    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    It was only a day after the Twin Towers had fallen, and already it seemed that United States policy toward Israel was changing.

  • Finding the ‘It’ Shul

    By Carin Davis

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    In Los Angeles, the happening High Holiday haunts sell out faster than Springsteen at The Forum. And the tickets cost just as much. So every fall, Jewish singletons like myself do the New Year hustle, seeking out affordable, last-minute tickets to The Main Event. About a week before...

  • Ambulatory Assistance

  • LAPD Preps for Sept. 11

    By Phil Shuman

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The big new Ford Excursion sat baking in the hot afternoon sun. A closer look at this massive vehicle was chilling. Gun ports cut into the thick bullet-resistant glass windows. Armor-reinforced doors so heavy you needed two hands to close them. Rear seats removed to make room for...

    By Journal Staff

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    With all the discussion, confusion and controversy about the Bush administration's planned actions against Saddam Hussein,it's ironic that President Bush, a born-again Bible reader, appears to have rejected the Christian position and adopted instead the Jewish stance on self-defense...

  • 7 Days In Arts

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm


    Got some time between services and your next Rosh Hashana meal? Unwinding with a book may sound nice, but perhaps that Jackie Collins paperback isn't quite appropriate to the day. Try "Seven Heavens: Inspirational Stories to Elevate Your Soul," instead. Based on his work...

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    As we enter the year 5763, the mood of the Jewish people is justifiably dark indeed.

  • 9/11/02

    By Rob Eshman

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Now a year has passed. We have bombed. We have infiltrated. We have analyzed and rallied and written.

    And through it all we have avoided one sad truth: the terrorists have already won.

    They haven't won the war, but they have won a crucial battle.

    My first memory of terror goes back...

  • Truths in Pearl’s Final Words

    By Tom Tugend

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Did Daniel Pearl die as a martyr, proudly proclaiming his Jewishness, or did his abductors force a reluctant admission from him at gunpoint shortly before they killed him?

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Husband Goes AWOL at Holidays

    Dear Wendy,

    My husband and I have the same argument every year: I ask him to attend High Holiday services with me, and he refuses. He claims he is not a believer and does not want to be hypocritical. I've tried every argument to change his mind....

  • Community Celebration

    September 5, 2002 | 7:59 pm

    A massive gathering on a construction site overlooking Orange County didn't celebrate the Jewish community's newest school, community center, office building, art gallery, fitness center, swimming pool or theater.

    It celebrated all those things.

    Some 1,000 Orange County Jews came...

    September 5, 2002 | 7:59 pm

    Once again, they are upon us: the High Holidays. For some, the holidays are a time to reconnect with family and friends they haven't seen in a year. Others look on this as a time of spiritual renewal. And most -- whether they like it or not -- spend a significant part of the holidays...

  • Thinking Twice About War

    By J.J. Goldberg

    September 5, 2002 | 7:59 pm

    On a single day during Passover 1986, most of Israel's major dailies ran oddly identical front-page stories describing a secret negotiation, recently collapsed, between Israel and Iraq. Iraq, it was said, had approached Israeli representatives in New York, asking that Jerusalem...

  • 7 Days in the Arts

    By Keren Engelberg

    August 29, 2002 | 8:00 pm


    You know you've been wondering this too: Will Salma Hayek cease plucking for her role as Frida Kahlo or will she opt instead for a unibrow toupee? Seems we'll have to wait for the movie to find out. But if you're Jonesing for a Frida fix right now, Ballet Folklorico Del...

    August 29, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    On a typical Shabbat morning at the Nessah Synagogue in Beverly Hills, there is seldom a free seat in the spanking new 1,200-seat sanctuary. At Nessah, like other traditional Orthodox synagogues in Los Angeles, men and women sit separately, men lead the services and they don't use a...

    By Allen I. Freehling

    August 29, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Even if the reader is a person who does not regularly attend Shabbat worship services when the Torah is read, the text of Nitzavim will be somewhat familiar, inasmuch as it is offered not only as a reading during the Sabbath we are about to observe, but it is also presented as the...
