We moved into our house in Venice almost 18 years ago this week. We’d been house hunting for months and had despaired of finding anything on the Westside for less than a bazillion dollars.... read full article

  • ‘The Wolf’ and the Jewish problem

    By Rob Eshman

    December 31, 2013 | 1:54 pm

    “The Wolf of Wall Street” is nauseating, pornographic and soul-crushing — and you have to see it.

    You have to see it, because you — meaning society, Jews, all of us as individuals — have to face the questions it raises about money, wealth and morality.

  • Chanukah at the White House

    By Rob Eshman

    December 6, 2013 | 3:36 pm

    My new favorite way to celebrate Chanukah is lighting candles with Barack Obama.

    The White House Chanukah Party was held Dec 5, a day after Chanukah.  It was my first time attending the annual event, which President George W. Bush began in 2001.  I don’t expect it’s one of those...

  • What's next for Iran?

    By Rob Eshman

  • Stuffed: Thanksgiving on Hope Street

    By Rob Eshman

    Last Sunday, my job was to make stuffing for 400 people. I said I’d do it because there’s a part of me that prefers to forget that it’s been 25 years since I was a caterer, and I assumed it would be as easy now as it was then.

    A media firestorm kicked up last week after Mother Jones broke the story that President George W. Bush was to be the keynote speaker at the annual fundraiser of the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute on Nov. 14. 

    I blogged about the news as soon as I heard about it, and I’ve now...

  • My lunch with a Los Angeles Tea Partier

    By Rob Eshman

    October 23, 2013 | 12:13 pm

    Of the 3,977 angry e-mails I received last week, one stood out.

    “I am a Jew, a member of Temple Emanuel in Los Angeles, and the founder of the largest local, grass-roots Tea Party group in Los Angeles called the Hancock Park Patriots,” Mark Sonnenklar wrote.

  • Judaism in Poland: It’s Warsaw, Jake

    By Rob Eshman

    October 16, 2013 | 1:48 pm

    You would think that when the Polish edition of Forbes, the internationally respected financial magazine, publishes a front-page exposé on the disappearance of tens of millions of dollars of Holocaust restitution funds, Jews everywhere would be outraged and demand an immediate,...
