A learned friend/mentor of mine, who is a strong Trump supporter, agreed with me that Trump is a fool for this whole impeachment mess that he got himself into, although we both believe that Trump has, besides his love for Israel and Jews, a very strong and effective approach and insight on how to deal with international thugs such as Kim Jung Un and the Iranian leaders.
The reason many Orthodox Jews, among others, have problems with President Trump is not simply due to his style. It is his coarseness, combined with his astounding ignorance, unwillingness to study or think deeply about issues our nation faces, constant lying, and cruelty to others who dare question him (including his competitors in the past and upcoming presidential elections).
This email is in regard to the editorial letter from “Z. P.” regarding Tobi Rubinstein’s article on red lipstick. There are many cultural and customary standards that Jews have taken upon themselves. Many of these standards are not rooted in halachah. This particularly applies to modesty. Although, I am no expert on halachah, it seems to be human nature to shift focus from important and overwhelming issues to tangible, insignificant ones. Unfortunately, there are far greater problems in the Jewish communities than lipstick color.
