I always enjoy Gabe Kahn’s Garden State of Minds and mostly agree with what he writes.
My husband and I belong to Congregation Shomrei Emunah, a Conservative synagogue in Montclair. We’ve been loyal members for 38 years and love the congregants.
However, like Kahn, we are very bothered by the constant criticism of Israel. Israel lives surrounded by countries wanting to destroy her. Israel may not be perfect, but it is only 70 years old. The United States is not perfect, but it is the best country in the world.
We stand with Israel. Am Yisrael chai!
