    By Lori Gottlieb

    April 11, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    When it comes to faith, Niles Goldstein seems to have it in spades -- at least the faith in his own survival. After all, when the 36-year-old rabbi went on a quest to find God, he didn't play musical synagogues or do a Beatles-style sit-in with the Maharishi. Instead, he set out on a...

    By Sharon Schatz Rosenthal

    April 11, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The Shirettes, five peppy women clad in jeans and T-shirts, sang a good morning song complete with hand motions, as one of them strummed along on a guitar. The audience applauded heartily -- only instead of the local singing group's usual nursery school audience, the crowd consisted...

    Used to be that every once in a blue moon, a rare Republican, who happened to be Jewish, would decide to run for office in the heavily Democratic San Fernando Valley, only to be soundly defeated at the polls.

    The third annual daylong symposium sponsored by the Jewish Federation in Worcester, Mass., was titled, "A Woman's Voice," without the slightest hint of irony. Less than a generation ago, "a woman's voice" meant only one thing, the talmudic prohibition of Orthodox men toward hearing...
