  • Schools caution on alcohol during Simchat Torah

    By Jared Sichel

    September 24, 2013 | 3:44 pm

    Dozens of men sit around a few tables, humming a soft Chasidic niggun (tune), swaying slowly back and forth, noshing on cold cuts, salads and light snacks. Some are sipping on small cups of vodka. Most wear white dress shirts, black dress pants and a long black coat. 

    This is a...

  • LimmudLA Fest: Less is more

    August 21, 2013 | 1:37 pm

    There are very few places where one could learn about the Jewish prison population, sing Kiddush with a Broadway legend and do tai chi — all in one weekend. 

    All of these topics were among those explored at the first-ever LimmudLA Fest, a retreat full of learning that took place...

  • How to explain LDS religious terms to Jews

    By Mark Paredes

    June 8, 2013 | 8:04 am

    When Jews share their religious beliefs with others, they don’t automatically assume that they are familiar with Judaism, and usually do a beautiful job of expressing their thoughts using secular terms that can be understood by all. However, well-meaning Mormons who discuss their...

  • An interview with Ayelet Shaked

    August 15, 2012 | 11:17 am

    With the run-up to the first-ever internal primaries for the Jewish Home Party (Ha-Bayit Ha-Yehudi) in full steam, one of the most hotly discussed issues is the candidacy of 36-year old Ayelet Shaked.

    The co-founder and former chairman of the MyIsrael (Yisrael Sheli) national...

  • The embrace

    By Rob Eshman

    February 8, 2012 | 3:27 pm

    At the end of Shabbat services last Saturday, I watched a 7-year-old boy recite the blessing over the wine, the Kiddush. His voice was pure, the Hebrew, a learned language for him, flowed fast and flawlessly from his mouth. His face shone.

    I couldn’t take my eyes off the boy,...

  • Late to shul, on time for kiddush

    November 1, 2011 | 12:14 pm

    My friend and I go to the same synagogue but almost never run into each other. “How come?” I was musing the other day.

    “Well,” she said. “I only go there to pray.”

    Aha! That explains it! When she’s walking out, I’m walking in.

    Yes, I’m one of those synagogue...

  • Stumbling through my bat mitzvah

    By Debra Nussbaum Cohen

    January 10, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    My bat mitzvah was an unmitigated disaster.

    I'd hoped the guests would be as taken as I was with my dress, first high heels and the orange and yellow petit fours at the Kiddush.

    But instead, they were left with an altogether different image when I fell while parading the Torah scroll...

  • Pico-Robertson Live in the ‘hood: Little sukkahs, on the hillside, little huts made of ...

    By David Suissa

    You rise from your 300-thread cotton sheets and walk along your Carrera marble floors through the hand-crafted French doors that give out to a spectacular patio overlooking the city. Off to the side is a small, frail- looking structure that looks like an old hut, with palm leaves on...
  • Sukkot: the beauty of fragility

    By Rabbi Daniel Greyber

    October 5, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Nine years ago, my wife and I returned home from lunch in a friend's sukkah on the first day of Sukkot. The phone was ringing as we walked in, and since we'd only just arrived in Los Angeles we didn't have an answering machine set up yet. Since we don't use the phone on Shabbat or...
  • Herring and Haftarah

    By Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin

    February 10, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Single malt Scotch. Schmaltz herring. Cholent. Kugel. Marble sheet cake. What do all these delicacies have in common?

    Yes, they all contribute to heart disease, but there's something more: They are all served at the Kiddush Club. A Kiddush Club is an exclusive group of shulgoers...

  • The New Year’s Sephardic Seder

    By Julie G Fax

    September 13, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    It may not be as long and involved as the Passover seder, but for Raquel Bensimon, the ritualized dinner of Rosh Hashana is just as sweet and just as replete with memories.

    With her husband, son and daughter-in-law, three grandchildren and the extended family of Ashkenazi in-laws and...

  • Jewish Art Makeover

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    A women's tefillin set with a beaded velvet box and blue satin straps.

    A silver "Kiddush" cup in which ceremonial wine passes through a delicately crafted silver net formed from the Hebrew word for "blessed."

    A sukkah with brightly painted walls made of the long, plastic

  • Finding Their Way

    June 5, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Her husband, Christopher, a pianist and composer, agrees.

    "Sometimes, when I play at Jewish weddings, I have to explain to them that the kiddush should come before the motzi, the blessing of the bread."

    Like most converts, the Hardins take the precepts of their adopted faith more...
