be happening in the home. The question is, ‘Who’s taking care of mom?’”

In many ways, Moms are the center of the family, and in the Jewish world, they are known to be primarily responsible for the spirituality of their home.

A Story Bridging Yom Ha’Shoah, Israel Memorial Day & Independence Day

On the eve of Israel’s Memorial Day (Yom Hazikaron) last year, at 11:30PM, our daughter Ephrat called to notify us of the birth of their little boy. She had given birth at St. Joseph’s Hospital, which is located near to what used to be the border between East and West Jerusalem, next to the Israeli Police Headquarters, on the way to Mt. Scopus.

I told her that Savta Leah (my husband’s mother) was smiling down on her from heaven.

This is a story that combines the Shoah with the founding of the State of Israel, and has many interlocking circles and the building of bridges.

One Israel Story You’ve Probably Never Heard

Whereas the Saudis and the Jordanians flat-out refused a landing, Israel said ‘yes’ to a hijacked plane from Iran, the world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism.

On the occasion of the 74th anniversary of establishment of the modern State of Israel, also known as Yom Ha’atzmaut, here’s a little-known story about Israel that’s worth sharing.

Today is Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. 74 years ago, on the day Great Britain’s mandate over Palestine expired, David Ben-Gurion declared the Jewish state reborn after 2,000 years of exile. Hundreds of thousands of Jews in Israel, in the United States, and around the world huddled next to their radio to hear the immortal words of the Israeli Declaration of Independence. In Israel, Yom Ha’atzmaut is commemorated with fireworks, street celebrations, and feasts. Are you celebrating today? Tell us how!

An Idiot Abroad on Yom HaZikaron

A number of years ago, I was sitting in my apartment in Tel Aviv when I heard a siren go off. First a low moan, like the acceleration of a motorcycle, and then a piercing cry.

There’s nothing particularly shocking about this. I had been living in Israel for a number of years and I had witnessed the beginnings, middles, and ends of a few rounds of violence—each one nearly identical in even its smallest details, to the extent that I can’t ever quite recall which war I’m talking about even as I talk about it.

I knew what to do. I stood up and went to the stairwell. I sat down on the steps and I waited to hear the “boom” of the rocket being intercepted by the Iron Dome.

Art is a potent form of resistance, and we are humbled by our peers’ passion and skill.” The PSC had organized various panels as well as a “Wall of Resistance” during Israel Apartheid Week in April; the wall had stated “Zionism is Racism Settler Colonialism White Supremacy Apartheid,” as well as other various anti-Israel slogans.

Law Profs, Jewish Groups File Briefs Supporting Texas Anti-BDS Law

The brief argued that commercial activity is not protected under the First Amendment and that the law “only prohibits the government from contracting with a company that engages in particular boycotts, which themselves remain entirely legal.” The law also defines a “boycott” as a contractor refusing to conduct commercial activity with Israel or someone based in the Jewish state for the sole purpose of inflicting “economic harm” on Israel.

Law professors and Jewish groups have each filed separate briefs urging the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to overturn a January ruling finding Texas’ anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) law unconstitutional.
