    (OPERA)

    The rabbinical prohibition of kol isha -- a woman's voice -- precludes women from singing in front of men. Lucky for Michael Kleitman, a talented lyric tenor, this law does not prevent men from entertaining the opposite sex with their vocal skills. Born in...

    Joyce Brooks Bogartz's look isn't quite what you'd expect from the owner of a kosher restaurant. Adorned with brown and cream dreadlocks, the nearly 50-year-old proprietor of Malibu Beach Grill would at first glance seem to fit in better with customers sporting board shorts than...

    By Rob Eshman

    April 20, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    We'll march for Israel, we'll march for Darfur and we'll even march for the whales, but for the people who harvest our food and clean our toilets and watch our children -- for them we can't be bothered.

    Generally speaking, Ventura County is a lovely place. It has beautiful weather, decent air quality, low crime and renowned surfing spots.

    "Where do you want to meet?" I ask my blind date on the phone for our last-minute get-together. I find it's best to set up these things in haste, on the fly, soon after a phone call, so expectations are kept to the barest minimum. (And yet, somehow, no matter how low hopes seem to...

    By Teresa Strasser

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    A relationship with a new city is like a relationship with a new guy. At first, you compare a lot -- my ex had better nicknames for me; he made the bed in the morning. My ex was the one for me, and now I'm just marking time before becoming that old lady in line at the bagel shop who...

    By Rob Eshman

    May 13, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It continues to baffle me why anybody who cares about the future of Jewish communal life in Los Angeles would seriously contemplate closing the Valley Cities Jewish Community Center (JCC).
