  • How chutzpah changed the world

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    March 16, 2012 | 11:28 am

    What does being an Israeli mean? For many years, people have tried to name this “thing” that we, Israelis, have. What is that “quality”? Lacking a scientific definition, people had to come up with a Hebrew name for it. There is not a word in the English vocabulary that has the same...

    By Julia Bendis

    May 3, 2011 | 11:28 am

    When I first heard about Amy Chua, the self-professed Chinese Tiger Mother, I didn’t understand what all the hype, the drama and the hatred was about.  After reading more about her and her parenting memoir “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”, I couldn’t help but like her even more!

  • The Slop Sink

    By Rob Eshman

    December 29, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    At the heart of the tenement kitchen was the slop sink, a metal basin maybe a foot shorter than a standard bathtub, but a few inches deeper. Here the woman of the house washed vegetables and clothes, and on occasion herself and her children. Before indoor plumbing, that water came...

    Oh God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"

    Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"

    God say, "No." Abe say, "What?"

    God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but

  • How Do We Pass on Our Jewishness?

    By Susannah Heschel

    March 4, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    All of us struggle with the problem of how to transmit our commitment to Judaism to the next generation. There are all sorts of suggestions -- but no solutions. How do we reproduce ourselves Jewishly?

    I have a passion for Jewishness, for every manifestation of it, from Workmen's...

    April 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    In case you haven't noticed -- but of course you have -- these are not the best of times. There are even those who assert they are the worst of times, but on the perfectly reasonable supposition that things can always get still worse, I won't go that far.

    You've also noticed that...

  • Jews Say Bonjour to Club Lampadaire

    By Gaby Wenig

    November 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    In between the prayers at the Pinto Shul in the Pico-Robertson area, people who only speak English might feel a little lost.

    Not because congregants there don't speak English -- they do, except they are likely to break off into French every so often, leaving behind the hapless...

    March 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Here's what I used to eat at Café Moment: a melted cheese toast sandwich with fresh basil and roasted red peppers on white focaccia, with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Nearly every Friday, on my day off, I'd crowd into the small cafe at the corner of Aza and Ben-Maimon...

  • Still Got ‘Game’

    By Michael Aushenker

    January 24, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Like Budd Schulberg's "What Makes Sammy Run?" Phillip Roth's "Portnoy's Complaint" and other milestones of Jewish American literature, Will Eisner's "Name of the Game" explores the depths of Jewish self-loathing and assimilation. But what separates "Name" -- a tale chronicling two...

    Let the courts decide who gets custody of kids. What I want to know is, who gets custody of the coffee shop? The grocery store? The brunch place?

    January 18, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    The Shivyon Minyan may be a 4-year-old prayer group of about 65 people that meets at a hotel once a month, but it has many of the assets that older, more established synagogues recognize are requirements for success: strong lay leaders and a grass-roots base of committed members,...

    September 9, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Counselors and staff of the Jewish Community Centers in Los Angeles were overwhelmed by the kindness and support of local clergy in the aftermath of the Aug. 10 shooting, which left five wounded. But they were surprised and disappointed by the fact that it was almost exclusively...

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 29, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    It was a Saturday night, and after watching the Lakers defeat the Warriors, I had no plans. I tossed out the encrusted remains of a Lean Cuisine lasagna and sat back in my sweats, surfing the channels in search of some juicy biography I hadn't seen before.

    It wasn't so much that I was...

    "The Last Night of Ballyhoo" arrived at the Cañon Theatre in Beverly Hills last month with impeccable credentials. The author, after all, is Alfred Uhry, whose "Driving Miss Daisy" deservedly swept the New York and Hollywood award boards.
