  • The Industry, Israel and Idealism with Danny Sussman

    By  Orit Arfa

    July 11, 2008 | 4:27 am

    I managed to crash (with advance approval) an exclusive event for Birthright Israel alumni at a sushi restaurant in Westwood this week. For Jews who live on another planet, Birthright Israel is program that gives Jews ages 18-26 a free educational trip to Israel. It’s not my fault I... read on

  • VIDEO: Extra Extra—Orit travels to Beirut

    By  Orit Arfa

    My Middle-Eastern looks helped get me an extra role as a Beirut café patron.

    When the TV show is aired, I doubt anyone will see me—I’m in the back sipping coffee, and the scene has no dialogue.

    The Second Lebanon War, I assume, is over in the story, and it’s a peaceful spring... read on

  • VIDEO: Orit’s Adventures in Hollywood: Extra, extra—view all about it

    My initiation into Hollywood has begun—in downtown LA where I booked my first acting gig as an “extra” for a Fox TV pilot.

    It was a 12-hour shoot, consisting mostly of walking up and down an office set looking busy.

    I met a nice man named Kurt (aka EZ), an aspiring filmmaker, who I was privileged to commission as my personal cinematographer for the day.

  • You don’t mess with the Orit

    By  Orit Arfa

    June 24, 2008 | 5:52 pm

    So I really wasn't expecting to like the new Adam Sandler movie, You Don't Mess with the Zohan. Why would a heroic Israel counter-terrorist agent who's an expert at whipping evil Arab tuchus give up his heroism to become a hair stylist in New York, as the Zohan says, to make people's... read on
  • ‘The God Blog’ is the best blog, Los Angeles Press Club says

    By The Web Guy

    June 22, 2008 | 12:54 am

    I just got back from the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, downtown, where Brad A. Greenberg’s The God Blog, published here at JewishJournal.com, was named best individual weblog at the Fiftieth Anniversary Los Angeles Press Club awards banquet.

    I txt msg’d Brad (I think he is gambling in Vegas) with the news and he msg’d back that he was ‘shocked!’

    We’re not shocked; we love Brad and we love The God Blog. 

    Mazal tov, bro, you deserve it!

  • Introducing God’s best tasting tomato

    By The Web Guy

    June 17, 2008 | 10:45 pm

    God typically releases some of his strongest new entries in the delicious fruit and veggie category every year around this time—including the best tasting tomato you can buy.

    This tomato—found in your local market wherever ‘heirloom tomatoes’ are sold—is the Purple Cherokee or Cherokee Purple Tomato.

    Look for it. Smell it.  Buy it.  Eat it.

    I prefer to eat it out of hand with just a sprinkling of kosher salt.

    Mmmmmm.

    Next—God’s best fruit.

  • Meet ‘The Goldbergs,’  black and white TV sitcom stars of the 1950s

    By The Web Guy

    I don’t think we had a TV in 1955.

    I remember going next door to the Greenspan’s house to watch ‘Howdy Doody’ until my mom would knock on the wall three times and Jeanette Greenspan would send me home for dinner.

    I certainly don’t remember ‘The Goldbergs’—apparently a big show... read on
