    When are you going to do your homework. You write about the Jewish community in New Orleans and don't have the curiousity to study "the history of the Jewish Community" of that town. First there was a noted Hebrew writer and educator who was active there at the turn of the twentieth century. More significant--that section of Jerusalem where she might have gone shopping, if she happened to be in the capital is named after one of the more famous American Jews, a Sephardic Jew born in Newport, Rhode Island who settled in New Orleans. He always had an interest in the Jews of the Land of Israel, and bought a parcel of land in Jerusalem. His name was Judah Touro, and the parcel of land he bought came to become Machaneh Yehudah. The next time you write about American Jewry, do a Google search, at least, you might find some information that might add color to the item. Ah! and your colleague Starkman said something else about Natanyahu's hecklers--are your prejudices showing?
