Adam Horowitz connects the dots for Jewish Americans

I could come up with a thousand good titles for Adam Horowitz's beautiful article in Huffington Post, but you'll just have to read it yourself. It's very good. Here's a taste, but go read the whole thing:
There has been an unusual amount of introspection in the Jewish community this holiday season. Hanukkah was almost overshadowed by the Madoff scandal and the accompanying uproar about his impact on the Jewish community....

The future of Judaism and the moral standing of the US Jewish community are being threatened, but ironically, and tragically, it is happening far from the country clubs of Palm Beach and the mansions of Long Island. It is happening in Gaza. And unfortunately there is far too little handwringing about it in the Jewish leadership. (Huffington Post)
And note that it was published in the Huffington Post, one of the many places in the U.S. where 'progressive' is all too often pronounced 'Palestinians? Huh?'

Who knows, maybe one day they'll publish Omar Barghouti?

Why not thank them and ask them? (politely, please!)
