    June 25, 2013 | 4:46 pm

    “It’s Only Rock And Roll…
     
    …but I like it.”  Those were the immortal words of the Rolling Stones.

    And I do. I do like rock and roll, especially when its practitioners like Israel -- or, at the very least, are benignly neutral towards it.

    Unfortunately, it would seem that...

    Operation Moses, the 1985 mission that airlifted thousands of persecuted Ethiopian Jews from Sudan to Israel, was a turbulent endeavor riddled with cultural, religious and personal conflicts. Families were torn apart, identities questioned and laws rewritten....

    March 13, 2008 | 5:53 pm

    I had no desire to see Shalom Hanoch in concert. I had never even heard of the guy.

    But my co-worker, an Israeli ex-pat who was a young woman during Hanoch’s heydey, insisted that I come with her to his Saturday night, March 8 concert at the Avalon in Hollywood. She wanted to...

  • Melting Pot for Peace

    By Gaby Wenig

    June 10, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It's hard to imagine a period when Jews and Arabs got along -- but that's apparently what they did from 800-1400 B.C.E., in the historical Al-Andalus period. In Spain and North Africa, Jews, Christians and Muslims got together and collaborated on arts and sciences to create one of...

    The first thing one notices about Theodore Bikel is the voice.

    March 4, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    If spoof dj Dr. Demento hosted a Purim show, he'd have to spotlight the Jewish band Shlock Rock. Shlock 'n' roll includes clever parodies of pop hits like "I Don't Get No Humentashen (based on the Stones' "Satisfaction") and "Achashverosh" (think Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus").

    For Purim...

    Ten years ago, it was a first -- and it's still an only. When Noreen Green established the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony (LAJS) in 1993, Los Angeles became the only city in the world with a resident symphony orchestra devoted to Jewish music, and the city maintains that unique status...
