While you are enjoying this holiday weekend, please join us this Memorial Day in honoring the memory of our fallen soldiers. Nothing wrong with sales, barbecues and beaches, but those who died to protect our liberties must not be forgotten, so Ronit Treatman proposes an appropriate complement to your Memorial Day menu.
 
Thank you to those who stopped by the Philadelphia Jewish Voice booth at the Israel 65 Festival last Sunday. It was a pleasure getting to meet our readers, and I even got to meet a couple of our online volunteers for the first time. Many of the organizations at the festival mentioned how they appreciated being able to list their events in our community calendar. Please take a look at the calendar for upcoming events around our area, and encourage the organizations you are involved with to submit their events or contact us if their events aren't listed yet.
 
Here are highlights of this week's headlines including discussion of right-wing comparisons between the IRS and Nazi Germany as well as an exclusive interview with the two Jewish women that recently became the first same-sex couple to be joined in civil union by the State of Colorado and a couple of articles about our local Jewish athletes!
