    Every neighborhood has its gathering places.

    In my neighborhood, you'll find one if you head west on Pico Boulevard from Robertson Boulevard, past the ethnic aromas of the "center" hood and into the kosher Ice Blended Mochas of the "west" hood, where, right next to an Office Depot,...

  • There’s A Message in the Sounds of the Shofar

    The approach of Rosh Hashanah always takes me back in memory to my bar mitzvah, which took place on Shabbat Shuvah -- the Sabbath of Repentance that comes between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

    Two weighty questions preoccupied me that day in 1964. One: what did it mean that God...

  • Fit L.A. - Let’s Take a ‘J-Walk’ Around the Block

    I enjoy walking if it's through a store during a sale or to show off a grandchild. But walking for the pure fun of it isn't fun for me. The last time I exercised was when Ed Sullivan introduced the Beatles, and I jumped up and down in the living room as they played.

    Too many "When are you due?" comments that came weeks after I gave birth to my second child were all the motivation I needed to reclaim my body. I had gained 60 pounds with my first child, but I bounced back into shape with little effort. Now I was five years older, recovering from...

    No one asked me to my senior prom. Jon asked Liz, Steve asked Jen, Brian asked me how to ask Kim, but my dance card remained empty. I sulked, I cried, I listened to Monster Ballads.

    I swore my life was over. Then I found inspiration in an article on famous women who never went to...

  • Sharon Loses Some Influence With Bush

    After President Bush's late July meetings with the Israeli and Palestinian prime ministers, one thing is clear: Ariel Sharon no longer will have things all his own way in Washington.

    Bush pointedly expressed admiration and respect for Mahmoud Abbas, the new Palestinian Authority...

  • Fierce Determination

    I admit, it doesn't sound pleasant. You enter a room that's been heated to above 100 degrees. The heat isn't as suffocating as the odor, a wall of smell that hits you like a thousand stinky shoes.

    You inhale the scent of sweaty armpits and groins, of excreted toxins, byproducts of...
