    January 22, 2013 | 8:36 am

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    November 6, 2012 | 1:11 pm

    Polling places often move around from year to year, but normally not on Election Day itself, as happened to the polls at Sinai Temple this year.

  • So, who are you voting for?

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    November 1, 2012 | 3:16 pm

    For Miriam, an outspoken woman in her 80s who wouldn’t give her last name, there isn’t the slightest possibility she will vote against President Barack Obama on Election Day. 

    “Maybe we all don’t have to worry about becoming pregnant, obviously,” Miriam said, addressing the five...

    October 22, 2012 | 2:01 pm

  • Conventional Wisdom

    By Elliot Steingart

    August 29, 2012 | 11:23 am

    It’s good to hear opposing viewpoints. It’s part of the reason I’m in a relationship. My girlfriend told me the name of the Hebrew God is Yahweh. I’ve been Jewish for 27 years and I’ve never heard of Yahweh. It’s worth listening to the other side even if the other side believes in...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    July 5, 2012 | 2:52 pm

    Here is a truism we all already know: Jews are news. The fact is, no matter how tiny the American Jewish community might be — between 1.5 and 2 percent of the population — the battle for Jewish votes will be extensively reported and analyzed.

    Over the last several decades,...

    May 6, 2012 | 12:14 pm

    By Bill Boyarsky

    March 1, 2012 | 12:37 pm

    Always interested in the gritty and unpredictable side of participatory politics, I dropped in on Reps. Howard Berman and Brad Sherman, both of whom are vying to represent the newly reconfigured 30th congressional district, as they each hosted community meetings at San Fernando...

    By Danielle Berrin

    February 16, 2012 | 2:31 pm

    Woody Allen couldn’t care less about the Academy Awards. The 23-time nominee, mostly in the directing and writing categories, notoriously disapproves of the contest between creative works, eschews the ceremony and usually learns of its results from the following day’s New York...

    By Lauren Bottner

    August 17, 2011 | 9:18 pm

    Who knew a makeup-clad rock star could predict political outcomes?

    Apparently Gene Simmons, a.k.a Chaim Witz, possesses magical predictive powers. The KISS frontman is promulgating his prediction for the 2012 presidential race by proclaiming Texas Governor Rick Perry will get his...

  • Proposed circumcision ban not merely a parochial concern

    June 23, 2011 | 3:23 pm

    Circumcision, or “brit milah,” has long been the stuff of cheap jokes and comedy. But in recent weeks, what used to be nothing more than harmless fare has taken on a much more serious tone. So-called “intactivists” on the fringe left of American politics have pushed the radical...

  • Oh Sarah Palin, what nonsense fell out of your mouth now…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 7, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Before I start, I’d just like to acknowledge that apparently, or should I say allegedly Sarah Palin’s knowledge of American history came from her misguided ten-year-old daughter.  That or she was raised by wolves in the forest.  That is the only explanation that I could find to her...

  • Jews’ view of the pot initiative? Mixed

    October 27, 2010 | 12:05 pm

    Marijuana is everywhere. Smokers come from every walk of life — from the college student to the cancer patient, from the wealthy older couple to the heroin addict who started out just smoking weed.

    Jews care about this issue because Jews, like every other group, can be found...

  • The debates won’t matter

    By Marty Kaplan

    September 29, 2008 | 1:01 am

    Let me hedge my bet.

    At the vice presidential debate, the talking points Sarah Palin's handlers have been stuffing her head with will come out of her mouth so butchered that even Republican voters will say, like Kurtz in "Heart of Darkness": "The horror, the horror!"

    Or, at one of...

    By Marc Ballon

    August 25, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Jewish groups are expressing anger that government officials, including Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, have scheduled a special election in Orange County to fall on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, one of the holiest days of the year for Jews.

    By Bill Boyarsky

    April 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    As Antonio Villaraigosa campaigns for mayor in the Jewish community, he will face the same big question asked by all non-Latino voters: Are you too Mexican?

    By Marc Ballon

    November 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Surrounded by a crowd of 250 Jewish Republicans partying at Beverly Hills' Level One club, a...
