The head of a Dallas communications company said Thursday that he and his associates now see "with different eyes" the firm's controversial series of animated Bible videos that have been accused of containing anti-Jewish stereotypes and interpretations of the Scriptures. However, after meeting with Jewish leaders, he declined to say what, if any, changes would be made in the series that is being sold through television ads and in shopping malls.

The Jewish Music Festival opened a four-night run at the Knitting Factory on Tuesday with a rousing set of tunes from Hollywood Klezmer. Although the group's glitzy name may have suggested otherwise, the program had a solidly traditional quality. And that was just fine for the moderate-sized but highly enthusiastic crowd, who reacted in spirited fashion to numbers that embraced such pop-derived numbers as "And the Angels Sing" and "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen."

His arms flecked with red marker, 4-year-old Brandon Kingsley balanced himself on the back of a Lilliputian-sized blue chair in the preschool room and looked disdainfully at his friend. "I like Yom Kippur better," Brandon said. "Rosh Hashana isn't fun." "Yes it is," said his friend, Cody Sprague, tugging on his black Godzilla shirt. "We get to eat!"

What happens to the children of intermarriage when they leave the faith? That question is dividing Jewish leaders as they consider their response to a new study. "Why should the Jewish community put its effort and money into strengthening the tenuous Judaism of people who call themselves Christians?" asks Rela Geffen Monson, a Pennsylvania sociologist. "If you want to kiss those kids goodby, that's your choice," answers Egon Mayer, a Brooklyn College sociologist.

It had been a while since Sanford Lieberman donned tefillin, wrapping a strap around his arm and placing a small box on his forehead. But, given the chance to undertake the prayer ritual Sunday at the Valley Jewish Festival, he did it with joy. After all, it was a mitzvah . A good deed. "This is not a part of my everyday life," said Lieberman, 43, of Van Nuys. "But I'm proud to be Jewish."

The last time she heard the shofar herald the start of the Jewish High Holy Days, Tal Goldenberg was, by her own account, just a little girl. She has grown up since then. Now, she said proudly, she's "15 1/2." An Israeli high school student from Tel Aviv, with green eyes and hair the color of dark honey brushed back from her face, she knows her mind. "I'm secular," she quickly explains.

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how quickly we see you disappear. Second-graders at a Manhattan Beach elementary school showed up Monday and found a fully decorated 7-foot artificial Christmas tree inside their classroom, courtesy of one of the students' mothers. A nice gift, the mother thought, to surprise the children. But many of the students in this Pennekamp Elementary School classroom, as well as the teacher, are Jewish.
