Over 1,400 supporters of the land and people of Israel, including a delegation from Denver, united in Boston on November 4-6, 2022, for an unforgettable weekend at Jewish National Fund-USA’s largest-ever National Conference. Jewish National Fund-USA’s President, Dr. Sol Lizerbram, announced that the organization was close to achieving its fundraising target for its One Billion Dollar Roadmap for the Next Decade as its supporters reclaim the Zionist narrative and stand up against Jew-hatred. That’s what walking into the Jewish National Fund-USA conference feels like,” said Arts & Entertainment Task Force Member Jane Sagalovich. “This is our opportunity to stand up and say to the world and to future generations, ‘we are one and we are in!’”Jewish National Fund-USA’s National Conference also welcomed over 600 high school and college students from across the country. “The National Conference was phenomenal!” added Denver-area philanthropist Julia Epel Sherry, also a member of Jewish National Fund-USA’s Arts & Entertainment Task Force.
Column: What’s Israel Got to Do, Got to Do with Sexism and Homophobia? The larger controversy emerged in August when the nine student organizations at the UC Berkeley law school signed a statement composed by the group Berkeley Law Students for Justice in Palestine, JTA reports. Law school dean Erwin Chemerinsky, who is Jewish, swiftly condemned the statement and assured Jewish students that the law school maintains a welcoming environment for them. Let us hope that law students who are gay, female and Asian signatories are outliers in their worlds. He related two other accounts of gay Palestinians who were murdered, examples of a longstanding pattern there.1 month ago Boulder Jewish News

Most ominous is Trump’s call for American Jews to go all in for Israel. Let us assume that the Donald means well for Jews in Israel, American Jews and Jews worldwide. Trump has done nothing to address these concerns and even worked against them, and is now telling American Jews how they should behave. Any time he is capable of speaking in any depth about a given issue, Trump sounds as if he is reciting from someone else’s lecture, verbatim. Or, if Israel-bashers like Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib should seize control of the Democratic Party, what would American Jews do?1 month ago Boulder Jewish News
The süti — which Uzarowski describes as “a little sweet treat at the end of the day” — are plentiful here. Well before her career in some of the globe’s more forward-thinking kitchens, Uzarowski grew up cooking and baking with her grandmother, Magdalena. Many of her current recipes come straight from the food-stained pages of a hand-embroidered binder with recipes that were handwritten by both Magdalena and Uzarowski’s great-grandmother, Kathryn. While Süti & Co. now only operates as a daytime cafe, Uzarowski plans to introduce a dinner series before the end of the year. Considering Uzarowski’s high-profile career, Süti & Co. feels like a quiet triumph and a victory lap that the whole town can enjoy.1 month ago Boulder Weekly

Thanks to pressure from non-husband Schleien, the power couple now has a baby boy, who was born via a surrogate in the United States. As it would subsequently turn out, she had gone to the United States to meet her new infant. She and Schleien didn’t hand him over to the state, of course. If it doesn’t, the election will likely result in a deadlock, since the “anybody but Bibi” bloc isn’t anywhere near achieving a 61-mandate majority.
