    By Rob Eshman

    August 22, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The big wheels of the American PR industry are finally spinning on behalf of Israel.

  • The Great Falafel Question

    By Jodi Kantor

    July 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The last time you bit into a falafel sandwich you were probably thinking about nothing more than the warm spice and crunch of the chickpea fritters and the way they played against the soft bread, crisp vegetables and nutty tahini sauce.

    Unless you're Palestinian, in which case you...

  • Bill Would Segregate Israelis

    By Eric Silver

    July 11, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    If Israel's friends and diplomats have a harder time this week convincing the world that Israel is not a racist state, they have only their own government to blame. Seventeen rightist and religious party ministers voted last Sunday to endorse a privately sponsored bill to build...

  • A Code of Civility in Jewish Public Discourse

    By David N. Myers

    June 6, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    One of the most distressing aspects of the recent Middle East conflagration has been the retreat of both sides -- Israelis and Palestinians, as well as their supporters -- behind towering rhetorical walls.

    This retreat evokes the verbal wars of the 1970s, when Israel meant racist...

  • This Land Is Our Land

    By Rabbi Mimi Weisel

    June 6, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    You cannot remove other people's anxieties, but sometimes you can help them to understand their feelings of unease and find ways to cope with them.

    In my work with rabbinical students, I have faced the challenge in recent weeks of helping one particular group to sort out its fears...

  • Caped Crusaders

    By Ruth Andrew Ellenson

    May 16, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The $114 million opening weekend for the release of "Spider-Man" on May 3 was not only a box office record breaker but a resounding triumph for two wily Israeli entrepreneurs.

    In his new book, "Comic Wars," journalist Dan Raviv details the dramatic battle of Revlon CEO Ronald...

  • Arafat’s Choice

    By Rep. Henry Waxman

    April 4, 2002 | 7:00 pm

  • War or Pieces

    By Rob Eshman

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Israelis voted Ehud Barak into office as prime minister because he promised to bring them peace. He failed, in large part because his negotiating partner Yasser Arafat was unwilling to make the difficult choices peace demands. Israelis then voted Ariel Sharon into the prime...

  • War is in the Air

    By David Landau

    August 30, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    As Israeli opposition leader Yossi Sarid noted this week, the slide into war often happens despite the fact that no one intends or wishes it.

    As the Al-Aksa Intifada entered its 12th month this week with a new and ominous surge in the level of violence, Israelis are beginning to...

  • Mea Culpas

    By Amy Klein

    August 23, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Even for a journalist who tries to keep an open mind, it's hard to watch the world media equate the conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis as a level playing field, tit for tat. They bomb, we retaliate; a war between equals, or worse, a war between unequals with Israel as the...

  • Sen. McCain to Help Find Kidnapped Israelis

    By Sharon Samber

    August 9, 2001 | 8:00 pm

  • Israelis Frustrated With Restraint

    By Amotz Asa-El

    July 12, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Considering that air, water and fire are essential elements not just of life but of war, Israelis this week could hardly feel more besieged.

    Monday morning, takeoffs and traffic at Ben-Gurion Airport were severely disrupted following a bomb scare. In the evening, greater Tel Aviv's...

  • Heeding a Tenuous Cease-Fire

    By Eric Silver

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The suicide bombing last Friday night that killed 20 young Israelis outside a beach-front disco in Tel Aviv trans-formed Israel's international image from bully boy to victim. The Palestinians reverted overnight to their old role as the bad guys.

    German Foreign Minister Joschka...

  • Red Sea Holiday

    By Michal Strutin

    May 17, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Nobody takes Eilat too seriously -- which is a good thing. Poised on the cusp of the Red Sea, this resort city at the southern tip of Israel is where Israelis and others go to unwind. During the short, cold days of winter, northern Europeans by the planeload come to soak up the...

  • Changes in Attitude

    By Eric Silver

    April 5, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    There were more police than customers in Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda market last Friday morning, when Jewish families would normally stock up for the weekend. Downtown, the strolling, shopping and coffee-bar crowds had deserted the Ben-Yehuda pedestrian mall for the fashionable German...

  • Taking off the Gloves

    By David Landau

    April 5, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Six months into the Palestinian uprising, Israeli doves and hawks are displaying a rare unity in the face of repeated Palestinian onslaughts.

    Palestinian attacks in recent days on two settlement enclaves left two Israeli babies among the victims -- one, a 10-month-old girl, dead; the...

  • The Home Front

    By Larry Derfner

    March 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Standing with the crowd in Netanya where, hours before, a Palestinian suicide bomber had killed three Israelis and himself, local carpenter Ya'acov Ohayon was asked if he thought the public -- the home front -- was ready for more of the same, or worse.

    "Are they ready?" he replied....

  • Pushing the Limits

    By Gil Sedan

    October 5, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    In less than a week, whatever was left of the mutual trust between Israelis and Palestinians appeared to come tumbling down.

    Except for the loss of life, this loss of trust is among the greatest casualties of the past week of bloody rioting.

    And when a Palestinian police officer opened...

  • A Nanny’s Story

    By Charlotte Hildebrand

    August 31, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    There are a thousand stories in the naked city of Los Angeles, but when it comes to nannies, there are at least a million - nannies who have a free reign of the household, nannies who make good salaries, nannies who get help from their employers to buy cars or put a down payment on a...

    These are threeexperiences that have made me most hate being Jewish:
