It seems like the "left" is getting all bent out of shape over Donald Trump's pick for Israeli Ambassador.
It also seems like the editors of the Algemeiner have attempted to duplicate SoMeHoW Frum's headlines.
Read and enjoy.

The advertising blitz unleashed this past month by Zman Magazine for their new endeavor, a Chanukah play, is showing great dividends.
The Yeshiva World has made great strides in recent years with regard to kosher entertainment, but the upcoming Zusman, a Nazi drama, based on a true story and produced by the greatest talents in the Jewish world shows tremendous promise.
With four different shows over the Chanukah break, this guarantees to evoke memories that will last a lifetime.

Whomever said that there is no Toeles in blogging, didn't read the comments on the previous post.
One noble "reader" informed me that the unofficial Augdah website has all the issues of the Jewish Observer, 1963-2010 available online.
It is a pity that this is not publicized more, as some of those articles are relevant even today.
Many of the same issues that the jblogosphere has been debating for the past 10 years have been debated already on these pages.
Kudos to the Lefkowitz family and all those involved in this project.

The recent controversy between the Jewish Weeklies whether to print pictures of women certainly should take their cues from the Agudath Israel magazine of record - The Jewish Observer Alav Hashalom.
The JO was published between 1963 and 2010, and was THE source for American Orthodox Hashkofo. Not only did the JO print pictures of women, and even on the front cover, but R Chaim Kanievsky recently wondered aloud why the book published on his Rebbitzen had so few pictures of her and so many of him.
