  • Studying Hate in Berlin

    By Tom Tugend

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The globalization of trade and communications may soon be joined by a new globalization of anti-Semitism, according to a German scholar who knows the subject well.

    "The anti-Semitic virus may now be less virulent in Western Europe, but it is taking hold in new places, like Japan, and...

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    On the last evening of Moshe Katsav's three-day visit to Los Angeles, it was the turn of the Iranian Jewish community to fete Israel's Iranian-born president, and the hosts made the most of it.

    Like a Jewish mother drawing pleasure from a favorite son, speaker after speaker during a...

  • Survivor: The Musical

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 14, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    It was early June, and the clock was ticking ominously for composer William Goldstein.

    He'd already written the score for "Oswego: An American Haven," a musical about the rescue of 982 refugees from Nazi-occupied Europe, based on Ruth Gruber's memoir. There were lyrics by Joe Darion...

  • Evil as a Day’s Work

    By Tom Tugend

    June 14, 2001 | 7:59 pm

    "There was no shouting or wailing," recalls a Nazi army veteran in wonder after watching Polish Jews digging their own graves before being machine-gunned. "There was a deadly silence."

    The observation is among the hundreds of telling remarks and casual asides by ordinary German...

  • Rallying Support

    By Tom Tugend

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Two dozen colorfully dressed fourth- and fifth-graders from the Pressman Academy, waving small Israeli flags, welcomed Israel's President Moshe Katsav and his wife Gila with Hebrew songs as they arrived Monday evening at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

    An hour later, in the hotel's Crystal...

  • Sexy Beast

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    "Cinema, synagogue, what's the difference?" breezily quips director Jonathan Glazer. "You get fairly dominant Jewish personalities in both."

    The British director appears to be one of those personalities, at least on the cinema front. Like directors Spike Jonze and David Fincher, the...

  • Heeding a Tenuous Cease-Fire

    By Eric Silver

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The suicide bombing last Friday night that killed 20 young Israelis outside a beach-front disco in Tel Aviv trans-formed Israel's international image from bully boy to victim. The Palestinians reverted overnight to their old role as the bad guys.

    German Foreign Minister Joschka...

    Mideast Media Bias

    I cannot adequately express how thankful I am for your running these stories ("Is This Balanced Reporting?" May 25). I know that all the people at CAMERA who work so hard, in what is certainly a frustrating effort to counter the unbalanced reporting (especially...

  • 7 Days In Arts

    By Mike Levy

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    9/Saturday

    Rage, anger, grief, sexuality and female power are all brought to light through beautiful and emotional dances by Donna Sternberg & Dancers. The performances include skittering, whimsy and sweeping movements that portray childhood feelings of carefree giddiness, as well as...

  • Winners and Losers

    By Tom Tugend

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    While the Jewish vote apparently split down the middle in James K. Hahn's victory over Antonio Villaraigosa in the contest for mayor, there was bad news and good news for Jewish candidates in other races.

    Former City Councilman Michael Feuer, who had led in the polls and early...

  • Reunited

    By Michael Aushenker

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    It was a rekindling of a friendship that lay dormant for 56 years.

    On Memorial Day, at his lavish hillside manor, philanthropist Fred Kort, 77, reunited with an old friend, Victor Bilski, 80, for the first time since May 8, 1945 -- the day World War II ended in Europe. In the Korts'...

  • The Circuit

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Conscious of the Jewish Image

    It was a photo contest asking artists to embody the spirit of Judaism. But here's the rub -- the contest was only open to amateur artists who had never pursued photography professionally. Curated by Sacha Bodner, UCLA Hillel's Jewish Campus Service...

  • The Big Win

    By Rob Eshman

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    In a week that began with tragic news, there was one unalloyed cause for celebration: on Tuesday, Rabbi David H. Ellenson was named president of Hebrew Union College--Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR). This, as they say, is huge: for Ellenson, for Reform Jewry, for Los Angeles.

  • New Directions

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Who's the big winner in Tuesday's Los Angeles mayoral election? My bet is real estate developer Steve Soboroff. James Kenneth Hahn may be an old-line Democrat, but he benefited mightily from the silence maintained by the wealthy Republican businessman, who had come in third in the...

  • Bad Jews

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    At one point in Gerald Shapiro's acclaimed short-story collection, "Bad Jews," an artist named Kenneth Rosenthal is having a Philip Roth moment.

  • Opposing Hate at UCLA

    By Julie G Fax

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    This year's annual Anti-Zionism Week on the UCLA campus saw some of the usual rhetoric: "Zionist oppressors. Israel is an apartheid state. Jewish racism is killing Arabs. Palestinian refugee camps equal Nazi concentration camps."

    It was this last slogan, written on a sign adorned...

  • Shalhevet Experiences Israel

    By Judy Lash Balint

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Even as organizations are canceling their summer Israel programs, for some teens already in Israel the experience is proving invaluable.

    A dozen 10th-grade Shalhevet High School students in the middle of a six-week study trip in Israel held a videoconference last week with their...

  • Searching for a Response

    By Mike Levy

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Here in Los Angeles, 7,590 miles away from Israel, many Jews feel the conflict as if it were happening at home.

    And they don't know what to do about it.

    While New York Jews gathered on Sunday somewhat spontaneously for a 10,000-person rally to protest the situation in Israel, West...

  • Test of Fear

    By Tom Tugend

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Millions of civilians faced the ultimate test of character when Nazi armies occupied their countries and started deporting their Jewish neighbors.

    Most reacted like normal human beings; that is, they looked the other way, when they did not actively collaborate with the conqueror. A...

  • Fighting the Israel Bash-a-Thon

    By James D. Besser

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Critics of the United Nations have been handed a big load of new ammunition as the international body careens toward a high-profile conference that could be the biggest Israel bash-a-thon ever.

  • Soul Care

    By Rabbi Shawn Fields-Meyer

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    I recently visited a hospital patient, an elderly gentleman with a name, a gaze and a life story from the old country. His deterioration had advanced to the stage of inhibiting verbal communication, so he spoke to me instead through gestures, nods and stares. But slowly, we drew...

  • Summer in Israel: To send or not to send?

    By Mike Levy

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    If the point of terrorism is to slowly whittle down the confidence of its targets, it seems to be working.

    Until last Friday's suicide bombing at a Tel Aviv nightclub, parents throughout Los Angeles had planned to send their children on a variety of summer trips to Israel despite...

  • Dad Speaks Out

    By Nelson Strasser

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    My Dad is hard to shop for. Whatever gift we come up with is usually met with the phrase "You kids shouldn't have spent the money," followed by "Is this returnable?" In honor of Father's Day next week, I thought I'd give him about 800 words to say whatever he wants. What follows is...

  • A City of No Rules

    By Joel Kotkin

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    This week's stunning election results marked not so much the end of political regime, but the beginning of a new one. After decades of politics dominated by racial and ideological coalitions, the city's new politics reflect a growing diversity not only between groups but among them.

  • Painting Nightmares Away

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 7, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Thea Robertshaw suffered recurring nightmares long after her parents hid Jews in Nazi-occupied Holland. "They were always about ominous, faceless soldiers waiting in the dark," said the artist, whose dream paintings are on display at the University of Judaism and the ElevenSeven...

  • Pushing for the Jewish Vote

    By Mike Levy

    May 31, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    James Hahn and Antonio Villaraigosa have to secure every vote they can in order to win the mayoral election on June 5. The Jewish vote, which in recent years has played a significant role in supporting the victor, may very well be one of the factors to swing this race.

    But which way...

  • Hollywood Legend Turns 75

    By Julie G Fax

    May 31, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Like most legends in Hollywood, Temple Israel of Hollywood has undergone a few makeovers to stay fresh since it was founded in 1926. Maybe that's why even as it celebrates its 75th anniversary, the Reform synagogue is even more bustling than it was in its heyday when it was billed as...
