  • 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...

  • The Real Secret of Victoria’s Secret - UPDATED

    By Ilana Angel

    March 13, 2013 | 12:03 am

    On my way to work on Tuesday I heard that three Victoria’s Secret Angels were going to be at The Beverly Center mall doing an appearance.  One of the girls was Candice Swanepeol.  She is a South African beauty that serves as the screensaver for my 17 year old son’s laptop.  In an...

  • Take Me Out to the Bar Mitzvah…

    March 18, 2009 | 3:11 am

    Roger Owens has been pitching with the Dodgers for 50 years, ever since the team moved from Brooklyn. His accuracy is uncanny, and he remains a crowd favorite. He throws under the leg, behind the back and even two at a time, sometimes more than 30 rows back.

    Owens, also known as the...

  • Look up to see angels

    November 12, 2008 | 11:39 pm

    Vayera is a rich portion throughout, but I linger on the iconic images in the first lines: Abraham sits at the opening of his tent in the heat of the desert day, recovering from his circumcision. He looks up and sees God, in the form of three men, often described as angels, standing...

  • Within Us

    By Rabbi Karen Deitsch

    Once upon a time, as God created the world, He decided to make beings in His image. As he generated his own reflection in man and woman, the angels got word of the project, and were consumed with jealousy.
     
    "How unfair!" they cried. "Those humans will have it all. They get to...
  • A Banner Day

    By Rabbi Zoë Klein

    May 25, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    At the beginning of the month, I joined the hundreds of thousands of people who marched from MacArthur Park to the

    La Brea Tar Pits in support of basic rights for immigrants, the strangers among us. I was worried about my family becoming separated in the throng of marchers, so I...

  • Angels in America

    By Rob Eshman

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Angels are everywhere in America these days, and a lot of them are tacky. When I was growing up you saw them once a year, adorning Christmas trees. Since then they've swarmed across the thin border that divides religious imagery from kitsch. Gift shops stock angel T-shirts, angel...

  • Making Sense of My Mother’s Death

    By Rabbi Eli Hecht

    January 29, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Recently, I was working at my school office planning a day of classes and interviews when I was notified of an incoming call from New York. It was my cousin, Shion, a hospital chaplain and a fine rabbi.

    "Have you heard the news?" he asked.

    I thought his voice sounded pensive and...
