Remembering Doron

By Danielle Berrin

Most people will remember Doron Mahareta (bottom right) as one of the eight Yeshiva students killed in a bloody massacre at Mercaz HaRav in Jerusalem on March 6, 2008.

His voice and his... read on

  • Weekend disturbance

    It was supposed to be a secular night. A Hollywood premiere and drinks at the Chateau Marmont felt safely removed from Jewish purview, and I even felt relief at not having to ‘talk Jewish’ for an evening.

    But Hollywood, as we’ve heard stigmatized many times, teems with Jews, so it’s... read on

  • Being single at Sinai Temple

    Every nice Jewish gal wants to find her dream guy; but what happens when his mother gets in the way?

    Here’s my spin in “Attack of The Mothers”:

    I know how to handle men, but their mothers? An entirely different challenge. Until I moved to Los Angeles, I had never been “hit on” by women. Now women twice, thrice, even four times my age (I call them mothers-on-the-prowl) approach me nearly every Shabbat. Sometimes, they attack in the middle of the Amidah…

  • Hello, Shalom

    I had no desire to see Shalom Hanoch in concert. I had never even heard of the guy.

    But my co-worker, an Israeli ex-pat who was a young woman during Hanoch’s heydey, insisted that I come with her to his Saturday night, March 8 concert at the Avalon in Hollywood. She wanted to... read on

  • The pro-Israel pastor

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 12, 2008 | 1:28 pm

    After all the press, controversial pastor John Hagee, as notorious for his incendiary remarks as for his Israel support, was quite boring.

    The most scintillating aspect of Stephen S. Wise Temple’s “Forum on Critical Values” dialogue between Rabbi David Woznica and Pastor Hagee last... read on

  • Nazi-suppressed operas are so L.A.

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 10, 2008 | 3:26 pm

    L.A. Opera is one of a kind.

    It may lack the fanciful flair of opera-goers in New York or San Francisco, with their lavish attire and high-culture gabbing at the mini-bar, because, save for a handful of ladies anachronistically bedecked in fur, Angelenos prefer a more casual fashion... read on

  • Gordis ashamed at state of Zionism

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 7, 2008 | 11:14 am

    In 1998, Rabbi Daniel Gordis kissed a shiny life in Los Angeles goodbye. He took his wife and two children on a one-way El-Al flight to Israel and has become a fixture there ever since.

    The founding dean of American Jewish University’s (then, University of Judaism) Ziegler... read on

  • Obama to Sderot: “we will work together”

    From the “Live For Sderot” concert on Tuesday night, Feb. 26, here is the recorded message from Barack Obama. Strangely enough, it is the only one of the three that is posted on YouTube for everyone to see. Come on, Hillary and McCain: get with the program! If you want to reach the youth vote, you need to have a presence online, which means regular postings to YouTube.
