  • Bristol Palin, Rielle Hunter & Anderson Cooper

    By Ilana Angel

    July 5, 2012 | 9:03 pm

    I am amazed that these three people have all made the news recently. Bristol Palin’s reality show started airing, Rielle Hunter’s memoir of her life as a home wrecking whore was published, and Anderson Cooper made headlines for coming out.  Really?  Bristol is not worthy of a...

  • Israeli Gay Pride

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    June 14, 2012 | 3:16 pm

    June 28th, 1969. Greenwich Village, NYC. It started like any other night back then- a police raid on a gay bar. The Stonewall Inn was the daily victim. Only that night, unlike any other night before, was about to mark Gay pride for decades to come.  This was the first time the LGBT...

  • A yearly reminder of the reason we are here

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    April 20, 2012 | 11:49 am

    The story of Israel is often being described here with the sentence: From Holocaust to revival (free translation from Hebrew).


    In the 1940’s, the Jews, who were scattered all over the world, faced destruction by an evil monster with a twisted mind and great charisma. Being...

  • Out and About for L.A. Pride

    By Adam Wills

    June 10, 2011 | 1:46 pm

    There’s no rain in the forecast, but you can expect to see rainbows this weekend—lots of them—in West Hollywood. The 41st annual L.A. Pride kicks off tonight, and a few local synagogues are holding special Pride Shabbat services.

    Organized by Christopher Street West, L.A. Pride...

  • Listen, will you?

    By Rabbi Haim Ovadia

    December 3, 2008 | 9:29 pm

    You are driving, looking for an address, when your wife tells you to ask someone. You refuse, but you finally make it to your destination -- two hours late. Are you familiar with this scenario?

    When it happened to me, we were going to our first Shabbaton in Pennsylvania, got lost...

  • Flag Day

    By Rob Eshman

    September 17, 2008 | 11:22 pm

    What a weird week.

    The presidential race, instead of focusing on the best energy policy, the best Mideast policy, the best health care policy, was all about moose and pigs and pitbulls. The financial companies that once defined stability have teetered or collapsed. The stock...

  • One more time with nachas —gift that keeps on giving

    September 11, 2008 | 4:17 am

    Our boys have surprised us by some of the choices they have made, and while we might not have made the same choices for them, we are proud of their growing commitment to living wholly, and holy, Jewish lives.

    Anyone who has planned a bar mitzvah can easily recall the stress of...

  • When ‘pride’ doesn’t cut it

    June 5, 2008 | 2:33 pm

    Growing up an observant Jew in the small city of Palm Springs with a Jewish minority was sometimes difficult, but I have always been proud of my Jewish heritage, of who I was and of what I believe. I have never thought once of questioning my Jewish identity -- it is merely a part of...
  • Time warp again? Take a step toward tradition

    By Judy Gruen

    January 11, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    When I think back to my bat mitzvah 30-plus years ago, here's what I remember most: following the photographer's prompts as I posed against the tree in the synagogue courtyard, standing nervously on the bimah chanting my Torah portion, and giving a speech in which I excoriated...
  • NCJF: A treasury of Jewish cinema

    By Tom Tugend

    January 11, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Sharon Pucker Rivo recently dropped by my home to talk about the National Center for Jewish Film (NCJF) and left behind a catalog of the center's holdings.

    It's rare that a catalog makes for spellbinding reading, but I discovered in it a new and fascinating picture of pulsating...

  • A Mother’s Pride

    By Susan Freudenheim

    July 13, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A few weeks ago as the school year ended, my daughter stood on the bimah in the chapel of our synagogue and, with four of her fellow fifth-graders, led her Jewish day school's Monday Tefillah services. Four girls and a boy shared the honor, and their radically varying sizes bespoke...

  • Saul Kroll: Healing Hand at Cedars-Sinai

    By Tom Tugend

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

     

    "Our rabbis speak of yetzer hara and yetzer hatov, man's dual inclination toward evil and toward good, and what you make of your life depends on which you follow," Saul Kroll observes.

    Kroll is a firm believer in yetzer hatov, and the 87-year-old Westside resident...

  • Jack and Judaism

    By Kathleen Vallee Stein

    November 17, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Jack Stein taught me about being Jewish.

    First, he told me that Jewish husbands are the best husbands because

    they "only cheat a little." Jack grinned up at me and I smiled back. At 5-feet-8 inches tall, I am used to being taller than many men, but when I put my arm around my...

  • Maccabiah Games Bring Golden Times

    By Roxana Pourshalimi

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When amateur soccer player Michael Erush went to Israel in July to play for Team USA in the 17th World Maccabiah Games, he was hoping to come home with gold. But following the Israeli team's victory, Erush was content with the American silver-medal win.

    "I always want to do the...

  • The Good, the Bad and the Confusing

    By Ed Shevick

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I am a senior citizen. I'm 82, look 65 and feel like 40. It is a very confusing time of life. People assume that you are over the hill. You know that you are still vital and have the ability to contribute to society.

    At the age of 50, I classified myself as lower-middle age. As the...

  • Summertime and the Livin’ Is Costly

    By David Finnigan

    May 27, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Day schools are fine for school days. Synagogue is great for Shabbat and High Holidays. But for those weeks when children are in cabins, singing and laughing with friends, Jewish camp is a singular experience of 24/7, full-tilt boogie Judaism.

    "Although I attended religious school,...

  • Vanity Body Plates

    By Lori Gottlieb

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    A few weeks ago, I was shopping at the Beverly Center when a girl who was maybe 12 years old held up a garment and yelled across the store, "Hey, Mom, what about this?"

    "This" was a skimpy red T-shirt with the words "porn star" emblazoned across the chest. I was shocked by the...

  • The Soul of Maui

    By Rob Eshman

    November 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    There's a Hawaiian legend about a pregnant woman who developed a craving for the eyeballs of royalty. Advisers to the king took this to mean that the woman's child would one day grow up to defeat the king and rule all the islands. The king decreed that the baby be killed as soon as...

  • Why Not Lieberman?

    By Paul Kujawsky

    March 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    What a difference two and a half years make. When Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore selected Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman as his running mate in 2000, there was a surge of Jewish pride and support. Now that Lieberman has announced his own candidacy in the 2004 presidential...

  • Koufax Benches Dodgers

    By Tom Tugend

    February 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Jewish pride across the baseball world swelled back in 1965, when the legendary Sandy Koufax decided to observe Yom Kippur rather than pitch for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the World Series against the Minnesota Twins.

    But the Hall of Fame pitcher proved unforgiving...

  • The Mideast Comes to L.A.

    By Gene Lichtenstein

    April 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I suppose there has always been a division between Jews who are affiliated and those who are not. Two separate worlds. The first wears the definition with pride: The Jewish Community. The second by default or distrust or indifference, or maybe choice, seems to be cast adrift, at...

  • Kids Page

    By Abby Gilad

    November 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Jacob sends his family over the Yabbok river to meet up with his brother Esau. He remains alone for the night, and is confronted by an angel. He wrestles with the angel all night long. At dawn, the angel congratulates Jacob for his strength and persistence, and changes Jacob's name...

  • A Time for Unity, a Time for Leadership

    By Herbert M

    August 14, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    When my grandson stands at the Kotel...I will remind him that whatever divides us...it will be my generation's responsibility to guarantee that he gets the tools for Jewish survival, and it will be his generation's responsibility to determine how those tools are used

    We are rapidly...
