  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...
