• Foolish fashion

    To the Editor: What some inner circle of self-perceived glitterati call "fashion" couldn’t be worn in Haifa, Beersheba or on any kibbutz or moshav in the land; nor should it be. How supremely silly those clothes look, even on the comely sabras wearing them. Israeli fashion, if there is to be such an entity, should… More ▸

    To the Editor: Israel’s people, in contrast to American Jews, contribute comparatively little to general Jewish NGOs such as the Jewish Agency.
