  • My Date with Humility

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    March 30, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Here we are, weeks away from the first night of Passover, and I am already suffering PMS, Pre-Matzah Syndrome. Cranky, sullen, bloated, sweaty and dull. What gives?

    The Passover seder is a spectacle made for children. The lamb bone, parsley and egg, the wine spilled on the paper...

  • How to account for the different stories

    September 23, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    I read Gary Rosenblatt's indictment of Los Angeles' rabbinate with some unease. It did not square with my understanding of what had occurred in the aftermath of the shootings at the North Valley Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills. Accounts from our reporter, Julie Gruenbaum...
  • The Value of the Temporary

    By Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky

    September 16, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    So have you heard the one about the two rabbis on a boat? It's actually a story told by the Talmud in its discussion of the laws of the sukkah. It seems that Rabbi Akiva and Rabbi Gamliel were on a boat during the days leading up to the holiday of Sukkot, and it became clear that...
  • Late Night with Jenny Lerner

    By Charlotte Hildebrand

    August 5, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    I promised I'd call her the next evening, but I never did. For five days, I felt guilty, but what could I do? To make the commitment to call Jenny Lerner is like signing on to a weekend of aerobics; you really want it -- the challenge, the learning opportunities -- but when the time...

  • Ticket to Enlightenment

    By Teresa Strasser

    July 29, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Ever since I moved to Los Angeles, I've been completely lost.

    No, I don't mean spiritually or emotionally. I mean literally. I've been lost for pretty much two straight years.

    What is the Thomas Guide to me but the Book of Babel? I have a hard enough time just knowing where I am in...

  • Literary Lives

    By Diane Arieff

    May 27, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    A play with both wit and heart is a compelling combination, and it's one that playwright Donald Margulies' pulls off in his mostly rewarding "Collected Stories."

    "Stories" drew critical praise and a 1997 Pulitzer Prize nomination following it's world première at Costa Mesa's South...

  • Art is long, and life is brief; at least that’s what they say.

    December 10, 1998 | 7:00 pm

    The museum world in Los Angeles looks as though it is in for a significant challenge.

    The evidence underscoring this was suggested last week in a story reported in The New York Times. On the surface, the story read like an account of the Getty Center one year after the new building...

  • Other Voices

    By Sandor Slomovits

    June 18, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    My father has always revered Joe Louis. Asurprising hero, perhaps, for a man born and raised in far-awayHungary. Not the hero one might expect of a Jewish cantor, whose workall his life has been singing liturgy in synagogues. Yet, among themost vivid memories I have from my childhood...

  • Seder Ceremonies

    June 18, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    When the Weber family invites the Wolfson familyfor seder, we are asked to prepare a presentation on some aspect ofthe seder ceremony. The presentation could be a d'rash , an explanation of whatthe Haggadah is trying to say. But, over the years, our presentationshave also been given...

    When the editors of The Jewish Journal, along withpublisher Stanley Hirsh, started planning an issue to commemorateIsrael's 50th anniversary, we were committed to something other thana "coffee-table" paper. We wanted it to be highly readable andentertaining, definitely, but also...

  • L.A. Stories

    August 14, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    I started reading Faye Kellerman's Peter Decker/Rina Lazarusmurder mysteries out of curiosity, after sampling from husbandJonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware series. I've stuck with Faye and,for the most part, haven't been disappointed. I have beenparticularly intrigued by LAPD Lt....

  • Concerned Christians

    By Shlomit Levy

    July 31, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Strains of somber organ music resonated in the large sanctuary as the eight Holocaust survivors told their stories. As each spoke about horrors endured, loved ones lost and, ultimately, faith reclaimed, the congregation punctuated their speeches with murmurs of "Thank You, Jesus."...

  • Read Me a Story

    By Diane Arieff

    July 31, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Sure, the children's shelves at bookstores are crowded with schlocky merchandising tie-ins and humorless "P.C." stories that groan under the weight of their own environmental and multi-culti lessons. But look a bit more carefully; you'll find the kinds of books that create those...
