"I receive many emails from Israel and from friends traveling in Israel, which I always appreciate, but yours really was gripping. I took the liberty of forwarding it to about 150 people (jewish and non-jewish) and it has really had an impact - anyway , just wanted you to know what an impact it had on so many."
"As a longtime friend of Judy Lash Balint, and one intimately involved with the Jewish community, I recommend Jerusalem Diaries as a must read for anyone who seeks more knowledge about the political situation in Israel.
"I was deeply moved by Judy Lash Balint's reflections on her visit to the family of Vadim Norzhich. That two innocent reserve soldiers were brutally lynched, while the entire world looked on, is shocking just as news. The tragedy becomes personal, however, when we read about the victim and the family who mourns him. Ms. Balint's article helped to make Vadim more than the lifeless body we saw thrown from the second-story window of the Ramallah police station."
"I liked both your pieces very much. You have a very nice touch."
"I love your feisty, informed, unabashed opinions. Too rare among women."
"After I read your latest piece about what it felt like to go get your gas mask, it occurred to me that there is a difference between you and most everyone else who makes aliyah. You all no doubt have similiar experiences. You, however, know how to write about them. Your 'slice of life' accounts of making aliyah possess the rare quality of being able to simultaneously stimulate the intellect, spark the imagination and push all sorts of emotional buttons. They crackle with clarity and truth."
"Your writing is beautiful and uplifting. Thank you!"
"Judy, thank you for writing this wonderful article, (The Spirit of the People). It touched my heart and brought me hope."
"Your work is SO GOOD! You write beautifully and movingly."
"I'm just letting you know that your writings touch my heart and the hearts of all who read them. I make copies and give them to my staff at school regularly. They become the lead into our daily tehillim (Psalms). I'm sorry that there has been so much to write about lately. I wish it were quieter. May you continue to give us words of inspiration and help us to see the picture clearly."
"I love the way you write. It's so real and immediate. I feel as though I was there with you."
"I do get tired of email, but I never tire of reading yours. Your words go right to my mind in visions that help me understand and remember."
"I *loved* your story! Who needs television when you have that?"
"Your articles are moving and powerful. I send them to everyone I know. They touch all who read them. They inspire the activists and push the observer into action."
"I really enjoyed your articles. You write so beautifully. They are very powerful, tear-provoking."
