    Trees are Terrific

    This week's portion, Shoftim, talks all about trees. In one very important paragraph, we learn that we are never to cut down fruit trees, even when it is a time of war and the fruit trees belong to the enemy. God says: You are not going to war against the trees....

  • Is P.A. Taking Steps Against Terror?

    By Gil Sedan

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Israel is skeptical about the Palestinian Authority's tentative measures against terrorism -- and is following up by conducting anti-terror operations of its own.

    Both Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and Israel's army chief of staff, Moshe Ya'alon, said this week that the...

    Programs Survive State Budget Slash

    Several programs that cater to a largely Jewish clientele have survived California's budget ax -- for now.

    The Adult Day Health Care Center in North Hollywood, which had been expected to close with the passage of a state budget, got a new lease...

  • There’s No Alternative to Pursuing Peace

    By M.J. Rosenberg

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The bus bombing in Jerusalem demonstrates, as nothing else could, that there is no alternative to implementing President Bush's "road map" in all its parts. That means that the Palestinian Authority has to live up to its commitment to shut down the terror groups once and for all,...

    "Triangle: The Fire That Changed America," by David Von Drehle (Atlantic Monthly Press, $26)

    We live in cynical times. For years, young people have felt disengaged from the political process. Knowledge of governmental figures and the workings of law seem more tenuous among college...

  • Where You Stand

    By Rabbi Allen I. Freehling

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    We are standing before God and God is standing before us -- especially during this particular time, when certain fundamental liberties are being denied individuals and when justice is being withheld from specific groups -- all in the name of "homeland security." This week's Torah...

  • Black (and Jewish) Is Beautiful

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Rain Pryor solemnly chants the "Kol Nidre" as the spotlight reveals her silhouette -- wearing a hilariously oversized Afro wig.

    "What's the big deal if I'm black and a Jew?" she says.

    She answers the question in her irreverent solo show, "Fried Chicken & Latkas," which describes...

    By Dan Katzir

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "Did you ever kill anyone?" Lisa asks me.

    Our first date is painfully coming to an end, and after two hours of chemistry-less conversation, Lisa seems as reserved as she did the moment she walked into the restaurant. Like many Jewish girls I've met in this city, Lisa is wearing an...

  • Moonstruck in Israel

    By Julie G Fax

    August 21, 2003 | 8:01 pm

    The moon doesn't usually make me cry. I've been struck by the amber beauty of a harvest moon low on the horizon or by the tantilizing grace of a silver sliver dangling high in the sky.

    But this moon -- rising at dusk over the walls of Jerusalem's Old City in perfect pinkish...

  • Letting Go

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    We leave well before dawn and as we speed through darkness I keep asking myself how it is that I'm now the parent of a college student -- I can still remember vividly the details of my own freshman year almost 30 years ago.

    Arriving at the college, we locate the information booth,...

    Catholic Teachers Learn About Holocaust

    Fourth-grade teacher Humberto De La Rosa had never heard of the term "anti-Semitic." Like most of his students at St. Malachy, a Catholic school in South Los Angeles, which is 75 percent black and 25 percent Latino, the educator had little...

  • State of Siege

    By Rob Eshman

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Even if you've forgotten Mohammed al-Dura, hundreds of millions of Muslims haven't.

    This week, as suicide bombers killed more than 20 in Jerusalem and 17 in Iraq, it's hard to remember al-Dura, the 12-year-old boy shot and killed on Sept. 30, 2000, during an exchange of fire between...

  • Both Sides Need to Stay on the Path

    By Daniel Sokatch

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The terrorist who blew himself up on a crowded Jerusalem bus Tuesday night did more than murder 20 Israelis and injure more than 100 others.

    As was undoubtedly his intent, he also dealt a serious, perhaps fatal, blow to the struggling, fragile "road map" peace process. The horror of...

  • Dollars and Sense of Jesus Films

    By David Finnigan

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Despite Mel Gibson's solid box office reputation, a major Hollywood studio stepping forward to distribute his $25 million Jesus film "The Passion" is not a certainty. The film falls long after Hollywood's era of Bible epics and outside the trend of Jesus movies finding safe homes on...

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    My ex-boyfriend and I had been engaging in some very dangerous activities lately. At first it started out as a rekindled friendship.

    And then it grew into dinner dates, late nights and long talks. Then we crossed the "just friends" boundaries and got intimate. But the most dangerous...

    New NPR Standards

    I have no reason to believe that Kevin Klose's new standards for fair coverage at NPR means anything ("New Standards for Fair Coverage at NPR," Aug. 15). For so long, NPR has been so biased against Israel and beholden to Arab/Muslim interests that it does not...

    He was the guy with all the good lines. The late Saul Steinberg helped establish The New Yorker magazine as a purveyor of visual excellence. "Art of the Spirit," an exhibit at The Jewish Federation running through Dec. 15, is a welcome reminder of the late illustrator's visual wit.

    In this week's Torah portion, Re'eh, we are yet again told not to forget the needy. The Torah just can't stop repeating this message. This time it uses the words "do not harden your heart." Pharoah also hardened his heart. He gets so used to hardening his...
