Letters to the editor: March 19


More praise for the JT

After reading the March 5 issue of the Jewish Times, the letter to the editor, “Kudos to the Baltimore Jewish Times” by Phyllis Lewkowicz, really hit home. She wrote exactly my thoughts, only better.

There are many well-written, articulate and informative articles well worth reading. Also, the new editor, Selah Maya Zighelboim, is doing an excellent job. I look forward to my copy every week.

The letter of the Oslo agreements

Missing from the March 5 editorial, “The international COVID laboratory,” which states that areas under Palestinian control are being inoculated at a slower rate than Israel proper, is the fact that, based on the Oslo agreements, the Palestinian Authority is solely responsible for the health care of the territories under its control.

It’s also a matter of fact that Israeli Arabs are given the same priority and treatment for vaccination as Israeli Jews, contrary to any international criticism or “Saturday Night Live” misplaced attempts at humor.
