In a letter to President Carter obtained by JTA, the group wrote that the former president had aban- doned his role as a peace broker in favor of malicious partisan advocacy, portraying the complex Israeli- Palestinian conflict as a "purely one-sided affair" which Israel bears full responsibility for resolving. The letter also cites a "disturbing" passage from Carter's book, "Pales- tine: Peace Not Apartheid," which appears to call for Palestinians to end acts of terrorism only if Israel abides by its obligations under inter- national law and under the "road map," a peace plan g...

(JTA) — Karyn Berger, a slight, dark-haired woman wearing a royal blue prayer shawl, steps up to the microphone to intro- duce herself and her four colleagues. All are about to be ordained as Jewish Renewal spiritual leaders — two rabbis, two rabbinic pastors and one cantor. "We were born in Austria, Budapest, the Bronx, Toronto and Oklahoma," she begins. "We grew up atheist, Reform kosher, socialist- Zionist. Two of us went to Orthodox yeshivas. Our average age is 49, and collectively we've been married for 75 years." When the laughter dies down, Berger, a doctoral student of medieval Arabic and Hebrew poetry, continues more seriously. "All five of us got our call to serve, and here we are," she said. "Our calling is to heal souls — the souls of the Jewish people." The candidates' ...

But as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice wrapped up another Mideast swing, this time in the shadow of President Bush's shifting tac- tics in Iraq and the political furor that has ignited in Wash- ington, there were no hints of major new initiatives in the region, no indication the Bush administration will follow the recommendations of the Baker Hamilton commission on Iraq and make Mideast peacemaking a top priority. The one concrete outcome — the decision to hold a three-way meeting between Rice, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abb...

It was a remark- able experience and encouraged me to follow closely the events of that sad country Our unit was based near the southern Shiite city of Nabatiye. I became friends with a lovely local Shiite family which owned a small gro- cery store near our base. We had many long conver- sations about the dilemmas facing Lebanon and how it might be pos- sible to move forward to a more peaceful environ- ment. On my return from a weekend leave in Israel, the family expressed much concern about my well-being and they were upset by the possibility of our transport having been attacked by the Lebanese on the way to or from home. I also had contact with a delightful Maronite intelligence officer who maintained that, with the complex religious internal ...

Gross My friend Barbara is 80 now, and not so spry as she used to be. That nasty breathing business called COPD holds her at home most of the time. But in her mind, she runs free. When I first met her, almost exactly 50 years ago, Barbara was the mother of young children. Now her granddaughters are the mothers of young children! But she remem- bers with wry fondness even further back, when it was her mother who had the small children, and she was one of them. And she has shared these memories with me. We're survivors, she starts out by saying. We survived being born to mothers who smoked and drank while they were pregnant, and who didn't get tested for diabetes. They put us to sleep on our stomachs in cribs painted such bright colors — but that pretty paint was lead- based! There weren't any childproof caps on medicine bottles, no child- pro...

"There's no secret to living a long life, but I'm sure that having a loving wife, who has always taken such good care of me, has had a lot to do with it," said Mr. Goldberg. "Ruth, a healthy lifestyle, and a not-too-stressful life, keep me going every day'' The son of Dora and Benjamin Gold- berg (ob"m), who were from St. Joseph, Mo. and Lithuania, Mr. Goldberg was also the brother of Selma and Cecille (ob"m). "I come from good genes; my father, who was a watchmaker, lived past 90, and my sister Cecille lived to 93," Passing on his good genes, Mr. and Mrs. Goldberg...

Ha'aretz reported Tuesday that between 2004 and 2006 Alon Liel, former director-general of Israel's For- eign Ministry, was in an Israeli delegation that met secretly with Ibrahim Suleiman, a Syrian American considered close to the Assad regime, as well as an unnamed European mediator. According to Ha'aretz, the sides settled on a blueprint for a gradual Israeli with- drawal from the Golan Heights, which it captured from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. The plan called for much of the strategic plateau to become a park for Israelis and Syrians to use, and Damas- cus would distance itself from Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran, the report said. Ha'aretz reported that the governments of Israeli Prime Ministers Ari...

The event, at the Westin Park Central, is open to the community. It is "Shalom," not only as in "goodbye" but as in "peace," which is what Morganstern and her efforts over the past five years have brought to the organization. Hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the aware- ness of the organization to many throughout North Texas, have been raised through the speakers, celebra- tions and education measures she has brought to the Dallas community.

On Jan. 28, from 2 to 4 p.m., Jewish Family Service will salute the more than 1500 volunteers who, from July 2005 to date, have made all the difference in the world. "We could not give the commu- nity all the help we do, in the manner we do it, without the countless hours of our volunteers," said Janine Pulman, director of vol- unteer services. "We have our core professional and administrative staff but it's the touch of the volun- teers, literally and figuratively, that makes the services we provide reach those who need our help."

Moses was 80 and Aaron was 83 when they spoke to Pharaoh. One would think that people over 80 are entitled to a quiet retirement. But that seems not to be the case. The Mishnah in Pirkei Avot is instructive. It recounts the various stages of life and what the purpose and advantage of each stage of life is. For example, the age of 20 is a time to pursue an occupation, 30 is a time of physical strength, 40 for under- standing the meaning of life, 50 for giving advice, 60 for the acquisition of wisdom, 70 for gaining even deeper understandings of human experience, and 80 is a time to grow in spiritual power, gevurah. The commentators ask: Why does God ask Moses to embark on the great...
