  • Getting to know my dad, again

    By Gary Wexler

    June 14, 2011 | 5:52 pm

    My 93-year-old father emerged as a different person when my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s five years ago. He became independent, assertive, interested and engaging. When my mother died in October, he even became a bit spiritual. He’s certainly not the exhausted father...

  • Dancing on edge of memories in former café space

    By Gary Wexler

    March 30, 2011 | 10:31 am

    There is a tiny two-block alleyway in West Los Angeles that runs on a diagonal from South Barrington Avenue east to Pico Boulevard. The backs of small industrial buildings border one side. On the other, a chain link fence shields a packinghouse or shipping service. To look at it, you...

  • ‘Gary Wexler Is Miserable’

    By David Suissa

    August 30, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    t was one of my favorite ads. At the time, my upstart ad agency was competing with a hot shop called Wexler & Shalek. They had a reputation for always winning creative awards. But one year, for some reason, they struck out. So what did their creative head, Gary Wexler, do? He took...
  • Craig Prizant, philanthropreneurship and evangelicals

    Craig Prizant

    As a former fundraising professional at the Jewish Federation, I read with interest your story about the firing of Craig Prizant (a gentleman I do not know) ("Federation May Face Lawsuit Over Fundraiser Prizant's Firing," Feb. 27).

    There has been a revolving door of...

  • I rode on the wild side—when road rage met anti-Semitism

    By Gary Wexler

    January 11, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I am safe on the plane now.

    On the way to Los Angeles International Airport this afternoon, I thought I was about to be murdered.

    In the run-up to a weeklong business trip, I called the car service I've been using for years to pick me up at my home. The driver arrived promptly at...

  • Letters to the Editor

    August 17, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The Left

    Gary Wexler ("Left-Leaning Jewish Groups Out-of-Touch Now," Aug. 4) ought not to be surprised by the wrath of his former compatriots in last week's Letters to the Editor. It is the standard fury against an apostate.

    Instead, he is to be commended for doing what too few of...

  • Don’t Discard Liberal Jewish Groups

    By David Pine

    August 3, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Gary Wexler levels the charges that Americans for Peace Now (APN), along with other organizations associated with American Jewish liberals, are obsolete. He writes that we are ignoring the "real" threats facing Israel such as those emanating from Syria and Iran, that we are out of...

  • Visit to Another Israel

    By Gary Wexler

    February 5, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    It's time we stop kidding ourselves that Israel has survived well through the last three years. The country is unraveling at the seams.

    My wife and three kids wanted to be in Israel for the winter break. We had a great time together as a family of adults, being with our Israeli...

  • Professional-Lay Relations Need Examining

    By Gary Wexler

    October 17, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    When people query me as to who our clients are, if the person is Jewish, I often answer, "Half our clients are Jewish organizations. And the other half are people who treat us really nicely."

    Almost always people laugh at the response. Once, however, at a Jewish event in San...

  • Funding Jerusalem

    By Gaby Wenig

    May 2, 2002 | 7:59 pm

    So what does it take to get a charity started in Los Angeles? How can a project be incubated just enough to get people excited so that they will one day open their checkbooks and start signing?

    This was the question that was seeking an answer recently in Brentwood, where the...

  • A Lesson in Friendship

    By Gary Wexler

    November 23, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    I had met Reuven on a midnight coach in London, traveling from Gatwick to Heathrow Airport. We were the only two people on the bus. It would have been strange not to sit together, having both just flown on the same plane from Tel Aviv to London. In Jerusalem, where he lived and I had...
