    On any given Sunday, there are more community-bonding events going on than you can shake a lulav at. Take June 10, when The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) buzzed with activity.

  • Visiting the Sick

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 21, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    You'd have no trouble finding me in the treatment area of Cedars-Sinai Cancer Center. Even from a distance, mine is the little roomlet that rings with soft laughter and the sound of -- well, yes -- a party going on.

    How dare I have fun during chemotherapy? It's not that I look...

  • Redefining Beauty

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 21, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Four years ago, Camryn Manheim walked into David Kelley's office, feeling glum. She knew the executive producer didn't want her for his new ABC drama, "The Practice." After all, Hollywood typically ridiculed women who were 5-foot-10 and a size 22. Kelley practically yawned throughout...

    By Mike Levy

    June 21, 2001 | 7:59 pm

    Playwright Wendy Wasserstein went ahead and called her new essay collection "Shiksa Goddess." But not to worry, the title essay -- a spoof on discovering her Episcopalian "roots" -- and 34 others prove that Wasserstein remains the same witty Jewish cultural critic her fans have come...

    A few weeks ago I welcomed Shabbat in Iquitos, Peru, one of the most isolated cities in the world. Located four degrees south of the Equator and surrounded by nearly impenetrable jungle, Iquitos is accessible only by air or by river -- that is, the Amazon.

    The Shabbat service was...

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Jewish charitable organizations are not going to get the help they were hoping for in the new tax bill, since the final version leaves out a proposal that might have boosted giving by billions of dollars.

  • Election Twist

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    A week after the L.A. mayoral election, believe me, I too would rather be discussing the Lakers vs. the 76ers than the meaning of the Jewish vote. But I went out on a limb for former Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa against the ultimate winner, City Attorney James Hahn, on the...

    Yehuda Chaim

    The U.S. State Department has no position on rock-throwing as violence. Tell that to Batsheva and Benny Shoham, whose infant son, Yehuda Chaim, was buried this week, after sustaining a crushing head injury by a terrorist's rock. His tiny body was wrapped in a tallit, to...

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Imagine a sunny Saturday afternoon. Families walking home from shul along quiet streets cross a well-worn thoroughfare, once the site of a rail system running through the neighborhood like a gentle stream, now transformed into a freeway for high-speed buses. The light changes and the...

    By Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    When thinking about the fiasco of the Israelite spying venture into the Land of Canaan, we often focus on the question "How did it go so wrong?" How could Israel's elite, entrusted with the task of preparing Israel's conquest of the land, become so frightened? And how could they have...

    The red-hot Philly basketball team has a pint-sized but flashy star shooter and an old-school coach who's more teacher than tough disciplinarian. The media constantly compares the teams to the biblical David. Sound like America's new favorite team, the Philadelphia 76ers, who took on...

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    We're at dinner in New York with a few of my friends. My father has never met any of these guys before, so he's free to begin his repertoire at the beginning, tabula rasa. Pop had quite a storied career in the music business, and an evening out with him is like buying an interactive...

    The observation is among the hundreds of telling remarks and casual asides by ordinary German...
