    January 16, 2013 | 8:31 am

    In decline since the peace it sought with the Palestinians unraveled into violence, Israel's Labor Party looks set to regain some lost ground in next week's election after waging an economy-focused campaign.

  • Opinion: How the contemporary left can reclaim its moral authority

    August 21, 2012 | 11:24 am

    After the 1967 Six-Day War, much of the radical left in the West predicated its militant anti-Zionism on the illusory notion that the Palestinians represented a revolutionary and “progressive” vanguard that could one day mobilize the Arab masses in the cause of social revolution....

  • Wild Wild Left Coast

    By Jonathan Kirsch

    July 1, 2011 | 12:47 pm

  • Was Judaism a color on Rothko’s palette?

    By Tom L. Freudenheim

    November 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Like many people of my generation, I first grooved on Mark Rothko's paintings at Washington, D.C.'s Phillips Collection in the 1960s. The museum's founder, Duncan Phillips, an early Rothko patron, had assembled four sublime paintings in a small room (approximately 13-by-24 feet) --...
  • Letters to the Editor

    August 17, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The Left

    Gary Wexler ("Left-Leaning Jewish Groups Out-of-Touch Now," Aug. 4) ought not to be surprised by the wrath of his former compatriots in last week's Letters to the Editor. It is the standard fury against an apostate.

    August 18, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    For years, American Jews, including liberals, have watched in astonishment as Europe's left-wing media, academic and political elites have turned decisively against Israel and, to some extent, Jews, as well.

    When it comes to politics in Israel, left and right rarely agree. In a country where even sports teams are aligned with political parties, there is

    one issue that should unite Israelis and their American supporters from across the political spectrum: the need to foster opportunity...

  • Do We Have Anything Left to Give?

    By David Suissa

    Do the Jews have anything left to give to America?

    This question was on my mind recently, after I was on a panel at Brandeis-Bardin Institute to discuss the Jewish influence on American culture. The popular view on this subject is invariably, "Just look at all the Jews who run...

    After 10 extremely passionate months together, Amanda decided to end our relationship. She thought it through very carefully and took the steps she felt were necessary to break things off. There was just one small step she overlooked -- telling me.

  • What You Leave Behind

    By Abby Gilad

    November 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Can you think of someone who used to live in your neighborhood or went to your school but moved away? How did you feel when they moved? Was the person who left someone who did nice things for people? Was he or she helpful?
