  • Back to the Desert

    By Shelly Malmon

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Modern Jews must possess an ancient collective memory to stay out of the desert. I only had enough vacation days saved up for the Memorial Day weekend, not enough for 40 years of wandering.

    But Arie Katz, founder of Orange County's Community Scholar Program, which sponsored this...

    By Julie G Fax

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    By Gaby Wenig

    February 26, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    While the Los Angeles community has it share of rabbis and teachers who can teach a great class or two, there is always an allure of having someone come in from overseas as a special guest speaker. But now, airplanes are no longer necessary to get an overseas speaker to talk in Los...

  • Finding a Role for Woznica

    By Marc Ballon

    June 5, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    David Woznica was anything but a model Hebrew school student. At Congregation Adat Ari El in North Hollywood, his exasperated teachers often made him sit alone on "the bench" as punishment for interrupting them with jokes and whispers.

    Fast forward 35 years. On a recent Friday night,...

    By Gary Rosenblatt

    August 15, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    While the military conflict between Israel and the Palestinians continues, there is one war the Jewish state appears to have lost -- without even a struggle.

    That is its claim to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and the Jewish people's connection to the First and Second Temples as the...

  • Community Scholar

    By Andrea Adelson

    January 17, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Driven by a personal desire for intellectual growth, Arie Katz set out last year to attract to Orange County the sort of eminent Jewish scholars that few synagogues can afford to woo on their own.

  • Arnold, ‘Moses und Aron’

    By Tom Tugend

    December 6, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Los Angeles largely ignored Arnold Schoenberg, arguably the most influential and controversial composer of the 20th century, when he labored at USC and UCLA during the last 17 years of his life.
