  • ZOA L.A. office in doubt

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    November 8, 2012 | 12:55 pm

    Citing budgetary pressures, the Zionist Organization of American (ZOA) will vacate the small office it has rented in The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles headquarters on Wilshire Boulevard later this month. 

    The pro-Israel nonprofit exercised an opt-out clause in October,...

  • The Land of Hollywood—Eretz Hollywood

    By  Orit Arfa

    August 14, 2008 | 4:36 pm

    Recently, I met with a headshot photographer in the Hollywood hills, off Laurel Canyon. I had already taken headshots with another photographer, but I wasn't thrilled with them. They weren't cheap either, so I was frustrated to chart the photography frontier yet again and shell out...
  • I remember Gush Katif

    By  Orit Arfa

    August 10, 2008 | 3:58 pm

    The third anniversary of the 'Disengagement' is upon us with the coming of Tisha B'Av, and I'm not sure how many Jewish newspapers are covering it.

    We've forgotten about the good people of Gush Katif, Gaza -- their spiritual and physical suffering after being left homeless by the...
  • Extra Extra: How to get a SAG voucher

    By  Orit Arfa

    So I was sitting in “holding” barely shaded by the hot sun in Long Beach where they were filming the TV show Dexter. I had woken up at 5 a.m. again, very tired, when some guy asks the AD (assistant director), “what’s the secret to getting SAG vouchers?” He’s been working...

  • The Industry, Israel and Idealism with Danny Sussman

    I managed to crash (with advance approval) an exclusive event for Birthright Israel alumni at a sushi restaurant in Westwood this week. For Jews who live on another planet, Birthright Israel is program that gives Jews ages 18-26 a free educational trip to Israel. It’s not my fault I...

  • VIDEO: Orit’s Adventures in Hollywood: Extra, extra—view all about it

    By  Orit Arfa

    June 26, 2008 | 7:07 pm

    My initiation into Hollywood has begun—in downtown LA where I booked my first acting gig as an “extra” for a Fox TV pilot.

    It was a 12-hour shoot, consisting mostly of walking up and down an office set looking busy.

    I met a nice man named Kurt (aka EZ), an aspiring filmmaker, who I was privileged to commission as my personal cinematographer for the day.

     

  • Sex and the column

    By  Orit Arfa

    June 5, 2008 | 2:29 pm

    One of the first things I did when I arrived in my hometown of Los Angeles for the summer was to rush with my friend Lori to see "Sex and the City" on opening night.

    We weren't the only ones.

    The movie was sold out all over Los Angeles, but as committed fans, we made the trek to...

  • 10 dating tips for men

    By  Orit Arfa

    May 29, 2008 | 2:30 pm

    I don't think I've enjoyed enough successful relationships to justify my doling out advice to men about how to sweep a woman off her lonely sofa and into a date with him.

    But maybe that's because I haven't enjoyed enough successful dates. Dating is not only an art, but a skill, and...

    The Great Shave



    Loved your video on getting a haircut and shave on Lag b'Omer. I think it's great that you raise awareness about our customs and traditions.

    I think you made one faux pas, however. Religious Jews don't allow a razor to come in contact with their face when shaving,...
