    Last night after seeing a movie at what seems to be the cultural center of West Los Angeles Jewish life — the Landmark Theatres at the Westside Pavilion — we walked over to the new Lenny's Deli.

    Lenny's filled the void left by Juniors — and I'm talking about a literal void.... read on

    For two years, from 1984-1986, I lived in Jerusalem.  I went to learn Hebrew, to work as a writer, to break up a relationship without facing the breakup.

    I had been living in San Francisco after college, typing out plays and freelance articles. I was trying my best to be a... read on
