  • Jewish Entertainment Network: Members of the Tribe only

    By Danielle Berrin

    October 17, 2012 | 5:18 pm

    If this were any other crowd, the speaker wouldn’t dare dish so freely about Steven Spielberg.

    But in the odd cabinlike setting at Morrie’s Fireplace, the private AISH outpost on Pico Boulevard, film director Brad Silberling is among — well, if not friends — fellow Jews. Which is...

  • Rack ‘em up

    November 18, 2011 | 4:04 pm

    A mural of shadowy black silhouettes covers the wall with just one splash of color: a solitary red man. As the jazz-era-style mural stretches along the length of the restaurant, it follows the red man as he meets a lone red woman, and they end up sharing a table ... and a drink. The...

  • The pawn king

    By Ayala Or-el

    November 18, 2011 | 3:20 pm

    A day in the life of pawnshop owner Yossi Dina looks something like this: A customer strolls in looking for a collar for his beloved dog, who is celebrating his fourth birthday. He finds a Gucci diamond-studded choker, pays $45,000 for it and leaves the store delighted at the great...

  • Chanukah: The musical

    By Ryan E. Smith

    November 18, 2011 | 1:20 pm

    There are many ways to tell the story of Chanukah. Tap dancing is not usually one of them.

    “I don’t know of any other congregation on the planet where both rabbis and their cantor are doing a tap number together,” said Cantor David Shukiar of Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand...

  • Old game, new spins

    November 17, 2011 | 2:44 pm

    When it comes to Chanukah, playing the dreidel game is as ubiquitous as lighting the candles on a chanukiyah and eating latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly-filled doughnuts).

    The dreidel, a four-sided spinning top, can be made of almost any material, including wood,...

    By Dikla Kadosh

    October 21, 2011 | 2:08 pm

    When Eli Tene, co-chair of the Israeli Leadership Council (ILC), first called to tell me about a new initiative they had cooked up, I knew it was something big. I could hear it in his voice.

  • The price for success: Bad PR

    By David Suissa

    October 21, 2011 | 2:05 pm

    “Never mind the collapse in confidence in Europe, the Palestinian proposal for United Nations recognition and heightened tensions with neighboring Egypt and longtime ally Turkey. The Israeli economy just keeps growing faster than the rest of the developed world.”

    Those were the...

  • JewCLA?

    October 21, 2011 | 1:56 pm

    I have a Jewish daughter in 12th grade, which means one thing: college applications. The fact that she is applying is a given; my husband and I have followed the long-standing Jewish tradition of brainwashing our children into believing that college is nothing more than grades 13...

  • Israeli summer: Hoping for change, calling for violence [WEB EXCLUSIVE]

    October 21, 2011 | 1:30 pm

    “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable,” John F. Kennedy wisely put forth in a 1962 speech. As I write this, the Occupy Wall Street movement is in full swing, and I can’t help but be reminded of my summer covering the social and...

  • On fire

    By Dikla Kadosh

    October 21, 2011 | 12:45 pm

    The old stereotype of Mizrahi music — an Israeli genre created by immigrant Jews from North African and Arab countries — was of teary, sorrowful love ballads: tales of lost loves, broken hearts and dashed hopes. You could say Mizrahi music was Israel’s version of country music....

    September 16, 2011 | 5:08 pm

    There are a lot of fun things about being Jewish: Adam Sandler, Purim, having an opinionated Jewish grandmother, Israel (most of the time), Chanukah. Although much can be said of the Jewish High Holy Days, I’m quite sure no one has ever described them as fun. Yet, for most of us,...
