Take a Lesson from the British: Save Jewish Newspapers

My initiation into the world of Jewish journalism took place 50 years ago when I stumbled into a job reporting for the New York office of The Jewish Chronicle of London, the granddaddy of Jewish newspapers and an institution among British Jews since 1841. Reading recent reports of the imminent demise and apparent last-minute rescue of The JC, the world’s oldest Jewish newspaper, got me thinking… → Read More

The Man Behind Netflix’s Eli Cohen Spy Series

Sacha Baron Cohen might seem a highly unlikely choice to portray Eli Cohen, Israel’s most famous, successful and tragic spy, in the six-part miniseries, “The Spy,” now streaming on Netflix. But the British comic, who has made a career out of disguising his identity to fool others in outrageous and often hilarious ways as Borat, Bruno and Ali G, excels in the deadly serious role of a courageous… → Read More

Is Italy’s Jewish Community At Risk?

A few weeks ago, on a blazing hot Sunday afternoon in Rome, my wife and I visited the Arch of Titus, the first-century structure associated with tragedy in Jewish history. It was built in 81 CE in honor of Titus, the Roman emperor who viciously put down a Jewish rebellion, leading to the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in the year 70. We felt especially moved to be there on the… → Read More

The Ongoing Challenge For A Jewish Journalist

It’s not often one gets to read his own obituary. But that’s kind of how it felt after The Jewish Week reported on my plan to step down as editor and publisher on September 30. I’ve received a number of notes from colleagues in the Jewish community and readers I’ve never met that have touched me deeply. Many of them used the word “bittersweet,” saying they were happy for me that I could relax a… → Read More

For An Oriole Fan, It’s ‘The Oys Of Summer’

For the past two seasons the Baltimore Orioles have played in a league of their own. Unfortunately, it’s not the Major Leagues. Once the pride of Baltimore — along with the long-departed but still-mourned Baltimore Colts of the NFL — the Orioles now have become the symbol of failure to baseball fans around the country. It’s embarrassing, especially for those who remember the quality Oriole teams… → Read More
