  • The Artistry of ‘Art’

    By Gene Lichtenstein

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    n it debuted in the summer of 1994, Saveur reinvented the food magazine genre by focusing, like any good chef, as much on ingredients as on finished dishes. With its expertly lit and angled close-ups, the magazine gave food the same kind of attention most magazines devote to...

  • Wandering Jews

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    I had my qualms. Having endured every form of group torture in the name of uniting Jewish men and women, I initially resisted the Traveling Shabbat Singles ad. But I buckled. After all, bachelors can't be choosers.

    Here lies the beauty of Steve Epstein's brainchild. Every week,...

  • Meet LA’s Art Czar

    By Tom Tugend

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    When Joanne Corday Kozberg talks about her new job as president and chief operating officer of the downtown Music Center, the key words are "challenges," "outreach" and "re-energizing."

    The new job, which she will assume next month, is formidable even for someone who recently wrapped...

  • Jerry Falwell: Antichrist is Jewish

    By James D

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    The Rev. Jerry Falwell may be good friends with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, but he also believes that an apocalyptic whirlwind is about to descend on the world -- and that the ultimate villain in these events will be a Jew.

    Falwell, the founder of the Moral Majority, chancellor...

  • Our State of the Union

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Let us not, for the moment, worry about President Clinton, since he obviously can take care of himself. But Clinton's State of the Union address made me wonder: What is the Jewish State of the Union? By this I don't mean intermarriage or assimilation; I mean how are we, as activists...

  • The 50 Years War: Israel and the Arabs

    By Tom Tugend

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    The history of the Middle East conflict, from the birthpangs of the Jewish state to today's headlines, has rarely, if ever, been presented with more immediacy and human color as "The 50 Years War: Israel and the Arabs."

    The five-hour documentary will be telecast over PBS station KCET...

  • Parents As Pillars

    By Rabbi Janet Ross Marder

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    My daughter has always been the squeamish type. Once, when she was about 4 years old, we were talking about the exodus from Egypt -- the dark night of watching, when God told the Israelites to slaughter lambs and smear the blood on the doorposts of their houses so that the Holy One...

  • Hoop Dreams

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    In a Chicago Tribune interview last October, shortly before pro basketball was shut down by a bruising lockout, players' union chief Billy Hunter waxed sentimental about his lifelong passion for defending the underdog. By way of illustration, he recalled how, as a teen-ager in...

  • The Artistry of ‘Art’

    By Gene Lichtenstein

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    "Tongue of a Bird," now playing at the Mark Taper Forum, is a confoundedly difficult play. I'm not sure whether that's due to this reviewer's denseness or to the layers upon layers of meaning and tortured psychological undertones offered by playwright Ellen McLaughlin.

    In its simplest...

  • Collecting an Unpaid Debt

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    January 21, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Campus organizations often go overlooked or get taken for granted by students and alumni alike. Hillel at Pierce and Valley Colleges has those problems -- and then some. Try serving thousands of students on multiple campuses with a small staff and a smaller budget. And from an office...

  • Rebel with Another Cause

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Think Jean-Claude van Itallie, and you think, "icon of the 1960s."

    He is a legendary figure in the downtown New York theater scene and the author of "American Hurrah," considered to be a watershed political play of the Vietnam War era.

    Of late, the 62-year-old playwright has also...

  • Providing Lip Service

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Several years ago, Yvette Lowenthal's friend, ICM agent Doug Zandoren, thought her low rasp would make her a good candidate for radio spots. He was right. Since then, the twentysomething Lowenthal has been working nonstop, providing lip service on high-profile campaigns, which...

  • Northridge Renewal

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Over at Temple Ramat Zion in Northridge, they've planted a small garden. It's just a few flowers now. Adjacent is a patio that will one day hold benches, a place where Hebrew-school students can come study or where people can take...

  • School’s Out—Forever?

    By Beverly Gray

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    At a time when many Jewish day schools in the area are bursting at the seams and new ones move closer to opening their doors, Temple Isaiah Day School is making plans to go out of business.

    The formal decision about the fate of the school has just been handed down by the Reform...

  • Like Blood for Words

    By Susannah Heschel

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    "He who publicly shames his neighbor is as though he shed blood."

    -- Talmud Baba Mezia 58b

    Americans have been discussing the moral issues of the Starr Report in terms of Christian values. From the perspective of Judaism, however, the terms of the discussion change. Unfortunately,...

  • Israel Beyond 1999

    By Ruth Stroud

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Now that a year of reviewing and celebrating Israel's first half century has passed, it's time to ponder the next 50 years. That's the premise behind a daylong conference taking place on Jan. 24 in West Los Angeles.

    Sponsored by the Jewish Federation's Jewish Community Relations...

  • An Award of His Own

    By Rob Eshman

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    It is strange to be alone with Billy Crystal. He's still funny, insightful, charming -- but the venue is all wrong. The Castle Rock headquarters where he works in Beverly Hills has all the ambience of a mortgage brokerage. Crystal's own office is more homey: Craftsman furniture, a...

  • The Scent of Controversy

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Ronald Lauder, the billionaire cosmetics heir, philanthropist and conservative political activist, has been unanimously selected by a nominating committee to become the next chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

    The decision has ignited a...

  • Anything but Old School

    By Julie G Fax

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    There are some pretty big indicators that Ohr Eliyahu Academy, one of the city's youngest day schools, has secured a solid foothold in the Los Angeles Jewish educational landscape.

    The elementary school recently purchased the 4.5-acre Culver City public-school campus it has occupied...

  • The Producer

    By Ivor Davis

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    There isn't much Irwin Winkler doesn't know about making movies, which is maybe why, unlike a lot of the young hotshots who've been in the business five seconds, his favorite subject is not his own genius.

    Yet the Jan. 15 opening of "At First Sight," which he directed and stars Val...

  • Which Side Are You On?

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Is Mike Davis right about Los Angeles? And if so, what does it mean for our increasingly conservative Jewish community? That was the subtext of my meeting with Davis last Sunday at the Skirball Cultural Center.

    Davis' most recent book, "Ecology of Fear: Los Angeles and the...

  • Complaining the Jewish Way

    By Rabbi Elazar Muskin

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Schwartz, a wealthy Jew, took ill in Boston. The medics rushed him to the best hospital, Mass General, where he received VIP treatment. But, after one week, he requested to be transferred to Beth Israel, a much smaller and less prestigious hospital.

    At Beth Israel, an intern gathered...

  • Community Briefs

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Even for an international film producer and inveterate traveler, Arthur Cohn has covered a lot of territory recently.

    During the last week in October, the winner of a record five Oscars and producer of "The Garden of the Finzi-Continis" and "Central Station" was feted in Shanghai at...

  • The Circuit

    By Michael Aushenker

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    If the multitude of Jewish events are any indication, the holidays hit hard this season. To paraphrase Adam Sandler's "Chanukah Song," here's a list of organizations that are Jewish, just like you and me...

    Various divisions of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles celebrated...

  • Our Birthright

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    If you are between the ages of 15 and 26, you should pay attention to this particular column. Actually, if you are the parent of anyone 15 to 26, you should read what follows, on the theory that you are likely to be the person paying the bills.

    "The bills" in this instance concern a...

  • My Dinner at the Rabbi’s House

    By Teresa Strasser

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    When an important local rabbi invited me to his house for Shabbat dinner to discuss my column -- which he doesn't like -- I was appalled. How patronizing, I thought, to summon me to his home so that he can tell me, with home-court advantage, to change what I do.

    For days, I stewed....

  • The Marketing of Ehud Barak

    By Larry Derfner

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Now that the race for prime minister is on, the main challenger, Labor Party leader Ehud Barak, has suddenly become dynamic. He's talking loud, banging his fist on the table, giving it to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for all he's worth. Political observers watch the new,...

  • A Better Strategy

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    History never precisely repeats itself. I was cleaning up after dinner the other evening when I heard my daughter, Samantha, now nearly 17, on the phone; she was talking with a guy named Vinnie.

    "Vinnie?" I said, as she hung up. "I think we should be focusing on Jewish guys now, don't...

  • The Year of Bill and Bibi

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Whatever others may say of it, Jewish history will surely record 1998 as the Year of Bill and Bibi. It was a split-screen, slow-motion cliffhanger of a year, part soap opera, part science fiction. Plotline: the political hara-kiri of two of the world's most promising, most...

  • The Human Element of Diplomacy

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    The all-night sessions, heated confrontations and threats of walkouts that marked the recent Wye Accord negotiations had their parallel 20 years ago, when the Camp David Agreement lay the groundwork for the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty.

    Back then, as now, the personalities and human...
