Does edgy Jewish humor translate? The New York-based magazine Heeb is coming to England -- but whether the United Kingdom's rather reserved Jewish population will appreciate the magazine's offbeat urban style remains to be seen.
The magazine's British launch was held recently at a plush theater in north London during a Jewish film festival, organized in association with the Jewish Community Centre for London.
The election analysis is all the same. For days, the political press was almost totally occupied with Sen. John Kerry's choice for the vice presidential candidate. When Sen. John Edwards was selected, everyone I saw or read had the same take: Terrific speaker; inexperienced; shady trial lawyer; fighter for the forgotten.
It was as if the journalists were afraid to stray off the beaten track or leave the reporting pack to have an original thought. Today's political reporting is a compendium of conventional wisdom. The motto of the press corps is: "On one hand.... And on the other...."

It's not every day that an Israeli army chief of staff calls in top journalists to express deep misgivings about government policy.
So when Lt. Gen. Moshe Ya'alon initiated a late October briefing to warn that the government's handling of Palestinian terrorism could provoke more intense Palestinian violence, the country sat up and took notice.
Ya'alon's critique reflected a deep divide between two schools of thought: the hard-liners, like Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, who believe relentless military pressure can force the Palestinians to abandon terrorism for peace negotiations, and relative moderates, like Ya'alon and many of the Israel Defense Force's top generals, who maintain that Palestinian violence will only abate when serious political incentives are put on the table.
hen the editors of Ha'Am, UCLA's Jewish student newsmagazine, scrawled the words, "Ha'Am Is Back," across the back of Kerchoff Hall, they didn't realize the staying power of the statement that they were about to make. What the editors thought was sidewalk chalk, commonly used by students at UCLA as a means of political expression, turned out to be permanent.
"We're still waiting for it to come off," said Miriam Segura, Ha'Am's editor-in-chief.

At my college newspaper, new writers all received the same encouraging spiel. "We want you to start writing for us immediately," the editor would say. "We're not like the Harvard Crimson, where you have to scrub floors all semester before anyone even talks to you."
I sat down to write my regular column today. I had some pithy observations about a wedding I attended over the summer. It had all the makings of a witty little number. And then the World Trade Center blew up and the world is a vastly different place since when I wrote my last column.
It was not always Israel's fault.
Joan Nathan is one of America's premier food journalists, which is what makes "The Foods of Israel Today" so important a book.
The Croatian Tourist Office in conjunction with Lufthansa had generously put together a 12 day guest package, hoping we would like what we saw (after all, parts of Croatia, especially the Dalmatian coast on the Adriatic Sea, are quite beautiful). The thought was we would combine descriptions of the famous tourist sights with a report to our readers on the life and times of Jewish Croatia.
