    Everyone's a Critic

    The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) closed out its four-part Ralph Tornberg Lecture Series at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel in West Hollywood with a crackling discussion on an evergreen topic: to what extent, as Marty Kaplan put it, "entertainment and its values have...

    By Tom Tugend

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Buford O. Furrow Jr. was sentenced Monday to life in federal prison in an intensely emotional court hearing, during which relatives of a slain postal worker and of five persons wounded in a shooting spree at a Jewish center angrily confronted the self-avowed white supremacist.


  • Meet Me in St. Louis

    My First Impression

    From the start, I liked the sound of it. Six hundred Jewish professionals my age, flying in from places such as Los Angeles, Cleveland, and my own town, Detroit, for a Jewish-themed weekend at the posh St. Louis Ritz-Carlton.

    I was drawn to the United Jewish...

  • After Furrow

    By Rob Eshman

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Buford O. Furrow Jr.'s turn in the spotlight ended this week with a whimper, not a bang.

    The man who murdered Joseph Ileto because he was Asian and who shot and wounded children and staffers at the North Valley Jewish Community Center because they were Jewish received five life...

  • Being Richard Feynman

    By Tom Tugend

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    I've always felt that what viewers bring to a play or movie by way of personal background and experience determines their level of enjoyment (or dislike) as much as the skills of the actors and author.

    Having spent some 30 years as a science writer at UCLA, during which I must have...

  • Roseanne Pitches Kabbalah Centre

    By Mike Levy

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Despite its location on Robertson Boulevard near Pico, the Kabbalah Centre is miles away from any traditional concept of Judaism. That hardly mattered to the 150 or so young, hip Angelenos who crowded into the center March 21. Eager to learn more about this blend of self-help...

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Ask wine distributor Ira Norof if he carries kosher wines, and he'll automatically correct you: "I carry fine wines that happen to be kosher." The wines are good enough, adds Dennis Bookbinder, director of Western division sales for Royal Wine Corp., that "we don't use the 'K' or...

  • Mideast Forecast

    By Tom Tugend

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Iraq and the United States will face off again within two years, while a likely confrontation between Israel and Syria is also on the horizon.

    The dour predictions were delivered last week at a small private luncheon by Kenneth R. Timmerman, an investigative reporter who has made the...

  • Local ArtscrollContributors

    By Judy Gruen

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    A growing number of Angelenos have either authored or sponsored Mesorah Artscroll texts.

    Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, director of Project Next Step at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is the author of "Be'er Hagolah" -- one of the classic interpretations of the commonly misunderstood...

  • Vital Learning

    By Beverly Gray

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    It's a Thursday evening at Sinai Temple. Thirty-eight adults grapple with Genesis 37:18-35, the passage in which Jacob's sons sell their brother Joseph into slavery. The text seems straightforward, but Prof. Walter Herzberg, who chairs the department of Jewish studies at the...

    Likely Orthodox Nominee Spurned by Some

    The next U.S. ambassador to Israel could be an Orthodox Jew, the first to hold that post.

    But the expected selection of career diplomat Daniel Kurtzer has generated intense opposition from an unlikely coalition of right-wing Jewish and...

  • Words, Blessed Words

    By Gina Nahai

    March 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Every year for Women's History Month, I'm asked to address groups of people brought together to mark the occasion. Some years it's at a university, a museum, or a foundation. This year it's in the Milken High School library.

    I like the idea, of course -- to support the library and...

  • Seder Storytelling

    By Rabbi Paul J. Kipnes

    March 29, 2001 | 6:59 pm

    There's much to be done as we turn to this month's Pesach passage to freedom: menus to be planned, guests to be invited, homes to be cleaned of their chametz (leavening). I start thinking about the most important aspect of a successful seder: creating a fun-filled, positive Jewish...

  • My Best Teacher

    By Beverly Gray

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    There will be one empty seat at our seder table this year. Blanche Wadleigh Bettington, who has helped us celebrate the Jewish people's liberation from Egypt since my college-age daughter was a baby, passed away on March 1. She was four months shy of her 100th birthday.

  • The Jewish King

    By Adam Wills

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    In the heat of a 1991 match, a player for the Buffalo Sabers called then-Canadiens defenseman Mathieu Schneider a "Jew boy." It was the first and only time Schneider had ever experienced anything remotely anti-Semitic in the NHL.

    The comment -- an attempt to tap into Schneider's...

    By Dr. Rosemary Cohen

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    At the end of August 1992, a young man, who had gone out to a bar because he was "bored," struck our car. The drunken driver injured my family and killed Liana, my 18-year-old daughter, as we were returning home from Friday night services. Liana was going to fly out the next day to...

  • Draw a Tree, Win a Contest

    By Jewish Journal Staff

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. That's how the judges of The Jewish Journal's first Tu B'Shevat Art Contest feel about having to pick just three winners out of so many terrific entries.

    The Journal was deluged with drawings from children aged 2-13 throughout the region. Competition was...

  • Doorposts of My House

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    On the day I came home following lung surgery, I saw God in my front doorway. I have lived in the same two-bedroom, mission-style house in Malibu for 26 years, seeing God mostly in the Passover guise of Elijah. When you're healthy, you assume God is with you all the time and don't...

  • The Toll of Violence

    By Daniel Gordis

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Friday night, the kids had gone to bed, and we found ourselves in the living room with some long-overdue quiet time. I was reading Tom Segev's book, "One Palestine, Complete," a revisionist account of the British Mandate, at a point in the book in which he spells out the seemingly...

  • Don’t Trust Me

    By J.D. Smith

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Darryl is a louse. He is a despicable person and if he treated me the way he treats women, I'm sure we wouldn't remain friends for long. He is dishonest, unfaithful, and utterly untrustworthy, but only in the ways of (what passes for) romance. He called me up the other day because...

  • Recognizing Goodness

    By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    The news is replete with sensationalistic stories that expose the violence and callousness in our society. The media seem to be competing in a contest of one-downmanship. The gossip of human denigration captures our attention. The good men do is oft interred with the bones, the evil...

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Yang Guinua, age 29, lives with her husband and two children in a tiny, dusty village in Yixian County near Beijing, China. Until two years ago, she was a farmer eking out a bare living with no prospects of a better life. When I visited her in September 2000, she told me that in 1998...

  • Waiting for Action

    By David Landau

    March 22, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Israel seemed to be holding its breath this week in the wake of three Palestinian attacks.

    The reaction wasn't born of fear but rather a sense that the moment of reckoning is at hand as Prime Minister Ariel Sharon returns from his first trip to Washington.

    Israel didn't respond to...
