Letters to the Editor: February 24


Masterful Job Weaving a Family’s Story
I wanted to thank the paper and its writer, Howard Blas, for the wonderful article in the Jan. 27 issue (Local News, “Chai Lifeline’s New Mid-Atlantic Director: Role Fills ‘Need to Give Back to Community’”).

We have received positive feedback, and I wanted to share that with you. You did a masterful job weaving the Kovacs’ family story and experience into the Chai Lifeline support story.

Thank you for your creativity and hard work in helping us spread our message.
Racheli Daniel, Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic regional director

Computers Seem to Appreciate Love. Do Humans?
My son recently said to Alexa, “I love you, Alexa.” Alexa responded that she really appreciated that (Opinions, “ChatGPT Can Write Verse, But Is No More Alive Than the Golem of Prague,” Feb. 10).

If a computer can appreciate sentiments of love (though programmed to do so), then surely humans would be appreciative of hearing it as well.

The Feb. 17 article, “Rhea on Retirement? The Maryland Public Television Celeb Is Busier Than Ever,” contained several errors. Rhea Feiken’s last name was spelled incorrectly throughout the article. In addition, “Rhea: A Life in Television” was actually one 30-minute film about Feiken’s career that Maryland Public Television produced and aired.
The Baltimore Jewish Times regrets these errors.
