Ongoing Features

The Exponent Watchpost

Those of you who read the Exponent regularly have noticed that the past 7 issues have sported a new look, and to some degree a new feel. Unfortunately, the editorial policy remains locked in promoting a conservative, partisan worldview. We now look at recent editorials about two issues: Defending Israel and The Supreme Court, that illustrate the limitations we see.

- by Alan Tuttle.

In Their Own Words

Each issue features a prominent politician speaking directly to our readers on issues of concern to the Jewish community.
  • Q&A with Lois Murphy candidate for U. S. Congress in  Pennsylvania's 6th district - perhaps the most competitive race in the country.. 

Around Our Community

In each issue this column concentrates on overlooked geographical regions or demographic segments of our community.

- Bruce Ticker

Living Judaism

Feature focused on Jewish Spirituality, Meaning and Activism with invited columns written by Rabbis belonging to the various movements of Judaism.

- Rabbi Goldie Milgram
