An Open Letter To Kenneth Thompson About the Office of “Jewish Liaison”

It was with concern that I read news on Frum Follies about your plans to appoint a “Jewish liaison” for your office.  While there may be difficulties faced in dealing with members of the public who speak Hebrew or Yiddish, or potential for misunderstandings related to Jewish law or customs, it would seem that the […]

De Blasio Zinged For Inviting Harry Belafonte To Speak At Inauguration

What do Richard Wagner, Mikis Theodorakis and Harry Belafonte have in common? All of them are musical luminaries, and all of them are political loony tunes. What the hell was Harry Belafonte doing at De Blasio’s inauguration? If music is not coming out of Belafonte’s mouth, he is usually spewing political sewage.

An Open Letter To Mayor-Elect De Blasio About Parking Tickets

  For starters, Mr. De Blasio, I congratulate you on your election as Mayor of New York. One feeling that voters got from you is that you are aware of the existence of life in the four boroughs outside of Manhattan. That feeling has been noticeably absent under four years of Mayor Bloomberg. The issue […]

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

THOU hast made me known to friends whom I knew not. Thou hast given me seats in homes not my own. Thou hast brought the distant near and made a brother of the stranger. I am uneasy at heart when I have to leave my accustomed shelter; I forgot that there abides the old in the new, and that there also thou abidest.
Through birth and death, in this world or in others, wherever thou leadest me it is thou, the same, the one companion of my endless life who ever linkest my heart with bonds of joy to the unfamiliar. When one knows thee, then alien there is none, then no door is shut. Oh, grant me my prayer that I may never lose the bliss of the touch of the One in the play of the many.

Rabindranath Tagore (Gitangeli)
