FOR GOVERNOR

The Jewish Voice calls on voters to strenuously voice their opposition to the far left radical policies of both the incumbent in New York State’s Democratic primary for governor, Andrew Cuomo and his challenger Cynthia Nixon. The policies that were promulgated and implemented by the Cuomo administration throughout his tenure as governor have been highly politicized as the governor continues to pander to his left wing base which does not represent the values of hard

working, family oriented New Yorkers who happen to maintain “middle of the road” political views. Let’s also not forget the fact that the Cuomo administration has been plagued with the most loathsome forms of government corruption and unadulterated graft. As for Nixon, her ostensibly progressive politics are nothing more than a thinly veiled smoke screen for her authentic agenda of establishing a totally far left, socialist democratic style government here in the Empire State. The fact that Nixon has given her complete imprimatur to the legalization of marijuana in New York State speaks volumes. When questioned

during a recent debate with Cuomo on the issue of what she would do to help parents keep their children away from the influences of this gateway drug, she did not answer the question. As such, the Jewish Voice calls on voters to register their protest against these two candidates by not voting for either one of them.

Trump Shutters PLO Office in DC; Historic Move Praised by US & Israeli Leaders By: Gary Willig

I

srael Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Trump Administration's decision to close the Palestinian Liberation Organization's (PLO) mission in Washington DC Tuesday evening, following the conclusion of the Rosh Hashanah holiday. “The US took the correct decision,” Netanyahu said. “Israel supports these actions that are meant to make it clear to the Palestinians that refusing to negotiate will not bring about peace.” On Monday, the PLO announced that the US had ordered the closure of its Washington DC mission. The US State Department later confi med the move, stating that the Palestinian Authority (PA) had consis-

ing a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017," a State Department spokesperson stated. Last November, the Trump Administration surprised the PA when then- Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had determined that the PA ran afoul of a provision in a U.S. law that says the PLO mission must close if the PA tries to get the International Criminal Court to prosecute Israelis for crimes against Last November, the Trump Administration surprised the PA when Palestinian Arabs. then- Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had determined that the PA ran Later, however, State Deafoul of a provision in a U.S. law that says the PLO mission must close partment official said that it if the PA tries to get the International Criminal Court to prosecute was decided to keep the deleIsraelis for crimes against Palestinian Arabs. gation open for at least 90 days, and at the end of that period, tently refused to engage with the "We have permitted the PLO Trump could announce that US government or to support offic to conduct operations that he is prolonging its activity bepeace talks with Israel. support the objective of achiev- cause it is vital for supporting

National Infrastructure Minister Yuval Steinitz (Likud), a member of the Israeli security cabinet, applauded the decision by the White House earlier this week to shutter the Palestine Liberation Organization’s mission in Washington DC over the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to commit to the resumption of fi nal status talks with Israel. “I’m surprised the decision didn’t come earlier,” Steinitz said in an interview with Radio 103FM. “The Palestinians already went too far in their very public refusal to [renew] peace talks.

John Bolton: US to Desert ‘Outright g Dangerous’ Int’l Criminal Court 'For all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us' By: Natalie Johnson

T

he United States will withdraw all support from the International Criminal Court, National Security Adviser John Bolton announced Monday, condemning the body as an "assault" on the U.S. Constitution and American sovereignty. In his fi st public address since joining the Trump administration in April, Bolton called the court "antithetical to our nation's ideals" and pledged to "use any means necessary" to protect the United States and its allies from "unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court." "We will not cooperate with the ICC," Bolton said at an event Monday hosted by the conservative Federalist Society. "We will provide no assistance to the ICC. We will not join the ICC. We will let the ICC die on its own. After

all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us." Bolton's remarks come nearly a year after the ICC prosecutor asked to investigate alleged war crimes committed by U.S. service members and intelligence official who served in Afghanistan. Bolton rejected the claims as "utterly unfounded" and unjustifie . Bolton threatened sanctions and a ban on travel to the United States against judges and prosecutors involved in attempted tribunals of Americans or Israelis. Countries that cooperate with ICC prosecutions against the United States and its allies risk losing foreign aid. The United States may also negotiate more binding bilateral agreements to bar nations from surrendering American citizens to the international court. Set up in 2002, the court was meant to prosecute war crimes,

crimes against humanity, and genocide. More than 120 countries are members, but the United States, China, and Russia never signed up. "In theory, the ICC holds perpetrators of the most egregious atrocities accountable for their crimes, provides justice to the victims, and deters future abuses," Bolton said. "In practice, however, the court has been ineffective, unaccountable, and indeed, outright dangerous." "Moreover, the largely outspoken, but always central aim of its most vigorous supporters was to constrain the United States. Th objective was not limited to targeting U.S. service members, but rather America's senior political leadership and its relentless determination to keep our country secure." Bolton's speech comes on the heels of a State Department announcement that the Trump

The report showed that the economy gained jobs last August, marking the 95th months in a row of job gains. Not only are people employed, but the report indicated they are also seeing wage growth that hasn’t been seen since 2009. A more neoliberal economy stoked by Republican tax cuts and deregulations helped make it possible for the economy to add 201,000 jobs during August, with the unemployment rate at a low not seen in about 18 years.

Professional business services in particular added a lot of jobs. Healthcare companies added 33,000 jobs, with construction, and mining jobs also saw big increases. The Jewish Voice has been reporting on the economy under this administration and how some key policies could affect the state of the economy. Tariffs on imported steel seems to be having some positive effects domestically, especially for US Steel. Not only has the company’s profits gone up, but they say that the forecast remains optimistic. The longtime company said its quarterly profits increased almost 40 percent. Now that the

The tariffs helped domestic steel prices increase by 5 to 10 percent during the quarter of focus. Prices of its US-made steel rose 5 percent to 10 percent in the quarter. As shipping increases revenue too, US Steel expects its steel tube business to start turning a healthy profit in coming months. The tariffs at play here slap 25 percent fees on the majority of imported steel, with the same applying to aluminum imports at a rate of 10 percent. After making a lot of noise about other countries ripping off America, President Donald Trump sent a message heard ‘round the world when he announced the tariffs in February that rattled allies around the globe.

'Brazilian Donald Trump' p Stabbed During Campaign Rally Jair Bolsonaro, a front-runner in Brazil's presidential election, stabbed during campaign rally. He is listed in stable condition By: Ben Ariel

A

front-runner in Brazil's presidential election who has been dubbed “the Brazilian Donald Trump” was stabbed during a campaign rally last Thursday, reported the BBC. The candidate, pro-Israel politician Jair Bolsonaro, was attacked in the city of Juiz de Fora in the south-eastern state of Minas Gerais. His son provided an update on his condition and said he underwent surgery for injuries to his liver and intestines and is now stable. Recent polls suggest Bolsonaro would get the most votes in next month's presidential elections if

former president Lula da Silva fails in his attempt to overturn a ban on him standing. Footage of the incident shows Bolsonaro making a thumbs-up gesture and being held aloft by supporters when he appears to be stabbed with a knife. He then doubles over with pain and his supporters quick-

The 63-year-old is representing the Social Liberal Party (PSL) and many refer to him as the "Brazilian Trump" due to his statements but also due to his platform which is similar to Trump’s.

One of Jair Bolsonaro's key campaign messages is that he will try to turn around the growth in violent crime. The fact that he is now a victim himself plays into the hands of his supporters, who see this as a very important problem for Brazil to tackle. Everyone–including his detractors–has rallied around him to condemn the attack. As it has happened so close to the October election, he won't be on the campaign trail for the next week or so. Nevertheless, his supporters will be strengthened, seeing that his concerns are their concerns. (INN)

he NY State Democratic committee sent out a mailer targeted to heavily Orthodox Jewish communities suggesting that Governor Cuomo’s rival in the upcoming Democratic primary, Cynthia Nixon is anti- Semitic and supports the radical BDS movement. The irony to the story is, Nixon is raising both of her children Jewish, belongs to a modern synagogue & has never declared support for BDS. Cuomo who controls and helps fund the NY State Democratic committee denounced the mailer and denied having anything to do with it, however he refuses to fi e Geoff Berman, the committee's executive director who also denied having knowledge of the mailer before it went out but declined to say who authorized it, according to Democrat and Chronical of Albany. Cuomo called the mailer a "mistake" and "inappropriate." "I don't deploy those negative tactics and I don't want the Democratic Party to," Cuomo told reporters Sunday in Manhattan. The mailer, which was sent to heavily Orthodox Jewish communities prominently featured a photo of Nixon while noting "anti-Semitism and bigotry (is) on the rise" and saying she

It also states she is against “funding Yeshivas” The other side of the mailer touted Cuomo’s support for the Jewish community, noting he is "standing against anti-Semitism." As of press, nobody has come forward to authorizing this campaign literature. "I am incredibly angry and sad that Governor Cuomo and his officia New York State Democratic Party would engage in the kind of Trump-style divide and conquer tactics at a time when we need to come together," Nixon said in a statement.

side for being known as the worst terror attack in American history, 9-11 also became a symbol of unity and comradery in New York City. People from different paths in life, from different parties and different social standing stood together, lending each other a hand. Seventeen years after the savage terror attack on American soil, in which more than 2,700 New Yorkers tragically lost their lives, politicians and their allies are back to the discord and name-calling. Politicians and their allies are being criticized for failing to consecrate this day. “It is unconscionable that on a day we mourn and remember the sacrifice of so many, anyone would choose to engage in politics,” said Delaney Kempner, spokesperson for Public Advocate Letitia James. As reported by the NY Post, James did not run ads on Tuesday, and says she was appalled that her opponent in the race for Attorney General, Sean Patrick Maloney did. Maloney aired his usual ads on NYC television, slandering President Trump. On Tuesday morning, Cynthia Nixon, who is running for governor, also aired her biographical ad. Nixon defended her decision to do so. “We are

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who attended the 9/11 ceremony, made it a point not run ads on Tuesday. Still, critics point out that the subway workers union, TWU Local 100, which is a close ally of his, remained on the prowl, printing new flyers attacking Nixon’s celebrity status, with pictures of her on the red carpet near President Trump. The union took to Twitter boasting about the new ad, “We have a new flyer. It makes a point about inexperience — voters should beware of it in their leaders.” A 9/11 recovery worker and activist expressed his concern to the Post. “If an elected official who’s on the campaign trail See NY Primary Candidates Slammed , page B11

en Horn slapped down $158 million for the ability to build a tower in the Upper West Side. Th purchase will give him the site currently occupied by the West End Collegiate Church. The New York Post reports that “the buildings include the former unaffiliated Collegiate School at 260 to 262 W. 78th St. and the adjoining 378 West End Ave., which was used by the school. The low-rise church itself at 245 W. 77th St. was dedicated in 1892 and is a Dutch and Flemish Renaissance-style landmark.” The plans would call for the demolishment of the school building. The undergoing required some precautions that would ensure it would get the okay from the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. In its place would be a condominium project designed by CookFox. The tower would be 19 stories tall and even have additions that would make it connect right into a building on West End Avenue. Horn is the president of Alchemy Properties, which is already taking on a noteworthy project downtown. It is converting the historic Woolworth Building tower into residential units. He partnered up with Daishin Securities for this project, an investment fi m based out of South Korea. This Upper West Side deal will be the fi st one Daishin Se-

curities completes in the United States. Daishin actually tried to bid for the property until it decided it would be better to drop the attempt and team up with Horn. “We’ve become fairly good at working out transactions with not-for-profits,” Horn said last week after the deal was closed. Horn had nothing but good things to say about Collegiate Asset Management and its president, Casey Kemper. Kemper was responsible for making sure the sales process went smoothly. A Collegiate School in 2015 made $45 million when it sold those buildings to CAM. Th deal also ensured that the school would enter into a lease agreement while it was in the process of relocating. At the start of next

year, it will move to 301 Freedom Place South in midtown. CAM needed to make sure it had the air rights too, which netted $29 million for the church after it sold of its air rights. also spent $29 million to buy the church’s air rights for the new project. The new building will be fille with amenities like squash and maybe even a swimming pool. There will also be a gym and playground for kids, with 20,000 square feet of space devoted to amenities. Horn has had to work with nonprofits on a number of transactions in the past, like when he needed the air rights from Xavier High School before the school moved to its current new facility.

es Moonves has stepped down as the chairman, president and CEO of CBS, after 12 women accused him of sexual misconduct that spanned decades in two reports published in The New Yorker.

The second story features 6 more women making serious claims of harassment CBS made the announcement in a statement on Sunday, saying that Moonves' departure was "effective immediately." Th company's chief operating officer, Joseph Ianniello, will serve as president and acting CEO until a permanent replacement is found, according to the statement, NPR reported. The second bombshell story by New Yorker magazine writer Ronan Farrow is quite harrowing. One of the most shocking allegations come from Jessica Pallingston and Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb. Both told the New Yorker that Moonves physically forced them into performing oral sex on him. Golden-Gottlieb says she was assaulted in 1986, when Moonves drove her to a quiet area under the pretext of going to lunch and “grabbed my head, and he took it all

He offered Pallingston wine, and then kissed her, she claims, before asking her to perform oral sex on him. She also says that he pushed her head onto his penis in a “very violent, very aggressive”, according to the New Yorker Expose. Deborah Green, a makeup

artist who worked for CBS, says she was never again hired by the print-and-publicity department after she rebuked advances made by Moonves, according to the Farrow piece. Another woman, Deborah Morris, who worked at Lorimar with Moonves, says that when he made advances toward her and allegedly tried to assault her one night, she fought back, running from his vehicle to get away from him. After that incident, she says she was kept out of meetings, and she said that her career was ruined. “That was pretty much the end of my career,” Morris said. “I wasn’t going to get a reference.” New Yorker writer Ronan Farrow fi st wrote about Moonves in July. The fi st article chronicled six women who accused Les Moonves of sexual misconduct who worried about retaliation and loss of reputation. Farrow says he spent eight months investigating the story published in the New Yorker in July, The Jewish Voice reported. The fi st article said six women who had professional dealings with Moonves say he sexually harassed them between the 1980s and late 2000s. Four of the women described forcible touching or kissing during business meetings, it says, while two said that Moonves physically intimidated them or threatened to derail their careers.

Staten Island “Wheel” May Be Shelved; DeBlas Admin Refuses to Provide Funding By Jared Evan

T

he giant Ferris wheel project which has been trying to get off the ground since 2012, may soon end up forgotten and buried. The de Blasio administration has decided not to help fin nce the giant Ferris wheel planned for Staten Island, meaning the developers must fund the pricey project entirely with private money or forfeit the right to build, Crain’s reported. "Despite many recent conversations with the wheel developer, we remain convinced that public funds are too scarce and valuable to be leveraged for this venture," an Economic Development Corp. spokesman said in a statement. "If the developer can identify private funds to finish the project, we remain supportive." The project, originally budgeted at $230 million, has been repeatedly stalled due cost overruns, delays and disputes between investors. Work on the New York Wheel stopped completely May of 2017 when the main contractor on halted work and was fi ed, The Jewish Voice previously reported. The city believes the project is too risky mainly because there is no guarantee that the ridership will generate enough income to pay off the debt associated

with the project. It is currently estimated as a costly project at around $590 million. The Jewish Voice reported in November of 2017, that brave plans to build the world’s tallest Ferris wheel in the North Shore of Staten Island were expected to help turn the St. George Ferry Terminal into a bustling tourist destination, however the price tag for this huge development kept rising. TVJ reported that the project had run into unexpected expenditures which are common for an endeavor of its size. Then a dispute between dispute with the wheel’s former contractor, Mammoet-Starneth, ground the project to a halt and bled into a Delaware bankruptcy court. The developers said in a state-

ment they are still committed to pursuing the project, and that the city’s statement took them off guard, according to Crain’s. “The New York Wheel developers were disappointed and surprised by EDC’s defin tive statement about the wheel’s proposed fin nce plan,” a spokeswoman of New York Wheel LLC said in a statement. The proposal got a glimmer of hope in May when New York Wheel LLC, the company behind the project, reached an agreement with the contractor, Mammoet-Starneth, to resolve some of their legal disputes.

His biography details how “it was in college that Dell found the niche that would become his boom. Th PC world was still young and Dell realized that no company had tried selling directly to customers. Bypassing the middleman and the markups, Dell tapped his savings account for $1,000 and started building and selling computers for people he knew at college. His emphasis, however, wasn't just on good machines, but strong customer support and cheaper prices. Soon, he had accounts outside of school and it wasn't long before Dell dropped out and focused all his efforts on his business.” He started to see all sorts of success early on. Back in 1984, Dell's fi st full year in business, he had $6 million in sales. By 2000, Dell could already call himself a billionaire and the owner of a company spanning many countries and employing more than 35,000 people. Th following year, Dell Computer became the largest PC maker in the world when it passed Compaq Computer, according to his biography.

New York City Officially Tops London as World Financial Center By: Amanda Waldron

N

ew York is now the biggest fin ncial center in the world, according to a survey that came out this week indicating how attractive the city has become. New York’s high standing was aided by the expectations that Britain will leave the European Union, which has caused a change in where banks want to anchor themselves and do most of their business, The New York Post reports. The so-called Brexit creates a situation that the City of London’s fin nce industry hasn’t seen since the 2007-2009 fin ncial crisis, leaving it in a tough spot as anxieties grow. The biggest problem here is that exiting the European Union could lead to banks and insurers not being able to tap into that trading bloc. New York was at the top of the heap in fi st place after London fell, losing eight points in the rankings in just the past six months alone mostly thanks to these Brexit anxieties and uncertainties. Hong Kong and Singapore come next in the list of best places acting as global fin ncial centers. The rankings in use are an index known as the Z/Yen global fin ncial centers index, which ranks the top 100 places based on factors like quality of life and quality of infrastructure. “We are getting closer and closer to exit day and we still

don’t know whether London will be able to trade with all the other European fin ncial centers,” Mark Yeandle, the co-creator of the index, told Reuters. “The fear of losing business to other centers is driving the slight decline and people are concerned about London’s competitiveness.” Big fin nce companies didn’t waste much time in starting to relocate their staff in order to try and get ahead of the potential problems caused by being shut out of the bloc. A study by Reuters from the spring found that about 5,000 jobs would probably be shifted or created in the European Union from London before the time of the expected exit date, which would be around March of next year. The head of the City of Lon-

don fin ncial district has a very pessimistic outlook though having said back in July that 3,500 to 12,000 fin ncial jobs could go down the tubes as a result of the decision to leave the European Union, according to The New York Post. The climate is just right for banks to want to start considering to move into subsidiaries of the European Union, which is why a lot of major western banks are expected to expand in Frankfurt, Paris, or Dublin. “London and New York have long vied for the top spot of this index and the uncertainty around the future shape of Brexit is likely to be factor in their latest switch in positions,” Miles Celic, chief executive of the lobbying group TheC tyUK said.

One Dagg Hammarskjold j Plaza to Be Sold for $600 Million By: Ruth Livolsi

T

he 49-story offic tower at One Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, is poised to be sold for almost $600 million, according to The New York Post. Rockpoint Group, a Boston-based company that owns Starrett City, is in contract to buy the tower, according to sources who spoke to The New York Post. The New York Post describes the tower as being black and in the shape of an L-shaped. Th odd name for the plaza on which it sits is located in Midtown East. The building that was designed by Emery Roth and developed by Lawrence Ruben in 1974 had never been sold before, The New York Post reports. Richard Ruben, chief executive of the Ruben Cos., sold 1700 Broadway to Rockpoint for $453.million back in the winter. It’s unusual for Ruben Cos. to sell off any of its wholly owned properties, which includes all types of real estate throughout the Northeast in major cities.

Hudson Yards May Be Most Valuable Park Real Estate By: John Parker

N

ew York wants to throw in an additional $374 million in order to bolster and add to a green space that’s located near Hudson Yards, the megaproject on the western fringes of midtown and right on top of rail tracks. Crain’s reports that the high price tag isn’t just an illusion because the acreage would cost more than $124 million per acre, which would make this project the most expensive project related to parks in this city. Mayor Bill de Blasio last month allowed the project to move ahead. He signaled an okay for $500 million of bonds to be used by the corporation in charge of the park, which the city controls. Property tax revenue in the area is what is allowing the bonds to be backed. TheHudson Yards Infrastructure Corp. plans to use most of that money to work on a major phase that involves a park that runs through the Hudson Yards area and fits part of original design plans from 2005 that called for such a park. "Th t is an astounding price tag," said Adrian Benepe, one of Trust for Public Land’s senior vice president at the Trust for Public Land. Benepe is also a former park commissioner.

previous most-expensive park that I had ever heard of, which is the High Line." Tishman Speyer is getting involved in a big way by helping the park make the payments. Speyer gets the development rights at a planned tower in return for the help. The city has to acquire the land one way or the other, by enticing landowners with good buyouts or trying more forcefully remove them with eminent domain. Crain’s explained the rising costs as happening “since the idea for the park was hatched more than 10 years ago. However, the city insulated itself from the full extent of the neighbor-

hood's value increases by omitting future parcels from density bonuses granted to surrounding land, a property expert said.” Robert Knakal, a former Cushman & Wakefield investment sales broker, said that "in addition, these properties have all been under the threat of condemnation for years," adding that "for that reason, they are almost impossible to sell." City Hall said the park is currently being planned, and this is part of what the mayor has wanted for the Hudson Yards area, more green space of how densely populated Hudson See Hudson Yards May , page B11

oldman Sachs Group Inc is getting cold feet and abandoning its idea to start trading cryptocurrency as the publicly traded bank remains spooked by the lack of a regulatory framework for cryptocurrency, Business Insider reports, citing people familiar with the matter. Executives at Goldman Sachs spent part of the past few weeks deciding that it was too early to get in on the cryptocurrency trade without all of the regulations that would give the bank the type of control it would need to be allowed to trade stocks like Bitcoin, according to Business Insider. “At this point, we have not reached a conclusion on the scope of our digital asset offering,� Goldman Sachs spokesperson Michael DuVally said to Reuters. The news caused a number of the cryptocurrency stocks dropping sharply, with Bitcoin dropping almost 5 percent which continued its skid to $6,985 on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange. The bank showed it was still expressing interest in cryptocurrencies back in last October, back when then-Chief Executive Office Lloyd Blankfein tweeted, “still thinking about Bitcoin.

No conclusion–not endorsing/ rejecting. Know that folks also were skeptical when paper money displaced gold.� Blankfein’s tweet showed that Goldman had a very different mindset from that of JPMorgan Chase & Co CEO Jamie Dimon, who thinks bitcoin is a “fraud.� Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman falls more on the side of the cryptocurrencies, saying that the sector is “more than just a fad.� Bitcoin is an electronic currency. It’s set up in a way that can keep the identities of people anonymous, which has made it an attractive currency on the black market. It’s also easy to

move money quickly. The currency is also particularly different because it doesn’t center around a bank or government. Bitcoin stock does continue to look attractive to investors, having hit it’s all-time high of $16,000 back in the final month of 2017.

She claimed that she had Jewish lineage and that she

was also an immigrant from Colombia, but was actually found to have been born in Miami. Following an interview with Tablet Magazine, Salazar also admitted that neither of her parents are Jewish, adding that she started identifying with Jews in college and underwent a conversion. She has also been accused of posing as a left wing, social democratic Jew for political gain. Following Salazar’s claims, Keyes said in a statement: “This false accusation is made by someone who has proven to be repeatedly dishonest about her own life. This is yet another example of her dishonesty.� However, Raice later corroborated Salazar’s claims saying that she “also had a terrible encounter with David Keyes once and 100% believe her. I knew this would come out about him at some point.� She said that Keyes “had absolutely no conception of the word ‘no.’ No matter how often I said no, he would not stop pushing himself on me. “I was able to extricate myself quickly and it was a very brief and uncomfortable moment but I knew as I walked away I had encountered a predator,� Raice wrote.

Poll: Most Palestinians Mistrust Trump, Oppose Dialogue with US The majority of Palestinian respondents in a new poll oppose resuming dialogue with the Trump administration, with antipathy for the US on the rise. By: WIN Staff

A

ccording to a poll published by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research on Wednesday, 90 percent of Palestinian respondents believe US bias favors Israel, with just 6 percent deeming the US an “honest broker.� The poll’s results refle t responses from 1,270 people in Judea and Samaria and the Gaza Strip, with a margin of error of 3 percentage points. In addition to revealing widespread perception of bias among Palestinians, the poll also demonstrated that 62 percent of those surveyed oppose resuming dialogue between the Palestinian leadership and the Trump Administration. The poll’s responses track with statements and actions by Palestinian leaders such as Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, who has boycotted the Trump administration since the US announced its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and subsequently moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Trump administration has increasingly reacted to Palestinian rejection of the US’ role

Last week, Trump declared that the Palestinians would receive no further funding unless they returned to the negotiating table, while this week the administration announced it would shutter the Palestinians’ diplomatic headquarters in

Washington, since the facility is not being used for its stated purpose of pursuing the peace process with Israel. “Anything that’s coming from the Americans is not going to be supported by the Palestinians,� said pollster Khalil Shikaki according to AP. Shikaki was apparently referring to Trump’s as-yet unreleased deal-of-thecentury peace plan. Among the poll’s other key findi gs were that 56 percent of those questioned said a twostate solution to the confli t is “no longer practical or feasible due to the expansion of Israeli� communities in Judea and Samaria.

In April, just weeks before the United States relocated its mission to Jerusalem, Zeman announced a three-stage plan to rejig the central European state's stance on the holy city, which ended in moving its embassy there. However local media had reported that Prime Minister Andrej Babis was less keen on such a move, particularly because it would involve defying the consensus European Union position on the city's status.

Riding with the Breslovs: Chaos and Spirituality on a Pilgrimage to Uman By: Ilanit Chernick

I

t was a scramble, you almost had to hustle to get onto the bus there were so many people. As I walked up the stairs, I found myself caught in the sea of black. Feeling mildly out of place in my denim skirt and Yankees cap. The e was almost this feeling of organized chaos bubbling below the surface as we headed towards Ben-Gurion Airport. Th entire bus was filled with Breslov Hasidim heading to Uman in the Ukraine. For Breslov Hasidim, the pilgrimage to Uman plays a massive role in the way that Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish new year – is celebrated as they pray at the grave of Rabbi Nachman who founded the Breslov movement, and who is also the grandson of the Baal Shem Tov – the founder of Hasidic Judaism.

For Breslov Hasidim, the pilgrimage to Uman plays a massive role in the way that Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish new year – is celebrated as they pray at the grave of Rabbi Nachman who founded the Breslov movement, and who is also the grandson of the Baal Shem Tov – the founder of Hasidic Judaism.

As the bus rolled on, I heard a young man shout out in agony – he’d just broken a tooth. “This is terrible timing – does anyone have a tylenol or a painkiller… The dentists in Kiev are probably awful.”

singing here and there, a buzz of excitement in the air. As we arrived at Ben-Gurion’s Terminal 3, everyone clambered off the bus hurriedly. I continued to walk and chat with the young man who said that “Uman was

There was almost this feeling of organized chaos bubbling below the surface as we headed towards Ben-Gurion Airport. The entire bus was filled with Breslov Hasidim heading to Uman in the Ukraine.

“I’m going to New York”, “I’m fl ing to Hungary to catch a fli ht to Uman,” and a group even started arguing over whether the white “Na Nach” kippah one man was wearing, was dirty. “You can’t go to Uman looking like a schlump (Yiddish

for someone who is sloppily or poorly dressed).” “He has a small mark on the kippah, it’s not a big deal, he can,” responded another. After almost half an hour, the young man I was with looked down at his paper and up at the departure boards. “My fli ht isn’t here,” he said looking worried. I took the piece of paper out of his hands, looking at him solemnly. “You’ve missed your fli ht,” I said. “It’s was at 4:50 a.m., not 4:50 p.m.” His face drops. I ask: “What now?” “I’m going! I will buy another ticket – I’m not missing this for the world,” he says nonchalantly. “So you’re just going to buy another ticket, just like that? Isn’t it expensive,” I question. “No, I’m going – that’s it,” as he pulls out his laptop and starts searching for a new ticket. We part ways and I notice a camera crew from one of the news outlets filmi g the lines and scenes around us. As a group of young, vibrant and almost silly boys walk past – all in white kippot, they shout loudly with naughty smiles on their face: “Hertzel! Hertzel,” referencing a video of a news report at the Western Wall that was interrupted, which went viral earlier this year. While photographing the various groups of Breslovs waiting to check-in, I call to a group of Hasidim who start posing as I take photos. I ask their names,

I continued to walk and chat with the young man who said that “Uman was the greatest experience.” each respond: “Nachman; Nachman; Nachman; Nachman.” “Wait, your names are all Nachman?” I ask. “Yes, that’s why we are going to Uman. We are going to pray to our name sake – to ask him to petition God on our behalf for the things we may need and pray for this Rosh Hashanah,” says the fi st Nachman. “There’s no end – there’s only prayer. God is eternal – Rabbi Nachman’s teachings show us this,” says the second. “It’s a very spiritual experience – you must go one day, you will see,” says the third, while the fourth Nachman nods in agreement. As I continue to walk around, two men shake plastic cups in my face, asking for help to pay for their tickets to Uman. “We have to go, there is no other choice – it is the will of Rabbi Nachman and we go each year to petition him. It’s a spiritual journey where all Jews come together, pray together and love God together,” one of the men said. (TPS)

Trump: No More Palestinian Aid Unless Deal is Struck with Israel In a conference call with community leaders in the US in honor of the Jewish New Year, Trump communicated that the Palestinians wouldn’t receive any additional funding until they reach an agreement with Israel. By: WIN Staff

L

ast Thursday, President Donald Trump told Jewish leaders that the Palestinians would not receive any more aid from the US, unless they made a deal with Israel. Trump made the remarks during a conference call placed in anticipation of the Jewish New Year in which the president communicated with a number of American Jewish leaders. Trump’s remarks arrive on the heels of his administration’s decision to cut funds both to the Palestinians’ dedicated UN agency, UNRWA, and direct aid to the Palestinians. To that end, Trump noted during the conference call that the funding would only be reinstated if the Palestinians reach an agreement with the Jewish state. “What I will tell you is I stopped massive amounts of money that we were paying to the Palestinians and the Palestinian leaders,” Trump said in a recording of the call aired by “What I will tell you is I stopped massive amounts of money that we were paying to the Palestinians and the Palestinian leaders,”

In response to a question posed by legal expert and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, Trump responded, “I don’t think it’s disrespectful at all” to use aid as a tool to incentivize the Palestinians to negotiate. “I think it’s disrespectful when people don’t come to the table,” he added, according to a

transcript published by Jewish Insider. Trump said: "I said to some of the past negotiators. 'Did you ever do that before? Did you ever use the money angle?' Th y said, 'No, sir. We thought it would be disrespectful.' I said, 'I don't think it's disrespectful at all. I think it's disrespectful when people don't come to the table.'"

LETTERS

TO THE EDITOR Cataclysmic Danger Ahead Dear Editor: I don’t know if you’ve felt them but we’ve had many warnings of a major catastrophic human-made earthquake that threatens the foundations of our 242 year old existence as a free nation. The needle on the political Richter Scale started shaking after the 2000 election of George W. Bush. The rumblings began with the Democrats contesting the 527 vote Florida game changing presidential win by Bush over Gore that eventually was confirmed by a recount. But thereafter, Bush was for his eight more years in the White House referred to and treated by the Left as America’s first sitting “Non-President.” Then we suffered the rattling election of Barack Obama, whose active membership in a White, Jewish, America hating church was well known to the electorate. His close, personal relationship with the likes of his adored Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan was no secret. Obama was open about his goals. He told us he was out to “Fundamentally transform America” and the world. He did, with racial unrest, blacks against whites, attacks against law enforcement, hatred against people of wealth, the cover-up of Muslim hate crimes, the admittance of millions of illegals, the deliberate condemnations of our nation’s

history, the “Arab Spring” that turned the Middle East into a raging inferno of destruction and death, the support to the terrorist nation of Iran and the eight year unsuccessful effort to undermine the Jewish State of Israel. Worrisome tremblings, indeed. Perhaps the most significant recent shudder came in the current Senate hearings for the appointment of a new Supreme Court justice. The well planned observer shoutouts requiring the dragging out of the violent demonstrators for the whole world to see and then the coordinated Democrat disruption from their official seats indicated a massive threat to our liberties. We have no control of nature. Earthquakes, volcanoes, storms and tsunamis are generated by earth’s forces. But the undermining rattling of our halls of justice, our Constitution, and our liberties for which so many have sacrificed their lives is occurring because we are permitting it to happen. Our willful ignoring, of closing our eyes to the ground swelling, shaking, warning signals of calamity, growing not only in frequency but in intensity will result in the irreparable cracks in the foundations of our liberties and freedom. The next shock may be coming soon. Sincerely Alan Bulwarky

Cuomo Allowing Pedophiles to Vote??? Dear Editor: Pedophiles and Sex Offenders for Cuomo? Governor Cuomo’s executive order to allow 24,000 parolees including sex offenders and pedophiles the right to cast a vote at your local polling place makes no sense. Why take the risk of exposing parents and children to potential harm? There is a simple solution to

afford these people voting rights while at the same time protecting parents and children. Let all 24,000 parolees request an absentee ballot like thousands of other citizens do and vote by mail. Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck

Shocked About Hochul Endorsement Dear Editor: I was kind of shocked at your papers endorsement of Kathy Hochul for LT Governor of NYS as she is fully supportive of Governor Cuomo progressive agenda as noted in her campaign ads. Also I was shocked as to the reason given for your endorsement as it indicated support for some of her left wing

policy positions. As your newspaper totes itself as a conservative voice in the Jewish community and for the most part lives up to that expectation. But seems to fall short in this situation. Sincerely Alan Fenster Kew Garden Hills

Artificial Intelligence Jobs Increasing Dear Editor, The number of job postings featuring “artificial intelligence” or “machine learning” in their description has doubled since 2015, which shouldn’t be too surprising. The great news though is that it’s not just the west coast that will continue getting in on this action with places like Silicon Valley. It appears that a lot of these job interests are coming from right here in New York. Samsung just announced the opening of an A.I research center in the city, for example.

Maybe this emerging industry could help pull underprivileged kids out of poverty by giving them the opportunities to work in these cutting-edge industries and show that the city can still be a manufacturing powerhouse even in the 21st century. Let’s hope that these jobs keep pouring in and that these companies wind up being good neighbors and give back to the community. Sincerely, Margaret Jacobsen

Denounces Cuomo’s “Anti-Semitism” Ploy Dear Editor: The New York State Democratic Committee has a lot of explaining to do after it sent out a mailer targeted to heavily Orthodox Jewish communities suggesting that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s rival to the left in the upcoming Democratic primary, Cynthia Nixon, is anti-Semitic and supports the radical BDS movement. Cuomo who controls and helps fund the NY State Democratic committee denounced the mailer and denied having anything to do with it, but that’s where the problems start. He should have denounced the mailers in no ambiguous terms and taken responsibility. People have been kicking around the blame for something that should just be put to rest. These attacks are ugly and play on people’s

worst fears, making it particularly disgusting. Jews, especially Orthodox Jews, face very real threats from anti-Semitism and have for as long as Jews have been around, To play on those real fears as a cheap way to smear an opponent as anti-Semitic is beyond just gutter politics but can damage our public discourse, trust of each other, and understanding of anti-Semitism and hatred. The irony to the story is, Nixon is raising both of her children Jewish, belongs to a modern synagogue & has never declared support for BDS, but none of that seemed to matter to the people who put together that mailer for cheap political points.

Nike: The Social Justice Slave Labor Shoe that Hates America Nike’s new romance with an America-hating racist By: Daniel Greenfield

I

t’s a bad time for bad sneakers. Nike sales have seen their slowest growth in seven years. It was the worst performing Dow stock of 2016. Americans don’t seem to want badly made overpriced shoes put together by slave labor. The failing company tried to turn around its poor sales by doubling down on its abrasive lefty politics. Nike’s Consumer Direct Offense was supposed to stand for reclaiming American market share, instead of directly offending consumers. But if Nike can’t sell its shoddy athletic wear, it can offend Americans. Last winter, Nike unveiled the “Pro Hijab”. Now it decided to make Colin Kaepernick, the racist black nationalist who began the trend of protesting the national anthem, into the face of its Just Do It campaign. Nike’s new contract with its America-hating racist will rush out Kaepernick shoes and jerseys. No word on whether Kaepernick’s socks showing police offic s as pigs will also be part of the package. Nike will pay Kaepernick millions every year with a deal that looks like those of “topend” NFL players. Actually being a top-end player or having the talent to be one is surplus to social justice requirements.

The huge payday for Kaepernick clashes with Just Do It’s new tagline, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrifici g everything.” Making millions of dollars for hating America without having to ever get out there and play is the opposite of “sacrifici g everything.” It’s getting paid for doing nothing. Unlike the hundreds of women working in a Cambodian factory that supplies Nike (among other companies) who passed out as temperatures reached nearly 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Over three days, 360 female workers passed out after working ten hour days with little food at punishing temperatures. Nike’s Code of Conduct allows girls as young as 16 to work in factories. But they may be even younger. At one Nike supplier, “workers routinely collapsing unconscious at their work stations from overwork and excessive heat, then being forced to return to work minutes after waking up” were observed. Just don’t pass out. Nike’s Asian slave labor force actually sacrifices everything. And the proceeds go to Nike executives and millionaire racists like Kaepernick who invoke the historical memory of slavery even as they profi from real life slavery. Kaepernick had compared the police to runaway

slave patrols and his latest NFL deal fell through after his girlfriend had compared the owner of the Baltimore Ravens to a slave master. But the truth about slavery can be found in Colin Kaepernick making millions from Nike slave labor.

cle of millionaire athletes lecturing a working class audience about equality and racism didn’t do anything for Nike’s brand or its sales. But it also foreshadowed its Kaepernick deal with its transparently fake efforts to glamorize millionaire athletes as civil rights figu es. And athletic wear made by sweatshop workers as the costume of civil rights heroes.

The huge payday for Colin Kaepernick clashes with Just Do It’s new tagline, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.” Making millions of dollars for hating America without having to ever get out there and play is the opposite of “sacrificing everything.” It’s getting paid for doing nothing.

Nike’s embrace of Kaepernick marks its transition away from sports and into social justice. It’s the same trajectory that crumbled ESPN and the NFL’s core business. And it’s not doing wonders for Nike. Its post-inauguration Grammy’s ad already took a dip into anti-American waters, demanding, "Is this the land history promised? " The bizarre specta-

“We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” Nike's VP of Brand Marketing Gino Fisanotti told ESPN. Colin Kaepernick is to sports what Nike is to conscious workers. Gino is signaling that Nike, like ESPN, is more interested in leftist politics, moving the

“world forward”, than in any of that yucky sports stuff But unlike the NFL and ESPN, Nike really isn’t in the sports business. It glamorized athleisure wear by making the illusion of sports performance accessible to everyone. But the brand is becoming dated. Nike retailer demand fell by 10% and it was forced to fi e 1,400 employees. Adidas’ Superstar sneakers outsold Nike’s fading Jordan brand kicking the swoosh company out of the top spot for the fi st time in a decade. Adidas sneakers rely on the celebrity power of Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. Nike’s Kaepernick deal is a shift away from sports stars to pop culture social justice stars. Adidas may have Kanye West, but Nike has Colin Kaepernick. Making a black nationalist icon into the face of its Just Do It campaign also conveys the fact that Nike isn’t really selling sports performance, but left celebs. Just Do It rolled out thirty years ago with Walt Stack: an 80-year-old who made a point of running 17 miles across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Now Nike has severed athletic performance from its brand which will instead embody the “courage” of left politics rather than physical perseverance. It’s been 15 years since fans have seen Michael Jordan play. An entire generation has come

of age for whom Air Jordan is a brand that’s disconnected from an actual person. Nike has decided that a lefty political celebrity may be a safer investment for millennials than the greatest basketball player of all time. It’s going to try and catch Adidas by turning Just Do It into a leftis revolutionary slogan. Nike has been battling slave labor charges with fake virtue signaling for a generation. Last year, Nike’s Mark Parker had declared that President Trump’s terror travel ban was a threat to Nike’s values, "Nike believes in a world where everyone celebrates the power of diversity." A world where everyone believes the same thing is as diverse as a bunch of people wearing Nikes. Much like Hollywood, sneaker sales in China matter more than they do in the United States. Nike has been declining in North America, but growing in China. And even in the American market, Nike is more concerned about the collegiate market, with its touchy lefty politics, than mainstream consumers. Its college contracts run well into the hundreds of millions. Tho e matter much more than Americans. 30 years after the launch of Just Do It, Nike’s ideal target audience has shifted dramatically. Nike has rightly calculated that See Nike: The Social Justice , page B11

A Classification System for Anti-Semites By: Harvey Rachlin

E

very day we read in the news or hear about one anti-Semitic act or another. Anti-Semites seem to be everywhere today but are they all the same? Anti-Semites come in all shades of horror and hostility, which is to say that not all anti-Semites are anti-Semitic equally. Some anti-Semites speak malevolently about Jews but limit their verbal haranguing to family and friends, while others maliciously disrupt Jewish events or vandalize Jewish property, while still others are rabid Jew-haters obsessively dedicated to wiping out Jews and Israel. Today, from neighborhoods to college campuses to government office and through the worldwide web, anti-Semitism is ubiquitous and takes many forms, each presenting a particular kind of danger to Jews and Israel. To this observer of anti-Semitism the wide spectrum of Jew-hating warrants a classific tion system of anti-Semites. Why categorize Jew-haters? A classific tion system gives a basic framework for identifying anti-Semites and provides an understanding of what kinds of anti-Semites they are, what kinds of threats they may represent, and how best to deal with them. It gives context and perspective and an order that can be used to make predictions or appraise escalations in threatening behav-

ior. It provides a sensibility to the whole abhorrent picture, which is comprised of everything from rogues and brainwashed people to college professors and everyday citizens. Of course, an anti-Semite classific tion system can be inaccurate or problematic for various reasons such as it is difficult to measure one’s degree of anti-Semitism or anti-Semites may not fit neatly into categories as they may be fluid and not limited to one type of anti-Semitic behavior, but as a general indicator for gauging and monitoring anti-Semites, a classific tion system or hierarchy of anti-Semitic behavior can, I believe, be beneficial for the reasons enumerated above. My classific tion system of anti-Semites breaks down into eleven categories, from most dangerous or threatening to Jews and Israel to least dangerous or threatening to Jews and Israel. The e is nothing scientific about my classific tions; they are based for the most part on my informal study of belligerent actions and malice toward Jews and Israel as I have observed though media reports. In fact, one may dispute my categories, from their constituents to their rankings, and that is fin . My primary intention in creating a classific tion system of anti-Semitism is to start a dialogue on a pecking order of Jew-haters and Israel-haters, and for people to try to understand anti-Semites in the context of their rankings and the dangers or

threats they present. Category I Anti-Semite: Annihilators. The e are countries, governments, state-run armed forces and terrorist organizations dedicated to destroying Israel. Th y

and suicide bombers are among the bloodthirsty constituents of this group. Anti-Semite terrorists use bombs, assault rifles, guns, vehicles, knives, stones—indeed, any kind of weapon—and move

endeavor to achieve their goal by the use of weapons of mass destruction and sundry other means of warfare. Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS are examples of Category I anti-Semites. Category II Anti-Semite: Terrorists. Murdering individual Jews or Jews in groups (this being more preferable), as well as creating widespread fear among Jews, is the goal of the anti-Semite terrorist. Militants, radical jihadists

stealthily, to carry out their attacks. Th y also endeavor to kidnap Israeli soldiers so they may make immense demands in exchange for them. So deeply embedded is their Jew-hatred that most are incorrigible and would gladly sacrifice their own lives in any mission to kill or harm Jews. Terrorists are often members of Category I anti-Semite entities and crave the annihilation of Israel.

Category III Anti-Semite: Sociopaths. Sociopath anti-Semites are virulent Jew-haters who kill, shoot, stab, assault, mug, beat, or harass Jews, as well as, perhaps, individuals of other ethnic minorities. Th y are psychologically disturbed individuals possessed of irrational hatred who may be loners or be part of hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan or white power skinhead groups. Th y have a pathological obsession with hating or harming Jews, as well as, perhaps, other minority individuals. Category IV Anti-Semite: leaders, political parties and inter-governmental organizations. Thiscategory includes everything from elected official to political parties in western and democratic nations, as well as international bodies such the United Nations. Anti-Semitic leadership can stir up violence toward Jews, and Jewish residents of countries or cities with anti-Semitic officia may live in fear. The United Nations has a long tradition of being overtly unfair in its treatment of Israel, and continually endeavors to shed a bad light on the Jewish state on the world stage. Category V Anti-Semite: Anti-Zionist Groups. The e are groups of radical, brainwashed and misguided individuals who accuse Israel of being an apartheid state and of committing genocide and other war crimes, among other alleged wrongdoings. Th y essentially advocate the delegitimization of Israel. This category includes such

groups as Students for Justice in Palestine and Boycott, Divestment Sanctions (BDS). Anti-Zionist groups are very harmful to Jews and Israel and the tactics they use can be brutal. Th y stridently disrupt speeches, engage in vociferous anti-Israel chants, scream slurs at Jewish people, intimidate Jewish students on college campuses, desecrate the Israeli flag, sponsor anti-Israel rallies, hold “die-ins.” Th y pressure divestment by universities, companies and other entities that invest in or support Israel. Th y encourage boycotts and sanctions of Israel. Th y pressure entertainers not to perform in Israel. Th y call for an end of American military aid to Israel. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East but of course, they do not castigate any other nation in the region. Members of these activist groups, some of whom are Jewish, and even some anti-Zionist activist groups composed primarily of Jews, often vehemently deny being anti-Semitic or take offense at such an accusation. But their actions, platform and vitriol are veritably anti-Israel and anti-Jewish. To paraphrase the old adage, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it must be a duck. Category VI Anti-Semite: Miscreants. This category anti-Semite does physical harm to Jewish property such as burglarizing, vandalizing or setting fi e See A Classifi ation System , page B12

Whyy Jews Now Find Themselves in the Eye of the Western Storm Only when the enormity of the Holocaust was finally revealed after the war did hatred of Jews become unsayable. It thus went underground— until the left’s adoption of the Palestinian narrative made it sayable again By: Melanie Phillips

A

nti-Semitism is now a major issue in the West. In Britain, there are continuing convulsions over rampant anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. In America, there was outrage over the presence of the virulent Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. In France and other European countries, Jews are under siege from violent Muslims. The really disturbing thing, though, is that so many are not outraged by this. For a troubling number of people, anti-Semitism is no longer considered a big deal. Either it is denied or minimized, as in Europe, or it is relegated down the pecking order of prejudices. Consider. The past few months have produced an apparently unstoppable stream of poisonous bigotry among Labour Party members and supporters directed at both Israel and Jewish people. The party’s far-left leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has himself been revealed time and again as not only supporting Israel’s terrorist attackers, but defaming Israel as wanton killers and racists. He also championed an obscene mural depicting hook-nosed Jews manipulating the world’s fin nces on the backs of the ex-

ploited poor. This crisis came to a head over the attempt by Corbyn and his acolytes to cherry-pick the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance defi nition of anti-Semitism. Th y wanted to junk its examples of anti-Semitism involving Israel, such as comparing it to the Nazis, calling it a racist state or accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel than their own countries. This week, the party final y decided to adopt the defin tion with all its examples. But it added a caveat defending “free expression” about Israel—which seemed to be an attempt to muddy the defin tion to enable members to continue to defame it. This caveat was itself a compromise drafted to ward off an attempt by Corbyn to allow members to label Israel’s policies or even its very existence as “racist.” Within hours of Corbyn thus declaring his hand, unauthorized posters were plastered on central London bus shelters, declaring “Israel is a racist endeavor.” Even after all this, however, polls suggest the British people remain unconvinced that the Labour Party is institutionally anti-Semitic. People are puzzled that the Jews are making such

a fuss. Why are they so thinskinned? they ask. In America, a similar moral myopia grips the left. Farrakhan, a Black Power demagogue who has praised Hitler, described Jews as “satanic” and called Judaism a “gutter religion,” was given a seat of honor at Franklin’s funeral alongside former President Bill Clinton.

Steve Bannon was on it (which, indeed, others threatened to do at an event to be staged by The New Yorker, as a result of which its editor pulled the plug on his planned Bannon interview at that event), fail to raise any objection to Farrakhan’s presence alongside them at the funeral? The answer is that, if there’s a clash between supporting Jews and supporting black people, the latter will always win—even if they say vile things about Jews. In Britain, too, it now appears,

The U.S. Jewish community erupted in fury and disgust. But the left didn’t see a problem. Why not? How could Clinton share a platform with such a man? How could all the other progressively minded folk there, the kind of people who would fl unce off a platform if, for example,

anti-Semitism is considered less important than anti-racism. In a recently surfaced 2013 video, Corbyn claimed that “Zionists” who objected to a speech by the Palestinian envoy to Britain at a meeting in London “don’t understand English irony,” even though they had “lived in this country for a very long time,

probably all their lives.” This suggestion that British Jews who supported Israel were not fully British was a classic and incendiary anti-Semitic trope. It provoked the former chief rabbi, Lord Sacks, into an unprecedented political intervention when he denounced Corbyn as “a dangerous anti-Semite.” The Labour leader’s video remarks were, said Sacks, the most offensive statement made by a senior politician since 1968, when the MP Enoch Powell made his infamous “rivers of blood” speech. This seminal diatribe attacked the presence of black people in Britain and thus ended Powell’s career. Corbyn’s “irony” remark, said Sacks, was “divisive, hateful and like Powell’s speech it undermines the existence of an entire group of British citizens by depicting them as essentially alien.” Yet Sacks himself was promptly attacked on the grounds that the sinister impact of Powell’s speech was in a totally different league from Corbyn’s remark. All this suggests a deep failure to understand the unique nature and signific nce of anti-Semitism as not only innately hateful, but murderous and a signature marker of profound irrationality. The e is, however, an even darker context for British indifference to anti-Semitism. Long-suppressed British government archive papers, recently disclosed to The Times of

London, have revealed that British prejudice towards Jews increased relentlessly during the Second World War. Confronted by reports of rising anti-Semitism, official decided that the Jews themselves were to blame because of their “inordinate attention to the possibilities of the ‘black market’ and a lack of pleasant standards of conduct as evacuees.” Only when the enormity of the Holocaust was final y revealed after the war did hatred of Jews become unsayable. It thus went underground—until the left’s adoption of the Palestinian narrative made it sayable again. Now the Arabs who want to wipe out Israel are regarded falsely and grotesquely as the victims of the Jews. As a result, western anti-Semites are once again licensed to treat Jews with disgust. Because Israelis take up arms to defend themselves against extermination and thus kill some of their attackers, they are viewed as aggressors. Jews can only be considered victims if they are passive, helpless and, above all, dead. Since relatively few Israelis are being killed, they are said to be up to the Jews’ habitual trick of claiming to be victims in order to manipulate the world to their advantage. Israelis are thus presented obsessively, falsely and malevSee Why Jews Now Find , page B11

I have repeatedly introduced legislation requiring the office closure, and recently sent a letter to the administration emphasizing that the offic was operating illegally and calling for it to be closed.

Faith & Fasting: A Look Continued from page 32 anity, the purpose of fasting is to achieve mastery of spirit over body. Today, many churches are integrating it into their worship, especially in January, to begin the new year through fasting and prayer. The “Daniel Fast” involves dietary modific tions like a purified vegan diet—eating unlimited fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds and oil while eliminating refined foods, white fl ur, preservatives, additives, sweeteners, fl vorings, caffeine and alcohol. It is derived from the biblical story of Daniel (1:8-14) in which he resolved not to defil

himself with the royal food and wine, and requested permission to consume nothing but vegetables and water for 10 days. Later in the book (10:2-3), Daniel again observed a 21-day period of fasting, during which time he had no meat or wine. “Because individuals traditionally follow the ‘Daniel Fast’ for strict religious purposes to become closer to God during a time of extended prayer, findi gs have indicated excellent compliance,” said Bloomer. Bloomer believes that while fasting is often a time of spiritual growth, it can also improve one’s physical health. He said investigations examining the health-relat-

”It Can Be Done" – 75 Years Since the Rescue of Denmark’s Jews By: Rafael Medoff

A

s the final minutes of Rosh Hashana ticked away, thirteen yearold Leo Goldberger was hiding, along with his parents and three brothers, in the thick brush along the shore of Dragor, a small fishi g village south of Copenhagen. The year was 1943, and the Goldbergers, like thousands of other Danish Jews, were desperately trying to escape an imminent Nazi round-up. "Finally, after what seemed like an excruciatingly long wait, we saw our signal offshore," Goldberger later recalled. "We strode straight into the ocean and waded through three or four feet of icy water until we were hauled aboard a fishing boat" and "covered with smelly canvases." Shivering, frightened, but grateful, the Goldberger family soon found themselves in the safety and freedom of neighboring Sweden. For years, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and other Allied leaders had insisted that nothing could be done to rescue Jews from the Nazis except to win the war. But seventy-five years ago this week, the Danish people exploded that myth and changed history. When the Nazis occupied Denmark in 1940, the Danes put up little resistance. As a result, the German authorities agreed to let the Danish government continue functioning with

greater autonomy than other occupied countries. Th y also postponed taking steps against Denmark’s 8,000 Jewish citizens. In the late summer of 1943, amid rising tensions between the occupation regime and the Danish government, the Nazis declared martial law and decided the time had come to deport Danish Jews to the death camps. But Georg Duckwitz, a German diplomat in Denmark, leaked the information to Danish friends. (Duckwitz was later honored by Yad Vashem as one of the Righteous Among the Nations.) As word of the Germans' plans spread, the Danish public responded with a spontaneous nationwide grassroots effort to help the Jews. The Danes' remarkable response gave rise to the legend that King Christian X himself rode through the streets of Copenhagen on horseback, wearing a yellow Star of David, and that the citizens of the city likewise donned the star in solidarity with the Jews. Thestory may have had its origins in a political cartoon that appeared in a Swedish newspaper in 1942. It showed King Christian pointing to a Star of David and declaring that if the Nazis imposed it upon the Jews of Denmark, "then we must all wear the star." Leon Uris's novel Exodus, and the movie based on that book, helped spread the legend. But subsequent investigations by historians have concluded that the story is a myth.

A MIDNIGHT ESCAPE

On Rosh Hashana and the days that follow, numerous Danish Christian families hid Jews in their homes or farms and then smuggled them to the seashore late at night. From there, fishe men took them across the Kattegat Straits to neighboring Sweden.

so that students could assist the smugglers. More than 7,000 Danish Jews reached Sweden and were sheltered there until the end of the war. Esther Finkler, a young newlywed, was hidden, together with her husband and their mothers, in a greenhouse. “At night, we saw the [German]

This cartoon by Arie Navon appeared in the Hebrew-language daily newspaper Davar on October 13, 1943. Navon contrasted the rescue of Denmark’s Jews with the farcical refugee conference that the Allies staged earlier that year in Bermuda. The title of the cartoon is a Hebrew word that means both “lifeguards” and “rescuers.” The lifeguards, one smoking a Churchill-style pipe, and the other wearing Roosevelt-style glasses, are standing next to an unused life preserver labeled “Bermuda.” The scrawny man diving into the swastikainfested ocean to rescue a drowning person is labeled “Sweden.” (Reprinted from the book Cartoonists Against the Holocaust, by Rafael Medoff and Craig Yoe.)

This three-week rescue operation had the strong support of Danish church leaders, who used their pulpits to urge aid to the Jews, as well as Danish universities, which shut down

Soon we heard him shouting in German toward a passing Nazi patrol boat: ‘Wollen sie einen beer haben? ’ (Would you like a beer? )—a clever gimmick designed to avoid the Germans’ suspicions. After three tense hours at sea, we heard shouting: ‘Get up! Get up! And welcome to Sweden!’ It was hard to believe, but we were now safe. We cried and the Swedes cried with us as they escorted as ashore. The nightmare was over,” Esther recalled.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2018 London transportation officials and the advertising agency that typically sells the spaces where the posters went up said that the posters in Westminster, Elephant and Castle, Bloomsbury and Waterloo Bridge constitute “vandalism” and vowed to have them removed immediately.

"Smarter Bombs": Understanding The World of Women Palestinian Bombers Written: by Anat Berko Reviewed by: Abigail Esman for IPT

T

here was Muneira, who planned to blow herself up at a hospital near Tel Aviv. The e was Jemilla, who escorted a young boy to his suicide bombing at a market; he was excited he soon would be meeting girls in Paradise. And there was Sabiha, who prepared explosives and trained other women to do the same. With courage and compassion, Anat Berko, a criminologist and member of the Foreign Aff irs and Defense Committee of Israel's Knesset, interviewed them all. Their stories, and the insights they provide into the motives and lives of female suicide bombers, fill the pages of Th Smarter Bomb: Women and Children as Suicide Bombers, newly released in paperback. Th ugh fi st published in 2012, the release of a new edition underscores the difficult, ongoing challenges suicide bombers pose, and the continued efforts to understand the relatively new phenomenon of women suicide bombers and the role of women in violent jihad. Berko spent 15 years visiting Palestinian women in Israeli jails, gradually developing relationships that, if they could not be described as "friendships," were built on mutual trust and an unexpected respect. What she found, and what her readers discover through her, are women who seem never to have fully understood the weight of their own actions, puzzling-

ly detached from the reality of the murders they took part in – or had hoped to. She asked a woman she calls "Ayisha," for instance, if she "felt anything for her potential Israeli victims." "I saw the blood of Palestinians and I didn't' think about my mother or my family," Ayisha replied, "so how could I think about Israelis I didn't know?" Rather, Berko describes women far more concerned about themselves. "Rania," for instance, complains that newspaper accounts had referred to her as being nine months pregnant at the time of her attack, when she was actually in her third month. She feared people would condemn her for trying to kill her own child. Others speak frequently of fearing their husbands will take another wife before they are released. Th ough her dedication to the issues and her genuine compassion for these women, Berko not only earned their trust; in writing of them, she humanizes them to the reader in the same way she seems to humanize Israelis and Jews to them. Hence we learn that not all of these women are in prison because they genuinely wished to kill Israelis; some rather saw prison as a preferable alternative to the oppressive and violent homes they were forced to share with their abusive husbands or fathers. Some, as Daniel Pipes observes in his Foreword, "pretend to attack Israelis so as to go to jail and leave their miserable home lives," or to "escape sexual dishonor through violence." Th y may wave a knife in the face of an Israeli soldier, and in

some cases, return to prison as quickly as they can once they are released. Berko also explores the stories of child would-be bombers, who – unlike most of the women – are recruited, often through deceit, and almost always with promises of a Paradise fille with virgins who await their

swift arrival. Some also seek to emulate their fathers: "Qatada's" father, for instance, had served time in Israeli jails for attacking soldiers, and Qatada, 18 when Berko met him in prison, had been arrested for throwing stones at Israeli military. And others, like the women, seem to relate terrorism with violence at

home: one told Berko that he "chose terrorism in revenge and to rebel against his parents." Similarly, there are also those who see terrorism as a confi mation of their manhood, whose machismo is intricately tied with the notion that violence breeds respect – the same respect they sought from their own fathers. (Not incidentally, psychiatrist James Gilligan, who studies violent criminals in American jails, has found the same viewpoint among that population, as well.) "Fawaz," for instance, who was 15 when he was stopped, wearing an explosive belt on an Israeli bus, told Berko, "I had my picture taken with a gun and a Koran, and I felt I was a man and not weak; I felt I had power.... I felt brave and not afraid of anything." In writing The Smarter Bomb, Berko set out to answer specific questions: "Can a woman be 'good' according to the criteria of Palestinian society, and a terrorist at the same time? Is the involvement in terrorism a sign of Palestinian women's liberation, or is it another way of oppressing? Who are they, the Palestinian women who dared to leave their homes (in most cases without their fathers' permission), what made them and Palestinian children join the terrorist machine? Can the human bombs of Islamic terrorism be stopped, and if so, how?" By presenting the material as raw statement, largely uninterrupted by any interpretations of her own, Berko allows her readers to find those answers themselves, to draw their own parallels and discover any pat-

But her studies have far wider signific nce, as she observes, "Suicide bombing terrorism is becoming refine , and it is contagious." Since the book fi st appeared in 2012, suicide attacks have killed dozens of men, women and children in Paris, Manchester, Brussels, and Istanbul. And non-suicide terrorism has murdered even more – including the shootings in San Bernardino, largely orchestrated by a woman, Tashfeen Malik. Berko's work may be compassionate, but it is not about compassion. Rather, it is about understanding who these women and children are. It is about discovering what makes them seek solace through violence and death, so that we may potentially find a way to save them – and in so doing, save ourselves. (INVESTIGATIVE

New Book Features Beloved Episodes of “Itche Kadoozy” Video Series By: Menachem Posner

B

efore there was YouTube, there was Itche Kadoozy. The wonderfully wacky web video series features a cast of puppets that includes a gray-bearded rabbi, a dysfunctional but lovable college student, and a talking gefi te fish The series was released on Chabad.org in 2004 and continues to entertain and educate children and adults around the world. “Back then, even before YouTube, the internet created the opportunity to share video with the world,” says Rabbi Dovid Taub who produced the shows with his friend Jonathan Goorvich for Chabad.org, “but there was really very little quality Jewish video content out there. We had this great idea, we made the videos, and people would email them to their friends and that was how they were passed around,” he explains. As the show gained a faithful audience and evolved, the cast grew to include a fi titious lawyer named Larry Goldstein (who ends every statement with a open-mouthed “Ha!”), some friendly monsters, and a slew of other zany but instantly memorable characters. For example, in “Jono and the Whale” Jono wins a pet whale in

a sweepstakes after purchasing 75 magazines he did not need (he could not resist because he was “pre-selected as a winner”). After arguing over whether bajillion and bazillion were proper numbers, Jono and the rabbi discover that the whale—too big for even six bathtubs—was being shipped to them in a “very large” cardboard box. Jono soon learns that a whale needs more water than could be provided by a 24-pack of spring-water bottles. The lesson: Jews need to be immersed in Torah, which is compared to water, on a constant basis. The show concludes with Larry Goldstein being inspired by the rabbi’s lesson and volunteering to arrange to ship the whale back to the aquarium. Starting in a miniscule conference-room-turned-studio in the Chabad.org office in Brooklyn, N.Y., the filmi g and editing progressed along with the technological advances of the era, as did the facilities. Yet, the nonstop laughs and intermittent Jewish teachings remained a constant. In a 2007 feature on the show’s meteoric rise to fame and fandom, the Forward reported that “part of the [show’s] appeal seems to be the quirky characters and original, witty plots.” The article went on to explain that the disparate characters of Itche and Jono allow every Jew

to see some of themselves in the show and relate to its message. Coming full circle, the scripts and select images from many of the most popular episodes of

the years, Tim in Forest, Va., wrote that “This is great. It reaches kids and adults alike. It was a bright spot in my day and made me laugh out loud.” “This manages to be utterly hilarious and surreal whilst also being very touching,” wrote another viewer from New York. “Astoundingly good—please keep up the amazing work so I can keep fl oding my relatives’ inboxes!” “We're at a slumber party for our class,” wrote the sixth grade of Bais Yaakov of Boston, “and we just are going on the computer for fun, and we watched this (and also the Chanukah song by Jono) and we decided we agree [with the commenters who are asking for even more IKS videos].” Over the past few years, the Chabad.org team has been adding closed captions to many of the videos, making them accessible to even more people. “I fi st learned about Itche Kadoozy from my kids,” says Rabbi Zalman Goldstein, who Many of the most popular episodes of Itche Kadoozy, the wonderfully produced the book, which is wacky web video series, are now available as a soft-cover 408-page being released by the Jewish book Learning Group, in conjunction with Chabad.org. “They would the show are now being released stream of comments, it is clear laugh hysterically and watch in the form of an oversized, that it is still hitting a spot and the shows over and over.

book, which includes many of the show’s most beloved episodes, is perfect reading for all ages, especially on long, summer Shabbat afternoons, when computers and similar devices are off-lim ts by Jewish law. He explains that the book can also be used in the classroom and in camps, with children taking turns acting out the various characters using the scripts in the book as their guide. Goldstein was able to assemble some parts of the book from scraps of original scripts that Taub stored away years ago and resurrected from ancient harddrives. But the majority had to be painstakingly transcribed from the actual videos. Th book also contains some historical photos and background information that will be of special interest to Itche afici nados. “Itche Kadoozy was born and developed on the internet,” refle ts Taub. “Thanks to Rabbi Goldstein’s hard work, it is now going to live in the world of print media as well—and that’s wasome!” (CHABAD.ORG) The Itche Kadoozy Show (softcover; 8.25 x 9.5; ISBN 9781891293610; 408 pages; $24.95) book is published by the Jewish Learning Group and distributed by Feldheim Publishers.

She sees a need to rethink entrenched gender roles further when it comes to emergency services.

Traditionally, all EMTs serving Brooklyn’s Hasidic neighborhoods come from the exclusively male volunteer organization Hatzolah. Although the rules against contact between unmarried men and women are waived during medical emergencies, Freier explains, “Most Hasidic women want a woman to help them.” Hence the name of the new EMT organization she begins building, Ezras Nashim (women who help). Th backlash is immediate. An anonymous Hatzolah interviewee says, “The community itself will rebel against any organization trying to do things against [us]. In reality, there are gender specific oles. We’ve never had a woman president. Most CEOs are still men. Sometimes it’s just the way it is, whether you like it or not.” A fl od of more openly hostile online comments and memes evinces a desire to stop the new organization. Despite this, the fi st group of volunteers assembles. A series of vignettes shows the women training, obtaining the necessary medical supplies and setting up their emergency dispatch system. When they connect to the officia New York City Fire Department radio, the chief assigns them the call sign 93Q, read aloud as “93-Queen.”

The film spends time with several other members of Ezras Nashim: co-founder Yocheved, a recent convert with more than 20 years of EMT experience in the secular world; Yitty, a young mother who had childhood dreams of being a doctor; and Hadassah, a recently divorced woman who joins, she says, because “no woman should ever be too embarrassed to call for help.” The e women share Freier’s belief in the organization’s core mission, though tension rises over just how far Ezras Nashim should go in challenging the patriarchy. A rift emerges when unmarried recruits are barred from working in the field due to Freier’s decision to allow only married women to go out on calls. Freier reiterates her commitment to keeping within religious boundaries while she also acknowledges her role in cracking the glass ceiling: “Obviously I couldn’t achieve this position if the women who have been trailblazing for women’s equality hadn’t made it possible, so my connection with secular feminism, I think, is very obvious. But you can’t just in one sentence narrow me down to a few specific words.” “No one embodies the confounding dichotomy between

tradition and modernity quite like Ruchie Freier. While toeing the blurred line between redefini g traditional roles and merely updating them, Ruchie takes matters into her own hands to move her community forward,” said director Paula Eiselt. “93QUEEN neither demonizes nor sanitizes the Hasidic community, but rather introduces viewers to the type of complex and nuanced Hasidic human beings many don’t believe exist.” “By bringing us vivid portraits of the women behind this groundbreaking organization, 93QUEEN shows us that identity and beliefs are never simple,” said Justine Nagan, executive producer/executive director of POV/American Documentary. “All at once, religious women grapple with questions about patriarchy, feminism, fairness

5778: The Year in Review A look back at the year’s most formative stories By: Tzemach Feller

I

n the Jewish year 5778, Chabad.org/News covered hundreds of events that shaped the lives of individuals and communities around the world. We wrote about those who came together in aid of people and places devastated by natural disasters and manmade catastrophes. We gave our readers reason to cheer on new Chabad emissaries, and decry anti-Semitism and bigotry. Together, we were shaken by acts of senseless violence and hate, and uplifted by stories of triumph and resilience. As Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year (celebrated this year from Sunday evening, Sept. 9, to Tuesday evening, Sept. 11) has just passed, here are some of the past year’s most formative stories.

Chabad Expands

Jewish communities opened and expanded throughout the world, as Chabad opened in its milestone 100th country, Uganda. Montenegro got its fi st rabbi in a century, while Curaçao got its fi st in 366 years. Th fi st-ever permanent synagogue opened in Iceland. Zanzibar got its fi st Jewish center, and Montana got its third. Barbados became the 11th Carribean locale with a Chabad center. A yeshivah opened in Tatarstan, and millenial Chabadniks started a

Kim Kardashian West Signs Deal With Top Israeli Sunglasses Chain By: Ilanit Chernick

I

sraeli sunglasses chain Carolina Lemke Berlin has announced that American reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Israeli model Bar Refaeli as the face of the company. Kardashian West, whom the sunglasses company described on Wednesday as “the most famous woman in the United States,” has signed on for at least two years, beginning in the Summer of 2019. On Wednesday, Refaeli posted a photo with Kardashian West captioned: “Friends & now partners! @kimkardashian joined my @carolinalemkeberlin family. Welcome my love!” In a statement, the chain said that the famous celebrity would be visiting the country in March for cooperation and work-related reasons and that there are plans in place for her to design her own line of glasses for a limited edition series, which will be sold by Carolina Lemke. It added that it will also launch Kardashian West, whom the sunglasses company described on Wednesday as “the most famous woman in the United States,” has signed on for at least two years, beginning in the Summer of 2019.

Carolina Lemke Berlin announced back in March that it was in “advanced negotiations” with Kardashian West to bring her on board for a new campaign. At a press conference on Wednesday, Refaeli – who also holds a fin ncial stake in the company – said she personally called the supermodel to explain her vision, and then fl w out to Los Angeles to visit her. Carolina Lemke also confi med that Kardashian West will retain 10 percent of a US subsidiary, which will oversee Carolina Lemke’s operations in America starting from the second quarter of 2019. She will also receive 5

percent of profits generated from US glasses sales. Kardashian West has a massive social media following with 114 million on Instagram and over 60 million Twitter fans. In recent years, Refaeli has appeared in ads for the sunglasses brand alongside “hot felon” Jeremy Meeks and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Earlier this summer, when Kardashian West launched a new line of her makeup brand, she selected Israeli model Yael Shelbia as one of the faces for the new campaign. The superstar has visited Israel in the past, most notably in 2015, when she and her husband brought their daughter to be baptized in an Armenian Church in Jerusalem. (TPS)

Faith & Fasting: g A Look at the Practice Ahead of Yom Kippur Food abstention and restrictions are ancient practices whose purpose and benefit span across the three Abrahamic faiths—Judaism, Christianity and Islam By: Maayan JaffeHoffman

F

asting is the most commonly known Yom Kippur ritual. According to a 2016 Pew survey, 40 percent of American Jews and 60 percent of Israeli Jews fast on the Day of Atonement. Of course, fasting is not exclusive to Judaism. It is an ancient practice whose purpose and benefit span across the three Abrahamic faiths—Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Fasting is mentioned in the Bible and the Koran, and although its practices differ across these religions, they each use food restriction and/or abstinence as a means of growing closer to God through repentance, increased gratitude, mourning and study. Fasting is broadly defined as the partial or total abstinence from food. In Judaism, one refrains entirely from eating or drinking on major fast days (Yom Kippur and Tisha B’Av) and on the four minor fast days (the Fast of Gedaliah, the Fast of the 10th of Tevet, the Fast of the 17th of Tammuz and the Fast of Esther, right before Purim). Aliza Bulow, a Colorado-based Jewish educator, and the author and founder of WICK (Women in Chizuk and Kiruv),

told JNS that fasting in Judaism generally centers around atonement for previous wrongdoings, mourning or gratitude, in that by abstaining from food, one realizes his/her dependence on God and appreciates the sustenance God provides. “Fasting that is not on Yom Kippur is so we will feel a sense of lacking,” she explained. “The lacking of food will lead us to feel we are lacking a closeness to Hashem, and we want to get it back.” She said that the Jewish people see the physical as “a gateway to the spiritual.” “On Shabbat, we wear pretty clothes, clean the house, enjoy delicious food … because we want to create a physical environment that helps shift our spiritual perceptions,” she said. “Fasting is no different.” Except on Yom Kippur. Thi 25-hour fast from sunset to nightfall is solemn, humbling and repentant, but also happy in that repentance brings redemption, said Bulow. On Yom Kippur, which is spent mostly in prayer, fasting aims to elevate Jewish souls to the exalted level of mal’achay hasharait, or “ministering angels.” “Yom Kippur is our aesthetic day,” said Bulow. “On Yom Kippur, we suffer physically to achieve a spiritual height.”

good as possible so at the end of the month, when God does an accounting to see how many good deeds you did versus bad deeds, you will skew positive,” said Albaz. By Eid Al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, it is expected that Muslims have become improved versions of themselves. In addition to Ramadan, Muslims also fast on Monday and Thursdays, as well as 13th, 14th and 15th of each lunar month. Other voluntary fasting days include the Day of Ashura (10th day of Muharram); Day of Arafat (ninth day of Dhu alHijja, the month of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca); and six days during the month of Shawwal, which follows Ramadan.

Ramadan is mandatory for every Muslim man and woman above the age of puberty. Albaz added that if a person is sick, elderly, pregnant or nursing, he or she can have permission not to fast, but will need to make it up later by fasting an equal number of days or by giving charity to those in need. This “sacred month” com-

Fasting in Christianity varies much more than in Islam and Judaism. Roman Catholics, for instance, define fasting as the reduction of food intake for one full meal and two small meals with solid food intake prohibited between meals. Th y have two obligatory fast days: Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, though voluntary fasting is encouraged and practiced. The late American evangelist Bill Bright, who is considered a major catalyst for the modern-day resurgence of the discipline of fasting in the Christian church, said fasting is “a way to align our hearts.” “I am convinced that when

God’s people fast with a proper biblical motive—seeking God’s face, not His hand—with a broken, repentant and contrite spirit, God will hear from heaven,” Bright wrote in his guide to fasting and prayer. “He will heal our lives, our churches, our communities, our nation and world.” In the Eastern Orthodox tradition, fasting is an important discipline to protect oneself from gluttony, and is generally defined as avoiding meat, dairy products, oil and alcoholic beverages. It is accompanied by almsgiving and prayers; without such acts, it is considered worthless. Both Catholics and Orthodox Christians observe the Lenten season, which lasts 40 days, starting on Ash Wednesday and ending about six weeks later before Easter Sunday. Lent remembers the fasting of Jesus in the wilderness, and involves atoning in preparation for his death and resurrection at Easter. In the past, Protestants frowned on fasting, but now it is acknowledged and encouraged as an important spiritual experience among Protestant churches, according to Richard Bloomer, director of the School of Health Studies at the University of Memphis and co-author of The Daniel Cure, a restricted 21-day vegan diet based on a fast in the biblical book of Daniel. He told JNS that in ChristiSee Faith & Fasting: A Look , page B11

Blowing Shofar Amidst the Smoke and Ashes – Memories of 9/11 By: Menachem Posner

T

he image is seared into my mind. Walking over the Williamsburg Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan in the early morning, looking to the right, and seeing giant plumes of smoke rising from the spot where the Twin Towers had stood just days before. New Yorkers don’t generally talk to strangers. But everything was different in those days after 9/11. We were one city, one people. The fear had touched us all in a place that was deeper than race, socioeconomic status or culture. We were all humans in need of comfort. My friend Dani and I crossed the bridge together with a cyclist. He told us that he was going away. He did not know where, and he didn’t care. He just needed to get out of New York to escape the terrible destruction that had happened there. But we weren’t going far. It was the fi st day of Rosh Hashanah, and I was on my way to blow shofar for a small congregation of elderly retirees in Gramercy Park. In my hand, I had a leather bag with a shofar inside of it. Since I did not yet own a shofar of my own (I was 18 at the time), I had borrowed one from my aunt and uncle. Its mouthpiece was riddled with tooth marks made by my overenthusiastic cousins, but it made a fin sound. I had spent a few hours

in my dorm room practicing the day before, and I was sure that I would be able to blow it just fin . I was accompanied by Dani, whom I had met in Russia the summer before, when we were co-counselors at the Chabad summer camp outside of Moscow. His parents were longtime refuseniks, and he knew Russian even though he had grown up in Israel. I, on the other hand, had learned a handful of words from my campers. Our common language was Hebrew, and we struck up a friendship (today, he is a Chabad emissary in S. Petersburg, and we still keep in touch). And there we walked in the early dawn light, smelling the smoke of destruction and wondering how exactly the world would survive the new year, 5762. When we arrived at the synagogue—a narrow affair sandwiched between walk-up apartments, Chinese laundries and convenience stores—we felt like we were sucked into a different era. The once-grand but never large lobby bore fading photos of the congregation’s Hebrew school, none more recent than the 1970s, and the smell of musty carpets and aged books pervaded the building. As we entered the sanctuary (according to a plaque on the wall it had been paneled in the 1950s), we saw perhaps a half-dozen men scattered throughout the room. Some pews were so covered with old

books and pamphlets, there was no room to sit. Near the front sat the rabbi. Wrapped in his tallit, the rabbi turned to greet us. He wore a white kittel with silver braid, the likes of which I had never seen before, which seemed to be nearly as old as he was. He wore his beard in a neatly kept goatee. Known in Yiddish as a komatz berdel, the style had been popular among rabbis decades before I was born.

he had once been a well-known Yiddish radio personality and political activist who was famed for his oratory skills. The rabbi began the service by belting out “Adon Olam” in a tune I had never heard before but which has stuck with me until this day. One by one, worshippers trickled in. I do not know if the rabbi’s “several dozen” ever materialized, but there was a motley crew of Jews—the men downstairs and the women

above—mostly in their 70s and 80s. After Torah reading, it was time for the rabbi’s sermon. He spoke powerfully about “the evil men who knocked down those towers,” assuring his congregation (and perhaps himself) that G-d would surely bring them to justice.

It would be the rabbi’s fi st year not blowing the shofar himself, and he was not quite ready to give up his sacred duty. He stood with me at the bimah in the center of the sanctuary and read along with me the mystical prayers said by the shofar-blower. After reciting the blessings, I closed my eyes and blew with all my might. I blew for the souls that had been cruelly snuffed out on 9/11. I blew for the congregation, wishing them another year of life and health. I blew for my generation, realizing that we were entering into an era when security was not something that we could ever take for granted. And I blew for G-d, who saw mysterious beauty in the destruction and had a reason for the hammer-blow that had rammed into our world. As we chatted with the congregants after services, it became clear that they were agitated and not very clear about what was happening just a few blocks away. “It’s that zero ground thing,” offered one woman, referring to the site of the attacks, which had been dubbed ground zero. “That’s why there are so few people in shul; they were scared away by that zero ground.” The e was a man in the synagogue from Brooklyn who was spending the holiday with his elderly mother in a nearby Beth Israel Hospital. He asked us to accompany him there to blow shofar for her and for another man who was in the hospital.

As we approached the hospital, we were greeted by walls covered with photocopied pages, each one with a photo, name, and brief description of an individual—a stark reminder of the terrible trauma that Manhattan was living through. People were still missing under the rubble, and family members were desperate for news. We blew shofar for the two elderly people and shared a meal with their children. Homemade gefi te fish, sweetmeats and compote were a much-welcomed repast at that time of the aft rnoon. Dani and I then spent the rest of the afternoon walking through the halls of the hospital, offering to blow shofar for any Jews who had not heard it. Along the way we met the Jewish chaplain, and he was happy to assign us certain fl ors, thus easing his burden. We returned the following day for a repeat performance, and then remained in Manhattan until nightfall when we took a car service back home. As we rode back to Brooklyn, the driver played the radio. For the fi st time since the attacks, there was more than just news updates. Ads, talk shows, the regular programming was coming back on air. It felt good to hear the usual irreverence of New York AM radio. It meant that we were still alive, still ourselves. And with that, we were ready for the Jewish year of 5762. (CHABAD.ORG)

ABCs of Yom Kippur Guidelines for the holiest day of the Jewish year – the Day of Atonement By: Rabbi Shraga Simmons

F

ollowing the sin of the Golden Calf, Moses pleaded with God to forgive the people. Finally on Yom Kippur, atonement was achieved and Moses brought the second set of Tablets down from Mount Sinai. From that day forward, every Yom Kippur carries with it a special power to cleanse our mistakes (both individually and collectively) and to wipe the slate clean. Thisworks on two conditions: (1) We do a process called teshuva – literally "return." Teshuva involves four steps: • Regret – acknowledging that a mistake was made, and feeling regret at having squandered some of our potential. • Cessation – Talk is cheap, but stopping the harmful action shows a true commitment to change. • Confession – To make it more “real,” we admit our mistake verbally, and ask forgiveness from anyone we may have harmed. • Resolution – We make a fi m commitment not to repeat the harmful action in the future. (2) Th ugh the combination of teshuva and Yom Kippur atones for transgressions against God, it does not automatically

erase wrongs committed against Five Aspects other people. It is therefore the The e are five areas of physiuniversal Jewish custom – some cal involvement from which we time before Yom Kippur – to refrain on Yom Kippur: apologize and seek forgiveness 1.

designed to stir us to mend our ways: • The Yom Kippur prayers begin before sundown with the haunting melody of Kol Nidrei. The Torah scrolls are all removed from the Ark, and the chazzan (cantor) chants the Kol Nidrei prayer three times, each with greater intensity. • The special Yom Kippur Amidah (standing prayer) incorporates the Al-Chet confession of our various mistakes. With each mention of a mistake, we lightly beat our chest with the fist – as if to say that it is our impulses that got the best of us. • The Yizkor service – said in memory of loved ones – is recited following the morning Torah reading. • The lengthy Mussaf service features a recounting of the Yom Kippur rite in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. A highlight was the High Priest entering the Holy of Holies – the only person to do so, this one time a year. The Mussaf service also records how the High Priest would pronounce God's holy name, and in response the assembled Jews would prostrate on the ground. When reaching these passages, we too prostrate ourselves on the ground. • At the Mincha service, we read the Book of Jonah, the biblical story of a prophet who tried to “flee from God” and wound up swallowed into the belly of a huge fish

Jews Praying in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur was painted by Polish Jewish artist Maurycy Gottlieb in 1878. It depicts Jews in the midst of the Yom Kippur service, on one of the holiest days of the Jewish calendar.

• While a regular weekday has three prayer services, and Shabbat and holidays have four, Yom Kippur is the only day of the year that has five. This fina prayer is called Ne’ilah, literally the “closing of the gates,” which serves as the final chance to ensure that our decree for the year is “sealed” in the Book of Life. At the conclusion of Ne’ilah, the shofar is sounded – one long blast, signifying our confidenc in having passed the High Holidays with a good judgment.

before sundown, and extends 25 hours until the following nightfall. • During the afternoon hours leading up to Yom Kippur, it is a special mitzvah to eat a festive meal. • For making your fast easier, hydration is the key. Avoid coffee or coke, because caffeine is a diuretic. Heavy coffee drinkers can also avoid the dreaded headache by slowly reducing the amount of consumption over the week leading up to Yom Kippur.

Vayelech & Shabbat Shuva “Forgiven, but Not Forgotten” By: Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb

H

e was one of the greatest Talmud scholars of the last century, but outside of a small circle of disciples, he was never wellknown. He was a tragic figu e in many ways, and although few have heard of him today, he has not been totally forgotten. Interestingly, forgetting was one of the central themes of his many teachings. His name was Rabbi Arye Tzvi Fromer, and he hailed from an obscure town in Poland named Koziglov. He served in the rabbinate of several towns with equally obscure names. His extreme modesty mitigated the spread of his reputation. Late in his life, he experienced the unique frustration of being called upon to succeed an individual who was unusually charismatic and world-famous. He was asked to fill the shoes of a great man, and his accomplishments were constantly compared, usually unfavorably, to the achievements of his glorious predecessor. The man he was called upon to succeed as the head of the great Talmudical Academy in pre-World War II Lublin, Poland, was Rabbi Meir Shapiro. Besides being the founder of Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin, an innovative school for prodigious young Torah scholars, Rabbi Shapiro was an author, an orator of note, and a composer of Chassidic melodies. He was a member of the Polish Parliament and is remembered best as the person who intro-

SHABBOS SHUVA

The designation, Shabbos Shuva is given because, on this day, we read the Haftorah from the prophet Hosea which says: Return O Israel to the L-rd Your G-d. HaShem, who is our compassionate Father, is reaching out and waiting for each and every one of us to come to Him. The parsha opens with the electrifying words, “Ha`azinu HaShamayim – “Listen o Heavens and I will speak, and may the earth hear the words of my mouth.” (Deut. 32:1) Moshe Rabbenu reminds us that even when he is no longer here physically, the heavens and the earth will stand as eternal witnesses and testify that we

duced the concept of Daf Yomi, the daily study of the same page of Talmud each day by Jews all over the world. Rabbi Shapiro died of a sudden illness while a relatively young man in his early 40s. The search for a successor was not an easy one, and the reaction of most people to the choice of Rabbi Fromer was one of astonishment. "Who is he," people asked, "and how could he possibly follow in the footsteps of the multitalented Rabbi Shapiro?" Destiny did not give Rabbi Fromer much time to prove himself worthy of his new position. Within several years, World War II broke out. He suffered the deprivations of the ghetto and was brutally murdered by the Nazis. We do have some of the writings he published in his lifetime, and those few of his disciples to survive the Holocaust published some of his teachings on the weekly Torah portion. I have become enamored with these writings and am particularly taken by the fact that he returns again and again to the theme of forgetting. In this week's Torah portion, Parshat Vayelech (Deuteronomy 31:1-30), we come across the following phrase: "This song (the Torah) will proclaim himself as a witness, for it will never be forgotten from the mouths of his descendants..." Here, the Almighty assures us that despite the vicissitudes of Jewish history, the Torah will never be forgotten. Rabbi Fromer relates this assurance to an interesting phenomenon. The reader of this col-

umn may not be aware that many passages of the Talmud were censored by the Roman Catholic Church over the centuries and are today absent from most editions of this fundamental text. Jews have struggled in various ways to preserve these censored passages, and some modern editions do incorporate them, but by and large they have been forgotten.

student argued, "I didn't really complete the entire tractate. I did not study the censored passages because I had no access to them." Rabbi Fromer responded, consoled the student, and encouraged him to go through with the festive celebration. "You must understand," he argued, "that we have a guarantee in the Bible that Torah will not be forgotten. If

Rabbi Fromer was once asked by a student who had just completed studying a tractate of the Talmud whether he could make a siyum, a festive meal celebrating that completion. "After all," the

some words were indeed forgotten, that is ipso facto proof that they were not authentic Torah to begin with." Many will take issue with this concept and find it too radical.

sealed an irrevocable covenant with G-d. Moshe Rabbenu calls upon heaven and earth to serve as witnesses, for even as they are constant and unchanging, so must our loyalty to Torah be constant and unchanging. Homiletically, the heavens represent our spiritual essence and the earth our physical being. Both must act in consonance to fulfill G-d`s Will. Our sages ask why Moses proclaimed Ha`azinu - Listen before Adaberu - I shall speak. The answer should give us all pause. It is only if we are desirous of listening that G-d`s Words will find a place in our hearts. If, G-d forbid, we are bent upon closing our ears, shutting our minds, then alas, the Words will never reach us. In these, the most sacred days in our calendar year, when G-d Himself stretches out His Hands, and is willing to help

us change and start a new life, let us be sure that we are listening. It`s all up to us. Let us start by making a commitment to pray regularly, to perform acts of loving kindness, charity and to study Torah. Join us at one of our many Torah classes.

ASERES YIMEI TSHUVA

The days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur are called the Ten Days of Repentance. During these ten days, it is appropriate to adopt mitzvos, good deeds not ordinarily observed during the rest of the year. The Zodiac sign of Tishrei is a pair of scales. Every Jew must look at these scales as though they are balanced and attempt to tip them in his favor through increased Torah study, mitzvos, acts of loving kindness and tzedukah.

YOM KIPPUR PREPARATIONS

Kaparot - Charity: As a symbol of atonement, Kaparot must be given before Yom Kippur. We do so with gifts of money or live chickens which we rotate over our heads as we recite a special prayer. The following is an excerpt from the blessing: “This is the offering exchanged for us, This is our ransom; this is our atonement. This money will go to charity while we will enter and proceed to a good long life, and to peace.” We do not eat, drink, wash, use perfume, wear leather or have sexual intimacy. It is customary to wear white as a symbol of purity. We light Yahrzeit memorial candles for those who are no

But the message is one which we can all affirm. Th t which is not Torah can be forgotten. What is trivial is ephemeral. Torah is not forgotten. Sanctity is eternal. This lesson carries over to the wondrous day which typically follows the reading of the Torah portion of Vayelech. I refer, of course, to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Even Jews who have forgotten the rest of their Jewish heritage remember Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur does not allow us to forget who we are. Stories abound about individuals who were on the threshold of apostasy, but who returned to our faith because of their experience of Yom Kippur. Th t fascinating Jewish philosopher, Franz Rosenzweig, is just one example of this phenomenon and writes in his memoirs of his readiness to accompany his close cousin to the baptismal font, only to reconsider after spending a Yom Kippur in a small synagogue somewhere in Germany, in 1913. "Israel, and the Torah, and the Holy One Blessed be He, are one." This statement of the mystical holy Zohar says it all. All three are bound together forever. "Forgive and forget." Th t is a cliché with which we are all familiar. One of the messages of hope which pervades this season of the Jewish year is that the Holy One Blessed be He forgives but does not forget. He does not allow his two most cherished objects, His Torah and His people, to be forgotten. Zvi Arye Fromer could easily have been forgotten, given the

horrible circumstances in which he perished. But the Almighty did not allow him to be forgotten. Nor did He allow the Torah he taught to be forgotten. The Yizkor service, one of the prominent features of the liturgy of Yom Kippur, is a method by which we do our part to see to it that those souls whom we knew personally are not forgotten. And our regular Torah study is the method by which we each see to it that the words of the Torah are not forgotten. The e columns on the parsha have helped so many of you, in an admittedly small way, to prevent the forgetting of Torah. I take this opportunity, to thank each of you for reading my words, for taking them seriously, and for responding every week in so many wonderful ways to what I have to say. May the Almighty bless you with a new year filled with peace and health, sweetness and joy, and much success. Ketiva Vachatima Tova to you and yours.

Both hands should be laid upon the head of the child to signify that the blessing is conveyed with generosity of spirit. Each parent may add personal blessings to the customary text as he sees fit.

MCHA Initiative last week launched its new ‘Anti-Semitism Tracker’ with a powerful and user-friendly search engine that will provide the public with unprecedented access to information and photo documentation about anti-Semitic incidents that occurred on campus between 2015-2018. AMCHA is the only organization that makes its database of all reported incidents of campus anti-Semitism accessible to the public. Using the website’s new search engines, users will be able to tailor a search by city, state, zip code, geographical region, year, date range, university, and category. Some of the incident categories include physical assault, discrimination, destruction of Jewish property, genocidal expression, suppression of speech/movement/assembly, verbal assault, intimidation, harassment, condoning terrorism, comparing Jews to Nazis, and accusing Jews of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust. Users can also search and run customized reports by keyword, such as “swastika.” One category of the search

Hoping p g to Save His Own Life, Man Designs New Surgical Tool Israeli entrepreneur with life-threatening brain tumor invents novel visualization solution for brain surgeons. His company was sold for $75 million By: Brian Blum

f you’re an Israeli entrepreneur and you’re facing a life-threatening disease with no cure, what do you do? For Avi Yaron, the choice was clear: he’d invent one. Now, 20 years after he was diagnosed with what his doctors told him was an inoperable brain tumor, Visionsense, the company Yaron founded to make possible the kind of surgery he needed, was sold this year to US medical equipment company Medtronic for $75 million. Th t’s a tidy premium over the $20 million invested in the company over the past two decades. It almost didn’t happen, Yaron tells ISRAEL21c. “Investors would say to me, politely and with all due respect, you have a ticking time bomb in your brain. Even the best surgeons can’t remove it. And you want us to invest in you?” Yaron was 26 years old when in 1993 his motorcycle crashed and he was rushed to the hospital. While in the MRI machine to check for damage, the doctors discovered something far worse: a tumor smack dab in the middle of his brain. “Avi, you’ll survive,” the doctors told Yaron. “But you need immediate surgery, after which

you’ll probably end up handicapped, paralyzed on one side, you’ll suffer from cognitive dysfunction and you might have epilepsy, too.” Yaron, then an electrical engineering student, was fl ored. “Before that, I had been healthy, active, high on life,” he says. “I refused the surgery. I don’t know if it was amazing intuition or pure denial, but that decision saved my life.” Yaron began learning as much as he could about his condition. He studied chemistry and anatomy. He researched what technologies were available and interviewed doctors around the world – in Israel, Europe and the United States. He eventually found a physician in New York who was able to remove the tumor. “I felt an amazing sense of victory,” he says. “I defeated the tumor!” But the doctor wasn’t able to get it all, and gradually the tumor started to grow again. The e was nothing else his doctor could do – existing endoscopes (the surgical tool used to guide doctors in minimally invasive surgeries) lacked the 3D depth perception required. “Maybe someone will invent a tiny stereoscopic camera in the next five years,” Yaron’s doctor told him. “For now, it’s fortunate that your tumor is growing

His big idea: instead of the kind of opto-mechanics used in traditional endoscopes, he’d base his invention on a small silicon chip and softw re algorithms. His design mimicked an insect’s eyes, with each side operating independently to create the 3D vision. Yaron launched Visionsense

“My dream as a Zionist was to grow Visionsense into a multinational global company like Nokia or Phillips,” Yaron tells ISRAEL21c. Yet, the $20 million raised from investors including Lewis Pell, Star Ventures, Peregrine Ventures and the Glenrock Fund was just not enough. At the time of the acquisition, Visionsense had a staff of about 20, with research and development

ploys 85,000 people worldwide and has a market capitalization of $100 billion, has made nine investments in Israeli medical tech over the past 13 years. Yaron left Visionsense in 2013 after hiring Alex Chanin as the company’s US-based CEO. Th decision was both professional and personal. Yaron says he knew a seasoned executive like Chanin would help ensure that Vision-

sense could execute its mission of saving lives. At the same time, Yaron, who had relocated along with his family to the US when he served as the company’s CEO, was itching to go home to Israel. Plus, he had a new dream – to take a leap into the burgeoning business of “neurowellness.” During the course of his own illness, Yaron became convinced that Western medicine “disregards the emotional aspect” and that patients “who manage their anxiety and stress live longer with improved health.” The future of medicine, he says, is in “developing predictive, preventative systems based on emotional factors. Th t’s my challenge now.” Yaron today is 51 and healthy. In the end, it was not his company’s technology that removed the final bits of resistant tumors in his brain, but an additional three surgeries in three different countries: Germany, Israel and New York. If Visionsense had developed its VSiii 3D camera system before then, those surgeries would undoubtedly have been more straightforward, safer and with a greatly reduced recovery time. While Yaron hasn’t stopped innovating, he has found time to volunteer, coaching other patients with brain tumors. While he doesn’t give medical advice, his condition taught him “a lot about humility,” he says. “I’m here to serve.” (ISRAEL 21C)

ave those weed-loving hippies taken their habit into the new millennium? Maybe so: New research shows pot isn't the drug of choice for just the young anymore. More middle-aged folks, and even seniors, are lighting up nowadays, researchers say. In fact, federal survey data show that 9 percent of adults aged 50 to 64 and nearly 3 percent of those aged 65 or older have used marijuana within the past year. "Th t's almost 1 out of 10. It's still much lower than a lot of the other age groups, but it's increasing steadily," said senior researcher Joseph Palamar, an associate professor in the department of population health at NYU Langone Health in New York City. It's double the percentage of those aged 50 to 64 who reported marijuana use a decade ago (4.5 percent), and more than seven times the percentage of adults aged 65 and older who reported use back then (0.4 percent), the researchers noted. Most of these people used marijuana back in the 1960s or 1970s, and are returning to pot use as it's become more socially acceptable, Palamar explained. Nearly all marijuana users aged 50 to 64 and more than half those aged 65 or older fi st

in 1998. It took another two years to get to a prototype and another 10 to create a commercial product. But the product has now been adopted by surgeons around the world and the company has been growing steadily. So why sell to Medtronic?

tried pot when they were 21 or younger, the study found. "To read that they're dipping back into cannabis use in their late adulthood is not very surprising to me," said Dr. Tim Brennan, director of the Addiction Institute at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospitals, both in New York City. Tough drug laws and the responsibilities of adulthood might have caused these people to stop using marijuana from the 1980s onward, he explained. "Now that states are legalizing it, perhaps they feel empowered to resume their usage," said Brennan, who was not involved with the research. For the study, the researchers analyzed responses from 17,608

adults aged 50 and older from the 2015-2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Participants were asked about marijuana use, including when they fi st used it and whether they used it in the past year. Brennan found it concerning that some of these older people used marijuana on a doctor's recommendation. About 15 percent of users aged 50 to 64 and 23 percent of those 65 and older said a doctor had recommended it to them. But there's not much scientifi evidence that marijuana has any medicinal benefit, Brennan said. Without further research to establish its effectiveness, doctors should not be prescribing pot.

Walking, Exercise Both Linked to Lower Heart Failure in Older Women By: Alan Mozes

Heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization among people aged 65 and older. Researchers say the findi gs are a fi st and concern otherwise healthy, postmenopausal women 50 and 70 years of age. The study tracked the exercise habits and heart health of more than 137,000 women since the early 1990s. "This is a big findi g insomuch as most adults are able to perform walking activities throughout the day, and often do so as part of usual activities of daily living without necessarily having planned walking as part of an exercise routine," said study lead author Michael LaMonte. He's a research associate professor in the School of Public Health and Health Professions at the University at Buffalo in New York. While more walking was better, intensity of exercise was not a major factor in lowering heart failure risks, the study found. Th t suggests that the amount of activity and not how much effort is required was the key for preventing heart failure in the older women studied. Thenew findi gs have signifi

Biologists at the University of California, Los Angeles, identified more than 8,100 combinations of four or five antibiotics that appear effective against harmful bacteria.

Combining four or five antibiotics might help fight the growing problem of antibiotic resistance, researchers report.

Yeh's colleague, study senior co-author Van Savage, voiced surprise. "I was blown away by how many effective combinations there are as we increased the number of drugs," said Savage, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and of biomathematics. "People may think they know how drug combinations will interact, but they really don't," he added. "It's like attacking a castle or fortress. Combining different methods of attacking may be more effective than just a single approach," Savage said. While these results are promising, the antibiotic combinations have only been tested in a laboratory. It will be years before they might be evaluated as pos-

sible treatments, Yeh noted. Still, the news was welcomed by experts concerned that antibiotics are losing their power. "With the specter of antibiotic resistance threatening to turn back health care to the pre-antibiotic era, the ability to more judiciously use combinations of existing antibiotics that singly are losing potency is welcome," said Michael Kurilla, director of clinical innovation at the U.S. National Center for Advancing Translational Science. "This work will accelerate the testing in humans of promising antibiotic combinations for bacterial infections that we are ill-equipped to deal with today," Kurilla added.
