  • Have Jews lost their mojo?

    I took a break from the hood the other night to speak to a large Conservative synagogue in Palos Verdes called Congregation Ner Tamid -- and I used a word that got me in trouble. The occasion was a showing of "Obsession" -- a documentary on the rise of radical Islam and the worldwide...

    If there's one subject that can spark a juicy debate among lovers of Israel, it is what to do with these millions of Jesus-loving evangelical Christians who love Israel to death.

    Personally, I'm blinded by how everybody picks on Israel, which makes me desperate to find anyone who...

    Next time I'll be more careful before I make fun of cheesecakes. You might recall that last week, I waxed plaintively at how the custom of serving dairy has come to dominate people's view of Shavuot -- and how the holiday could certainly use some better marketing to make it more...

    We want to save the planet, whether from global evil or global warming. When we talk about our own problems, we also...

    Jews are not a people suited for the status quo. We have a rebellious gene. We can't stand still.

    Look everywhere and you'll see signs of our restlessness.

    The Reform movement is debating whether it has gone too far in moving away from halacha (Jewish law). The Conservatives are...
  • Beyond Remembrance

    By David Suissa

    If you want to get in trouble in the Jewish world, critique anything that has to do with Holocaust remembrance. It's a pretty untouchable subject, and for good reason. The Holocaust is a horror that melts the human heart, especially the Jewish heart. I'm not immune.
