    Zula is a delightful beachside restaurant where you can breathe in the salty air as Eyal Golan songs play in the background. It also advertises the best falafel in town, made with local garbanzo beans.

    Volume V: Jew vs. Wild

    One of the main reasons I moved to Los Angeles was for the weather.  Unfortunately, it took me a few months before I really started taking advantage of the climate and outdoor activities, like hiking, fishing, swimming, sailing, sunbathing, people watching, breathing, etc.  And of course, the common stereotype exists that Jews and the wilderness are not a match made in heaven.  But I traveled deep into the wild (Santa Monica pier and the Hollywood Hills) to prove that in the battle between Jews and the wild…Jews win.

    There is a remarkable place I go to, about once a year. It is a spot on the Oregon coast. And I mean, literally, a spot. When I stand on that spot,
