(Editor’s Note: This letter has been edited for length.)

Thank you for another interesting issue of the Jewish Link. The articles on gay marriage and Open Orthodoxy vs. Modern Orthodoxy struck an interesting debate in our Shabbos home. We felt that Rabbi Student’s op-ed, while intended to address the gay...

To the Editor:

Congratulations to all who contributed to the historic breakthrough in support of New Jersey’s “Secure Schools for All Children Act” (A4288). Although this bill is limited to provide up to $25 per child for security improvements at nonpublic schools, it clearly demonstrates that community efforts can overcome all obstacles.

These very same efforts can be increased and magnified in support of school vouchers for every child in New Jersey, and restore “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” The NJ Parental Rights and Property Tax Reduction Act (A1785) will also reduce property taxes based on the enormous savings to be accrued by children...

In our time we face the future and choices will be forced upon us. Ahead are two paths:

We regard support of the BDS movement, in...

Your coverage of the Rosenblatt story was disgraceful. Please discontinue delivery of the Jewish Link to our home.

To the Editor:

The fact that Rabbi Rosenblatt is one of the sweetest and kindest individuals I have met does not negate the fact that he sat naked with underage children. It’s completely inappropriate and if he was a priest, he would have been booted out already. The Rabbi was warned to stop and even though he said he would stop, he did not. It seems very clear that his judgement is impaired.

I just bumped into an old friend. He said he had a client who used to go to RJC a few times a year. His 16 year old son approached him and...
