  • Growing anger over American drones in Yemen

    May 13, 2013 | 3:16 pm

    "Mrs. Michele Obama: Tell us can your husband sleep after so many innocent people were killed by his drones?" read a banner held by a Yemeni activist at a recent rally to protest increasing American drone strikes in Yemen.

    The rally reflected the growing anti-American feeling...

  • Live in the ‘hood: lingering Shabbat

    I thought I understood the unique power of Shabbat, until I moved to the Pico-Robertson neighborhood a few months ago.

    It's not like I'm a novice on the subject. For several years, in the late '80s and early '90s in Venice Beach, I was part of an eclectic band of yuppie frummies who...

    Bill Boyarsky's piece on public schools neglected to mention both Bob Hertzberg and Dr. Keith Richman's contribution to the movement to transform Los Angeles schools ("Mayor's Plan for Schools Gets 'E' for Effort," Sept. 22) Most importantly, teachers not politicians,...

    On that day, David was having lunch in his study. His...
  • Live in the ‘hood: words of awe

    I love a good sermon. There's nothing like the uplift you get from hearing words that go right to your soul.
     
    Words on a page can't do that for me. In a live sermon, you can almost taste the breath of the rabbi. You can feel the occasional struggle for the perfect word. If the...
  • Live in the hood: ‘last time the shoulder no good’

    If you want to get the full flavor of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood, there's no better season than this time of year. When mainstream Judaism talks about the High Holidays, they usually mean one or two days of Rosh Hashanah, and then the Big Day a week later. In the Hood, they...
