  • Letters to the editor: Tikkun olam in North Africa, violence against women and global warming

    April 17, 2014 | 12:23 pm

    Supply and Demand

    David Suissa indicates that tikkun olam didn’t exist in places like North Africa (“Jews Helping Non-Jews,” March 28). But he fails to mention that its absence was due to lack of necessity, not a tribal instinct to “put one’s own first.” He bemoans the supposed...

    Bill Maher: It’s Complicated

    Bill Maher infuriates me, but I want to have a beer with him. I don’t even want to change his mind. We all have people in our lives who we love that make us crazy. There is even a name for them: Family. 

    OK Bill, what will you have? I’m buying.

  • Global warming revisited

    By Dennis Prager

    April 2, 2014 | 12:02 pm

    In 2011, I wrote about global warming in this column (Part 1 / Part 2). With the just-released Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, it is worth revisiting the topic. I said then that there were scientifically legitimate reasons to be skeptical about the global...

    The Dark Before the Dawn

    Rob Eshman’s piece in this week’s Journal brought to mind a couple of analogies (“The Bright Side,” Feb. 28). The first that occurred to me is all the things I could accomplish if only I had the winning ticket in one of those humongous lotteries. The...

  • Best place to avoid a zombie apocalypse?

    By Ryan E. Smith

    July 2, 2013 | 11:36 am

    Max Brooks, son of the comedian behind “Blazing Saddles” and “The Producers,” is convinced that Jews are uniquely positioned to face a zombie apocalypse. And he’s not joking.

    “Gentiles don’t understand how truly dangerous the world is. Jews do. It’s part of our national culture,”...

  • The day the Earth stood stupid

    By Marty Kaplan

    May 13, 2013 | 9:28 am

    Say goodnight, Earthlings.

    That message — plus the slimmest of shots at an eleventh-hour reprieve — was announced to the people of the world last week. 

    When this happens in science fiction — 1951’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still” is the classic — the planet pays attention. ...

  • Election 2012: What no president can do

    By David Suissa

    November 7, 2012 | 4:48 pm

    As I write this, I still don’t know who’s won the presidency. But by the time you read this, barring an Electoral College tie, you certainly will know.

    Which means that while I’m still in suspense, you’re probably reading articles like “What Four More Years of Obama Means” or...

  • Cooking Our Children

    By Rav Yosef Kanefsky

    August 7, 2012 | 12:08 am

    The Book of Eicha (Lamentations) offers many grim images as it recounts the destruction of Jerusalem, and the slaughter and exiling of its population.  Surely one of the most gruesome is that of parents so racked with hunger that they resort to cooking their own children.  It’s an...

    Job Search Process Is Ineffective, Demeaning

    Even though organizations like JVS have WorkSource centers on Wilshire Boulevard and in Marina del Rey, the jobs through JVS are all online (“Still Unemployed: Out of Luck but Not Out of Hope,” Nov. 25). The process of finding jobs...

    Chilly Responses to Prager’s Global Warming Comments

    To agree with Dennis Prager that global warming “is a left-wing hysteria” requires ignoring more than 150 years of science (“Man-Made Global Warming: Why Many of Us Are Skeptical, Part 1 and Part 2,” Oct. 28 and Nov....

  • Opinion: Global warming: Part 2

    By Dennis Prager

    November 9, 2011 | 4:56 pm

    This is how I began Part 1 of this column, two weeks ago:

    By Elyse Glickman

    October 10, 2008 | 4:21 pm

    Wedding invitations have traditionally gone beyond telling friends and family about the whens and wheres of a couple's big day. Through use of color, typefaces and embellishments, they made a statement about a couple's personality and tastes.

    As the environment and economy play...

  • The Dead Sea is dying and it's a 'man-made disaster' [VIDEO]

    August 3, 2008 | 7:34 pm

    EIN GEDI, Israel (JTA)—The beach at the Ein Gedi Spa at the Dead Sea would seem like an ideal place for a little R&R amid the frenzy of modern Israel.

    Set in the quiet of the desert, it has stunning views of Jordan’s mountains and its therapeutic waters reputedly do wonders for...

  • Red-Dead canal idea stirs controversy

    By Dina Kraft

    August 3, 2008 | 6:46 pm

    HERZLIYA, Israel (JTA) – On aerial photographs, the shrinking Dead Sea juts into the surrounding desert landscape like a blue index finger.

    As part of the effort to prevent this finger from becoming a mere smudge on the map by 2050, the World Bank is conducting a $14 million...

  • OPINION: Save the Dead Sea by restoring the Jordan River, not by building a canal to the Red Sea

    August 3, 2008 | 6:24 pm

    TEL AVIV (JTA)—Environmentalists in Israel and the Middle East have a clear vision on how to save the Dead Sea, which has been losing 850 million cubic meters per year thanks to water diversion upstream and mineral extraction at the sea.

    This vision sees fresh water flowing again...

  • Let kids rule the land

    By Shoshana Lewin-Fischer

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Kids get a bum rap. They can't vote, they can't drive, they can't call up and order things off the TV without a parent's permission and they have no say in the way their schools are run. But all is not lost. They can influence how their families handle the growing global warming...
  • End hypocrisy now

    By Rob Eshman

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Quick, name one thing that 99 percent of all American Jews agree on. Impossible, right? We are the People who pride ourselves on our contentiousness, who revel in our stiff-neckedness, who love to remind the world that where there are two Jews, you'll find three opinions.

    But it's...

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    On a ferociously cold evening in November 1978, Rabbi Everett Gendler climbed atop the icy roof of Temple Emanuel in Lowell, Mass., and installed solar panels to fuel the synagogue's ner tamid (eternal light).

    "We plugged it almost directly into the sun," said Gendler, who rejoiced...

  • Converting to Green: How many skeptics does it take to screw in a CFL light bulb?

    By Howard Gordon

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    All right, I admit it. When it came to believing that I could make a difference in the fight to stop global warming, I was a skeptic. Sure, I drove a Prius, and I dutifully deposited my Fiji bottles in the nearest blue recycling bin. But the truth is, I mostly did these things to...
