  • Recall Golus

    By Gaby Wenig

    September 18, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    As recall fever is sweeping the state, a number of cars in the Pico-Robertson and Fairfax neighborhoods are sporting bumper stickers that say "Recall Golus." Who is Golus exactly, you ask? Is it Gray Davis' middle name? The name of the 136th candidate on the ballot?

    The stickers,...

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    By Rob Eshman

    May 22, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    This is the opposite of hypnosis. I am going to write a word, and you are not going to fall asleep. The word is, Sacramento.

    For most of us, state politics function as a kind of conversational snooze button. It's hard enough to get people involved in the police and pothole issues of...

  • U.S. Spending Ignores Domestic Deficits

    By Leonard Fein

    May 15, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Write the word "fiscal" and know that a hefty proportion of your readers will find something else to read. So, let's talk about money instead.

    Specifically, about the money the states don't have.

    The only thing you need to know by way of background is that almost all states are...

  • Roadblock Arises to Subvert ‘Road Map’

    By Leonard Fein

    April 30, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    What can account for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's recent assault on the State Department? Gingrich, just eight years ago Time magazine's Man of the Year, these days largely reduced to self-promotion (Check his Web site at newt.org.), is a senior fellow at the American...

  • We Must Share Our Blessings With the Poor

    By Rabbi Alan Henkin

    April 17, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    As we began our seders this week, one of our first acts was yachatz. We held high a matzah and recited, "Ha Lachma Anya" (behold, the matzah, the bread of poverty, which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt.)

    The very flatness and blandness of the matzah remind us of the empty and...

    Gov. Gray Davis' proposed state budget for 2002-2003 has local Jewish organizations worried.

  • The Importance of Zinni

    By Michael W. Sonnefeldt

    November 29, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    One of the most significant elements in Secretary of State Colin Powell's speech of Nov. 19 was the appointment of Anthony Zinni, the much-decorated and admired retired Marine Corps four-star general, as his Mideast envoy.

    Zinni's last post was as head of CENTCOM, the command that...

    Palestinian Statehood

    It is hard to believe that thoughtful people in the Jewish community can still oppose a Palestinian state and think that moral, political and economic catastrophe can be avoided while Israel continues to occupy 1.5 million people ("The Dangers of a Palestinian...

    Orthodox Numbers

    As a sociologist of American Jews, I read the three articles ("Setting the Record Straight," "Flawed Methodology" and "Standing by the Data," Sept. 15) with great interest. Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, along with Anthony Gordon and Richard M. Horowitz, raised important...

  • Don’t Forget Israel’s Fallen

    By Yuval Rotem

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    During May, both the United States and Israel will mark their respective Memorial Days. While the American version will have many remembrance events, most people will spend the day at barbecues, picnics or at the beach. This is not the case in Israel.

    On the evening of May 8, as...

  • Tough Times for the Religious Right

    By James D

    March 18, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    It may be the worst of times for Christian right groups -- which could be good news for Jewish leaders.

    The Christian Coalition, once a surging force in state and national politics, is in disarray, and a leadership vacuum threatens the group's hard-won gains. In the 106th Congress,...
