    April 10, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    "Are you sleeping?" the 1 a.m. caller asked. "She has been found! You can be happy."

    Sadly, for Dania and Dror Rishpy, the call, built on a baseless report from a bad source, brought but another fleeting flicker of hope.

    It has been a year since Dana Rishpy, an Israeli girl last seen...

    March 7, 2008 | 5:00 pm

    If you're heading down Mexico way, all the way down to Oaxaca, you should know about a bed and breakfast there called Casa Machaya. The name is a sly Jewish reference, a wink at potential clients for the B & B: That's right, it's not meant to be the Spanish "ch," as in "change," but...

  • Baja community begins where the land ends

    By Adam Wills

    October 5, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Waves rush over a pebbled beach as the tensions of city life melt away. The Mexican sun hangs languidly overhead, bleaching colorful kayaks stacked along the shoreline. Hovering far off in the deep blue skies, parasailors are dwarfed by the arriving Carnival cruise ship that will...
  • Su temple es mi casa

    By Anita K. Kantrowitz

    September 21, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    It's 103 degrees in Hollywood, and I'm schvitzing. As I head up the stairs at my synagogue, Tony Guerrero and I exchange greetings.
     
    As usual, he's looking sharp: pressed slacks, a clean white button-down shirt, and today -- a tie and a kippah. "Tony," I ask incredulously, "how...

    On a recent trip to Manhattan, I traveled to the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, which I'd heard about from friends in Los Angeles.

    In Veracruz, Mexico, there lived a group of people who for generations had avoided eating pork and lit candles on Friday night without knowing why. In the early 1980s, some members of the group discovered their Jewish roots and converted to Judaism, and now, 20 years later, are...
