Thank you for the letter addressed to Myron Cohon, his family, and the community, published in JTNews on Fri., Dec. 23, 2011 (To the family of Myron Cohon and our community). I was horrified to read the cruel, arrogant column written by Martin Jaffee, published in the JTNews on Dec. 9, criticizing the obituary and life of Mr. Cohon. The apology from Mr. Jaffee was essential, although his carelessness in writing the column in the first place was appalling. Such writings create separation within the Jewish community, not commitment. Mr. Jaffee, in assuming he had the judgment authority of God, brought shame upon the University of Washington, the JTNews, and himself. Now that his column has been discontinued, I am willing to renew my subscription. Such a mistake should never be repeated by the JTNews.
