Quotable: In Print

“As President Obama said, justice was done. Bin Laden was an evil man. He preyed on the weak. He killed in the name of God….But I was not comfortable with the celebrations. Thoughtful discussion and thoughtful remembrance of recent events are to be preferred to dancing in the streets.”

—Union for Reform Judaism President Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie on the killing of Osama Bin Laden

“We finally have proof that Jewish camp works— it helps create a more vibrant Jewish future.”

—Jeremy Fingerman, CEO, the Foundation for Jewish Camp, reporting on the “Camp Works: The Long-Term Impact of Jewish Overnight Camp” study, which found that camp alumni are 55% more likely than Jewish adults who did not attend camp to say they are “very emotionally attached to Israel,” 45% more likely to attend synagogue at least once a month, and 37% more likely to light Shabbat candles.
