  • Write your own dirge for Tisha B’Av 2008

    July 29, 2008 | 4:15 am

    Jewish tradition teaches that we are commanded to write a Torah in our lifetime, but not a kinah, or dirge. For ages, our prophets and rabbis have done this for us, filtering and distancing, putting our most painful group memories into acrostic, poetic form.

    Beginning with Eicha...

    March 22, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Animal sacrifices are rather messy, and most of us would have a hard time imagining ourselves offering them up upon a Temple altar.

    I'm probably not going too far out on a limb in suggesting that when we come to shul each year to begin the book of Vayikra, we feel quietly relieved...

    By Morris Newman

    It's 103 degrees in Hollywood, and I'm schvitzing. As I head up the stairs at my synagogue, Tony Guerrero and I exchange greetings.
     
    As usual, he's looking sharp: pressed slacks, a clean white button-down shirt, and today -- a tie and a kippah. "Tony," I ask incredulously, "how...

    By Rabbi Steven Z. Leder

    August 10, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Dear President Bush:

    I never preach or write about politics. I think it is inappropriate for the rabbi of a large congregation to do so.

    Firstly, I am a rabbi not a political scientist. I do not presume to know more about matters of state than my congregants. I know they can read...

    For 75-year-old Temple Beth Israel of Highland Park and Eagle Rock, it was the need to re-landscape that steered the synagogue in an ecological direction. The status quo was 8,000 square feet of unwatered, weed-ridden and rarely mowed grass, along with three palm trees, two citrus...
