  • LettersConsider Jewish Officers

    June 12, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    The article entitled "LAPD Black and Blue" by Xandra Kayden (May 23) disturbed me. The tone of the article implied that Los Angeles police officers are not only brutal, but they routinely lie. As a police officer in the LAPD, I know that nothing is farther from the truth. I hold...

    The restaurant billboard advertised its Father's Day brunch in letters too large to miss.

    June 5, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    When I was 16, I used to cut school, take the E-train to Union Square and stand around listening to the Communist speakers rant about injustice. You could say I was passion-challenged, living in Queens and attending Jamaica High School.

    I was the kid who had a crush on television...

    After reading Sally Ogle Davis' review of my father's work, "In the Presence of Mine Enemies"("Submitted for Your Approval," Apr. 18), I must take exception to her presumption that my father "abandoned his Judaism." I am curious as to when Davis had the opportunity to sit and talk...

    May 29, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    When Mendel Moscowitz is transported from Brooklyn to ancient Egypt, the juxtaposition of a whiny New Yorker on the eve of the Exodus is supposed to create the setting for campy high jinks and musical hilarity.

    Billed as "Fiddler on the Roof" meets "The Ten Commandments," original...

  • Too Hot Kitchen?

    May 29, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Today the once-legendary Spanish Kitchen restaurant is a study in decay, the "K" missing from the neon sign, the arched storefront crumbling and covered with graffiti. It stands next door to the Yavneh Hebrew Academy, in the midst of a thriving Orthodox community on Beverly...

  • Our Trials of Faith

    By Linda Feldman

    May 22, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Recently, I watched a documentary about Adolf Eichmann, whose trial I had originally watched on television years ago. The only vivid memory I had from the courtroom drama was that of the protective glass booth the Israelis built for him.

    Now, I watched with eyes that were 30 years...

    We don't know who discovered water," Einstein said. But we do know one thing: "It wasn't a fish!" Why not a fish? Because a fish -- born into water, living, eating, breathing water -- is never sufficiently separated from water to become aware of its presence. The unnoticed condition...

  • A Woman’s Voice

    A few weeks ago, I saw my husband walking across the street, near the dry cleaners. He was wearing khakis, a beige shirt and the brown belt I bought him for his 48th birthday, the one with the gold buckle. I couldn't see the buckle, because I only saw him from behind. But I knew that...

  • LETTERSUJ Layoffs

    May 8, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    It appears that The Jewish Journal, in its haste to publish an article about "doings" at the University of Judaism, was prepared to forgo a great deal of accuracy. Most of the information reported in "UJ Layoffs" (May 2) was incorrect, including the actual number of layoffs (fewer...
