    In 1998, the International Commission on Holocaust-Era Insurance...

  • The Reason We Should Talk

    By Nazir Khaja

    October 25, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Though a terrorist attack may demolish tall buildings, it will never succeed in leveling the spirits or the values that America represents.

    This country will most certainly keep moving forward. Justice will prevail and healing will take place. Americans -- black, white, Chicanos,...

  • Justice at War

    By Douglas Mirell

    September 20, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Sept. 11, 2001.

    It has already become a cliché to say that this is the 21st century's "date which will live in infamy." Yet, as analogies to the attack upon Pearl Harbor continue unabated, precious little attention has been devoted to the aftermath of that and other national horrors...

  • Here Come the Judges

    By Mike Levy

    August 23, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Gov. Gray Davis announced four possible nominees for California's Supreme Court, to fill the vacancy left by the late Justice Stanley Mosk in June.

    On any given Sunday, there are more community-bonding events going on than you can shake a lulav at. Take June 10, when The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) buzzed with activity.

  • Why is this election different from all other elections?

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    November 2, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Campaign 2000's white noise of candidates, pundits and paid advertisements has all but drowned out one important set of facts: What's really at stake in this election?

  • Higher Ground

    By Melissa Minkin

    For 25 years, the National...

    One could almost see historyon the march in Washington last week when the House Banking Committeeheld a day of hearings on Nazi plunder -- stolen artworks in themorning, looted insurance policies after lunch -- and how to restoreit to its rightful owners.
