  • Where You Stand

    By Rabbi Allen I. Freehling

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    We are standing before God and God is standing before us -- especially during this particular time, when certain fundamental liberties are being denied individuals and when justice is being withheld from specific groups -- all in the name of "homeland security." This week's Torah...

  • Murky Borders

    By Rob Eshman

    July 31, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    For the great majority of Jews living in Los Angeles, anti-Semitism is a lot like clean air: We know it exists elsewhere, we just haven't encountered much of it ourselves.

    That inexperience is one reason why so many of us have a problem defining the border between anti-Zionism and...

  • Peace ‘Road Map’ Lurches Off-Track

    By Leslie Susser

    June 12, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    A week ago, the path to peace seemed bright following the formal launch of the "road map" peace plan at a summit in Aqaba, Jordan.

    One violent week later, many are wondering if the road map is already roadkill.

    Wednesday's bus bombing in downtown Jerusalem capped a gory week and...

  • Kosher Pig-Out

    By Michael Aushenker

    April 24, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Imagine if hitting the restaurants was a mitzvah. For one day, at least, it will be. Finally, the guilt-free excuse to overeat you've been looking for. On May 4, the Sunday before Yom HaAtzmaut (Israel Independence Day), Eat-4-Israel, a campaign created by yeshiva high schoolers,...

  • The Aftermath

    By Rob Eshman

    March 20, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    As I write these words, with our nation just over the brink of war, it is clear that once again the country is color-coded. Think back to the night of 2000 presidential election, when the network maps showed the states voting for Al Gore in blue and those for George W. Bush in red....

  • Far From ‘Divine’

    By Tom Tugend

    March 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    "Divine Intervention" by Israeli Arab filmmaker Elia Suleiman is going to delight some people, anger others and put still others to sleep.

    It has been embraced by European and most American critics as a brilliant absurdist comedy, recalling the style of French director...

  • U.S. Courts Israel to Not Join Iraq War

    By Leslie Susser

    December 26, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Never have Israel and the United States had such close operational coordination on Iraq. As the anticipated American attack on Baghdad draws nearer, the U.S. military has been showing Israeli officials its detailed plans for preventing Iraqi missile attacks on Israel. But the reason...

  • Kenya Attacks Blur Lines of Terrorism

    By Matthew E. Berger

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The attacks on Israeli targets in Kenya are not expected to divert the United States from a possible war with Iraq -- or change U.S. limits on Israel's response to Palestinian terror. One immediate effect of the Nov. 28 attacks, thought to be the work of Al Qaeda, may be a subtle...

  • Beth Sholom’s New Siddur

    By Journal Staff

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    For some, synagogue choreography is as mystifying as opera. To enjoy an opera, though, aficionados know to review the scenes in a libretto before the curtain rises. Yet the typical siddur prayerbook provides no such guidance. "The prayerbook, rather than help them, becomes an...

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    November 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Q: What's better than a piping hot Krispy Kreme doughnut?

    A: A piping hot kosher Krispy Kreme doughnut -- and just in time for Chanukah, which has a holiday tradition of eating fried foods like doughnuts.

  • How Ready Are We?

    By Mike Levy

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    "For bioterrorism, we're about as prepared as we are for snow," said City Councilman Jack Weiss, who has spent a year working with security experts and local officials to figure out what Los Angeles needs to do to prepare for and prevent terrorist attacks. The report of the results...

  • Get a CLUE to   Help the Poor

    By Mike Levy

    September 19, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    "It's not someone else's problem. It's our problem." The problem Devorah Shubowitz is talking about: poverty.

    Over the summer, Shubowitz worked with Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) to study the Jewish working poor in Los Angeles.

    Through CLUE, more than 400...

  • Israel Security Experts Advise L.A.

    By Mike Levy

    June 27, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The topic was terrorism. "How underprepared are we in the U.S.?"

    "Very."

    That exchange, between an emergency care physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Dr. Jonathan Halevy, director of Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, was part of an ongoing effort in Los...
