JV Editorial

Since my tenure as news editor of the Jewish Voice began roughly one year ago, our humble publication, I’m proud to say, has undergone something of a transformation. Our format is a fair deal more sleek than it was just twelve months ago. Our content has vastly improved in both quality and originality. Indeed, I’d dare say we could be compared favorably to any Jewish newspaper in New York. Of course, our newspaper is different in that it is an actual newspaper. That is to say, we are not a journal of opinions and divrei Torah that, as an afterthought, features a few news stories. We are a news publication that also features opinion pieces from some of today’s top columnists, and that always makes room for divrei Torah and Yom Tov-related

Last week, representatives from the Jewish Voice were present at a gala hosted by Israel’s Beit Morasha, a forward-thinking educational institution that promotes Jewish national unity in a variety of ways, in part through efforts to ease the conversion process for olim (immigrants to Israel) who have a sense of Jewish identity, through cultural and/or familial ties, but who are not yet Jewish according to halacha.

Pollard has been incarcerated for twenty-seven years, and many continue to lobby for a commutation of his sentence. Jonathan Pollard broke the law and deserved to be punished. But he has served long enough and should be freed.

It’s been more than 15 years since I first publicly advocated for Jonathan Pollard to be released from prison. I did so less than two years after I had completed my term as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. In reiterating that plea today, I find that a number of other high-ranking government officials have come to share my view.

The time is long overdue.

In the past 18 months I have been

Journalism is a tricky trade. While many writers wish to provide their readers with objective, impartial accounts of events, bias always remains. The inherent slant derives from three factors that always lie in the hands of the writer, editor, or publisher:  selection, presentation, and the positioning of material.

The staff at any newspaper must choose topics to write about to the exclusion of others, and this, the first bias, warps their readers' general perception of global dynamics
