    By Danielle Berrin

    November 16, 2012 | 1:16 pm

    Last week in Los Angeles, Leonard Cohen fell to his knees.

    He did this a half-dozen times over the course of his three-hour show at the Nokia Theatre, because it’s all part of his act — and at 78, Cohen is not about to start trading off his trademark moves. He still wears that...

    By  Orit Arfa

    August 5, 2008 | 5:16 pm

    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...

    By Josh Lipowsky

    February 28, 2008 | 5:00 pm

    The American male is broken and the only way to fix him is to redefine what makes him a success, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach says, adding that the American male is made to feel like a failure and always in competition with those around him.

    "You're trained to look behind you to see who's...

    Workmen's Circle Celebrates 100

    It's not every centenarian who can celebrate his birthday with full-throated songs and Yiddish jokes, but the Workmen's Circle/Arbeter Ring did just that in marking its 100th anniversary year in California with high good humor, leavened with a bit of...

  • Note to new grads: it’s just the beginning!

  • Working Girl

    By Carin Davis

    June 7, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I'm a multitasker. I can type an e-mail and conduct a conference call; I can watch a reel and read a memo. I can rub my tummy and pat my head, or pat your tummy and rub your head -- which sounds like a lot more fun.

    Point is, I can do two things at once and do them both well. But...
  • A not-so-random sampling of the Class of 2007

    June 7, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Every year when I send out that first e-mail asking educators and leaders from around the city to nominate high school seniors for this "Outstanding Seniors" article, the angst begins. I get the names of dozens of nominees, and through a one-paragraph description I'm supposed to...
  • Some students follow road less traveled to college

    By Julie G Fax

    May 24, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    The obsession among middle-class Jews about getting into the best possible college is a well-worn stereotype: Parents begin agonizing even before their children are accepted into preschool.

    Kids are enrolled in an endless array of extracurriculars -- piano lessons, ballet, soccer,...

    By George Robinson

    January 18, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    By Nick Street

    November 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Sherwood Schwartz is not one to complain. Which isn't to say he has nothing to complain about.

    "Right now I have a torn rotator cuff," he said during an interview at his home in Beverly Hills. "So I guess I could complain about my arm all day. But what the hell?" The three old...

  • Single, 60, and invisible no more

    By Esther W. Hersh

    October 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I'm over 60, single, considered sexy by some and ignored by others.

    My experience is that if you are over 60, single and a woman you're somewhat invisible. Unfortunately, we live in a youth-oriented society where emphasis is placed on the young. So I started to make mental notes...

    By Carin Davis

    October 12, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    ChivasUSA's Jonathan Bornstein is the top contender for the 2006 Major League Soccer (MLS) Rookie of the Year award. Not bad for the Los Alamitos native who was not invited to the MLS combine and was chosen in the fourth round (of four) of 2006 MLS SuperDraft (37th pick overall).

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    March 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    When Liz Mermin flew to Afghanistan to shoot her documentary, "The Beauty Academy of Kabul" in 2003, she was consumed by dread. Never mind that she had previously trailed abortion doctors dodging murderous pro-lifers for her film, "On Hostile Ground."

    Now she was heading for even...

  • Friedan: Universal Woman, Particular Jew

    By Blu Greenberg

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Betty Friedan was, like most ordinary mortals, a mass of contradictions.

    She was loud and sometimes imperious, yet she could be charming, funny, gentle, kind and winsome. A public persona, at times her ego needed massaging, but she remained surprisingly unassuming and...

    By Tom Tugend

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Elliott Gould appeared for our interview at the Chabad House near UCLA, his venue of choice, wearing a baseball cap over his unruly salt-and-pepper locks, an open-necked shirt and glasses.

    That's quite a change from the three-piece, pin-striped suit and neatly combed hair he sports...

  • Midlife Reinvention Not So Uncommon

    By Ellie Kahn

    February 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    John F. Kennedy once said, "When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents danger, and the other represents opportunity."

    Life is full of change -- in fact, one of the only things we can predict and count on in life is that things won't stay...

  • Written in the Jewish Stars

    December 29, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    We're not saying we believe any of this, mind you, but, yes, Jews, too, like to peek at horoscopes. But up until now, something's been missing -- that Jewish touch. Sure, you could count on Bubbe and Zayde to dispense career advice and to forecast general doom, but that hardly...
