  • Seth Godin’s Wisdom

    By Samira Asemanfar

    November 21, 2011 | 4:31 pm

    Every entrepreneur needs to follow someone they admire. Why? To get inspired. To have someone to shadow, mentally. I have several people that I admire. One of them is Seth Godin, marketing genius, writer and entrepreneur. In today’s blog post he asks, “what is your competitive...

    August 25, 2009 | 2:25 pm

    By now Ron Bloom’s professional road to becoming the Obama administration’s car czar has been widely reported. Missing from the coverage, however, has been any mention of those formative years at Jewish summer camp.

    March 31, 2009 | 6:54 pm

    The United States will seek to join the U.N. Human Rights Council, reversing its policy of shunning the council and prompting concern among some Jewish groups.

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    Even from Paris, I can tell that John McCain is in big trouble. 

    As the Wall Street crisis hit like a tidal wave, Obama’s support has jumped.  Meanwhile, Sarah Palin’s support has dropped like a stone.  The ABC talking heads tore McCain apart this morning.  (I can pick this up...

    By Jacob Berkman

    October 26, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A dearth of leadership talent is affecting not only the likes of Yahoo! and Microsoft, it's also wreaking havoc on the Jewish day school system as schools find it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain qualified heads.

    Here's Marty Kaplan blogging on Huffington Post about suggested treatments for Mel Gibson's "problem":

  • U.S. Must Act on Iran Nuclear Threat

    By Rep. Brad Sherman

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Outrageous statements by Iran's president calling for Israel's destruction put Iran back on the front page for a few days in October. Such belicose rhetoric should surprise no one; the destruction of Israel has been Iranian state policy since the 1979 revolution.

    September 26, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    So do you think America should go to war with Iraq?

  • The Necessary Fight

    In Jewish communal boardrooms in New York and Washington, all eyes are focused on the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the tricky matter of U.S.-Israeli relations in a changing era.

    But in communities around the country, many Jewish leaders have another big worry: the...

  • Mixed Message to Bush

    By Matthew E. Berger

    April 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    One message from this week's rally at the Capitol was clear -- solidarity with the State of Israel and its people. Much less clear was the message to the Bush administration. Signs, speakers and more than 100,000 demonstrators touted support for the U.S. war on terrorism. But few...

  • Where’s the Outrage?

    By Douglas Mirell

    April 5, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    For those who believed President George W. Bush would chart a moderate course, the administration's first two months must come as a rude awakening. Those who were lulled into believing that Bush was a compassionate conservative have now discovered that only the latter half of this...

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    June 15, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    There are few times when a sense of community is more necessary than when our lives are touched by death. Perhaps that is why more than 400 people from every point along the spectrum of the Los Angeles Jewish community came together Sunday at the site of the new Mount Sinai Memorial...
