Rabbi Shammai Engelmayer is a brilliant writer and I never fail to read his articles on the editorial page. There is only one Rabbi Engelmayer – he is never dull and always enlightening.

I commend him for his article in your January 6 issue entitled, “Obama’s Distorted Israel Image.” President Barack Obama is clearly committed to Israel’s security. It is a shame how his speeches have been distorted and untruthfully told. I praise and thank Rabbi Engelmayer and The Jewish Standard for pointing out the facts versus the myths about our president.
