  • Seeing Yourself in Torah

    By Beit T'shuvah

    March 7, 2014 | 1:08 pm

    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    With the opening of our new space at 8847 Venice Blvd., I have been thinking about how I got to where I am in life from where I was some 26+ years ago. I was locked up for the 2nd time and all I had was a Prayer Book and a Chumash, a book with the entire...

  • Shabbat Shalom to the Angels Among Us

    November 8, 2013 | 8:27 am

    This Shabbat, Jews all over the world will read the Torah portion Vayetze. It's a great portion - they all are, of course, but this one really is especially rich. We meet Leah and Rachel, and watch as their father's trickery ensures Jacob will marry both. We celebrate the births of...

  • An Encounter with God

    By Ilana Angel

    May 3, 2012 | 9:16 am

    I believe in God and find myself talking to him most days.  I pray every morning when I get up, and again before I go to bed.  I have faith that he is with me, and while I don’t think he can answer my prayers, he brings me peace.  Having him listen provides me with the answers I...

  • Lost Treasures, Home Movies, Memory Lane & a Surprise Visit from Heaven

    By Ilana Angel

    October 2, 2011 | 5:25 pm

    Last week I was looking through some family photos looking for a picture of my dad.  It’s a photograph that was taken in 1962, shortly before my parents met, and for some reason I needed to see it.  It is a great picture and I’ve got it posted with this blog.  My dad was 24 years...

  • Men in Black

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    March 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The 74th Annual Academy Awards program will be remembered, at least by me, for women's gowns with faux see-through gauze fronts and men's suit jackets down to the knees.

    Sunday night. For my town, Malibu, Oscar night is a kind of Yom Kippur. Roads are deserted; the local restaurants...
