To the Editor:

 

Your cover story "The Good Life and Its Dangers" outrageously implies that Israelis care more about money than a future of peace and security.  This deeply odious subtext of Israeli Jews' being obsessed with money plays into the age-old anti-Semitic canard that Jews prize money above any other interest.

 

Ignored is the decades-long yearning of Israelis for peace and the tremendous efforts that successive Israeli governments have made in its pursuit. 

 

As Jews around the world embark on a new year with prayers for peace, the article is wrong, inappropriate and offensive.


  Sincerely,

Abraham H. Foxman
National Director
