  • Women rabbis at forefront of pioneering prayer communities

    1 week ago

    A decade ago in Los Angeles, two organizations opened their doors with a call to prayer — or they would have if they had any doors to open.

    Ikar, led by Rabbi Sharon Brous, and Nashuva, led by Rabbi Naomi Levy, were conceived separately. But when they launched in 2004, both...

  • Keeping the Faith with God

    By Ilana Angel

    October 5, 2014 | 4:48 pm

    I am a woman of faith and depending on different things going on in my life, I decide what the faith refers to. There have been times where I've been so connected to God I trust he is my faith. Yet other times I have been in such doubt about God that I place the strength of my...

  • Stuffed: Thanksgiving on Hope Street

    By Rob Eshman

    November 20, 2013 | 4:05 pm

    Last Sunday, my job was to make stuffing for 400 people. I said I’d do it because there’s a part of me that prefers to forget that it’s been 25 years since I was a caterer, and I assumed it would be as easy now as it was then.

    Every year for the past nine years, Nashuva, the...

    Every year some stalwart traditional Jews in LA observe the Yom Kippur custom of kapparot, and every year there are completely justifiable protests and public revulsion in response.

    Are You watching, God?

    Have You seen the innocent swept away?

    Be their strength and their comfort.

    Let them know You are near.

    Work through us, God.

    By Rabbi Naomi Levy

    April 17, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    In our Torah portion this Shabbat, Moses, who is closer to God than any other human being, pleads with God, "Show me Your presence."

    Why does Moses want this? He got to talk to God. He got to witness God's miracles in Egypt and at the Red Sea. When all the Israelites were assembled...

    By Rabbi Naomi Levy

    September 20, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    And now comes Yom Kippur. We watch in horror and pain as people search desperately for their loved ones. We mourn as body after body is removed from the rubble. Our hope for recovering survivors diminishes by the hour. Our eyes are full of tears, our hearts are full of pain, and our...

  • One Rabbi’s Book Tour

    By Rob Eshman

    November 4, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    I am watching my wife with Matt Lauer. She is on "The Today Show," sitting across from the handsome host, both of them locked on each other's eyes the way beautiful people lock eyes on, well, television.
