    You give because it’s a mitzvah, your religious side says (because it’s the right thing to do, adds your inner ethicist.)

    That’s what we like to think—it’s certainly what we tell ourselves.

    But what if all our self-congratulation covers up the real truth?  Check this out (from... read on

    Throughout this week, I’ve made latkes (or at least attempted to), gone to school musicals and even mastered the art of the dreidel.  Now, for the 7th day, its time to party, Chanukah style.  Thanks to the help of Taglit Birthright Israel, Jdub Records (in addition to the support of the Progressive Jewish Alliance), we can light candles with class, drinks and girls.

    What’s Chanukah without a little dreidel? Better than mario kart or guitar hero, dreidel is not only fun, but its a game about equality…because it requires absolutely no skill at all - everyone’s on the same level.  I learned, however that the classic game can be pretty boring.  That’s why I sat down with Jewish Joural Senior Editor Adam Wills, a dreidel expert.  Together we learned basic play along with a new game…upside-down dreidel. 

    After the game, as always come light the Chanukah candles with us.

    The Pico-Robertson neighborhood in West Los Angeles (The Hood) is full of many wonderful things (see Jay’s post below), and today I saw a marvelous example as I drove to work —an SUV with a huge, lit Chanukah menorah on top.

    For those of you who don’t know, I’m a big Pico Blvd. fan.  The road…the lights…the people—all Jewish, for the most part.  That’s why I decided to light Day 4 of the Chanukah candles there.  But on a street with so much culture, it might be surprising to you that I chose to light... read on
