  • The Darfur Genocide Is Still on

    By James D. Besser

    September 22, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Jews aren't among those being killed, raped and displaced in the Darfur region of Sudan, but the situation there is nonetheless a Jewish disaster.

    The slogan, "never again," the redeeming lesson of the Holocaust, is turning into a farce in the African nation, as world leaders...

    Discrimination Suit Tossed Out

    A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit in which tenants alleged a Jewish landlord evicted them for sharing their apartment with a non-Jew. U.S. District Court Judge Gary Allen Feess threw out the lawsuit on technical grounds, saying the tenants should...

  • Class Notes: Library’s PR Prize

    By Julie G Fax

    June 30, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    This calendar earned its dates with destiny. The 2004-2005 calendar of the Jewish Community Library of Los Angeles won a spot in the American Library Association's "Best of Show" for library PR at the organization's annual conference June 26 in Chicago. The Family Calendar of events...

  • Sudan Support Marks Memorial Day

    By David Finnigan

    June 2, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Two events about two distinct crimes against humanity -- both in Sudan -- attracted strong Jewish community interest during the Memorial Day weekend.

    At least 600 Southern California Jews attended synagogue services around the Southland on Thursday evening, May 26, marking an end to...

    Jewish Festivals of Yore

    Rob Eshman does not have to apologize for sounding like a cranky old-timer in his lament about the Jewish festivals of yore ("A Bigger Sunday," May 27). Much has changed since I participated in the Rancho Park festivities with my children. If attendance at...

  • Rabbis Call for Day of Fasting for Darfur

    By Julie G Fax

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Because the quintessential Jewish celebration -- of life, of survival, of victory -- always involves food, it only makes sense that a Jewish response to tragedy involves fasting.

    Rabbis from all denominations are calling upon Jews in Los Angeles to participate in a day of fasting,...

  • Pray for the Innocent of Darfur

    By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    "The evil that men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones." Shakespeare's comment remains pertinent in our times.

    Evil acts enjoy great publicity. Every inch of graffiti on the walls of schools is photographed, and every ethnic or racial outrage resonates in...

  • Come Fill Fatima’s Cup With Hope

    By Rabbi Lee Bycel

    April 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Ten days ago, I was in the Al Serif Camp in Darfur, Sudan, with Fatima, the girl you see in the photograph. She lives there with 15,000 other refugees.

    Not only has she lost her home and much of her family, she has seen horrors no child should ever imagine, let alone endure....

    700 Gather to Protest Suicide Bombings

    With the charred remains of Israeli Bus No. 19 as a backdrop, about 700 Angelenos gathered Jan. 30 at the Museum of Tolerance to take a stand against suicide bombings.

    In a show of support with the community, guest speakers such as Los Angeles...

  • Living Torah

    By Rabbi Debra Orenstein

    December 30, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    Imagine yourself forgotten, without anyone to protect you. Ruling powers are oppressing you and killing your children. The purported

    "reason" is economic, but a deep hatred based on mere difference underlies this attempted genocide. Helpless, you cry out. Who, in heaven and on...

  • Holocaust Deja Vu

    By Karen Alexander

    November 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    There was a time when Dora Apsan Sorell could have really used the $3,043 she received from the German government last summer. The check was meant to compensate Sorell for her slave labor during the Holocaust.

    But the 83-year-old Auschwitz survivor and retired doctor who lives in...

  • Jewish Groups Vow to Help Sudanese

    By Gaby Wenig

    October 21, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    On Yom Kippur, as his congregants at B'nai David Judea were fasting and praying for the year ahead, Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky asked them to think not about themselves, but about people being killed in Darfur, Sudan.

    "I asked people to make a contribution to one of the relief...

  • A Stand for Darfur

    By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

    September 23, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Don't throw away the newspaper! Newspapers are the day-to-day records of history. Judaism has a passion for meaning. Events have meaning. What do events mean? How do changes instruct us? Look around at the world. Every event has something to teach us. As the Zohar instructed: "There...

  • Sudan—Why We Can’t Give Up on the U.N.

    By Rabbi Robin Podolsky

    August 5, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Over 30,000 people have been brutally murdered in the Darfur region of Sudan. At least 120,000 are living in tent camps, now being hammered by rains that turn the dust to mud. Diseases that thrive in the soggy ground continue, along with malnutrition, to drive the body count higher.

  • A Dollar a Day

    By Rob Eshman

    July 8, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Those Sally Struthers Save the Children television ads always break down dollar-by-dollar how our donations work. Ten cents per day buys a starving child a meal. A quarter gets the child vaccines. Give a dollar and they put a roof over his or her head.

    Funny thing is that our...

  • Ethnic Cleansing in Sudan Is Still Genocide

    By Ruth W. Messinger

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    As early as March of this year, humanitarian organizations were issuing warnings of ethnic cleansing in Darfur, Sudan. For a long time these warnings continued to be ignored by most of the mainstream and Jewish media, and Americans remain virtually unaware of the atrocities occurring...
