Letters to the Editor for Saturday, Jan. 4

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionTake action against anti-SemitismThe large number of violent acts of anti-Semitism in recent weeks in the greater New York area is of great concern to the Schenectady Jewish community.It feels like open season on the Jews, and many of us are afraid. We live in a climate of “different than me is my enemy.” And this cycle has to end. Here are some suggestions of action items:1. All leaders, whether in congregations or in government offices or in community services, must speak out against anti-Semitism and violence.2. Each and every one of us need to be vigilant. If we hear others say something, even in jest, that reflects a hatred of Jews or others, stop them and call them out on it.3. Pledge to use your words with care and sensitivity to others.4. Do what makes you feel connected. Remember that we are never alone.5. Create opportunities in your community for Jewish people to share about their experience and about their faith. Ignorance breeds hate.6. Show up at solidarity events to affirm that anti-Semitic violence is not tolerated in our community.7. Do what makes you feel loved. Ask for love from others and share it back.If we want to end anti-Semitism in our community, the task belongs to all of us. Act.Rabbi Matt CutlerCongregation Gates of HeavenRabbi Rafi SpitzerCongregation Agudat AchimSchenectadyUnhappy with First Night experienceI regret having to write this, but Saratoga Arts and the organizers of the First Night 5k race owe me and a few dozen other runners a formal apology, if not a refund, for our pre-paid First Night buttons that were nowhere to be found at check-in.I was told by a young, poorly informed volunteer that they were “probably oversold.” Inexcusable.And after waiting in a deserted Skidmore parking lot for the promised shuttle that never came, I trudged all the way downtown, carrying two bags of wet clothing. (No, I don’t have Uber, and God help you on New Year’s Eve anyway.)We eventually did get our three buttons for which I paid over $50, but not until almost half the evening had passed and I was too spent to continue, so we drove home.Not the kind of experience TV viewers routinely see, but it’s the one I had.William CoxSchenectadyD.C. politicians are scamming taxpayersWashington, D.C., Democrats are dirty players.They have everybody’s heads turned to Trump’s impeachment scam.The Democrats did a sneaky Pearl Harbor attack on the 1.4 trillion-dollar spending bill on the American taxpayers.Who knows what’s in that $1.4 trillion spending bill.I am a conservative and American taxpayer, and like all American taxpayers, I have the right to know.Who can read 300-400 pages of the bill in 24 hours?Rush it before Christmas break, so as not to shut down the government.It’s immoral behavior again by the Democrats.There’s a saying, “Fool me once, it’s your fault. Fool me twice, it’s my fault.”The president should not have signed that spending bill.I guess we will find out in 2020 what’s in that spending bill that the American people are paying for.It’s the fault of President Trump’s, the Republicans and Democrats for pulling a fast one on the American people.There’s no way to read and understand what’s in that spending bill in 24 hours.David S.
