Is Islam a religion of war or of peace? Is it both? How did it start? What are its connections to Judaism?

  • Reading ‘Jewish’

    By David Suissa

    I heard recently that some people have complained that this column is too "Orthodox" -- that there's too much focus on the frum and kosher side of Judaism. Since this column is about an Orthodox neighborhood, that's like complaining that a hockey writer spends too much time writing...

    If I were the boss of L.A. Jewry, I'd make it easier for French Jews to move to Los Angeles. Why? Because many of them would love to live here. And judging from those that have already settled here, they boost the local economy, they enhance our quality of life, and they love their...

    It's sexy and titillating to read about people getting kicked out of synagogues, which was the subject of a cover story in this paper a few weeks ago.

    I don't know about you, but I got this frisson of excitement while reading the story, like when you can't take your eyes off a...

    Laura Benichou was born on June 9, 1998, with a hole in her heart. This hole probably saved her life, because she was also born without her main pulmonary artery.

    The blood had to go somewhere, so it went through the hole. Her condition would take too long to explain, but one result...

    It's one of the quirks of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood. There's a movement that owns a huge block on Pico Boulevard right in the middle of the hood, runs a preschool, elementary, middle and high school for girls on that same block, has official or unofficial connections with six...

    Rabbi Effie Golberg is in a bind. It's late Friday night and he's got about 60 noisy teenagers at his home in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood.

    Right now, they are sampling five different cholents, as part of his first-ever Cholent Cook-Off.

    But there's a problem: Cholent No. 4...

    You can hang out for years at the Pico-Robertson intersection: Shop for fixtures at McNoon Crystal Lighting, get grande drips at Starbucks, carpets at Moghaddam Rugs, mezzuzahs at Schmulies, a Hollywood head shot at Award Studios, some Zantac at Walgreens after you had a pastrami at...
