    November 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    In a significant move by the U.S. government, FBI agents have seized a Picasso painting claimed as Nazi-looted art by a descendant of the original German Jewish owners.

    Agents from the Los Angeles bureau confiscated the painting, valued at $10 million, at the Chicago home of the...

    September 9, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Aviel Atash was the entire world for his mother, Rachel. A developmentally delayed woman who married at the age of 39, Rachel never thought she would have children, and Aviel was like a dream, said her brother, Los Angeles resident Yoram Partush.

    Avital Etash stares out from the front pages of Israel's newspapers, a 4-year-old boy in a striped shirt and dark blue kippah, his dark eyes wide and curious.

    Etash was the youngest of 16 people killed in Tuesday's double suicide bombing in Beersheba. His mother lies in the...

    By Dan Baron

    May 13, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It was a loss that brought back the darkest days of Israel's war on Palestinian terrorism and the Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon -- and the next day it got even worse.

    Six elite soldiers of the Givati Brigade, on their way home from a mission to destroy arms factories in...

  • Pro-Life, Pro Choice, Pro-Healing

    By Lamelle Ryman

    April 22, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I was a teenage pro-choice fanatic.

    My car's license plate read CHOICE 8. Apparently, I shared my enthusiasm with at least seven other people in Illinois. But life's wisdom comes slowly. Once, when a neighbor three times my age told me she agreed that abortion should be legal, I...

    November 20, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Years ago, one of my colleagues had the awesome task of officiating at the funeral of a 9-year-old girl killed by a car while riding her bicycle. My friend gathered the children from that small Jewish community and gently invited them to speak their true feelings.

    "I'm mad at my mom...

    "The Blessing of a Broken Heart" by Sherri Mandell (Toby Press, 2003).

    When a crime takes place in my neighborhood, I play a mental trick. Of course that (naive) person was mugged. She was walking alone after dark. Naturally that (careless) family was burglarized -- they left their...

    May 29, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    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.

    So here's how I found out: Coming...

  • U.S. Spending Ignores Domestic Deficits

    By Leonard Fein

    May 15, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Write the word "fiscal" and know that a hefty proportion of your readers will find something else to read. So, let's talk about money instead.

    Specifically, about the money the states don't have.

    The only thing you need to know by way of background is that almost all states are...

  • A Just War May Be Great Risk to Israel

    By Rabbi Joel Rembaum

    March 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    There are very few people I know who have an unambiguous perspective on this war. I think we are quite unanimous in our belief that Saddam Hussein is a bad guy who should go -- for the sake of his own people and all the people in the Middle East.

    As a stand-alone goal, the removal...

    Neil Simon has always laced his plays with aspects of his own life and, at age 75, he takes on mortality -- specifically the mortality of a creative writer -- in "Rose and Walsh."

    In the world premiere of his 33rd play, now at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, Simon examines death,...

  • Ramon Memorialized Across America

    By Rachel Pomerance

    February 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    The groundswell of emotion in response to Ilan Ramon's death has not only been a great inspiration for American Jews, it also has helped strengthen the bond Americans feel for Israel.

    "It's a state of mourning for the whole nation. Our school is no different," said Joseph "J.P."...

    A Hero

    As The Journal went to press last week, word came that terrorist kidnappers in Pakistan had brutally murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

    The news broke upon us with a special sting. Even as I write this, almost a week later, the sadness is acute,...

  • Learning From Loss

    By Diane Arieff

    September 23, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    When painful loss occurs in our lives, we want to make some sense of it: Why did she get so sick? Why did I lose my livelihood? Why can't we conceive a child? Why did he die? In his new book, "Making Loss Matter: Creating Meaning in Difficult Times" (Riverhead Books, $23.95), David...
  • God Times

    June 3, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    We buried her 13 months ago -- this flower, this light, this precious partner of his for 60 years. Everything was done in our ancient way: the funeral with its torn, black ribbons and clods of earth thunking on plain pine; the shiva, with its prayers, grief and Bundt cakes; a year of...

  • A Woman’s Voice

    May 15, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    A few weeks ago, I saw my husband walking across the street, near the dry cleaners. He was wearing khakis, a beige shirt and the brown belt I bought him for his 48th birthday, the one with the gold buckle. I couldn't see the buckle, because I only saw him from behind. But I knew that...
