    Tinseltown and Shoah

    I was disappointed to see in the review of "Imaginary Witness" the old stereotype of Jewish moguls as cackling Shylocks counting their money from the German market, while their co-religionists were being murdered by Hitler ("How Tinseltown Shaped the Worldview...

    Election Coverage

    That old joke has no place in your paper (Cover, Feb. 1). Jews, like everyone else, should be voting for who is best for the country; not who is best for the Jews.

    In addition to being wrong, it is grist for the mill of anti-Semites.
    What is good for the country...

    Ugly Neighborhood

    Without reading a word of the inside article, I write because I am distressed about the depiction on the front page ("An Ugly Day in the Neighborhood," March 3).

    I am all too familiar with many issues that cause divisiveness among Jews, secular, religious, somewhat...

  • Holy Moly! Robertson Apologizes

    By Jewish Journal Staff

    January 19, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The Rev. Pat Robertson has long preached as though God is on his side -- including when he recently cast the stroke suffered by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as God's punishment for "dividing" the Holy Land by pulling Israel out of Gaza.

    But last week, Robertson apparently...

    Words of concern and sympathy poured in from all over the world after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a major stroke. Especially striking were supportive comments from quarters that had once cast Sharon as an inflexible hawk -- or even a war criminal -- but who now gave...

  • After the Miscarriage

    By Andrea Lesch Weiss

    November 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    When my doctor informed me, in the seventh week of my first pregnancy, that I had miscarried, he accompanied the news with what he surely thought was a comforting idea.

    He told me that God wanted perfect children, and this was His way of making it happen.

    It was the first of several...

    "Sex, Murder and a Double Latte" (Red Dress Ink, $17.95)

    Like her protagonist Sophie Katz, Kyra Davis has skin the color of a "well-brewed latte." That's why she has spent a large portion of her life fielding comments about her ethnicity.

    There was her supervisor at a clothing...

    My mother sounded upset when she called the other day. "What's wrong, Ma?" I asked. "I don't know what's going on or where I am she said. "Who are these people with me?"

    I reminded Mom of her move to Los Angeles three years ago, and her life at a San Fernando Valley board and care....

  • Where You Stand

    By Rabbi Allen I. Freehling

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    We are standing before God and God is standing before us -- especially during this particular time, when certain fundamental liberties are being denied individuals and when justice is being withheld from specific groups -- all in the name of "homeland security." This week's Torah...

  • Anti-Semitism Stirs Aliyah

    Whether or not the French ambassador to England called Israel "that sh*tty little country" is almost beside the point.

    Ambassador Daniel Bernard allegedly made the comment at a dinner party two weeks ago in London.

    "Why should the world be in danger of World War III because of...

    A New York Knicks basketball player has more to worry about this week than his team's current opponent in the NBA playoffs -- despite his apology.

    The American Jewish Congress (AJCongress) is calling on Katherine Harris, Florida's secretary of state, to bench point guard Charlie...

  • Grammar Police

    My name is Teresa Strasser and I've made grammatical errors.

    My story begins with a piece I wrote several months ago. Give me a second, I need to compose myself.

    It's hard to admit this, even to a group as supportive and nurturing as you. Let me just take a deep breath. Okay, here...
