  • Ladino “Flor” Show

    By Michael Aushenker

    September 12, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Singer Vanessa Paloma loves to perform Ladino songs. "The stories are so amazing," said Paloma, 33. "They're like little tidbits of a society that has been spread around the whole world."

    Prior to the 15th century, the Spanish word Ladino translated as "the other," as in cultural...

  • Shhhh ... I’m Praying

    Am I the only one who goes to Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services to listen and participate?

    Probably not. But why do I feel that way sometimes?

    I realize it would be hypocritical to say I sit (and stand and sit and stand) through all those hours of psalms, songs, sermons and...

  • What’s in a Name?

    By Michael Aushenker

    Eric, Matt and Chris are three musicians who refuse to give away their last names. But if you guessed it was out of a lack of ethnic pride, you'd be wrong.

    "I'm a pretty high-profile Jew, whether I like it or not," says singer-songwriter Eric. "It's hard to hide when you're in a...

  • Spring Is Here

    By Abby Gilad

    March 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    On this Shabbat, hol ha'moed Pesach, we read a beautiful story called "The Song of Songs." It is attributed to King Solomon, and the rabbis interpret the love story that takes place between the girl and the boy in the poem as Solomon's love for God and of God's love for the Jewish people.

    The story/poem takes place in the spring, when flowers are blossoming, fruits are ripening and the sweet fragrance of jasmine is everywhere. Pesach is a time of new beginnings, and so is spring. The world is being reborn.

  • Bittersweet Music

    By George Robinson

    March 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Despite its air of celebration, Passover is a bittersweet remembrance, one in which the joy of liberation is marked by the pain of recollection of what we were liberated from and what we lost on the way from Egypt to Eretz Yisrael. Our seder liturgy reflects that ambivalence,...

  • CDs to Light Up Eight Nights

    By Paul Wieder

    December 13, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    They are round, shiny and popular. But CDs don't melt like chocolate coins -- and they have fewer calories. To give the gelt without the guilt, try the gift of music.

  • Passover Events

    By Rita Berman Frischer

    April 6, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    A 1998 article about Chicago collector Stephen Durschslag's haggadah collection set the number of different haggadot on his shelves at 4,500, increasing almost daily.

    It's probably impossible to know how many haggadot exist, but it's obvious that for every Jew, there should be a...
