    By now you’ve probably all heard that 51 year old actor Doug Hutchison has married a 16 year old girl named Courtney Stodden.  I thought he was a great actor because he plays creepy so well.  From Lost to The Green Mile, his characters have been disturbing.  Turns out maybe he’s...

  • Let’s stay together

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    March 6, 2008 | 11:07 am

    Why can’t people seem to stay together? We invest time in their relationships. Applaud their triumphs as couples and mourn when things don’t go well. So why is it that everyone is breaking up?

    I blame the networks.

    I Ate the Whole Thing!

    Rap music and matzah balls? Hey, Jews can rap. Just ask the group, Chutzpah, which showed up in full rapping gear for the weighing of the 26-pound-matzah ball at Canter's Deli last week to celebrate the DVD release of "When Do We Eat?" The weights and measures...

  • John Paul II and the Jews

    By Rabbi Marvin Hier

    April 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm



    For 20 centuries, the Catholic Church has had a turbulent relationship with the Jewish people. Jews were persecuted and held responsible for the death of Jesus, and were often the victims of church-instigated pogroms and anti-Semitic attacks.

    With the passing of Pope John...

    For thousands of young Israelis, the sun-drenched archipelagos of Southeast Asia were the perfect destination to forget the rigors of military service.

    My mother sounded upset when she called the other day. "What's wrong, Ma?" I asked. "I don't know what's going on or where I am she said. "Who are these people with me?"

    I reminded Mom of her move to Los Angeles three years ago, and her life at a San Fernando Valley board and care....

  • Iraq Situation: It’s Vietnam Deja Vu

    By Gordon Livingston

    April 29, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Determination is a virtue. Remember how determined we were in Vietnam?

    No bunch of barefoot peasants was going to force the United States of America to cut and run. No sir. Through eight long years and 58,000 dead soldiers we demonstrated our refusal to be cowed.

    We were in...

    March 18, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I can't explain it any better than this. I think I've lost my mojo. That phrase has been going through my head for months now. Lost my mojo.

    How do you know you've lost your mojo? You get a couple clues.

    I'm eating dinner alone at a restaurant when an attractive older man...

  • The Cost of Latinization

    By Joel Kotkin

    October 2, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    For the most part, Jewish leadership in Los Angeles and elsewhere can be expected to oppose the recall of longtime "ally" Gov. Gray Davis and, in a pinch, support his Mini-Me proposed replacement, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante (see page 12). "Go along to get along" expediency and...

  • Bittersweet Music

    By George Robinson

    March 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Despite its air of celebration, Passover is a bittersweet remembrance, one in which the joy of liberation is marked by the pain of recollection of what we were liberated from and what we lost on the way from Egypt to Eretz Yisrael. Our seder liturgy reflects that ambivalence,...

    July 29, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Ever since I moved to Los Angeles, I've been completely lost.

    No, I don't mean spiritually or emotionally. I mean literally. I've been lost for pretty much two straight years.

    What is the Thomas Guide to me but the Book of Babel? I have a hard enough time just knowing where I am in...
