Eli Wiesel describes Gary Rosenblatt, as “An Honor To His Profession” in his preface to Rosenblatt’s book, Between the Lines: Reflections on the American Jewish Experience: A Collection from 20 Years of Columns. Rosenblatt is the longtime editor and publisher of the New York Jewish Week and an extraordinary newspaper man. He has consistently been fearless and incisive in writing about the major issues facing the American Jewish community and Israel. He has tackled such sensitive subjects as sexual harassment by rabbinical authorities, ineffective community leaders, and intra-community issues.
This volume is a treasure trove of beautifully written essays or columns tackling issues that affect all Jews. What is crystal clear is that Rosenblatt truly loves yiddishkeit, the Jewish people, Israel, and Jewish learning and beliefs. Illustrations.
