  • Mainstreaming Makes a Difference

    By Sharon Schatz Rosenthal

    July 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Eight-year-old Tamar's fingers dance across a set of harp strings like small waves rhythmically pounding the surf. While the large instrument dwarfs her, she doesn't seem to mind as she sits and plays a complicated classical tune. After the musical interlude, she hops onto her living...

    By Mike Levy

    June 20, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The broncs and the bulls are coming to Anaheim. Not the NFL or NBA variety, though -- real bucking broncs and angry bulls, with real cowboys holding on for dear life. The rodeo is coming to town.

    The Justin Boots Bucking Thunder tour, in its first year after a debut event last...

  • A Jewish Olympian Reflects

    September 28, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    As an athlete training with a single-minded focus of becoming the best I could possibly be, I think I sometimes lost sight of the big picture. I had no idea of the impact that our gold-medal victory in the 1984 Games would have on not only my life, but on the lives of others as well....

  • Olympic Moments

    By George Eisen

    September 14, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    That Jews have been prominent in the history of ancient and modern sport, and specifically the Olympic Games, should not come as a surprise. We tend to forget that one of the sparks that ignited the Maccabbees' revolt was - as the Jewish historian Josephus Flavius recorded some 2,000...

    June 29, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Maybe it's a stereotype, but Jewish people have always been considered smart. Not just by others but by themselves, too. We pride ourselves on making education a priority for our children. We encourage them to study, to go for the extra credit, and we imbue them with the value of...

  • A Sports Complex as “Civic Presence”

    By Kerri Zerlin

  • Glorifying DiMaggio, but Not His Times

    By Yehuda Lev

    March 11, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    By the time you read these words, the death of Joe DiMaggio will be old news. I grew up in a New York City in which he was the greatest of our sports heroes, and I was blessed as a child with an Uncle Ike who took me to the bleachers in Yankee Stadium. My love for baseball and...

    By John R. Fishel

    November 12, 1998 | 7:00 pm

    There are more than 30,000 Jewish teen-agers in Los Angeles -- how do we engage them?
