  • Face It:  Judaism Is Not Hip

    By Gary Wexler

    September 29, 2005 | 8:01 pm

    This Rosh Hashanah I am praying to escape the tyranny of hip. Hip is infiltrating Jewish life like a migrating plume of acrid smoke meandering its way through our collective body and soul.

    I know hip well. I know its insidious nature. I have seen its effect and its damage. I was...

    Diane Arbus, acknowledged as one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, thought photographs were the ultimate enigma.

    February 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    The release from prison of five Iranian Jews last week was due not to a change of heart by the regime in Tehran, but to a political calculation that Iran's international image needs burnishing, observers say. And clouding the relief of the Jews' relatives and advocates is concern...

    March 23, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Consider the lyrics of Cheryl Wheeler's song "Unworthy":

    "I'm unworthy -- and no matter what I'm doing I should certainly be doing something else.

    And it's selfish, to be thinking I'm unworthy. All this me, me, me, me, self, self, self, self, self.

  • Torah Portion

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    July 24, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    You can't miss her. All over town, huge billboards advertise not cigarettes, automobiles or banking services but the image of a scantily clad young woman, with the caption "Angelyne." Her image is a caricature of male fantasies. What was once confined to the back pages of so-called...
