  • Pesach without wine

    March 21, 2013 | 3:23 am

    How can we have Passover without wine? This is a question that is asked of me each year as Passover approaches. I always answer that the blessing is over the fruit of the vine and grape juice is perfectly acceptable. I then ask a different set of questions.

    Passover is the...

  • The Bachelor: Tierra Runs Out of Meds

    By Ilana Angel

    February 12, 2013 | 4:43 pm

    We are now in St. Croix with Bachelor Sean and the remaining six women.  Two will go home this week leaving the final four for the hometown dates next week.  It is just so drawn out at this point.  Two hours is not needed.  By not needed of course I mean it is torturous.  This show...

  • U.S. entrepreneurs brewing something special in Israel

    September 13, 2011 | 7:31 pm

    It would be almost impossible to believe that an inventive Washington, D.C., caterer who created culinary events for Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush, an NYU-trained lawyer cum high-tech maven, and a successful New Jersey accountant would actually chuck their lucrative careers...

  • How Much Does it Cost to Hate Jews?  For John Galliano, it’s $8500.00

    By Ilana Angel

    September 8, 2011 | 6:43 pm

    Designer John Galliano finally had his day in court.  By “day”, of course I mean a whopping 6 minutes.  Galliano lost his job at Dior after he was caught on tape in a drunken stupor, bashing Jews, and today he was found guilty of “public insults toward persons on the basis of...

  • Jersey Shore: I am almost embarrassed to admit how much I love this show!

    By Ilana Angel

    August 19, 2011 | 3:03 pm

    Week three of Jersey Shore in Italy is once again brilliant.  Knowing there is no such thing as unscripted reality television, Jersey Shore shines in a sea of dullness because no matter how much MTV might try to stir up drama to make good television, the personalities of these kids...

  • Everyone is Suddenly Irish on March 17th!

    By Julia Bendis

    March 18, 2011 | 11:33 am

    Why does everyone become Irish on St. Patrick’s day?  Even the Jews.  When has it become a good thing for Jews to start drinking?  Have you ever seen Jewish people drink?  No, that’s because most of us can’t hold down our liquor, and its not pretty.

    I am definitely the “drinker” in...

  • Drinking does not drive the Purim celebration

    By Rabbi Dov Fischer

    March 11, 2011 | 12:03 pm

    We are an American generation sadly marred by excess, addiction, and reduced public morals. On line at the supermarket we see magazines that headline Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Spears, and Charlie Sheen.  Purim is around the corner, and the question arises: What’s the deal with...

  • Charlie Sheen is crazy; is he an anti-Semite too?

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    February 28, 2011 | 11:20 pm

    Charlie Sheen definitely does not have his life in order. And on the morning shows today he said some weird, wild stuff. Looks like he followed that up by ripping his both to the trades, which resulted in the remainder of the “Two and a Half Men” season being cancelled. A real loss...

  • The Nimoys: A father and son, with space between them

    September 24, 2008 | 10:26 pm

    When Adam Nimoy was growing up, he felt alienated from his famous father.

    Leonard Nimoy's work as the Vulcan Mr. Spock on "Star Trek" and his numerous other film and TV projects on both sides of the camera provided a comfortable West Coast lifestyle for his baby boom family.

  • VideoJew explores the Purim hangover…at Chabad Purim party

    By Jay Firestone

    March 27, 2008 | 12:33 pm

    Purim may be over, but the holiday is most likely still in our systems.  For me, the Purim hangover is never easy.  My body aches thanks to several consecutive sets of hora dancing.  My stomach aches from an overdose of flour, eggs and raspberry preservatives.  But most of all my...

  • Unmasking Purim’s vital meaning

    By Rabbi Sharon Brous

    March 1, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    It's a classic Jewish tale: Just when we feel comfortable and safe, nahafokh hu -- the whole world can turn upside down.

    Megillat Esther, read on Purim, reminds us that history is capricious and life is fragile; that willing or not, we must confront our powerlessness and...

  • Wanna drink? Think again!

    By Louis Keene

    March 1, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    This Purim will be the first test of a new teen anti-drinking campaign adopted by Los Angeles' Orthodox rabbis after a Simchat Torah debacle in which more than 100 teens were seen drinking publicly or intoxicated.

    The plan was adopted Nov. 14 at a meeting convened by Jewish Family...

  • Wines to Test the Palate, Pocketbook

    By J.D. Smith

    March 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Before I got married, the rabbi told us that there would be certain rituals, including the part where we drink twice from a Kiddush cup. The first sip represents our engagement, then some Hebrew stuff gets said, then the second sip symbolizes our marriage. I suggested that the wine...

  • Post-Bar Mitzvah Stress Disorder

    By Judy Gruen

    January 12, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Our youngest son has just celebrated his bar mitzvah, and I am recovering from a case of Post-Bar Mitzvah Stress Disorder. This is a seriously underreported malady, yet shockingly, the government has yet to allocate a single dollar to research. If this doesn't change soon, I'm going...

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

     

    Stand on any corner in Hancock Park or Beverlywood, says Avi Leibovic, and within 10 blocks you can find Orthodox teenagers engaged in weekly poker games, drug use, underage drinking and reckless sex.

    Not much has changed since Leibovic was a teenager in L.A.'s Orthodox...

  • No Wrong Way to End Yom Kippur Fast

    By Linda Morel

    September 23, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I grew up in a family that never seemed to do anything right. Our approach to Yom Kippur, for example, was mixed: My father and I observed it; my mother and brother did not. Returning from synagogue at the end of the day, Dad and I were starving, so we grabbed a couple of slices of...

  • Alcohol Dependency Not in Our Genes

    By Donna Abrahams

    May 6, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    A new study suggests that genes, not religion, may help explain why Jews generally have fewer problems with alcohol than Caucasians in general do.

    The study findings, which appeared in an issue of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, also suggest that the protective...

  • A Walk in Rick Orlov’s City Hall

    By Catherine Seipp

    April 8, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Rick Orlov of the Los Angeles Daily News, long known as the dean of City Hall reporters, is that rare media type who has no enemies. That's because he's long had a reputation for being an old-fashioned straight shooter who honors secrets not only in print, but also in hallway gossip....

  • Adults-In-Training Hopes and Fears

    December 11, 2003 | 6:59 pm

    "Why are you having a bar or bat mitzvah?" Larry Kligman, dean of students at Abraham Joshua Heschel Day School in Northridge, asks the school's 65 seventh-graders.

    "Tradition."

    "Fun."

    "Identity."

    "Heritage."

    The students are attending a one-day retreat, an event the school...

  • Painted Clowns

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 24, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    I'm drinking at a bar called the Dirty Horse on Hollywood Boulevard. Well, that's not the real name but I never got a look at the sign and that name seemed right.

    It fits the place, with its plastic pitchers of beer, painted clowns on black velvet, bowls of peanuts and the...

  • Alcohol Aftermath

    By Jane Ulman

    February 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    On Purim, the Talmud commands us to drink until we "don't know the difference between 'Blessed be Mordechai' and 'Cursed be Haman.'"

    Obviously, the talmudic rabbis never heard of "Just say no."

    But the commandment to drink till we're drunk is problematic, especially in a holiday...
