  • Understanding Love

    By Michael J. Gotlieb

    May 4, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Of all the verses in the Bible, the verse "Love your neighbor as yourself, I am God" (Lev. 19:18) is among the most popular. But what does the verse mean? One wit suggested it should be understood as "Love your neighbor as yourself, but choose your neighborhood." Rabbi Akiba, the...
  • Something New

    May 4, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    I think "Automotive Denial" should be entered into the American Psychiatric Association's "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders." Telltale signs you are suffering from the disorder include uttering the phrases, "I could fix this thing today, but I don't want to,"...
  • Coming Back for Seconds?

    By Burt Prelutsky

    May 4, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    It figures, inasmuch as nobody really knows what happens to people when they die, that a slew of goofy theories would spring up to fill the void. Still, none of them strikes me as being half as bizarre as reincarnation, the ideology that presumes people keep coming back until they...
  • Bulletin Board

    May 4, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Richard Alarcon looks a lot more relaxed these days. Although it is the final weeks before the Nov. 3 election, his race for the state senate's 20th District seat appears to be a sure win -- and the political atmosphere considerably less charged than when he was dealing with the...

    Rob Paperno, whose paternal heritage goes back to Livorno, Italy, left the family restaurant business in Los Angeles seven years ago (remember the Oak Tree Deli in Encino?) to devote himself to the great passion of his life- a bicycling exploration of his Jewish heritage.

    Israel this week came out of its shell and launched a public campaign against the trial of 13 Iranian Jews charged in Isfahan with spying for Israel and the United States.

    By Michael J

    May 4, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Iranian hard-liners are showing no signs of backing down in the trial of 13 Iranian Jews accused of spying for Israel.

    However, what remains unclear -- in light of a state-televised confession Monday of the alleged leader, Hamid "Dani" Tefileen -- is whether Tefileen will take the...

  • Reflections On David Irving

    By Deborah E. Lipstadt

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    In 1995, when I opened a letter informing me that David Irving was suing me for libel for calling him a Holocaust denier, I had precisely the same reaction that I had 20 years earlier when I first heard that there were people who denied the Holocaust. I laughed.

    Why, I wondered, take...

  • Last Man Painting

    By Michael Aushenker

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    There was a time when Kalman Aron was not creating art for a living, but for his life.

  • Aural History

    By Michael Aushenker

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    It sounds like a no-brainer: an audio documentary featuring firsthand Holocaust survivor accounts. Yet despite the familiarity of the concept behind "Voices of the Shoah: Remembrances of the Holocaust," the project's producer, filmmaker David Notowitz, insists that "until now,...
  • Counting Our Days

    By Rabbi Shawn Fields-Meyer

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    "Ima, how old am I today?"

    My oldest son's sixth birthday is coming soon. Recently, he has developed a near obsession with calculating exactly how old he is on a daily basis, practically down to the hour. Of course he is hardly unique. From our earliest years, we humans feel the...

    By Yuval Rotem

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    During May, both the United States and Israel will mark their respective Memorial Days. While the American version will have many remembrance events, most people will spend the day at barbecues, picnics or at the beach. This is not the case in Israel.

    On the evening of May 8, as...

    By David Hartman

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Uncertainty and anxiety about our future dominate the mood in Israeli society. The peace process that requires territorial compromise, the future of the Golan Heights, the withdrawal from Lebanon are all security issues that fill us with feelings of doubt and uncertainty.

  • Yom HaShoah: The Changes in Memory

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    It is 55 years now -- a long time given our own life span -- since the Nazi concentration camps were liberated and those tortured photographs of the living and the dead were first shown to us. Even in the midst of a world war where the escalating death count was part of our annual...

  • Evolving Feminism

    By Johanna Hershenson

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    When my first daughter was born, I welcomed her into the world with a naming ceremony on the eighth day of her life, which happened to be a Thursday. The ceremony took place at a time that was convenient for the officiating rabbi and not necessarily the people who have jobs or a...

    One day, about 12 years ago, David Lisker turned on the record player, picked up a pencil and waved it about to conduct a Mahler symphony. Lots of music-lovers do that. But it's not exactly typical behavior for a 2-year-old child.

    David's mother, Inna Lisker, recalls that day as...

  • Jewish Research Calling

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    If you get a phone call in the next few months from a stranger with lots of questions, don't assume it's a telemarketer.

    The person on the other end of the line may be more interested in hearing about your Jewish identity than telling you about the latest credit card deal.

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    It's a Saturday morning at Adat Shalom in West Los Angeles. Adat Shalom is a mainstream Conservative synagogue, but there's nothing ordinary about the Shabbat service I'm attending.

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm
