    After 15 years of summer day camps, Orange County families finally have a resident camp option of their very own. The Merage Jewish Community Center in Irvine is in the process of signing up campers, ages 7 to 16, to fill 110 spaces available for Camp Yofi, a sleep-away camp at...

  • The Goalie of Oz

    July 28, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Oz Iluz loved to play goalie on his soccer team, but wasn't too keen on math or the math exam that awaited him. So the 12-year-old didn't really want to get on the small No. 14 bus in Jerusalem on that February morning in 2004.

    A suicide bomber also boarded the bus, killing eight,...

  • Barbie Meet Gali

    June 23, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    For generations, Barbie's hourglass "perfect" figure has confounded experts in anatomy, while giving girls a role model of debatable merit.

    Now there's a doll whose appearance is more modest, who looks like kids and whose values are distinctly Jewish.

  • Gifts for Grads That Will Make the Grade

    June 9, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    It's hard to find that perfect gift for the high school or college graduate -- something personal and thoughtful but also useful. It's even harder for distant relatives and friends of the graduate.

    Cash and gift certificates can be a tad too impersonal (albeit useful), but you don't...

  • Let My Old Passover Programming Go

    April 14, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    Why is this night different from all other nights?

    For one thing, it's the food -- or, rather, the food that's featured on television. But there's also plenty of food for thought in the form of Passover-related travel and Jewish news features.

  • White Rapper Gives Lyrics Kosher Spin

    March 31, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Onto the stage walks a Caucasian man in a button-down shirt and thick, plastic glasses. He looks like he would fix your computer. Instead, off come the glasses and out comes the Jewish "bling," a rhinestone-studded Star of David on a bulky metal chain.

    For Avi Elhiani and Yoni Aviv, both 14-year-old Orthodox day...

    Don't wear your heart on your sleeve -- wear it on your wrist. And with the new Shalom bracelet, you can. The Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles is distributing 25,000 of the blue elastic bands adorned with a white dove and the word "Shalom" throughout the community.
