U.S. Charity to Israel needs a very close watch

Reader comment on: U.S. Charity to Israel Reconsidered

Submitted by Lynn Handelman (United States), Mar 18, 2008 10:11

Re: Daniel Doron's article including a positive statement about Hadassah - should you ask a Jew in the U.S.A., he/she would tell you Hadassah is a Jewish organization. Call Hadassah headquarters and they will tell you that they are a non-sectarian organization. The Arab communities of Israel have most definitely done well by Hadassah.

The JNF is another organization that tries to sell itself as a protector of the Land of Israel. If you take a closer look, you will find, I believe, that it no longer is saving the Land of Israel for the Jewish People.

There are many such organizations that use the word "Jewish" in their title but are anything but looking out for the Land of Israel or her People.

Israel and the Jewish People need much more then "checkbook Jews".
