    When Ikar, a 3-year-old congregation in Los Angeles, wants to make an announcement to the 1,500 people on its mailing list, it doesn't send a letter. It sends an e-mail.

    By Max Gottlieb

    June 15, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    It's a tough thing trying to arrange a Shabbat dinner at the Cannes Film Festival.

    My friend, Scott Einbinder, had gotten the idea two years ago, during my first trip to the festival. At first, I was hesitant. I was focused on business, a filmmaker obsessed with my career. Plus, I...
