The Jewish National Fund in Costa Mesa will kick off a 30-day campaign Monday to jump-start a three-pronged program to increase water supplies for the people of Israel. The country is currently faced with its most severe drought since 1951. Funds raised will be used to build new reservoirs and flood dams for drinking water; recycle more waste water for agricultural irrigation; and conduct more research and development using brackish water to grow fish and vegetables, said Ronald S. Lauder, president of the fund.

Chuck DeVore The Daily Pilot's Sunday April 17 editorial, "Hate has no place in our fair cities," requires a response to correct the record. It is sadly true that anti-Semitism (or more specifically, hateful speech and acts against people of the Jewish faith) appears to be on the rise. It is therefore even more pressing that we understand the problem and not slip into misleading conclusions or falsehoods. As a faithful Christian, Republican and conservative who has been to Israel three times and was on the Orange County board of directors of the Jewish National Fund, I take the strongest exception to your editorial's linkage of conservative ideals with anti-Semitism.

Jeff Benson Hanukkah's Festival of Lights traditionally provides the Jewish community with increasing inspiration and warmth for eight days and nights each year. But it appears that warmth will unfortunately melt a 7-foot, 400-pound menorah ice sculpture in a single evening. The Jewish calendar dictates that Hanukkah begins on a different day each year -- and tonight's the night. To kick off Hanukkah, religious leaders from Chabad Jewish Center in Newport Beach will kindle the frozen menorah in a public ceremony at 5:30 p.m. The event will be held at Bloomingdale's Courtyard at Fashion Island.

By Rabbi Marc Gellman | January 18, 2013
Q: Upon retirement, my husband and I moved to the sunny South. We began attending services at his family's church. They're quite unlike what we're familiar with, in that the church is conservative and fundamentalist. We agreed to accept this in the interest of family harmony. However, we weren't prepared for the sermon delivered Dec. 23, 2012, just after the school shootings at Connecticut. First, we heard a brief eulogy for the 26 victims, followed by a 20-minute defense of gun owners and the NRA. While in shock, we looked around and saw that everyone else was nodding in agreement.
