JPost: No Jewish Leader Except ZOA’s Mort Klein Protested Obama’s Anti-Israel Animus

American Jewry, apart from the Orthodox and a minority of committed non-Orthodox, is demographically imploding. Paradoxically, this is taking place at a time when support for Israel among the American people is at an all-time high and traditional antisemitism is at its lowest level. Jewish education among non-Orthodox Jews is catastrophic, with widespread ignorance of […]

OP-ED BY: Morton A. Klein and Daniel Mandel ZOA Op-Ed in JPost: Time for UNRWA to Go

Palestinian Arabs have occupied everyone’s attention in recent weeks as a result of the rioting and disturbances on the Israeli/Gaza border.

Jewish and pro-Israel students on many college campuses have had to contend with the hateful and divisive tactics of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and anti-Israel collaborators like Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP).  They’ve endured threats and harassment.  Their speakers have been disrupted, their signs defaced, and their events shut down.  Such menacing behavior […]

OP-ED BY: Mark Levenson, Esq. and Elizabeth Berney, Esq. ZOA Op-Ed: Shmuley Boteach Hypocritically Praises Holocaust-Minimizing Polish Leader — Lies about Jewish Leaders Qatar Visits

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach has once again displayed mind-boggling hypocrisy. Boteach went to Poland and met with and lavished praise on Poland’s prime minister, who recently signed a despicable law that criminalizes speaking about Poles’ complicity in the Holocaust, which Israel rightly condemned. In doing so, Boteach quite possibly harmed Israeli and others efforts to overturn this […]
