  • Lou Adler: The Midas touch

    By Tom Teicholz

    November 13, 2013 | 12:37 pm

    About a mile north of Duke’s in Malibu, a right turn takes you up to a bluff with its own driveway, which leads to a large parking lot. There, on the day I visited, a tour bus was parked in front of a modest ranch house, alongside several other cars, none of them too fancy. The...

    Camp Hess Kramer in Malibu is quiet in its off-season — or quieter, at least, if you’re used to seeing the space filled to bursting with energetic young campers. In the fall, it’s populated mostly by groups of adults who come through to use the grounds as a conference center, and...

  • What do tattoos say about you?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 30, 2012 | 7:40 pm

    I spent Sunday in Malibu, which is one of my favorite places on earth.  It was sunny and warm with just the right mix of locals and tourists.  It was busy but not overly crowded.  We scoped out our spot and settled in.  It was about 11 am and our fellow beach bums were families with...

    By Ilana Angel

    December 5, 2011 | 9:48 pm

    Dear Lord this week was painful to watch.  By painful of course I mean I wanted to cause myself pain by plucking out my own eyes, which have been more fun than this show.  At what point is Bravo going to stop the crap and start getting real?  Taylor simply does belong not on...

    When I read about the Mom’s Retreat at Camp JCA Shalom in TRIBE’s March Calendar, I thought, “Sign me up!” A weekend—kidfree—with all the fun activities of camp: hiking, swimming, games, arts and crafts ... but even better. The weekend includes activities only a grown-up can truly...

  • Malibu tango on Carbon Beach

    By Susan Freudenheim

    July 24, 2008 | 1:02 am

    It is not a secret that many beachfront homeowners in Malibu have a disproportionate sense of ownership of the surf and turf that fronts their properties. They pay millions for the illusion that they own the beach.

    It's also not a secret that they don't.

    So, the battle between some...

  • Dancing with my dad—and David Dassa

    By Dikla Kadosh

    May 17, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Perhaps only in Israeli folk dancing circles can a 17-year-old high schooler mingle comfortably with a 52-year-old podiatrist. Probably only at Israeli folk dance camps can people dance 20 hours in a 24 hour period. And for Rikud, which offers just that kind of experience, there is a...

    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 Evan Pondel

    August 26, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The recently mounted mezuzah on the front door of a soon-to-be opened restaurant in Malibu is symbolic for many reasons.

    It marks the first kosher eatery to open in the seaside community. It also symbolizes Chabad of Malibu's first foray into mainstream life in a city of surfers and...

  • With Camperships for All

    By David Finnigan

    May 27, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    "It's amazing, in the past few years, the income level of people who...

    July 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    A 7-year-old boy with severe disabilities who usually spends his days in an unresponsive haze in his wheelchair is running his fingers through the mane of a miniature pony named Chocolate -- and giggling.

  • Sephardic Survival

    By Adam Wills

    November 29, 2001 | 6:59 pm

    "Survivor" as inspiration for Jewish programming?

    It seems strange that the divisive show where deceit, backstabbing and empty promises are de rigueur would serve as the inspiration for a Shabbaton that stresses the importance of religious and cultural continuity. Yet Sephardic...
