Among California Jewish leaders, there may be as many opinions about the current political crisis in Israel as there are political parties in that country's Parliament, the Knesset. "I can't imagine anyone being happy" about the fall of the Israeli government, said liberal Peace-Now activist Stanley Sheinbaum. "Because if ever Israel should be in a situation to deal rationally with the problems it's facing, this kind of political turbulence precludes getting to the resolution of its problems."

For nearly 50 years, Camp Swig has offered cultural and spiritual teachings to Jewish children. And since 1981 it has been the site of a Holocaust memorial.

The Rembrandt Group of Los Altos wants to buy it and turn it into a corporate retreat and winery.

Forty years ago, after leaving the tenements of Brooklyn for a better life in California, a close group of Jewish friends and family members planned for their final move: They bought burial plots together in Mt. Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Jack Feuer, brothers Morris and Aaron Smith, Dave Lashinsky, Morris Antropol and their wives were young, they'd survived the Depression and World War II, and they wanted to have fun. The burial society became a club called the Amity Lodge.

Some people apparently are able to postpone their deaths until after a major social occasion, say U.S. sociologists who studied mortality figures before and after the Jewish Passover holiday. In the British magazine Lancet, David Phillips and Elliot King of UC San Diego reported their findings in an article relating to Jewish and non-Jewish deaths around Passover in California from 1966 to 1984.

Anti-Semitic incidents rose last year in California, and across the country for the second straight year, according to an annual report by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. But in the category of vandalism against Jewish property, the numbers declined somewhat in California, largely because of vigorous prosecution of members of neo-Nazi "skinhead" gangs and other offenders, the report said.

A growing conflict between Jews and Arab-Americans within the California Democratic Party surfaced Saturday as party leaders squelched a resolution calling for support of a Palestinian homeland. Although the executive board of the California Democratic Party rejected the proposal by a 4-1 margin, the fact that it was considered at all demonstrated growing strength of Arab-Americans within the party.

Back in 1989 when Noah Alper opened his first Noah's New York Bagels shop in Berkeley, he decided to keep things strictly kosher. Now, to the chagrin of many kosher Jews, the chain, which Alper sold in 1996, has gone treif. In other words, Noah's is no longer kosher.
