    Temple Adat Elohim (TAE) has named Southern California native Rabbi Barry Diamond as its interim rabbi. He replaces Rabbi Ted Riter, who ended his 16-year tenure at TAE in May.

    Diamond, who grew up in Huntington Beach and Newport Beach, has served in...

  • Dead Lady’s Apartment

    By Elliot Steingart

    March 8, 2013 | 3:59 pm

    I am moving down the hall into the apartment of a 91 year old woman who recently passed away. I am sad she died, but it was for a good cause. 

    My landlord told me she lived in the unit for 30 years.

    "She had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital,” my landlord told me.

    Israeli President Shimon Peres will move out of his official residence in Jerusalem following flooding and infrastructure failure throughout the complex.

    Peres will move to an apartment in Jerusalem’s tony Mamilla neighborhood during the renovations, which are estimated to cost...

  • Breaking All the Rules

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 26, 2011 | 1:50 pm

    Today, I’ve given my blog entry over to a very special guest, my sister Jenna Kagel.  I thought you might enjoy hearing from someone completely out of the scene and in a happy relationship for a change.


    I remember being in college and hearing a story of a family friend who had...

  • It’s a Wonderful Life… in Florida…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 22, 2011 | 12:23 pm

    In the last six years, I along with my husband and kids have lived in many different cities.  In part its due to my husband’s profession; having been in the entertainment field for over 20 years, its just a way of life.  Moving away from Orange County a few years ago was the hardest...

  • The Diaspora may be moving, but it isn’t going away any time soon

    By Joel Kotkin

    November 10, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    When Howard Grossman moved to the northeastern Pennsylvania town of Wilkes-Barre 35 years ago, it was a thriving industrial city with a substantial, long-established Jewish community. Today, anyone who visits Wilkes-Barre cannot help but come away with the impression that this town...
  • Jewish Mom for the Straight Guy

    By Andrew Wallenstein

    December 11, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    When my father informed me he had scheduled a business trip to Los Angeles and was taking my mother with him about a month after I moved out here, his timing seemed less than coincidental. Both of my parents had been anxiously phoning me on a daily basis since I left New York. The...

  • Westward Ho

    By Andrew Wallenstein

    November 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    When I accepted a job to transfer from New York City to Los Angeles, I figured October would be the ideal month to move. Just as bone-chilling winds began sweeping the East Coast, I'd be basking in year-round sunshine on the other side of the country.

    But the timing couldn't have...

  • Good Timing Lands Luck in Director’s Lap

    By George Robinson

    September 18, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    I'm sure that when Greg Pritikin made his first feature film, "Dummy," now in theaters, he had no inkling that he had inadvertently grabbed an indie-film brass ring. But when he cast Adrien Brody as a maladroit but sweet schlemiel who is obsessed with ventriloquism as the way to win...

  • Letting Go

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    We leave well before dawn and as we speed through darkness I keep asking myself how it is that I'm now the parent of a college student -- I can still remember vividly the details of my own freshman year almost 30 years ago.

    Arriving at the college, we locate the information booth,...

  • Calling It Like It Is

    By Rabbi Daniel Gordis

    February 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Not long ago, we were invited to friends for Shabbat lunch. They'd recently moved into a new apartment, in more or less the same neighborhood, and over the course of conversation, someone asked them how they liked the new location. Our hostess, a refined and relatively private...

  • Moving Mom

    By Ellie Kahn

    February 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    When I last wrote this column for The Jewish Journal several months ago, I had no idea that my mother would soon be living a short bike ride away. Or that her relocation to Los Angeles would take over my life. But transitions, while challenging and stressful, thankfully don't usually...

  • East Ventura Bound

    By Charlotte Hildebrand

    November 16, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    If you're looking to move into a new home in Los Angeles, good luck. Last month, the median sale price for an L.A. home jumped 10 percent to $213,000, setting an all-time record for L.A. County.

    But if you're looking to move into a new home in Oak Park, say your prayers. Finding a...

  • Moving On Up, Reluctantly

    By Teresa Strasser

    February 17, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    For the last two years, I've dreamed of a simple thing: I've just wanted to be able to say, "I'm in the other room."

    After a lengthy stay in a grim studio apartment, I can finally say that. I've moved to a one-bedroom place in a far better neighborhood, complete with a garden...

  • Sticker Shock

    By Judy Gruen

    May 20, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    After months of debate and deliberation, my husband and I decided to trade in the ocean breeze and proximity to the brand-new Starbucks on Lincoln Boulevard for the clogged air and congested streets of Pico-Robertson. I had toyed with the idea earlier, and had even lookie-looed my...
