  • The Salesman

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    A few months ago, I asked my father, now happily retired, what profession he would choose if he were starting over again.

    "Oh, I'd do the same thing," Dad said. "I'd be a salesman."

    "A salesman?"

    "Yes. I'm good at it."

    It's Father's Day, and I am so glad that Dad is around to read...

  • Tinseltown Exposed

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    When Bernard Rose first met superagent Jay Moloney, the inspiration for his controversial new film, "ivansxtc," he was a hot young director courted by every agent in town. "I was staying at the Mondrian, and gifts would suddenly appear in my room," says the 41-year-old Jewish Brit,...

    By Naomi Segal

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Mushrooms, peppers and extra cheese, please -- but hold the explosives. Concerns about booby-trapped pizzas have led the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to impose restrictions on the use of a Web site that allows users to spice up the Israeli army service by sending pies to soldiers....

    Saturday

    Arthur Miller's most personal play is back in Los Angeles after 24 years, and the Fountain Theatre's revival of the drama about Miller's life with Marilyn Monroe has received a fair amount of acclaim. But take heed, "After the Fall" won't be around after the summer. With the...

  • Netanyahu’s Tactical Mistake

    By David Newman

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    By Amy Klein

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Dr. Robert Khorhramian had never been to Israel before. Since he moved to Los Angeles from Iran in the late 1970s, the 46-year-old foot and ankle surgeon had planned many times to visit, yet something came up every time. But last month at Sinai Temple, he heard about the 48-hour...

  • Taking the West Bank Off the Chopping Block

    By Rabbi Dov Fischer

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The recent landslide vote of the Israeli Likud Party, utterly rejecting an Arab country west of the Jordan River, reflects the evolving mindset of the largest political party in Israel. There is good reason for that position -- the land of Judea and Samaria, birthplace of Judaism and...

  • Father’s Day

    By Rabbi Steven Z. Leder

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    "Rabbi, do you make house calls?" the man named Mike on the other end of the phone wanted to know. "My dad was never religious, but he said he'd like to see a rabbi before he dies. He's living with us now, and he can't get out any more. Please?"

    The address was on a winding, urban,...

  • Eulogies:Sivan Hamburger,

  • Inuit All Along

    By Journal Staff

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Call him Norman of the North -- or the Wandering Jew.

    That's the best way to explain how cinematographer Norman Cohn of Washington Heights, N.Y., moved to the Canadian Arctic and shot the first Inuit-language feature film. He was the only non-Inuit to work on Zacharius Kunuk's "The...

  • To Exile or Not to Exile?

    By Leslie Susser

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Since the intifada began, Israeli officials have declared Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat "irrelevant," a "terrorist," an "enemy" and a "pathological liar."

    Now, after more than 20 months of relentless Palestinian terror, Prime Minster Ariel Sharon is said to have made...

    On Sept. 6, 1941, the Nazis crammed 20,000 Lithuanian Jews into the Vilna ghetto. On Sept. 9, 1943, the ghetto was liquidated and its remaining 12,000 Jews were marked for extermination.

    Remarkably, during the two years of its existence, the ghetto supported a thriving theater,...

  • Fierce Determination

    By Teresa Strasser

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I admit, it doesn't sound pleasant. You enter a room that's been heated to above 100 degrees. The heat isn't as suffocating as the odor, a wall of smell that hits you like a thousand stinky shoes.

    You inhale the scent of sweaty armpits and groins, of excreted toxins, byproducts of...

  • Parshat Korach

    By Abby Gilad

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Korach decides to pick a fight with Moses. He says: Hey! I'm a Levite, too! Don't I deserve to be given as much honor as you Moses? A whole group of Israelites decides to take Korach's side. And, boy, are they sorry. The earth opens beneath them and swallows them all.

    Have you ever decided to take sides when two of your friends are having a fight? How did that turn out for you? If you ever see a fight going on, it's better to get involved only as a peacemaker and not as a side-taker.

  • Dissent in Los Angeles

  • A One-sided Case

    By Rabbi Yakov Vann

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Ever meet someone who always seems angry? A person ready to bite at your every word? An individual before whom you need to walk on eggshells whenever you interact with them? Why is that? What is at the root of the problem and what should our approach be in dealing with them?

  • A Tough Farewell

    By Ellen Jaffe-Gill

    June 13, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    It's hard to know who will suffer the greater wrench this summer: Rabbis Jackie and David Ellenson, as they leave Los Angeles, or Jewish Los Angeles for losing them.

    A year after being named president of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), David Ellenson is...

  • Love, Israeli Style

    By Amy Klein

    June 6, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Have you ever been in love? Really in love, I mean, the warts-and-all kind that lasts beyond initial infatuation, the kind that lifts your heart nearly all the time, despite everything.

    For me, at age 18, I think it was more like an arranged marriage than love at first sight. When I...

  • Israel Bolsters Local GOP Support

    By Adam Wills

    June 6, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    While the Bush administration's strong support for Israel might not yet be paying off dividends in the Middle East, the stance has certainly been a boon for local Jewish Republicans.

  • Dirty Facts

    By Phil Shuman

    June 6, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The lawyers have a term for it, of course. A situation where certain facts don't make their client look so good, even though their client is innocent and righteous. They're called "dirty facts." The Middle East is hardly a courtroom, yet I think the term applies. I'm thinking of...
