Dear Editor: 

I am writing to express what a kiddush Hashem has happened to our k’hilah. For some time there have been tensions between the various factions in the k’hilah. When the son’ei Yisrael came out, everyone worked together as a k’hilah to defeat the son’ei Yisrael and help our friend Jim Gennaro. Having a sonei Yisrael “representing us on the Council” would have been disastrous. Ashkenazim, Sefardim, long-time residents, Bukharians, yeshivish, Black Hat, Modern – everyone got together on the same page. Everyone worked as a k’hilah to get out the vote and defeat the rasha – badly.

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank the kind stranger on 70th Road who helped me shovel out my car that was completely plowed in and snowed in. Most people just looked and drove by. You took the time to come back and help my young son and me shovel out the car.

Dear Editor:

I am writing to express a communal thank you to the Queens Jewish Link and especially Sergey Kadinsky for his reporting on the recent elections of James Gennaro and Grace Meng, who are friends of our community. Sergey helped expose the anti-Semitic tweets of their opponents, which helped get out the vote (and the people exposed were not too happy about it). Such reporting is needed, especially in these times when there are many son’ei Yisrael who are running for office in New York City. We need such local coverage here in the Link with reporters like Sergey who are willing and able to cover it.

Dear Editor:

I am writing to thank our Assemblyman Dan Rosenthal for taking the time to fight anti-Semitism by a candidate running for City Council in our district. It is not so easy anymore to fight anti-Semitism, as these forces have no shame anymore. He has taken some hits for this fight, as the candidate and her allies are truly shameless. We are truly privileged to have him as our Assemblyman and I hope he can continue to serve us for years to come.
