  • Holocaust Reflections

    By Rabbi Baruch Cohon

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The Los Angeles Jewish Symphony (LAJS) needs a concert hall. It has an outstanding conductor in Dr. Noreen Green, talented and accomplished musicians, and a loyal following. I've heard LAJS perform with increasing brilliance at venues, including the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza,...

  • Two Mothers

    By Ellen Jaffe-Gill

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    At first glance, it would be hard to imagine two women with less in common than my mother and my husband's mother. You can begin with the obvious differences in cultural and religious background: my mother grew up Jewish in the Bronx, while my mother-in-law, a Presbyterian, has lived...

  • Pope Blasted For Silence

    By Michael J. Jordan

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    When the Western-educated Bashar Assad succeeded his father, Hafez Assad, as president of Syria last summer, Israeli officials hoped the changing of the guard from the Lion of Damascus to the Optometrist of Damascus would usher in a gentler approach toward Israel.

    Young Assad has...

    By Eric Silver

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The intifada took a fateful stride from popular uprising toward war this week with news that the Palestinians are stockpiling longer-range, more lethal weapons that could threaten Ashkelon and Tel Aviv, as well as paralyzing flights from Ben-Gurion International Airport.

  • Uniting to Fight Prostate Cancer

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Bob Dole. General Norman Schwarzkopf. Harry Belafonte. Robert Goulet. The willingness of such well-known figures to make public their battle with prostate cancer has brought visibility to an issue that until the last few years, lacked the attention, funding and research interest...

    A Very 'Fly' Party

    Increasingly, Los Angeles' club scene has come to resemble opening scenes from "Blade" -- the zombified undead, clad in black and leather, writhing in an epileptic trance to over-amped, palpitating techno heartbeats.

    Not so at a recent Israeli Independence Day...

  • A Safe Spot

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    For the child whose parent has been diagnosed with cancer, each day becomes fraught with uncertainty -- will Mom or Dad be there today when I get home from school, or back in the hospital? Will Dad be too sick to come to my softball game? Why does Mom have to take that medicine that...

  • Opening a Door

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Just off Highway 101, about an hour south of San Francisco, stands a remarkable spiritual landmark. For years, as we drove up the coast, we would see signs and bumper stickers enticing us to visit the Winchester Mystery House. Finally, a year ago, we did.

    The story of this landmark...

  • A Bloody Wait

    By Rob Eshman

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    With the Palestinian murder of two 14-year-old Jews, Yaakov Nathan Mandell and Yosef Ishran, and the killing by Israeli fire of 4-month-old Iman Hejjo, the cycle of violence in Israel seems primal and unstoppable. Blood cries out for blood, the wails of parents drown the speeches...

  • A Matter of Integrity

    By Tom Tugend

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    In the neck-and-neck race for city attorney of Los Angeles, throw out the form sheets based on the customary political, ethnic and ideological benchmarks.

    Both Michael "Mike" Feuer and Rockard "Rocky" Delgadillo are Democrats. They are vigorous young men (Mike is 42; Rocky is 40),...

  • Mother of Invention

    By Jane Ulman

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The photographs from my son Gabe's bar mitzvah sit on my dining room table, waiting to be ordered.

    His bar mitzvah took place more than a year ago.

    The handpainted needlepoint canvas that I am stitching for my husband's 50th birthday remains unfinished. Never mind that he's now 51.

    I...

  • Our Moment of Truth

    By David Suissa

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The Orthodox community should take advantage of the firestorm created by Rabbi David Wolpe's Exodus sermon to make its own compelling case. What we need right now is more light, not more heat. I'd love to see us share that light.

    We can start by reminding the world, for instance,...

  • Acting Unimaginable

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Actor Ben Kingsley was glowering.

    He'd been asked to comment on the critics who suggest there are currently too many Holocaust films. "How dare they?" he hissed, with an angry glint in his brown eyes. "If people want to ignore history, they are only digging their own graves."

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    In April 1999, the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article about growing etrogim, the citron fruit used during Sukkot, in Northern California. The paper reported that in 1980 an entrepreneurial Orthodox teenager from Brooklyn decided to develop a domestic source of etrogim,...

  • The Great Stuff Swap

    By Teresa Strasser

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    In comes the summer and out goes my latest boyfriend. He was a great guy, funny, smart and possessing what my mom calls "The Big Three": a job, a car and an apartment. The only problem was that getting his affection was somewhat like getting gasoline during the Carter administration;...

    Artificial Insemination



    Dear Rabbi,

    My sister is married to my husband's older brother. He was diagnosed with Kleinfelter's syndrome. They have been trying in vitro fertilization with donor sperm and even went into his testicles to retrieve sperm, but nothing has worked.

    We have...

  • The Waiting Room

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Four guys sit in the Insider's Waiting Room at Cedars-Sinai Cancer Center, preparing to have blood drawn. Like many cancer patients, they dress like they've just had a run around the track: sweats, athletic shoes and, of course, baseball caps. With cancer, you've got to be ready to...

  • Memories in Melody

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    For Ilana Besha, 19, the songs conjure up images of the first mass aliyah from famine-stricken Ethiopia to the Promised Land. "When word came to our village that we were going to Israel, it was like a dream come true," said the teenager, who was in Los Angeles last week with Shlomo...

  • Grasping the Shoah

    By Ellen Jaffe-Gill

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    In a small town in eastern Tennessee, a town without Jews, teenagers are almost halfway through a project that will give them a visual handle on the enormity of the Shoah.

    Eighth-grade students at the 425-student Whitwell Middle School -- whose student body is all white except for...

  • Intifada: No Let-up

    By Gil Sedan

    May 3, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Israel doesn't understand the Palestinians, lamented a former official who has spent years trying to do so, and this is why Israel doesn't know how to deal with them.

    The speaker was Ami Ayalon, until recently the head of the Shin Bet security service, which fights an ongoing war...

  • Sunday in the Park

    By Michael Aushenker

    May 3, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Maybe the post-apocalyptic parking situation was a tip-off. The overcapacity of automobiles surrounding Woodley Park seemed to confirm that this year's Israeli Independence Day Festival outdid itself in terms of spectacle and attendance. An estimated 50,000 attended, festival...

  • Fair Weight

    By Rabbi Daniel Bouskila

    May 3, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Honesty, morality and ethical behavior -- these are the calling cards of Leviticus, and they are the centerpieces of Jewish behavior and identity. Amongst the mitzvot enumerated in Leviticus 19 (known by some scholars as the "Holiness Code") are respect for parents, charity for the...

  • Jewish Giving is Still Looking Good

    By Melissa Minkin

    May 3, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    When the stock market entered bear territory last month, individual investors weren't the only ones taking note. The continued softening of the market can also have a major effect on nonprofit organizations, many of which have benefited greatly from an exceptional run during the past...
