  1. @Michael Weis: Then you haven’t been reading my blog. I’ve been blogging consistently about Adelson for months. I don’t see a single aspect of his tzedakah or political giving that isn’t tainted by extremism & hate. Well, OK maybe he’s given a few kopeks to an orphanage or some such. But that’s not what I’m talking about. The fact that he has less to spread around is just fine by me.

  2. @Devil’s Advocate: Taglit doesn’t help anything. It gives young people a short term “fix” of Israel & Zionism. The fix, like all drugs, fades a short time after and you’re left with the same issues you faced before getting the fix: how to strengthen Jewish identity in the face of competing trends in U.S. society.

    I’ll grant that Taglit has a long term beneficial impact for some. But this is a very small number of the thousands overall that participate.
