    Bagels, Broza and Brentwood. Enchiladas, Enrique and East L.A. On the surface, the Jewish and Latino communities of Los Angeles don't seem to have much in common. But scratch the surface of the relationship and you will find a common set of values that activists from both communities...

  • Tangier’s Casualty

    By Mike Seid

    May 16, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    In these past 19 months, I have sadly watched my faith in the effectiveness of liberal humanist values falter. They have not provided me an adequate framework to deal with the latest intifada, Sept. 11 and, above all, my year teaching in Morocco.

    Most of my background -- childhood...

  • Slippery Slope

    By Rob Eshman

    The all-new, completely updated "Joys of Yiddish" (Crown, 2001) by Leo Rosten will be released soon, and thumbing through an advance copy yesterday I couldn't stop smiling at the language's ability to capture an action, an emotion and a worldview -- all in one word.

    Glitch, Rosten...

  • Raising Children

    By Rabbi Shawn Fields-Meyer

    February 1, 2001 | 6:59 pm

    What's the Jewish way to raise children? Simple: just teach them Torah, model your values and encourage them to be like their ancestors. Right?



    Right and wrong. True, as Jews we are all about education. But what kind of education? What kind of children are we aiming to raise? And...

    Collaboration with al-Mayarati Shameful

    Salam al-Mayarati certainly can't be trusted. At best, he is not a friend of the Jewish community, let alone of Israel ("Caught in the Crossfire," June 30).
    The fact that leftist-liberal Democratic politician Adam Schiff chose to associate...

  • Grand Illusion

    By Ruth E. Gruber

    March 2, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Joerg Haider's unexpected resignation as head of Austria's far-right Freedom Party is widely seen as a strategic ploy that may ultimately win him more political power -- including the nation's leadership.

    "It is important not to overestimate" the move, Marta Halpert, director of the...

  • Balancing Acts

    December 2, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Dealing with the holiday season is no easy task for a modern Jewish family. Tinsel, bright lights and department store Santas seem to leap out from every corner (certainly from every corner mall). Reinforcing the joy, and the values, of Chanukah can be a challenge to a committed...
  • School’s Out—Forever?

    By Beverly Gray

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    At a time when many Jewish day schools in the area are bursting at the seams and new ones move closer to opening their doors, Temple Isaiah Day School is making plans to go out of business.

    The formal decision about the fate of the school has just been handed down by the Reform...

    May 22, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    We don't know who discovered water," Einstein said. But we do know one thing: "It wasn't a fish!" Why not a fish? Because a fish -- born into water, living, eating, breathing water -- is never sufficiently separated from water to become aware of its presence. The unnoticed condition...
