Thank you, Gary Rosenblatt, for your column of Feb. 20 (“Has Jewish Infighting Finally Hit Bottom?”) describing The Israel Talks and its goals.

As the professional running the project, I think it is important to note that, through a major grant, UJA-Federation of New York is underwriting the initiative and its professionals are deeply involved in the planning and implementation of the project.
