  • Hidden Impact of Sweatshop Laws

    By Ruth Andrew Ellenson

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Is your image of a sweatshop a black-and- white photograph of Jewish garment workers marching for labor rights 100 years ago, or the Triangle Shirtwaist Company fire in 1911, in which hundreds of Jewish workers were trapped inside a burning building in New York (see sidebar)? If so,...

    "Triangle: The Fire That Changed America," by David Von Drehle (Atlantic Monthly Press, $26)

    Piece of the Pie

    Tom Tugend's article led me to fantasize that if I were a secular Jewish millionaire, what would I do to mitigate the present feverish global anti-Semitism ("Why Aren't Jews Giving to Jews?" June 27)? I certainly would not give a dime to organizations that are...

    By Fakhr Ahmad

    April 30, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Now that the war in Iraq is over, is it time for Pakistan to recognize Israel? This is a question that has intrigued many Pakistani intellectuals, journalists, politicians and even military strategists since 1950. The answer, now, should be a whopping yes!

    The recognition will be a...

  • Holocaust Exploited

    By Joe Berkofsky

    March 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    An emaciated death camp survivor stares blankly alongside a gaunt steer. "During the seven years between 1938 and 1945, 12 million people perished in the Holocaust," the image declares. "The same number of animals is killed every 4 hours for food in the U.S. alone."

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Turkey, potatoes and gravy, candied yams -- all the foods you love to pile on your plate come Thanksgiving. But you might want to check your blood sugar before you take another helping of mashed potatoes, because if you are one of the many American Jews at risk for diabetes, that...

    "American Pie" star Shannon Elizabeth may appear to have perfect skin. But Michelle Ornstein knows that everyone, even stars, have bad skin days. And when they do, they turn to this Israeli-born spa owner for help.

  • On My Mind

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    January 31, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The hardest part about writing about brain radiation is writing the words "brain radiation." I assure you that I'm OK. It's my fingers that are typing these words on my computer. It's my thoughts that are deciding which of the Yip Harburg lyrics from the Scarecrow's song, "If I Only...

  • Ready for Battle

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    November 15, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Bad news on the cancer front. My CT scans, which had been 99 percent tumor-free for almost six months, show a few tiny lesions. A few tiny lesions in non-small-cell lung cancer is not a good thing. My oncologist nearly cried.

    What I would give not to have to write about this. I hate...

  • The Strongest Link

    July 19, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    No matter how well things go in chemotherapy, the truth is, cancer always makes new demands on you. You can't afford to be a k'nocker, pretending you know what you're doing or what you're ready for. It's not as if you are in charge.

    On the morning of my final course of treatment, I...

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 21, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    You'd have no trouble finding me in the treatment area of Cedars-Sinai Cancer Center. Even from a distance, mine is the little roomlet that rings with soft laughter and the sound of -- well, yes -- a party going on.

    How dare I have fun during chemotherapy? It's not that I look...

  • Uniting to Fight Prostate Cancer

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Bob Dole. General Norman Schwarzkopf. Harry Belafonte. Robert Goulet. The willingness of such well-known figures to make public their battle with prostate cancer has brought visibility to an issue that until the last few years, lacked the attention, funding and research interest...

    It is a bright, sunny day at Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services. In her office, medical director Dr. Susan Schmidt-Lackner is sitting on the floor with one of her young patients -- not an easy feat for a tall woman in a long skirt, but the doctor is more interested in the...
