As the silver-haired, senior rabbi at one of America's most prestigious temples went before his congregation one night last week, the standing-room-only crowd grew profoundly silent. Rabbi Michael Sternfield, 46, had come to confess the secret that he and his protege, Rabbi Laurie Coskey, 35, had kept for the last eight years. Once, they had been lovers. Both were married to other people at the time.

For two agonizing months, Shirley Kobernick of San Diego tried in vain to persuade her son, Yair, to return his family to the United States from their home in the Mattersdorf section of Jerusalem. "At first, I said, 'Don't wait too long, that's what the Jews of Germany did in the Holocaust," Kobernick said Thursday night, as news of the Iraqi missile attacks on Israel unfolded. "I used every tactic that I thought I could," the Del Cerro resident recalled.

In the same nationwide survey, even slight majorities of "born-again Christians" agreed that the devil and the Holy Spirit were not living entities, according to the Barna Research Group, based in Oxnard.

In a region where interest in in Middle Eastern history and Israeli topics has been traditionally weak, San Diego's two major universities surprisingly have nurtured flourishing and well-respected Judaic studies programs during the past decade. UC San Diego, with several well-known biblical scholars on the faculty, enjoys a national reputation for research in both the origins and meaning of the Hebrew Bible, more commonly known as the Old Testament.
