Since the "New Look" change mid 2011 - we are still thirsty for feedback but sadly get very little. Can we ask for one or two regular visitors to volunteer to regularly report, mentioning any link or display problems, and Email us with info. Some errors can be hard to track down and so outside help is most useful.

Note - (July 2011) We notice sometimes that out of the thousands of alerts sent out, there can be rather high numbers of "bounces" - on checking with our provider it would seem that now and again an ISP makes some change to their email settings and that can result in non-delivery to those using that ISP.
If it happens to be something like Hotmail, Yahoo or even gmail - then many can be affected temporarily. For those who miss out on one of our sendings, we apologize, but the provider does try to stay ahead of things when they can by making changes in their own settings to reflect ISP changes and so control the bounces, which we like to see as zero!
If in doubt, please check the alerts archive to make sure you have not missed anything. Also, if you get alerts do please open them!

rebuttals to "Gun Control"
JPFO tries to be an educator by supplying "intellectual ammunition" - the idea being that we provide information for folks to use the best they can, to further the fight against "Gun Control". We are tax exempt and cannot lobby or endorse but, for sure we can give you the fodder you need such that you can do your bit the best way you can. The fight to preserve our 2A is vital.
Researching to find data, writing articles, as well maintaining the site - all takes time and expense and so, help towards keeping this active and vital is essential. We would encourage anyone who finds our efforts worthwhile to become a member, or even donate - it all helps us survive and continue the hard fought battle.
Please dig deep, use the search, explore through our menus - find even old pages and pass them on. Dissemination of material is invaluable.
December 14th 2012
It's Chanukah, perhaps the most widely celebrated and enjoyed Jewish holiday worldwide. While large percentages of the Jewish people attend a Passover meal or fast on Yom Kippur, no Jewish ritual is as diligently observed as the lighting of the Chanukah candles.
For eight nights starting on the 25th of Kislev (Saturday night, December 8 in 2012), Jews will light Chanukah candles, starting with one candle on the first night and increasing daily up until eight candles are lit on the last night. What's so remarkable about this candle-lighting ceremony is not just its ubiquitous observance but the fact that all of the Jewish people observe it with the utmost stringency.
Like many Jewish practices, there are different levels of observance with regard to Chanukah. On Passover, you can eat the minimum quantity of matzo on the first night (one piece, about the equivalent of a piece of bread), or you can feast on matzo throughout the week for two dozen meals. There is a spectrum of observance, and only a small percentage of Jews are stringent to have matzo at every meal for the entire week.
On Rosh HaShanah (the Jewish New Year), most Jews hear the blowing of the shofar (a ram's horn -- see Lev. 23:23-25 and Num. 29:1-6), but only among the Orthodox is it common to sound the full 100 blasts of the shofar.
On the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkos), you can find "fruit of a goodly tree, branches of palm, boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook" (Lev. 23:40) in every synagogue, but only in some 10% of Jewish homes will you find them daily both in the synagogue and in the home.
But on Chanukah, it is estimated that some 90% of Jews light candles each night. And we don't just light candles, we do so according to the most stringent proscribed custom in Jewish tradition, filling our homes with increasing light each night.
Let us remember this Chanukah the lessons that the Maccabees taught us -- that we must be strict and stringent not just with regard to ritual observances like Chanukah candles but with regard to the protecting of the life of the innocent. The Maccabees waged a fierce battle against Greek incursion on Jewish sovereignty and taught the Jewish people that defense of life overrides Sabbath prohibitions. May we too remember that life is sacrosanct, that it is worth protecting, and that we must maintain the tools and ability to do so.
In modern times, here in the United States, that means that we must protect and preserve our Second Amendment rights -- the right to keep and bear arms in defense of self, in defense of family, in defense of property, and in defense of our religious and personal freedom. May we never see the day when we must take up our arms as did the Maccabees in defense of our religious way, and may we never see a time when we give up or lose the ability to do so.
