  • At L.A. Jewish Journal, president and publisher face off on Iran deal — and stay friendly

    2 weeks ago

    Open up the pages of the Los Angeles Jewish Journal these days, and you’re likely to find vigorous debate about the Iran deal.

    And that’s just between the newspaper’s president, David Suissa, and its publisher and editor-in-chief, Rob Eshman.

    The two have been going...

  • Answering Rob Eshman’s questions on the Iran Deal

    2 weeks ago

    I am flattered that Rob Eshman would devote an entire column to my analysis on the Iran nuclear agreement.  Given all the wise men and women who opine on this topic, to attract such attention is quite a compliment. 

    I say this even if Rob’s praise is half-hearted. For example, a...

  • Letters to the editor: The evil you know, racial disparities and more

    3 weeks ago

    The Evil You Know …

    I support the views of Rep. Adam Schiff and Rob Eshman that the present deal may be better than no deal (“What If There’s No Deal?” Aug. 7). America, in 1945, taught the world a bitter lesson in atomic warfare, explained in two words: Hiroshima and Nagasaki....

  • Letters to the editor: The Federation takes on Iran, Running Springs returns and more

    August 5, 2015 | 11:49 am

    Did Federation Toe the Line or Overstep?

    Thank you for Rob Eshman’s thoughtful, reasoned piece regarding Federation’s position on the Iran deal (“Federation: Take It Back,” July 31). Regardless of one’s personal view on the issue, I was stunned that Federation took a position,...

  • Letters to the editor: Iran Deal, David Azouly, swastikas in D.C. and more

    July 27, 2015 | 8:55 am

    Not a Gamblin’ Man

    I disagree with Rob Eshman’s opening paragraph, wherein he states that “nobody knows” what the end result will be with the Iranian deal (“The Iran Deal Gamble,” July 17). Anyone who considers the current atmosphere with Iran, and the basic points of the...

  • Panel: In Israel, will the future be hope or fear?

    July 9, 2015 | 2:56 pm

    A post-Israeli election panel on the future of Israel. Featuring Rob Eshman, David Suissa and Shmuel Rosner. Moderated by Susan Freudenheim.

  • Letters to the editor: Questions for Michael Oren, redefining anti-Semitism and more

    July 1, 2015 | 11:11 am

    Three Answers for Rob Eshman

    Rob Eshman notices the absence of Benjamin Netanyahu in Michael Oren’s book (“One Question for Michael Oren,” June 26). He is guilty of perhaps a greater omission, leaving out the abject failures connected to the “leading the way” of both Yitzhak...

  • Letters to the editor: Berlin spas and Tikkun Olam

    June 24, 2015 | 9:48 am

    Bare Necessities?

    Sitting in shul on Shabbos at Chabad of Westlake, do we really need to read about Rob Eshman’s naked exploits (still not sure what the point of that undignified article was) and a glorified Pride parade in Tel Aviv (a half-page article, no less)? 

    There’s the...

  • Me, naked at a Berlin spa

    By Rob Eshman

    June 19, 2015 | 8:11 am

    When I was in Berlin last year, I decided to go to a spa.

    My entire life, I’d read how famous Europeans “took the waters” to restore their health and psyches. Kafka recuperated at Marienbad, Goethe at Franzensbad, Dickens at Harrogate. Herzl summered at Altaussee, as did many...

    Drop the Equivocation

    Rob Eshman (“Sheldon: Improve Israel’s Odds,” June 12), Obama, J Street, New Israel Fund, Peace Now and other Israel critics who pretend to support Israel, would be listened to, and possibly believed more, if they would only at least once support Israel...

  • Letters to the editor: Sanders, Soros and more

    June 10, 2015 | 9:11 am

    Soros as a Source?

    Kudos to the Journal for the cover story “The World’s ‘Least Wanted’ People” (June 5). We, as Jews, to use the oft-stated cliché, have “been there and done that,” so it is fitting to read of the plight of Myanmar’s Muslims in the pages of the Jewish Journal....

  • Thanks for what?

    June 3, 2015 | 11:43 am

    Rob Eshman, the Jewish Journal’s Editor-in-chief, would like to thank President Obama on behalf of the Jewish people. I do not want to be ingrate but an examination of the historical record leads me to a completely opposite conclusion. Starting at the beginning of the Obama...

  • Letters to the editor: Jews in Turkey and Zionophobia on campus

    March 25, 2015 | 10:39 am

    Playing Telephone in Turkey Misses the Point

    Sorting out the entire history of Turkish-Jewish relations spanning more than five centuries via editorials and interviews is ineffective, unrealistic and unfair (“At a Breaking Point in Turkey,” March 20).  Lost in such...

  • Letters to the editor: All about Bibi

    March 11, 2015 | 9:43 am

    So, About That Speech …

    Rob Eshman is a writer without any credibility (“Bibi, You’re No Moses,” March 6). It’s Jews like him who make our enemies stronger. He should be fired and banished.

    Barry Schreiber, Los Angeles  

    Eshman provided nothing to suggest that: (a) Iran is...

  • Prophets and mensches; Remembering Rabbi Schulweis and Rabbi Beerman

    By Rob Eshman

    December 30, 2014 | 10:25 am

    I’ve only fallen in love with two rabbis in my life. One I married. The other was Harold Schulweis. 
     
    He had been ailing for months, so his death Dec. 18 at the age of 89 was not unexpected.
     
    So, too, the passing of Rabbi Leonard Beerman, who died Dec. 24 at 93.

    David Suissa owes my grandson an apology. 
     
    In his Dec. 18 story titled “Obama: I’m Jewish ‘In My Soul,’ ” Suissa recounted his experience attending the White House Chanukah party the night before. I am that “imposing and tall white-haired...

    Chipping Away Another Brick in the Wall

    Thank you so very much for the excellent description of the celebration (“Lessons From a Wall,” Nov. 14). I lived in Germany almost continuously from 1971, when I went as a U.S. soldier, until I returned to California in 2004. Nov. 9, 1989,...

  • Lessons from the Berlin Wall

    By Rob Eshman

    November 12, 2014 | 12:57 pm

    Last Saturday night in the posh section of Berlin, I took a hammer and chisel and pounded away at the Berlin Wall.

    I was staying at the Westin Grand Hotel for the festivities marking the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall. The hotel offers guests the chance to make their...

  • Foxman one on one: anti-Semitism, BDS and Mel Gibson

    By Rob Eshman

    October 29, 2014 | 11:49 am

    Over the past 20 years, I’ve accused Anti-Defamation League (ADL) chief Abraham H. Foxman of being an alarmist, an opportunist, even a hypocrite. 

    I mocked his outspoken campaign against Mel Gibson’s “The Passion,” saying it just helped boost the snuff film’s box office. I...

    Golden Years Shine at the Home

    My mother was one of the fortunate people who became a resident at the Joyce Eisenberg facility (“Molly Forrest Plans the Future,” Oct. 24). They provided her with outstanding care and attention, for which I will be forever grateful.

  • Building a stable sukkah, building a stable L.A.

    By Rob Eshman

    October 8, 2014 | 10:14 am

    Many years ago, my wife and I lived in a ground-floor apartment in the Ocean Park section of Santa Monica, on a hill with a view of the bay.

    When Sukkot came around, my wife naturally expected me to build the hut — the sukkah — in which Jews are commanded to eat, and even...

    Young Yisra’el?

    I recently read Rob Eshman’s article about the younger generation and their views of Israel in light of the summer’s violent events (“Young Americans and Israel,” Sept. 5). I applaud the Journal’s courage in presenting the fact that there is a range of views...

  • The High Holy Days: Something meaningful, or just going through the motions?

    By Rob Eshman

    September 23, 2014 | 3:12 pm

    Most of us who go to synagogue for the High Holy Days have no clue what’s going on.

    We don’t speak or read Hebrew well enough to understand the prayers or the Torah portion. We don’t know why we say the prayers in the order we say them. We don’t like the stilted English...

    Divided by a Common Goal

    In Rob Eshman’s interesting editorial piece “Young Americans and Israel” (Sept. 5), he writes, “The people in charge of Gaza aren’t exactly Quakers.” This is true, but readers may be surprised to learn that many Palestinian leaders have been trained in a...

    A War at Home

    Having just read “Drive-by Hate” (Aug. 29), as a Protestant of Italian descent, it occurred to me that everyone should read this, then close their eyes and imagine the scene, the Gold family happily enjoying Shabbat and their time together, when this happened). Try...

    ISIS Atrocities 

    Rob Eshman is to be commended for discussing one of the most disturbing and savage events currently on the planet — the barbaric slaughter of Christians Kurds and Yazidis in Iraq by Islamic Nazis: ISIS (“When Christians Die,” Aug. 15). Several points, though,...

    Protesters of Violence Can’t Be Protectors of Hamas 

    I would like to comment on Rob Eshman’s recent editorial in the Jewish Journal “Peaceniks for Murder” (Aug. 8). For the sake of openness, I do not read the Journal; I had ordered a pizza from a kosher restaurant and picked up...

    United Under Fire

  • Why we write

    By Rob Eshman

    March 5, 2014 | 10:45 am

    On Monday, I gave a talk to visiting young Israelis on a subject near and dear to my heart: Just what is the Jewish Journal?

    These Israelis were next-generation leaders, here in Los Angeles as part of the KOLOT program, which exposes secular Israelis to Jewish tradition,...
