    David Lehrer

    As a former colleague of David Lehrer, I am shocked and saddened by his firing by Abe Foxman ("Lehrer to Leave," Dec. 28). Lehrer's dedication to the protection of the Jewish community was always tantamount, and he was ever the consummate professional.

    However, I am...

    January 17, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The stork has been awfully busy lately.

    It seems as though everyone I know is having a baby. A couple I haven't heard from in months sent a postcard with a picture of what I thought was a Sharpei puppy -- it turns out the little boy's name is Jesse. I didn't even know they were...

    Driven by a personal desire for intellectual growth, Arie Katz set out last year to attract to Orange County the sort of eminent Jewish scholars that few synagogues can afford to woo on their own.

    With little more than his own chutzpah and considerable networking skills, the Newport...

    Iran has again surfaced on Israeli radar screens as a strategic threat to the Jewish state.

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    January 10, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    "Welcome home, Marlene. It's about time you joined my family," my father said.

    He was greeting the news that well into the age of wisdom, I've finally begun eating sardines.

    Dad eats sardines the way I once ate rugelah or eggplant parmigiana -- with gusto. It's a way of life for him....

    January 10, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Let the courts decide who gets custody of kids. What I want to know is, who gets custody of the coffee shop? The grocery store? The brunch place?

    It's been seven months since I broke up with Z, and I miss our old haunts, the places we used to go together, the places I relinquished...

  • God’s Covenant

    By Rabbi Michael Gotlieb

    January 10, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    From the Torah's beginning until its end, God is portrayed as being personally involved in the welfare of humanity. Deism is not a Jewish notion. God is not an "unmoved mover," the proverbial clockmaker who after assembling and winding his ware, steps back watching it tick down,...
