    By Milikh Yevdayev

    August 5, 2015 | 5:45 pm

    It is after dinner on Shabbat. We are all sitting around the table. The Bozbash (lamb soup) that my wife has made this week was particularly delicious, and everyone at dinner had asked for a second helping, not thinking to save room for what was to come. Immediately following the...

    It's Friday night, and as I wander toward the entrance of Temple Emanuel, a Reform synagogue in Beverly Hills, an usher approaches and asks brightly, "Are you with the choir?"

    I'm African American, but I'm not with the choir, at least not with the choir of Temple Bryant A.M.E....

    By Loolwa Khazzoom

    January 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Like many hothead progressives around the world, I preach antiracism, teach multiculturalism and recognize the United States to be a politically and culturally imperialistic society.
