    Eti Sharabi walked through the glass doors and marveled at the shining hardwood floors and the walls splashed with green and orange, making this space feel more like a sleek advertising or architectural firm than...

  • Online social scene clicks with younger set

    By Sharon Duke Estroff

    January 18, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    OK, admit it. You've breathed a guilty sigh of relief that your kids are still too young to have been bitten by the MySpace bug. You've relished the reprieve (if only temporary) from the mounting worries of parents of virtual-social-networking-obsessed middle and high schoolers.

    But...

  • To comfort me, first comfort yourself

    By Rabbi Anne Brener

    November 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    People have been generous. During the past two decades I have assisted in creating caring communities that extend themselves to people in their midst at profound turning points. These times of need include both times of tragedy and times of great joy. Baby namings, weddings,...

    By Julie Brown

    February 23, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    As if getting myself into college hadn't been difficult enough, now I'm embarking on the adventure of navigating my son through the process. I call it an "adventure," because it truly is nothing less -- a roller-coaster ride fraught with sudden turns, unexpected pitfalls,...

    This past September, the Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Los Angeles, the Zimmer Children's Museum and representatives of more than 70 other organizations attended a seminar for nonprofits that I conducted at The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.

  • After the Miscarriage

    By Andrea Lesch Weiss

    November 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    When my doctor informed me, in the seventh week of my first pregnancy, that I had miscarried, he accompanied the news with what he surely thought was a comforting idea.

    He told me that God wanted perfect children, and this was His way of making it happen.

    It was the first of several...

    November 18, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    We are in kickoff month for the '05 divorced model year.

    Yes, all those splits during this year are now on the

    market, in search of (pause for the sigh) soul mates.

    This is the perfect time to look into the latest and greatest, and many new faces will appear on the Internet. Don't...

  • Monk Could Be Way to Mideast Peace

    By Larry Kasanoff

    August 5, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Next week, I am sponsoring a group of Israelis and Palestinians to spend a few weeks in a small village in southern France with a Buddhist monk named Thich Nhat Hanh. These two disparate groups of people do not know each other, but often feel hatred toward each other. Some of them...

    In 1832, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the United States government could not force the Native American Cherokee tribe out of its Georgia homes and into reservations in Oklahoma. President Andrew Jackson, appalled by the court's interference in a jurisdiction he considered...

  • Beth Sholom’s New Siddur

    By Journal Staff

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    For some, synagogue choreography is as mystifying as opera. To enjoy an opera, though, aficionados know to review the scenes in a libretto before the curtain rises. Yet the typical siddur prayerbook provides no such guidance. "The prayerbook, rather than help them, becomes an...

  • Why Are We in Kosovo?

    April 1, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    I always thought that historical perspective helped sharpen the mind by illuminating the choices that loomed ahead. But when I look at the awful state of affairs in Kosovo, I am not so certain that history offers much guidance. Maybe, though, if we try to look at the past freshly and...
