  • Lessons From ‘My Jewtor’

    By Teresa Strasser

    September 2, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    We're about the same age and, from a distance, it almost looks like we could be sisters. But that's where the similarities end between Melissa and me.

    Melissa is what I call "My Jewtor," a woman assigned to me by a local rabbi to tutor me about Judaism. For months now, I've been...

  • The Man Behind a Quiet Revolution

    By Julie G Fax

    August 26, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Rabbi Richard Levy was in Reform rabbinical school the first time he attended a traditional morning minyan. It was a requirement for his liturgy class, but for Levy, who some 35 years later is one of the most influential Reform rabbis in the country, it became much more.

    "I found that...

  • The On-Ramp to Meaning

    By Rabbi Shawn Fields-Meyer

    August 26, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    In Los Angeles, the hardest part of starting a big trip can be getting from the entrance ramp onto the freeway. I sit impatiently, watching the cars in the carpool lane flying by, and wait for the line of vehicles in front of me to get past the green light that allows just one car to...

    Within minutes of my opening the National Jewish Outreach Program (NJOP) Virtual Shabbat CD-ROM, people gathered around my desk. Klezmer music was coming from my computer, and kitchen cabinets, appliances and refrigerators were all dancing on my screen.

    After an introduction by Rabbi...

  • The Differences Between Men and Women

    By Rabbi Michelle Missaghieh

    July 15, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    All of us have observed an event or participated in a conversation only to come away with a perception of what happened that's completely different from the interpretations of others.

    I imagine Moses' final speech to the Jewish people was such an experience, especially between men and...

  • All Jews Count

    By Rabbi Elazar Muskin

    July 15, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    It is a familiar sight. On each flight to Israel, in the back of the plane, a minyan gathers for services.

    It was no different on my flight to Israel last year. Although I was participating in an Israel Bonds rabbinic mission, our delegation from Los Angeles was small, and we didn't...

  • Missionary Passions

    July 1, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Five years after his death, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson seems to be influencing more people than he ever did in life. But not in ways he might have expected.

    It's ironic, perhaps. Pundits were sure that Schneerson's demise in June 1994 would lead to the disintegration of the...
